There is a lot of astrological activity in Capricorn this month. From February 9th to the 11th there are seven planets in Capricorn, including the outer planet Pluto.
When Mercury retrogrades back into Capricorn on February 4th there will be six planets in Capricorn: Saturn, Jupiter, Sun, Mercury (retrograde), Venus and Pluto. The Moon joins them February 9 - 11 and the new moon takes place in the last degree of Capricorn on the 11th. This makes seven planets, including the outer planet Pluto, in the sign of Capricorn. Pluto is considered a planet in Western astrology and can be helpful as an extra consideration within Vedic astrology as well.
This month is a very important time. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is the planet of consequences and accountability. It is an unusually intense conglomeration of planets in Capricorn and this energy will stay with us for some time.
The outer planet Uranus is with Mars in Aries and holds the potential for rebellion against Capricorn’s restrictive energy.
The moon moves through the zodiac in 28 days and temporarily breaks the Kal Sarpa every two weeks. The time of actual Kal Sarpa is:
This particular Kal Sarpa yoga ends when Mars moves past Rahu in Taurus on March 28.
The planets slowly shift beginning mid-February. The Sun moves into Aquarius on February 12th and Venus moves into Aquarius on February 20th. Mercury ends his retrograde and moves direct on February 20th as well. Mars joins Rahu in Taurus on February 21st.
Four planets are in Shravana nakshatra, situated in Capricorn, between February 10th and February 14th: Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mercury (retrograde).
Shravana nakshatra holds the capacity to restore order and balance by re-establishing the highest ideal as a priority.
Shravana is ruled by the Moon and is in a sign ruled by Saturn. The Moon/Saturn combination suggests the potential for inner growth and higher knowledge. However, in order to meet this potential we need to develop equilibrium and detachment.
Shravana is symbolized by an ear. Shravana means hearing and is a nakshatra of silence. Shravana indicates a need for quiet and reflection.
Now is an especially good time for meditating, tuning into higher guidance, and listening to your intuition.
