***all times are PST***
monday february 17th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in expansive, adventurous sagittarius all day long and only makes one aspect which is a square to neptune at 3:49am. pay attention to your dreams for images and meaning incoming but also watch out for grass is greener syndrome and wanting to check out or escape ;)
tuesday february 18th-
at 8:57pm the sun moves out of aquarius and into pisces, shifting the conscious self and ego from air to water, intellect to emotion, yang to yin. the sun in pisces is dreamy, intuitive, magical, imaginative and romantic! the coming month is a great time for meditation retreats, introspection, dream work, divination work and taking time to turn within. there are two times in the year that are death portals so-to-speak. once is from samhain to yule (around halloween to winter solstice) which is the end of the solar year. the other is when the sun transits pisces- moving through the last sign of the zodiac. next month when the sun moves into aries we have spring equinox/ostara and we have a new astrological year commence. as with all cycles in life- before something new can take hold we are asked to close out and complete the previous cycle. this is a great time to detox, release, renew, recycle and review the last year. a lot can be learned when turning within.
wednesday february 19th-
retrograde mercury in pisces semisquares saturn in capricorn at 3:31pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. this is the second mercury/saturn semisquare- the first was february 12th. the closest aspect any planet makes when mercury stationed retrograde on the 16th was to saturn- making it an important energy to pay attention to when it comes to the Underworld journey of mercury. serious conversations, getting real and dealing with what IS (versus the idealization of could be/should be/might be/used to be that pisces is known for) is important right now. positively we can find balance between ideals and reality, while cutting through illusion to get to the Truth. but there can also be some intensity in communication, rigidity, dogma, resistance to seeing another’s view point. so stay open minded and open hearted while clearly discussing the past as you get clear about the future.

at 7:56am jupiter in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces for the first of 3 times- linking the two planets of spirituality (and the two rulers of the last sign of the zodiac pisces) in beautiful ways! this is an amazing year long transit for spiritual expansion, mystical studies, honing our intuition, trusting our dreams and navigating the Unconscious. jupiter in capricorn is deeply grounded and masterful while neptune in pisces opens us up to Other Worlds and Other dimensions. at best jupiter has us solidly rooted and neptune makes sure our crown chakras are open to Higher Consciousness. this is amazing for having one foot in both worlds- material and spiritual, mundane and sacred, 3D and 5D or beyond. jupiter in capricorn is also great for practical application and manifestation of our Highest neptune ideals like compassion, altruism, selfless service and Unconditional Love. tap into the amazing energy available today and work with it throughout the rest of this year <3
friday february 21st-
mars in capricorn trines uranus in taurus at 1:10am, harmoniously aligning the Will and Drive with the Rebel and Revolutionary. mars in capricorn is focused, driven and tenacious. uranus adds an element of innovation, expansion and positive change! these two can be channeled a great force for good in our lives or in the world around us. we are able to use this amazing astrology in our work and careers and it could even be amazing for boosting finances and abundance! we have the staying power to do things in new and innovative ways- so tap into the potent energy today!
at 5:16am mars in capricorn squares chiron in aries, creating tension between the Will and Drive and the Wounded Healer planetoid. we had mars/uranus earlier and now mars/chiron- because mars is triggering the uranus/chiron semisextile that was exact on 2/15. chiron is in the sign of mars so we are having a magnification of wounding and pain regarding our masculine selves, relationships with men, our agency, drive, anger and aggressiveness. some of us repress anger and have a hard time take action for ourselves. others of us are over the top with anger expression and can be too self focused and selfish. an honest self check in about where you are at on the spectrum and where your healing lies is key. there could be intense situations with men or masculine energy people (men or women) in your life today. if so use it as a reflection for something that wants to be healed within.
sun in pisces semisquares jupiter in capricorn at 10:07pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. sun/jupiter can be amazing for confidence, creativity and desire for adventure! just watch out for overdoing the expansive energy to the point of balking at any kind of restrictions or limitations. discipline balanced with freedom is key ;).
saturday february 22nd-
the sun in pisces sextiles uranus in taurus at 6:13am, linking the conscious self and ego with the Rebel and Revolutionary! this is a great day to embrace change, be innovative, try something new and open up to possibility! the sun in pisces is uber intuitive and dreamy- and uranus is the Higher Mind bringing bolt out of the blue awarenesses- so it’s a great day to be attuning to intuition, dreams, the Unconscious and more.
sunday february 23rd-
the new moon at 4’29 pisces is exact at 7:32am PST, commencing a new lunar cycle that focuses on dreams, imagination, myth, intuition, emotion and our connection to the Unconscious. this new moon is joined by mercury retrograde and neptune in pisces- so the watery realms of Unconscious are ready to be dove into! the new moon is at the midpoint of the mars/uranus trine which gives us drive and vision to take action on what we intuit, dream or receive as inspiration! pay attention to what is arising from the depths of your Soul as there is a very practical, manifestable element available to put whatever those visions and dreams are into action! for more info on this new moon check the LUNAR INSIGHT posted a few days before. the LUNAR GATE CALL for this new moon will be up by 2/21 or sooner and the LUNAR HOROSCOPES will be up the day of the new moon.
if you are not familiar with the gates calls they include astrology, mythology, shadow work and a guided meditation to help you work with the magic present in the coming lunar cycle. these calls are part of the Galactic Benefactor membership on my website. to become a member and/or upgrade your existing membership click the links below…
venus in aries squares jupiter in capricorn at 8:59am, creating tension between the two Benefics. venus and jupiter are the benefits because they are the brightest planets in the sky (not counting the sun which is a star and the moon which is a satellite) and they are seen as translating a lot of Light. in their Highest expression they are about abundance, expansion, possibility and more! yet in tense aspect there can be some intensity we are navigating in relationships, financial situations, work situations and more. if we are too fiery venus in aries will be hot headed and impulsive. if we are too controlling and self righteous jupiter in capricorn will exacerbate the desire for power and will adamantly thing he is right. balance is key!
at 10:33pm mars cojoins the mean south node at 5’21 capricorn, aligning the Will and Drive with the karmic south node. mars can be a trigger point for karma and what is unresolved right now but he can also be the symbolic knife that comes in to cut karmic ties that are draining you. watch out for anger, aggression, selfishness and bravado. too much old paradigm/patriarchal consciousness is not only not useful but it’s holding back our growth. dealing with the past is the path to moving into the future. the future is female as they say- i say it’s the masculine and feminine in harmony. but we definitely are missing the feminine element which does not put profit and power over the health and well being of people, children, animals and Mother Earth. tune into what you need to deal with and release today.
have a beautiful week…
