00:00:02 [Amanda Pua Walsh] Welcome to the cosmic connection presented by Astrology Hub. I’m your host, Amanda Pua Walsh, founder of Astrology Hub here with master astrologer, Rick Merlin, Levine. This is your place to explore the order and beauty of the cosmos and your connection to it all. Well, welcome everybody. It’s so great to be here with all of you. And I am thrilled to be here with Rick Merlin Levine,

00:00:34 and we’re going to be diving into the February forecast

00:00:38 [Rick Merlin Levine] And I’m thrilled to be here with Amanda Pua Walsh. I mean, what, w w what a lucky guy I am,

00:00:45 [Amanda] You know, I, when I was preparing for this today, I was like, God, February already. Like, it seems like January just started and I don’t know about all of you,

00:00:57 but it seems like I’ve been in like the beginning of the year.

00:01:01 [Rick] Yeah. I’m still adjusting to the nineties being gone.

00:01:06 [Amanda] Perfect. All right. The theme that we explored last month for January was the beginning is here. I know we’re now going to be talking about how the tides are shifting a bit, and you’re saying that this will be somewhat of a kinder and gentler energy moving forward in February,

00:01:26 but don’t drive it. Don’t go yet. Don’t go there before we do that, before we do that, I wanted to give you an opportunity to talk about your upcoming event, that everybody is invited to.

00:01:38 [Rick] Well, everybody who’s in the Los Angeles area, although I think they’re going to be doing some virtual broadcasting at the event. Also, I’m the conscious life expo has been going on in LA for years.

00:01:51 It’s a huge event with, you know, a few hundred exhibitors and a couple of over a hundred speakers. And, and they’ve wanted for years to get an astrology track going, but it’s always been a bit marginalized. And so, you know, the regular, you know, past life regression and past lives and crystals and, and growth, potential,

00:02:15 and yoga and alternate history and UFO’s and all these fascinating things. But this year, first year ever, there’s going to be a full-on astrology track featuring yours truly. And, and all I can say is they have me working if you’re in the Los Angeles area, and this is going to be at the LAX Hilton at, at the Hilton, at the airport in Los Angeles,

00:02:43 consciouslife expo.com. It’s a full, the full catalog. Is there, they, I mean, they even have a Spanish speaking part of the program. It’s a huge program. I’ll be doing a lecture on Saturday in a panel discussion on Saturday afternoon with a couple of other astrologers, including David Palmer, Leo king on Saturday evening, they’re going to be doing a screening of the first episode of changing of the gods.

00:03:18 And then I’ll be leading a panel discussion after that on Sunday, I’m doing another lecture on reincarnation. And then on Monday after the event is over, I’ll be doing three segments. You can go to one, two, or all. Three of them. The program is online, it’s in depth. And if you’re in the LA area, it’ll be a lot of fun.

00:03:42 If you’re coming there from Astrology Hub, please come up to me, introduce yourself and say, ah, you know, Astrology Hub, and I’ll be extra nice to you. Or before we jump into the material, though, for today, I also wanted to mention that many of you know, that I had a bit of a Instagram disaster where my account was stolen and with,

00:04:06 and I couldn’t get help. And for months I went back and forth with them, or I should say I went forth, but I never got anything back. And eventually I just walked away from, you know, well, over 20,000 followers. And I started a brand new account with the same old name, because that name was free again. And so this is Rick Levine astrologer.

00:04:31 And at that site, or at that account, I write what some people call a daily horoscope. I’ve decided to change it. Cause it’s not really a horoscope. What it is is it’s a short astrological, muse, it’s a short astrological wandering or, or, or just some sort of a reflection, maybe the better, the better way of saying it.

00:04:56 And it’s every day, seven days a week. And it’s at Rick Levine astrologer. And because I, my following right now is so low. I implore everyone come and make me feel better. Follow me

00:05:08 [Amanda] Awe Follow Rick. Yes, we will. So Rick, will it be obvious the difference between the one that was hacked?

00:05:18 [Rick] It’s not there anymore. You can’t find it. It’s not going to be around. It’s not. Yeah. It’s just Rick Levine astrologer. There’s a video on it. That’s like a permanent real story, whatever you call it. That’s me basically saying it’s me. There’s no question about it. But it’s Rick Levine astrologer. I use Rick Levine astrologer also for my Facebook and,

00:05:42 and for other things. So it, it just works.

00:05:45 [Amanda] Okay, Go follow Rick on Instagram. If you’re on Instagram, just go do it. It’ll take two seconds. And then you’re going to get his daily astrological musings, which I love to tune into. I love

00:05:59 [Rick] It’s a combination. If you don’t have time, it’s just a graphic with like two or three words that just,

00:06:06 you know, just takes no reading at all. But if you want to do the deeper dive every day, you know, they run a couple of hundred words long and yeah, They’re super helpful.

00:06:17 [Amanda] Yes, they are fun. And isn’t it your photography that you feature on there too?

00:06:22 [Rick] Well, I do sometimes th the, the bottom line is,

00:06:25 is that I’ve been doing this long enough that I really kind of ran out. And, and so I do use my photographs on occasion these days, mostly they’re stock photographs though. That’s what I’ve, I’ve resorted to. And it’s, you know, like the, the difference of what it is every day is just, it’s like a daily horoscope, but it basically just says,

00:06:52 you know, here’s the key feature of the day. And here’s what we might want to do. I try always to take whatever the energy is, whether it’s positive or negative and give people something practical that they can bite into and use in their life. And then the other thing is every day I have a quote and I end every day’s column with a quote that’s relevant to what was going on.

00:07:16 And, and there are many people who say they follow me just to read the quotes

00:07:21 [Amanda] And there’s some great quotes on there. Okay. So everybody’s doing that now. And I also have one more announcement before we dive into February. We’re going to get there. I promise we are, we have a waitlist open for a new course that we’re doing with Christopher Renstrom astrologer and historian,

00:07:39 Christopher Renstrom, many of you know him and love him. The course is based on his book, the cosmic calendar. And it’s going to be an opportunity for you to learn from Christopher directly and take the content from that course and practically apply it to your life, which is basically taking your chart and the Astrology, and then mapping your year. So when is the best time to launch that business?

