Sorry about the delay in this month's report. My dear sister passed away suddenly and it's put me in a thoughtful mood. Death is such a final thing, nothing you can do about it, rendering you helpless, esp hard for a fixer like me. Surrendering to the immovable facts, as my eyes tear up, is hard. She lived a good long life, and I believe, is now with her husband and family, so its all good. But reminds me that friends and family are so important and our busy lives get in the way of keeping in touch. Telling people you care, keeping relationships strong, and finding room in your life for connection is key to a happier life. So I say to you all, tell your friends and family how much you care; mend fences with someone; thank the Universe every morning when your feet hit the floor for your life, and live out your day in gratitude for all that you have - cause you just never know.
So February is about Universal Love. Aquarian's are generally Loners. They love the masses, and pretty much are annoyed by individuals, ergo solitude is important to them, so they can think deep thoughts, plan for change, envision better futures and inventions and ideas, because they are ruled by Uranus, the planet that governs genius and change. So in the month of Aquarius, with so many planets in same, its time to look at your fellow man, to see his plight and his hope; to care about that; to consider how the world can be more humane and how we can be more humane to one another. It's a time to get outside of yourself and think of others and how the collective needs to change. See it in your mind; envision its workings; so you can believe these changes are possible, workable, doable. Your visions have power in general but greater power now than ever, as your thoughts can manifest the new world just by imagining it.
The New Moon in Aquarius on Feb 8th triggered even more change energy, as it aspects Venus, Uranus, Pluto, Mars, Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn at the same time....very potent energy. We are acclimating to the New Us, the new person we have invented, the new roads we will walk down in the years ahead. Jupiter now conjunct Eris, the Goddess of Justice, gives us an optimism supporting those changes - while Saturn Parallel Pluto means we must take a slow and conservative move ahead, finding balance vs extremes - yet making powerful changes while doing that. This is our dilemma. How do we accomplish both? By adding realism to our movement. Make changes, while being practical about it. Don't shoot yourself in the foot but don't stand in the same place you are now either. One step at a time, but forward movement none the less. One idea at a time, then another, then another. Be the tortoise, not the hare, but stay in the race and with steady, continuous movement forward the changes will happen and they will be built on solid ground.
Don't forget the importance of Eris. She is our ring leader, fighting for Justice in all things. This summer she will be in full swing with the changer of things, Uranus, and will make swift changes in our society - because this is the Aquarian Age finally here to unfold. The group mindset is emerging, as we become part of the whole. Our world today lives in the 3rd Chakra energy...and we are evolving into the 4th Chakra where we can live from love, not anxiety; live as a connected to source always, not separate and afraid; giving us Joy and Contentment and an abundance of Creativity to live lives of harmony for all. See the planet where we are not struggling for money or survival and living our days out in ways that are not satisfying. See a planet of billions of artists, scientists and inventors creating something to better our lives all day long. Loving what they do; making our lives better with their ideas, or their art or their discoveries and being joyful that they can do what they love. This is where we are going. Find your bliss and follow it.
Uranus is the highest octave of the air signs, Libra and Gemini and Aquarius. Uranus is vision of what can be. Uranus is connected to the 6th Chakra or the 3rd eye, of vision or intuition or psychic knowing. When your heart Chakra opens, this is a natural link that forms with your 6th Chakra, giving you a glimpse of what Creator has in mind. Seeing the bigger picture. Knowing where you are going.
Aquarius is the 11th house of the zodiac. It rules hopes, wishes and friendships. You're 11th house, in your own unique horoscope, should be a key to your global destiny, your unity with mankind. The divisions of the current world must break down, republican/democrat; my religion is better than your religion; I'm more important that you are, etc. WE ARE ONE, made from the same cloth with the same DNA and from the same Creator. Think of it perhaps as a bee hive mentality, we must work together and stop separating ourselves from our neighbors, while being unique individuals who bring something special to the equation. Your unique 11th house will tell you where your area of focus and leadership should come from, and see how planets in that house aspect Uranus, giving you more clues about yourself and your destiny in the new world.
For example, I have Cancer as my 11th house, the sign of the home body. I love having friends over to my house and sharing good times, talks and experiences with them. I am also a nurturer, and friends tell me I have a healing energy around me. I also have the planet Uranus in my 11th house, which means all my friends will always be unique, a bit eclectic and even odd, which is completely true. I love interesting people who are different from the norm. So this tells me my purpose is nurturing (Cancer), but in a unique and non-traditional way (Uranus) involving unusual groups or methods. So trying to get the message out about astrology to you is my way of helping guide you to the future, which is what Uranus and the 11th house is all about.
February is also Valentine's month, so love is in the air. The planets however are more about loving yourself and letting love into your secret places for healing. ALLOW YOURSELVES TO BE LOVED, ALLOW YOURSELF TO LOVE YOURSELF. No one is perfect, we are all works in progress, and we need to love what we are, not what we think we should be. You are unique, there is only one of you, embrace your special place in the world, embrace your mission, embrace your weaknesses, and embrace the God part of yourself. Open your heart to you and let the love in, let it heal you, wash over you like warm water and touch you from head to toe.
On February 19th the Sun moves into Pisces, the last cycle of the zodiac, the 12th house. Piscean's are old souls, carrying many memories and burdens from their previous 11 cycles of life. Pisces is about #9, the number of completion. They are wrapping up a cycle, and getting ready to begin anew in their next cycle or next life. And for us too, this energy will permeate our lives from Feb 20-March 20th. It is time to release the past, and get ready for the spring. The new world will be blossoming soon, and you need to be ready. Happy seeking!
