Cancer / Leo / Virgo IMBOLC
Deep beneath winter’s surface, the earth serpent stirs, called from dreaming as subtle energies shift and earth’s longing for light, sheltered in winter dreaming, is born. We lift hopeful candles and torches to the night sky, calling to the moon and her starry attendants, invoking the return of light. . . .
. . . we seek a place where we can feel living earth beneath our feet, offer prayers, poems, songs, dance invocations and blessings. We open our arms and hearts to the light—that it may unfold in the world and in us, that we may be candles of prayer and blessing wherever we go.
Leo (Fire): Creativity, charisma, warmth, and enthusiasm. Gather with others to celebrate and share bounty.
Mercury: communication, travel, thought
Aquarius (Air): Community, ingenuity, collaboration, idealistic. It’s time to honor the philosophy of love and the power of community.
January 31st: Total Lunar Eclipse occurs at 11° Leo. As the Moon dims look within for what is bright and beautiful. Let the emerging Lunar light cast off shadows, then shine your true colors for the world. Sandra Pastorius © Mother Tongue Ink 2017 — From We’Moon 2018 – Eclipses: 2018 pg. 22

Both as a person and country, if we ‘re too self-centered, the world becomes a worse place and our world and community suffers. If we overextend ourselves and put other’s needs ahead of our own- all the time- we don’t get our work done and lose the resilience we need to be of service.
The Sun and Venus now in expansive, political Aquarius, joined by Mercury on Wednesday, help us see the bigger picture. They encourage us to think about our friends, our civic duty, and on a more metaphysical level, they encourage us to dwell on the interconnectedness of all sentient beings. They underlined the fact that if one population gets the flu, the chances are, so will all the others. . . .
