Newsletter - January 2013
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Nauthiz, "limitations".
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Nauthiz, "limitations". The challenges in our lives -whether in our relationships, finances or dreams-, provide opportunities for growth. They reveal places in ourselves that have been stifled and are now in need of light to help us shift to a whole new level of consciousness. Limitations provide us with the chance to see ourselves in all that we always were in our light but forgot when we became seduced by the illusions of density. The more we can embrace ourselves as we are, the greater our chance to change and once again become one with our divine truth. ************************
Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until January 30th, 2013.
Its shadow period remains until April 25, 2013. In January it travels from 7º44' to 6º19' Gemini. These two degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by: "Aroused strikers round a factory" and "an old-fashioned well." The need for us to be mindful of our words, thoughts and feelings continues. As we express our love, our gratitude and our faith in the goodness of all life, we contribute to the further breaking down of the outmoded structures that have enslaved our truth. As we tap into the well of inner knowingness, deep wisdom and power that always was at the core of ourselves, hope springs for the future. ************************

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation started on Dec 28, 2012 with the Full Moon in Cancer.
On the New Moon in Capricorn on 01/11, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out at exactly 11:44 AM (you can put them out up to several hours prior to that time). Once that moment has passed (even if several hours later, or the next morning), staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams… On 1/26, place as many blank sheets as you will have intentions out to be charged by the Full Moon in Cancer at exactly 9:39 PM. Once that moment has passed, put them away in a folder until the next New Moon in Aquarius on Feb 9 at 11:20 PM. ************************
01/3: Mercury Square Uranus (8:29 AM)
Not the best day for concentration. Unexpected changes, sudden new information, strange occurrences and erratic behavior could prove quite disruptive. A great day however for new inventions, breakthroughs in consciousness and freedom from the known.
01/4: Mars Trine Jupiter (4:45 AM)
Our optimism opens many doors leading to great financial, professional and educational expansion. Long-distance travel is favored. We stand our ground positively in a way that inspires respect.
01/6: Mercury Conjunct Pluto (8:43 AM), Mercury Sextile Saturn (3:43 PM)
A day of great seriousness. We feel focused and are able to go to the depth of a topic, discarding what is non-essential. Our knowingness gets structured in a constructive way. A wonderful day for powerful long term plans.
01/7: Mars Square Saturn (11:32 AM)
Physical pain, rejection or trauma could test our willpower and ability to rebound. We shall emerge out of these challenging situations with more strength and trust in our ability for survival. An excellent transit to face the obstacles standing in the way of our ambitions.
01/8: Venus enters Capricorn (8:10 PM till Feb 1 at 6:46 PM)
During the next 3 weeks, our love is deeper, more grounded and stable. Romance may express itself less glamorously, but we can count on its solidity. Great for relationship clarity leading either to commitment or the realization that a bond has served its purpose.
01/9: Venus Sextile Neptune (9:44 PM)
A new love encountered today is likely to carry a touch of enchantment rooted in a deep soul connection. What seems too beautiful to be true, is likely to actually stand the test of time. An existing relationship has the potential of becoming deeper. If only in a relationship with oneself, there will be a sense of magic that creates the inner fusion of the masculine and the feminine within. Money is best created through spiritual consciousness.
01/12: Venus Square Uranus (8:12 PM)
A sudden need for emotional freedom could cause estrangement from the people we love the most. Our social life should be approached with as much self-control as possible so as not to sabotage what is best for us. Today, unreasonable financial investments are ill-advised as unexpected losses could occur.
01/16: Venus Conjunct Pluto (5:28 PM)
In social situations, gracious compromises will prove most empowering, eliciting beautiful cooperation from others. Passion is today's keyword. We need our bodies, hearts, minds and spirits to be aligned. A love relationship may reach a major turning point.
01/17: Venus Sextile Saturn (8:02 AM)
A day when aloneness gives us a sense of our own completion. We understand better our responsibility in creating the love that we wish for. A wonderful day to cement a romantic relationship and structure our social life. Good also for financial solidity.
01/18: Sun Conjunct Mercury (12:55 AM), Mercury enters Aquarius (11:25 PM till Feb 5 at 6:55 AM)
During the next 3 weeks, our ideas could be quite unusual. We are drawn to strange matters and futuristic ideas. We think quantumly and create out of the box. Today, more specifically, is perfect for setting goals that inspire us to greater horizons.
01/19: Sun enters Aquarius (1:51 PM till Feb 18 at 4:01 AM)
During the coming 4 weeks, we may feel drawn to humanitarian pursuits. Intellectual breakthroughs, inventions, and unusual friendships are appealing.
01/22: Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:28 AM), Mercury Trine Jupiter (6:25 PM)
A day to be flexible. Adapting to new, expansive ideas and interesting, unusual information, opens doors we didn't know existed. Great for long distance traveling, learning a language or discovering a different philosophy of life or foreign culture inspiring us to greater spiritual and intellectual horizons.
01/24: Sun Sextile Uranus (8:45 PM)
A day to expect the unexpected! Nothing may quite occur according to plan. The more flexible and open we are, the more interesting everything will prove to be. Nothing today happens without reason, despite situations and people seeming quite erratic. Great for new projects requiring inventiveness, and unusualness.
01/25: Mercury Square Saturn (10:41 AM), Sun Trine Jupiter (7:55 PM)
An interesting day when we may feel somewhat withdrawn, wishing to keep our opinions to ourselves and focused on matters requiring much concentration. In the evening, we may come quite alive, wanting to be the life of the party, exuberant and full of energy and enthusiasm.
01/30: Sun Square Saturn (2:48 PM)
A day when our obligations could feel quite heavy. The more we are able to handle our responsibilities with efficiency and dignity, the more respected we shall be. Wonderful for establishing lists and planning our course of action. We are more structured and focused than usual and should use this somewhat downtime to our advantage. Wishing you all the best. In Loving Light. Michelle Karén, M.A., D.F.Astrol.S.
