Feb 2017 Astro Update…

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (1)

Well folks I said we were in for a crazy ride in 2017 and so far the wildcard unexpected events have totally lived up to expectations!! I  also said that things would go off with a bang on the New Moon in Aqua on 28th as Mars also entered Aries…we sure have entered an unprecedented era in modern history now haven’t we?

So let’s have a look at what’s next in the unfolding reality drama as February brings us

  • Sun in Aqua & Mercury into Aqua
  • Venus into Aries to join Mars
  • Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Feb 11th
  • Sun into Pisces Feb 19th
  • New Moon Solar Eclipse Feb 27th

It’s a great time to book in for your 2017 year ahead chart

Well kids welcome to a brand new phase in global affairs! The Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries forces have unleashed the radical shifts they are notorious for, and many people are reeling at the speed & impact of events over the recent weeks.

I am so aware of consciously holding my center as I observe the many views and opinions and reactions that I am witnessing. The polarization of the Jupiter/Uranus story are front and center right now, so the question becomes how do we manage this stuff and personally find the positive and truly exciting opportunities also on offer in this amazing astroscape?

Ok we’re now in Aquarius time as our Sun moves through the constellation of the Water Carrier.

  • This is the 11th stage in our natural year where we invite the innovative  ideas & solutions we’re going to need to activate our lives in 2017
  • …so we can initialize our activities when Sun enters Aries
  • …and in between gestate and nurture these ideas in Pisces time…got it!

OK let’s unpack this…as they say these days. So right now our focus needs to be on this Aquarian ideas thing as we also say yes to change even if it makes us a little uncomfortable. For many this change urge is massive hence the chaotic unpredictable features ‘out there’, so yes we all need to re-invent ourselves over the next 10 months and take some risks to do this. And we have great support from Saturn in this process to affect expansion & change with practical & steady progress…don’t forget this!

Remember that woven into our current social fabric is fear and uncertainty! Indeed this is the essence of the old 3D Reality program, and right now these carefully orchestrated events are amplifying this to peak expression!! I see this as a time bringing things to a crescendo – like an ultimate opportunity to really get this  limiting old ‘control tape’. So what happens if we’re not frightened? Liberation. This is the true essence of Aquarius my friends, where we are free to tap into unlimited Mind and become a conduit for fab and rad new solutions that will fuel the true renaissance unfolding in these chaotic times.

Aquarius offers us the highest point of the humanitarian, collective, we are all one, principle.  So it’s not surprising that the immigration/refugee issues are front and center, albeit still being woefully misunderstood, or responsibility taken for why we live in a bounteous world where so many have so little, and suffer from the actions of war makers.

Aquarius rules politics and global systems and we expect a lot of our politicians. They are meant to have ready answers to the very problems they have created. I’ve been very open over the years in sharing the belief that there is a rather nefarious global elite group who set policy behind the scenes and then use political and media and banking systems toward an end goal of ‘global domination’.  So right now I encourage you all to keep a very open mind and objective position as we watch this latest installment of the chess game.

It’s been obvious for decades now that no matter how gracious and charming or rude and belligerent a leader may be they are all serving either themselves or their masters…or both. This is why Aquarius also takes us beyond politics and into community.  ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world.’ said Mahatma Gandhi as he midwifed the birth of his country during times of massive change and conflict.

It is through our personal commitment to giving birth to healthy community social enterprise that we can bypass the political and financial crap they have created! On that note here are Gandhi’s 10 rules for Changing the World: VERY COOL bless him!

  1. Change yourself. “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
  2. You are in control. “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
  3. Forgive and let it go. “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” “An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
  4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere. “An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
  5. Take care of this moment. “I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”
  6. Everyone is human. “I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”
  7. Persist. “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
  8. See the good in people and help them. “I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.” “Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.” “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”
  9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” “Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
  10. Continue to grow and evolve. ”Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.”

As peacemaker Venus joins Mars in Aries on Feb 4th we get to choose to create inner & outer HARMONY in the midst of fear and conflict!! She is at her best here when our confidence ‘attracts’ others for mutual growth…remember ‘we get more bees with honey’!

And with Mars still firing up all sorts of aggressive stuff it’s SO IMPORTANT not to buy into personal and global dramas my friends, as in such polarized times arguing the point is a no win situation and just keeps perpetrating the collective conflicted tensions…but we’re not doing that are we???!!! Keep your focus and don’t get distracted by all the shite!!

Messenger Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on Feb 7th…hoorah!! OMGoddess I am so over Mercury and his very long haul through Capricorn since early December…yes he did his retrograde here and it’s been a tad tiresome…albeit productive.SO now the Messenger God is free to be as clever and inventive as he likes after all that worry and serious stuff! I love Mercury in Aqua as our minds can free range into all manner of out of the box connections and inventive stuff. He’s here until late Feb when he then glides into Pisces.

