January is such a busy month in the cosmos. In fact out of all the months this year, January stands out as being one of the most high energy and productive.
January started off with a Super Full Moon in the sign of Cancer. This Super Full Moon was really gearing us up for all that January has in store, and is continuing to guide us as we get settled into the new vibrations of 2018.
Along with the Super Full Moon energy, January also brings us three rare alignments and closes out with a Blue Moon Eclipse.
The first rare alignment happened January 5-7th with the meeting of Jupiter and Mars.
The second rare alignment occurs January 8-10th with the meeting of the Sun, Venus, and Pluto, and the last rare alignment occurs on January 16-17th with a New Moon and a special line up of five planets in the sign of Capricorn.
All of this energy points to January being an action packed month where we can really get things done and fire ahead on all cylinders. It is a month to make positive changes and it is a month to really get your life in order.
Of course, you can only plan your life so much as often the Universe or fate, or whatever you want to call it, has other plans for you. But nonetheless, January is a BIG month and it’s likely you are going to be feeling the changes and energies that this month brings for a long time to come.
One of the most significant alignments of January is the meeting of the Sun, Venus and Pluto. While all of these celestial bodies cross paths from time to time, what makes this so special is the fact that all three of them are aligning together.
Having three of these celestial bodies coming together is extremely rare, and whenever we have rare aspects like this, we always feel the energy much more strongly.
There is so much going on in January that it is hard to really dissect and look at the Sun, Venus and Pluto energy on it’s own. However, this alignment is powerful and will be guiding all of us to look at things in a new way.
In astrology, Pluto is known as the lord of the underworld, but I like to refer to Pluto as the gateway to higher realms of consciousness.
Pluto is death, rebirth and everything in between. I believe Pluto holds the highest form of consciousness and awakening that we can attain on this planet.
The Sun is our life force and represents the material world around us. The Sun is what keeps us all going and when it meets with Pluto, their energies instantly merge to create the potential for higher consciousness and growth.
In fact, the meeting of Pluto and the Sun almost sets the tone for the year ahead and guides us as to what lessons or themes we will all be dealing with and where will be asked to grow and evolve.
Pluto and the Sun always meet once a year, but the addition of Venus in the mix makes this year’s meeting particularly special.
Venus is the planet of love, abundance and creativity. When Venus mixes with the powerful Sun and Pluto energy, it adds a feminine quality which softens the energy and allows us to view things from a more intuitive perspective.
This rare aspect can also be a prediction of the rise of feminine power that is currently in the works.
In most countries around the world, women are exploited or treated as being lesser than men, but this is shifting and there is a lot of cosmic support to help with this.
This alignment is not just about women however. It also touches on how we use power to mistreat not only human beings, but animals and Mother Earth as well.
This energy is going to be planting a seed to help all of us step out of the male patriarchal system and to look at things from a more holistic point of view.
There is so much masculine energy on this earth and while this is beautiful in its own right, it has been out of balance for too long.
Mother Earth needs more feminine energy, she needs more balance and this is exactly what this rare alignment comes to show and teach us all.
Embracing feminine energy is about embracing our intuitive, compassionate side. It is about looking at things from a deeper perspective and finding the deeper meaning, rather than just looking at things in a black and white manner.
Embracing feminine energy is about trusting that inner wisdom and looking within for guidance rather than looking to the outside world.
Feminine energy is so much more than just being “female”. It is an energy that runs through every living thing and the more we can acknowledge, celebrate it and use it, the more in balance we will all feel.
On a global level, honoring the feminine energy inside all of us will help to create peace within and peace on earth.
It will help us to tap into our creative potential and intuition. It will help all of us to rise up in consciousness and to experience the bliss that follows.
January is a big month that holds lots of clues as to what is forming for the years to come. Use this energy to manifest and to start taking action to create a better world for yourself and for everyone around you.
