Astrology Brief for February 5-11, 2024 from Sandra Helton©

 

Energy continues to build for the Solar Eclipse that will streak across the United States on April 8. While the eclipse is in Aries it’s also very Aquarian due to current transits that are part of the influence. This week Mercury moves into Aquarius with soon to transit there also Venus and Mars that activates Pluto already there and part of this era creating major societal shifts not just in the US but across the world. This is part of an overall pattern not always observed or realized, but due to years of experience and research it’s my conclusion that the already unusual actions and behaviors will continue and also again shift.

There are speculations that the current state of the world is due to reaction to the pandemic though the pandemic too is part of a pattern though isn’t exactly it. Without the pandemic the Age of Aquarius and the multiple celestial influences plus Pluto are the root of actions. This week is an ongoing prelude of the eclipse. While many feel much is dire, there are positive elements to be gleaned and worked with for positive individual outcomes. Right now is one such pattern through Aries where you may begin to weave your own objectives and lifestyle.

Mercury and Pluto conjunct in Aquarius on Monday is active now that presents numerous stark realities and truths you may look to for answers and to be more in the know for ways to manage.

Tuesday brings Venus sextile Neptune that is ideal for creativity and exercising your deepest abilities. There can be unusual harmony and connections with others that seem divinely guided. Pay attention to your instinct and inclinations that may be telling your something special about yourself or someone else. There can be romance and fanciful inclinations.

Mars sextile Neptune on Wednesday is unusual in that it could produce desires that are not your usual inclinations and ideas. You’re encouraged to think outside the box and pay attention to where you’re drawn. This is a time when you can accomplish much in an ideal fashion. You may learn much about yourself and what makes you tick.

The Sun square Uranus on Thursday challenges the status quo and pulls you toward the different and unusual which may not be the best direction so remain an observer. Chaos and fragmentation can easily take hold and throw you into unknown territory. Take a conservative approach with any involvements.

Friday’s New Moon in Aquarius coincides with Mercury square Jupiter on Saturday that suggests you work on ideas and plans and your intentions with a moderate approach to beginnings so you don’t go too far or move too fast that could end with diminishing returns or loss. The New Moon launches a two week cycle to ponder and think about what you want to do and where you want to go. A step at a time is best rather than taking a speculative leap. Planning is the best forte right now.

Astrology Brief for January 29-February 4, 2024 from Sandra Helto

 

This is an interesting week as we roll into February that brings numerous types of holidays and also a leap day, February 29 that occurs once every four years to adjust the calendar timeline. February 10 is the Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon followed by Mardi Gras on February 13 and Valentine’s Day February 14. One way or the other millions of people will be celebrating various aspects of culture and beliefs setting a pace as we move toward spring and continue to forge ahead into the year. So many around the world feel duress and anguish about the future and yet strive to keep moving forward as best as possible. Celestially a part of this intensity is due to the newness of Pluto in Aquarius that adds pressure on the status quo to in some way uproot and/or change. Being stuck in economic circumstances leaves many blank as to how to make changes when against the wall financially and otherwise. Aquarius affects all, being a global influence and especially so regarding society which is why in part social media is important to so many and also the intensity of news outlets making so many twists and turns that too many are left with confusion and greatly in need of clarity and reason. Saturn, which is structure and foundation, is current in Pisces that can add shade to everything calling for the need to exercise discernment and stretch to think intuitively in seeking truth. Faith that is Pisces ruled is greatly called for now that’s obscured by Saturn plus Pluto in Aquarius. Life isn’t simple or clear and when economic and social shifts occur which they are now people are tossed around on a long road like a high wind pushing everyone. It’s as if there was an unexpected turn leading to suddenly being in a demolition derby. Many haven’t gotten their sea legs from the pandemic that’s been a struggle due to worry of another onslaught of lockdown. Pandemics fall under the rulership of Neptune and Saturn in Neptune specifically rules that. Saturn will be in Pisces overall until 2026 – more about that in an upcoming article. For now, you’re between that and Pluto which explain the literal and sense of dire straits.

Taking a day at a time, and here a week at a time, beginning Monday Mars trine Uranus is great for garnering energy to get moving and take the initiative. Being innovative can work well so paying attention to inspiration and ideas can be rewarding. This is great for setting a pace relating to a goal.

Mercury sextile Neptune this Friday lends insight and depth to everything as well as increasing creativity. The imagination is strong and being able to perceive energy around you is easy. This is a nice time to tap into your inner thoughts and feelings for intuitive information.

On-going energy:

Venus enters Capricorn today where it will be until February 16 that benefits businesses, corporations and even nations and their leaders with greater harmony and an easier time. Comradery grows as people find common ground to bond and work together. Personal areas of life such as where you have closeness and love become more pragmatic; logic takes precedence. You can see your way to settle contention and regain peace and order for yourself.

