February 3 – 9, 2013: Optimism, gentleness, networking, faith, friendship and sharing your renewed vision of the future with others are high lighted during the week ahead.
This week the astro-weather has definitely taken a turn for the better, as a matter of fact, the first week of February sets the tone for an entire month of focusing on the world at large and opening your heart as you search for a greater sense of fulfillment and peace.
Last week the planet Jupiter, which had been retrograde in Gemini for 4 months, turned around and began slowly moving in a forward direction. Note: This the first period of time since January 8, 2012 when there are no planets retrograde and though it will only last for about two weeks (until February 18 when Saturn stations Rx) and will amplify the feeling that all systems are on go. Additionally, two planetary shifts took place the end of last week. First Mars moved into compassionate Pisces. Then a bit later on the same day Venus moved from earthy industrious Capricorn into the airy, more egalitarian sign of Aquarius.
You can expect to feel as if you've been released from the past and can freely move forward with optimism and a clear vision of your future. So enjoy the weather and be willing to take action based on faith in the power of your beliefs. Let your imagination guide you and trust that your intuitive abilities are at their peak. An increased spirit of friendliness and generosity that will amplify the idealistic, highly intuitive and romantic quality of the week. Be inspired by the week’s warm hearted interactions because these will deepen your commitment to be more open and loving.
Positively, this is definitely a highly imaginative time and what I've just written is the higher vibration of the aspects. Negatively, you might not be seeing reality clearly, which could lead to confusion or disappointed or things might just seem a little foggy.
This week ends with an Aquarius New Moon which occurs on February 9 (or February 10, depending where you live). Read - Inner Music - The New Moon in Fixed Air (Aquarius)
My advice: Do a lot of reality checks and as the week progresses and you feel you’re ready to mentally push the limits, take care because though you’ll feel you’re fighting for a moral or ethical right, you might just be overly confident and not thinking clearly. Be gentle and be kind, because there is a real possibility that you could act hastily or clash with others regarding philosophical differences.
