February astrological forecast

February 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Gebo “commitment”. In the notion of commitment is the concept of promise, pledge and engagement. It is only by committing fully to a path, a person, a project, values, that we can reap true results. When we are wishy-washy about things, when we waver too much, when we don’t honor our word and don’t keep our promises, we don’t accomplish much, seem superficial or worse, unstable, and become untrustworthy to others. If the path we committed to is not the best for us, just the act of giving ourselves fully to it will open another one, more adapted to our needs. If we stay at the surface of things, we shall keep starting over and over without ever accomplishing anything of value. On the other hand, if the path we chose proves not to have been the best, all the efforts we shall have put into the creation of what we thought we wanted, are never lost nor in vain.

 

 

No retrograde planet this month! This is extremely rare. For once, we are all caught up! No re-visiting any aspect of our lives nor tying loose ends! A time to move forward with no strings attached.

 

The year of the Earth Pig starts on Feb 5 until January 24, 2020. A year of benevolent efforts to reconcile differences and install peace in troubled parts of the world. On a personal level, a great year for reinventing ourselves, clearing our debts and creating new financial opportunities. Some people may disappear from our lives, while others, more in harmony with our frequency, join our close circle of trusted friends. Communication, as well as studying are enhanced. An excellent period of time to let go of habits that no longer serve us and also for enjoying life more. If we have been thinking of taking a sabbatical, this would be the perfect year to do so! Marriages and births multiply this year. A significant year for bringing more joy  into our life and indulging in more pleasure but without excess!

This month’s intentional meditation started on Sunday January 20 at 9:16 PM, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Leo (Solar Eclipse). Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

 

On Monday 2/4, 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 out by exactly 1:04 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

 

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Tuesday 2/19. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Virgo at exactly 7:54 AM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

 

 

Friday 2/1: Mars Square Pluto (7:15 PM)

Impulsive actions could be particularly destructive today, both mentally and physically. If we are not careful, stress, jealousies, undercurrents of anger or violence could undermine our efforts. Facing those situations with honesty, integrity and courage may be the only way to create positive changes. This will however require much determination and inner strength on our part as the opposition could be unexpectedly insidious.

 

Saturday 2/2: Venus Trine Uranus (3:40 PM)

Exciting social encounters mark this day. We could have a sudden, unusual attraction to a person who frees us to be ourselves. The connection might however be more fun than truly enduring. We could be inspired by new ways of making money. Our esthetic tastes are modern, even futuristic in some cases, definitely drawing us to the unusual.  

 

Sunday 2/3: Mercury Sextile Jupiter (1:55 PM), Venus enters Capricorn (2:30 PM till March 1)

Our honesty and integrity with ourselves and others, is particularly rewarded today. A great day to learn a new language or journey to another country. Our mind is open, tolerant, creative and positive. Our contacts with others are warm and generous. During the coming month, we take our love relationships seriously. We might even prefer to be alone rather than with the wrong person. A good time to either commit to another if the connection has been good, or separate if our path together has been rocky for a while. We are also wiser in our financial dealings.

 

Thursday 2/7: Sun Sextile Jupiter (4:33 PM), Mercury Sextile Mars (5:25 PM)

Opportunities to further our career and complete our projects abound. We feel positive, confident and in mastery of our talents. Our positive energy opens many new doors. We are direct in our speech, are not afraid to take initiatives and to forge ahead with courage and energy.

 

Saturday 2/9: Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:53 PM)

A day of unplanned changes and unexpected encounters. The more flexible we are, the easier and the more fun this day will be! As we flow present to present, from moment to moment, we are likely to find that what could have seemed like a frustrating disruption, ends up opening new exciting opportunities.   

 

Sunday 2/10: Mercury enters Pisces (2:51 AM till April 17)

During the next two months, our mind is very sensitive to vibrations, the invisible, impressions and signs. Artistic creation is particularly favored. Our appreciation of beauty is enhanced with a greater need for peace, harmony and balance. Our thoughts are inspired. Violence and dark images could be more traumatizing than usual. We seek oneness, compassion and love in all our interactions with others.

 

Tuesday 2/12: Mars Conjunct Uranus (10:19 PM)

Caution should be exercised while operating a motor vehicle or using sharp objects. Tempers could flare up suddenly and brutally. Best to stay away from any aggressive individual or potentially intense situation. Violent sports should also be avoided today, as accidents could very quickly shift our lives for the worse.

 

Thursday 2/14: Mars enters Taurus (2:51 AM till March 31st)

During the next month and a half, Taurus natives are favored. We ruminate the consequences before leaping into action.  Our projects are thought through in a slow, deliberate and practical manner. We feel more comfortable in nature. Our sensuality is also highlighted. A need to take good care of our body is enhanced. Getting some physical pampering could be a very good use of this transit.

