For all of us here at AEC, improving our balance and harmony with the universe is something we're always working to improve. Over the years we've noticed that as soon as we seem to be getting a handle on things, something changes seemingly out of the blue bringing challenges and disruption to our life. Yay.
After more than enough times of looking in the mirror and screaming, "WTH!" we began to see a pattern. These shifts almost always aligned with either the moon phases or an astrological shift. As we began to take note of these events and adjust our spiritual growth and self-care routines around them there was a new shift, progress!
We finally began seeing the consistent growth we wanted. It felt like our spiritual journey had finally started for real. And while it was just a new beginning, it also felt like an end. The end of an old lifestyle and belief system we had been trying to shed for years.
After continuing this practice for awhile we started thinking about how we could improve it. What if we could plan a detailed breakdown of the best practices for each zodiac season on a week by week basis? So we asked our teacher, Akashic Astrologer Jeremy R. Werner, if he would be willing to give us his astrology insight and he said yes!
We loved it so much we wanted to share it with all of you in the form of monthly posts here on our blog. Here is the outlook for this Aquarius season:
Welcome Aquarius, Sacred Water Bearer
Bringer of Universal Life Force
Awaken us from our slumber
Electrify our Minds with Purpose
Show us the Way to Freedom
Reveal our Sacred Cause
Our World is changing, and we can no longer rely on the social structures of the past to carry us forward. We need enlightened inspiration, collective collaboration and a renewal of our conscious purpose! Aquarius ushers in a time of creative contemplation of our future, a renewal of our social networks and opportunities to manifest our innovative ideas.
Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius, signifies the structure of society and the crystallization of forms. It represents the limitations within the Earth plane that enable manifestation. Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius, signifies the power of liberation, to express new, ground-breaking concepts and to free the mind from the restrictions of the status quo. Together, these energies provide the basic mechanism for evolving our way of life.
With the Sun in Aquarius, we have the opportunity to see more clearly where we have become rigid or stagnant and where we need to renovate the framework of our own lives. The Spirit of Aquarius is the Wayshower of the Future and tells us that true liberation and wisdom come through the responsible application of new knowledge over time.
To receive inspiration and insight from the Water Bearer, perform this simple meditation ceremony:
Light a candle and sit comfortably with a purple Flourite in your left hand and a clear Flourite or Quartz crystal in your right. Take a few slow, deep breaths and begin to feel the flow of energies moving through your body and aura. Take into the Crown Chakra a soft purple color, then bring this light down into your Heart where it becomes a bright
white light. Allow this light to fill your body and shine outwardly in all directions. Now, begin to ask questions relevant to your life and listen for answers that may come through words, images, sensations or innate knowing. Meditate for as long as you like. To close, set the stones down and touch your palms to the floor to ground yourself. Take a slow, deep breath as you come back to sitting, then open your eyes and journal your experience. When complete, gently blow out the candle with gratitude in your Heart.
The Sun-Jupiter-Saturn stellium in Aquarius squares the Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus and sextiles the asteroid Chiron in Aries
3-2-1… Blast off!! The Sun’s ingress into Aquarius begins an explosive month with a challenging aspect of Planets in square from fixed Signs, a volatile concoction catalyzing significant change. We are compelled to evaluate what is not working in our lives and society and to take radical action. We need to tread carefully, however, as these energies may be unwieldy and throw us into a bit of chaos before we re-establish our ground. This is just what we need to wake us up to the reality in which we live!
The Sun squaring the Mars-Uranus conjunction illuminates the problems, conflicts and inadequacies in our lives and the world at large that need to be questioned and resolved. Additionally, any time Mars (the God of War) and Uranus (The Great Awakener) are in aspect, especially when conjunct, we can expect discord, restlessness, accidents and even civil unrest or war. These themes will play out dramatically through the month. Furthermore, the two rulers of Aquarius, Saturn and Uranus, are in square, signifying the current conflict between the need for drastic global change and the need for accountability and social stability.
With Chiron in Aries sextiling the Sun-Jupiter-Saturn stellium, we are given the opportunity through this time of major sociocultural change to access and heal deep carried wounding that impairs our ability to define ourselves from a place of self-worth. Yet this opportunity requires our conscious effort and commitment to manifest the healing. Indeed, the Planets are calling us to do our part, and we must take necessary action!
Place 4 pieces of black tourmaline in a square large enough so that you can sit in the middle. Then place a piece of pyrite between each black tourmaline to form the sides of the square. Sit in the center of the square and hold a blue aventurine in your left hand. Place your right hand on your chest over the Heart Center. Feel into the energies of the grid that you have formed and start to meditate on what changes you need to make in your life to live more honestly and authentically. Be prepared to take on new responsibilities for your personal evolution as you gain clearer insight about your current reality. Meditate for as long as desired, then take intentional action in your life based on the insight you received.
Mercury Retrograde January 30 – February 21
The Cosmic Messenger begins his retrograde journey at the end of the month and bestows upon us the opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate where we are and where we’re going. Mercury remains in the Sign of Aquarius during its sojourn, highlighting the importance of exploring our own individual minds and finding new, unique ways to express ourselves. This is a time to go inward, to question our direction and to discover our own truth and purpose.
During any Mercury Retrograde period, our analytical minds may lose the normal focus and our communications may take some surprising detours. However, this makes way for more intuitive flashes and synchronicities in our lives. With Mercury in Aquarius, we may find ourselves restless for change, excited about new concepts and eager to act freely based on our ideals. But let’s keep our minds flexible! Aquarius is a fixed Air Sign so we could become mentally rigid and demand that our truth is the Ultimate Truth. Through this time, remember that ideas expressed with Heart invite those relationships we need for the authentic evolution of consciousness.
Pink and blue calcite together help to support the free flow of ideas and communication based in compassion. With the addition of snow quartz, you have a soft yet potent triad to carry with you for greater success in your interactions with others. Holding these stones between the palms at the level of the Heart with fingers pointing upwards provides a doorway into your own mind for deeper contemplation and self-reflection. Let yourself go “retrograde” into your own depths and find what you need to move forward with greater certainty.
We hope you liked this months outlook, or at least the insight! It's a tough time for everyone but an opportunity for great success personally and collectively.
