Cosmic News

From time to time I will post some ‘Cosmic News’, when the planets are having a major impact or there is a cosmic configuration of particular interest.

I am not an Astrologer, however, any Tarot practitioner will know that each of the 78 cards in the deck have a direct affiliation with the planets and Astrology. Therefore a working knowledge of the Heavens is a requirement for any serious Tarot reader. I also post the ‘ Cosmic News’ on my Facebook page and Twitter.

FEBRUARY 2019 COSMIC NEWS & TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

Hello everyone, can you believe it is February already! Where did January go?

Here is my Cosmic News and Card of the month for each sign. Before you scroll down to see what is in store for your sign this month, take a moment to have a look at the two moon events this month.

The New Moon which falls on 4thFebruary and the Full Moon which happens on 19thFebruary.

Aware that some of you mentioned that you found the January and 2019 overview a bit ‘sparse’, I have attempted to give a much more in depth look at Februarys Astrology influences.  Please feel free to like, share and generally spread the word!

Best wishes – Rosemary

FEBRUARY SPECIAL OFFER

 January has been hugely busy as everyone wants a preview of the year ahead.  Things are calming down a bit now and I have plenty of availability in February.  If you introduce a friend and both come for a reading on the same day, I will give each reading for £65.00 instead of the normal £70.00.

COSMIC NEWS & TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH FOR FEBRUARY

 The New Moon on February 4thin Aquarius has a positive influence because it is conjunct Mercury and trine Jupiter. So it brings optimism, generosity and a philosophical outlook. The new moon at the midpoint of Saturn sextile Neptune increases spiritual awareness and understanding.

This New Moon is very fortunate.It is the most positive of any moon phase for over a year. It provides good luck, good news, enthusiasm, generosity and happiness.

The New Moon also offers spiritual wisdom and will assist you in reaching your goals. This New Moon is expansive, charitable, philosophical and is full of optimism and goodwill.

The Sun conjunct the Moon brings an invigorating blast of energy and highlights initiative. This is an excellent time for starting afresh, turning over a new leaf, or beginning a new project. You can also address and change old habits, behaviours and beliefs as you quest for new, innovative methods for making progress.

The influences of the February 4th New Moon will be felt for four weeks up to the March 6thNew Moon.

Because of this New Moon’s conjunct two stars in the minor constellation of Delphinus, the Dolphin – it brings light-heartedness, pleasure, travel, and enjoyment of sports in general. In addition, it also brings disatisfaction, possible dissembling and duplicity, and even ingratitude.

FULL MOON 19 FEBRUARY

 The February 19th Full Moon in Virgo is conjunct the powerful fixed star Regulus, in the centre of the Leo Constellation. This is a strong, sensual and adventurous full moon.  Regulus brings courage, independence, ambition, success, power and recognition. It is the star of monarchy, military, world leaders, sex symbols, sports celebrities and astrologers. Regulus assists people to be more competitive, aggressive, generous and open-minded.

However, brash self-confidence, coupled with the success and frankness of Regulus evokes jealousy, resentment and powerful enemies. Throughout history, to become the king you had to kill the king. The US President has Ascendant and Mars conjunct Regulus. He will be especially combative during this eventful two-week moon phase.

The Moon conjunct Regulus also brings interest in the occult, influential  friends, gains from speculative activities and public prominence, with great power, honour and financial improvements. However, such benefits are transitory and there is risk from enemies and false friends, violence, trouble and sickness. Regulus with the Full Moon also encourages women to be more independent and as a result, high-spirited!

The constellation of Leo is associated with the royal family and events within it. Particularly the ascension or passing of kings and queens, the election or death of heads of state, uprisings, assassinations, massacres, currency, the Stock Market, also the Vatican and the European Union.

FULL MOON PLANETS

Mars Conjunct Uranus brings a powerful urge to break free of limiting conditions. On its own, this is an unpredictable, erratic and volatile conjunction. But – the harmonious aspects to the Sun and Moon reduce the possibility of reckless behaviour and unsettling events. Which means, you can afford to take a few risks. Allow this full moon enhance your life with change, excitement and adventure!

Trust your instincts and follow your passionate desires. You can fully express your unusual side under this sexually provocative influence. Experimentation could reinvigorate an existing intimate relationship, or bring a passionate new romance. Allowing yourself to be un-inhibited brings greater personal freedom and unexpected opportunities.