 

Sunday 2/17: Venus Sextile Neptune (0:45 AM), Sun Sextile Uranus (11:54 PM)

A relationship could seem most enchanted and magical and may well stem from a deep soul connection. Artists and healers are particularly inspired today. We should also expect the unexpected and meet sudden changes of plans with excitement as they are likely to prove particularly freeing in the long run. Under this transit, the more we go with the flow, the more gifts we shall receive.

 

Monday 2/18: Venus Conjunct Saturn (2:52 AM), Sun enters Pisces (3:04 PM till March 20th), Mercury Conjunct Neptune (10:37 PM)

Today, a sense of seriousness and responsibility permeates our relationships, making us feel particularly lonely. A relationship begun under this transit will start slowly and carefully, making it very enduring. One that has been shaky for a while, could come to its logical conclusion, without any sense of pain or drama. With this planetary influence, we are not so good with details. Silence, solitude and inspiring topics are attractive. We are drawn to spirituality and beauty.  Not a good day to sign= legally binding documents. During the coming month, we could feel more detached from material concerns and more eager to grow spiritually. Day dreaming could interfere with the work in need of being done. Yet going with the flow helps us find inner peace.

 

Tuesday 2/19: Mercury Sextile Saturn (6:39 PM)

Our thoughts are serious, focused and disciplined. A great day to get through our administrative papers. We seek the company of wiser, sometimes older people. Wonderful for redefining our short and long term goals.

 

Friday 2/22: Mercury Square Jupiter (12:40 PM), Venus Conjunct Pluto (7:49 PM) 

We could overextend ourselves and have exaggerated expectations. Let us be careful of promises we cannot keep or that seem too good to be true. Starting a long distance trip under this transit is ill-advised. A relationship begun today could be particularly passionate, even bordering on the obsessive. Passion and a deep soul link provide a solid basis to an enduring connection that forces us to remove inner blocks to intimacy.

 

Saturday 2/23: Mercury Sextile Pluto (9:15 AM)

Powerful insights into people and situations mark this day. Challenges that had been plaguing us for a while are resolved in a creative manner. Best to lie low. In the face of opposition, communication, compromise and cooperation create benevolent outcomes.

 

Wednesday 2/27: Sun Sextile Mars (6:33 PM)

Challenges are invigorating. A great day for physical activities and to leap into action. The results created are most fulfilling. Our stamina is at an all times’ high. A wonderful day to commit to a dynamic new exercise program. Great also for starting a project requiring leadership abilities, positive energy and impulsive creativity.

 

Wishing you an amazing month of February!

 

In Loving Light.

 

January 2019 astrological forecast

January 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Inguz “Renewal”. What a wonderful and apt way of starting a new year! New year, new beginnings. The chance to start over with good resolutions and reinvent ourselves!

 

Two eclipses this month. Eclipses always mark major evolutionary steps beyond which life will never be the same. Their collective influence is determined by the sign they fall in. Their personal influence is based on where (in which house) they occur in our personal birth chart. Their effects can be felt for up to 19 years.

Saturday 1/5, Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (15º25’) at 5:28 PM. This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “School grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits”. Our body is the vehicle of our soul. This eclipse urges us to listen to its wisdom. Our physical self is a good measure of where we are at. Its pains and sufferings signal places of imbalance in need of rectification. Healing occurs when we see and feel ourselves in whole(holy)ness. This eclipse is also helping us follow our bliss that we may find our perfect job and there also, become the masters of our own destiny.

Sunday 1/20, Lunar Eclipse in Leo (0:52’) at 9:16 PM. This degree is symbolized by: “Blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilized under the spur of ambition”. Circumstance in our lives may shift, structures may change, an old order may come to an abrupt end. Those dissolving situations are forcing us redefine our priorities and create new dynamics in our lives. As we do, we can dream new dreams that revitalize us. This eclipse can help us either find a work that inspires us, or bring inspiration to our existing position. As healing comes to our heart, our physical self is also supported in returning to divine perfection. Relationships are warmer. We feel more generous. A deep interest in a foreign culture could encourage us to travel to a country that opens our heart further and enriches us spiritually.

 

Uranus turns direct on Sunday January 6 at 28º36’ Aries. Its shadow period remains until April 22nd. The image associated with this degree is: “The music of the Spheres”. In the past few months, we have been asked to free ourselves from conditionings, family and educational influences, so that we may individuate. As we stand in our own power, we are also able to connect to the magic of the universe and tap into higher realms of consciousness.

