« Hear and browse present notes right here

Whats up Invisible Good friend, April right here, and the date at the moment is February twelfth, 2024. Welcome to Episode 221 of the Huge Sky Astrology Podcast. for listening to the Huge Sky Astrology Podcast.

This week, we enter peak Aquarius as Venus and Mars be part of the Solar, Mercury and Pluto in that signal, and instantly make conjunctions with Pluto; a feisty Taurus First Quarter Moon; Mercury squares Uranus; and the week ends with the start of the Solar’s Pisces season. Plus, I reply a listener query about how one can reconcile conflicting details about which home of the chart a planet is in.

Mars enters Aquarius (Feb. 12, 2024, 10:05 pm PST)

Mars enters Aquarius on February twelfth at 10:05 pm Pacific Time. It’ll be in that signal via March twenty second. Transits of Mars present us how and what to work and battle for. Whereas it’s an Aquarius, don’t be afraid to be just a little bit stunning or controversial. Take your work, which is dominated by Mars, in a brand new course. Converse up about your convictions.

There are such a lot of attention-grabbing and essential people who have been born with Mars on this signal. Chess champion Bobby Fischer, Giuseppe Verde, John Belushi, John Cleese, astrologer Stephen Forrest, Tennessee Williams, Maya Angelou. And people people who find themselves just a little bit stunning or scandalous: Hugh Hefner, Truman Capote. Aquarius is usually a really political signal, and people with Mars in Aquarius can actually get individuals upset. Jane Fonda, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh. It’s additionally a particularly charismatic mixture, and assume solely of celebrities Cary Grant and Farrah Fawcett, born with Mars on this signal.

Aquarius is distinctive and strange. It’s not like anyone else. And when Mars is on this signal, freedom, equality, and independence are among the many issues that we actually need to work towards and battle for. Take some inspiration from a few of these Mars in Aquarius people. And I feel what all of them share in widespread is a particular individuality and in lots of circumstances, being unafraid to ruffle feathers with a purpose to get their level throughout.

Mars conjunct Pluto (Feb. 13, 2024, 10:06 pm PST)

Nearly precisely 24 hours later, Mars makes a conjunction with Pluto in Aquarius, on February thirteenth at 10:06 pm Pacific Time, at 0º46’ Aquarius, on the Sabian image, An previous adobe mission. When Mars comes along with Pluto, it’s the irresistible power assembly the immovable object. Our most radical impulses are fired up, and we actually have to withstand making an attempt to impose our opinions onto others. It’s a fantastic line between combating for what we predict is essential and making an attempt to power others to imagine the identical issues. It’s a warning, as I’ve stated earlier than, of this explicit Sabian image. Whereas it’s an attractive picture in some ways, an previous adobe mission, the mission system right here in California, and related techniques, I’m positive, all over the world, have been based mostly on taking faith to native individuals and forcing them to let go of their very own beliefs, their native beliefs, and adopting a brand new faith.

Now if what you’re combating for is in tune with the zeitgeist, if the entire world appears to be shouting in unison the same message to yours, Pluto will help you progress mountains, however we’ve to be so cautious with this mix. It’s like strolling round with plutonium, and our efforts, if they don’t seem to be for the best good of all, can backfire on us.

Mars is such a bodily planet, too, that when it’s together with Pluto, I wish to suggest a number of bodily train. And being just a little bit cautious to not overdo it, as a result of when any planet is along with Pluto, there’s an inclination to overdo it. However Mars wants some sort of method to categorical itself in order that it doesn’t implode from this strain of Pluto.

Taurus First Quarter Moon (Feb. 16, 2024, 7:01 am PST)

And now for the Moon Report and it begins with the Taurus First Quarter Moon, on February sixteenth at 7:01 am Pacific Time at 27º25’ Taurus and Aquarius. The First Quarter Part is the second within the Lunar Cycle the place motion is known as for. If there’s something that you simply envisioned on the Aquarius New Moon, that is the second within the lunar cycle the place you’re referred to as to take some sort of step within the course of reaching for that purpose.

The Sabian image for this First Quarter Moon is, A lady pursued by mature romance. It makes me consider a lady in her later years who’s residing fortunately alone, having fun with her life, however alongside comes a really passionate and dedicated suitor. It sounds sort of pretty, this chance for love and companionship later in life, however it could additionally imply risking the concord of her contented single life. So many planets in Aquarius this week level to a chance for change. However this First Quarter Moon in Taurus symbolizes the inertia and want for consolation that we’ve to beat with a purpose to make the most of these alternatives.

