January Astrology Update: Accelerated Change

2021 will be a future-oriented year: during the upcoming months, we will be encouraged to reflect upon the past and to decide what to keep and what to let go of. Liberation and deconditioning will be key themes of the year that has just started. January, in particular, will be a month of acceleration and fast change. We will have the chance to become aware of where we are still holding ourselves back from embodying our uniqueness. We will be invited to reflect upon and break free from what is preventing us from living authentically and sharing our truth.

Throughout the entire 2021, especially during January and February, we will have a lot of emphasis on the archetype of Aquarius. During this time, all of us will be encouraged to embody the higher expression of this sign. Aquarius teaches us to experiment without being afraid of making mistakes, to connect with like minds and learn from each other, to embrace the future with a sense of curiosity, and to release the unnecessary expectations and judgments we place on both ourselves and others.

Let’s have a closer look at the main planetary events we will experience throughout the upcoming month.

 

Mars enters Taurus

Jan 6, 2021, 05:27 PM ET

Mars concludes its long six-month transit through its home sign Aries and finally enters Taurus. The shift from Cardinal Fire to Fixed Earth is inviting us to keep working toward our goals and to consolidate the projects we started. Mars in Taurus is slow and steady, and it’s an energy that facilitates continuous and sustained effort. This transit will support all those long-term endeavors that require constant commitment and dedication. During the six weeks journey of Mars through Taurus, our focus becomes more internalized, and we naturally invest more attention towards our relationship with ourselves and our physical body, while we reflect on the nature of our needs, our desires, and our values, and try to become more self-reliant.

 

Mercury enters Aquarius & Venus enters Capricorn

Jan 8, 2021, 07:00 AM ET & Jan 8, 2021, 10:41 AM ET

On the same day, two planets are changing signs within a few hours one from the other. Mercury joins Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, while Venus joins the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury in Aquarius creates a bridge between our individual minds and the Hive mind: our thought processes will be more focused on the big picture and the collective needs, while our capacity for creative thinking will be maximized, potentially leading to groundbreaking ideas, important discoveries, and significant innovation.

On the other hand, Venus in Capricorn will highlight our need for stability and security. The influence of Venus will play out in both the financial arena and in our love and social life. Venus in Capricorn desires commitment and stability, loves to know what to expect. While this may be at odds with the Aquarian energy available, Venus in Capricorn will help us ground and will inspire us to make something tangible and concrete out of the insights and visions that pop up in our minds.

 

New Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto; Mars square Saturn

Jan 13, 2021, 00:00 AM ET

On January 13, the Sun and the Moon join forces in Capricorn and they meet Pluto: this New Moon is happening on the same degree where the Saturn-Pluto conjunction took place, exactly one year ago. This cosmic event may bring up themes that first emerged at the beginning of 2020, and highlight similar issues. The New Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto puts the spotlight on how we unconsciously try to generate security in our lives and reminds us of the importance of aligning our inner and outer reality, by building structures that honor the changes that have been taking place in our inner world.

Meanwhile, we witness the last Mars-Saturn square of a cycle of three, that started back in August 2020 and, until now, involved the signs of Aries and Capricorn. This planetary configuration is quite tense, we are encouraged to find healthy ways to channel and express the energies of frustration and anger. The invitation is to avoid repressing difficult feelings and accept the inevitability of the limitations we can’t yet overcome.

 

Uranus stations Direct in Taurus

Jan 14, 2021, 03:36 AM ET

Uranus has been in retrograde motion since August 2020: as the planet of revolution begins moving forward again, we will experience two weeks during which all celestial bodies are direct. During the upcoming days, we are likely to notice a general sense of acceleration: Uranus is stationing in a square aspect to Jupiter and it is soon going to conjunct Mars. Even though their alignments will be exact only in a few days, we will feel their influence earlier.

These aspects may bring up themes related to the ongoing square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus, lasting for the entire 2021, and emphasize the conflict between the old system and the new paradigm. Uranus stationing direct in Taurus may reflect surprising events affecting the global economy, personal financial matters, and important changes in our value system. This transit invites us to embrace the future without holding back to the past, to be unconventional, and to connect with a sense of inner stability and security

 

Aquarius Season begins

Jan 19, 2021, 03:40 AM ET

The Sun joins Jupiter, Saturn, and Mercury and the emphasis on the archetype of Aquarius increases even more. During Aquarius season, we will have five planets transiting the sign of the Water Bearer. The Sun will highlight the necessity to discover and express our uniqueness: Aquarius season will invite us to break free from social and parental conditioning, self-imposed limitations, and fear of other people’s judgment. During the Sun’s journey through Aquarius, we may feel drawn to reflect upon the past and decide what to preserve and what to leave behind. We will notice a strong desire to connect with like-minded Souls who recognize and honor our talents and our vision, to be part of a community that honors and celebrates our individuality and represents a safe space to express it.

