The more you look the more you can see change taking place in every aspect of life in response to the growing Aquarian influence in our world. As always the impetus for change is bringing us both opportunity and challenge in equal measure.
February and the Energies of Aquarius
Probably the influences you have been feeling most in recent days are those of retrograde mercury and the energies of the spectacular full moon on February 3rd.
If you braved the cold to look at the night sky you would have been able to see the planet Jupiter sitting right alongside that bright full moon. Both were in Leo opposite the sun in Aquarius with influential links to Uranus in Aries.
The resulting energy flow brought an expansive, penetrating illumination of opportunity to see anything that was holding us back. This might have felt temporarily uncomfortable if it magnified something that you were reluctant to recognise within yourself, however it also brought revelation to those who could simply accept and allow.
Retrograde mercury will continue to provide us with a positive opportunity for inner reflection and the possibility of muddled communications in our everyday worlds until it turns direct on February 11th.
During February each year the sun shines onto the earth through the constellation of Aquarius, bringing about an annual magnification of its energetic influence. This year is of course no exception, so currently we are directly in the flow of the airy, uplifting and expansive energies of Aquarius which as always, seek to bring to the forefront of our consciousness the spiritual values of unity, sharing and right human relationships.
Since we are also now fully embarked on our long transit through the Age of Aquarius the qualities and attributes inherent within this energy flow will be an ongoing influence that will continue to shape our experiences on Earth for the next 2000 years. It is therefore an especially important influence for us to align with in order that we can maximise the potentials and opportunities available to us.
Opportunity and Challenge in Aquarius
A fundamental theme within the Aquarian flow of energies is that of the inherent unity of all life. Already we can see this influence stimulating a growing recognition of the need for us all to become more inclusive, compassionate and to find ways to share resources with equality and generosity of spirit.
It is also the influence of Aquarian ideals that is driving forward the huge advances in digital technology that now make it possible for us to connect with practically anyone and everyone around the world almost instantaneously. What clearer reminder could there be of the fact that humanity is one family with a collective consciousness and an as yet, latent ability to communicate telepathically with each other and all life.
Another fascinating thing to ponder upon is the relatively new, very Aquarian opportunity to store our digital data in the ‘cloud’ – a reminder to draw upon the resources of our soul consciousness, previously ‘stored in the cloud’ by ourselves, ready to be called upon now as we expand our conscious awareness of ourselves as multi-dimensional beings.
The more you look the more you can see change taking place in every aspect of life in response to the growing Aquarian influence in our world. As always the impetus for change is bringing us both opportunity and challenge in equal measure. One particular challenge that seems to be affecting many people right now is how to stay open, grounded, focussed and present, yet avoid that uncomfortable state of sensory overload that is so available in a world where we have instant access to events ranging from beautiful and uplifting to terrifyingly horrific.
Clearly, if we are to further the Aquarian dream of a world based in harmony, unity and brotherhood we must find ways to meet this challenge without allowing ourselves to become consumed by it. So with this in mind check out this month’s essences suggestions to explore some essence combinations that offer support with this endeavour.
