Magical Times for January & February 2019

by Bob Makransky


Planetary transits – in conjunction with Planetary Hours – are a simple way to plan your activities to take advantage of the karmic ebb and flow of the cosmos. These favorable / unfavorable times to act (or refrain from action) hold true for everyone; but they are particularly effective when a celestial event occurs on or opposite a planet or angle (Ascendant or Midheaven) in your natal horoscope. You can ascertain the positions of the planets and angles in your natal horoscope for free from astro.com.

Moon-Jupiter conjunctions: best times to initiate (or pray / cast spells for) healing OR to move / travel (time of leaving home or takeoff): 1/02/2019 between 8:26 & 9:18 pm; 1/30/2019 between 1:55-2:24 pm; 2/27/2019 between 7:35-8:13 am

1/02/201912:50 am Sun Conjunct Saturn @ 11°CP31’ = You may come eyeball-to-eyeball with someone or have to take the bull by the horns in a difficult situation. You must be decisive and unflinching without being oppressive yourself. Use New Years’ day to clean your home of negative influences (Tuesday between 8:14-8:47 am or 1:40-2:03 pm). Negative thought forms collect especially in rooms where fights have taken place or where evil people have been; and they tend to aggregate around windows, doorways, pictures on the wall, bookshelves, etc. Light a censer with an acrid incense such as copal or patchouli, and walk around each room wafting the smoke this way and that, especially at windows, pictures, TV and computer (especially the TV and computer), furniture, etc. As you waft the smoke, intend the cleansing of the room and its objects of negative thought forms.

1/05/201911:53 pm Venus Greatest Western Elongation @ 28°SC42’ = Good for casting a love spell: between 3:58-4:18 pm light a pink candle and imagine that you are right there in front of your beloved (or if you don’t have a beloved, a beautiful stranger). Look him or her directly in the eyes; take his or her hands in yours; and say everything that is in your heart. Then listen to what he or she has to say; let the thing flow as it will. Then embrace and kiss as if it were really happening right now, and feel yourself filled with joy and happiness! Then with a sigh, squeeze their hands, wish them well, and let them go.

1/06/20193:28 pm Uranus Stationary Direct @ 28°AR36’ = An unexpected (serendipitous or calamitous) event may shake you out of your ordinary routines and doldrums. It’s a message to relax and go with the flow.

1/13/20191:58 pm Jupiter Square Neptune @ 14°SG/PI23’ = May be some over-optimism which leads to disappointment / betrayal, especially for people with planets in 15° of mutable signs. Better pull in a notch this whole week and be cautious and frugal instead of seeing through rose-colored glasses.

1/22/20197:27 am Venus Conjunct Jupiter @ 16°SG04’ = A joyous, harmonious time in which social and financial matters take a turn for the better. Excellent time for launching new projects (such as asking someone out on a date => 5:06-5:53 pm Monday); indeed, one of the most favorable aspects of the entire year, so you should do something enjoyable today. Good for casting a money spell: between 9:32-10:42 pm on Monday light a green candle, take a deep breath, and vigorously shake your body to cast off all your money worries. Imagine that you have plenty of money for all your needs and never need to worry about money ever again! It's better not to focus on money qua money, but rather on what you need the money for; that these needs are being abundantly met; and you are joyous and positive about your future! (it’s important that you see yourself as a conduit of wealth to help others rather than living the Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous – i.e. that it doesn’t stop with you).

1/29/20199:51 pm Mercury Superior Conjunction Sun @ 9°AQ54’ = New information comes to light which gives you a surge of confidence and self-certainty; a burst of insight or understanding. A good day for making moves, for travel, for joining together or communicating with others, and for making forward-going progress in personal and business relationships (between 9:45-10:18 am or 3:35-4:02 pm).

1/31/2019 – 9:16 am Saturn Sextile Neptune @ 14°CP/PI55’ = Good week to initiate spiritual disciplines or to rid yourself of bad habits and emotional baggage which is bringing you down, especially for people with planets in 15° of earth/water signs.

2/13/2019 – 1:21 am Mars Conjunct Uranus @ 29°AR12’ = Sudden, surprising events – either a breakthrough or turmoil – forces a major change of plans or thinking, especially for people with planets in 30° of cardinal signs. You are bold, decisive, even reckless; a good day to make a stand or tell someone off (between 1:08-1:41 pm or 7:47-8:33 pm Tuesday).

2/18/20195:53 am Venus Conjunct Saturn @ 16°CP46’ = Good for casting a Scat spell to break up with someone who’s bringing you down. Between 4:39-5:10 pm Sunday afternoon light a black candle and imagine your ex is standing right in front of you and telling you that they've decided that they've had enough of you. Don't feel rancor; feel relief. It’s important that you don’t cast this spell in a mood of anger, particularly if your ex is a vampire who is sucking your energy by provoking your anger. You have to call it quits in the spell – not take pleasure when they get their comeuppance (as you do in normal daydreaming). Take deep breaths, or jump up and down and shake your body, until you are calm and in command of yourself. Then imagine taking your erstwhile lover’s hands in both of your own; look him or her squarely in the eye; and say in your own words and using your own sentiments, “It’s had its good times, hasn’t it? But now it’s time we each went our own way.” Then wishing him or her the best of luck in their future journey, turn around, wipe your hands of it, walk away and don’t look back.
