FEBRUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 26

The astrological highlights this week include thinking Mercury making a move on Saturday and a New Moon Solar Eclipse on Sunday. That of course doesn’t mean we can ignore the rest of the week, which should prove interesting enough. Let’s just take it one day at a time.

When Mercury glides into the mystic waters of Pisces on Saturday afternoon it joins a party already in progress that includes the Sun, South Node of the Moon, Neptune (Pisces ruler), and Chiron. With this interesting combination of characters, it’s unclear whether this group is making a movie, delving into past lives, practicing alternative healing therapies, meditating, studying a spiritual discipline, drinking and drugging, communicating with animals, or holding a séance!

This is a sea of imagination, creativity, fantasy, and dreams. Writers and artists rejoice! This really is a boon for people in fields that require creativity and/or high levels of intuition and psychic ability. It’s also great for those working in areas associated with spirituality, metaphysics, medicine, and alternative healing. The famous mystic, Edgar Cayce, was born with four planets (including Mercury), and the North Node of the Moon in this sensitive last sign of the zodiac.

Mercury in Pisces can present quite the conundrum as Mercury is rational and communicative and Pisces is emotional, feeling, and more apt to communicate in non-verbal ways, including but not limited to touch, pictures, colors, patterns, and psychic impressions. During this month don’t be surprised if you find yourself or others drifting off during a conversation! Likewise pay attention to ideas or the thought of a friend or loved one who suddenly comes into your mind. They are probably thinking about you or sending you a message.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces early Sunday morning presents quite the juxtaposition of energy. The Sun and Moon come together in a Piscean sea filled with other planets, as mentioned above. We are awash with ideas, creative sparks, urges for healing, and the desire for transformations and new beginnings. This is metaphorically a fertile ocean and womb of possibility. Yet, will we have the motivation, energy, and inspiration to bring anything to fruition? Pisces is known for a lack of structure!

At the same time as the New Moon Eclipse is happening in the deep and sometimes unfathomable waters of Pisces, Mars the planet of action, in head-strong Aries, is energized by an animated merger with revolutionary Uranus. This on its own is a pretty significant astrological event that happens once every 2 ½ years on average. The image that comes to mind is being shot out of a cannon! The sunrise may seem to be somewhat delayed in parts of the world where the eclipse is visible, but even if it is unseen, its energy is one of being jolted awake!

Eclipses are known for bringing in new information and people into our lives. This one could be more impressive than most. The combination of fertile and creative Pisces energy along with Mars and Uranus in active Aries presents quite the dynamic array of possibilities.

With Venus retrograde looming large (starting next week), I suspect we are in for a revelation regarding ways we may be stifling or limiting our creativity, our abundance, and our ability to participate in reciprocal, unconditional, and satisfying love relationships. (Just a thought! More on this later.) I believe this Eclipse is going to start knocking some things loose. Don’t feel like you have to get up and go even though Mars connected to Uranus will make sitting still pretty difficult. If possible, allow all this energy to awaken and clarify your desires. You don’t need to take action; and yet, that won’t be far behind. With ignited inspiration and a clear direction there won’t be anything we can’t accomplish! I’m really thinking we will look back on this Eclipse as having been an important awakening and turning point in our lives.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

 

Magician Inspiration for the Week:

The competition is fierce and includes two Georges, Harrison and Washington. But the nod goes to Steve Jobs born on 2/24/1955. In addition to all three being born with Sun in Pisces, they also share Mercury, the planet of thinking and communication, in brilliant and unconventional Aquarius. Is it any wonder all three made history with their ability to think outside the proverbial box?

Steve Jobs, co-founder and eventual CEO of Apple, is associated with the ‘Think Different’ campaign along with a number of innovative and creative ideas and ventures. Note expansive Jupiter alongside revolutionary Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) in his natal Chart.

Notable mention goes to George Washington born February 22, 1732 and George Harrison born 2/24/1943.