Lunar Part Household Cycle

That is the First Quarter Moon in a Lunar Part Household Cycle that started on Might nineteenth, 2023, on the New Moon at 28º25’ Taurus. That New Moon level was in good relationship to Mars, Neptune, and Pluto. The Sabian image for the New Moon level was 29 Taurus, Two cobblers working at a desk. And the start of this Lunar Part Household Cycle appears to vow a three-year journey of studying to work with others who do related work that we do. And that moreover, this could deliver terrific alternatives to do extra work, to be extra impressed, and to attach with one thing bigger than ourselves.

That is the First Quarter in that bigger Lunar Part Household Cycle. It is a time to succeed in out, to collaborate, or simply to attach with different individuals who do the identical stuff you do. The Full Moon on this Lunar Part Household Cycle on November fifteenth, 2024, is a time we start to see, get a greater and clearer image, of the chances that have been set into movement at that Might 2023 New Moon. After which on the Final Quarter on this cycle, on August fifteenth, 2025, we resolve whether or not we will proceed on with this collaboration, or whether or not it’s actually gone so far as we want it to go.

Void-of-Course Moon Intervals

Let’s take a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week.

On February twelfth, the Moon in Pisces makes a sextile facet to Mars in Capricorn at 4:31 am Pacific Time. It’s void-of-course for nearly one hour after which enters Aries at 5:26 am. Sextile elements deliver a chance and the chance right here is to place our creativeness to work and to make our desires a actuality. The Moon in Pisces is sweet at imagining issues. Mars in Capricorn is sweet at getting issues achieved. However right here we’ve an opportunity to deliver these two collectively. Som when you’ve got a behavior of focusing completely on both that imaginative facet of issues, dreaming what might be, or simply working actually onerous time and again, virtually like a hamster on a wheel – right here is the possibility, through the brief Void-of-Course interval, to consider methods that you would be able to make a brand new behavior of mixing these two.

On February 14th, Valentine’s Day, we’ve a Moon in Aries sq. Venus in Capricorn, at 2:20 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course then for just below 5 hours, then enters Taurus at 7:02 am. There’s a battle once we see a sq. and right here, we should always take a look at any relationship patterns the place our tendency to be rash, impulsive, and perhaps even quarrelsome, are in battle, having a critical and secure relationship.

On February sixteenth, the Moon in Taurus squares the Solar in Aquarius at 7:01 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about 4 and a half hours after which enters Gemini at 11:39 am. The battle on this sq., it’s the Final Quarter Moon, and it’s ushering in a Void-of-Course interval that’s actually good for reviewing how your want for safety and stability could also be holding you again from making a future that you simply would like to see for your self.

And on February 18th, the Moon in Gemini trines the Solar at 7:21 pm Pacific Time, Void-of-Course for under 4 minutes earlier than it enters Most cancers at 7:25 pm. It is a reward facet. I want it might be just a little longer than 4 minutes, however it’s a tiny little Void-of-Course interval, however it’s lengthy sufficient to pause and make an intention about staying versatile and open-minded. And if you’re within the behavior of holding quick to your concepts and never being keen to hearken to different factors of view, that’s a great behavior to do away with and to begin to domesticate extra open-mindedness.

Venus enters Aquarius (Feb. 16, 2024, 8:05 am PST)

On February sixteenth at 8:05 am Pacific Time, Venus enters Aquarius. It’ll be within the signal via March eleventh, and this begins a sort of tremendous Aquarius interval when we’ve 5 planets in Aquarius via February 18th.

Planets in Aquarius have a shine to them. In case you have a planet or planets in Aquarius in your delivery chart, you’re most likely unusually gifted within the methods of that planet and in addition just a little bit rebellious. And Aquarius can also be an indication that can are inclined to get us observed. Whereas Venus is in Aquarius, put further sources – Venus – behind your inventive items and your humanitarian values and see when you can deliver the 2 collectively. In case you are an artist, this can be a terrific time to be speaking concerning the causes pricey to your coronary heart. Consider the people who’ve proven such brilliance within the arts who have been born with Venus in Aquarius: Mozart, Cezanne, Matisse, Ansel Adams, Phil Spector, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, James Joyce, it goes on and on. It’s an enchanting and really charismatic signal for Venus. So, throughout this era, this brief interval between February sixteenth and March eleventh, we’d not all be blessed with the charisma of these born with Venus in Aquarius, however we will attain up and seize just a little little bit of its stardust, and within the ways in which we pursue our livelihood, within the methods we attain out to others to kind private relationships and connections. It is a time once we would possibly be capable to stand out and be observed.

