Stargazer February Horoscopes

MONTHLY FORECAST:

February features a significant change in ambience. Hinging on a few substantial shifts, the slow going atmosphere coupled with the intensive and heavy considerations of the previous weeks molts into a calmer atmosphere, a prelude to Spring upcoming. Earth becomes emphasized with Venus in Capricorn (February 4 – March 1) and Mars in Taurus (February 14 – March 31). The inspirational ideas precipitated during the Fire transits of January now seek tangible expression. Mercury enters Pisces from the 10th for an extended stay (through April 17th, due to the retrograde period in March, more on Mercury Retrograde here ->) during which perception becomes more intuitive and creative imagination flourishes. This will be particularly resonant at the end of March as Mercury makes a LONG transit conjunct Neptune while stationing direct. A highly significant conversation, agreement or decision around February 19th (Mercury conjunct Neptune, sextile Saturn) sets the stage. With Neptune featured, a dream or premonition around this time could hold a significant message.  

Uranus is highlighted throughout the month, making final activations from Aries, conjunct to Mars (Feb. 13) and square Venus (Feb. 28) which urge independence if not outright autonomy. The Sun and Mercury in Aquarius as well as the New Moon on the 4th underscore this, and where innovation collaborates with inspiration (Jupiter in Sagittarius), there are positive developments and results. Mars conjunct Uranus is by far the most volatile in the mix, bringing about sudden, although liberating, shifts and motivating an experimental or inventive approach. Late Aries is where your chart will be affected, (as are the houses ruled by both Mars and Uranus in your natal zodiac) and the areas through which you can express a unique and authentic point of view over the coming 2 year cycle. 

January eclipse storylines are also advancing, particularly with Saturn conjunct the Capricorn Solar eclipse degree over the first 10 days of the month, stabilizing an endeavor or enterprise that was put into motion on or around January 6th. Valentines Day comes in on the tailwind of Mars ingress into Taurus, which activates the Leo Lunar Eclipse of January 21. There is a strong feeling, perhaps of nostalgia, recognizing that a way of life has come to an end, though these likely extend back as far as last Summer if not Halloween. The trajectory pivots mid month, and a new, future oriented path opens up. Venus from Capricorn links up to Saturn and Pluto (also in the sign) as well as Neptune from Pisces, indicating assistance is available to accomplish the projects that have been initiated since New Years.  

The obstacles and difficult considerations that were present in January are seen through a different lens now and love or a creative approach assists in over coming issues that previously seemed insurmountable. Certainly you can accomplish more together than alone! Venus stimulates the Capricorn eclipse degree over the weekend of the 16th, and a person or resources come through that enables the realization of an ambitious agenda. The more difficulties that were tackled in January the bigger the payoff now. A conjunction of Venus to South Node between the 24th – 26th of the month signals a karmic return on prior choices and actions, for better or for worse. There could be unfinished business to attend to with former partners or lovers who might arrive back on the scene around this time, and where you might experience a certain “ick factor”, this is the who, what or where it’s time to move away from. Emancipation from what no longer serves makes room for bigger and better opportunities that steer you back towards the evolutionary directives that lead to the future. 

MONTHLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Having tackled significant professional concerns, the atmosphere becomes more supportive and amenable to make progress on your goals. You release or complete an objective towards the end of February that frees you to explore better prospects moving forward. Mid month is particularly eventful as you initiate a very personal objective and set an important agenda for the next 2 years. A financial emphasis comes into play through March, though focusing will probably be difficult with all the day dreaming and background noise Mercury stimulates through mid April. Perhaps a trip down memory lane is called for. Closing a few chapters while you are there will make you far more effective in the future. 

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are much more in your element during February, and friends and associates in particular lend a special hand over the coming weeks if not months. Career directives command attention, and you could be working your way into a high profile position between now and your birthday. The New Moon on the 4th spells this all out quite clearly, and is a positive time for setting intentions and approaching those who may have the resources to assist you in your aims. Volatile energy behind the scenes, especially around mid month, stimulate the pre-birth to your re-birth next month. Domestic matters require settling first and foremost. If you have been considering a move, things could fall into place quite swiftly. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The heavy considerations of the prior weeks begin to subside, replaced by a far more adventurous, future oriented mindset. The atmosphere gets a bit more obtuse while Mercury acts from Pisces, on one hand stimulating your professional objectives and opportunities, but simultaneously obfuscating your thought process. By the final week of February, the pace slows substantially, triggering a period of reconsideration about where you are headed next. A decision or conversation around the 19th is significant, though reorganization will be required before you can pull this one off. Intuition in this period shows you your hearts true desire. Circumstances evolve to offer an effortless conclusion during the first week of April. 

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Having confronted the concerning issues within a partnership, a far more amenable and positive ambience prevails while Venus enhances pleasure and connectivity within your closest alliances. A meaningful commitment can be established, especially between the 17th – 23rd, with especially potent and transformative developments occurring around the 23rd. Expressing your hearts’ desires brings you closer to someone than you had even imagined possible. More disruptive influences may be present over the final week, likely echoing professional obligations or tensions that arise on the 13th. Former partnerships or associations may creep into frame, signaling what you are ready to release.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

An emphasis on your commitments continues to grow, with a stunning opportunity to embrace the new and improved during the New Moon on February 4th. True Romance can sneak up on you in this phase, and developments mid month also feature unexpected – but welcome developments. A long Mercury transit affects intimate and financial relationships through mid April, so if you have been expecting news about a loan, alimony or cash settlement, expect to wait a bit longer. There are plot twists in store that draw this one out a bit longer. Professional goals push you to the limit from Valentines Day. 