 

Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus

Jan 20, 2021, 3:37 PM ET

The conjunction between Mars and Uranus, active for the entire week, invites us to find our own, unique way to express all those functions related to Mars, such as instinct, assertion, sexuality, physicality, getting things done. Their alignment encourages us to reflect upon our desires and question them. Are they authentic or another byproduct of our conditioning?

This configuration can bring major breakdowns and breakthroughs and may reflect sudden and unexpected changes. However, Mars-Uranus contacts also represent extremely electric and impulsive energy that can easily get out of control: during these days, we need to be extra mindful of our reactions.

 

Full Moon in Leo; Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn

Jan 28, 2021, 02:16 PM ET

The Full Moon in Leo represents another intense cosmic event: as the Sun-Moon opposition is taking place, Venus is exactly conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, while Neptune in Pisces is in an exact square aspect to the Lunar Nodes. Dynamics of manipulation, power, and control can be uncovered and exposed.

We may find out that what we believed to be true was false, and experience a sense of disillusionment and confusion. Nonetheless, the Full Moon in the sign of Leo will encourage us to come back to our creative essence, to cultivate our unique talents, and develop our personal voice. This cosmic event will help us transmute the intense emotional energy in a cathartic way and remove more of the layers that hold us back from authentic self-expression.

 

Mercury stations Retrograde in Aquarius

Jan 30, 2021, 10:51 AM ET

At the very end of the month, we experience the first Mercury retrograde of 2021. Mercury retrograde is happening in an Air sign for the first time since 2016 and will increase the pressure on the archetype of the Water Bearer. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius will invite us to reflect, review, reassess, redefine, and reexamine all the events that took place during the month that is coming to a head.

This cycle, lasting until February 20, encourages us to go inward and revisit our habitual thinking patterns and communication habits. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius represents an invitation to question the way we have been conditioned to perceive reality, and to let go of ideas and ideologies that don’t reflect our personal truth.

 

January 2021 Astrology Update: Our Invitation

 

After an extremely unusual and transformative year, 2021 has the potential to offer us plenty of opportunities to concretize our visions and make our dreams come true, if we resist the temptation of sliding back into old patterns, old paradigms, and old ways of being. We are encouraged to keep moving towards the future even if we don’t yet have a clear idea of how it will look like.

Yes, walking in the dark and moving into unknown lands can be scary. There is no doubt: dealing with uncertainty is extremely stressful. Nonetheless, we can choose to consciously reframe the way we perceive our reality and make the most out of our current situation. We can see any challenges we encounter as gateways that open up new possibilities, leading to deeper personal growth and allowing us to live a more authentic life. In 2021, we have the opportunity to break free from the old structures and create better ones: it’s up to us to make the best use of it.

If you haven’t already, we invite you to get your January Horoscope & 2021 Horoscope to find more personalized guidance and what January and 2021 holds for you.

September 2020 Astrology Forecast – Energy Update

September 2020 is going to be all about adjustments, improvements, and experimentation. We begin the month with a Full Moon in Pisces, that brings up the emotional intensity and the sense of chaos and confusion that we are already collectively experiencing. Issues that first manifested when the New Moon in Pisces took place, on February 23, 2020, may emerge again: we can now gain clarity and reach a deeper understanding.

The highlight of the month is Mars in Aries stationing retrograde on September 9. Until Jupiter stations direct on September 12 we are going to have 7 planets in an apparent backward motion. During these days, we are likely to feel more inclined to spend time alone, rest, and reflect on our choices. The main invitation is to reassess, revisit, and review our approach to what has been coming up in our lives. During this time, we have the chance to become aware of our self-imposed limitations and implement new strategies to overcome them.

At the end of the month, Saturn is stationing direct too: this event will bring an energetic shift that has the potential to facilitate our decision-making process. After Saturn stations direct, we are likely to feel a strong need to concretely move towards our goals, commit to what we take on, take responsibility for our lives, and build solid foundations for our future.

 

Full Moon in Pisces

September 2020 Astrology

We start the new month with a powerful Full Moon in Pisces, and on the same day we have several other interesting aspects. Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, Sun in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus, Venus in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn, and the Full Moon forms a sextile to Uranus. The influence of the trines and the sextile is suggesting the possibility of positive and unexpected change and increases our ability to communicate what we want and need effectively. The Venus-Saturn opposition reminds us to value ourselves and our capacities.

This aspect invites us to believe in our inherent worth and in our ability to form healthy and supportive relationships.

 

Mercury enters Libra

Mercury leaves its home sign Virgo: his transit through Libra is lasting until September 27. During the upcoming weeks, the planet of communication and logic will invite us to seek harmony, balance, and compromise in all our relationships. Diplomacy, tact, and negotiation are likely to be easier: this is a great time to work on establishing healthy and respectful communication habits. Beware of developing people-pleasing tendencies: don’t sacrifice your needs and desires for others, but rather seek the middle ground.

