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 still on the signs Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Aries. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Capricorn sets goals, Aquarius knows, Pisces believes, Gemini perceives, and Aries acts. Mercury through the 10th is in Capricorn. We are still thinking about goals and public life. While in Capricorn Mercury is near Pluto and focuses our thoughts on forces. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3; and Mercury from the 11th, are in Aquarius. Our thoughts and power are with knowing things and people. These bodies in Aquarius meet Saturn and focus us on responsibilities and work. The Sun in week 4 and Venus in weeks 1, 2, & 3 in Pisces, , turn our minds to connections with subtle things. These bodies meet Neptune, already in Pisces, and move us toward fantasy. Pleasant Venus in week 4 is in Aries and meets good Jupiter. This promotes optimism, luck, and energy in us. After mid-May Jupiter will go into Taurus and brings those natives good things. Mars is in Gemini from week 4 of August until the 4th week of March. This is huge and affects anyone with something important in Gemini, for example, the U.S., Trump, Kamala, and Biden. We all should harmonize our thoughts and speech to counter the tendency for these areas to be tense. Gemini also rules paperwork. Can you think of any people recently and currently having trouble with papers? Saturn, is still in Aquarius until March of ’23. It can bring difficulty to Aquarian things like: humanity, knowledge, friends, hope, and the future. It is important that we think, act, and behave in positive ways to counter this. This affects the world and us personally. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to go, through positive qualities like planning, work, & learning from setbacks. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. The square of Uranus and Saturn has become weak. There should be less unexpected trouble, and less trouble with technical things. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways.
Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
THE BIG STORY in ’23 is that Pluto, Saturn and Mars will change sign in March. Saturn goes from Aquarius to Pisces. Difficulties are less intellectual and more emotional. Pluto goes from Capricorn to Aquarius. Transformation moves from our public lives to our social lives. Mars will resume regular motion through the signs after leaving Gemini. So trouble still happens but becomes more tempoary. The shift of sign of a planet shows a shift of circudmstances and events. So the bottom line is change. Our concerrns and events will be different in ’23 after March.
A Full Moon in Leo on the 4th 5th, and much of the 6th focuses us on power but also on love.
A New Moon in Pisces on the 20th and 21st is a new start in our inner lives.
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 afternoon of the 11th, the 12th, and most of the 13th and in Gemini on the 26th, 27th, and most of the 28th..
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 2, 8, 9, 10, 14, 17, 22, 23, 27, & 28. 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.
