The monthly horoscope for February 2019 has Mars triggering a few planets but the most important things about this Mars is that it is incredibly potent since it is in one of the signs that it rules, Aries. Venus is also busy too, conjuncting three points in Capricorn. Those cardinal signs are really getting the best out of the planets of love and sex. This is also the month of St Valentine of course! We are coming out of the frosty months of winter and there is a slight glimmer of sap rising from the earth. February can feel like a bit of a nothing month since it is neither Spring nor does it have the sparkle of Christmas or the New Year. But I guess they had to find an excuse to sell cards so Valentine’s day fills the void of dull, rainy days nicely.
February Astrology ~ Valentine’s Special
So we start with Mars square Pluto which is incredibly predatory, very handy if you are in pursuit of a date for February 14. Mars square Pluto marries sex with power since the dynamism of the hard aspect will pull out these planets most domineering qualities. Negatively this aspect makes the bully or ruthless dictator. However more positively it endows steel guts and the deep courage of a survivor.
Sexually this is a bit of a humdinger. Anyone touched by this aspect will need to channel this furious energy into physical exercise if they do not have a partner. But even if they DO have a partner, one may not be enough as Mars in Aries is going to make Pluto more sexually obsessive voracious. So yes, beware of stalkers leading up to Valentine’s day.
This is a very nice month for love, Valentines or not though as Venus makes an exciting trine to Uranus on February 2before this planet moves into Taurus for the next seven years. Passionate farewells may be on the cards during this time, but also new starts. Mars conjunct Eris on February 3 could see some apple bombs being thrown by a spurned lover. “Hell hath no fury” when Eris is wronged or exiled. This can also surface as narcissistic rage if one has managed to escape the prison of Mars square Pluto.
Sun conjunct Lilith on February 9 plays out as the ego feeling exiled from the dominant cultural system. Sometimes this is as a result of actual abuse from authority figures. The closer Lilith gets to the Sun the more it feels eclipsed. At this time certain people are demonised for revealing the shadows at work in the world. But those touched by this aspect must be careful they don’t fall for the forbidden fruit of drugs to numb the pain of feeling like an outcast.
February Monthly Horoscope Aspect ~ Valentine’s Grenade
The day before Valentine’s day could see some bombs dropped with Mars conjunct Uranusat on February 13, hopefully, this with only be metaphorical. Someone could admit to an affair or come clean that they have been living a lie concerning their choice of partner. Uranus can be confused over its sexuality also so some could admit that they have feelings for someone of the same sex or be confused about their gender. Maybe this comes out In the news with a prominent person, though these days it is not the big scandal it once was.
Over to Venus now as she makes some power conjunctions with Saturn, Pluto and the South Node in quick succession. But she starts with a dreamy sextile to Neptune on February 17. It reads like the start of a romantic novel really. The euphoric, poetic start then on February 18 Venus conjunct Saturn wants to know if this is real or just fantasy. Venus conjunct Pluto on February 22 things get very intense and maybe become more physical. That way Pluto has got under Venus’s skin.
On February 26 Venus conjunct the South Node is looking back to the past and wondering if this new relationship is karmic and/or from a past life. Whatever is your Capricorn house will give you some idea what style this romantic novel will take. Eight houses will be gothic and dark, the seventh house could ring serious wedding bells while the tenth house could just be an office fling. In the monthly horoscopes, I will have a look at how Mars conjunct Uranus at 29º Aries will affect your sign and also Venus’s juicy conjunctions through your Capricorn house.
