February 15 is Nirvana day
I had been told about this day many years ago and it had always stuck in my memory. It’s not to commemorate the band or Kurt Cobain. It’s the day that Buddhists celebrate the death of the Buddha and his attainment of Nirvana. Other Buddhists use February 8th. Read more about that here.

Daily Tarot reading is from The Muse Tarot by Chris-Anne
The winged horse is a vehicle to fly to Heaven like Pegasus in the Greek myths. I’ve always loved winged horse. This card related to AIR and the Mind or thoughts so imagine the winged horse coming to uplift you. Interesting synchronicity of this card. In Islam. Mohammed went to Heaven on a Winged Horse named Buraq with the Angel Gabriel which is the same mythology/symbolism as the Buddha attaining enlightenment/Nirvana.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day.
FEB 15 is known as NIRVANA DAY. Not the grunge band with Kurt Cobain, it is sacred to Buddhists and Hindu‘s.
The Buddha reaching Nirvana or enlightenment
What is NIRVANA? In Buddhism, it is a transcendent state where there is no suffering, or desires, and no ego or sense of self. Once reaching that state of awareness, one is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.
In Indian religions, nirvana is synonymous with moksha. In Vedic culture, moksha conveys a notion of immortality, and also of a timeless, “unborn”, or “the still point of the turning world of time”. It also means a timeless structure, the whole underlying “the spokes of the invariable but incessant wheel of time”. The hope for life after death started with notions of going to the worlds of the Fathers or Ancestors and/or the world of the Gods or Heaven and liberation. All Indian religions assert Nirvana to be a state of perfect quietude, freedom, highest happiness and along with it, the liberation from samsara, the repeating cycle of birth, life and death.
Buddhism is not a belief system, it is a practice that enables us to stop struggling and to be liberated.
The various schools of Buddhism understand nirvana in different ways, but they generally agree that nirvana is not a place. It is more a state of existence. The Buddha said that anything we might say or imagine about nirvana will be wrong, because it is utterly different from our ordinary existence. Nirvana is beyond space, time, and definition, and so language is by definition inadequate to discuss it. It can only be experienced. Samsara or illusion is a process of creating places, even whole worlds, (and then wandering through them, the Buddhists call this, birth. Nirvana is the end of this process of mind forms.
There are two types of Nirvana. One type describes a living enlightened being, or arahant. The arahant is still conscious of pleasure and pain, but he or she is no longer bound to them. The second type is final,complete Nibbana or Nirvana that is “entered” at death. The Buddha taught that this state is neither existence because that which can be said to exist is limited to time and space-nor non-existence. This seeming paradox is because ordinary language attempts to describe a state of being that is indescribable.
One of the distinguishing characteristics of Mahayana Buddhism is the bodhisattva vow. This is something I have taken many times. Mahayana Buddhists are dedicated to the ultimate enlightenment of all beings, and thus choose to remain in the world in assistance to others rather than move on to individual enlightenment.
On the apparent real levels;
The LIBRA MOON of fairness and balance, and hopefully some peace lines us up with those CARDINAL CROSSESS again. Which we feel and know yet they are also an illusion but a symbol and guidmap.
The Moon is conjunct PLUTO at 2:58 am EST, opposes Uranus and conjuncts JUPITER all before noon in PST and EST. That’s the feel-good transit. Don’t get too overly optimistic though.
Moon inconjuncts CHIRON in PISCES
you may be feeling really tired, or your tummy upset, or just feel the weight of the world in our emotional body. There is lots of turmoil going on. Try to see it and transcend it.
Moon sextiles SATURN in SAGITTARIUS
so tell it like it is brothers and sisters. I will be.
AIR TRINE time with Moon trining the Sun in AQUARIUS at 27 degrees
If you are a GEMINI with SUN at 27 degrees, which means born on June 18th like Beatle Paul McCartney, and my son Elijah born June 19th, conjunct the POLE STAR this is a good day for you. We will all be feeling lighter, more detached and able to access that rarified higher consciousness.
Moon goes Void of Course @ 5:54 pm PST/ 8:54 pm EST/
Moon enters Deep dark 50 shades of SCORPIO @ 10:41 pm PST
Feb 16 @ 1:41 am EST/ 6:41 am GMT.
It’s heavy-duty, obsessive, power, control, shadow issues until Saturday afternoon
Tune into NIRVANA. Focus on yourself as empty, timeless, without thought or consciousness. Connect with all the enlightened beings, the Buddha, Jesus, or Green Tara, or Kwan Yin Bodhisattvas of compassion.

