On FEBRUARY we have the following main configurations: 

This month is the most dynamic due to Venus Mars and Uranus are in Aries. All of you need to find ways to release and use wisely these energy combinations. Otherwise all these will get not so good results: loss of harmony, no chance of understanding or cooperation and peace will become only a nice dream. You get courage, creativity, energy, ambition, action. Use all this in doing things, now is time of action, work, practice sport, do whatever you need but do not become inactive.

The T-square formed by the Venus-Mars-Uranus trio in Aries, with Jupiter in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn has a great violent potential: risk of accidents due to transportation industry (cars, trains, planes, and undergrounds), conflicts, terrorist attacks, riots, and natural disasters, a preface of financial crisis, especially in EURO zone. The economic crisis will increase especially during Venus retrograde period. You have some lately real examples:

In United Kingdom:

Banks increasing the notice time from 24 hours to 48 hours when withdrawing over £2,500.This is to make it harder to pull your money out quickly and to prevent a run on the bank. The company that provides the Link ATM cash machines is to start charging for previously free money withdrawals – and will start to reduce the number of machines in an effort to make it harder for customers to withdraw.

In Germany:

It had been announced the withdrawal of the 500 euro note and it will not allowing of any transactions above 5,000 euro in cash without written approval from government.

The danger for bail in will become very high. This is happened when the banks empty out customers’ accounts to keep themselves safe. Do you remember the experiment made in Cyprus few years ago? In Cyprus case, the final deal ended up keeping deposits under 100,000 Euros untouched, but uninsured deposits were restructured, wiping out the savings and cash flow of foreign depositors and local businesses alike.

For many people, the question was whether this will be a template for future banking crises in the European Union and elsewhere. When Jeroen Dijsselbloem, president of the Eurogroup, said that would be considered in future bailouts in an interview with Reuters and the Financial Times, markets panicked, causing Dijsselbloem to issue an immediate retraction of his recorded statements.

Saturn in Sagittarius, Mercury and Sun in Aquarius may have a better influence but they are not so powerful to limit the T-square described above. Don’t forget about eclipses that are formed this month, most of the times eclipses are dealing with sudden events. Leo and Pisces natives are on the target. We still may have good news because these eclipses are part of a good family – Saros 140 or Saros 19 South – and they may bring nice surprises, change in better way of native’s lives and to be able to find solutions to any crises. Do not forget that any crises brings opportunities! Be brave and be bold! This is your time!


Jupiter in Libra is in retrograde station on 5th and 6th of February, and terms of changes in the direction of the planet’s motion can increase the degree of instability. Then between 7th of February and 9th of June Jupiter is in retrograde period and invites you to work more for what you need to accomplish because external help is going into a vacation, this means that you should be more flexible and use your skills to be able to change yourself. If you travel, try to be more organized! This transit is important for Sagittarius and Pisces natives and for the signs where the planet goes retrograde (Libra).

Do not forget the following meanings:

Direct moving – the best moment for action, the energy of the planet is good;

Retrograde station – not good, do not start any important action in this period;

Retrograde moving – do not act, try to relax and observe the reality, it is better to (re)think your actions and your strategies;

Second station, before direct period – the events is going in good direction;

On 19th February, the SUN ingress in PISCES: Happy Birthday for all natives! 

MOON PHASES (at Greenwich local time):

FULL MOON in LEO on 11th of February at 00:32: With this occasion we have also a PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE with visibility in Europe, much of Asia, Africa, much of North America, much of South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic and Antarctica.

NEW MOON IN PISCES on 26th of February at 14:58: With this occasion we have also a ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE with visibility in South/West Africa, South/West South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Antarctica.

MERCURY transits:

Between 7th and 26th of February MERCURY goes trough AQUARIUS: You are full of original and unique ideas. You enjoy exchanging ideas with other people, particularly friends and groups of people. You are may become rebel against old and traditional ideas. Write down your ideas and try to put them in practice!

Between 26th of February and 13th of March MERCURY goes trough PISCES: You are highly intuitive with a good imagination. You have the ability to tune into other people’s thoughts. You may have difficulty distinguishing reality from fantasy. You may experience periods where you seem to disappear into a dream world before being jolted back to reality. Write down your dreams!

VENUS transits:

Until 3rd of February VENUS is in PISCES:  you want to feel everything, in a big scale, to be one with Universe. Are you able to do this? Everybody seems perfect for you. Your reality is perfect. This is what you want to see? Think again!

Because Venus will have a long retrograde period in Aries and Pisces during 2017, this could affect cooperation and all peace agreements. And the Pisces’ governor is Jupiter. Jupiter in Libra, the symbol of harmony and good relations is attacked by Uranus and Pluto. Only Saturn is able to save situation by finding solutions for any problems. During this month, you will feel the first signs of near future waves of Venus retrograde periods. Pay attention for Pisces and Aries signs.

Important note: In all my astrological research and interpretations I use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history. When I am writing about aspects between planets, I use aspect from sign to sign; I am using a traditional way of interpretation of aspects. An aspect is not a must to be at perfect orb to have an effect. It is enough if we have a planet in a sign that forms an aspect with another planet from another sign. The most powerful aspects are: conjunctions, oppositions, squares and trines.

*) If you do not know yet your Ascendant you may find it very easy by using any other free astrology website or software that you can find on internet. For this calculation you need: day, month, year, location, hour and minutes of your birth. If you have possibility try to use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history.
