The Sun is in Aquarius now and Mercury will be entering this innovative, futuristic sign on Valentine’s Day. This ushers in a time that bodes well for new and innovative approaches to planning and problem solving. The transition to Aquarius from Capricorn changes the element from earth to air. This provides a good time for a bit of detachment from the more intense energy of the Mercury/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn which has tended towards overthinking.
A broader, freer perspective will be available in the next few days and things will start moving forward more quickly.
Tuesday the Sun moves up to a square with the Lunar Nodes. This presents a good time to look at your relationship to power and to empowerment. The North Node in Taurus encourages us to move away from unproductive, self defeating ways of using power and into a more evolved, conscious and authentic direction.
Venus and Mars form an exact conjunction at 16 degrees of Capricorn this week. These two are traveling together in Capricorn and then will move into Aquarius together. This is the aspect of the Cosmic Lovers. It’s a good time for romance and for bringing more harmony into relationships and partnerships of all kinds.
Pallas Athene has moved into Aries. This goddess advocated for justice and was renowned for her ability to create effective strategies. She brought the knowledge of conflict mediation to the gods and goddesses and would go to great lengths to avoid war. But when all the options were exhausted – no alternatives left- she was invincible in battle. She was known for her prudent restraint and was often pictured with an owl – a reminder of what she could not see.
Pluto is making a favorable alignment to the North Node now – giving power and traction to plans for the future that are clearly defined and well structured. Pallas Athene in Aries lends drive and ambition. It’s a good time to take action.
The Full Moon is Wednesday at 11:56 AM at 28 degrees of Leo. More about this later.
The Sun will enter Pisces on Friday.
