What great lesson in love are the Masters of the Cosmos providing to human beings in February?
ANSWER: Ten of Wands
Combating exhausted affection.
The Masters of the Cosmos acknowledge the amorous weariness rampant in humanity at this time. It is simply too exhausting to express endearment to strange fellow man - emotions are spent, interrelational desiccation is the norm.
Folks are thirsty out here, desperate for some type of psychic hydration, too burnt out to relate from the heart.
Ten of Wands also flags up the state of being when one is sick of fighting, completely over carrying a burden on the back that has become so heavy it is deforming the spine. This is straight up Intimate Scoliosis where the load of love is too much of a hardship to carry and endearment starts to appear as a disease.
However, don’t quit - this laborious trial is fruitful. It may be hard work, but when Ten of Wands is upright, there is a positive outcome around the corner. There is a spiritual purpose for this affectionate enervation. Wait for the turning point and push on, continue the fight for love and endearment. This effort is not a lost cause. Make the last push to arrive at the new cycle.
Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place:
Ten of Wands is associated with Saturn in Sagittarius, the transit this outer planet took for all but three months between December 23, 2014 to December 20, 2017.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Who was I during the Saturn in Sagittarius transit and how did I relate to people?
- What happened interpersonally during this time period that was of deep significance?
- Who am I now and how am I comfortable expressing love following the conclusion of the Saturn in Sagittarius transit? Have my goals for affection changed?
Please closely consider the transformation in relating that has developed for you from December 2014 to the end of December 2017.
KEY FEBRUARY THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - The High Priestess reversed: Ram, an inquiry into the depths of what you really want in your heart has commenced. Of course this involves love, but it’s not just romantic, familial or friendship-oriented; this is about purpose. And “where this is all going” is not the most important element of the situation. It’s more like, for what? Why expel this emotion? There may be a need to cut ties with a spiritual or emotional source of depletion, be it an actual person, a memory, thought, soul connection, anything that is sucking you dry and hindering your sense of being a creative force with complete agency. This is a deep process though and will unveil profound secrets that have been hidden. Enjoy this earnest treasure excavation. Watch for remarkable revelations from February 24-26, when the Moon transits Cancer.
Taurus - Six of Air reversed: Bull, a psychological haunting has proved difficult to overcome. There is this lingering phantom crisis that will not go to rest. Six of Air reversed highlights the sensation of always being prepared for attack. In this case, every possible important thing in life needs to be fortified so it does not fall prey to collapse. What a way to walk on eggshells every single moment of waking life. Please be prepared for this unease to exist in a veiled layer of the mind that has not availed itself in any fashion as it webs within the shrouds of the unconscious. Please also be aware you have the ability to overcome any potential tragedy, so fearing the oncoming of one is not a necessary expense of your energy. Free yourself from these mental binds and give yourself some space to relax.
Gemini - Three of Air: Twin, new responsibilities may weigh heavy on the heart by overburdening day-to-day life with pretense. As this person with more weighty obligations to attend to, keeping up appearances suddenly becomes a thing, even with the most authentic Gemini. Of course it isn’t necessary to fake it till you make it, but for some reason, this way of being becomes an issue. Please don’t feel obligated to impress anyone, including yourself. Imperfection does not mean you suck at this. If something is not the right match, it is not meant to be; playing an inauthentic role or putting on some strange foreign mask does not make it more compatible. Don’t worry about what other people think in February, it’s not worth it. Everyone has their own opinions anyway, what’s that idiom, ‘opinions are like assholes because everyone has one’. Let this be your mantra. You are f**king awesome.
Cancer - Ace of Water: Crab, this card points to new love in life, be it romantic, from a child, pet or other nourishing emergent source. This love is absolutely beautiful. It’s peaceful, soft and tender. After the extreme transformation you’ve been through, it may be straight up shocking to experience this kind of sweet, wonderful love. Bask in it. You’ve been through a helluva lot Cancer, so much so, that pressure may have been the norm for an extended period of time. Take a step back and smell the roses as this new epoch in life commences. There may be a need to literally take more baths this month than usual, to cleanse yourself of the residue of stress and hardship. Yes, it IS normal to experience life without busting your ass to the point of popping the veins in your eye! And not just on a broad intellectual scale that applies to everyone; it is OK for YOU to experience emotional balance and wellness on a regular. Regain that peace and equanimity within your feeling heart this month and do not feel guilty about that. Enjoy the richness in the lightness of being.
