(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. The emphasis this month is on the signs Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and Taurus. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Capricorn plans, Aquarius knows, Pisces believes, Aries acts, and Taurus possesses. Venus in Capricorn shows us combining ambition and socializing. Venus joins Saturn and Pluto and requires that we take care with love. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3 and Mercury in week 1 in Aquarius make us smarter and more social. The Sun in week 4 and Mercury in weeks 2, 3, and 4 in Pisces turn our attentions to subtle things. While in Pisces , these bodies join Neptune and increase imagination. Mars in Aries in weeks 1 and 2 gives us energy; it joins Uranus and brings surprises. Mars in Taurus in weeks 3 and 4, shows us acting on practical matters. Jupiter is in Sagittarius and will stay until Dec. of 2019. In attitude and philosophy, we leave the intensity of Scorpio and soak up the optimism and faith of Jupiter and Sagittarius. Due to a square of Jupiter and Neptune, we should avoid extremes and exaggeration. Uranus is back in fire sign, Aries until March of ’19 when it goes back into earth sign, Taurus. When it went form Aries to Taurus in May, we had Kiluea. Let’s see if anything happens as Uranus changes sign again. While it is in Aries, those with late placements in Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, should expect the unexpected, the opening of new vistas, and the need to seek the reliable in all things. Saturn is in 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 of accomplishment. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy. Saturn is approaching Pluto. Oy Vey! We should be a bit cautious to avoid loss because this is rather extreme. There will be realilty checks.
A New Moon in Aquarius on the 3rd, 4th, and most of the 5th is a new start in our social and intellectual lives. A Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th and 20th contrasts vision and mission.
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 Taurus on the 11th and 12th and in Sagittarius later on the 25th, the 26th and 27th.
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 U.S. Embassy moved to Jerusalem under a Taurus new moon, a new start. Uranus in Taurus for 7 years starting in March, will bring unusual events to Israel.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. It made the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you heard 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 was one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represented 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. This long term square ended at mid-May. P.S. The square may still have some punch since Uranus is back in Aries from Nov. until March. I say this because of the ongoing turmoil. Or was the recent Uranus/Mars square the culprit?
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 14, 18, 23, 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.
