Weekly Astrology Notes February 4-11, 2018
Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
Weekly Summary: Kind of similar to last week, it’s another party week. Venus sextile Uranus on Tuesday makes it a very easy-going day, good time to be with friends, a time when it’s easy to love everyone. Universal (Uranus) love (Venus) is the theme. Excellent time for relationships as well. A couple of little challenges during the rest of the week, and then on Saturday, Sun square Jupiter and it’s another party day.
And these two aspects really highlight the incredibly positive Aquarius energy we are experiencing these days. The Venus sextile Uranus is the first of 3 sextiles from Aquarius to Uranus which elevate us to new heights of awareness, activate the higher mind, help us to develop new associations. Time to make new friends, find your tribe and spend time with them. Along the way we let go of judgment regarding people who are very different from us, have a different lifestyle or different way of seeing the world, and just learn to appreciate people whose value in this world is not evident to you. Venus sextile Uranus is very good at seeing the intrinsic value in others, it is the mark of the teacher and that’s what we need to do in earnest this week.
Rigid viewpoints dissolve in the sun shine of Aquarius. We need to bring light into the darkness within ourselves and we must dedicate ourselves to enlightening others, be a good member of the tribe, have truly egalitarian value, see others as equals, one who is supportive of others, and especially one who does not undermine the integrity of the group. This is a big issue with Aquarius. As my father use to tell me, every Aquarius is a closet Leo. Many of the liberal people in our culture who enjoy playing the part of the Aquarian archetype are not really Aquarian in nature. Really much of what passes as Aquarius is actually Leo in nature, such as the politicians and media talking heads who express Aquarian values in what they say, but really they are all just a bunch of drama queens and kings. This is the Aquarian illusion many fall into, thinking you are acting in a positive Aquarius manner but really it’s just the negative side of Leo. All signs show this behavior, the negative side of one sign if often expressed as what you’d expect to be the negative side of the opposite sign. So we are breaking through the Aquarian illusions we have about ourselves and others.
This is very important. Consider that these sextiles from Aquarius to Uranus (Aries) cross over the threshold (0d Aries) from one cycle to the next, that means we are taking the untapped and underutilized Aquarius energy within ourselves and bringing it forth in a powerful moment of reawakening of spirit as Uranus in Aries, now in the last degrees still beckons us to manifest the warrior spirit within ourselves. And the Jupiter squares really help us let go or rigidity, forgive and move on to something new.
Changes, changes, changes. Get comfortable with them. Let loose and go with the flow. The party atmosphere this week will continue the next week through Mardi Gras and the New Moon. So, most importantly of all, enjoy yourself this week, have fun, play, do something exciting and invigorating, meet new people. Let nothing bother you, be as free spirited, adaptable and easy-going as you can.
The positive, communal and loving aspects this week are in stark contrast to the transits for the USA this coming weekend. The idealistic tone of Neptune trine Sun last week during the State of the Union speech, will quickly dissolve as this Friday and Saturday bring very contentious transits for the USA. There is potential for conflict, even a false flag, as well as bad economic news for the USA.
At the end, I will go over transits for Andrew McCabe, Trey Gowdy, and of course the USA as well as the Federal Reserve, China and Germany. Lots of discuss about the USA in particular.
On Sunday, Moon in Libra gives us two pleasant aspects today making it a good day for relationships and any one-to-one interactions.
On Monday, Monday morning is easy going with a smooth commute hour, but late morning in unpredictable and then a long Void of Course until the evening means it’s not a good day to start any projects.
On Tuesday, The intense energy of Moon in Scorpio in the morning quickly gives way to a very easy going feeling from Venus sextile Uranus. Love of freedom and independence. The best time to be with friends. Open to different people and new experiences. This evening is magical.
On Wednesday, Moon in Scorpio give us some challenges this morning with the Last Quarter Moon, but the afternoon and evening go a bit smoother.
On Thursday, Moon in Sagittarius brings a positive attitude, but Moon conjunct Mars late this evening brings strong emotions and a fighting spirit to the surface.