 

Venus enters Leo

September 2020 Astrology

Just a few hours after Mercury starts transiting Libra, Venus enters Leo: these energies have a natural affinity and they work wonderfully together. Venus will be in Leo until October 2. This transit reminds us that we have the right to shine and be seen and to show our creative talents to the world: Venus in Leo invites us to dedicate time to what we are passionate about. Romance will be highlighted during this transit: many of us will have the chance to meet new people with common interests that represent an inspiring and uplifting influence.

 

Mars in Aries stations Retrograde

Mars has been in Aries since June 27, and he is going to be in the sign he rules until January 6, 2021. The God of War will be retrograde until November 13, stimulating us to reassess our plans, reevaluate our decisions and the way we habitually take action. The higher purpose of this transit is to gain a deeper understanding of our desires and the motives behind them. Mars retrograde invites us to explore our instinctual needs and wants, in order to achieve a more profound awareness of what we are fighting for and why.

 

Jupiter in Capricorn stations Direct

Jupiter is finally stationing direct after being in retrograde motion since May 14. The planet of luck and expansion slowly begins moving forward again, and we have the opportunity to gain clarity around the issues that manifested during his retrograde phase. Jupiter stationing direct in Capricorn will once again put the spotlight on themes of ethics and morality, and expose corruption, oppression, and abuse of power. His goal is inspiring us to reflect on the right use of authority, prestige, fame, and money.

 

New Moon in Virgo

The New Moon in Virgo begins a lunar cycle where self-improvement, health, and healing will be the main themes. Sun and Moon trine Saturn in Capricorn inspire us to take good care of ourselves, to consistently make daily choices that support our health. On the same day, Mercury in Libra is forming an exact square to Jupiter in Capricorn, and he will soon square Pluto and Saturn too. These aspects symbolize the need to find constructive ways to communicate with other people, according to the social context and the moment we are in. Their invitation is to become conscious of the power of words.

 

Sun enters Libra

September 2020 Astrology

This year Mabon or the Autumn Equinox is taking place on September 22: Libra season is officially here! Libra represents the neverending search for harmony and balance. Through the sign of the scales, we learn to relate with others as equals. This is an ongoing work in progress: as a Cardinal archetype, Libra is starting a new cycle of growth, learning through trial and error and direct experience. Throughout Libra season, we will be encouraged to strive for healthy compromise and refine our negotiation skills to find win-win solutions that make everyone involved happy.

 

Mercury enters Scorpio

When the planet of communication, critical thinking, and logic travels through the sign of the Scorpion, he invites us to observe the situation thoroughly and let others speak first. Mercury in Scorpio is naturally suspicious and prefers studying people from a distance before speaking or making a move. This transit helps us deepen our perspective of the world around us and allows us to understand others’ motives and intentions. Mercury in Scorpio invites us to ask specific and direct questions to get to the bottom of any issue.

 

Saturn stations Direct in Capricorn, Mars retrograde square Saturn

September 2020 Astrology

Saturn has been retrograde since May 10: he was already in Aquarius and moved back into Capricorn on July 1. Saturn is finally stationing direct: he will be transiting the last degrees of Capricorn for the last time before entering Aquarius again on December 17. We now have the last chance to integrate the lessons that came up throughout the past two and a half years, when Saturn has been in Capricorn. On the same day, Mars retrograde in Aries is squaring Saturn for the second time within a month. This aspect may cause frustration and tension, and themes that first came up at the end of August could emerge again. The invitation is to be mindful, avoid reacting on impulse, and discover healthy ways to process and release difficult emotions.

Comment below with what resonated with you the most, and what you are excited about in September! Sending lots of love and blessings your way. Happy September!

Venus square Neptune: Lifting the Veil of Illusions

On July 27 at 1:47 PM EST Venus in Gemini forms an exact square to Neptune in Pisces.

Venus has been in Gemini since April 3, and she is entering Cancer on August 7. Neptune, on the other hand, has a much longer cycle since he’s further away from us. The planet of Spirituality and Mysticism is in his home sign Pisces since 2012 and will enter Aries only in 2026.

Venus and Neptune have been squaring on and off for a while. We are now witnessing the last of three exact squares. The first time the two planets aspected each other, on May 4, they were both moving direct. When the second square happened, on May 20, Venus was retrograde and Neptune direct. Now, Venus is direct while Neptune is retrograde.

This celestial alignment represents the completion of a cycle. It is likely to bring clarity around issues that have been going on since the first square took place. Reflecting on the events that happened since then can offer us very relevant insights around the themes coming up during the next few days.

 

Gemini and Pisces: Contrasting Energies

 

Neptune is at home in Pisces, and he is now in its yearly retrograde cycle, another factor that increases our need for solitude and introspection. Neptune in Pisces is meditative and elusive, soft and delicate: the God of the Oceans inspires us to hide from the world, to seek refuge and solace in our inner sanctuary.

