The astrology chart of the full moon of February 2015 has several interesting patterns.

Top of the list is the focused yod:

2015-02 February Full Moon Focused Yod (Basic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

(Some of you might recall that we had a “focused yod” in December of 2012.)  We note that the focal point of the yod is the Moon with the Sun in direct opposition (i.e. it is a full moon).  One leg ends in Chiron (the wounded healer) and the other leg ends in Pluto (death and radical transformation).  Remember, one leg of a yod is not necessarily “better” than the other, and we are typically dissatisfied with the choice we made in hindsight.  The wounded healer might sound better than death, but a lingering misery may not be preferable to a quick end.  We will all have to make choices at this time, and do remember that “choosing not to choose” is a choice itself.  (It is the choice to abdicate.)

We note that the decisions we face now, especially if we failed to decide or to act earlier, may be followups on earlier events.  For example, some of the decisions faced now may be predicated on events that occurred circa December 3/4 of 2014 or November 29, 2014 or both.  And, as we have said before, this is likely part of the playing out of a larger pattern that we called “The Grand Yod of 2014.”  If you failed to decide then, then you almost certainly must decide now.  (Mercury retrograde emphasizes that.)

This is an important time to avoid decision fatigue and concentrate your efforts on the most important ones.

Here is the unfiltered FM chart, set in Plano:

And here is the U.S. map:

From Miami, FL to Portland, ME, this will be one spectacular moonrise at the shore of the ocean.  We think that the best place to be will be Florida with Moon, Jupiter, and Sun lines in play there.  (These same lines also pick up Georgia and the southern edge of South Carolina.)

For many living in these areas, this will be a GREAT night to sneak out for a romantic date.  If you do not go to Miami for their celebration later that weekend (after the FM) on February 6th, you might try the beginning of Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  Mobile is a possibility as well.

Note that the coast of California, including San Francisco, is affected by a Pluto line.  Here is the same chart with the focused yod at the time of the Full Moon of February 2015, but set in San Francisco:

We note that this is a highly activated chart by showing the Pluto + North Node + Astraea / Uranus / Sode Node “T-Square.”  (aka “You can run but you cannot hide.”)  We also note that Uranus opposed (or will oppose, depending on when you are reading this) North Node on January 31st per this source.

This is integral to the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square.  (Warning: casual readers may find the following video to be a bit “technical” and requiring a bit of thought to digest.)

The United States (and North America) is quite activated by the FM.  We also choose to present a map of Tennessee.  We note that Sun and Juno lines are lighting up Middle Tennessee, and Moon and Jupiter lines are lighting up Eastern Tennessee.

Kentucky, Alabama, and Georgia are also affected by these lines as well as states to both the north and south.

Other interesting patterns are present in this FM.  One is a Mystic Rectangle (if you allow the nodes).  Sun, Moon, Uranus, Astraea, and the nodes are part of this pattern:

Any locale (such as Tennessee) that has the Sun or Moon lines in play (or Uranus or Astraea) has the energy of this Mystic Rectangle pattern affecting it as well.

In addition to the Focused Yod discussed earlier, other Yods (two overlapping ones) are present in the Full Moon of February 2015.  Here is that version of the chart:

Here is the map for Europe and the UK:

The United Kingdom is mostly unaffected, but oil rigs and other operations in the sea west of Ireland need to be extra careful at this time (Uranus / Node lines).

And we zoom in for the map of France:

Noting the Vesta IC (bottom of the chart) line through Amsterdam and Lyon, we provide a chart set in Amsterdam and highlighting the Yods in the chart (Vesta is part of one of the Yods):

Another pattern in play in this full moon is a kite involving Sun, Moon, Uranus, and Pallas:

2015-02 February Full Moon Kite (Basic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mid August Leos and early February Aquarians will particularly feel the kite, likely having at least one good opportunity opening.  Early December Sagittarians and Early April Aries will also see a similar window, though through a different lens and maybe a bit quirky for them.  The fact that the Kite and the Focused Yod overlay each other (a) forms a larger pattern that (b) incorporates Pisceans and Capricorns into the mix.

