RUNE OF THE MONTH: Hagalaz, "challenges".
Hagalaz, "challenges". A month where obstacles prove to be great teachers. If we do not try to will our way but go with the flow, rerouting will be very valuable. Bumps in the road are realigning us with our highest destiny. As we remember that rejection is God's protection, we are given a chance to expand our consciousness and see beyond what our personal desires would have us want.
Mars continues being retrograde this whole month (until April 14) between 22º34' and 15º10' Virgo.
Mars continues being retrograde this whole month (until April 14) between 22º34' and 15º10' Virgo. A wonderful period to regenerate at a cellular level by becoming aware of the foods we eat and the water we drink, as well as the purity of our actions, thoughts and words. We may be drawn to physical exercise that is inspired by spiritual consciousness, such as yoga, martial arts or pilates. Our pets should also prove very important in our healing process and bring us to a whole new level of understanding of our place in the universe.
Saturn turns retrograde at 29º30' Libra on February 7th (6:03 AM) till June 25th at 22º45' Libra.
Saturn turns retrograde at 29º30' Libra on February 7th (6:03 AM) till June 25th at 22º45' Libra. This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols as follows: "Chanticleer's voice heralds the rising sun with exuberant tones." The magic of our personal tone, the power of pure sound shatters illusions and leads to the co-creation of a new era. The time has now come to manifest the new world into being, a society based on the love and light that dissolve fear and darkness.
Neptune enters Pisces on 02/3 at 10:53 AM till March 2025.
Neptune enters Pisces on 02/3 at 10:53 AM till March 2025. During the next 12 years the veil is dissolving. Music, and particularly subtle sounds connecting us to the harmony of the spheres (crystal bowls, toning…), play an important role in our spiritual evolution. Our psychic abilities are being greatly enhanced. Our artistic abilities are likely to awaken more deeply, bringing much healing both to ourselves and others.

Wednesday 02/1: Venus opposition Mars (3:41 PM)
