Important Occurring Transits
VALENTINE'S DAY REMINDER: Last Friday I wrote about my feelings toward Valentine's Day, in the Daily Message titled, Love, Relationships and SIR," and that Valentine's Day is probably 'the most obligatory' holiday of the year. I even did a radio show on this same thing. Folks, I'm giving you the head's up here, if you are one of those people who are going to get hurt over what you received or didn't receive for Valentine's Day, then you may have a few challenging weeks coming up because Mercury will be going retrograde on Wednesday night, February 14, 2007. You may be caught up in "Obligatory Love" and not "True Love" in addition to the challenge you may already be experiencing in relationships. If you are an "Obligatory Lover", then make certain you are clear about it, if in fact that is what you are asking the Universe to give you.
MERCURY RETROGRADE FEBRUARY 14, 2007: Communication efforts will probably be slowed down and if you are in a challenging relationship . . . Oh Gees, this is not going to feel Good. Mercury is the planet of communication. Those of you who are already in challenging relationships may get caught up in the illusion of Valentine's Day, which can create diluted thoughts and over-imaginative thinking and that will be quite the bummer. That in and of itself is an illusion that can easily turn to dilusion. Retrograde means backward and no planet EVER goes backward folks! It's the appearance of the Sun casting a shadow on Mercury. I have noted in the box above the dates for Mercury Retrograde and I will put a note in each horoscope for each day reminding you of this illusion.
NEW MOON HEAD'S UP: The next NEW MOON begins February 17, 2007 at 11:14 AM EST and ends on February 19, 2007. Please take into consideration your own Natal Chart for the time when you choose to begin something NEW during this NEW MOON. For myself, I will not be starting anything NEW until February 19, 2007 after 2:06 PM EST because I want to wait until the Moon goes into Aries on the 19th and it will also be out of it's void of course FIT! The NEW MOON begins with Aquarius Moon on February 17 BUT it will be void of course, so I don't want that. Then it goes into the Pisces Moon the rest of the 17th and 18th, but Pisces is my South Node (the drain in my chart) . . . so I will be patient and wait for the Aries Moon on the afternoon of the 19th. I have been working on NEW things to load once again during the NEW MOON.
SATURN RETROGRADE: Saturn Retrograde can be an absolute train wreck right now for the uninitiated Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus, meaning those who do not know much about their own Natal Chart. Saturn is the planet of control, restriction, squeezing, limitiation, authority, father, karma and lessons. Saturn is in Leo right now, which presents that squeeze, limitation and control for Leo's. Most Leo's have already overcome the harder part of Saturn and they are on the upswing. For Aquarian's there are a ton of them trying to control and put the squeeze on relationships. Is that weird or what because most Aquarian's don't want to be in a committed relationship anyway but they are most certainly putting the squeeze for things to go their way? Most of them are just scared right now and don't know how to react. And then Scorpio and Taurus are square to Leo. A square is when there is a 90 degree angle to another sign because two other signs separate them from Leo. For Scorpio it is Virgo and Libra that separate them from Leo. For Taurus it is Gemini and Cancer that separate them from Leo. This poses a challenge, squeeze or hardship for Scorpio and Taurus in a certain house of their natal chart.

How Do Transits Work For You?
Yesterday I found myself in deep agape wonderment regarding transits and how I can further help you, help yourself. I will try to make this as simplistic as possible because my desire is for you to understand you before anyone else.
DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY AND YEARLY HOROSCOPES: When I write horoscopes for an entire population of people, I start with your sign as the first house. Even though this may not be the case for your personal Natal Chart, I have to put your sign as the first house and then each house follows in order because this is for an entire population of people. For example, I am a Gemini so I write them for ALL GEMINI'S based on Gemini 1st house, Cancer 2nd house, Leo 3rd house, Virgo 4th house, Libra 5th house, Scorpio 6th house, Sagittarius 7th house, Capricorn 8th house, Aquarius 9th house, Pisces 10th house, Aries 11th house and Taurus 12th house. If you are a Leo, then I start with Leo as the first house and then follow the signs in order around the chart wheel.
Certainly, even though this is not your personal Natal Chart, there is a great deal of influence on how the planets hit each sun sign's house and you will feel the effects.
Even though the planets are all still moving about the heavens and they sit in a certain degree, they have a more powerful influence on your personal Natal Chart, because this is very personal to you. For instance right now Saturn is in Leo at 21 degrees. Leo rules my 2nd house of money, personal possessions, morals and values. It is all about my moral and value system. If I have a planet in my 2nd house that is within 8 degrees of Leo at 21 degrees, I will definitely feel it. The closer Saturn gets to my planet Uranus in Leo at 22 degrees in the 2nd house, the more I feel the effects. So right now they are 1 degree away from each other. If a planet is within 3 degrees or less of another planet in the same sign, it is called "conjunct" and I will feel it even more because they are nearly on top of each other. If these two planets (Saturn and Uranus) work well together, then I feel that. If they are a challenge to each other, then I would feel that. So right now, for me, Saturn is "conjunct" my Natal Uranus. This certainly and severely heightens my astrologic abilities because they compliment each other in that way.
If you have ordered your transits, then you will see the word "Natal" in each transit that affects your personal Natal Chart.
Below is how the Transiting Saturn conjuncts my natal Uranus. This is a Good aspect for me and I have to use it to straighten-up and get right.
