The Sun

Solar activity was very low. A small and immature sunspot has emerged near the southeast limb. It has shown very little growth over the last several hours and was by and large inactive. The spot will be monitored in order to determine if it should be assigned a NOAA/SWPC Region Number.

The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently above average, making retrograde effects moderately increased.

The UTC day began with elevated solar wind parameters resulting from a positive polarity CH HSS. Winds decreased from a high of 546 km/s to just under 400 km/s by midday with waning CH HSS influence. After 12 UTC, the IMF became unsettled again, with total field peaking at 7 nT and Bz deviating southward for short intervals. Wind speed increased back to 450+ km/s. The phi angle was predominately positive.

There is a 15% chance of solar activity, with a 1% chance of a minor event, a 1% chance of a moderate event, and a 1% chance of a strong event.


The Moon

The moon is currently in Capricorn, at 22 degrees, 42' 32", at a velocity of 13.65 degrees per day.

The Waning Crescent moon is currently 27.2 days old. It is 376417.12 km from the centre of the Earth.

The next new moon is at 19:08:11, 11 Feb, 2021. The next full moon is at 8:19:36, 27 Feb, 2021.

Moon in Capricorn

How much do you have left undone right now? Focus your attention on those unfinished projects and get them off your plate. Put in the work and while the moon is in Capricorn you're going to clear that todo list. Work smart! With the moon in conservative Capricorn, it's time to be a bit more cautious, focus seriously, and embrace that "down to earth" nature. Pay attention to the longer-term goals. During this Capricorn Moon, take note of your professional life. Put in the extra effort and it will pay off, and always keep your eye on the next move.

The Sun

The Sun is in Aquarius

The Sun is at 20 Aqu 58' 31", and is 147606880 km away and receding.

The Sun in Aquarius

When the Sun moves into the mentally active and social sign of Aquarius, it’s time to come back out and reconnect with the world.

Aquarius is an intellectual sign that embraces originality and freedom, so you’re free to walk to the beat of your own drum under the Aquarius Sun!

But as much as the Water-bearer prizes individuality, this sign is also intently aware of humanity as a whole, and champions the rights of all people. The Sun’s transit through revolutionary Aquarius is an opportunity to step back from our individual identities, and realize that every living thing on Earth is valuable and connected.

Change begins with YOU while the Sun moves through idealistic Aquarius! See all the ways you can embrace this powerful transit here:

WHAT TO DO:

Volunteer. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac, greatly concerned with the lives and situations of others. Help support the greater good by spending time volunteering for a cause that’s important to you.

WHAT TO SAY:

"You matter." Aquarius stands up for the equality of all, yet still celebrates the differences of each individual. Instead of looking at others as a faceless mass, look at the unique qualities of everyone around you, and realize that each person has something to contribute to the world.

WHERE TO GO:

Book club. As the sign of groups and friendships, Aquarius loves to get together with like-minded souls and exchange new ideas. Joining any group or organization will help expand your community, your mind, and your social circle.

WHAT TO WEAR:

Hair dye. Unique and rebellious, Aquarius is all about expressing their originality. Fun hair colors, extensions, or a new edgy style can help you embrace your individuality and make you stand out among the crowds during Aquarius season.

WHAT TO BUY:

Donate. As the most socially-aware sign, Aquarius’ money is well spent on helping out causes that are very important to them. While the Sun’s in Aquarius, put yourself aside and give what you can to a homeless shelter, animal rescue group, climate conservation effort, or any other cause that serves the greatest good.

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR:

Being a smarty pants! As a sign of the mind, Aquarians can acquire so much knowledge that they come across as know-it-alls. Everyone is full of brilliant ideas and opinions while the Sun is in Aquarius, so be sure to listen to others, too!

WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO:

Making new friends. Aquarians are very social and tend to belong on teams and in groups where they can enjoy spending time with people who like what they like. Take advantage of the Aquarian energy to enlarge your social circle!

