WEEK AHEAD: Feb15 – 22
Things chill out considerably this week, withVenus joining the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius. Themes of group activity, progress and reform for the collective ‘good’ are prevalent, but with the Quarter Moon in Taurus today, we see the struggle between our desire to achieve our goals, hopes, aspirations versus those entrenched old-world ways that keep our lives conservative, predictable and secure. We can’t have both so some compromises are necessary.The Sun moves into Pisces by the end of the week (Friday) and slips us into a state of dissolution out of what our egos seem to cling to most (what are those things for you?), so much begins to disseminate and loosen up in ways which (still), with Scorpio Mars we fight desperately to possess and control.
Culture is the big ticket item at the moment, and the dilemma posed by Jupiter quincunx Vesta/Uranus over its long-term value on our devotion to our individual freedoms turns into a real personal matter when, by the weekend the Sun crosses into the revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square. We expect to see another major energetic download, shifting our consciousness higher into understanding the crippling/liberating forces of the fourth dimensional field. Our ability to stay in the moment, with full awareness, is our only weapon against the tendency to become invaded and controlled by the curses and destructive thoughts of others.
Some work is necessary, it is certainly not the easiest week, but manageable if we keep out forward-thinking caps on and gently focus on releasing ourselves from the clutches of anything that does not make sense to us right now.
Remember, the vast majority of what is happening in the world at this minute hasnothing to do with you… So why are you reacting to it?
Focus on your own piece – see what you can do about the things before you. Ask yourself whether you can change them or perhaps just come to let them go. Time to move forward on this journey, one step at a time, and nicer to do this with those who are going in the same direction, at the same pace as you.

Jupiter (21Vi05′) quincunx Vesta – exact Sun Feb 14, 05:34 pm
Culture is definitely not your friend this week. It becomes starkly obvious that it makes hardly any concessions to what you have learned to believe through your own educational experience. You find that all cultural influences exist purely for the convenience of others, such as the various institutions, churches, corporations, agencies that will garner your precious goodies for some form of tax or another – in truth doing little to support your own deepest spiritual yearnings. You may discover now that your cultural norms and expectations do not seem to fit comfortably within your own, personally designed life-path. Feelings of annoyance, indignation, disempowerment, and deep, underlying sexual repression could be a major phenomenon of this uncomfortable dynamic at this time.
Questions are raised about whether anybody at all is treated kindly by their culture, and as our population expands (and ages) we are increasingly made more aware of how toxic and redundant some of its influences can be. Yet, in order to be productive, we seek to find a workable solution that tries to include both society’s conditioned methods and our most cherished personal beliefs. The bigger question is whether this is really possible any more? Such is the conundrum with this aspect. It might require that some personal sacrifices be made (if possible) if we are to reach any socially philosophical agreement to express or personal creativity. Vesta’s recent conjunction to Uranus makes such agreements highly unlikely now. Observe how your own culture has somewhat left you out of the loop.
First Quarter Moon (26Ta03) – Mon Feb 15, 07:24 am
Here is a basic conflict on this Taurus Moonbetween our desire to achieve our goals, hopes, aspirations and the habit of holding onto those things that bring us security. It’s going to be tough to try to have both without making some concessions. The challenge is going to be how to maintain some dominion over your physical circumstances so they are no longer limiting your future development. Could be tricky. Deep down you might feel it’s risky to take chances with what you have, assuming that the future is gonna take care of itself. The future is NOT going to take care of itself, of course, and things being so, you need to get your ass into some sort of routine or program that allows you to reach your goals and then act with a sense of decisiveness about how to achieve a result.
Look now at all your skills and abilities. How can you best use the resources available to you to get the most out of what you want to do. If you don’t sort this business out, you will find that before long you will have run low or depleted what you need to sustain you.
Venus enters Aquarius – Wed Feb 17, 03:54 am, till Mar 12
Venus semi-square Saturn – Wed Feb 17, 9:22 am
There may be some tough choices to be made regarding the demands of duty, responsibility and achievement versus the desire to enjoy the moment, engage in social interactions and just pure self-indulgences. Most probably there’s going to be some stern words exchanged over how easy or slack someone is taking things, perhaps feeling another to be cold and demanding. While part of you can relate to the importance of indulging in the friends and all the frivolous fun, the other part (that internalisation of the demanding parent) knows that discipline and hard work are necessary to get things done, and permits none of that frivolity. This conflict may create some mid-week tension, but we know it’s coming, and perhaps with a little attention you can learn to balance the two, denying neither completely.