This is a great Full Moon to get new projects off the ground with a rush of adventurous energy. Although your determination and adrenaline will eventually fade, you can get new projects to a level where that energy is no longer needed.

While on its own the conjunction of Neptune and Mercury influence may bring confusion, apprehension, deception andscandal, the sextile to Venus, Saturn brings sensitivity, romance, sensuality, attraction and creative imagination.

Venus conjunct to Saturn on its own can bring sadness, loneliness and lack of affection. But the sextile to Mercury Neptune brings companionship, true love, reassurance, loyalty and commitment.

Together, the alignment of these four planets Mercury, Neptune, Venus & Saturn brings compassion, healing, selflessness, clairvoyance and spirituality. This is a good full moon for dreaming, psychic awareness and exploring occult subjects such as astrology and Tarot.

Summary

 Both Regulus and the Mars Uranus conjunction have the potential to bring upheaval, rebellion and violence. However their energetic, hearty and outgoing natures complement each other – providing positive change, adventure and excitement.

Likewise, the negative influences of Mercury conjunct Neptune and Venus conjunction Saturn are ameliorated by the sextile aspects that link them.

Therefore the incredible volume of energy created by Regulus, the full moon and the three planetary conjunctions, combine in a sympathetic and harmonious way that is safer and more user-friendly than each on its own.

So the Full Moon in February 2019 brings exciting opportunities that will evoke feelings of freedom and vitality. Many disparate matters that have confused, frightened or depressed you will appear to come into better focus and make more sense. This should restore your faith that God, or the Universe, does indeed have a purpose for you.

You now have the power to change the way you view your life… in turn, this will bring the adjustments you want. This year’s solar eclipses occur in the areas of your chart associated with having fun for the sake of it.

Your ideas can become reality.  The solar eclipse in your sign on July 2 seems to divide the year into two separate halves. From January to June you are concerned with the consequences of decisions you took toward the end of 2018, these will demand your attention. However, the second half of 2019 will enable you to make the changes you want. Beware of making promises in the second half of 2019, you may not be able to keep them.

Yet observing your past achievements provides valuable lessons as well,  giving helpful insights regarding the best method to achieve success in 2019. Shortly, events and encounters will encourage you to re-examine a past experience (or relationship) and this provides you with the opportunity to achieve greater insight into a particular decision you’ve made. Increased self-awareness leads to a more optimistic beginning, which continues throughout 2019. Jupiter brings you creativity that others can appreciate.  Your confidence in new found abilities will soar.  The planet of change, Uranus, arrives in your career sector in March. You’ll ‘make friends and influence people’ widening hour circle of friends this year.

Tarot Card:  Judgement – Liberation, judgement, inner calling, transformation. Accounting for past actions, re-evaluation and revival, dropping old outmoded values and embracing new ones, putting your foot down (with yourself)? Having faith that the next step will emerge organically.

Virgo: To achieve anything we need courage. However, that alone won’t bring success. Sensitivity, kindness and patience are also required to find a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.  If you can reduce the stresses in your life and factor in more of the aforementioned qualities, this years journey will be one of energy and dynamic change.  Neptune can bring an ‘all that glitters is not golden’ factor, particularly in relationships, so listen to your intuition more.  Mars from mid August until early October inspires you to take an in-depth look at your own needs.  This may lead to you removing certain commitments, or even people, from your life but all change is good and clears the decks for better things.

Tarot Card:  Nine of Wands – Being prepared, at the ready, defensive strength, awareness. Feeling cautious but developing strength, persistence and perseverance, gathering your resources for the next push forward.

Libra: Your intuition is highly charged this year. Learn to pay more attention to your instincts, they will serve you well. The planets of relationships, Venus and Mars, join forces in a celestial waltz around the zodiac this year, and highlights that you will seldom be required to ‘dance alone’. From mid-September to mid-November, when first Venus, followed by Mars, travel through your birth sign bringing a variety of wonderful connections, some personal, some professional and, yes, some very romantic. Travel is also highlighted and you will explore new places of interest in and around your home base.

Tarot Card: Six of Pentacles – Generosity, willingness, gifts, consideration. Loss and gain, giving and taking, shift in power, be aware that your giving nature could be taken advantage of, if you fail to set boundaries.

