ALACAZEM: 2012.02.23

February 23 to March 1, 2012

Visible Planets: Morning: Mars and Saturn  Evening: Venus and Jupiter

The New Moon of February 21st took place just days after the Sun moved into Pisces, and gently gave birth to one of the most fertile and poignant lunar cycles of the tropical year. Packed with the subtle but awesome power of surrender, the magic of paradox and the strength of humility, the mystical, amniotic waters of the twelfth sign prepare us for the radical birth of Aries and the primal thrust of spring, when new life struggles for survival. It is here, in Pisces, that we are encouraged to journey inward and conjoin with spirit, let go, relax and regenerate. The infinite dimensions of our ever-expanding Universe come together in a unified matrix of unlimited possibility and potential. We discover the bridge that joins the alpha and the Omega, boundaries disappear and we experience the glistening bond between ends and new beginnings.

All cultures and religions have attempted to grasp what lies beyond our physical, material world. Our five senses perceive only a tiny fraction of the fluctuating, multi-dimensional cosmos. And reality – if one can even use this word at all – is relative to individual and collective perception and definition. The electromagnetic spectrum that surrounds us is 97% invisible to human eyes and instruments. And yet, energy is everywhere and all-pervasive, eternally present, ineffably creative, radically destructive and ultimately divine. This is the realm of the metaphysical, where the limits of language and linear thought dissolve. We venture past the borders of concepts and convictions to a land of inter-connectedness. Planets, people, animals, plants, oceans, emotions, thoughts, ideas, words and deeds are all inter-related and intertwined. It is here we dance the cosmic dance of oneness, dancing with steps of compassion, loving-kindness, forgiveness and acceptance. Life and death merge, the Great Mystery reigns supreme and we know deep within our hearts and souls that we are not alone on this Earth, galaxy or universe, on this block or in the neighborhood. Doors of perception fly open. Dreamtime, angelic realms, deep meditative states, music and muses, imagination and intuition converge. We are One.

Dive deep, swim the depths, relax in the current and go with the flow…

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19)
The awareness of polarities is a theme as mental Mercury opposes willful Mars in critical Virgo. It’s amazing how each of us sees and interprets life and its circumstances differently. Bless the uniqueness rather than cursing it. Recognize that it’s a waste of time trying to change other’s opinions and focus on personal truth and impeccability. Honesty pays.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The Sun in Pisces makes favorable aspects to both Jupiter and Pluto this week, paving the way with gold when it comes to personal health and wealth. Compassion and forgiveness are allies here. Recognizing the value of inner peace and doing whatever it takes to maintain it is the key to happiness and success. Spring is coming soon, rejoice and enjoy.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Imagination, intuition and illusion are heightened as the Sun makes its way through the first week of Pisces. Doors of perception open wide, facilitating access to deep meditation, dreamtime, the angelic realms and universal consciousness. Muses are abundant and it’s a fabulous time to be a conduit of creation. Take pause, breathe deep, let go and let it flow.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Sun’s exact conjunction to wounded-healer Chiron offers a golden opportunity for resolving long-standing issues of emotional suffering and physical pain. All healing involves acceptance and forgiveness, for ourselves and others, and ultimately gratitude. The toughest lessons are the most powerful, and the ones we need to learn the most. Surrender.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
People and cultures that emphasize logic over intuition and material proof over spiritual truth have the most difficult challenges in times of pain and stress. When we don’t respect the mysterious, ineffable and uncontrollable forces of our Universe, we fall prey to addictions and obsessions. Embrace the metaphysical magic of divinity and go forth.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
The sensitive, intuitive Pisces Sun sextiles both magnanimous Jupiter and obsessive Pluto this week, expanding the capacity to see the bigger picture and deeply intuit the meanings and magic behind the metaphysical mysteries of soul and spirit. Surrender to the universal flow and discover the divine within. Have no fear; you are here with the angels.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)
All religions and cultures have sought to grasp what lies beyond the physical. Accepting the fact that some things are beyond the beyond, mysterious and metaphysical is the first step toward spiritual enlightenment. The journey of transcendence and transformation involves letting go of the illusion of security and stepping into the unknown.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces represents both returning to the Source and the One from which all is born. In the completion of the seasonal wheel, you may feel the deep heart of God, the Great Spirit, the Tao, the angels coursing through your own heart and soul. Surrender to the divine within and without as you walk in beauty and emerge reborn.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Pisces, the 12th and final sign, includes infinite dimensions of reality and ever-changing expressions of creation. Our five senses perceive a tiny fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum, leaving the rest to intuition and heart. The vast, ever-expanding cosmos is alive within and outside us, continually affecting our evolutionary path. Surrender to the Spirit.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Pisces sees the world through the eyes of compassion and unconditional love, surrenders to spirit, forgives others and accepts what comes – far from the Capricorn mindset of hard work, self-discipline and control. However, the sextile aspect of this all-encompassing sign to yours makes it easier now to go with the flow and be in synch with the Universe. Yes!

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)
The magic of metaphysical worlds opens to you as the Sun moves through Pisces, revealing the mysteries beyond the limits of language and linear thought. As you venture past the borders of concepts and convictions, embrace intuition over logic and the spiritual rather than the material. Subtle, primordial energies abound, enjoy the cosmic journey!

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)
As the first full week of your birthday month evolves, you may find yourself lighting candles, cutting cakes and opening presents. Invitations to cosmic parties abound as well. Open your heart to the love, kindness and compassion of your Piscean soul and feel the grandness and gratitude of being you. Humility is your ally and laughter is your friend.
