Mars continues to be retrograde this whole month (until March 10) between 8º56’ and 1º01’ Leo.
This is a fabulous time to help children develop their skills and provide the space for them to be all that they can be in their highest destiny. This mirrors our deep need to balance work and play for ourselves. Developing our creativity helps us connect with our inner child. As we create more time to explore what makes us feel alive and full of energy, we discover a new level of playfulness which feels light and joyous.
Saturn continues to be retrograde this whole month (until May 30) between 4º21’ and 2º56’ Libra.
These 3 degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “A man revealing to his students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘new world’ could be built”, “Around a campfire, a group of young people sit in spiritual communion”, “The dawn of a new day reveals everything changed”. We have clearly accomplished the passage into the new consciousness. A time to rejoice. Our homework done is manifesting incredible new and exciting realities in our lives beyond what we could have thought possible. As we are surrounded by our star family and like spirited friends, we are feeling the incredible support of the universe for what we have created both individually and together.

Our Intentional Meditation
On Saturday 2/13 take out the papers we charged on January 29.
Write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Aquarius at exactly 6:51 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Our next intentional meditation begins on Sunday 2/28.
Take as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and place them out (on a balcony, near a window or in a garden) to be charged by the Full Moon in Virgo at 8:38 AM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon on March 15.
Saturday 2/6: Mercury Sextile Uranus (0:03 AM), Jupiter Sextile Pluto (9:41 AM)
A day of exciting new ideas. Cherished concepts are likely to be challenged. We receive sudden answers to our questions. Our intuition connects the dots between elements apparently unrelated. We may distance ourselves from people who seem to always deal with the same old dramas. We are attracted to unusual, free-spirited people who stimulate our minds. Spiritual regeneration is likely to occur today. Profound inner experiences make us look at our lives in a different light.
Sunday 2/7: Venus Conjunct Neptune (9:45 PM)
Much magic permeates the air. Artists could feel particularly inspired. We are able to directly experience the oneness of all. Any romantic connection today feels special, with a profound soul connection. When we look at our Beloved, it is the face of God we see. A sense of great serenity and otherworldliness accompanies this transit which is highly mystical in nature.
Wednesday 2/10: Mercury enters Aquarius (1:06 AM until March 17)
During the next 5 weeks, we have a chance to experience quantum thinking. We could be drawn to scientific writings and be particularly inspired by channeled material that expands our minds. We are downloading much information at an accelerated pace and seek knowledge from the future that broadens our inner and outer horizons. We could feel restless and impatient as we are seemingly immersed in a fast forward motion. We could have very direct encounters with extra-terrestrial forces during this time.
Thursday 2/11: Venus enters Pisces (4:10 AM until March 7)
The next 3 weeks are all about unconditional love, compassion and feeling the oneness of all. We could commune with people we don’t even know consciously. We also feel animals and plants from the inside. There is a sense of great mystical inspiration that artistically oriented people can use to create sacred works. Beauty is particularly appealing.
Friday 2/12: Mercury Trine Saturn (5:36 PM)
A great day for clearing our desk of back-logged work. Good for doing administrative papers. Serious conversations feel attractive. We need efficiency. Our purpose is clear. Our communications are structured and serve our ambitions. We seek the advice of people more mature or of higher status whom we respect and admire. Wonderful for entering formal contracts, signing important documents and redefining our long, medium and short term goals.
Saturday 2/13: Mercury Opposition Mars (2:25 AM)
We should beware of not jumping impulsively to conclusions without having all the facts in hand. Extreme caution should be exercised while operating any motor vehicle or handling sharp objects. Tempers are short today. People may blow up on a dime. Opinions are expressed directly without any diplomacy nor much consideration for the consequences. Best to avoid confrontations.
Sunday 2/14: Sun Conjunct Neptune (3:20 PM), Venus Sextile Pluto (11:16 PM)
We are experiencing a dissolution of ego. As we are finding new reference points inside and outside ourselves, incredible new visions are received which inspire us to spiritual action. We feel a passion for life and possibly another which makes us want to give ourselves fully to the experience of being all that we can be. A date tonight would be imbued with strong sexual feelings and prove to be a powerful catalyst for self-transformation.
Monday 2/15: Mars Sextile Saturn (7:20 AM)
Our energy is focused. Great for endeavors requiring much concentrated energy. Today, we are disciplined and our intent is serious. An excellent day to enroll in a new fitness program. Our willpower allows us to withstand even physical discomfort to get the job done. We exert leadership abilities and motivate others to hard work and endurance.
Tuesday 2/16: Venus Conjunct Jupiter (6:14 PM)
A great day for attending an enjoyable social event or outdoor activities such as hiking or camping. Our faith, enthusiasm and optimism attract like-spirited people. We feel the breeze of adventure opening us to new, exciting adventures. Romance is fun and playful while also stimulating our minds and spirits to greater levels of consciousness.
Thursday 2/18: Sun enters Pisces (10:36 AM until March 20, Spring Equinox)
During the next month, we are more flexible, going with the flow, feeling like we are in a dream and able to shift our consciousness to create new realities for ourselves. There is a greater sensitivity to surrounding circumstances as well as more compassion. Divine inspiration elevates our consciousness. Great for artists who could access new, more subtle dimensions of creativity.
Tuesday 2/23: Sun Sextile Pluto (8:27 AM)
A great day for self-transformation. We want no stone to remain unturned. In darkness, we give ourselves to the darkest to switch the light where apparently there was none to be seen. Our self-regeneration occurs at a cellular level. We could transmute old, limiting beliefs and replace them with new contracts that much better serve our highest destiny.
Saturday 2/27: Mercury Conjunct Neptune (6:04 AM)
Best to avoid signing important contracts today as we could miss the fine print. We feel both dreamy and connected to all that is. Great for channeling, meditation, watching a positive film, reading a novel, healing and artistic creation. Not so good for endeavors requiring hard work, discipline and logic. Friendships developed today are spiritually inspiring.
Sunday 2/28: Sun Conjunct Jupiter (2:44 AM)
Our enthusiasm, positive energy and warmth open many doors today. We are at the right time, in the right place, with the right people. Everything seems to magically fall into place. Synchronicity manifests miracles. A day of great financial abundance. Divinely ordained luck accompanies our every step.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
