I am leaving for vacation today, will miss one week’s forecasting next Saturday. My next forecast will be on Saturday March 10. Planetarily speaking, the next couple of weeks will be relatively slow. We experienced a New Moon in Pisces on February 21 and the Full Moon in Virgo will not be until March 8. There are no major aspects in between. We are still in the midst of Mars Retrograde, and will be until April 13.
So generally it is time to go inward and yin-ward, to process your thoughts and feelings, to reconnect spiritually, to heal, to release, to surrender your striving will.
We are walking through the last few weeks of Winter, taking our time to look at any ghosts from the past that need our attention before they are released.
Spring begins on March 20 here on the east coast USA and all points east of here. Spring is on March 19 to most points west of here. After that renewed life begins energetically. Nature begins to stir from its winter sleep.
Until then we go with the flow and go deeper inside. Mars is Retrograde and Mercury will also go Retrograde on March 12. The theme is of rewind and reflect and recalculate and readjust and re-member.
Soon enough the Eclipse Season will be upon us and there will be little time for inward journeying and healing. Energies of change will be greatly accelerating then.
If we take time to look outside of our inner soul swimming now, we see a world way out of balance. Have you been watching the Republican debates this winter?
Except for Ron Paul, everyone says whatever they believe will turn on the more mentally dense and neanderthal base of the party.
Conservative is not a bad thing in essence, if its intentions are to slow too rapid growth, to put limits on overly permissive attitudes, to protect valued principles, to honor tradition and rules, and to put limits on excessive spending.
But “conservatives” over the last several years have spent as much as liberals, especially for military. And conservatives have all too often in recent decades stood for bigotry and hatred and a blockage of energies of progress, growth, evolution, and more unfied connection with our brothers and sisters all over the world.
And so called liberals have gotten more wimpy and do not stand tall enough for what they believe in. They are bought out by special interests as much as conservatives, and in recent years have gotten more and more enamored with military adventurism.
I saw an ad recently that showed a ballot with three choices: republican, democrat, and awake. That is more and more the case here in the USA. We need third party movements that can be truly viable, so people will have real choice again.
There is an Aquarian Age developing, and the old crusty ways and people need to go. In America now, at least in the mainstream, new and fresh voices are not heard. People who speak the truth have little voice to be heard. Again Ron Paul is refreshing in that he speaks straight and frank and down to Earth. He also feels strongly about liberties guaranteed by the constitution, and obviously realizes that we are spending too much money on the military and that we have have unjustly invaded other countries around the world.
But he has a past of publishing very bigoted newsletters that he says he didn’t read, and he may be too beholden to the Republican Party. But at least he is saying things that the people of this country need to hear and so many young people especially are listening.
As time and change speed up, many new voices will be heard, voices that speak truth and love, and help to lead us forward into a New World.
These voices will come through the cracks in the foundation of that Old World crumbling. The voices will get stronger and stronger, as it gets more obvious that there is no hope of resurrecting the current system.
The current economic system will still unravel, no matter how it appears to be improving now. There is military conflict brewing, conflict that will make it obvious to all discerning and caring souls that we cannot continue anymore in the old ways.
The holes in the Titanic old world ship cannot be held much longer with the duct tape of smoke and mirrors. Judgement Day is nigh for that ship of fools who are holding too tightly to old security systems that are no longer viable.
The days of privilege for the few are rapidly vanishing. The days of an old paradigm run on dominance and greed is dissolving.
The new Eclipse Season, with eclipses on May 20 and June 4, will soon shake up our world, and help us to better release the old ways. New voices of reason and care will emerge.
Tune in now, during this inward time before the storms, to the deep movement of transformation into a New Paradim and World. You will find energies and spirits that bring hope and new vision and inspiration. They are waiting for your connection.
See you soon,
