Astrological Correspondence: Sun

The Sun card stands as a symbol for the paternal, masculine energy, the cosmic father, and brotherly love. Being regarded as the primary source of life, light, and warmth, the Sun banishes the darkness so that we may see our path clearly and are enlightened within. As a result, we can see the truth and understand its impact. The Sun card is representative of energy, good health, virility, opportunity, generosity, self-confidence, success, marriage, children, and material wealth. These positive elements provide us with the confidence that we will be successful in all our endeavors, be it in the spiritual, material, or emotional realm. We need to be aware of the negative elements such as boisterousness, arrogance, vanity, and false appearance that can induce failure or uncertainty.

This card is your permission to reveal your strength. You can show someone that you can deal with a situation with confidence today. If necessary, this card reassures you of your own power. If single, the Tarot’s Strength selected you to let you know that ‘next time’ you will enter into a new union as an equal partner. As one-half of a couple, you are an equal partner.

Your Daily Egyptian Tarot Card for February 1

The Star

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Star has risen above the masses and shines down upon you from above. It is what you dream on and whisper your hopes to. This is why the Star card can denote success coming to as an artist, because the artist in you is what can make your dreams come true. When your dreams come true, you immediately forget most of the pain you have suffered getting here. The Star card says keep on dreaming, because dreams really do come true.

Your Egyptian Love Tarot Card for February 1

The Hanged Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hanged Man card can sometimes make you feel like you are at the mercy of outside forces. If you feel like a victim in regard to love and romance in your life right now, be assured that these feelings won’t last forever. In the short-term, meditation, prayer, and spending time in reflection will help you move through this period more gracefully and in a more open frame of mind.

 

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscope for Saturday, February 2

Your Daily Horoscope for Saturday, February 2

By Kelli Fox

Aries

March 21- April 19

You’re hardly in the mood to get down to business today, but buckle down anyway, and tackle whatever is on your to-do list. If you don’t, a pessimistic mood could set in before you know it. Soon you’ll be snapping at your coworker or spouse — and you’ll only regret it later. But working long and hard toward a particular goal that means a lot to you can help you avoid that type of issue.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

It’s time to start reining in your spending and eating habits. It’s just so easy for you to slip into excessive behaviours — spending too much on food and other treats for yourself and your friends, or eating far too many goodies at parties or in the break room at work. But today is a good day to get back on track. You’re feeling grounded and you know what to do.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

It could take time to get used to the new energy moving in today. You’re feeling less excited and excitable than you have been; you may even be in a slight slump. Any financial worries you may have don’t help much, either. If you’re concerned for your future or your career status, spend some time today revisiting your budget or making solid plans for your next big steps in life. You’ll feel better.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

Today, serious doubts creep into your consciousness about money and the future. Suddenly, you’re feeling worried, especially if you know you’ve been living outside your means recently. But don’t waste too much time feeling pessimistic about your current financial or career status. Instead, sit down and make a plan to pay off any credit card debt and save money for the future. Establishing a solid plan will make you feel more in control.

Leo

July 23-August 22

There could be a stark contrast between recent fun and the sombre mood that descends over you today. Suddenly, life seems a little less colourful, and that may depress you. But try not to give in to discouraged thinking. Isn’t it good to have a little break from all the fun? Now you can get your budget under control and set up a plan to pay off credit card debt.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

A sober, hardworking mood sets in today, and you’re secretly glad — or, perhaps not so secretly. The frivolous fun and speculative ventures of the past few days have made you nervous, especially if spending extra money was involved. But now you can revisit your budget and get back on track, and this fills you with a sense of purpose. You’re comfortable working within limits you understand, so enjoy it today.

Libra

September 23-October 22

A sombre mood descends today, which is especially noticeable after the all fun of recent weeks. You might even feel a little down or discouraged, but if you tap into the side of your nature that responds well to the need for balance, you’ll feel better. Now you can make up for any recent excessive behaviours. That’s right, Libra — it’s time to start living within your means again. Make a plan and stick to it.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

You’re enjoying a surge of energy and purpose today. Even if you don’t have to go to the office or studio, you’re still thinking about work — what projects you plan to focus on next, and how much you’ll charge for your services. You have a strong sense of your own self-worth, and that’s a good thing. Creating a secure future means properly valuing the contributions you make to the world.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Has the excitement of the past few days caught up with you? You’re certainly feeling a bit low-energy, which is unusual for you. Follow your body’s cues. Strike a balance today between being active and laying low. The current energy is both grounding and motivating, so spend the morning working quietly toward a long-term goal. Then get some endurance-based exercise in the afternoon, such as a long walk or run.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

