February 2nd in modern secular times we have the mash-up of Candlemas/Imbolc and Groundhog day. I know that the last year feels like the same day on re-re-re-re-peat.
What is Candlemas?
Originally an ancient pagan holiday. At the beginning of February, in honoring of the myth of spring, wherein Pluto stole Proserpine/Persephone, and her mother Ceres/ Demeter sought her in the night with lighted candles. The custom was to walk around the city with lighted candles in honor of the Goddess. Because the Christians could not destroy these ancient customs, they called it Candlemas and made it in honor of the Blessed Virgin.
February also takes its name from Februa meaning “religious purification”, and means “the month of purification”, or “the cleansing month”.
Candlemas is celebrated as the 40th day of Jesus’s birth where he was presented in the Temple in Jerusalem for blessing by the Rabbi.. Mothers stayed in their homes with newborns until the 20th day. Simeon then prophesied to Mary: “Behold, this child is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which is spoken against. Yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed” it is recorded in the Gospels.
In modern archetypes, Groundhog Day has become an icon for the literal theme of the movie about “seeing your shadow” which the groundhog may or may not do on Feb 2. The Movie, starring Bill Murray from 1993 directed and written by Harold Ramis. has the protagonist in a karmic time loop. He woke up every day experiencing the same things over and over and he cannot die.
The message is: WHAT KARMIC LESSONS are you still stuck on and repeating over and over, like Phil Connors in the film?
Think about this during Mercury’s Retrograde in Aquarius,the sign of liberation.
Make this your Groundhog day mantra.
Where am I stuck in my life? What am I resisting?
Why do I keep repeating the same old same old lessons?
a great day for dreaming tonight under a Lunar Neptune trine.
My dreams have been very intense the last few days. How about you?
tHE jANUARY 28 LEO FULL MOON IS THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR
AND A VERY POWERFUL SUPER LOVE AND WEALTH ASPECT OF VENUS AND PLUTO CONJUNCTION
I AM GOING TO DO A LIVE ZOOM WORKSHOP ON JANUARY 27 AT 5:00 PM PST/8;00 PM EST/ JANUARY 28 @ 1:00 AM
SO MUCH POWER COURAGE DARING, STAR POWER RELEASING YOUR OLD FEARS AND EMPOWERMENT.
THERE WILL BE Q & A SO YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW THE LEO MOON AND THE AQUARIUS SUN WITH JUPITER CONJUNCTING IT- THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR. TAURUS AND SCORPIO ALSO ARE BEING IMPACTED ON THIS HEART OPENING MAGIC ASTROLOGY FULL MOON.
I filmed this January 18 based on the Astrology chart of the Inauguration January 20 astrology which is a Taurus Moon MARS conjunct Uranus conjunction still under the Mars Uranus square to Jupiter and Saturn. Bullish anger and explosive energy. This is one of the hardest dates of the year astrologically. Anything can happen especially with internet outage, radical warriors, chaos, wars being started and maybe not exactly on this date the chaos is set to continue up until January 26 when the Sun squares URANUS after Mars ruler of Aries squares Jupiter in Aquarius on the 22,
This chart is the birth chart of the next four years.
As you can see Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Athena, Mercury all in radical higher minded revolutionary AQUARIUS in the 10th house of public career and worldly fame. This means America is in a revolutionary state of mind. Which can manifest two ways. One is an egalitarian non-hierarchy of sharing ideas, technological advances, innovation, G5, A1 robotics and one world government. Revolution pure and simple will be a major tone and America was birthed in revolutionary wars and with its Pluto return coming in 2022 this is totally accurate.
The majority of planets are in the nefarious 12th House of mental illness, secrets,the unconscious, spirituality, delusions, addictions, debt, hidden enemies, glamour, oil, drugs, prisoners and self sabotage. This will be where the majority of energies are emanating from.
Chiron is in Aries, here’s a firewalking healer. The Moon is at the last Anaretic most critical degree of warrior ARIES conjunct Eris the planet of disturbances and lust for revenge to “set the record straight.” Eris and the Fiery impulsive angry defensive Moon is squaring Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon always symbolizes the people, angry, defensive,ready for action, impulsive and reckless. Burning everything down.