Mercury

Mercury is in Aquarius

Mercury is retrograde at 18 Aqu 53' 25", moving backwards at 1.19 degrees per day, and is 97018016 km away and approaching.

mercury in aquarius

Our thoughts and ideas become more progressive when Mercury sets up camp in Aquarius. This sign is known for pushing the envelope, so when it pairs up with the planet of mental activity, we’ll want to consider what could be rather than what is. We shouldn’t be surprised if we come up with a few far-fetched and wacky ideas during Mercury in Aquarius.

Aquarius is about remaining neutral and not letting our feelings get in the way of the truth. So when Mercury does his trek through this sign, we’ll have the opportunity to view the things we’re emotionally invested in through a more rational lens. This approach could finally help us see people and situations for what they really are. Expect a few "a-ha" moments courtesy of this dynamic duo!

The one thing to watch out for during Mercury’s time in this sign is hurting or neglecting other people’s feelings. The cerebral nature of Mercury in Aquarius can overpower emotions and rationalize them away, making it difficult to feel. It’s possible that we’ll lose touch with our sensitive sides, so we need to do our best to handle any conversations we have during this time with care.

Pluto

Venus

Venus is in Aquarius

Venus is prograde at 09 Aqu 56' 21", moving at 1.25 degrees per day, and is 250014278 km away and receding.

venus in aquarius

The line between love and friendship is very thin once Venus enters Aquarius! Aquarius rules friendship and groups of all kinds, so during this transit, we often find ourselves falling for people we already know. We may realize those we’ve previously written off as "just friends" could be our perfect match. The likelihood of meeting a new lover through mutual friends and social outings also increases greatly while Venus is in Aquarius.

Aquarius is less attached to its emotions than other signs, relying more on the head than the heart when relating to others. We aren’t so interested in connecting over passionate encounters and sweet nothings while Venus is in Aquarius -- instead, we want to unite with those who think the same as we do. Aquarius’ loose grip on love gives Venus room to move, making love less sticky and partnership less confining. Those who like the warm and squishy stuff might find others a bit standoffish during this transit. However, the Aquarian approach is less possessive and can bring a needed breath of reason and fresh air to partnerships.

If in a committed relationship, Venus in Aquarius lightens the level of intimacy and encourages us to reconnect with the honesty, friendship, and common interests that drew us to our partners in the first place. Working together on an environmental or social cause that’s meaningful to both partners can also help rekindle hearts during this transit. We may even find that we feel a lot freer to be individuals within our relationships. Venus in Aquarius makes it clear that pursuing our own passions separately enriches what we bring back to our relationships.

For people who are single and ready to mingle, this is one of the best times to do it! The planet of love and desire in the sign of idealism and creativity puts an unconventional -- even experimental -- flair on romance, and opens our minds about who and how we love. Parties with friends, organized meetups, and protests and other social causes are hotspots for meeting like-minded lovers now. And because Aquarius also likes things a little weird, we may find ourselves interested in people and experiences that we have never been attracted to before. Long story short: The more open we are now, the more likely we are to find love.

While Venus is in Aquarius, we are drawn to modern, original forms of art and personal style. It’s a great time to experiment with new ways of dress and decor. We also find greater benefit from high-tech gadgets, and splurging on new electronics now can help us well beyond this transit.

Pluto

Mars

Mars is in Taurus

Mars is prograde at 17 Tau 10' 22", moving at 0.55 degrees per day, and is 190817277 km away and receding.

mars in taurus

Warrior planet Mars is about initiative and jumping into action. Hard-headed Taurus wants to take it easy and do things at his own pace. So, Mars in Taurus could be a time when we find it more difficult to get new projects off the ground. However, if we do manage to get the ball rolling on a plan during this transit, the influence of Taurus’ enduring nature will make sure we see it all the way through.

Mars is the planet of anger, a stark contrast to the calm Bull who doesn’t charge unless provoked. As a result, we may try to avoid confrontation as much as possible when Mars is in Taurus. While it’s easier to hide out than it is to show up for a showdown, resentment doesn’t disappear because we’ve sidestepped it. It will just get pushed down until our tempers flare, making for explosive displays if we’re not careful.

