Astrology Transits February 2019 – Reality with Flow

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. ― Lao Tzu

The theme this month is “facing reality while staying in the flow.” It is time to make a choice about what really matters to you and to move forward with that choice without becoming confused or disillusioned.  All through 2019 as Saturn moves toward an exact conjunction with Pluto, we are charged with tidying up our unfinished business.  We need to be prepared in order to best use the profound changes that are coming with the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and the Capricorn stellium in January 2020. 

January opened with Mars in its own sign at zero degrees Aries.  That was a big shot of energy.  However, as January wore on the energy seemed to be thwarted by the preponderance of the more-sluggish Capricorn (Saturn) energy.  Everything seemed to take more energy than we had anticipated and we ended up with an exhausted, burnt-out feeling.

The first half of February starts off with another energy burst with Mars square to Pluto.  However, this (Mars/Pluto) aspect is much more volatile and more problematic.  Road rage, angry outbursts and hot confrontations of all kinds are possible until mid-month. 

February 1-3: Venus trines Uranus at 28 degrees Sagittarius/Aries before entering Capricorn on February 3.  This fiery trine lends an easy, but active, flavor to normally disruptive Uranus.  There could be traces of a rather pleasant “devil may care” vibe so long as you know your limits and stay safe.  Once Venus enters Capricorn, she becomes much more serious and conformist.

February 10:  Mercury Enters Pisces.  Our thinking processes become less focused and our day dreams more pronounced.  Mercury’s journey through Pisces is a good time to use Saturn in Capricorn to make concrete (Saturn) plans (Mercury) in furtherance of your dreams (Pisces). 

February 12-13: Mars Conjunct Uranus at 28 Degrees Aries.  This aspect is great for innovation, determination and shaking things up.  If you have been putting off a task or project, this conjunction can snap you out of your doldrums.  You can, however, act without thinking under its influence.  Practice mindfulness in all your actions in order to avoid accidents and mishaps.  Be wary of getting involved in disagreements.  The energy is much too “hot” to rationally settle conflicts.

February 14:  Valentine’s Day 2019.  With the Moon (emotions) square Neptune (confusion, illusion, delusion) and inconjunct the Venus/Saturn conjunction, this is not the best day for romantic liaisons.  In addition, The Mars/Uranus conjunction points to a low flash point in any minor disagreements.  The Moon in opposition to Jupiter (big expectations) increases the likelihood that any such disagreements will be totally blown out of proportion.  It would be much better to postpone your Valentine’s celebration until Saturday, the 16th (see Valentine Day’s chart below) when Mars has moved into Taurus and further away from Uranus.

February 16: Venus Sextile Neptune at 14 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces.  Venus in soft aspect with Neptune lends a romantic, dreamy quality to their two-day connection.  It’s not so good for business matters, so relax and enjoy the lovely planetary beams.  The next day, when Venus conjuncts Saturn will be a better time to pursue your heart’s desire and to make progress toward your financial goals.  The key now, and all month, is to dream big, plan well, work hard and then to release and go with the flow.

February 18:  Venus conjunct Saturn; Mercury conjunct Neptune; Sun enters Pisces and Sun Sextile Uranus.  This is another day when it may be best to stick to the status quo, though Sun sextile Uranus can bring in some excellent ideas from out of the blue.  Pay attention to your thoughts for surprising gems of wisdom.

February 19:  Super Full Moon at Zero Degrees Virgo/Pisces.  This is another good time to practice integration of reality with the ability to go with the flow.  You might also consider organizing (Virgo) any cluttered areas while listening to inspiring music amid a collection of scented candles (Pisces).  Enjoy!The month ends with a few, rather minor, Mercury and Venus aspects that will be felt for only a short time.  Next month, Mercury turns stationary retrograde.

Astrology Transits January 2019 – Action and Reality


“You can’t stop the future
You can’t rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
…is to press play.” ― Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

Hurtling into the new year Mars at Zero Degrees Aries: Saturn widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces start the new year off with a surge of energy that will be with us, in one form or another, all year. 

Mars in its home sign of Aries is especially strong.  When a planet is zero degrees of any sign it takes on added importance.  Action, boldness and strife, are the words of the month, particularly around public matters, business, career and governmental machinations.

The planets present a fascinating juxtaposition of energy and action.  Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn speaks to “reality” and hard, materialistic conditions around economics, politics and group dynamics. 

In stark contrast, Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces speak to ideals, dreams, truth, and religious and spiritual beliefs and wishes. Jupiter will be square to Neptune off and on all through the year, while Pluto and Saturn will simultaneously be building toward an exact square.  Mars remains in Aries through February 13, 2019.

