New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aquarius
“Heart in Hand” painting by Priscilla Marden
Welcome to this very consequential New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aquarius, rich with various levels of meaning and possibility.
First, it is a Partial Solar Eclipse visible in the South America, complementing the recent Total Lunar Eclipse we witnessed two weeks ago in Northern America. These two Eclipses energetically provide a cosmic bridge that further integrates the different wisdom lineages unique to each continent. This shift will trickle down into our human actions as we fulfill the great prophecies of that have existed for centuries about the linking together of the unique gifts of the Southern and Northern Hemispheres of Gaia, Planet Earth.
In addition, we now bring to fruition the dynamism and forward momentum that began with of the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 . I quote my friend and sidereal colleague, Nick Anthony Fiorenza, from his Lunar Planner: “This Partial Solar Eclipse…compliments the previous Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 conjoining Regulus of Leo and occurring under the auspices of the Head of the Lion. That eclipse cycle was about establishing self-autonomy and integrity in leadership, and this eclipse cycle is about applying wisdom gained through that cycle into a humanitarian societal expression, to elevate the social collective.” That’s great news, don’t you think? Hearts are opening, the collective tide is turning toward greater compassion and caring for all, yet still we have decades of work ahead of us. Keep the faith. Be the Light.
It’s Chinese New Year, too, initiating the Year of the Earth Dog. Here are few key potentialities ~ Dogs generally are and signify loyalty and being in service to others. It’s a wise idea to share the bounty of your time, resources, and wisdom generously with others which also brings greater prosperity to you in return. It is a year of building things, restoring things, taking your physical foundation to the next level, given the influence of the stabilizing, manifesting element of Earth. The kindness and helpfulness of the Earth Dog energy will further open human hearts to mirror that same kindness and caring for all, part of our divine mission as humans living on Earth.
Now, on to the planetary specifics of this New Moon. In February each year, our Sun blessedly transits futuristic, community-minded, original, creative-thinking-outside-the-current-social-mindsets, sign of Aquarius. This annual global imprinting on Earth promises to awaken more inclusiveness in our rainbow diversity of humanity, through social movements, unfathomable tragedies, individual shifts. This year the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Juno all meet up in sidereal Aquarius. quickening the pace of mental shifts. Also, Juno signifies relationships, exploring and aligning in exciting partnerships will be a key part of 2018.
Also, during this two-week period, an extremely focused, action oriented Mars/Vesta conjunction in power-driven Scorpio is getting closer and closer to an exact crossing on February 25. This is sure to bring political inquiries and dramas to the surface, mirrored in the continued re-balancing of all financial markets, as well as other unforeseen events that are sure to rock our world. Keep calm. Be the Light.

