This month represents call to further adventures in self-discovery, Aquarius. It has been preceded by an interesting ten days, following the potent Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign, which signaled fresh glimpses of who at base you really are. This insight is provided in part by the complementary vision of current or prospective partners. The New Moon of the 4th, occurring smack-dab in the middle of your sign, encourages you to make the most of this, your birthday time of the year, by moving ahead with your developmental agenda. You are seeking to find your way forward by a unique amalgam of studied values along with depth researches into your innermost soul. For this inner work to best proceed, you must be entirely straight in your communications, and this includes being truthful with yourself. By befriending those parts of you that are hidden and isolated, and facing all that you hold inside, you will emerge from this climactic period of time into a greater sense of integration and wholeness.
The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School
month begins just as Mars in Aries in your third house of communication, siblings, and the mind squares Pluto in Capricorn in your twelfth house of dissolution and self-undoing, exact on February 2nd. This transit brings a moment of great mental and intellectual, or communicative intensity, however it also has the power to heal, purge, and clear your head of whatever shadows, doubts, irritation or anxiety you’ve been dealing with lately. If you have siblings, don’t be surprised if this month focuses on your sibling relationships or powerful events happening in their lives.
Meanwhile, between February 2nd and 3rd, Venus in Sagittarius in your eleventh house of friends and groups will trine Uranus in Aries in your third house of siblings, the mind and communication, indicating that you are looking to meet new friends or potentially break out of outworn social habits. With Venus also making a square to Chiron in Pisces in your second house of finances, business, and resources, you are also looking very carefully at business and financial matters and their relationship to your current social or romantic situation.
On February 3rd, Venus will enter Capricorn and move into your twelfth house, bringing a very deep time of healing and learning related to women and friends, love, beauty, art, and relationships. This important life factor will be emphasized for the remainder of the month, especially considering the fact that the next day’s New Moon configuration features this placement.
On February 4th, the New Moon in Aquarius lands in your first house and home sign, suggesting the need to put yourself first this month and to focus on those activities that are most personally important to you right now. With your ruling planet, Saturn, in the twelfth house, be careful that the choices you make are not based on the fear of being alone OR the fear of what other people may think of you for striking out on your own. You also will likely observe something of a soul commitment to delve into the undercurrents of all your motivations and surface interactions.
Between February 12th and 13th, Mars in Aries will conjoin Uranus in Aries in your third house, bringing another moment of mental and communicative clarity and intensity. On February 14th, Mars will then move directly into your fourth house of home, family, and parents where the God of war and courage will ask you to focus for the next forty plus days on issues related to your roots.
On February 18th and 19th, Venus in Capricorn will conjoin Saturn in Capricorn in your twelfth house, indicating a moment of greater insight into your relationships. It’s a good time to let go of relationships that are no longer serving you or to take the high road in your relationships rather than getting entangled in things that will only serve to complicate your life or bring you down. On February 18th, as well, Chiron will enter Aries and move into your third house for the better part of the next decade, bringing themes of healing and learning in relation to siblings, communication, and the mind. Chiron will also ask you to look at issues of anger and impulse, mental impatience, fear, or willful defiance. As you go along, you may also find it healing to share your personal realizations with others.
On February 19th, the Full Moon in Virgo lights up your eighth house of death, rebirth, and other people’s money while the Full Moon’s ruler, Mercury, simultaneously conjoins Neptune in Pisces in your second house of personal finances and resources. It’s very important that you look at patterns of earning and spending, debt and savings during this Full Moon, especially in your intimate relationships or even business partnerships. There is a potential for healing and growth, but it may require you to be discerning, honest, and potentially a little more conservative with your resources.
On February 22nd, Venus in Capricorn in your twelfth house will conjoin Pluto, bringing yet another moment of transformation into your relationships. A few days after this transit, Venus will then apply to square Uranus in Aries, perfecting by the end of the month. Once again, there is a potential for a breakthrough in your relationships, or possibly related to siblings, but it may require breaking from the status quo, and not being afraid to “stand alone” while speaking your mind.
