Venus Conj. Mars, Aspecting Jupiter
The planetary configurations are building up a somewhat strong crescendo in March 2015. In a very short span of days next month we will be having a very tight configuration between the Nodes, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto, plus the addition of Saturn turning retrograde. It’s basically the grand finale of the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square that has been in effect over the last year or two that all the astrologers have been buzzing about. But I will be covering that in more depth later.
In the meantime, during this two week period, we will be having our share of astrological intensity, which may help set us up for the bigger event next month. I’ve rather concisely detailed them below, but one configuration stands outs in particular as being rather nice and fuzzy.
On Friday-Saturday, Feb 20-21, 2015, Venus and Mars will exactly conjunct and simultaneously make a minor hard aspect (sesquiquadrate) to Jupiter. Rheinhold Ebertin in the book The Combination of Stellar Influences describes this three way configuration as: A healthy sex-relationship, a strong physical attraction, a rich soul life and expression of feeling.
A little warmth and intimacy is a welcome thing, especially when the stars above “agree” with it. The one caveat with Jupiter in the equation is that things may become a little exaggerated, inflated, sensationalized, which sometimes takes away from the overall legitimacy of the affair.
At bottom of this article are additional charts, even tropical for the hard-core westerners .You can also see the forming square of the Sun to Saturn (with Neptune configuring in), the upcoming square of Uranus and Pluto, the Mars trine Saturn, the Mercury-Jupiter opposition, the Jupiter-Pluto quincunx, and the conjunction of Venus to the South Node. All in all, quite a basket of goods.
Tuesday, Feb 17
Emotional depth coinciding with the need to break free from heretofore limiting or stifling influences. (Sun semisquare Uranus, Venus quintile Pluto)
Wednesday, Feb 18
Breakdowns, collapse. The old order changes. Raw, the phoenix rises from the ruins. Be careful with the implementation or mal-implementation of power, control or influence. Primal forces may attempt to seize control. (Sun semisquare Pluto)
Thursday, Feb 19
Circumspection, analysis and discrimination are favored. Getting to real issues, coming to order, and establishing lasting reforms are indicated. (Mercury sextile Saturn)
Fri-Sat, Feb 20-21
Romance, excitement and adventure call. Be careful going overboard with proclamations, promises or predictions. The spirit of the moment can be so (over-) confidence inspiring. Be careful of falling for ultimately trite, pretentious, or propagandistic figures or ideals. (Venus conjunct Mars, Mars sesquiquadrate Jupiter)
Sunday, Feb 22
No peaking influences
Monday, Feb 23
Monday morning may feel especially drudgery-like. Moods may tend towards crabbiness. Problems and delays may mar the smooth progress of things, yet every delay will bring important issues to light that must be resolved. Be careful of accidents, injuries, or worse. (Sun square Saturn)
Tuesday, Feb 24
Love burns purposefully. Strong bonds can be established. (Venus trine Saturn)
Wednesday, Feb 25
Focused attention can bring about significant change, with willing muscle. However, energy, motivations and thoughts may not fully comply. Strangely contradictory energies. Sublime creativity may combine with diligence to produce profound life developments. Be careful of addictive or pathological tendencies. (Sun conjunct Neptune, Mars trine Saturn)
Thursday, Feb 26
No peaking influences
Friday, Feb 27
Idealism and base power are activated, which can produce wonderful life developments, but some of which may be on shaky ethical ground. Be careful with how time, money, and energy is invested right now; that the winner in the end is not the con man, loan shark, or the imposter. Confidence may be high, leading to potentially amazing manifestations. (Jupiter quincunx Pluto)
Saturday, Feb 28
No peaking influences
Sunday, Mar 1
Hyperbole and excess, but potentially little effective action. New ideas though can emerge to help liberate us from the tyranny of the boxes of thought we find ourselves in, boxes that contained us only because we allowed them to. (Mercury opposite Jupiter, sextile Uranus)
Monday, Mar 2
Deep changes in love and relationships are indicated, emotional epiphanies and spiritual transformations. There may be some tragic losses or separations, but when one door closes, there are other doors to be found down the line. (Venus conjunct South Node)
