Happy New Beginnings as the wheel turns and we enter a new energy of love. January creates the opportunity to set the intentions for our own personal new beginning. I encourage you to enter the silence and acknowledge the journey of this last year. Pause, breathe, prepare for what is unfolding for yourself, your tribe and our global community.
Having just returned from Maui where I disconnected from the fast world for several weeks in December to do my own deep dive in preparation for 2022. I immersed completely into the sacred blue day after day to listen to the song the whales were singing. Having just returned to the red stone elders of Sedona, I feel a renewed sense of hope and the awareness that no matter how chaotic it appears to be around us, from the chaos there is an energy of power, supported by love and focused intentions.
Self-nurturing of the mind, body and soul will be key to creating a more harmonious experience in this coming year. A powerful lesson I have learned from the natural world while spending time in Maui is…. “DO NOT let a busy life take away your sense of inner peace. Slow down, bring more balance into your life and allow yourself to receive. This is not a year to rush but it is a year to move forward, grounded in your faith and with an open heart.
I wanted to share in more detail the energy that 2022 will gift us with and the magick of this “6” year. Please click here.
New Moon, January 2, first new moon of 2022 in Capricorn
Capricorn governs many attributes some of which include responsibility, hard work, and ambition. On another level, Capricorn rules structures or “the way something is built, arranged, or organized.” We find structure in everything in our lives…from our home and work lives, to how our relationships operate, to how our society and governments are set up. Structures are an integral part to being human and the structures that we have once lived in, both as a collective and personally, are undergoing massive change. With that said, this particular new moon energy will amplify what systems and structures are no longer in alignment with who we are and where we are on our life’s journey. Along with this amplification comes an invitation to change whatever system no longer seems to be working in our lives, especially if this particular system or structure is taking us away from what truly matters to us or is dampening our joy. The most prominent alignment of this new moon is a trine to Uranus. A trine in astrology is the most harmonious aspect and Uranus is the planet of rebellion, revolution, progress, vision, and the future. In other words, this new moon is supporting us in radically shifting our perspectives so we can see and feel the people, jobs, things that are no longer in alignment with who we are now and where we are headed. With this change in view, we can start to see the steps we need to take in order to change our lives for the better. This new moon will be a super new Moon, meaning the Moon will be close to Earth in her orbit. When the Moon is close to Earth, the Moon’s gravitational pull on the ocean tide is increased and since human bodies are largely made of water, the Moon’s pull on us is also amplified. This is a powerful new moon to really let go of anything that is crumbling in our lives because when we truly release the old, we have so much more space for the new. This year more than any other we will feel the cosmic heart opening as the 33 petals are activated on another level. The more we look at life through the lens of the heart, the more clarity will come as to where we need to be and how we need to express ourselves and our light out into the world. For those who are members of our online subscription series I have posted a New Moon ritual to amplify the energy of the first new moon of 2022. Please click here
Venus Cazimi on January 8, 2022 at 4:47pm PST
Cazimi is a term that means “in the heart of the sun.” In astrology, Cazimi is when a planet will meet with the Sun in a very close alignment during its retrograde journey, amplifying the planet’s energy. During this time, Venus is between the Sun and the Earth exactly. Venus will be closest to the Earth in her orbit which signals the time when Venus begins her shift from evening star to morning star. This is a great time to meditate, set intentions, create vision boards, or do ceremony around what you would like to experience in your life in the realm of love and relationships (with self or others), personal values, creativity, pleasure, and abundance. By creating space to connect in with your heart and the energy of the Goddess during this time can lead to profound communication between self and the divine feminine. The awakening to the teachings of the Path of the Rose and the divine feminine expressed through the Great Mother Goddess will be key this year.
January 14th The first Mercury retrograde begins for 2022
Mercury will be going retrograde in Aquarius on January 14th until February 3rd. At the time of this Mercury retrograde, Mercury will be conjunct Saturn and square Uranus. (Uranus) represents the future, new ideas, new beliefs, cutting age and (Saturn) is the traditional, old paradigms of ego, within our personal lives as well as in society. Mercury going retrograde is a great time to see how this push and pull of the old and new has been internalized and how the old and new (beliefs, ideas, structures/ways of being) are going to war within. Mercury is a wonderful teacher in examining this dichotomy of old and new because Mercury rules paradox…he governs the idea of both/and instead of either/or. This Mercury retrograde asks what ways can we honor the past and have the lessons and wisdom walk alongside us as we create the new future? Mercury reminds us that it doesn’t always have to be a battle and no matter what side you resonate with more (tradition/past or future/progress), if both sides puts down their weapons to hear what the other side has to say, we can build a future that honors the past and reveres the future. Mercury shows us ways in which tradition and the future can go hand and hand instead of fist to fist. We are striving for the creation of a kinder, gentler reality, holding a vision of love. Use this time while Mercury is retrograde to find ways of expressing unity. Let go of judgment as this planet always influences communication. I have witnessed many families torn apart, friendships severed because of differing beliefs on vaccine -vs- non vaccine and a huge division from a differing political viewpoint. Judgment comes from being in the head. Anger, aggression and separation come from fear. Utilize this Mercury retrograde to navigate from the heart to maintain your center. Listen without an emotional reaction. If you want to be heard, you must truly listen to what another has to say.