You’re starting a brand-new cycle of motion and motivation, one that will play out for the next month. What a wonderful, uncommon confluence of energies! Be sure to take advantage. You’re a master at achieving your goals, so take some steps toward a meaningful one today. Stay grounded, too. Keep up your energy with endurance-based exercise, such as running, walking or yoga.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You’re a thinker by nature, but focus today on staying grounded in your body. Go for a long walk or do some yoga on your living room floor. Eat foods that are densely nutritious. Then focus on your future. It’s time to take some solid steps toward a more secure life, whether that means adjusting your budget, looking for a new, better job, enrolling in classes or anything else that will improve your standing.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Low energy could catch up with you today. Maybe it’s all the recent fun, and the stress, too. Take today to rest and recuperate as much as your schedule allows. Be realistic about your feelings, your relationships and your general life situation, but avoid pessimistic thinking. If you slip into gloomy thoughts, distract yourself with practical tasks around the house, such as cleaning or balancing your checkbook.

Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, February 1

Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, February 1

By Kelli Fox

Aries

March 21- April 19

You may have to slow down a little today — not the easiest thing for someone whose instinct is to ram their way through life! But look on the bright side. All those little details you usually don’t have time for are much more noticeable when you’re not running at breakneck speed. And that fine print can make or break a deal in the long run, so do yourself a favour now and ease up on the gas.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

This should be a good day for you. You’re productive and practical, and being grounded feels right. Your timing is excellent, and you’re firm and steady. Others look up to you for advice, and it’s no wonder — not only do you give savvy pointers, you also encourage others and share your handy pool of resources. You’ll take yourself far today. Just remember to sleep tonight!

Gemini

May 21-June 21

Go briskly about your business today. Attend to the practical concerns of your life, no matter how widespread they might be. If you’re spreading yourself too thin, consider getting help. Make a list of the things you need assistance with, and then keep your eyes open. Someone may cross your path who meets your needs. Be ready to approach them with a sensible offer when they come along.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

Devote yourself today to creating a secure future for yourself and your loved ones. Whether that means putting money in the bank, cleaning your home or office, or taking care of business and personal relationships, you’re all over it. If outer circumstances don’t force you to take charge of these matters, your ‘inner parent’ will. There’s just no escaping the sense of duty and devotion today.

Leo

July 23-August 22

Your leadership skills are tested today, as some person or condition in your life forces you to hold the line. Look at it this way: You’re exercising your inner strength and character. Just like building muscle mass, these qualities get stronger when you use them, so look at this as an opportunity to assert your authority and position. People look up to you when you do.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Work is an intense, focused endeavour today. Details are no match for your hawk-like vision or your attention to the fine print. You’ll leave others in the dust as you work circles around them, barely taking a break. You subsist on snacks, even when there’s a full lunch spread in the conference room — you’re just too busy to partake! Take a deep breath, ground yourself and take a break. You’ll actually get more done that way.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You want to be liked, respected and admired by your peers. You aren’t going for glory, but you do want your efforts on behalf of others to be noticed and appreciated. Today, apply yourself to this seemingly invisible work, and trust that it’s less invisible than you realise. Important people are seeing what you’re up to, and you do a lot of good when you use your energy to help people less fortunate than you.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

You feel good about being so in control of your life today. You feel a solid sense of satisfaction as you roll up your sleeves and get to work. With this attitude, you can get a lot done. Organise yourself early by making a prioritise list of all your tasks, and check each one off as you accomplish it. You’ll make great headway today, and sleep really well tonight.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Do more than just dream about the future. Now, while your creative energy is strong, think seriously about what you really want to do, create or achieve in the coming weeks, months and years. Picture yourself in the future and consider what you need to do now to make it happen. Let this guide your decisions in the foreseeable future, so your dream becomes tangible reality.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

You’re forging ahead with great energy, surefooted as you head toward your goals. Moving forward at this slow, steady pace, you’re sure to make substantial gains by the end of the day. Of course, you’ve kept up this effort for several days now. By evening, call it good enough. Rest your body, even if your mind doesn’t want to cooperate. Remember practical activities like exercising, eating and sleeping. These are important for keeping your body strong.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You’re squirming today against some external attempt to confine your movements or your creativity. Of course, you’re ultra-sensitive to any type of restriction, so this certainly doesn’t sit well with you. Whether it’s something as straightforward as a traffic jam or as complicated as a relationship doesn’t matter. It’s not the exact situation that matters as much as your reaction to it. Go for the mature, civilised approach today.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Be sure to come down to earth for at least a little while before the day is over. You’re drifting through life in your usual state of dreamy wonder, despite the serious atmosphere surrounding you, and it’ll be hard to keep your feet on the ground. At least everyone who knows you knows what to expect, so they’ll be tolerant if you seem a little spaced out.