The PATH to NIRVANA by Alan Watts
July 14, I am trying to give you a day before preview now. You like that?
July 14: That Mars Uranus inconjunct which happened late on the 13th in PDT occurs EDT at 1:13 am. You may find yourself tossin’ and turning all night. My husband and daughter did that last night. Did you?
The intense SCORPIO Moon makes two sextiles to PLUTO in CAPRICORN and JUPITER in VIRgO in the wee hours PDT and EDT. This can be a cornucopia of great dream wealth. Programme you dreams before sleep this night.
SCORPIO Moon trines the CANCER SUN
This a nice harmonious emotional birth/death sort of energy. Maybe very high and low alternatively. Can be very fertile as well in all senses. Create a dark dish-black? deep purple? to seduce and delight a Cancer with; squid ink pasta? The way to their hearts is through their stomach’s.
Scorpio Moon inconjuncts URANUS in ARIES and ERIS
This is more of that can’t integrate the brave new world energy yet stuff. The resistance to change, because of immigrants, “others”, LGBT or expanding beyond any old tribal ideology is strong. Resistance is futile. Life is always about change and adaptation.
MOON conjuncts MARS in SCORPIO this double emphasizes that Inconjunct energy.
Scorpio Moon trines Chiron in Pisces
In the evening, healing time comes by being open to our wounds and our failings. Vulnerability is the greatest strength.
TAROT CARD OF THE DAY
Eight of Wands/ Eight of Fire Vision Quest Tarot
The 8’s are always karmic by virtue of the number 8 itself. There is a sense of destiny, a turning point.
The eight of the element of Fire in the Vision Quest Tarot points to sparks of insight from many directions. 8 is the number of all the directions in indigenous Pagan ancient wisdom worldwide as in China, 8 is the symbol of Good Fortune and Success, 8x 8 = 64 symbols of the I Ching, and in Feng Shui. There are 8 directions; 4 elements /Cardinal directions and four non-cardinal directions in the Medicine wheel or wheel of the year, or time. Eight is the symbol of Infinity, meaning that all time is now.
Remember that whatever is going down, breathing fully into the NOW, the only moment there is, is called NIRVANA, The point of bliss and choice. It is total freedom.
Remember there is more than one point of view and that there are many vantage points to the whole picture. Walk a mile in the shoes of all the other’s on the circle for a great learning curve.

Lets have a card of the day for Valentine’s day
Ace of Wands by Kate Bedell
this is a new beginning, a new inspiration, a spark in the dark,
If you are feeling lonely, or left out on V-day
this is an opportunity to reach inside your own heart deeper,
into the fire within your own heart where the spark of love lives
while you are alive there is a physical spark of fire/love which you are.
After you pass on from this dimension you are an eternal spark of consciousness/love
Have a great Valentine’s day and remember it is better to give than to receive so send some love out to someone else.
also the POPE crowned the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City a big nod to the GODDESS in public
Feb 15 is President’s Day in the U.S. on the 15th and it’s family day in Canada
It is also called Nirvana Day the day the Buddha reached enlightenment

I have always loved sky watching. Searching for falling Stars, wishing on stars, I have my North Node in Pisces at 4.59 degrees in my 4th house,
Spirituality is my highest spiritual expression. It is also my home, my memories,my roots, my foundation.
For all you disasterists,the one’s who are obsessed with disasters- you know dis-aster means without a star,
I thought I’d check out Asteroid 2012 DA14-
about 33 days away-
A very teensy weensy asteroid ,2012 DA14 is scheduled to give the earth a very very close shave on Feb 15 2013
scheduled closest approach is at 19:26 UTC which equals 2:26 PM EST
the tiny asteroid will be well within the orbit of the Moon and within the orbits of the geosynchronous satellites and only 21,000/35,000 kms away from earth!
When I was pregnant with our daughter Leah 15 years ago, a half Saturn cycle ago, my husband and artist NAPOLEON BROUSSEAU started to paint asteroid paintings, one after the other on paper. All great artists are prophetic visionaries, ahead of their times,check them out at http://www.napob.com/
What does the Astrology chart tell us? set for Washington D.C. NASA headquarters
The chart shows the Moon at 4 degrees of Taurus in the 10th house of worldly fame and notoriety, conjunct Fixed Star called Mesartim meaning Minister in Ancient Hebrew- indicating protection.
That’s good, the Moon will watch this little fly by critter.
