As we begin February in the sign of Aquarius, the powerful New Moon in Aquarius on Jan 27th is still highly activated! This energy is calling us to expand our hearts and mind, and actively embrace humanitarian concerns! Attention to national and global issues are facing us all, reminding us we are indeed one family in the Cosmic scheme of things! During this time, our circles of friends and peers may expand to include new and intriguing people with whom we share mutual interest and concerns! The higher frequency of this sign is to find ways to build bridges rather than burn them! Group meditations and sending light to the collective can make a big difference. Thinking outside the box is an Aquarian trait that is quite useful at this time in our history! And remember….1 person sending light can effect 70,000 in the dark! (Power vs Force) We have a lot of work to do!!
As a historical side note….during the 60’s, the planet Pluto ( break it down) and Uranus ( break through to New Ways, freedom, individual rights) created an aspect called a conjunction( both in the same sign at the same degree) This aspect in Astrology is the strongest, and represents the beginning of a new cycle. Since these two planets move slowly thru the Cosmo’s, they are now at their first square, or point of tension and challenge. We are in a time that is a critical point in history! What we do now to assure what was started in the 60’s in regards to civil rights, gay rights, woman’s rights, African American rights is for the greatest good for all people! We are in a revolution, and what each one of us does to join the causes we believe in MAKES A DIFFERENCE! Join a group, call your senator, write letters, and march peacefully! Now is the time to practice mindful resistance and change! We want to bring what was started in the 60’s to full integration!
Here are the important Astro aspects for February….
Feb 6 – June 9th…..Jupiter, the planet of expansion and blessings, is turning retrograde!
*First and foremost, Jupiter magnifies everything else going on when it is strong as it is now. So, things can seem “bigger than life”!
* Jupiter is in the sign of Libra, the sign that rules balance, harmony and relationships…so if you are feeling out of balance….now is the time to regain equilibrium.
* Yield on things that don’t really matter
*Practice active listening
*Respect others opinions
*Allow yourself to be loved and supported, and do the same for others!
On a national scale, issues relating to inequality and what is fair and unjust are on the forefront. And, both Jupiter and Libra have rulership over law, courts, etc. While retrograde, any rulings that are either unethical, unpopular, or unjust, could be reversed or overturned at some point in the future. So, have heart and keep Marching….Peacefully!
Here is a quote from the Martin Luther King Jr Monument in DC
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly” Alabama 1963
Feb 10th…….. Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo at 4:33 PM
This month hold the first set of 2017 Eclipses! (The second set is in August!)
Eclipses are dramatic wild cards and some of the most powerful tools that the universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us, surprise is, and get us moving. They shake us up so that we can move from one level of maturity to another, and to a higher plane very rapidly. Eclipse wants us to change, and change we do!
Eclipses usually arrive in pairs, and coincide with new moons and full moons, as solar and lunar respectively. They appear in a family of signs that are opposite each other on the horoscope wheel and occur every 5 and ½ months for 18 to 24 months, and at that point, your transformation in that set of signs will be complete. Once a family of signs is finished, it will not be back for 7 or 8 years.
In 2017 we have 2 sets of Eclipses moving into the Signs of Leo and Aquarius and we end the series of Pisces and Virgo on Feb 25th.
Years that hold eclipses in your sun sign or rising sign will be vital for you and will trigger major turning points!
Full Moon Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius
This energy will place a greater focus on how we, as individuals, relate to and fit into the whole! Under this Full Moon you may feel more social, creative, and inventive! There is a beautiful Fire Grand Trine associated with this Full Moon, so you may feel inspired, fired up, and excited about new ideas and plans.
And, full moons always seek to create balance, reveling that which is hidden to come to light, so pay very close attention to synchronicities and coincidences around this time…they are sure to bring important details to your decisions and plans!
And one last word about this Full Moon…the energy will be intense….so act with kindness and love….we all will be feeling the intensity here! ( Your ceremony is posted on the full moon page!)
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, and so when the Sun is here each year it marks the end of our annual solar journey through the Zodiac. During these 30 days, you may experience completions in your life while new areas of focus are beginning to setup wings, waiting to emerge in the solar new year, March 20th!
Feb 26….New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces + Mars Conjunction Uranus Opposite Jupiter!
This is going to be quite a potent day! New Moons are activators, as is Mars, so this day is sure to bring an array of unexpected situations, and emotions!
It is the last Eclipse in Pisces…so something will end, and there will be a new beginning in the area where Pisces lives in your chart. Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus also involved, it is going to feel intense! Pisces is the most mystical of the signs, asking us to seek inner counsel, reaching for our highest expression. Uranus is heading us in New Directions and Freedom, while Jupiter is asking for harmony and balance. The involvement of Mars, brings out anger and action…so rest assured, the energy this day will feel all over the board.
Though this can be a confusing time, you may feel invigorated, renewed and committed to a new path for your life! Courage, passion, and enthusiasm can be available in a big way! Releasing of the tension and holding on to the old ways can be quite invigorating and the perfect way to end the month and start Fresh New Adventure! ( ceremony and details on the New Moon Page!)
