It’s February and the energies of love, change, and kinship are in the air. What do you want to change in your life? How do you want to be graced by relationship? How do you want to benefit others? This is a month to allow these questions to come up without seeking the answers. By just exercising patience and “living in the question,” the answers will effortlessly find you.
For all of us:
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities—always see them, for they’re always there.” Norman Vincent Peale
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) There are three of you– you, your inner child, and your higher self– and sometimes you’re in conflict with each other. You are strongest when you work as a unit. With your inner child’s ability to see possibility, your higher self’s ability to have faith in the (as yet unknown to you) outcome, and your ability to discern the truth of the information and take strategic action, nothing can defeat you. Cease the battle with your selves and work as a unit. You’ll be an unbeatable force if you do.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Fertility is your middle name! Awareness of this will enable you to “spin gold from straw” in any situation. Use this time to make a list of what you want to bring into your life and look for the signs, circumstances, and people who’ll help you manifest your wishes. Be mindful of how you make use of this information. And as always, express gratitude for your good fortune.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) News flash! You don’t have to know ‘everything’ and you don’t have to solve ‘everything’. Just be open and aware and allow the limitlessness of life’s experiences to guide you. As you do so, you’ll be given all you need to move forward to the next step. This is how new territories are discovered– just go with the flow.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Use these over-bearing days of the current season to objectively sort through and release the effects of last year’s experiences, as well as those of your collective past. The lure of swimming in the sea of emotion is strong now, but it’s counter-productive. By objectively sorting and sifting, you’ll finally know what is valid and what is illusion.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Of course, do take care of what must be done, but for the most part this month, your theme song is Bobby McFerrin’s, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” Daydream, play, be frivolous– those are the important tasks at hand. By so doing, you’ll build the inner strength and compassion you need in order to be at your most creative when spring finally breaks free of winter’s grasp.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Although you thrive more on mental rather than physical action, you’ll benefit most from trying to control the outcome you want. Instead, go inward and spend the next few weeks in deep introspection. As you examine your game plan and contemplate the possibilities, you’ll discover previously hidden information that will help you achieve your desires.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) With your love of order and your natural understanding of checks and balances, the time is right for you to engage your inner financial wizard. This is a good time to nurture your natural desire for acquisition– watch the financial news talk shows and read the finances section in your newspaper and on-line. Whether you initially understand or not, you’ll retain what you learn and be able to use it to your benefit later.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) It’s time for a little fine-tuning. You’ve outgrown what used to be important to your well-being and you need to step up to a higher level of self-appreciation. This is especially necessary if you’ve been a little withdrawn or introspective lately. Go to the park or the beach and leave your social media connections at home– your interactions with the world around you will help you to take that well-deserved next step.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Your perception of the world and the world’s perception of you are changing fast. Don’t try to hold on to what you used to feel, know, or believe was safe and predictable. Accept that the new information is relevant to you and let it show you its truth in its own time.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Your present and your future are here in front of you. You can make the best of this time by taking direct action on your hopes, wishes and aspirations. Make a list of the things you most want to do, be, or have (no more than six!) and rank them by importance. Now, choose any one of those wishes on your list and take the practical steps needed to bring it to fruition. Then choose another wish and work with it the same way. Continue until you’ve worked with all of your listed wishes. When you approach your hopes, wishes and aspirations in this way, they’ll manifest in the most unexpected and rewarding ways.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You, THE EMPRESS and THE SUN are all riding on the same wavelength. Their messages are your messages, too. The forces of the Universe are backing you 100%, so decide what you want and go for it! You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how things unfold. Unexpected help is there for you and will assist you if you call on it.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) This is a prolific time for you. Your hard work is finally in alignment with the energy of the times. Help yourself learn to trust and relax more by spending quiet time within. Meditate, take nature walks, listen to guided meditations– these actions will go a long way in assuring you that you and your world are safer and more profitable than you think.
