Energies for January, February and March 2017
Welcome to 2017 everyone! I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the cards I pulled for the first part of 2017. With the exception of a bit of a rocky start, the messages are positive, and truthfully I was expecting darker energies to come forth!
Although the Eight of Swords energy signifies some sort of challenge rolling in with the New Year, I consider this a minor, but significant, situation for most of you. Due to the warmth and optimism of the approaching months, January is about clearing out a lingering situation that is draining you. The issue at hand is PERSONAL FREEDOM. What does that mean to you? Sometimes this card indicates that circumstances in your life are working against you. You may be asking, “How did I get here?” The answer to that question is valuable, but please don’t get stuck there. Sometimes asking “Why or why me?” is just an energetic vortex that will drag you down. Better to ask where you want to go, focus your energy on that and start moving. Alternately, circumstances in your life may be fine, but you feel stagnant. In that case, the jailer is your own self. Fear of change or the unknown is usually the culprit. Whether it is outside circumstances or internalized restriction, the message is the same: You are never trapped. There is always choice, prayer or even just a change in perspective. You can tell a different story. Tell it how you want it to be, not how it is. The good news is no one is going to come riding in to save you…but you can save or free yourself. That is true power and you have it at your disposal anytime.
This push for freedom is helped by a rare astrological occurrence on January 8, when all planets move direct. This is like a big push from the universe to MOVE forward. Don’t stay in what doesn’t bring you joy. Card: 8 of swords
Affirmation: I am free.
February should bring some wonderful times for all of us. It will be a lucky month. Most of us spend too much time in our heads and February is the month to get into our bodies and find joy and meaning through our 5 senses. Artists (or the artist in us) will be especially blessed because the Empress has come to town. Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is her ruler. Surround yourself with things that look, sound and smell wonderful to you. Let your freak flag fly and put some adventure into your style. Eat your favorite food (without guilt) and get some lovin’. Now is the time you will be rewarded in profound ways for bringing joy and pleasure into your life. Most of are taught that we grow through challenges, but the opposite is also true. Beauty and happiness heal and make us more flexible and available. The Empress says that your worth as a human is not connected to your ability to produce or be a care-giver. Set yourself free. Give care because you want to, not because you feel like it validates your existence or is a part of your identity. If you have a sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, make it extra special. If you are a freewheelin’ single on Valentine’s Day make it extra special. Love and Beauty all month long! card: The Empress
Affirmation: Joy and comfort are my birthright.
A great way to chase away the late winter blahs is to start something new! The energy of the Sun shines light in even the darkest hearts. The warmth of this card burns away depression and stagnation. It brings clarity and through that a sense of liberation. Knowing what we want and where we are going gives a snug sense of safety and freedom. If there is something you have been working on and feel stymied, the visionary energy of this card will help you move in the right direction. The Sun will melt away any artist blocks and/or obstacles to movement. It is a great card for all relationships, helping facilitate communication and a sense of hopefulness. It also is the ultimate truth card, illuminating hidden elements in relationships. This information may be positive or negative, but the warmth of the energy will heal wounds quickly. Card: The Sun
Affirmation: I am safe and free.
