Astrocast - Brief for February 2012
by Gwynne Mayer
How are the solar storms affecting you?
An in depth Astrocast was put out for January, February and March earlier, so for the months of February and March, we will keep note of the major occurrences that will affect all of us in a brief Astrocast. Find the full Astrocast for the quarter here.
The month of February we have some situations in the stars that might affect your planning for the month. Jupiter in Taurus is conjunct the moon ending January in a good space to help us make more money and honoring our possessions in an ethical and expansive manner. Neptune's long awaited exit from Aquarius moving into Pisces will be a major shift for a permanent, fourteen year visit in the sign of Pisces, land of dreams, visions and creative accomplishments. Early Virgo's and Pisces will feel the shift more than others, while early Sagittarians and Gemini's will have a bit of angst with this movement. More meditation time needed for sure. On a universal and political level, we might see some major legislation and research done in the area of drugs and integrative medicine.
On February 7th we will be seeing the Full Moon in Leo which will give the fire signs a chance to culminate ideas that were started at the New Moon the last full week of January, the 23rd. That definitely helped early degrees of Aquarius process what they need to have their lives go forward. The New Moon in Pisces will help jump start all of those creative projects that have been mulling around in your head and give some dreams a chance to be lived. Remember that all signs are affected to some degree on New Moons and Full Moons, giving rise to beginnings and endings. The real estate market and weather definitely react to these connections, with a myriad of other situations associated with the Moon's cycles.
February 7th Saturn turns Rx in Libra, allowing all the Librans to finish up the two plus year's experience of resolving personal and professional issues that have been tested for the last two years. It will stay in the sign of Libra before moving into Scorpio and helping that sign out, the beginning of October. Librans and Aries, because of the opposition, have learned to deal with health issues, authority problems and relationship commitments in a big way during the last two and a half years.
Mars is still retrograde in Virgo and will remain so until the middle of April so, needless to say, Virgos are learning to 'reflect' and do their 'inner spiritual work' in a big way. This gives the Virgo a chance to clean up any past issues that hang in their closets and forces them to tell the truth to 'self' if no one else. Uranus is causing so many changes in early degree Aries; every day they wake up with a new awareness. This can also affect the opposite sign of early Libra.
Overall we are going through mighty changes as we globally begin to fit into the Whole and think as One rather individuals. How do we affect the changes going on personally and how do our changes affect our planet?
