Inspire Others to Happiness
Mercury turns direct on February 11 at 1?19� Aquarius. Its shadow period will last until March 4 when Mercury will return to the same degree it started its retrogradation on. This particular degree is represented in the Sabian symbols by "an unexpected thunderstorm." Until February 11, this is not the best time to buy or install any software. Miscommunications could abound. We could feel that people are telling us strange stories. On the other hand, this retrogradation is likely to bring old friends we hadn't heard from in a long time back into our lives. We could become focused again on humanitarian projects that had been collecting dust. Forgotten inventions could reemerge. UFO activity could become more intense or more visible. Revolutions, democracy, freedom, individuation, and originality come to the forefront. Sudden answers to our questions bring unexpected turns of events. On February 12, communication will resume to a new normal.
Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until April 8. The degrees it travels until March (18?20��14?25� Leo) are symbolized by "a houseboat party," "a chemist conducting an experiment for his students," "a volunteer church choir singing religious hymns," "the storm ended, all nature rejoices in brilliant sunshine," and "a pageant with its spectacular floats moving along a street with cheering people." The more we remain in integrity, stay in our hearts and our joy, as well as focus on happiness, curiosity of spirit, and generosity in our social contacts, the more our lives will be blessed with a sense of celebration. It is a time to know that our ultimate ambition should be to be happy. No matter what our religious beliefs are or how far we have traveled, now is always the time to be in gratitude with an open mind, a healthy curiosity, and an openness to adventure. As we live our highest life purpose, we also inspire others to happiness.
