We have just passed through the full moon eclipse in Leo, and are in the waning period of this intense moon cycle. The next two weeks then, are about integrating and assimilating the feelings of this past fortnight, which will carry through now, for another few months, until the next eclipse period in July. Mercury re-enters Aquarius, on the 14th, which makes five planets, one asteroid and the karmic node, all in that sign, until the Sun moves into Pisces on the 18th. Jupiter, Mars and North Node, conjoin around the 17th, to bring some fortunate circumstances, into play. Perhaps we have some peace movement, of major proportions about to be unleashed. Another Mahatma Ghandi, to lead the masses, towards a field of unified thought. This is the time, to work together, like never before, to achieve some healing for our Planet, and our lives; constantly subjected to struggle, stress and striving. If we unite, our thinking, our resources, information, technology and hearts, there is nothing which in unobtainable. Quantum physics, in motion. The Saturn/Uranus opposition, has tipped the scales once more, and now we find a new equilibrium, based on fresh thinking. Those continuing in the old way or paradigm, will increasingly find themselves in uncomfortable and confronting situations, until they too, succumb to the calling of the human heart, towards oneness.
NEW MOON 6 Pisces 35 February 25, 2009 9:36 a.m.
ARIES : Mars fresh into Aquarius, is encouraging you to step out boldly in your new life direction. Innovative ideas, are coming your way, and you have the energy to implement them now. You have been anticipating this change, and now that it has finally arrived, the enthusiasm will carry you forward with great momentum. As Mars teams up with Jupiter around mid-month, you will become an unstoppable force for change, within your community. Fortunate meetings will occur, which have you seemingly in the right place, at the right time.
TAURUS : Venus in Aries, is no lightweight. She is packing quite the punch, and with that, will see you being pushed and shoved in new directions, with force. You can resist and create grief for yourself, or you can succumb and learn to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. The choice is always yours. Aries works in harmony with Aquarius, and yet sets up quite a pace for us to follow. Do your best to keep up this fortnight, and if that fails, at least find a place, well out of firing range, to take a break.
GEMINI : Mercury returns to its’ retrograde degree on the 21st, at which time, things should really start moving forward once more, for you. Aquarius, a fellow air sign, is opening all channels of communication, including the intergalactic ones. Stay tuned for messages coming your way, this fortnight, as they will give you clear insights into what is to come, in your life, and that of the Planet. A little boldness is called for here, with an opportunity to branch out in new directions for many. This is a very exciting time, and yet remember to rest also.
CANCER : How are you sensitivities holding up, under the stress and strain of the current configurations? Are you managing to adapt yourself to changing situations, or is it all a bit much for you? The next moon cycle will be an easier one for you, and as the Sun seritipuously slips into Pisces, on the 18th, things will start to mellow out. Or at least there will finally be an emotional ear, to listen to your woes, rather than an analytical one. Keep your patience then, as this too, shall pass, and the dryness again, turns to moisture.
LEO : All this activity in your opposing sign, is no doubt, making your life, a little uncomfortable, and more unpredictable than seemingly, is necessary. Ride it out, for now, as good things are coming of all this disruption and lack of personal attention. Your time will come, as it always does, and rest assured, that we are all in this together. Being one of the crowd, has its’ benefits as well, you know. You don’t have to work quite as hard, to get the same amount of work done, although perhaps not getting quite as much, acclaim for yourself.
VIRGO : It seems that you are always, in the right place at the right time, and this period is no exception. Any stray, sick or injured creature, just seems to cross your path. You seem to be constantly, playing out the part of the rescuer and the nurse, and it feels, that there are just more and more who need your care. Remember to turn your attention to yourself, as well, this fortnight, for then you will keep up your stamina. The risk of burnout is there, for you as well. At the end of the day, who are you giving out all this attention to, for? Careful, it’s not for your ego.
LIBRA : Venus, your ruler, is in your polar opposite sign, and this generally means a little discomfort, in your personal arena. The good news, is that all this Aquarius energy is hitting up your chart, in a very positive way. Perhaps it is time, to look at your relationship to life, in a different way now. The old, usually brings you to grief, in one form or another. You could learn to adapt yourself to abrupt changes of direction, with more grace and to allow the ease of these to infiltrate your nervous system. If not, you could find yourself, a little fried.
SCORPIO : Moving up the evolutionary ladder, is a precarious ordeal. Firstly, you have no idea where the ladder is headed, and second, the temptation is to always look down. Resist the urge, to try and figure out where you are headed this fortnight, and stop the process of also trying to determine that, on where you have come from. This is a whole different ball game, with all new rules. The framework is being implemented step by step, as the old form slowly, but surely gets dismantled now.
SAGITTARIUS : Jupiter and Mars conjoined, to create a formidable duo this fortnight. Aquarius is a fixed sign, and as such, creates rigid perimeters. Perhaps it is better to strike out on your own, and make your own rules. Allow the rebel in you, to step forward, and take centre stage. Bring those rigid ideas forward, and with your ability to adapt, you will co-create a harmony around you, with a free form kind of effort. The new, is always a tad experimental, as it obviously, has never been tried before. Add some fun and frivolity to the mix.
CAPRICORN : How have you been holding up with the Saturn opposition and all? Are some of the old ways slipping out of your life? If you find a little rigidity has crept in, perhaps this is the time to lighten up, with some dance, singing or at least, surrounding yourself with music. An occasional retreat, which includes quiet inner inspection is good. Uranus in Pisces, wants change, yes; and yet with as much love as possible. Love for yourself, as well as for others, and in fact, particularly for yourself. Be gentle with you.
AQUARIUS : There is so much working in your favor, that you would be hard pressed to find fault this fortnight. If you do, then you are judging far too harshly, yourself and others. Although the Sun exits your sign, the other Planets remain, and with this you will be making headway in all areas of your life. Healing is upon you, and the Jupiter, Mars, North Node combination, will have some lovely reminders in the form of friends, come into your life. Acquaintances which, you had thought gone forever, suddenly reappearing.
PISCES : This is the time of year, when the dreamer comes forward in everyone, to be recognized and appreciated. You will, for this month at least, find a real camaraderie in those around you. The softness and the gentleness is acknowledged by all. A true time of healing, of old wounds. Let this coming birthday then, be of the recognition of kindness, forgiveness and the surrender of pain, to the one who best knows how to heal it. When the World becomes too much for you, or for those you care about, give it all to the Creator and watch miracles abound.
