Hi everyone! We have just entered one of the most, if not THE most, important time zones of the year. The sun along with Venus entered Aquarius at last, and to add to the power, the chart’s rising sign is already in Leo!
"As human beings, we have to reach out of our comfort zones."
Let’s find out what is so special this time around.
First of all, the chart of this week is surprisingly watery for this time of the year, with a total of six planets in water! In fact, at the beginning of the week the moon is in philosophical Pisces, conjunct with Neptune in the eighth astrological house—the domain of deep change and personal regeneration. This will bring a deeper understanding of our limitations, the prisons we are in right now, especially if they are emotional.
The moon’s nodes are in the axis of Leo-Aquarius, with the north node very close to the chart’s ascendant. The north node indicates where our tikkun is, where our energy should be implemented; it’s the life lessons and experiences we need to gain right now.
In Leo it’s about acting from the heart, not out of duty. The energy of Leo has a connotation of innocence, of true and genuine feelings. When we think about it, it’s very rare for all of us to live, speak, and interact with others completely genuinely. There is always a hidden motive, even if it’s love. Leo is also about standing for our beliefs, taking responsibility, and learning how to lead.
Very important lessons, indeed!
"Become more aware of limited thoughts and simply leave them aside."
Right now, we also have an opportunity to connect with the great humanitarian calling of the sign of this month, the Aquarius. There is a good reason why we are said to be in the "Age of Aquarius." Remember, this is the water bearer, the sign in charge of spreading knowledge to the universe. This calling should be cultivated, enhanced, and talked about by every one of us. That's our mission this week! As human beings, we have to reach out of our comfort zones.
This week’s chart definitely stretches and E X P A N D S our consciousness out of the beloved comfort zone. Aquarius is about revolution, change, and social movements. It has the power to connect us to a different reality than the one we know.
The deal is, of course, not to preach, but to INSPIRE! We have the ability to choose a different reality, away from small everyday annoyances and reactivity. Mercury is still in grumpy Capricorn, conjunct with Pluto and the black moon! We just need to remember to not be blinded while digging our heels into the ground.
Kabbalistically, this is definitely THE week to tap into "mind over matter" and see how our thoughts can bring about blessings for today, and visions for the future. A very simple exercise this week is to become more aware of our limited thoughts and melancholic Piscean feelings (moon…) and simply leave them aside. So many movies are playing in our minds. And so many are irrelevant, consisting of fears, negative experiences from the past, or anxieties about the future. This week's energy will show us how a simple shift of perspective can make them all disappear, and illuminate a much better plan for the future.
A second exercise I recommend is to meditate on the 72 Name of God, Ayin Shin Lamed, for global transformation, and to bring a big wave of positive change for all of mankind!
Much love to everyone and have a wonderful week!
