ELECTIONAL DAYS ARE SENT MONTHLY ON MY ASTRO-COLUMN. Write to me to be put on my monthly list.

NOTE: Some of you have written to me asking why I would indicate a Good Day when Mercury is Retrograde. It is obvious that people cannot put their lives on hold for 3 weeks. If you must do something when Mercury is R, pick a time when the Moon is only making good aspects. If you have to do something under difficult personal transits, pick a date when the Moon is only making good aspects.

I chose a fantastic date and time to leave for the airport for my trip to Europe. However, I was also experiencing a Mars opposition Mars opposing its natal sign. You can read about this on my website but it is a low energy cycle and, if you push yourself, you will become ill and recuperation is difficult and lengthy. Well, I did get laryngitis from breathing the cold, dry air while mountain hiking (Nanos Mountain in Slovenia) but it did not interfere with any of my activities. I had loads of supplements with me to keep the condition from becoming worse. The entire trip went without a hitch, even though my energy level was very low.

FEBRUARY 6: Jupiter turns Retrograde at 23 Libra 08
FEBRUARY 10: Full Moon at 22 Leo 28
FEBRUARY 21-22: Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn 18 degrees
FEBRUARY 26: New Moon at 8 Pisces 12
FEBRUARY 26: Mars conjunct Uranus 22 Aries
FEBRUARY 27: Mars opposes Jupiter R in Libra


FEBRUARY 2: The Moon is in the sign of Aries but there is only a short period from 11am to 11:45am when the Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius. This is a brief favorable time for inspired organization and long range planning.

FEBRUARY 4: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a brief period during the night from 12:00am to 5:30am EST when the Moon trines Pluto and Mercury. This time works better in Europe where it is 6 hours later. It favors writing, research, meditation and all forms of practical decision-making and analysis.

FEBRUARY 10: The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a Full Moon at 7:34pm EST so this is not a good time for surgery. However, from 9pm to 12am EST, there is a brief period, after some enlightenment, when you can engage in spiritual, metaphysical or other educational studies, lectures or enterprises. These are mental and introspective aspects.

FEBRUARY 15: The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, from 10am to 8:45pm, it makes good aspects to Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun. This is a good period for relationships, socializing, and seeking cooperation with others. Fire and Air signs favor communications and inspiration. Relationships are more inclined to be loyal and supportive.

FEBRUARY 17: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and there is a brief period from 9:30am to 2:30pm EST when the Moon makes favorable aspects a parallel to the Sun and a sextile to Pluto. This period favors working alone. It is a good time to streamline projects. Corrections must be made to ensure success.

FEBRUARY 19-20: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes a series of favorable aspects lots of activity in the matter from 1pm on the 19th to 6:30pm on the 20th. At this time, the Fire signs are highlighted, favoring motivational and inspirational activities. The last aspect is a conjunction with Saturn but it is well aspected so that you can receive assistance from an older, wiser person. Saturn does require that you wait and be patient when delays occur but they will not deny success.

FEBRUARY 23-25: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes a long series of favorable aspects lots of activity in the matter. From February 23 at 12:18pm EST (to 1pm on the 25th) when the Moon enters Aquarius, it ONLY makes favorable aspects to the planets in Aries, Libra and Sagittarius. The last aspect is a sextile to Saturn so help is portended over a long period of time. Progressive mental activities are favored.

NOTE TO READER: These dates are based upon electional techniques. All of the Moon sign dates apply to everyone. Do not simply read your own Moon sign read all of the signs for what I say about the specific dates.

The Moon sign information will NOT describe the day, only the outcome if you initiate something important on that day.

    I have many times read about the moon and other inner planets triggering other transits in one’s chart. As you said above, “The Moon is in Scorpio and your 1st House every 28 days. This is not significant unless it triggers other transits and progressions in your chart. “
    My 3 questions are 1) If you have particular aspects in your natal chart, are they activated also? For instance I have a Tsquare with Uranus at the base in 3rd house and Saturn-6th opposition Mercury in 12th. So when there is a moon, or retro mercury etc. in transit in those houses, would it trigger the concerns of my T-Square planets and houses? Or do you see the trigger as primarily active when it aspects my progressions and/or other current transits?
    2) What orb do you use for the trigger?
    3) I always look at transits by how they affect natal patterns, but then my chart is constructed with almost every major planet part of a T-square or if you include Chiron a grand cross. So it’s never a “Jupiter conjunct your mercury” without it also being opposite my Saturn, and square my Uranus, for instance. So if there is a good aspect between that Jupiter transiting my natal Mercury, like a trine to transiting Mercury, which would prevail?
    I have a bunch of other questions, but that’s it for now. I’m so glad I happened on to your column and articles.
    Thanks! Rahima

    RAHIMA (8-2011): You have asked a lot of good questions.
    I will answer a general one on TIMING:
    To be honest, I have not found an accurate system for picking the date when an event occurs. Uranus transits last for 1 year but it is impossible for me to predict on which dates Uranian events will occur.
    The Transiting Mars 1 degree behind the Ascendant is often a trigger for some event.
    If the Ruler of the 11th House is a slow moving planet, its aspect to the Ascendant will trigger a relationship meeting with someone from your past.
    I have Venus in the 11th and, when it aspects my Ascendant, I receive a call from someone from my past.

