Hello lovely ones and happy February!
I don't know about you, but I am still recovering from the Leo Lunar eclipse...hello Full Moon insomnia!
Such a fiery intense energy to end the first month of 2018 and for February to start!
Whilst January can often feel like the slowest month of the year (or is it just me?!) the year is going to now pick up pace considerably...
Seriously, we may find ourselves blinking and suddenly it is the Spring Equinox and a whole new season!
Speaking of seasons, yesterday's Leo lunar eclipse officially started off eclipse season and Soulstrology tells us that the Leo eclipse serves as the energetic seed for the month of February.
As I am sure you all know by now, eclipse season brings changes, often unexpected, sometimes welcome, sometimes not..
Either way, it heralds a new season of life and new beginnings, many of which are birthed from necessary endings.
As many of you know by now, my mantra (and indeed the essence of my entire Alchemy practice) is that change is the only constant.
As human beings we so often resist change.
We welcome certain changes and shifts which reflect the manifestation of our goals but other than that we often fear the impermanence of life.
However this fear of change is often short sighted and does not serve us.
It has us clinging to situations (and people!) which are past their sell by date and has us stuck in a rut.
The result is that we often prevent our blessings from manifesting as we stubbornly resist the flow of life, convinced we know better, when more often than not, we don't!
I can speak from personal experience to say I have delayed (sometimes outright blocked) some of my biggest blessings coming my way, due to my absolute resistance to change and fear of the unknown.
When sudden 'bad' changes have taken place I have fought with every bit of my energy to preserve the status quo and to cling to what I have known, even when it wasn't truly making me happy.
With hindsight I have been able to see that had I have had stronger faith (faith in myself, faith in the universe, faith in a higher power) then I would have been able to flow more gracefully with the winds of change and would have embraced my destiny more swiftly.
Which leads me onto the Soulstrology theme for February 2018.
This month we are asked to flow with the currents of change.
For some the cosmos brings lots of welcome change this month and you happily dive into the new chapter of life.
But for others the change may not be so welcome and may appears as obstacles or even punishments.
Soulstrology says that just as water flows around rocks, so too we are asked to flow around obstacles.
We must not let fear fuel us into forcing and bending life in a direction which we think serves us, because the truth is that we may not be seeing the bigger picture and what is truly for our highest good (and indeed the greater good).
Life may not be punishing us but instead gently pushing us to where we need to go....
In February 2018 we need to flow with faith.
Mantra of the month:
I trust the process of life and know that change, even unexpected/unwanted change is part of that process.
I choose to believe that all changes this month will ultimately unfold for my best.
I choose faith as my fuel for navigating the month ahead.
I embrace the rivers of change and flow with them with faith.
As always I will write detailed blogs for both the New and Full Moons.
Members can expect weekly cosmic updates and more detailed information for their zodiac sign for both the Full and New Moons and some extra special mini soundbaths for daily use (recording this weekend).
Also....I am finally (I was unwell so had to reschedule/push back the launch date) recording the first episode of my Alchemy with Ambi podcast this weekend!
Excited and terrified in equal measure but know I want to share more and in a different format.
First episode will come out on Aquarius Solar Eclipse....eek!
