A Glorious Virgo Full Moon 2/22/16

Astro Full Moon BrightVirgo Full Moon energy inclines us to take care of ourselves and our work. Ruled by clever Mercury, this responsible, hard working 6th sign of the Zodiac is about health, service, handling the details and getting things done. Just be careful not to do too many things at once. Juggling might be exciting and a personal test of skills, but don’t go overboard. Think “pace”.
A Full Moon phase is a great time to move towards finalizing whatever project or diet regimen you may have been planning. The universe will support you in being healthy and contributing.
The influences of a Full Lunar phase will last for several days even when the Astrology sign changes.

Pisces Sun – Sensitivity, Creativity, Feelings!

astrology_chartwheel 2On 2/18, West Coast, and 2/19, East Coast, the Sun’s energy enters this compassionate, intuitive, emotional Water sign making the next few weeks a good time for our imagination to shine. Piscean characteristics are heightened, meaning the subconscious is very important. It can be great for anyone associated with the arts – new ideas for music, dance, writing might push to the surface faster than usual. Pay attention to your dreams (take notes) but remember to stay grounded and connected. Over sensitivity to adverse energy or vibrations is no excuse to drift away from reality. Be productive, be creative and still be centered.

The 12th sign of the Zodiac’s planet ruler, mystical Neptune, transits the sign until 2025. We will probably notice the influences of this outer planet somewhere in our chart. Neptune has a reputation for clouding the water, fading boundaries, and fostering escapism, but, the things that make life unsettled can also enhance creativity and imagination. Use the best of it.

World peace has to start somewhere, so tap into the sympathy / empathy that Pisces is known for and spread kindness among family and friends. Use clear judgment while offering assistance where it is genuinely needed.

As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Ascendant in the specified sign.

Gung Hay Fat Choi – Chinese Lunar New Year, 2/8/16

2016 Chinese New Year Monkey

The Chinese New Year of the Monkey, on February 8th, is expected to bring energy, wit, innovation and a bit of impishness to 2016. Be prepared for a fast paced, unpredictable year. Cleverness abounds, but do be careful of false promises.

Risk vs Reckless. Stay grounded!

FYI: The Chinese Lunar New Year, unlike the “Sun” calendar, can begin on a different date each year, but mostly falls between 21 January and 20 February.