"Where’s the money, honey?" That’s what we’ll be asking ourselves while Mars moves through security-seeking Taurus. Our finances will come into focus, and material comfort becomes more important. Mars in Taurus is an excellent opportunity for us to fight (Mars) for what we value (Taurus), and pursue our financial goals with incredible steadfastness.

But it won’t be all work and no play when Mars is in Taurus! The Bull also encourages us to slow down and enjoy all the earthly pleasures life has to offer. What’s the point of working so hard if we don’t stop to enjoy the fruits of our labor every once in a while? Taurus has perfected the art of indulgence, so when Mars moves through this sign, it’ll be a time for us to kick off our shoes and relax for a bit.

Pluto

Jupiter

Jupiter is in Aquarius

Jupiter is prograde at 12 Aqu 04' 43", moving at 0.24 degrees per day, and is 905815258 km away and approaching.

jupiter in aquarius

Aquarius is a very idealistic sign. It has a knack for seeing what’s wrong with the world, then coming up with unique and innovative ways to improve things. While Jupiter is moving through Aquarius, we are all gifted with this Aquarian ability to think and do things differently, and create a more ideal future. Thanks to the expanding nature of Jupiter, it’s easier to step outside of ourselves during this time to consider the needs of others in our communities, countries, and the world at large.

Jupiter in Aquarius makes us optimistic for the future. Regardless of how things look in the present moment, we know we have the ideas and solutions that will make for a better tomorrow. Instead of seeing limits we see opportunities. Instead of seeing differences we see similarities.

During Jupiter’s transit through Aquarius, we’ll find it easier to connect with other people who have the same visions as we do, so we can join forces to instigate the changes that need to be made. Jupiter is a planet that prizes learning, making this a time that we can learn a great deal from others. We want to share our own ideas with others, but we can gain even more knowledge by listening to the unique thoughts and experiences of those around us.

There is, however, a potential for philosophical extremism during this transit, if the radical tendencies of Aquarius are not tempered with compassion and respect for others’ opinions. Both Jupiter and Aquarius have a strong need to be right, and can be intolerant of differing viewpoints. We must remember that this is a time to look further than our individual preferences and privileges, and realize that we each need to be committed to the survival and well-being of the one group we ALL belong to: humanity.

Pluto

Saturn

Saturn is in Aquarius

Saturn is prograde at 06 Aqu 16' 42", moving at 0.12 degrees per day, and is 1635391135 km away and approaching.

saturn in aquarius

Aquarian energy is humanitarian. It is full of boundless ideas about what will improve the lives of others, and how shared efforts can make the world a better place. As the 11th sign of the zodiac, Aquarius rules over the 11th House of Groups and Visions. This is the playground of visionaries, inventors, and creators. But as with anything airy, this sign exists primarily on the mental plane. This is why when grounded and pragmatic Saturn moves into Aquarius, the two inspire each other in truly monumental ways.

With this focus on structure in the realm of groups and visions, now is the perfect time for us to connect with others and take action on our most lofty plans: find ways to give back to the community, network in some way with people in your field, or lay the groundwork for that non-profit that's been kicked around for ages.

Saturn in Aquarius can also be a very auspicious time to begin or deepen a relationship. This transit brings people together to reach beyond the individual’s capabilities. Romances or marriages that are established during this time are some of the most powerful and activated unions of all.

As much as this transit strengthens and deepens connections, it also has the potential to end that which is no longer serving us (or maybe never did in the first place). Be on the lookout for people and connections that drain you, and be ready to let them go. Now is the time for building sturdy and lasting structures. Sometimes this means letting go of weak links in friendship, love, and work.

Pluto

Uranus

Uranus is in Taurus

Uranus is prograde at 07 Tau 01' 07", moving at 0.02 degrees per day, and is 2989237551 km away and receding.

uranus in taurus

Taurus is a sign that likes things steady and stable, and isn’t the best at handling big, sudden changes ... but big, sudden changes are what Uranus is all about! Taurus would prefer to stick to the status quo and keep doing things the way they’ve always been done. The problem is, the old ways aren’t always the best ways. Even if we are resistant to the changes Uranus in Taurus brings, we have no choice but to go along for the ride, and, chances are, we’ll realize in the end that these changes brought us to a much better place.

