***all times are EST***
monday february 6th-
at 1:26pm mercury in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces- linking the planet of communication with the Higher Heart and planet of intuition. mercury/neptune is great for taking dreams/intuition/vision and communicating them/working with them in practical, tangible ways. there is a capacity to bridge the mundane and the sacred right now. communication can be grounded and inspiring. this is the 3rd and final mercury/neptune sextile due to mercury’s recent retrograde journey. think back to 12/24 (christmas eve) and 1/2 when the first two aspects were made to connect the dots from then to now to see the storyline that has unfolded.
mercury in capricorn squares eris in aries at5:19pm- making for some revealing and unexpected communication or information today. mercury in capricorn likes what is linear, logical and controllable. eris in aries likes to upset the apple cart by showing us what no wants to look at or talk about. be extra conscious in communication today and don’t engage in combat just for the sake of it. if you need to take a stand do so but be sure you are aware of your own shadow that might be running you today. mercury has made this aspect 3 times due to his retrograde- notable in a double square to eris when stationing retrograde at the end of december (12/27 and 12/31). think back to then and what was erupting and/or revealing and then see what is going on right now. it’s definitely a time to watch out for unskillful expression of anger and rage- but it’s also a great time to use your voice, stand for what you believe in and hold your ground. (mercury moves out of back end shadow tomorrow- so today is the last day for wrapping up this Underworld cycle!)
tuesday february 7th-
at 1:21am venus in pisces semisquares pluto in capricorn- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto can bring up some intense and shadow dynamics in relationships. if we have been a deer in the headlights or wearing rose colored glasses so as not to see what is going on- pluto can yank us into the Underworld a la persephone’s journey to show us what is going on down beneath the surface! intense emotions can arise right now: jealousy, possessiveness, obsession, resentment and more can be amplified right now! this is a week to tune into what needs to be addressed that is going on behind the scenes in Love and money situations. this is not a time to be in denial and avoidance of reality. instead it’s a time to face reality and deal with it on its own terms!
vesta moves from 29 pisces to 0 aries at 11:43pm- shifting the asteroid Goddess of inner commitment and spiritual/devotional service from yin, watery, inward focused pisces to yang, fiery, outward focused aries. when any body moves from 29 pisces to 1 aries they cross the aries point- shifting from the last degree of the zodiac (the omega point) to the first degree of the zodiac (the alpha point). this closes a cycle and commences a new one and with vesta in the spotlight there is focus on what we are deeply committed to, what our altruistic service is and what we are being called to take a stand for in the world! vesta in pisces was receptive and surrendering- but vesta in aries is quite the opposite. she is the Spiritual Warrior who is ready to take stand and take action in the world around her. it’s time to channel your deepest devotion into conscious action starting today!
wednesday february 8th-
at 12:29am venus in pisces sextiles uranus in taurus- linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! venus is exalted in the sign of the Higher Heart and is full of compassion, romance, intuition and mysticism! her link with uranus brings new, evolutionary energy into relationships, finances, our values and embodiment. this is a time to open up to the new!
uranus in taurus semisquares vesta at 0 aries at 2:54am, creating tension between the planet of change and liberation and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. positively this can be amazing mystically and intuitively with dreams, visions and inspiration coming in! but this is a tense aspect- so it can also be a rocky road with upheaval, chaos and ‘did not see it coming’ kind of experiences. with vesta at the aries point there can be big turning points playing out personally and collectively- so open to the new and let what is old/stagnant/stuck become part of the past.
at 4:28am chiron cojoins juno at 12’54 aries- aligning the Wounded Healer planetoid with the asteroid Goddess of partnership, marriage and commitment. chiron is the Wounded Healer- so he both triggers our deepest wounds and pain AND he shows us the path towards healing them. when you combine chiron with a relationship asteroid we get the wounding and healing energy permeating our relationships and commitments with others. we have major opportunities this week to see old patterns clearly- so that we can see where they Source from as well as see what needs to happen so things can fully heal or fully end. a conjunction implies a new beginning but often new beginnings occur after major endings have occurred. being willing to let go of that which does not help us grow is key to moving into the new cycle without carrying forward the baggage and karma of the past.
