The month begins with some very public news, possibly concerning mothers, children or our food supply systems, due to Mercury (news) connecting to the World Axis at 0 Cancer on June 1st. The World March against Monsanto last month was a collective response to this energy. Cancer is about nurturance and fertility and climate change has most definitely affected our abilities to feed ourselves and our country, a Cancer nation. (more…) read more →
After the evolutionary tumult of last month, we are able to begin planting the seeds of our new life. As Taurus energy pervades the atmosphere, we get to revel in the sensual and material pleasures of life. Taurus is also about sustenance and stability so slowing down is in order (after the manic energy of Aries). This is a highly fertile period both in nature and in the development of our creations. Last month, Uranus and Pluto eliminated the last vestiges of our old journey and cleared the field for planting. (more…) read more →
Sparks fly this month with an incendiary lineup of planets in Aries (the sign of heat and explosions ). The Sun, Mars,Venus and Uranus are all travelling together to be joined by Mercury (messages from above) on April 14th. Love, sexuality and creativity receive a burst of energy on April 7th when Mars + Venus conjoin, also revealing a new affectional nature that is different and more exploratory than previous seasons. We are learning about self-sufficiency and individuality within the context of relationship. (more…) read more →
The transformation of the next few years is aided by the opportunistic sextile between Saturn in Scorpio (shadow work) and Pluto in Capricorn (tyrannical overlord). The two powerful planets are in an astrological configuration called mutual reception. This is an occurance whereby the two planets can swap out or mix and match their energies in whatever way is most evolutionarily sound. In this instance, Saturn in the sign of Scorpio (the rebirth of passion) working positively with Pluto in Capricorn (destroyer of outmoded structures) can get the job of transformation and resurrection done. While this energy has been in play since December 2012, there is an exact lineup of these two titans on March 11th at a degree that will presage larger global changes in April.
February is the month of love so let us focus on all forms of this human experience – agape (friendship), eros (sexual love), and amor (spiritual love).
We are still in the grip of a challenging and transformative finger of god that is forcing us to extract ancient soul wounding and choose new templates for relating to self, others and the larger world.
Love has multiple expressions–but one reality– recognition of the self in the other.
The Aquarian one-love (of humanity and friendship/agape nature) vibe is in evidence throughout the month with the Sun, Mars, Mercury and Venus all in the sign of groups and tribal associations. Yet, all this free love vibration hits a snag on Feb 11th when Venus squares Saturn demanding some form of committment. If you’re not all in, you’re out. At the same time, we experience a New Moon in Aquarius that suggests we can still have some objectivity even in the midst of passion. (more…) read more →