Money is Taurus’ main area of expertise, so while Uranus is in Taurus, we can expect some very revolutionary ways of handling and dealing with money, both nationwide and worldwide. During the seven years Uranus will spend in Taurus, brand-new forms of currency may arise, banks and banking could come to a halt or change dramatically, and the housing and stock markets may be in for a major shake-up.

On a more personal level, Uranus in Taurus encourages us to break free from the grips of money: debt, taxes, credit card interest, rent, and mortgages are all things that can prevent us from saving money or using it the way we want to. We may also feel trapped by our material possessions in general. During this transit, we must be ready and willing to change our relationship to money and materialism -- we no longer have a choice. Uranus is here to liberate us, and digging in our heels and resisting won’t make things any easier ... and won’t stop these changes from happening. The changes we make during this period can actually help bring us to a point of greater stability, and can be very long-lasting.

Pluto

Neptune

Neptune is in Pisces

Neptune is prograde at 19 Pis 33' 00", moving at 0.03 degrees per day, and is 4605951438 km away and receding.

neptune in pisces

Neptune in Pisces grants us a unique form of sight. As the Piscean focus on emotion and spirit merges with Neptune’s pull to unify all things, a clarity emerges from the fog, shedding light on our own contradictions. We can suddenly see clearly the futility of caring about petty differences. The value of coming together shines like gold, and the path to wholeness is illuminated.

This transit calls us to look at what we each can contribute toward our collective progress and healing. We all have gifts, ideas, and dreams for how things could be. Neptune in Pisces is an invitation to explore our emotional intelligence for our own unique offerings.

This is the perfect time to take a course in a spiritual path that calls to us, or to create an altar space at home and connect with that which feels most sacred. The energy of Neptune in Pisces nudges us to consider how to then share these ideas with the world, and reminds us that its presence will support us in this process.

Pluto

Pluto

Pluto is in Capricorn

Pluto is prograde at 25 Cap 28' 42", moving at 0.03 degrees per day, and is 5251713751 km away and approaching.

Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto and Capricorn are both oriented toward success and power, sharing a strong sense of intention and focus that makes them very efficient in their tasks. We may find that our compassion for the viewpoints of other people gets cast aside during this transit, though, since both Pluto and Capricorn demand results. Beware of being intolerant of ideas other than your own.

Pluto wants us to jettison our negative patterns that no longer work for us. Of course, this involves some constructive destruction. Be deliberate in what you destroy as you create.

The Sun

Sun Conjunct Mercury

You may feel like expressing yourself today through your thoughts and words. You feel a need to be heard, that you have something of importance to say. Say what is on your mind, but give equal time to others and listen to them. You might learn something new. Your thinking today should be sharp and focused.

