Everything you need to know about the Earth opening up and swallowing your planets or the other way around.
Horoscopes by Corina Dross
Welcome to the complex uncertainty of time. From our perspective here on Earth, planets and luminaries sweep around us in arcs of varying speeds, some visible to the eye and some lost in the obscurity of space. ¶ Astrology is not a science of fate or law: through it we create meaning collaboratively. Horoscopes offer a fuzzier focus – a weather forecast for our collective energies and passions. The astro-literate would do well to read their rising signs first, followed by their Sun and Moon signs.
In February many of the dramatic patterns from last month continue: collectively we’re all alert to sudden changes that shift power and reveal dark secrets (the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square) and we’ll be spending a few more months with the planet of aggression and defense operating behind the scenes (Mars in Libra). This month Mercury goes retrograde while edging up against Neptune, the planet of confusion, dream states, and mythic longing. Expect the normal miscommunications and travel delays during the retrograde cycle (February 6–28) to be tinged with an otherworldly, underwater quality. Let’s pay attention to our dreams, and not be too surprised if our cellphones jump out of our pockets and into the nearest river.
The ecstasy of going into the ocean, into the skies, into the rock core of the earth, into the ice is a pleasure radically different from the contentment that simmers over possessions…You will be adrift in the immensities and sublimities of reality.
