As we continue to move through February we are about to see something quite interesting. The coming new moon on the 11th is going to bring romance to the forefront quite literally. 

Because this moon is heavily influenced by Venus and Jupiter it is going to be one that enhances our lives in big ways when it comes to love and things of that nature. You may find that you’re feeling more $exual than you typically would and so close to Valentine’s day perhaps that is a good thing. You may in the long-run end up happier because these energies are around. 

Astrology King wrote as follows about some of the aspects this new moon holds and the energies they bring forth:

Sun conjunct Moon (0°00′) represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

Venus conjunct Jupiter (0°10′) portends good luck, love, money, and success. It brings the benefits of the good karma accrued from previous good deeds and hard work. It promotes harmony, warmth, and friendliness while bringing opportunities for growth and happiness.

Relationships of all kinds are a major focus of this conjunction. This is the best planetary combination for dating, falling in love, and improving an existing romance. You can also increase your wealth through investments, especially in art, jewelry, and other luxury items.

Saturn square Uranus (0°31′) climaxing on February 17 is associated with tension and frustration due to sudden and expected changes. It can bring changes you don’t want. It also makes it harder to make the kind of changes you do want. Your personal freedoms and rights may be restricted.

But if you stay open-minded, patient, and flexible, challenges can be turned into opportunities to rid yourself of negative and limiting things in your life. Don’t force the change you want but adapt to changing conditions. A well-considered, methodical, patient, and step by step approach is best.

Mars sextile Neptune (1°11′) gives strong sexual urges refined by a romantic and spiritual influence. Increased charisma and magnetic allure help you attract your soul mate if dating. Partners can bond closer through sensual massage and tantric sex.

This spiritual warrior aspect helps you defend the mistreated or fight for a just cause. A strong sense of what is right and true will guide your actions. You can also heal others through acts of kindness and compassion.

As you can see, this moon is bringing a lot forth as it has a lot of influences present. While you might not be feeling it right now as the days move forth it will be quite hard to ignore. I, for one, am excited for all that this new moon has to offer me.
