Lunar Eclipse on Monday 2/8 at 21º00’ Leo at 6:29 AM.
In the Sabian Symbols, this degree is: “A carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission”. A Lunar Eclipse is always a chance to leave the past behind and resolutely move towards the future. This particular eclipse asks us to open our hearts and communicate our truth. Let us however never forget that what is said on an eclipse day is irreversible. It is a also a chance to balance work with play and to expand our personal creativity. Relationships with children should be enhanced by this transit, as well as our inner emotions surrounding wealth and glamour. An opportunity to better understand how we can manifest abundance in our lives.
Saturn continues to be retrograde this whole month between 20º52’ and 19º02’ Virgo.
These degrees are respectively symbolized by “a girls’ basketball team”, “a caravan of cars headed to the West Coast” and “ a swimming race”. These tree degrees point towards reaching higher goals, relocation and competitiveness. We are required to excel in our personal discipline and to continue to challenge ourselves further. No matter how far we have come and how much we have accomplished, we can still fine-tune our consciousness of ourselves and the world around us. In a need for expansion, we could be drawn to relocate to warmer or more open surroundings. We could also be drawn to joining humanitarian group efforts.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation begins on Monday 2/9
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 Leo (Lunar Eclipse) at 6:29 AM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon.
On Tuesday 2/22 at 5:35 PM
Take out your Full Moon charged papers and write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Pisces. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Monday 2/2: Venus enters Taurus (7:22 PM till July 5)
During the 5 next months, we should feel more sensual and drawn to nature than usual. We appreciate the simple pleasures of life such as cooking, smelling the flowers and art. Money helps us afford more luxury as well as create more comfortable circumstances. Peace and harmony feel very nurturing. A great period to deepen an existing romantic relationship or start a new one, to take care of our body and enhance our beauty.
Wednesday 2/2: Mars enters Aquarius (7:56 AM till March 12)
During the next few months, we could become actively involved in humanitarian or scientific endeavors. A great time to begin any form of athletic training that will help us create the body we want and reach higher levels of energy and mental clarity. Modern technology (computers) or racing could seem appealing. Personal commitment to friends, groups or organizations is favored. Leadership abilities are enhanced.
Thursday 2/5: Saturn Opposition Uranus (3:00 AM), Venus Square Pluto (8:23 PM)
The old and the new conflict today. We could feel pressure between the need to carry on duties and responsibilities and assert our personal independence and freedom. Curbing our rebellion enables us to touch more conventional people with unusual and innovative ideas. The line between being brilliant and irrational, is very fine today. Selfishness or lack of integrity could cause a fall from grace as well as reversals of fortune. Our emotions tonight are intense and passionate but if we’re not careful, could also lead to separations. Before entering any partnership, particularly romantic or financial, we should examine our motivations closely to avoid any losses.
Monday 2/9: Lunar Eclipse (6:29 AM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Thursday 2/12: Sun Conjunct Neptune (2:21 AM)
An excellent day for artists who are particularly inspired by this transit. We could feel a little spaced-out and dreamy. We may need more sleep than usual. Meditation, the ocean or mysticism are appealing and beneficial. As we search for beauty around and within us, we could fee more romantically inclined. There is magic in the air. This however, is not a good day for anything rational or for signing contracts.
Saturday 2/21: Sun Sextile Pluto (0:01 AM)
A great day for self-transformation as well as scientific or occult research. Our need for profound answers to our questions leads to some startling realizations and a great expansion of consciousness. Our passion generates new ideas that help us change our life circumstances. Becoming a law unto ourselves, we are able to make some intense readjustments.
Monday 2/23: Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (10:53 PM)
A great day for a long distance trip, as well as anything related to the law, religion and/or higher education. Communication is positive and expansive. Great for gathering with friends, for attending or giving a conference or seminar as well as for studying a foreign culture or interacting with foreigners or people who travel. Focusing on the silver lining of every cloud, we feel adventurous, open-minded and enthusiastic.
Wednesday 2/25: Mercury Sextile Venus (2:59 PM)
We are able to express difficult things nicely. Our exchanges with others are peaceful, harmonious and positive. A good day for a date, renewing our vows or gathering with friends. Phone calls, letters and e-mails should be very pleasant today. Great for gift offering, attending a gallery opening or an elegant reception.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