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Where love relationships (or lack thereof) may have been concerning, you can establish new priorities and associations this month, while Venus bestows a pleasurable influence on matters of the heart. From now through mid April, personal relationships may be in a state of flux, particularly during March when Mercury retrograde instigates numerous plot twists. Trust intuition around the 19th, as an alignment to Neptune that precipitates the attainment of a cherished dream in early April. The 17th – 23rd is a compelling period for establishing (or possibly re-establishing) a flow of dialogue between you and the object of your desire. Easy does it.        

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Domestic circumstances become easier to manage, and if you had considered a move or other substantive change to your living arrangements over the early days of the year, it’s possible to make and carry out a plan now. A relationship could precipitate this development unexpectedly, especially around the 13th or towards the end of the month. The New Moon is also favorable and opens a door to initiating a favorable love connection. On the other hand, endings that occur this month are likely beyond overdue. Let it go and don’t look back. From mid month you begin to get a glimmer of the exciting new order that will transform your financial realm beginning in March. 

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Love and creative prospects carry immense potential to offer you pleasure this month, and between now and early April you are laying significant groundwork for a development. To get there, some to and fro motion is required while you work and rework the best route to your heart’s deepest desire, though the work you put in and the extent to which you trust your inner vision, the greater the reward when this comes together effortlessly in two months time and a cherished dream comes to stunning fruition. From mid month you begin to get clues of the exciting directions precipitating in your closest partnerships. It won’t necessarily be easy, but you definitely won’t be bored.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

The atmosphere lightens considerably this month, and you find more to enjoy, especially with Jupiter now in your sign. Stark financial issues you confronted last month yield opportunities for growth. Sticking to a budget pays off for you. Domestic and personal matters are highlighted from mid month, and although you are likely to see at least one plot twist between now and mid April regarding a residential matter, this is a favorable time to invest in property. It’s equally likely that a long lost family member re-emerges out of the woodwork with a compelling message. The 13th is compelling: what do you desire the most and what are you willing to do to get it?   

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

The ambience softens for you as the more confrontational dynamics of the prior month subside. Patience enabled you to transcend insurmountable difficulties and you can now establish yourself in unprecedented ways over the first 10 days of the month, the outcome of the self awareness and determination that precipitated around the Capricorn eclipse in early January. The 17th – 23rd is a  powerful period for getting your message across. Negotiations are favored. A contentious residential matter comes to a stunning culmination on the 13th. The liberation you have sought after is assured. From there, Mars urges pleasure pursuits while transiting Taurus between Valentines and the end of March.     

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You get a brand new start from the New Moon in your sign on the 4th, and can hit the reset button on any attribute of your life (or the whole thing if you prefer to!) and start over for the better. Friends and associates seem to play a major supportive role to your personal goals this year, and this is an auspicious time to join a group or organization through which you can develop your hopes and dreams. Financial matters come into frame from mid month, with a few plot twists in store as far as where it’s coming from and where it’s all going between now and mid April, though a dream can be realized in this phase if you stay true to your vision.      

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The vexations of the prior weeks subdue and especially from the 10th you are likely to find you are much more at ease with yourself. From mid month, an extended transit of Mercury in your sign stimulates an active agenda, but also reappraisal of yourself during the retrograde phase next month. A large part of this inquiry connects to how you will actualize a cherished personal objective, and while there are a few detours up on the road ahead, you do well to take your time over the coming weeks and take in as many perspectives and possibilities as you can. In doing so you make a discovery that bring everything together effortlessly in early April.

Stargazer February Horoscopes

January was a month fraught with huge punctuation marks, as revelations stimulated by awareness of the deep conviction and desires that exist deep within resulted in massive and transformative shifts in consciousness via Pluto contacts and Jupiter in Scorpio. The reclamation of personal power was likely a huge theme, and where abuses were revealed, it is just as likely endings were made within circumstances or relationships in which exploitation had become overtly detectable.

As planets migrated into Aquarius, a lot of the intensity subsided as activities became more socially and intellectually motivated. The emotional stakes are lowered, and a tempestuous and stormy period fades into the rear view mirror as subjective inputs quiet and more rational sensibilities take over. The new directions and dimensionality of being coming into awareness now is very much reinforced during the Aquarius eclipse on the 15th. In the way the January 31st eclipse in Leo provided a new chapter or culmination within a narrative or storyline that precipitated last August, the Aquarius eclipse mutually offers a new beginning predicated on the space made by relinquishing or surrendering something (or someone) during the previous Aquarius eclipse last August.

