Planetary Illuminations - February 2019

Planetary Illuminations - February 2019

MAJOR FEBRUARY EVENTS - JUST ONE!

Saturn sextile Neptune:  Things have been a little ungrounded over the past few weeks with a great deal of expansive energy (Jupiter in Sagittarius), and the potential confusion of Jupiter's expansive powers mixed up in Neptune's divine confusion.  The first exact alignment of Saturn's stability harmonizing with Neptune brings us the higher aspects of Neptune: spiritual heart opening, creativity, illumination.  More details and dates here

Chiron re-enters Aries: Chiron first entered Aries in April of 2018, then retrograded back into Pisces in September. Because of Chiron’s elliptical orbit, it spends more time in Aries than in any other sign (and the second longest time in Pisces), evoking the mechanisms that will expose the wounds to our personal identity.  How well can we defend ourselves and our rights? Are we able to express our needs with confidence that they will be met? Do our own needs blind us to the needs and rights of others, making relationships difficult or impossible? Can we manifest what we desire and feel confident in our own life adventure?  These are all questions that will be a focus while Chiron is in Aries.  Read more about Chiron in Aries here.


FEBRUARY DETAILS

Mars, with its aggressive impact and potentially irritating energies has been a bit of a troublemaker over the past week or so.  In Aries, the planet which it rules, it is especially strong right now which can be a very good thing as motives are clear, but it also can create more problems when interacting with the more difficult planets.  First it challenged Saturn, creating the potential for a controlled (Saturn) demolition (Mars), or a block to an impulsive decision or action.  Now as February begins Mars is challenging Pluto, the planet of power and destruction.  For a few days we may find ourselves becoming intertwined with power dynamics that are at the least uncomfortable, and at worst with some degree of violence. 

A fortunate Venus aspect on the 2nd opens the door to easier interactions and inspired creativity which will help to give a welcome relief to the heaviness of Mars on the 1st. There may be a blip of interpersonal difficulties on the 3rd but easy communication will help to smooth the path of reconciliation. 

Venus enters Capricorn on the 3rd, and for the next few weeks our relationships turn from the more social (under Sagittarius) to the more practical.  This is a good time for working partners, or really any kind of partnership, to get stuff done.

The New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th features Mercury in a starring role.  Aquarius is the sign in which we break free of restrictions and find our own path, and the Aquarius New Moon offers an opportunity to create a new dimension in our day to day lives. With Mercury itself in Aquarius, and prominent in the chart of the New Moon, our thought process and communication is activated with greater intuition and mystical understanding. 

Aquarius is ruled by Saturn as its traditional ruler and is associated with Uranus as its transformatinal ruler.  Uranus is fairly active now, interacting with Mars and Mercury and the lunar nodes which represent the path to our destiny.  There is abundant opportunity now to shake up the path of our life and get unstuck if we pay attention!  These active energies for change will remain in effect from the New Moon on the 4th all the way through the 13th. 

Mars enters Taurus on the 14th and while Mars isn't particularly happy in Taurus, things should calm down a bit.  Taurus craves the peace and serenity of a stable life, and in Taurus Mars finds it more difficult to assert itself as it needs to do.  This could create some frustration so it will be important to be sure that we allow our own Mars to find expression through physical activity as well as simply finding constructive and reasonable expression for our own needs and desires.

The 17th is a harmonious day of creativity, love, spiritual connection.  Take advantage of it!

Chiron officially re-enters Aries on the 18th, the same day that the Sun enters Pisces creating a bit of conflict between the need for self-healing and self-examination and the solar entrance into the sign of letting go. An aspect of Venus to Saturn that day helps us to focus and be responsible in our interactions with others, and a solar aspect keeps the heart and mind open, all of which will facilitate the healing journey of Chiron in Aries.

The Virgo Full Moon on the 19th encourages us to create order in our lives.  The planetary ruler of the Full Moon (Mercury) is very active at that time, making this Full Moon an excellent time to think through problems, organize a plan.  When the Moon is full in Virgo, the Sun is in Pisces, asking us to balance the Piscean urge to let go of the minutiae in order to find greater peace and connection with the divine within us, and yet the Virgo Moon calls upon us to stay grounded in the material world.  

Mercury remains active through the 23rd after the Full Moon, and the lunar energies of the Full Moon itself typically last for about three days after the event. 

The 22nd is day where disagreements and power conflicts including obsession in relationships could arise.  However, the 24th and 25th brings aspects to the north node, stimulating us to realign our path in order to better find our way. 

The 27th brings some positive solar energy and activation, but on the 28th, the last day of the month, you will want to make an extra effort to take care of yourself as on that day it is possible to keep going until you reach exhaustion. 

This February is a month with far less dramatic planetary cycles than some we have had recently!  Many blessings to you for a beautiful and creative month of love and healing.
