February’s Super Full Moon in Leo

The full moon of February 19th peaks at 10:53 A.M. EST, but will appear full right through the evening.

It is also happens to be a Supermoon! According to NASA, Supermoons occur when the full moon is at its closest point to the Earth. This particular full moon will be the nearest, largest, and brightest full Moon of the year!

The full moon is a great gauge of our emotional energy. Our passions and feelings run very deep during a full moon, but are extra-charged whenever the full moon in Leo, which it is right now. It’s good to be aware of this fact because we may find our emotions being pulled in opposite directions. Moon in Leo tugs our feelings towards our personal needs, however, with the Sun being in Aquarius we are being pushed to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of our professional life.

So, today, make sure you maintain equilibrium between these two important areas of your life—the personal and professional. This doesn’t mean to hold back, you should fully express your enthusiasm and passion in both your work and in your relationships.

Sun in Aquarius: Prosperity and the Fulfillment of Your Dreams

The Sun moves into the sign Aquarius on February 11th and stays until March 14th. This is a very special time of year for all Aquarians, but we must remember, each and every one of us has the 12 signs in our astrological chart, which means we all have Aquarius in one of our houses. And whichever house Aquarius resides in within your chart is the area of your life where the effects of the Sun in Aquarius have the most impact.

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac relating to groups, prosperity and the fulfillment of dreams. It reflects the Bible verse, Ask and you shall receive. It is associated with reaping benefits of all kinds – they can be physical, material, emotional, spiritual, or all of the above depending on how we perceive what a gain means to us. Aquarius is represented by the symbol of the water bearer, who brings nourishment to humanity. Its keyword is “I help”. Aquarius focuses on groups that have a humanitarian dimension.

The ideas of Aquarius are original, humanitarian and idiosyncratic. During this time, you might be interested in exploring ideas others might perceive as unorthodox, but are often based on knowledge from antiquity, such as the sciences of astrology and palmistry which Aquarius rules. People with a strong Aquarius influence are often considered eccentric because they are ahead of their time. They live by their own ideas—usually visionary and thought provoking – and, consequently, do not follow the norm.

Escaping the Perception Gap

Lovebirds James and Laurie are roughly the same age, so they are not separated by a generation gap. Unfortunately, James and Laurie don’t perceive the world (or their relationship) in the same way, which means they are separated by a perception gap.

James’ perception tells him that Laurie has no problem with him taking some time to relax by himself and chill out reading the newspaper. But Laurie’s perception tells her that James is deliberately ignoring her, which (to her) means she is not smart enough, pretty enough or interesting enough to be worthy of James’ love and attention.

James thinks Laurie should understand he is tired and needs a little alone time, but eventually he senses her discomfort and feels judged, isolated and resentful. Laurie is upset that James is not giving her his full attention and trying to engage her in conversation; she is resentful that he is being selfish and feels excluded and ignored. The lovebirds are misperceiving each other, emotions are heating up and tempers could quickly flare.

James and Laurie have entered the perception gap; they need a way out before it undermines their relationship—before the gap widens and becomes a chasm they can’t escape.

Luckily for both James and Laurie, they can easily change this potentially damaging scenario by switching the lens of their perception from one of emotion to one of devotion. If Laurie can shift her focus from expecting something from James to wanting only what is best for him, she will no longer feel ignored—quite the opposite, she will take joy in the fact that James finds pleasure in a brief reading and relaxing respite. And if James can take a peek over the top of his newspaper once in a while to ask Laurie if she is okay, she won’t feel ignored and he will feel happy knowing she is content. If James and Laurie can conquer their emotion with devotion, the perception gap will be closed and all will be well in their contented love nest!

Losing our peace of mind because we expect our happiness to be delivered to us through the words or actions of others—be it a lover, boss, family member or friend—is a sure sign we are not thinking correctly . . . that we are dependent on others for our joy or sense of self-worth. True happiness, contentment and peace of mind can only come from within. When we seek it from outside ourselves we fall victim to our vacillating desires, the whims and moods of others, or to the misperceptions of our unreliable physical senses. In any of these cases, we are pulled away from our peaceful, spiritual center within—the only place where pure, selfless love can blossom, grow and be expressed. There is no room for anger, resentment or disappointed in a loving heart, only happiness and joy. As the great sage Paramahansa Yogananda wrote: “Real love is only happy in the happiness of the beloved”.

The Dynamic Transit of Mars in Aries: February 3-March 20

 

The warrior planet Mars marched out of the sign of Pisces February 3rd and entered its home sign of Aries, which it rules and where its dynamic energy is very powerful.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is known as the great initiator of projects, schemes and dreams. In Aries, our energy is young and boundless, our spirits are high, and our optimism is at full-throttle—a driving combination that emboldens us to tackle any new task, no matter how demanding, and to get things going. It is Aries that gives us the impulse and motivation to take that first step in a journey of 1,000 miles, to type the first word of a novel, or to lay the foundational brick of a skyscraper.

Mars in Aries infuses us with courage, stamina and vigor, making this time a truly extraordinary transit for any new undertaking. No need to pause and sweat over the details of how things will turn out in the long run, just grab the ball and start running toward the end zone. This is a transit of action and beginnings; if you don’t get started, you won’t have any details to worry about anyway.

The main cautionary note concerning Mars in Aries is that both the planet Mars and the sign Aries possess an aggressive nature; the combination of their forceful energies can make us ultra-competitive or even downright combative. This may manifest in our behavior as arrogance, petulance, an impatient or dismissive attitude toward companions, coworkers and competitors or as angry intolerance with anyone we perceive to be standing between us and our goal. The key to productively channeling this intense energy is through self-control and self-awareness . . . and the greatest tool available to humankind for developing these traits is daily meditation. Fortunately, this transit is a doubly auspicious time to develop a regular meditation practice—not only will Mars in Aries give us the initiative to begin meditating, but by meditating we will be able to make the most of everything a Mars-Aries transit has to offer. It’s a win-win scenario!

This transit will last only six weeks, but in those six weeks we can make a start at transforming ourselves and start a new chapter in our lives. So let’s make the most of it by taking on a project or cause that has been sitting on the back burner, be it a proper diet or exercise routine, a spiritual discipline, a job search, volunteering in the community or mentoring someone in need of help and guidance. Even if it is just making a phone call you have been putting off—now is the time to do it! Stop waiting and start acting, the force of Mars in Aries is with you!
