No matter how difficult our path appears to be this month, we are in this together, and as we acknowledge our connection, we are strengthened and ennobled, so that our very best qualities can shine forth! In this way we combine the energies of Leo and Aquarius and prepare ourselves to pass through the eclipse gateway that will bring us to the coming springtime and the advent of a new astrological year!
Celebrate Brigid, goddess of fire, hearth, fields, cows, craft, childbirth and poetry on February 2nd. Invite her into your home, your heart and community. Ask for her blessing during the season of quickening, as days become longer, and we prepare for the ascent of the forces of light, celebrated at the Spring Equinox. Festivals occurring at the mid-point of a fixed sign, like Aquarius, are traditionally feasts of prognostication. The month of Aquarius is the month of the Rowan, tree of the quickening, and of prophetic visions.
There is a simple way to reconnect with the Christ within us, and to true Christmas Spirit. That is through connecting to the Divine Mother. We can connect with Mary through a contemplation of the spiritual powers inherent in nature, and through Mary we will connect with the Holy Spirit.
Again and again- we receive the information-we need for our journey-yet fear turns our feet to clay, some days it is hard to move a single step. Those days are for dancing in place.