We should note here that when we make a statement such as “Mid August Leos and early February Aquarians” we do not mean strictly the Sun.  This could be your Moon, Mercury, or Venus, or it could be other planets you have in the relevant locations.  To really know, you have to check your chart.  If you do not have one, a good place to get a basic one is here.  Indeed, Astrolabe is a good source of astrology software.

However, chances are good that if you are Leo / Aquarius / Aries / Sadge that you will be presented alternatives by Pisces and Capricorn (as described earlier: Pisces is the “wounded healer” alternative and Capricorn is the “death” or “radical transformation” alternative).  That is, you will be given a choice between trying to keep the status quo and limping along with what might be band-aid fixes or taking a radical leap and jumping from the frying pan into the fire.  Needless to say, when you look back on this choice you will always wonder “what if” I had taken the other choice.

But, again, with a bit of ingenuity you can find a remarkable opportunity at the time of this FM.  And note, also, that ANOTHER kite is present involving the Nodes.  So, a second opportunity is present though not as strong as the first.  We do note that the two kites are connected not only via their overlapping Grand Trines but also via the Mystic Rectangle mentioned earlier.  So, BOTH opportunities MIGHT be available.  (Indeed, sometimes in astrology two patterns really means “two or more.”)

If you must choose, then choose wisely.

And, please do note that, due to Mercury Retrograde in this chart, you may not be able to FULLY launch until the New Moon of February 18th.  But, you can make preparations for that launch now, and make the decision of which path to travel: try to repair what may or may not be currently working or “jump ship” into something radically different.  (You cannot have it both ways.)

Astrology King offers this interesting way to view the chart as well as alternative interpretations.

We note that western India and northeastern Pakistan are affected by Uranus / Node / Astraea lines that have been discussed elsewhere.  Since these are IC lines, this likely means either one of two things (or both): (1) conflicts emerge or (2) a winter storm with enough impact to lead people to stay home and stay inside.  Eastern India has a Pluto line, and we could see conflict there as well.  A Ceres line also affects this region, so supply chains, particularly with regard to food, may be disrupted.  These lines do not touch Sri Lanka, unlike the Juno line of the recent past New Moon.  So, maybe by now, whatever “trust issues” may have been affecting Colombo have passed and all is well.

Broome has a Saturn line “nearby” and may experience more strife and austerity than usual.  A Hygeia IC line (bottom of the chart) affects Brisbane and Newcastle and, to a lesser degree, Sydney.  (Generally, the easternmost coast is affected.)  This tells us of possible healthcare issues such as a summer cold outbreak or something similar.  New Caledonia has a Pluto / Astraea line on it, possibly causing some kind of strong upset that leads to legal action.

Canada has a Vesta line through Calgary which is similar to the one affecting Amsterdam.  However, the Amsterdam line affects home, the grave, and endings whereas the Calgary line affects marriages, relationships, and “open enemies.”

Particularly interesting is the triple crossing of lines on the U.S. side of Lake Superior (probably right on the shore) but affecting southern Ontario as well as parts of northern Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota.  The Moon, Juno, and Jupiter all meet, and it sounds like a great story for a soap opera or maybe a murder mystery.  We have the faithful wife (Juno), the philandering husband (Jupiter), and “the other woman,” the Moon.  They all meet on the shore of Lake Superior for a full moon rendezvous.  Let’s see how THAT plays out.

MIght be similar to the Snow Moon of 2013 in that region.

Finally, we present the chart filtered for 5th harmonic aspects.  (These are the aspects that support creativity and brainstorming.  They indicate areas where breakthrough thinking might be possible.)

    • Thanks for an interesting comment. I have not looked that far ahead, but as I further develop this post I will take a peek at it. “Things” do seem to be happening in San Francisco (and the California coast). I certainly welcome further comments from you and others as I develop this blog post over the course of the next week or so (through the end of January, 2015). As an aside, I note that the Pluto line of the January 2015 new moon over the Middle East has proved rather significant both in Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