Disclaimer: My intent is to provide accurate information about birth charts including times of birth. As you can guess, I make some mistakes! It 's also true that birth times are often based on someone 's memory or as in the case of Rosa Parks, the original source of the information is unknown. Allow this information and these charts to stimulate your thinking; but do your own homework to make it your own. When in doubt about a birth time, spend less time analyzing houses and more time thinking about planets in signs and in aspect to each other.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MOON in SAGITTARIUS / CAPRICORN

Moon Void of Course 3:37 pm (PST) – 11:08 pm

Even though we think of the Sagittarian Moon as being optimistic and adventurous, which is so true; it’s also the pressure to seek truth. As the Moon connects with thinking Mercury, radical Uranus, religious Jupiter, and disciplined Saturn today, I think we can expect some rather staunch opinions and feelings to be in evidence. We may be anxious to prove that what we believe is true, and likewise to convince others what we think is true is the only truth!

This can be a time when it’s hard to feel merciful or sympathetic with others who don’t see things the way we do. Tolerance may be in short supply and we may even get our feelings bent out of shape if others don’t respect our opinions. There is never a better time than the present to look more deeply at our own beliefs and ideas. Are we so sure we are right? Is there room for disagreement or alternate views?

When the thinking planet Mercury connects with revolutionary Uranus this evening, new information may just wake us up to some interesting and stimulating insights. This is a great combination for allowing in new ideas and solutions. Don’t be afraid to question your own ideas; and be slow to assume others are crazy or wrong for theirs. (Ok, maybe some of them are crazy and some of them are definitely wrong!)

Daily Muse: Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits. (Mark Twain)

 

TUESDAY
FEBRUARY 21
MOON in CAPRICORN

Moods are ambivalent today despite the Moon being in stable Capricorn. Mercury in forward thinking Aquarius connects with Jupiter in gracious Libra. It’s certainly easier than yesterday to connect with others of like-mind. It’s likely we are feeling more optimistic and upbeat. And yet there is a dark cloud lurking and threatening to diminish some of the sunshine. The Sun connects with the South Node of the Moon in sensitive Pisces. If we are not aware, we can easily fall into the trap of playing the victim, or the escape artist, too sensitive or powerless to deal with our feelings or life in general.

If we are upset or frustrated, we can choose to have a pity party or to take a calculated risk despite our fear. A sure bet for turning this energy around is calling on Pisces’ opposite sign, the goddess Virgo. Be of service to someone else and/or get creative with organization. Clean out a drawer, organize your shoes, run an errand for a neighbor, or clean out a garden bed. Just when you feel the most like emotionally closing down, you might realize helping someone else in need is just what you need to change your perspective and regain a positive attitude.

Daily Muse: Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse. (George Washington)

Today on Simpletales my guest is Psychic Channel and Medium Kay Dragon. One of the things we will be talking about today is how to take care of ourselves using the Medical Assistance Program (MAP) as described by Machaelle Small Wright, author of ‘Behaving as if the God in All Life Mattered.’ This is a way of working co-creatively with nature.

Please join us on 12Radio.com at 10 am Pacific – 1 Eastern.

WEDNESDAY
FEBRUARY 22
MOON in CAPRICORN

Moon Void of Course 7:24 pm (PST) – 9:17 am Thursday morning

The Cardinal signs Aries, Libra and Capricorn are duking it out today. These signs are known for being initiating, assertive, and action-oriented. Mars is over in Aries pushing for action, but against the advice of Pluto and the Moon, and without the support of Jupiter. If we could imagine their conversation, I can hear Mars advocating for independence and freedom and for moving ahead on something. Especially considering Mars is nearing the Uranus revolutionary zone!

Meanwhile Jupiter in Libra is suggesting we will get further if we consider our friends and allies and spend more time in networking and developing our relationships. Pluto in Capricorn doesn’t agree with either and is more interested in tearing up the old agreements and foundations and building something different. The Moon in Capricorn is feeling stoic and aligned with Pluto’s caution and encouraging us to put on the brakes as it squares Mars, Uranus, and Jupiter.

