Monthly Astrological Insights for February 2022

Date Posted: January 31, 2022

February 2022, a positive month for relationships and communications but with a slower pace 

After being retrograde for about last 6-7 weeks, on January 28, Venus turned direct.  However, she will be not gain her average speed until the end of March. Therefore, for those who have been experiencing a very challenging relationship ride in last couple of months, are very likely to see the end of this miserable relationship period but don’t expect an overnight shift.  It’s a slow recovery period that might last until the end of March. Hollywood and entertainment industries would begin to experience positive changes in their business activities.

In addition, on February 4th, Mercury becomes direct, but it will also not gain its average speed until February 16. This means, soon after February 4, communications snafus would likely disappear but the restoration of normal communications is not likely to happen until after February 16. This applies to all areas of communications–industrial, personal, private and the media having lost people’s trust during the previous month would likely to restore that trust.

Escalation of tension between the USA and Russia over Ukraine?

The manifestation of the Neptune-Uranus (Jan 1 – Feb 22) ninefold square may be reflected in a sudden change (either positive or negative) in relationship between USA and Russia.


About President Joe Biden and his challenges…….

President Joe Biden’s current Dasa cycles are: Jupiter major, Rahu intermediate and Venus as sub cycle lasting through March 22, 2022.  The planets in the Nakshatras (constellations) ruled by Jupiter are: Jupiter and Mercury; in the Nakshatras ruled by Rahu are: Mars and Ketu; and in the Nakshatras ruled by Venus: none. Thus, the activation of energies of Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Ketu and Moon and Venus are expected to be reflected in President’s present activities and actions. 

For him February is likely to be a better month than the previous months as he finally hopefully ekes out, albeit not getting as much as he wanted, a multi trillion dollar spending bill (Build Back Better) that progressive and moderate democrats had not been in agreement. Nonetheless, it would finally still be seen as a victory for democrats as they would reluctantly come together to pass it.

With Libra as his ninefold (Navamansh) ascendant, favorable Jupiter continues to be in the 5th house of his Gochar (transit) chart; Mercury in the 4th house of his transit chart continues to be favorable all February as it becomes direct in sidereal Capricorn and stays in Capricorn all month. Also, Venus is going to be in the favorable third house of his transit chart almost (Feb 27) till the end of the month. In addition Mars is going to be favorable for him for the entire month. Overall, most of the planets seem to be providing favorable energy to enable him to carry out his agenda and successfully govern the country. 

Given the transit (Gochar) chart dispositions of his active planets, the favorable Jupiter, at least until February 16, is likely to help him successfully executing his domestic agenda and start achieving his goals for 2022;  getting passed the “Build  Back Better” spending bill in Congress, continued Covid-19 nationwide vaccinations efforts, and providing help to needy nations, etc. During the latter of the month, his adversaries may get strengthened to block his efforts, he may have to deal with few failures and need to take care for his health.

The favorable Mercury in the 4th house of his transit chart makes it a lot easier for him to deal with his critics and adversaries. As a result, he would likely to make some political gains and perhaps recover from his sliding popularity. The energy of the favorable Venus will be reflected in valuable guidance and efforts that he receives from his advisors in successfully governing the country.

The energy of the 3rd house favorable transiting Mars will likely to be reflected in successful diplomacy and rise in international prestige.

Overall, February is likely to be a better month for him than the previous months.
