Vedic Astrology Report for February 2020: Uplifting Energies

vedic astrology May 2015

In February we are still impacted by the energies and pressures of Saturn’s new transit through the earth sign of Capricorn that just began in January. Venus, planet of love, transits its exalted sign of Pisces almost the entire month of February, bringing some uplifting energies.  Mars completes its transit through the final intense degrees of Scorpio where patience is required. Mars conjunct Ketu in Sagittarius brings impulsive and fiery energies that are best directed into positive, life-affirming channels.  Finally Mercury goes retrograde mid-February demanding clarity in our communications.

The temporary pressures generated from Saturn’s recent shift from Sagittarius, to its own sign of Capricorn on January 23, 2020, is still felt in February.  The need for more order, structure, and discipline in our lives becomes more apparent. Saturn in the earth sign of Capricorn is quite determined, serious, and service-oriented. Saturn is sometimes called the “lord of karma” so during this transit there is a much greater emphasis now to take full responsibility for our thoughts and actions. Saturn transits require maturity, patience, and realism. To balance this, consider donating your time to worthy causes. Let go of the need for recognition, be generous and kind.

Venus transits its exalted sign of Pisces from February 2 to February 28, 2020. On February 26 Venus will be at 27 degrees Pisces, its exact degree of exaltation.  This is generally a positive transit for Venus, as we search for infinite, spiritual love. Our desire for relationship and connection with others may also increase, as we learn to love more unconditionally.  Appreciation of the arts and beauty are emphasized. We feel more creative, loving, and compassionate. Healing modalities also are favored, along with heart-centered devotional practices.

However, Saturn, planet of truth and focus, will aspect Venus from February 2 to 28, 2020 with the exact aspect occurring on February 3 at 1 degree Pisces. The Saturn aspect to Venus generates a more practical, realistic and honest approach when it comes to affairs of the heart. We are asked to be more responsible for our own self-love and not project this need onto others. Saturn’s influence on Venus can have a sobering influence.  The desire for greater commitment, balance, and harmony in all our relationships may be a theme.

Mars, planet of action and assertiveness, transits through the intense last degree of Scorpio on February 6 and 7 and then travels through the first degree of Sagittarius on February 8 and 9. When a planet passes through this juncture, moving from a water sign to a fire sign, openings occur for deeper soul growth and higher awareness if we have a calm mind. The best remedy is neutrality and no resistance.

Mars then begins its transit through Sagittarius where it joins Ketu, the south Node of the Moon, from February 8 to March 22, 2020. Mars will exactly conjunct Ketu at 12 degrees Sagittarius on February 25 and 26, 2020. Mars and Ketu, two fiery planets, are excitable and volatile together. We may not think things through and want quick results, and in haste, take actions that we later regret. This is a time to be calm, composed and non-reactive, as we are more easily provoked. Shadowy Ketu with Mars suggests issues surface that are more unconscious, so we have to work on a deeper level to heal them. This is a time to accept your innate strength and power, slow down, and direct these amplified energies to positive and uplifting expressions. Meditation, pranayama, yoga, rest, and body work are recommended.

Mercury, planet of communications, intellect, and travel, goes retrograde at 18 degrees Aquarius from February 16 to March 9, 2020. Mercury will be retrograde the entire time in the sign of Aquarius. During this retrograde period be more precise and clear in all types of communications, especially around February 25 when Mercury is totally combust the Sun at 12 degrees Aquarius. If traveling, allow extra time in case of a delay, and double-check travel plans. This is a good time to finish up or review previous projects, research subjects, or edit articles. It is also wise to back up your data on computers. Organize your home and prioritize your commitments. This is a beneficial time for meditation and deep reflection.