  • From Tuesday 1/1 at 2:26 PM till Wednesday 1/2 at 0:58 AM: when the Moon enters Sagittarius.

Tuesday 1/1: Sun conjunct Saturn (9:49 PM)

A day of serious thoughts and actions. We may be more cautious and measured in our speech and prefer aloneness to being with others. An excellent day to fulfill our duties and responsibilities. Older, more mature people are likely to acknowledge our practical efforts. We are concerned with long term ambitions and are willing to work hard to achieve them.

 

Thursday 1/3: Mercury Trine Uranus (9:12 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans may change suddenly. It is best to remain flexible and not make any binding decision. We may be surprised by people dropping out of our lives, while others we haven’t heard from in a long time, re-emerge, enabling us to reassess how much we have evolved in the past years. We are drawn to unusual characters walking to the sound of their own drummer as well as to futuristic ideas. A day to go with the flow and be present to the present.   

 

Friday 1/4: Sun Sextile Neptune (11:58 AM), Mercury enters Capricorn (7:40 PM) till Wednesday 1/23.

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/7: Venus enters Sagittarius (3:19 AM) till February 4

During the next month, we feel warmer, more generous and adventurous in love than usual. A love interest from another state or country could enter our life for both our spiritual and emotional enrichment. We may also fall in love with another culture.  

 

Tuesday 1/8: Mercury Square Mars (2:05 AM)

Not a good day to get in a fight or deal with potentially angry or violent people. Tempers could flare up and become quickly out of control. We should also be careful while driving. Red lights or stop signs could be disrespected very easily. Best to channel our energy into a project requiring enthusiasm and physical energy.

 

Friday 1/11: Sun Conjunct Pluto (3:36 AM)

Our leadership abilities and our charisma exert a strong influence on our environment. We may find that some people oppose a passive resistance to our power, but if we remain strong and fair, we can inspire many and get a lot accomplished today.

 

Monday 1/14: Mercury Sextile Neptune (5:14 AM)

Mental confusion, as well as miscommunications could occur today. Not so good for signing legally binding documents nor for dealing with anything requiring attention to details. A day best spent day-dreaming, watching a positive movie or reading an inspiring book. Artists and healers could channel beautiful messages.

 

Friday 1/18: Venus Trine Mars (8:50 AM), Mercury Conjunct Pluto (12:01 PM), Sun Square Uranus (5:30 PM)

The masculine and the feminine are balanced today, leading to harmonious relationships and interesting social encounters. We are able to X-ray situations and people, calling a spade a spade. Important however to stay very present to the moment as unusual circumstances could occur that disrupt our plans and project us in a completely different reality, revealing things that were previously hidden.  

 

Sunday 1/20: Lunar Eclipse (9:16 PM) in Leo (0º52’)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/21: Mars Square Saturn (3:48 AM)

Stress, heavy unfair responsibilities or an injustice could feel particularly limiting today. We could be rejected for no valid reason. The world could feel like a cold, cruel place. Important to use self-discipline to curb the need to lash back impulsively.

 

Tuesday 1/22: Venus Conjunct Jupiter (4:26 AM)

A good day to throw or attend a party. An act of random kindness could brighten our day. We could get a promotion and feel more generous than usual with those we cherish. A love relationship begun today is spiritually and intellectually enriching. Wonderful for a  long distance journey that confronts us to a new culture.

 

Wednesday 1/23: Mercury Square Uranus (3:13 AM), Mercury enters Aquarius (9:50 PM) till February 11

Unexpected events, unbalanced people, could disrupt our plans today. Harsh words could be spoken impulsively, alienating us from others. During the next 3 weeks, our mind is open to the unusual. Ufology could be attractive, as are inventions connecting science and metaphysics.

 

Friday 1/25: Mars Trine Jupiter (9:53 AM)

A wonderful day to begin a new exercise program and indulge in outdoor activities requiring an adventurous spirit. A new project begun today is fueled with enthusiasm, faith and trust in its positive outcome. Great also for a long-distance journey requiring physical stamina.

 

Tuesday 1/29: Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:52 PM)

A good day for active, direct, positive communications. Let us make those phone calls, write those letters and in general, clear our desk of backlogged work. We speak our mind with clarity. Our interactions with others are pleasant and mutually beneficial.

 

Thursday 1/31: Saturn Sextile Neptune (6:21 AM)

The perfect day to give a practical form to our dreams. Our idealism is grounded in reality. A secure condition could dissolve, allowing us to reinvent it. A very good day for artists who are both esthetically inspired and have business acumen.

 

Wishing you the best of new years!

 

In Loving Light.

