Horoscopes

February 2014

The image of the water bearer is misleading, as Aquarius is an Air sign.  The Celtic festival of Brigantia celebrates the rebirth of spirit, February 2nd, aka Ground Hog day.  Brigantia is the triple Moon Goddess; she is youth, maturity and old age. As the first new moon of this month also welcomes the Chinese year of the Horse, these are busy interesting times.  Uranus, the planet of Aquarius is unruly and chaotic.  He demands transformation of consciousness.  The veils will be lifted and mysteries revealed.  Contemplate floating a candle in a bowl of water.

Aries ruled by Mars

When and where you will move forward is still a bit confusing.  You appreciate fairness but weighing every option just isn’t for you.  Be very very careful to not move without observation.  The summer will bring more activity than you can handle.  A hobby that includes fire and metal is a good option for the moment; this can be fixing an old car or building a sculpture.

Taurus ruled by Venus

We often hear the phrase “Timing is everything”.  For this month it holds particularly true.  The new moon on the first precipitates new action and a struggle to not stay still.  Capricorn’s movements are usually methodical; the pressure to charge without thinking is overwhelming.  Be kind to the volcano that needs to erupt.

Aries ruled by Mars

You are being forced to learn diplomacy.  Any physical exertions are demanding discipline and containment.  Take last minute invitations as what comes out of the blue is for you this month.  Your secret name is initiative, but the lethargy surrounding you is too hard to motivate.

Taurus ruled by Venus

The ladies in your life are carrying the puritanical principle.  Be accepting and find fantasy in the leaves of your books and Ipod.  After the full Moon on the 15th, a journey may come up that you might want to take advantage of.  Venus is not happy with the constraint of Saturn, but you know how to brush it off.

Astrology for December 2013

Jupiter, the planet of plenty is particularly blessed at the moment.  As the ruler of Sagittarius he is front and center this month.  Beginning with Thanksgiving through the seasonal holidays of Winter Solstice and Christmas, we are consumed with expansion and seeing the bright side of almost everything.  Freedom and improvisation are key words for this planet of unlimited possibilities.

Aries ruled by Mars

Be careful of seduction this month.  You are happily riding on the crest of adventure and longing to travel and be inspired.  You might be called on to be of service, when you would rather be dictating.  Anything electrical or mechanical is highlighted, as are music and speed.

Taurus ruled by Venus

So many of us love this time of year.  Could it be we have a bit of the bear in us and long for hibernation?  The Pluto Persephone myth certainly reinforces this idea with the Queen of the Underworld spending the dark colder months with her spouse.  The mists part for us to be comfy and titillated by the unknown, which is why we wear costumes to hide our outer shell.

Aries ruled by Mars

Your ruler is confined by over analysis.  Action is not easy or forthcoming.  Any attack you plan must be hidden behind closed doors to be successful.  Take up boxing.  Or make pizza by pounding the dough to a super thin crust.

The Autumnal Equinox is the first day of the sign of Libra.  How do you achieve balance?  Contemplation, meditation, body adrenalin through high activity, are different forms of focus, the perception is you teeter on the head of a pin through balance.

It is something we all desire and find hard to achieve.  Desire, acquire, and release is the simple truth of our lives.

Aries ruled by Mars

Allow your ideals to be contained and disciplined.  See your energy as a fire that must be stoked and nurtured.  If there are children around you, observe their trial and error of abilities to be tested.  Riding a bicycle necessitates trusting balance.  Birds float by letting go after the struggle to attain altitude.

Taurus ruled by Venus

Virgo is both discerning and picky. As an earth sign she likes to be grounded. Her ruler Mercury does not always let her do this. The feeling most of us have this time of year is new beginnings. In actuality it is the last stages of the earth’s productivity before going to sleep or dying for the winter. Let the race begin.

Aries ruled by Mars

You will be center stage this month. Innovation is the key to keeping the world turning. You are the torch that lights the Olympics. Focus is usually a good thing if you can still see the periphery. It is important to watch the wee folk on the outskirts of your vision.

Taurus ruled by Venus

You do not mind the scales of justice and diplomacy as long as it is not uncomfortable. The countryside and the vision of hills and fairy mounds bewitch you. Too many people with conflicting emotions wear you out. You have to deal with the folks in authority for a while longer.

Gemini ruled by Mercury

The element of Fire purifies.  The alchemists of Rudolf II in Prague were heavily supported by the Emperor.  Turning lead into gold was one aspect of the alchemical process, the other being transforming the psyche.  John Dee, Tycho Brahe and many other astrologers, scientists, and artists explored the universe of the exterior, the cosmos and the interior of the Psyche at his court.  Modern teachers of metaphysics must explore and redefine in today’s  language, the ideas and disciplines of their contemplations.

Aries ruled by  Mars

The first Fire sign is planning his attack on the fall and all that he wants to accomplish.  You are still having to deal with other people’s feelings in your thinking.  You will have great insights and be ahead of the crowd.  Contemplate rubbing your tummy and patting your head.  Mid month the universe will allow you more action.
