The month of February belongs mostly to the civic-minded energy of socially intelligent Aquarius. It’s your time of year to connect with others and to pursue social action. February is a short middling month bookended by eclipses and a government shutdown in January and Mercury retrograde in March. February also contains a dangerous element designed to push you through the status quo with the planet Mars making key aspects to other cosmic players. We’ll feel the strangeness of this time as the month starts.
In the meantime, I invite those of you who are reaching for your best and higher selves to come to either my Sacred Contract class to get the deal your ego made with your soul; and/or the Solar Power group so you can go forward into the next few years with confidence.

Here’s how February goes:
1st: Mars squares Pluto – watch out. Agendas clash. Avoid road rage. Practice peace. Complete a difficult task.
2nd: Exciting day as Venus and Uranus trine. Anything can happen – new love affair, end to an old one, or even a shift in values. Watch the stock market and see what happens.
3rd: The Super Bowl here in the good ‘ole USA and pretty Venus enters prudent Capricorn bringing everything down to earth. I sincerely hope the government shutdown is in the rear-view mirror by this time. Venus in Capricorn will put things to order and rightly so.
4th: Aquarian New Moon mid-day (MT) sets us off on the right note. New friendships and adventures await you. Think about deepening your conversation and broadening your horizons. Ask yourself “what wants to make itself known to me?”
5th: Chinese New Year! Time to celebrate as this occasion ushers in the Year of the Pig. In this overwhelmingly Saturnian/Plutonian environment, the Year of the Pig brings hope and stability.
6th – 7th: The Moon travels through dreamy Pisces as a harbinger of things to come. It’s time to meditate and tune in. Let your dreams guide you.
8th – 9th: The Moon travels through fiery Aries encouraging new possibilities. Again, we’re getting a portent of what’s to come over the next few weeks and months.
10th: Mercury changes signs and enters nebulous Pisces. Mercury will retrograde in this sign from March 5th to the 28th. This makes for lack of clarity and discernment. Your job is to listen closely to your inner voice and to respond to life’s challenges with intuition.
11th – 12th: The Moon enters earthy Taurus stabilizing the building energy. Stay on track. Mind your own business.
13th: Use extreme caution. Feisty Mars connects with erratic Uranus at the last degree of Aries. Hotheads hit the breaking point. Danger abounds. Be careful when driving and using sharp objects and power tools. Accidents are likely. Practice peace and stay away from large groups of people.
14th: Mars make the headlines again when it enters stable Taurus where it will remain for the next two months. This brings a measure of stability to Valentine’s Day while the Gemini Moon stirs up excitement.
15th – 16th: The Moon travels through emotional Cancer opposing stern Saturn and transformative Pluto. Things may feel hard. Take it in stride, this too shall pass.
17th – 18th: Things get a little dramatic as the waxing Moon travels through creative Leo and the Sun prepares to leave social Aquarius for dreamy Pisces. Acknowledge the energy shift and allow yourself to change along with it. Also, during these days, Venus connects with Saturn encouraging moderation in all things.
18th: Energy shift as the Sun enters gentle Pisces. The next 30 days are for your inner voyage. Pay close attention to your feelings and dreams. This isn’t the first time this month that we’re getting this message. Also, wounded healer Chiron slips back into Aries complete with Pisces for the time being. This is a subtle move but a powerful one. Aries and Libra folks prepare to face wounds and heal them over the next several years. On this day, Mercury connects with dreamy Neptune – you may want to check out. Write a poem instead.
19th: Big old Super Moon in Virgo today as the Moon comes close to Earth. Subtle energy abounds. Tune in. Make this a calm day. Pay attention to the details. Listen to your body. Eat mostly greens and grains. Rest.
20th: Still resonating with the Full Moon. Keep writing and painting.
21st: The Moon enters egalitarian Libra encouraging diplomacy. We’re going to need it.
22nd – 23rd: Venus connects with powerful Pluto in Capricorn. Jealousy and secrets, money and things owed. If you can’t stand the heat stay out of the kitchen.
24th – 25th: Things feel intense with the fallout of the last few weeks. The Moon in Scorpio encourages you to hold your tongue.
26th– 27th: Mars and the Sun play kissy kissy. It’s a good time to shake off bad feelings and get something done. The 27th is particularly active.
28th: This short month ends with Mars and the Moon in harmony.
Whew, well that’s it folks. I’ll see you back here in March. Remember: you matter, we are all connected, Earth is our home and love is our destination.
