Monthly Astrology for February 2017
February Astrology is a packed month of many twists and turns creating the perfect soil to instigate changes.
The month begins with Venus entering into her shadow in Pisces, the point from which she will move direct in April. Venus will shift into Aries on the third spend the whole month of February in this special place. What this means is rethinking what brings us love and pleasure in life.
February is our Eclipse month, eclipses shake things up so we SEE, so we become more aware and conscious of what we already know. Not the knowing from the outer, but the inner knowing of the heart and the wisdom from our higher self.
The Lunar eclipse in on the 10th at 22 degrees of Leo, emphasizing the message of following your heart and your hearts wisdom. This eclipse is a precursor to the nodes of the moon shifting in May when the north node of the moon enters into Leo. There is a harmony showering down from the universe prodding us to find internal and external harmony in our personal world. The message is to enjoy the small pleasures of life.
Mercury is flying through the zodiac this month, starting its journey in Capricorn, running through Aquarius from the 7th to the 24th then entering into the land of Pisces on the 25th. This suggest that we will go through many ideas and change of thoughts this month. Communication can come flying to us at every angle wanting response. Everything from planning, work related projects, communication with friends and acquaintances, and conversations that expand the mind and give fodder to creative ideas.
The solar eclipse on the 26th is at 8 degrees of Pisces, the last of the Virgo Pisces eclipse pattern we have been experiencing for the previous 18 months. The solar new moon eclipse is an explosive eclipse that can rattle the inner warrior to come alive. The energy of the solar eclipse awakens the spiritual warrior within to take a stand for what you believe in and be willing to fight for the underdog. The sun and moon are conjunct Neptune either pulling one down into self-illusion and putting ones head in the sand regarding problems that appear overwhelming or stepping up and committing to a higher purpose regardless of the personal cost of time and effort. Issues across the globe can arise where the strong and able are asked to help the downtrodden and helpless.
This energy also is a not so gently reminder to give up the “woe is me” and move past the hurts and wounds suffered along your path in life. A great healing energy is being channeled at this time with Uranus Jupiter and Mars aligned. The portal of expanding healing at lightning speed, miracles is happening on the new moon solar eclipse. It will be a time that the healing arts, such as reiki and other hands on or off healing is very effective.
Wishing you a month filled with heart centered joy and peace.

The messages this month from the cosmos deal deeply with the matters of the heart and caring for the betterment for humanity. Venus conjoins Pluto in the first week of February, a yearly event of import as this is the time of connecting what we love and value with what we are passionate about.
Venus with Pluto in a personal chart can be challenging, as there is a deep inner desire for a profound intimate relationship. One seeks it first from another person, seeking ones soul mate. Yet ultimately the relationship of inner depth is found within oneself, whole and complete immersion and trust.
Therefore this new beginning is a new start for love of self, as the conjunction happens in Capricorn the key to self love and awareness is through self respect and appropriate boundaries. Initially it may feel tough or hard, especially for others around you that have their own expectations of the relationship with you. However with love and empathy relationships transform that support each others path towards fulfillment.
The new moon in Aquarius on February 8th is super charged with electrical current to catapult us to think different, and once again it is pointing having healthy relationships. Venus, on the day of the new moon, is at the same degree as the previous new moon in Capricorn, which coincidentally, (if coincidence it is) is on the node of Pluto reverberating the theme of Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. New beginnings in relationships, personal and professional, that are founded on core values and include respect and healthy boundaries.
Mars is connected with the Aquarius new moon, pushing one to stop procrastinating, get off the couch, and get things done. This is an action oriented time move beyond thinking and into doing. Granted the Aquarius new moon has a plethora of ideas and concepts, and will serve you well to meditate and allow for an incredible influx of solutions to any complex situation that begs to be resolved. Yet the Mars in Scorpio square the Sun/Moon will act as a restless friend who has run out of patients and pulls at your arm to get a move on.
You may experience this as an inner feeling of not wanting to expend the energy verses knowing nothing will change unless you do something different.
Late Saturday February the 13th Mercury will pass its shadow of its last retrograde. Issues from January find resolutions now.
When the sun slips into Pisces on the 19th and the moon is waxing towards full, emotions run deep. The full moon is exact on the 22nd at 1:20p, (EST) in Virgo. It is a good time to reevaluate how well your spiritual life is balanced with the life that happens to take care of your day to day responsibilities. This full moon incorporates the essence of compassion and service, to self, family, humanity and the world. Make a commitment to do whatever you can, however small or grand that is of service to others and commitment to your souls path towards enlightenment.
The month closes out on the 28th with a Sun Neptune conjunction, a dreamy vibration. What is your perfect life? What would you do? How would it look like? These are a few of the questions that Sun Neptune conjunction considers. A deeper level of Sun and Neptune together in Pisces is the immersion with cosmic consciousness. Mystics who speak of enlightened states of being share an experience of oneness. The sun Neptune in Pisces is a day very conducive to go deep into a mediation experience and emerge with a heart filled with compassion, knowing the interconnectedness of all.
Sending love and light for a beautiful heart filled month.

