Dear Friends,
Something to look forward to! On August 21st, 2017 there was a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo. Think about where you were then and what was going on. This Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius is opposite that point. You finally, after some thought, cleaning up, change and reflection you can move forward. Breaking the old mold. New ideas and a propulsion that we haven’t had.is brought about by this New Moon/Solar Eclipse. An interesting Valentine’s Day. It celebrates good friends as well as lovers. Mercury is in Aquarius joined with the Eclipse. Good ideas come forth. It is time to get some excitement in your life. Good excitement. This New Moon in Aquarius is favorable to Uranus in Aries. Uranus has put you on a roller coaster for the last 7 years. It is time to get off and build what you want now. Aquarius is all about freedom and breaking old patterns. Look forward to the next 6 months for that to happen.

A NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE will occur on FEBRUARY 15, 2018 4:04 PM EST at 27 degrees AQUARIUS 07 minutes.
The Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog!

This is a fixed air sign. This is the sign of the rebel or the individualist. They approach life is through their intellect. Old molds, old concepts, those things which have outgrown their usefulness, in every area of life, are being shattered. New ideas, brilliance, and new inventions show us a new way now. Public affairs become more important, as there is an interest in the welfare of others in a social sense. The house where Aquarius is in your chart is where you are encouraged not to conform. You are no longer limited by conventional boundaries; therefore, you are free to be different, to be inventive, and to be yourself. This is where you can be truly creative, truly unique, or contribute your utmost to humanitarian progress. You must dare to break away from established customs, to go one step further, and investigate the potentials of tomorrow.

The power to relate to others is this sign’s greatest concern. Beauty, balance, harmony, equality, and justice are important where this is in your chart. This New Moon will let us know where we need to bring things into balance. What about relationships? Are we being fair? Is this area one-sided? All lessons of Libra involve the realization and integration of opposites, particularly those contrasts found within personal relationships. The primary purpose of this sign is one of sharing—sharing ideas, sharing experiences, sharing your life—with others. The house that Libra is on in your chart is where you need to develop a healthy balance between personal goals and respect for the goals of others. Libra shows where you need relationships, which offer feedback.

THE DWAD:           SAGITTARIUS   Travel, education, religion, philosophy, and higher aspirations. Looking to the future. Optimism and friendliness. This sign brings restlessness and a desire for sports and adventure. Their zeal for the truth makes them blurt out just what they are thinking. This sign offers experiences, which encourage you to look ahead. In the house of Sagittarius, the future beckons. You need to look ahead, broaden your horizons, and seek out experiences, which cultivate wisdom.

A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon that affects us for a couple of years. The Year of the Dog is all about dedication and devotion. It is time to be straight forward with your intentions. Seems like this Eclipse is opening the door to new things that require your dedication. Uranus indicates the way in which a person’s urge for freedom and individuality is manifested. Saturn indicates our need for structure and boundaries. Uranus is in Aries asking us to re-invent ourselves. Being true to who you are is the intention. Saturn is in its own Sign, Capricorn. It is time to build it if you want it. You need to believe you can first. Venus, the ruler of Libra, is in Pisces joined with Neptune. You need faith and devotion to make things happen. Mars is in Sagittarius which puts some energy into the situation but it is square to Venus and Neptune in Pisces. You must dance with the energy you can’t force it.

This is a symbol of the powers of immediate analysis which enable man to achieve his commonplace or practical goals. Here he has full assurance of an intelligence and order to be found throughout the world of everyday realities, and he comes to see that a very real cooperation of natural conditions and forces may be enlisted for any project of special concern. The individual learns that when he will take responsibility for events he may shape them to his own convenience, and thus find ways to capitalize on any difficulties that arise. The keyword is EFFICIENCY. When positive, the degree is exceptional ability in manipulating the fundamental complexities of living, and when negative, self-defeating worry over trifles.
