ARE YOU READY FOR SPRING?
This Dark Moon of February is the perfect time to set the stage for our Spring manifestations. Imbolc (February 1st for our purposes here) signaled the start of the slide of Winter into Spring; the seeds we plant during this Dark Moon will benefit from the extraordinary energy of a solar eclipse with both Sun and Moon in Pisces. Oh, and Venus! Venus is in Pisces as well – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!*
*NOTE: If you do not want to get/be pregnant, take all of the appropriate precautions; this energy is much too ripe for new starts and creativity to be careless with how you use it.
Because the energy surrounding this Dark Moon will create a target rich environment, the cards above counsel the importance of the balance between reverence and enthusiasm, passion and resources. Our emotions may be snap-crackle-popping like crazy but this is not the time to allow ourselves to be swept out to sea; we must navigate the waters with courage and care – each of us a Pirate King at the helm of our own ship!
Whatever else you may decide to do with energy, do not forget the gifts of the Dark Moon. Hecate blankets us with her profound darkness, shielding us from our detractors, imparting the wisdom of the ages if only we will listen.
Be happy, safe, and well under Hecate’s Dark Moon.
