We’ve entered an Age where people are becoming more and more aware of the energies that can influence their daily lives. These energies reside both within us and externally in the outside world.
What resides within is influenced by what happens in that outside world to create our response to both people and situations. What resides within is a composite of how we were raised, what we were taught, but also how the energy flows through our bodies and the energies we were born with. This is where astrology comes into play.
I’ve talked often about how important it is to understand the energies that were in place when each of us was born, but it’s more than that. It’s about how those core energies, in conjunction with our programming (how we were raised and what we were taught), are influenced by the current planetary energies, thus creating our response to other people and situations that arise in our daily lives.
Some will say, “Oh, pooh!” Believing the energy of planets have no effect on them. All you have to do is watch how different people are affected by a Full Moon to know that, in fact, the opposite is true. The same holds true for all the planets, and some asteroids, according to astrologers.
So how does one make the most of this information in their lives? Awareness and observation have a lot to do with it. For example, I was having digestive attacks for about a year and a half. It didn’t happen all the time, but I started noticing a pattern. Every time the Moon entered Virgo, there was a good chance another attack would happen. Virgo not only is the natural ruler of the 6th house of health, but it also rules the digestive system. This was really confirmed for me when the Sun entered Virgo and I had multiple attacks that were severe in nature. I’ve since taken care of the cause of the attacks, but the point is that being observant and aware of the movement of the planets helped me to understand what was making this illness worse.
I focus a lot on the Moon when I do my tweets on Twitter. Some may wonder why that is. It’s pretty simple. The Moon has a definite effect on our emotions because of its rulership of them. To know how each phase and sign of the Moon is affecting you on a daily basis can be of great help in understanding your emotions and your emotional response to people and situations. If you just become aware of that much, you can greatly improve the circumstances of your life. Then you know what you need to do to remain centered and not let people and situations throw you off balance. This is empowerment and we all deserve to be empowered every day and in every way.
Speaking of Full Moons, we have a Full Moon that’s a supermoon happening on Tuesday, February 19th at 10:54 a.m. EST. Being a supermoon means it will be closer to the Earth in its orbit, thus having a stronger affect on us, energetically.
The Moon will be in Virgo while the Sun will be the opposite sign of Pisces. This combination will make the intuition very active and will also create inspiration in some people. The energies created also include prudence, steadiness, and common sense. There may be a few who are affected in such a way as to cause self-distrust, reserve, and even coldness.
The Moon in Virgo, by itself, can make some affected by its energies very conscious of keeping fit and thus cause them to begin exercise, yoga, and dieting. The trick is to not go to extremes in order to create and maintain good health.
Moon in Virgo is also about the health of our intellect so it’s a good time for intellectual pursuits. The analysis of what is read and other people’s opinions is good mental exercise. The trick with Virgo energy is to not become too critical. Here again, finding a balance is what leads to good health.
Virgo energy also provides stability to business and that analytic ability provides a good business sense. There’s even a benefit for those who are in the field of clairvoyance or any other intuitive faculty.
With this super Full Moon, the best advice is not to allow yourself to get preoccupied with inconsequential details nor become overly critical of yourself or others. Either can cause us to become blind to larger issues.
Venus moves into Aquarius on March 1st at 11:45 a.m. EST bringing the possibility of sudden and casual relationships taking place, but not lasting. Those affected by this energy will require variety, mental stimulation, and social freedom. It will be difficult to settle down with one person.
This energy makes for excellent parenting. Children are treated fairly and helped to develop their best traits.
For the artist, the grasp of human nature can become great and allow them to capture a subject’s essence because of it. Music is especially affected by this energy. Many will find they express themselves best through this medium.
There will be those who are affected adversely. It could cause them to become eccentric and promiscuous in their sexual habits. Love affairs could happen with just anyone and there could be many such affairs. The emotional outlook could be subject to radical, sudden changes that cause them to break relationships and/or create new ones.
Others may find that their love is being channeled outward to a love of humanity. There may be a desire to understand human nature better.
No matter how you look at it, love with Venus in Aquarius will be interesting and definitely out-of-the-ordinary.
Mercury in Pisces will go retrograde on March 5th @ 1:19 p.m. EST and will remain that way until March 28th at 9:59 p.m. EST.
While Mercury in Pisces, moving forward, provides excellent concentration and psychic ability, when it goes retrograde, some may experience confusion in the conscious mind. The feeling of being lost or having forgotten something that you can’t quite put your finger on can happen.
Some may find there is a feeling of desperation to their thoughts. There can also be trouble separating mental energies from the intuition. Some may become lost in imagination, thoughts, and fantasies, losing contact with reality even if just for short periods of time.
All this may be pointing to past life residue. What this can do is cause those affected by these energies to keep recreating the same kind of circumstances and events that will allow the repetition of the same actions and desperation that was experienced in that past life. Awareness of ones actions and the real question you are asking yourself can provide the answers you’re truly searching for.
This retrograde provides a real opportunity to explore and discover what makes us tick mentally, emotionally, and psychically.
