Astrology for Healers and Therapists – February 2021

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations. That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive. Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding. The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory. If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in February when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day. Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one. It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month. Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

Things really seemed to get stuck last month.  There was little thought but much reactive intransigence.  If you discounted the Moon’s aspects at the end of the month then it only left red challenge lines for that last week.  However this coming month shows signs of easing up – at last.

The week beginning the 7th February

Again it looks as if there are only red lines of challenge but at least Mercury and Venus are now aspected.  Venus has moved into Aquarius, and that conjunction is aspected with Uranus, leaving Pluto still out in the cold.  Uranus and Mars are no longer conjunct.  Mercury is aspected with Mars and the Sun.

Cardinal 1 – Fixed 7 – Mutable 2

Fire 1 – Earth 3 – Air 5 – Water 1

Fixed has gained a sign from Cardinal whilst Air has gained a sign, Fire has gained one and Earth has lost two.  

Some rational thinking should be apparent this week, especially if it is a matter of challenging past week’s thinking and stance.  However there is still little evidence of things moving forwards.

Counsellors – Don’t give up.  Don’t commit suicide.  It just isn’t your fault if you are banging your head against a brick wall.  Things will move again in a couple of weeks.

Healers – Everything seems to be compartmentalised at the moment with little energy exchange.  However despite the almost static state of play there is a stability that can be used as a base to work from.

The week beginning 14th February

Pluto is now aspected with Mars as well as with the Moon with two lines of ease.  Neptune has also formed a line of ease with Mars.

Cardinal 1 – Fixed 7 – Mutable 2

Fire 0 – Earth 3 – Air 5 – Water 2

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Water has gained a sign from Fire.

The first signs of change are there, but will probably be more as a thought experiment rather than actual steps taken at this stage.  However they are strongly felt so something is going to give soon.

Counsellors –Small steps are a distinct possibility this week, but again more as a dream or daydream rather than actual action taken.

Healers –– Lots of promise but little to show for any effort put into a situation.  It is a matter of inertia that stops progress in its tracks.

The week beginning 21st February

Neptune has lost its line of ease and quickly appears to be unaspected during the week.  The Sun has moved into Pisces but is unaspected.  Venus loses its challenge with Uranus but forms one with Mars.  The planets in Aquarius are beginning to move apart.  Mercury appears stationary in the heavens.

Cardinal 1 – Fixed 6 – Mutable 3

Fire 0 – Earth 3 – Air 5– Water 2

Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable but there is no change to the Elemental scene.  

It is definitely a case of holding your breath, for movement is assured but in what direction?  It is almost a situation where any actual step might jeopardise progress, so nobody is prepared to chance it.

Counsellors – If you push this week you will harm the relationship and it will be your fault.  Go at the Client’s pace.

Healers – At long last you can make a substantial difference as patients begin to respond.  Not huge steps but steps they actually will be.

The week beginning 28th February 

The Sun is now aspected with Uranus and Venus is weakly conjunct with the Sun.  Venus has moved into Pisces.  Mercury is moving forwards across the heavens again.  At the weekend there is a Grand Trine with the Moon, Pluto and Mars, although Neptune is in opposition to the Moon.    

Cardinal 1 – Fixed 5 – Mutable 4

Fire 0 – Earth 4 – Air 3 – Water 3

Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable whilst Air has lost two signs, one to Earth and one to Water.  

Trying to put things into perspective comparing with the last few months, I interpret this week as a time of celebration!  I guess my head is on the block again.

Counsellors – Although there is still a stickiness to any situation you should be able to work from Client’s expectations gained at the weekend.  Go easy though.

Healers – you must be able to do something with the energetic scene this week.  It hasn’t been as balanced for some time.  Make good the opportunity.

At last!
