After a week like last week, well, do I really need to talk about it? I don’t think so.
In the past, you may remember my talking about an aspect called a “Yod” or “Finger of God.” This month there are four of the aspect patterns overlapping each other. They all involve Saturn and Ceres, along with one other planet or asteroid. These are others are Venus, Mercury, Sun, and Juno.
The skinny on this is that the energy began to affect us on 2/13/2018 and will continue to be an influence through 3/16/2018. This energy will focus on abundance, manifesting, and shadow work. How’s that for balance? Manifesting and abundance balanced with going deep into our psyche and what makes us tick.
Sidebar: I am fortunate to have a friend that is certified in Constellation work. This a healing and discovery modality originating in Germany with a man named Bert Hellinger. My friend facilitated a Family Constellation with me last Friday and I have to tell you, the light shined bright on some of my shadows. It will take a while to process it all but I feel lighter now and have more insight into my family dynamic.
A Yod is formed when two planets form a sextile (60°) and a third planet is inconjunct those two planets (150°). All three planets form pattern the looks like a tall, pointy hat. In all of these Yod’s the focal point or the planet that is 150° from the other two, is Ceres. Ceres represents abundance; specifically in relationship to food, nurturing, the mother, and our family relationships.
One of the two sextile points in all four Yod’s is Saturn. This is about structure, hard work, a planning. Between the energy of Ceres and Saturn, we could find over the next month an increased ability to use the Law of Attraction to assist us with prosperity.
The third point in the Yod’s changes. First up is Venus. This Yod is dealing with relationships. Its influence began on 2/17 and will end on 2/20.
The next Yod had Mercury taking the third position. Mercury is all about communication and short trips. This will be communicating of teaching us more about attracting what we want and perhaps shadow work also. This energy begins on the 19th and ends on the 22nd.
The third Yod has the Sun as the third point. The Sun is always about us and how we identify with others. In this case, we will be looking at how we view ourselves as abundant individuals and how easy it is for us to grasp. Most of us have a mindset of lack and poverty that we came into this life with. We need to change this to prosperity mindset. So as difficult as doing this shadow work can be, it will be a good thing for the long term.
The last Yod will bring in Juno. This is all about love and marriage. The message here is commitment. Sounds like Venus doesn’t it? The difference is the seriousness of commitment.
Now for the days of the week.
Today, Sunday, February 18, 2018, the Sun moves into Pisces. This is an energy of unselfishness, dreams, wisdom, fantasy, with a shadow side of addiction, victimization, and self-pity. Perhaps the best use of this transit is being creative. I will have no problem with this one. I have lots of creative project in mind.
Mercury is also in Pisces. He will transit this sign until March 6th. Expect more creative communications, thinking, and expression of those thoughts.
Mars has about a month left Sagittarius before he moves into Capricorn. Until then, anything routine might cause some restlessness. We tend to want more fun things to do. Those with strong Sagittarius energy in our charts might notice that we give up on our projects long before we finish them.
Monday, Venus is semi-square Uranus. We are drawn to the unusual today. This goes for both people and things but we aren’t too attached. Uranus does like his freedom. Relationships could suffer from the rebellious and restless influence of Uranus.
Tuesday Mercury is semi-square Pluto. This is an aspect of suspicions. Instead of giving into that aspect of our thinking, use this energy to get to the root of something that has been on the mind. This could also cause some stress so do your best to avoid it. We have all heard how stress is not good for our health. The problem is, we often don’t heed those words until it too late and we have a real problem.
Wednesday, Venus joins up with Neptune in a conjunct aspect. This energy is seductive and easily swayed by seductive influences. There is also a strong creative energy to this aspect as well as romance and social events.
Friday Mercury is semi-square Uranus. This could cause us to be a bit scatter-brained. Uranus likes to move and change fast. Our conversations might not be well received because what we have to say is not considered all that important to those we are talking too. Some of us will be prone to increased sarcasm.
Friday also brings us Sun semi-square Pluto. This is manipulative energy. Not my favorite but on the other hand, I think we can all be manipulative at times. The best characteristic of this aspect is if we are backed into a corner, it pushes us to go deep inside and find resources we didn’t know we had.
As you have read, this week will probably be stressful for many. I have been trying to lessen my stress levels by staying away from social media and the news even more than I have in the last 6-8 months. Yesterday I discovered the downside to this. I totally missed an online event I was anxiously waiting to attend.
There are several possibilities for what happened and I am not sure which one to blame. It really doesn’t matter anyway. The universe obviously had other plans for me and I was not supposed to participate. However, this is a red flag for me and lets me know I need to pay more attention if I don’t want to miss things in future.
I hope your week brings you nothing but the best possible energy for you. Remember to be kind to all you meet. This is hard sometimes but do your best. You will be glad you did.
