Cancer Full Moon, Venus Conjunct Neptune, Saturn Aspect Retrograde Mercury
Venus is Exactly Conjunct Neptune on Sunday, February 1, @ 12 deg Aquarius. The planet of Entertainment conjunct the planet of Entrancement, on the day of the Super Bowl. This is also the planet of Agreement combined with the planet of Doubt & Suspicion, and can also be interpreted as the planet of Value conjunct planet of Confusion. This energy pattern continues to be strong for the first part of the week. Not a good week for finding compromise, coming to agreement, or making an important purchase.
The Full Moon will be on Tuesday, February 3, @ 20 deg Cancer. Although this is the Hindu lunar month of Makka, this year the culmination of the month's energy happens in Ashlesha, a sign known for being Cunning, Sneaky, and potentially, Poisonous (the image is A Coiled Snake). The Full Moon will be closely conjunct Retrograde Jupiter, which would magnify some of the "backwards" Jupiter energy, creating undependable conditions.
Saturn is in exact aspect to Retrograde Mercury on Thursday, February 5. Saturn throws its energy to the third sign ahead of itself (60 deg, sextile aspect in Western Astrology). Mercury, moving backwards, will be exactly positioned to receive this influence this week. Since Mercury is already disadvantaged by being retrograde, the addition of the influence of the planet of Restriction, Suffering, Obligation, etc., will create more problems for the planet of Communications, Ideas, Reasoning, Business, Equipment, this week. Watch out for possible internet problems, misunderstandings, transaction mistakes, equipment breakdowns, etc.
