Slow and Steady…There is No Race

Be Fully Here to Receive the Gifts All Around You

February is a month when we get to call “time out” on this crazy game of life. It doesn’t mean we’re no longer in the game, it just means we get a chance to catch our breath and get back in touch with who we are, and what we’re here to do. No team ever won a championship without organization, strategy, and guidance. That’s what this month is about: taking a break from the action and refocusing your efforts on playing your game.

It’s all about getting grounded this month, almost too grounded. While deepening your roots will help you withstand storms, and receive more nourishment from our beautiful earth, remember that roots grow down so that branches can grow up and out. 

Apophyllite, with its high, high, high vibration is the perfect companion to help you reach those greater spiritual heights. While you may not make tangible leaps and bounds this month, connecting regularly with Apophyllite will ensure that you receive the guidance you need in order to grow when the time is right. 
Meditate with a piece of Apophyllite on your 3rd eye to attune to the higher dimensions and receive insight and wisdom from your guides, angels, and other beings of light. This sweet stone also helps to clear debris from your subtle energy body, which can help you feel less weighed down, even while you face the “chop wood, carry water” energies this month brings.

An Apophyllite cluster on your desk can help you navigate through long days at work and give you that little boost of joy and light you need to make it through. You may also feel a bit more connection to your inner child while working with Apophyllite, as it helps you attune to the pure innocence within you.

If you would like to use the introspective energies of this month (especially during Mercury retrograde) to go deeper within, holding an Apophyllite cluster can help you tap into and release cellular density surrounding issues of childhood traumas. You may choose to seek facilitation from a crystal or vibrational healing practitioner to assist you with this process.

No matter what February conjures within and without for you, Apophyllite is certain to help you feel lighter, brighter, and more divinely connected. May this potent crystal bring you levity and joy throughout this month of restoration and introspection.
AFFIRMATION OF THE MONTH
I am worthy of all the gifts the Universe has in store for me.
I choose to align my choices with my own inner wisdom and truth.
I cultivate joy through conscious participation in the present moment.

Planetary Overview for the month of
January 2020

For most of us, January launched us into a new year and a new decade with fervor. We made commitments to better our health, our finances, or our relationships. We faced pressure from all sides as the old way was revealed to be no longer an option for us. The Universe nudged us in the direction of our highest potential, but to us it may have felt like a forceful shove. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a breather.

Luckily, February provides just that. A sweet, gentle month full of opportunities to slow down, rest, restore, and reconnect to our core are offered to us now. It is a leap year as well this year, which means we get an extra day of warm, soft February energy to enjoy. This month carries an overall vibration of abundance, stability, and the open invitation to tap into our well of infinite potential. 

Do we have to act on that potential right this minute? No. In fact, February would rather have us sit with the feeling of divine power, desire, and passion that resides within us. Get to know it, listen to what it has to say. Perhaps it has a message for you – a piece of wisdom or guidance that adjusts your direction just enough to align you with your highest good. New opportunities are being brought forth now, and though you may not see them until Spring is upon us, it is chilly, wintry February that gives us the chance to come into our own so that we are ready to receive the gifts when they arrive.

🌕♌ On February 8th we have a Full Moon in Leo. We welcome strengthening vibrations during this time and, should we choose it, these fiery frequencies can help us cultivate more confidence in our chosen path, more clarity in our “why” for walking in the direction we desire. It may also help us to see where we have placed people or obligations in our lives that we thought were in alignment but simply…are not. While we do not need to take drastic action to remove anything, the power of awareness may organically shift your decision-making process enough to allow what doesn’t serve you to slough off on their own.

If you are one who strives toward constant achievement – and who feels like a failure if the achievement isn’t reached right now, now, now – this Full Moon offers you the chance to sit with the part of yourself that feels that way and perhaps learn what it is that causes that need to accomplish. It is wonderful to gain, to earn, to rise, but is that the only way to have value or significance? If you were to rest, to cease all striving, or desire to strive even for an hour, what do you believe would happen? 

Spirit knows that you have a bright, brilliant future and that at any given moment you have exactly what you need in order to take the next step. That is all the Spirit asks of you – to participate in your next step. You do not need to do it all at once, nor is that even possible. Even if you are unclear about where you are going or why, you can trust that Spirit will guide you – but you must be in the moment in order to hear its direction.

On the 16th of the month, Mars moves into Capricorn. What would normally be a passionate, driven alignment, instead brings a dragging, trudging energy. Many planets are in earth signs at this time, which grounds us so far down that we may feel stuck. However, this is perhaps the greatest gift of all. We have spent much of the last year – and will spend more time in months to come – connecting with the upper realms, deepening into our intuition, opening to loftier aspects of divinity. But we are here, on the earth, in our bodies so that we can experience all that can only be experienced in physical form. While it is important to connect with the Divine, and to unite with its wisdom, we must root down into our experience and take life as it come – moment by moment.

That being said, if you are feeling stuck to the point of stagnancy, connect with an Apophyllite pyramid or cluster. Meditating with this high vibrational stone will raise your overall vibration and attune you with higher dimensional realities. From this higher frequency, you may receive direct guidance from your angels, or other beings of light. Just remember to root into the earth before your meditation, and to ground down afterwards as well so that you can be fully present once your meditation is complete.

On February 18th we have our first Mercury Retrograde of the year. This is also the day the Sun moves into Pisces. We will experience this retrograde until March 10th. During this time Mercury will move through Pisces and Aquarius, giving us a chance to go within in order to expand our awareness and perspective without. 

This is also a time to celebrate! Even if you have been feeling like nothing you want has come to pass or that you’re not where you want to be, use these retrograde energies to reflect upon what good has come from the first portion of this year. It is a common habit for us to focus on the negative and thereby forget the positive, and this can be combatted with our commitment to celebrating ourselves for even the smallest, most seemingly insignificant moment of growth. Get together with family or friends, laugh, play games, enjoy good food and each other’s company. 

Remember that life is meant to be…whatever it is right now! Even if you are struggling right now, it is a super state that can be reached to at once feel that sense of struggle, or even of despair and still feel joy and levity. Cry while you laugh or laugh while you cry – that is the dance of life sometimes, and even that deserves to be celebrated!

The Pisces New Moon arrives on February 23rd, preparing the way for the beginning of the Zodiac calendar. Pisces is wise, emotional, reflective, and passive – but not inactive. It offers us the chance to receive and to learn more about what we can give. 

Generosity’s shadow side is that we can give, give, give, and ultimately deplete ourselves. Pisces teaches us that it is not giving indiscriminately but giving with conscious intent that allows us to be constantly fulfilled by our own emptying. What is in your heart that you are meant to contribute? What do you have to add to the conversation, but have henceforth kept to yourself? Where have you exhausted yourself of energy from having invested too much in people and activities that do not align with the truth of your heart?

It can be the bravest thing in the world to face yourself and see where you have fooled yourself into false beliefs. We can easily shame ourselves as we decree these self-deceptions “mistakes,” yet, they are only there as self-protection. We do what we feel we must do to survive until the day comes when we are ready to truly see who we are, and then to act on that truth, with all the trust in the world in the higher divine intelligence that whispers, “yes, yes, you can do it.”

May this month be one of rest, reflection, and compassionate truth. You deserve every gift the Universe has in store for you. May you open to receive them. May you open to receive more of yourself as the marvelous, heavenly being that you are.
