Happy February 2nd! I am not sure exactly why, but there is an air of celebration around this day. I know of a few cultures that do have celebrations that correspond with early February. At the very least, it's Groundhog Day here in the US. I'm like, who cares about the groundhog? The days are getting longer...anybody noticed that?!
This morning we wake up to a Void Moon in Cancer. However, as the lights are off on the Moon, the Sun in Aquarius perfects in sextile to Uranus in Aries. No worries. The energy from that transit will still be in effect and accessible as the Moon enters Leo at 12:41 PM.
Personalities are waking up this afternoon. People are becoming more animated. Emotions are rising. The Moon is building toward max capacity. But, within that, we are freely expressing ourselves individually. In turn, we are appreciative of those who do the same. Genuine self expression is highly favored under this sky. Acknowledge your own differences and appreciate those you find in others.
At 7:54 PM, the Moon meets Saturn in Sagittarius by supportive trine. This brings solidness of character and essential grounding. Stuff we need and can put to good use along with the energy coming from Sun in aspect to Uranus. We are centered and grounded in ourselves and not afraid to be who we are while we are feeling what we are feeling. We are essential cogs in an interdependent wheel. Our differences are not something that drives us apart, but rather something that gives the machine cohesion, traction and functionality. We are integral parts of something larger than ourselves but also well rounded and functional all by ourselves when away from the collective. Stand alone or stand together. We are folks that can do both when needed.
Sounds pretty nice, eh? Well, to me, this day does look pretty nice. It's upbeat while remaining on task. It is freely expressive without being overbearing. It is cooperative and open to new experience. It encourages you to be you as you subsequently support others to do the same.
Tomorrow is our Full Moon in Leo. There is very little friction that occurs between now and then. The Moon does oppose Mercury at midnight. The rest of the trek toward this Full Moon looks pretty smooth to me. The big call under tomorrow's sky will be to let go of more selfish and immature behaviors. Take what has happened in the recent past and use it as fodder to grow stronger and more resilient. Stand true in “who you are” while finding your place in the bigger picture at the same time.
Instead of allowing old wounds and triggers to prompt you to do something you normally wouldn't, work to protect those triggers and heal the events that fostered those wounds to begin with. Don't let them steer your ship without your permission anymore. They too are a part of you that needs just as much care and attention as any other part. Love the whole of you all while striving to improve and become more self-mastered. Encourage the same for the people you come in contact with. Be the cheerleader and supporter of optimism and new perspectives. Help others find their own trajectory and source of hope for the future. Keep your own candle lit generously helping to light the candles of others.
That, my friends, is what the sky is calling us to do under this waxing Moon. Go get you some of it!