To put it mildly, “It will be an interesting year!” 

January 6: New Moon (Solar) Eclipse at 15 Degrees Capricorn.  This is the first of five eclipses that occur in 2019.  It is not a particularly powerful eclipse on its own. But because it falls right at the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto, it becomes exceedingly powerful and can feel somewhat oppressive.  Issues from the past will suddenly resurface and take on added importance and power.

Capricorn is an ambitious, workaholic, goal-oriented sign.  Use this time to plow through (Mars and Pluto) any obstacles holding you back from success in the public realm (Capricorn).  Use this dynamic energy to further any and all career and business matters and to improve and secure your home and family life. 

January 11 to 19: Jupiter Square Neptune between 13 and 15 Degrees of Sagittarius/Pisces.  The Jupiter/Neptune square will be in force all through 2019.  It becomes the strongest now and, once again, on June 14, and September 20.  Jupiter is the planet of optimism, abundance, more-is-better and religion. 

Neptune is about ideals, dreams, spirituality and illusion.  Both planets have a tendency to look at the world through rose-colored glasses.  A certain degree of such idealism and optimism is sorely needed.  However, we can have a tendency to see only what we want to see under this aspect.

Contrast this aspect with dour Saturn moving through Capricorn.  Saturn is the planet of limitation, stark reality and serious assessments.

You can see that we have two very different energies dominating during 2019.  Politically and personally we are apt to see wild swings between two extremes.  That is:  Wanting to believe everything is just fine and then pessimistically believing that things couldn’t be any worse and that we (you) are doomed.

The best advice to navigate this year is to realize that neither extreme is helpful.  Do what  you can to improve your life, and release the outcome to the Universe. Slowly and steadily (Saturn) things will improve.  Though it will be  in Saturn’s time, not yours.

January 10-11:  Sun conjunct Pluto at 20-21 Degrees Capricorn. When the Sun joins Pluto in Capricorn we begin our long journey into the Capricorn/Cancer archetypes.  The word of the day is power, or rather “POWER.”  The focus is both on the power emitted from others, including governments, groups, parents, friends and significant others, and, maybe more importantly, how we express our own power (or not).

There is also an important emphasis on the death of an old situation that is no longer serving its purpose and movement into building a new life concept.  The political/economic machinations that are so prevalent in the world today are the birth pains of a world that needs to slough off the old and to be transformed into a new reality (Pluto).  When things feel too rough and too hopeless it is important to remember that birth is painful, but necessary and miraculous.  The birth pains of this year are only a phase not a punishment.

January 12-13:  Mercury conjunct Saturn at 12 Degrees Capricorn.  The accentuation of the Capricorn theme continues when Mercury conjuncts Saturn.  This is an excellent time to make careful, practical plans and to have business or financial discussions with your tax or financial advisor.

January 17:  Venus trine Mars at 11 Degrees Sagittarius/Aries. This is a light-hearted, active energy that is ideal for having fun with a loved one, particularly a romantic connection.  Sports, horseback riding, and all outdoor and sports-oriented activities are favored.  The energy changes drastically in the next two days, so it is wise to work off some pent-up energy on the ski slopes, hiking, etc.

January 18-19:

Sun square Uranus at 28 Degrees Capricorn/Aries:

Venus Trine Mars at 12 Degrees Sagittarius/Aries;

Mercury Conjunct Pluto at 21 Degrees Capricorn; and

Mars Square Saturn at 13 Degrees Aries/Capricorn).

Expect the unexpected with Sun square Uranus!  This is fantastic energy for sudden insights and for moving forward in a new, uncharted venture.  However, be forewarned, anything can and will happen.  Be open to unexpected events and enjoy the ride!

Social and political matters could reach a boiling point and polarization could reach new levels (Mercury conjunct Pluto).  Mars square Saturn pits the need to act (and act now) with the need to be careful and to observe rules and limitations.  Watch for a conflict between the old way of doing, being and thinking with the more progressive view, especially as it relates to government.

January 20-21: Total Lunar Eclipse at Zero Degrees 52 Minutes Leo/Aquarius with the Moon Square Uranus.  The Moon is square Uranus making this eclipse a time of emotional, rapid-fire mood swings and impulsive and erratic actions.Resist the temptation to make sudden changes and, if possible, hold off on making important decisions.  This lunar eclipse will most affect those with planets or points at approximately 26 to 30 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and 0 to 6 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.


