This, the shortest month can be an interesting one because two thirds of it is powered by Uranus, planet of sudden and usually unexpected happenings. One unusual aspect of this particularly February is that is has no Full Moon. There is one on the last day of January and another on March 1. However, there is a powerful New Moon Eclipse in the middle of the month on the 15th. There are no retrograde planets at this time. This indicates that during this time period efforts and events may well go forward without any hindrance.

The signs these so-called personal planets are in cue us into the energy at work in our world. The Sun in original Aquarius changes to gentle Pisces on the 19th. Mercury (thoughts and communications) in unique Aquarius moves into colorful Pisces on the 18th. Venus (Choices and decisions) in willful Aquarius changes to inclusive Pisces on the 11th. Mars (physical push) is in energetic Sagittarius all month; you can take advantage of this energy to learn, grow and expand. These are the personal planets, representing daily activities and efforts. Going with the energy of the time—whether forceful or relaxed, you can accomplish more.

These so-called outer planets represent trends and larger currents of energy. Jupiter is in Scorpio all month, prompting blessings for those who dig out the truth and solve mysteries. Saturn is in Capricorn all month putting pressure on business and politics to be authentic, grounded and structured. Uranus is in Aries all month helping promote inventions and innovations. Neptune is in Pisces, helping boost spirituality or possibly bringing deception to those who are not mindful. Pluto is in Capricorn also, digging up deliberately hidden trickery to bring it to light.

The New Moon in Aquarius on the 15th suggests we focus on helping people altruistically through organizations, or group efforts. We can also look to find unique or unusual solutions to dilemmas as well as resolve issues in ways we hadn’t thought to or considered. The eclipse adds an element of change to this time. Because it is Aquarian in nature, it may also represent events that are more than usually unplanned or unexpected. The two weeks preceding it are under the influence of the eclipse at the end of January, therefore this time may be unusually turbulent with unexpected changes or developments.

There is an interesting overall emphasis this month on the potential for illusion, delusion, and deception—self or otherwise. For your planning purposes a few dates may be helpful: 2/3-4 be mindful of excess and push your luck; 2/10 exaggeration and excess may be evident; 2/13 watch out for cheaters or tall tales; Eclipse/New Moon energy heralds change; 2/16-17 More potential for lies and/or deception; 1/21 spiritual vibrations encourage meditation; 2/24-25 postpone choices, seek guidance; 2/28 avoid controversy, seek truth.
