Taking the leap… that is what we are brought to on the edge of a precipice.
The question is, “What is it you are leaping into?”
Usually, these kind of life situations bring up much anxiety because ‘leaping’ is so very far from steady conventional steps along solid ground. The “leap’ takes one into the unknown without ground. Exciting, to be sure, and calling upon a deep sense of self in order to jump.
There may be a tendency to want everyone watch as you do a cannonball off the high diving board today. Also, overly emotional expressions of potential loss can colour your form.
It is a new Moon start for the new cycle. Taking a leap to begin will tend to work out well."
Cancer 24, "A woman and two men on a sunlit piece of land facing south"
The Sabian symbols are like portals of magic and sense you always felt were there, but only ever occasionally stumbled through.
Cancer 24: Imagine gazing into a fire when a door opens and a woman and two men are standing there. One man is a poet by the look of him, the shining light of Venus washes his demeanour in song serene. The other is a warrior intent on love and the starry light of strategy follows his quest.
The woman loves both and as she looks upon her lovers under the full light of the summer Sun, she steps back, withdrawing rather than having to choose.

Today, contemplation comes as if imposed because of being delayed, hung-up or stalled.
A choice weighs heavily. It may even feel like an impossible choice. Some may benefit from sleeping on it… literally taking a nap. What is being considered is likely to be against the grain of consensus opinion, and therefore, one may choose to withdraw.
If the day feels twisted and uncomfortable, allow it to be what it is. Tomorrow is the day to make a choice, to take a stand free from attachment to the results.
The Sun's entry into Pisces is noteworthy because Neptune, the ruler of the sign of Pisces, is transiting in Pisces as well. Only every 160 years (approximately) does Neptune traverse Piscean waters. Arguably the most significant transit of our times, it is recommended that readers check out my E-book addressing Neptune's Journey through each degree of Pisces.
Sun enters Pisces, February 18
Saturn stationary retrograde, February 18
Jupiter moves into 8 Gemini, February 19
Sun conjunct Neptune, February 20
Mercury stationary retrograde, February 23
Monday, February 18: Sun enters Pisces. "A public market": imagine a huge wave of collective consciousness, in all its overwhelming and confusing wonder, to be washing over the world. Maintaining a sense of individuality may be difficult. Emotions can be deep. Watch for the urge to just go on strike.
Tuesday, February 19: "A squirrel hiding from hunters" Be quick. Be a moving target, and make your own target a higher standard for being present authentically.
Wednesday, February 20: "A petrified forest" Sun conjunct Neptune… inspiration, move me brightly. Be alert for calming influences regarding emotions and passions. Free from emotional turmoil and entanglements, one can begin again with confidence fed by what has been learned from experience.
Thursday, February 21: "Heavy traffic on a narrow isthmus" Inspiration continues to flow. Watch for those who choose the path less traveled, and those who line up with the crowd.
Friday, February 22: "A church bazaar" Potential developments at the Vatican. Decisions can be made that determine the way forward for a long time.
Saturday, February 23: "Officers on dress parade" Mercury retrograde lasts until March 17. Check your information and messages twice, three times. Books are not written. They are re-written, and then re-written again. Strangely positive day for blending in with convention yet being just as individualistic and eccentric as a chicken in a fox farm.
Sunday, February 24: "A cross lying on the rocks" The rugged path, unmarked and true to one's character. Potentially a great day for extraordinary experiences. Listen for divine messages. The Moon is near full. Lush day to follow.
Neptune Journey Through Pisces… E-book available with tons of information for understanding our times!
What we trade upon, as human beings, if often ever so small. The social pettinesses, commercial wheelings and dealings, not to mention political poop.
If you have noticed recently how a cosmic jet stream has been so very near to our world, you may do well to consider the peculiar anomalies in experience to be a doorbell ringing from ambassadors of a far off place.
Rich emotions, deep needs may fuel the need to go on strike in some arena of life.
In the public market place, individuality is subsumed by a huge collective wave.
When overwhelmed, ask for help, for help is nearby.
Head down, gazing at the flames, adding fuel when needed, shifting a log and so on. While absorbed with the task at hand, an idea, a message, a thought dawns as if out of nowhere.
This describes the day, a time when one can be released from concerns and cares that have demanded attention. The message bearer and the message would tend to come from out of the blue… that is, it is an unexpected message.
Excellent day to take care of matters at hand with attentive patience. It is not important that a multitude of things get done. One per day is enough. Within that open and receptive caring mind, a message will come.
Fighting a forest fire involves strategic approaches such as creating a firebreak through deliberate lighting of back burns… smaller fires set that burn toward the main fire in order to starve the main fire of fuel, thus contain its range.
It is an example of fighting fire with fire… starve the fire of an essential element, fuel or oxygen, to quench its thirst. An odd mixture of metaphors, yet an effective if paradoxical way to contain a challenging situation.
Today, if a challenge arises, consider employing a 'surround and contain' strategy.
One does not rush headlong into the fire, but stands off the perimeter while the fire quenches itself within containment.
A watchdog watches over values and valuables, protecting standards, degrees of rectitude and so on.
Think of a quality control supervisor. Today, watch for how the standards of excellent, or lack thereof, manifests in experience. One may well be gathering others who accord with your sense of quality.
Also, one may feel underwhelmed by the prevailing status quo.
The curious thing about the day is that magic can happen, can be directed effectively. Curious because social interactions may distract such that confusion reigns or frustrations dull sensibilities that could otherwise be very creative.
