Moon Report February 2020
The Full Moon on February 8, will occur in sidereal Cancer in the lunar star of Ashlesha, symbolized by the coiled serpent. The serpent represents our kundalini or life force at the base of our spines, as well as healing with herbs or suffering from poisons that alter the state of mind. The zodiac sign of Cancer brings these matters home, as well as in the global waters of foreign affairs. Be sure to drink only the best-filtered water and beverages this month.
With Saturn’s gaze, beware of the tendencies for rigidity in your personal lives as well as government dogma and righteousness which can lead to conflict. Ashlesha can be sneaky, but by the light of this particular full moon, thieves, cheaters, and liars of all kinds will suddenly become public and held accountably. With Venus exalted in the 6th house of litigation, we can expect some wonky arguments based on exaggerations and a sense of entitlement both personally and globally.
Stay in your own lane and practice kindness. A Cancer moon is very strong because she’s in her proverbial home, purifying all the cobwebs that were once hidden in the basement of our lives. Pay attention to matters of motherhood and family by being extra kind and forgiving to your own mother or mother-like women in your orbit and your own children this month. May the Divine Mother (Moon), shine her light on the dark corners of our world and bring world peace.
The New Moon on February 23, will occur in sidereal Aquarius, the lunar star of Shatabisha, represented by an empty circle and the cosmic and terrestrial waters. Symbolic of all things aquatic, Shatabisha can cause watery and emotional upheaval which can give rise to new beginnings as this lunar star will wash away emotional situations that no longer serve us. As moon shares her home with mercury while he’s in retrograde this month, it can cause feelings of lunacy, misunderstandings, delays, feelings of heightened intuition and sensitivity or both. Use your sensitivity for compassion and know that this too shall pass. It’s a grand time to begin a new career or launch a new idea or book. This is a time of sacred and purposeful reflection and a chance to reinvent yourself at any age. Remember, we are all in this together and all is well in the Universe.
The difference between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac is about 23 degrees. Both systems have value. Sidereal astrologers believe the qualities of the signs are not related to the seasons, but rather to the specific portions of the ecliptic as measured against the fixed lunar stars.
