So, this is the month we've all been waiting for, with that key date in particular: 12–21–12. A little later on, I'll be explaining the astrology of that date and what it means for us — not just globally, but also as individuals. But let's begin at the beginning.
Our new year begins with a cluster of planets in Capricorn setting a serious and rather intense mood for 2013. The best use of these energies would be to give some serious thought to the point we have reached on our individual and collective journeys.
January 2013 (25/7): You begin the year with the vibration of blending within yourself, finding the center point between your spirit and physical and staying there. This requires you to honor both the left and right brain in union. Both are part of the whole and are meant to work together.
Every so often the planets line up in such a way as to bring forth opportunities for change, and February is one such month. Over the next few weeks and especially toward the end of the month, we will all be presented with the chance to heal a wound of some sort.
February 2013 (26/8): This month is full of easy-flowing external energies for you to experience. Take responsibility for your own power and authority while you learn that the flow of giving and receiving is the basis of any unification.
Peace of mind arrives when no matter what challenges or turmoil we may be faced with, we trust that all will be well and that we will be provided for. Faith in a higher power to take care of us when we are feeling fragile will grant us this state of inner peace.
This month starts with Mercury's retrogration at 17°26´ Pisces until it turns direct on March 17 at 1:41am at 5°40´ Pisces. Its shadow period — the time it takes for Mercury to return to the exact degree it started its retrogration on — continues until April 6. Past and present could overlap.
