Hello magical souls!
It’s time for the monthly Energetic Forecast. February always goes by so fast; one minute it starts, and it feels like in the blink of an eye, March rolls around. So, take advantage and make the best of the shortest month of the year!
Now, the first thing I’d like to mention even though it took place in January, is the Lunar Eclipse. As I mentioned in the Super Blue Blood Moon article, this event was both a starting and ending point. How can that be? Well, it’s a starting point because it was the culmination of a cycle that began with the August 21st Leo Solar Eclipse. With this recent Lunar Eclipse, comes a new 6-month cycle. Since this happened not so long ago, the energy still lingers. Think of it as a transformational portal opening up, it’s an open energy and not limited to that specific day.
Another fun and exciting fact about February is that we will have a New Moon, and no Full Moon. This has its significance, and I’m about to get to it. Ready?
If you’ve been researching info and details for this month, you’ll begin to notice that most articles and guidance speaks a lot about the Eclipse Season. This is because right now, we are all smack in the middle of it. The energy surrounding the entire month of February is very connected to these Eclipses.
The past Full Moon was all about endings, closing circles, connecting with your soul purpose and truth. And with the boosted power of the Lunar Eclipse, things that might have been hidden from or unknown to you, surfaced. This could have affected certain relationships or how you see them. It directly affected the individual part of everyone. It challenged goals, relationships, previously built structures or paradigms and all of those started. It made you question why some things are currently in your life and if you still want them in it.
The revelations that might have come forth during this time, will probably not be easy to accept or handle, but they must be dealt with. Of course, there are things you don’t necessarily WANT to see clearly, but the energy surrounding everyone right now is not really asking if you want to or not. Reality is sinking in and the veils of illusion or delusion have been lifted. Because of this, you may be feeling unsettled, confused, anxious or maybe even apprehensive on what will happen because of these changes. However, these changes are coming whether you choose to embrace them or not.
The changes that this season brings are meant for your own expansion and growth. They are meant to shake you up, so you find new perspectives and ways of aligning yourself with your true purpose. This season always brings strong transformations, a re-arranging of your life and how you live it, who you are and what you stand for.
There is a cycle for everything and everyone. When you attach yourself to things that you no longer need or resonate in your life, resistance kicks in, you create more obstacles and challenges for yourself. The phrase “Your own worst enemy” really does apply for these transformations. The energy of the month could be compared to a tug ‘o’ war between the old and the new. Transits such as the last quarter moon in Scorpio are giving everyone a little extra push to really weed things out.
The time between the Leo Lunar and Aquarius Solar Eclipse may have you feeling unbalanced and unhinged. However! Take this time to discover what works best for you when it comes to grounding and bringing back balance; maybe meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, dancing, painting, whatever it is, do it. If you find a healthy and mindful way to center yourself, it will feel less chaotic. And, if you’re centered and grounded, perhaps others will be the same way around you too (Maybe).
The Aquarius Solar Eclipse and New Moon are bringing in new beginnings, waves of change and improvement. At the beginning of the article, I mentioned the fact that there will be no Full Moon in February. The significance of this is that both transits are strongly encouraging and motivating you to embrace the new. New things, people, experiences and lessons are wanting and NEEDING to come into your life, let them. That being said, first you need to make room in your life and weed out the old and toxic.
On the same day as the New Moon/Solar Eclipse, we welcome the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog. This brings a very happy, grounded, stable, communicative and collaborative energy, unlike the Fire Rooster and it’s soon to be over reign of ambition, independence, decisiveness and fierceness.
The energy will start to mellow down once Mars squares Neptune and the Sun enters Pisces. So, a more dreamy, sensitive, kind and compassionate energy will come in. If at this time you feel like walking away from a circumstance, it’s ok. It doesn’t always mean that you’re avoiding or running away from it. If you truly feel and know that something just isn’t right, the Mars influence will not be as feisty as it usually is, and it can go down in peace. Pisces leads from the heart, so if your guard is down and your ego is in check, you might be either resolving and evolving or saying goodbye with grace. Any sadness or disappointment experienced now will start it’s healing process once Venus conjuncts Neptune, allowing forgiveness, acceptance and universal love in.
February is calling out to you to cut your bull*** (sorry for the harshness!), keep yourself in check. If there’s something that’s not working for you in your life, ask yourself why, explore and search for those answers within. BUT be HONEST with yourself and own your life, actions and emotions. Don’t let others make you the victim, and above all, don’t make yourself a victim (Pisces shadow influence). If you search within to blame others, be judgmental and aggressive… things will turn sour very quickly and it will most likely cause you more tension and grief. Not to mention, you may regret it later.
Empower yourself! It’s time to really take inspired and intuitive action towards what you want. All the work you’ve already put into your journey will help you through this.
Even if the month’s energy may be a little unsettling or heartbreaking for some, TRUST that it has a purpose and be grateful for it. Sometimes we think a certain circumstance is the worst thing that happened to us, and when time goes by and we look back, we realize how much it actually helped us in our journey. Stay grounded, objective and focused. By the end of the month, these energies will be winding down some and you’ll have a clearer path ahead of you.
Tarot card for the month: The Tower
When The Tower shows up, it’s always a sign that something is coming to an end. After looking at all the transits and energies surrounding February, I’m not surprised this came up.
Structures foundations are being TORN DOWN completely. What you have come to know about yourself, others and your surroundings, may be no more. But don’t panic just yet! Take this opportunity to focus on what you can build, instead of what’s being torn down. For example, if there were no limits whatsoever, how would you like to be? what would you be doing? where is your heart guiding you to? Write down the answers in your journal or in a piece of paper if you wish.
Now, ask yourself why you haven’t gone to where your heart wants you to go to, why you’re not being the way you want to be, why you may not be living your truth, why you’re not doing what you want to be doing. THESE answers are KEY. Why? because you may find in them, the structures that need to be torn down. If you haven’t lived in a particular way because of what people might say, it might be time to break free from that insecurity. If you want to pursue your dream but have been afraid to, it might very well be time to bring down that fear. And so on…
A little objective and neutral introspection may bring you a lot more clarity than you imagined, and in doing so, you’ll be able to focus on what you want to create.
