Blog Post 10 February 2019

Firstly, let me apologise for my absence from blogging lately.  I have been shifting house and cities and am now based just North of Wellington, New Zealand.

February 2019 is the first month we have seen in quite some time where we have no planets in retrograde motion. This means that all of the planets in the cosmos that support and affect our daily lives are in forward motion; encouraging us to act, react and get things done.  This is a great energy to have at the beginning of a new year, as its giving us all the green light to move forward and direct our energies towards the goals and dreams we wish to achieve this year.  Sounds like it should be fairly smooth sailing right?  Well if you’re not feeling it, and you are struggling with the energies right now this is why.

The pressure to move forward and take action from the heavens is our wake-up call for 2019.  2018 was busy, but 2019 is going to take that to a whole new level and we will be tested on how we handle and integrate these energies into our daily lives.  And the biggest challenge to this at this time is the conjunction being formed between Uranus and Mars in Aries.  As the planets move through the skies they create angles with one another and this can bring harmony, opposition, companionship or challenge to the energy they are creating.  Mars is the planet of war; of passion, motivation and forward motion and with this comes arrogance, self-righteousness, and the need to have your own way no matter what the consequences.  Mars doesn’t really understand how to be passive, compassionate or understanding when he is at home in Aries – he just wants to rule, have his way and be unobstructed in his all that he does. He is currently conjunct (amplifying and working alongside with) Uranus who is also in Aries.  Uranus represents sudden and unexpected change, and is the planet of independence and rebellion.  It is his job to keep us on our toes and to keep us thinking outside the box.  

So, when these two mighty planets join forces it can be very difficult for us to see the points of views of others, let along go along with what they may believe or suggest to us.  They are causing you to react and to release, and so for many a lot of anger and disobedience is coming out as we feel we are being treated unfairly, held back or roadblocked in some way.  And so, we fight against it to demand our personal rights and to ensure we get our own way.  

Our greatest purpose on the earth plane is to learn to rise above our emotions, to not allow what we feel to control who we are, what we do and most importantly how we interact and relate to others.  So, pick your battles right now so as  you don’t create damage that you cannot go back and repair later.  Give yourself the space to think before you speak.  Look to where any anger or feelings of being supressed or put down are really coming from, and heal that core issue.  It is always good to release what is toxic within us and what does not serve a positive purpose in our lives, but we cannot do this at the expense of others, or project our pain and anger on to an innocent party.  

This Mars Uranus conjunction is to be with us until mid-week, so if you are struggling with your emotions and the way you are being treated at this time, take a step back and try to just see it from a greater perspective, and let it go.  You are NOT what another person thinks of you, you are what you think of you.  So, make those thoughts as loving, compassionate and caring as you can, because it is only through such love and care that you can accept yourself and your journey and be the best you can possibly be.  Blessings xox
