February 18 - 24, 2013 The Sun moves into imaginative Pisces. Task master Saturn goes retrograde, back tracking previous territory to help you be certain you are making the right moves. Mercury is back tracking this week too. Patience is a virtue, which mercury finds irritating, Saturn though, understands the necessity of one solid step at a time. With all the Pisces energy this week, and for the next month, do your best to carve out time to feed your spiritual self.
There is a Pisces party in the cosmos this week. You can dress up or down for this party. Make believe is an integral part of the Pisces energy. Here you can sense loved ones that have shifted into other realities. Hear music from other dimensions. Write a fantastic screenplay. Dance and express yourself through movement. Feed the homeless, rescue an animal. Be creative, paint, draw, sculpt. Your Higher Self will be communicating with you. Your Soul can be heard. The trees want to talk, the water contains messages, crystals can help you resonate more harmoniously. This is the time when you can tune into the reality that we are all connected. And, remember: nothing is as it seems. Also, Pisces rules the feet so take care of your tootsies. And, try not to buy shoes you don't need. Pisces often have a tendency to hoard shoes.
Midweek Neptune joins the sun. Look for the unexplainable. Connect from your heart. You may be able to see the ideal you today, and perhaps the ideal in everything and everyone. Be a little cautious about long term commitment, you might be able to see the potential- which is really just a possible future reality. So wait until this fog of dreamy images clears next month. Do enjoy the realms of expanded realities though. Indulge your sixth sense with crystals, tarot, astrology, tea leaves. Energy healing of all kinds is super affective now. Also homeopathics and herbal remedies are potent and possibly dangerous if not used properly. Enjoy the magician in you. Think magical thoughts to create a magical life.
Saturn can be difficult only because we humans tend to want things to be easy. Which is a fine idea in theory, but Saturn likes us to know what we are doing, to have a firm grasp and lots of experience. With Saturn Retrograding plunging ahead would be fool-hardy. To use this energy like wise old Saturn wants you to you can start reviewing all your plans. Before implementing the new, you must be sure you are covering all your bases. Are you going forward in the most efficient, joyous, way? Are you laying a solid foundation? Are good people around you? People that love and support who you really are. Be diligent and modest. Be decisive, but thoughtful. If you race ahead you might get caught in the negative stuff, like parking tickets and the irritations of bureaucracy. Saturn will teach us what we need to know. Be a devoted student of smart choices and Saturn will be so proud. And you will feel sooo secure. When Saturn heads direct in July you will be totally ready. For now, take it slow and review your obligations and responsibilities. Are these necessary for your growth? Or are you stuck in an old story? You will have answers to all of these questions when Saturn starts making forward progress again.
On the weekend Mercury also slides back for three weeks. This can cause things to be tricky. You may not be making sense. Your electronics can get mysterious. Now it works now it doesn't. It is also a common time for the past to be revisited. What went down in the last three months. Take inventory to be sure you are headed in the direction of progress. Mercury is in Pisces during this retrograde so you may have extra help getting the spiritual perspective. Every complication has a spiritual solution so relax control and stay alert to guidance this next three weeks.
You will no doubt feel a shift in the general energy of the cosmos this week. Your sensitivities will be heightened. Rest and eat nourishing foods. Care for yourself and others with lots of free time and space to relax and review. It's the down time that brings our inspired solutions or our next new mission. Be receptive and gentle with those you love and you can expect the same in return. Love is all we need. Love and patience. May both be yours.
