Thursday, Feb. 23: In the last week of February, we don’t have any significant aspects, except for the Jupiter-Chiron conjunction. Jupiter is now at 11 degrees Aries, Chiron at 13 degrees Aries. The conjunction is slowly building up (and will become exact in March). Pay attention to feelings, events or developments – anything that stirs inside your feelings of vulnerability. Chiron is that “owe” we all feel, that wound we all share. And Jupiter will put the magnifying glass on it. Not to make us suffer, but to help us pay attention to what matters. You may have flashbacks of old hurts from your childhood. A parent who ignored you. A classmate who bullied you. A teacher who made you feel inadequate. An event where you felt exposed or ashamed in front of other people. Old wounds will resurface to remind us of painful experiences we haven’t fully processed. This acknowledgment of the wound is a normal part of the healing process. Healing will come, but first, we need to make friends with the wound. Today we celebrate Stan Laurel, who died on Feb. 23, 1965.
Friday, Feb. 24: As the moon moves from Aries into Taurus, we have the feeling of fresh – and that is good. It feels good. Happy birthday to Wilhelm Grimm, born this day in 1786. Together with his brother Jacob they brought the world the tales by the Brothers Grimm.
Saturday, Feb. 25: With Uranus conjunct the moon, it’s a great day for a surprise. You can surprise yourself. George Harrison, the quiet Beatle who was also one of the Traveling Wilburys, was born Feb. 25, 1943.
Sunday, Feb. 26: With the moon and Saturn in harmony, it’s a day for disciplined progress. Don’t bite off too much or you may fear indigestive pains. When he was born, he was Antoine Dominique Domino Jr. He became Fats Domino, who once was more successful than Elvis. He was born on Feb. 26, 1928.
Monday, Feb. 27: It’s the day of the first quarter moon, with the sun in Pisces and the moon in Gemini. It’s a good day to catch up on things you’ve been neglecting. Is she more famous for her love affairs or for her “purple” eyes? You choose. I speak of Elizabeth Taylor, born Feb. 27, 1932.
Tuesday Feb. 28: For most of the day, the moon is in talkative Gemini. Then she moves to her home sign of Cancer. It’s a very busy day, capped by a quiet time tonight. He was born in Toronto and is designs include art galleries, museums and major public buildings around the world. He is Frank Gehry, born Feb. 28, 1929.
Wednesday, March 1: Harmony between the sun in Pisces and the moon in Cancer is a cosmic note to enjoy yourself. Happy birthday to Justin Bieber, born March 1, 1994. He is the only singer to have seven songs from one LP appear on Billboard’s Hot 100.
