In the Northern hemisphere, February 1st marks the midway point between the Winter Solstice (12/21/19) and the Spring Equinox (3/19/20). This time of year is known as Imbolc, also called Brigid’s Day. In Gaelic tradition, this symbolizes the beginning of spring! We are beginning to sense the arrival of spring or at the bare minimum, we’re now safe to acknowledge that we are half-way through winter!
February is also a 2 month and we are a 4 year, which is the year of miracles. The nature of 2 because it follows 1, is one understanding his or herself. It is our duty
to during this month to look inward and reflect on what is really working for us.
Did you make your plans for this year yet? Now is the time to stick to your objective, in almost a myopic manner because the mental disturbance is real! If you haven’t created a plan yet then your plan needs to be to make a plan!
The energy this month, from an astrological standpoint, is set up for the potential intense interference so watch your consumption of fear-based information. Remember, if it hasn’t affected you or it’s not your business it would benefit you immensely to pivot your thinking toward what satisfies you and your growth.
The full moon in Leo on February 8th/9th may have you feeling like you want attention, but only of the most extravagant kind. You can’t always get what you want though, so don’t place expectations on people or yourself that realistically can’t be met. By doing that you could be a setting yourself up for disappointment.
Getting honest with ourselves in all areas of life is spiritually mandated right now so you may notice a pull toward over-analyzing, especially in regard to relationships. If you have been holding out hope, but nothing is changing then it’s probably time for you to take a hard look at yourself and what you have been putting up with. If you have been complaining, it’s time to stop and take action toward change.
The complaints aren’t working and having the false sense of anything or anyone being different than the way it is now will leave you disappointed and disenchanted. This is for all relationships including friends, parents, children and, most importantly, the relationship we have with ourselves.
From February 17th to March 10th Mercury is going to retrograde in Pisces. Oh yes, it’s that time again! Be mindful that this retrograde combined with the attributes of 2 has a potential to create confusion if you let yourself get carried away by interruptions.
There will be a lot of interference and triggers presenting themselves as a way to divert yourself from the truth so make a commitment to yourself now that you will be mindful and stay focused on what serves you and your highest good.
The new moon in Pisces on the 23rd is a time where opportunities for the Universe to intervene with miracles is present despite the chaotic energy. To benefit from this though, we must remember to stay focused on our personal objectives and our most authentic purpose.
Suffice to say this month everything is going to most likely feel like a really intense fog, but if we keep our eye on the prize we could come out of it with gains in personal growth and clarity of life purpose.
The card for the month of February is Ace of Wands reversed. There may be a feeling that opportunity is not knocking on your door this month, but that’s not actually the case.
Where opportunity is going to present itself will be in unexpected places. The best attitude to adopt this month is to let go and permit the Universe take care of it.
The gifts will be handed to you when you least expect it, so don’t expect anything and you will be pleasantly surprised!