Mercury (4°Aq40′)semi-square Chiron – Wed Feb 17, 12:55 pm
It’s very possible that you might find alternative methods to show you healing or personal care during this time a little challenging. You might not quite understand, or even actively oppose those who attempt to introduce you to these possibilities. This moment poses some difficult choices in terms of healing or coaching options, and as progressive as your mind may be, it still tends to cling to the known and traditional paths here. Regardless of your choices, it is advisable for you to be very ultra-mindful that your fixed adherence to habitual thinking patterns may be the source of an overall negative attitude, which if affected, could adversely affect your health and general well-being.
Mars sextile Node – Thu Feb 18, 2:58 am
Strong desire to form unions and collaborations, particularly with strong intent to settle the score, bring some sort of closure of to events or issues from the past. Look out now for those who may trigger or re-ignite old desires or unfulfilled, unsatisfied urges. Also, this transit indicates a high time of entering into associations with others for a team/co-operative purpose. Since Jupiter has recently spent much time aligned with the NorthNode, a tribal, clan-like movement is very strong now, and this aspect calls that kindred warriors come together to fight.
Sun enters Pisces – Fri Feb 19, 5:11 am (till Sun Mar 20)
The Sun in all his expressive desire now dims his headlight to coast into completion of this year’s Solar journey. Typically he tries to do this in a reserved, receptive manner through the final constellation of Pisces. In mutable/water, the Sun becomes expresses his faculty to absorb – he is patient and calm, and seeks spiritual pleasures and comforts with a tendency for escapism into alternative dimensions.
He dreams that his passage will be smooth and he will arrive in a paradise wonderland. But plans don’t always go according to plan.
As we will see with the Sun’s passage by Neptune, Ceres and Chiron (also in Pisces), there may be extra waves, especially squaring Saturn, opposing Jupiter – we can expect the following month to by a rather emotionally tumultuous time, not withstanding some tension and restrictions, caused mostly through any inner inhibitions coming to light. So, a warning for the next month to stay clear of any negativity which may easily manifest into all kinds of difficulties.
The trick during the next 30 days will be in how to keep a positive attitude. Heightened sensitivity to the abrasive ‘truths’, could become painful to those hanging on to any delusions, forcing many into despair. We must remember to let go of any attachments – all that mental baggage to which our whimsical hearts tend to cling. With Pisces, it’s all about letting go, and this is a real chance to clear the decks, fess up, forgive and forget.
Just in time for the Aries Equinox and the Solar New Year (Mar 20).
Sun on the Uranus/Pluto midpoint(weekend)
Much has been written about this revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square, especially by this author – as many of you who have been following these blogs and social media posts are familiar. The aspect marks the process of overthrowing those deeply entrenched restrictions and limitations from all areas of our lives. In the past 3 years we have experienced dramatic shifts, and even the meekest, most under-trodden of us has given in to their deepest urges to change. This next month sees this aspect at its closest as the two heavyweight outer planets begin to separate after 7 exact squares since 2012, and some intense action builds leading into next week’s Virgo Full Moon (Monday Feb 22) falling near the exact Ur/Pl midpoint.
If we have not realised it yet, then the world is coming to recognise who the rising revolutionaries for the coming age will be. Not just Globally – we can see who is making all the noise there by simply switching on the evening news – but we’re talking locally too. There are revolutionaries everywhere now. There’s one in every lunchbox. Folks like you and me who have strange, highly unique ideals. They know that change and innovation are most important, and stand ready to do whatever hasto be done to to make change happen. In this, we encounter drastic turns of events that deeply affect and potentially change the way we pursue our dreams, and even the dreams themselves begin to take a more multidimensional, more profound vision that includes seeing a complete end to some of the nonsense that we choose upon ourselves when we choose to play along with silly charades.
Shocking realisations all round… but more on that next week…
Have an amazing week.
