Energy Update January 2024 – Welcome to this space of the magazine. The one you connect with each month. The moon, the sun. Your spiritual being.
This is an invitation for you to set intentions and reflect throughout the month of January at key moments that punctuate the solar and lunar cycles – a form of soul nourishment.
Have courage, dear heart… This is a month for the Sun and the Moon. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee), your journal and an open mind.
Let us get started.
SUN in Capricorn and Aquarius
December 22 – January 19:
Capricorn: the intuitive, the grounded. Thriving in an inhospitable environment. The blend of our spiritual self and the earthly experience.
Capricorn also has the ability to make sense of the complex moving parts. What do you need to make sense of right now? What needs to be defined in your life? It is time to explore this as we have a New Year with new goals and intentions.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which puts an emphasis on what is earned over time, such as achievements, recognitions, or authority.
The shadows of Capricorn is the tendency to be relentlessly driven, lost in the material world and overly serious.
- What makes me feel grounded?
- What needs to make sense in my life right now?
January 20 – February 18:
Aquarius: the questioner, the vision. To think outside of the box and look for change, look for innovation. Also, my sun sign!
Aquarius is also about original ideas and is here to help you make room for unorthodox ideas or opinions. It is a good time to explore as we are at the beginning of a new calendar year.
Aquarius is ruled by two plants, modern astrology: Uranus, which is known as the revolutionary planet. But within more ancient astrology, it was ruled by Saturn, which is about idealistic beliefs and discipline.
The shadows of Aquarius is when holding too much of this idealistic belief, it can lead to being authoritarian, really detached to reality.
- What change needs to be made?
- What new ideas are you going to bring to life in 2024?
