monday february 11th-
the first aspect of the day and week is exact at 6:46pm when the sun in aquarius sextiles eris in aries, linking the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. just like on 2/6 when mercury linked with eris- today is a great day to embrace change and be an activist in our lives! eris shines a Light on the shadow. her whole focus is on helping us what is within us that hinder us- as well as what is going on with humanity and on planet earth that hinders us as a species. she brings up the shadow in order to show us where the work lies. with the sun in aquarius and so much aquarius/uranus energy present this month- its a great time to implement change! embrace the new! open your mind and access greater Vision.
tuesday february 12th-
at 10:20pm mars cojoins uranus at 29’11 aries, linking the will and drive with the Rebel and Revolutionary! mars/uranus is a powerful aspect. if the will and ego is serving change and evolution this can be absolutely amazing. the key is we have to make sure we are not coming from ego, reactivity and impulsivity as actions taken/words said in haste can cost us. this is also at the karmic 29th degree- which makes it extra potent. anything unresolved in the last 7 years journey of uranus in aries can come up to be address. the entry of uranus into aries coincide with fukushima (uranus at 29 pisces into 0 aries) and this was also the time that the 99% and occupy movement began with a lot of rebellions erupting around the world. the Highest focus of uranus in aries is waking up the individual so she/he is not just a sheep following the crowd but is a full blooded individual willing to take a stand for what is right. of course there is a shadow to this transit and that is the activation of a lot of people’s (and country’s) repressed anger and rage- which has come out in explosive ways in terms of shootings, wars and power dynamics. use this energy wisely- be willing to embrace change and better yet bet the agent of it!
wednesday february 13th-
mars at 29 aries opposes pallas at 29 libra at 4:57am, creating tension between the warrior and the wisdom Goddess. last thursday the 7th uranus opposed pallas and today mars does so- just after his massive activation with uranus yesterday. can you feel the chaos energy brewing!?! uranus at 29 aries is seeking to bring up all the unresolved, unacknowledged energy that needs facing, integrating and/or releasing before we can move into a new 7 year uranus cycle (uranus will move into taurus next month in the dark of the moon before the pisces new moon 3/6). mars/uranus is saying TAKE A STAND FOR TRUTH. the key is to make sure we are not being reactive, aggressive or impulsive while at the same time not being so peaceful and loving that we cannot set proper boundaries. opportunities to take action are present but we want to be very clear on what we are setting into motion. the 29th degree is a time to complete karma- not create more that will carry over into the next cycle!
mercury cojoins vesta at 6’09 pisces at 12:38pm, aligning the mind and intellect with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. this is a great day to commit ourselves to thinking and communicating that is focused on being of service. vesta is deeply dedicated and when we are dedicated to something Higher than ourselves our minds are expansive and willing to both hear and speak Truth. pay attention to your intuition and imagination right now- many message can be forthcoming! this week the pluto/eris square triggers vesta- so prepare for some radical revolutionary energy playing out in your spiritual path, your awareness, your commitments and more. stay true to your Heart. be a warrior for Truth!
at 7:02pm mars at 29 aries semisextiles chiron at 29 pisces, linking the warrior with the Wounded Healer. right off the heels of the mars/uranus conjunction we have mars/chiron helping us see where our wounds may be running us and where the best action we can take is in service to healing- ourselves, others and the world around us. of course mars in aries is very focused externally so if we are not turning our gaze within mars/chiron can be a reminder to pay attention to what is going on in the Unconscious as it drives all our desires and actions until we can face it.
the sun in aquarius quincunxes the north node in cancer at 9:33pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the north node of destiny and evolution. similar to the mercury/north node quincunx on 2/7- this is a time to check in to see where we may be avoiding facing our emotions and feelings and defaulting to the mind, to detachment and being stuck in the head. the sun in aquarius values space and freedom but sometimes this is covering fear of intimacy and vulnerability. checking in to see what is running us behind the scenes is key.
thursday february 14th-
happy valentine’s day! the first aspect of the day is at 12:30am when mercury in pisces semisquares pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. this can make for some intense communication, realizations, information and aha moments incoming. mercury/pluto is great for therapy and shadow work but can exacerbate tendencies to power/control dynamics in communication. this occurs in the early morning hours so pay attention to what comes to you in the dreamtime! throughout the day mercury triggers the pluto/eris square- big changes and revelations incoming!!!
mars moves out of aries and into taurus at 2:51am, shifting the will and drive from fire to earth, yang to yin, acting NOW to slowing down and smelling the roses. mars is not in his best position in taurus as taurus is a venus-ruled sign and opposite one of the signs he rules (scorpio)- so mars is in his ‘fall’ in taurus. at best mars in taurus slows the f*** down. mars in aries wanted what he wanted and he wanted it NOW (or yesterday)- but mars in taurus thinks first before acting and can help us ground down more so we are not acting from inflamed passions but are actually thinking about actions taken or words said. the shadow is mars in taurus can be lazy and not move at all. we need to find a balance right now ;) with all the intensity of late i imagine mars into taurus will be a welcome shift! enjoy embodied existence. get a massage, go hiking, stop to smell the roses, savor every morsel you taste. life goes by so fast and we end up missing so much! now is a time to slow down and enjoy :)
mercury in pisces semisquares eris in aries at 2:46pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! mercury is triggering the pluto/eris square today- an aspect that is exact next year but really gets going this year and particularly this month and NEXT MONTH as eris will square the nodes and pluto will cojoin the south node in late march early april. eris likes to reveal the shit and shadow. everything no one wants to look at or own- she comes in and reveals it and makes us face it and work with it. this is a day to pay attention to communication, thinking and intuition. be willing to hear the Truth, be willing to speak the Truth and be willing to own where you may have fallen out of the Truth.