OK so now we need to have a look at the February Eclipses – the first of which is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Feb 11th (Fri or Sat depending on your zone). So the Sun in Aqua opposes the Moon in Leo @ 22 degrees. This is first of the Leo/Aqua eclipses over the next 18 months with echoes back to 1998/9…the previous 19 year cycle. This brings us major political (Aqua) and leadership (Leo) scenarios & with Jupiter in Libra + Saturn in Sagittarius + Uranus in Aries in strong connection with the eclipse, we can expect more unpredictable bits playing out in the 2017 drama (don’t forget you can mute the control on your TV & Media exposure!)

Especially when we look back on previous cycles in 1998/9 – 1979/80 – 1961/2 – 1952/3 – 1943/4 & 1934/5. I love my job! It’s always such fun when I do my research and find these amazing correlations. In each case we’ve had major economic/political dramas & the arising of new phases. The 1934/5 eclipses connects with the last time Jupiter/Libra opposed Uranus/Aries. Bells & whistles?

BTW this Lunar Eclipse is all over Mr Trump as his SUN plus Uranus in Gemini & MOON opposite in Sag are lit up exactly! OMG this is the ultimate stage he’s been aspiring for all his life!! We don’t know if he’s going to crash & burn over the next 10 months…whether he is the stooge being set up by the Elite when they decide to create the next GFC & it will be his fault…whether he’s brought in the Goldman Sachs swamp people because he owes them so much money…whether he is going for the ultimate prize of complete control in his own right…or whether he really has the best interests of us all in his heart & he’s going to break the Global Elite system. FASCINATING!

Please don’t forget that everyone has their own opinion here, hence the furious controversy game being waged by the media. So it’s very cool not to buy in to the drama! Our job in 2017 is to hold the space of PEACE and CO-OPERATION inspired by knowing that we are simply passing through the ‘eye of the needle’ between the past & the future!  We are in such a similar time as the French & American Revolutions when people also said no to immoral & exploitive practices.  Kings lost their heads then and nations were born. No doubt about it we are living in interesting times!

So how do we use this personally I hear you ask? OK so eclipses are portals that energetically align SUN MOON EARTH to upgrade the Matrix to create new levels of consciousness. This one is cool as it stimulates our urge for change and innovation (Uranus)  but we also know it’s cool to do this carefully (Saturn). It also offers direct stimulation to get thoughts & ideas moving but at the same time it’s wise to wait for a few weeks after the eclipse to actually take action. Ideally we open new activity after the Sun moves into Aries on March 21st – this is launch date or our new natural year.

Lunar eclipses are very emotionally reactive at the best of times but never more so than when in Aqua/Leo! Yep it’s cool to avoid direct confrontation over coming weeks, even if you are really angry about current events. Instead we can use these forces to give ourself permission to open new directions and invite wonderful partners to join us. Expect the unexpected! If you have planets around 22 degrees of fixed signs…Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius your life is about to open a new era….and it’s very exciting. Moon in Leo can bring new levels of acknowledgement and Sun in Aqua allows us to affect society for positive conscious change!

Ah then we have our Sun moving into the sublime and inspirational sign of Pisces on Feb 19th. This is the final sign of the 12-fold Zodiac process and signals the completion of our natural year. Ideally we are meant to release the past cycle, distill the best of our experiences to take forward with us, and gestate our dreams and inspiration for the year ahead. So sage or purify your home, take lots of mineral baths to cleanse your aura and take time to rest & reflect as much as you can. We create our reality via our imagination & psychic projections so this is a great time to create your ‘vision board’ for what you wish to manifest after March 21st when Sun enters Aries and our new year truly begins! Your mantra is “I go with the flow inspired that I am creating the reality that I deserve”.

Meanwhile we also have the Solar Eclipse @ 8 degrees Pisces coming up on Feb 27th. This is the last of the Pisces/Virgo eclipses over the last 18 months. And yep there’s some bells & whistles on this one also. With Jupiter & Uranus performing their 2nd opposition joined by Mars in Aries we have another dose of wildcard activity for disruption of global affairs…”danger danger Will Robinson.” Take it as easy as possible in late Feb my friends as you also respond to some fab incoming opportunities!

Things are speedy now so once again the caution is to not make life changing decisions over coming weeks as they may be driven by frustration…just watch for incoming signals!! Uranus liberates old stuck patterns, Jupiter says be wise & Saturn says be realistic. The really big opportunity here offers us a personal upgrade in our conscious growth so we make a positive contribution to a more enlightened world.

I am heartened by expert Astrologer Bernadette Brady’s reading of this Eclipse Cycle – “This is a family of eclipses that brings with it the element of the pleasant surprise. Sudden happiness, a joyful event, the lucky break, the lucky win. The events which will be occurring can be believed and can positively change the person’s life”. We can feel the effect of Eclipses for a month or so proceeding then they are affective for 6 months until the second set in August 2017.

Have a fabulous February my friends as the winds of change swirl around us turning us in interesting new directions!! Love to all Maggie
