Hello friends. If you identify as Empathic or Highly Sensitive, you will want to take note this month.
First of all, please read my latest blog post on the strong Piscean energies of the month if you haven’t yet, as I feel this will be helpful to you.
In periods of strong Pisces (or any other water sign,) energy the astral superhighway can become more inpacted by psychic “debris,” which may include lower frequencies brought on by drugs and alcohol. Some people will feel uncomfortable with the emotion that can be brought up and may seek to numb it out. We also have a Neptune/Chiron interaction which is powerful for healing of all kinds, and may also be impacting people on deep, emotional levels. This means that in your meditation, healing or ritual work you may be more attuned to this. For those that are highly spiritually sensitive, you may feel it also in your everyday life.
Remember also on its highest level, Pisces energy is about spiritual healing and inspiration. We are uniquely poised to receive our own healing, revelations and other gifts at this time. It is essential that we keep our own frequencies and energy bodies as clear as possible. I recommend DAILY Grounding, Clearing and Centering work for the entire month of February. If you are not familiar with Grounding, please check this great article by Margi Thomas. There are also many great articles on Grounding and Centering that can be found via a Google search.

We also have a unique opportunity this month to be a more universal healing source ourselves, which is delightfully Piscean in and of itself.
Beloved Empaths, the greatest protection is to be a source of BLESSING. As it has been said by many, Love is the greatest protective Source in the Universe. Shine your Light through the oceanic astral realm, filling it up with Grace and the intention that all energies that may be deemed unwholesome will simply be transmuted into a more workable energy form. In this way you also bless and empower yourselves, while also being in service to your brethren. Shanti. – The Keepers, 2.5.13
In my meditation this morning with the Keepers I was shown standing in the oceanic astral that they describe here, in a fluid but tangible tube of Light. It was malleable enough to allow me to still be in the astral, yet I was not directly impacted by it. I invite you to also work with your own Guidance to develop a meditative and/or intentional technique that works for you.
Have a great month Empath/Sensitive friends and remember, we don’t need to get bogged down in it, we can be the Blessing for it! ♥

New Moon in Aquarius: February 9, 2013 – Freedom, Sovereignty & the Road to Find Out
Feb 8, 2013 by Irma Kaye
Well here we have another auspicious New Moon. In the midst of the strong, mystical Pisces energy this month (Mars, Neptune, Chiron and Neptune) and on the same weekend as the Chinese New Year (Year of the Water Snake,) we’ve got plenty to celebrate.
Here is an excerpt from my 2013 Yearly forecast for a bit of review on Year of the Snake energies.
Year of the Water Snake. Snake light side occupations: teacher, philosopher, writer, magician, psychologist. Shadow Side tendencies: lying, laziness, indolence and betrayal. Spiritual attributes: shamanism, healing, integrity, transmutation of poisons, cosmic consciousness. The Water Snake year happens only once every 60 years. The last water snake year was in 1953. The waterways of the planet and fluids of the body and related water organs (bladder and kidneys,) are also highlighted.
In typical Aquarius fashion, this New Moon does have FREEDOM themes attached to it, but there are some more deeper aspects happening with it as well.
As usual, there was a song to go along with this one and it’s by one of my favorites, Cat Stevens (Yusef Islam.) A song of the spiritual journey and a song of innocence, rather likened to the image of the “Fool” in the traditional Tarot deck. A young man leaving behind his familiar world, and venturing out into an unknown future with a sense of adventure and openness to all that experience might offer.
Well I left my happy home to see what I could find out. I left my folk and friends with the aim to clear my mind out. Well I hit the rowdy road and many kinds I met there, many stories told me of the way to get there. – Cat Stevens
On the Road to Find Out – Cat Stevens
Right on cue for our New Moon in Aquarius and our the steady stream of high frequencies coming through, there’s a bit of “shaking up” going on regarding control mechanisms, which is very appropriate.
Beloveds, do understand that for those that identify with the manipulation and attempted control of others, there can be an addictive quality to this, likened to a drug or a “high.” This is a form of what is called “negative pleasure,” as it is based on illusion and falsehood; and only contributes to one’s benefit when they receive the illumination and teaching that it offers, most often when the pattern is eliminated and/or transmuted. For those that are attempting to break free of controls, there is also a certain dynamic in place there as well. There has been over-identification with a “role,” as controlee, so to speak.
Though these change in roles may temporarily be painful, they are very timely and necessary. As you step up and out beloveds, you create more space for your brethren to do the same. This is an essential key of the dawning Aquarian Age, that is an age of personal spiritual sovereignty. You may feel “lighter” both literally and figuratively as these emotional and energetic shackles are cast aside. And so it is. – The Keepers, 2.7.13
The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is at 22 degrees of Aquarius: “A rug placed on the floor for children to play.” Motif: Leaving and returning home again. Apply this degree with a mind to the awareness of the relative nature of rules and boundaries; issues of safety and security regarding home and the world beyond; an unerring sense of homing in on what really counts. – Blain Bovee
With this Moon we have to assess how elastic we can make our relationships, we can stay connected but only with a great deal of flexibility and room to maneuver. – Darkstar Astrology
My feeling is that especially over the past few weeks, and most recently earlier this week with Moon conjunct Pluto (in Capricorn,) are showing us the “cracks” in some of our relationships; especially ones manifesting unequal power and/or control dynamics. With this New Moon we are uniquely poised to create and/or reestablish boundaries that are in alignment with a new Aquarian paradigm and higher frequency model; based on compassion, mutual respect and *shared* power.
New Moon in Aquarius Affirmations: I express my unique self freely. I attract relationships based on appropriate boundaries, freedom and trust. I am open to Divine Wisdom and Illumination. I am a resource for Source.
NOTE: New Moon is 2.9.13 at 11:20 pm PST/2.10.13 at 2:20 am EST.
Happy New Moon and Year of the Water Snake friends! Wishing you all a beautiful and auspicious year.