December astrological forecast

 

December 2018

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz, “the gateway”. Life is made of choices. Our destiny unfolds one choice at a time. We are required to discern what will lead us to our highest good from what may hinder our growth. This month, we are faced with important decisions. If we feel confused, it may be useful for each, to create a list of the pros and the cons and assign a number to each bullet point (1: not important, 10: most important) and see for each option whether we are in the plus or the minus, and by how much. This simple exercise will help us reach internal clarity. An important month that brings this year to a conclusion and prepares the next. Let us choose what benefits our highest growth!

Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period lasts until April 23rd 2019. The degrees covered this month (29º09’ - 28º37’ Aries) are symbolized by: “The music of the spheres” and “A duck pond and its brood”. On the road to individuation, if it is important to keep our eyes on the higher realms, to connect to the mysteries of the universe and find our place in the greater scheme of things, it is also essential to remember our family, biological and spiritual. The friends we choose, the like-spirited people, our soul sisters and brothers are the ones who support our evolution, assist us in times of need, and present us the mirror in which we can look at ourselves with honesty. No matter how lonely we may feel, we are never isolated from the rest of humanity. Each life is connected to all and has repercussions. Let us always remember our individual responsibility on the evolution of consciousness of the collective.

Mercury turns direct on December 7 at 27º17’ Scorpio. Its shadow period remains until December 25, 2018. This degree is represented by: “The King of the Fairies approaching his domain”. The first week of December is still marked by a need to investigate esoteric mysteries, the mystical and the secrets of our own spiritual lineage and identity. We could be enticed to revisit such topics as life after death, reincarnation and the profound wisdom of ancient advanced civilizations.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Thursday 11/22 when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Gemini. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

On Thursday 12/6 on the New Moon in Sagittarius, 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 out by exactly 11:20 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Saturday 12/22. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Cancer at exactly 9:49 AM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

Saturday 12/1: Mercury re-enters Scorpio (3:12 AM till December 12)

During the next 11 days, our mind is inquisitive. We seek deep answers to profound questions. We are drawn to the metaphysical, are fascinated by secrets and may wish to investigate the mysteries of life after death and sexuality. Because superficial conversations are not interesting to us, solitude could feel more attractive. Our abilities to concentrate, as well as X-ray situations and people are particularly enhanced.

Sunday 12/2: Venus enters Scorpio (9:02 AM till January 7), Sun Square Mars (4:35 PM)

During the next month, our emotions run deep. We seek loyalty, trustworthiness and integrity in our relationships. Our feelings being very black and white, we tend to avoid lukewarm or wishy-washy people. We need to experience and express passion. Our aesthetic tastes are also more intense than usual. Today, more specifically, could bring some conflicts. Tempers flare up quickly. Direct words are spoken without much prior thought, creating irreparable separations. Potentially aggressive people or situation should be avoided, as they could easily degenerate into violence. Extra caution is advised while driving a motor vehicle or using any sharp object.

 Wednesday 12/5: Sun Square Neptune (2:22 PM)

We could feel quite dreamy today, inefficient and vaguely anxious. We could also be quite influenceable. Best to stay away from negative people as their words could make us more depressed than necessary. A day best used focusing on the positive, listening to uplifting music, watching a feel-good movie or reading an inspiring book.

 Thursday 12/6: Mercury turns direct (1:22 PM)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today communications could still be a little chaotic. Everything returns to normal tomorrow.

Friday 12/7: Mars Conjunct Neptune (6:12 AM)

Physically, we could feel rather weak today, dreamy and unprone to making any effort in the “real” world. A day best spent resting, relaxing, taking it easy and going with the flow. Good for creative craft work, meditation and aquatic exercise.

Wednesday 12/12: Mercury enters Sagittarius (3:43 PM till January 5)

The next 3 weeks are perfect for long distance traveling, learning a new language, taking an interest in a different culture, furthering our education especially in the areas of the law, religion and/or philosophy. We feel more positive than usual, exert more self-confidence, and in general have more faith and trust in life, in ourselves as well as in others.

Sunday 12/16: Venus Sextile Saturn (6:27 AM), Mars Sextile Pluto (10:53 PM)

A good day to be very clear on a romantic involvement. We are able to look at a relationship with realism, a certain degree of detachment and a deeper understanding of its implications in our life. The perfect time to either end it or lift it to the next level of commitment. Focused artistic work leads to solid results. A good day for intense physical efforts as well as for starting a project requiring passion, power, stamina and courage.