Mercury sq. Uranus (Feb. 16, 2024, 7:52 pm PST)

On February sixteenth at 7:52 pm Pacific Time, Mercury squares Uranus, at 19º16’ Aquarius and Taurus. These are the identical levels because the Solar’s sq. to Uranus final week. The Solar-Uranus story is all the time concerning the methods through which we’re keen to vary, to interrupt out of those self-imposed constrictions of persona that make us imagine we’re one factor and might solely ever be one factor.

However the Solar coming along with Uranus, in fact, modifications our picture of ourselves to an excellent diploma. Whereas Mercury is sq. Uranus, right here’s the chance to inform a distinct story about who we’re, to sort of go public with the modifications that we foresee for ourselves. Mercury is typically related to titles and names, so that you would possibly end up inheriting a distinct title in your work or via a relationship in your life, turning into a mother or father or a grandparent or an uncle or an aunt. It will also be a time that when you don’t actually resonate with the title that you got, that you simply would possibly mess around with different methods of naming your self. Generally that is simply one thing like a web-based deal with on social media. It doesn’t need to be a authorized change of your title, however it is likely to be, when you really feel that who you might be could be very a lot at odds with the factor that folks name you.

Venus conjunct Pluto (Feb. 17, 2024, 00:48 am PST)

Venus makes a conjunction with Pluto on February seventeenth at 12:48 am Pacific Time at 0º51’ Aquarius, and this brings great strain in relationships. It’s only a one-day transit, three if we name within the day earlier than and the day after. A few years in the past on the finish of the 12 months, we had Venus in a conjunction with Pluto 3 times as a result of Venus was retrograde throughout that interval, and I noticed that make a number of actually profound modifications for individuals of their relationships.

This one goes far more shortly and it’s in Aquarius, so the problems which may be arising are about your particular person freedom and id versus the depth, management, and typically jealousy or possessiveness that we will see with Pluto. This will also be a side that refers to monetary strain, and once we really feel beneath a number of strain financially, we will have impulses which might be just a little bit all-or-nothing.

Venus in a conjunction with Pluto can even deliver a sense that we need to divest ourselves of issues. We need to do away with possessions. We need to declutter our houses. We need to do away with all our previous texts and emails. And it’s a great time to do away with issues that we don’t want, however the one recommendation that I might provide whereas Venus is conjunct Pluto is be completely positive that you simply don’t want one thing earlier than you do away with it.

Pluto can deliver extremity, and in our monetary selections, and our relationship selections, this may be a side that may encourage us to make very excessive and everlasting selections that we’d later remorse.

Solar enters Pisces (Feb. 18, 2024, 8:13 pm PST)

Then on February 18th at 8:13 pm Pacific Time, the Solar enters Pisces. It’ll be on this signal via March nineteenth on the Aries equinox. The Solar’s Pisces season is the time of 12 months once we relaxation, mirror, and heal. It’s a bit just like the waning crescent or balsamic lunar part, apart from the Solar. It’s the time to relaxation up and heal bodily in addition to emotionally and spiritually in order that we’ve loads of vitality for the Aries equinox, which is sort of the beginning gate for the brand new 12 months, energetically talking.

And we’re going to need to have the vitality to tackle the brand new challenges that start to name to us on the equinox. As an indication, Pisces shouldn’t be terribly inquisitive about succeeding in an earthly sense. It doesn’t have that targeted ambition of Capricorn and even the willpower to the touch the longer term that Aquarius has. The Solar in Pisces makes us need to really feel as if we’re reaching our non secular potential. That we’ve a robust sense of goal for our place on the planet and what we predict occurs after this world. It’s a beautiful time for a trip or a retreat when you can handle it, only a time to be alone along with your ideas, and perhaps no ideas in any respect.

I all the time affiliate Pisces with dreaming, whether or not it’s the dreaming we do once we’re asleep or daydreams – the place you end up simply sitting and looking a window, and also you notice you’ve been doing that for some time and also you haven’t been considering of something particularly, however your thoughts throughout these occasions is making attention-grabbing connections and serving to you type via the particles that we accumulate in our unconscious as we undergo every day. Pisces is the season for starting to let go of all of that, of what’s not likely mandatory, of what’s weighing us down.

Listener Query: What Home is My Moon In?

On this week’s listener query, listener Amanda O. asks, through Speakpipe:

: I simply have a query about my Moon and what home it truly is in. I’m following a preferred astrology app. I’m additionally doing their workbook and one of many Full Moon reflections was to look the place Leo lies in your chart. Effectively, my Moon is Leo on the third diploma.