00:08:06 When is the best time for you personally, to get married, to, you know, finally finish your book, move, you know, whatever those things that you’re deciding about your life. And you’re looking at the year ahead, you’re going to be able to use your chart and then the actual Astrology, the transits and map the right timing for you.

00:08:26 So this is happening in March. We’re timing the course with the beginning of the astrological new year, which is the new moon, the Aries New Moon, but you can get on the wait list right now. So registration isn’t open yet, but I just want to let you know that it is coming and you can get on the wait list at AstrologyHub.com/CosmicWaitlist

00:08:48 [Rick] I had a fantastic coffee and a cup of soup with Christopher when I was in salt lake city. Yeah.

00:08:57 [Amanda] Recently?

00:08:58 [Rick] I migrate east coast trip on my way home. I was in salt lake city. And so we got together for a light, a light afternoon. It was less about the meal than it was just to connect. So

00:09:12 [Amanda] It would be really fun to have you and Christopher on something at some point together,

00:09:20 [Rick] I really adore Christopher’s work. And, and he is just so he’s so knowledgeable about certain slices of things that it’s just like, I’m in awe of what he moves. Yes, exactly.

00:09:33 [Amanda] All right. Well, that’s all coming up soon and let’s go into February now, bricks. So we had, again, the beginning of the year, your first theme of the year was the beginning is here,

00:09:46 which we had a chuckle about. I remember. And now you’re saying that the theme for February is kinder and gentler. So walk us through

00:09:56 [Rick] When you asked me, I actually wanted to say, it’s still beginning the beginning. Yeah. But it’s, it’s, there’s less turbulence right now. There is some stuff coming up. I mean, there’s some Rocky times.

00:10:11 We’re not, we’re far from done with whatever the last two years, you know, we’re, and, and I think that the, the end of January, which we can say is very, very, very early February where we, we end January with, with the new moon in Aquarius. That’s not a terribly easy new moon, the full moon,

00:10:40 which is in, which is in mid March, the full moon, I think is a lot, is a lot easier. It’s not a, it’s not a disastrous full, full moon. I think that’s on February. Yeah. February 16th, I think as of March before, but that full moon is, is, is, is a relatively saying full moon.

00:11:07 We’ll drill down on that in a little bit, but because February is so short February is I’m coining a new word, new moonless. Yeah. Because, because there’s a new moon on January 31st. And, and that means that January has two new moons in it because it had one on the first and one on the 31st. But the crazy thing is that March has two new moons in it also because the new moon that actually in some places on the planet will be late at night on February 28th.

00:11:50 And in most places, including Seattle and Hawaii, that, that new moon will actually occur on March 1st, which means that March has like January two new moons, which is kind of crazy. It’s poor February. Doesn’t get one after the revolution February, given that extra new moon again, to kind of make it so that there’s not haves and have nots.

00:12:21 So, so the, the beginning of February really starts off with this new moon that is the end of January. And the reason why this is so interesting and significant is that, you know, we for, well over a year, we’ve been talking about this ongoing Saturn Uranus square. Well, the Saturn Uranus square technically is over. Remember that was exact zero degree,

00:13:01 or, but it was exactly a 90 degree aspect on Christmas Eve or Christmas Eve Eve, depending on where you are in the planet. That’s done by February 1st, Saturn, which is moving direct now is at 15 degrees of Aquarius and Uranus is at 10 degrees of Taurus. What that means is that Aquarius, the Taurus is still in square, but now they’re separating from exact,

00:13:31 their orb is five degrees. And so five degrees, it’s still an aspect, but it’s certainly weakened compared to where it was when it was exact back in January of 2021, and then in mid June and then the end of December. And so what’s important though, is that the new moon that happens on January 31st and therefore on February 1st, the month opens with the sun and the moon,

00:14:08 still an Aquarius sun in Aquarius, but the moon having been a new moon the day before is also still in Aquarius and Saturn is right in the middle between the sun and the moon. And so what we have is because Uranus is at 10 degrees, that’s five degrees lower than the 15 degrees of, of Saturn, the moon and the sun, both square Uranus first,

00:14:37 and then they each can join Saturn. And so what we’re getting is the reverse. I talked about this last month, a little bit about how last year, because Uranus was at a, at a higher degree, Saturn was at the lower degree. We were basically having to get real pulled in, bump up against resistance and then Uranus would come and it would go breakthrough.

00:15:03 And now it’s happening in the other way. And it’s going to be interesting to see how this unfolds and the first chance we get to see this unfolding is at this new moon, because the moon about four hours prior to the new moon, the, the moon is square Uranus. This is like exciting breakthrough, something happening destabilization. We may see that in these last days of January,

00:15:35 we’re recording this at the end of January. So what’ll happen though, is that after the new moon, just a few hours after the new moon, the moon will catch up to Saturn and then we’ll have some resistance. We’ll have to make it real. We’ll have to pull in. And then a few days later, the sun will catch up with Saturn and that occurs on February 4th.

00:16:02 And so the sun’s alignment with Saturn is something real, something solid, something stable comes out of all of the craziness. It’ll be interesting to see what that is, whether it’s some sort of political agreement or whether things, you know, right now, it feels like several things on different fronts have fallen apart. Whether it’s the U S dealing with the Western Europe and us is dealing with Ukraine or so many other things.

00:16:32 It’s just that we might get some solidity out of this by somewhere around the fourth. Now, the other thing that is interesting here. So just let me just recap very quickly. This, this will come up again later in the month we have the sun squaring Uranus, on February. Let’s see if I can tell you that date.

00:16:55 Exactly. I’m sorry. On January 30th, the day before the, the new moon. And then we have the sun conjoining catching up with Saturn on February 4th. It’s now the difference between January 30th and February 4th. That’s like five days, five or six days of difference, where as back toward the end of last year, those things were hitting Saturn and Uranus within a few hours of each other,

00:17:23 because they were so close exact to being square. So that’s the first thing. The second thing is that we are in the midst of a retrograde direct shuffle that we’ve had Venus retrograde all last month, all of January pretty much. And it actually turns or turned direct on January 29th. Venus turns direct Mercury turns direct on February 3rd. So between within a week,

00:18:04 the last two holdouts remember last fall, last autumn in the north, in the Northern hemisphere, we had going from the slowest moving planet inward. We had Pluto retrograde, Neptune, retrograde, Uranus, retrograde, Saturn, retrograde, Jupiter, retrograde, all the heavyweights were retrograde. And one by one, they turned direct. Number of the outer planets go retrograde four or five months a year,

00:18:39 way more than let’s say mercury, which goes retrograde three times a year, but it only does it for three weeks each time. So it’s only like two and a half months of mercury retrograde every year, Venus, even less often because it’s retrograde lasts about 40 days. And it does that once. Not quite every other year at the point is that that Venus has already turned direct by February 1st.