    T-SQUARE TIMING: I have observed this for years that the T-Square is triggered from the time an outer planet enters the earliest degree in the T-Square until it finally leaves the latest degree in the T-square. Say you have a T-square with the Moon at 2 degrees/Mercury at 4 degrees/Saturn at 6 degrees. Pluto transiting this will last from the time Pluto entered 2:00 degrees to the time when Pluto leaves 6:59. This can be a 2-3 year period.
    During this entire period, the T-Square is triggered with some event that commenced when Pluto first aspected the Moon, at the earliest degree.

    Years ago, when my mother’s progressed Moon entered her T-Square involving her money Houses, I told her that there would be complications around receiving money but it would be over and she would get the money when the P Moon lefted the T-Square. This was accurate.

    In working with clients in the 1980s, I did not find that the Personal Planets (through Mars) wuld trigger the T-Square, unless there was an outer planet in this configuration as well.

    So, I do not use triggers for specific dates as I can be wrong. I can give specific dates as Progressed to Progressed aspects often occur on the date when they are exact and the Moon making minor apsects (150-135-72 etc) often produces an event on the exact date.

    You need to make these observations yourself — which is exactly what you are doing. Then, it all becomes clear as to what works and what does not.

    Now, events that occurred before 15.5 years of age are easier to predict. Use the degree of separation of exactness to show when a natal aspect became embossed upon the personality.
    For example, supposed you have the Moon at 10 degrees and Saturn at 15 degrees making a square. At the age of 5, you were weened emotionally and learned to 1) take care of others before yourself and 2) that you cannot rely upon mother to take care of you. Sometimes this can actually be the birth of a younger sibling and mother has less time for the individual.

    I use the technique in my Medical Courses, determining when a childhood (unexpressed) trauma occurred that has planted a seed for some future health issue.

    SAIIDIA (11-2012): No one can put their life on hold while Mercury is R. You need the money so take the job if offered. R is fine for a temporry job. Only start
    permanently when Mercury goes D

    Thank you. Lina.

    Hi Lynn

    How have you been? My email has changed, so I’ve included the new one.

    Isn’t the Pluto mission fascinating? The heart-shaped pattern (the heart shape has a Roman erotic history) and the reddish color (co-ruler Mars?) are very interesting. I’m sure there will be more surprises in store.

    I’d like to share an observation from the past 5 years of following progressions/transits in order to make predictions.

    It seems when I’m following an aspect closely, I see very few hits. However, when I use progressions to go back in time, some big events over the years (aneurysm, lawsuits, disinheritance, deaths of family members) are clearly associated with the aspects.

    By the way, many years ago, when I was your student, my apprehension of Pluto getting ready to conjunct my Mars- Saturn- Midheaven exact conjunction in Scorpio was correct. At the time, I feared for my father (Saturn, ruler of ascendant conjunct Midheaven ) and my younger brother (Mars; in 10th, ruler of the 3rd). Mars was first, located at 7 Scorpio 35 and followed by Saturn 7 Scorpio 50. My brother first committed suicide in May 1986 and my father committed suicide in December 1986.

    I recall you at the time you said that aspects to planets in fixed signs guarantee an observable event. Do you still believe that?

    I really enjoy reading your blogs and newsletters – you’re a great writer!

    BOB (7-2015): Bob, I have a really good FB astrology account. I hope you can join. I am just finishing up an article on prostate cancer for a free e-zine. You can get the link on my FB. Yes, Fixed signs are more observable but, today, I feel that the Cardinals are affecting health issues through high cortisol.

  9. Niki Says:

    Have you got any good electional days for September and October? My son wants to release music which he has worked on for over the past year and 1/2. His birthday is on the upcoming September 13th partial eclipse. There is only one aspect the moon makes which is to a sextile to saturn. Thank you.

  10. Laurel Says:

    Hi Lynn, I’m very pleased to have found your site! I am in the market to buy a new car and have held off until Mercury goes direct this Friday (10/9). Are there days coming up that would be optimal for new car buying? I’m not in a hurry but would like to do it before the end of 2015.
    Thanks in advance!!!
