Astrological forecast of February 2019
The year of the Earth Pig starts on February5, 2019 with the Chinese New Year!
The shortest month of the year brings a strong and inspiring Aquarian energy of social renewal, tolerance, liberation and creative self-expression.
A month of clearance in order to create room for what’s to come.
On February 2, 2019, Imbolc is celebrated. The festival of Fire and Light symbolizes the Transition from Winter to Spring. Out of the Dark, the Light returns.
A time of purification and cleansing at the beginning of a new phase of growth.
At the beginning of February 2019, however, tensions are running high.
Uranus “has re-awakened” since January 6, 2019 at the last degrees of Aries.
The peak of the revolutionary Square between Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries is now over, but its shadow period is still relevant, causing upheaval and turmoil.
All over the world we hear the call for freedom, equality and justice.
These are the final stages of Pluto square Uranus that has drastically changed the world since 2008. It has led to great restructuring and reorganization in our personal lives and in the world as a whole.
The red Warrior Mars in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn and the Node in Cancer have formed a T-Square. This planetary “pressure vessel” is exact on February 2, 2019.
Mars square Pluto square the Node in Cancer leads to power struggles and confrontations with the intention to dominate or control certain situations.
This transit challenges us to push boundaries in order to achieve goals, but can also lead to confrontations, aggressiveness, abuse of power, threats, jealousy and underhanded tactics where matters of safety are concerned. In world politics there can be an imminent conflict, muscle flexing and power struggle.
The volatile and challenging energy of this T-Square continues until February 14, 2019.
In the first half of February 2019, red warrior Mars is getting closer to Uranus in Aries.
An exact conjunction with Uranus in Aries will be build at 29º on 13 and February 14, 2019.
Mars is the ruler of Aries and provides Uranus in Aries with extra power.
On planet Earth, this fiery tango leads to a strong urge to escape from limiting situations.
Risks are being taken, but at the same time opportunities are also missed.
With this energy we want too much and preferably at the same time.
Rules are no longer tolerated or will be violated with this ardent march of revolutionary Uranus and red warrior Mars!
Of course there are bright spots! Saturn in Capricorn forms a hopeful sextile with Neptune in Pisces throughout February 2019. This positive energy characterizes February 2019 with an underlying universal energy of trust and solidarity.
In the first weekend of 2019, Venus in Sagittarius forms a golden Bridge with Uranus in Aries.
This Trine in Fire on February 3, 2019 is exact at 28º on the axis Sagittarius/Aries and brings the urge to be free and try something new in life. We are attracted to everything and everyone new and exciting. It won’t be easy to avoid pitfalls of temptation that are not always obvious.
On February 4, 2019 the Sun and the Moon will merge and form the New Moon in the air sign of Aquarius. With this New Moon at 15º Aquarius, future-oriented thinking takes place when it comes to crisis management and solving social, ecological, scientific and technological issues. Everything that fascinates us, all new and innovative is highly attractive to us.

On February 4, 2019, the lovely Venus enters the earthly empire of Capricorn.
Saturn in Capricorn is looking forward to the arrival of Venus, so that ideas and views for the future will prove valuable. The exact conjunction of Venus and Saturn in Capricorn is exact on February 18, 2019, but this influence will last until the beginning of March 2019.
Venus in Capricorn only wants meaningful commitments.
Venus wants material status and wealth, everything that is good and beautiful and in Capricorn Venus gives us the determination to make it happen. However, with Venus in Capricorn we also want to hold on to our possessions. This translates into greed, pettiness, jealousy and an excessive urge to preserve personal property and material goods.
Until March 1, 2019 the journey of Venus through the pragmatic Capricorn allows us the opportunity to see situations for what they really are, gives the determination to make things real or find a good solution.
In the meantime, Pluto is taking a position in Capricorn on the Node in Cancer.
Cancer symbolizes the Mother, the inner world, security and protection and Capricorn symbolizes the Father, the outside world, career and status.
At the end of March 2019 and the beginning of April 2019, this opposition is exact at 23º on the Cancer/Capricorn axis, but this influence will be clearly felt in February 2019.
In addition to an intense desire for freedom and justice, also loneliness, power and abuse of power and the gap between rich and poor will be important themes this month.