Leo - King of Earth: Lion, you’re cementing yourself as a straight up Boss. Proclaiming life under your own authority was of major importance in the entry to the New Year and the presence of King of Earth suggests February is all about maintaining reign over your kingdom. It’s imperative right now to stake claim over assets. Wealth and ownership are major themes, however, these matters must be pursued with the utmost integrity. Any desperate attempt to generate prosperous outcomes through the use of devious means will backfire and it is below the dignity of King of Earth anyway. King of Earth is a levelheaded, honorable, upright, dependable and pragmatic ruler. As tests emerge to throw integrity off track, put on the King of Earth crown and lord from a secure and quality-oriented perspective. There is also a timeline message attached to this card; take it slow, do not speed toward a goal. Use a practical strategy to acquire what you’re after.
Virgo - Ten of Fire: Virgin, backbreaking fatigue is upon you as the finish line nears. Although there is definitely a need to keep pushing toward the end goal, the message for you is kind of a double entendre, because it is important to maintain consistent breath through the completion of the undertaking so little critical details aren’t abandoned out of blind desperation. The fact is, this effort has been exhausting, so hurrying up to just get the dang thing done is a totally understandable mindset, but according to Ten of Fire, it is not the most beneficial stance to take on this issue. There’s no doubt the situation is tense and precarious, but with careful movements the risk is worth it. Taking the cautious approach is the most beneficial way forward here. Do it step-by-step and take the long road. The fact is, this pursuit is such an important life goal, it alters from time to time, meaning, new priorities may emerge and change the direction of the final destination. This time period helps to to promote laughing off perceived turmoil and supports accepting blameless ignorance as a learning tool to engender better things down the line. So as you push to the end, take a breather to determine if you want to change the course a little bit.
Libra - Ten of Water reversed: Scales of Balance, issues surrounding family life, emotional fulfillment and the home are of the utmost importance in February. Ten of Water reversed suggests a dream domestic situation is floating in the psyche. Although you may have it good now, it could be better. This isn’t about having a gold toilet or a top-of-the-line luxury mansion necessarily, the main goal here is to be happy where you’re living, happy with the people you are related to and in positive orientation with cohabitants. This card wants to go home and feel the love. However, the reversal position suggests the possibility of emotional disturbances, things that are upsetting in an enlightening way. For example, an argument with a roommate helps to generate an epiphany about why you would be happier in another domestic arrangement or a landlord goes too far and the incident makes it clear it’s time to bounce. There could be a parent who is ailing that requires you to move back to your hometown or a crazy aunt who takes it to such another level with it, it revs up your desire to move out of state. Or you are shopping at a flea market and this beautiful antique vase turns up that inspires you to redecorate the living room. Whatever the scenario, Ten of Cups reversed suggests there are likely to be events popping up that force you to lay foundations for new domestic and/or familial arrangements. Take the weeks ahead to prepare for this transformation.
Scorpio - Ace of Earth reversed: Scorpion, watch out for shadiness in February. Ace of Earth reversed suggests whoever you are working with may not be the best match for prosperous outcomes. There may be a delay or some hiccup that prevents swift progress, but ultimately this is for your benefit. Beware of overconfidence around financial pursuits and pretty much anything you thought was a secure, done deal. You don’t need to turn pessimistic all of a sudden or be in constant anticipation of some terrible disruption, but it’s best to err on the side of caution in the weeks ahead. There are plenty of other time periods in life where heedfulness isn’t necessary; February is not one of these times. Be shrewd and strategic in general, but especially when it comes to handling some issue, task or relationship that has gone terribly wrong.
