February is a short month, but one that has some very good things happening. Love is the key word for Valentine’s Day, but really, the entire month is about love. This week welcome a unique planetary meeting of Venus and Chiron.
Chiron is known as the wounded healer of astrology, and when he joins Venus, it’s a special time for healing of your heart. Whether you’re single or not, Chiron and Venus now conspire to help you fall in love with the Universe. (more about Chiron HERE)
Mercury stirs once again on Wednesday, the 11th, and you’ll find that day to day events now move ahead with a more predictable tone.
Mercury, now in Aquarius until March 12th is known for inventiveness, so put on your thinking hat and get going on your dream.
Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs, two of the most innovative and stubborn minds of the 20th century were both born with Mercury in Aquarius. Also, Oprah Winfrey and Paris Hilton have this brilliant placement.
What this means for you is that Universal energies are more present to help unlock your own wild and creative genius. Focus, and access the impersonal but brilliant quality of Uranus combined with the discipline of Saturn, the co-rulers of Aquarius, to connect with your vision.
Although Mercury stations direct on Wednesday, we’re still in a quiet until the New moon of February 18th. Until then the moon is decreasing which signals a time for inner work; healing your thoughts and emotions, as well as getting poisons out of your body.
Make it a Month of LOVE
Valentine’s Day is February, 14th, but this whole month is about love. And, here’s my bonus Astro*Secret tip for February.
Valentine’s Day is not the most romantic day of the month! On Saturday the 14th, the Moon squares (challenging) both Venus and Mars in the early AM, and then enters Capricorn for the evening.
The moon is in her detriment, or exile, in Capricorn –not her happy place.
The planetary combination makes for a more serious tone on the 14th. Of course, I’m not saying to dish your Valentine’s date, but, plan on an extended tour de force.
The solution is simple – extend your celebration of love and romance into the next week because Saturday the 21st is a rock star day for LOVE!!!
On the 21st, Venus and Mars, the quintessential lovers, join forces by conjunction in ardent Aries. The Moon is also in fiery Aries, lending an emotional urge to take action, and the Sun is in dreamy, romantic Pisces.
So much fun in one short month of February.
Take a deep breath, and embrace the planetary energies that are stepping up now to facilitate healing on all levels.
