Major collective themes for your awareness include Mars, Venus, Saturn and Pluto.
Venus, the planet of values and resources, will make 6 aspects from 16-22* Capricorn. This follows Mercury doing the same thing during its last retrograde sojourn through Cap, so those new communication lessons will now be applied to a deeper understanding of what is important to us. Powerful personal practice that will help us greatly prior to the Mars retrograde coming up April 17th.
So Mercury and Venus set the stage for refining our values. Values determine what we need and desire for our future. This interplay then allows Mars energy to move forth in the most productive ways with sustainable action.
Mars will enter its retrograde shadow Feb. 18th and will be retrograde April 17 through June 29th. This month, Mars will aspect Pluto, Uranus, Chiron, Jupiter and the nodal axis setting the stage for new desires to be manifested. With the New Moon of Aquarius just after the Sun squares Mars, it can be a good time to push ourselves forward if we can do so objectively without too much fear and anxiety.
If you feel much distress, that is your signal to postpone major career and health choices until later this spring.
