The Tides of Change

Welcome, all to February a month no one will forget. January had the feeling of five years in one month. Many had thrown in the towel by the first week and February won’t be any different. If you thought this month would be easier think again. We have two retrogrades taking place, a full moon that will be center stage for the year, and we get one added day this month. So, take a seat and let’s see how the month will progress. 

On February 3rd Mercury enters Pisces and will be here for quite a bit. At one point it will shift into Aquarius but not until March only to shift back into Pisces once again. Being mindful of our communication skills will be imperative at this time. Some people won’t tolerate this transit at all because everyone seems to be lalaland. Getting straight answers out of people will be quite the challenge and not falling victim to our own fantastical talks in our heads is highly recommended at this time. Everyone will choose to daydream instead of communicating their reality. Imaginations will run wild yet as wild as they are there is basis for the imaginings. Be tolerant. Be patient. Be compassionate.

Venus enters Aries on the 7th bringing an incessant need for passion. Here our needs will be the only concern and how to get them fulfilled instantaneously. Selfishness will be the fuel, some will charm you into giving in, while others will bully you into submission. Doing something useful with this passionate energy will produce creative projects you didn’t even know you had within you. Going after a creative project at this time will produce abundance you would have never imagined. Keep yourself in check, be patient, and do your best to not lead with your ego. Do be fearless but don’t be impulsive.

February 8th we have Juno commencing her retrograde in Libra until June 21st. This outer asteroid is all about marriages, partnerships, unions, pregnancies, birth, and the care of others. Most importantly she governs loyalty. Juno is the wife of Jupiter in Roman mythology in Greek mythology she is Hera Zeus’ wife. Those who know mythology know how unfaithful he was to her. This drove a jealousy in her that made her do some crazy shit in order to make him aware of how his infidelities made her feel. So, with this in mind we all gotta be mindful of others and their feelings. It’s not only about your needs, desires, wants, feelings,etc it’s about you and your partner. Around this time indiscretions will be revealed, disloyalty will be seen, jealousy will be rampant, which could lead to some heavy duty karma. The fact that Juno is in Libra makes things a lot more consequential. Libra governs harmony, relationships, balance, and fairness. These next coming months will bring the changes we need in our relationships. 

The 9th we have our full moon in Leo and this will be felt by all. This Leo moon makes the fire we are all experiencing even more intense. We will roar our demands, we will shout our feelings, our egos will be inflated, and we will obsess with getting what we want and getting it RIGHT NOW! Yet, in the same token our need to protect not only ourselves but those we love will be prevalent. We will have our protective side over take us to the point where it will lead us blindly into a battlefield which is self created. There is nothing wrong with taking a stance, with protecting others, however what exactly are you protecting? Are you even sure what you are protecting wants the protection? This moon will illuminate a lot of things that need protecting but it will also illuminate what needs to be let go of. 

Hopefully, now everyone is getting comfortable with being uncomfortable because on the 15th we get more uncomfortable energy. Uranus semisextile Chiron in such a way that we will be made to feel why we are uncomfortable within ourselves. Uranus is in Taurus and has been there for awhile and will remain there for quite awhile. Chiron is in Aries having been there for awhile as well and will remain there for quite a while also. Both these planets are helping us to see and understand ourselves. Uranus with our comfort levels in money and home. While, Chiron is helping us see the harm we do to ourselves on a day to day basis. On this day it won’t be any different it just will be more amplified. I do see an epiphany happening though that will allow us all to shift into a much higher vibration. Whatever, uncomfortable scenario occurs this day do note it’s happening for your betterment. 

The next day we have Mars entering Capricorn which helps to slow us down. Our moves now will be a lot more calculated, beneficial, and help us get even higher in our goals. We do however have to keep in mind to not be so blatant in how we go about getting into the positions we want to be in. Using people for your benefit will backfire however using the resources you already have will cement your future. At one point or another everyone will feel used and abused and power struggles will occur. Everyone will think they are right and yet everyone will be made aware of how your choice of action brings on whatever consequences because of your choices.

On this day also we have our first Mercury retrograde and it is in Pisces. Take a deep breath because this retrograde is going to feel like it’s never going to end. When it does end it will station direct in Aquarius by this time the majority will have probably been brought to their knees. At this point in the month it will feel like another five years have passed and yet it’s only the 16th of the month. The tides are high which is necessary in order to wash away all the bullshit we have been accumulating for quite some time. Remember how everyone back in December was so looking forward to usherin in a new decade? Well, this retrograde will have everyone missing the decade before. Now, you will see how fragile people really are and how they operate in fear. This is when empathy, compassion, and loving thy neighbor will really show the love we all have for each other. Whatever, illusions, delusions, fears, ego based actions, and jealousy will be made aware in order for you to understand it, heal it, and forgive it. Remember, we still have three planets in Capricorn which is making us ALL aware of the karma in our lives. Of course there are blessings and miracles occurring throughout the month but in order for these occurrence to occur one must do their part in having them materialize in your world. 

