Friday February 15, 2019

The challenge of balancing our own needs with those of others becomes more apparent under today's Cancer Moon. There are heightened sensitivities in this atmosphere and we continue to need reassurance. However, making those needs clear is especially challenging. While we desperately want approval, our apparent persistence — even stubbornness — in the face of questions or challenges, may create a mixed message"Do you want my help or not?!". The strong and trustworthy intuition of the past few days may begin to wane as we deal with deep and sensitive emotions. Despite the sensitivities, our determination is strong and our perseverance unwavering — creating an atmosphere fraught with the potential for strong but unspoken emotional insecurity.



Weekly Summary

FEBRUARY 10 - FEBRUARY 16

"O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love."
— The Prayer of St. Francis

This week is dominated by the forming Mars-Uranus conjunction. Energy and independence build through the middle of the week. Mercury moves into Pisces at the beginning of the week offering exciting flashes of intuitive insight. By the end of the week, Mars will have moved from action-oriented Aries into doggedly determined Taurus. However, before Mars arrives in Taurus (on Valentine's Day), it makes an explosive and unpredictable conjunction with Uranus. Changes accelerate — albeit briefly — at an astounding rate. Once the Mars-Uranus energy detonates a major round of changes, Mars settles down to a persistent, determined, but steady pace. Creativity surfaces but so does some subtle sensitivity. We begin to turn our focus toward concern over approval and a deep-seated need to protect our egos. If we look ahead to next week's Full Moon (February 19th 7:53 AM PST 0° Virgo/Pisces), we can gain some clues about how to handle the sensitivity that surfaces. The more that we can focus our attention towards care and concern for others, the easier it will be to lessen our own emotional sensitivity. However, this can become a two-edge sword. We don't want to go so far that we allow ourselves to fall into the trap of becoming a slave to others. We are turning a blind corner this week, from a powerfully independent and energetic environment, into an environment where creativity and determination are becoming more orderly. The Full Moon will help us to incorporate compassion and service into our approach, slowly setting aside the intense focus on ego-centered independent action.

Energy and intuitive insight is particularly exhilarating on Sunday. However, the unpredictable atmosphere could leave us rather confused or perplexed. Patience and compromise are difficult to manifest. Even though we may try to 'hit the brakes' on Monday, things aren't inclined to slow down much. Tuesday's steady progress during the early part of the day slows in the afternoon and many are prone to pushing too hard to keep things moving. Energy peaks on Wednesday and we are likely to find clear insight and decisiveness. Creativity begins to draw our attention on Thursday but we are also increasingly sensitive. Ego concerns drain our intuition. We may be overly concerned about making just the right appearance. Sensitivity increases even more on Friday but our desire for approval and reassurance is difficult to articulate. By Saturday, we may be inclined to make a strategic retreat which at least has the effect of muting any defensiveness. By placing our focus on compassion and caring for others, our sensitivity will be eased.

Saturday February 16, 2019

Some kind of strategic retreat seems most likely today although the atmosphere is quite socially oriented. Defensiveness is possible but muted. The past few days of emotional sensitivity finds some welcome protection — even if if the protection is only found by isolation or withdrawal. The tension and energy levels from the beginning of the week have definitely been reduced and there is an increasing willingness to offer care and concern for others. However, we shouldn't collapse into a sense of duty that results in becoming a slave to the wishes of others in the process of offering our service or trying to keep the peace. Next Tuesday's Full Moon (7:53 AM 0° Virgo/Pisces) will teach us more about service, caring and compassion. We may feel more cynical detachment than genuine concern today but the seeds of true compassion are being planted.

Sunday February 17, 2019

It is particularly easy to get stuck today, pursuing questionable goals with single-minded, stubborn determination. As we approach Tuesday morning's Full Moon (7:53 AM PST 0° Virgo/Pisces), we will do better to stay aware that there will be further twists and turns — there aren't many sure bets in this environment. Making plans here may not be so easy but we'll be better off to identify and resolve any potential obstacles we find in our path, rather than get too far out ahead of ourselves. Our instincts may be telling us to take the risk — 'go all in before the flop' — in a misguided demonstration of confidence. However, the bluff is more than likely to go sideways. We're better off not trying to prove anything to anyone and keep our powder dry.



Weekly Summary

FEBRUARY 17 - FEBRUARY 23

"Change was impossible to predict...A small event or, more frequently, nothing happened at all, nothing that I could notice much less grasp and — suddenly it all changed! The familiar faces looked and acted differently."
— Wole Soyinka

This week's shifts are striking and sudden. Some may feel that there has been a breakthrough, while others might see only chaos and collapse. Tuesday's Virgo Full Moon (7:53 AM PST 0° Virgo/Pisces) is another in a series of cusp Full Moons. We suddenly realize we need a whole new set of tools in order to continue to make progress. The Sun moves from innovative Aquarius into intuitive Pisces. Chiron also changes signs this week, leaving Pisces for pioneering Aries. However, what Chiron really does in Aries is increase our awareness that we are confronting a wilderness of unexplored possibilities. Again, some will respond differently that others; Some draw inspiration from a brand new set of possibilities, while others will shrink away from the uncertainty of the unknown. Also this week, Mercury enters retrograde territory and conjuncts Neptune. The retrograde period will begin on March 5th and complete on March 27th when Mercury will return to conjunct Neptune again. The Mercury-Neptune conjunction, and Mercury's transit through Pisces generally, is certainly inspirational and intuitive. Imagination is enhanced but our tether to reality can quickly dissolve, leaving us lost or battling shadows. Our sense of direction may be quite fuzzy and we may also be especially vulnerable to misleading or duplicitous people and schemes. We may garner some helpful wisdom from this week's Mercury-Venus and Mercury-Pluto sextiles from Pisces to Capricorn, which offers wisdom along with willingness to compromise and work cooperatively. However, there are challenges to our ability to understand and catalogue the wisdom and information we find, which is also rather fuzzy. While the broad strokes may seem appealing, putting our understanding and inspiration into productive pursuits and articulate communication is likely to be hampered by the distinct lack of clarity.

Independence and determination are strong on Sunday but it's easy to get stuck pursuing questionable goals, favoring persistence over thoughtfulness. Mercury conjuncts Neptune on Monday, bringing flashes of insight but not, perhaps, the full picture. Nonetheless, inspiration may be intoxicating. There is a striking shift under Tuesday morning's Full Moon. Some will see breakthroughs and inspiration, feeling few concerns over details. Others may be more aware of the collapse of stability in a chaotic and confusing series of twists. Clarity is especially hard to find on Wednesday. Congeniality and good intentions may not be enough to restore the desired sense of balance and stability on Thursday. Stress may cause patience to wear thin on Friday. By Saturday, our focus begins to shift towards seeking a deeper awareness and understanding of the underlying context of the situations where we find ourselves. We are more interested in archeology and deeper understanding of the past, rather than pursuing groundbreaking new ideas.