The recent aspects of Venus and Sun to the South Node (at 15’ Aquarius, the degree of last Summer’s eclipse) revealed and reinforced those endings. Mercury taps into this sensitive point on the 9th, and a conversation or the ability to finally articulate closure offers a clear slate from which to embrace the new opportunities present from mid month following this very dynamic eclipse period spanning February 13 – 17. Remarkably innovative and intellectual undercurrents stimulate a new undertaking featuring a Sun – Mercury conjunction ( also the beginning of a significant 4 month cycle of activity) and augmented by the sextiles of Sun, Moon and Mercury to Uranus. There is enormous conviction to independence and autonomy with these influences, although through Aquarius networks that enable the freedom of motion sought can be helpful to your enterprise, should you be able to enlist likeminded people who don’t attempt to reign you in or hold you back.

Venus is sextile to Saturn at this time, suggesting relationships that have been reconciled over the prior 4 months offer constructive avenues for expression now, and where mutuality and stability play an important role there are likely to be positive developments. The previous Sun – Mercury cycle (which began on October 8, 2017) was wrought with friction as Venus square Saturn and Sun – Mercury squared Pluto occurred during the onset of that cycle. A lot of relational issues and power struggles played a substantive role in the prior phase, with newer patterns establishing themselves from late December into early January as a result of facing those challenges and clarifying roles and objectives.

As Pisces becomes dominant towards the third week of the month and into March, the ambience softens and becomes more intuitive and responsive. Mars in Sagittarius contests this and numerous squares between Sag – Pisces encourage remaining outgoing and forthright. Pisces can have a tendency to dissolve and obfuscate the truth. Mars from this position of conviction will not allow for this. The most notable contact occurs when Venus squares Mars, issuing a challenge to relationships initiated around October 5th.

This is a period of conflict that can lead to productive growth, assuming the parties involved can find a way to reconcile pettiness, illusion and self righteousness for the sake of the partnership. Give and take is crucial here if this is a storyline you seek to see continue. This also provides a litmus attesting to the strength or weaknesses that lies in the bond that exists between two people. Splits are possible now where that connection is weak or individuals let ego needs take precedence over love needs, mutual respect and understanding. Feel this one out gently, it is a very revealing contact.

ALSO HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!! I’m not the most knowledgeable source for Chinese Astrology, beyond that the annual New Moon in Aquarius serves as the Lunar New Year for all the cultures that celebrate it. 2018 represents the Year of the Dog, and is attributed the qualities of loyalty, responsibility and honesty, with a Western astrology equivalent of Libra.

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
You may be parting way with a group of friends or colleagues this month, many relationships have been outgrown and you’ll get evidence this month that compels you to cut binding ties. You may be starting a new group project or working with an organization on the 17th. This cycle of activity carries you through the next 4 months. Venus nestles in a quiet and reflective part of your chart, stimulating your imagination and intuition. Take some time out this month for meditation and relaxation if possible. Your wanderlust and desire to explore is equally stimulated, though the 17th and 25th could prove vexing in this regard. You reach a crucial professional decision on the 28th.

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You get a sense this month that the winds of change are blowing. Your life direction is highlighted and you may be closing doors, saying goodbye or otherwise moving on from a professional path you have outgrown. Events and intuition on the 3rd, 9th and especially around the eclipse on the 15th speak to this, and as soon as the 17th you may embark on a new path on which you will seek your true calling. The Good, Bad and Ugly all come out to play towards the end of the month, love relationships have a roller coaster quality to them – super passionate one day, trouble the next. A lot of passion is stirring and you find yourself in a highly transformative phase. Hidden aspects of your psyche you may have tried to repress (Saturn in Sagittarius) emerge as fully fledged elements of your persona! Make room for yourself and trust intuition, which is heightened in this phase for a reason.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You could be basking in the love light this month as Venus and Mars collaborate to give you some really special moments with someone close to your heart. Not so much the 25th, which has icky and awkward all over it. Skip this one for dates or other interludes. An adjustment is being made in your goals and work life, and a partner may not be too comfortable with what’s percolating. An office romance blows up in your face. You can reach a dream (or find a new one) in your professional life on the 21st. You have good prospects this month, especially within a creative career or sideline. A new learning or adventure phase begins on the 15th – 17th. What piques your curiosity? Where would you like to go? It’s a good time to plan for school or night course with the expectation of beginning this Fall. (October is awesome.)