thursday february 9th-
at 8:23am mercury in capricorn sesquiquadrates mars in gemini- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the God of War, action and drive. mercury/mars can be intense in communication with arguments, conflict and aggression arising. mercury in capricorn can be dogmatic and rigid, while mars in gemini can be reckless and reactive in communication and moving about in the world. being extra conscious of words we say and actions we take right now is key. if you have been holding back and not speaking up- then you can use this astrology to do so! but if you tend to be reactive and not think before you speak or act- this can make those tendencies get out of hand. consciousness is key!
friday february 10th-
at 12:16pm mercury cojoins pluto at 28’58 capricorn, aligning the mind and intellect with the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is great for deep talks, being in therapy and getting to the root of matters. this is an excellent aspect in the chart of a therapist or shaman as there is the capacity to go deep. yet mercury/pluto can also bring up shadow in communication- revealing Truths that have been hidden or perhaps unearthing power/control dynamics. navigating communication terrain wisely! mercury has been triggering the separating pluto/eris square the last few days (2/7 to today) so PAY ATTENTION to what you hear, think, say, read or otherwise receive via information and communications. watch out for dogma and power dynamics and instead focus on getting to the Truth and empowering yourself to speak up and to listen to the Truths of others! as this is the first aspect of mercury once out of his back end shadow- pay close attention to what is being revealed today personally and collectively, it can be significant!
jupiter in aries quincunxes the south node in scorpio at 8:54pm, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the node of karma and the past. both jupiter and the south node share mars as ruler of the signs they are in- so there is some extra mars energy at play right now. the key is to harness it so we are taking conscious action and dealing with the past – versus coming from ego, aggression, domination or control. a lot of intense emotions can be up right now and we want to relate to them in healthy ways. finding the capacity to RESPOND rather than REACT is key right now. breathe and count to 10 before you speak or act today!
saturday february 11th-
at 6:22am mercury moves out of capricorn and into aquarius- shifting the mind and intellect from earth to air, yin to yang, traditional to futuristic. mercury in aquarius thinks outside of the box and is visionary in perspective. communicating and embracing new ideas and staying open minded is supported now! explore technology, spirituality and Higher Wisdom in the coming weeks! just watch out for being too intellectual and detached from emotions which is the shadow of both mercury and aquarius. keep in mind mercury is still in his back end shadow where he is navigating the same terrain he went over twice already – so pay attention to themes unfolding right now that can be giving insight on things and bring in information that is key to wrapping up this cycle. while mercury is in shadow or retrograde- not all the information is in just yet. EYES WIDE OPEN.
mars in gemini sextiles chiron in aries at 1:03pm- harmoniously aligning the will and drive with the Wounded Healer. this is lovely for healing around the masculine- our relationship with men and our own internal masculine. healing around our use of will, drive, anger, aggression, rage, control, ego, sexual energy and passion is possible right now. if we block/stuff these energies OR if we over-express them in reactive or addictive ways- opportunities to heal and bring things into balance are present right now. mars is in gemini so the path to healing is communication- with others, with a therapist, with yourself. speak the Truth and hear the Truth and the Truth can set you free! this is the 3rd and final aspect these two make due to mars’ recent retrograde journey- pay attention to what is healing or resolving right now!
sunday february 12th-
at 1:49am the sun in aquarius semisquares jupiter in aries, bringing tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion, abundance and excess. aquarius and aries are 2 of the 3 most independent signs (the other would be sagittarius) so our desire for freedom and space can be EXTRA right now. jupiter in aries is chomping at the bit to take action and make things happen- so we want to make sure we are thinking before acting versus being impulsive and reactive right now. at best we can use this astrology to set things into motion for change- choose wisely!
the sun in aquarius sextiles eris in aries at 7:22pm- linking the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. today is a great day to embrace change and be an activist in our lives! eris shines a Light on the shadow. her whole focus is on helping us what is within us that hinder us- as well as what is going on with humanity and on planet earth that hinders us as a species. she brings up the shadow in order to show us where the work lies. with the sun in aquarius and so much aquarius/uranus energy present this month- its a great time to implement change! embrace the new! open your mind and access greater Vision.
have a lovely week ahead…
