MARS enters Libra Feb. 4th; Mercury goes Retrograde Feb. 6th

February 3, 2014

Are you ready for the astrological changes February is bringing in?

Well, ready or not, folks, here they come:

2/04/14 – fiery planet MARS enters the air sign Libra, where it will be conjunct with its enemy SATURN, which is very strong in his sign of Exaltation, as well as tricky north node RAHU.  This is going to be one doozy of a conjunction!  Yes, it does make me worry for possible outbreaks of violence throughout the world, including at the Olympics.  This is simply a very volatile planet line up.  Saturn is like the Immovable Object and Mars is like the Irresistible Force, to give you some idea of what I mean.  I am also concerned about several clients, friends and relatives who have been driven nearly to the edge already, just from Saturn and Rahu’s conjunction in Libra for the past year! Those of you with Libra Rising or Moon signs will be feeling this the most….

2/06 until 28 — Mercury will be retrograde. This can be expected to throw the typical monkey wrench into communication and any equipment which deals with same. Try not to take it personally, especially those of you with Virgo or Gemini Rising or Moon signs!

2/12 – Sun enters Aquarius – For Leo, the sign ruled by the Sun, this will be a pleasant change, as it leaves the 6th house of worry, enemies and obstacles and enters the 7th house of partners, travel and marriage, although this is still an enemy’s sign for the Sun, just as Capricorn was in the previous one month transit.

2/09 – 21 – Mercury combust the Sun.  Combustion occurs when a planet travels too close to the Sun. This condition makes the planet (and those ruled by it! – Virgos and Geminis) feel more irritable and crabby, rather than their usual diplomatic selves. Tactfulness may go by the wayside during this period.

2/18 – Mercury backs up into Capricorn (it has been in Aquarius).  Now we have the time to re-examine, or complete projects begun during the previous transit of this sign.

2/25 – Venus enters Capricorn – it is in a friend’s sign here and thus happy to bestow so many Venusian gifts upon those with Capricorn Rising or Moon signs: affection, comforts, even luxuries, pleasures – just be careful not to overdo it in terms of self-indulgence, Capricorns!

Looking ahead some into future months, there are some interesting points to consider:

 March 1st Mars will go retrograde, while in Libra.

March 24th Mars backs up into Virgo.  It does not go into direct motion again until May 19th.

JULY 13 will be a heck of a day!!

Early that day, at 1:40 a.m. MDT Rahu moves backwards, into Virgo (and Ketu into Pisces).  At 9:41 a.m. MDT Venus enters Gemini.  At 9:14 p.m. MARS enters Libra (again) and will stay there until September 4th!  So for awhile earlier that day, both Rahu and Mars will be in Sandhi (the gap) at late degrees of the same sign (Virgo) so that’s not a fun time, either.

When is the last time you treated yourself to a Vedic Astrology reading? It is only in the context of a personal reading that I can fully explain what all these planet movements mean for you now, and in the year ahead.

Thank you for any referrals you may send me for  a personal reading, yearly reading, couples compatibility reading or astrocartography reading,or if you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member of dear one. Please just call on me, and we can schedule a 90 minutes, taped session. From the Sunshine Corner, as ever, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, 303-473-9393, healingevents@yahoo.com.
