The world feels different. Things have really changed on Earth. There is a sense of a shared pain across the planet. It's so interesting to speak with people all over the world and to recognise that we all share this one thing. I know this is a totally negative thing to share, but it has demonstrated that we are in fact really one greater, very connected, collective.
We have the New Moon beginning this Lunar Month
Aquarius is the humanitarian, the one who intellectually understands that we are all part of a collective and that we are actually an interdependent species. We need each other. What happens on one part of the planet does ripple to other parts of the planet. We are connected by air, technology, data etc. and the Aquarian cycle we are moving through, will highlight this even more!
Aquarius is also about innovation, revelation... massive awareness shifts! With this stellar line up, (plus this is happening at Lunar New Year - the beginning of the year for many Asian countries), this New Moon is a potent initiating point! It is not necessarily the best time to begin something new as Mercury is still retrograde, but it is a potent moment to set new intentions!
We will have Mercury go direct in Aquarius February 21st. This may move things forwards. Mercury rules commerce and exchange. This direct phase in Aquarius and the stellium of planets, plus the New Moon, we may see some progressive movement in the world!
We may also see some more revolutionary groups being activated as Saturn and Uranus will go into an exact square around February 16th and intensely for the rest of this month. Basically this aspect speaks to the struggle and tension between new and old paradigms. This is a tense moment and an uncomfortable growth point potential. This aspect will be in play all of this year. This could be a year of cultural revolution.
Then there is a glorious Full Moon in Virgo. Virgo is the Virgin inviting us back to what is sacred and pure. Purity is not about not having mistakes or having no skeletons in the closet - we all have skeletons! Purity is the ability to recognise that you have skeletons and to make peace with this by looking and understanding your skeletons so that they don't creep out and cause chaos in our lives!
This Full Moon is so magical and will be there for healing for many people. This may be a time to make peace with your skeletons or release some of them. Virgo is connected to healing the Earth and medicinal remedies. Again, I truly hope that this sparks positive progress regarding the pandemic!
With mental energy, innovating energy and awakening energy so strong this month, this is definitely a time to connect with practices that ground you. I suggest carving out time to be in nature this month as when there is so much Aquarius energy, the air becomes electric and our nervous systems can fry easily. We must take care of our bodies through this transition.
MAJOR THEMES & DATES
(i) NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS - FEBRUARY 11th/12th
This is a big one! We have a huge stellium in Aquarius. This is a moment to plant in a totally new seed! Jupiter and Venus are conjunct - this is so so so auspicious and is a true blessing! Open your mind to something completely new coming into your reality. Maybe it's a solution to an old problem, maybe it's a break through moment an aha moment!
(ii) MERCURY GOES DIRECT!!! - FEBRUARY 21st
Mercury will be going direct and we can move into a new rhythm. We may see things moving forwards in communications and commerce, hopefully this translates to things shifting positively around the world with restrictions etc.
(iii) FULL MOON IN VIRGO - FEBRUARY 26th/27th
This Full Moon is beautiful. Venus and the sun are in Pisces. There is a delicious spiritual energy in this lunation. Super healing and soothing. Magical even. This lunation is a call back to what is sacred.
I am sharing more and more on <<<Instagram>>> these days so please come over and connect with me there. I am doing more videos and sharing on the cycles!
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>> here to edit.
This Lunar Month has the feeling of stepping into totally new territory. It is as though we are entering into a completely new way of being on Earth and this feels a bit scary and exciting at the same time. Things will never be the same and there is a sense of just so much change and so many unknowns that we must do our best to stay connected to the sacred and to our wise hearts.
The challenge this Lunar Month will be how much can you allow yourself to open your mind, heart, soul - your entire being - fully to this experience. There are new pathways emerging and we now, each one of us no matter our current circumstance, have an opportunity to look at things in a totally new way.
Aquarius wants us to see things differently. I'm getting the image of people who are colour blind being gifted special glasses to see all of the colours. When they put the glasses on, they see what they have always seen but there is so much more now. I can imagine they would go back over and want to look at things they had looked at like this before but now there is so much more to experience and the opportunity to see it all differently.
The key to getting the most out of this time is to embrace it all. Open your mind to the future this month! Open your heart and soul to what wants to emerge and then you will have the eyes to see what is rising up out of the rubble and destruction.
With love always,