We may feel like we are caught in the crossfire, not knowing who to believe or which way to go. When Mars squares Pluto we often have a hard time pushing something through or taking appropriate action. This may be particularly true if you have a number of planets or your ascendant in one of the cardinal signs. Listen up if you are influenced by Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

This might also manifest as lots of conflicting information or ideas, what the media is dubbing as ‘alternate facts’. It’s easy to keep our cool and our bearings if we trust our inner guidance. This is also a day to stick to the familiar and the known. Be slow to trust others who pretend to be experts, if they have not proven themselves to be worthy. Likewise have a healthy suspicion of new information that seems startling or too outrageous to be true. It could turn out to be reliable, but only time will tell. Avoid getting caught up in a groundswell of emotion especially if your gut is leading you somewhere else.

Daily Muse: Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. (Steve Jobs)

THURSDAY
FEBRUARY 23
MOON in CAPRICORN / AQUARIUS

Moon enters Aquarius 9:17 am (PST)

Call me biased, after all I was born with an Aquarian Moon, but I’m feeling good about the changes in the emotional tone today as the Moon glides into Aquarius. The Moon also enters the very last phase of its cycle which often contributes to a feeling of ‘been there, done that.’ We leave behind some of the more turbulent and confusing energy of the last few days as Aquarius prefers the realm of the mind to the unpredictability of the heart. (That’s Aquarius speaking!) We generally feel more relaxed and are less willing to get caught up in emotional drama. This Moon may be somewhat stubborn, but it’s also philosophical and more tolerant, accepting that it’s not worth sweating what we can’t change. Instead we should focus on what is genuinely under our influence.

Mercury’s alignment with Saturn could lead us toward some solutions and breakthroughs. Where we felt stuck or stagnant, now we see a new strategy or passage through the impasse. Use your head instead of muscle to get ahead.

Daily Muse: I remember thinking I just want more. This isn't it. Fame is not the goal. Money is not the goal. To be able to know how to get peace of mind, how to be happy, is something you don't just stumble across. You've got to search for it. (George Harrison)

New on 12Academy – Astrology 511 – An Inside Look at the New Moon Solar Eclipse February 2017. All Eclipses can be harbingers of great change. This one is particularly interesting with the Sun and Moon joined by Mercury, Neptune, the South Node and Chiron all in Pisces. It’s going to be quite the party! In this class we will talk about the overall meanings of the Eclipse and registrants are encouraged to volunteer their charts for class discussion. Of course this is not required, but if you would like some insight into the eclipse in your own chart, register for the class and volunteer by e-mailing me through the 12Listen message system or at SimpleTales@comcast.net

This class is appropriate for students of all levels. Information will be broken down so both beginners and more advanced students can learn something valuable. All registrants are encouraged to participate, however attendance is not necessary. Registrants will receive a comprehensive handout and an audio recording of the class. Registrants will also be invited to participate in a private Astrology Discussion Group on Facebook open to 12Academy students only. Register here:

FRIDAY
FEBRUARY 24
MOON in AQUARIUS

Misunderstandings and even emotional estrangements can be sorted through today as the Moon in tolerant Aquarius makes helpful connections with both of the relationship planets Venus and Mars. Strive to be clear in your communications and resist the urge to participate in gossip or the spreading of rumors or unconfirmed information. This is a good day for clearing the air and connecting with others in a heart-felt way.

If you have been keeping your distance from a friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker based on a misunderstanding or even on information you believe, but don’t know to be true, today is a good day to check it out and find out the truth.

If you are feeling lonely or socially isolated, make a point of reaching out to like-minded people and/or re-establishing emotional connections.

