Your Zodiac Oracle 
   Feb.-March 2008

Prelude: The Chinese Year of the Rat, which begins on Feb.8th, the day after a Solar Eclipse at the 18th degree of Aquarius, is supposedly a year of great abundance and prosperity, particularly if you have Chinese genetics! For westerners, what we have is Pluto inching its way into Capricorn, joined by Venus and Jupiter. My financial advisers suggest that the Chinese (& Indians who now drive a Nano) will begin to bet on gold ETF  funds, against which the fading American dollar will continue to fall. So for Valentine's day this year, may I suggest a retro roaring 20s style party, a carnival of magnificent costumes, with a tarot reader running a currency exchange booth in the corner of the room.Just for fun, have a look at the new Bush Amero!

Portals: That new moon in Aquarius is close enough to the planet Neptune, to suggest that Feb. 10th, when
Sun conjuncts Neptune, will be a significant & somewhat confusing day on Planet Earth. Yes both poles of Gaia are melting fast, polar bears & penguins are discovering the island lifestyle, the Gulf current may be unreliable this year & the Pacific Ring of Fire is about to erupt in a noteworthy way. If you are a meditator, a co-creator of the New Earth, you may be called to broadcast a beam of stabilizing energy to the west coast of North & South America. Mercury goes direct on Feb.19th, just as the Sun snorkels into Pisces. Mars returns to nurturing Cancer on March 4th. The spring equinox, Mar.20th, leaps out at us like a giant solar flare, with Sun squaring Pluto!

  

Zodiac Oracles for Feb.-Mar.
 (Valentine's edition)
Aries: Yes, those planets in Capricorn are the Universe's nudge for you to throw off apathy & get back on track. So put on some silver or gold , add a dash of cinnamon or jitterbug perfume & go forth boldly into the not so neutral zone...
 
Taurus:  I have created an aromatherapy blend specific to your hormonal agenda, whether you are male or female, no worries, with Jupiter & Saturn now in your fellow earth signs, the blend called Dendara will work, as it says on the bottle, like a night of trance dance for the shaman within..
 
Gemini: You may have had a little run in recently  with someone who was unable to perceive the goodwill & transpersonal love that motivated you to say the shocking things that escaped from you, in your pundit way. Your remedy is a blend of geranium, juniper & helichrysum. For calming your nerves....
Cancer:   No, we cannot offer you the genie or the jinn in a bottle. Nor can we provide room service, a maid, kitchen help or a carpenter. What you may receive for VDay, if you approve, is a bottle of Astral Heaven, to alchemize some long overdue lucid dreaming...

Leo:  It was in the news for all to see. Caged tygers & lions, leopards & pumas, even psychic domesticated house cats are getting ready to break out of whatever has them tethered & pacing about. Take a glance into the looking glass & have a chat with that Jaguar, already!

  Virgo:  You must be getting used to all those requests for help & astonishing favours the neighbours are asking of you now that Saturn has taken residence in your humble abode. Yes, you are an oracle at heart, with practical hands & a mind that can multi-task if need be. We suggest you just put on some Egyptian jasmine & rose & dance with the jackels for a night...

 

Libra:  Now if Jalaludin Rumi were your spirit guide, & you had just lost someone you adored to another lover, or the next world, what would the One known as Mevlana whisper in your ear?? Well, whatever music you hear, or the Vortex beyond words that opens your heart to the Friend (or the void)...listen up & smell the magnolia for a moment...

Scorpio: When the Nose is out sniffing a mystery, solving a crime, getting to the source of gossip, or taking down evidence of some alien invasion of privacy, you, Scorpio, sprout a double who wears white, emanates a light blue auric shield & speaks what the soul needs to hear...So to banish ancient ghosts or karmic fear, try a drop of  sage or aloeswood... 

 Sagittarius: Yes, your bodyguard Jupiter & your lawyer Pluto have taken on new assignments & you are left to fend for yourself for awhile. You have a habit of thinking big, taking a gamble on the roll of the dice & speaking whatever springs to mind. We suggest for your sense of balance a meditation on glacial creek water & the fragrance of frankincense...

Capricorn: Who is visiting you, amigo?? From what galaxy have they come & why, pray tell, are they professing love to a randy old real estate agent like you?? Well, it is probably your earthy phermones that are attracting all those clients & courtesans... Not to worry, a drop or two of  vetiver will make it cool & kosher  for all who are entangled with you!! ..   

Aquarius:  When the Sun transits your sign from Jan.20th to Feb.19th, it is usually time for a carnival in Brazil, a respite from Winter in the Northeast, & a chance for you to do a little energy choreography, soul reconnaissance, personal feng shui & karmic bookkeeping. Feb. 10th is the day to celebrate your Great Re-arranging..    

Pisces:  Well, the Sun conjuncts Uranus on March 8th. This should turn everything upside down again, but this time your astrologer has you forewarned & prepared. When you can't go forward & you won't go back, what can you do but the old Piscean disappearing act. Ok, we give you Houdini as a spirit guide, the Great Mystery as an elixir & the fragrance of rosemary so you can remember your Dreaming...
