February has no full moon! Instead, we'll have one solar eclipse, coming midmonth on the 15th at 4:05PM in Aquarius, the first solar eclipse (of 3) for 2018. This eclipse can help us to focus on the future, our dreams for what it would be like, and what we hope for in our lives and for the world. We can work on coming together and trying to work together for a common cause and purpose, and try to have an impact on the world. It's not about one, it's about all, and finding our place in the world. We can work well with friends, and groups can accomplish a lot, and we can push for the causes that we're passionate about and believe in.
We can be more independent, innovative, and focused on originality and uniqueness. We can be open to what's different and unconventional, step outside of our comfort zones and push boundaries that need to be challenged. We don't need to keep things as they've always been. Change can be a good thing, and we can embrace that. We can focus on the new, the different, the strange, and we can see the good that can come from that. We can unlock new possibilities by broadening our perspectives and being more objective. And we can be true to our individual selves while still finding a way to come together and leave room for other ways of being.
The eclipse is sextile (positive aspect, two signs away) the ruler of Aquarius, Uranus (in Aries), so that helps to amplify the energy and use it well. The eclipse is conjunct (aligned with) Mercury in Aquarius, stimulating our minds, increasing communication and ideas, helping us think more about the future and think outside of the box, and we can be more engaging and open. The eclipse is also square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) Jupiter in Scorpio, so we may be excessive at times, feel a little too good at times, and think a little too big at times, so we may need to keep ourselves from letting things expand too much too fast.
