SkyCode Horoscopes for February 20-26, 2017


Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.

“Gone Fishin’”

weekly horoscopes, Pisces, solar eclipse, 2017 horoscopes, New moon.

About a decade ago, someone told me about a form of healing called “Soul Retrieval.” If you Google it, you’ll likely find what I’ve found. There’s a good amount of talk about using shamanic techniques to retrieve pieces of your soul lost by trauma or other forms of psychic pain. I can’t speak much more on this since this work isn’t part of my spiritual worldview. But this Sunday’s upcoming Solar eclipse in soulful Pisces reminds me of another way to look at the concept.

I talk about Pisces in this recording. I discuss what the two fishes in Pisces glyph might really be about.

One fish swims at the surface of our consciousness. It’s what we come to know as familiar. But the other fish swims in deeper waters. It’s the fish that swims into our “Akashic” records. Or perhaps is able to travel farther into the cultural mind and perceive coming trends. It’s also the fish we lose sight of easily.

That happens when we lock too much of our desires or feelings deep inside. Or when we tread too much along familiar territory that we don’t mine our souls for deeper insights and feelings. When we lose sight of that fish, though, that doesn’t mean it’s fully lost. It still feeds off something. It becomes more of a shark.

It might feed off your own victimization. This is the fabled story of how Pisceans are known as martyrs, for example. Lashing out for their lack of sacrificial recognition. Or that fish becomes a victimizer in our psyches first. Then it victimizes others in the external world. It becomes a bully. One way or another, that fish will be fed. It will be acknowledged. It must be seen.

This eclipse in Pisces invites us to reflect on that fish that swims in deeper waters. How are you treating it? Are you communing with it in meditation or reflection? Are you feeding it with healthy insights or perceptions? Have you gotten into unhealthy habits from neglecting your inner wisdom and soul too long? Don’t postpone this reckoning. That fish can become the size of a whale and not be seen until it surfaces to feed. No need to have your own epic Moby Dick story when you can go fishing now.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

A solar eclipse caps the first full week of your sign’s season. It’s most important for you to be in touch with the fish that swims deep in your soul. There’s a saying attributed to Jesus from the Gospel of Thomas. “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” It’s time to face truths you’ve not wanted to face. There are likely thoughts, feelings, or habits that have taken up too much psychic bandwidth in your mind. They’re the source of any energy drain you feel now.

Affirmation:
I attend to and address the thoughts, feelings, or habits that I’ve been reluctant to face.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

You might not be able to tell if your senses are on high alert or overwhelmed. Someone unwrapping candy from its package might set you over the top. It’s clearly not the candy wrapper. And it’s too easy to point the finger at the dull hum of stress, though that’s also possible. And putting yourself in a sense-deprivation tank is probably an expensive and useless answer. What’s likely provoking you is something that’s more on the inside than the outside. Perhaps you’ve neglected some project or task for too long. Now, any little thing eggs you on.

Affirmation:
I put in motion what’s been stalled or neglected.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Your crew becomes a dramatic source of hidden power. As corny as it is to hear your “network is your net worth” these days, there’s definitely a lot of truth to it for you. But we’re talking more than net worth here. We’re talking about open lines of credit toward what you can do in the future, not just now. And this doesn’t have to be literal. Yet how much energy you invest in friends and colleagues will pay off in the not too distant future. But give because you believe in the connection, not because you’re certain to receive something. You can’t be sure what you’ll get. You might get more than you’ve given or less. The giving puts you in the better position to receive.

Affirmation:
I generously invest in my crew as an investment in my own future.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

It’s time for you to stop being so damn careful and rational and be more like the “Man of La Mancha.” Yup, be willing to dream the impossible. Yeah, you’ve probably had your fill of frustration. So, it’s not possibly not lovely to hear a call to reach for the unlikely. But here’s why you should anyway. Reaching for the impossible is exactly what’s helped this world become a better place. Can you fail? Yes. But anything less than your best just keeps the world pretty much as it is. You definitely don’t need any more of that. Call back the dream.

Affirmation:
I shoot for impossible to achieve more of what I never thought possible before.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

You may sense that new opportunities will find their way to you through travel, education, or contemplation. All of these are activities that ask you to stretch and reach beyond the familiar. Soak up as much newness as you can. Entertain different points of view or sources of information than usual. (I did say, entertain, not embrace!) Often the first step to having different results in your life is to think different thoughts. Actively seek those.

