As you might expect February is roaring in, breathing fire and brimstone. Mars, the planet of war, aggression and action, is in his own sign Aries — and he seems to be in fighting mode. He’ll be arguing with Pluto and then running slap into electrical Uranus on February 27. This is not a good day to jump into your jalopy and hit the road, by the way. It looks like something is going to blow. This combustible atmosphere starts right from the beginning of the month and just builds. The last 10 days are especially fraught.
Meanwhile, Venus is also in Aries, but she’s slowing down as she trails through the month — possibly finding more and more to get cross about.
And then there are the eclipses — more about these on a personal level inside. But it’s clear that we are already in the grip of the new Leo-Aquarius eclipse series which will unfold over the next year and a half. You could characterise that axis as the King (Leo) vs the People (Aquarius). Who will eclipse whom?
In honour of the Aquarius, that most futuristically fixated sign, and for those of us considering emigrating to another planet, the pictures this month come courtesy of NASA.
