Weekly Astrology Forecast — Feb 12, 2017 – Feb 18, 2017

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Feb 12, 2017 – Feb 18, 2017:

Coming on the heels of Saturday’s Full Moon lunar eclipse, we start this week with a another lunar aspect: the Moon in Virgo — still full — and conjuncting the North Node. As Virgo is the sign associated with humility, productivity, self-improvement and service to others this Moon is great for shifting our collective focus toward these areas.

Venus in Aries — Feb 3, 2017 – Apr 2, 2017

Venus enters Aries February 3, 2016 at 15:51 UT (or  10:51 am EST). Due to an upcoming retrograde, and with respect to the features of this particular synodic cycle, it will actually remain in Aries until Jun 6th — aside from a 3-week retrograde back into Pisces in April.

Venus is said to be in detriment in Aries, as it is the sign that opposes Venus’ natural ruler, Libra. Traditional or Classical astrology places a lot more emphasis on planetary detriments as they are seen as significant in Classical practices.

There are said to be some disadvantages to having a planet in detriment, usually due to societal norms and expectations rather than any deficit in the archetype itself. But there are also a lot of wonderfully unique attributes associated with this placement as well.

If you happened to have been born with Venus in Aries, you’re probably known as someone who is exceptionally passionate and ardent when it comes to matters of the heart. You probably fall in (and out) of love quickly. You consider yourself a bit of a maverick where love and relationships are concerned. You wear your heart on your sleeve, express your feelings openly, and are not afraid of a little competition.
