February 2019 Astrology Forecast

February 2019 Astrology Forecast Calendar

Under the Jupiter-ruled first decanate, February emerges with the Saturn-surveyed Moon in the bounds of Mercury. Post Cazimi, Mercury is now blindingly under the beams, and will enter its pre-shadow phase on the 19th, coinciding with this month’s Full Moon. Seemingly bifurcated by Mars, February’s celestial composition formalizes on 2/1/19 with the friction of Mars confronting Pluto via square at 21°39′ Aries-Capricorn, squaring the ascending node at 26°32′ Aries-Cancer, and finally, conjoining Uranus at 29°11′ Aries, directly prior to its ingress into Taurus.

In the Martian terms of Sagittarius, Venus completes a jubilant trine to Uranus before committing to Capricorn’s structural stoicism. Ingressing into the Sea Goat on 2/3/19, Venus’ affirmative qualities grace the sector of one’s chart signaled by Capricorn. This ingress will impact nocturnal charts more poignantly, and can help calibrate charts burdened by Saturn’s more sobering lessons. While this shift from fiery, Jupiter-ruled territory to the solidified boundaries of earthy Capricorn are seemingly somber, the practical objectivity of Venus in the Sea Goat can elucidate and concretize endeavors. However, as elaborated below, contention can surface, partly resulting from Mercury’s condition in Pisces.

This month, simultaneously starting their journeys in the bounds of Venus, both Mercury and Mars ingress into their detriments, Mercury into Pisces (2/10/19) and Mars into Taurus (2/14/19). Stationing retrograde come 3/5/19, the Messenger in Pisces nearly foreshadows March’s mercurial challenges. Prior to this, on 2/19/19, Mercury conjoins Neptune at 15°34′ Pisces, the first in a sequential trio, and enters its shadow phase before its sextile to Saturn at 16°55′ Pisces-Capricorn. As for Mars, on 2/14/19, the red planet is graciously hosted by Venus. In Taurus, the Warrior must abide by the benefic’s reconciliatory rules, a foreign concept to the naturally severing properties of (malefic) Mars.

Nine sextile configurations forge February’s trajectory, beginning with Mercury-Jupiter at 18°15′ Aquarius-Sagittarius and ending with Sun sextile Mars at 9°2′ Pisces-Taurus.

As it began, February’s terminal is chiseled by the Capricorn Moon as Venus completes her journey through the Mars term of the Sea Goat. The notable air-void further accentuates the mercurial labyrinth that must be delicately traversed. On 3/1/19, Venus squares Uranus at 29°47′ Capricorn-Aries before ingressing into Saturn’s diurnal domicile (or sequel) in Aquarius.

Exploring February’s Elemental Air-Void

Essentially, the air affinity is akin to the third-person perspective of a book’s narrative, or a bird’s eye view of a moving picture: impartial surveillance of any given scenario.

In both mundane and natal astrology air-voids are cumbersome to navigate when the remaining elements are heavily activated. In other words, experiencing life through the active/ dynamic (fire), emotive (water), and material (earth) spheres can conceal the subtlety of air. If we look to its qualities, air is, comparatively, easily dissolvable against the remaining elements. Personal detachment is challenging, since the experiences are consumed in immediacy.

Since the unifying properties of air are compromised, uncooperative behavior can beget unsatisfactory partnerships, as hesitance surges when adjusting to new people, ideas, and insights. An amount of distrust and suspicion is applied to purely intellectual pursuits and people. In essence, the main air-void obstacle stems from the inability to objectively approach internal and external circumstances.

Air-voids are often linked to delicate nervous systems with psychosomatic manifestations. When ideas fail to be assimilated (mentally and emotionally), irrational reactions can surge. While the body’s response to inconceivable ideas can produce physical ailment and aggression, these reactions are intended to abolish threat. Physically, excessive air can lead to a highly activated and extremely sensitized nervous system. Consistent meditation and restful, recuperative retreats are necessary for replenishment and the prevention of cerebral exhaustion. Additionally, it is imperative to implement a change of scenery away from the quotidian in order to escape from systematic preoccupations, second thoughts, and interminable plans.