Venus in Gemini, on the other hand, brings up completely different energies: extroverted and curious, she invites us to be out and about, meet new people, exchange ideas and thoughts. Venus in Gemini is a social butterfly who wants to communicate, have fun, and experience life through human interactions.

venus square neptune

Any square reflects some amount of inner conflict and tension: we need to find a compromise between contrasting energies. In this case, we are trying to balance our necessity to introspect, dedicate time to our spiritual practices and personal growth, and our desire to expand our social circle, interact with people, and learn through relationships with others.

 

Venus Neptune Aspects: in Love with Love

 

In Astrology, Neptune is considered the higher octave of Venus: this means that it is the higher vibration of a denser expression. Venus correlates to romantic love, relationships, beauty, and art. Neptune brings beauty and artistic expression to a spiritual, pure, sacred level: it corresponds to divine inspiration, transcendence, as well as unconditional love.

A danger with Venus-Neptune aspects is falling in love with love. Idealizing people and situations during this transit is extremely common, and daydreaming is an ongoing temptation.

venus square neptune

As the archetypes of unconditional love and romantic love are coming into contact, it is easy to focus only on potential positive outcomes. During these days, we may forget to take into account someone’s flaws, we could have some difficulties grounding into an objective perspective of reality. When we make choices, we may forget to consider possible obstacles and challenges, or neglect some important details.

On July 27, when the exact square takes place, the Moon is in Scorpio: she invites us to dig deeper, to ask questions, to investigate. The Moon reminds us not to be satisfied with superficial explanations and emphasizes the need to understand the real motivations and intentions of other people, the actual meaning behind situations and events.

 

Lifting the Veil of Illusions

 

The square between Venus and Neptune inspires us to become aware of our assumptions in relationships. It encourages us to let go of the need to know what to expect from our partner, friends, and family members, and to ask ourselves: What are we doing together? Do I really want to be with this person? What do we have in common? Is this relationship supporting my growth?

The purpose of these questions is to inspire us to invest our energy, time, and undivided attention in our most meaningful connections. For this to be possible, we need to let go of the relationships that are not supporting our personal evolution anymore.

We now have the chance to see people’s true colors and make decisions accordingly. Our biggest challenge is overcoming the sense of confusion and disorientation that all Neptune aspects often provoke.

Venus square Neptune is a planetary alignment that has the potential to help us lift the veil of illusions for our highest good. This transit can reveal to us the real reason why certain people or situations keep showing up in our lives, and give us the opportunity to break the pattern.

 

Venus square Neptune: Trust the Universe 

 

Besides being the planet of relationships, Venus correlates to what we value, to our level of self-worth, and to what we do for a living, to our form of income. The square to Neptune may bring up some confusion and disorientation in these areas of life. 

The tension of the current square implies a crisis in action: while Venus in Gemini wants to know it all, Neptune in Pisces keeps reminding us that we have no idea of what’s actually going on.

We are in a moment of history where our value system and our financial situation are under pressure. We may need to find another form of income or to learn new skills, in order to adapt to the new socio-economic conditions. Right now, we may have the feeling we don’t know where to start and what to focus on: it is perfectly normal.

With Venus in Gemini, the mind is always active, while Neptune in Pisces is trying to switch it off. This transit encourages us to become comfortable with uncertainty, to explore creatively any tension, nervous feelings, and uneasiness coming up. 

Neptune is about allowing Source to express through us. He invites us to connect with a divine source of inspiration, something bigger than ourselves, rather than trying to solve our problems through logic and rationality only.

venus square neptune

Neptune reminds us that all is well. The God of the Oceans helps us to consider the larger picture, to trust the Universe and be ok with not knowing. The current transit invites us to cultivate a sense of faith, and the belief that whatever happens is what we need for our growth.

Leo Season 2020: Open your Heart and Shine

Leo Season 2020 – From July 22 to August 22 the Sun will travel through his home sign, Leo. With this transit, we are likely to notice a significant increase in our vitality, enthusiasm, and cheerfulness. We finally take a break from the heavy emotional intensity of the Eclipses and Cancer season: the energy gets lighter.

As soon as the Sun enters Leo, he brings up the positive vibes and boosts our passion and zeal. We are all going to feel this shift: when the Sun is in the sign he rules, his energy is at its maximum, stronger, and more powerful. 

Leos are well-known for their love for life and their ability to see the positive side of any situation: as he transits through his home sign, the Sun invites us all to shine bright. 

During Leo season, we are encouraged to connect with our playfulness, enjoy ourselves and have some fun. The upcoming month invites us to celebrate the fact that we are alive, cultivate a feeling of joy, and be grateful for what we have, despite the inevitable problems and challenges we all encounter.

 

Sun in Leo: Open your Heart and Shine

 

The Sun is the center of our Solar System: without his light and power, there would be no life on Earth. This is why both Leo and the Sun are associated with our life force energy and our overall vitality. The transit of the Sun through the sign it rules is supporting the energy levels of all human beings, plants, animals, and lifting the frequency of the entire Earth.

