February is eclipse season and love month. February's Full Moon bursts with heart energy. Experience physical heart opening practice with plenty of astrological insight on February 11th. Define and move for your heart's desire. Like Beck sings, " Heart is a Drum", and Kate Beever, musician/ music therapist complements our heartbeats and breath with live percussion during yoga. Get in on this action at this link or in the SY studio. 2-3:45 pm at Scarborough Yoga.
Thursday: Quiet contemplation. Processing alone or by meeting with others and determine the next course of action. Work through issues of justice, balance, and self versus group. The Capricorn Moon aligns with Venus in Pisces. Be realistic yet gentle and progressive while taking feelings into consideration. Let go of what's futile or unproductive in favor of what can be if you allow it. Welcome fresh energy by releasing a burden you don't need or cannot change. Today's color is Black.
Friday: Void Moon 2:18 to 3:37 am ET. Moon to Aquarius, the visionary and scientist. New Moon is at 7:07 pm ET. Venus square to Saturn in Sagittarius. Partners, couples and other duos decide how or whether to move forward together. Avoid sarcasm or snarky ways that may result from bottled up anger or frustration. Move from passive feelings to conscious conversation and self expression. Time beginnings from 7:07 pm on. This ushers in eclipse season since this New Moon leads to the first eclipse of 2017, in Leo on the 10th/11th according to time zone. Today's color is White.
Saturday: Mars moves to his home sign Aries at 12:39 am ET. Mars is bold, innovative and rebellious in the first zodiac sign. This begins the Year of the Rooster in Chinese zodiac. Rooster year is about finding peace by confronting fear. In the book Chinese Power Animals, Pamela Leigh Powers notes that the media is constantly feeding fear as are governments and agencies like insurance companies. I would add pharmaceutical advertisements to that list. For a change, take note of what's not wrong and also of how you do have power. Banish some fear and experience more peace in yourself. Aquarius Moon is New and today is a good time to start almost anything as Jupiter and Uranus align with the Moon. Today's color is Red.
Sunday: Void Moon 12:52 am to 11:10 am ET. Pisces Moon shifts us to feeling emotions, creative pursuits and spiritual experiences. Respond to and take care of your emotional life today. Mercury and Pluto meet in Capricorn which is another reminder to face fears. Recognize what makes you anxious or creates avoidance and, if possible, gain some perspective. Reverse negative thought patterns by remembering what you're grateful for and what's not wrong. Make a list. Starts are favored this week too. Wear or meditate on the color Blue.
Monday: Next time the Moon is in Pisces, in February, we'll experience a solar eclipse (Feb. 26th). Vibrations of what's to come are in the air now. Pisces relates to compassion for others as well as taking care of yourself and your emotions. Be gentle and act to maintain or improve your mental/emotional health and sensitively respond to others, including loved ones in any sort of crisis. Moon meets Neptune so be careful of delusions. Moon aligns with Mercury and Pluto continuing themes of Sunday's forecast. Today's color is Green.
Tuesday: Pisces Moon meets both Venus and Mars. Our relationships and ways of connecting with others are highlighted today. Forgive, receive, create or seek safe spaces and emotionally healthy or spiritual practices. Void Moon 12:36 to 4:46 pm ET. Aries Moon changes the tone from subtle and inner to bold and outward. Mercury squares Uranus in Aries. Ideas and inspiration may be followed by quick action. You may feel like there's no time to spare. We need to be careful of sarcasm and verbal outbursts. Today's color is Red.
Wednesday: Aries Moon in harmony with the Aquarius Sun for innovation, new ideas and unique self expression. Be authentic and seek the same in others. Explore alternative options or points of view. Beginnings are still favored. Pursue your passions. Today's color is Yellow.
