Theme: The clash of the Titans and transforming society
There is much energy for deep structural change right now especially with Pluto and Saturn in the 10th house. But it’s not change without pain as the forces of human self-interest battle the natural human wish to create a better world. With the energy of collective action (Aquarius) moving into the sign of spiritual action (Pisces) there is a real sense of combining the inner with the outer. As the saying goes, ‘As above, so below’. Depending on your sign you will experience it in different areas of your life.
Aries: There is much going on with the community you inhabit and how you engage with - and your spiritual interior this month. Pay attention to your dreams and see if some analysis throws light on the workings of your unconsciousness. The only form of constraint we ultimately face is our minds capacity to deal with outer constraints. It’s a good time to document all processes to ensure the best outcome for your career at this time.
Taurus: You are a restructured idealist! Well that’s kind of what’s going on this month. You are having to change to meet the changing times you live in. Old patterns simply won’t work in the new place you find yourself in. The larger community ignites your idealism about the things you wish to change within and without. The best ideals are those that can be birthed.
Gemini: This month it’s all about who is steering the ship, car, boat or bike. If it’s you that is steering – which almost goes without saying – then you are a lot more in charge of your life direction than you sometimes think you are. Your deep ties with others are under revision as unconscious habits and patterns along with past actions come more to the surface. This enables you to see more clearly that which you wish to change. On the career front there are big changes afoot this month. Time will reveal all.
Cancer: Restructuring continues to occur in relationships with others from all walks of life, including those closest to you. It’s also a time where you determine the choices that are best for you and the world in which you live. Sometimes decisions need time. It’s a month when you can explore the philosophy of life that resonates with you, and supports your ideals to make the world a better place.
Leo: After a quieter first half of the month things ramp up in the second. You’re being invited to integrate into the wider community and share your gifts more with others. Restructuring is occurring around your health, all forms of communications, including how you write. Relationships in all their forms are under the spotlight – from acquaintances through to more intimate connections. Transformation is underway. The trick is capitalizing on this time right now.
Virgo: Restructuring is occurring in your relationships with children and your sense of creativity and spontaneity. It seems like a tautology but sometimes you have to work at spontaneity which is about feeling relaxed and reducing anxiety. There are many friends and acquaintances that are drawing your attention right now. And it’s all for the good. So dive right into the activity you wish to contribute towards.
Libra: Restructuring continues in the home. Just when you thought things were lightening up – there are still challenges ahead. It’s preferable that home be a place of refuge but not this month or possibly the next. However, if you make practical decisions now in relation to your living situation that is insurance for the time ahead. Health and continuing to heal are a focus. If you feel at home in your body then you can carry your home with you!
Scorpio: With Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio the sense of expansiveness continues: although for Scorpios that could feel overwhelming at times. Sometimes opportunities are too big! There is restructuring going on in communications and relationships with siblings or sibling-type relationships. There are opportunities to transcend your limits through creativity and connections with the young at heart.
Sagittarius: With Mars in your sign you are probably experiencing more confrontations with difficult people than you would like. Develop martial like qualities to deal with Martian like people! There is restructuring concerning finances. At home there are lots of opportunities to re-configure your living space to support a harmonious mind, especially towards the end of the month.
Capricorn: You are embodying change right now on all sorts of levels. You could tell the rest of the world a thing or two as you’ve been experiencing change for some years so you’re ahead of the rest of us! Of course that doesn’t make it a comfortable process. But where there is effort there is reward. It’s like you’re undergoing a personality makeover! Towards the end of the month there is much energy focused on improving communications and connections with others.
Aquarius: It’s definitely been the month of Aquarius with all the encouragement that can bring for working with your friends and local community to create a better world. New innovative ideas abound. How can you best harness your ideas for the greater good. It’s also a time to understand your own internal resistance to change and the habits that prevent you from moving forward. Sometimes these habits are unconscious. Dreams can help identify some of these patterns.
Pisces: The Sun moves into your sign on the 19th of February. Happy Birthday nearly! However, Piscean energy has been gradually building up over the month bringing opportunities for healing, relating and communicating on more subtle levels. With so much Pisces energy there is always a risk of losing oneself in addictions of various kinds. The integrity of your community will be important in supporting you at this time if you wish to break free of old habits.
