As Mercury stations to go direct next week on February 3, this suggests a week of great ideas beginning to surface. There is a wonderful card deck to which I sometimes defer. I pulled a card for ‘idea week’ and this is the card:
Headline: Trust Yourself.
“Much of our educational system is an elaborate game of ‘guess what the teacher is thinking’. Thus, many of us have been taught to think that the best ideas are in someone else’s head. What the world really needs to know is what kind of ideas are in your head. What ideas do you have waiting for expression?’
Creative Whack Pack
So, what are you thinking really? Have you had some great ideas show up that you didn’t mark down, or you simply forgot? This is a year in which to make sure you change that pattern…because lots and lots of inspiring information is coming in this year if you just pay attention to it. I had a teacher years ago (another one) who used to say that ‘when you get an idea and it inspires you, then do something about it, within 48 hours after you have the idea’. Even if you just look up information to find out if it is even viable. By doing this, you are connecting with the universe (yes, I really mean that) and the universe directly plugs into you. We get these insights all the time and half of us ignore them or don’t have time to explore them or really aren’t paying any attention because they are too distracted by distracting things. With Mars traveling through Capricorn, this is exactly the motivational energy you need to push through.
As the next few weeks fly by, be prepared for the mid-February 90-day period AFTER the November 19 eclipse in Scorpio. This is usually a wake-up call for seeing what needs to change and who can help you with those change. Go for it. The continuing challenge between security and freedom of thought and safety and risks is accelerating and creating polarities that may sometimes be difficult to surmount. And they can be difficult if we reframe our polarized thinking and realize – THERE IS A BIG MIDDLE! Nothing is ever either/or and positive changes only happen over small increments of valuable time and thought. New information and insights start popping in here and there as Mercury turns direct on February 3 and then catches up with itself on February 25, moving all of us closer to the end of the incubation that began sometime last fall.
Online Workshops coming:
A week from Friday on Friday February 11 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm Eastern time and all-day Saturday February 12 from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time, I am teaching my unique workshop on Planetary Archetypes for the Midwest School of Astrology. To register for this course, please contact Midwest School of Astrology at https://www.midwestschoolofastrology.com/events.html
This is always a fun course because it has lots of images and shows the similarities between various cultures and how the archetypes of the planets still hold the same meanings. I hope to see you there – it is online – so you don’t need to travel far – just as far as your home office.