00:19:13 And mercury is barely moving. So Venus and mercury, both having moved, both having changed or will be changing from retrograde to direct. And the fact that then for the rest of most of, of February, they will be going through places in the sky where they’ve already been, meaning w what we call the shadow, meaning the planets come through an area of sky.

00:19:45 They retrograde back over a certain area, which they’ve already done. And then when they turn directly to go over that area, a third and final time, this is why we say three strikes and you’re out. Yeah, I know it comes from, from a baseball, but the idea in astrology is that often things happen in threes because all the, all the real planets,

00:20:08 meaning mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, Eris, Chiron, all the, all the non satellites, all the, not the moon and not the sun. They all go retrograde. And if they go retrograde there at some point in time going to conjoin the microphone, and then they’re going to make a second conjunction with it as they go backward,

00:20:32 and then a third conjunction as they go forward. And this rhythm of having three times to get something right, is very important in astrology. Some people like with a Saturn return, they might have the Saturn return happened three times first direct, then retrograde and then direct again. And sometimes I’ve heard people go, oh, no, my Saturn return is,

00:20:57 is, is, is stretched over nine months because I’m getting a direct retrograde and direct and someone else says, yeah, well, I got lucky because I only had it once. Well, it might be just the opposite. And I want to say that because we have this phenomenon kicking right now. And when I say just the opposite, I mean that when a planet goes over a point retrogrades over that point again,

00:21:22 and then goes direct. It’s not like we get something awful happening three times. It’s like we get more time to deal with whatever the transition or change of phase actually is. So that, that first time is like a warning. We might respond to it. We might do a lot of work. The second time on the retrograde may be a lot easier if we actually have done the work.

00:21:44 Otherwise it’s like a wake-up call saying, Hey, you haven’t done this yet. And then on the third and final time through, if we’ve been in denial or sleeping through the whole thing, it can be really tough. However, if we’ve done the work, sometimes that third and final time is just like a confirmation of like, yep, you’re through this point.

00:22:02 So as these planets turned direct, they’re actually going to, each of them make a third and final conjunction with Pluto. That was the microphone because the sun last month came across the microphone and then mercury did, and Venus actually did first back in December, and then they all turned retrograde. And now we have this month, we have mercury having just lined up with Pluto direct.

00:22:34 I’m sorry, having just lined up with Pluto, retrograde mercury has now switched direction or will on the, on the third. And mercury will line up exactly with Pluto the third and final time on February 11th. And in fact, Venus, which is slower moving than mercury will line up with Pluto that third and final time, but not until March. And so the,

00:23:08 the weight of these planets going over Pluto again and again, and again, then I should say in March at the, at the new moon, at the beginning of March, not only is Venus lining up with Pluto, but Mars, which has moved into Capricorn Pluto’s in Capricorn. Mars is also there. And so we have a tremendous powerhouse of the start to,

00:23:32 to March, which we’ll save for next month talk right now. I just want to make sure everyone understands that when planets go over Pluto, in this case, the sun, the moon, mercury, Venus mercury, and Venus three times the third time coming up for each of them. And Mars only once at the beginning of March, all of this is about things that are hidden Pluto,

00:23:57 the underworld things that are unconscious, things that we’re in denial over, things that have to do with power and expression of power coming to the surface things coming up from the underworld, from the unconscious, the Phoenix, which is one of the archetypal representations of Pluto, you know, is a, is a magical bird that is born from the ashes of the ruins of destruction.

00:24:25 It has to burn down for the Phoenix to actually rise. And that Phoenix is a symbol of reincarnation, which happens after disincarnation or reconstruction, which happens after deconstruction that’s Pluto’s job. And so we’re in the midst of this period of time, as Pluto is approaching the end of Capricorn and has for a decade in, in this role of deconstruction right now,

00:24:53 perhaps getting some inklings of how this, this, this mess I’d come back together, do a little premature where around the ban.

00:25:04 [Amanda] Okay. Rick question for you on. So we’re going to be having the third pass over Pluto, Mercury and Venus Venus. Okay. So in your analogy of the Phoenix rising, would this be the period where we feel that rising?

00:25:21 Because it’s the third time? So we have like the breakdown, the transformation, and then the rising.

00:25:28 [Rick] Yes. Yeah. I say yes, but, but time is relative. And there are those people who have done enough work that they might’ve gotten that, that rebirthing beginning already. And this is then just a confirmation of it. But what you said in theory is,

00:25:44 is true. The third and final is like the finality on it. But, but even though mercury sweeps past Pluto the first week, what did I say on February 11th and Venus sweeps past Pluto, the third and final time, the first week of March Mars, which has not been in this mix, Mars, having just moved into Capricorn Mars in traditional astrology is dignified in Capricorn.

00:26:14 It’s exalted said to be exalted when Mars is not at home in Aries Mars, his favorite place to be is in Capricorn. Why? Because it finishes what it starts. And so with this conjunction at the new moon coming up, that I’m sorry. Yeah. At the, at the new moon coming up in March, we have Mars and Venus conjoining,

00:26:41 Pluto and stuff that has not come out is coming out. Things that are hidden, hidden power struggles. This is a power struggle. Pluto is a struggle for dominance because Pluto can be, can be ruthless. It it’s unstoppable. It’s that life tide that pushes us through birth and death in a process that regardless of what we do that lifetime is going to flow in its own way.

00:27:13 It cannot be stopped. I think of Pluto as like the beginning of a nuclear reaction. Once it started, you can’t stop it halfway. Once lightning begins to strike, you can’t stop it. It’s going to play through. And so we’re seeing this right now playing through this way. And incidentally, next January, February, March, there’ll be the last round of that playing through because Pluto will be at the very,

00:27:41 very, very end of Capricorn, just about ready to move into Aquarius. And so we’re, so we’re definitely feeling the edges of what’s coming, but we’re still not there.

