You should have a clear field to have a good understanding of what you want at your deepest levels. This coupled with old habit patterns surfacing now for you to see should make your choices easier than usual. Since later December, any responsibilities that you have either avoided or missed have also made their presence known. Use this time to “clean up your act.” The choices you make and the ways you handle these current circumstances will have a profound effect on what you’ll have to deal with over the next six months.
The roles of empathy and compassion in your life are in question right now. First, do you know what empathy and compassion are? Whether you are aware or not, they still play a major part in the decisions that you think are only influenced by “facts” and your mental capabilities. Second, do you know that the flow of them move in both directions; to you and from you? We project just as prolifically as we receive, regardless of whether we’re conscious of it or not. Other people are “reading” you too. Be aware that although you might be using your intuition (which an Aquarian usually denies the existence of) in the best way that you know how, your empathy, which is always at the root of compassion, is constantly registering in your subconscious and affects every decision and assessment you make every moment of every day. You must admit to yourself that there are forces within you that you don’t have a handle on. Even in the face of your best mental calculations, there are still components in whatever you do where you must “let go” and trust that the universe is moving in the best direction for your “flowering.” You can’t simply just “dope out” the meaning of life. In your heart, you know this is true even though you may not be willing to admit it to yourself, let alone, someone else. Life is not an equation to be solved. Your spirit is a lot more flexible and aware than your mind is. Your mind will always lose to your instincts in any deliberation of any important life navigation.
In mid May there will come sudden changes in your home, family or traditional practices. This could mean a move for you, someone else moving in or out, changes in how you support your home or in the how and where you receive nurturance. Look at where you draw your security from, emotional and financial, and assess whether all you depend on is solid and well founded. This change(s) could also include a move for a career or job change. Allow yourself to be flexible. In the long run, the change(s) will be beneficial for you and your family.
February 2018 Astrolights
With Mars having just moved into Sagittarius into the vacancy provided by Saturn’s move into Capricorn, things of an educational, religious, other cultural or philosophical nature feel like they’ve just taken off like a rocket. This may also relate to the sudden appearance of an opportunity to take a vacation out of the country or away from your cultural and religious environment. Take advantage now. Mars only stays in a sign for two months. Plan now. Then rest easy that you have a “get away” waiting for you after your hard work.
Things relating to our social status, career, authority and intended projects are now known and fairly solidified in terms of what you can expect. There is also a responsibility on the part of almost everyone for more interaction with the general public and the masses. More of what we do publicly will receive a lot more attention that it has in the past. Since our changed structure and authority are relatively new, we may also find many unanticipated reactions from those we are close with. Just hold tight to your personal values and act in ways that will allow you to respect yourself and sleep at night. Choices for action might be a bit more challenging than they have been in the past, especially, since a lot of the ground we’re covering is new.
We have a partial solar eclipse at 27 Aquarius on the 15th. In relationships, love given and love received may come into question. Are you receiving what you need? Are you giving your significant other what they need? Be sure to talk about this at length. With the new changes and Saturn’s shift, perception of how we and our significant other are dealing with new ground may need some clarity if things are to go smoothly. This way there will be few surprises. Also know that some of these surprises could be quite pleasurable for both of you.
This eclipse will also affect the wages, resources and support we receive from others from our career.
As Mars creeps up on trining Uranus in Aries throughout this month and next, expect all the unexpected and sudden occurrences to speed up and gain in influence. Most of the sudden changes will have intense and sweeping power. Hold tight to your values and perspectives. This will insure that you will end up in a good place when the dust settles. Enjoy the ride!
