The end of 2021 was fast and furious for me. And as I ease my way into 2022 (even though work is keeping me busy in this busy season), I find myself leaning more intentionally into a space of aloneness.
A few hours before Venus stationed retrograde on December 19th, we had a Full Moon. The symbolism behind these two cosmic events is important and will carry us into the new year.
While taking a long drive to hang with my mom over the weekend, I found myself in conversation with God reflecting on my top moments of 2021. I came up with five, and as I began to express my gratitude, God whispered to me, “Now, what five moments do you wish for in 2022?"
2021 ends on a funky note and 2022 begins on a funky note. To get the party started is a pair of eclipses.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty and values, entered the sign of Capricorn the Mountain Goat last week. This will be a lengthy transit that lasts through March of 2022 courtesy of a retrograde period that begins next month.
This month marks a "changing of the guard," so to speak. The lunar nodes – those symbols of fate and destiny – change signs in November, moving from the Gemini/Sagittarius axis to the Taurus/Scorpio axis.
“The Scorpion gives us all permission to go deep, to heal, and to transform without inhibition. Whether I choose to conjure the spirit world as the veil grows thin or engage in a love affair that may seem taboo but feeds my desires, I can do so without shame or judgement under the Scorpio Sun; we should all be able to feed our deepest desires no matter the Zodiac season.”
This week is set to be emotionally charged, folks! Mercury stations direct on Monday, the Aries Full Moon peaks on Wednesday as planets (the Sun, Mercury and Mars) continue to move through Aries’ opposite sign, Libra. Meanwhile, Scorpio season begins on Saturday adding a bit of intensity to the mix; all the more reason to gird your loins.
Libra season begins with Mercury retrograde in the sign of the Scales, and because Libran energy centers connection and relationships, you can expect a few hiccups in these areas over the coming weeks.
