Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes
for the week of Monday, January 30 - Sunday, February 5
Happy Lunar New Year! Welcome the Year of the Yin Fire Rooster, initiated on the Aquarius New Moon on Friday, January 27. You can read my post about the Rooster on the blog.
We move into February on Wednesday, and Aquarius season is fully underway. As the Wheel of the Year turns again, we arrive at Imbolc (Candlemas), a mid-winter holy day. It begins at sunset on Wednesday and is a time for divination, visions and hope. In aligning with Mother Nature we bring ourselves into alignment and at this time of the year, when the ground is still frozen or wet and the wind blows cold, we are encouraged to draw close to the hearth of our hearts. Take time to honor your feelings of vulnerability, acknowledge your fears and the fragility of life, feel your humanity, and be with the mystery. The light is waxing and will return, bringing us all back to life from winter’s sleep. We have much work to do. For now, dream deeply.
