February, although not a particularly dramatic month, is quite feisty with plenty of squares and inharmonious alignments. It is likely, therefore, that we might begin the month feeling a bit edgy unless we make time to get in touch with our feelings and work through them.
As the world comes out of a defining year of consciousness, this month reveals some important clues as to which way the wheel turned from last year. Turmoil, terror, and tempestuous childish resistance seem to be the reactions of the established but faltering manipulators of the night.
February 2016 is a powerful bridge of energy between past and future, before and after, old and new. This is an opportunity to let go of old emotional fears, attachments, limitations, and choices that no longer serve the individual or the collective.
As the new year gets off to a start, unresolved conflicts from last year between the forces of duality struggling on Earth can fester to an elevated height. As light shines on darkness, those of dark intent become more desperate. Desperate people do desperate things.
All human beings have a natural instinct to wish for well-being in the present and future. Many look to astrology to determine the unfolding of something unknown. The planetary positions discussed here obey the sidereal zodiac followed in Vedic astrology.
Jupiter, the planet of benevolence and expansion, makes its visit in Virgo from August 2015 through September 2016. There is also a plus-three-months influence at the end of a Jupiter transit, so the energy of Jupiter in Virgo runs straight through 2016.
