February Astrological overview

Last edited Tue Jan 31, 2012, 01:47 PM - Edit history (1)

from Astrology.com
It's an exciting month ahead as several major astrological transits are lined up for February. And the best part? Almost every one of this month's planetary motions and alignments will range from good to great!

True to form, the month starts with Venus blowing a sexy little kiss to Mars on February 1. With Mars involved, this won't be the most sensitive of encounters, but you'll still be full of passion and enthusiasm!

Then, as if too excited to hold in its big news any longer, February gives us its most exciting astrological event -- and one of the major transits of the year. On February 3, Neptune moves into Pisces (the sign it rules), where it will remain until 2025. This transit, which occurs every 160 years, will usher in an era of creativity, compassion, charity, exploration and, oddly enough, an emphasis on mathematics. On a more personal level, Neptune's historic move into Pisces will foster kindness and all forms of artistic adventurousness!

Unfortunately, this excitement is followed by Saturn turning retrograde on February 7, one of the few challenging transits of the month. Agreements will be delayed, and you'll find yourself acting in an overly rigid fashion about your principles as you veer a little too closely to negativity and self-doubt. However, if you can avoid undermining yourself while still putting forth your best effort and keeping your faith, things will all work out.

By February 8, you'll already start to feel better as Venus skips merrily into Aries. This aspect will add a bit of romantic flare to your month and give you the courage to declare your love -- just in time for Valentine's Day!

The month's cosmic activity then mercifully slows down and gives you a chance to rest until February 18, when the Sun moves center stage to steal the show for the rest of the month. It's on that date that the Sun meets Saturn, bestowing sensible and practical solutions to issues both personal and universal.

On the very next day, February 19, the Sun moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces, setting up shop right next to Neptune. This transit will amplify the best Piscean traits ... while also causing some minor drama. Under the Sun's influence, Neptune will become vague, elusive and evasive, making it difficult for you to focus on practical matters.

On February 25, the Sun and Jupiter join together for an upbeat, confident excursion. And finally, three days later on February 28, the Sun works with Pluto to bring reality back into focus, closing out the month on a robust note!

Sounds like we'll be happy busy beavers, all!

1. Thank you for the update

I read Rob Brenzy in the Boise Weekly. He is obscure but interesting.

Your report was quite clear.

4. So...why am I feeling that "it all goes to hell" in February?

I've been combing over the astro info for this month and the rest of the year, and can't really find anything that screams, "Total meltdown," which is what I'm feeling is about to commence (have been feeling this for some time.)

Did I miss something "big" in the round ups re: astro activity this month?

5. You didn't miss anything.

People don't have a sense of perspective on how important and lengthy this Pluto in Capricorn period is. Till 2023.
And it still has to "peak" about 4 more times, along with 7 squares between Pluto and Uranus, Saturn opposite Jupiter and the new Neptune in Pisces.

We won't be able to bypass all of the meltdowns. That's the problem with reading "forecasts" that mainly focus on Venus and lose track of the big picture. However, we must all be careful not to give in to the big picture. As things are decaying rapidly, just as quickly the spiritual consensus is swelling too. It's like a two-way race. Don't give up the faith.

Most monthly summaries are not worth much, imho.

The reason I ignored Pluto is that I'm tired of talking about it. It's still digging up plenty of corrosion.

6. Heh. That's more or less what I thought you'd post.

And I can definitely feel you on "just being sick of talking about it."
