December 2011 (25/7) ends the year with a vibration of scientific knowledge that represents a great deal of spiritual wisdom and psychic abilities. Use this month to reflect on how far you’ve come and where you still want to go.
On February 3 Neptune moves into Pisces for a fourteen-year stay. Because Neptune rules Pisces, you could say that Neptune is coming home, and his influence in this sign will be very strong until 2026.
Mars continues being retrograde this whole month until April 14 between 22°34' and 15°10' Virgo. This is a wonderful period to regenerate at a cellular level by becoming aware of the foods we eat and the water we drink, as well as the purity of our actions, thoughts, and words.
So here we are at the beginning of another year, and as we all know, this is no ordinary year. There are several major astrological shifts or alignments in 2012, including Neptune's move into its own sign of Pisces and the Venus eclipse of the Sun, both of which I discussed in December's column.
As I gaze at the planetary configurations for March, I'm reminded of the old fable about the tortoise and the hare. I'm sure you're familiar with this story about the impulsive, quick-paced hare who challenges the plodding tortoise to a race simply because he knows he will win.
March 2012 (26/8) marks the end of the three-month cycle of growing the seeds you clarified and planted between October and December of this past year. It is appropriate that this vibration is one of manifestation. It is time to evaluate your inner garden and see the abundance that is there.