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Work and finance is the highlight this month with a solitary eclipsed New Moon setting the tone for the whole month on the 15th. In your case, this will have more to do with other peoples’ money, and banks or legacies could be a predominant feature. Any outstanding debt or your partner’s income could be problematic, it might be time to make some serious cuts or adjustments to the budget. These triggers are just meant to remind you to work towards self reliance, and to stimulate you to your earnings potential. You begin on a path to resolution on the 17th. Venus and Mars at odds on the 25th can send up a distress signal in a relationship. It’s best to hold off on impulsive decisions regarding matters of the heart at this time. Better auspices await on the 27th, passion is aroused. You are busy on the job this month and this is a good time for your productivity if you manage not to overdo it. Projects and assignments you take on now will move you into prime position for a promotion next January, so do your very best work.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
Powerful relational triggers and potential fallout with a partner is possible this month, the hands of destiny are in motion, ushering in a time of sweeping change, especially on the 3rd, 9th and especially during the eclipse on the 15th. There can be unions, reunions, comings and goings in this period, and regardless of how you feel about what occurs, trust that destiny is leading you to a better place and precisely where you belong, even if things are super wonky at first. The eclipse can bring about a surprising contact, probably with someone who has a different background than you, though this connection feels quite fated. A business association can be established on the 17th. Mars is stimulating a lot of impulse to pleasure and creativity, even romantic associations. Things get tricky on the 17th and 25th, and if something feels uncertain, pull back and wait for clearer indications. You could get great news about benefits packages or from stock options you have through a job or assignment on the 27th or 28th. Money comes in from a hidden avenue.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Your work life is emphasized over the first few weeks and assignments will be varied and keep you busy. There could be a sense you are “over it” where a job is concerned, and the 3rd and 9th are revealing. The eclipse on the 15th resounds loudly and it’s likely you are going to see significant changes at work over the next six months. What you don’t successfully manage to bury now will likely demand your attention come July. A new cycle is stimulated on the 17th, a new project will preoccupy your daily activities for the next 4 months. Your home life is also full of activity and there can be some contentious energy in the domestic or personal relationships. This could have a debilitating effect on relational matters on the 17th and 25th. These would not, for instance, be ideal dates to introduce your partner to your family for the first time, unless you like a good brawl! Venus comes to your rescue and the 15th, 21st and 27th are beautiful for growing a connection and expressing your heart’s desire.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
There could be some exciting developments in a love relationship or in your personal realm of play and self expression this month. An eclipse on the 15th and something you start (maybe a creative project) on the 17th will play a huge role in your life over the next four months. Encounters with people from the past (past lives?) could also occur, the 3rd and 9th could reopen doors to these connections. These contacts can also represent endings, and reaching the end of the road where a circumstance has run out of room to grow. Socially you have a very busy schedule and there are likely many meetings, negotiations and a great deal of overall communication. This could be an auspicious time to launch a new enterprise, although the 17th and 25th are not so favorable and should be left out for major initiatives. Inspiration and passion guide you on the 21st and 27th. These are great for showing off what you got.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
An eclipse affecting your domestic sector can signal either how far you’ve come (since last August) or how far you still have to go to get your house in order. Emergency or unexpected situations with family members or flatmates may throw you for a loop mid month. The 3rd and 9th can also dredge up uncomfortable issues, and the best you can do is let these periods be instructive to you and figure out what you need to let go of or release. From the 11th, Venus activates your love zone, opening the door to some very enticing romantic experiences. The 21st is super dreamy and a fantasy could become real for you, or you could wile the time in day dreams. This is a very enchanted, but equally elusive transit and can go either way. There could be challenges in store on the 25th, but try to keep that hatchet buried, as passion awaits on the 27th and it would be awful to have blown off your lover and miss out on the excitement in store.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
Endings and beginnings continue to be a primary topic, as people and routines of your daily life come to closure. The 3rd and the 9th are both susceptible to letting go, and the mid month Aquarius eclipse will drive this home. A new order arises on the 17th and could include a project you work on with a group of friends, likely related to writing, or maybe a theater piece or educational documentary. This activity will be a priority over the next 4 months and requires an innovative approach or humanitarian appeal. The focus from mid month moves to your home and most personal life. You can realize a dream regarding your residence on the 21st and and financial upswing allows for upgrades on the 27th. Adding a decorative item or painting one wall of a room a deep blue will activate a positive Feng Shui, and break up stagnant energy in your home. There can be a very contentious issue with a flatmate on the 25th, and this will be doubled if you are romantically involved, or living with your lover or your spouse. Take the high road, it will save you a lot of of trouble.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You continue to work to develop security, this will apply to both your income and domestic situation this month. A great deal is occurring behind the scenes, as you release the cycle of activity of the prior two years, preparing for the next beginning, when Mars enters your sign next month. For now there is a more quiet and introverted/introspective ambience as you feather your nest and release the outworn elements of your past, preparing for the very dynamic period set to unfold. Harmony prevails mid month, though you may be seeing a very significant change in your cash flow, a source of income begins or ends or both. With Uranus in a positive angle, swift changes come quite unexpectedly from equally unanticipated quarters, potentially leaving you thunderstruck and not sure where to turn next. With the domestic life implicated here, a relocation may be required to take up an offer. Mutually, a financial upgrade may put you in a position where you can gain long sought after autonomy in your residential situation, for instance if you have wanted to live alone you might be able to afford to do so now. A more social ambience prevails over the second half of the month and you’ll enjoy communications and the company of friends. Not so much on the 25th, though, as someone seems to probe you for your secrets.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Mercury joins the party in your sign on the 9th. The pace is lively this month and social activities or a group project could command a lot of your time and attention. The 3rd, 6th, 15th, and 17th are particularly vitalizing and open channels that help you articulate a vision or dream. You can put a personal project (including a self improvement program) into motion on the 17th. This will be the thrust of your daily activities for the next four months and encompasses the next Mercury retrograde cycle. During that period you will be required to define yourself more clearly, or narrow the scope or scale of a project somewhat. The initiation that occurs now is very exciting, and a very instrumental storyline for your year. After the 11th and especially during the last 2 weeks there is more of an emphasis on the financial realm. Enhancements or revenue from creative enterprises on the 15th, 27th and 28th provide assurance you are on the right track.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
A tendency to withdraw and recharge continues. Resolutions and healing processes are extremely potent this month, especially on the 3rd and 9th. Swift changes can occur on or around the 15th, as a Solar Eclipse illuminates the past and what you need to release. These have been rather endemic issues for some time, and events last Summer may have signaled that certain elements of your life are ready to be relinquished. There is a financial undertone here, and it could be that you are selling an heirloom, or possibly something else is on it’s way out that in some unexpected way lends to your fortune. A tendency towards introspection competes with a professional urgency that is required of you through mid March. It becomes easier to put your best foot forward from the 11th, when Venus comes to occupy your sign, enhancing ability to offer and receive pleasure. An awkward moment on the 25th will let you know if you have taken things too far. You could be the recipient of an unwelcome flirtation at your job, or there could be an entanglement regarding your personal relationship that casts a negative shadow on your public profile. It’s mostly good otherwise, and after the 18th you’ll fully be prepared to take your personal spotlight and make a big impression.

