Celestial Compass for February 18-24, 2019
(formally at ShirleyMacLaine.com)

What is Seen and Unseen are Counterparts of the Whole of Your Soul
Divinity and Service through Pisces and Virgo

We’re now into Pisces, the final of the twelve zodiacal signs that is rich in esoteric knowledge and wisdom. It’s further intensified by the Full Moon in Virgo that’s also the first of three Super Moons in 2019, and Mercury aligns with the Pisces planet ruler, Neptune that opens doors to other realms. Intensified awareness and emotional well-being are the celestial currents that impact you with a strong impulse to seek what provides wholeness and fortitude. The energy resonates very personally reminding you to take care of yourself and align with priorities that include you as worthy. The axis of Pisces-Virgo, opposite signs, are about service and sacrifice reflected through professions as teaching, nursing, factory work, wherever groups work in unison that is Virgo, and giving through compassion as shown through Christ consciousness that is Pisces energy.

This week Venus impacts many very personally due to its conjunction to both Saturn and Pluto in the earth sign Capricorn. It’s a time of revelations about choices in your life relating to what you desire and where you’ve built your lifestyle relating to comfort and fulfillment. You see strengths and also weaknesses as you evaluate and assess where you are now and what you want to do going forward.

The Sun enters Pisces at 6:05 PM for its month long transit until March 20. As the last of the 12 signs it’s bringing everything from the last year into focus and concluding the zodiacal year, after which the Sun will move into Aries and be the astrological New Year. You’re reminded of your spirit journey and how you’ve managed since March of 2018, and so, this is an introspective cycle to review and seek solace from higher sources. Angelic realms and higher dimensions open. Mundanely you may become aware of certain shortcomings, either your own and/or others that may need healing or addressing in some way relating to boundaries. 

Pleasant energy beams from the Moon trine Jupiter at 7:00 PM. This is easygoing and expanding for the good and it benefits whatever you need and want to do. It’s an all-systems-go vibration toward achievement.

​In Review (Looking Back)

February 11-17, 2018

Taurus Rules the Day and a Little Bit More
Love and Desire are in the Air – 
Will you bask or will you think in terms of lack?

It’s expected that there’s an overshadowing of all things love related because of St Valentine’s Day on February 14 though there’s so much more due to strong Taurus influence all week. On Tuesday is the First Quarter Moon in Taurus followed on St Valentine’s Day with Mars moving into Taurus. Just before that shift on Wednesday, Mars and Uranus conjunct in the last degree of Aries that makes critical intensity for matters of desire and urges to seek fulfillment. Taurus is about gratification and is ruled by the planet love, Venus. Other than love related, current celestial energy prompts you to want to feel complete and have a sense of security. Whatever you desire and want in the way of fulfillment is on the table for consideration as it pulls you toward it like a magnet.

Mars and Uranus in Taurus activate more than love and desire, it can be riveting for interest in money and all matters relating to having what you want.

Key words for the week:

Serve; caring; release; fulfill; passion; blessing

The great teacher Alice Bailey said:
“The fluid, sensitive, temperament in Pisces – mediumistic and psychically polarized – must be stabilized in Virgo, in which sign mental introspection and critical analysis become possible and serve to arrest the fluidity of Pisces. These two signs balance each other.”

Affirmation for the week:

“My soul shines through into my everyday life to manifest my highest purpose.”

In Truth,
Sandra

Next Week:

Venus moves into Aquarius and the Moon occults Saturn and Pluto.
