February 2021

February opens with the Sun in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus. This brings up battles between factions. Being a victim is not a healthy line of defense so man up and have the facts straight. For some, a fight can end up with an intense make up. Slow down and avoid accidents.
Saturn Square Uranus
Saturn, now in Aquarius, is square Uranus in Taurus. We began to feel this event December 9 and will be compelled by this energy until March of next year. This is probably the most important transit of 2021 because it set the stage for our actions this year.

Remember that Saturn is the structures that are in place both physically here on earth and within ourselves. That includes governments, banking, corporations, and even bridges. Personally, it is our relationship to other people and to ourselves. Saturn is resistant to making changes. The old way is just fine,” so says Saturn, even if the old way is destroying our environment and our very nature.

Uranus demands freedom and genius within ourselves and within the world we see around us. Uranus seeks change and freedom.

We now have a battle between innovation and liberation through the rest of this year. The changes that take place will be slow to evolve, but they will take place. Some of the structures such as corporations will have to adapt to the changing needs of the public. Many of us are already moving away from the sellers that that do not support us as human beings. We will see changes in the environment and and the growing movement of sustainability. Are you planting your garden yet?

Many of us will turn away from the need for constant growth and turn to the need for liberation within ourselves. As we address the heartaches and thoughts that no longer serve us, we will become more aware of our spiritual selves. As we make those steps one by one, our outer lives begin to look different.

Movements that work to change the way we live will continue while movements to keep the old ways will also work to hang onto the way we were. Borders are changing and the old guard and establishments are soon to be in our rearview mirrors, step by step.

This year is a great
one to look within to discover who we truly are, and as we do that, we will help our fellow humans to advance in consciousness. This will not happen overnight, and there will be struggles, but change we must.
This aspect is exact on February 17, June 14, and December 24. In between those times the Moon, the Sun and the others planets will form angles to Saturn and Uranus augmenting both the resistance and the advancement of change. Change does not come without a price
, so be prepared to let go of what you no longer need, including insatiable consumerism.
Venus crosses Saturn and squares Uranus February 6.
Responsibility is a big issue at this time. Some of us feel weighed down by what we have to do in order to achieve the freedom we see waiting for us. We will see the battle between the innovators and the status quo. This will occur just before the impeachment trial in the United States, signaling a battle between powerful groups.
More About Venus

Just before Venus rolls over the Saturn/Uranus square, the planet moves into Aquarius February 1 and then moves into Pisces February 25. This is a great transit, as it augments social activities and connections with people that are out of the norm. This is especially nice for Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius. Reach out to others and connect during this time. This could be a signal that we will have more freedom and that Covid-19 is losing its grip on us.
Venus is square Mars February 19. The Sun was square Mars February 1. Those who love to hate are sure to be causing problems and we will see it in our lives and headlines. On a positive note, recognize that these polarities are an illusion and enjoy the potential for fun and frivolity and lust on this day. Those are way better illusions to experience.
Once Venus moves into Pisces February 25
, our compassion for others soars. This can be a very healing time. Many of us will want a rescue pet. Some of us will want to rescue a two-legged pet.
Mercury

Remember that Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius until February 20. This can take us back to the drawing board wherein we must change plans previously initiated.
The Sun and Mercury cross in Aquarius February 7. Look out Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo. Mercury is going to play tricks on you
, so pay attention to the fine details like that weird email you received from a special services Marine in Afghanistan. It’s a scam.
Venus and Mercury link up February 12 just after Venus crossed Jupiter February 11. Mercury crosses Jupiter February 14. At the same time
, Mars is sextile Neptune on the 13th. February 11 to 14 is a time of doing too much in the name of a cause. News and communication can be positive, at least on the surface. Do not overdo it during this time. Since Mercury is retrograde, we will pay for our current and past excesses, not to mention all the possible misunderstandings. Should be an interesting week, not to mention, the new Moon occurs during this time. Avoid excess behavior and do not believe adjectives in place of facts.
Mars in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn February 24. This is a powerful aspect that allows us the ability to succeed. Power plays can work
, especially for Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. At the same time, the Sun is sextile Uranus, exact on February 25. This can bring productive change within the current status quo. One step forward, hooray.
The Moon

The new Moon occurs February 11 at 1:07 pm in Aquarius at 23 degrees. This event is heavy on the Aquarius energy because not only are the Sun and Moon in Aquarius
, but so are Mercury, Venus conjunct Jupiter, and Saturn. This new Moon seems to be a new beginning for humanity.
Innovation and freedom are full speed ahead as we strive to reopen the world economy. It is time to think out of the box. Dissect situations and your toys to see how both can be made to work better.
The new Moon is also the Chinese New Year and this year is the
year of the ox. The ox is harnessed with a yoke and pulls heavy loads. We can expect this to be a year of hard work as we emerge from our inner and outer restrictions. This is especially true for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. The power is there, use it wisely.
The full Moon occurs February 27 in Virgo at eight degrees at 2:17 am CST. This full Moon asks us to balance our daily tasks and routines with our spiritual needs. Consider how well you are living at this full Moon. Assess your habits. Are you still doing the same crazy behaviors expecting different results? Since this full Moon is influenced by the Saturn/Uranus square, we will be called upon to deal with our inner tensions. No matter what happens in the course of the month and years ahead, through thick and thin, innovation and acceptance of our differences will take place. It is written in the stars.
