The modern planetary ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, which is why today’s square between Uranus and the sun is so energetically potent and intense. When these two planets square off (with the sun in the fixed sign of Aquarius and Uranus in the fixed sign of Taurus), it urges us to take action toward immediate change.

You are ready to transform and grow because the energy allows you to be your truest and most authentic self. You no longer want to hide behind a metaphorical mask: You’re now embracing the parts of yourself that have been hidden away from others.

This also makes us see others from a different perspective. The moment people reveal themselves, we might or might not like what we see. As long as we’re honest with what we want, then all the shake-ups and minor earthquakes the energy brings to our lives won’t be so distressing.

One thing is certain—you can expect the unexpected. Be prepared to experience weird events, feelings, and conversations. Others might surprise you with their conspiracy theories that you might not agree with. It’s an eye-opening day that could change your life.

We may be prone to pushing a bit too hard today, trying to force movement when there is still a planning process to complete. The Moon highlights the extended Mercury-Pluto conjunction, which is offering promising intellectual capacity. However, we may be inclined to be a bit too clever today rather than staying with the ongoing planning process. We still need to elicit additional input and build a broader base of support. With patience and self-control, we can make extremely promising progress today. But spontaneous, erratic suggestions to veer onto tantalizing side roads will only lead us to dead ends and slow our progress. Once we pass tomorrow’s Aquarius New Moon (9:45 PM PST 12° Aquarius) we will have more hope of finding the kind of initiative that we’re looking for. The Moon goes void-of-course this evening at 8:43 PM PST.

2/1/2022 NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.

2/8/2022 FIRST QUARTER MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.

2/16/2022 FULL MOON IN LEO: You feel safe in moments when you can impress others and get praise and admiration. Yet, when you get into the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. It is very important to accept feedback and use it for improvement.

2/23/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.


Learning to set healthy boundaries is the gift of Armadillo Spirit. You are entering a phase where in order for you to be in alignment with your intentions and co-create your best life, you may have to be discerning and say no to many things that may have been okay for you in the past.

This also means that you need to learn where you end and where others begin, what is yours to own and what is not. Know your limits and understand that it’s an empowering choice to say no to what doesn’t feel right.

Armadillo Spirit is here to tell you it’s time to be honest with yourself about what you really want. Be clear on what you are agreeing to, declare what your needs are, and say no as a full sentence; these are acts of respect and kindness to others as well as to yourself. Trust your body’s signals, and you will know what to do.

Armadillo Spirit guides you in making good decisions that are grounded in a strong sense of what belongs to you and what does not.
