Charting the Heavens in February


The Sun, traveling through Aquarius this month, invites us all to be more authentic and daring …until it enters Pisces on 2/19 and we merge with the divine. What visions do you carry deep within your soul? There is no time like the present to look toward avenues that lead to greater expression.

The new moon/solar eclipse on 2/7 in Aquarius calls for the breaking free of pent-up feelings. Creating synthetic emotions and walking around pretending to feel inauthentic feelings is a frightening thing to do. The lunar eclipse/full moon in Virgo on 2/20 guides us in strengthening our emotional self-containment.

Venus conjuncts Jupiter in Capricorn on 2/1 as we consider what is valuable in the structures we inhabit. Venus then enters Aquarius on 2/17 as we pay homage to the visionaries among us. The sun conjuncts Chiron in Aquarius on 2/5, and Neptune on 2/10, illuminating the beauty in all we have overcome. Mercury turns direct in Aquarius on 2/18…let’s lend our voices to the things we really care about.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Happy Birthday, Aquarius! There is nothing like firm ground beneath us to better facilitate our attempts at freedom. You are more sure-footed as you reach for the stars as there is more to sustain and support you now. Too much freedom can be debilitating and structural support can be a good thing for you to make use of now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You pull in your power from the ethers in order to direct your energy here, Pisces. It is in the endless dance between the sacred and the worldly where we bring the divine into our manifestations. You bring your thoughts into focus now so that you can anchor your visions into your future.

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You throw caution to the wind, Aries, and just let the energy fly. Hey, why not? That is something you teach us all. There is much to enjoy and too much limiting can be unbearably confining for you. You go forward to greater freedom and return to your element of self-directed motion.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)…You have grown in strength, Taurus. You are more aware of psychic invasion and are able to protect yourself from thoughtforms that are undermining and not in alignment with your own. These are strange times where many people are perpetuating their histories of devastation by attempting to inflict the same onto others. You can trust your perceptions and your ability to discern what energy is yours and what is not.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)…Your open-hearted nature leaves you so capable of existing expanded with others, and you do this now, Gemini. There are meeting places of great transcendence and you easily move into them with others. The gift of coexisting with those capable of mirroring our beauty is a profound one, and you give this to others naturally…and, in turn, receive the same.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)…Love gained and love lost…this the theme you ponder now, Cancer. Life is a changing thing and you move toward new places and watch others grow distant. You feel life fully as the flow of things unfolding beyond your grip leads you into deeper places of surrender and compassion for yourself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)…Even abundance-loving Leos can benefit from a little restriction every once in a while. The reigns are pulled back a bit now and you find a new equilibrium. Your life-force is magnifying and sometimes you find yourself moving far and fast in an undesirable direction. Therefore, a step back can serve you well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…In order to have what you need to exist as you desire, some of what is working now must change. You can maneuver your way forward with an adeptness only you could bring to the circumstances at hand. It is as though you are walking across spinning worlds and, as one world moves into the past, you are catapulted into a more holistic and magnificent place.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Sometimes the simple act of graciousness is a profound contribution to bring to the table. You are the one, Libra. You carry grace in your soul and, where others cannot, you bring balance. Do not underestimate the meaningfulness of your presence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You long for the less profound now, Scorpio. Too much revelation can be fruitless. You feel this as you step back and return to the most simple things in search of balance. This is where you place your focus. It is in the mundane that you birth a greater sense of yourself into this world.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Your passion can lead you into opposition, Sag, but now the pathways are clear. You build strength when your energy is blocked, and now that openings abound, you go forth mightier than before. The time is perfect for making progress in new directions.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You erupt into creative passion, Capricorn. Who says Capricorns are all work and no pleasure? You know the value of getting the job done, so that you can revel in the freedom of uninhibited creation. Go forth now and let your passion soar to new heights. Get behind yourself and infuse your desires with that strength you hold.
