February Astrology – Break on Through: Old vs New
The Major Astrological Event on everyone’s calendar this month is the looming tension between the mighty Titan, Saturn (Cronos) & his father, the Original Earth God, Uranus.
Exact on February 18th in Australia, this battle between the old ways & the inevitable new will stir up all kinds of emotions as the Moon brings up the deep feels. We know change must happen but feel restricted in our options. How to move forward through restrictions & constrictions, whether this will be external or internal will depend on how active this square is in your birth chart.
There is assistance available through the whole of February from a helpful aspect to Saturn from the centaur planetoid Chiron. When we see where we need to push through broken down structures in our life, kindly Chiron is ready to assist us in healing through educating ourselves or seeking outside counsel to shift what no longer serves us. Breakthroughs may not be gentle, but they will be just the panacea we needed. Even if we only realise in hindsight.
And there will be plenty of hindsight happening, with everyone’s favourite retrograde here again, already. Mercury will be moving backwards across the loaded Aquarian skies until 21st February. When the old Trickster goes retrograde through Air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra), as it will for the next twelve months or so, we find our thoughts turning to how we communicate in our relationships – are we being heard clearly? Are we listening properly? Is there clarity in our words, our mind? Do we understand what we are being told?
Aquarius is a Fixed sign so there may be a few stubborn overgrown pathways that need to be cleared to find a less cluttered trail to walk on in our journey forward. Retrograde or not, forward is the only direction Aquarian energy is focused on. Get with the program by tearing it up & starting afresh.
After all this pondering about how we communicate, the best time to have any difficult conversations will come later in the month. By doing the work on ourselves first, we will be better equipped to deal with the outcome when we start to give voice to our new way of thinking, speaking, hearing. The future may look so bright we have to wear shades when we are in our own mind, but a gently, gently approach will work wonders in our conversations with others. If we run up against walls & boundaries at this time, then we must respect them. Not everyone will be receptive to lightening fast change.
The end of February brings a sense of feasting & purging to heal & recoup. So much has changed in the last 12 months, more has meant less, & less is still more…the impossible happened & it’s finally feeling like the time to move forward. We have been waiting for 2021 to really begin, rather than 2020 lingering on & on.
