February Planet Report….by Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, 928-284-4060
Are you Scorpios enjoying the relief of Saturn’s recent movement OFF of your Rising Sign, Moon sign or Sun sign? That occurred on January 26th. Already some of my friends, especially the Scorpio Moon groups, have shared with me their feelings of relief from Saturn’s grinding pressure.
2/03/17 – Mercury moves into Capricorn, a friend’s sign. It will join the Sun there. This placement is fine for the Virgos, ruled by Mercury, but not so good for the other signed ruled by Mercury, Gemini. This 8th house for them represents Transformation, battles and disunion, vulnerability, life and death. So it’s never exactly comfortable when it’s making this transit each year. Mercury will move on 2/22/17 into Aquarius, bringing some relief.
2/05/17 – The great benefic Jupiter goes Retrograde! This lasts until 6/09/17. Jupiter is currently in Virgo, which should bring to this earth sign both friends and partners, so that is a nice placement for them. The two signs ruled by Jupiter are Sagitarius and Pisces. The placement for both of them is okay. When a benefic planet goes retrograde, it is generally thought to enhance its benefic energies. (The opposite is true for a malefic planet).
2/10-11/17 – Depending on where you live, this partial (penumbral) lunar eclipse will occur over one of these dates. The range of visibility will be in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia. Please remember that eclipses are never auspicious but just the opposite and their effect is felt most greatly in the areas in which they are visible. It looks to me that it will be at full effect here in Sedona, AZ on Feb. 11th around 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. This eclipse occurs in the sign of Leo.
2/12/17 – The Sun moves into Aquarius for a month. Though still in an enemy’s sign (as both Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn), this will be a much better placement for the LEOS, who are ruled by the Sun. It is going away from their 6th house of rivals, enemies and competitors into their 7th house of business and partnerships, also travel.
2/16/17 – Mercury goes combust the Sun (traveling too close for comfort). This condition will last until 3/21/17. Those most affected are Virgo and Gemini Rising and Moon signs, but everyone will have to watch for being less than tactful. Try and keep communications positive and thoughtful now.
2/22/17 – Mercury enters Aquarius. This is helpful to Geminis as it is their 9th (best) house, but not so helpful for Virgos. This is their 6th house of worry, health problems, enemies, rivals and competitors. Plus it will be traveling with tricky Ketu, so watch your back, literally and figuratively.
2/26/17 – Annular Solar Eclipse. This partial eclipse will not be seen in the USA. It occurs in the sign of Aquarius. Those with Aquarius Rising or Moon signs may feel especially intuitive at this time, but it’s not a good moment to make big decisions or take actions. It will be visible in S. America, Atlantic, Africa, Antarctica.