Daily Muse: Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. (George Washington)

SATURDAY
FEBRUARY 25
MOON in AQUARIUS / PISCES

Moon Void of Course 10:11am (PST) – 4:24 pm
Mercury enters Pisces 3:08 pm (PST)

Moods and minds slide from the mental to the sentimental today as both the Moon and thinking Mercury glide into the mystic waters of Pisces. This is a sea of imagination, creativity, fantasy, and dreams. Writers and artists rejoice! This really is a boon for people in fields that require creativity and/or high levels of intuition and psychic ability. It’s also great for those working in areas associated with spirituality, metaphysics, medicine, and alternative healing. The famous mystic, Edgar Cayce, was born with four planets (including Mercury), and the North Node of the Moon in this sensitive last sign of the zodiac.

Mercury in Pisces can present quite the conundrum as Mercury is rational and communicative and Pisces is emotional, feeling, and more apt to communicate in non-verbal ways, including but not limited to touch, pictures, colors, patterns, and psychic impressions. During this month don’t be surprised if you find yourself or others drifting off during a conversation! Likewise pay attention to ideas or the thought of a friend or loved one who suddenly comes into your mind. They are probably thinking about you or sending you a message.

This is a great month for tackling creative projects as imagination flows. When it comes to love, that can be sweet too. However, Mercury in Pisces is maybe the least grounded of Mercury’s placements. We see what we want to see. Enjoy romance, which can be out of this world, but consider yourself ‘under the influence’, and plan accordingly.

This is the last day of the lunar cycle; and with the heavy emphasis of Pisces energy we may truly be in an alternate reality today. Things may not be nearly as bad or as wonderful as you think or imagine. That can be a good thing sometimes. Some people get sad or nostalgic at the end of the lunar cycle and under a Pisces Moon. If you are one, watch a good movie, read an interesting book or do something creative. Use this imaginative, forgiving, sensitive, and compassionate energy to re-write your life script.

Daily Muse: Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. (Steve Jobs)

MOON in PISCES

New Moon Solar Eclipse 8 Pisces 6:58 am (PST)

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces early this morning (6:58 Pacific time) presents quite the juxtaposition of energy. The Sun and Moon come together in a Piscean sea filled with other planets, including Mercury, the South Node of the Moon, Neptune, (Pisces ruler) and Chiron. We are awash with ideas, creative sparks, urges for healing, and the desire for transformations and new beginnings. This is metaphorically a fertile ocean and womb of possibility.

I’m really thinking we will look back on this Eclipse as having been an important turning point in our lives.

Daily Muse: For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. (Steve Jobs)

Out Of Mo's Mind
Mo

I love language. The perfection of the art of communication is amongst the highest and most noble of human aspirations. Picking the right word from our exquisitely specific language to drop into the exact spot, creating not only meaning, but fluidity and beauty is the aim of those whose entire world revolves around the spoken and written word. This is the perfection that Thoth, Hermes and Mercury bestowed upon us. I hope they’ve never watched the news.

I watch quite a bit of news, especially lately. I watch local news, national news, news pundits and even comedic takes on the news. It’s my own fault. I know that I have no one to blame but myself, but I'm beginning to go a little bit crazy at the ridiculous things I hear coming out of the mouths of newsreaders lately.

Sometimes you can see it coming. I call this, “the windup.” This is the moment when someone looking at a Teleprompter suddenly gets that “deer caught in the headlights look.” Their eyes get wider and there's a moment of hesitation before they launch into some sort of gobbledygook (a splendid word, if you ask me) that makes little or no sense. There’s no doubt that some of this is based upon the script they’re given, while some of it will be due to a slight slip of attention, a tying of the tongue, or the simple fact that words come up that confound the poor soul trying to read them.

When President Trump recently met with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, (pronounced ah-bay) one on-air reporter pronounced “Abe” as if he should be wearing a Stovepipe hat and getting ready to climb into the next buggy to Gettysburg. Participles dangle like piñatas, while making sense out of pronouns and verbs can be like trying to find the pea in a shell game. I won’t even get started on the mangled pronunciations of Middle Eastern names, a topic upon which I know a great deal.

