Newsletter - February 2014
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Berkana, Right Action This Rune requires of us to be in perfect integrity with ourselves and others. Enlightenment and personal honesty go hand in hand. As we do the best we can in all circumstances, the world around us gets organized. It takes courage to be truthful. This could mean walking away from a situation, breaking up with someone or turning our back to the known. But no matter what we have to leave behind, when coming from our hearts, even if at first things look grim, better situations will eventually unfold, leading us to our highest destiny.
Mercury turns retrograde on Thursday Feb 6 at 1:43 PM until Friday 2/28 at 6:00 AM between 3º18’ Pisces and 18º10’ Aquarius. Its shadow period remains until March 20th. Mercury retrograde periods are always wonderful for reconnecting with old friends, visiting places we haven’t seen in a while and remembering projects that had been collecting dust. During the next 3 weeks, we are concerned with oneness, the mystical dimension of life and a deeper understanding of our spiritual roots. After Feb 12, humanitarian endeavors could occupy our minds, as well as unusual thoughts, connections with extra terrestrial forces and inventions that help people live a better life. We are likely to draw to ourselves original people who bring a wind of freedom.
Jupiter continues being retrograde this whole monthbetween 16º03’ and 12º17’ Cancer. Its shadow period remains until June 2nd, 2014. An important period to tap into our deeper resources to create the money we need. We are constantly reminded that money doesn’t come from a person or a job, but directly from the divine and the way we feel about abundance. We could be called to go through our closets and give away what we no longer need nor like so that if may benefit someone else. We could remember a project that has been collecting dust that has great lucrative potentials. A month to continue being generous both with what we have and who we are.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation starts on Friday 2/14 with the Full Moon in Leo. Take out as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and put them out on a balcony, in a garden, or near a window to be charged by the Full Moon at exactly 11:22 AM (you can place them before until after that time).
On Friday 2/29 on the New Moon in Pisces, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are basking in the moonlight at 11:59 PM (you can put them out up to several hours prior to that time). Once that moment has passed (even if several hours later, or in the morning), staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….
Thursday 2/6: Mercury turns retrograde (1:43 PM)
Kindly refer to the first paragraph.
Tuesday 2/11: Sun Square Saturn (11:57 AM)
Important not to fall prey to pessimism. We could be a little down on ourselves, more attentive to our shortcomings than to our strengths. We are structured, disciplined, hard working and focused on our short and long term goals and ambitions. If we are careful to remain present to the present and not in what could or should have been done, we could accomplish a lot today.
Wednesday 2/12: Mercury enters Aquarius (7:30 PM till March 17)
During the next 3 weeks, our thinking is original, inventive and futuristic. We are drawn to unusual topics and unorthodox people. Our social circle expands in stimulating ways. We attract a patchwork of personalities who open us to new ideas and exciting concepts. Humanitarian projects are particularly appealing.
Friday 2/14: Full Moon in Leo (3:35 PM), Sun Trine Mars (6:06 PM)
A wonderful day for glamour, the performing arts and anything that makes us center stage. Our creativity and radiance shine in ways that connect us to our inner child. Positive relationships with children are favored. We feel dynamic. Our energy is geared towards manifestation into the physical.
Saturday 2/15: Sun Conjunct Mercury (12:22 PM)
A day of clear, direct and positive communications. Great for social activities, meeting with friends and exchanging ideas. Public speaking, writing and listening are favored. Wonderful for getting all those e-mails out and making those phones calls. It is easy to reach others. We are persuasive and yet respectful of differences in opinions.
Sunday 2/16: Mercury Trine Mars (0:19 AM)
Verbal exchanges are dynamic and direct. We express what we feel with courage and clarity. There is no hidden agenda. Everything is out in the open. No idle talk today. Our words lead to positive actions. Great for motivational speeches and inspiring others to stand in their truth and fight for their beliefs.
Tuesday 2/18: Sun enters Pisces (10:00 AM until March 20), Mercury Square Saturn (11:11 PM)
The next 3 weeks bring out the dreamers in us. Wonderful for artistic creativity, channeling, healing -especially with sound and crystals-, meditation and connecting with the angelic realms. The veil between dimensions is thinning and we are more than ever sensitive to vibrations. This could lead to the need to sleep more and enjoy vivid, premonitory dreams. Today, more specifically, our thinking is serious. We could decide to clear our desks of backlogged work. Important however not to fall prey to pessimistic thinking. Focusing on the areas where we could fail, greatly limits our potential for growth and expansion.
Sunday 2/23: Sun Conjunct Neptune (10:11 AM)
We could feel a little spacey today. A great day for meditation, spiritual healing and channeling. We are connected to beauty and the oneness of all life. A day at sea or listening to classical music with a background of waves could prove very calming. Artists could be particularly inspired. Creativity is enhanced. Not great however for any work requiring precision and attention to facts and numbers as we could miss some important data.
Monday 2/24: Venus Sextile Saturn (8:50 PM)
A great day to truly commit to a love relationship from both our hearts and our heads. Our engagement is not impulsive, but dictated by wisdom and clarity. We are clear on what we share and what we don’t share. If in no relationship, we become conscious of exactly what we require from a love partner. A shaky union may not survive this transit. The break would be almost rational and devoid of drama, in an evidence that the 2 people involved are simply no longer matched.
Tuesday 2/25: Jupiter Square Uranus (11:33 PM)
Strange occurrences could happen during a long distance trip. Unusual circumstances could make us meet wise ones walking to the sound of their own drummer, who in turn help us break free from more traditional philosophies of life. Social unrest could bring some deep inner questioning. We could contemplate emigrating for political or financial reasons. A trip to a faraway country we feel particularly connected to, could bring major breakthroughs in consciousness.
Friday 2/28: Mercury turns direct (6:00 AM), Sun Trine Jupiter (8:05 PM), New Moon in Pisces (11:59 PM)
Today, communication could be a little wobbly still. Keys could be lost, mail erased before being read or appointments missed. People seem a little off. As the day progresses, all will return to its usual order and forward thinking will lead to more dynamic progress. We are anchored in the mystical and the magical, with a deep feeling for beauty and the oneness of all that is. We are super confident in our capacities and enthusiastic. Our faith in life and in ourselves makes us feel that nothing is impossible. This positive attitude opens many doors to us, bringing great new lucrative and expansive opportunities.