Affirmation:
I entertain new experiences to embrace more of who I can be.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

According to Jesus or Eminem, there’s wisdom to “losing yourself.” That means it’s a good idea to turn in the crown of who you think you are regularly to make sure it fits who you really are. Often, folks wait for this to happen to them by some humbling experience, like being fired or having your heart-broken from a break-up. But why wait for a harrowing event to do this? You can look closer at yourself to see where you have more fear masking as pride. You might look down on certain colleagues because you really fear looking silly or inarticulate around them, for example. Lose the patina of greatness to let your true self shine.

Affirmation:
I lose the fears I mistake as myself to gain more of who I truly am.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Sometimes we work too hard to groom people into what we think they can be rather than letting them be who they are. This doesn’t have to mean you lose your standards. But it does mean that first you have to see people as they are. You can lead a horse to water, as they say. But you can’t make them drink. Or stop them from pissing in it. Save yourself some frustration and think more about what you will allow from another rather than how much you can change him or her. Knowing your own reasonable boundaries will help you relate with others better.

Affirmation:
I learn more about the bounds I have with others than try to change their limits.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

It’s time to recover a practice, habit, or routine that you abandoned not too long ago. But it’s very important to understand how you abandoned it in the first place. Were your intentions realistic? Did you give yourself enough support for it? Did you really believe that you can do it? One clear sign that you’re up to the task now is if the experience of doing it excites you more than the results. Everybody likes the idea of the beach body. But few love the work that creates one. Find the ways to loving the work. The outcome will feel more like gravy than an ever-receding carrot.

Affirmation:
I fall deeper in love with the work and processes that make me a better person.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Genius is really a misunderstood and wrongly used word. For hundreds of years, genius was a spirit or moment of inspiration that someone possessed, not became. In this sense, everyone had genius. It wasn’t about your IQ. It wasn’t how much recognition you got. It was simply how open you were to that still, small voice within you. Reach out to your genius. Coax it out from deep within by doing creative things, whether that’s making a creative fashion statement or setting time to doodle. Once you get a spark, you can keep up the flow until you feel your fire.

Affirmation:
I nourish the flame of my own genius.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Like any muscle, you have to contract to explode with new energy. Allow yourself to sink into things now. Wanna sink into bed? Do it. Sink into a new show and veg out? Do it. Sink into making improvements around the house? Go for it! But maybe you fear you’ll miss something important by steeping deep into something. This could be true. What’s more important is what you’ll miss if you don’t pull back now. You’ll miss being relaxed enough to spring forth with renewed vigor and focus at an important time later. You’ll miss carving out space to hear your own reliable inner guidance system to direct you to where you must go next. Hear the noise inside louder than what is out there. That can wait.

Affirmation:
I sink deeper into my own interests and needs to spring up farther and higher soon.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

You’re more likely to derive inspiration from being on the move or chatting about the BIG things in life, like how you must have a new pair of sexy shoes that will save the world. Or at least your life. Wait. Did you scoff about getting the shoes? Why? Cuz it’s not as serious as fighting cancer? Or warding off tyrants? Or children dying nearly anywhere in the world? Then that’s probably your problem right now. You think the BIG stuff has to be high impact for “the world.” Well, you are part of the world. If you can’t be inspired or satisfied by sexy shoes, for example, how will you be in a better position to help the entire world? Get a grip, Cappy! Start with the easy-breezy stuff and work your way up, like any excellent fashionista will tell you to start from the feet on up.

Affirmation:
I get better at inspiring “the world” by starting with what fulfills and inspires me now.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

It’s often hard work to make plush dreams come true. But no hard work connected to a dream should drain your soul. You have to check how closely you are connected to your dreams now if you’re steadily losing money and energy. It’s easy to focus so hard on means to an end that you lose sight of the real end. It’s time to look beyond the end of the day if your main goal is to get through the day without choking a customer. Think every day about the positive feelings and experiences that you’d like to have regularly in three years. Then narrow that to how you could have some of those same experiences in three months. Then each day create one opportunity to experience those feelings now. Your more soul-fulfilling life has already begun.

Affirmation:
I create opportunities to manifest the life I desire for my future every day.
