*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!

Author’s Note: Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, Jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light—within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications, and purpose of jyotish is therefore different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.

Jyotish Horoscopes for the Waning Moon Cycle. {February 3rd to 18th}

This waning cycle brings very distinct shifts in the cosmic energies.

Venus continues to chase Mars, amplifying our passion. This creative tension swells and intensifies as both planets shift into Pisces, but it gets restructured by Ketu in the coming weeks and changes our course. Our creative flow, our love and our relationships make some abrupt shifts. Mercury goes direct, offering a forward motion to our mental body and communications.

Finish up the loose ends that you’ve been neglecting. Once Sun shifts into Aquarius on the 13th, our laser focused, one-pointedness relaxes. We’ve sharpened our tool kits and now it’s time to trust the process. Keep the focus, but relax your tension.

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your “Western Sign” as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.

Aries: Now is your time to shine. Put the right pieces in place and find the necessary structure to get the job done well. This requires you re-tracing your steps, again. You know those tasks you’ve been meaning to activate, the goals you’ve had on your to-do list, the organizational details that have needed your attention for over a year? Now is the time to activate. Wondering why you are reluctant, and resisting? Probably not, but you need to be asking yourself why. (Hint, you’re afraid of expansion and what it will require of you.) You’re about to see some financial gains, but only if you have the right systems in place. Go for the gold—inside and out.

Taurus: Share, shine and serve right now. It seems you can’t get enough, and your offerings are becoming more solid, more inspired and more connected to your dharma. Take notice of what is serving you as well. Reciprocity is key. If it nourishes you, it will nourish others. This is the ultimate life gain. There’s more where that is coming from if you immerse yourself fully in sharing and connecting in more life supporting, life sustaining and life serving ways. Make your work, worth your effort. Make your life worth living. Keep refining. Right now, keep expanding and externalizing. Share your gifts.

Gemini: It’s time to re-inspire yourself. Re-define what nourishes you. Re-establish what you desire to share with the world. Remember who you are, why you are and what you are here to accomplish. This requires refinement and a removal of all that does not serve your deepest, core being. There are embers burning within you; now is the time to gather the kindling you need to build your inner fire. Gather slowly and intentionally. Gather the sacred ingredients to nourish your inner light. Tend to your sacred fire and let it become a bonfire.

Cancer: Keep walking in circles, retracing your steps. Keep turning over stones and looking for clues. Keep moving towards expansion by going into familiar territory, onto familiar paths. You’ve done all this before, but this time it provokes a renewed attention to detail that you’ve missed previously. Your relationships are causing you to channel love differently and to treat the flow of this love differently as well. Can you really bottle it at the source and drink it up? With courage dear heart, with courage. Oh and quite a bit of willingness to look deeply at what terrifies you as well. Attend to your vulnerability and deepen your capacity to love.

Leo: What is making you feel well fed, truly nourished within your life? Can you locate this deep inner nourishment in your heart, in your gut or on your pelvis? Or in all three? You are still in a deep refining phase, where you are learning to cut out the parts of life that don’t truly serve you, honor your needs, or bring inner fulfillment to you. Keep moving towards the nourishment, what feeds you. The trick is to be able to digest and assimilate the nourishment arriving into your life though. Ask others to support you in this process and let the mirrors coming to you be a reflection of what you need as well.

Virgo: Pay attention to your gut. The messages coming are strong and filled with purpose. You must be diligent with this sacred resource. Your gut wisdom is what tells you if you are well fed, nourished. It is the hearth of the temple. The gut is the seat of your life force, the powerful fire within, where you create momentum, action, passion for your life. Little to no fire and you will not have much energy to put into living life. Too much fire and you will scorch your life force, using it carelessly and not be able to put it to good use. Tend to your sacred agni, the sacred flame, with diligence. Listen to what is has to share with you. Make this life force, this inner light, your top priority. Your life depends on it.

Libra: Your passion is strong, but something is holding you back from feeling it fully. There’s a tightness in the chest, a burning sensation, heart burn. The way to expanding and feeling the fluidity of love is not by force. It’s not by coercion or pretending. It’s through authentic sensory experience. By sensing and feeling into repeatedly what nourishes you deeply. Take this deep inquiry of nourishment into every aspect of your life. Where are you feeling satisfied and well fed? Where are you still feeling malnourished, neglected and disconnected? Use the wisdom of your gut to inspire a deeper inquiry with your needs.

Scorpio: As a naturally passionate being, you are getting an even stronger taste of your own medicine right now. Instincts are strong, trust is deepening, creativity is full throttle. What you share, how you share it and who you share it with, is getting amplified and it feels so good! Take the sensations of this nourishment and deepen your awareness of its abundance. Expand your heart center and let in the light. It’s not that the shadows aren’t lurking, but you’re just not afraid anymore. Spread your wings and soar. Enjoy the magnificent landscape from above.

Sagittarius: There is a slow and gentle return right now to old patterns, old ways, familiar paths. Be intentional with this return. Pay attention to what is serving you and what is not. With awareness, you can choose what to keep and what to discard. What you wish to take with you moving forward, and what you wish to release once and for all. This becomes even more true as Mars and Venus shift into your 4th house with Ketu. You get to decide what nourishes your heart, your home, your inner depths, and what needs to be let go of for new life to be possible. Your emotional body wisdom will be the messenger. Pay attention to your heart messages. Stretch your wings and let them help you to soar in truly heart expanding ways. Heart burn, optional.

Capricorn: It’s as though there’s a light saber in your head, sharing its honing forces with you and keeping you focused, sharp and lit up. Use the force, use the force. The focus you are gathering right now proves valuable as the cosmic tides shift. As you focus your agenda more intently, and get clear on the essentials, you can become more deeply nourished in the coming weeks. This focus is so potent and powerful for you, that creativity is about to amplify and flood you with immense creative life force. As you narrow the channel, you can then direct the flow of life force more potently. Ready, aim, fire hose!

Aquarius: Do you feel like you’re being pulled in too many directions? Are you unsatisfied from having too many irons in the fire? The desire list is so long, it’s hard to keep up. Life is short and you’re trying to fit it all in. Sadly, more does not equate better. The fact is, the more you do, the less you really get accomplished. You are learning discernment, refining your choices, based on your needs. Always do what you need to do, what truly feeds you, nourishes you and brings you more fulfillment. Structure your life, your offerings, your actions around the nourishment and you will be getting more than enough done and feeling full simultaneously.

Pisces: Let in the light in new ways, in more powerful ways. Take some chances with your creativity in order to attract some new resources. You’re about to feel like a ball of fire hurtling towards new and very foreign objects (some may be love interests) and you will feel out of control. You are. Sometimes we need to be out of control in order to re-gain a new sense of control, a new kind of control, a renewed and re-established kind of control. To hit a new set point of normal. You are in the throws of it. Put it in neutral and gather momentum. Grab what you want, let go of what you don’t. As fast as life is moving, it is vital you take as many pauses as you can and find moments of retreat. Even if it’s just while you sleep.
