Valentine’s Day Astrology Features Mercury out of the Shadow and Back in Aquarius

The astrology for Valentine’s Day 2016 will be memorable if nothing else because the wrath of Mercury Retrograde’s shadow will finally be over.  I know that Mercury retrograde officially ended on January 25th, but like so many other people I have been in contact with recently (when I could reach them), the shadow has prevailed and caused quite a few snafus with email, computers, smart phones acting stupid (I typed at tweet that said rift and it came out gift), telephone messages and snail mail, including package deliveries.

On February 14th, Mercury re-enters Aquarius, the sign it was in when it stationed retrograde on January 5th.  I sense that there will be a collective sigh of relief heard around the world now that we FINALLY have a green light to pursue our goals and resolutions for 2016.  It appears that the Chinese New Year of the Monkey, which began on February 8th, is a more accurate predictor of when it feels like 2016 has been launched.

What it is it about this particular Mercury in Capricorn that has made it so challenging and difficult?  Plenty.  Mercury in Capricorn has conjuncted the Sun, Pluto and Venus in Capricorn while also squaring Uranus in Aries.  Did you feel the frustration and sense of delays in relationships and finances? Were you caught in the middle of some intense power plays?  While Mercury in Capricorn can be very focused, it is also very sober and practical and has a tendency to become too rigid while projecting a cold, harsh demeanor.  The bottom line is that we may have experienced trouble discerning the fine line between realism and pessimism.

Mercury in Capricorn conjuncted my Chiron in the 4th house and opposed my midheaven, Jupiter and Uranus in the 10th house and squared my Libra ascendant.  Is it any wonder that I have felt held back, irritable and impatient?  I know that I have been really hard on myself and those around me.  And winter weather, like snowstorms that keep me home and force me to reschedule Reiki appointments didn’t improve my disposition.

Now we know that Mercury is finally back in Aquarius, which is bound to make communication more unconventional and inspiring, which should lighten the tone.  But we have some other pretty nice aspects coming up on Valentine’s Day.  Mercury will form an out of sign conjunction with Venus in 26 degrees of Capricorn, so we may find it much easier to communicate and share with our loved ones on Valentine’s Day.  Neptune in Pisces is forming a nice conjunction with Ceres, the dwarf planet (formerly referred to as an asteroid) that is associated with nurturing.  How sweet is that?  Having both Neptune and Ceres will fuel our compassion and nurturing side through fantasy and imagination.  Prepare for a really romantic Valentine’s Day with this aspect.  The Pisces theme of compassion and healing is further emphasized by having Chiron in Pisces conjunct the south node of the moon in Pisces.  It can help release and heal old emotional wounds.  And Mars in Scorpio is sextiling Venus in Capricorn, which will ramp up the passion element.  Mars in Scorpio is also sextiling the north node in Virgo as well as Jupiter in Virgo which can help us deal with issues more directly thus avoiding ugly confrontations.

We are also still benefiting from the ongoing alignment of Jupiter conjuncting the north node in Virgo as it guides us intuitively on our path. The north node in Virgo has an underlying theme of service to others.  In that spirit of pursuing my path as a healer, I am channeling that north node and Jupiter in Virgo energy by offering my Reiki services. If you are in the Boston area, please consider getting a Reiki treatment at Acupuncture for Everyone in Copley Square to destress, revitalize and remove blockages to healing.  It’s a perfect way to start your weekend off.  Reiki is the most profound treatment for stress relief because it concentrates on CALMING your body.

Since Pisces energy is so predominant in the Valentine’s Day chart, consider giving the gift of healing to your loved one.  It is also a very Aquarian gift because it is unusual and different.  Check out my tweet on Reiki at:
