The pressure of the daily grind may become unbearable or the boredom just too much when erratic Uranus opposes hardworking Saturn on February 5— the second of five such oppositions in a long-term pattern that began on November 4, 20013, and will last through July 2014. This may not be the right time to push for change, for if you’re too forceful, you could upset the apple cart instead of simply redirecting it. You might make progress toward your dreams, yet you’ll find it challenging to put your gains into perspective by the end of the month: Mars creates tense aspects with powerful Pluto and austere Saturn on February 27–28.
Key Dates for Aries Feb 2014
You’ll find it difficult to avoid sudden change as the Saturn-Uranus opposition brings irrepressible desires up from the depths of your imagination into your awareness. Meanwhile, innocent Venus dynamically squares dark Pluto in an emotional struggle for survival. You might feel overwhelmed with despair and believe that your intense needs cannot be satisfied. Avoid acting from desperation, for you may be on the edge of a real breakthrough. Although it might seem otherwise, this is not an all-or-nothing situation. Let yourself feel the extremes without being attached to the outcome.
The dramatic Leo Full Moon Eclipse in your 5th House of Romance on February 9 opposes imaginative Neptune and wounded Chiron, destabilizing your love life and provoking you to overreact from a place of fear. But you have an opportunity to heal an old emotional scar if you understand the difference between what happened in the past and what’s occurring now. You can experience a deepening of love by being true to your heart while remaining open to change. This will, however, take concentrated focus as impulsive Mars moves toward stressful aspects with the already tense Saturn-Uranus opposition through February 12. Things can get out of hand rather quickly if you act rashly.
Pisces New Moon can signal a need to readjust your goals and soften your grip on the steering wheel of life. Fortunately, this isn’t necessarily difficult now as intellectual Mercury conjuncts jolly Jupiter in quirky Aquarius, blessing you with irrepressible hope for a bright future. Even if you don’t have a specific plan, you know that everything will work out for the best. Just remember that overconfidence can easily lead to arrogance, possibly stirring up opposition from those who would be better allies than enemies.