Mars Uranus conjunction is another volatile aspect a raging bull in TAURUS ruling Bull markets, and Uranus governance of Aquarius is cryptocurrencies overturning old money. Lilith is also conjunct Mars and Uranus indicating a denial of the values of the Dark Feminine powers may explode as she and Mars uranus are squaring Sun Saturn Jupiter in AQUARIUS.
TAURUS rising at the 15th strongest degree of earthy, sensual, stubborn, feminine, lazy, values, luxury, music, and arts loving resourceful sign. Is ruled by VENUS in CApricorn also at the 15th degree in an Earthy Trine. Women in government, women running business, flourishing of crafts, handmade, practical beauty. Restrictions, limitations, conservative, practical times.
NEPTUNE at 18 PISCES conjunct CERES the Earth Mother squaring the NODES of FATE
This is a very powerful configuration. CERES rules the earth, food, harvesting, nourishment, cereals grains. Neptune rules viruses. secrets, delusion,deception, debt, confusion, projections, intangibles, mental illness, glamour, self-sabotage. The North NODE in GEMINI the sign of communications and two-faces, the South Node in Sagittarius is foreign countries, higher education, travel, justice, truth, humour philosophy is what we are leaving and also drawing from. This KARMIC critical aspect will prevail into 2024. As Neptune moves through the last degrees of PISCES where it is even stronger I feel and more deceptive. Deception, projection mental illness, addictions, glamour debt are all huge issues with everything. This had to do with Monsanto/Bayer GMO, food being manipulated, food shortages,drugs to control people’s behaviours, germ and viral warfare, control by Big Pharma, false gurus, deception,delusion,endings.
I talk about this in the video.
I was going to do a tarot card reading at the end and my video mysteriously turned off. Guess i wasn’t supposed to do that.
I just did the U.S. Numerology July 4, 1776, adds up to 1787 a destiny year in the U.S.
The U.S.’s numerology is 1 + 7+8 + 7 =23 = 5 The U.S. is THE POPE, Spiritual authority, Taurus energy.
5 = VENUS’s upturned pentagram. Taurus rules physical strength, the body, sensuality, wealth, resources, tools, speech, the voice, the 5th chakra, embodiment, stubbornness, resourceful, toolmaker, materiality, Bull market, wealth, luxury, artistic, lazy, nature, feminine, cattle, creative, Venus-ruled, all about the money.
The U.S. is currently in a #6 year since its birth in 2020. The Lovers Year which is Gemini is dual-natured communications driven energy. Ideally it is about the divine union of masculine and feminine. 2021 adds up to #7 a Cancer ruled year in a Cancer country. Home, family, food, emotional safety, defences, women, children, nurturing, nurses, security a return to the womb will all play a key theme this year. We are 10 months into LOCKDOWN most of the world is locked in at home.
Please watch the video
My observation that having 25,000 soldiers Protecting the Inauguration doesn’t look democratic means that it simply doesn’t look like what happens in a Democracy. Yes, those crazed white supremacist rioters, anti-semitic racists and Confederates are out of their minds and should be arrested for destruction at the Capitol and other hate crimes. You need to step back and observe what you see and not the rationale for it to understand what’s really going on. This has been my perspective my entire life. I am not a Trump Supporter I am a Canadian and am affected by U.S. politics. I live 100 miles north of the U.S. border. I feel it. America needs to be rebuilt and have their “reset because of Pluto return whichever party is in control. Politics is totally corrupt and the Democrats are not the “pure saviours of liberalism” that is also dangerous rhetoric. Everything is too oppositional on purpose. They’re all just puppets. It’s a Punch and Judy show.Some puppets have more decorum and communicate betterand do more social thingsand appear to have a conscience.
We need new political parties worldwide that represent the higher states of consciousness, love of Mother Earth and egalitarian, peaceful, female and racial equality and support between nations, not UN domination or WHO or IMF, Bill Gates Big Pharma, not a world controlling one-world government. These are dire times.
Use discernment and question everything.

Jan 15 How did we get to the middle of the Month already?