Pluto now in Aquarius is a major influence and long haul of challenging the world at large to be more clearly defined ranging from sorting through individual stance to moving into herd mentality as the path of least resistance. Being your own person and thinking for yourself is the ideal though a greater push is unfolding to pull people into groups and specific lanes. Some will blame AI (artificial intelligence) which is ruled by Aquarius though that isn’t the true reality as it’s more about “influences” to positively align with like minds and also attempts to pull people into group agendas. Stepping back from that idea, thinking for yourself and exercising your wisdom will help you decide where you best align.

Mars is in Capricorn remains until February 13 providing tenacity and the ability to be thorough and persistent as needed. Major projects benefit from this reliable energy and you can build where you need from small tasks, beginning personal maintenance for health, exercise and where you want to build strength and stamina.

Until Thursday when the Moon is full in Leo (12:54 PM ET) are good days to complete tasks and
begin to wrap up everything so you moving under the rays of growth. The Leo Full Moon, sometime called the Wolf Moon, helps in numerous areas of life with the foundation being about your own strengths and abilities so fortifying your intentions work well. Areas of life governed by Leo are children that can bring you more into their life and they gravitate more to you; matters of the heart which is romance, love affairs and all things you’re drawn to such as ways you fulfill your hearts desires that could be music, art, and anything providing enjoyment; your creative spirit so artisans are especially driven during this time.

The Aquarian Sun squares Jupiter on Saturday cautioning to consider carefully investments and to take a conservative approach to spending as something may appear to be a good deal and turn out to be a disappointment. Monetary matters can go awry. Generosity is lost so expect to coast and wait for a better time to indulge.

Also on Saturday Mercury and Mars conjunct in Capricorn creating a stirring of the masses where there’s likely much talk and a flurry of activity. People want to connect, travel and network. You may feel enthusiastic and eager to get going or reach out. This can facilitate alignment for groups that helps to get them underway.

Sunday is a busy day celestially with three major planet angles. Venus sextile Saturn is a nice workable energy for pulling together groups, family and anywhere you want order and a working cohesiveness. Plans of any nature can work out well and you can progress creatively and socially.

Venus also trines Jupiter that aligns very well with the sextile and helps to grow and expand where you wish.

Tidbit about dog food

 

Just in case someone doesn't know - plain canned pumpkin in dog food helps digestion - not the type with spices but plain. A spoon or so mixed in, depending on the size of the dog is worth checking into.

Astrology Brief for January 15-21, 2024 - Powerful Energy comes Home to Roost from Sandra Helton©


Already, before the actual date of the solar eclipse in April, the Sun is showing its power asit will throughout the year.

On Monday the Sun sextile Neptune enhances everyone’s intuition that resonates through the week with stronger awareness and creativity manifesting in a number of ways as artisans hatch new ideas and all seeing more clearly the unspoken word, the feelings and even for some sensing motivations of others. Society is plugged into the higher realm of Neptune. Dreams may be stronger along with your ability of psychic perception and tuning to the spirit realm.

Wednesday’s Quarter Moon in Aries is part of the trigger point of the upcoming solar eclipse that is a marker of energy directly active until the Full Moon in Leo on February 25. This is positively aligned with the celestial dynamics during the week making your efforts more likely to begin to grow and come to fruition. Ideas are very worth the time to consider.

Mercury sextile Saturn on Thursday helps to organize information and all forms of necessary work and also it’s easier to organize your mind. Plans and goals are easily put into place for action.

Mercury trine Jupiter on Friday is super! All forms of communication is bolstered in a good way so reaching out to others and declarations are strong and worth the effort. Mental capacity expands and thoughts grow making this great for visualization and taking action to improve your life. Connectedness is ever growing as is support of one another.

Saturday is a big day launching massive rays through the Sun entering Aquarius conjunct Pluto that carries forward throughout the year. Many will respond to this by settling within their own feelings and views about the world and many will dive deeper into already cultivated thoughts making more intense societal structures, both positive and challenging. There can be stronger definitions of where one stands as that can go either way depending on motivation. For some division increases and for others there’s more unity through greater definition and needs to align.

This next month while the Sun is in Aquarius people are more aware and sensitive to societal prodding and also more aware of individual needs to think about plans for the future. You may want to develop more alignment for your goals and strive to be more definitive of your beliefs and place in the world.

Pluto now in Aquarius is a major influence and long haul of challenging the world at large to be more clearly defined ranging from sorting through individual stance to moving into herd mentality as the path of least resistance. Being your own person and thinking for yourself is the ideal though a greater push is unfolding to pull people into groups and specific lanes. Some will blame AI (artificial intelligence) which is ruled by Aquarius though that isn’t the true reality as it’s more about “influences” to positively align with like minds and also attempts to pull people into group agendas.
