The February 4th Aquarius New Moon conjoins Mercury and Black Moon Lilith. As discussed in this post:
“Here we have a new beginning that features information/communication about the dark lady.
BML in Aquarius is the taboo woman who does her own thing. She rebels against all the “shoulds” and makes most people uncomfortable because she is atypical…
In Aquarius, her outsider status is emphasized as is her tendency to draw people’s attention to uncomfortable but truthful subjects. Conjunct Mercury and this New Moon, we might expect a shot of disruptive clarity about a very uncomfortable subject.”
The above energy is supported by Jupiter in Sagittarius, so controversy and freedom should be delivered with relative ease. Nonetheless, remember that BML always has an uncomfortable message and some people simply do not react well to her.
Mars Square The Nodes
On February 9th Mars in Aries squares the South Node in Capricorn and North Node in Cancer. A square to the Nodes is a pivotal, troublesome issue. Mars is actions, anger and passion, so we can assume that the expression of these energies will bring you to a crossroads - stick with old, limiting rules (South Node) or move forward towards what feels right and honest (North Node). The Sun/BML conjunction on this day directly connects this to the New Moon themes, specifically the illumination of what’s different, uncomfortable and freeing.
Mercury and Juno
On February 10th, Mercury in Aquarius squares Juno in Taurus. The fixed partnership agreement (Juno) will be challenged by unusual details or requests (Mercury). Mercury enters Pisces and Juno enters Gemini on the same day and the disagreement will continue, although it will morph. Mercury in Pisces is ill-defined, intuitive and creative. Juno in Gemini is about multiple choices. These two will square each other again on March 24th and April 14th, as Mercury’s Rx in Pisces (March 5th) extends the discussion.