It’s a short, but action packed month – Leo/Pisces eclipses coupled with very dynamic alinements at the end of February make for highly volatile and electrifying experiences. Changes are to be expected as well as a very brisk pace of activities.

Much of what occurs in February pivots on the Leo 22’ 28” eclipse on the 10th. A great deal of energy is generated at this moment, especially since the Moon connects to Saturn – Sagittarius and Uranus – Aries in a brilliant fire trine. Here we are able to take tempered action on long range initiatives in an innovative manner. Sun and Jupiter also tie into this alignment adding a highly auspicious overtone to our enterprises in this phase. Despite being a somewhat mild eclipse, coupled within this configuration it manages to stimulate a lot of action and initiative (fire) especially where a creative (Leo) or technical/social (Aquarius) theme can be expressed.

leo-eclipse
The early weeks of the month bustle with activity, Venus and Mars in Aries contribute to a dynamic, go getter atmosphere while the Aquarius Sun enables us to seek out new ways of doing things, and to socialize and express ideals. The entire period around the time of the eclipse is vitalizing, as the Sun connects with Uranus and Jupiter, adding a very positive spin to culminating events.

Jupiter will retrograde on the 6th, a period of contraction that will last through June 9th. As Jupiter heads backwards in Libra, we have the opportunity to integrate the growth that has occurred since last August. For those who have been swept up in a whirlwind of expansive opportunity since, you’ll find a few months reprieve (through June 9th) to make good on what has been offered and to take those lucky breaks for what they are worth. Mutually, where we may have over done things or exploited a bounty we may find shortfall. Jupiter is more of an attitude that begets prosperity, while Venus is the tangible result of it, and with both in retrograde (Venus from March 4th), there may be a belt tightening phase ahead as we revamp and reevaluate our resources, material and otherwise.

Venus begins the month already in the shadow of it’s upcoming retro phase next month, so it’s likely the financial, relational and even creative/aesthetic (Venus rules art) topics we have been working on since January 29th, and continuing through the month will be up for reassessment or renegotiation through mid May. So much of this particular retrograde cycle pivots on the Venus – Saturn square, and you may look to events or developments that occurred January 27th for clues as to the major topics that will require your attention. Something critical must be overcome in our quest to attain pleasure, love and abundance and this will be the predominant theme through April, especially on the 8th and 21st of that month. Themes of duty and responsibility resonate intensely during this period, and as any retro phase suggests, unfinished business. We have to live up to the promises we have made and this testing influence will require we resolve any outstanding commitments or fulfill karmic contracts before we can move forward.

From the 18th Sun in Pisces will offer an intuitive and sensitive ambience, the psychic realm is open and we’ll feel more emotional attunement. The Pisces 8’ 12” Solar eclipse on the 26th will link to idealistic Neptune, generating a wishful, hopeful energy. What may have been lost or sacrificed in the challenging periods that afflicted Neptune last year, can now be reclaimed, or ideals are allowed to take on a new form, as this linkage provides a chance to dream and seek the compassionate, selfless expression that was in short supply throughout 2016. For some this will take form within a love relationship, for others a project may come up through which they can express an ideal. Spiritual topics will be important, and this fresh stimulation to our humanity or taking care of those less fortunate may be a feature of developments during the eclipse.

Sun to Pisces South Node on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 28th will additionally reveal where endings are required. A shift in attitude or releasing ineffective behavioral patterns will be likely as we come to terms with the realization that certain circumstances no longer serve our evolutionary drives. Since Pisces influences the South Node, it’s likely that we have to reconcile an issue connected to evasive or nebulous ways in which we handle things. Situations or intentions that have been opaque now require clarity. The Nodes are coming close to completing the their tour of the Pisces – Virgo axis, moving on to Aquarius – Leo in early May. Interesting timing that the Venus retrograde shadow phase ends around the same time as this substantial shift in consciousness. We’ll be mining through some pretty dank issues between now and then, but from mid May – a really fresh start is possible. Commit yourself to deal with matters honestly and honor the work required of you in this period whether it be tangible or spiritual in it’s nature. Treasures await those who do so.