New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aquarius
“Lotus Heart Mandala” painting by Priscilla Marden
Here is a list of New Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza from LunarPlanner:
“Beginning the Sprouting Phase of the Lunar Cycle, a new theme emerges, a new idea or concept sprouts forth. This is an inner message, an impulse expressing from a field of all possibilities deep within the unconscious mind. Often this process is one of discovery, slowly revealing a simple theme over a day or two, or it may be quite clear and specific, even suggesting a major life change. The New Moon is a perfect time for meditation or a quite walk—to go within self and listen.”
Thu February 15
New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aquarius: Sun/Moon/Juno/Mercury in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries: Please note that the energetic imprint of a New Moon on our planet carries information about what the following four weeks will be. In February each year, our Sun blessedly transits futuristic, community-minded, original, creative-thinking-outside-the-current-social-mindsets, sign of Aquarius. This annual global imprinting on Earth promises to awaken more inclusiveness in our rainbow diversity of humanity, through social movements, unfathomable tragedies, individual shifts.
In this SolLunar Cycle, both Sun and Moon exactly link with Juno, the asteroid of significant relationships, so it will be a good time to concentrate on your core partnerships in the coming four weeks, reconnecting or reimagining some, leaving others, or embarking on a new journey of connecting. Messenger Mercury brings a flurry of communication and signifies the information you need is directly in front of you if you pay attention. Focusing the power of visionary group mind through expansive social activism will occur, taking movements to a whole new level. Lastly, the electric sextile to Uranus will make surprising connections or breakthroughs if you are open and make yourself available.
Fri February 16
Moon/Venus/Neptune in Aquarius: This cosmic gathering of intuitive Moon, creative Venus, and inspired Neptune provides a download of inspiration, supportive communication, overall harmony. It’s like Valentine’s Day, Love Day, Part 2. The collective heart of compassion is opening and expanding further and farther, blanketing planet Earth. Be the change. Spread the love and cooperation all around.
Moon/Neptune in Aquarius square Mars/Vesta in Scorpio: This more challenging aspect happens later in the evening and can create tension within you or around you. This can bring up anger about the callousness and lack of empathy for suffering that some humans in power are currently demonstrating. It is truly breathtaking, heartbreaking. All this will take time to correct, to bring back into balance. Don’t lose faith, be the Light.
Sat February 17
Sun/Mercury conjunction in Aquarius: Ideas or insights pop in from another dimension, providing the answer to your question. That’s part of this early morning gift. Aquarius is linked to a future YOU that has already manifested your dream in a parallel reality (this is not just the stuff of science fiction, it is real!). This once-a-year alignment can bring a message from your future self, if you are interested in such things.
Mars in Scorpio square Neptune in Aquarius: This aspect is determined and driven to get to the bottom of some issue. Focus on how you will financially support a current creative project or do more research today. False prophets are thankfully exposed.
Sun February 18
Moon/Chiron in Pisces trine Ceres in Cancer: This ever-changing aspect that flows through today can make you more emotional in general, even teary, nostalgic, intuitive, non-verbal. Spend time near or immersed in watery environments.
Mon February 19
Water Grand Trine: Moon in Pisces/Mars in Scorpio/ North Lunar Node in Cancer: Yesterday’s flowing waters theme is still in play, but today’s harmonious water triangle is less about grieving the past and more about feeling emotionally supported. It’s easy to follow through on intuitions and hunches.
Tue February 20
Moon/Uranus conjunction in Aries sextile Sun/Mercury/Juno in Aquarius: Today’s triggering Moon/Uranus meet-up in initiating Aries brings directness to all your conversations, and provides the necessary courage to initiate a conversation with a potential new love or partner. You may spontaneously go for a walk with a friend between work sessions, suddenly shift gears in a new direction, change up a habit you’ve wanted to shift.
Wed February 21
Venus/Neptune conjunction in sidereal Aquarius: This is Love Day, Part 3. Both these planets are considered to be the divine messengers of love, art, kindness, beauty, imagination.

Take full advantage of this energy by engaging fully with your right-brain, allow visionary dreams, hopeful possibilities to engulf you. Take that wellness day you deserve and gift yourself some form of self-care.
Moon/Pallas Athene conjunction in Aries: This aspect amplifies today’s exceptionally strong energy of boundless creativity and new ideas taking shape.

Thu February 22
Ceres in Cancer quincunx Saturn in sidereal Sagittarius: Use this aspect to envision shifts that need to happen in regards to your home front. You might find yourself shifting the furniture around as you imagine a new floor plan that works better, flows better.

Moon in Taurus square Juno in Aquarius: With squares to the stubborn Taurus Moon over the next two days, heads can butt, conversations around finances might need to happen between partners, including who will pay the bill.

