February 14 | Full Moon at 26 Leo

Happy Valentine's Day!

Romance is on the front burner when the full Moon is in the  sign of Leo the lover. If your love is a fire sign lady – Aries, Leo or Sagittarius – she loves attention.  Make sure she has something that sparkles. For earth sweethearts – Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn – nothing but the best. Woo her  with dinner in the finest restaurant in town. Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – value communication.  A declaration of love via Valentine or flowers is always appreciated. Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces – are  sentimental. How about drinks and dancing?

Mercury is retrograde February 6-28th. Now that Venus is no longer retrograde,  Mercury goes retrograde  which brings unexpected events.  Read the fine print.  Postpone major decisions and purchases until March 1– if possible!

Big Correction in the Stock Market. The planet Jupiter (expansion) square Uranus (sudden changes) brings  a big correction in the stock market.  Watch the last two weeks of February for reaction from the market to more problems with European economy. Presidential approval rating remains low this month.

Moon Cycles for March 2014

March 1 | New Moon | 10 Pisces

The new moon is in positive aspect to Jupiter, so people breathe  a sigh of relief.  Hope and Spring are on the horizon. People are kinder and in the mood for conversation. Mercury goes direct so communications improve.

March 16 | Full Moon | 26 Virgo

People are in the mood for shopping for Virgo items – health fitness, and practical items for the house. There is also more interest in  the details of  housekeeping, office organization, and community affairs. Take time to clean and clear home and work environment.  Keep gossip in check by  remembering to "See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil."

March 2-May 20, 2014 | Mars retrograde

If it isn't one thing, it's another! Everything seems to take more time and effort because Mars is in its fall in Libra and retrograde to boot. Those in authority may make unreasonable demands on workers, so employees feel frustrated. On the national front, Mars retrograde could indicate a lack of leadership, false starts and a possible military crisis during March 2-May 20, 2014.  A major event could occur close to the April 29th eclipse.

Happy New Year

In many ways 2014 is likely to be repeat of 2013-- with continuing confusion. Watch late April as the approach of the April 26th eclipse will create more uncertainty.  Late June will bring a repeat of budget battle of  2013, so watch for the stock market to react swiftly.  The big question in 2013:

"How is the United States going to pay its bills?"

That said, there are some bright spots.   More positive psychology coming .  MINDFULNESS  is the new buzz word, as psychologist work to understand the intuitive function of the mind.   Watch also for new medical break troughs.

The October Lunar eclipse is also conjunct Uranus in the grand fire trine.

This could herald more spiritual awakening.

This is a month of change and  reversals.  In Washington, the debate on the budget will take most of the month. Money is tight this month, and so are  tempers.

Mercury Retrograde Dates

October 21–November 10

When Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and postpone  signing contracts.  Take time to read the fine print.  This is time to plan, but wait until Mercury is no longer retrograde to make any final decisions.  Watch for incredible  coincidences to occur, as intuition is strong during this period!!

Understanding The Moon Phases

Moon Phases Simplified

It's probably easiest to understand the moon cycle in this order: new moon and full moon, first quarter and third quarter, and the phases in between. The new moon occurs when the moon is positioned between the earth and sun. According to astrology, this is the best time to plant or start a new project. As the moon waxes, this is a time of increasing lunar energy. At a full moon, the lunar energy intensifies. Traditionally, the full Moon in August is the best time for harvesting. The full Moon often brings matters to the public attention. As the moon wanes, the energy slows down. The weakest lunar influence is during the last quarter. This is a good time for wrapping up projects