Sagittarius - Wheel of Fortune reversed: Centaur, overcome anticipation of entry into a sh*t storm. Wheel of Fortune reversed suggests good talent is under wraps. There is such a huge concealment around this, it could be misconstrued as lost direction, but know, it is beneficial to not have a concrete clue right now. You, this project or issue is still in a waiting period. The transit of Jupiter is of particular importance when considering what is happening in life right now. Jupiter is currently transiting through Scorpio, making most of 2018 a time period of soul searching, inner reflection and discoveries of new sides of yourself that may have just developed recently or been hidden for a while. The internal nature of this energy amplifies from March 9 to July 10, when Jupiter is retrograde. The most beneficial direction for you to take until Jupiter transitions into your Sagittarius sign on November 8 is the chill route. Do not feel pressured to move on all of these grand ideas just yet, they’re still incubating. They’ll be ready to pop off at the end of the year.
Capricorn - Three of Earth: Goat, the hardships of leadership are real. It’s a tough gig to handle so many people. In February, Three of Earth suggests the opportunity to find good help. It’s important to work with others who promote balance through their commitment to maintaining the integrity of the group. In the weeks ahead, the goal is shared and so is the burden. Three of Earth also sheds insight into how to help orchestrate the perfect team effort; throw some sugar on it. The egalitarian approach wins in all interactions. Listening and learning even at the topmost rung of responsibility and leadership will reap rewards. Start to understand your impact on people, how you work with others and colleagues’ perceptions of you. It’s important to know how you’re really viewed, outside of the perception of yourself as a colleague, peer and teammate. But be aware, you’ve got to really think hard about your role. If something is offered to you that is not in alignment with who you are, don’t just take it out of some forceful sense of duty.
Aquarius - Page of Earth reversed: Water Bearer, it’s time to commence the major level-up effort. Ambitious pursuits have been pretty much on the backburner in favour of plumbing emotional and psychological depths in months passed and now the time has come to get busy on boss-like endeavours. There is something special you are hatching when it comes to career, educational or financial moves, however, Page of Earth reversed suggests hesitation or lack of confidence. A fear exists surrounding expressing this with boldness and veracity. It’s similar to wanting to keep the training wheels on a bike out of fear of inexperience, but being able to slam the road on some gangster level in reality. If it doesn’t feel ready quite yet, it’s totally fine to step back to a more comfortable position of safety, where you can strategize a little more. But remember, the goal is to launch this. Learn all you need to learn to feel ready to get this started.
Pisces - The Chariot: School of Fish, a remarkable opportunity presents itself in February, setting the stage for travel on a more dynamic path. Self-determination and purpose may have been iffy in recent months with all the strange communications, misinterpreted contractual elements and so on occurring, but the weeks ahead offer resolution. If you’re reading this like ‘WTF, not me!’, be assured, the divination points to a summer unfolding of whatever goes down this month that ignites this fresh and dynamic course of purpose. The most important thing to understand about this situation is to enjoy the journey. Clamoring for the end goal while on the journey will make the ride suck. Keep at it and celebrate the arrival at your destination in June/July. This is a long-term situation that may even set you up for decades to come. It is the establishment of self that bleeds into issues of home and ultimate life direction.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Keep pushing for progress. Although the circumstances may highlight being beset by exhaustion, struggling through the final embers of a close to kaput fire, the effort towards heightening love and affection is more than worth it in the long run.
- Drop it. Stay present to exhausted or warped habits of behavior around interrelating.
- Start building the foundations necessary to enter a new cycle of emotional associations.
- Celebrate the beauty that is borne through pain and hardship. When tested by adversity, love adds this ridiculously beautiful and resplendent element of existence to it. Yes, it can be hard, but it is a testament to the wonder and beauty of being alive.
- Answer the questions outlined in the ‘Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place’ section above. These personal inquiries may be beneficial in determining just what is so worthy of fighting for when it comes to love and affection.
- Tolerate growing pains. A whole bunch of people are struggling to get out of tangled webs, many had no idea they even possessed issues around this topic. Severe negativity isn’t necessarily a running theme, but when there is pressure on the spine and you’re putting all your might into standing up straight with a heavy load on your back, it’s going to be uncomfortable. Help a brother or sister out with some support, within the boundaries of personal integrity, even if it’s just basic tolerance.
From my heart to yours, much love, thank you for reading!
