In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.

I, like many of my friends and clients, have been going through a period of optimism, severely tempered by a feeling of pessimism and impending doom.  We are feeling extra angry and agitated and those around us are also frustrated and more prone to antagonistic and caustic words.  The planetary picture in the sky sheds light on this phenomenon.

There is an over abundance of Mars/Aries energy during the month of February.  The month opens with Mars, Moon, Uranus and Eris all in the sign of Aries.  Be especially careful around machinery and fires this month and think before you act.  This is a very impulsive, rash energy that can make you more accident prone.

Venus will move into Aries on February 3, where she forms an ongoing conjunction to Mars until the middle of the month.  Venus at zero degrees Aries also starts a very important, eight-year cycle.  As it transits around the zodiac from that starting point it will form an eight pointed star in the sky as it alternates between being a morning star and an evening star.  Venus at zero degrees Aries means Change with a capital C. It is beneficial for resetting our values and all things that relate to money or finances.

Venus conjunct Mars highlights all of the things we want but can’t have (at least right in this moment) bringing on feelings of frustration and anger.  Our value system (Venus) is threatened (Mars) causing the feelings of angst and annoyance.

Looking further at the February 2017 astrology chart we see that:

  • Uranus, the wild card planet of change, is conjunct Eris, the planet of discord,
  • Uranus and Eris are in opposition to Jupiter, the planet that doesn’t always know when in stop.  Jupiter is actually egging on the volatile Aries energy.
  • Uranus and Eris are square Pluto, the planet of control. Everyone wants to be the boss. The more we (or others) try to be in control (Pluto) the more each party pushes their agenda and the angrier everyone gets.
  • Uranus and Eris are trine Saturn, which is a very good thing. Saturn is the cool, authoritative voice that steps in and says, “that’s enough now boys/girls, time to break it up and get back to work.”  Instead of fighting go do something useful.”

Saturn’s words can be very useful in coping with this overheated energy.  Whenever you feel agitated, angry or discombobulated, find another outlet such as physical exercise (Mars) or hard work (Saturn) to release the pent up steam.

The full Moon lunar eclipse of February 10 at 22 degrees of Leo/Aquarius will fall on these volatile points.  A lunar eclipse is an excellent time to take a look at what is outdated and no longer serving you.  It is a time of release and an excellent time to prepare for the new energy that the February 26 solar eclipse will bring.  See my Leo Moon eclipse article.

Valentine’s Day on February 14 finds the emotional Moon in the partnership sign of Libra opposing Mars and Venus.  This could be a very passionate and exciting day for you so long as you stop any disagreements quickly without holding a grudge.  Passionate energy can sometimes masquerade as anger and vice versa.

Finally, on February 26, we have a new Moon solar eclipse at 8 degrees Pisces.  The volatile energy that  has been present all month will continue.  This active, masculine energy is an opportune time to start new projects, move projects forward, and to revive old projects that have become dormant.

Though things are certainly still super charged, I am optimistic about the overall planetary picture.  I love that the gentle, compassionate Piscean archetype is prominent at the time of the eclipse.  Not only are the Sun and Moon in Pisces, but also Mercury, the South Node, Neptune and Chiron.  Gentle exercise such as yoga or qigong, meditation or long walks near water will be very healing for you.  Pay attention to your daydreams, dreams, intuition and flashes of insight at this time.

It truly is a wonderful time to:  “Keep the stillness inside of you in the midst of movement and chaos.”  You will be happy and surprised by the remarkable insights that can surface at this time!
