"I am the spiritual impulse itself - an evolutionary intuition embedded within the sacred unfolding of the cosmos." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

This weekend's Full Moon rises in consciousness over the landscape of the soul.

Four planets line up in Pisces, illuminating the world of dreams. The veils thin. We're more connected with Source, more aware of our existence beyond time and space.

Jupiter aligns with the Sun in Pisces and opposes the Moon in Virgo. Venus and Uranus, also in Pisces, bring unexpected pleasures. With Mars in Leo, passion burns bright.

Venus emerged earlier this week from her shamanic journey of the Underworld. Newly reborn, she reigns now as the Evening Star on the western horizon as the Sun sets, beacon of purity and personal love.

Associated with spiritual mastery and the divine flow of creation, Pisces is the muse of great poetry, music, art and literature. In Virgo, the Moon grounds our mystical experience and calls us to a path of spiritual service. In esoteric astrology, Virgo represents the alchemist-goddess, the creatrix who fuses spirit and matter into new, coherent forms through consciousness.

Notice how the light of the Moon infuses the Earth, the waters of the Earth, your being with spiritual, life-giving energy, sustenance for the journey.

The ongoing square between Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn brings continued reconfiguration of our world and our lives in alignment with Spirit.

The conjunction of Neptune, Chiron and Mercury in Aquarius signals the possibility of healing on a collective level.

The Full Moon rises Saturday night. The lunation is exact on Sunday, February 28, at 12:38 PM Eastern. If you're feeling ultra-sensitive, go within. Align with your sacred power through dreams, meditation and prayer. Allow the energy of the cosmos to fuel your creativity. Paint, dance, drum, write, sing. Give voice to your soul.

Pray for the upliftment, the enlightenment of all beings, in these times of the great changes on Earth.

Love Divine

This Saturday's New Moon is a celestial masterpiece. On the eve of Valentine's Day, the planets dance in a celebration of divine love.

Stars blaze in a womb-dark sky as the Sun and Moon meet in late Aquarius, aligning perfectly with distant Chiron and mysterious Neptune. Venus and Jupiter commune in dreamy, spiritual Pisces. Venus, Saturn, Mars and Pluto form not one but two Yods, special planetary configurations pointing the way to our spiritual destiny.

This juicy New Moon alignment energizes our relationship with self and others, connecting us with the broader community of humankind.

Lucky in Love

You couldn't ask for a sweeter Valentine's gift than the conjunction of loving Venus and expansive Jupiter. These two planets are the great benefics of astrology, and their union signals romance, relationship, opportunity and abundance. In Pisces, their connection delivers us into the depths of personal, spiritual love.

Collective Soul

As the Sun and Moon align with the ongoing Chiron-Neptune conjunction, spiritual love fills our world. This is universal love, agape, the love of mystics, sages and avatars.

In Aquarius, Chiron and Neptune heal the collective soul. The Sun and Moon bring personal healing. The essence of love fills our hearts, souls and minds, connecting us with each other, the oneness of humanity, the Earth and all of creation.

The Yods

In Jewish mysticism, the Hebrew letter Yod initiates the creation of manifest form. In astrology, the Yod is the finger or hand of God, and is said to point to our spiritual destiny.

There are two Yods in the heavens at this New Moon. In one, Venus in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, with both planets quincunx to Mars in Leo. In the other, Mars sextiles Saturn in Libra, and both planets are quincunx to Venus. This rarefied double-Yod alignment signals a special opportunity to explore radical, transformational self-love and forgiveness, deeper passion, purpose and heart-centered leadership as paths to fulfilling our destiny as souls on Earth.

New Beginnings

All new moons are about new beginnings. This one is a celebration of relationships, a time to explore the many facets of love. We're planting seeds, individually and collectively, for a more loving, compassionate world as we transition to the Aquarian Age.

The alignment is exact at 8:51 PM Eastern on February 13. In the days and nights leading up to the New Moon, open to a new vision for your life. Initiate a new reality for yourself in alignment with your soul, your purpose and calling.

Experience true intimacy with the divine as expressed through the natural world. Walk quietly in a forest or near the ocean, under the stars. Light a candle and dance with Spirit. Give voice to your creativity. Linger in the embrace of the Beloved.

Bathe in the essence of love through this celestial gateway. Celebrate your deepening relationships with self, family members, community, our brothers and sisters around the world. Commune with the planets and stars, universal love and the flow of creation to experience Heaven on Earth.

Blessed Imbolc

Listen. There's a stirring deep within the Earth, hushed, nearly imperceptible.

From the belly of the Mother, new life pushes forth at the Imbolc cross-quarter gateway. In the depths of the Earth womb, beneath snow and ice, natural cycles of creation are silently at work. New life is gestating. Rebirth is at hand.

The ancient Sabbat of Imbolc marks the seasonal turning point from winter toward spring in the northern hemisphere. The days grow noticeably longer, and signs of spring begin to emerge from the ground. The promise of rebirth and renewal is fulfilled. South of the equator, the Sun's light begins to recede as autumn approaches. This is the Lammas cross-quarter in the southern hemisphere.

February 2 is the traditional date of Imbolc. The festival was Christianized as Candlemas, when the candles to be used in the Catholic Church in the coming year are blessed.

In America, February 2 is Groundhog Day. The groundhog predicts when spring will come as he pokes his head out to see his shadow, or not. This squirrel-like creature burrows deep within the Earth, the realm of shamams and mystics. Deep meditation unlocks secrets of Great Mystery at this special time.

Zodiacal Imbolc falls on February 3 as the Sun crosses 15 degrees Aquarius, the the mid-point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. Imbolc is one of the four “cross-quarters” of the year known as Greater Sabbats because they’re considered to be the most powerful Sun-Earth alignments of the solar year. The better known solstices and equinoxes are the Lesser Sabbats.

“Imbolc” means “in the belly.” In Celtic tradition, this Sabbat is the festival of the Goddess Brighid, who relates to the Corn Maiden in Native American tradition. Both goddess archetypes symbolize the potential of new life within the Earth, within the human female form, and within the feminine aspect of all beings, male and female. Imbolc reminds us of our powers of creation.

Traditionally we celebrate the Sabbats with ritual, consciously creating with intent as we move toward the birthing at the Spring Equinox on March 20. Progress may seem slow on the surface. Trust that new life is sprouting on inner levels, just as the tiny seeds of spring are beginning to germinate deep within the belly of Mother Earth.

The cosmos gives the green light for new projects, travel and adventure when the Sun enters active Aries at the Vernal Equinox on March 20. Hibernation is over. The Sun warms our bodies and kisses the Earth. The sights and sounds and smells of a wondrous creation fill our senses. Spring is life on Earth. A new you blossoms, as a flower opening to the sky.