Leo corresponds to our heart center: this sign is correlated to generosity, warmth, and benevolence. For the next month, the Sun puts the spotlight on these qualities: we are invited to make the conscious choice to open our hearts, say yes to life, and to all the amazing possibilities it can offer.

leo season 2020

The Sun in Leo reminds us to be confident in ourselves and our capacities. Leo inspires us to take the spotlight, step onto the stage without asking for permission, and show our talents to the world. Leo invites us to express ourselves unapologetically and fearlessly. The Sun encourages us not to be afraid of our own light but rather share it with others. Doing so, we inspire them to shine bright too and we help them reconnect with their True Self.

Leo is also the sign ruling romance: during the upcoming month, many of us may feel inspired to create brand new romantic connections. We may start dating someone after a long while being single, or give new life to an existing relationship, as we feel the need to spend more quality time together and nurture a sense of romanticism and belonging.

 

Fixed Fire: Creativity, Focus and Stamina

 

Leo is a Fire sign with strong Yang and Fixed qualities: it is a courageous, brave, daring archetype. The transit of the Sun in Leo is the kind of energy we want to work with to increase our creativity, focus, and stamina, and to move forward in our self-discovery journey.

Together with Mars in Aries, the Sun in Leo is going to motivate us to take continuous and focused action towards our goals, ambitions, and dreams. They inspire us to improve every day and to get closer to the life we aspire to have. Sun and Mars will form an exact trine on August 16, encouraging us to make the most out of their intense fiery combination.

Our inspiration is going to be enhanced throughout the whole Leo season, as the Sun is the source of our creative energy: this is a great time of the year for artists. In particular, the Full Moon in Aquarius coming up on August 3 highly intensifies our inventiveness, originality, and capacity for innovation: we may come up with incredible ideas during these days.

 

Six Planets Retrograde: Introspection and Artistry

 

Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, and Chiron are still retrograde throughout the whole Leo Season and Uranus will join them too on August 15. During the last days of Leo season, we are going to have six planets in an apparent backward motion, which is a very rare event.

Retrograde energy tends to be directed inwards and it is not action-oriented. It invites an ongoing and deep questioning of ourselves and life, which highly supports creativity and artistry. 

leo season 2020

The transit of the Sun through Leo inspires us to use introspection and reflection as tools to discover and experiment with new ways of self-expression. The retrograde planets during Leo Season are a wonderful opportunity to integrate and elaborate creatively those feelings and emotions we can’t explain or understand with linear thinking.

 

Leo Season 2020: Building Bridges between Heart and Mind

 

On July 22, when the Sun enters Leo, we have another interesting aspect which will be setting the tone for Leo Season. Mercury in Cancer is forming an exact sextile to Uranus in Taurus, encouraging us to develop an objective understanding of what happens to and around us.

While the Sun in Leo inspires us to welcome both challenges and rewards with open arms, Mercury and Uranus are supporting us in the mental integration and interpretation of what comes up. The sextile between them inspires us to cultivate objectivity and detachment: it helps us not get too caught up in our personal story, but rather see the bigger picture.

Mercury enters Leo on August 5 and forms an exact conjunction with the Sun on August 17. They invite us to build bridges between our Hearts and our Minds, opening both to new perspectives, opportunities, and possibilities.

The transit of these two planets through Leo grants us the power, the stamina, and the intelligence we need to overcome any obstacle and make the most out of each experience.

Happy Leo Season! Sending love and blessings your way. Please share this with others and comment below with what resonated with you the most.. 🙂

February 2020 Forecast – Energy Update

As we recover from some of the anxiety and restlessness that came from the influx of energy and several heavy alignments this past month, we enter into a month dedicated to harmony and balance. February will be a much lighter month for us energetically as we are asked to have patience and faith in all that the Universe has in store for us.

With this being a leap year, we will have an extra day this month on February 29th. The numerology code associated with this day is the number 8. This code represents abundance and balance. It represents the divine and infinite potential of the soul. Through every cosmic alignment and celestial shift this month, we are reminded of this – we are infinite. This is a month of powerful spiritual growth and awakening. 

 

Full Moon in Leo – Abundance and Culmination

 

On February 8th, we are blessed with a bountiful Full Moon in Leo. This Moon is also referred to as the Snow Moon. Compared to the incredibly heavy and potent Full Moon Eclipse that we experienced in January, this Full Moon in Leo is going to feel light, easy, and breezy. This is an alignment completely surrounded by loving energy as we are being supported by the Universe in all of our endeavors.

We will feel stronger than ever before and will feel a confidence we have been praying for. Sometimes all we need is that innate recognition that we are enough just as we are. That recognition that we are on the right path and we are right where we are supposed to be on our divine journey.

This Full Moon will carry with it strengthening vibrations and abundant energy and is a culmination of all that we have been working to accomplish since August of last year. We are being guided to release that which has been weighing us down and holding us back. This Full Moon will allow us to bring closure to past issues that continue to linger. We are being led to feelings of complete inner peace as we appreciate just how far we’ve come and where we stand at this very moment. 

 

Mars in Capricorn – Time to Pause and Reflect

 

Mars moves into Capricorn on February 16th, adding to the growing number of planets aligned with earth signs. Mars is the planet of motivation and while Capricorn traditionally exudes ambition, the sheer number of planets carrying earth energy during this time will make us feel a bit sluggish. We may feel as though we are dragging our feet and struggling to find motivation.

While this alignment can sometimes feel heavy, this heaviness is reminding us that sometimes we must take a step back and reflect rather than moving forward blindly towards what we think we must do. We get so caught up continuously trying to stay in motion, believing that if we are not taking major strides forward that we are depreciating any effort we have made thus far.

This is not the case and this alignment is here to remind us to give ourselves permission to pause. Taking time to stop and reflect can ultimately bring us the motivation that we desire. Remember that Mars in Capricorn is here to support our greatest ambitions. If we remain patient, we will be blessed beyond belief.

 

Mercury Retrograde – Listen to Your Intuition

 

On February 18th, we are faced with Mercury Retrograde. This alignment will last until March 10th and will see Mercury go through Pisces and Aquarius on its journey. While most people tend to shy away from Mercury Retrograde energy because it can sometimes bring about big changes, the Retrograde this month is here to offer divine guidance along our journey.

Similar to the lesson we are being taught by Mars moving into Capricorn a day prior to this Retrograde, we are being encouraged to slow down and not act out of impulse. We are being guided to rely on our more subtle senses as we navigate the heightened energy that Mercury Retrograde brings.

Our gut feelings and intuition will be our most powerful tools during this time. We are reminded not to doubt ourselves. Everything that we experience, think, and feel is our soul’s way of communicating with us our deepest truths. Listen to that inner voice as you allow the abundant energy of the Universe to flow through your being. We will be showered in inspiration and increased creativity as align with and express who we truly are.

 

Sun in Pisces – Completion and Celebration

 

As the Sun moves into Pisces from February 18-19, we enter into the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, signaling the end of a cycle. We have gone through all the phases of the Sun and have reached a time of completion and culmination. As we tie up loose ends and begin to harvest all we have sown during this last zodiac cycle, we enter a time of celebration.

Reflect back on all you have been through during cycle, all the lessons that have been learned, the challenges that you have preserved through, the blessings you have received, and the progress you have made. Pisces season is an incredibly spiritual time that asks us to look back on the past year as we get ready to welcome a new cycle. 

 

Jupiter sextile Neptune

 

With Jupiter sextile Neptune on February 20th, we continue this journey of reflection and spiritual work. Neptune is the planet of spirituality and Jupiter is the planet of abundance. Therefore, it is only natural that this is a time of incredible spiritual growth and powerful messages from the Universe guiding us along our paths.

2020 is a year dedicated to spiritual awakening. This is evident by the fact that we will experience this Jupiter sextile Neptune conjunction three times during the course of this year. The frequency of this conjunction is incredibly rare, meaning that we are being asked to really pay attention to the strong and powerful message that the Universe is sending us.

Jupiter sextile Neptune carries with it a beautiful energy. It is a reminder that we are always being supported and guided. It brings about peace and the deep healing of old wounds. We are being protected on our divine journey as we are guided to not only raise our vibration but also our collective consciousness to incredible new heights. This energy will be felt for quite some time to come.

 

New Moon in Pisces – Sensitivity is Power

 

On February 23rd, we will experience a New Moon in Pisces, ushering in soothing vibrations. We will feel a heightened sensitivity to all that is around us and will feel our normally hard exteriors soften. We are reminded to be pliable. As we conclude one lunar cycle, we enter a time of grand new beginnings.

This will be a powerful time for intention setting as we will see with complete clarity where our heart is guiding us. Pisces energy awakens a gentler way of being. It shows us that not only is it okay to be in tune with our softness but that there is also incredible power in this. As we surrender to the Universe, we will be overcome with the acceptance of self and deep self-love. This is a New Moon filled with hope.

 

February – Time for Being

 

After two months filled with heavy alignments and eclipses, February will feel magical. This warming month is here to shower us in light energy as we begin to soften some of the harsher energies that have surrounded us. We are reminded to take time to pause, listen, and reflect as we walk along our true life’s path in pursuit of our Higher calling.

This month, the Universe is guiding us to get in touch with our inner worlds. We spend so much of our time in a rush. This is a time for being, not doing.

First New Moon of 2020 – January 24

On January 24th, we are greeted by a New Moon in the airy and intellectually fueled sign of Aquarius. This is a time for rebellion and one in which we set out to walk our own true path without apology. We are being reminded to stay fluid, go with the flow, and embrace any changes that may come our way.

 

You are on the cusp of transformative and inspiring moments

 

This Aquarius New Moon represents the end of one lunar and opens the gateway to the next as we set our intentions for the month to come. With the Sun, Moon, and Mercury all in Aquarius, we are being showered in an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. Regardless of your natal chart, this Aquarius New Moon energy will be felt deeply.