End of January:  Mars trines Jupiter on the 25th brings high motivation and the will to take action.

The Sun conjunct Mercury on the 29th is an excellent day to handle communication matters of all kinds.

Saturn sextile Neptune on the 30th is an opportune time to put your dreams into action.  The Saturn reality will stabilize your Neptunian pie-in-the-sky dreams.

Overall, the theme for January (and for the year 2019) is to dream big, but always keep yourself grounded in reality.

Astrology Transits July 2017 – Action and Power

Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.  Joel Osteen

 


The dominant energy throughout the month of July 2017 is power and anger.  How we use our power and how we let others usurp our power and/or control us. Lock step along with the power issue is the question of how we handle the anger that arises from those power issues.


The month opens with Mars in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn.  Mars is activity, anger, aggression, combativeness and “me first” “then you.” Pluto is the planet of power, control, transformation, revealer of secrets and single-minded determination.


Opposition aspects present a tug-of-war dynamic. They set up an either/or scenario.  When one side of the opposition is feeling good and on top of the situation the other side is feeling down and trying to regain dominance (picture a teeter/totter up and down, up and down).


Also prominent this month are dual T-squares in cardinal signs denoting the desire to take action and to get things moving.  All of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) will be zapped but Cancer and Capricorn will feel it the most because of the Cancer/Capricorn opposition.
 


Because the sky is a continuously changing picture, the aspects will shift a little throughout the month and become stronger or weaker, but the overall energy will remain.


July 4 brings Mercury square Uranus.  Lots of volatility here around ideas and communication.  Watch for brilliant ideas or conversations or maybe just far-out crazy, unpredictable, erratic communication that startles and shakes you up. Sound familiar?


Also on July 4th Jupiter quincunx Neptune urges you to use your optimism and faith (Jupiter) to achieve your dreams and aspirations and to attune to your highest self (Neptune).  The quincunx is an aspect of irritation.  It is like a fly buzzing in your face that won’t go away or an alarm clock that just keeps blaring away.  It isn’t in your face like a square, but you must attend to something to make it useful and to make the nagging go away.


On July 5th and 6th the Sun square Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing.  Overload and overwhelm are followed by a tendency to idealize and to ignore warning signs when the Sun trines Neptune. The high spiritual side of these aspects is that there is  no better time to connect with your true self and to get in touch with, and to progress toward your true life path.


The powerful full Moon in Capricorn on July 9 sets off the T-squares and the potent line up of Pluto opposing Sun and Mars.  This formidable energy can bring earthquakes, explosions, fires and other natural upheavals as well as all manner of human-caused calamities. On a positive note, this powerful Moon can shake things loose, get you unstuck and propel you towards making any needed changes in your life.  You will know what those changes are.


On July 17 Mars squares Uranus and then the Sun squares Uranus on July 20.  Danger abounds.  We want
excitement and change and rebellion runs rampant.  This is a signature for accidents, wars (don’t be alarmed even neighborhood conflicts qualify) and upheaval.  It is also a signature for brilliant ideas, stunning breakthroughs, technological advances and breath taking insights.  The key here is to let the energy move you forward without destroying everything that has already been built.  Use Saturn retrograde, which is trine Uranus, to modulate the overly stimulating atmosphere and to set limits.


More of the same is the watchword on July 23 when the Leo new Moon conjuncts Mars (and of course conjuncts the Sun)and fosters emotional (Moon), aggressive (Mars) feelings.  On July 24 when Mercury trines Uranus pay attention to hunches and “crazy” ideas, which might actually be crazy or might be brilliant and of genius level.


You might ask:  “Where is the silver lining in all of these crazy, angry, power hungry planets this month?’  Here are some thoughts to help you use this month’s energy in the most optimum way:
 

  • The impetus to action is at an all time high – use the energy to move forward on any well-thought-out plans,
  • The push to change the status quo is going through the roof. This is an especially beneficial energy for those who have been stuck in some way. The planets are now giving you a literal “kick in the pants” to act and change and move.
  • The need to take control of your life can be truly life changing in a positive way. The saying that “you are in control of your destiny” now takes on new and important meaning.
  • Listen to your “crazy” Uranus-inspired ideas. Many of them will be truly crazy, but there is most likely a spark of genius in at least one of them that can be useful.
  • At the Leo new moon start something new. Your creativity will be at an all-time high, and your leadership qualities are ready to be tested. Leos, in particular, need to pay attention!
  • Finally, just go with the flow. Take precautions, but don’t become fearful.


When all is said and done you might look back on the month as one of the most exciting times of your life!
