The week is filled with a variety of aspects, both challenging and enabling. This makes for a dynamic blend that pushes and supports you - just what you need to get things done. These aspects are so close together that they'll work as one influence.
February 3rd sees a sextile from Mars in Scorpio to Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) in Capricorn, which will emphasize Mars’ mission to take the most effective, authentic actions. Mercury in Capricorn sextiles Chiron in Pisces. Chiron adds empathy to Mercury’s focused agenda, while Mercury allows Chiron a vocal outlet. In other words, you can talk about what's troubling you. The Aquarian Sun sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius, suggesting that freedom and change can be constructively focused.
On February 5th, Venus in Capricorn conjoins Pluto, then squares Uranus in Aries on February 6th. Venus themes (money, relationships, values) will be intensified and clarified. What you want will be unmistakable, and in some cases, the truth behind this may be disruptive. Mars also makes a tough inconjunct to Uranus on February 5th, adding abrupt actions to the mix. You may be surprised at what you'll do to make something happen, especially since Mars is still feeling the intensified boost of purpose from the Pluto sextile.
February 6th also sees a supportive trine between Mercury in Capricorn and Jupiter Rx/the North Node in Virgo, enhancing the tremendous opportunity that this North Node offers. As the path forward in a Mercury-ruled sign, the North Node's emphasis on crucial ideas made real (Capricorn/Virgo) is undeniable. Jupiter is there to ensure that what you say/learn will have a broader impact, and will carry you far (if you want it to).
February 6th also sees a sextile between the Aquarian Sun and Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) enhancing the drive for individuality. Remembering that the Sun was also sextiling Saturn, this is the ideal mix of structure and change. But the February 7th square between the Sun and Mars adds resistance to restrictive circumstances. But also, increased drive to get things done. The Sun/Mars square will be a feature of the February 8th New Moon in Aquarius, which I'll write a separate post about.