First Quarter Moon
“Snowy Owl Mandala” painting by Priscilla Marden
Here’s a list of the First Quarter Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza ~ www.lunarplanner.com
“The First Quarter Moon of each lunar cycle draws an external stimulus to initiate action as we move from the inspirational quarter of the lunar cycle into the action quarter. Now is the time to drop all hesitation and take the steps to move forth on what you were inspired about…it is time to now participate in trust and knowing. Trust in the process. Demonstrate this trust in physical action and you will be supported. This time is stressful or traumatic only if action is ignored. Simply, this phase is a time to work.”
Fri February 23
Moon in Taurus square Sun/Mercury/Neptune in Aquarius: I repeat what I wrote yesterday as things further intensify ~ With squares to the stubborn Taurus Moon, heads can butt, conversations around finances might need to happen between partners, including who will pay the bill. Bankers, realtors and all forms of body workers might be busier than usual due to last minute stressful calls from clients. In addition, the influence of Neptune can highlight deceptions or denials, despite facts emerging. Square aspects require we make conscious choices when faced with a crisis or unsettling piece of news. Steer clear of fear and refocus the power of your mind (Mercury) and your imagination (Neptune) to regain belief and trust things will work out.
Sat February 24
Venus in Aquarius square Mars/Vesta in Scorpio: This aspect pressures many people to take to the streets, on the march for causes of compassion and caring for all (Venus in Aquarius) in the face of appalling greed and power grabs (Mars/Vesta in Scorpio). You may decide it’s time to shift where/how you are investing your money and resources.
Moon in Gemini square Chiron in Pisces: Numerous healing conversations are taking place under this aspect. People are more readily able to spill the beans on what’s bothering them, or share a secret suffering they have endured.
Sun February 25
Mars/Vesta conjunction in sidereal Scorpio: This super-secretive, super-driven, super-controlling, super-focused aspect comes to a head today and brings to the surface hidden truths, desires, manipulations, passions. It’s full-blown drama or full-blown honesty. The tip of a very deep iceberg becomes exposed or revealed in the coming days. You can channel this power positively by feeling how committed and focused you are to making certain things happen or align in your life. Go for the gold of what you want and who you are. You are a Living Master living your Mastery. You really are.
Mercury/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius: This imaginative, space-cadet aspect happens right at sunrise. You may wake from an wild dream with life-changing information, or have a feeling of being out of body. Best to ground yourself before you get behind the wheel or exercise, so as to avoid injury.
Sun in Aquarius sextile Saturn in Sagittarius: This sunny aspect supports team efforts that are highly successful today. Build something with a friend or partner, or co-intention with a beloved. By sharing intentions of what each of you needs and desires, you strengthen and accelerate the field of manifestation.
Moon in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius: These astrological signs love to travel, share information, communicate. This aspect helps hammer out the details of the overall plan of what you want to accomplish, sorting through what might work from what won’t. This mental busyness stays humming overnight, just a warning.
Mon February 26
Moon in Gemini opposite Pluto in Sagittarius: This aspect happens in the early morning hours of today and could create a tossing, turbulent night of sleep as too many thoughts flood your mind. You might decide to get up, read, write or work given this mentally stimulating energy.

Tue February 27
Moon/Ceres/North Lunar Node conjunction in Cancer: This mother-love, cuddly, craving comfort-food conjunction calls forth your need to nurture others with a yummy meal or seek care for yourself. The link to the future-is-calling North Lunar Node can mean your tastes and desires are changing as you leave behind habits/relationships that are no longer nurturing. That can be scary to the security-oriented Cancer Moon so some tears may flow as you grieve the release of the past.
Pallas Athene in sidereal Aries square Lunar Nodes: A creative project comes to completion or you may need to shift gears/designs to make things work better.
Wed February 28
Mercury in Aquarius square Mars/Vesta in Scorpio: Mercury ‘s current transit to future-seeing, inventive, eccentric Aquarius opens people’s minds or can spark anti-social activities. The desire for free-thinking, A FREE PRESS, is pitted against Scorpio’s need to control the message and the messenger. Also, this aspect may manifest as another wave of volatile shifts around financial investors/investments.
Moon in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra: Being more vulnerable or emotional negotiations with those near and dear are options with this aspect, along with making decisions concerning family business.
Moon in Leo opposite Juno in Aquarius: Tonight the Moon in Leo makes an opposition to Juno in Aquarius, leading some to stay up later, socially connecting. Tomorrow’s playful Full Moon in sidereal Leo will be exact at moonrise tomorrow night.