The Sun

The Sun

Sun Square Mars

You are full of it today, high energy, force of will, and a dislike of any restraint. Slow down a little so you don't go flying off the handle. Physical, mental, and verbal confrontations are likely today, so stay in control. Don't speed today as the police may be watching you. Don't stay out in the sun too long. Your will is tested today and the universe wants to see if you can keep your head. As they say, "Don't have a cow." Ego conflicts and selfishness are today's problem areas.There is an unmistakable competitiveness and a “me-first” attitude with those who have Sun square or opposition Mars in their natal charts. The fighter persona is most apparent in youth, when the child is described as a “bundle of energy”, or it is remarked that he or she “can’t sit still”. The abundant energy generated by the hard aspects (especially the square) between the Sun and Mars is hard to direct in childhood. Later in life, ideally, those with these aspects have learned to channel some of their excess energy into productive avenues–perhaps through career, sports, or any area where competitiveness is considered an asset. Nevertheless, people with these aspects can meet up with more than their share of conflict, and they can most certainly rub people the wrong way. They are very motivated to get things done, to take action rather than simply talk about something, and to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. Those who know them quite well might describe these people as hot-headed and temperamental at times. They are easily frustrated, and they’re given to impulsive actions and assertion of their wills. If the aspect is found in cardinal signs, it gives impulsiveness and a short temper. If the aspect is found in fixed signs, the natives can be very hard-headed and willful. If it’s in mutable signs, it gives a restless and frustrated impatience.Essentially, those with Sun square Mars in their charts have faced conflict and are not particularly afraid of it. They have faced having their need to assert themselves blocked. Their parents may have done as much as they could to “tame” what they felt to be excess energy or aggression. In other words, they know all about conflict and blockages, so that when they are faced with a challenge or a roadblock, they don’t run away from it or hide under the covers feeling sorry for themselves. They meet challenges head-on.Sun opposition Mars people are more confrontational and argumentative than active. In youth, they might feel that they often face anger from others. They might see the Mars energy as coming from the outside. If and when they face the fact that the aggression is actually a part of their own personalities, they are more equipped to direct the competitive energy into productive avenues.Some Famous people with Sun square or opposition Mars: Jennifer Aniston (Sun square Mars and Neptune in fixed signs), Bob Dylan, Madonna, Muhammad Ali (square), Anne Heche (opposition), Jim Morrison (opposition).Note: The square, semi-square, sesquiquadrate, and opposition are also called “hard”, “challenging”, or “inharmonious” aspects.Sun in hard aspect to Mars: In this life you are learning to embody and express the energies of the warrior; courage, action, forcefulness, the ability to fight for what you want and need. However, these positive qualities can quickly degenerate into unnecessary and excessive aggression, discordant relationships, even violence. Your tendency to be impatient and hot headed, and to see everyone as a potential competitor or rival, may draw out the anger and combativeness in other people. Your challenge is to learn to use your overabundant energy in productive, or at least not destructive, action. — Interpretation from the Karmic Insight report.Sun square Mars: Sun/Mars aspects enhance your courage, assertiveness, leadership, independence, and love of power. You seek an exciting career that will allow expression of your natural enthusiasm, energy, entrepreneurial drive, and crusading spirit. When you stand up for your beliefs and values, you inspire others to follow your lead. You like being in charge and would probably feel stifled in a routine job or a subordinate position. You enjoy adventure and competition, and may be interested in Mars-ruled careers like the police, detective work, the military, politics, sports, debating, engineering, construction, haircutting, or any field that uses sharp instruments. If you do not learn to control your impulsivity and restlessness, you may be prone to headaches, nervousness, irritability, angry outbursts, accidents, or problems with the law. The Rambo movie character would have this aspect in his chart. — Interpretation from our Career Report.Sun square Mars: This is a highly emotional and fiery tempered child. The child will probably be very self-assertive not to mention argumentative. So a few lessons in toeing the line will be necessary. Kids with this aspect are often too quick to pick up a challenge even when none was intended. They must learn to calm down and not be quite so hasty. Training this child to take full responsibility from an early age, without attaching guilt, is by far the best approach. Sometimes these kids may not even recognize the effect their nature has on others, so they will be genuinely confused at the reactions an outburst may cause. The poor kid may stir people without even knowing it, by tone of voice, body language, or by not saying anything. But most importantly, put some effort into allowing this child to recognize the sheer potency of this powerful energy. Help him/her to utilize it thoroughly. The child must learn to bow out now and again – it is not always possible to run the show. Being the most dogmatic, vocal, and aggressive does not necessarily make for the best leader.Often there will be a quick temper that flares suddenly. The big lesson is to make this child responsible for any outbursts rather than reacting or maybe turning a blind eye for the sake of peace. There could be a good reason for such anger. Encourage a positive discussion making this a part of the training and guidance needed for a calmer, more in control, child. This aspect makes for some bad drivers. It also produces many good athletes. This is the real difference between using this energy constructively or destructively. — Interpretation for the KidZone report.Sun square Mars: There is a lack of harmony between your environment and your ambitions. What you need most is not always at hand to make the kind of progress you envision. Or, when the support is there, you can’t get the instruction or direction you require. You may have forgotten where it was you wanted to get to, sort of “all dressed up, but which way to go?” It could be historical, too, as simple as being torn between your mother and your father — a struggle between that which seeks to nurture you (and perhaps baby you) and your ambitions — a need to succeed and be all that you can be. — Interpretation from WinStar.Sun square Mars: (The Outraged) It is difficult for you to see a need for concession. You have no patience with another’s input when you are confident you are right. You may work harder than others and your ego demands you receive full credit. If denied or opposed, your fiery reactions may eclipse the rewards you have earned. By learning that compromise is the blending of positive energies, you employ the wisdom of a respected master instead of the mandates of a tyrant welcomed by none. — Interpretation from the Spirit Success report.

