Welcome to February 2014!
At first it may feel like we are galloping off the starting block as the energy of The Wooden Horses bursts it's way out of the black water snake! Yes! The deep inner transformation is nearing it's end, our skins our shedding, and our intuition and vision is racing towards our crystalline futures! Yes, it's time to herald in the year of the Wooden horse. This is the year we can build ourselves anew, by keeping true to our inner vision and racing towards whatever we see as freedom!
This feels like a powerful forward burst of action, then couple that with Venus turning direct on 31st January, (the day after the black super new moon and Pluto opposing Jupiter) and clash of titans springs to mind. Passion, breakthrough, transformation, no longer being able to keep our heads in the sand. Needing to wake up, face up and shake up. We may feel like our lives are no longer our own, that we become possessed with a passion like never before, to break out, emerge, be and do something different the call for freedom arises like never before!
But still we have retrograde planets, right through until August, so on one level, we can feel these energies building, but we are also being told to hold back for now. Gosh when this power is allowed to be unleashed, my goodness! The build up for the first six months of this year is so strong - I think it is going to be a very interesting year!
So, speaking of Retrogrades, we have the most well known one happening on 6th til 28th, yes, good ol' Mercury Retrograde! So it seems the whole of February may be a time when communication is geared to be far more inner than outer. I feel like we are always being told what NOT to do in a Mercury Retrograde. Don't buy anything, don't sign anything, don't speak, don't move, don't breathe! Okay so maybe the last one is a bit of an exaggeration. But you get my drift right? Personally in the Mercury Retrograde of July last year my life meant I had to sign contracts, move, and buy a computer and a sofa - and I am still here right? In fact I adore my home, computer and sofa! If life tells you have to live at this time (which it will because you are alive) then live! The planets are here to teach us trust and non attachment, not fear and manipulation! So lets not focus on the so called "problems" of Mercury Retrograde please, but what it's useful for. I mean isn't that how life works? That we get better at it if we look at the good in it all? Mercury Retrograde brings with it a very deep, magical and intuitive time. Especially this one which goes through Aquarius (sudden insights, Eureka's and enlightenments) and Pisces ( deep intuition, dreams and spirituality). I don't know about you but with all the Moon's shenanigans last month my dreams have been full on! I am waking up more shattered everyday! I don't expect this to die down just yet! The subconscious is working hard, and if there was anytime to keep a dream journal it is now. Anything to do with "re" in the title is great for a retrograde, so for Mercury (head) retrograde we have -
Regress ( yes good for p
ast life regressions! Here's my MP3 for that here! http://www.tiffanycrosara.com/meditation-mp3s-and-cds.html
Okay I think you get my drift? Mercury Retrograde is great for powerful internal messages, dreams, insights, breakthroughs, and if you have to live externally then take a deep breath, trust the timing and disattach from the need of having things turn out a certain way!
On Valentines day we have a full moon in Leo, and Leo rules the heart! So what we see this Valentine's day is a passionate, dramatic, grand, romantic energy, watch it with the full moon, because it could take us one of two ways…
1) We could feel like royalty, wining, dining, romancing, loving, lording it proudly, roaring!
2) We could curl away and lick our wounds.
No half heartedness here, whatever you feel you will feel with your whole heart. So if you don't have a partner to share it with, then get out there and share the love you have in your heart. Maybe it will be something like working in a soup kitchen for the day, or just making the decision to go for a walk and smile and send love to everyone you pass….
The Sun enters Pisces on 18th so things may get even dreamier! I am so feeling The Six of Cups Tarot Card for this month, so it will be very interesting to see if it comes up in this month's Youtube Tarot reading part of The AstroTarotChannel. To me that card signifies powerful nostalgia and daydreams.
On the last day of February Mercury goes direct! Hooray! Well not quite! Mercury goes into storms and shadows as it gears up to change direction so always good to not rush out of the starting gates, and particularly as we have a Jupiter/Uranus square the day before, bumpy lift offs come to mind. And also bear in mind there are no new moons this month! Everything feels like it's about deep, internal, old, stuff, sometimes we just have to immerse ourselves, be a hippopotomouse and dive right in!
The new Moon is on 1st March - in Pisces, so there you will start to see the new energy emerging from the deep Piscean journey of March.
Remember the two fishes of Pisces - "they swim both ways!" :)
