Happy magnificent 2015!!
We are in that beautiful moment at the start of the year when everything and anything seems possible. Unlimited new beginnings, business ventures, healthy ambitions and elevating love all are set in our sights. We are ready to leave behind what didn’t serve us in the past year. And there was much. 2014 brought forth many shake ups, hardships and bold shifts into our lives. We had to face much and in turn lessons were presented. We were shown our resilience and strength, our ability to adapt, and most importantly, our capacity to trust was accelerated. This was all in due course to present you with the gateway to more peace, prosperity and abundance into 2015. We cannot be grateful for the gains if we didn’t appreciate the glorious comebacks we were pushed to make. Before you get too far ahead of yourself into the New Year, take the time to honor the past, the teachings that were presented and the messages you followed. For you wouldn’t be here, in this very moment, beaming with pride and faith for the future otherwise!
January truly does set us off in a wonderful tone for the year ahead. Major trends are cultivation, lifting final blocks and a sense of freshness. We continue to move through the Sun in Capricorn, which is a time for focusing on our goals, organization and structure. Continue to comb through the areas of your life you are ready to put the work into. Remember that you must be willing to give what you are asking to receive. In numerological terms, 2015 adds up to 8 and is the year of abundance and infinite prospects! Note however, this will come together when combined with hard work, clarity and patience. So take advantage of this Sun direction to really get laser sharp on what you truly want to manifest and how will go about doing so. No need to get too far ahead of yourself either. By getting clear on the intentional first steps of a goal, you’ll find that move guidance will come once put into motion. Look at your relationship with the Universe as a partnership and the two of you are building something grand together!
The Full Moon will enter Cancer on January 4th at 11:53PM EST. The full moon embodies taking action and elevation to the next level. Perhaps you had set intentions during the last New Moon/Winter Solstice or are just ready to escalate your New Year’s intentions. Whatever it may be, take this time to offer them up to the universe and go easy on yourself in the process. With the moon in the governing sign of Cancer, it is about mothering, nurturing and inner healing. It’s easy to get excited in the realm of new beginnings, however stray from going so big that you overwhelm yourself! Set reasonable expectations and infuse them with a loving heart. Goals created in love over haste are surely to grow brighter and richer.
The Sun will move into Aquarius on January 21st. This is a time to focus on your independence and personal freedom. You will also be moving into a generous and giving mode and you should take advantage to see where you can best serve! Protect yourself first and make sure your needs are met too. It’s a lot harder to provide for others when you haven’t made yourself a priority. Watch out for burn out and schedule lots of time for rest and restoration. The New Moon goes in Aquarius the day prior and again it’s a time to reflect on what you would like to put out into the world and receive back just as fully.
Brace yourself as we slip into Mercury Retrograde also on January 21st until February 11th. This planetary transit occurs alongside the Aquarian Sun which is actually a good position for it to be in. Utilize the power it provides the inner self to see things from a different perspective. Get yourself super prepared before this date hits, back up your computer and don’t overload your schedule. This isn’t the time to make decisions that involve others. This retrograde will open you up to deep inner knowledge and I encourage you to take advantage of the innovative thoughts that may arise. It will allow you to think more outside the box and be less afraid to speak your truth. Keep a steady mind and use good judgment. As always, I invite you to use this as an opportunity to rise above the Mercury Retrograde and let your inner wisdom shine out!
For January’s card reading, I pulled from Sonia Choquette’s Oracle Deck, “The Answer is Simple”. Upon answering for the guidance in your best interest for the month ahead, I received the card “Spread the Light”. This goes perfectly with the Aquarius Sun urging us to be the light to not only help others but realize our inner truth as well. You are powerful and inspirational and it can even heal those around you. One of the most potent healing acts of Spirit is to witness and acknowledge its light in others. Look around and notice who’s in need of being seen. Notice those whose light of Spirit is dim or at risk of going out, and reignite their fire with your recognition. Tell others that you love their Spirit. Don’t be afraid to speak this out loud. To be seen in the light of your soul is a very healing experience and easily spread. Give compliments. Acknowledge when someone is helping you. Write a letter to an elder. Give an extra tip to your server. Smile more. Use people’s names. See the light in someone whom you have the most trouble appreciating. These are all acts of healing in their own rite. This will heal you. You’ve been called to spread the light! Enjoy.
Aries (Mar 21st-Apr 20th) What does 2015 have in store for you? This is a question you constantly seem to keep asking yourself. The last few years have been a lot of fun; filled with new adventures, friendships, and even romance. And you’ve worked hard through the course of it all as productivity is the key to your life force. However where has all of this led you? Is this the lifestyle you want to maintain going forward?

Sagittarius (Nov 22nd-Dec 21st) It’s time to break out! At the end of December, Saturn moved out of it’s staycation in Scorpio and into your sign.

Make this your year to finally turn those deep visions into a reality!
