We begin this month with all the planets moving in direct motion for the next two months. so take your foot off the brake and move forward with your plans. You can start slowly in the first two weeks as the energy builds around the 16th as the elemental balance starts to shift.
There’s an abundance of earth signs during the first two weeks of the month with three planets in Capricorn and two planets in Taurus dominating the elemental balance. There are also two planets in the air element and two in the water element.
The elemental balance shifts by February 16th to five planets in the air element of Aquarius, two in watery Pisces and two in earthy Taurus as the energy gains momentum.
By the end of February it shifts again to four planets in water, three in air and two in the earth element. So, during the latter part of the month, check in with your feelings, pay attention to your emotions and intuition and get ready to start looking at your life path and future in a new way. It feels right for a leap year! What are you going to do with that extra day this month?
Mercury is separating from Mars now so the argumentative energy is waning. Venus is approaching Mars so there’s a desire for relationship beginning to develop as they dance together for the next 5 weeks. This can develop with more intensity from the 14th through the 20th as both planets conjunct Pluto’s position at 0 degrees of Aquarius.
