Cosmic Sparks On Valentine's Day

14 February 2014 

Blessed Full Moon and a Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!  For those who had been celebrating the Lunar New Year of the Horse in the last 2 weeks, today marks the 15th and final day of the Lunar New Year celebrations.  When I was very young, Mum used to tell me that the 15th day of the Lunar New Year was the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day. Young Chinese maidens looking for a soulmate would throw tangerines down the river in the hope of seeing the reflection of their future husbands in the water.   I did that when I was a young and slightly cherubic teenager looking for a boyfriend.  The cop on his bicycle nearby stopped me in my tracks and warned me that he would give me a ticket for littering if I did not get on my way.  So I never got to see who my future husband was then….hmmm…if only I was prepared for who he is now. (Just kidding, honey!)

Full Moon In Leo

Now, back to the topic at hand.  Astrologically, the Full Moon sits in Leo today, while the Sun sits in Aquarius.  Dynamic energy all around!   With the Full Moon in Leo, you are encouraged to embrace life with energy and optimism.  Pursue that person who has a special place in your heart, with enthusiasm and passion.  If you are single, go ahead and chat up that girl who lives across the street whom you had been eyeing, or ask that good looking bloke in the office out for a drink.  Yes it is a Friday!, Why not make it an early after-work drink!.  If you are in a relationship, let your sense of spontaneity take you on an adventurous ride full of rich experiences with your other half.  Do something different, Go somewhere different.  Woo her differently and surprise her.

"Till I loved, I never lived enough." ~ Emily Dickinson 

Sun In Aquarius

With the Sun in Aquarius, you might be working on plans to woo and surprise her, or write and re-write your chat-up lines.  However, when it comes to really doing it, you might spend more time scrambling for that piece of paper in your sweaty palms, or rehearsing your lines in the closet than actually doing it!   You might be thinking on one hand, you would love to sweep her up to give her the biggest kiss ever, but that little nagging thing in your head is stopping you just in case she mistook your gesture for you asking for her hand in marriage!

"Thoughts are like an open ocean.  They can either move you forward within its waves, or sink you under deep into its abyss." ~ Anthony Liccione

Mercury Retrograde

To make matters worse, when you have finally summoned your courage to whisper that sweet nothing in her ear, you might address her in the name of your ex-girlfriend.  When you send her that beautiful bouquet of red roses, there might be a possibility that the delivery man might make a mistake with her home address.  When you hold her hands and tell her “Darling, would you like to have a vegetarian dinner tonight?”  She might burst into tears thinking that you are hinting that she is fat.

And why is that so?  It is because we are still in the period of Mercury Retrograde!

"You never know, when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on life." ~ Zig Ziglar

Day 5 in Numerology

Numerologically, today is governed by 5.  Being overly partial to numerology, here is my advice.  The vibrational energy of day 5 is encouraging you to just go with the flow. No one can fault you for your spontaneity.  Even a home-prepared picnic at the park while watching kids fly their kites in the evening, can be so romantic.   If the relationship is newish, take on challenges with courage.  Treat each circumstance as an opportunity presented by the Universe.  Life and Love equally will always have risks.  Instead of focusing on the risks, think of these as an adventurous journey of growth.

 “All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.” ~ Henry Miller
