– Corollary to New Moon at 27° of Aquarius
February 15, 2018 ~ 04:06 pm EST / February 15, 2018 ~ 09:06 pm UST
This full moon at 4° of Aquarius will bring us an element of chaos.
Significantly, Venus is transiting Virgo at 19°, in her fall, where love and affection will not be easily expressed under the influence of critical Virgo. Women will be in no mood to suffer fools.
Conversely, Mars is retrograde at 3° detached and rebellious Aquarius. Men may find themselves rebelling without a cause and this retrograde period demands a rethinking of action and an understanding of why; some may be inclined to act with no clear strategy in mind, creating an anxious, frustrating period.
Overall, this could be a poor time for relationships between the sexes, and only those who thrive in chaos or enjoy challenge – will find anything to like about this lunation.
Mars at 3° Aquarius also opposes the sun at 4° Leo, bringing emphasis to any rules or self-expression we might find dissatisfying, resulting in a desire to unleash our Mars energy where we feel our unique, individual voices stifled by others.
This will be especially potent as Mars at 3° Aquarius adding emotional intensity. Privately, we long to indulge in our feelings and be at one with who we truly are, and to express it in our physical lives – yet, our public lives might not have the room built into them for such a purpose. Our discomfort increases and with it, the potential for argument, combativeness.
The moon and Mars conjunct in Aquarius will square Uranus at 2° of Taurus, as well as the sun in 4° of Leo, suggesting a challenge to our resources, we may be called upon to use money creatively, or someone in our circle of friends is cash-strapped, or there is a chance to help finance a start-up. Venus in Virgo will not release the purse strings until her examinations are satisfied.
Venus at 19° of Virgo will form a trine to Pluto at 19° of Capricorn, while also opposing Neptune at 16° of Pisces – this will emphasize a tight-fisted hold on money, a lack of it, and an effort to service which might feel futile and give one a sense of a lack of gratitude, or being taken for granted. This may threaten good will between others if taken too far.
Saturn at 3° Capricorn retrograde will trine Neptune at 16° of Pisces, where we should find an agreeable quickening between structures and figures of power and a desire to dissolve rules and regulations that no longer serve the greater good, providing new freedom where before there was only restraint. Meanwhile, Saturn will also be inconjunct the sun at 4° Leo. The dissolution of the trine might spread discomfort and instability central to the self, and we will learn to accommodate – with difficulty.
The north node at 5° Leo will conjunct the sun and oppose the moon and Mars at 4° Aquarius, and the north node will also be square Uranus at 2° of Taurus.
Our solar, ego self will be aligned to the nodes purpose, while the moon and Mars will pull us away, distracting us with emotional matters and physical pursuits and we should not lose sight of the critical components of Leo – big-hearted generosity, leading by example, and the creative principle which like the sun, radiates onward. Courage is critical as this node faces a square from Uranus at 2° Taurus, bringing unpredictability to our resources.
~24TH MANSION OF THE MOON: AL SA’D~
The luckiest of the lucky. Gives marital happiness, victory of soldiers but prevents the execution of government. With moon here, build, marry, make friends and travel.