Moon enters PISCES and its chill out and be psychic and relax meditate be creativethat continues on Saturday just sextiles all dayand easy aspects all weekend. Escapist tendencies will be high. This is the best lucid dreaming and visualizing time of the Month.
but then on the 17th JUPITER in AQUARIUS SQUARE URANUS in TAURUS
URANUS has just turned direct on the 14th and is immovable. You know a bull that is stamping its feet and snorting getting ready to charge? yeah like that energy.
Expect the UNEXPECTED at 6+ of both air and earth fixed signsas this is rebellious energetics.Play Rebel, Rebel by David Bowie.
and the wild radical MARS conjunct URANUS on January 20 on INAUGURATION DAY
Anything can happen, it will be wild, chaotic,inventive, tech jamming, could be big computer shut downs, hacking, maybe no internet, and radical crazy energies.
It’s like lightning strikes, but with Uranus in Taurus wanting radical stability radical hands on tools.
These energies act on the Cryptocurrency market big time. There can be more protests radical actions and rebellion.

Mars turns DIRECT finally, Friday the 13th at 7:36 pm EST at 15 degrees ARIES after more than 2 months of Retrograde back-peddling anger, angst and held back energy. How exhausted have you been?
Superstitious? is it a bad luck omen for Mars to be going Direct on Friday the 13th?
This happened before on April 13, 2012
Mars Direct Friday the 13th, at 15 degrees ARIES opposite U.S. Natal Saturn at 14+ degrees LIBRA! Expect a fireball of angry uproar, over injustices and a major karmic Saturn in Libra turning point. All that energy, rage, testosterone held back since September 9 is hell-bound to go. Apparently there is a million MAga supporters ready to march in support of Trump in the U.S. on the weekend.Saturn in Libra is a peacekeeper?
FIRE AWAY! watch out for loose cannons, warring factions, violence, firing squads, angry balls of fire, explosions, volcanic explosions, angry mobs, rampant testosterone, repressed road rage and red bull rage on the loose.
Use this angtsy, dramatic, frustrating time for good. After all, energy is just energy, Anger is the mask for sadness actually. Fuel your anger towards things you are frustrated about and would like to change. Work it out at the gym, run a marathon for a good cause. We will all still have to sweat it out.
The masculine energy of rage, anger, and defensiveness is strong now. Women have their own inner Mars warrior energy too as do all beings. Corporate blow back is another name for it.This means that all significant events dealing with men, defenses, corporate leaders, President Trumpetc. is powerful.
Events concerning the Divine Masculine have gone through a revision, a review, a renegotiation, a revaluation while Mars has been Retrograde in the warrior’s home sign for the past two months. Like Venus when she is Retrograde and visits the Underworld, having to forgo her ego stage by stage, chakra by chakra. Mars has been in the belly of the beast as well. In all myths, the killing of the ego in the underworld is a necessary one.Have you felt this?
If you have planets at the mid degrees of ALL CARDINAL SIgns ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA AND CAPRICORN YOU WILL FEEL THE BURST OF ENERGY THE STRONGEST.
MARS AND VENUS ARE STILL OPPOSED AND THERE IS THAT T-SQUARE ENERGY WHICH IS TENSE.
Have you had an old relationship start up again with Mars Retrograde?
WE’RE HEADING TO AN INTENSE SCORPIO NEW MOON ON THE 14TH AND 15TH.

We all know about JOVIAL JUPITER the blessings of abundance and benefits. The Santa Claus of the planets.
Hades or PLUTO Lord of the Underworld or Shades, the unconscious, supervised the trial and punishment of the wicked after death, but he was not one of the judges in the underworld. he didn’t torture the guilty, that was the job of the Furies (Erinyes). Hades was depicted as a stern pitiless character, unmoved by prayer or sacrifice. You can’t bet against death. Forbidding and aloof, he never quite emerges as a distinct personality he is unknowable.
Pluto is God of modern Psychotherapy the Unconscious our deepest darkest shadows which we project onto others if we don’t integrate these unacceptable parts of ourselves and the Plutocrats.
