February 2022 Astrology: Ten Planets in Capricorn and Aquarius
Looking at the movements of the planets against their starry backgrounds, there looks to be a very tight grouping of planets in sidereal Capricorn and Aquarius, starting in later February and culminating in early March. Basically, all planets are together with the sole exception of Uranus which at square to them.
Counting the Moon and (asteroid) Juno, that makes ten planets in two adjacent signs, with only provocative Uranus perpendicular to the grouping. As I see it, later February and early March may be watershed energetic/emotional times, which delivers us to our next appointed collective evolutionary development.
It may be a relatively small development, but seeing as these signs (Capricorn and Aquarius) are ruled by imposing Saturn, these may be significant developments, nevertheless.
Saturn like to bring things back to reality, a sobering cold-water-in-the-face type of experience, such as major market corrections, restrictive/oppressive actions of “necessity”, or a somewhat more benign clarity of perception now minus the overly hopeful delusions we cling to from time to time.
Being shorn of our crutch-delusions can indeed be painful, but it is the first step to getting on the right track.
Uranus at square to the configuration spurs reformist revitalizing responses in us all. Some may just want to knock the walls down, but others will want to construct new structures more fitting to the times. The keyword I believe is “new”, the new emerging order out of the chaos.
