EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN AQUARIUS FEB. 6-26TH
Mercury moves into Aquarius on Wednesday February 6 at 23:40 EST, and is weak in degrees for a day on Feb. 6-7TH on the day ruled by Mercury creating more nervousness, worry, out-of-step thinking or being stuck in small details. The transit this month a bit afflicted as Mercury gets hit by Saturn in aspect on February 20-1 TH The orb of difficult influence is Feb. 18-21st creating communications problems and scattered thinking but for some it may create very deep thinking.
Aquarius is one of the more karmic signs of the zodiac as it ruled by Saturn and Rahu and it can bring up deep suffering in its darker moments but can tend toward great technological advancement, healing and deep philosophical and astrological probings.
The Saturn aspect on Mercury into Feb. 20-21st creates loss of the big picture, obsessive behavior, being too detailed, being stubborn, distracted and minor depression. The Cobra pose helps balance Mercury and the plank pose can energize Mercury and help it though this energy Feb. 18-22nd when this impact is strongest. Meditation will help focus and keep you from being scattered or negative thinking. Even a shoulder stand may help get you out of a troubled head but of course do these poses with the care and aid of a good yoga instructor if you do not know them. Definitely a month to stay on top of your meditation routine.
As Mercury moves farther away from Saturn, it will increase in power. Let’s say it’s a complicated month for Virgo and Gemini rising signs and Gemini moons and people if you have a lot of malefic natal chart planets in Aquarius like Rahu, Saturn, Mars or Ketu. For Gemini it is a 9th house transit support spirituality, foreign travel and for Virgos its it is 6th house transit which may bring up disputes and minor illness and problems with co-workers.
Stay on top of computers and electronics this month with so many influences on Mercury and Aquarius and make sure to be redundant with communications as you may be misunderstood at times during the month causing problems.
