As you’ve probably figured out by now, there are so many glorious astrologers that I absolutely treasure, and Rhea Wolf is certainly one!
So I wanted to share her “Love Letter” about tomorrow’s Full Moon in Leo (6:53pm, Eastern), so you can plan your Love celebrations accordingly.
From the iced in, snowy South, I wish you warmth and peace. And may all your rites most blessed be! ~ Beth
Dear Ones ~
Does it seem like the crazy weather of the past month – from ice and snow, to floods and droughts – are hell-bent on forcing things to shut down? Just as long as it doesn’t shut down our hearts, the disruption of routines could be a good thing. A call to stop taking so many actions that go against nature.
The Full Moon in Leo shines forth on Valentine’s Day this year. If you have plans with a special loved one, please take to heart that miscommunication, intense feelings and drama will be on the menu.
Don’t get me wrong; you could have a lavishly Leonine romantic rendezvous – if you can manage to stay grounded in your body and lighthearted if things go awry.
My advice? Keep your plans simple this weekend. Rather than flashy, go for heart-felt. To take actions that are heart-felt, you have to know what your heart feels.
The astrology for the rest of the month is taken up with Mercury retrograde snafus and tension-filled aspects. It looks like our flow will be a bit off this month – like being in the right place, but at the wrong time. If we are patient and careful, there will still be mix-ups and incongruities.
Mercury is retrograde for all of February, reminding us to slow down, review and revisit our plans. And then, just when the mental confusion clears – Mars stations retrograde on March 1 and continues backsliding until mid-May.
As I said in my 2014 forecast, Mars retrograde in Libra is a lesson in learning to respond rather than react — developing Love Strategies.
As we approach the New Moon in Pisces on the 28th, delving into your own true nature is real medicine. When you know who you are and what you want, it’s possible to create loving responses rather than reacting rashly to trying situations. A heart that knows itself isn’t easily manipulated or rushed.
But how do we learn who we are? Here’s a suggestion from Jean Shinoda Bolen, feminist icon and author of “The Millionth Circle:”
“Listening, witnessing, role modeling, reacting, deepening, mirroring, laughing, crying, grieving, drawing upon experience, and sharing the wisdom of experience, women in circles support each other and discover themselves…[these circles are a] revolutionary-evolutionary movement hidden in plain sight…
“I believe that the thought that women together can change the world is emerging into the minds and hearts of many of us, and that the vessel for personal and planetary evolution is the circle with a spiritual center. Before you can do something that you’ve never done, you have to be able to imagine it is possible.”
Rather than spinning your wheels for the next month, find your circle with a spiritual center. May it be so.
