Sun Signs for February ’18
(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in February and in the new year. The emphasis this month is on the signs Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Sagittarius seeks, Aquarius knows people & ideas, and Pisces bonds . Mars is in Sagittarius all month and describes us as energetic and adventurous. While in Sagittarius, Mars squares Neptune and meets mystery and trines Uranus and brings discovery. Jupiter in Scorpio promotes intense issues like sex and money. (Look at what has happened since Weinstein, Sexual missteps by men are being exposed and judged and this may improve male female relationships in the future after a bit of tension.) Taxes and insurance will get special attention. (The tax bill has passed.) Saturn has left Sagittarius. Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo should feel a weight lift. Saturn has moved into its own sign, Capricorn. It stays through 2020, and becomes very strong. Saturn here is about being practical and realistic. It represents setting and achieving goals and is climbing the mountain. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy.
The Sun and Mercury in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Venus in week 1 are in Aquarius which makes us social and intellectual. Their square with Jupiter shows us taking on too much in social and managerial areas. Let’s take on less. The Sun and Mercury in week 4 and Venus in weeks 2, 3 and 4 are in Pisces. This helps us identify and be one with all.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the morning of the 1st contrasts public versus private power. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius from late morning of the 13th until late on the 15th shows a new start in social and intellectual life. As always under eclipses, let’s be sensible.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Scorpio on the 6th and 7th and in Gemini later on the 22nd, the 23rd, and most of the 24th.
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship.
The Pluto Uranus square is weakening. It makes the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you hear about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas, the floods and fires in Ca. In ’17, and the hurricanes of ’17, this is one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represents among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife.
Saturn left Scorpio quite a while ago, where it showed intense grief. I’m happy that I have read, “Life after Life”, “Evidence for the Afterlife”, “Proof of Heaven”, and “Heaven is for Real”. These books are as close as we can get to evidence for heaven and an afterlife, with the exception of having an NDE. As evidence they are very comforting. Incidentally, “Proof of Heaven” came out while Jupiter was in Gemini. Jupiter is optimism and faith, and ideas and books come under Gemini’s rule. (We had the show, “Proof” on cable a couple of seasons ago.)
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: am 1, 4, 5, 17, 20, 21, 24, & 25. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
