By Kaye Berjot –
February is one of those months that will have you going through the peaks and valleys of life so that you can come out on the other side with renewed confidence. Jupiter will retrograde on February 7th in Libra. This could cause you to take a good, long look at relationships, by putting a scrutinizing eye on what’s good for you and what’s not. In this position, Jupiter doesn’t withhold; it allows you to put things into context, and as a benefit put things in order. Mercury will cover old ground, which provides you with new information that allows Mars to eventually break away from the pack. During the middle part of the month, Chiron will want you to take a look at some unconscious barriers that have been holding you back. The best way to view this is as if you were weeding a garden. If you look around and see that you’ve weeded everything that you can see, what happens if you take a step to the right and look down? Will you find that you’ve been standing on top of a weed that’s been covered up by your lack of movement? This will be the month that you get out of neutral, and into drive mode.
** Please see the end of the month for information about the Moon Void of Course (VoC). **
Wednesday, February 1
As we start out the day with a T-Square including Jupiter, Mercury, Pluto, and Uranus, there’s an opportunity that presents itself. This can be stressful, yet encouraging when the pressure to react can be a powerful motivator.
Thursday, February 2
As the Moon joins the T-Square, emotions can boil, causing you to be more creative than you ever thought possible. Today you are a leader; you own your emotions. These feelings will help you build, grow, and share with those that are worthy. Moon VoC 10:50 AM until 7:50 PM in Taurus.
Friday, February 3
As the Moon makes a positive aspect to Saturn, you become emotionally attached to the stability. You want to find stable relationships; in particular, those that make you believe that something great could happen.

Monday, February 6
This is “make it happen” Monday. A Grand Trine is in full effect when the Moon in Gemini, Jupiter in Libra, and the Sun in Aquarius converse. It looks like the train is leaving the station, and has a destination. All aboard! Moon VoC 4:43 PM until tomorrow morning.
Tuesday, February 7

Thursday, February 9

When the Moon squares Saturn, there’s a lesson to be learned. It usually has to do with allowing yourself to explore all of the corners of the universe without destabilizing your energy. Moon VoC 6:36 AM until 2:43 PM in Libra.
Tuesday, February 14
Are you unconsciously standing in your own way? Chiron at 23 ° Pisces thinks so, as it makes aspects to Saturn, the Sun, Uranus, and retrograde Jupiter. Look to Saturn to help you figure out what really needs to be accomplished. and use the energy of Pluto to make it happen.

Moon VoC 7:54 PM until tomorrow morning.
Thursday, February 16

Sunday, February 19
As the Moon nestles into the comforting arms of Sagittarius, it makes a positive aspect to Venus, Mars, and Uranus. This indicates that there’s a bit of a journey toward self-discovery. When you become emotionally attached to your own forward movement, there’s nothing that can hold you back.
Monday, February 20

Friday, February 24
Movement without clarity is like the blind leading the blind, when the Moon is in Aquarius. You’re not blind. The Moon sees Venus, Mars, and Uranus, and those three planets are anything but blind. Those are the “we’re going for it” planets.

Sunday, February 26
Uranus and Mars are holding hands and waving at Saturn today. There could be a little bit of nervousness in the air, because you recognize that you can’t look backwards. With that said, you can move forward with more insight than you’ve ever had before. New Moon 8:58 AM in Pisces.
Monday, February 27
Mars is packing its bag, and preparing to break away from the pack. It’s a solo mission, yet one that’s rewarding. There’s something to be said about paving your own path. VoC 5:08 PM until 10:52 PM in Aries.
Tuesday, February 28
As the Moon enters Aries, it makes a stressful aspect to Saturn. This isn’t meant to deter you; it’s meant to let you know that you’ve traveled far and wide. You’ve gone deep, and you’ve soared high. This isn’t a plateau; it’s a sneak peek from the highest mountaintop.
The Moon Void of Course (VoC) is the time period from when the Moon makes its last aspect in one sign before moving into the next sign. The Moon is the fastest-moving planet, and transitions from one sign into the next every 1-3 days. What that means is that the Moon is constantly in motion, it’s never retrograde, so it’s inevitable that she will connect with “something,” i.e. another planet or transit, until the moment that she doesn’t. During the moments when she doesn’t connect, we call it the Moon Void of Course. When these events occur, the best thing to do is to meditate, sit still, and listen to your higher guidance. Sitting still doesn’t mean to physically sit still, although it can be beneficial.