I’m not trying to be critical here. After all, I have my own weekly radio show. For 55 minutes, I’m allowed to say anything I choose and I’d be willing to wager that I make cringe worthy grammatical errors, not to mention completely idiotic statements regularly. I get to babble, sometimes incoherently, about anything I please, without being chained to a Teleprompter, or sanity. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to be expected to read everything you say and do it correctly. Luckily, I have a solution.

We’re all human, so I think it’s best that we accept the fact that mistakes are made on the air. However, we don’t want our youth to become confused and think that the 16th president of the United States was Japanese. In order to prevent this from happening, a simple convention of unique words could be used to signal a goof up. Perhaps a couple of examples will serve to clarify this idea.

When a newsreader is coming to a particularly hard cluster of words to deal with, and that “caught in the headlights” look comes, all they’d have to do to release them of any further obligation to listeners would be to say the word, “Kabong.” This simple utterance will inform the audience that they are about to hear something that may cause confusion or be completely weird. A simple Kabong and youngsters won't think that the name of the former Prime Minister of Iran is, “Ma Ha Mud After Dinner Jacket.” (I heard this said once with my own ears.) A statement made recently by a local news person would have been less confounding with the addition of Kabong. She went into the warm up, eyes huge, expression tense and blurted out “Massive explosion to hash-oil of house end!” If she’d only said Kabong first, I’d have gotten more sleep that night.

What about the newscaster who realizes the error after the fact? I’ve got that covered. By adding the suffix, “eroo,” to Kabong, we’ll know to disregard the preceding statement. Kabongeroo.

There it is. Problem solved. Or, we could all try to be more precise with our communication skills, remembering that in times of great importance, as we live in now, there’s nothing more vital than being able to rely on the words and communications of others, as well as making sure that we’re being clearly understood. Words are power and should never be taken lightly or underestimated. In our beautiful language, Kabongeroo is certainly a solution, but it isn’t good enough. Conscious awareness is worth a thousand Kabongs, although perhaps not be as much fun.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Perspective: Growth and Divine Timing

We humans are an impatient bunch! I am saying this directly to myself. We live in a “need it now” world, and any kind of waiting seems to have become excruciating for many of us. This means that we often ram rod our desires down the throat of the Universe and expect immediate results. When the results don’t come immediately we tend to assume that our desires are not being heard, we don’t matter and don’t get what we want anyway, etc. Ok, I’m serious, we have to slow down a little and allow things to grow naturally.

At my spiritual center we have two Meyer Lemon trees. They sit in front of a large window and are actually growing real lemons. I have been watching the lemons all summer, very slowly turn from green to yellow. It has taken months for the lemons to ripen. For a long time they looked like limes and then a very small yellow spot started to form, slowly over a few weeks the sun facing side of the lemons turned yellow. We rotated the trees and the other side turned yellow as well. Up until this experience I was familiar only with lemons in the grocery store, already yellow and ready to eat. I have learned a lot about growth and divine timing watching the tiny lemons form in the center of blossoms, slowly grow to full size and slowly ripen in the sun. Recently we cut one open to taste it and Voila! It tasted like a real lemon, only better somehow. Giving it the time to fully ripen and mature in its own time gave a sweeter, fuller taste. Had I been foolish enough to cut into the green lemons I think I would have had a pretty unpleasant surprise.

I will be the first to admit that I have forced the issue, pushed through all the road blocks and ate the green lemon many times in my life. I have been impatient and refused to wait for growth to occur naturally, distrusting divine timing. And every time I think, I am never doing that again. And yet, sometimes I do. I think we all do. Other times I feel so connected to the divine flow, trusting and willing to let it all play out as it is meant to. So, what’s the difference? What drives the fear and distrust? It is different for each of us, but spending some time exploring that for yourself is very important. Let’s talk!

I will continue this discussion on my radio show, Kindred Spirits, on 12radio.com on Monday, 2/20/2017 at 10 am PST.

Many blessings,

Kristi

The Cult of Love : Welcome to Pisces
James Ray

If you haven't noticed, the world is going through a bit of a mess. There is a reorganization of power happening. Spearheaded by women, and inspired by injustice worldwide, we are coming into our own. The once underground and secretive developments are rising to the surface. Once these ugly parts of reality are out in the open, we are given the opportunity to choose between love and fear. One is not better than the other, it is merely a personal choice.

