Moon, Jupiter closest on February 23
You will see this planet energy in effect when you witness others acting on impulse or frustration… It’s my opinion that this is a configuration that is there to set elements of fate & destiny into motion… It’s like giving the needle on an old record player a push when the record is stuck… Sheeshka, I must be getting old because I just realized that many of you guys reading this may have never used a record player before… hehe…
Above and beyond all that… This week’s chart is loaded with spiritual significance… The kind that tries to reveal information that will help us to better understand what is going on around us and how we can thrive regardless of what we encounter… The energy tends to be rather up-beat but is very practical at the same time.”~weeklyhoroscope.com
RADICAL, AUTHENTIC SELF-EMBODIMENT: Lessons from the Finger of Fate (Yod) involving Mars, North Node, Jupiter and Vesta-conjunct-Eris
- Stay grounded, do the little things that support your work, and keep your mental faculties honed.
- Pay attention to the voice of the Inner Critic as she just might have something valuable to tell you.
- Yes, you´re bringing in the Divine Waters of Spirit into your Sacred Being, but not everything that looks or claims or pretends to be Divine necessarily is.
- Use discernment, even if others project upon it as being ´condemning´ or ´judgemental´.
“I attune my energies with my intention to drop habits that distract me from my spiritual practice. I declare that I am prepared in consciousness to shape shift, to transform, and to purify my motives and reduce them to one: self-realization. The universe supports me in my aspiration, and I express my gratitude by remaining true to my intention.”

From PAT LILES from The Power Path.com:
“Here, it’s an invitation to surrender limiting Virgo daily habits, mental loops, and criticizing judgments, and let Pisces’ gifts of imagination, intuition and relationship to the great mysterious, feminine void flow through you and reorient your perspective.”~mysticmamma.com
From MOLLY HALL from Astrology.About.com:
“Virgo and Pisces are signs of devotion and magic, all along the spectrum from the worldly to the otherworldly.
“What’s outstanding here is that at 4 degrees, the luminaries are intoxicated — and enchanted — by Neptune (in Pisces). Neptune relates to the imagination, and to the phenomenon of breaking through our own frames of perception to something beyond.
“The dreams of Neptune, or our own authentic eternal selves, have to make it past the gatekeepers within (beliefs).~mysticmamma.com
“Which strikes to the nervous system cause you to escape from being present? This can be a time of clearing, simplifying and purifying.
“You become the Virgin, whole-unto-herself (or himself), able to take in new experiences, and be changed by them.”

LENA STEVENS, from The Power Path.com:
“Be flexible and resilient and incorporate whatever is new into your plan instead of resisting it. Chances are it will only enhance and motivate something wonderful.
“We are still not able to ‘see around the corner’ so much of the month requires trust that everything is moving in the right direction.
“Who are you? This is the big question this month. You have an opportunity to explore yourself in new ways and commit to choosing what is important to you regardless of what others may think.
“Perhaps the most important committed choices will be around the relationship with yourself. What committed choices will you make this month to better take care of yourself, to improve yourself in some way, to honor yourself, to support yourself, to heal yourself, and to love yourself?
“The physical body needs a regular discipline this month. There is a lot of energy that has been log-jammed from last month’s retrograde cycle and it needs to be expressed.© Copyright 2015 ~Lena Stevens All Rights Reserved~mysticmamma.comWater: (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) exhibit benevolence. For the astrological moon signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces emotional expression becomes a must. Their sign makes them want to take care and be taken care of. Their free expression of emotions becomes extremely important. While those in the moon sign of Scorpio can hold resentment for a lifetime if their emotions are not released, Pisces has a caring and tenderness and helps other people in need. They unconditionally come to the aid of the sick and the unfortunate just as they would for one of their own family, and most often ask nothing in return. Water represents the Moksa Houses. These are houses of the mind, feelings, and perceptions and are the most subtle, deep, and hidden houses.

This is a time to complete old projects and let go of strategies and situations that aren’t working. This is an important time for reversing circumstances, releasing old ways of thinking, removing unwanted negative energies, along with addictions, illness, or oppressive belief systems.

~peacefulmind.com “Get ready for PISCES!!!! Yikes! The ride is about to get wilder. Let’s see if we can do it with no hands! Yes, that’s right, trust ourselves, trust the ride, and let go of fear. However, that does not mean let go of discrimination….. let’s remember that there is a wide variety of rides in this amusement park and we do still have CHOICE. No victims here, just humans doing what humans do, which is perfect in its imperfection.
However, the good news is that great successes can be had and goals achieved with this kind of selfless serving and tremendous effort.It’s the purification of desire. “This is the best expression of me NOW.”DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. BECAUSE THE LONGING IS INTENSE.May I know the source of what,Appears within my mind,And only act upon that which,My heart and soul align.”Let’s not forget that the Soul, which goes from lifetime to lifetime, is not really as attached to anything as much as the ego is. We are creating messes unconsciously, but hey, that’s how we learn!
~(To paraphrase Richard Bach, “What a caterpillar (ego) calls the end of the world, the Master (Soul) calls a butterfly.”~L)
I have no idea what an Alpha Groom is. Maybe a waxing procedure?~L I want to bring your attention to Soren Kierkegaard as a thinker and also as a person who is going to help us through this Virgo~Pisces axis (you notice I chose not to call it a crisis). This both/and thinking that I have been advocating is really nothing new. It was Vedic before it was the Buddhist Middle Way
and that’s as far as we can now track it academically. The idea of complementary opposites is even older still, in my estimation, because it is biological.The lymph system (governed astrologically by Pisces) is a both/and system. It encounters pathogens and responds to them in a way that allows for both pathogen and health simultaneously. The lymphatic system is going to meet that pathogen again and after first contact it has a protocol. While the pathogen is denied a host, it is not attacked out in the environment. Only when it crosses the barrier into the body is it fought against. Enlightened, no?This is the same process in both/and consciousness, however, it used to be considered most prudent to create the middle path by MODERATION. Balance was sought by limitation, bias and extremism; hence all the monks (not a viable biological model). Kierkegaard (and I argue, biological systems) seem to have EXPANSION as their method. The idea is to hold both extremes (in the biological example–disease and health) in the integrated wholeness of NON-IDENTIFICATION, or hold space for both while being neither. This could be seen as the call to growth, not limitation. Not termination. Violation of the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Something I have jokingly called “extropy”. It’ll get you out of bed at 3am. Get it? Extra pee?
Because moderation and limitation are control tactics and by their nature are going to wear me down (see the 2nd law of thermodynamics), I need to see if there is room to evolve beyond them. If I follow my metaphor of the immune system; then I have to allow exposure to the pathogen in order to reach my potential apex of development. If I leave it out of my experience, I am stunted. This leads me to believe that it’s good to feel torn between extremes because to hold both is to be larger than both and in the words of one of my favorite monkeys: “If I allow it to be, it has no control over me.”~Peter Gabrielnot sure that’s the actual lyric, but it sure bolsters my argument.just to pull it all together. With some kind of cat award.
SO! OK! We are going to do Ren’s suggestions for Pisces yoga to aid the lymphatic system (because it doesn’t have it’s own pump), play with our both /and consciousness and be rather upright, unbiased, centered monkeys on Thursday at noon and Saturday at 10:45am. We will swing from the trees of both sides of the extremes and ask how we can be, act and think differently if both sides are true.That should be something. This Virgo~Pisces Axis is with us for a while yet, let’s woo it.Hope to see you,~L
