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.

Thank the stars this full moon (see June 2009 Stars)  at 17 degrees Gemini/Sag

 squares off Saturn at 17 Virgo. For the first time since Saturn went back direct in mid-May (it had been retrograde since late December) I have felt Saturn’s discipline, structure and (in Virgo) need for routine kicking in. 

 

This week has been more focussed on health (Virgo rules 6th house of health and routine), going to the gym, eating my veggies and generally paying the piper for 5-6 months of general sloth. And it feels good. There is something about Saturn that makes feel happy that we have boundaries. 

I just hope it lasts. Luckily the 17th degree triggers off some gem/sag points for me, so I think it will. 

How about you? Has Saturn kicked in, started you lusting for broccoli, and gym classes? Have stalled activities, meant to bring some structure and routine to your life, started up again?

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.

23:48pm (1:48pm GMT)Saturn leaves Leo and enters Virgo 0deg I’ve had the feeling the last few days that Saturn has been cataloging and filing in preparation for his entry into Virgo. He is collecting data on what certain individuals need to put in place with regards to eating good nutrition, exercising properly and putting structure and routine into place. Sort of Santa, making a list and checking it twice – who’s been naughty and who’s sorted out their daily routines. I suspect I am on Saturn’s hit list. And when Saturn prepares, all the Sun Signs had better make a list too!

As I start this blog, right as Saturn is moving, I feel as though it’s an opportunity to collect and manage my thoughts on paper. Well, sort of paper. Let’s see how it works out.