On Friday, Feeling lazy in the morning, but Moon in Sagittarius brings a positive attitude for the rest of the day. Good day for business. However, today starts two very contentious days for the USA. More about this at the end of the video.
On Saturday, Sun square Jupiter makes it another party day, just like last Saturday. Everyone wants to go to a party. And Venus enters Pisces today, bringing out our artistic side for the next month. Stark contrast to transits for the USA today.
On Sunday, Moon in Capricorn makes a calm, traditional day, time to attend to important matters.

Good day to meet a teacher, expose yourself to something new and exciting to stimulate the mind. We enjoy being surprised today and enjoy the company of people who are different from ourselves. Good time to be with friends and associates (Aquarius) and good time for relationships. Very easy to get along with your partner, one of those times when it seems you could do anything and your partner would be accepting. No rigid or frigid attitudes, very open minded. Relationships that start today are non-traditional. No one wants to conform to social norms, and no one wants to be hemmed in by another. Love of freedom and independence. Good time for abstract thinking, learning something new. In the natal chart, this aspect is the mark of a teacher.
8:38pm – Moon (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) Very dreamy and compassionate, more of the easy going feeling for the evening, perfect timing.
Moon in Scorpio give us some challenges this morning with the Last Quarter Moon, but the afternoon and evening go a bit smoother.
7:54am – Moon (Scorpio) square Sun (Aquarius). Last Quarter Moon. A challenge for fulfillment, you may feel forced to keep secrets in order to maintain the status quo, but secretly desire to reveal what you know. Competition and insecurities arise, causes tension. Use the energy to focus and strengthen your position.

12:32pm – Moon (Sagittarius) sextile Mercury (Aquarius) Early afternoon, good time for business meetings, communication flows well and the mind is sharp. Good time to promote your ideas, others are listening.
Sun square Jupiter makes it another party day, just like last Saturday. Everyone wants to go to a party. And Venus enters Pisces today, bringing out our artistic side for the next month. Stark contrast to transits for the USA today.
1:14am – Moon (Sagittarius) sextile Sun (Aquarius)
8:38am – Moon (Sagittarius) trine Uranus (Aries). Saturday morning feeling ambitious and desire independence. Do some yoga. Void of Course begins, continues until this evening. Not a good day to start projects.
3:20pm – Venus enters Pisces. Until March 6. This is a great time for artistic endeavors. Time to pull out the old sketch pad and start drawing. Music, painting, drawing, fabricating, whatever form your art takes, do that in earnest over the next month. Force yourself to create something artistic everyday. It may seem hard, but we must learn to appreciate the sacrifice (Pisces) that it takes to develop one’s artistic skill. That’s the best lesson we can all achieve during the coming month. We all need to have a relationship (Venus) with the infinite (Pisces) to help us address our fears. Nuance and delicacy is very important to develop in yourself now, Venus in Pisces is very perceptive, if you decide to tune in to the subtle vibrations you can pick up a lot more than usual, strong connection to the spirit world.
In Pisces, Venus feels connected to everyone, is compassionate, sensitive and forgiving of others, vulnerable, easy to persuade, and overlooks the bad side in others. Romance enters a idealistic phase as we seek a partner who understands everything about us including our need to connect with divine source.
Challenges we could face now, the biggest is disappointment, feeling let down when your ideal is not in keeping with reality. Also easy to absorb the energy of those around you, need to find sanctuary.
Also a must is to commune with nature. Venus rules Taurus, sextile to Pisces, so we seek a sensual (Venus) connection to the collective (Pisces). In astrology, Pisces is the fish, but it rules all animals in the sense that every animal represent another doorway into the collective unconscious (Pisces). Communing with nature and wild animals will help you develop that connection to the collective that we all seek now.
3:21pm – Sun (Aquarius) square Jupiter (Scorpio). Today our creative (Sun) power expands (Jupiter). We have more energy and more creativity. Folks have a pleasant disposition, generous attitude. Very social aspect, perfect for all social endeavors.
