The Vedic Planets of February, 2018
by marystevenson | Feb 13, 2018
February arrives, with the “bang” of that total lunar eclipse on January 31st, opening the door.
The lunar eclipse occurred in Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. Malefic Rahu, north node of the Moon, briefly “swallowed” this luminary that rules the night sky, putting out its light in a symbolic gesture. Cancerians especially (those with Cancer Ascendants or Moon signs) would have felt this especially strong energy. But as we know, the darkness can never permanently drown out the Light, so once again that bright “super moon” is shining proudly in the night sky. Many people could feel somewhat emotionally disoriented and out of balance, even the normally stable and solid type of personalities. Total eclipses of the Moon or Sun can have the after-effects of energetically triggering earth changes, governmental upsets, civil unrest, military strife, and the like.
2/05/2018 – VENUS enters air sign Aquarius. Those with this very cerebral Rising sign or Moon sign may warm up and show some affection now. Venus is the BEST planet for both Capricorns and Aquarians, due to the houses in their charts that it respectively rules. The “planet pile up” which has been going on in Capricorn for some time, is now beginning to shift into Aquarius, starting with Venus. You may as well consider Venus your “lucky star,” if you have this Ascendant or Moon sign, since it rules your 9th house of good luck, good fortune, destiny, dharma and natural law, plus remedies and pilgrimages. The doors to any of these arenas can open wide for you now. That is why wearing a diamond is good for you, the astrological stone that represents Venus.
2/12/2018 – The SUN joins Venus in Aquarius today. For those with Leo Rising or Moon signs, this is a time when the ruler of their chart enters their 7th house of partners, travel and business. Deepening a relationship could be on your mind if Leo is your sign in Vedic Astrology. Vice versa for the Aquarians; it will be their 7th ruler now crossing their first house, bringing partners to them. What with Venus already there, seems like there will be no escaping SOME kind of interaction with others, for all those Aquarians who normally prefer their own space or spiritual solitude. I’ve known a few like that.
2/14/2018 – MERCURY enters Aquarius. What did I tell you? One more planet playmate for Venus and Sun, already traveling through this fixed air sign. The party expands for the Aquarians. Mercury here can make them feel more talkative and friendly. For Virgos, ruled by Mercury, this is their 6th house. There may be some obstacles or stress to push through. It could be anxiety over taxes, delays of something they’d counted on, etc. Since Mercury also rules the Virgo 10th house of career, if they happen to have a counseling or medical career, this can at least enhance their counseling or problem-solving business or bring in more clients. For Geminis, the other sign ruled by Mercury, this is a better placement. It is their 9th house, which brings better luck and more ease and blessings in life. Happy Valentine’s Day!
2/15/2018 – Partial Solar Eclipse. This is visible only from Antarctica and southern South America. It occurs in the sign of Aquarius, which now has Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury transiting there. This creates a VERY outgoing mixture for the Aquarians, though any eclipse can bring a little bump in the road. Eclipses are NOT auspicious, but most of that energy goes to the areas on Earth where they are visible.
2/19/2018 – VENUS is finally non-combust the Sun. It had been traveling too close to this fiery orb since January 1st, causing some irritation in the lives of the Taurus and Libra Rising and Moon sign folks. Now they can rejoice with more smooth sailing and their normal love of life and all things beautiful and sensual.
