February 2024 Forecast


Aquarius and planets (1)This month promises to be an intense Aquarian month with six planets in Aquarius, the ruler of Aquarius turning direct, and a New Moon in Aquarius.   Let’s break it down.

Jan 20 - Sun entered Aquarius

Jan 20 - Pluto entered Aquarius

Jan 27 - Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, turned direct

Feb 5 - Mercury enters Aquarius

Feb 9 - New Moon is in Aquarius

Feb 13 - Mars enters Aquarius

Feb 16 - Venus enters Aquarius 

You may want to look at the house in your birth chart that contains Aquarius.  Change, rebellion, brilliance, original ideas, and crankiness will happen in that area of your life.  See the Meaning of the houses here.

The planets will start bunching up in Pisces toward the end of this month and that will make March an intense Pisces month.

                                      ++++++++++

All the planets are moving direct this month.  So it’s a time of developing new interests and moving ahead. It is not a time for reflection.  

A critical period is Feb 12, 13, and 14 when Mars conjuncts Pluto at 0 degrees of Aquarius. This is a massive trigger point for the world. It could be sudden, sharp, and ruthless.  Because it is happening at the beginning of Aquarius, It could reveal some events that will dominate the Aquarian period we are entering.  

 

Dates to Watch

Note to my Astrology Clients. Use your Planetary Placement and Ascendant sheet to find if you have a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) or the ascendant within 2 degrees of the degree of the transits listed below.  If so, the transit will have a major impact on you.

Feb 2 – Groundhog Day. If the groundhog sees his shadow when he wakes up, we will have six more weeks of winter. I’ll be watching out for this because I believe not only in the gods of ancient Greece but also in Punxsutawney Phil.

Feb 5 – Mercury enters Aquarius until Feb 23.  Mercury in Aquarius fosters innovative, unconventional thinking and communication. It's a time for progressive ideas and networking with groups.

Feb 7 – Venus Trine Uranus at 18 degrees of Capricorn/Taurus.  This aspect suggests unexpected but pleasant changes in relationships or finances. It's a good time for socializing and enjoying new experiences.

Feb 8 – Sun Square Uranus at 19 Aquarius/Taurus. This aspect can bring tension, as the desire for personal freedom (Sun in Aquarius) clashes with sudden changes or stubbornness (Uranus in Taurus). Expect the unexpected.

Feb 9 – New Moon at 20 Aquarius square Uranus. New Moons are about new beginnings; in Aquarius, it's about new ideas or social causes. The square to Uranus indicates potential disruptions or surprises.

Feb 10 – Chinese Year of the Dragon.  The Dragon Year should bring power, nobility, honor, luck, and success unless you were born as an Ox, Horse, Goat, Dog, or Pig. I was born under the sign of the dragon and have not met with honor, luck, or success. I think  I’m losing faith in the Chinese.

          Mercury squares Jupiter at 8 degrees of Aquarius/Taurus. This aspect can lead to big ideas and overestimation or lack of detail. Be wary of overpromising.

Feb 13 – Mars enters Aquarius until March 22. Mars in Aquarius drives action toward social causes, innovation, and sometimes rebellion. It's a time for collective action and fighting for beliefs.

Feb 14 – Valentine’s Day – Don’t celebrate with your sweetie today because of the Mars Conjunct Pluto. You may butt heads. Wait until Saturday. Or better yet, Thursday the 22nd.

Mars Conjunct Pluto at 0 Aquarius: This intense aspect can bring power struggles or deep transformations, especially related to collective actions or societal structures.  

Feb 16 - Venus enters Aquarius until March 11. Venus in Aquarius values freedom in relationships and enjoys unconventional or intellectual connections.

          Mercury Square Uranus at 19 Aquarius/Taurus.  This aspect can bring excitement and changes to your daily routine and interactions, which can cause upsets and nervous tension. You may receive upsetting news or experience something unexpected that forces you to change plans.

Feb 17 – Venus conjuncts Pluto at 0 Degrees of Aquarius. This aspect can intensify relationships, bringing deep emotional experiences and possibly power dynamics.

Feb 18 – Sun in Pisces. The Sun's move into Pisces focuses on empathy, intuition, and spirituality. It's a time for compassion and artistic pursuits.

