February Chakrubscopes and Signs of Growth
As of February 1, we’re halfway through winter and well on our way to the beginning of spring (the opposite is true if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere). This midpoint between seasons is celebrated as Imbolc in Pagan traditions, with participants hosting bonfires and cleansing their homes as they call in the abundance of spring. Cold, dreary weather can diminish any spirit and Imbolc serves as a reminder that warmer, brighter days are ahead.
As we look forward to the new growth of spring, we might also find a spark simmering within. The dreams we’ve spent the winter months refining are almost ready to take shape in the physical world. On February 4, a new moon in Aquarius encourages us to be innovative and inclusive as we envision the future.
However you feel about Valentine’s Day, it’s difficult to avoid the constant messaging around love and romance. Instead of feeling resentful, let it be an opportunity to evaluate how you are in relationship to yourself and others. Remind yourself through loving acts that you are capable of fulfilling all your needs -- a partner is meant to complement your life, not complete it.
The sun moves into the receptive waters of Pisces on February 19, further inspiring you to visualize the upcoming growth of spring. In its highest expression, Pisces is collaborative, imaginative, and creative. In its lowest expression, this mutable water sign is co-dependent, confused, and prone to escapism. Balance an open mind with appropriate discernment and you’ll make it through Pisces season just fine.
A Virgo full moon arrives on the same day, asking us to get into the nitty-gritty details of our 2019 plans. This is a great time to reassess health goals or outline spring projects.
Chakrubscopes are a unique combination of astrology, crystal healing, and tarot wisdom, with affirmations to support you throughout the month. Please read your sun, moon, and rising signs if you know them.
