Astro Planets for February 2010

Astro Planets for February 2010

There are three major planetary configurations this month and the two major ones hit Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn. Saturn the planet of limitations is in a square at 4 degrees Libra – the peacemaker will have to contend with the capitalist. In other words, there’s a fight brewing at work, in your industry or around the globe that cannot be avoided. Jupiter at 4 degrees Pisces says “take a chill pill” while sextiling (positive) Pluto. Pisces has a habit of doing the washing up everytime a fight come a’knocking on the door, so make sure you stand your ground, lay out your concerns or boundaries and then gracefully step back. No point flogging it to push a point – and Pluto loves to break things down irrevocably, burning bridges and leaving no stone unturned. You don’t need to give into that:

  • February 1 Saturn Square Pluto 4 Libra/Capricorn 21 at 7:26 AM Sydney, Australia time
  • February 7 Jupiter Sextile Pluto 4 Pisces/Capricorn 21 at 3:50 AM Sydney, Australia time
  • February 17  Neptune Conjunct Chiron 26 Aquarius 14 at 3:00 PM Sydney, Australia time

Neptune conjunct Chiron will see the release of a new drug, an operation or “cure” that heals. In your life, it could be a time when you add a group or find friends that support you in a new way. If you know someone young and impressionable they may be attracted to a group that is damaged or involved in drugs (Neptune rules drugs). We choose how we want to use the energies depending on our experience.

June: Full Moon in Cancer

June: Full Moon in Cancer

Sydney at 5:35am on Tuesday June 23rd 2009, the Moon in her own sign, Cancer, meets fiery Sun at 1 deg 30. Exactly 1/2 degree away, in opposition, Pluto lumbers into position in Capricorn to do some real usurping of power.  Somewhere in the Universe, parents are uniting with teachers to oppose bureacrats, staff are staging quiet rebellions against toxic bosses, and you… yes, what will you do? It’s a new start but not a new idea. Something that’s been brewing in your noggin for ages. Time to own it, start it, finish it. And pay the piper. Pluto in Capricorn always pays the Piper, on time, and with a tip.

  • Aries – if you’ve been working hard and ignoring brewing issues at home, just try staying on that path!
  • Taurus – Mars and Venus conjunct in your sign, a new moon in your 3rd house and Pluto in your 9th? Talk it over. And be prepared to dig and dig.
  • Gemini – Balance your needs with those of a loved one please! Pleasure and pain too. What’s that you say? Yes you CAN listen as well as talk!
  • Cancer – it’s all about you, love. And your love. What will you choose? A new comfortable start on your own, or a tall dark stranger who can show you the good life, outside of the kitchen/sofa?
  • Leo – The south node is in direct aspect with the New Moon. Don’t let old habits pull you apart. Particularly dietary ones – you know that when the moon is in Cancer you eat comfort food. (12th house).
  • Virgo – sorry about Saturn upsetting you, particularly as you of all signs like routine and fairness. But the old teacher is trining Mars/Venus conjunct in Taurus, so nice earthy activities will help throw off the recent gloom and depressions.
  • Libra- new start in career will be faced down by skullduggery in or near the home. Now it’s time to shine, you wonder if you should. But if someone is holding you back, look to the children. What sort of role model do you really want to be, for them?
  • Scorpio as you make your mark on the world, relationships are also heating up. Those Scorpios that like to be intense and focussed have a lot to choose from this month!
  • Sag – lookin’ good! Geminis are interested, even the married ones, but try to live up to your own high ideals. Philosophy and morals are no good, if you don’t put them into practice.
  • Capricorn – what happened? Pluto is gradually destroying your old life, that’s what happened. And the new moon with it’s conniptions with the nodes, and then Venus/Mars/Saturn playing on the same day will bring the finality of the changes. Try to view them with relief ok?
  • Aquarius – Jupiter and Neptune are still conjunct at 26 degrees, in your sign. You too face changes, but in spite of being a fixed sign, you are enjoying this growth and new challenges. Wacky meets wackier. Thank you, you make the world an interesting place!
  • Pisces – Uranus is also at 26 degrees, aspecting Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius. You too are exploring the stranger side of life. But it’s harder to flow right now, as you move from one reality to another.

As always, my readings are for Sydney times. If you are in London, that’s about 8:30pm the night before (Monday 22nd).  Please let me know how the weekend, and Mon/Tuesday works out for you – on Twitter or here!

Dec-Jan 2009 Major aspects

Dec-Jan 2009 Major aspects

jupiter-aqWe finish 2008 on a bang!

Monday 22nd December at around 7:30pm, we have Sun conjunct Pluto at zero degrees Capricorn. Pluto in Cap is not going to be very considerate of family issues (opposes Cancer, family). Whatever starts to blow up on Monday night will see you through Christmas and develop slowlyinto something bigger than Ben Hur over the next oh, decade or so. That sounds like fun doesn’t i!

The new year opens with Saturn retrograde. A slow revealing look at poor structures and ill fated decisions. 4am New Years Day is not the time to be driving home drunk. Trust me.

But Jupiters entry in Aquarius in early hours of January 6th 2009 will bring a philosophical acceptance to the changes Pluto is wroughting. Cultivate a distance and openness that Jupiter/Aquarius requires and you won’t get sucked into the deep Pluto/Capricorn moods.

Finally, The eclipse on January 26th, 2008 at 6 degrees Aquarius conjunct Jupiter will open our minds. Is there a situation that you just can’t accept? A new sister in law who is just too strange? A job that doesn’t make sense? The end of January brings an acceptance to situations outside of the social norm. Backtracking during Mercury retrograde is the order of the day anyway. (January 12 at 7 degrees Aquarius until Feb 1st at 21 degrees Capricorn).

In case you haven’t noticed, Pluto starts the story, with Saturn. But Aquarian Jupiter brings relief or at least an acceptance of non-conformist solutions.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from Sydney Australia.

EDIT: Elsa Elsa has a great post on Jupiter in Aquarius.

Sun Square Pluto tonight

Sun Square Pluto tonight

galactic-centerI don’t know about you, but the last few days have been all over the place – Mercury sextile Venus, Sun square Mars, Mercury trine Neptune.

But tonight’s Sun(Virgo) Sq Pluto (Sag) (1:59am sydney time) is going to be the icing on the cake but a helluva lot less sweet. Powerful spot (around 26 degrees – Virgo/Sag) that has been hit by eclipses. Things that have been stewing for a long, long time are demanding attention. It’s a final countdown of Pluto stomping all over the Galactic Center – by the time Jupiter also hits that spot in 8-10 weeks time, it’s going to be ‘all over red rover’, one way or another.
