Time to wake up and smell the coffee….to emerge from your psychological cocoon, from retreat, from mental hibernation, to stop doomscrolling and start engaging your curiosity.
On February 1st, the Sun, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pallas and Chariklo are all in Air sign Aquarius-the biggest gathering in the sign of the Futurist since February 1962 to be joined by the Aquarius New Moon a on February 11th.
The incoming Frequency is tangibly different from the stone cold, heavy, earthy concrete energy of Capricorn we were all held in place by in 2020.Nor is it warm, fuzzy soft Piscean New Age energy but edgy, crystalline, blindingly clear and diamond sharp.
For much more, get “Your Survive and Thrive Guide to 2021” and sign up to my February 2021 5D Report:” The Aquarian Agenda”.
This influx of Aquarian frequency is downloading the 5th Ray of concrete knowledge, science and technology which rules electricity – the energy that powers your devices and your subtle magnetic field – and will shift our focus to humanitarian issues, technological advancements and breakthroughs of all kinds. We are already seeing medical outcomes (whatever your view on them) at an unprecedented rate based on collective collaboration.
Synchronicitously, Mercury turned retrograde on Saturday January 30 at 26 Aquarius conjunct Pallas-intelligence as strategy- and will turn direct at 11 Aquarius on February 21st.Don’t fall back into old thinking about Mercury retrograde meaning glitches and roadblocks but frame it as a wake up call to install a new psychic infrastructure. This new frequency is exactly the voltage and bandwidth those of us who have spent years as way showers, empaths and edge dwellers need to shift from being a 4D change agents to becoming 21st Century Evolutionaries – practical visionaries bringing through the manifesting powers of Hierophant Saturn in Aquarius + Magician Uranus in Taurus. A potent Fusion of Fixed Air and Fixed Earth is going to teach us how to align radically new insights with Eternal Laws and practices.
This week, start by asking:
- How free is my thinking really?
- To what extent am I choosing to live/work/operate inside comforting echo chambers?
- How much mI allowing my thinking to be shaped/distorted by mainstream media manipulation?
- Do I regularly seek out a diverse range of scientific, psychological, philosophical, ecological thinking?
- Am I still stuck in New Age received truths and beliefs about what is “spiritual” and what is not?
- If I understood that my mind is not a camera but a projector, what could I create?
- How might I re-think and update my communication platforms?
The Chandra Symbol for Venus AQUARIUS 1:
A two-headed calf.
“Taking a good look at things with an keen eye brings you right into the middle of the dilemma of polarities. As you stand there faced with the different sides, you are impartial; neither side pulls you more sharply than the other. Immense opportunity. Huge challenge. You have vital potential for brilliant synthesis, but a subtle temptation to think too long. A schooling in alchemy in every moment—are you ready to find what is ready to emerge or are you simply thinking about it? Progressive evolution draws you through all your mistakes into all that can be.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Starting now, combine your Fire sign energy with the Air of the Aquarian planets and send up some sparks. This rare gathering of planets in Aquarius is activating your 1tth House of people and connections. This covers everything from groups, alliances, friendships, networks along with your goals and priorities. Start by looking at the big picture of your people landscape and asking of each person or group:” Do they light me up or drain me?” Notice your feelings as you do this audit and let them settle. Then ask:” What am I bringing to the party? Am I giving or taking?” If you are staying out of the need to belong or to fit in, think again.
Escaping from your echo chambers.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
This is your time to liberate yourself from old inner and outer rules, especially in your career, service and public life. With Awakener Uranus in Taurus and 8 Aquarian planets at the very pinnacle of your chart, start creating some innovative new strategies to get your message-whatever it is-out there. Look at all your current platforms and ask:” What does this say about what’s important to me?” Find some different models that resonate with you and change things up. The key is to experiment and have fun, to surprise yourself with new ideas to add value to others. This applies whether or not you have a business or a practice.
Finding your authentic voice.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Your personal planet Mercury is travelling back over the huge stellium of planets in Aquarius until February 21st– time to wake up and smell the coffee. Aquarius is an air sign compatible with yours so you are literally in your element now. Forget all the old mediaeval ideas about Mercury retrograde and change your thinking. Your 9th House of broadening your horizons either through physical travel-unlikely-or by expanding your mind is lit up like a Christmas tree. What you need now is a huge dose of curiosity about anything and everything. Get out of the comfort zone of your usual social media echo chambers or information sources and follow your interests and ideas into new mental territory. What are your opinions about current science or ecology or medicine or politics actually based on? Are they hand me down assumptions or the result of your own research?
Challenging your world view.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
The rare gathering of planets in Aquarius are lighting up your 8th House of life’s big questions. These are often the ones we seek to avoid or label taboo in polite company -such as sex, money and issues of life and death. Circumstances will focus your attention on what truly matters to you, as opposed to what you pay lip service to. It’s a great opportunity to measure the congruence gap between what you say and what you do. Dig deep, do some excavating and inner archaeology to find the roots of current problems, especially where your finances and resources are concerned. Then, find someone to advise you with more experience than you have and who you trust. In this case, two heads are better than one.