00:27:55 [Amanda] Okay. Another question for you. So you say that Mars, conjoining, Pluto in Capricorn is going to happen around the new moon in March. Now I’ve heard astrologers say that when it’s Mars,

00:28:12 you feel the energy leading up to it. So in February, will we be feeling that energy yet? And then it sort of dies down after, in, in March.

00:28:25 [Rick] Yes, I, I remember back in December of, Ooh, I think it must’ve been 2018. When, when Saturn first moved into Capricorn, I was going around telling everyone Saturn only has one thing to do in Capricorn.

00:28:45 And it’s his meeting with the big guy, Pluto that’ll happen on January 12th, 2020. I would say that that Mars, which entered into Capricorn just a couple of days ago, that Mars only has one thing to do while he is in while it is in Capricorn. And that’s his meeting of Venus and Pluto simultaneously because as Mars is moving forward, Mars moves kind of similar speed,

00:29:17 a little, a little bit slower, but as similar speed to, to, to Venus and, and especially because Venus is going so slow right now, because it’s still coming out of this w under this retrograde. But what’s interesting is, is that Venus and Mars, the, the cosmic lovers, the, the archetype for creation and pro creation,

00:29:45 Venus and Mars come together while they’re lined up with Pluto, which intensifies deepens gives, gives power volatility and an incredible dynamic. And so, yes, all of February is like in some ways in preparation for the Pisces new moon, which actually occurs on March 2nd. And it’s, and it’s, it’s a very intense new moon because we have Venus, Mars and Pluto in Capricorn.

00:30:22 We also have a conjunction of mercury, which is direct mercury and Saturn in Aquarius, an exact conjunction on the day of the new moon. And the new moon in Pisces is conjunct Jupiter. Now, let me just break that down into English, just in a, in a sentence. And that is, we have this Capricorn deconstruction stuff happening and stuff coming out that no one ever knew or that we knew,

00:30:47 but we couldn’t say out loud, it’s like coming out of a decade or two where no one said the word cancer. I don’t mean the sign cancer, but, but if someone had cancer, it was just, they had a long illness because it was such a horrific word that you couldn’t say it out loud, that’s Pluto. And now Pluto’s coming out into the open with these direct planets moving across it.

00:31:10 At the same time, we have the mercury conjunct coming into conjunction with Saturn, which again, we’re going to feel as soon as mercury now, back in Capricorn, as soon as when mercury moves direct mercury actually will change signs and move into moves into Aquarius on Valentine’s day on February 14th. That’s an interesting thing. We might have more to say that on that in a little bit,

00:31:43 but mercury and Saturn together is authority. It’s, it’s holding back. It’s needing to deal with the truth needing to change our minds. If we’re wrong about something that mercury Saturn conjunction is is, is very constrictive. And then we have the new moon in Pisces that is not only conjunct Jupiter, but Neptune is there. And they’re all moving toward Neptune as is Jupiter moving toward Neptune.

00:32:14 It doesn’t get there until mid April, but this is a one in 14 year expansiveness dreams, imagination, Neptune become our opportunity. And so all of this is part of that process, but in February, we’re getting the feeling that there’s something that we’re building to something we’re not there yet. It’s, it’s relatively sailing. Now I say that, but there are so many things right now on the planet that are like Tinder boxes that any of them could be,

00:32:47 you know, set off into a, into a, a disaster if you will. But astrologically, it looks like we’re building things toward the beginning of March.

00:33:00 [Amanda] All right. So it’s the energy’s mounting, but it’s a little bit gentler in, in the amount of eruption or surprises or intensity, but we’re, we are moving towards a point. And that point is mainly this Mars,

00:33:19 Venus conjunction. I’m sorry, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn plus the Jupiter Neptune Pisces action. That’s all happening at that March 2nd new moon, Right?

00:33:32 [Rick] Well, the Jupiter Neptune is still eight degrees of orb. That’s not exact until April, but, but, but, but at that new moon, we have the sun and the moon and Jupiter and Neptune, all cohabitating,

00:33:48 all sharing Pisces energy, you know, and, and although, although there may be no surprises, that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any disruption. I I’ll just say the Ukraine, as, as an example, we don’t know what’s going to happen there, but we know, but, but if that turns into actual fighting on the ground for whatever period of time,

00:34:14 we’re not going to be surprised because it’s already building up. Right. I mean, hopefully we’ll figure out a way through it. And, you know, and, and, you know, I don’t want to say too much about that. Just that we don’t know what’s going to happen on some of these other events. And there are many of them,

00:34:31 many things like that, but, but I think that, that there is a crescendo in early March around these issues.

00:34:39 [Amanda] Can I ask you another question about this Mars, Venus? So you talked about Mars, Venus, Pluto, revealing things, hidden things coming to the surface. What else, how else would you interpret that exact kind of configuration? It seems kind of unique.

00:34:59 Is it that Mars, Venus and Pluto are all conjoining in Capricorn together?

00:35:04 [Rick] I mean, Mars catches up with Pluto once every other year, little bit less than that. This catches up with Pluto about once a year, but give or take, we’ll actually take it a little bit more than, than, than a year. And so the individual conjunctions of the inner planets and of any planet with Pluto are relatively,

00:35:27 you know, a regular event. But the inner planets and the sun moon, mercury Venus, Mars happen all the time. The fact that they’re happening at the same, that it makes it a triple conjunction is a bit more rare. And it’s also a bit more volatile because Pluto, Pluto is volatile. Pluto has that. The intensity, you know,

00:35:51 it’s like things under pressure, underground, Pluto is underground, you know, and it used to be that that wealthy people owned. What was underground diamonds, copper iron tin. I mean, the real wealth was not in imaginary money, but was in minerals that was underground. A plutocracy is a government by theoretically people who have stuff stored up underground because Pluto is that,

00:36:27 which is hidden. But we now relate Pluto. We we often think of Venus as it related to money. And in some ways it is it’s the money that buys nice things, you know, Venus it’s, you know, it’s money spent for pleasure if you will, but Pluto is real money. Pluto is the mass money. Pluto, Pluto,

00:36:49 you know, are the billionaires, you know, that club that’s that that’s the plutocracy. And so as Mars lines up with Pluto, I think of my old Astrology partner, buddy, Jeff jour used to say that when w when, when, when you were around Pluto and Mars together, you knew that you were in a nasty neighborhood because, because there’s a power struggle going on Mars,

00:37:19 you know, remember Mars in ancient astrology is a malefic. It doesn’t mean that it’s bad. It means that it’s difficult to manage. Saturn is a malefic. We have mercury lined up with Saturn or coming toward that by the end of February, beginning of March. And that Mars lining up with Pluto with Venus there, Venus theoretically should sweeten it. But what it really does is it intensifies our values that are going into the cauldron,

00:37:49 where they’re being under pressure under heat and pressure. They’re basically being forged into something new. If you think of an alloy like, like bronze, you know, bronze is bronze is made up of copper and tin, but once you melt copper and tin together, when it cools you, can’t melt it again and separate out the copper from the tin, the alloy hardens into something that’s very different.