The final week is the most combust, as Mars from warrior sign Aries (it’s natural rulership,) tangles with ruthless Pluto (on the 22nd), joins forces with liberator Uranus (on the 26th, same day as the eclipse) and opposes Jupiter on the 27th. It’s a very potent phase for very rapid evolution and sudden changes. Bold action is favored right now, but watch for power struggles during the Mars – Pluto square. Where circumstances or an individual may come across as obstinate, choose to transform yourself instead. Mars conjunct Uranus will provide an opportunity to engage a new pathway to freedom and liberation. As Jupiter moves backwards, it again engages Uranus in an opposition at the beginning of next month. We’ll see developments within storylines that were stimulated towards the end of December 2016, though of course this story does not come complete until August.

A second eclipse (in Pisces, on the 26th) ushers in a new mode of earnings, old trends and limitations on your income are dying out. Inspiration presides and you can take what guides you now and build towards the future. Opportunities revealed towards the end of the year can connect to what is developing now, so follow your muse.

march2-copy

PISCES: It’s a month of change and transitions. A job or professional matter may be at the thrust of this, and you are seeing closure in a way of life, associated with your health or productivity in this period. Financial indications are strong, especially in the last week where a new source of unexpected income could rise up unexpectedly. Keep an eye on those price tags, meanwhile, as Venus soon to be retrograde phase is approaching and there can be shortfalls if you don’t keep on guard with your expenditures. A Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 26th signals how far you have come over the last year and a half – likely a long, long way! Tune into your future and phase out the past, you are soon going to reach a crucial and defining turning point. The 22nd and 28th reveal much about what you still need to release.

STARGAZER FEBRUARY 2016

Constellation David Bowie, may you forever be the brightest of the stars in the sky.

February – Minefields and Maintenance

If January felt like a false start, worry not – it was due to the Mercury retrograde phase that lasted from January 6 – 26 that slowed our New Year’s progress considerably. Very potent forces are at work this month, particularly in the first half, that have a very favorable influence on business and commercial activities. Sun in Pisces from the 19th softens the edges considerably, until then the atmosphere is very productive as Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all collaborate effectively to assist us to meet our material and professional goals. Any traction you may have thought you lost last month is quickly made up for. The climate is serious and tenacious, and objectives are highly intensified in the first two weeks.

We do have the challenges of Venus – Pluto and Venus – Uranus to overcome on the 5th and 6th. Uranus and Pluto are still in tight angle, and Mercury retrograde recently brought light to this conflict December 20 – 21, 2015, then again in late January 21st and 22nd, and again the 30th and 31st. All these contacts pointed to hard confrontations with Uranus – Pluto, and trying to break through the incredible pressures we have felt as a result of their square (which has been a pervasive issue since June 24, 2012). This simmering, volatile confrontation between ourselves and circumstances or with others has been a major influence on this recent Mercury retrograde cycle in January. Mercury has articulated the issue, and now Venus enters the picture, appealing to our heart at this crucial turning point. Themes of power and control (Pluto) remain relevant, while the square to Uranus can suggest a highly unanticipated backlash. Love may indeed prove to be the catalyst for a major breakthrough at this time. These are hair-trigger minefield aspects, so proceed cautiously. It’s ultimately a personal choice each of us will make to engage with or disarm the conflicts that arise. (Feeling stressed? Check out the breathing exercise at the very bottom of this post. It helps me enormously when I feel overwhelmed!*)

Jupiter and the North Node remain in close proximity for the first week of the month. We are still being asked to see the bigger picture, and to use that awareness to meet the evolutionary goals of Virgo North Node. That goal is about doing something really, really well and a refinement of a project, product or the self are all indicated. With Virgo everything is in the details, so check and double check that the quality of each part of whatever it is you are working on is absolutely spot on perfect. Jupiter is retrograde so it’s more likely we are seeing the ways in which we didn’t handle the topic (of the house being transited in your chart) well enough. Retrogrades are all about re-evaluation, and on a more positive note, second chances. These two meet again in June, offering a huge boost up the evolutionary ladder where we now take the time to scrutinize what could be improved upon and then doing the work to make the project, product or ourselves better so we may fully take advantage of that second chance.

Mercury (Feb. 7), Venus (February 10th) and Mars (February 16th) tap the Nodal Axis, offering a vantage point that allows us to see both where we are headed and where we came from simultaneously. It’s easier now to reconcile to endings we have or will be making, (most likely during the South Node conjunctions occurring next month, as well as at the time of the Pisces eclipse March 8th,) so if you get intonations it’s time to start saying farewell to something or someone, (and this may be part of a highly internal process, preparing YOURSELF for transformative experiences ahead,) by all means, heed those cues. The intuition you get around these dates is highly accurate, and you may even notice serendipities occurring around you that tie into events that transpired late last August/early September or receive a premonitory flash of what is to come.