Scorpio: The New Year brings you the ability to tackle a tricky issue by turning it on its head. As Mars arrival in Aries brings a box, you can think outside it! Innovative ideas abound. You have all the resources you need to turn a challenge into a triumph. Creatively and imagination are key, start 2019 as you mean to continue.  The eclipses in January and July inspire you to explore the infinite ways you use your mind and the variety of ways your mind interprets the world. Education is highlighted as a path to success in 2019, no matter your age or situation, you’ll find that every day has something fresh to teach you – about yourself, other people and reality in general. Explore and apply new ideas on a daily basis. When Mars enters your sign in mid-November, your adventurous spirit progresses you further than you can ever have imagined.

Tarot Card:  ten of Cups – Family happiness, joy, peace, harmony, promise of more to come, safe haven. Feeling at one with the world. Seeing the light, emotional fulfilment, completion of a cycle, restoration of the status quo.

Sagittarius:  We all express our creativity in different ways. At the beginning of 2019, as Mars moves into Aries, it highlights your impulsive, spontaneous nature – which should be acknowledged and celebrated. You’ve endured some hard times over the last few years; it’s now time to relax. Circumstances are about to provide you with some well-deserved fun.  Your ruler, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, is in your sign up until December, so this is your year to sparkle! What are your motivations? What is your inspiration? Focus on that and make it the centre of your world. In January, when Mars is linked with Jupiter, also in May, July and November, your endeavours to make changes for the better could have a greater impact that you can imagine too. The world is certainly a better place for having you in it.

Tarot Card: Three of Pentacles – Skill, cooperation, team-work, planning. Professional growth, material gain, proving yourself, a competent strategy, being aware of your potential, getting together with others, team spirit, recognition of skills, building for the future – acquisition or enhancement of property?

Capricorn:You may have been very busy, saving the day and rescuing underdogs. Just remember, your commendable sense of moral duty is not an obligation. As we move into 2019, it’s a good time to devote your energy towards self-nurturing and your own needs. There is a solar eclipse in your sign on Jan. 6, and over the following six months – until the lunar eclipse, also in your sign, in mid-July – you will be able to achieve greater progress than you thought possible. You have a sense of mission, combined with ruthless ambition, which could lose you a few friends along the way, but that’s a small price to pay for the success you have desired for so long. By the time Jupiter enters your sign in December you will have taken the world by storm – and created a few storms of your own!

Tarot Card:  Two of Swords – Decision required to unblock ‘stalemate’.  Trying to see both sides doesn’t help in this instance. Ask yourself, ‘what do I really want’, what are you not seeing?  Look more closely and trust your intuition.

Aquarius: Mars’ arrival in Aries brings a chance for you to review an issue from the recent past, and reinvent your attitude towards reconciling it in your own mind. When you help yourself, you assist others as well.  This year friendships are well-aspected and if you are passionate about a social or political cause, or want to be more involved with your local community, now is the time to make a contribution. Be aware that not everyone will celebrate that you are spending more time with new people than with those close to you. Communication is essential: Inform loved ones what you are doing and invite them to become involved too. Your views are not always conventional and the influence of Uranus from early March indicates that you won’t be alone in having revolutionary ideas.

Tarot card:  The World – Completion, fulfilment, freedom from fear, reward for hard work and effort, time for celebration of self and others. Feeling the world is your oyster, travelling physically and mentally.  Accomplishing what you set out to achieve, feeling at one with yourself and the universe.  New beginnings.

Pisces:As we begin 2019 you’ll be assessing your friendships, who stood by you in 2018, who was there to support you through challenges?  Your awareness and intuition assist you in knowing who are the significant people in your life.  Have faith that you are supported by those both incarnate and discarnate. Know that the future holds immense promise for you.  The most significant time of the year is the two-week period between the solar and lunar eclipses on July 2 and 16. Creatively, you will be making important strides,  so identify what you most want to achieve and set your goals higher than ever before, because what many will say is impossible, you will achieve with grace. Just before that, from mid-May to the end of June, is also an important time, as the impact of Mars will provide you with the enormous levels of energy. Pisces will shine!

Tarot Card: Ten of Wands – Taking on to much responsibility, uphill struggle. Too willing to please and over extending yourself. Can’t see the wood for the trees. However, realising that reducing issues to their basic requirements and resisting ‘over-complication’ will assist you in seeing the way through.  Your goals are achievable, have faith!
