RUNE OF THE MONTH: “Sowelu” the Sun. We are starting this new year with the healing of old wounds, forgiveness mostly towards ourselves, and shining a bright light on what brings generosity, happiness, and serenity to our lives. Now the chance is given to us to break through darkness as well as everything that had grown stagnant in our lives, and work hard to manifest our best and highest reality.

Mars turns direct on January 12, 2023. Its shadow period lasts until March 15, 2023. The degrees traveled in January (9º04’-8º09’ Gemini) are symbolized by: “An airplane performing a nose-dive” and “A quiver filled with arrows”. We have been having to question our actions, the life direction we chose, face our courage or lack thereof. After January 12, we can move forward with confidence, clarity, courage, and determination.
Mercury turns direct on January 18 at 8º19’ Capricorn with a shadow period remaining until February 7, 2023. This degree is symbolized by: “An Angel carrying a harp”. The time we have been waiting for has arrived. As we have sown, so shall we reap. A glorious future is awaiting those who have done their homework, yet not so much so for those who haven’t.
Uranus turns direct on January 21, 2023. Its shadow period remains until May 9, 2023. The degrees traveled in January (15º09’-14º57’ Taurus) are represented by: “An old teacher fails to interest his pupils in traditional knowledge” and “Head covered with a rakish silk hat, muffled against the cold, a man braves the storm”. Change has swept over every aspect of society and our personal lives. The 2017-2022 period is now behind us with all its darkness and corruption. We have weathered the storms and found different directions for ourselves. The answers are not in our past, but in our future. A new world is now starting to open which will be even more obvious in March when Saturn and Pluto both change signs.

This month’s intentional meditation starts on Friday 1/6. Let us take out as many blank sheets of paper as we have intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they basked in the light of the Full Moon in Cancer at exactly 3:08 PM. Once that moment passes, let us gather our Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.
On Saturday 1/21, 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 12:53 PM for the New Moon in Aquarius. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….

Sunday 1/1: Mercury Sextile Neptune (10:44 PM)
A day to daydream, watch a feel-good movie, read an inspiring book, spend time in quiet contemplation, and generally be kind to ourselves. Any project requiring imagination is enhanced. Paperwork demanding attention to details should be avoided. Today, we should also beware of people who are addicted to drugs, alcohol, or are in any way trying to escape reality.
Wednesday 1/4: Venus Sextile Jupiter (1:08 AM)
A day that brings warmth, comfort, adventurousness, and positive energies. Our tolerance, enthusiasm, and optimism create great opportunities to expand our social life. A friend may turn out to be a potential lover. We should however beware of spending more money than strictly necessary or getting stuck in an overly formal and boring event.
Thursday 1/5: Sun Trine Uranus (8:43 AM)
A day to expect the unexpected. New situations abound. Plans change suddenly. The more innovative, individualistic, and daring we are, the more exciting this day will be.
Saturday 1/7: Sun Conjunct Mercury (4:57 AM)
A pleasant day. Our mind is active. We are eager to learn. Great for writing e-mails, making phone calls, starting a new class, taking a small trip, trying something different, and making new acquaintances.
Sunday 1/8: Mercury Trine Uranus (3:23 PM)
Being very present to the moment is essential today. Sudden changes of plans, unexpected occurrences, unusual people, strange circumstances speed up the pace of this exciting day that helps us connect dots in a different way. An old friend may reemerge enabling us to measure how much progress has been made.
Monday 1/9: Venus Trine Mars (7:22 AM)
A harmonious balance of the masculine and the feminine lead to pleasant social exchanges. An elegant gathering, getting together with some good friends, or a nice artistic event are fun. We feel approved, warmth, and affection.
Friday 1/13: Sun Sextile Neptune (6:11 AM)
Thoughtful consideration to the needs of others helps us achieve harmony in our relationships. Quiet time in our own company enables us to regain our serenity and regenerate. Our soul is soothed by music and beauty.
Saturday 1/14: Venus Square Uranus (5:22 PM)
Jumping impulsively into a new, volatile, potentially destructive relationship could go completely against our best interests. It could estrange us from the people who truly love us while bringing only a very short-lived sense of excitement. Our finances could be erratic.
Wednesday 1/18: Sun Conjunct Pluto (6:44 AM)
Our powers of leadership are enhanced. Through our ability to X-ray situations and people, we bring out the best in others and create circumstances that are to everyone’s advantage. Those who leave us today were hiding behind a mask.
Sunday 1/22: Venus Conjunct Saturn (2:13 PM)
A day to confront our relationship dreams with reality. A shaky connection will dissolve while a solid one becomes stronger. Great for making a real commitment that will endure the test of time.
Tuesday 1/24: Sun Sextile Jupiter (5:30 PM)
Our positive energy, faith, loyalty, high moral values, and integrity open valuable doors. Today, we may create wonderful connections with people in positions of authority who help us reach our dreams. Financial abundance is ours if we don’t fall prey to extravagance.
Sunday 1/29: Sun Trine Mars (5:45 PM), Mercury Trine Uranus (6:16 PM)
We feel confident, dynamic, courageous, and active. We make daring decisions and meet competition head-on. Our leadership abilities make others believe in us. Great for any activity requiring much physical stamina. Regarding Mercury Trine Uranus, kindly refer to January 8th.
Monday 1/2: Venus enters Aquarius (6:09 PM) till January 26
During the next 3 weeks, friendship prevails over love. We seek to find a balance between intimacy and freedom. Remaining true to our individuality is the key to a deeply committed relationship. Being open to an unusual way of relating or becoming involved with someone completely different from anyone we have ever known, creates excitement, exposing us to new ideas, different kinds of people, and unexpected ways of living.
Friday 1/20: the Sun enters Aquarius (12:30 AM) till February 18 (2:34 PM)
During the next month, eccentricity, uniqueness, friendship, freedom, and excitement are key features. We are drawn to futuristic ideas and humanitarian endeavors. Welcoming the unusual in both our consciousness and our lives, opens us to unexpected horizons.
Thursday 1/26: Venus enters Pisces (6:33 PM) till February 19 at 11:56 PM
During the next 3 weeks, our empathy and romantic streak are greatly enhanced. We are prone to daydreaming and seek to fall in love with someone we feel a deep soul connection with. The suffering of those less fortunate than ourselves touches us so profoundly that we may be drawn to joining a charitable organization. A very blessed time for artists who are more inspired than usual. Beauty in all its forms brings enchantment.
Wishing you an exciting New Year!
In Loving Light.