Ignore the symptoms, look for the cause.
Leo Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
As 8 planets and points cluster in your opposite sign of Aquarius, relationships of all kinds are on your mind. Whether it’s with close partners, work colleagues, friends or professional contracting, the old dynamics are shifting around you and probably not bringing you the results you’d hoped for. Aquarius is an Air sign- all about collaboration, cooperation, collective working-the literal opposite of your natural “individualist and proud of it” Leo style. Look at your people landscape and notice where negotiating, creating rapport and listening would achieve more than seeing others simply as an audience or a team of supporters.
Listen more than you talk.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Like Gemini, Mercury the Messenger is your personal planet, so whenever he changes direction, you know it’s time to sit up and take notice. The Trickster will travel back over 8 planets and points in Aquarius until February 21st, starting with Pallas, the archetype of strategic thinking. This is activating your 6th House of everyday habits, routines, work, service and health. Frame it a rare opportunity to think creatively about why you do the things you do, from getting up a certain time, to the clothes you wear to what you always eat…….you fill in the rest. That restless feeling is probably boredom so shake things up a little and get curious about what you could do differently and get different results.
Streamlining your routines.
Libra Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Are you feeling a strong breath of welcome fresh air yet? If not, you soon will be as 8 planets and points gather in compatible Air sign Aquarius. Your 5th House is ready for a makeover, an update and some new input. For you, it’s going to be about actively finding ways to enjoy life to the full, to make it your mission to discover what actually makes you happy-as opposed to what is supposed to make you happy-and then get more of it into everyday life. As Mercury travels back over the future focused Aquarian, starting with Pallas, engage in some strategic thinking. What are your big goals- the ones with your name on them -and where will you start?
Smelling both the roses and the coffee.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
What’s brewing at home? That’s the big question and if it isn’t on your radar yet, it soon will be. A rare gathering of 8 planets and points in Aquarius, your deep 4th House of belonging, is signalling the start of a whole new chapter. This could play out in so many ways, depending on your circumstances but clues to look for are partners behaving out of character, signs that repairs or wholescale renovation is needed where you live, a family member leaving home or the birth of a new baby in your extended tribe. You might have outgrown your space or need to downsize. As Venus enters Aquarius from Monday, think long and hard about your own preferences and decide what is going to be negotiable or non-negotiable in the months ahead. Use the 3 weeks until February 21st when Mercury turns forward to plan, to strategise and to develop a long term blueprint but don’t sign any contracts.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
All the action throughout February is in in your angle of communication so expect to be buzzing. With an incredible 8 planets and points in future oriented Aquarius starting this week, your mind will be on fire, even for you as a Sagittarian who loves nothing more than making big plans and dreaming up amazing adventures. Mercury is travelling back over all these planets until February 21st, the perfect bandwidth to install new approaches, so don’t waste a moment. Start thinking big, not only out of the box but realising that the box doesn’t actually exist. Make sure you capture, gather, collect and store all those lightbulb moments, brilliant insights and epiphanies as they are going to be the fuel for changes for years to come.
Get together with people whose thinking you value and start up an ideas factory.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Now that Venus is moving out of Capricorn, the only planet left in your own sign is Pluto. The change in energy will be palpable, although it might take a little getting used to. Take your time to look around you and really take stock of how the landscape has changed beyond recognition since late 2017 when your personal planet Saturn joined Pluto to make permanent and non-negotiable changes in your life. The gift in this frequency shift lies in Aquarius, your 2nd House of money and resources, where a rare cluster of 8 planets is delivering new opportunities to uplevel your personal security. Get creative with ways you can create fresh income streams, either as a side hustle or in addition to what you do now. Are you under valuing what you have to offer or undercharging ad underearning?
Knowing your worth and accepting nothing less.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
This week-and month and year-has your name on it, so don’t let it slip by. From February 1st-18th, there are no fewer than 8 planets and points in Aquarius giving you the sort of support and impetus you’ve dreamt of but never imagined could be possible. The entire world is now officially Aquarian and people are going to be turning to you for ideas, wisdom and leadership in navigating this quirky future oriented frequency. Mercury the data archetype is going to activate all these planets one by one between now and February 18th, giving you clear and undeniable insights into what you need to change so you are finally living life on your own terms.
Ask yourself: “If I were to consistently put my own highest interests first, what would I do differently right Now?”
Pisces Weekly Forecast: January 31-February 7, 2021
Of all the signs, you as a Piscean are about to embark on a magical mystery tour. Not literally but in your inner world. The rare cluster of no fewer than 8 planets in Aquarius is waking up your deep 12th House, where your unconscious lives quietly out of your everyday awareness, directing your life from behind the scenes. Think of this part of your psyche as the engine room of your chart where you’ve just been invited on a guided tour. This is the place of imagination, dreams, the past, your family karma and ,above all, the boundary between this world and the world behind the world. If ever there was a time to journal your dreams, to explore paths to your higher self, this is it.
Your boundaries can be very porous so remember to stay grounded and rely on your inner Yes or No for guidance.
