February 4 - 10, 2013 is the last week in the year of the dragon. Action planet Mars is making important contacts firing up communications and dreamy ideals. Clever Mercury, shifts into mystical Pisces. Expect glimpses of your ideal future. The new moon is shining through the detached perspective of humanitarian Aquarius. This is certainly an interesting week in the cosmos. Keep notes and pounce on unexpected opportunities.
Monday Mars and Neptune merge energies. Such different planets joining forces can be confusing. If you are usually a go-getter you might feel frustrated by fuzzy thinking. It's like looking through fog. Nothing can be certain. Mars is a fiery energy, a mover and a shaker, our impetus to get moving on things. Neptune captures our imaginations, provides fodder for our dreams, connects us to realms unknown in the concrete world. You may find napping necessary today; go with the flow and consider a nap the height of productivity. It is in silent repose that our Souls can get through. Visionary art is created under such an influence: movies, music, songs, all forms of art. Take note!
Tuesday Mercury shifts from Aquarius in to Pisces. Watch again for confusion. Clarity can be tricky in the kingdom of water. Even when you come prepared and wear your goggles things are distorted underwater. Such is the energy of Pisces. The best use of this energy is always spiritual. Anything that connects your to nature, to your version of God, is a great place to focus for the next eight weeks. Mercury rules communications so its influence is broad. And due to a retrograde this month it will be making its way through Pisces for the next eight weeks. If you wanted to get closer to your inner guidance, guardian angels, or spiritual self, now is the time.
Creative thinking will be fully supported and you may just start seeing dead people as your other- worldly abilities improve. Personally, I think it would be freaky to see those that have not crossed over, so I am pretty careful to make sure that my light bubble of protection is always firmly in place with daily intention. I highly recommend you take your energetic protection seriously because you will be much more sensitive for the next couple of months. Pisces feels.
Wednesday will be a day of blessings. Good things can happen effortlessly when Venus, ruler of what we value, connects in a harmonious relationship with the great benefactor Jupiter. Will you meet your soulmate? The perfect partner for a new work project? A long lost friend? Look for the good and the beautiful and that is what you will find. Truth and freedom bolster you today- intend on both. This is the day to dream a little dream into reality. Make an effort to cast your highest visions for your grandest future out to the Universe. Ask for it all! Think big! If you don't ask you won't get. What is your heart's desire?
Friday the Moon moves into Aquarius. This sign has an affinity with humanity, but can often take or leave personal relationships. There is an odd mix of energy when Mercury and Mars fuse in Pisces. Confusing Inspiration is possible. Yet, this energy may produce an amazing connection with another Soul, a deep and beautiful union you have felt many times before. When you meet someone from a past life there is often an instant familiarity, and a desire to share your past to catch up on this lifetime. Our lives are populated with past life connections but its always a pleasure to meet an old friend again. Look for such a connection today.
New Moon in Aquarius is a perfect time to start something new. You will have a heightened ability to cut loose from the past now. This is perfect for starting on a new course. Life needs to be shaken up to keep things moving along. We can resist change, but life is sure to come along and drop it in our laps anyway. So being a change maker is how to stay in your own power. Anxiety is caused by not taking action. Attempting to resist the flow of life. Now you can safely charge forth in new directions. Plan that move to a new city. Quit that restrictive job. You can feel the pull to freedom. And you can see how we all need to feel free to truly thrive. Find your freedom so you can help free others. Today at the New Moon you can set your intentions for change and watch in awe as they flash into reality in unexpected ways.
Sunday is the Chinese New Year. 2013 is the year of the snake. We will be shedding the skin of our old lives and transforming this year. More on the Year of the water snake next week. Enjoy the shifting tides this week, ride the waves. Life is busy and not always so clear. Take time for rest. Retreat from the regular world of daily activities to listen within. If we don't go within we go without." Namaste and blessed be!