Mercury

Mercury

Mercury Square Mars

You may have a big mouth today and it could get you into trouble. Take time to think before you speak so that you don't end up with hoof (foot) in mouth disease. You may feel rash and headstrong today. Control your impulsiveness and your nervous energy. Slow down, take a few deep breaths, and relax. Read a book, write a poem, and realize that you don't have to verbally abuse people to get them to see things your way. Don't go looking for trouble today. Trouble will find you quick enough. Watch your offhand remarks. You may bum more people out than you think. Be careful driving or working on machinery. Don't let little irritations get to you. Be tactful.You can be quick on the trigger when it comes to verbal reactions to others, and you are not always courteous or tactful when it comes to expressing your opinions. You often take things quite personally, and your defensiveness can make it hard for others to have peaceful or productive conversations with you at times. You might often compete for the floor when it comes to expressing your ideas, thoughts, and opinions. You might often find yourself stirring up controversy with what you say, or how you say it.You are very quick with your perceptions, and you might speak quickly and move quickly as well. You are an energetic worker, and you are excellent at rallying for what you believe in.You are very witty, and often sarcastic. You are quick to offer an opinion and express your thoughts, often without much sensitivity. Some with this aspect in their charts are prone to lying. You love a good debate, but sometimes turn conversations that needn’t be stressful into arguments.Your mind is very sharp and critical, and you are insatiably curious. Your mind can be so quick that you are nervous, easily stressed, often over-stimulated, and prone to headaches. Impatience, especially while driving or operating machinery, could lead to accidents.Some Famous People with the Mercury in Hard Aspect to Mars: Squares – Bjorn Borg, Sylvia Plath, Jean Piaget, Sheena Easton, Marilyn Manson, Demi Moore, Meat Loaf, Tina Turner, Randy Travis, Oprah Winfrey; Oppositions – Dinah Shore, Bernadette Peters, Ludwig van Beethoven, Alice Cooper.

Venus Conjunct Jupiter

This should be a very harmonious and easy going day for you. Your main objective should be to control overindulging yourself in food and drink or with respect to spending money. You are likely to pamper yourself today. Just don't get carried away.Whether these people are shy or outgoing, law-abiding or reckless, quiet or loud…they possess a very grand idea of love, and they have an indulgent side to them that is unmistakable, and possibly hard to control. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and in this case, it’s enlarging the qualities of Venus: romance, relationship, pleasure, and money. This doesn’t necessarily mean that all of these things will come easily to natives with a Venus-Jupiter conjunction. But the appetite for pleasure, romance, and, in some cases, material things, is big. Their hearts are big too–most of the time, if given a choice, they’ll opt for the high road. They are generous with people they love (and with themselves!), dangerous with a credit card, and incurable romantics. They tend to assign positive traits to the people they love, whether those people deserve them or not!One of their weak spots is their love of pleasure. Some have a definite lazy streak. They are very affectionate people who are generous with their emotions and, usually, their pocketbook too. When they care about you, they are quite loyal and faithful. Their opinions about love and friendship are strong–they generally have lofty ideals in these areas. Their hearts are open and they have a tendency to want to give a lot to the people they love. They may live beyond their means, especially if the conjunction is challenged by other planets. They need to learn not to borrow from their future.They have a greater than average need to grow in their love relationships, and to shower their partners with acceptance and warmth. They have a strong need for growth, good humor, and fun in their relationships. They have a marked disdain for insincerity, placing great value on people with good intentions and good hearts. They do whatever they can to make those around them feel comfortable, accepted, and of value exactly as they are.Interpretation sample from the Your Spiritual Path report — The pursuit of wisdom parallels the pursuit of love in your life. Any conflict in love relationships causes you to consider your spiritual values all over again. You may like the stage of falling in love with a spiritual idea so much that you choose to do it many times before you establish a solid foundation.Some Famous People with Venus conjunct Jupiter: Drew Barrymore, John Belushi, Jeff Bridges, Garth Brooks, Dick Cavett, Patty Duke, Richard Dysart, Morgan Fairchild, Peter Fonda, Ann Jillian, Don Johnson, Jerry Lewis, George Nader, Joe Namath, Paul Newman, Roman Polanski, Trent Reznor, Paul Shaffer, Steven Spielberg, Robert Urich, Henry Winkler, Dwight Yoakam.

