February-in-waiting: the dance of the sun and Mercury retrograde and the debt ceiling delay

Update: It looks like the debt ceiling has been suspended until the Ides of March. I’m making slight changes to the post to account for how the transits this month could play into what us happening behind the scenes, since the can has been kicked down the road, yet again.

Business Insider reports:

House Republicans will hold a special meeting Monday night [February 10th] to determine their path forward on the debt ceiling, and it’ll be crucial for a deal before the Feb. 27 deadline.

The next morning, Tuesday, February 7th, the sun squares Saturn at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio @ 9am. Boehner announces he’s ready to go along with a suspension deal with no policy strings attached.

Let’s look at some important landmarks this month (full January-April aspect list here).

Friday February 14th features a full moon at 26 Leo/Aquarius. Then, the next day, on Saturday, the sun will be conjunct Mercury at 12:21pm–which are the same numbers – 12 degrees 21 minutes – as the inferior conjunction of the sun and Venus on January 11th. For those who have been watching, that was the beginning of the intermediate age which will usher in the age of Aquarius. For those who have eyes to see, the changes are already underway and accelerating at a dizzying pace.

Remember, Mercury is in retrograde, which is what “enables” it to meet the sun again, this time in Aquarius. Mercury and the sun were last “even” back at the end of December in Capricorn. Mercury entered Capricorn on December 24th, three days after the winter solstice. Since meeting the sun on the 28th, Mercury has been making its way ahead of the sun through Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, until it went retrograde the day before the Olympics at 1:44p.m at 3 Pisces. Mercury’s current retrograde brings it back through Aquarius until it meets the sun on the full moon / Valentine’s Day at 27 Aquarius.)

At the same time as the sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on Saturday, a 62-hour maintenance shutdown of a Social Security Administration computer system will commence, according to Yahoo news:

The Social Security computer system will be down from 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) on Saturday until 5 a.m. EST (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, February 18, CMS said.

Interestingly, the 18th features an important astrological landmark as well, even though it refers not to any celestial body’s position but rather to a mathematical calculation important to upcoming eclipses. On the morning of the 18th, the lunar node enters Libra–a cardinal sign, setting eclipse themes to Libra/Aries and away from Taurus/Scoprio (sigh of relief). On a macro scale this involves struggles and resolutions relating to the I-You binary/trajectory. In a transcendant sense, the eclipses bring our original soul being closer to a harmonization of the needs of the ego and the soul for freedom and peace.

Yet even more compelling perhaps is the Mercury-Saturn square on the 18th at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio, at 11:11pm on Tuesday night (PST). The Aquarius-Scorpio square was featured in the Sun/Saturn square which opened this post, framing the meeting tonight (Feb 10th). Sparks fly (in a dicey way) between Mercury’s love of speed and efficiency, and Saturn’s clamping down and closing doors.

A week later, with two days remaining before the “debt ceiling deadline” on the 27th, Jupiter squares Uranus at 10 degrees 33 minutes Aries / Cancer. This Jupiter-Uranus square is part of a sequence of the heavenly arrangement of a grand cardinal cross between Jupiter, Uranus, Mars and Pluto which will become exact at 13 degrees on April 22, 2014:

There are a few important things to note about this step towards the April square. The Jupiter-Uranus element of the square involves volatility and bubbles. At ten degrees, it heralds back to the first few weeks of January centering around 1/11 when those with eyes to see saw headlines which signaled a game-change. The last week of February will present itself as yet another chapter in an epic story going much further back than we knew, and reaching to futures even more far off than we imagined. This will accelerate even more when this square reaches 13 degrees and reveals itself even to the blind.

Finally, the day after the debt ceiling, Mercury again goes direct on the 28th at 18 degrees Aquarius. On March 1st, Mars goes into retrograde, starting the countdown to the April square, which will lock into place when Mars reaches 13 degrees Libra.

With the eclipses kicking off on April 15th and the square locking into place on April 22nd, all sides will be emboldened. What happens in this time should give those with eyes to see a very good sense for what is in store in the two-year eclipse period leading up to the jubilee year of 5777 and fireworks of 2017.

G-d bless!

New moon Aquarius / Rosh Chodesh Adar Alef (the 13th month) / Venus goes direct @ 13 Capricorn

Image

1/30 New moon @ 10 Aquarius – the new crescent will mark the new month of Adar I, the 13th month inserted into the calendar to align the solar and lunar cycles.

1/31 Jupiter (Cancer) square Pluto (Capricorn) at 12 degrees – a landmark towards the exact cross in April. Jupiter goes direct again on Mar 6 which allows for another exact square. Venus is close by at 13 Capricorn, where the exact cardinal cross will take place in April.

Venus Direct Yet Venus retrorgrade does not take Venus to 12 Capricorn where the Jupiter-Pluto square is taking place. Rather, 12 hours after the Jupiter-Pluto square, Venus goes direct again at 13*34′ Capricorn and begins moving ahead through the sign, moving towards the sun, trailing as the morning star, and retracing the route it has been on since late December.

Sun quincunx Jupiter 12 Aquarius/Cancer – the Jupiter-Pluto square is compounded by another uneasy aspect at the 12th degree, bridging fixed air and cardinal water.

Also on the 31st, Mercury the messenger enters Pisces the subconscious.

