January/February Vedic Astrology Newsletter

By Mark Alexander
Welcome to our free monthly astrological newsletter. Below you will find astrological influences for all the signs of the Zodiac relative to the Sun position for the month of February 2022 and a whole lot more.
This is a sidereal based or (fixed star system) of astrology, meaning its relative calculations are astronomically reflective of the literal planetary positions. That being said, there is also the lunar constellations to take into account since my practice of astrology is based upon the ancient Vedas of India otherwise known as Jyotish, meaning the ‘science of light’.
To begin, please note that your Vedic Sun sign will likely be different from your western astrological birth chart, due to the approximate 23 degree difference that currently separates the calculations between Vedic and Western astrology.

Aries Sun – If your Sun is in the sign of Aries, your personality will be bold, energetic and sometimes aggressive in the way of being a bit too demanding. If your Sun is influenced from a challenging planet, you may need to be aware of, or be respectful of boundaries of others, meaning try not to push your beliefs or agendas onto them. Offer what you feel is true for you from the perspective of friendship or cooperation. Aries is a Fire Sign, and the Sun is exalted here giving you an exceptionally strong character, so know that you can be overpowering to others and may not even know it. If you’re feeling off balance emotionally or upset about something, remember to take a few deep breaths and then speak, “after” you think about what it is you want to say. Your Sun in Aries is great for successfully starting projects and opportunities, but remember it will be helpful to have a working partner or group of associates that will see through the completion of your business goals and projects.
Your Aries Sun placement means the February Sun transit is moving through the Sign of Capricorn, your 10th house as measured from your natal Sun location.
