Spiritual Insights February 2019
This month is a time of action as Mars enters the sign of Aries. Mars is the focal point as the dispositor of all the planets. Furthermore it will conjunct Uranus the “Great Awakener” of change and explosive events.
The energy will change from stagnation to progress. January was a time of closure processing old feelings. If you feel your New Year’s resolutions were on hold, now is the wake up time. There is a revitalizing energy that can be used to initiate new ventures. But be aware this energy can be disruptive as Mars is not only conjunct Uranus but it is at the midpoint of Rahu and Ketu. Mars is the planet of passion and anger, and in the sign Aries it can be a quick trigger. This combination of high energy indicates unexpected explosive events.
These sudden changes not only affect the world in the area of attacks and earth changes they affect us internally. This energy can be used as a transformative power within or can result in an undercurrent of anger that builds over time into deep resentments. Transiting Jupiter in Scorpio is being triggered by Mars as it aspects Jupiter by its 8th aspect. As Mars aspects the sign it rules (Scorpio), it magnifies deep emotion and passion. The 8th aspect has a quality of the 8th house, which is about change and transformation. This is the time to release past feelings that prevent necessary changes.
Unaware individuals will focus on their anger projecting their issues onto world affairs blaming the predicaments of their life on world situations. It is time to take back your power to change your life through taking responsibility. This is a month of inward transformations and social reformations. The past cannot control us anymore. There is a new awakening that empowers a new progressive way of thinking.
This month is right before the change of Rahu and Ketu into Gemini and Sagittarius that will bring out the righteous resentments that have been processing during the transit of Rahu and Ketu in Cancer and Capricorn. Use this time wisely to create the changes you want in your life.
Mars is powerful in Aries and conjunct Uranus at the midpoint of Rahu and Ketu shakes up the world and landmasses. There is a series of earthquakes around the world especially since it is soon after the eclipse in January. The area of Japan and the south Pacific is most vulnerable. New awakenings are occurring with space technology and even discoveries in space.
The stalemate with governments around the world is coming to a head. The changing planetary energies are bringing events to a boiling point. The focus this month is in the sign Capricorn as the new Moon, Mercury, Ketu and Venus transit through this sign. Capricorn is the sign of government and this is the area that is going through a transformation. The government shutdown in the U.S., riots in both France and Venezuela are coming to a head.
As transiting Jupiter nears its ghandanta area of the zodiac it will be on President Trump’s Moon and aspecting his Sun in the 10th house. Transiting Jupiter will be aspecting these two planets throughout the spring. Additionally transiting Rahu is conjoining his natal Venus and Saturn in his 12th house of foreign countries. In his fight to get what he wants this seems to indicate a major shift in his favor. But his victory comes at a loss for others and creates a deep seething anger that infiltrates the hidden recesses of the government. The opponents seek other ways to take him down.
In 2020 Saturn and Pluto will begin to transit Capricorn representing a breakdown in how the government is run. But for now with Saturn and Ketu approaching their conjunction in Sagittarius get ready for a showdown with righteous judgmental beliefs.
Mars is a trigger for events astrologically. It was transiting in Pisces over the last six weeks but as it enters Aries February 5th things begin to move forward and as it conjoins Uranus February 13th at the midpoint of Rahu and Ketu expect some explosive events that kick events into action. Mars gains strength in Aries and will explode with anger. It is the final dispositor of all the planets routing the energy to this dynamic planet now. Decisions made at this time ignite a deep seated anger that will eventually result in attacks around the world. The mounting undercurrents of heavy emotion begin to shake the world with volcanic activity and earthquakes.
We are on the brink of a radical shift and change as Rahu and Ketu will be changing into Gemini and Sagittarius next month. Events occurring now will have a different effect as the nodes change signs. The energy worldwide will be changing quickly once the shift occurs.
The economy will be in a volatile mode shifting down one day and up the next till the events take hold globally that will shift the economy in a downward cycle. This comes due to unstable events that generate fear in the world. Many radical changes are due this year. We are on the brink of a major transformation.
