February 18 to 24
Mars trine Uranus

February 18 to March 2
Sun sextile Mars

Jupiter sextile Neptune
(17° Capricorn/Pisces)

This is a lovely aspect for
dreamers.  Jupiter is usually more
prosaic and sensible when it’s in
Capricorn, but the sextile to Neptune
opens the door to flights of fancy.  

Both Jupiter and Neptune tend to
exaggerate, to inflate, but since this
is a harmonious aspect, there isn’t
much damage done during this
transit.  You’re more idealistic, and
you can conceive of a better world.  
You may even be able to figure out
how to make it happen.  Your more
cynical side is temporarily in
abeyance while you work out a
plausible path to Utopia.

You may not get everything you
want, but you’ll likely have some
wonderful experiences.  It’s never a
bad thing to move towards whatever
makes your heart sing.

This transit is particularly good for
progress in the arts, including the
healing arts.  You are able to trust
your intuition, and it takes you
towards beauty, bliss, and
wholeness.  It can also be a time of
spiritual growth, when you feel a
stronger sense of connection to the
cosmos.    

This is noticeable February 8 to
March 4.

February 8 to March 4
Jupiter sextile Neptune

Mars trine Uranus
(3° Capricorn/Taurus)

During this transit, you can take a
new direction, and move ahead with
confidence.  It’s in earthy signs, and
so it’s best for work that’s concrete
and precise.  You want to do
something definite, with results that
you can see or touch.  And you want
to do it in a way that’s all your own.

This increases your ability to
organize and strategize.  It adds to
your ambition, your urge to do
something important.  You want to be
an agent of change, in a measurable,
clearly definable way.

At the same time, you’re not rigid in
your organizational methods, but
rather experimental, open to creative
inspiration.  You’re thinking about the
results you want, and you don’t get
hung up on a particular way of
reaching those results.  The usual
approaches are a bit boring, and you
feel strongly that it’s time to try
something new.  

This is good for working with
machines, with up-to-the-minute
technology, and with the natural
sciences.  You may need more space
and more fresh air during this time,
and this can stimulate the creative
process.  You can work with others
who have the same vision you have,
but you’re likely to leave behind
anyone who slows you down.   

This is a wonderful time to be a
teacher or a student.  Everyone
learns a lot.  Athletes discover new
ways to train, while business people
come up with revolutionary sales
pitches.  For people working on
social change, there’s more
momentum, with less danger and less
resistance than usual.  Take
advantage of the dynamic energy
and the open minds around you, and
implement some brilliant new ideas.   

This is noticeable February 18 to 24.

The sun sextile Mars
(5° Pisces/Capricorn)

This is very energizing, and it
helps you get things done.  The
sun in Pisces can be a little drifty
and dreamy, but the sextile to
Mars in Capricorn makes for
more ambition, discipline and
practicality. You take your
hopes, dreams and fantasies
and turn them into something
real.  You build a structure that
will last, using all the resources
that you can find around you.   

You’re focused on long-term
goals, and on practical solutions
to problems.  But you also hold
on to your ideals.  Your long-
term goals all rest on a
foundation of peace,
compassion and unity.  You want
everyone to be healthy, happy,
and connected to their own
deeper wisdom, and you
facilitate this, whenever you can.

This is a time of great creativity,
because your imagination flies
freely.  At the same time, you’re
committed to your Muse, and
you make sure that you have
time and space for your creative
work, as well as the tools that
you need.        

This is also a good time for
exercise, especially sports that
are pleasurable and somewhat
contemplative.  Swimming is
good for the sun in Pisces, and
mountain-climbing is good for
Mars in Capricorn.  If you have
fitness goals, you can make
some progress on them, even
though (with Mercury retrograde)
a lot of other projects are
blocked.