Education and teaching are both strong in your chart, so if you were thinking of learning a new skill, then this is the time to do so with success.  You have felt the need to move on from past habits for a while now.   You realise that in order to be happy, you have to acknowledge what makes you happy. This is something you were not able to do last year, due to the emotional pressure you had placed on you. Times have changed and so have situations. Being open to meeting new faces between the 12th and 19th can have life changing results.  Ring now to find out what your stars hold.

You also discover that by being the bigger person you reveal who really knew more than they said.  Forms you sign at this time can and will lead you to a better life. You just have to promise to be dedicated.  Mars makes it hard for you to see others point of view the first week of January. Ring now to hear how you can best keep an open mind.

Ring now for help.

 

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

The stars tell me how unsettled you’ve been of late and how you’ve spent far to much of your time trying to please everyone instead of starting at the obvious beginning which was in front of you.  Luckily for you Jupiter hands you the gift of charm and you are able to talk even the most difficult faces into helping you this month. Careful of leading on someone who never was and never will be worthy of your charms. Why waste any more time Virgo?   Home affairs get stressful from the 24th as a close one attempts to make a change that will not come to fruition. Ring now for insight.

 

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Don’t feel stranded by the situation you have been left in.  Instesad try to focus on what can be done with what is left before you. I like your life like this. There is a more simplified feel to it which will make it less stressful and will also mean you will not have to offend quite so many people by turning them down. You are not usually a sign who is so easily manipulated, so why start now?  I know you had the wind taken out of your sails but this new year sees you wiser than ever before, so hold your head high. Ring now to hear why this is such a life changing year in love.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Every person is the architect of their own future. It appears from your stars that you have done a very good job of living someone else’s life the last eighteen months.  That all changes this year though as you wake up and smell….life! You’re finally ready to start living, instead of existing.  There seems to be a connection with a new place which is coming up more and more in your stars and which could soon be a permanent part of your routine and life.  Family need more time to come to terms with your new needs. Ring now so I can help you find the patience I know you possess.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Do you have that feeling like you have forgotten something important but you don’t know what it is?  That’s your future calling Sagittarius and it’s waiting for you to make up your mind about what you really want.   Last year it felt as you were walking two steps forward and one step back.  No more though as you don’t want to be that person anymore and you don’t have to be.  A friendship has changed. Could it be a romance. Ring now to hear which sign is your match made in heaven.

 

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

The younger generation may have disappointed you, but this month gives you the chance to reconnect and to find some common ground. Your career comes under the spotlight from the 14th and you come up with better ways to utilise your skills and to use them to their full advantage.  Knowing how far you are willing to go in a financial dealing must be a decision you reach by the 20th, for reasons which will become apparent soon enough.   Fellow Capricorns link to invites which can put the spring back in your step. Ring now to find out more about your stars and future.

 

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

A strong positive self image is the best possible preperation for success.  You said you would support those you love and you did. In fact you lost most of the time last year for you by doing so.  Now it’s your time and the sooner you take this fact on board, the happier you will be and the less guilty you will feel.  Being on time or first meetings, be they professional or personal is essential to their success and you’ll understand why soon enough.   A  place from your past comes to mind with someone who contacts you.  Ring now to hear why this could be the reason you should make a trip!

 

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

There seems to be far too much pressure on you lately and you would be wise to enter this month with a firm plan in mind as to what needs to take priority.  Being fair to younger faces is vital to your success or they could shut you out for months and not just weeks to come.  Saturn brings good news regarding the situation of an older face you have not been able to be as much help to lately.  Life is beginning to take on some semblance of order and I think you’re going to love the organised chaos that is ahead.  Ring now to hear what I think is making you so forgetful lately.