Many people will choose to stay in fear, in the dark, in anger and victim mentality. These people will do what any movement would do. They will gather in groups, they will form an agenda, they will attack those who attack them, and they will defend their ideology. The cult of fear will look to recruit you, just as an Evangelical Christian will want to sell you on the salvation you can find in Christ. Those in the cult of fear will do the same, by explaining that their way of being “just makes sense". These individuals are no more “diabolical" than a telemarketer, simply doing what they feel that they need to do to survive and have meaning in their lives. Using what is at their disposal, they will spread their philosophy and build their realities around it.

Some people are part of a sports cult or a nationalistic cult. Many Americans wave their flags and hold tight to the ideal that America is the greatest place on Earth. I am not one to argue with this, as it is their opinion and personal choice. What I would say, is that the world is a very large place, and I would imagine that these American Nationalists probably don’t know jack about the majority of the world, but I digress. A member of a sports cult will tell you how their team is destined for glory, or how their glory was thwarted by a tipped ball or a bad call. These “fans" will defend their “team" at all costs and ride emotional roller coasters in the hopes of being in the winner’s circle at the end of the day. The tie that binds is the blind allegiance to a movement or a certain sect. With this devotional energy given to the team, religion, nation, or individual, we have given our power away to the deity, guru, emotion, substance.

A disempowered individual, whether by force or by choice, is a dangerous being for sure. When we seek to find our power and direction outside of us, we are ripe for manipulation. Under the guise of mob mentality, heinous acts are now justified under the terms and conditions of your specific cult.

Cults are not always a bad thing, and many movements on the planet right now do amazing things for the people, animals, and natural resources of this planet. This, my friends, is why I write to you today. Which group do you choose?

Are you part of the cult of fear? Do you allow the television, the media, and the government to tell you what to think? Even if you don’t allow them to tell you how to act or look, if they tell you what to think and what to believe, then they already have you. What is your response when you see trauma or tragedy? What is your response when you see racism, sexism, homophobia, and hate crimes? Do you look the other way? Do you grab your smartphone to video? Do you join in and take the easy way out, believing that others are to blame for the state of your country,

your less than ideal career, your emotions, your financial standing? Or do you see yourself in that person, as opposed to projecting your insecurities onto them?

The cult of love stands tall. Love, unlike fear, does not require anything to be whole. The cult of love does not require validation from the outside world. We, as a group and a movement, choose to interconnect, to share resources, to eschew the drama, to make this planet a safer and more loving place for all people. Our movement cannot be squashed by bad news, hate crimes, sociopathic leaders, or even the hardships and heartbreaks of everyday life. As a member of the cult of love, we know to love ourselves first. For it is by our own dutiful self care that we may share our infinite gifts with the world.

As the sun moves into Pisces, remember that the mutable water signs seeks to fill the gaps that separate us. Effortlessly Pisces energy moves in all directions, in all spaces, at all times. Neptune, the ruling planet of Pisces, has the effect of blurring and dissolving all boundaries, including the false belief that we are SEPARATE from others.

As we begin to come together within our individual movements, do not expect another to be able to lead you. It will be the strength of your focus and your dedication to your intention that will decide what you manifest in this world. During this thirty days, remember to check in with self regularly. Take pause from the chaos of existence to recenter, refresh, and align with your highest calling. Remember that fighting an opposing cause will only fan the flames of fear, if you want to stop of fire, starve it of attention.

“Great mystery, walk with me, within me. I desire to see the most positive outcome for the whole of humanity. May we as individuals align with our soul’s purpose, so that we may come together as integrated beings of light. With our hearts, minds, and intentions united, we can and will overcome all challenges we face as a species. May my actions be create lasting change in alignment with my loving heart’s desires. May all beings be at peace, in all places, at all times."
