February 3 - 9
The Existential Question
The Year of the Wood Horse began with a drum roll. Just hours before Sun and Moon lined up, a large Solar eruption showered Earth with intense energy. Avid readers might remember, two large Solar flares fired 2014 up. Such powerful cosmic events herald outstanding years.
On February 6, Mercury begins its three-week retreat. As was the case last year, Mercury will be in water signs when moving backwards. However, there's one very important difference to its 2013 retreats. Back then Mercury stayed in water signs for the entire reverse period. This year, Mercury will come to a standstill in the early degrees of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. And then it will cross back into the air signs prior, where it eventually will resume to forward motion.
The good thing is, by February 13, the winged messenger is back in Aquarius. On February 15, when exactly between Sun and Earth a new synodic cycle will start. And by February 28, Mercury will conclude its retreat.
The coming six months offer unprecedented opportunities, a very rare window for change is opening up. Indeed, it would be very sad if we would miss. Many favorable celestial influences are teaming up. generating great synergies, likewise pulling us through a keyhole.
The potential for fundamental shifts setting out is substantial. However, changes won't come along smoothly or cheaply. First, we have to accept sobering assessments. We have to open our ears to the truth, literally allowing being kicked in our ass. As ONE humanity we have to wake up from sweet and toxic denial. These are exceptional times of unprecedented magnitude. There's nothing to lose, and everything to be won.
As the true magnitude of Earth's condition is coming to light many more whistleblowers will be emerging from the woodworks. Realizing the gravity of our situation, an increasing number of insiders will find their way back to integrity. After all, when looking into the devil's eye, fear evaporates. When the question of life and death becomes an existential reality, courage flares up. All of a sudden innocent servants of the devil will dare to speak up.
There's no set final outcome. It all will depend on how deeply we love life - the one and only maxim that counts. Time will tell whether we had the guts to change the course of history.
