AQUARIUS - I Know / I belong
        Artist: Josephine Wall
Aquarius represents truth, science, altruism, hope, ideals, inspiration, new ideas, associations, friendships/community, inventions, eccentricity, electronic media, computing, Astrology, anything unusual, New Age interests and Humanitarian pursuits.  The sign of the Visionary, Aquarius sees the bigger picture and takes action.  Freedom is important to Aquarius.  Aquarius rules the ankles, lower legs, circulatory system, veins, arteries (esp. hardening of), spasms and cramps.

 Other Energies and influences

Have you been dropping things?  Have things been flying out of cupboards at you?  Have you been tripping over something invisible? Have you been a bit clutzy lately? All are part of the incoming tricky energies of the Fire Monkey. (More on this further down).


Earth Sensitives in particular will have been experiencing physical symptoms in response to all that the Earth mother is going though at the moment.  High pitch ear tones alert us to the earthquakes happening around the world.

Aches and pains have increased especially in the legs and neck areas. 

Energy influxes, rather like solar flares, can affect our eyesight, making it a bit blurry for a few days (if this persists please get it checked out by a professional in case it is something else*). 

Heart palps for some as the body adjusts to this next massive energy adjustment. (Again if these persist, get them checked out*).

*Sometimes the planets help us by flagging up health issues that need attending to.  So please, if symptoms persist or you are worried about anything, get it checked out by a medical professional.

If you have been experiencing headaches, this can indicate a blockage in one of the chakras below the head, worth seeing a healer or doing some energy work yourself to clear this.

Drink plenty of water (if the weather is very cold, drink warm boiled water) this will help you to stay flexible and stop any cramps/aches and pains. 

Stay warm if you are in a cold climate, you may feel chillier than usual as you go through this process of adjustment.

Emotionally you may be feeling hypersensitive; avoid negative people and environments, ensure that you have your Solar Plexus shield charged up and your aura protection in place before you leave home every day (and don’t forget to do this at night too before sleep, to avoid astral interference during dreamtime).

Mind traps – beware of your mind drawing you into a negative spiral, when you are feeling low physically and/or emotionally, the mind can conjure up hundreds of miserable/negative scenarios.  Don’t let it.  Distract your mind by watching a movie that makes you feel good, listening to some upbeat music, do some cleaning or gardening or go for a walk.

Thankfully February’s energy is lot easier and kinder than January’s was.  Enjoy the ease of this month and use it to get yourself organized, as March is going to be very busy!

Chinese New Year
A few months before the change in Chinese New Year, I always attune to the incoming animal for guidance and to determine the type of energy we will be dealing with.  The past two years with Wood Horse and Wood Sheep, the energy was benign and gentle, yet this year every time I tried to attune to Monkey, I felt blocked as if it wouldn’t let me read it.  I sensed some mischievous energy with the potential for mayhem.  I tried several times and in the end decided I was better off leaving Monkey alone.  It was interesting then how I received confirmation about my impressions as I started to research Year of the Monkey in more depth.


Year of the Fire Monkey
Yang – Metal – Red – Fire - Monkey

What we can expect for the Fire Monkey year (Feb 2015-Feb 2016):

Moving Forward Energy – Change - Deception – Creativity – Opportunities - Solutions

The past couple of years were slow for some and annoying for others, and there seemed to be a lot of anger energy that was coming up for healing.  For many of us, the past couple of years were incredibly tiring and we often felt like we were wading through treacle or pushing a heavy load uphill.  Depression featured for many also. 

That is now changing.  Monkey energy is far more upbeat.  Monkey’s fire energy brings warmth, joy and happiness.  Monkey pushes us to be gutsy and go for it.  You must be brave and not let your fears derail you this year.  Success is possible for many this year if you stay strong and have the guts to go for what you want.  It is a good year for new businesses, as long as you have checked the small print and done your research.  We can all move forward in big steps/leaps this year and really reach for the sky.  It’s a year for being creative, inventive, innovative and bold.

According to some Feng Shui experts, this is the year for succeeding on your own.  Relying on others for your success could be disastrous, so be careful about whom you get involved with regarding business matters. 

