This Lunar Cycle brings a big energetic shift from the strong, traditional and wise elder energy of Capricorn to the essence of Aquarius which is all about the future and New Paradigms!
We have the potential for some pattern interruptions, breakthroughs, flashes of insights and general disruption to the status quo both personally and collectively!
This Lunar Cycle begins with the New Moon in Aquarius which is also the Lunar New Year and Losar. This really feels like the big energetic beginning to 2020.
This lunar month we are having a temporary reprieve from the heavy Capricorn energies as we embrace the future with the New Moon in Aquarius!
However, we are still dancing with the Saturn / Pluto aspect in Capricorn which is pointing towards the ongoing unravelling, unearthing and breaking down of outdated power structures that are based in mostly unquestioned traditions.
If you are still spinning in old ways or still grasping at old forms of security then you may find these times extremely uncomfortable...
We may still be experiencing some of the heaviness but this lunar cycle will bring some much needed perspective and the potential for some really unexpected shifts, potential new insights, pattern interruptions all with the intention of moving forwards into new paradigms!
KEY DATES & THEMES
(i) NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS PLUS THIS IS LUNAR NEW YEAR AND LOSAR!!!!! - JANUARY 24th/25th
> Lunar New Year » New beginnings, potential breakthroughs!
This is celebrated as the beginning of the year for many cultures. This is a potent moment to begin a new cycle on as it is charged with all planets moving direct and is in the sign of Aquarius which is all about the future and new paradigms.
Astrologically - there is an unpredictable energy to this New Moon with great potential for pattern interruptions! We may have much uncertainty coming to the surface. It will be important to stabilise our minds so that we can work with the highest expression and the breaking through potential of Uranus and Aquarius - awakening and shifting our state to a new and higher frequency.
(ii) FULL MOON IN LEO - FEBRUARY 8th/9th
> Totally lit up » heart opening!
This Full Moon has a simplicity to it. It is happening in Leo and may activate the dynamics of sacred leadership and may raise questions like how do we lead from the heart? What is compassionate leadership? Or how can we live more from the heart and what does that actually mean?
It has been tough to keep our hearts open lately, but we must do our best to resist the temptation to go down the rabbit holes of fear. When we go into fear, we disconnect from our hearts. My Tibetan Buddhist teachers say that our true wisdom lives in our hearts. If we are disconnected from our hearts, from our love...we will not be able to access the wisdom needed to evolve ourselves and the world we live in!
(iii) MERCURY RETROGRADE - FEBRUARY 17th - MARCH 10th
> In Pisces » can be spiritual and divine but also confusing and nebulous
Mercury retrogrades are always time to reorganise our thoughts and the way we view life. This will be a moment to review what we have been working on and weave together all of our experiences so far, especially in the spiritual dimensions of our lives. This will be a major influence into the next Lunar Cycle.
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into Ceremonies for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project>>>
The restructuring of power dynamics in the world will come in waves throughout this year. It may be super uncomfortable, but it is necessary. For new paradigms to manifest, the old must fall away!
My wish is that even if you do not engage in Lunar Ritual and Ceremony, these emails offer you a heads up each month and support you in whatever personal development / practice you are working with.
Ultimately, feeling into the rhythm of these ongoing natural cycles supports us to evolve with the grace of being in alignment and harmony with reality! Aligning with nature supports us deeply and brings peace to our hearts.
With love always,
