the second month all planets are direct-no retrogrades. Make use of this time
as it is rare to have a long period with no retrogrades. These are full steam
ahead days, and time to implement your plans and move forward with fewer delays
and obstacles. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and money turns retrograde
March 9, breaking the spell. Of course this doesn't mean you can't move forward
then, but the direct beneficial rays of Jupiter won't be as powerful as they
moving planets move through Aquarius, then Pisces in February. Mars, the planet
of action remains in Sagittarius all month.
peaks at 23 degrees of Scorpio on March 26, where it will remain through March
21. At this point it will start to move backward reaching 13 degrees where it
will once again turn direct on July 10. If Jupiter turns direct on a personal
planet in your chart you can expect positive results.
If you have
water or earth planets (in your personal chart)at 22-24 degrees, Jupiter's
sextile or trine should be quite beneficial in some way later this month and
into March. Jupiter will remain in Scorpio until November 8.
Scorpio will be financially beneficial to some as it rules the 8th house of
other people's money. The 8th house also rules sex. I expect to continue to see
the #MeeToo movement go forward. Jupiter in the
placement has finally helped to bring to light the sexual abuse young female
Olympians endured at the hands of Dr. Larry Nassar. Jupiter's 8th house connection may
leave a long and much needed legacy in society at this time relating to the age
old problem of sex, abuse and power. I wrote about the once in a lifetime
combination of planets that brought this movement about last year.

this time, you may have a clue as to how this eclipse will affect you.

Eclipses are like
wildcards, and one of the ways we learn how and what we need to change and evolve. An eclipse can seem good or bad,
depending on what it aspects in your personal chart, and often an eclipse is
dramatic, or reveals important information if it aspects a significant point in
your own chart/life. An eclipse often brings news pertaining to life's
biggest events. The energy of an eclipse can go for months and in some cases
With an eclipse we have both endings and
beginnings. A solar eclipse is more like a new beginning, and it is always a
new moon. A lunar eclipse can being more news of endings and it is associated with
a full moon.
Almost always unexpected information comes to light
and at this time something may be eclipsed completely out of your life, or into
your life. Eclipses can bring positive or negative events depending on
what it aspects in your personal chart.
Aquarius is ruled by
Saturn and Uranus. With Uranus involved, unexpected information is often
Mars square Neptune will influence this eclipse, and this
transit is confusing, convoluted and many people may feel tired and discouraged,
if not angry.
You could feel like
giving up on something, but don't as this energy will soon pass. With
Mars-Neptune transits previously unknown things and situations can be revealed.
The best use of this
energy is some type of spiritual or creative activity. Compassion can be given
Of course this will play
out in the world. We can see water related weather conditions, unclear
situations, chemical weapons or gasses, lies and deception, smoke and mirrors.
Judge things carefully-all may not be what it appears.
One of the most
noticeable facts about February is there is no full moon. This can only happen
in February once about every 20 years. In
this case the preceding January or December and the following March or April
have two new moons. The next full Moon will occur on March 1, at 11 degrees of