mars in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 5:35pm, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of illusion, mysticism and fantasy. at best mars/neptune is the spiritual warrior willing to fight the good fight for those who cannot take a stand for themselves. yet this is a tense aspect so it can manifest as playing the victim or the martyr, being dishonest or delusional and being manipulative behind the scenes. i do not recommend this. instead channel the warriors energy into creativity, spirituality and service!
saturn in capricorn sesquiquadrates juno in gemini at 9:50pm, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. saturn/juno is a get real moment in relationships. this is a time to assess all commitments and make sure they are solid, enduring and good for our growth. relationships that are healthy and help us grow can solidify and expand right now. those that are not can show themselves clearly- so pay attention!
friday february 15th-
mercury parallels neptune at 2:11am, giving intimations of the mercury/neptune conjunction incoming next week (monday the 18th for the first of 3 times). from now until monday we have a super aspect between these two amplifying but also exacerbating their energies together! mercury/neptune links the linear logical mind with the intuitive, imaginative planet! this energy is deeply psychic, mystical, imaginative, intuitive and creative. this is a great time study the occult and the mysteries and open up to hearing messages from Source! yet the shadow of this aspect is that it can be really hard to discern fact from fantasy and Truth from illusion. it’s easy to deceive ourselves, deceive others and believe our own lies! this is the first of 3 mercury/neptune aspects as mercury heads into front end shadow of his upcoming retrograde journey next week (tuesday the 19th)- and we will have 2 more mercury/neptune conjunctions in march within a week of each other when mercury stations direct. this is a potent mercury retrograde. pay attention to your dreams, fantasies and illusions right now. be willing to pull back the veil and see yourself, others and the world around you more clearly.
pluto in capricorn semisquares vesta in pisces at 9:29am, creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. pluto/vesta is like a psychic surgeon- the capacity to the cut to the Source of things not just physically but psychically, spiritually and psychologically is possible right now. if we are deeply committed to shadow work this is excellent astrology for getting to the root of things! if we are deeply committed to not seeing ourselves clearly this can play out in other more intense ways. steer clear of power struggles and seek to have power over the only person that matters- your lower self!
mercury in pisces sesquiquadrates the north node in cancer at 6:14pm, making for important communications and information incoming. because of the tense aspect to the north node of destiny and evolution we are asked to take notice of our thoughts and what we tell ourselves and see where our desire not to see or to escape or to deny is holding us back from the evolution we seek. once we see it we are responsible for changing it!
saturday february 16th-
mars contraparallels uranus at 1:47am, echoing the mars/uranus conjunction on 2/12. we have a super aspect between these two almost all week long- and with uranus at the karmic 29th degree the energy is positively electric!!! can you feel it!?! use this energy to embrace change and take action to evolve and grow in your life. watch out for power struggles, reactivity, aggression and impulsivity. if you tend to not take action this astrology can help you get a move on! if you tend to be reactive i highly recommend you pause before speaking or action, breathe and count to 10 and find a way to respond rather than react- not just today but this week and this entire month.
sunday february 17th-
at 12:44am venus in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces, linking the lower heart and Higher Heart in beautiful ways! this is a lovely aspects for romance, compassion, altruism and being of service. Unconditional Love is present right now! with venus triggering the saturn/neptune sextile today and tomorrow- we have the capacity to get real and see what we want to be committed to. what is real and what is not? where do we need to take the rose colored glasses off? where do we need to see what is right in front of us? an open heart needs to be balanced with healthy boundaries. tuning into both and working on which ever one needs support is recommend in the next couple of days.
vesta in pisces semisquares eris in aries at 11:52am, creating tension between the Priestess asteroid Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. the pluto/eris square has been triggering vesta all week- bringing wake up/shake up energy into our spiritual paths, spiritual communities and more. vesta is dreamy, imaginative and compassionate in pisces. she is lost in the mists and prefers to stay there to dream and vision. yet eris and pluto are activating her and asking her to come out of the mists and face reality! first the reality about herself, but also of the world around her. the approaching pluto/eris square (exact in 2020 but gets majorly activated in late march/early april by the nodes) is all about revolution and massive change. but first the shadow gets exposed. those of us who can navigate this astrology with deep commitment to our inner work and transformation can come out with tools and resources that will be highly valuable next year when the rest of the world experiences this transit. the work you do on yourself now will impact your capacity to help and lead others. get to it!
the sun at 29 aquarius sextiles uranus at 29 aries at 11:55pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener! sun/uranus is a time to embrace change! be eccentric! march to the beat of your own drummer! where life has gotten stuck and stagnant- this is a time to be out with the old and in with the new. of course it’s also important to discern baby from bathwater- as we only want to get rid of the dirty water not the baby! with both at the karmic 29th degree there is a completion energy afoot. actions taken right now to embrace change and move forward are supported.
and last but certainly not least- chiron is at last degree and minutes of pisces today and has been in this karmic position all week! he moves into aries tomorrow- monday february 18th. this is not just the last degree of a sign but the last degree of the entire zodiac. anything that needs to come up regarding our healing, wounding, grief, pain, spiritual bypassing, playing the victim/martry, escapism, denial, addiction and more will be coming up right now. if you can stay with it- rather than numb out, turn to addictions or deny- you can do some very deep work on yourself right now. it’s not just you- it’s happening in the collective. the more of us that allow this energy to move through us- rather than stay stuck in us- the better. a new chiron cycle is about to commence! what are you ready to leave behind from the last 50/51 year cycle? (and if you are not that old just think of what you are ready to leave behind from the last lifetimes).
have a blessed week!
