New Moon in Pisces – Saturday, March 1, 2014 – 3:00 am EST

The New Moon brings the energy of new beginnings. We’re coming into a very special energy pattern with this New Moon in Pisces, the last sign in the Zodiac year. With SUN and Moon in Pisces – we are starting this Lunar cycle with heightened sensitivity. In order to benefit from this energy – we need to quieten down our inner static and listen to the signal rather than the noise.

Pisces brings the energy of the dreamer, the mystic. We can be feeling vulnerable right now – with our energy bodies open to external stimuli – from other people, from watching the news, from taking on someone else’s burden. Neptune, ruler of Pisces, is quite close to this New Moon, and further sensitizes us. This is an unique opportunity to be open to subtle energies. It’s important to be quiet in order to listen for the inner directives, without expectation.

Now is not the time to sign contracts, do taxes or make specific plans. Neptune’s energy can bring confusion, doubts, delusions – if we to go against this current. A good way to be with this energy this weekend, is to take some time to relax, listen to music, go for a walk. It’s a time for allowing visions to come through regarding next steps to take in our lives. Neptune-ruled Pisces brings out our intuitive capacity and lets us listen to our inner voice.

Mercury is making a station (seemingly “standing still”) on Feb. 28 and will begin to move forward in early March – in the sign of Aquarius. These past 3 weeks of Mercury retrograde have been full of incidences of computer malfunctions and other technical difficulties. This will now clear up as the pace quickens.

We continue to deal with retrograde energies as Mars goes retrograde through Libra from March 1 – May 20. Normally, Mars brings the energy of the initiator – taking action and moving things forward. However during this retrograde period in Libra, Martian energies are “slowed down.” This can be a frustrating time, because things may not advance as we expect. There may be much impatience with the slow (if any) progress toward creating new governments, holding fair elections, or coming to peaceful accords.

In our personal lives – we may feel frustrated and impatient – with delays, plans needing to be changed, projects put on hold, etc. It is helpful to work with this energy rather than resist it. It’s best to cultivate patience as the timing may not be ripe for major movement. This period is well-spent researching and reviewing plans and goals to be ready for the energy shift in late May, when Mars moves forward again.

The Grand Cross between Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars will be exact (for the 5th time) on April 20 – this pattern is building right now – and will dissipate by mid- May. World events are still in major upheaval. Old corrupt systems are being challenged. Some systems are collapsing without new structures in place. At the same time, many creative breakthroughs are occurring – in technology, science, the arts, medicine, the environment and so on.

In our personal lives – we are being challenged to be more creative, to focus on solutions rather than simply dwelling on the problems we are facing. Pisces is the sign of selfless service. Let’s enjoy the act of being of service and focus on giving. It helps to remind ourselves what we are thankful for and express our gratitude!

UNDERSTANDING OUR LIFE PATTERNS: The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY
Understanding our birth charts helps to clarify the nature of our struggles and the nature of our gifts . What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each planetary cycle? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others.

Valentine’s Day – Full Moon in Leo

Happy Valentine’s Day!

FULL MOON in LEO, February 14, 2014 – 6:53 pm EST
We’re in for a potentially warm and generous Valentine’s Day. Leo is ruled by the SUN and loves to SHINE. Leo rules our HEARTS. It’s a wonderful time to celebrate our relationships with those near and dear – with genuine appreciation and gratitude. The SUN in Aquarius (opposite the Full MOON) tends to focus more on the larger picture –with concern for the many and a desire to build viable, friendly social networks and communities.

Not all is sweetness and light! Saturn, our great teacher, will be in a challenging relationship with both Sun and Moon on Friday – We may want to hold back our affection – or feel tired and discouraged. We may feel blue – with no one special to celebrate. Valentine’s day can be a lonely time for many. It’s important to look within and find ways to love and accept ourselves. That is the core from which love attracts love. It may also be vital to acknowledge where we have feared to trust and to love and to soften our defences and allow love in. Self-acceptance is part of self-love.

Venus and Pluto are still fairly near each other in Capricorn. This can intensify relationships – calling for commitment.

Mercury is moving retrograde until it turns direct on February 28. This is a good time to slow down and catch up with ourselves. There may be frustrating times where travel plans change or get cancelled, electronic devices act unpredictably, and communications become confused. It’s important to back up our programs and files. When Mercury “slows down” – it’s a good time to be reflective, to review our current thinking and to have patience. It’s not a good time to sign contracts – better to review them – with the help of a friend or colleague. Make sure that you are clear about your agreements. Sign the contracts in early March if possible.

We’re still experiencing chaotic energies everywhere. Uranus is in a tense relationship with Pluto – meaning that major systems – economic, political, and social are unstable. Where foundations (Pluto) are weak, Uranus breaks through and outmoded and corrupt systems weaken or collapse. Uranus brings a yearning for freedom, democracy, authenticity – and people are rising up all over the world. . Uranus also stimulates breakthroughs – with new innovative ideas, technologies and creative solutions. This intense pattern will be with us until April 2015.

PREPARING for 2014: The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY
We all experience “easy” and “difficult” cycles in our lives. Having an Astrology reading is very practical and useful. It helps us plan ahead and guides us along our way.