00:38:18 And I think that when, when Venus the planet of values and Mars, the planet of, of, of aggression and assertion as they line up with Pluto, I think we’re going to see out in the open some power struggles that we’ve already seen they’re already, but things are going to become, I think, more visible as that, which was unseen,

00:38:41 Pluto becomes seen. And yes, I think that with Mars often we’re trigger happy. And I don’t mean that with, with, well, it can be, but I don’t mean it with respect to weaponry or guns. I mean that, where that we’re impulsive, we’re ready to react before it happens. However, Pluto is the icy cold, deep,

00:39:05 emotional it’s, it’s hard to say it’s emotional list because it’s also the most passionate, but it can hold that cold spot as long as it needs to, because of some emotion, you know, we, we take love or hate or fear, and we can take those, those energies that are so powerful. And with Pluto, we can drive them so deep that it looks like where,

00:39:31 like Saturn does that in a way to, when you think of a Saturn person as being cold and calculating. And in fact, they may seem that way, but they may be an absolutely warm heart and person that’s cold and calculating because they’re trying to get something done for their home, their family, their posterity, their, their tribe, whatever. So,

00:39:54 so yeah, this is going to be an interesting month because even with everything I’ve just said, although it builds to this crescendo around the new moon, which is also weird because we think of crescendos at the full moon and seeds at the new moon. So what is this seed, which is also a turning point going to plant, but coming back to February,

00:40:18 February is not March. February is a bit smoother and kinder, but it’s going toward somewhere. February has an agenda. Its agenda is March 2nd Will happen on March 2nd. But, but it suggests that things will happen around that period of time.

00:40:40 [Amanda] Okay. So let’s, let’s back up a little bit. That’s really clear what you just described. It let’s go to the new moon.

00:40:51 It actually, this is so funny, cause we can barely talk about February. Cause now we’re talking about the next new moon, which is actually in January

00:40:59 [Rick] And the current new moon, which was the last new moon, which was the end of January and the next new moon, which is the beginning of March.

00:41:07 [Amanda] Right? Exactly. Okay.

00:41:09 [Rick] February is in between and that’s what’s important here.

00:41:12 [Amanda] Yes. So the, the next new moon that’s happening, that is going to be the new moon that’s coloring the month of February. Although it’s happening in January, someone asked a question, I didn’t note the name, but if we were, if we work with the new moon and we’re setting intentions, do you have any guidance for the kinds of things that we can be planting for?

00:41:34 And can you remind us again, of the day and time of the new moon?

00:41:41 [Rick] I can. It’ll take me just a second to give you the exact time. I do have it right here in front of me. The new moon is. It is 9:46 PM on January 31st that’s Pacific time, which means technically that that new moon occurs on February 1st in New York city,

00:42:10 just 40 minutes into the new day. So this whole time zone thing is a little bit screwy here. It’s why we’re talking about the old new moon, even though for you in Hawaii. And for me in Seattle, that new moon occurs on the evening or night of January 31st, it kind of falls over into the following day for our friends in Europe.

00:42:35 They also get it on February 1st, rather than January 31st. But yes, that new moon will set the tone for the fortnight for the two weeks ahead, as it, as it grows into the full moon. And this new moon is conjunct Saturn. It has, it has just squared Uranus. So there’s instability coming into it, but by the time we get through it,

00:42:59 and we are talking here prior to this new moon. So even though, because this is a February report and we’re talking about January being in the past, we haven’t experienced this new moon yet, but one can imagine that there will be some stability, some improve ability, something that will endure. It might be as simple as two sides in a, in a potential military incursion that just stand off and go,

00:43:29 this, this is immovable. That would be a, you know, a sun and moon, a lunation new moon running into the wall of Saturn. Now I’m not saying that’ll happen. I’m just saying that’s a possibility. It also could be in some ways, because it’s following the square to Uranus. There could be some breakthrough that we don’t know about.

00:43:50 And some reality that, that I think of when the planets line up with Saturn, it, it’s almost like, like we think of rain as clouds of water that, that are precipitant that condense or crystallize into snow and come to earth. Well, when planets line up with Saturn, it’s like, it’s like Neptune nor the dreams of our, of our,

00:44:14 in our illusions in some way, , crystallized, precipitate to earth. So often when we have planets that line up with Saturn something, quote unquote, real occurs. Now it’s tricky because it doesn’t mean that what happens in the imagination is unreal. But when something happens in the three dimensional world, then we know it’s real. And so I think that that going into February,

00:44:38 we’re getting a taste of this reality. And yet it’s not at all a final dance is just the opening statement. The other thing incidentally is that at the new moon in March, we have mercury and I’m sorry we have Venus and Mars, which are on February 1st, are already in Capricorn on the new moon in March. Mars and Venus are lined, are lined up with Pluto,

00:45:11 Venus for the third and final time. That’s the new moon in March, but the new moon on January 31st or February 1st, that new moon in Aquarius that new moon has retrograde mercury lined up with Pluto. And so we’re getting somewhat of a kick of the same thing, two new moons in a row. This one intellectually, this one, mercury, this one information.

00:45:42 Whereas the Venus and Mars by by March is less about data or information than it is about how this is affecting people’s values, how it’s affecting their, their, their pocket books, how it’s affecting, where they’re going in life and what they’re doing. And it becomes more, what’s the right word, visceral. It becomes more palpable, more, more in the three-dimensional world.