Just like last Saturday gave us Venus square Jupiter, this aspect is much the same, only even more creative and romantic (Sun). So, like one of my subscribes noted, it’s looks like a party zone. Desire to travel and explore and just do more. Good aspect to start a journey. It’s a good time to make romantic connections. Good for business, folks want to spend money. Poor judgment, tendency to be extravagant, flashy. Aspect really makes for the perfect party, everyone wants to go out and have fun and socialize.
6:21pm – Moon enters Capricorn. We need to attend to duty and responsibility for the next couple of days, what preserves you in the long run. Not as emotionally available during this time, can be pessimistic and rigid.
6:42pm – Moon (Capricorn) sextile Venus (Pisces) A warm, pleasant aspect on Saturday evening.
Moon in Capricorn makes a calm, traditional day, time to attend to important matters.
6:17am – Moon conjunct Saturn (Capricorn) Early morning Sunday is slow and cold, a time for therapy and introspection, not outgoing, need to attend to important matters. Strong need to re-structure ourselves. Follow the advice of the squirrel who says “What you sow is what you reap. Take care in choosing the seeds you are planting.”
9:09pm – Moon (Capricorn) sextile Neptune (Pisces) A wonderful aspect to finish the day, dreamy and sensitive, helps to reflect at the end of the week.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
Former Deputy Director of the FBI. Just got asked to resign, really he was fired, on 1/30. Notice first of all his natal Uranus sextile Neptune getting transits from Chiron and Uranus. Sudden (Uranus) and painful (Chiron) event in his life, swept up in a collective event. But the big transit is Pluto square Saturn. This transit is known to coincide with loosing your job. Pluto squares sever and Saturn is your career.
He’s decided to not seek re-election. Looking at his transits, I don’t have his exact birth time, but the closest transit is Uranus sextile Moon, so I adjusted his birth time to fit that, after all it’s a surprise (Uranus) event. This month, on 2/21, last pass of Neptune opposition Pluto. He has had an intense awakening and now he is letting go. No other major transits happening now, next year Saturn trines his planets in Virgo. He will likely re-enter the justice system next year. Or maybe later this year with Jupiter opposition Jupiter.
On 1/31, another story, “House Intel Committee Shocks the World, Votes to Release Controversial FISA Memo, Heads to Roll”. Happened on the same day as Mercury enters Aquarius, which promises openness (Aquarius) in politics (Mercury). A good sign that the FISA memo will be released. And a good reminder for the rest of us that Mercury in Aquarius has many good things in store for us as individuals. Our minds are working better now, more openness, better able to grasp abstract concepts, want to enlighten our minds, overcome rigid thinking that holds us back. Nonetheless, there is a serious battle to prevent that memo from seeing the light of day, but I think it will be released.
Neptune trine Sun at Trump’s State of the Union speech. It was pretty much all idealism and few specifics. Very much in alignment with general contentment that comes with Neptune trine Sun. He gave no hint of the serious problems for the USA on the horizon.
Coming up this week, on Friday 2/9, Mars opposition Uranus. Very ambitious and contentious. Looking for a fight. I recently found a source for the position of Chiron in the USA birth chart, it is at 20d08′ Aries. Which means at around this same date, the USA is getting Pluto square Chiron, a big ouch! This one has the potential for a false flag event. These transits have a strong potential for confrontation, including military action. But there is more which makes me think that if the USA tries a false flag they will be stopped. And there could be some fateful economic event that spells bad new for the US economy. This transit could also bring the release of the FISA memo.
Also coming up this weekend, Saturday 2/10, Saturn opposition Jupiter. This transit indicates a time of frustration, difficult achieving your goals, economic problems. Saturn limits the expansion of Jupiter, the result is you feel you can’t get anywhere. It’s a time of consolidation, reevaluating your goals to find the weak spots and correct them. Saturn is not just authority figures in the USA, it’s all over the world, the entire authority structure, which includes international banks. This transit indicates that international banks are ready to put limitations on the USA. I suspect the financial news for the USA will not be good this week.
So we have the basic elements of a false flag this upcoming weekend. And the economic problems only serve to give the dark forces in the USA even more urgency and therefore a reason to act now. I think the USA is going to get a reality check this week and maybe a false flag or at least an attempt at one.