The monkey loves to chat, so it could be a great year for socializing, debating and relating.  However, sensitive types may find some people a bit too full-on, also anger energy still abounds, so try not to waste your energy in getting wound-up by what really isn’t that important.  Save it for manifesting your own success and don’t let anything anyone says put you off.

It could be a passionate year, one thing is for certain, it won’t be boring and will be quite the rollercoaster! 

Moving Forward Energy
The past two years were about preparing and laying down plans for our dreams, the Fire Monkey year is all about actualising them.  So all those dreams you keep talking about now have to be manifested.  This requires grounded step-by-step progress that is always moving forward (whatever curveballs may come up).  At last the brakes are off and we can all move forward with our projects, dreams and goals.  We need to do our homework though, and check things out thoroughly to ensure that the wool is not pulled over our eyes.

There is unpredictable energy this year.  It could be a year when the sh*t hits the fan.  Changes you have been avoiding will now happen.  The changes you were thinking about will now actualize.  If you’ve had your head in the sand prepare to get your arse well and truly kicked.  In fact we could all be in for some wake up calls.
On a more positive note it could be the year of fortune for you.  Everything could change as quickly as the flipping of a coin.  Every change you make now will reap benefits for you, so ride those changes knowing that they are leading you to so much better.
Monkey isn’t afraid to change when change is needed, even if that change has come via a curveball.  Monkey will look at what has been presented in great detail, then work out what s/he needs to do and adapts/changes.  That is why Monkey is so successful.  Monkey is in fact a great ally, especially in business. You can apply Monkey’s technique for any of life’s problems that come up.


You may need a lot of smudge this year!

Beware of being conned this year.  There could be some smooth-talking folks who want you to get involved in something - trust your gut – do not take them at face value, do not believe everything they say or write, check them out in detail. 
This is especially true for those in the mind-body-spirit fields, there will be those who talk the talk very convincingly (and even seductively at times) – don’t be seduced.  There are those who seem super confident about themselves and what they are saying/selling – don’t fall for it they could be bluffing and you could lose out.  You may need to smudge a lot too this year to clear these types of energies.

A very encouraging year for starting something new, building something new or building on something you have started, for sharing your creativity with the world, being innovative and getting out there with it.  You will be able to move ahead this year at last.  Some may realise that they have had enough of their creativity being stifled and choose to leave the jobs that they are in.  Boldness leads to success.  Take charge of your creativity and enjoy it.  However, do check everything out and research – research – research before launching.

Health issues
Avoid sleeping in the North East if you can this year, as that is where the 5 Star Yellow affliction is (the illness star).  This is also applicable to homes that face North East.  Don’t get so busy that you get too distracted, as that is when accidents happen – this star is also known as the ‘bone breaker’.  Other areas of health to keep an eye on and be mindful of are; illnesses (which can become serious) – don’t ignore symptoms, get them checked out immediately.  Back and spinal injuries – be careful lifting and moving things. Heart problems – look after your beautiful heart.  This is the year for really sorting your health out, start those classes, get to the gym, do more walking, see those therapists, dance, cycle, swim.  If you want to enjoy your success then you need to be well enough to enjoy it.  Start right now.

Monkeys never miss an opportunity especially if it will help them to achieve their goals.  They know how to adapt when changes and curveballs present, and that is a great skill, especially in business.  Adaptability is key this year.  When opportunities present, don’t wait, go for it.  However, check the small print and check the people out thoroughly before signing anything.

The Monkey is a problem solver and brings energy to help you find solutions to your problems.  Focus 80% on the solution and only 20% on the problem.  Monkey will help you to find the clarity you need and to stay grounded so that you can make the right decisions. 
Monkey brings hope – and we could all do with a bit of that! Monkey looks objectively at a problem, to all the components of it, and works out how to sort it out.  Monkey takes time doing this and we must do the same.  When presented with a problem, get over the fear and panic as soon as possible (taking some Essences such as our ‘Fear Buster’ Essence can help with that, you can find it here:
Then apply your logical mind to working out all the different aspects of it, break it down, and then see what can be done. 
SOULutions – this is also a year for really getting in touch with your own Soul.  How do you express your Soul in the world?  How often do you feed your Soul with what it most needs? When you develop a stronger relationship with your Soul and allow your Soul to express itself, then you can trust your intuition and be Soul guided to solutions – soulutions.

Abundance for Women

The Wealth Water Star is highlighted for women this year.  The number 8 (a popular number for abundance in Feng Shui) is a lucky number this year and many good opportunities will present for women (just be careful about who you go into business with/collaborate with, don’t forget that there is trickery around, you will need to double and triple check everything).  Business-wise things will go well for women this year, new opportunities, increases in salary and abundance in all forms.  Family businesses will fare well also. 

Not a good year to get married, far better to wait until after Feb next year.

The Number 8

To make the most of the abundance blessings available this year, activate the eight in your life in as many ways as possible.  Make a cushion cover in purple with the number 8 appliqued on it (triple 8 would be even better) and place in the wealth area of your house/rooms.  Wearing jewellery in the shape of an eight – or triple eight – such as a necklace.  This is especially beneficial to women working in sales.  And as Monkey is the metal element, this would be perfect. 
BTW – each of our ‘Fire MONKEY’ spray mists has an 8 charm attached to it which you can use by attaching it to your wallet/purse or putting it on a chain to wear.

The key is to keep moving forward whatever happens, don’t allow yourself to become paralysed by what is happening.  It is also a solution-oriented year so you will find solutions to any problems or obstacles that may come up.  Others can help you with these solutions also, however, it is better to trust your own intuition in these matters and then once you have an idea of what you want to do, seek out those who can help you. 

Chinese Astrology

To find out how your animal sign will be affected, the lovely Bette Steflik has some good info:

NEW MOON in Aquarius

This New Moon is the moon of making wishes and for wishes coming true.  It is about group endeavours and fun with other people.  It is about deepening our connection with others (and re-connecting with those we may have been neglecting).  What is your capacity for happiness?  This Aquarian New Moon invites you to open yourself up to receive more happiness.  Recent events may have closed you down more than you realised, time to give yourself permission to be happy so that the Universe can bring you many reasons to be happy.  You are allowed to be happy you know!

This New Moon invites us to come out of hiding and be more sociable, perhaps it’s time to join a new group or start a new class where you can meet new people.  Aquarius is the sign of hope and helps us to reconnect with our dreams and aspirations.  The Age of Aquarius is about operating at a higher vibration and living in a higher vibration – not easy, with all that is going on in our world at the moment.  This Aquarius New Moon is a wonderful opportunity to believe in our dreams, to think BIG! be bold, be audacious, Aquarius knows that by tapping into the higher vibrations anything is possible.

So do all you can to keep your vibration high.  Create a new vision board for your big audacious dreams and goals.  Take Essences to keep you internally aligned and to keep your cells vibrating in a higher frequency
(If you want any help with choosing the right ones for you, just let me know and I will dowse for you, or see what jumps out at you from our Essences
Play nice music, buy some fresh flowers, wear some bright clothes, burn some uplifting incense or aromatherapy oils, sing, smile and indulge your inner hippy.

Aquarians are individuals; they have their own way of looking at the world and their own way of expressing themselves in the world including the way they dress.  This New Moon encourages us to drop all that has been weighing us down, to discard outdated images of ourselves and step into who we really are.  Have you been dressing to please someone else or because you thought you had to conform to be accepted?  This is exactly the type of thing that needs to be dropped right now.  You are unique; you have your own style that has been trying to get out for some time now.  My American friends have a great expression “flying your own freak flag”, and Aquarians certainly have no problem in doing that, they are totally unafraid of being themselves and don’t care what other people think.  We have all been given permission to be ourselves fully! So come out of the closet (figuratively and literally and clear that closest out) and make space for what is new, fabulous and totally your style.

Unhook yourself from unnecessary obligations and people; especially those that make your energy drop.  Only do and be with those that raise your energies. 

You are the butterfly emerging now in full glorious colour, it’s time for you to start living your life the way you want and with who you want.  Life is so very precious and so short, we are blessed to have the freedom to do this and I am so very grateful.  Make each day matter; start now to make the changes that you know must be made. 

Live bolder, brighter and happier!
