Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|Star Card (Aquarius) - Dürer Tarot|
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
For the past few weeks most of the energy has been related to the planets in Capricorn. With Pluto in Capricorn, the changes we are going through collectively and individually are potent and powerful. The recent visit of Venus with Pluto encourages all of us to make a change in how we relate to our body and the earth. Money and establishments have been an important issue since the beginning of 2016 with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn and the strong emphasis of Plutonian energy we’ve been dealing with.
Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and is represented by the Fool in the tarot - freedom and new beginnings. Uranus has been in a long-term connection with Pluto that puts emphasis on our personal need for freedom vs. old patterns we’ve been stuck in for long enough. On a larger scale this also includes seeking freedom from the established norms of society that we’ve outgrown. We are collectively going through major transformations individually and collectively. Though these larger issues of politics and the economy will continue, I won’t be talking much about that this week, as the past few weeks have been focused on such issues.
Astrology speaks to the whole spectrum of human experience.
Now, we are now focusing on a more optimistic way forward. We’re aware of what is, and now it’s time to start taking a new approach.
With the New Moon in Aquarius starting off this week, we are looking forward with hope and planting seeds to create the vision we want for our lives. Hopefully, over the past couple of weeks you’ve been able to tap into the Plutonian energy, and purge a lot of the unwanted aspects out of your life to make room for the new energy we are granted now.
Capricorn is about where we need to do the work to achieve a strong foundation and stable footing. Aquarius is about making a difference in bigger ways, finding solutions and breaking free from what holds you back. We are now ready to move forward with inspiration and optimism, away from the limits of traditions and towards new ways of thinking.
Aquarius is the important step towards higher consciousness where we recognize ourselves as part of the collective. Your unique voice that inspires the world around you is called for. Now that we have technology, each of us has the ability to reach around the world instantly. Our individual thoughts and ideas are more free than ever to reach out and touch the collective.
Mercury, now direct, will be leaving Capricorn later this week and entering Aquarius on Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 5:43 pm ET bringing a new way of thinking forward. So between Monday and Saturday, Mercury will be finishing his visit with Capricorn this week. The way we are thinking about what we want to achieve will continue to transform and change this week. New creative and inventive ideas will begin to formulate more quickly as we finish off this week and head into next week.
Pay special attention to the books, messages, articles, informative programs and insights that have been showing up for you in the days close to this New Moon in Aquarius. Make notes and see which new ideas you want to focus on more to encourage your growth and learning in the subject matter that captures your interest as we go forward.
Aquarius is about sciences as well. It is where we ask questions with the intention of moving beyond what we thought we once knew, moving beyond traditional thought, towards freer thought.
We have a couple of other notable aspects happening this week as well.
Venus in Capricorn is in harmony with Jupiter in Virgo on Wednesday, February 10th. This puts extra emphasis on the earth element. This can show up in our lives in a few ways.
In love, bonds can grow immensely, and physical connection becomes more important. The appreciation of beauty increases significantly. If you have body image issues you could find that practicing looking in the mirror more and appreciating the gift of your physical self as it is, deserves to be honored and respected. More gratitude for your physical incarnation, and the incarnation of others is recommended.
Having a clean, organized, beautiful, and harmonious environment in your office and home becomes more important as well. Hopefully you’ve had a chance recently to tap into the Pluto energy with Venus nearby so you can get rid of any junk and clutter in favor of a more organized space for better energy flow and harmony.
The symbol of Venus is a circle, representing the soul, above a cross, representing matter and the material world. This symbol resembles a hand mirror. It is a symbol of beauty, but so much more. Everyone has a different relationship with mirrors. Some want to avoid seeing their reflection due to poor self-image issues, while others are obsessively looking at the superficial, externalities of makeup, hair, and the like. How many of us actually really see ourselves in the mirror? How many of us take the time to look deep into our own eyes and see beyond the judgment and opinion of the material aesthetic and go deeper to look at who it is that exists behind those eyes?
A long, healthy look at yourself, your physical surface and the deeper self behind those eyes, is a good practice this week. Jupiter encourages us to see more of who we really are now and to recognize the deep wisdom of life within. This is a great time to transform your relationship with yourself with more loving eyes.
The Star card in the tarot represents Aquarius and we see the woman pouring water into the reflective surface of the water, representing our collective consciousness and our mirror. In the Rider Waite deck we see in the sky of this card’s imagery the stars are laid out in the formation of what some say resembles the hand mirror symbol of Venus hearkening to the power of Venus, the Goddess of Love and the Divine Feminine. Love can permeate all we do.
This can be a highly important time for artists. Venus rules beauty and the arts. When you practice creating art, it reflects back to you who you are. Creating art has us realize the many aspects of ourselves. It reflects our fears and inhibitions about our abilities, our patience with ourselves or lack thereof, our stamina and our ability to be free to explore and play. Creating art brings out our emotions that may have long been locked away. In the practice of creating art we see where we need to grow in our skills, but more importantly in our emotional selves. Though the art created is important for the observers experience, what is more important as the creator of the art, is the process of self discovery we experience in the process of its creation. Art is like a mirror that shows us who we are on deep levels. Art is an act of discovery, trust and can be an effective form of therapy.
Mars in Scorpio and Jupiter in Virgo are in harmony on Saturday, February 13, soon after Mercury enters Aquarius. Willpower and determination get a positive boost later this week. We are more likely to be inspired by wise ideas. We are more likely to make discoveries that lead to a more philosophical outlook on life as well.
Whatever you are interested in learning can lead to exciting realizations this week. Meditation and practices in deep inner reflection can open new vistas that get us more excited about life. This can be a great time to start a new exercise program to amp up your energy levels. It’s a great time to create a plan of action with a purposeful outlook. An inquiring mind and an investigative, resourceful approach can stimulate your passion for bigger possibilities.
Overall, the New Moon in Aquarius sets us up for hopeful new beginnings we all get to grow into over the next couple of weeks. Venus is an important power player this week along with Jupiter, encouraging us to allow love to transform our lives in big ways, inside and out. Loving yourself is pivotal in helping to change the world around you. Mercury heads into Aquarius at the end of the week, adding more emphasis to our most inventive, solutions oriented thinking.
Any futuristic, sci-fi movies that get you to think outside the box are recommended now. Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson, a remake of the original Cosmos by Carl Sagan, is available on Netflix. This is a great choice to expand your outlook. It also demonstrates how new discoveries conflict with old, established thought patterns, which is in tune with the transition of focus of energy from traditional Capricorn to freedom-loving, innovative Aquarius this week.
"Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future."
~ Steve Jobs