AQUARIUS NEW MOON Feb. 8th

aquarius new moon

Our viewpoint becomes radicalized as Sun transits Aquarius, followed by Mercury Feb. 14th and Venus Feb. 16th. The Aquarius New Moon on the 8th harmonizes the forming Aries/Uranus – Saturn/Sagittarius trine offering an exciting beginning within a project or association that will assist us in bringing matters to a phenomenal conclusion in December. With this we are thinking back to activities initiated as far back as 2011, so this can be tied into a real long range project that is currently receiving fresh impulses. On it’s own, the New Moon is mostly positive, though a square to Mars in Scorpio can suggest rash decisions coming out of an argument or that a confrontational episode can be in store. Scorpio can be quite obstinate, as can Aquarius in it’s own right. Not unlike the Uranus – Pluto square itself, (Uranus rules Aquarius and Pluto rules Scorpio, go figure!) the progressive and radical influences of Aquarius are being challenged by the harsh and punishing forces of Scorpio. Conversely, Scorpio’s desire for in depth transformation is disrupted by the unexpected events that occur. Use the New Moon to get to the bottom of a problem, be ready to rumble, and keep the emphasis on the long range dynamics.

The Sabian Symbol of the New Moon evokes the image of “A forest fire quenched” suggesting something in our lives that has grown disproportionately out of control (Mars in Scorpio?) is ready to be extinguished. We will use the best and most ingenious tools Aquarius offers to mitigate a potentially life threatening disaster. The rational mind is our greatest ally in confronting the challenge in front of us.

Sun in Pisces from the 19th offers a far more subdued ambience. A dreamy and introspective quality is present and reflection and day dreaming can be a facet over the upcoming weeks. A Full Moon in Virgo on the 22nd illuminates a desire to rest and reflect. Neptune is the prevailing influence over this lunation and we will seek a soul connection that offers a glimpse into the beautiful and etherial. The associated Sabian Symbol for Virgo 3 (the placement of the Virgo Full Moon) is “Two Guardian Angels Bringing Protection”. During this Lunation it is best to trust your inner guidance and intuition. Avoid the role of the martyr or victim of circumstance. Learn to listen to your inner voice.

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2016

ARIES – Career prospects continue to brighten as any indecision or false starts that were pervasive last month quickly recede into the past tense. Look to the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th for your best days in which to expand your influence or make a good impression. Mixing business with pleasure can have a catastrophic, or at least unexpected result on the 5th – 6th. Future perfect resides with a group of friends and allies, you seem to be working on a group project that genuinely enhances or showcases your talents brilliantly. The New Moon on the 8th can signal incredible developments, though a secret revealed (or betrayed) can prove a highly contentious influence. From the 19th it is withdraw, retreat and regroup. Sleep in, meditate or what ever helps you R + R, in a month it’s your birthday and with an eclipse brewing from your sign, things are going to change, really, really soon in ways you can’t even imagine.

TAURUS – There is a nice mix of professional, personal and social energy floating around this month. Should you find yourself on distant shores, a true love connection may be made, particularly around the 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th. Academic associates can have a similar effect. The work you do in the first half of the month towards your professional goals yields positive results and an elevated profile from the 16th. Your reputation is stellar and your commitment shines on the 29th. A New Moon affecting this area on the 8th can present wonderful opportunities, a partner doesn’t seem to share your enthusiasm, however, or there may be a conflict with a business partner over the direction of a joint project. Rather than sow the seeds of discontent, you can keep a low profile and do your work behind the scenes for the best result. The Virgo Full Moon on the 22nd sees a love relationship, your creativity or child/ren in view. The softening effect of Neptune will help you see the best in someone, highlighting an enticing romantic episode for you.

GEMINI – You start to feel more comfortable in your own skin, especially after the 14th as it becomes easier to express and articulate yourself. Pleasurable experiences in store from the 18th enhance feelings of attraction and self worth. The first half sees you busy behind the scenes, as a work project is demanding a great deal of your attention. Your productivity is yielding very positive results, particularly around the 3rd, 7th and 10th, keep at it! Aquarius New Moon on the 8th can be contentious, a work mate or project throws a wrench into travel plans that can have you steaming. Your ideologies can equally be challenged. Professional objectives come into focus after the 19th. Sun – Neptune combined on the 28th signals an ideal you would like to reach in your profession. You can make an ally the following day who will help you reach your summit.

CANCER – Things continue to amplify in a love relationship. The first two weeks are telling of how deep your feelings go. The 3rd, 5th and 7th are extraordinary for cultivating a meaningful bond, you can easily express your feelings on the 10th. The New Moon on the 8th affects your intimacy sector and Very Serious relationships, including those that you have with banks and creditors, i.e. financial agreements. Challenges arise through a lover or your children, who somehow come into conflict with your desire to make such commitments. It’s a perplexing one, though your profession benefits from choices you make now. Weigh the pros and cons before you commit. The 6th also features vexing influences. Sun in Pisces from the 19th puts you back in your comfort zone, and a conjunction to Neptune on the 28th can see you dreaming of distant shores.

LEO – Work and productivity are the major arena of your attention for the first half, though a relationship also has you riveted. Following the twists and turns of last month you’ll be happy to find a new normal in your work schedule or routine. Venus promises good relations with coworkers, particularly around the 7th and 10th and you will find success with projects, including those related to health and wellness on these days. The New Moon on the 8th can generate friction at your residence or with a close family or partner. You are mostly in your element, but a cranky live in or problem with the house throws everything haywire. From the 16th it’s all eyes on a special someone, you can make an enduring commitment on the 29th. Financials are a focus after the 19th, be very cautious about agreements made with banks or other entities around the 28th, you simply aren’t seeing the whole picture.

