Embracing the Energy of Change

February has the potential to be the true new year we've all been waiting for. The celestial alignment suggests a fresh start and renewed energy. With the official Lunar New Year coinciding with the Aquarius new moon on February 1, the stage is set for a significant shift. As we bid farewell to the regimented Metal Ox and welcome the innovative Water Tiger, the cosmic landscape transforms.

After two years dominated by the influence of Metal (2020 and 2021), which compelled us to rebuild our systems and infrastructures, we now enter a two-year Water phase. During this period, it's all about unlocking our creativity and letting ideas flow freely. While the Tiger encourages us to be strategic in our actions, it's also time to break free from old patterns and embrace new and exciting possibilities.

Leaving the Challenges of January Behind

The start of the year was marred by the retrogrades of both harmonizer Venus and communicative Mercury. January 14 to February 3 saw Mercury retrograde, spanning the future-focused signs of Aquarius and Capricorn. These planetary twists challenged our ability to set goals and plan ahead. Even if you managed to find some momentum, a significant adjustment in the middle of the month completely shifted our cosmic compass as the lunar nodes moved to the Taurus/Scorpio axis.

However, there's good news on the horizon. With Venus now direct and Mercury set to correct its course on February 3, the month ahead promises smoother sailing without any retrograde disruptions.

Love and Passion Take Center Stage

To add to the excitement, Venus and Mars will be closely aligned throughout February, culminating in an exact conjunction during the Leo full moon on February 16. With the planets of love and passion orchestrating this fiery rendezvous just after Valentine's Day, even Cupid himself might be planning an apology tour.

But don't expect the dreamy and ethereal atmosphere of Pisces season to follow immediately. Instead, brace yourself for historic events as February marks the USA's first-ever Pluto Return. This significant planetary alignment occurs at the exact coordinates it was in on July 4, 1776, when the country was founded. The world is experiencing seismic shifts as Pluto, the planet of transformation, makes its grand return. Alongside this, the US chart will also face a Neptune opposition, an event that happens approximately every 165 years. These cosmic events are crucial moments in history, and we're keeping a close eye on the days surrounding 2-22-22.

Looking Towards the Future

With reproductive and voting rights under threat, the ongoing pandemic, and various political upheavals globally, the impact of Pluto's energy is palpable. While February offers improvement over January, it's important to be prepared for the unexpected. As we enter the Tiger Year, let's embrace the fierce energy of February and face the challenges head-on.