Jesus Statue In Rio De Janeiro Struck By Lightning, Christ The Redeemer Loses Finger – Yod / Finger of God at Aquarian Mercury on 1/19 Sunday Night

On January 19th at 8pm pst, the Sun enters Aquarius, the sign of man, messianic era, corresponding to Shevat and the face of Man on the chariot (merkabah). This sign can go either way; man can ‘fly too close to the sun’ like Icarus and fall due to hubris, falsely crossing the boundary of spirit and flesh, or man can be resurrected from temporal physicality and access the higher dimensions of messianic consciousness and transcend the boundaries of time and space like Rabbi Akiva did when he entered the Pardes and left in peace. This trajectory played out in the dynamics of comet ISON (I-Sun/Son) and we are still watching to see how the story ends.

An hour after the sun enters Aquarius, as the moon rises in Virgo, (Israel/woman of the apocalypse) near Regulus (king star), there will be a brief “Yod” / Finger of Destiny (green dotted lines in the chart below), pointing at Mercury in Aquarius in the 5th house (the ‘seeding’ messianic consciousness), as the rising moon in Virgo (illuminated female receptacle) sextiles with Jupiter/Sirius in Cancer (our cosmic cousins, at the gate of Man).

On Thursday night the “Finger of God” fell to earth after lightning struck the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio. On Thursday the fifth portion of Yitro is read, which includes the verses: “I am God your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, from the place of slavery. Do not have any other gods before Me. Do not represent [such] gods by any carved statue or picture of anything in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land.” (Exodus 20:2-4)

The Yod on Sunday night, first reading of Parshas Misphatim, the gateway to the most esoteric part of the Zohar, in light of the alignment on Rosh Hashana 2017 (5778):

On 9/20/17 Rosh Hashanah 5778 Virgo is clothed with the Sun, the Moon is in close conjunction with the sun, and there is an alignment of Jupiter, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Regulus, with Venus in conjunction with Regulus.

We watch the heavens to live in the present, in the light of the future, which the righteous live in, past, present and future.

‘Thus hath R. Johanan said: in the generation when the son of David [i.e., Mashiach] will come, scholars will be few in number, and as for the rest, their eyes will fail through sorrow and grief. Multitudes of trouble and evil decrees will be promulgated anew, each new evil coming with haste before the other has ended.’ (Sanhedrin 97a)

The seven year cycle:

Our Rabbis taught: in the seven year cycle at the end of which the son of David will come-in the first year, this verse will be fulfilled: And I will cause it to rain upon one city and cause it not to rain upon another city; in the second, the arrows of hunger will be sent forth; in the third, a great famine, in the course of which men, women, and children, pious men and saints will die, and the Torah will be forgotten by its students; in the fourth, partial plenty; in the fifth, great plenty, when men will eat, drink and rejoice, and the Torah will return to its disciples; in the sixth, [Heavenly] sounds; in the seventh, wars; and at the conclusion of the septennate the son of David will come (the first year of the next Shmita cycle). R. Joseph demurred: But so many septennates have passed, yet has he not come! — Abaye retorted: Were there then [Heavenly] sounds in the sixth and wars in the seventh! Moreover, have they [sc. the troubles] been in this order!

The fiftieth year – Yovel:

Yovel carries three meanings – “Ram’s horn“, “Jubilee” and “to be carried”. The time will come when we will be “yoveled”, carried off, to our eternal resting place; to HaShem.

8/20: August full moon ~ Basking in the rays of the era of Luna and Aquarius

Image

Full moon chart features:
* Sun & mercury in LEO opposite moon in AQUARIUS & nearby neptune in pisces…

*Grand cardinal cross: pluto in capricorn x jupiter in cancer, uranus in aries x newcomer venus in LIBRA

*Grand water trine: saturn & node in scorpio – jupiter in cancer – neptune, chiron in pisces

Grand cardinal cross sets up the stage for a major shift as a result of no other choice ~ the new venus in libra suggests this is about rising to a higher equilibrium

Water trine continues to bring prophecy in through the soul’s portals from distant worlds to lubricate the shift…

Aquarius-leo / solar-lunar opposition catapults us from nostalgia of lost golden ages and the sunburn of matrix rule to bask in the cumulative rays of light shining forth from the new era led by Luna and Aquarius ~ well aspected Pluto in Capricorn suggests systemic change and developments on the global scale as well..

The shift ushered in by the full moon carries through the week and builds towards the grand sextile + grand cross formation on Sunday

This energy is high-powered.. not much left to do now.. the work to receive this energy has been happening all along.. BELIEVE

The Swan, Self-Realization and the Illumination of Subtle Knowledge: Aquarius Full Moon 8/20

cygnus constellation

Saturday night Capricorn moon growing towards a full moon on Tuesday at 6:45pm PST at 28 Aquarius in the constellation Cygnus – the Swan

This is the second consecutive full moon in Aquarius. These full moons bring new illumination to the worlds of hidden knowledge that have been with humanity for eons and are now arising in our consciousness through subtle awareness. This hidden knowledge includes information about our sun’s binary star, our own solar system’s relationship with other heavenly bodies, our true reference point, our real origin and destiny. We are approaching the culmination of grand cycles and our knowledge base is being upgraded to consciously experience what is happening. Consciousness is a part of the shift, we are the center of this shift, our own self-realization is the self-realization of the cosmos.

Self-realization on the cosmic scale necessitates fluidity of form. This is the modality of the swan (from Your Lost Zodiac Sign): “Passive and contemplative, you can play any role the world imposes on you, but anyone who thinks that they can pin you down is doomed to fail. The swan is a symbol of personal growth and transformation and it is through playing many roles that you discover your real self and come into your own.”
