On FEBRUARY, you have the following main configurations: 

Mars in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces form a square, the exact aspect happens on February 17, but its effects reach out throughout the month: some actions are wrong, and irrational; events with full of lies, betrayal, alcohol, drugs, adultery, corruption, intrigue, frauds, and secrets that will cause a big stir. It is a mixture between true and lie, see what is happened lately all over the world with fake news. Fanatic actions linked with system of beliefs.
Also, some destructions linked with fluids (gas, steam, oil, water, and other liquids), chemicals, and plastics, water pollution, maritime accidents, and more deaths through drowning.

On February 18th, the SUN ingress in PISCES: Happy Birthday for all natives!

Unpredictable events should occur this month because of Sun, Mercury and Venus are transiting Aquarius and Partial Solar Eclipse also in Aquarius – sign that can behave unexpectedly – and because in the middle of the month there’s a solar eclipse in Aquarius.

RETROGRADE PLANET: no planet is retrograde this month.

MOON PHASES (New York time, USA):

NEW MOON in AQUARIUS on February 15, on 16:05 and The Partial Solar Eclipse: The Partial Solar Eclipse of February 15 is part of the Saros 150 family of eclipses, one that has a high degree of creativity, characterized by promoting new ideas supported through optimism and enthusiasm, that can lead to positive changes if well-coordinated. The solar eclipse has to do with information, communication, and travel. It can be favourable to events that trigger strong, passionate reactions related to family, home, properties, roots, traditions, homeland, national identity. Regions seeing, at least, a partial eclipse: South in South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Antarctica.

This Aquarius New Moon presents a great opportunity to transform your thinking and renew your visionary powers. You can gain clarity about where you want to go and what blocks you from getting there. A solar eclipse, especially when connected with the South Node, requires you to let go of something to make space for the new. And the New Moon’s square to Jupiter in Scorpio amplifies its transformational potential and new solutions become available.

The Aquarius New Moon also marks the Chinese New Year, initiating the year of the Earth Dog. This next year favors new business ventures and major lifestyle changes, and rewards loyalty, generosity, and selflessness.

Power dynamics may also be more visible during this transit, with some people perhaps wanting to create large displays of their power and influence. The most challenging manifestation of this transit can be fears that tend to multiply. In the darkness, shadows loom larger than life beneath Jupiter’s magnifying influence. Positively expressed, wise Jupiter seeks to understand the complexes that lie in the deepest reaches of the psyche. He knows that great treasures are buried in these mysterious catacombs.

SATURN is already in CAPRICORN, until March 21st, 2020: Saturn is dignified and functioning well. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those of Your career choices that don’t accurately reflect Your authentic selves.

Rewards come from putting in the effort. You might also be striving for more authority in an area of your lives now. Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth and it tests your weak areas that need strengthening.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 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.

I wish you the best transits!
