ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST FOR
February is the romantic month with Valentine’s Day and planets moving into the dreamy waters of Pisces.
Mercury enters the dreamy waters of Pisces on February 3rd. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces you will be traveling through deep waters till the end of March. What you can dream you can manifest if you put the effort into your life on a conscious level integrating the dream state with the waking state of consciousness.
Pisces is good at spiritual techniques such as meditation and this may be the thing that saves them from escaping from the harsh world of reality over the next several weeks ahead. They need to find the joy within and not try to escape through any addictive behaviors.
Pisces can help the world with their unique sense of compassion for others and their wonderful creative abilities in music, photography and the fine arts.
Venus moves into Aries on February 7th and the charm of Aries is turned on till March 4th. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Aries, you are enjoying your life to its fullest and able to attract whatever you need to allow your life to flow without obstacles. Valentine’s Day will be a wonderful day for those with Aries energies.
The full Moon in Leo at 20 degrees is on February 9th at 2:33AM EST. Both the full Moon and new Moon charts in February have a Capricorn signature showing the federal government if busy with lawyers in love.
Leo is the leader and President Trump has his rising at 29 degrees of Leo as well as having Mars at 26 degrees. He also has Pluto in Leo at 10 degrees unaspected. Could this be the time that the impeachment trial completes itself? Full Moon’s represent completions.
Obviously, this would be a quick ending to the impeachment hearings. President Trump is in a Jupiter Dasha 16-year period that started around the time he won in 2016. Since his Jupiter is stationary direct, it would protect him from being taken down in anyway legally. It is most likely he will be acquitted and finish his term and possibly have a second term.
The future is always in motion so no one can really know what the outcome of the election will be, but the impeachment of the President will most likely stay in the house and not in the senate. If a vote for more witnesses is passed, it could take till the first week in April as Mercury will turn retrograde during this period and will not be out of its shadow till March 29, 2020.
The full Moon in Leo is good for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Leo to reach goals that you have set in motion since the new Moon in Aquarius at the end of January. There is some resistance to fulfill desires as the full Moon is inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces but trine to Mars in Sagittarius. The energy and drive are there to move forward.
Even thou there are obstacles to fulfilling desires, those with Leo energies in their chart are ready to take on the world. Leo rules the performing arts so we should see lots of movement from celebrities to perform or release their 2020 tour schedules. Some Leo’s however like Madonna, have had to cancel their concerts due to health issues. This may be the case for other celebrities born under the sign of Leo.
Capricorn continues to have a strong influence on the world with South Node, Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn all in Capricorn. Thank God the Saturn/Pluto conjunction is separating but still is active with the powers of business and government bodies expanding (Jupiter) and transforming (Pluto) as they try to work through their own countries karma (Saturn).
Those born under the sign of Capricorn must watch out for health issues related to overworking. They are workaholics with this combination. The balance between work and family can be stressed if they don’t go home and balance family life with work life.
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone on Friday February 14th.
Mars moves into Capricorn on February 16th adding more intense energy to a sign that needs some peace of mind at this point. The Capricorn goat wants to reach the top of the mountain and has all the energy and power to do this over the next 6 weeks.
All the planets are in direct motion since the January 10, 2020. But on February 16th, Mercury stations retrograde in Pisces at 12 degrees and gives us our first Mercury retrograde of 2020. Let’s pray that the impeachment trial ends before Mercury turns retrograde or it could be a much longer trial than we want filled with all kinds of deceptions and lies. It would add on another 6 weeks of trial time.
Mercury will station direct on March 9th but will not be out of its shadow till March 29th when it returns to 12 degrees which was its starting point when it stationed retrograde on February 16th. Those born under the sign of Pisces are moving into their inner world of bliss or hell. They need to deal with their own stuff and not take it out on others during this time.
Inner reflection of all areas of life are up for evaluation for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces or planets that are hovering within 8 degrees of 12 degrees of Pisces.
This is a time for deep mediations and rest. Wonderful for heightened creative energies so create that song, take that special photograph, paint that special painting or perform in a play or movie.
Pisces can reach inner states of bliss that is overwhelming during this time. They must however give up addictions to substances that are not natural and harmful to the nervous system like drugs and alcohol.
The Sun moves into the sign of Pisces on February 18th at 11:57PM. Happy Birthday to the sign of Pisces.
If that’s not enough, we have a new Moon in Pisces at 4 degrees on February 23rd at 10:32AM EST. In this new Moon chart, we have Sun, Moon, Mercury retrograde and Neptune all in Pisces.
Since we have an equal number of planets in Capricorn along with Uranus in Taurus, the Earth element is keeping Pisces more grounded and allowing a more practical energy than what would normally be a complete head in the cloud’s energy.
This is the time that both Pisces and Capricorn’s can allow dreams in the higher dimensions to manifest here on Earth.
New Moon’s represent new beginnings, and this is the time that Pisces and Capricorn’s want a new life filled with opportunities that will allow them to bring fulfillment to many of their desires in their professional lives and personal lives. Virgo and Cancer can also be included as they are the opposite signs of the fish and goat.
Ash Wednesday is on February 26th in the deepest part of this Mercury retrograde period and many people feel Jesus was born in March as a Pisces and not as a Capricorn. The residue of Saturn/Pluto conjunction is felt very deeply.
Religious values can manifest strongly from this new Moon energy which runs till March 9th. Whatever you believe in or whatever religion you belong too, this new Moon offers transformation in your life through prayer and mediation that you can take advantage of. Clear communications through inner prayer, quiet meditations or in the dream state. A great time to receive grace from the intelligence of the universe.
May this month bring total fulfillment to your desires. Namaste:
