Happy Birthday, Aquarius friends!! This month brings a massive amount of energy for you to use however you want! With the Sun lighting up your 1st house, and in your own sign, the awesome possibilities burn bright. This is a time for rebirth and you can maximize your new chapters by taking the time to go within and figure out what you really want. Birthday wishes are real and you get 10 of them! Write them down, say them out loud, and most importantly, FEEL them as if they have already come true. You can phrase them something like this: I am so grateful that my desire for …… has been fulfilled in a magical way! This method employs the energy of desire that is true to the transit and focuses on the fulfillment, not the lack of, which is the absolute key to manifestation. You can see more about this in my video,
The 1st house that is highlighted for you now is all about what you put out into the world/how the world sees you. Are you doing things that match how you want to be received? If not, how can you change aspects of your life where there is a disconnect to create coherence between what you want to be seen as and how you are showing up.
Often the Sun’s movement through this house brings attention to you. It could throw you into the limelight bringing in recognition and/or an increase in awareness of you and your work or other projects.
This house also rules your physical body so getting into or back into a daily physical routine is imperative. Balancing mental activity with physical movement is an important way to open up to inspiration and keep yourself healthy and mentally and emotionally clear.
At the same time as daily movement (walking, yoga, tai chi, etc.) is helpful for focus and reaching goals. Complementary stillness of mind and body through meditation is helps to use your actions most efficiently.
Even something simple like 20 minutes of physical exercise and 5-10 minutes of daily meditation can do a world of wondrous good 🙂
If you have physical ailments, the Sun’s placement in the 1st house could bring new insights. Feelings not felt, expressed with spiritual accountability, and cleared, turn into physical pain in your body. Finding the balance between getting things out that you are feeling, without talking too much about the same thing over and over or participating in avoidance behaviors is your mission 🙂 Symptoms from the past may resurface for further attention.
Having a daily way to cleanse your emotional field from things you tend to try to ‘work away’ is critical for your happiness and health. I love Marriage of Spirit by Leslie Temple Thurston exercises in Section 2 of the book for this (see below).
I also really love barefoot walking (which is also amazing for detoxifying) or holding your third eye and hands up on a tree (in colder weather that isn’t conducive to being barefoot) to help clear your field and balance your energy field. You will be surprised at the wonders this simple practice could bring when done consistently. The Earth frequency is very balancing to the human energy field and has been mitigated in more modern times because of the plastic and rubber shoe bottoms which block the energy from permeating the energy field in deeper ways.
Getting back to focusing on your breath will be another big piece for your best, happiest, and healthiest life 🙂
February 2023 through early April 2023 is a magical time when any progress that seemed slow for many months, can race forward at top speed and positive changes can occur surprisingly quickly. Not only are the personal planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) direct, ALL the OUTER PLANETS are also ALL DIRECT! This is a very rare time in the cosmos. Things that were delayed for months or even years, can manifest in days.
We are still on a break from the heat of the eclipse seasons. Enjoy it because starting in March, the waters of eclipse season start to bubble up again. The Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle will begin again and a new polarity, Aries/Libra, will also start up.
Capricorn energies continue for the first third or so of the month can bring great focus and powers of perseverance. If you have to do something tedious any time soon (like taxes!), now could be a great time to harness the diligence you need to get numbers in order. If you are wanting to take on something else that requires organization or persistence, these Cap energies can help. Getting down to business and taking care of practical matters is another great way to use these energies. You also may be putting the final touches on a MAJOR launch or some other major chapter is about to begin and you can use this energy to help you take care of the strategic parts of the project, making sure all is ready for the push forward that is happening now.
Strong Aquarius energies from the Sun and Mercury bring in important connections with others and community efforts. Many social opportunities will pop up, as will chances to connect with neighbors or to attend local events. Internet-based activities may start taking center stage and networking can yield especially amazing results. Networking can be especially fruitful at this time. Others may hold important keys to your project or plans so saying YES when someone wants to introduce you to someone else, if your intuition says its a go, may be a very good idea.
Mars in Gemini brings fun relief in your busy schedule and just enough distraction for you to return refreshed to your list of things to do. If you are a writer or are otherwise creating spoken, written, or other crafts, you will be highly creative and soar through your projects. Working in short spurts might help you to be the most productive. Now that Mars is direct, topics you have been vacillating about may start to become more clear as to which option to choose.
Pisces energies from Venus through most of the month and the Sun starting around February 19, bring in opportunities for rest and retreat amidst the flurry of activity from the other placements. Taking some time to commune with nature or connect deeply with others in a quiet, private place, can bring great restoration. Art projects or spiritual studies are also well-supported by these placements.
Aries energy bursts in through Venus’ movement later in the month and is well-buoyed by Jupiters’ presence. These placements, plus the glorious event of all the planets going direct, all point towards ACTION. It is a time truly blessed for important things to be carried forth.