The Sun is at 27 degrees Aquarius in the 8th house of death,the traditional Scorpio house. Looking like there will be some technological intervention to deflect the little asteroid away from doing harm as much as the technology can perfectly know how to do that. Sun in Aquarius sends to me a message that there is some form of intergalactic message in a bottle figuratively speaking with this little Asteroid. Our technological tools will be affected by it. Back up thy hardrive!
Saturn is opposite the Moon and if the timing might be off a bit the Asteroid will progress further to oppose Saturn at 11 degrees of Scorpio, the sign of death, regeneration, rebirth. Saturn also squares Venus in Aquarius in the 8th house of sex, death, rebirth, power, secrets, It is a serious chart- so one would take note. As a BBC TV announcer suggested do get your affairs in order rather perfunctorily. Why would it matter?
Venus is also TRINE- an easy aspect with LILLITH– in Gemini. Lillith, the original woman, refused to submit to Adam in the original old Testament story and fled the Garden of Eden choosing to live by the Red Sea. I’d go to your own little bit of Paradise if I were you.
The Ascendant for that time is 18 degrees Cancer ruled by the Moon. Ascendant is squared by ERIS the newly discovered Minor Planet who is the Goddess of DISCORD, her Ancient Greek heritage is Very dark, she is very Lillith-like, the 13th Goddess in Fairy Tales who was always overlooked and then cursed the innocent one. Eris is like Persephone, Underworldly, Eris is like Ereshkigal in the Babylonian myths.
Eris is righteous, honest, reveals liars. So this is an interesting symbol who is telling the truth in the media?
If there was an impeding disaster do you think you’d be notified?
Juno – Goddess of Feminine wisdom sits on the Descendant use your own Intuition and ingenuity, I say.
Neptune Chiron Mars and Mercury are all in Pisces and in the 9th house,and that’s a lot of water planets people and as the earth is 70% ocean so if the Asteroid were to hit the earth it would most likely fall into the Oceans, It is approaching from the South Pole.
Jupiter at 6 degrees Gemini is square to Chiron, so that’s a big hurtin’ and a big healing in communications.
Gemini is about all forms of communications and the asteroid will go through our satellites so my bet is – don’t be in the air during this time, or one day before or after or be doing anything critical that requires reliable satellite navigation. Gorget the GPS, Learn how to reap a real map!
The MC or high noon position is zero degrees Aries, the symbolic beginning of the Zodiac. So the asteroid signifies a world beginning or renewal.
Uranus and Pluto continue to do their long-term square dance and Pluto is at 10 degrees Capricorn in the 6th house of work, service, health so there may be some upheavals in the work day/force, some health issues that also arise at this time. Didn’t Terrence McKenna say all human consciousness originally came from spores in asteroids? Well then that’s good news to me. Maybe a whole new shipment of consciousness is coming by as a band-aid to wake us up and expand our consciousness s’more! Great! JUst in the nick of time.
The North Node is at 20 degrees of Scorpio in the 5th house of creativity, love affairs, children giving love, self-expression, will and heart power. When in doubt if the world’s gonna end- you know what to do.
The North Node also trines the Ascendant and Mercury, creating a -not illustrated GRAND WATER TRINE! We will get another one of these again large in late July. Water, oceans, bliss, endings, ever beginning, always ending, never born, never die. Water is the Unconscious,the soul, the Underworld.
We come from the Ocean, the womb, Stella Maris, the Oceanic Universe, a drop in the Ocean, the Universe within us.
Neptune is conjunct Fixed Star Fomalhaut – ARCHANGEL GABRIEL – the trumpet Blower on Judgment DAY-
so this feels very symbolic. I would pray to Gabriel,if one so feels impelled.
Be where you want to be, doing exactlty what YOU want to do, at all times! Is the only real answer in order to live fully in the present.
OH YEAh and FEb 15 is called NIRVANA DAY because it is when Buddha reached enlightenment,
auspicious I would say.
Drunvalo Melchizedek in his Book Serpent of Light states that the end of the Mayan Calendar does not happen on Dec 21 2012 but on Feb 18/19 2013. Very close to this date. Just thought I’d mention it.
MEDITATE ON IT
I would meditate and if you have a meteorite, or a tektite a transmitting sister to this asteroid, a souvenir from space. I would highly recommend that you sleep with it, meditate with it, tune in over these next few days. How about if we meet back here in a week and compare notes? I will do that with mine,and keep your tongue on the roof of your mouth while you meditate, this creates a circuit of energy to your PINEAL GLAND.
I will be starting an online chat room through a private FB page. If you want to join in to chat about Astrology, mythology,dreams, meditation, art, symbols, and collectively tune in together there will be a small fee and we can meet regularly over the next month for a week.
Please email me- firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