The last time this opposition took place was eighteen years ago, from April 10, 2000 to October 31, 2001 or further back from September 25, 1981 to March 16, 1983 or from December 24, 1962 to August, 25 1964.
So these patterns are repeating sequentially and can again play a major role.
From February 11, 2019, our swift messenger Mercury rushes into the water sign of Pisces and falls into the arms of Neptune and Chiron. Here in Pisces, Mercury is less logical, but more emotional and emphatic. Mercury in Pisces, however this energy means "wishful thinking" and would rather just shoves stuff aside, out of sight. Therefore, the second half of February 2019 is all about a distorted picture of reality.
On February 13, 2019 the exact conjunction between Mars and Uranus takes place at 29º in fiery Aries.
With this volatile energy, this day could be very challenging.
This revolutionary energy creates sudden, unexpected events that could lead to new ideas and insights enabling existing plans and goals to take a different turn.
In the meantime, Mars is bidding farewell to its own fiery empire of Aries and is preparing to enter the earthly zodiac sign of Taurus. However, Mars remains close to Uranus, so this fiery influence will continue to exist for the time being.
Traditional Taurus slows down the enthusiastic, fiery and decisive energy of Mars a little, but it does bring great determination and shows clear choices.
From February 15, 2019 to March 31, 2019 we see with Mars in the financial earth sign of Taurus a more creative energy which focuses on growth and concrete results.
Valentine's Day 2019 can be complicated.
Venus is almost conjunct Saturn in Capricorn and retrograde asteroid Pallas Athena in the sign of Libra can indicate problems in solving social and international conflicts, but especially in love relationships. Venus conjunct Saturn in Capricorn can feel lonely or create an emotional distance.
Not everything is forgiven and forgotten.
Unhappiness due to infidelity are karmic lessons that will lead to more mutual understanding.
It is possible that there are financial problems and unexpected tears may flow.
On February 19, 2019 the Sun enters the water sign of Pisces and the Full Super Moon also takes place at 0º in earthly Virgo.
The second Full Super Moon of 2019 is relatively "close" to the Earth and is therefore larger and brighter than usual.
With this Full Moon, however, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will join forces for the last time to form a square aspect.
As a result of the radical and extreme changes due to the influence of Uranus square Pluto, fear has been given a breeding ground. The Full Moon brings frustrations to the surface to correct the undesirable state of affairs, such as oppression and inequality in relationships where the woman is subordinate to the man or where the citizen is belittled from above by rules and laws.
It is about regaining the dignity of the individual and regaining the fundamental rights of man.

The end of February 2019 is characterized by an optimistic, inspiring and positive energy!
In astrology, asteroid Chiron symbolizes the deepest wound in the individual and collective soul.
At the end of February 2019, the Wounded Healer Chiron begins its long journey through the fiery realm of Aries.
The transit of Chiron through Aries has extra meaning, because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. This is associated with birth and development of the individual personality.
Chiron thus begins a new cycle of healing.
Until the spring of 2027, we will see radical changes in health care and breakthroughs in medical science and medical technology such as new holistic therapies involving an emotional and physical level.
With Chiron in Aries, it is also about freedom to make your own independent choices, for example in voluntary euthanasia.
From 2010, Chiron traveled through Pisces, so we are dealing with a significant shift from Water to Fire. Chiron in Pisces was a period of spiritual growth and spiritual awakening.
Chiron in Pisces also had a downside. Martyrdom, dependence, confusion, psychosis, drug addiction and new forms of addiction, such as addiction to technology and social media.
At a global level, in the next ten years, Chiron in Aries is about healing the ego and self-esteem. Chiron in Aries is a period of self-realization and a new understanding of who we are and our purpose on this earth.
The fundamental question will be: "Who am I"?
Under the influence of Chiron in Aries, we have to (re)discover our self-healing power.
Chiron in Aries is the fiery force that will help us all to find our inner strength and inner Warrior.
The universe sends us fiery healing energy.
In the run-up to the key year 2020, we are on the eve of a new era.
We find the strength and courage to forgive others and ourselves.
Because forgiveness is the first step towards healing.
A beautiful month of February to you all!