2015 We step into February with a conjunction between Venus and Neptune in Pisces, along with the asteroids Psyche and Eros, and Mars conjunct Chiron. A wave of clearing out old wounds, especially around lost love or any psychic wounds from a disappointment in not having something in your life that was near and dear to your heart.
The full moon in Leo is on February 3th at 6:09 pm EST. Uranus is with the south node of the moon and square Pluto. Even with the Moon with Jupiter in fun loving playful Leo there continues to be a deep rumbling from the inner core that urges freedom with the undercurrent of Uranus conjunct the south node. Mercury continues its inward journey of rethinking and contemplation until February 11 when it moves direct at 1 degree of Aquarius.
There is a second new moon in Aquarius on the 18th at 29 degrees, just minutes before the Sun and Moon shift into Pisces. This double new moon in Aquarius, the first being at 0 degrees of Aquarius in January, emphasizes the importance to get it right and get it handled around the concerns that Aquarius carries.
What is right for the collective whole? Shifting from the perspective of individual to a collective perspective of taking care of everyone is part of the unfolding. Connecting with friends that allow your own unique characteristics while being supportive is part of this message.
Mars shifts into Aries on the 19th with Venus stepping in right behind Mars on the 20th. While Mars is in Aries, in its ruler ship, chanting to get off the couch and get things done. Venus in Aries is a forceful placement for her. Going after what one wants regardless of the consequences will feel right, and sometimes we need the courage that Venus in Aries brings us to push us outside of our comfort zone to take a chance.
Venus and Mars are conjunct in Aries on the 22nd beginning a new cycle for love and romance. With the new Mars/Venus cycle in Aries, it is a time to set some goals on what you want to go after that you want and love. This will be the first of three Mars Venus conjunctions this year. The first at 1 degree Aries, the second in September at 14 degrees of Leo and the third at 24 degrees of Virgo in November. In essence there are 3 time distinct times from which to focus your intent on what is important to you to have in your life. The first conjunction in Aries will help you get started, and gather courage to take a risk. The second in Leo is to open your heart to give and receive love. The third in Virgo is to take practical steps towards embracing and cultivating what is near and dear to your heart.
How to work with the energy of this full moon:
1.) Balance the mind and emotions. – Listen to your higher consciousness, the wisdom that is streaming in, and your emotional needs will be balanced.
2.) Find time to play, open your heart to joy and happiness.
3.) Acknowledge and let go of old wounds, especially those that were no fault of your own.
4.) Meditate on your highest greatest good, fill your heart chakra with luminous light and a silver chord of grounding from the base of your spine to the top of your head and beyond, channeling in cosmic awareness and all that you need to know.
5.) Listen to your mind and heart; distinguish the difference between an emotional drama, and true intuition.
6.) Honor your friends with universal love and nonjudgmental acceptance.
7.) Listen to the inner rumblings that are shaking you up to make
changes. Honor the changes that further your path.
Aquarius New Moon
The new moon today in Aquarius is minutes before the Sun enters into Pisces.
This is the second new moon in Aquarius and the second chance to align with the universe the gifts of Aquarius to manifest them in your life: friendships, connections, humanitarian principles of a better world for all.
This new moon is caught mid way between Uranus and Pluto creating a complex vibration. The saying caught between a rock and a hard place comes to mind.
Where in your life do you feel stuck between the desire to break free to live a life you feel is an authentic expression of your soul’s intention and circumstances that appear to be in your way, or are controlling your choices in some way?
The resolution comes by being true to your principles while knowing that happiness is a choice and joy can be found in even the simplest of pleasures.
The Venus and Mars are traveling close together in Pisces emphasizing the essence of compassion and caring actions. The depths of unconditional love and compassion can be tested as outside situations try ones patience.
Mars, the planet of doing, motivation and action, is at the same degree that the next new moon, (Solar Eclipse) will be. This suggest that the effort, thoughts, and intentions you put forth during this new moon will manifest in the following month.
This is a strong time to remember to be careful what you ask for, think about, send out to the universe, as it will hear your request and send it back to you.
The first new moon in Aquarius is at 0 degrees, just a few short hours after the Sun made its yearly entry into the sign. Tomorrow Mercury shifts retrograde in Aquarius and will travel back to the degree of the new moon. What comes into your life today and tomorrow can take a few weeks to unfold.
In fact if you take a few moments to laser point your mental and emotional body to send out a vision for your future, then when Mercury moves direct at the point of this new moon on February 11th it will bring you the insight and knowledge you need to move your vision forward.
We have just experience a Mars/Neptune conjunction, a cycle that occurs about every 2 years. If you are feeling a bit uncertain over your life direction this is understandable with this energy floating around. The purpose is to stay in the possibilities while allowing for the vision to come into focus.
How best to connect with the planetary energies to help you.
1) Settle your mind and connect with universal source.
2) Discover where you feel you belong, and where or why you feel
disconnected- then heal the cords of disconnection
3) Mercury retro in Aquarius is stepping back towards embracing new
4) Find your place of how you can contribute to humanity
5) Feel the resonance that even in individuality all is
6) Read a book that is on the cutting edge of new thinking.
7) Connect with an organization that you can add your contribution.
8) Challenge yourself to try the new and different
9) Immerse yourself in an artistic endeavor from another culture.
10) Cherish your friends.