Throughout 2022, Mercury will begin his retrograde journeys in air signs and when he goes direct he will be in earth signs. This shows that Mercury, the planet of foundational wisdom, is reminding us to bring our minds (air) and our bodies (earth) into alignment this year. Again the celestial dance, is reminding us about self-nurturing and navigating through the heart. Listening to our body. If we really listen to what our bodies have to say we can receive tremendous healing and great insight throughout the year on how our minds and bodies can work together instead of against each other.
January 17, 2022 – Full moon in Cancer.
Cancer is the sign that is ruled by the Moon making the first full Moon of 2022 at home in her own sign. With that, one of the questions this full Moon is asking us is…. Do we feel at home within? If not, what do we need to do in order to be more at home within? The most prominent aspect this full Moon is making is a sextile Ceres. A sextile in astrology is a harmonious aspect, which represents a potential gift that we can receive if we consciously do the work of integrating these planetary energies. Ceres is the Great Mother asteroid, and the Moon is also seen as the Mother. The Great Mother Goddess energies are on the rise in 2022. In fact, Ceres is prominent in a lot of the astrology throughout 2022 and her appearance invites us to connect to our own divine feminine and nurturing energies this year is paramount. Much of this divine feminine influence of 2022 – The Year of the White Rose is explained in greater detail. Click Here. A big question that Ceres asks as well, is how can we mother and nurture ourselves more deeply so that when we give back to our communities and most cherished relationships, we are giving from a place of abundance rather than depletion? Another major theme of this year is about prioritizing self-care/nurturance and deepening our self-love while releasing any stigma around the idea that it is selfish to do so. An act that not only brings deep healing to the self and those around you, but to the very foundation on which we are recreating and building a new reality. I will be posting a Full Moon ritual and guided audio meditation to support the first full moon of 2022.
January 18th – Uranus the Planet of Revolution will station direct under the influence of the Full Moon.
Uranus went retrograde on August 19, 2021 and has been retrograde for almost 5 months. Uranus is the planet of rebellion and revolution. During his retrograde period, we are invited to really get to know who we truly are in our most authentic form. When Uranus goes direct, we are invited to share our truest selves that we’ve unearthed over the last 5 months with others. The most significant aspect Uranus is making the moment he goes direct is a trine to Venus. Venus is the planet of relationships, beauty, harmony, and balance. A trine is a harmonious flow between planetary energies. Additionally, Venus is the planet of the personal heart which carries the 33 petal rose and Uranus is the planet of the higher mind. A link is created during this time between your heart and the universe, so be sure to pay attention to anything that sparks your passion at this time, it could lead to divine and sudden inspirations, an uptick in creativity and self-expression. Uranus likes to shake things up, so as it begins its direct motion, it’s best to expect the unexpected around this time. Let go of any exceptions and embrace the experience. Adaptability and flexibility is the name of the game.
Offerings this month include the White Rose Reading utilizing Floromancy, the language of flowers. Since ancient times, flowers have been associated with Magickal and Divine properties, Their appearance and messages they bring make them the perfect companions for magickal enchantment. During the Venus Cazimi I will be doing Rose Readings and blessing the white roses in the energy of the heart chakra in the Sedona Hexagram. For those who desire, I will channel a message from your heart for 2022. The rose is then dried and the petals are placed with crystal beings and sacred oils to prepare a personal talisman that will hold the energy of self nurturing, unconditional love, dreams and desires, commitment to the sacred blue. You will receive the talisman and your personal message. Unfortunately we can not ship to Australia or New Zealand due to the tremendous increase in shipping costs. If you are interested please contact Guy at [email protected] The cost is $95.00 plus shipping. I need to know no later than January 8th so the rose can choose you to be carried into the heart vortex.
For those who desire a navigational map to serve as a tool for the coming year I continue to offer Soul Life Readings. If you would like to schedule a session, please contact me directly at [email protected]. If you would like an astrological overview as how the planets align with your birth chart in 2022, I highly recommend scheduling an overview with Natasha at [email protected]. A big thank you to Natasha who will be sharing with us each month her wisdom of the astrology for the month.
Wishing you inner peace, clear focus and an open heart. Kia Kaha, Be Strong
Love and dragon cuddles, Robbyne