Venus Conjunct Saturn

You may feel depressed today regarding your relationships with other people. If you are feeling unloved or unlovable, remember that you first have to give love before you can get love. And not the selfish kind of love that asks for something in return. Trust yourself and take steps today to see the good in you. If you cannot value yourself, how do you expect others to value you? Coldness in love affairs is possible today, but the effects of this aspect do not last long.On a personal level, these people hold back free expression of their feelings, especially with regard to expressions of love. Mind you, they are masters of compromise, duty, and responsibility to their mates, and it is through this dedication that they do in fact express their love. Often, there is some form of deprivation in the childhood, associated with either mother or father, or both. Most commonly, the child absorbs something from the parents’ relationship that results in a deep sense of obligation towards the mate and emotional reserve. Fear of letting go, enjoying the moment, and expressing love openly is strong. Although this aspect in classical astrology is associated with a delayed marriage or loneliness, I see it much more frequently in the charts of people who do indeed “partner”, often early, and who stick to the relationship through thick and thin. Often, they are lonely even though they are partnered. Commonly as well, they bend to a demanding partner much of their lives. There is fear associated with love, and many people with this position struggle with a lack of confidence. One of their greatest fears is rejection. Another reason why they might remain loyal to a challenging marriage can be a fear of letting down family and of what he or she feels would be a blow to the reputation. Sometimes, material concerns are connected with relationships. Some stick to relationships because they give them a sense of material security. Self-sacrifice is extremely common with this position. However, even though they crave more than anything to be loved unconditionally, their conviction that they won’t get that kind of love keeps them from really trying to find it. With Saturn, there is a simultaneous fear of failure and fear of success that keeps people from feeling free or brave enough to go after what they truly want.There can be a somewhat detached manner, and many people with this aspect (especially men) can come across as skeptical, matter-of-fact, and even superficial on a social level. They are masters at protecting their feelings, and do whatever they can to avoid letting others know of their vulnerabilities. Of course, this kind of defense mechanism further prevents them from finding happiness in love. It is so very hard for them to let down their defenses. They’ll need to really know where they stand with you before they can feel at least somewhat safe. Negative expectations in love must be handled in order to begin work on handling this aspect. The good news with Saturn is that its energy is handled better with time and maturity. These people should make a conscious effort to evaluate their behavior. If they admit to themselves that they do in fact want and need to be loved by a partner, they can work on slowly dropping their defenses. For example, keeping loved ones at arm’s length and pretending that you are just fine on your own isn’t going to encourage intimacy. Jumping to negative conclusions or withdrawing emotionally when an expression of warmth is not received exactly as you intended is not going to help either. It’s also a good idea to examine the choice of partners. There can be an unconscious attraction to people who love you for all the wrong reasons–for superficial or material reasons. Maintaining “business-like” love relationships somehow keeps people with these aspects feeling safe, but they unfortunately perpetuate a deep feeling of loneliness and unworthiness.With the conjunction, and especially with supporting aspects from other planets, these people have every opportunity to advance in their chosen career. Business sense is strong, especially in the areas of finance and the arts. Commitment, whether to a pet project, a job, a business, or a person, is characteristic.Alternate interpretations:*Intimacy does not come easily to you and you may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to your emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in your early life, you do not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to take down all of your barriers and defenses. You may feel that you have few friends or people that really care about you. You need to learn to value and love yourself more and to express your appreciation for others more openly.#You are reserved. You don’t jump into a spiritual practice any more than you jump into a love relationship. You may do best with a spiritual teacher who is much older or younger than yourself. You accept endings as a necessary part of life.