VIRGO – Your work life and productivity are peaking (just as you like it) and there are really wonderful opportunities throughout the month to make substantial progress at your job. The love life is also quite fulfilling, and sweeping changes on the periphery can be signaled during the Full Moon in your sign on the 22nd. An eclipse falling in opposition to your sign next month is going to present a major (positive) upset to the status quo. You begin to feel this in your bones by the 19th. Very promising romantic moments on the 5th, 7th and 10th can bring new people into your orbit, or allow you to cultivate an ongoing relationship. A very passionate moment on the 5th shows you how deep your love goes. Fantasy looms large on the 28th, all is not what it seems. Domestic concerns can be effectively dealt with on the 25th and 29th.

LIBRA – You begin to stir from your winter hibernation, though the first two weeks may still see you keeping it close to home. The New Moon on the 8th signals it is time for pleasure, though niggling financial issues can put a damper on your more leisurely pursuits. Use the signals you get at this time to address how much effort you need to put into your revenue stream. The results favor an eclectic relationship you would like to see develop over the coming year. The 3rd and 13th have favorable financial indications and you can seal the deal on an important contract around these dates. From the 16th you are back in your element and it’s let the good times roll, for the most part. The Full Moon on the 22nd sees you releasing something, a whole way of life is coming to an end. This happens in a very private part of your chart, and is the culmination of a very personal exit strategy you have been working on for over a year. Next month your life changes completely. Release what you need to now to make space for what lies ahead.

SCORPIO – You find the words to articulate what could not be said last month as a gentle and even romanic ambience pervades in your day to day life. You may strike up a conversation in the most unlikely of places, the 7th and 10th can bring lovely interactions with potential for more. A passionate conversation on the 5th can lead to a better understanding of the motives and desires of a lover. Domestic concerns are still significant, there can be a very confrontational episode with someone attached to your residence on the 8th. A more positive inroads can be made on the home front after the 16th. Romance and pleasure feature largely as Sun moves into Pisces on the 19th, and you will seek an ideal love connection on the 28th. You are persuasive on the 3rd and 13th. Set meetings and presentations for these dates, you will convey yourself with the right balance of tact and assertiveness. Financial matters can be effectively dealt with on the 25th and 29th.

SAGITTARIUS – The ambience continues to become more social for you, with indications throughout the month for activities and excursions. Finances are still significant through the first half, as very positive circumstances unfold on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th that add to your earnings in a positive way. Unexpected expenses on the 6th can provide an upset. The family and home dynamic becomes emphasized after the 19th, with the Full Moon on the 22nd indicating a professional opportunity that could potentially require relocation. All the pieces fall into place next month during the Pisces eclipse. What you feel in your bones on the 7th, 10th and 16th is quite revealing of what is in store. Watch words and guard your secrets on the 8th. A stormy New Moon in Aquarius offers a wonderful beginning in a communications based project taped right into your self expression and creativity, but a force from behind the scenes throws in a tempestuous influence. Proceed with caution.

CAPRICORN – The best part of having Venus in your sign, (through the 16th,) is being able to put yourself first without regret or retribution. The 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 10th and 13th are all very positive for you in matters of both business and pleasure. A harmonious relationship between Venus and Mars combined with commercially oriented Mercury and Jupiter provide the perfect ambience to not only go after (Mars) but receive (Venus) what you desire. All aspects of life are positively enhanced by these transits. The financial realm is stimulated, just be cautious around the 8th, when an opportunity may undermined by a friend or colleague. People seek to express their opinion and exert influence on you. Better financial auspices are present from the 16th. The 6th can see contemptuous influences in your home or residence. Time for a radical reappraisal of what you are willing to live with. Take care of yourself in this phase, next month brings dynamic and sudden changes to the status quo and you will need all your energy and faculties ready to jump on the (professional) opportunity that is going to be presented.

AQUARIUS – The professional forces continue to be a strong influence, though as you close in on your birthday (or have already) you seem to be experiencing growing pains as you try to define the role you see yourself serving in society. The New Moon in your sign on the 8th can be quite contentious in this regard. A boss or the requirements of your career commitments seem to really be at odds with your personal expression. You have allies and amigos who will provide incredible assistance to you as you navigate the challenges ahead. Things get way better after the 16th when Venus brings her good vibrations into your sign for a nice sweet month. Mercury also in your sign after the 13th brings a brisk and exciting tempo to the daily life. Meaningful romantic and business alliances can be formed on the 25th and 29th. Be very wary of financial schemes around the 28th. Somehow you just won’t get what you bargained for.

PISCES – It’s better late than never where the realization of your most cherished aspirations is concerned. Venus makes highly beneficial aspects (look at the 5th, 7th, 10th, specifically) highlighting positive social opportunities and the projects you are doing with a group or organization. Transformation is brewing and you begin to get indications (the 7th, 10th, 16th and 22nd offer vital clues) that your whole life is about to change. Indeed it is, as a powerful eclipse in your sign March 8th upends the status quo entirely, and probably for the better. From mid month you go undercover, building up your inner reservoir for all that is about to come into being. Professional matters see positive developments on the 25th and 29th. Tune into your most etherial self on the 28th. A vision or intuition guides you for the coming year.