00:46:06 So it’s interesting. There’s, there’s definitely continuity between the new moon at the beginning and end, or really at, just before the beginning and just after the end of February, but it does set the tone.

00:46:23 [Amanda] So would you say in terms of this Saturn influence that if someone was setting personal intentions for this new moon coming up on January 31st slash February 1st that creating a structure around their values and or grounding their values,

00:46:42 making them real and, or putting something that requires discipline into their intentions, would those be some good guiding principles for that

00:46:56 [Rick] Spoken as an astrologer!

00:46:59 [Amanda] Thanks

00:47:00 [Rick] Well said, I, I would add one thing to that though. And that is because the sun and the moon, whether it is a couple of hours before, or a few days before they both square Uranus that going into this,

00:47:16 we can have a bit more Wilder, more, more unconventional ideas about what we want to do. And yet at the moment of the new moon and the days after, until the joins Saturn on February 4th, that it’s almost like we have to take all the everything’s that we want to do and pair it back. It may be that we see in Congress,

00:47:44 for example, in the United States, there’s so many big things on the table that for, for political reasons, nothing’s going to happen with they’re stuck. We may see pieces of them all of a sudden come out and come and get passed through. As that Saturn says, make this real, but it has to pull back from the Uranus, crazy, everything idealistic.

00:48:11 It’s not just idealistic. It’s, it’s the potential of anything is possible with Uranus. And so, and so what you said is true, but there’s also, I think it’s helpful if we are setting intentions to consciously say, this is what I want, but this is what I’m going to focus on. And that this is what I’m going to focus on is a subset of what I want.

00:48:37 Because if you go for everything, that’s the Uranus, it’s still it’s, it’s going to, it’s going to have to eventually meet up with Saturn.

00:48:46 [Amanda] Perfect.

00:48:47 [Rick] So big picture In March. Well, some of this will happen in February where mercury moves into Aquarius and lines up with, with the sun. I’m sorry, lines up with Saturn in Aquarius.

00:48:59 And then Venus will line up with Saturn in Aquarius, and then Mars will line up with Saturn in Aquarius. So this is all around the bend. And so it’s almost like if we do Saturn’s work in advance rather than waiting to hit that wall, because we’re at a control, we’re better off accomplishing something real. That’s less than not accomplishing anything at all,

00:49:23 because we’ve gone off the road.

00:49:25 [Amanda] Ooh, I love this. So this foresight of all the Saturn action, that’s going to be coming in March. We can anticipate this. And so we can see the big picture and these innovative ideas and maybe wild ideas or things that you want to accomplish in your life. And we get foreshadowing of it when the sun conjoins Saturn on February 4th,

00:49:45 the other conjunctions of mercury, Venus and Mars to Saturn don’t happen until March. And I think maybe even April. Okay. So foreshadowing in the beginning of February and keeping in mind that Saturn will be activated again a lot in March and April. So knowing that, making your intentions realistic and, and putting some structure and pairing down or simplifying the big picture idea into manageable steps and not,

00:50:23 should we focus on that throughout February, then we’ll be ready Saturn in March and we won’t be blindsided like, oh God, you tried to,

00:50:31 [Rick] The table will be more ready rather than we’ll be ready.

00:50:35 [Amanda] Yeah, yeah, yeah. More ready. There you go. Okay. So anything else about February that we should have our eyes?

00:50:41 [Rick] Yeah. There’s a few dates that stand out with,

00:50:44 with, with, with, with strong occurrences on February 4th, we already talked about how mercury turns direct on the third and that, and that the sun catches up with Saturn on the fourth, but also on the fourth, Mars makes a sextile with Jupiter. So as the sun is restrained by Saturn, Mars and Jupiter are giving us some sense of enthusiasm,

00:51:09 some sense of going ahead to some sense of confidence, which may be false confidence, which certainly doesn’t have to be good, even though it’s the sextile. It could feed this idea that if we hold this position, everything’s gonna work out when the fact is that perhaps we should be, you know, negotiating on February 8th. We have a trying from Mars,

00:51:35 moving through Capricorn, making a trine with Uranus. I like this, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be smooth and easy. Mars makes a trine to Uranus and it actually makes a square to Chiron on the a couple of days before. And so here is some disruption where we have to deal with either physical limitations or something from the past that that is stopping us from getting to where we want to get to.

00:52:05 And then by the eighth, when Mars makes that trine to Uranus, there’s the sense of, of, of the freedom to be weird, to be different, to be innovative, to be, to make those breakthroughs that I think happened with great ease around around the eighth. We’ve already said around on the 11th is when mercury catches up with Pluto. It’s a time when we’re not satisfied with surface communication.

00:52:29 We want to go deep. We, we, we need to talk about those things that we don’t normally talk about because we’re afraid to, or because we think it might be disruptive. Mercury conjunct Pluto brings that stuff out into the open and in a way mercury, which just retrograde conjuncted Pluto at the end of January, really never gets very far away.

00:52:52 It only gets about three degrees away before it turns direct again on February 3rd. And then by the 11th is lined back up with Pluto. So that all is, is certainly plutonic on February 14th. We mentioned this mercury leaves Capricorn for the second time because it retrograded, it moved into Aquarius and then backed into Capricorn. Mercury moves back into Aquarius. Mercury likes being in CA in Aquarius it’s,

00:53:24 it’s quirky, it’s futuristic. It’s, it’s a bit dispassionate, especially with Saturn and the sun in Aquarius already. There’s that sense of intellectual conceptual breaking through old ideas? I think that that’s, and it’s on Valentine’s day. So it’s kind of interesting. It almost suggests that on Valentine’s day, that that even if you don’t have a love or a lover,

00:53:57 that it’s a good day to hang out with friends because mercury in Aquarius is very much oriented toward friends Aquarius in some way. It, you know, as the sign of the Eleventh House really has to do with relationships that are equal, which are friends, you know, a often, a historically at least, you know, a romantic relationship, a male and female is not equal.

