Note from Kelly:
Sorry for the late post but hopefully the additional podcast/youtube above will make it up to you ; ) If you were not able to join me and Shanta Gabriel for the Winter Solstice Celebration, I’ve created an excerpt when I shared my thoughts on the season and first quarter of the new year. Check it out when you have time, especially since things will start rolling forward as we navigate through the 1/11 Portal that opened with the 11/11 Portal. We are in very new territory, and for some of us, literally a One Year so I invite you to check out this week’s forecast and the additional Solstice support because it all deeply supports your new intentions. More soon!
1/2 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy gives you a strong dose of purpose & direction, but also reminds you that those big dreams require a solid foundation in order to flourish. The wheels that get set in motion this week are creating your future, for better or worse – so pay attention! While this is often about career matters, it is also about your responsibilities in general, the things you have to do that cannot be delegated to others. This is great energy for organizing and planning, creating order, and organizing your Self or your life in some way that fortifies your position. If you don’t “do the work” that you know you are supposed to be doing at the moment, you will only feel worse. So don’t delay anything that can, and probably should, be done sooner versus later. This energy can also make you feel a little lonely or depressed, don’t give in to that. There is a time to be out and about and time to get down to business. And right now, you have probably already put some things off and that is only going to contribute further to your stress levels. Make a list of things to do, prioritize them and start checking them off.
1/4 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This activation gives you access to your Higher Mind and opens the way for new, deeper insights that can guide & direct you at this time. Business as usual will not work, it’s time to open up to the unusual, do something different, look at things from another angle and watch the ah-ha’s start pouring in. Your intuition will be firing on all cylinders, giving you access to unprecedented clarity. While your thinking may lack discipline, your ability to access solutions to any recent (or long-standing) challenges may be off the charts! This energy will not be contained, even though it is generally all mental, you really will have a hard time keeping up with the ideas, thoughts, concepts & intuitions that come to you under this influence so try to take notes that you can refer to later when the grounding will be necessary. Pay attention to the messages that come through/from others as well since you never know how the Universe will show up. This alone is an indication that whatever your consciousness may not have been previously ready to assimilate or process is awakening now to that which is just for you!
1/4 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision & imagination):
This energy activates your ability to dissolve the ego (momentarily) and allow your SoulSelf to shine through! Your Spiritual center, base or practice comes up – how is it supporting you? If you’ve gotten away from your practice, this energy will make it easier to connect to your Spirit, your intuition and the vision for your life’s purpose, at this time. You may find where your contribution is most valued, when you step outside your Self and see how others’ needs are important too. Find a need and fill it … in your own deliciously unique way, as you will be feeling more naturally giving & compassionate under this influence. Your physical energy may also be low as a result of Neptune channeling the Sun’s Source Energy inwardly to re-charge your Spirit. Otherwise, it could be projections of all kinds, yours and other people’s as well. Best to spend some intentional solitude, preferably in Nature if/when/where possible.
1/5 ~ CAPRICORN New Moon/Solar Eclipse: (#2 of 8 eclipses)
We have been through the Cancer Full Moon (12/22), we’ve done some clearing of the past so we can seed the Capricorn New Moon (1/5) and clarify our intentions going into the new year. The Cardinal Energy of Cancer/Capricorn/Libra/Aries is all about our *Fundamentals* and making choices & decisions around them. The messages are subtle yet fierce, clearly pointing to the end of the old as we create space and activate the fertility (compost) of the NEW!! The Cancer Full Moon (12/22) released all that we’ve gathered and nurtured (and been deeply attached to in some way) during 2018. How were you fed/nourished by the energies of 2018? Did you discover new ways of productively channeling your emotions? Capricorn New Moon/Solar Eclipse (1/5) initiates the new reality and gives you a renewed foundation. You can now build on that which is stabilized so it has maximum capacity to support you in all your endeavors.
Eclipses activate larger cycles so reflect on the years: 2009-2011 / 2000-2002 / 1990-1992 and consider the theme that gets repeatedly activated for you. You may just be beginning to be able to fully understand the changes that were activated back in those previous years and how they relate to what is coming up for you now. Most times the energy is too intense in the moment and it is hard to know exactly what or where the energies are pushing you. Eclipse cycles also tend to take about 6-months to clarify the activation, while the entire process of initiation takes 2-3 years to anchor the next 8-10 years, with an extended realm of effects for 18-20 years. What do you want anchored now, where your Home/Sacred Space and Work/Contribution are both concerned?
Often, the Solar Eclipse will be activating your physical body, while the Lunar Eclipse will be activating your emotional body, but together, your spiritual body should go to a completely new level. The lessons this month will center around emotional and material security; home and work; sacred space and sacred work; private and public life; Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine; Archetypal Mother and Father. How can you be more responsible for your feelings (Inner), as well as for what you create in the world (Outer)? How can you connect to a deep sense of belonging (Cancer) and an authentic sense of responsibility for your life and life’s work (Capricorn)?
The Capricorn lesson centers around Inner Authority & Personal Responsibility. What are you known for in your personal and professional life? This is an opportunity to clarify what Sacred, Heart-Centered work is for you and release any blockages to you contributing your unique piece to society. This is an opportunity to release any weakness, fear and let go of the past once and for all. It is time to center and truly own who you are and what you want from this life and then you can use this energy to renew your commitment to living your Truth & Purpose. You will be recognized and rewarded in equal measure to your commitment and dedication. It’s all up to you. You have a clean slate to begin with now and fulfill the potential of your Being here, now and for the next 10-20 years.
