As predicted on our Calendar, the flow was slow and sluggish a lot of January. Jupiter in Aries gave us BIG ideas about all we wanted to do, but Mercury and Mars left us high and dry in terms of an ability to feel or recognize progress. Now, day by day, we’re gaining momentum for getting things finished. In February we more easily find our sense of accomplishment again.
The nature of last month led me to an interesting reflection on astrology. I got plenty done in January! But the feeling of tiredness combined with ambitious thinking still added up to a point of view that I wasn’t getting anywhere. That simply wasn’t true. It reminds me of something Mom says: feelings aren’t facts. She’s right. The astrology isn’t always reflecting facts, but the tendencies of our feelings and awareness.
Now let’s talk about where the flow takes us in February.
As February begins, Saturn has 5 weeks left in Aquarius. Saturn’s time there started March 2020. Since then, you’ve been dealing with challenges, pressure, and increased responsibility in some area of life. The “COVID years” coincided with some particular set of life challenges for each of us. Though the tides change soon, Saturn’s likely to up the ante – or throw you a few final curve balls – this month before it exits Aquarius. It asks for PROOF you’ve completed the personal development assignment given these last few years.
So be ready to address any lingering problems you’ve overlooked. Face the decisions and changes you’ve put off. Relief is around the corner. There’s just some final housekeeping to do before it arrives. Understand this is the last “clean up” opportunity you’ll have before moving to the next phase of your story.
Venus in Pisces offers you a chance to tap into the following qualities the next few weeks: compassion, grace, sensitivity, vulnerability, devotion, romanticism and idealism. How can these concepts be useful to you right now?
Venus in Pisces also helps us conjure a vision, dream, or ideal outcome that will be useful for the New Moon February 20th. Do some vision work, fantasizing and daydreaming these next few weeks. Romanticize your life as if it were a movie, and write down the main components of what YOUR happy ending looks like throughout the month. Keep those notes handy for the 20th (discussed below).
This month’s Full Moon is a provocative one. On the 4th and 5th, you may notice significant feelings or events cropping up. Watch for metaphorical exclamation marks to whatever’s built up these last 3 years. You may be pushed to make change quickly or feel tempted to take drastic action in hope of long-needed relief. Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are at odds over whether the right approach is smoothing things over or going to battle.
You may think you need an immediate solution at this time, but what you really need is a release of the tension. Plan some challenging physical or creative activities for the weekend and work through the energy using your body. Have a dance party in your living room on Saturday the 4th. Paint a bedroom. Re-arrange the furniture. Do some Zumba or kickboxing. Hike or run at the park. Whatever you do – GET THE TENSION OUT!
Trust the solutions you need are being aligned at this time, even if an answer isn’t visible yet. Keep your focus on momentary stress relief while emotions peak and pass.
The answers and solutions you wanted around the Full Moon may better come into focus now. Whatever the case may be, it’s time for action. And lots of it! The 13th in particular brings hourly changes in mood, task, and attention.
Mid-week (around Valentine’s Day), the planets signal moments of peacefulness, harmony, and ease. But immediately after, a serious, dutiful, “get to work” vibe arises. It may be that relief comes in one area of life, while new responsibility comes in another. It all evens out eventually. Just know that lots of shifts and adjustments will be made this week. The pieces of the puzzle are falling together. You’re being set up for your best possible way forward!!!
The Pisces New Moon falls on the 19th or 20th depending on your location. (Find your local time here.) I don’t always emphasize lunar events in my messages. But this month’s and next month’s new moons are EXTREMELY POWERFUL. Take notice and plan accordingly!
On the Pisces New Moon this month, the magic of life becomes more palpable. It’s prime time to access the magic of life and direct it to help you.
This is where the notes you’ve been taking come in handy. I highly recommend creating a ritual for yourself to do on this New Moon. Set up a special space and time to read and re-write descriptions of your happy ending. Mentally, you must set aside the practical steps or obstacles you’ll face getting there. Skip straight ahead to the feeling, the fantasy. Align with that. Tune into the feeling of your happy outcome as if it were a radio station. In doing so, you summon the magic of life and show it where to carry you next.
Planets moving through Aries are highly significant the first 5 months of 2023. Why? Because Jupiter is there aiming to support you, helping you grow, set new goals, find more meaning, purpose and opportunity. The areas of life Jupiter will help you expand this year (based on your Zodiac sign) is explained at length in our Calendar. The Calendar shows where the planets are ready and waiting to cheer you on, doubling the power of your efforts.
That potential is further enhanced from February 20th – March 16th, when Venus joins Jupiter in Aries. Your ability to begin building a new foundation for life – a life you will love, enjoy, and which uses your unique talents to their highest potential – is peaking. The door is wide open, guys! Be on the lookout for new alliances with people who want to help you. Watch for opportunities that align with your special skill set. Listen to the inner voice that’s growing more certain of what it wants and take leaps of faith in that direction. 🙂
