Dark Moon 8 Feb 2016 (Chinese New Year : Fire Monkey)

**SkyView Astrology** Dark Moon 8 Feb 2016

Roles might be reversed and the impossible possible.

Chinese New Year : Fire Monkey

By Katharina Bless



This Dark Moon in Capricorn has some beautiful gifts with the sextile and trines. It is a moment of clarity and receiving. A lot of illusions had to be faced during the descending moon phase and the weather in many part of the world was the perfect mirror!


Here in Thailand we had temperatures (in the north) like 8°C/52°F during the day and we sat wrapped in blankets during most of the workshop I was teaching. Since we have no heaters here it was really difficult, but still, all went well and it was amazing how every body coped with it. Then on Thursday we had some sun in the afternoon to visit the flower exhibition and on Friday it was just perfect to make the flower essences!

Because of the extraordinary circumstances the workshop triggered a lot more than many others. We have been “stretched” far beyond our comfort zone and boundaries.


This chart brings the award for those who have done their homework! This Chinese New Year brings a fresh energy, a fresh start for those who can let go and move on. The alignment of the planets is very powerful and shows the shift of energies.

Many new opportunities will open up and this dark moon is a perfect energy for using your creativity and draw in details what you want. It is a great time to plant some seeds. Sun and Moon in the last earth sign Capricorn are helping to deepen our experience on all levels. Taurus is the sign where life is manifesting, abundance shooting to be harvest in Virgo, Capricorn is the death of the visible, the seed that dies in the soil to become the plant; the physical that withdraws into the “other side” to be reborn refreshed for a new life cycle.


If we look at the Dark Moon from this perspective we can now prepare and put the seeds into the fertile soil so they can shoot when the time is ready. Many flowers and plants are most beautiful, like e.g. tulips, if the bulb is put into the ground just before the winter starts. In this chart we find a similar energy. Since Jupiter is still retrograde, the seeds will not sprout immediately, it will take some time until the plant will be visible!


Jupiter is in conjunction with the North Node and Chiron is in opposition with the South Node, indicating that some deep healing is happening in the world. Seep stirring on all levels and many things, which still could hide, are not pulled into the open. Not only old wounds are coming on the surface to be healed, also old wisdom will deepen the global consciousness! There are shifts happening that will bring big changes in the month to come.


Chiron is in Aquarius, stirring up the sediments of the old paradigm and shake every one in different ways, depending how they prepared for this time. The sextile to the Venus/Mercury Pluto conjunction, which is connected with a trine to Jupiter is the key for this constellation. I did elaborate in my last reading on this topic already ~ please have a look.



This conjunction is a very important step into freedom. Sagittarius energy is indicating break trough’s and insights which connects us to a higher spiritual goal, to the divine Self which is far beyond all religious doctrines and human restrictions. The divine within us all is far more powerful than the sum of all control and once we are connected to this core-star energy again, our lives unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun!


Every thing is indicating that we are in a period of death and rebirth. Each individual is on a rung on this ladder, and it’s a different experience for each and every one. The experience depends on many things, first of all on the consciousness level of the person and how they are prepared and willing to move on. Those who try to hold onto the old, they will have a much harder time because then they have to be dragged or kicked into the process.


If you are ready and sit with this topic, make it clear with the according intention, you will be propelled forward into the new that is awaiting. Opportunities are coming into your life, you don’t even need to search for them. The gift of the trines will be fully activated for those open to receive.


Mars in Libra with his trine to Chiron is the balancing act in the process, the male energy in the female sign, connected with a sextile to Venus in the male sign of Sagittarius, the roles might be reversed and the impossible possible. Those who have been active, might step back and wait, just let go and be open to receive. Those who have been passive might step up and become active to make things happen. Forces are being balanced!


Capricorn also helps us to see the structure of things. This will help us to understand better what is going on, there is no camouflage and mask anymore and the naked truth might be shocking in some moments, but it also is a big relief to see it finally and not being “played” anymore by others. Now we can take the reigns in our own hands and move into the direction that the heart desires.


Jupiter, still retrograde in Leo, is helping us to understand the personality better, why we need an ego to function here in the 3D realm and what is beyond it. We can move out of the identification with the different masks and costumes we wear and be conscious about the games we are involved in. We still need a personality to be able to exist here, and we also have a gender as long as we are in a physical body. But in the next higher dimension, the realms invisible for the human eye, but “visible” for the heart, we can start to balance the male and female within to reach the state of hermaphrodite!


Once we have achieved the balance we can be here to experience the transformation consciously! In a state of higher consciousness we are able to help to shift the hologram because we have shifted and what we heal in ourselves we also heal in the whole: Microcosm = Macrocosm or As Above so Below!


Looking from this perspective at the Chinese New Year, we have even here in SkyView Astrology a great confirmation that this year will be a year of completions and great achievements. Projects that have been postponed for long, finally take off. For those who had to wait for a long time to eventually move into their power, let me say: your time has come! Don’t waste a minute and claim what is yours!

If you are interested to book a private reading, or learn this method of SkyView Astrology, please contact Katharina directly by email.



**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:

Aries: 25°  April 18, Taurus: 36° – May 13, Gemini: 28° – June 21 Cancer: 20° –  July 20, Leo: 36° – Aug 10, Virgo: 44° – Sept 16,  Libra: 23°  Oct 30, ,  Scorpio: 25° – Nov 23,  Sagittarius: 33° – Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° – Jan 20,  Aquarius: 25° – Feb 16, Pisces: 37° – March 11

The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
