The Sun flows through your 12th house this month bringing great opportunities for finding inner riches, but there is also a catch … The same house that rules this place of hidden power, also holds your deepest fears. What sits as a potential for you at this time is nothing short of pure alchemy ~ taking the deepest and darkest muck in your being, coming from your ancestry, past-life, and this life time, and converting it into shiny, and very valuable, gold is the mission 🙂
Any psychological or spiritual work done at this time holds even more power than usual. Hypnosis, affirmations, subliminal messaging audio’s, and meditation are all amazing ways to use this energy.
Shamanic work is also extra powerful at this time. Anything you can do to gather lost soul pieces from people, places, and experiences will be even more profound and effective now.
The 12th house is also the house of dream-time. Your dreams may be more active now. Valuable insights about patterns, programs, and future trajectories may be more readily available now. Consciously using the subconscious space for problem-solving and manifesting is especially potent now. Posing a problem that needs solution to your subconscious mind before going to bed can help you to use the dream space to effectively work things out, helping you wake up with solutions. Lucid dreaming (where you become aware that you are dreaming as you are dreaming) may be more active now and if you would like to foster this experience, intentionally working on this now may be very fruitful.
The 12th house is like your attic: there is a lot to clear out and go through in this space but there is also things there that you will re-find that you will be happy to have back, and other treasures yet to explore.
Quality sleep is a cornerstone of vibrant health and well-being. This period of time may bring the topic of sleep up in a bigger way through increased trouble sleeping or for some other reason give more impetus to focus on improving sleep. Also, this time could bring important information or breakthroughs in the arena of sleep.
It is an amazing time for retreats, rest, and unplugging from technology.
This placement is a preparation for your birthday/rebirth time coming soon. It can be tempting to engage in avoidance behaviors as the 12th house is activated but consciously and gratefully greeting these things swept under the rug can make for an even more powerful birthday/rebirth/manifestation period.
Often in the weeks before birthday time, the things you DON’T want make themselves more apparent to better prepare you to make your birthday wishes to create the things you DO want 🙂 Do the work now and reap the rewards soon.
This month is also chock full of artistic opportunities. Magical, flowing, creativity is very common during 12th house transits so if you can get time alone to process and create it will likely be very productive. Also, if you already are working in the arts, opportunities for your craft to go to a bigger level could come now. You can say yes to opportunities that feel good that may come your way. Lots of opportunities will abound now, just make sure to read paperwork carefully and make sure you know what you are getting into and take care not to overcommit.
You may feel drawn to bring your hobbies into the professional arena or make advances in your professional artistic work. If you are drawn to push some things out into the world that are ready to be seen, follow your intuition and the synchronicities to guide your decision-making.
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.