00:54:23 There’s, there’s a dominant and a submissive. And of course, historically with the patriarchy patriarchy that we’re coming out of, it was the male that was dominant. And the female that was submissive, part of what’s going on on a larger scale is that that energy is changing into friendship. I mean, historically in the early 20th, 19th, 18th century,

00:54:49 the idea of being a friend with your husband or wife was crazy that husband, wife relationship was something unto itself, but you wouldn’t necessarily be a friend with a lover and that has changed and that’s the Aquarius energy. And when mercury moves into Aquarius on February 14th on Valentine’s day, it makes an interesting statement. And by the way, Venus and Mars will both move into Aquarius in,

00:55:15 in March, on February 16th on the day of the full moon on February 16th. And we talked about this full moon very, very briefly, but on the date that that full moon is in late Leo it’s at 28 degrees of, of Leo opposing the sun, that 28 degrees of Aquarius. But on that day is the exact Venus Mars conjunction. They, that Venus Mars conjunction is about creativity.

00:55:52 It certainly feeds the idea of love. And, and so even on Valentine’s day, we have that Venus and Mars close together. This is the dance between, between our sense of values, our sense of beauty of Venus, our sense of, of aesthetic perfection and Mars. How are we going to get there? What are we going to do to make it happen?

00:56:14 And this is really Venus, Mars. Conjunctions are in, at least from one perspective are the most creative aspect. I think that one can have. And then we, of course, we have that full moon on the 16th. That is really the dilemma between personal love. I love you moon and Leo, the IMY mind part of love the Leo part and the Aquarius,

00:56:41 the, the, the collective, the community, the global. And so here we struggle with a little bit of where is our place in the larger scheme of things. Another thing that happens in this period of time, exact on the 17th, but it’s slow moving is that Jupiter and 10, almost 11 degrees of Pisces is making a sex tile with Uranus.

00:57:07 This is a slower moving aspect. It pretty much is in play for most of the month. And it’s opening. I don’t mean it’s an opening aspect. I mean, the energy, the energy is an opening energy. There’s, there’s that line that is sometimes attributed to Frank Zappa. And he did say it is that a mind is like a parachute.

00:57:31 You know, it doesn’t function when it’s closed. And in a way this Jupiter sextile Uranus is like, it’s, it’s like an intellectual, mental aha experience where lightning strikes that would be Uranus. The great awakener and Jupiter is in Pisces. And so we’re getting a spiritual energy here. We’re getting something out of compassion. And I like this aspect a lot,

00:57:57 and it will be exact on February 17th, but we’ll be feeling it for days before and days. After on the February 18th, we have the sun that moves from Aquarius into Pisces, and it does it on the 18th in the morning. And the sun’s movement into Pisces is really a shift of energy because now we have the sun and Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces,

00:58:30 and eventually we’ll have mercury and Venus and Mars all sweeping through that area too. And this is certainly more of an emotional, a spiritual, it can be delusional as we move closer toward the mid April Jupiter Neptune conjunction. This is a conjunction of hope and of potential and of possibility, but it’s also a conjunction where we can take our fantasies and think everything’s going to be okay when it’s not.

00:58:58 So we have to watch that line between fantasy and reality, February 23rd, we have Mars making it’s sextile to Neptune. Again, this feeds fantasies. This is the ability to take our physical energy Mars and change it based upon our imagination and the fantasy. I mean, it’s a great day for a costume party, wrong time a year. I get maybe wrong time of wrong year in the larger scheme of things for parties,

00:59:29 anyhow, but that Mars sextile Neptune is about imagination dreams on February 23rd, which is actually a busy day. We also have Jupiter making a half square to Pluto. Now this is, these are subtle because they’re longer lasting, but Jupiter is that opportunity. It’s the potential and Pluto is we’re back to that, that stuff. That’s, that’s really, really deep.

00:59:56 And so I think that the agitation of a half square from Jupiter to Pluto on the 23rd give or take a few days can bring some things, not only bring things out into the open, but they become like balloons where we can then watch them fly and actually then be inspired by them and have them elevate us. One last thing I want to mention with just specific aspects as we get toward the end of the month,

01:00:24 there’s also a series of sextiles. I don’t want to break them down individually, but it’s again, a little bit smoother energy, but on February 24th, we have mercury and, and that would be mercury. Having moved into Aquarius on the 24th, mercury makes an exact square with Uranus. Now we don’t see it this month, but what that means is that the Uranus and Saturn are now seven degrees apart.

01:01:00 So their orb is widening still. And so mercury at 11 degrees of Aquarius makes a square with Uranus. This is, again, this is unstable. It’s exciting. It’s breakthrough, it’s new, it’s learning something new, but it’s disruptive. Uranus is certainly disruptive, and that is unfair. February 24th, mercury continues to move forward. And by March 2nd, it’s lined up with Saturn.

01:01:32 We talked about that because that’s the new moon, but again, we’re seeing a planet lining up with Saturn after having squared Uranus. And this is bringing up those same energies that have been in place since last January, February, where we have a bifurcation of two different ways of looking at the universe, politics, disease, vaccines. So many things where we’re getting the Saturn Uranus square,

01:02:02 and we’re getting another run on this that comes to a culmination. And at the, at the new moon in Pisces, that pretty much takes us through the month. There’s always more things, but I tried to pick out the dates that we might want to make a note in our day timer. And of course, as we move through the month, you’re wonderful guides for the inner circle.

01:02:26 We’ll help detail this week by week by week. I always try to give, you know, the overview of the broad vision.

01:02:35 [Amanda] It’s so good. So Rick, you just brought up this, the Saturn Uranus square energy that we’ve been working with for at least a year, and that some of these issues that seem like we can’t meet on that, they’re going to be activated again,

01:02:54 but this time with Uranus happening first and then Saturn,

01:02:59 [Rick] That’s correct because because Saturn moves faster and Saturn has caught up to the square. Now it’s moved past it. So, so Uranus is at a lower degree. So that means that once a week, the moon is going to hit the degree of Uranus by conjunction square or opposition. And then, and then I,

01:03:22 half a day later, it’s going to hit the conjunction square or opposition to Saturn. In other words, these things become patterns that we almost don’t notice them because they’re the same pattern that we have going on on a grand scale. Now we have it going on on a minuscule scale. Even the ascendant changing through all the signs once every 24 hours. That means that four times in 24 hours,

01:03:51 the ascendant will conjuncture square or oppose Uranus. And then just a few minutes later, we’ll square conjunct or oppose Saturn. Wow. So it’s that same thing again. And again, and one last thing I want to mention here, cause I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before. It’s actually something that I don’t think I really thought about in this way until I completed,

01:04:14 I watched the 10 episodes of a changing of the gods, which is being released in February. And I know you have an interview with Rick Tarnas and, and a whole thing unfolding on that, but what dawned on me and it’s kind of stated in episode 10 and, and it’s like, yeah, I knew that, but I never quite thought of it that way.