Thursday 12/20: Sun Trine Uranus (8:21 AM)

A day of sudden and unexpected changes. It is important today to go with the flow, be present from moment to moment, and face challenges with creative inventiveness.  Reconnecting with someone from our past could help us appreciate all the changes we have gone through. A stimulating day that could bring us much freedom from the known while encouraging us to manifest our uniqueness.

Friday 12/21: Venus Trine Neptune (9:12 AM), Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (9:37 AM), Sun enters Capricorn (2:23 PM till January 20)

During this coming month we could be much more organized, efficient and hard-working than usual. An excellent time to make short and long-term plans, reassess our goals, as well as be clear on our values and priorities. 

Today, more specifically, a relationship could feel enchanted. But if it seems too good to be true, beware, as it may just be so and once the pink bubble has burst, end in a big disappointment. On the positive side, if we are careful not to let our imagination take over, there could be a soul link and a telepathic connection with another. Our esthetic sense is particularly refined. We want to focus on beauty around us and in each person we meet. This transit is particularly inspiring for artists who are able through their art to pierce the veils between dimensions.

Today, we also feel very generous, enthusiastic and confident. Let us however be careful to not promise more than we can deliver, as our words could exceed our capacity to fulfill them. Let us beware not to fall prey to those who would take advantage of our wishful mental state. Excellent for a long-distance trip which will expose us to distant cultures and expand our understanding of this world. Very good also for learning a new language, furthering our education or taking an interest in philosophy, religion or the law. Our mind is expansive, positive and adventurous.

Monday 12/24: Mercury Square Neptune (4:33 PM)

Confusion could mark this day. Our mind is not good with details and may even be quite impractical. We could feel dreamy and unfocused, more attracted to a world of our imagination than dealing with reality. Not a good day for signing legally binding documents or anything requiring concentration and discipline. We could be more tired and sensitive to noise, negativity, ugliness and darkness, than usual. 

Friday 12/28: Venus Sextile Pluto (1:27 PM)

A new or existing love relationship could make us experience more passion than we have ever known. Compromise, graciousness and compliance for the sake of peace and harmony, ease our social life. Artists could work with more intensity and creativity than usual.

Monday 12/31: Mars enters Aries (6:20 PM till February 14)

Aries natives are favored during the next 6 weeks. All others should also enjoy higher energy, feel more confident and optimistic. A great period to launch a project requiring enthusiasm, courage, positive energy, determination and physical stamina.  

 

Wishing you the happiest of holidays!

 

In Loving Light.

November astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank rune! We are entering the unknown, the unforeseeable… But also, at work in our lives, is the sum result (karma) of all our thoughts and actions. Everything is possible this month. We are reminded that we are the ultimate creators of our reality and that whatever we are reaping based on our past choices, that we do not enjoy, can be changed with a transformation of attitude.

September astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ansuz “Signals, the messenger”. A reminder to be impeccable in our thoughts and words as they create our reality and impact others as well as the world around us. We are also required to pay attention to both the obvious and the subtle messages we receive on a constant basis that validate or invalidate the choices we are making.

March 2018 astrological forecast

Wyrd “the homeland”. We are requested this month to examine our  karmic lineage, as well as understand how we are continuing and/or breaking our family tree. The questions we need to ask ourselves revolve around what we have done with our gifts so far, how we have lived our life, what we have created that may continue beyond us and what our real roots are, both in this lifetime and throughout our various incarnations.

December's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Raido. “Journey, communication, union, reunion”. A perfect relationship is built on love, respect, understanding and tolerance. Communication is essential to growth. An enemy is a friend we have not listened to or taken the time to know. Even in the greatest of relationships, occasional separations are necessary to adjust our frequencies, regroup, recover our power and know ourselves independently from the other.

October's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Mannaz “the Self, community”. Knowing ourselves, our talents, our weaknesses, our potential is essential to establish solid connections. We each exist as a complete whole, but our relations to others are what define us. Community provides exchange, confrontation, growth and evolution. Let us be aware that our individual choices determine the fate of the whole of humanity.

August's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Laguz “the lake”. The lake reflects all its surroundings and yet remains impenetrable. Its secrets are found by diving into its depths. Becoming sacred witnesses to our environment, in serenity, without judgment, helps us be aware of what is really going on around us. By the same token, we become powerful mirrors for others to see themselves. But it is when we go within, that we really transform our lives. Only when we acknowledge and bring to the surface the more challenging aspects of ourselves, do we become truly transparent.

June's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ehwaz “Horse”. A month of profound changes. By letting go of too intense an attachment to the mundane, we can feel and express our freedom. If we have wanted to create new things in our lives (move, start a different job, take up a hobby…) now is the time to fully commit to bringing these projects into manifestation. A month of personal empowerment by banking on our talents and acting on our visions!
