During the first three weeks of February Mercury is retrograde, indicating a reset period. The sign of Capricorn is emphasized this month, with six planets transiting the sign, emphasizing a theme of service, hard work, and patience. Mars leaves the independent sign of Aries the last week of February and enters the conservative sign of Taurus. Kala Sarpa yoga occurs two weeks this month, guiding us to focus on the deeper meaning of life. At the end of February, Jupiter and the north node Rahu influence each other, highlighting our material life.

Mercury, planet of communications and the intellect, is retrograde January 30 to February 20, 2021. Mercury began its retrograde phase in Aquarius, but on February 4, 2021, moves back into the earth sign of Capricorn. Mercury retrograde gives us a time to reset and review things in our life as we slow down. Our perspective may change somewhat during these three weeks. Mercury retrograde in the Saturn-ruled sign of Capricorn is a period to rebuild your personal foundation and inner strength. It’s also a time to re-evaluate business and travel plans.

Mars transits Aries the first three weeks of February, until February 21, 2021. Mars is strong in its own sign of Aries and is a planet of initiative and action. Mars in Aries aspects exalted Ketu in Scorpio at 23 degrees on February 9 and 10. It is said that “Ketu acts like Mars,” so there is an amplification of these two fiery, pitta planets. This aspect can be impulsive and accident-prone, so be patient and mindful.  It’s also a time to accept your own power, and to spiritualize your actions.

In the beginning few months of 2021, there is great emphasis on the sign of Capricorn, and in February we will have up to six planets transiting the sign by February 9. This Capricorn stellium means this sign’s traits are more predominant now. Capricorn, being an earth sign ruled by Saturn, is stable, and usually likes traditional values. Capricorn also has a strong connection to nature and environmentalism. Capricorn rules the government, career, service, and organizational skills. The shadow of Capricorn is a deep need to be in control of things or being overly conservative or reserved. Committing to universal compassion and equality, while making needed changes for the good of all concerned, could be positive expressions.

The six planets transiting Capricorn this month are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. Saturn will have the greatest impact and power as it is the slowest moving planet and transits its own sign for two more years. The Moon will only be in Capricorn 2 ½ days from February 9 to 11. The Sun then leaves Capricorn on February 12, followed by Venus leaving Capricorn on February 20 as they move to Aquarius.

On February 21, 2021, Mars begins its journey through the fixed earth sign of Taurus, where it eventually conjuncts exalted Rahu later in March. Mars in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus can be quite passionate and creative. Mars is much slower in Taurus, and has good staying power. We are more determined to create greater security, prosperity, and stability in our lives. We may also experience blocks with our ability to make needed changes, so being more adaptable is important.

Kala Sarpa Yoga occurs for several weeks during each of the first four months of 2021. This is when all the planets are sandwiched between the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu.  This month we have Kala Sarpa Yoga occurring late on February 7 through February 20, 2021. Kala Sarpa is called the “snake of time” and we can fell more restricted or less freewill in our lives. During these two weeks it is best to act with the highest of intention and come from a very ethical and honest place. You might say it’s a time of developing great virtue in life. You might find it easier to concentrate and focus and be more dedicated to your work. Look back at lessons learned and be open to your higher awareness and your personal destiny.

On February 26, 2021, Jupiter in Capricorn and Rahu in Taurus will aspect each other exactly at 21 degrees. Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn, while Rahu is exalted in Taurus. Both of these planets are expansive in nature, and in general Jupiter/Rahu gives a focus on the material life. Jupiter helps temper Rahu, the north node of the Moon. Jupiter in Capricorn could indicate that through hard work we can improve our financial situation. Be clear and do your research with financial dealings, as the shadow of Rahu is selfishness or subtle manipulations. Jupiter/Rahu can also increase our interest in foreign or alternative education or philosophies. This is a time to be generous and giving.