Feb 22 – Venus Conjunct Mars at 6 degrees of Aquarius.  Aquarius isn’t a very lovey/dovey sign, but try it today. This conjunction can spark new relationships or bring energy to existing ones, though in Aquarius, the focus might be more on intellectual compatibility than romance.

Feb 23 – Mercury enters Pisces until March 9. Communication becomes more intuitive and less logical. It's a good time for creative thinking and empathetic conversations.

Feb 24 – Full Moon at 5 Virgo opposite Saturn. Full Moons bring culmination or closure. In Virgo, this might relate to health, work, or practical matters.  With Saturn, it’s a time to streamline, prune, and organize.

          Venus Square Jupiter at 10 degrees of Aquarius/Taurus.  This will have an instant impact on your ability to connect with others.  You will feel very generous, but exercising some moderation is important to avoid going overboard with spending. 

Feb 27 – Mars Square Jupiter at 10 degrees of Aquarius/Taurus. This aspect can lead to overconfidence or conflicts due to differing beliefs or principles.

Feb 28 – Sun Conjunct Mercury at 8 Pisces and conjunct Saturn.   It's time to confront any limitations or conflicts hindering your growth and reassess your goals, values, and sense of self. It calls for a disciplined approach and a willingness to face reality.

          Mercury conjunct Saturn at 9 Pisces.  This transit can cause confusion, negative thinking, and communication problems. Your mind is slower than usual, so you may forget things or make mistakes when writing. This is not a good time for research and studies or for making important decisions.

          Sun conjunct Saturn at 9 Pisces signifies a significant period of personal growth, challenges, and increased responsibility.  Don’t you hate the word responsibility?

Sun/Mercury/Saturn-.  The above conjunctions in Pisces can bring serious, reflective thinking, focusing on responsibilities, limitations, or more profound spiritual or emotional insights.

Feb 29 – Leap day, don’t forget to leap.

 

OUTER PLANET TRANSITS FOR THIS MONTH:

JUPITER will move from 7 to 11 degrees of Taurus.  He will stay in Taurus until May 26, 2024.  Jupiter is the big, fat, happy guy who is expansive in everything. In Taurus, he wants to buy property, build up his bank account, and invest in growth stocks. Look to the house in your birth chart that contains Taurus. This coming year can bring good luck and opportunities in the areas ruled by your natal Taurus house.

SATURN is in Pisces until May 26, 2025. This month, Saturn moves from 6 to 9 degrees of Pisces.  Saturn rules your material world and especially your career.  If you have the ascendant or any personal planets anywhere from 6 to 9 degrees of Pisces or Virgo,  you may be in store for some hard lessons about the issues in the house containing Pisces and or Virgo.  Pisces is a creative dreamer. While in Pisces, Saturn, he will try solidifying your dreams and fantasies.

URANUS is in Taurus until April 2026.  Uranus just turned direct on January 27 so he is moving slowly this month and is staying at 19 degrees of Taurus.  This is the time to break loose and radically change your life. I believe in ‘cooperating with the inevitable.’  If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets (17 to 21 degrees of Taurus or Scorpio), go on a long vacation, preferably somewhere you have never been. Or make some major changes in your life. Taurus represents the earth. Expect news about farming, food, earthquakes, volcanos, tornadoes, or other major weather changes while Uranus is in Taurus. 

NEPTUNE is in Pisces until 2026.  Neptune will move from 25 to 26 degrees of Pisces this month.   If you have the ascendant or personal planets anywhere from 23 to 28 degrees of Pisces or Virgo, you may lack focus during this time and want to daydream. Beware of a betrayal, a disappointment, and a sense of drifting. Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, and creative expression, increased dreams, and spiritual insights. Watch for inspired films to come out when Neptune is in Pisces.

PLUTO is in Capricorn until Nov 2024.  This month, Pluto will move from 0 to 1 degree of Aquarius.  Pluto grinds away at our psyche, bringing up all sorts of difficult psychological issues. You should run to your nearest therapist, especially if you have the ascendant or personal planets anywhere from 28 degrees of  Capricorn to 3 degrees of Aquarius.  Pluto asks what needs to die to be reborn.

Enjoy this month.