This is a sign of change as we learn to question old habits, beliefs, and behaviors and use the creative and out-of-the-box energy of Aquarius to help you move forward with new and inventive ways of making progress. You are on the cusp of transformative and inspiring moments that will feel life changing. As we set our positive intentions for the next lunar cycle, we leave old energy where it belongs – in the past.

This is the time to make a fresh start, create fresh goals and initiatives, and move forward with confidence. Don’t be surprised if changes in your career, relationships, and goals appear. The Universe is providing us with the clarity to align ourselves with our true path as we plant seeds in our lives that will begin to bloom in the coming months.

 

Follow your intuition, you are aligning with your Higher self and your true life’s calling

 

With the Aquarius New Moon square Uranus, which is in Taurus, expect to feel some uncertainty as you feel an innate calling for change. This alignment can often trigger unpredictable behavior from us as our inner rebelliousness awakens. You know in your heart of hearts that some changes need to be made. You have been trying to find harmony and rebalance your energy, but something hasn’t felt right.

During this cosmic alignment, we are being called on to follow our intuition and break free from the constraints that we feel we have in our lives. This desire for freedom can bring sometimes bring about anxiety, uncertainty, and restlessness. If you have felt more abrupt in your interactions with those around you or have been experiencing mood swings, just know that you are not alone.

With the New Moon square Uranus, our souls are trying to regain their balance. We have recently experienced some heavy alignments filled with big lessons and we are still reeling from this energetic rollercoaster. Don’t be too hard on yourself. You are right where you’re supposed to be, and you are learning to harness your inner peace.

As our desire to assert our independence and break free of the perceived restrictions we’ve created in our minds grows, we may feel restless. Approach this Moon with an open mind and open heart and remain flexible. All of the changes you are experiencing are helping to align you with your Higher self and true life’s calling. You are embarking on a brave new path and unlocking endless opportunities and possibilities as you reclaim your power and rebalance the energy around you.

 

Remain open to receiving blessings in ways you may not have envisioned

 

Venus and Mars also play key roles during this Aquarius New Moon as we are being supported through our own personal journeys of growth. With Mercury sextile Mars, we are being blessed with the gift of quick thinking and reflexes. As unexpected changes happen around us, we are being given the ability to be like water.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.” – Bruce Lee

Use this cosmic alignment to propel you to new heights but remain open to receiving blessings in ways you may not have envisioned. You have a strong sense of purpose and initiative and are on the cusp of the success you desire. The Universe is showering you with the courage and fighting spirit that you need to help you take on any challenges that come your way.

 

Embrace patience, love, and dedication

 

Venus, the ruler of our relationships, also plays a role during this New Moon. With Venus being square Mars, we may experience some relationship difficulties as we finally address any tension that has been lingering. If you are an aggressive or impatient person, this fiery alignment may provoke you to lose your temper. Make sure you recognize this and take a step back when you need to. Don’t lose your temper over things that are out of your control and don’t risk an existing relationship because of the impatience that this alignment can sometimes bring.

With Venus sextile Jupiter, the Universe helps to balance out this Mars energy by helping to calm things down if they get heated and will help to quickly relieve relationship tensions if they arise. Venus is teaching us a valuable lesson as we evaluate our relationships. We are being reminded to value ourselves and not lower our standards for those whose energy does not align with our own.

However, we are also being taught patience, love, and dedication. We are reminded that conflicts may arise, but we must remain true to ourselves and committed to those around us. This alignment brings us a better understanding of our relationships with those we care for and reminds us to show gratitude for the genuine and loving people that we have in our lives. 

 

This New Moon is calling you to be your true authentic self unapologetically

 

While this New Moon can cause some anxiety and uncertainty as we learn to embrace this newfound energy and release preconceived notions, this Moon will ultimately help us focus our minds and stabilize our emotions. We are being prompted to take the actions that we need to experience freedom, nurture our souls, and live authentically.

We are invited to expect the unexpected, do things out of the norm, and embrace any surprises that come our way as we break free of our shackles and express our true selves. This is an incredibly progressive and forward-thinking Moon and is one to remember. The insights that we have been seeking are right on the horizon and we are reminded to continue to pay attention to our intuition and move forward unapologetically. 

Whatever intentions we plant now have the potential to grow during this next lunar cycle and for months to come. However, we are reminded to trust the process and to be open to receive blessings in ways we may not have expected. Things don’t always turn out the way that we expect them to; sometimes the Universe has grander plans in store for us.

December Solstice – Rituals And Everything You Need To Know

The December Solstice on December 21st at 11:19 PM EST / December 22nd at 05:19 AM CET will usher in an intense shift in the cosmos as the Sun stands still and season officially changes.