01:04:38 And that is, you know, back in 2012 to 2015, we had the Uranus squaring Pluto. That was the opening square from the Uranus conjoined Pluto, like a new moon back in the mid sixties. So this is a large thing about what about what this 10 episode documentary is about is the, is the new moon phase. In other words, the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the mid sixties and then their square exactly from 2012 to 2015,

01:05:14 but these slow moving world transits last for way longer than a natal transit might. And so even though the exact Uranus square Pluto, even though the exact of that was Southern times between 2012 to 2015, we’re still in the, in, in, in the ripples that have flow flowed out from those events. And even though the aspect is far from square right now,

01:05:44 we’re talking Uranus Pluto. In in fact, it’s actually approaching a trine, but, but here’s the thing it’s, if you can think of, of Saturn as the sweep second hand, normally we think of Saturn as one of the slowest moving hands on the clock, almost like an hour hand, especially related to the sun and the moon and the inner planets.

01:06:09 But if you think of the slow moving Uranus and Pluto, and you think of Saturn coming through that square Saturn first lined up with Pluto and then squared Uranus Uranus moves faster. So Uranus has separated from that square. All of a sudden we realize that this Uranus Pluto, I’m sorry, all of a sudden we realize this Saturn Uranus square doesn’t exist in a vacuum.

01:06:41 It’s actually Saturn doing the final round of cleanup after the Uranus Pluto square Uranus square Pluto. They’ve widened now almost into a trine, but Saturn coming through it lines up with Pluto and squares Uranus, even though it’s wider than that square, it’s basically tying up the loose ends and giving stability to all the changes that were in our face through the particularly 2012 to 2015,

01:07:11 but through the whole 2010s period.

01:07:14 [Amanda] Wow. That is an interesting perspective. I mean, I I’ve been thinking of the sat on your new squares as like a standalone. Yeah. Wow. Fascinating. Okay. So we have a, a interesting month in that it’s, it’s feels distinctly different than the months that we’ve been having recently. This is the first time I’ve been able to say in a long time that it’s looking like a kinder and gentler month.

01:07:41 Some of the things that you, some highlights or just some like key phrases that really jumped out at me that you said, I mean, we have this, we have Venus and mercury going direct. This is there. The final holdouts from all the planets that have been retrograde since the fall of

01:08:00 [Rick] Which means that for most, most of February, even though Venus and,

01:08:05 and, and mercury start off moving direct slowly that for most of February and all of March, everything is moving direct,

01:08:13 [Amanda] Which is amazing too. We haven’t experienced that for awhile. So having all this forward motion this forward moving energy, you said that this month is, is a building month.

01:08:26 [Rick] It’s building towards something To a crescendo,

01:08:29 [Amanda] Right. Building to a crescendo. So keeping Saturnian things in mind as we’re building is, could be a really wise way to use the Astrology to format what we’re doing or structure what we’re doing. We’re building towards something. There’s also going to be this value, our values under pressure. And I think that you were, you were speaking more towards what’s going to happen March 2nd with Venus,

01:08:57 but we’re building towards that. So getting clear on what your values are and seeing that these values are getting sort of forged in the fires and Potentially Turned into something very new and, and having a very new expression of what those values are. This process of getting very clear on that.

01:09:19 [Rick] Bronze has no properties in common with copper or tin, tin, and copper are totally malleable,

01:09:27 you mix them together and bronze becomes hardened so that it lasts. That’s the important of importance in the bronze age, why it was such a big deal. It’s also incidentally, you know, there’s no one to one ratio of metals to planet or one-to-one correspondence so that the sun is gold. And the moon is silver. Mercury is mercury. Venus has copper.

01:09:51 Mars is iron. Jupiter is tin and Saturn is led well, here’s the crazy thing is that the Romans would have never gone all the way to England and basically conquered Europe along the way, and England, and built all the roads through that. The reason why they went to England was they got copper Cupers in Latin from the island of copper, which is Cyprus.

01:10:18 Cyprus is Cupers Cyprus is the island of copper. In fact, the mythology is that Venus was born of the waves as they, as Saturn inseminated the ocean with his sperm, as the waves washing on the shore of Cyprus, that’s where Venus was born copper, but they couldn’t get tin locally and, and tin, which is ruled by Jupiter. They had to go far away Jupiter to get it,

01:10:50 which is why they had to conquer England because England has huge reserves and minds of 10. Which they needed to make. bronze.

01:10:59 [Amanda] Wow. Very interesting. Off the track a bit, but an interesting, I love it. Oh yeah. Great tidbit for us. Okay. So this is also going to be a time where more of the power struggles are coming out into the open.

01:11:15 There could be. Let’s see.

01:11:17 [Rick] As they began to, even in late December when Venus first conjoined Pluto, before he went retrograde.

01:11:27 [Amanda] Okay. All right. And I mean, it’s basically this, this idea of, of building towards this crescendo. I mean, you, again, you were the one who said in 2019 that the most important event of 2019 was the Saturn Pluto conjunction of 2020.

01:11:47 I feel like you’re saying something very similar right now, the most important event of February or March we’re in that preparation mode and getting glimpses into what that could be about and just staying focused on the things that we can do in our lives that are aligned with our values that have some discipline and structure and like form are important things to do.

01:12:14 [Rick] You know, it’s even worse than that. It’s not only as the most important event in of, of February, on March 2nd, but the most important event at the beginning of February is actually on January 31st. You’re going to have to change my contract and allow me to talk about more before,

01:12:37 I mean, you’re not going to get in trouble for that. You, you had to go there. Yeah. If you’re new to this and you’re like, what are they talking about? Rick always makes the joke that according to his contract, he can only talk about the actual month ahead that he’s not allowed to talk about the months after, which is of course not true,

01:12:54 but we get a laugh about it every time. All right. Thanks everybody so much for being here, Rick, thank you for getting us prepared for this month.
