1 – Expand your horizons and allow a childlike sense of wonder to emerge. You have the ability to contribute creatively now and can express in ways that enhance sales, inspire others, and attract magical moments. Enthusiasm and a generous spirit will carry you well through the month. Choose those who are encouraging and if there are emotional conflicts caused by someone dear to you, be loving, but don’t fall into the trap of being overwhelmed by their issues. You can achieve more through reflecting light than being overcome by the dark!
2 – Practical issues call for your attention. Do not gloss over details or you will miss vital clues. Take care of each issue as it arises and be realistic about expenditures. It is a wonderful month for making plans and determining how to proceed. Confront fears and determine where rebuilding is needed, be it in the physical world, relationships, or within yourself. As you reach out for higher guidance, it is available, and you can go beyond a limited view when you choose to see through the eyes of love and possibility. You construct your reality, so enlarge your vision to accommodate greatness!
3 – Enliven surroundings and open to possibilities. Travel, new information, unexpected visitors, and all activity of mind or body now call for attention. Sudden shifts in plans or need for alternative approaches will call for flexibility and adaptability. Reach out and embrace the world of ideas or the actual world – it is a movable feast – and as long as you be realistic about time constraints, you can pack in a great deal to make this shortest month of the year memorable and fun!
4 – Focus on family, health and the values you hold dear. Community involvement and positions within work related projects that require cooperation and responsibility will offer you a chance to shepherd others with abilities that are noteworthy. In all endeavors, reach out lovingly and with compassion. If you need to hand off a project or difficult individual to someone else, avoid doing so in anger. Be honest in a way that offers dignity to everyone involved. Your role as Mother or Father Earth this month will bring goodwill and acknowledgement from others that can be very heartwarming.
5 - In a year that implies activity and change, this month asks you to pause and take stock of yourself and your purpose in life. If you can retreat or spend time with a special interest – do so. Let others know that your need for alone time is not rejection, it’s self-preservation. It’s time to recharge your batteries so you can take on the challenges of the year. Should there be unexpected situations, unravel preconceived ideas and go to your spiritual resource for answers. The focus in February should be internal rather than external, so take your cue from mid-winter and go into hibernation and incubation of sorts.
6 – Your skill as a director is required as there is much to be organized and managed efficiently. Take nothing for granted, and make sure you do your best with all tasks in front of you. Avoidance only leads to harder work later. Powerful people can assist, and you may be singled out for noteworthy praise or achievement. However, if you’ve put something off in the past, it may be time to pay for it now. The key to this month is finding an inner balance that helps your life flow in harmony rather than struggling upstream. Success is quite possible, but it requires consistency. You can do it – the rewards will be worthwhile!
7 – What needs clearing from your life, mind, or closets? It’s time to go through and release what blocks new opportunities from entering. Let go of attitudes that rob your joy and keep you locked in frustration or resentment. Find gratitude for the smallest things in life even if difficulties surround you. As you do, there will be more for which to give thanks. Look for the larger meaning in all events and find your way to Universal Mind at the top of the metaphorical mountain where your view is not hindered by petty concerns. As you clear your own mindset, you are able to reflect a larger view for others, making a contribution to life that is priceless!
8 – This is a powerful month of possibilities. You can begin a new venture, meet new people, or propel your ideas forward in a way that attracts recognition. Self-reliance is important as well as standing up for what you believe. However, do not steamroll over others in your headlong rush to move ahead. Follow the Golden Rule of honoring others as you would have them honor you, and even though you need to make your own decision in the final analysis, give others the dignity of their input. Make decisions through reasoned self-discipline rather than impulsiveness. As you take a little more time to think things through you will see more clearly and avoid what otherwise could be a big mistake.
9 – The combination of elements this month calls upon you to reach out and invite Spirit to be your companion and guide. When you are bound by duality you can be on or off, depending on outer circumstances. When you walk with the angels of your higher nature, everything is possible at all times, and it does not matter what confronts you because the inner light is undiminished. As you awaken to possibilities, you can share those with others as guide or teacher. When you are bound in illusion, you will feel the band of depression that comes with being out of synch with your spirit. In those moments, call out for help. It is closer than you think and waits only for welcome.
