Welcome to the beginning of 2015! Finally, Water succeeds the
throne in the heavens! We enter a year ruled by Air, the 8th orb on
the tree of life! This is an energy ruled by Mercury and Raphael. Raphael
encourages us to heal from the inside out. Mercury inspires our mind to grow
and expand. He gives us clarity in the mind and provides an avenue to apply
lessons learned from the prior 7 year of 2014. We will have a blog more on this
Astrologically, we begin the year with some dynamic energies
and squares all over the place. Squares are the energies of tension, something
has to give. These energies are very
beneficial too; they get the ball rolling and force us out of complacent
behaviors or situations. Interesting how they are all happening at the
beginning of the year a time of transition for everyone!
January 1st – 4th is an upheaval of
energy. We start the year out with the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Pluto all in
Capricorn, the sign of perceptions, foundation, structure, the need for
control. That’s a lot of energy in one place! At this time the Sun and Pluto
both square Uranus. So it begins the tug between the old and the new. This is
the beginning of some serious deep self examination which will involve some
shadow work. It will demand that you turn the mirror on yourself and be your
own revolution. That is how we succeed in the 2015. We need to know that not
all rules are meant to be broken; it then becomes a question of which ones to
keep. How to do we heal and build
ourselves up this year, we start with ourselves. The Uranus energy therefore
engages the mind and it truly is higher thinking to become a serious instrument
Venus and Mercury are also creating Trines on the moon in
Capricorn. The energies are being that of struggle but hopeful all at the same time.
They are tension, but herald hope as well. So it’s rather tempered. How do we
do our resolutions? We have to choose something to do, be abstract. Then work
backward, but you have to be honest with yourself and decide if it’s something
you actually want.
Jupiter is still in Leo and is retrograde at this time.
Jupiter retrograde at the beginning of the year is setting the tone for the
year. He is telling you that this is going to be a year of growth and expansion
from within. Pull back and look at each area, make a plan and do it. The plans
need to be congruent with the heart and the mind. Jupiter Retrograde is also
wonderful being able to figure out HOW to expand and growth.
begins the Mercury retrograde in Aquarius until Feb. 11th.
Don’t be afraid of the Mercury Retrograde. Steer into this energy and you will
prosper. We also have Venus, Sun, and Moon in Aquarius. There are some strong oppositions and squares
again at this time, but how appropriate for a retrograde that is designed to
get us on track literally in the mind? Don’t start any new projects at this
time! Why? The answer is you have older projects that need done now! Tackle
them now and calm waters are ahead of you. We are being impacted by the
Pluto-Uranus square. Some real truths are going to emerge during this
retrograde. People are going to show who they are, believe them. We are in a
proactive year get on board or get lost in the muck.
