February 2009 Forecast

“Start the revolution” is the motto for February as an impressive lineup of Aquarius placements propel us toward change. It’s all about self-expression and eliminating restrictions that hold you back from moving forward. The Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Neptune transiting through this innovative Air sign energize socializing, philanthropy, technology, science and the quest for freedom and enlightenment.

Such a powerful concentration of Aquarius placements is sure to shake things up a bit. Adding to the chaotic vibe is the Saturn-Uranus opposition throughout February, which seeks to break down the status quo to make way for innovation. This influence will accelerate the ongoing eruptions in the business world and financial markets. On a personal level, you may suddenly get the urge to transform some part of your life, but you may also be prone to overacting to stressful situations, especially if you have Sun or ascendant in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces. Whatever your sign, it’s time to do some soul-searching about where you’re stuck and take some steps to remove the blocks to your personal growth.