Unstable romantic infatuations and impractical or irresponsible attitudes and conduct in relationships should be guarded against. There is a desire to break free from binding partnerships. Impulsive spending may be your idea of breaking free. Be careful during this transit because you are probably not thinking with your head, only your heart, which is your wild side right now. Your behavior now may be so bohemian or bizarre that people turn against you. Settle down and apply self-discipline.The need for stimulation and the need to break the rules with regards to love and romance is apparent when Venus squares or opposes Uranus in the natal chart. These people can confuse their partners readily with their on-again off-again energy when it comes to matters of the heart. With the opposition, this is especially pronounced–when they are given too much space, they feel unloved, yet when they get the love they seem to crave, they can feel smothered by it. They can alienate partners by adopting an “I don’t care what you do” stance when they feel threatened. The truth is, they do fear rejection like anyone else, but they don’t always want to admit it, and they can turn quite cold when they suspect their partner doesn’t care. The energy of Venus-Uranus in hard aspect is embodied in the expression, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”. When close to a loved one, they can eventually feel smothered or antsy if the relationship becomes too predictable. They can also detach themselves from living in the moment and enjoying the love they have. When apart, they feel more free to love. This aspect is common in the charts of people who maintain long-distance or otherwise erratic relationships. There can be abrupt beginnings and endings in relationships. They are not very “good” at endings–they can appear quite insensitive, aloof, and brusque. The “let’s be friends” attitude might hurt a partner who felt there was much more to the relationship. These people have a disdain for conventional, traditional, or otherwise “normal” relationships. They need to learn to balance their need for closeness and their need for freedom. They truly detest social pretenses, and insist on being sincere. Being well-liked takes second place to sincerity. There is a strong attraction to all that is different, and all that “shouldn’t” be done in love and in sex. Taste in clothing and art is unusual, original, and unique.There is a tendency to react spontaneously and intensely to others, and there is marked emotional impulsiveness with these aspects. Their most successful relationships are unconventional ones. Whether they do so publicly or privately, they delight in defying convention. They tend to move on and outgrow friendships. Some possess considerable romantic charm and humor, and they can pretty much charm the birds out of the trees when they choose to do so! Their love feelings are easily aroused and their romantic relationships begin with suddenness. There is a marked inner craving for emotional excitement and a need to feel spontaneous and free.Alternate interpretations:Venus square Uranus or Venus opposition Uranus: *Your love feelings are easily aroused and your romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and you may be in and out of love frequently – especially in your younger years. You crave emotional excitement and need to feel spontaneous and free, so you may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to you, and you are attracted to unique, creative, or unstable people.#You tend to fall in love instantly, and you need to discriminate between passing sexual fancy and something that can last “forever.” As your intuition develops, you will be able to identify the difference more clearly. When you “fall,” that is a good time to marshal all your respect for yourself and your partner, and to take things one day at a time until you have forged a deep connection.

Notes about Transits

Mars is all about action, and where Mars is in our chart with transits is a place where we are prepared to stand our ground. Mars transits can be really productive, but they can also be angsty, aggressive, and sometimes come from a place of anger. It's important to pay attention to how you direct that energy. Mars transits can last for up to a couple weeks.
Jupiter transits enhance your life with optimism and forward-thinking, and lasting for about a month, give you plenty of time to take advantage. Bigger and better is Jupiter's way of thinking, and should be yours as well.
Saturn transits, on the other hand, are where we get a major reality check, and if we’re not ready for them, they can be pretty rotten. Of course, if we’re prepared and up to the task, Saturn transits can also bring very well-deserved rewards, too. Saturn transits last a bit longer than Jupiter transits—usually 2 months or so at a time, but with retrograde cycles, you could be looking at the same lessons three times over a 6 month period.
The outer planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto last for such a long time that they make long-lasting impacts on our lives. In fact, Neptune and Pluto can last for two to three years! Consider their effects, plan accordingly, and make them part of your life for the better.