The 23rd gives us our new moon in Pisces which can bring some gentleness in all the madness taking place. Envision a mermaid sitting on a rock basking in the moonlight; singing a song just for the moon. You will want to do some gentle nurturing at this time not only for yourself but also for those you care about in particularly the women in your life. Working with the colors pinks, baby blues, or simply working with pastels will bring that femininity in order to feel nurtured. Self care should be made a priority during this time and avoiding any form of escapism as well. Listen to music and be creative with this moon. 

February is a month of change and it be best to swim with the tide instead of against it. Do stop once in awhile to rest in order to catch your breath. The ocean is vast and you can not swim it in a day. You can however learn to float and take your time in order to reach that far away island which by now does not seem that far away at all. 

Namaste

Freedom At A Price(November 2019)

The long cooler days and nights are here making us want to keep warm. Some will venture to warmer destinations in order to escape the cooler weather. Others, will remain indoors allowing the darkness to consume them. Many will be wallowing in self pity while others will be enjoying the slowing down of things. The quiet brings much needed rest and peace. We all need this resting phase in order to continue to set ourselves free of whatever things are still clingy on. Do yourself a favor and don’t drive yourself mad instead find solace in the quiet retreat. 

November 1st Venus shifts into Sagittarius bringing truth, optimism, foresight, and a deeper understanding of those closest to you. This energy feels a lot lighter and playful and as such many will be in this engaging energy. Others, will not like the heat being presented to them because it means they have to face their truths, their negativity, and their actions will be questioned. When any planetary action is in Sagittarius it means the truth is up and center. Yes, things were revealed while Venus was in Scorpio but the truth was not a factor however now it is. Partnerships and relationships of all kinds will be scrutinized. Flying off the handle will happen from time to time and explosive anger will occur. Now, remember if you work with truth and integrity than you really have nothing to worry about. Just remember if you want the truth than be truth and you always receive it. Just keep in mind the truth hurts however it also sets you free. 

The full moon in Taurus is on the 12th shedding light in areas most won’t like the light being illuminated. Others, will thrive during this moon. Again, it all depends on where you are on your personal development and growth. This moon we can see people being selfish, playing martyr, being control freaks, and being overindulgent in every area in their life. On the upside there’s the energy to increase money, to be more disciplined in our lives, to be more grounded, more determined to get things done, and to have more control of ourselves. Depending where you are I would recommend being outside and enjoying the beauty of the moon. If you want to work with candles light green, pink, or white. Make yourself a good meal and go under your blankets and just relax. Life isn’t so bad and that is what this moon is showing us all. 

On the 19th Mars enters Scorpio lighting that fire once again. This energy is helping us to take action with all the things that were revealed last month. Now is the time to move forward leaving behind all the indecisive energy of last month. The Libra energy of last month was teaching us balance and it bought us options we needed to consider. What occurred was a restragerizing of plans. Realizing our chess pieces were not in the correct position. Now, with Mars in Scorpio we gotta be careful not to act on erratic emotions instead we should use our emotions to make intelligent moves for the long term. Emotions are a blessing and a curse at times however the more aware we are of them the better judgement we will have. Don’t let jealousy and ambition be your drive instead consider how everyone involved will be affected. Remember, you aren’t the only one dreaming; we are all in it together. A lot of deep breaths and understanding in order to see everyone is doing their best to conquer their shadow.

Mercury stations direct the very next day and by this time people will be running to the light. Everyone will have noticed that misery does indeed like company but it’s an unnecessary energy to be in. All the shedding that was done during this retrograde was necessary though. It gave much needed light in those dark hidden areas that were hidden for far too long. Thank the heavens it is over but most importantly thank God for those karmic lessons that are now healed. The world is now a much lighter place in the grand scheme of things. 

Venus shifts into Capricorn on the 25th bringing awareness to those who are of value to us. Partnerships and relationships take a much deeper and serious tone during this time. Only because everyone is assessing the value of everyone in their lives. Capricorn’s motto is, “I Use” keep this in mind as everyone is going to realize how they are being used and how they are using others. This transit can get dark very quickly but it will be a great healing time for those karmic lessons we perhaps are refusing to acknowledge. So, again breath deeply and proceed with caution, remember you are ascending not descending. However, if you find yourself lowering yourself for the benefit of others break free and leave it all behind. 

New moon in Sagittarius is the next day and you definitely want to work with this energy. The moon brings opportunities for travel, fortune, learning, and expansion of all kinds. Deep spiritual understanding is in the cauldron as well; so, take a sip of that yummy juice. Purple and blue candles will be great for this moon. Being around animals and children will bring that playfulness which many are in desperate need of. The truth will set you free with this moon. Put those running shoes on and set off to your new found freedom! 

The next day Neptune stations direct after being retrograde since April. Back when this shift happen everything got turned upside down and now everything will be right side up once again. So, get your scuba gear on because this tidal wave is enormous. Many will drown, while others will surf, and yet others will still be caught off guard by it. Nothing is an illusion anymore everything is in reality as it should be. The only delusions would be of those who don’t want to face reality. So, protect yourself and keep in mind crazy attracts crazy. More deep breaths and longer exhales will serve you well around this time because remember the holidays are here. Stress levels are higher around this time than any other time of the year. Do your best to enjoy your family and not be driven crazy by them. 

As the month ends you will be wondering what the hell happened but just know there is still more to come next month! 

Happy Thanksgiving!
