Happy February!! Why Astrology Works 3.0


Happy February tomorrow ( or today depending on your timezone)  to all my radiant litebeings! I thought it would be worthwhile to re-post my first astrology post from 2 years ago. Retrogrades are great for re-posts, re-blogs, edits, and re-invention. I am still a couple of days away from my Ascendant return, ( the day that the sun reaches the degree of my Ascendant) but excited about the fresh influx of energy! Please enjoy this re-view and let me know how the current retrograde is treating you.

BTW, this would be an excellent time to LIKE my Facebook page, link on the right 🙂

This brief  “rant” is to help the uninitiated understand why I love astrology. This love is illogical, unscientific, and 100 percent biased. Long before I owned an ephemeris or even knew such a thing existed, February was my favorite month of the year. Even though I don’t particularly love winter. Even though I was born in November. When I was a kid, most of my close friends were born within a few days of each other during the beginning of February. I met my teenage crush on February 1st and for a while considered it an unofficial holiday.  My first serious boyfriend was born on February 5th and one of my most magical romances began on Thursday, February 4th. (love the phonetic symmetry)

Once I began taking formal astrology classes and attending astrological lectures, I learned how to properly calculate my astrological chart ( the days before we had computers!!) . Then I discovered that I am an Aquarius Rising. It basically means that the sun enters my first house every year approximately between February 4th and February 6th. For the astrologers reading this, I approximate because I have altered my documented birth-time by a few minutes to correspond better with life events. No one is usually born at 1:00 pm on the dot!!

Why I am posting this ” rant” ? Because I am feeling the pre- ascendant energy take shape! I love the electricity that accompanies the transition from the 12th house to the 1st, the darkness to the light, the hidden to the brightly illuminated. It is truly a rebirth.

Happy Birthday to all my  February Aquarius friends . Come celebrate the coolest shortest month on our calendar. And to those who don’t get astrology, pay attention to when you come back to life. It may surprise you!

    1. Hi Sue,
      I am preferring February to January 2018 so far. It has been more varied and a bit more manageable. How about you? Happy 43RD! Quite a milestone I would say. I guess St Valentine agreed with me about Feb and romance 🙂

      love, Linda

  2. Hi! I am an astrology enthusiast, and came across your post this afternoon. As I was reading about your ascendant return I realized that WHOA, I’m exactly at my ascendant return today — 11 degrees! I never knew much about this transit, but I loved reading your post about the rebirth. Yesterday I was feeling dark, but today much brighter…so I attribute it to the darkest hour comes just before the dawn. I’m so happy I found your post today. PS: I’m a double aquarius so I’ve got my solar return coming up soon as well.

    1. Happy Ascendant Return! Mine is on the 6th and I already feel better today 😉 So glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks for visiting and commenting and hope you will come back again soon!


    1. Hi Jamie, I am feeling a soft breeze. Still in the 12th a few more days but once Groundhog day hits I begin to anticipate a positive “bump”. May I ask which day is your solar return?
