RUNE OF THE MONTH: Isa “Ice”. Running on ice is never a good idea! A frozen lake can support our weight but can also break with little, to no, warning sign. Ice also preserves our food and refreshes us when the weather is too hot. When frozen, water becomes solid and heavy but also connects islands together that in the summer we could never walk to. We are asked to listen and enter 2022 slowly and cautiously. In this first month of the new year, being quiet, reserved, patient, disciplined, and brave is recommended.

Mercury turns retrograde on Friday 1/14 at 3:41 AM till February 3 between 10º19’ and 25º34’ Capricorn. Its shadow period remains until February 24. The next 3 weeks require that we rethink our organization. Adapting our structures to new demands allows us to be more effective. Taking responsibility for our words and actions is an absolute necessity. We could adopt a more pragmatic approach to life, and might even show signs of cautious pessimism. Carrying ourselves with dignity and authority helps us impose clear boundaries. Within self-imposed rules, our mind is serious, focused on hard work, disciplined, and ambitious.
Uranus turns direct on Monday 1/17 at 7:27 AM at 10º49’ Taurus. Its shadow period remains until May 5th, 2022. This degree is symbolized by: “A woman watering flowers in her garden”. The past months have brought much rebelliousness in us, encouraged us to assert our truth and individuate. We found what makes us feel free and discovered who we really are in our uniqueness. In this newfound completed-ness, we can now literally cultivate our garden, enjoy the beauty of life, give birth to more enchantment, and feel serene.
Venus turns direct on Saturday 1/29 at 12:46 AM at 11º07’ Capricorn. Her shadow period remains until March 2, 2022. This degree is symbolized by: “An illustrated lecture on natural science reveals little-known aspects of life”. According to the Webster dictionary, “natural science is any science dealing with matter, energy, their interrelations and transformations”. As an old love may have resurfaced and we delved deeper into our blocks to love, intimacy, and the notion of companionship in general, much emerges that was buried within ourselves, that needs either healing, to be explored, or released. Romance is always a complex topic that brings old emotional scars to the surface, confronts us with our deepest fears, and forces us to examine closely our dreams, ideals, and illusions. Relationships are powerful catalysts of transformation for good or ill, depending on our choice of partners.

Our intentional meditation started on Saturday 12/18. We placed as many blank sheets of paper as we had intentions near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Gemini. Once that moment passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.
On Sunday 1/2 on the New Moon in Capricorn, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 10:33 AM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….
Next month’s intentional meditation starts on Monday 1/17. Take out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Leo at exactly 3:48 PM. Once that moment will have passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

Saturday 1/1: Sun Trine Uranus (1:50 AM), Mercury enters Aquarius (11:10 PM till 1/25)
New friendships, unexpected good fortune, and exciting activities mark this day. We are interested in self-improvement, develop new interests, and are ready for untried adventures. Expecting the unexpected and breaking free from our daily routine, expands our horizons. During the next 3 weeks, we are particularly social. Attracted to unusual people, our ideas are innovative, social reforms come to the forefront, and we are drawn to humanitarian endeavors.
Wednesday 1/5: Venus Sextile Neptune (8:03 AM)
An inspiring day for artists and creators. Our appreciation of beauty is particularly refined. A new romance could feel ethereal. A soul connection may seem almost too enchanted to be consummated. At best it is, at worst we should beware of illusions. Smoke screens and lies could veil a less than ideal partner in a smoke of charm and perfection that eventually dissipates, revealing that person’s “feet of clay”.
Saturday 1/8: Sun Conjunct Venus (4:48 PM)
A pleasant day of harmonious interactions with others. We seek peace, balance, and beauty. Kind, considerate and respectful of others, our exchanges are diplomatic. A good day to beautify our home and ourselves, go shopping for a new outfit and/or offer ourselves, or a loved one, a nice bouquet of flowers.
Monday 1/10: Sun Sextile Neptune (7:28 PM)
A day of creative imagination. Artists are particularly favored, especially painters, dancers, photographers, and musicians. Our sensitivity to the invisible is finely tuned. Our dreams could be very vivid. Our empathy is more developed than usual, enabling us to inspire others with a sense of peace and balance.
Tuesday 1/11: Mars Square Neptune (1:43 PM)
Today, hidden resentments, self-destructive tendencies, suppressed jealousy, and/or covert hostility can be particularly damaging. Secret enemies could sabotage our projects. Fraudulent actions are a danger. Best to lay low, meditate, sleep, dream, and engage in quiet, inspiring, artistic activities that stimulate our imagination.
Sunday 1/16: Sun Conjunct Pluto (6:51 AM)
A chance is offered to us to make a fresh new start. Today, past, unfulfilled desires could come to fruition. Our inner strength, our courage and determination exert a powerful influence on others. Major changes transform our awareness.
Wednesday 1/19: the Sun enters Aquarius (6:39 PM till 2/18)
During the next month, we become champions of freedom, innovations, and futuristic ideas. We are focused on friendship, humanitarian projects and social justice. Our minds function in unusual ways making us inventive and drawn to science fiction, ufology, and scientific works.
Sunday 1/23: Sun Conjunct Mercury (2:28 AM)
A good day to socialize, make new acquaintances, exchange information, and travel short distances. This day is most likely spent making phone calls, writing emails, reading brochures, watching short videos, as well as connecting with friends.
Monday 1/24: Mars enters Capricorn (4:53 AM till March 5)
During the next month and a half, Capricorn natives are favored. Actions are structured, backed by hard work, disciplined focus, and fueled by the ambition to succeed. Self-imposed limitations help us grow with wisdom and maturity.
Tuesday 1/25: Mercury re-enters Capricorn (7:05 PM till 2/14)
During the next 3 weeks, our thinking is more serious and mature. We are possibly more silent, seek solitude and the company of books that deepen our understanding of life. We are drawn to older, wiser people, as well as to those who have culminated in their career and can support our own ambitions.
Friday 1/28: Mercury Conjunct Pluto (8:16 PM)
Our ability to X-ray situations and people helps us be aware of the subtle nuances in our social interactions. Secret, sensitive information divulged at the wrong time to the wrong person could have devastating consequences. A deep understanding of our mind-body connection leads to powerful healing. We are drawn to the mysteries of life.
Sunday 1/30: Sun Square Uranus (11:32 AM)
Our rebelliousness and need for freedom of expression are likely to be more disastrous than constructive. Unexpected, rash reactions could lead to relationship breakups. Unforeseeable events could suddenly change our plans. Staying present to the moment, as well as flexible, is essential. Reflecting before rushing into action is advised.
Wishing you the best new year ever!
In Loving Light.
