Happy Sunday everyone! Here we are in a new month and at the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. February’s energies will be a bit calmer compared to last month’s lunar eclipse that activated the same area of Capricorn as the triple alignment planets: Pluto (death & rebirth), Saturn (restructuring) and Jupiter (expansion of belief systems). Just keep in mind that these 3 life-changing planets will be together closely through this year. Now, let’s see what this first week of February has in store for us!


Just before Noon, the Moon will very briefly (like, for a whole minute) go Void of Course. It then moves into Airy Gemini, where we feel that need to socialize, investigate, and communicate. It brings a quick-witted, but somewhat scattered energy, and we need to be careful that we don’t get off course for the next couple of days. It’s a good time for sharing new ideas and using humour to diffuse serious situations. Watch out for the appearance of the evil twin, who utters things that you don’t really mean, just to say them. There may be no rhyme or reason for behaviour-thoughts-feelings today, and it’s all okay.

Adding to this is communication planet Mercury moving into mystical Pisces, which gives our thinking process a more intuitive and imaginative boost. This can add to that problem of letting ourselves get off course. We also have a sextile going on between Venus and Saturn, which makes it the best time to ask ourselves if a dream of ours that we may have shelved can be put into motion.


Tuesday is a quiet one, but we still have that scattered Gemini energy in play. By mid-afternoon on Wednesday, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours and then move into Cancer. We may actually feel the restlessness of the Gemini Moon shift towards that need for peace and quiet that Cancer is known for. Now, the focus turns to family, the home, and the things in our lives we know we can trust and be nurtured by. Mercury will be making a sextile with Uranus today as well, which may make us mentally restless, as well as draw us towards doing something out of character today.


Thursday continues with Cancer’s nurturing and safety yearning energies. Mid-afternoon on Friday, the Moon will once again go Void of Course until the late evening. It then shifts into heart-opening Leo, where we can nurture our inner child and express our true selves. It’s a good time for presentations, celebrations and social events. You might want to leave your weekend open, and let your spontaneous mischievous child inside lead the way. Venus moves into fiery Aries today as well, where we become more assertive with relationships and finances. There’s a spontaneous and impatient energy with Venus in Aries, and we need to be careful about making impulse purchases and decisions in our love life.


Saturday brings a harmonious trine between Mercury and the North Lunar Node, which can help bring us a fresher awareness that helps us to take a few more steps closer to our life purpose. Early Sunday morning, the Moon begins its Full Lunation in Leo. However, it will go Void of Course mid-afternoon and then moves into Virgo just before midnight. Full Moons are a time when things seem more illuminated. Where the New Moon gives us the opportunity to set our intentions in the different aspects of our lives, the Full Moon asks us to stand still for a moment and look at what has come to fruition since the dark moon. With this Leo Full moon, the one person we should be focusing on, and opening our hearts to, is ourselves.

The new week will begin with the Moon in Virgo, where our thoughts turn to practical tasks, getting organized, and paying attention to details. We just need to make sure we don’t get too nit-picky with others at this time.