Of course we have been seeing the heavy side of Jupiter expanding Pluto’s dark heavy power control secret corporate cabals all of 2020which wont end on December 21 2020 by the way.
This is a great day to dig deep deep deep into your own shadows, into whatever has been holding you back, fear, shame, lack of self-esteem, fear of success or failure, poverty consciousness, denial of death and your own negative traits, excavate them and offer them to the Gods to free yourself.
Hades, in Greek “the Unseen”, also calledPluto orPluton “the Wealthy One” or “the Giver of Wealth” in ancient Greek religion, god of the underworld. Hades was a son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea, and brother of the deities Zeus/Jupiter, Poseidon/Neptune, Demeter/Ceres Hera/Juno and Hestia/Vesta in Greek and Roman.

This is a superb auspicious manifestation of expanded inner and outer wealth. The riches of the IMMORTAL soul which Pluto rules.
ORPHIC hymn to JUPITER
The Fumigation from Storax. “O Jove much-honor’d, Jove [Zeus] supremely great, to thee our holy rites we consecrate, Our pray’rs and expiations, king divine, for all things round thy head exalted shine. The earth is thine, and mountains swelling high, the sea profound, and all within the sky. Saturnian [Kronion] king, descending from above, magnanimous, commanding, sceptred Jove [Zeus]; All-parent, principle and end of all, whose pow’r almighty, shakes this earthly ball; Ev’n Nature trembles at thy mighty nod, loud-sounding, arm’d with light’ning, thund’ring God. Source of abundance, purifying king, O various-form’d from whom all natures spring; Propitious hear my pray’r, give blameless health, with peace divine, and necessary wealth.”
JUPITER’s offerings are royal purple, tin, Juniper berries, GIN,
In Greek mythology, you must pay a fee in order to enter The Underworld and find peace. Hades must be paid. PLUTO or HADES is more obscure, black, skulls, pomegranate for Persephone his wife, dank smelling odours,mint, honey, coffee herbs or spices related to the dead, lavender, rosemary, or thyme, poppy seeds, white lillies, hard liquor or wine, and coins.
ORPHIC HYMN to PLUTO
“Pluto [Plouton], magnanimous, whose realms profound are fix’d beneath the firm and solid ground, In the Tartarian plains remote from fight, and wrapt forever in the depths of night; Terrestrial Jove [Zeus Khthonios], thy sacred ear incline, and, pleas’d, accept thy mystic’s hymn divine. Earth’s keys to thee, illustrious king belong, its secret gates unlocking, deep and strong. ‘Tis thine, abundant annual fruits to bear, for needy mortals are thy constant care. To thee, great king, Avernus is assign’d, the seat of Gods, and basis of mankind. Thy throne is fix’d in Hade’s dismal plains, distant, unknown to rest, where darkness reigns; Where, destitute of breath, pale spectres dwell, in endless, dire, inexorable hell; And in dread Acheron, whose depths obscure, earth’s stable roots eternally secure. O mighty dæmon, whose decision dread, the future fate determines of the dead, With captive Proserpine [Kore], thro’ grassy plains, drawn in a four-yok’d car with loosen’d reins, Rapt o’er the deep, impell’d by love, you flew ’till Eleusina’s city rose to view; There, in a wond’rous cave obscure and deep, the sacred maid secure from search you keep, The cave of Atthis, whose wide gates display an entrance to the kingdoms void of day. Of unapparent works, thou art alone the dispensator, visible and known. O pow’r all-ruling, holy, honor’d light, thee sacred poets and their hymns delight: Propitious to thy mystic’s works incline, rejoicing come, for holy rites are thine.”
November 9 the two love and sex planets, Venus in Libra opposes Mars retrograde in Aries both planets are strengthened in their home signs. This is a challenging balancing act, face off/ tango with the planets of women, love, harmony, balance, values and money and Mars, the planet of men, sex, defences, and action. Mars is Retrograde and held back and frustrated. But not for much longer.
Mars turns direct Friday, November 13th at 15 degrees Aries, the most powerful degree for the first time since September 9/10th unleashing a fireball of anger, angst,repressed sexual tension and pent up passion.