Your Darks Stars Horoscopes for the Month of February

Your Darks Stars Horoscopes for the Month of February

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES

All change! Your energy source, Mars, moves into money-minded Taurus on Valentine’s Day, chiming with magnetic Venus in Capricorn for some major financial focus this February. It’s Lunar New Year too (4th-5th), with a new Moon sparking new starts for your contacts, shared projects, and group creativity. Between 20th – 24th of the month some serious propositions or turning points crop up for many of you. You’ll be thinking about your relationships, and what you’ve invested in them in emotional, practical, and financial terms. Some of those connections will be professional, others may be about family or partners. What would you like to change? What do you need to say to someone? Everything’s up in the air between 9th – 14th February, so avoid over-reacting then. Answers become clear by the beginning of March, meanwhile, take it one step at a time and resist impulsive decisions. You need more information before you can finalise your long-term plans. You may have to wait until April, but it will be worth it.

 

TAURUS

Mars returns to Taurus for the first time since March 2017. It puts a spring in your step, but may prompt argumentative encounters with others too. Perhaps you need to air your views or speak your mind to someone? Take care though, as the beginning of February is a fertile moment for your career, your hopes, and your wishes. If you fancy studying something, planning a trip, or working with foreign companies, this is a lively and interesting phase for you. You could impress someone who’ll help you, or receive funding or cash for a special project. Towards the end of the month, with the Sun in musical, creative Pisces, there’s plenty of inspiration, smiling faces, or even romantic moments. What happens then crystallises around the glamorous new Moon at the beginning of March. So why not keep your eyes on those gorgeous far horizons, and see where they might take you? Surprising yourself and others is one of 2019’s big themes.

 

GEMINI

You’ll want a wider world this February – exploring something or somewhere new is irresistible, especially early in the month. The upbeat new Moon (4th) brings interesting possibilities for you and those close to you. You could be discussing a holiday, or an old friend or partner may be offered a job in another town or country. Expect the unexpected between 9th – 14th February, and be prepared to change your plans or accept spontaneous offers and invitations. Much news and gossip follows, so keep an open mind and hold off on making big commitments if you possibly can. Shared finances tend to spring surprises, and shared projects are also liable to shift and change quite rapidly all month long. You love change, so should be able to surf the waves with your usual flair. The new Moon in early March brings powerful intuitive, glamorous energies, and many of you will want to be free to see where that takes you. The world’s your oyster.

 

 

CANCER

Your everyday life brings a smile to your face early in February. You could find a new way to generate cash, or discover that something you own is more valuable than you ever imagined. Partners in love, and at work, play an important role too – with helpful, positive changes growing from conversations, particularly towards the end of February. You could have to make some swift decisions at that time, or find your career direction takes an unexpected turn. February’s new Moon (4th) and full Moon (19th) bring surges of energy for you to use as you wish. The new Moon in Aquarius would be helpful for any creative projects and money-making schemes, while the Virgo full Moon is chatty, thought-provoking, and favours communication and writing. Once Mars is in Taurus, from Valentine’s Day until the end of March, you can start to firm up plans involving others – whether that’s a big personal celebration, or a work or neighbourhood project.

 

LEO

The Sun in your opposite sign, Aquarius, means that you’re at one of those annual astrological turning points. It’s a helpful moment to look back over the past six months, and see what you’re pleased with and what you’d like to change. You can take advantage of the new Moon on 4th February to write a wish list, or clear out anything that’s cluttering up your mind or home. Some potent fiery energy flows from Mars in Aries, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in free-spirited Sagittarius, so why not warm yourself and your sunny spirit beside the planetary fireside? A little time to dream about the year ahead could be so productive, and if your creativity and playful nature has been stifled in any way you’ll feel revitalised. Continue to keep an eye on what you value most, and be cautious when it comes to your finances – including lending money to anyone.

 

VIRGO

One of the big keys to progress this spring is found in your relationships and connections. A love relationship could be moving into a more committed phase, or your working life benefits in many ways from teamwork and partnerships. What’s not working out for you can be tweaked and talked about, or ended altogether. And with magnetic Venus in Capricorn, you can channel fresh imagination into your romantic and creative life. The days between the 15th – 24th are rich with potential, energy and intensity, with that Virgo full Moon (19th) marking a good moment for sweeping away the remains of last year and making space for new beginnings. Keep communicating, for with Mercury in sensitive Pisces others will be keen to discuss things with you. When Mars enters Taurus on the 14th, the down-to-earth side of your personality is even more enhanced and supported. You’ll have time to fine-tune everything in March when Mercury is retrograde. Meanwhile, why not dream big?

 

LIBRA

There’s a big emphasis on your home, roots, family and partners this month. Certain things are due to be refreshed or changed, with some of you planning a move and others exploring your DNA story or family history. You could work from home more often, or find ways to make money from your home. These are ongoing themes for much of this year – so expect some transformations, whether dramatic or low-key. Any spiky moments with partners should settle down once Mars enters Taurus on sweet Valentine’s Day, but someone close could talk or act out of character and surprise you before the end of the month. Your naturally romantic, artistic nature is boosted by a lively new Moon in Aquarius (4th), so do grab some time for yourself and allow these feelings to bloom a little. You’ve got a lot on your plate too, and probably need to cut back a bit – what’s needed should be in sharp focus between 12th – 23rd February.

 

SCORPIO

Your past has much to say to you this month. And for many Scorpios it’s helpful to talk things through with close partners in love, or at work. If you’ve been playing your cards close to your chest, even more reason to be a little more open about what you think and feel. You’re on the brink of a new phase for all your connections, and this is just the start. You have much charm, creativity, and intuitive understanding bubbling up this month, and once the Sun enters dreamy Pisces (18th) you’ll benefit from nurturing that magnetic side of yourself. Towards the end of February and beginning of March you’ll see how things might develop in love, with any children you might have, or with creative projects you’re involved in. This is a good time for shared projects, but you may feel as if you haven’t got the control you usually prefer. Yet things are very much in transition, so wise Scorpios will step aside and not try to push the river.

 

SAGITTARIUS

If you need a fortunate moment to begin something, a beautiful link between the Sun and Jupiter between 6th – 9th February is an optimistic moment to pick. The new Moon in Aquarius on the 4th also radiates interesting possibilities for you, and looks like a positive time to promote yourself, get in touch with people, or write about what you’re doing. Jupiter may be wildly expansive in Sagittarius, but you do need to co-operate with what’s going on in the cosmos, and work with it. Those fabulous feel-good vibrations can simply make you dreamy, vague, greedy or lazy! Know that you can attract all the help you need if you reach out and clarify what you want. Sorting out money matters or pushing your hopes forward goes well with Venus in Capricorn, but again – aim for as much clarity and definition as you can. Neptune is bringing you glamour and intuitive moves, but also confusion and chaos if you don’t pay attention. As you head for a pivotal new Moon at the start of March, get all your ducks in a row and all will be well.

 

CAPRICORN

The prevailing astrological weather is still quite earthy, with Venus, Saturn and Pluto in your sign. And Mars offers practical drive and support from the 14th when he enters money magnet Taurus for a good long stay. So you’re all set to weather the bumpy bits this month, particularly those involving your home, family, and perhaps your wider “family” at work. These awkward moments are most likely during the first two weeks, so if you need to schedule important meetings, home repairs, or family discussions, it could be wise to wait until just after mid-month. You can be extra charming and persuasive then, particularly if your work involves health care, the arts, charity or entertainment. A lovely link between Mars and the Sun ends February with a stunning view or revelation of some kind. Even if it’s only a photo, the vista you’ll see is one that will come to mean a great deal to you later on this year.

 

AQUARIUS

Your birthday month stretches from 20th January to 18th February, when the Sun moves into flexible Pisces. An energetic new Moon in Aquarius gives you another “new year” boost on the 4th too, and is a wonderful time to make plans or create a wish list. So what would you like to do this year? Why not let your imagination run free for a while? Yes, you’ve got responsibilities and limitations, but there could be all sorts of possibilities you haven’t allowed yourself to consider. Some of those contain the seeds of a more fulfilling life. Inspiration flows your way between the 10th – 18th, when spontaneous meetings, conversations with friends, or short journeys are full of potential if you care to look for it. Your mighty ruler, Uranus, is changing signs in March bringing echoes of last summer for some of you, and opening up a new era for all.

 

PISCES

The Sun enters Pisces on 18th February, beginning your birthday month. Before that, you’ll probably want to review the past year and mull over what’s happened, or what’s not happened. If you need to let go of anything – from a shabby old jumper to an unhelpful situation – then the full Virgo Moon on 19th February is a good time to begin. There’s a powerful, magical new Moon in Pisces on 6th March just overflowing with inspiration – if you create a clear path over the next few weeks, you’ll be ready to take full advantage of this potent moment. Others are ready to help you too, with old friends and contacts keen to see you, make useful suggestions, or even offer you some interesting opportunities. Generous Jupiter in Sagittarius brings a positive glow to your hopes and wishes this year, but of course you must take practical steps towards making things happen. Lady Luck is on your side, and if you work with her you can achieve miracles.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for February 1

COSMIC CALENDAR

Themes associated with the asteroid Vesta are energized due to this celestial orb entering Pisces (3:05 a.m.) and then quickly forming a frictional, 45-degree link to Saturn in Capricorn (3:33 a.m.). Focus your attention on safety and security measures, home and hearth, investments and insurance coverage, as well as sisterhood bonds and fellowship gatherings. Nurturing loved ones with a tender touch makes sense in sync with Mercury forming an inspirational, 72-degree tie with maternal Ceres (7:01 a.m.) and Juno contacting Neptune via the same type of 72-degree rapport (1:36 p.m.).

