Get a load of Love for the Now Age
Show others how much you care
Give your goals the attention they deserve
Now Age love is at its peak this month Aries. On the day the new Moon appears in your 11th on the 11th, we have a major stellium in here comprising of the Sun, Moon, retrograde Mercury (direct from the 21st), Jupiter and Saturn. This is the ‘love shall rule the stars’ line-up. But take it there are as many forms of love as there are planets in here now.
Venus arrives in here at the top of the month. Please remember that although this is Valentine’s month, Venus in this house is about the love of friends rather than bringing you that one special person. I am not saying that love could not spring from a friendship further down the track. Just that if your intention going in is to find romance, this is not your transit under which to do it. Even if it were to start off filled with promise, it is likely to de-evolve into a friendship (nothing wrong with that!), or just end up fizzling out entirely.
However, due to the presence of that stellium, Mercury retrograde hitting Jupiter again and Venus and the Sun meeting Jupiter, there is an exception to this rule. If you are already friends and this is the next step for you both, then February could be the month where you both realise there is more to your connection than just friendship.
Cupid aims the Arrow of Fate
If you are settled, then the whole retroactive and Crazy Cupid buzz around this year’s Valentine’s Day in the sky could see you both remixing the chemistry that brought you together in the first place. Yes, we are in lockdown in many parts of the world. Single? Well, there’s Zoom over which to get together with friends for virtual Galentine’s, Brolentine’s or even gender neutral Palentine’s get togethers. This is a month to show friends how much you care about them. And no, it is not pathetic to be single or on your own on Feb 14.
As well as retro Mercury conjunct Jupiter for the second time on Feb 14, we have a spiritual union of higher love potential happening in your 12th between asteroid Cupido (yes, him with the bow and arrow), Ceres and the Moon. All will square that mysterious part of the galaxy – the Centre which is located in Sagittarius and your 9th. We don’t really know what is at the heart of this – yet. Physicists believe a supermassive black hole.
But what we do know astrologically is the Galactic Centre has a big role to play in the grand design of our lives. As do our friends, contacts and wider networks which stretch out like the arms of our galaxy. So, if you have no boo, reach out and tell people how much you care. You may be utterly amazed at what comes back.
People Make the Magic Happen!
If not love, then it is a month to be pouring love into your goals as well as those connections. You’ve a whole lot of help happening. State your intentions for the future as Venus meets Saturn on the 6th. Many of you could see opportunities, benefits, gifts or solutions manifest via friends, professional contacts or who you know. Jupiter in your 11th is all about making not just one wish but three. And to expect at least one to manifest during its stay in here. Usually via your connections.
Let’s talk about the New Moon in your 11th on the 11th. It’s a new Moon of invention and innovation. To follow up your most ingenious ideas. Because yes, it is all about setting those goals in motion for the future. And astrologers have long associated this particular new Moon with doing exactly that. This is also the new Moon which ushers in the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Ox. Again, an important time for new beginnings. So, set your intentions. And then act once Mercury heads direct in here once again on the 21st.
Tight aspects to ruler Mars in your 2nd also tell you its people power that you need to harness if money and other resources are on that goals list. Dates to watch as the 1st – Sun square Mars, 19th – Venus square Mars and a power move trine between Mars and Pluto in your 10th on the 25th. By all means open the dialogue or plan the move, by try to delay final negotiations until after the 21st.
You will be aided by intuitive superpowers from the 18th when the Sun crosses into your 12th. Venus follows on the 25th. Ceres will enter your 1st on the 21st. It is the planet of win/wins and compromises. All this has you looking at the ‘you and me’ aspect of all your relationships. And the give and take that takes place in all of them. This month points to the giving that flows via friends.
This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.
The full Moon in your 6th asks you to use intuition when it comes to habits and wellbeing issues you have carried with you into 2021. And gives you the opportunity to revise and shed if necessary. The Moon rules Cancer – the sign of nurturing and which rules the stomach. This full Moon is therefore an excellent one under which to instigate those new eating habits – and stick to them. And also, if you need help – to buddy up. Which is your key to success in any goal for the Now Age.
In a nutshell: Love potential for the Now Age peaks this month along with the planets in your 11th, Aries. Just remember – love takes many forms this month. But starts with those connections.
