February continues the Imbolc time of the year when spring is far away and you just want to sit by a fire and snuggle in a blanket; turn your thoughts toward the Greek Goddess Hestia. Celebrate the warmness and comfort of home and hearth and develop passions for sitting with good companions and drinking warm drinks around a fire. If you don't have a fireplace, light as many candles as you can and feel the warmth.
As the Moon continues in Scorpio you may often feel that you have intense feelings and unfilled desires coursing through your system. On the other hand you may feel that familiar and comfortable habits are where you want to stay. Avoiding heavy emotions and intense confrontations is the theme for February. Yet, if you push limits you may find that you gain greater fulfillment. Make sure you meld kindness with drive and intensity to reach a deeper level of understanding.
Neptune's entry into its home under the water signals a spiritual awakening that moves us to look to all humanity and the suffering around us. Compassion enters your house and idealistic concepts point the way to become in touch with one another. As Neptune transits, the sense of civil equality and common welfare comes back into your life. Compassion and giving becomes very possible as you think about what you have and what you can give.
We find that due to circumstances of the past few months, religious concentrations and relaxing tensions are found all around us. You become more aware of whom people are, what their religious views are, and you find people are more similar than previously thought. February indeed is a time of spiritual awakening.
In conjunction with February as the traditional month of love, you may find yourself growing more in tune with those around you. Perhaps the coworker you did not like is not so unlikeable; the neighbor down the street who was grumpy and difficult is really a very good person. Look around and find those who need a helping hand; a loving attitude. Turn the spirit of February toward becoming more of a world-citizen with compassion for those who are less fortunate.
As Uranus in moves into Aires and retrogrades yet again find yourself standing on the precipice of a world that is no longer isolated. Global communications have made us part of everyone; find compassion and love in your soul and pray that leaders of warring countries find that same love.
As you continue through the second month of 2013, expect discoveries, inventions and unusual experiments to take us to new places in the world. There are so many scientific discoveries on the cusp of being found that we may just find ourselves in an entirely different world by the end of 2013.
