There’s something about Aquarius Season that stirs the soul to think out of the box and embrace a new angle on things! Aquarius is the sign of the collective, and I’m refreshing the blog to celebrate this sign and to respond to my growing audience. Happy birthday dear Aquarius friends!

February also feels like a good month for a health check-in, with such extreme climates being experienced both north and south. In this light, there’s a video offered on the twelve signs and their connection to both the physical body and the energetic centers, the chakras.
Something that has struck me forcefully of late is that, no matter how long it takes us, we all end up living our charts. Life has a way of taking us to our destination. Life has the answers. Let us move toward Life with full purpose in our hearts. Thank you for your trust as we journey through these new and energizing times together!
Planetary Check-in for February
February promises a genuine shift of energies! Prepare to step up and step out!
January 2022 has been a month of endurance for many, with much inward-turning and deep reflection taking place. With Venus, the planet of what we value, retrograde from mid-December until end-January, there’s been plenty of time to reflect on what we hold dear. And with Mercury, the planet of communication, retrograde from mid-January until February 5, it has felt intuitive to many to slow down and not force one’s agenda.
The Sun’s shift into Aquarius on January 19 followed closely on the Moon’s Nodal shift into the signs of Taurus/Scorpio. The Nodes were last traveling through Taurus/Scorpio in April 2003 – they tend to follow an 18-year cycle – so it’s worthwhile to reflect on the important personal connections that were made between the spring of 2003 and December 2004. I, for one, met my husband, married, and emigrated to a foreign country during this period.
The signs which the Moon’s Nodes travel through also indicate what signs the year’s eclipses will take place in. For those of us with planets in either Taurus or Scorpio, now is a good time to clear the decks, as we prepare to receive the energy of the eclipses in 2022. Eclipses may offer personal shifts and opportunities for awakening.
All the planets will be moving in a direct motion in February, and slowly gathering speed, enabling us to begin moving out of “limbo” and into manifestation. However, it must be stressed that we are now in a very powerful “unwinding” part of the energetic release created by the Saturn-Uranus square of 2021. The dip in the stock market in January, the political backlash against restrictions, and the sense of facing the consequences of our actions since lockdown is now potent.
