We begin this month with all the planets moving in direct motion for the next two months. so take your foot off the brake and move forward with your plans. You can start slowly in the first two weeks as the energy builds around the 16th as the elemental balance starts to shift.
There’s an abundance of earth signs during the first two weeks of the month with three planets in Capricorn and two planets in Taurus dominating the elemental balance. There are also two planets in the air element and two in the water element.
The elemental balance shifts by February 16th to five planets in the air element of Aquarius, two in watery Pisces and two in earthy Taurus as the energy gains momentum.
By the end of February it shifts again to four planets in water, three in air and two in the earth element. So, during the latter part of the month, check in with your feelings, pay attention to your emotions and intuition and get ready to start looking at your life path and future in a new way. It feels right for a leap year! What are you going to do with that extra day this month?
Mercury is separating from Mars now so the argumentative energy is waning. Venus is approaching Mars so there’s a desire for relationship beginning to develop as they dance together for the next 5 weeks. This can develop with more intensity from the 14th through the 20th as both planets conjunct Pluto’s position at 0 degrees of Aquarius.
Jupiter moves from 7 degrees of Taurus to 11 degrees maintaining earthy stability and Saturn moves forward from 6 degrees of Pisces to just shy of 10 degrees by month’s end and clears the 7 degree 12’ point on February 7, where it went retrograde in June of 2023, so hopefully that Saturnian lesson, if you had one, was learned!
Uranus is now in direct motion at 19 degrees 6’ of Taurus and moves to 19 degrees 34’ by the end of the month but picks up some speed in March by covering more than one degree in that time frame. Uranus can bring in abrupt endings, advances in technology and science as well as revolutionary ideas and changes in society and cultures. Being that Taurus is an earth sign, earthquakes and volcanic eruption are also possible with Uranus in that sign.
Neptune moves forward in Pisces from 25 degrees 47’ to 26 degrees 44’ and is not aspected by any of the other planets. Things are happening in the watery element but we just aren’t hearing much about it these days. I did see an interesting video about a floating trash collection device being used in California where the drainage ditches or streams feed into the ocean. It traps the trash before it gets into the ocean and then the trash gets loaded into dumpster-like containers and taken to dump sites on land. Tons of trash was prevented from polluting the ocean and washing up on the beaches. Every coastal community needs one of these systems!
Pluto is at 0 degrees 23’ Aquarius and advances to 1 degree 12’ Aquarius this month. He does retrograde back into Capricorn on September 2, turns direct on October 11 and re-enters Aquarius on November 20 where he will transit that sign for the next 20 years. We shall see what that brings in as it’s a little too soon to exactly tell.
The Chinese New Year occurs on the new Moon of February 9th. This begins the year of the wood dragon which symbolizes power, wisdom, honor and success. It also brings in opportunities, changes and challenges. Dragon years are 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012 and 2024.
As far as Punxsutawney Phil seeing his shadow on the 2nd, I got nothin’!
