Land of the Free and Astrology Forecast February 5-11.
By Leo Knighton Tallarico
This week is a very meaningful week as we move through our first of two eclipses this month.
For those who have been sleep walking through life in their own little bubble, it will be time to wake up this week.
It is not difficult now-a-days to get into a bubble, as drug and technology addictions tend to create protective separations from life and people.
But during an Eclipse Season, as it is now, status quo stances are broken down and consciousness breakthroughs occur more frequently.
This week, to go along with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Friday, Jupiter changes direction and goes Retrograde; Mercury enters Aquarius; and the Sun sextiles Uranus.
That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is in Aquarius/Leo on Friday February 10 at 7:33 PM EST. The Sun is therefore in Aquarius, the Moon is in Leo, and both Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aquarius make aspect to that Full Moon.
The old chapter of life will already start to seem like a distant past.
We let you know that this Eclipse Season would bring the first true challenges to the Trump adminstration’s agendas.
And now a judge in Washington state has put a stop to the Trump executive order to put a hold on immigration from certain countries.
It should become more clear than ever this Eclipse Season that the Trump presidency is a big trigger for world change. It is also a time when more and more people will wake up and be determined to make a difference in this world.
The Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse shows big egos (Leo) facing challenges from the community (Aquarius).
Jupiter and Uranus making aspect to that Lunar Eclipse bring expansive energy (Jupiter) and transformational breakthroughs (Uranus).
Aquarius also represents a world collective, which will greatly challenge executive control by the USA President (Leo).
Iran already is letting the USA president know it will not bow down to its demands.
President Trump has Leo rising in his natal chart, with Mars in Leo conjunct that rising sign.
Please don’t get me wrong however about the sign Leo. All people with the sign Leo strongly placed in their natal chart do not develop narcissism.
But they do demand attention. And they also shine a bright light of hope and positivity.
The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo, and of course quite arguably the Sun is the most important planet in our solar system. It provides warmth and light and a strong center for all the other planets that revolve around it.
Now if that Sun had an ego it might look at itself as a great entity more important than all others. So you can see how big the ego can potentially grow into with the sign Leo.
But if those with strong Leo placements stay in their hearts (which is their natural place) they become creative light and love spread all around.
But if they take their accolades from others into their heads and not their hearts, they can then develop monstrous egos, both positive and negative ones.
Presidents Obama and Clinton are both Sun in Leo people.
So at this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, balance the needs of social consciousness (Aquarius) with needs for personal importance (Leo).
Keep in mind that Leo is not lesser in value than Aquarius. Aquarius without Leo would be like a train without an engine, or a body without a heart, or a solar system without a Sun.
The needs of the many are so important, but individual energetic expression provides the fuel for all to be energized.
Jupiter changing directions on Monday this week provides us with expansive, upward moving energy. It gives us a bigger and more meaningful perspective to life.
Mercury leaving linear logical Capricorn for inventive “outside the box” Aquarius for around a month, provides us the ability to free ourselves from stuck places in our minds.
Mercury moves into Aquarius on Tuesday February 7.
On February 9 the Sun sextiles Uranus. The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius. So the same themes from the Full Moon prevail.
In this case the Sun is the center and Uranus is what shakes up the center. So expressing oneself as being different and countercultural may be a result of this aspect- as well as a result of the Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.
The new administration is trying to firm up control by the executive branch of government (Leo). The congress (Aquarius) is a constitutional counter to that executive power. And of course “the people” (Aquarius) of this country are supposed to be the real power of this country.
It is really interesting that the USA natal Moon is at 26 degrees of Aquarius in the 3rd house. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this week is at 22 degrees of Aquarius/Leo, so it is making a strong aspect to the USA natal Moon.
The Moon in a natal chart represents the inner values, and in the USA we have our constitutional Aquarian values: liberty, freedom of speech, diversity in unity, and the power of the people.
So now President Trump is trying to make himself, as the top executive, the greatest power of the country. And now the power of the people will challenge that executive power and seek to bring us back to our deeper values.
Remember that America began with a revolution of democratic values(Aquarius) against the King of England (Leo).
President Trump, who has been a powerful business executive, will be continuing to challenge the inner values of the United States by attempting to be a kind of King of America.
This coming August will bring an even more powerful eclipse: A Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travels all across America for the first time since 1918.
That Eclipse will be opposite the USA natal moon in Aquarius, even closer than the one this week. Trump’s natal Mars will be conjunct that very powerful Solar Eclipse.
We will analyze that more as we get closer to August.
For this week, stay poised to move with change and to let go of old patterns and habits. Old programmed beliefs and attitudes can be let go now and more light from the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius can be let in.
This week those who have planets in Leo and Aquarius will be most affected, and those with planets in Taurus and Scorpio will be largely very affected also.
