“For Mercy has a human heart;
Pity, a human face;
And Love, the human form divine:
And Peace the human dress."
--William Blake, Songs of Innocence
The report is written this week :) Feeling a bit under the weather. But I do want to tell you about a few things!
The big events are:
-Venus moves into Pisces Sat Feb 10
-Sun squares Jupiter Sat Feb 10
-Mercury squares Jupiter as well, Feb 13
-Sun sextile Uranus Feb 13th
-Solar Eclispe (New Moon) in Aquarius at 27 degrees Thurs Feb 15th
I mean...the big BIG event is of course the Eclispe. When we have an eclipse week, these events of shadow and revelation steal the show.
The Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids! Pow! A door opens, and things come in, and they go out. The events that happen are "permanent" (in quotes because nothing is permanent ulimately, right?). They will not be able to be put back the way they were. Things shift in a way that causes us to move forward. Through the door we go. The eclipse moment is liminal space; we get an opportunity to shape shift into our next phase of development.
This eclipse is in Aquarius, which is visionary and future minded. What do we wish to dream up? What is our relationship to community? Are the communities we are currently involved with helpful to our overall growth?
Not everyone is psyched about "community". Many of us have had difficult experiences in groups of people, and some of us are simply more introverted. All eclipses reveal something that has been hidden in shadow; this can be a time when wounds around group involvment come out to be healed. We reevaluate the community activies we're involved in--we could take steps to become more or less involved. Eclipses can precipitate a crisis of some kind; the house in which the Solar Eclipse occurs in your personal chart can tell you which area of life these themes will play out in.
Perhaps in the past we've had a vision for something that disappointingly did not come to fruition. The eclipse can help open up a different way to look at things, and a new opportunity to acheive new goals. Aquarius has to do with ones personal uniquness within the context of the collective; we all have a special medicine, or genius (genesis, origin, originating within), that only we can offer. We are human, and we're made out of stardust. We can write a new story in the stars and bring it down to earth through our being.
Venus moves into Pisces, a sign in which She is said to be exalted. This is the Goddess of Love and Beauty at her most refined. This is Aphrodite coming out of the Sea. Venus in Pisces emphasizes the spiritual aspects of sexuality and love. I think of the medieval idea of Courtly Love, a generally unconsumated, longing-based demonstration of love in which a knight carries out services and/or journeys in his Lady's name.
Sun and Mercury both square Jupiter, making things bigger...though it remains to be seen if they are better! The Jupiter in Scorpio theme of expanded consciousness in the darker areas of life will be further activated. We get a general energetic uplift though that will be welcome to most. Our minds need to keep broadening and deepening to see more points of view.
We are prompted to continue to expand our vision and allow for an influx of new ideas as The Sun makes a harmonious aspect to Uranus. I see this as a boost to the potentially liberating energy of the Aquarius eclipse. Let the exciting intuitive downloads and the visions for an amazing furture ahead commence! The sky's the limit!

Saint Francis of Assisi (1182–1226)
The Peace Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in self-forgetting that we find;
And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.

Jupiter moved into Scorpio on Tuesday. The planet of Truth and Vision moves into the sign of sexuality, magick, creation and destruction. Higher consciousness reaches ito the realm of Shadow, and the light comes on.
This placement gives us the impetus to look more deeply, or respect (re= again, spect=look; look again) into the dark.
Jupiter is about exploration and travel, and the Underworld is the terrain. Jupiter is about holiness, and the Scorpio is the burial ground. Jupiter is about opportunity, and Scorpio is about healing the deepest tramuas we've got. Jupiter is about new perspectives, and Scorpio is about intimacy.
Some people may suddenly be experiencing flashbacks of past violations that are held deep within the emotional and mental bodies. Scorpio is a water sign, and it has to do with the impressions that are made by events in our lives. Or in past lives. Or even in the lives of our ancestors. It runs that deep.
The past is as maleable as the future, though we tend not to see it that way. We have the sense that only the future is under our control, and we tend to live there. We also live in the past. But really, how do you know that there is anything but that which is happening right now? Where does the past exsist? Or the future? The only place you can find the past or the future is in the mind. The past changes based on what we believe about it. With Jupiter in Scorpio, new perspectives and information may emerge to change our sense of what happened in the past. The future and the past meet in the present, which is the only true place of power.
Jupiter is about belief, and traveling through Scorpio, he is going to help us get right with beliefs from the past that cause current suffering. Combined with Saturn's current clean-up in Sag, joined by Black Moon Lilith, we are getting the intensive workshop in who-we-are-vs-who-we-believe-that-we-are. It takes a lot of energy to keep believing something that isn't true! Our true nature is dying to come out to be seen in all her/his glory! It'll be a lot less exahusting, even if we lose a few "friends" in the process. We'll probabaly gain better ones anyway.
Remember that Jupiter is about abundance and gifts from the universe, and Scorpio is about orgasm! Sexuality is one of the best vehicles for creating expanded consciousness and well being. This is a of course a very complex topic that is beyond the scope of what I can write about here, involving many psychological, physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cultural dynamics. But that's whats amazing about Scorpio isnt it? Complexity and depth. Scorpio is about the complex connections bewteen the many aspects of ourselves that make up our sexuality. Jupiter in Scorpio is an opportunity to recognize (re= again, cognize= to think about) the distortion of taboo as holy once more.
So...what else is going on this week? Well, thank goodness Venus and Mars are getting out of range from their squares with Saturn. Ugh. That wasn't that cute this past week. We should get a few roadblocks cleared from here. That said, the Lovers are still within range of opposing Chiron, which is also not cute. Let's trot out a few wounds and get this Jupiter in Scorpio party started right!!! Haha! Well, Jupiter in Scorpio is going to bring in some pretty excellent stuff. So dont let this moment fool you into thinking its not going to be "good" as well. We just need to do the work to get the goodies.
Mercury joins Jupiter in Scorpio next Tues, getting us to look even deeper into the dark. And we have a New Moon in Libra to finish up Libra season and set up a new cycle. But we'll talk amore about that in the next report!
Happy Friday the 13th!
