Our year started so slow that I know you’re feeling and enjoying the stride we’ve hit. All planets are directnow until April 29th. You’re empowered with energy supportive of progress for multiple months, and I’ll be here twice a month keeping you in tune with important dates to take advantage of.
Let’s look at the astrology calendar for the second half of February. See image below.
NOW through March
Venus and Mars are conjoined and the two planets will travel through the sky together well into March. This is a seriously powerful time for relationships and creative projects. Venus and Mars conjoin approximately every 2.5 years. Thus, as they meet in the sky right now, they END an old cycle that began August 2019. They also BEGIN a new cycle for you in your life journey.
Venus represents something internal to each of us – our values, what we want, like and desire. Mars represents how we express that externally – how we go out into the world and fulfill those values and desires. If you think about it, the Venus-Mars cycle relates to the most fundamental task of our whole life’s purpose. We are each born a totally unique being who sets out to share / integrate our value, our specialness with the world. RIGHT?!?!
The Venus-Mars cycle couldn’t be more importantto each of us in our quest for fulfillment. It’s time to pay attention to what’s showing up in your life as key indicators of what you’re doing well and what needs work.
I could talk a long time about Venus and Mars here, but I just offered a free seminar on this so I encourage you to watch if you haven’t. (Click here) The primary ways we see Venus and Mars trying to co-operate is in our work and in our relationships. While our goal – to go out in the world, be ourselves and get what we want – is entirely self-oriented, personal success requires we learn how to be authentic in a way that serves something beyond self. We can neither be overly indulgent nor sacrificial of self.
TRUTH: Midpoint on the spectrum from narcissistic asshole to friendly doormat stands the graceful warrior.
Over the coming weeks, I challenge you to see how you’ve become more like the graceful warrior since August 2019. We’re closing the Venus-Mars cycle, so CELEBRATE YOURSELF for all you’ve learned. How are you asserting yourself in relationships in more healthy ways? How are you tapping into your talents to serve your clients or your team better? You may also see new ways to improve, and that’s normal. It gives you something to work on over the next cycle!
BUT, the length of time Venus and Mars spend together this time around isn’t normal – it’s spectacular. It’s passionate, fiery, inspired, and creative. I can’t oversell the potential of this period on your personal growth and happiness. So I want to link you with two free resources I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend listening to this week.
The first is a 20-minute video with my very favorite relationship expert, Esther Perel called “How to Find the Perfect Relationship.” You’ll not only be glad you listened to it, you’ll listen again. The second video is a bit longer but very important for us Venus-oriented individuals, who struggle to stand up for ourselves from time to time. This is Dr. Wayne Dyer on “Pulling Your Own Strings.” I love how he exposes the subtle ways we get manipulated and gives actual suggestions on how to change your response in real life situations. I’ll await your thank you notes for these gems. Hehe ;P
The Full Moon in Leo opposing the Sun in Aquarius highlights the themes I’ve discussed above. Where the Leo says “I’m special”, the Aquarius answers “So am I and so is He, that means none of us are.” The way to unravel the paradox is to look at how our individuality intersects with the collective. How do we take our ideas, skills, and perspective and serve our community or humanity as a whole? We are all special, because we all have a role to play. How we play our own role best and empower others do the same is a strong theme this Full Moon.
Jupiter sextiles Uranus. It’s a good day for anything inventive. Do your brainstorming around this time, and think about any areas in which you’re interested in pursuing some growth or expansion. Are you looking to expand your home, family, client base, time for self-care, or _______ ? The days surrounding February 17th support sudden ideas, exciting feelings, and dramatic breakthroughs in how you can make this happen.
As Venus and Mars continue their journey together, they enter a sextile with Neptune at the same time. If you didn’t get time with your Valentine February 14th, do it on these dates instead. Neptune is very romantic but also imaginative. Though Venus + Mars means this whole time is good for creativity, these days are extra powerful.
On the 24th, Mercury squares Uranus. With Mercury in hard aspect to Uranus we can feel a bit “wired up” and hasty. If you’re bestowed with grand ideas around this time (as I hope you are), write them down and marinate on them a few more days. Give them some time to flesh out instead of speaking or acting on impulse.
That’s all for now. So in late February you should say YES to –
Make the most of these next few weeks!