♥ Are YOU Ungrounded? ♥
Often when you are ungrounded continuously... you may not be aware that you are ungrounded... but others around you may notice. If you are practicing development of your gifts... especially psychic... spiritual grounding is important to do.
The common symptoms of being ungrounded are as follows:
Dizziness or feeling spaced outForgetting appointments or other important thingsMisplacing or losing thingsFeeling generally unwellBumping into things or other general feelings of clumsinessFalling asleep during meditationContinual daydreamingHaving out of body experiences without meaning to Feeling OBE's are not within your controlSensitivity to light and noiseUnable to carry on a normal conversation, including losing track of what you were saying.
Do you think that you are ungrounded? Do you know how to ground yourself? Do you think you need spiritual grounding?
If any of these grounding questions came back with a 'yes', these actions below will help. ♥
* Grounding Your Energy When You're Ungrounded *
Energy Grounding as a preventative measure to avoid health problems, it is important! Make sure that you regularly ground yourself into the Earth Chakra. If you continue to allow yourself to remain ungrounded, a variety of different problems...including those listed above... may develop. Most of these are unnecessary and are totally preventable. So what action can we take?
First it is important to bring your self back to normal. There are a couple of grounding methods that usually work fairly quickly and work well. An easy way to start the process of spiritual grounding is by burning white sage.
1. If you are in the position to be able to sage yourself... begin by smudging yourself. Use either white sage alone or mixed with other fragrant herbs. These are often sold in purpose made smudging sticks.
2. Whenever possible, walk barefoot on the Earth... in a garden or park, or go for a barefoot walk on a beach.
3. Emotional grounding is also important... and walking in the water will aid your emotional body as well. This contact with the Earth is a very helpful... to assist you to begin to ground yourself.
As you do this, you release energy from your body. It is transformed into Earth energy when you discharge it into the Earth below your feet. Of course if you are in a cold climate, and it is winter, walking on the Earth may not be possible.
4. When you are not able to get outside for any reason...do a grounding meditation. Relaxing...centering... grounding... very important actions for your overall well-being. Go within, become centered... then follow through with the following visualization.
♥ Grounding Meditation ♥
A most effective grounding meditation involves a visualization... for spiritual grounding. Sit down in a chair in a relaxed position. It is best done with bare feet and place them flat on the floor... so that you are can feel as connected to the Earth as possible.
As you are sitting there, centered, relaxed and at peace, visualize the following...
Close your eyes... and start by mentally drawing a line from the bottom of your feet down into the Earth... about twelve inches below the sole of each foot. Imagine that any excess energy you have in your body... moves down your legs and out of your body and down into the Earth.
Now, imagine that you are a tree... a beautiful tall, healthy tree. Feel roots descending from the soles of your feet... as you send them down deep into the earth. You go deeper into the cool moist earth, and you begin to take nourishment from it.
You feel your roots growing stronger and you feel your life-force energy deepening and strengthening.You feel a surge of love and gratitude from Mother Earth come up through your roots and into the soles of your feet and up into your body. This Love and Gratitude is for the gift of energy you have given to her.
You spread your arms above your head, and visualize that these are your branches. You feel leaves growing on your branches, strong, healthy and vibrant.
Your branches reach high into the sky... enjoying the warmth of the sun on the leaves... or the coolness of the moon. You reach up to make contact with spirit.... and gather the energy from the Divine Source and allow it to energize and nourish you.
You have had your fill so you allow the balance of the vibrations from the higher realms to make its way down your body (spine)... and slowly filter down your legs.
As you allow this energy to flow out of the soles of your feet...you give thanks for the gift you have been given. You feel gratitude to Spirit for the gift you have been given. You thank Mother Earth for all she does for you... as you give her this gift of your body's excess energy, to be transformed into Earth energy.
When you are ready you slowly open your eyes. You know that you can come here as often as you like and do a spiritual grounding, and that the earth will enjoy the gift you give her of your excess energy. ♥
♥ Crystals To Aid Spiritual Grounding ♥
Use Black Kyanite first before you use any other stones....as it is extremely helpful for grounding. Kyanite comes in range of colors... and when doing spiritual grounding it is highly recommended, that you use any color of Kyanite before other stones.
Although Black Kyanite is available... the most common color is the Blue Kyanite and it is most helpful for grounding.
All colors of Kyanite have the added advantage of aligning your chakras. For grounding and protection, many of the black gemstones and crystals are highly beneficial.
IN:Gratitude for sharing your positive grounded energy...
