February 1st marks the midway point between winter solstice and spring equinox. In some climates, the very first seeds of the new year will be planted. Across the northern hemisphere, the return of sunlight is appreciable. The festivals of Imbolc and St. Brigid, held at this time, have long included the element of fire, to signify the return of warmth and light. In 2023, the full Moon, in the fire sign of Leo, will take place on February 5th. As it waxes, we’ll encounter several encouraging alignments and Venus will enter Pisces.

Over the next two weeks the Sun and Jupiter will move into instigating cardinal signs and Mercury will begin its next retrograde. During the course of 2023, the eclipse cycle and lunar nodes will shift from fixed signs to cardinal. The new year will also see significant sign changes for Saturn and Pluto. No doubt, after two plus years of planets, nodes and eclipses being stuck in those persistent fixed signs, the collective gridlock will begin giving way.
During the next two weeks Mercury will be at the heart of a good deal of the planetary action, and its activity has implications for the months, if not years, ahead. On December 5th the Messenger will complete its latest series of mutable sign squares, with one to Jupiter, the next day it will head into conservative Capricorn, and finally, on the 17th, it will make the first of three trines to game-changing Uranus. Concurrently, Wednesday’s full Moon will take place at 16° Gemini 02′. Gemini is one of Mercury’s two homes and where provocative Mars is presently residing, and stirring things up. The confluence of mutable sign activity, including that Mars-charged full Moon, suggests the completion of a cycle. Mercury’s ingress, followed by Venus and the Sun, into cardinal Capricorn portends the initiation of a new phase. The Uranian aspect indicates a wild ride into yet unimagined worlds.
The next two weeks have no shortage of significant astrological events. Those include a solar eclipse, Jupiter’s re-entrance into Pisces, and the start of a Mars retrograde. Also, Mercury will move into Scorpio on October 29th. All of that happens in the buildup to November 8th’s Lunar eclipse. With so much taking place, getting caught […]
Mercury retrogrades are typically associated with review periods. Interestingly enough, the incoming one will be surrounded by several repeating aspects. Taken as a whole, the time to reconsider, revaluate and reinvent is at hand. Mercury’s backwards trek begins on September 9th, when the planet of technology and communication will be at 8 degrees of Libra. That places Mercury at odds with expansive Jupiter, also currently retrograde. The two form exact oppositions on September 2nd and 18th, so prior to and during Mercury’s retrograde. Enthusiastic, optimistic Jupiter has a tendency to over-promise. In impetuous Aries, its exuberance can hardly be contained.