Steer clear of rising tensions and emotional upheavals later on since Mars in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn (7:21 p.m.), the moon in Capricorn makes its monthly conjunction with karmic Saturn (10:58 p.m.), and the sun in Aquarius forms an abrasive, 45-degree liaison with Venus in Sagittarius (11:23 p.m.). Keep a safe distance from temperamental souls by becoming a studious hermit.

Prepare for Chinese New Year – Thriving in Year of Earth Pig or Boar

Prepare for Chinese New Year – Thriving in Year of Earth Pig or Boar

As you prepare for the Earth pig or boar year and the next steps on your path, I suggest being mindful of breakthroughs available in these moments of revolutionary change. The current energies indeed support breakthroughs and shifts in outmoded viewpoints. Continue reading to understand how you can benefit most from this juncture.

About Breakthroughs

Since we are continually evolving, breakthroughs are a typical part of our process. Sometimes they are more obvious, other times more subtle. When we stay conscious and awake to what’s unfolding in our lives, we learn the art of discerning our own breakthroughs. Examples: (1) waking up with the answer to a long-standing dilemma (2) engaging in a heart-to-heart conversation with a loved one after weeks of distance or combativeness (3) realizing when approaching self-care that all of a sudden it seems simple to do what’s needed for optimal well-being.

Have you ever noticed feeling uplifted when you became aware that a challenging issue now has a solution? Sometimes the breakthrough is less obvious than this – like when you feel softer towards a person you have had words with, or when you reach an undetermined milestone needed to anchor a new habit and you feel less resistance to doing things the new way. Awareness is key to making the most of breakthroughs. When you realize you are having one, regardless of how small, this can encourage you to take the next appropriate steps. Being mindful of how you are shifting into a more positive direction can boost your frequency too. These responses can help you keep the momentum going.

Thriving in Earth Pig or Boar Year

Chinese New Years each have their own energy. The Earth pig or boar year officially starting February 5 has a focus on abundance and enjoying life. There is definitely a lighter tone in pig years. Playfulness and humor are often associated with such a year. For individuals, the impact depends on their own energy and approach to life along with level and application of spiritual mastery.

In general, to thrive in the pig year requires a certain skill set and mindset.

First, given the emotional roller coaster being experienced in 2019 – with lots of anger surfacing – it is vital to take the high road of spirit and stay in one’s heart. Not always easy to be sure, but important. Words will take on more importance this year – the words used, the tone, the timing, and the delivery. Mindfulness with words, therefore, is paramount. When angry or just upset, calm down before you send that text or see someone. Consider the long-term consequences of your words and actions. Factor in energy cycles, too, because some of those can get you off center. More on working with the year’s energy cycles in my new “Predictions 2019” eBook.

Second, use the abundance focus of this year to get your “house of money” in order. That means becoming more mindful and conscious about finances, income, spending and the priorities. Don’t forget to factor in vital self-care like good nutrition, exercise, meditation, body work and inner work – these things will nourish you, keep you going and help you to maintain a positive flow. Get up close and personal with your money to make it work for you. If you realize you have “money issues,” get help addressing them at a DNA level. Much of the dysfunction in our society regarding money has roots in the DNAThe dysfunction is typically on the following levels: early life conditioning, ancestral patterns, soul level themes from past lives, and the mass consciousness of humanity. Each time you heal a money pattern, because it will also be in the mass consciousness, you help heal humanity at large and so that society can change in big ways.

Third, invite a sense of play and fun into everyday situations – personal and work. This will help you enjoy even mundane things, raise your frequency higher, and bring in more abundance. As you become more abundant, connect with a knowing of how to grow your bank account or business and ways you can share your abundance with others. Sharing can be financial or through other means – like sharing of your time, expertise, and deep listening. Growing your business can involve updating how you do things so your approach fits with new ways people connect and do business. This updating can be crucial to success this year and beyond.

Remember daily the bigger picture of why you are alive and how you can be an integral part of humanity’s awakening. Allow that higher awareness to sit in the forefront of your mind as you go about your day. Trust that in the simple act of doing this, you are helping to transform the world and contributing to your own enlightenment.