 

This Solstice marks the Sun’s transition into the earth sign of Capricorn and symbolizes the longest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere and the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, the Universe showers us in a celebration of light, while in the Northern Hemisphere we enter into the darkness needed for deep soul-searching. No matter where you live in the world, this is a day when our heightened sensitivity allows us to tune in with and feel the radiating energy flowing through the Universe. The Solstice helps to lift the veil between our physical world and higher dimensions and when this happens, we are able to more easily tap into the celestial realm and powerful galactic energies. 

In order to fully understand and tune into the energies encompassing this December Solstice, we must understand what this shift means for the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere and what rituals can be performed to help harness the power of this day.

 

In the Northern Hemisphere, the December Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year.

 

These longer hours of darkness allow us to see into the darkest and deepest parts of our soul and present us with an opportunity to go within and become in tune with the most subtle stirrings within our beings. It is only by embracing this darkness that we can truly learn to feel comfortable to be ourselves. The bright sunshine can sometimes make us feel exposed and as though we have nothing to hide behind. This can make us feel the need to be or act in a certain way and can make us feel disconnected from ourselves. However, under the darkness of this Solstice, we have the freedom to dive deep within our core and realize our deepest personal truths. Who we are under the bright sunlight is our outward expression, but who we are under the darkest night is who we have always been and who we aspire to be.

When we allow ourselves to sit with just ourselves, alone with our thoughts, we hear the true vibrations of our souls. Every year, the Universe grants us an opportunity to move away from the spotlight, embrace the darkness, and allow our feelings and personal truths to shine through. You don’t need to justify or explain your truth to anyone around you. You don’t need to apologize for or tone down who you truly are.

The Universe is asking you to forget the labels and judgments of your mind and instead focus on the power of your heart and soul. When you sit in darkness, let go of your thoughts, and allow your being to truly shine, what feelings emerge? What discomforts rise up within you? What happens if you allow yourself to be just as you are?

In the Northern Hemisphere, this December Solstice asks us to let our emotional voice be heard. Allow your soul to surrender and find stillness and peace. Spend more time listening and less time doing. We are after all, human beings not human doings.

 

The shortest day of the year

 

On the shortest day of the year, your ritual should consist of sitting in darkness by yourself. See if you can sit with your eyes open and observe how your body, mind, and soul feel during this experience. There is power in just breathing. Allow yourself to practice being comfortable with simply sitting in your body. Allow any thoughts that float into your mind to pass without you actively engaging them. Push past any restlessness and angst that you may feel and practice the art of existing in the moment.

After getting comfortable with the darkness, your next step is to take a relaxing bath.  This will grant you the opportunity to cleanse yourself of any thoughts or feelings that no longer serve you and that you do not wish to carry with you into the new year. The main purpose of this darkness ritual is to allow your soul to rest. Be gentle with your being and spend this time away from the spotlight of the world getting in touch with you who truly are. 

 

In the Southern Hemisphere, the December Solstice is the shortest night and the longest day of the year.

 

It marks the start of the summer and is the season of light. The Universe grants us this day so that we may allow ourselves to shine. This is a time for removing your cloak of fears, putting yourself out there, and refusing to hold yourself back any longer. We are done playing small and are ready to leap forward. The December Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is a final celebration of all hard work that you have put and all that you have achieved during this past year.

No matter what challenges we may face, this brightest and lightest day of the year is a reminder that there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. Things may feel dark at times, but no matter how dark or deep our experiences are, it is all temporary. The sunshine offers us the clarity and vibrance to move through our lives, continue to radiate love, and realize what’s most important in life.

We are being asked to assess what our driving force is. What lights a fire in your heart and motivates you to not only continue forward, but to continue forward with purpose and steadfast ambition. Under the Capricorn Sun, this celestial shift is guiding us to align with our highest truths and the deepest calling of our soul.

The Universe is blessing us with the opportunity to see that which recharges our soul and fuels our spirit. The radiating Sun casts light upon us and serves to transform, nourish, and inspire us to move forward with confidence and a divine lightness of being. This is an extremely powerful time for us to spend time in nature and connect with the very energy of creation.

 

The longest day of the year

 

On the longest day of the year, your ritual should consist of you going outside and taking in the vibrant sunshine and bountiful energy being cast upon you. Find a beautiful location, sit with a journal and pen, and allow your feelings and thoughts to flow through your pen with ease. Stay in the moment and observe everything that exists around you, taking pause to truly witness each of these things.

Allow the energy of the Universe to fill your pages with writings and drawings and feel the creativity flow organically. You are limitless and the divine creator of your own life. This is an incredibly powerful day for setting intentions for not only yourself, but also those around you and the entire Universe.

Place your hand on your heart and feel it beating. What is it trying to tell you? Use this time to celebrate all that you are and allow your true self to shine through. The light of the Universe lives within you and you have it at your fingertips whenever you need it.

 

The December Solstice symbolizes the shortest and longest days for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres respectfully.

 

This powerful celestial energy is only felt twice a year and our heightened sensitivity allows us to feel the deepest pulses of the Universe radiating through our beings as we tap into the divine, connect with our true selves, and channel the galactic energy of higher realms.
