Welcome to Auchterlonie on Astrology, a look at the week of Feb. 11, through Feb. 17 including the new Moon on Feb. 11.
On my podcast you can also find out how to obtain your own personal birth chart including a forecast for the year ahead. The podcast is at www.auchterlonieonastrology.ca.
Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Feb. 11: Today is the New Moon in Aquarius at 23 degrees Aquarius. With a record of six planets in Aquarius, this new Moon is as Aquarius as you can get. If you’re still unsure about the Age of Aquarius agenda, or how this energy will influence you, now you will find out. A new Moon is a new beginning, and a new Moon with six planets in Aquarius means a big Aquarius new beginning, whatever that means for you (according to where the new Moon falls in your natal chart). It was Feb. 11, 1847, that Thomas Alva Edison was born in Ohio. His inventions were many, and he bought as many as he found. His greatest invention was Edison General Electric, the Google of its day.
Feb. 12 to 15: On Feb. 12, Venus is conjunct Jupiter at 12 degrees Aquarius. The next day, Mercury retrograde is conjunct Venus at 14 degrees Aquarius, and on Feb. 15, Mercury Rx is conjunct Jupiter at 13 degrees Aquarius. Triple conjunctions are rare, and the triple conjunction between Venus, Jupiter and Mercury in Aquarius is one to look forward to. As a rule, Venus-Jupiter conjunctions are one of those few five-star transits all astrologers agree on. Mercury retrograde will only make the conjunction even more potent, and give it even more meaning and depth. If you have planets or angles between 12 to 14 degrees in Aquarius, or in the other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio, this triple conjunction will speak to you directly. Both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born Feb. 12, 1809. English rocker Peter Gabriel was born Feb.13, 1950. Happy birthday and happy Valentine’s Day to Carl Bernstein, famous for breaking the Watergate break-in, born this day in 1944. And the man who brought The Simpsons to life, Matt Groening, was born Feb. 15, 1954.
Tuesday, Feb. 16: The Moon is in Aries, friendly to the Sun arguing with Pluto. Try not to be pushy but try to make your life happier. Today is the 63rd birthday of three-time U.S. Open and three-time Wimbledon champ, John McEnroe.
Wednesday, Feb. 17: Saturn (at 7 degrees Aquarius) is square Uranus (7 degrees Taurus); this is the first ‘hit’ of what is the most important transit of the year.
Whatever themes or projects you start to develop around the date of this first direct square, will be part of your life throughout 2021. Unsure what to expect? Pay attention to the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your chart. Go to www.auchterlonieonastrology.ca and I’ll send you a personal reply. Thomas Watson was born on this day in 1874. He went on to found IBM. Now I know why the supercomputer on Jeopardy is named Watson.
And that is all for this week. Next week the Sun and Venus enter Pisces, and Mercury goes direct.
Until then, shine on.