On 2/17 South Node conjunct Midheaven, karmic moment. On the same day, Sun conjunct Mercury (Aquarius). On March 1, Mars opposition Mars.
On March 19, Pluto quincunx Mars, another potential false flag date. Concurrent Mercury and Venus opposition Saturn transit.
On April 18, last pass of Uranus square Pluto and there is a Sun conjunct Uranus on that day. The effect of the last pass will have a world wide effect.
So despite the idealistic tone of Trump’s State of the Union speech, there is a rough road ahead. Prepare yourself.
Neptune square Saturn, February 16, last pass. Although there will be 3 more passes of Neptune square Mercury. This is coming on the heals of Pluto opposition Mars and China indicating they’ll no longer buy US Treasuries to prop up the Federal Reserve, they are facing their biggest threat. Now at the last pass, the process of dissolving (Neptune) their status and reputation (Saturn) reaches a conclusion. This adds to Saturn opposition Jupiter for the USA and the idea that the USA is being controlled economically by outside forces.
Recently they had several major transits that have given them the good fortune to succeed in their long range plans. Coming this week on Wednesday, 2/7, the North Node crosses their natal Mars. More good fortune for them. I think they are going to initiate their plans and go ahead with their threat to no longer support the USA financial system. Complementary transit, Mars sextile Sun and followed by a whole bunch of good Mars transits. Coming the following week on 2/18, Jupiter sextile Jupiter which remains close until the second pass on March 29. A lot of financial growth for China coming up soon. February 2019, Pluto conjunct Jupiter.
Coming up this week on Friday, Saturn conjunct Uranus, first pass. Next passes June 29, Nov 11. Starting this week the German people are looking to restructure, re-evaluate, re-think (Saturn) what it means to be a German citizen. Uranus represents the notion of “We the People”. Uranus also represents the collective conscience of the people, the idea of democracy and equality amongst all citizens. While Saturn is your better judgment, your sober assessment of the situation. So the idea of what it means to be a German is being rewritten starting this week.
But change, ruled by Uranus, is inhibited. Despite a desire to revolt against the system, that is not possible now. Saturn puts too much inhibition on Uranus, which rules changes. So the people will have to change the system from within. And Saturn does not allow change for the sake of change, only real substantive changes will suffice. So, starting this week, the German people begin the challenge to restructure their society from within, by changing laws and authority figures.
Other transits on this Friday include Mercury square Pluto, Chiron trine Chiron and Uranus quincunx Mercury. Add these into to the mix and it looks like Germany is in for a tumultuous weekend just like the USA.
So, I hope this political news does not take the spirit out of the enjoyable, easy-going atmosphere coming this week. Find your tribe and become active in it. These sextiles to Uranus are the last good opportunity to manifest the Uranus in Aries energy, and must endeavor to find the intrinsic value in all people.
Unfortunately, I did not reach my goal last month, which was only $50. Undeterred, I have decided to raise my goal to $100 per month. It really does take a lot of my personal time to put these reports together and I need to start getting compensated for my efforts. I get no money in advertizing, Youtube will not allow me to monetize this channel. $1 per month is almost nothing to most folks, but collectively it would mean a lot to me and your donation would make it possible for me to continue putting out these reports, which I hope you find useful and informative.
You’ll find donation buttons for Patreon and Paypal in the lower right hand corner of the flower image on my channel home page.
And if you are looking for an astrologer for readings or monthly consultations, I am running a special this month, only $85 for a natal reading instead of the regular $120. I am also available for consultations on a regular monthly basis, using Astrology as a tool for Life Coaching, which is some of the most useful work that I do because the immediacy of the transit information can be put to use right away in your life, it’s a practical way to apply astrology, and it’s the same basic idea behind this channel.
In addition, I am a Reiki Master and I do long distance Reiki healing. If you are interested in what Reiki can do for you, want to explore the healing energy or would like to get a long distance healing, please contact me for Astrology and Reiki at firstname.lastname@example.org , or my weblog at http://www.tomsocalm.com, which is where I post the transcript of these weekly videos.
