Jupiter went direct last week and Imbolc is being passed through now, so there is some sense of light at the end of the tunnel of our winter doldrums. New enthusiasm and inspiration, especially for future endeavors, can be accessed now.
We are now in the second half of our Winter season here in the northern hemisphere of the Earth. The Groundhog has spoken of light on the way for this coming Spring 2013.
In the year 2013, Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day same-old same-old reality will be broken open into a new day this year for all of us.
March 2013 promises a new crack of dawn for this year; and then for this Spring 2013, Act I of our new world dramas will erupt into our collective global consciousness.
There will be three eclipses this spring, one more than the usual, and our world view will shake up considerably then. Uranus square Pluto will have another exact meeting in Spring 2013 also, bringing world tensions to a full boil.
Later this year, especially in the autumn of 2013, when there are more eclipses and another Uranus/Pluto meeting, more great change will swirl into our lives. Comet Ison, expected to a be an extremely bright one, comes also this Autumn 2013.
And then in April 2014, there is a Grand Cross Cardinal T-square, containing both Uranus and Pluto, making almost exact aspect to the USA natal Sun. Spring Eclipse 2014 will also be going on then.
So world transformation, especially for the USA, will be very strong over the next year and a half or so. This could be one of the biggest world change periods we have or will experience in our lifetimes.
This Spring 2013 will usher in the beginning stages of this huge change, and we will talk more specifics as we get into March 2013.
For now, however, there is a lot of slo-mo coming. Mars has just gone into Pisces, and Mercury follows on Tuesday the 5th of February. They will both be in conjunction with Neptune in Pisces this coming week. Neptune went into Pisces in 2011 and will stay there until 2026.
Neptune loves to be in Pisces. Neptune, the god of the seas, guides our soul voyages in oceanic Pisces. Neptune is considered the “ruler” of Pisces.
Pisces represents the flow of inner soul life, the kingdom within. It is the music and magic of the soul realm. It is also a very nebulous realm, one that cannot easily be measured or controlled like the physical world.
As Mars and Mercury go into Pisces and make conjunction with Neptune this week, it is best to let go and surrender any tight agendas or missions of ambition. It is best to trust more that which is out of your control. If you push too much you will be tend to be frustrated and disappointed. If you make intention, and then let the flow of the soul realm and Universe take over, you will have less stress.
So even though we are in Sun in Aquarius time of year now, the Pisces waves are already flowing in. The Sun will not be in Pisces until February 18.
Use this influx of Neptunian and Piscean energies now to be imaginative and creative and to enter deeper levels of poetic metaphors of consciousness. There may be a greater desire to escape “reality” and to dream more. In fact, this is a good time to look more closely at your dreams for deeper meaning. The inner world beckons, and so is the potential for healing.
On Sunday February 3, we begin the last quarter phase of the Moon, in Scorpio. Increased intensity of emotion may threaten desires to stay safely in the bubble of your mind.
The last quarter Moon also brings a week of moving yin-ward into your feelings and slower activity. The last quarter Moon is time to reflect, correct, and prepare before the next new moon.
And the next New Moon is in Aquarius on Sunday February 10 at 2:20 AM EST. That day also brings the Chinese New Year of the Snake. The snake symbolically fits perfectly with the coming year of great transformation here on Earth, as the snake sheds its skins and renews.
But this coming week, before the New Moon in Aquarius, as we move through the last quarter waning Moon, and experience the inner flow of Neptune and Pisces, we lay back and enjoy. We allow ourselves to release, to release old wounds, to release our need to control.
There is plenty of big change and lots of fiery energies coming this Spring 2013. But for now take the voyage into your inner waters of soul.
The Aquarian Age is getting stronger and stronger in that inner world, and you can contact it from your soul now. Remember that it is our consciousness, and our belief systems that first take us to new realms. And that Aquarian Age can be found inside now, in our imaginations and visualizations.
Then when the storms blow in to take our collective ship out of the Old Age into the Aquarian Age, you will already see and know our destination. That knowing will give you the hope and strength to make it through the storms.
See you next week,
