February 2008

Two eclipses this month! This always means a major turning point after which our lives will never be quite the same. The decisions made at this time will have long reaching consequences and will place us on tracks which will lead to different choices and new environments. There could be some massive relocation during this time as we need to find our right spot on the planet, the place that makes our soul soar. We could leave behind jobs, circumstances and people we no longer feel connected to.

The Solar Eclipse will occur on Wednesday 2/6 at 7:44 PM at 17º44′ Aquarius. This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “a man’s secret motives are being publicly unmasked”. This will mark the beginning of the unraveling of all the lies that have been perpetrated. The notion of oneness won’t be so abstract anymore and we shall understand more deeply that all that we do and think is not only visible to others but also affects them. It is now time to cut binding cords with our past and to move forward clear of what has been limiting our progress. That means listening to our hearts and only doing things or congregating with people who inspire us joy.

The Lunar Eclipse will occur on Wednesday 2/20 at 7:30 PM at 1º53′ Virgo. “A large white cross dominates the landscape”. This is how Sabian symbols describe this very magical degree. As we move resolutely towards our future, we need to do so with tremendous clarity of purpose, purity and a sense of our own sacredness. Bridging dimensions together, the cross is also symbolic of our connection with each other. This marks a time of building upon the new ground that we have created for ourselves, free from what was no longer conducive to higher growth.

Mercury is retrograde until February 18 at 6:57 PM when it reaches 8º19′ Aquarius. “A flag is seen turning into an Eagle” is the symbol for this degree. During this retrogration, we revisited what had kept us from our inner truth and the values unearthed are leading our spirit to incredible freedom. No longer defined by external circumstances, we can fully embody our power and continue our ascension process with a knowingness that we are all that is.

Saturn is still retrograde this whole month between 6º57 and 4º47′ Virgo. There could still be issues around authority and discipline. We are having to find a subtle balance between our own inner authority and external authority without allowing ourselves to feel disempowered by the structures we still need to compose with. If we look closely, those delays are actually helping us define who we really are.

Our intentional mediation started on the Leo Full Moon on Tuesday 1/22. On Wednesday 1/6, take out your Full Moon charged blank sheets and on each one write a concise, positive intention (1 per sheet). Make sure they are out by exactly 7:44 PM on a balcony, near a window, in a garden, to collect the energy the energy of the New Moon in Aquarius. And since this is also a Solar Eclipse, the effect will be multiplied. Once the exact moment has passed, gather your sheets, staple them together and put them away expecting a miracle!

On Wednesday 2/20 at 7:30 PM, you will charge some new blank sheets of paper in the Full Moon in Virgo (also a Lunar eclipse). Once that exact moment has passed, gather your papers and put them away until the next New Mon in Pisces on March 7 at 9:14 AM.

Friday 2/1: Venus conjunct Jupiter (3:34 AM):

A wonderful day for an adventurous date that expands our horizons, while bringing much enthusiasm and happiness. Excellent for artists who will feel inspired. Just be careful of overindulgence in food and other pleasures. Money matters are most beneficial today. Great also for a trip either with a loved one or on which we could meet a romantic partner.

Saturday 2/2: Mercury Conjunct Neptune (4:55 PM):

Magnificent for artists, channelers and healers who tap into other realms of consciousness. Not so good for rational thinkers who could find that there is confusion in data and communications. A great day to meditate by the beach, daydream, read an inspiring novel or watch a positive film. We could become more aware than usual of our soul connections with our brothers and sisters. Short trips have a sacred dimension to them today.

Wednesday 2/6: Sun Conjunct Mercury (10:19 AM), Venus Sextile Uranus (6:23 PM), Solar Eclipse (7:44 PM):

A wonderful day to clarify our goals and communicate clearly our needs and wishes. A great evening for a very exciting date, as well as meeting new, unusual people who open us up to a sense of freedom and joy. The romantic changes that will take place tonight will change our lives forever. Breaks in relationships will be irrevocable, and new encounters will gear us in a whole new direction. Kindly also refer to the opening paragraph.

Sunday 2/10: Sun Conjunct Neptune (6:04 PM):

A wonderful day to express the spiritual dimension of our nature. We could find ourselves being more mystical than usual. There is a great need for inspiration.

In the next few weeks, a love could revert to friendship while a friendship could become a love affair. More unusual relationship set-ups are the norm.

We could also be attracted to unusual art forms and discover new money-making opportunities that allow us to work from home and enjoy more freedom.

Monday 2/18: Mercury turns direct (6:57 PM), the Sun enters Pisces (10:50 PM until March 20):

We are being forced into an honest look on our situation and more efficient understanding of what is important and what isn’t in our lives.

Tuesday 2/26: Mercury Conjunct Venus (9:52 AM)

Communication is flowing, harmonious and peaceful. Great to get together with friends and to enjoy conversations where much gets expressed in a nice and positive way.
