Full Moon, Valentine Day, Feb 14, 2014
Preparing, digging and being alert!
The chart shows a retrograde Mercury and Jupiter and a few very massive karmic aspects. In addition, we have in the real star constellations a opposition from the sun on the last degree of Capricorn to the moon in Leo. Definitely an interesting chart! The ego perception is limited and forced to look at the things that are not yet completely in balance in our lives. It is a great and seldom opportunity to see one’s life from a completely out of norm perspective!
Mercury is retrograde until March 1st. This gives me the great opportunity to pack and get ready to move. The houses are finished by end of the month and in the moment it’s more or less about fixing things that have not been done right…. and it’s a lot! The carpenter is making my kitchen and the first time since close to 20 years, I will have a really beautiful kitchen again! I look so much forward to prepare my food again myself.
When I read Solara’s surf report for February I was first a bit disappointed that she stated that the “take off” had to wait until March, but also in the chart you can see this very clearly. Therefore we better don’t hurry with things, there might be opportunities coming up and then we have to act fast to not loose them, but we also can wait and do what we have to do in a very conscious way and simply be ready for the new chances and changes that are coming.
Things seem “muddy and sticky” in the moment, and if we consider that the Sun, within the next two weeks until dark moon, also will conjunct Neptune we maybe better hold off with important decisions. The road is not clear yet to hit the accelerator. When finally the dark moon comes with a close conjunction with Chiron., we can expect great healing and this is the time of preparation for it.
A lot of unresolved issues will jump again into our faces, issues with loved ones might come up right for Valentine day. It is mainly about control issues. What I realize here, is that most people have the illusion that they have (more or less) control over their lives, at least over the people, families and situations closely related to the community. This time might be the two weeks of disillusion, because many might realize that the life they live now is not exactly as they want it to be. First they might keep quiet, since the Capricorn Sun is more about looking at things and not so much expressing them ~ this also is indicated by the retrograde Mercury. But issues surface, they have to be looked at! Mars will bring the harvest into visibility and the trine to the Sun/Mercury conjunction with the 3 karmic aspects won’t allow us to ignore them.
The triangle that stands out the most is Sun/Mercury to retrograde Jupiter and the Moon; and connected to this one, a similar karmic triangle from Jupiter/Moon to Venus/Pluto. It indicates that the human evolution of the individual can’t move any further if we don’t examine our relationships. The way most people live their lives in a strong isolation, communicating through devises but not really to a living being in front of them, does not bring understanding and the chance to get to know each other.
The illusions of how people should be if we communicate in this way inevitably degenerates into disappointment. We don’t really know who this other person is, with the help of “avatars” they create a virtual personality they identify with on line, but their real life, the touch with life on earth as a 3D human being and the connection with other beings is a total different story.
In Thailand they call upon young people to spend the day of Valentine in the temple because they are afraid that a lot of young girls are pregnant over these days. They estimate that there are 10 abortions by youth between age 14-18 per day. This is another indication on how sick our education system is, and this not only here but world wide. The young kids are educated with more emphasis is on the pure rational development and the emotional needs of the them are simply ignored. Of course, it would be easy to control every body, if we are just functioning on reason and the emotional needs can be satisfied with “sugar and sex”.
Even if there is a pledge for better sexual education, this is not the solution to the problem! The whole system of education has to be changed so young people can be prepared for a life as an adult. The general tendency to always find the fault of anything in the outside and not be responsible for one’s personal life is another indication of the sick expectation what life is about. Of course we also need the outer circumstances that something is happening, but did you know, that we create them ourselves with our attitude? We create life with our expectations, fears and if people don’t learn again to be responsible for their lives, and just blame every body else, how can changes ever happen?
This is the time of reflection. Of decluttering our lives and organize our virtual world so that we also have time to live in the real world. I am not saying that the modern technology is bad, but often it’s badly used and eats totally up people’s life.
Saturn indicates that it’s a time of balance and even if we might resist (as the squares to sun/moon show) it is the time quality that we have to face now if we want to achieve something better and more in harmony with our original path of life.
This coming two weeks with the sun transit over Neptune will give us an opportunity to look deeper, to dig into hidden potential and prepare for a powerful healing. It is a good time to meditate and clear out things that don’t belong to our lives anymore. Maybe you go through your closets and fill the bags for giving things away, someone might be glad to receive old cloth and other things that you don’t use anymore.
The trines give us a hint about the healing process with Jupiter/Chiron and Mars/Sun/Mercury involved. Often we think that we got rid of old stuff and behavior patterns, but how fast are they back on the surface and we didn’t really clear them out, only hide them a bit better maybe.
It is possible that our life can change, and the only way how this is going to happen is if the change starts with us and not through blaming others or trying to change the world around us.
This topic has come over and over again in the last couple years, it’s like peeling the onion, layer after layer the things we need to see are coming to the surface. It’s not that we have to clear things only from one life time, it’s much more. We are here to finish unfinished business in many aspects, as an individual and also for the whole!
If I change that part of the hologram which is me, the whole hologram changes! That’s how it works. I clean out my stuff and what ever I don’t need anymore is free again to circulate. Even on the money level I come to rock bottom. During the construction phase of the new center I didn’t teach any workshops and hence hardly earned any money. Even my mother, who had a pension from which we could live, said her ‘good bye’ for good last year to leave me with another experience and to create a different life. I think it’s all about to let go of the fear, knowing that every thing will fall into place when we follow or passion and intuition and, as experienced so many times, there is always a door opening when you least expect it!
Quantum physics shows that we create our world and now it is time to understand how! If you are new to this topic, I would recommend you to watch the movie: “What the bleep do we know”, this is a great introduction to understand that we create our world and nobody else.
Let’s be curious what March brings, this is the time when the energy of the Chinese Year of the Horse is kicking in! Now, the horses are still grazing on the pasture to prepare comfortably for the coming gallop into the “take off energy” with many break trough’s. So lets also use this coming two weeks to be ready and free for the journey and the “take off”.
To stand still for a while is not weakness, in the contrary, from time to time (and the any cycle is a good rhythm) we need to hold still for a while to prepare for new adventures. In this time we also select what we want to put in the suitcase, maybe we also have to buy new things and prepare for other conditions, if we hold still for a moment we’ll know what we have take along! And don’t forget to get rid of the old luggage.
**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the dates when the sun enters the signs:
