"Water Magic" by Jasmin Junger “Water Magic” by Jasmin Junger

An annular solar eclipse will take place on February 26, 2017 in the sign of Pisces, sign of the fish.  As with all solar eclipses, this is a Pisces New Moon and there are actually a total of five planets in Pisces which makes this an extremely fishy eclipse! Under the influence of Pisces we are inspired to let go of the material world, the “reality based” world, and find inspiration and magic in the realms that cannot easily be seen.

Not only is the New Moon in Pisces, but the Sun and Moon are closely aligned with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, which doubles the watery magic of this eclipse.

During a solar eclipse the light of the Moon, the instinctive subconscious and intuitive realm, covers the light of the Sun and its conscious attention to the world.  Darkness is illuminated by the inner light, but if we are looking at the world through our worldly eyes it will seem dark as dark can be.  This is an opportunity for the inner eye to open and the inner self to make itself known..

At this time we have stelliums (planet groupings) primarily in watery Pisces and fiery Aries – the Aries planets energize us and push us towards action and a force of will while Pisces urges peace and calm and a letting go of our own personal needs to merge with the great Beyond and infinite bliss.  This is no time for action – actions taken now will likely be confused and irrational.  Until the Moon moves into Aries on the 28th, utilize this time to explore the inner reaches of your mind and your heart.  Spend […]

The Mars effect, February 2017: Stocks, politics and personal power

"Event Unknown" “Event Unknown”

Mars went into Aries on January 28th and will remain in that fiery sign of will and adventure through March 9th.  While in Aries, Mars is at its most potent and the aggressive force is permitted full expression, unhampered by the niceties of signs like Libra or Pisces, by practical considerations such as Capricorn and Taurus would exercise, or by reason and intellectual processing such as Gemini and Aquarius would instigate.  It is pure, unadulterated need and drive.

Mars is also bold and especially in Aries, does not hesitate to venture into unknown territory and take untold risks.  We are seeing this in the stock market, which continues to break records as it soars into the stratosphere because of unbridled optimism and the sheer force of momentum.  Currently Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, is forming a challenging opposition to Uranus, planet of radical action.  This planetary combination is ready to break through all kinds of barriers – whether physical, emotional, or ideological.  When we add Pluto’s destructive and transformational force into the mix, we get a powerhouse of movement and upheaval.  Jupiter here is reconnecting Uranus and Pluto for one final dance after nearly eight years of the Uranus/Pluto square.  Although Uranus and Pluto are not in exact alignment to one another, Jupiter “translates” the dynamic by acting as an intermediary over the next few months.  You can see how the current political climate fits perfectly into this drama of radical behavior and action that seems to have no basis in fact.

During the last week of February, Mars steps into the fray like a match thrown into a smoldering fire.  Until February 28th Mars will be poking the bear of the Uranus/Pluto […]
