ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY 15- MARCH 1, 2023
Our time is plagued by many tests. The test of meaning and purpose is lost in the in-between. It’s hiding. You might feel like you’re floating in a bubble of energy that has yet to land. Or burst.
Crazy events permeate your world. When someone or something you’ve counted on is not there the way you need them to be, you feel unmoored. Your connection to intimacy and closeness gets frayed.
Pluto at the end of Capricorn makes it’s hard to pretend that things are okay. Pluto at the end of a sign sees the meaning of what you built in the last fourteen years get neutralized.
This includes friendships, commitment, foundations, passion, purpose, and traditions. Edifices like the Court, global bastions of power, civilization, the government and The Church are having a Plutonic reckoning.
Capricorn, ruled by Saturn is having its’ own reality bite. Saturn is hard and brittle, making moves practically, without wiggle room. Capricorn doesn’t allow for error. And Capricorns are feeling every tug of power with what is left that’s faulty and must go. If you feel pushed up against some wall of your own creation, the writing is on the wall.
This next month and most of the year brings experiences of feeling out of control. You experience personally and globally a time when much of the order and meaning you had in your life get undone.
The way to deal with this Plutonic experience is to be patient, live smaller and control rage. Pluto is a wave of destruction as well as the capacity to cut out what is no longer healthy.
Let what is going, go and be grateful for what is left. If what’s happening in your tightly ordered universe is not working, be calm. Find the center and experience a collapse of what’s been too tightly controlled morph into more self trust.
The way to walk through this time is to view what is not going according to plan neutrally. Let go of the serious heavy-osity of the attachment. If you’ve entertained a crazy stratagem, look at things from a different and new point of view.
What is not working the way you want it to work seems insulting or unloving or compulsive. It won’t work when you jam harder. You need to be less tightly wound.
The president has several tests of power and falls down. The government has more blows to the constitution and throws their hands up. Random and illogical violence goes looking for the court in some form. Weather and climate strikes back with more earth events and extremes.
Pluto is on a rampage and strikes out against things that were supposed to be forever and are revealed as just another cycle that moves on from infinity. Saturn is at the end of Aquarius. This brings issues of past responsibility that need attention.
Where you’ve shirked comes at you between now and March 7. Pisces is a confusing sign due to Neptune’s rulership. In Pisces, confusion and doubt supplants logic and reason. Be aware of what happens between February 19 and March 7 to see illusion in action.
The upcoming two weeks act as a prophecy of the next two and a half years. The New Moon on February 19 highlights where and what you need to pay attention to. The beginning of a sign shows the future. Saturn enters Pisces on March 7. The Pisces New Moon conjoins Saturn in its’ transitional phase. Be attentive to what you’re being shown.
(Special note to Pisces, whatever you’ve been doing or not doing will be tested shortly. Where you have Pisces on your chart goes through a correction in the next two and a half years.)
During Saturn in Pisces, water will be a big player with the dividing lines of the country and world redrawn. Not enough water and too much water become Biblically compelling.
Religions and cults spring up. Outlandish things and obvious scams like George Santos pass as normal. Pain is addressed through a different treatment than opioids. Spirituality and counterfeit spirituality vie for support as many dubious prophets and soothsayers spring up on every corner of the internet.
The pod at home becomes the center of life when the Grail we believe in is revealed as a mirage. Digital identity and experience become more intrinsic to life than living.
When the world takes on a more surreal texture, go with the flow. Don’t look back to the good ole days. The future is predicated on what happens February 19-March 7. Be wise and watch from a higher place.
