Here is a blog post from a witch in my home state of Maryland giving the archetypal goddesses of Downton Abby. Now why didn't I think of that? Well, it may be because I hate Downton Abby. I tried to watch it but the whining got to me and Mary's monotone voice drove me nuts. There is nothing worse than to hear someone whine in monotone. But I know there are a lot of Downton Abby fans out there so enjoy.
Since Saturn has been in Sagittarius since Dec 23, 2014, I am hearing a lot of whining from Sagittarians, the sign of fun, freedom, gypsies, vagabonds and travelers. Dear Sadges, all Saturn wants to see is WORK. This is a time where you can get some really important work done. With your natural creative talent plus Saturn, I expect some really great original output during this 2 ½ year period. Saturn left Scorpio on Dec 23 and there were big sighs of relief from the Scorpios out there. Scorpip's life is hard enough without Saturn being in their sign. But dear Scorpios, Saturn will move back into your sign on June 14 to Sep 17, 2015. So you have some leftover work to do.
Saturn Transit in Sagittarius is Dec 23, 2014 to June 14, 2015 and Sept 17, 2015 to December 19, 2017.
This is a fairly calm month, but we are still in orb of the 7th and last Pluto Square Uranus which will be exact on March 17. This month they are only 1 degree away from being exact. So we will see more battles between freedom and oppression this month and next.
Mercury is retrograde until Feb 11. Mercury went retrograde in Aquarius on January 21. All of you Aquarians out there have been running back and forth, not knowing what you were doing or where you were going. Aquarians are usually this way anyway, but Mercury is making it worse.
But the good news just in time for Valentines Day is Mars and Venus doing the hoochie coochie early this month in Pisces. Now Pisces is an emotional, sensitive sign that can be a little shy. But with Venus and Mars in their sign, they could pull off the Great Seduction of the 21st Century. Don't put it past them. On the 21st of this month, Mars and Venus continue their tango in Aries. There is no stopping Aries, they don't need Mars or Venus to increase their libido, it is out of control anyway.
Dates to Watch:
Feb 1 – Venus Conjunct Neptune at 6 Pisces. Now I am an equal opportunity astrologer and try to treat all of the planets as equal, but just between the two of us, I really don't like Neptune. He can cause confusion, self-delusion, illusions and all kinds of nasty stuff. On Venus he can be a real problem. You can fall hopelessly in love today with a Pisces, an artist, a dreamer or all three. Wait a few days before flying off to Vegas to get married.
Feb 3 – Full Moon at 14 Leo/Aquarius at 6 PM. This is a Full Moon of opportunity since the Moon trines Uranus. This is great for original creative work.
Feb 6 – Sun Opposite Jupiter at 17 Aquarius/Leo. You may exaggerate today in the stories you tell others. Something that you thought was a bargain may turn out to be a wild extravagance. You may be totally out of control with unrealistic expectations especially if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) or the ascendant at 17 Leo or Aquarius.
Feb 11 – Mercury goes direct at 9:47 AM at 1 degrees of Aquarius. If you have personal planets or the Ascendant at 1 degree of Aquarius, you may be confused today, losing your keeps, locking yourself out of the house and just generally walking around in circles.
Feb 14 – Valentines Day. Put off the romantic dinner until Feb 22.
Feb 18 - New Moon at 6:47 PM at 29 Aquarius. A New Moon is a perfect time to do a ritual and plant the seeds of what you want to bring into your life.
Sun enters Pisces until Mar 20. A time of the year where we want to retreat. We are extra sensitive to other people and to animals. Watch out for being victimized during this sign.
Feb 19 – Mars enters Aries until March 31. Check the house of your birth chart that contains the sign of Aries. During this transit of Mars you will get activated and can accomplish a lot in the are of life that the house rules. Check here for the meaning of the houses.
Feb 20 – Venus enters Aries until March 17. Venus is joining Mars in a seductive dance. Look at your Aries house, this is area of life you will want to beatify and where you may meet the love of your life.
Feb 22 – Venus conjunct Mars at 1 degree of Aries. The goddess of Love and the God of sex are meeting up here. If you have personal planets or the Ascendant at 1 degree of Aries, don't stay home! Go out and circulate.
Feb 23 – Sun Square Saturn at 3 degrees of Pisces/Sagittarius. This is a downer today. Don't take risks You may become disillusioned by someone. But it is a good day to challenge authority but you could lose.
Feb 24 – Venus trine Saturn. You may hear from a friend you haven't seen in quite a long time. A good day for commitment in a relationship.
Feb 25 – Mars trine Saturn. You may tackle an important job today that takes concentration and discipline. You can do it.
Sun conjunct Neptune at 7 Pisces. Neptune rules escape from reality, so if the weather is OK today, take a trip to the beach or a lake. Neptune likes the water.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is in Leo until August 2015. This month Jupiter is retrograde will move from 18 Leo to 14 Leo. Jupiter is about growth and expansion. Look to the house in your natal chart that holds 14 to 18 degrees of Leo. During Jupiter Retrograde we are more interested in inner growth than we are in outward expansion.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2018. (He will move back into Scorpio on June 16, 2015 until Sep 19, 2015.) This month Saturn moves from 3 degrees of Sagittarius to 4 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets 3 to 4 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini in your natal chart, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. While Saturn is in Sagittarius, Saturn is asking about your plans for the future, your religious beliefs and what meaning have you found for your life.
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This month Uranus will move from 13 t0 14 degrees of Aries all month. We all feel a need to rebel; we want more freedom and want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in “cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) is in Pisces until 2026. He will move from 6 to 7 degrees of Pisces this month. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 6 to 7 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights. Watch for some really inspired films to come out during the time Neptune is in Pisces.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto is moving direct and will stay at 14 degrees of Capricorn. Everyone is feeling the urge to purge and to find his or her truth. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 14 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month,
