The month of February usually signals that midpoint of the winter season. Ground Hog day occurs on the 2nd while the moon is in Libra. This is a good time for socializing, putting things into balance. We are getting closer to the Spring Vernal Equinox in March.
We associate February with the sign Aquarius ruled by Saturn and Uranus.
This sign is known for its eccentricity. Aquarius sun signs are outgoing, eccentric, communicative and love to share their knowledge. The sign’s symbol is the angel pouring out energy from a vase. They are inventive, original, intellectual and friendly although detached -Happy Birthday Aquarians.
Most Aquarians have been going through a trying time because Neptune the planet that spiritualizes all that it touches; has been conjoining their Sun. They may be feeling confused, foggy or seeking a life path with more meaning and purpose. This brings about a spiritualizing affect on the Aquarius personality. They must now be more flexible with their opinions and open to the spiritual vibrations.
The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Neptune will all be in the eccentric air sign Aquarius around the middle of the month. With this concentration of Aquarius energy influencing us, we are more apt to be unconventional, opinionated, and craving freedom from the traditional. Seek to channel this energy in creative and inventive ways.
Mars and Saturn continue their retrograde motion deepening our perceptions. On the surface we are hearing more about covert war tactics being employed by the government and media setting up more of the fear provoking agendas that color the mainstream’s perception. So look deeper at what is being presented as fact while these two planets are in retrograde. Mars turns direct on March 10th. Saturn turns direct May 30th these dates signal planetary shifts that bring change; Mars rules the action, energy drives and Saturn rules the forces of limitation from which we learn perseverance, strength and persistence.
However, Jupiter the planet of expansion, wealth, and opportunities is moving through Pisces a good sign for Jupiter co-rules Pisces so it functions better. This signals a time where we can come out of the depression of the last 2 ½ years.
