February is an interesting month in many ways. It is like we are entering our own little Age of Aquarius phase. Can you feel it? Can you? It might feel like this…..
Are you ready to break free from some of the restrictions you have imposed on yourself?
How about that rebel within, are you ready to let that person out? How about the groups you belong to, are they changing or have you outgrown them? Maybe it is time to start a new group of your own.
With 5 planets hanging out in Aquarius for the next few weeks and soon to be New Moon in that sign, we are all getting a strong dose what it is like to be one. It might feel weird to some of us who have no Aquarius planets to all of a sudden be thinking and feeling differently. Being pushed to do new things by the voice in our heads.
The good news is we can create like never before from this place. Full of ideas and ideals, stepping away from what is normal and coloring outside the lines.
Aquarius is analytical, unconventional, idealistic, unpredictable, rebellious, stubborn.
Aquarius is very analytical and also unconventional, idealistic and unpredictable, rebellious and stubborn. Aquarius can be intellectual and logical, and also incredibly insightful especially if they learn to trust their intuition.
Even if you don’t have any planets in Aquarius, we all have 30 degrees of Aquarius in our charts somewhere. That area of your chart is now highlighted and will be a focus for a long time to come. If you don’t have your chart yet and would like a copy, please email me your birth information and I will get it to you and tell you where your Aquarius resides in your chart. firstname.lastname@example.org
The whole month of February and the first half of March the Astrology is dominate with the element of Air, there is a little bit of Earth and Water. With the exception of the Moon a few times a month we have no planets in Fire signs till Venus enters Aries in March. This means with the abundance of Air = Aquarius we could very well become fixated on a thought, process or idea. So much so we might not find the motivation to do anything but plan, plan, plan. No Fire in a chart means it takes a lot to motivate us into action. If you find yourself longing for the changes you feel you need than plan around the Moon. Act when the Moon is in the fire signs and in her waxing phase those dates are February 14, 15, 16, 24, 25 and half of the 26th. Those will be action days this month.
Venus in Aquarius
Let’s look at few specific transits for the coming few weeks. Venus entered Aquarius on February 1 and will remain in this sign till February 25. When Venus is in this sign our romantic focus may be unusual for us and unconventional. Venus is also in charge of money and we are already seeing how that can be manipulated by looking at, for example the stock market and how recently a few people on Reddit raise the price of the stock for GameStop. Electronically manipulating the value of something. Things like Bitcoin and other forms of electronic monies will most likely be highlighted over the coming weeks.
Then there is also the quirkiness of Venus in Aquarius which may show up in the purchases we make buying something that is quite different than what is normal for you. Clothing, a piece of art, electronics etc.
While in Aquarius Venus will join up with Saturn on Friday night – Saturday morning February 5/6. Venus and Saturn together in Aquarius represent a more somber feel then what the uniqueness of Aquarius would like. This is a transit and will only last a few days so if you need to be serious about something in this time frame, this will do it.
Venus Square Uranus
However on the same day just at the other end of it, Venus in Aquarius will square off with Uranus in Taurus at 10:30 PM EST. They are currently in each other’s signs so that means there is some symbiotic activity happening. The square between these two can create electricity in the air between you and your partner. If something in your relationship has gone stale this transit will shake things up.
We might even, for some unknown reason, feel like picking a fight. If this happens it usually means the two of you need to get something out in the open and neither of you have been willing to address it thus far. That’s just one example and it will not be the case for everyone.
On the evening of February 9 at 8:20 PM the Moon enters Aquarius and we now have six planets in the sign of Aquarius. On February 10th and 11th the Moon will make its conjunction to all of the other Aquarius planets. The Moon will conjunct Saturn, square Uranus, conjunct Venus, conjunct Jupiter, conjunct Mercury, all while she is in the final lunar phase of this monthly cycle.
Time for letting go
What this means is from Tuesday night the 9th until the Moon is New on February 11th at 2:06 PM EST the balsamic Moon in Aquarius will stir up things that we should be letting go of. I recommend you re-read the first few sentences of this report for those important key words and focus for the final Lunar phase. I also recommend you spend some time releasing, becoming aware of the bad habits or ways of thinking you want to release. I know it takes practice to change our mindset but now is the time to do it. Mediation helps with this. When we release those old narratives we than have room for new and more energizing thoughts and ideas to enter. Times are so powerful right now for you to make the changes you have been wanting.
New Moon in Aquarius
The New Moon in Aquarius is February 11 at 2:06 PM EST at 23 degrees. Over the coming 48 hours or so open up your journals, write down your hopes and dreams, set goals and welcome in new ideas. Make this very personal and use some of the qualities I have already described about Aquarius in your writings or drawings. Leave room for the unique and unknown as Aquarius is not always a rule follower.
The energy coming up to the Valentine’s Day we have Venus, Mercury and Jupiter piling up between the 11th and the 14th. Valentine’s Day – relationships a lot of unique open and honest conversations will be had.
Let’s finish up this report with February 17th, today is the first square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. They will square off two more times this year June 14th and December 24th. What does it mean when Saturn squares Uranus? It means we need structure and change; and we need to be careful not to destroy everything for the sake of change.
We’re trying to create a new world from an old foundation that may or may not be stable. Of course we can see that in our government, but I want you to look at it from a personal perspective.
Are you continuing to do the same old thing but you’re expecting different results? Do your work, make some space, when you’re inspired go for it wholeheartedly. If you feel you’re stuck and continuing to loop around find somebody who can help you get out of that looping phase. I can do that with your Astrology if you like. This will help you to release the things that are no longer supposed to be part of your future and it creates that space for the uniqueness, creative inventiveness of Aquarius to enter.