Some charts say it’s within the eighth home, some say it’s within the ninth home. I’m simply questioning when you will help me decipher, as an indecisive Libra Solar, how one can higher navigate taking a look at totally different astrology applications and the homes to resolve the place my Moon really lies. I really feel as if it’s extra within the eighth home, particularly simply what I went via, however it’s on the third diploma.

So, simply questioning what your ideas are and when you may simply sort of elaborate extra on totally different astrology methods on deciding what home you truly are for a sure planet. Thanks a lot. I like your present.

April: Amanda, thanks a lot in your query. The rationale your Moon results in totally different homes relying on which app or web site or astrology program you’re utilizing has to do with the home system that’s getting used. And every app, every web site, every astrology program will are inclined to have a distinct default home system.

So which is the appropriate one? I’m going to disappoint you and say that, in my view, there isn’t any proper one. Search for into the sky, you’ll not see traces separating the sky into sections, apart from the road of the horizon.

However, astrologers like to debate what home system to make use of and home techniques are simply totally different strategies for dividing up the sky, and relying on the system that’s used, planets would possibly find yourself in a single home versus one other.

I’ve gone over this situation in a few earlier episodes, however I get variations on this query typically sufficient that I really feel it’s a great one to recap. And apart from, Amanda left her message on SpeakPipe, and I find it irresistible when listeners try this! So I undoubtedly wished to reply her query.

In Episode 129, I answered a query from listener Angela, who puzzled why the Solar in her chart exhibits up in varied totally different homes of the chart. It’s considerably associated to Amanda’s query. I made just a little video to associate with that query. And we’ll hyperlink to each the episode and the video within the present notes. Amanda, right here was my reply to Angela with a slight adaptation in your instance.

Let’s say that the app that you simply’re utilizing is utilizing the Placidus home system by default to calculate your chart. There’s most likely a spot within the settings for the app that can allow you to change this home system if you wish to. However when you go in and discover that, it’ll inform you what system’s getting used. Placidus is the default home system on astro.com and varied different web sites. Let’s say that your ninth home cusp begins at 5 levels Leo. Then the Moon at 3 levels Leo, which in fact is earlier than that, could be within the earlier home, the eighth home. Let’s say you employ a system like Entire Indicators, and that system begins every home at zero levels on the cusp. In that system, your ninth home would have 0 Leo on the cusp, and so 3 Leo, Moon, would fall within the ninth home.

This could be a little complicated, perhaps, to know when you’re simply listening to it, in order that’s why I made that video, that can assist you comply with alongside in a extra visible approach.

In a associated word, in Episode 208, Listener Sandra puzzled whether or not it’s okay to make use of a couple of home system whenever you’re studying about your chart. In order that’s a great episode to revisit, too. My recommendation to Sandra was this: that there’s room to experiment with quite a lot of home techniques, and I actually encourage individuals to do this. Nonetheless, it’s just a little harmful to decide on a home system based mostly in your subjective expertise of your individual chart. What you would possibly understand as a extra correct interpretation of one thing like, say, the Moon within the eighth home in a single home system versus the ninth home in one other may simply as simply be due to different placements or elements in your chart.

For instance, when you had the Moon in facet to Pluto, this would possibly really feel just a little just like the Moon within the eighth home. Or, if the Moon’s in a detailed facet to Jupiter, that may really feel just a little bit extra just like the ninth home.

Some astrologers, together with these I actually respect, recommend {that a} planet that’s very near the boundary between two homes must be interpreted as form of working in each homes. Now, I feel perhaps it’s simply my Saturn in Capricorn which likes robust boundaries, however I determine when you’ve got chosen a home system that you simply belief, then it’s essential to depend on it to point out you that the planet is in a single home and never the opposite, and that it selected that home for an excellent cause.

So, as I stated, I’m all for experimenting with totally different home techniques.  However here’s what I recommend to my college students. Once you’re first getting began in astrology, I feel it’s most useful to select one home system and simply keep it up for some arbitrary period of time, let’s say for a few years, after which watch as transits, particularly fast-moving transits of the Solar, Moon, Mercury, and Venus transfer via the homes of your chart as calculated in that home system.

Attempt to put aside, to some extent, the persona profile of a planet in a single signal or the opposite, and perhaps give attention to these transits. And I feel that they’ll fairly shortly inform the story of which system actually resonates along with your chart.

Amanda, I actually hope that that helps.
