As February rolls into town this week we have one thing on our mind: love. And not just because Valentine’s Day is coming up! If love has you stressed out it is time to invest in some solutions!
If you checked out my annual rundown of the big events this year (you can find it here) you noticed that there is a lot going on! And in February we have a solar eclipse that highlights the theme of love … love for yourself, love for your partner, love for your community. How can we live in a manner that is good for all involved? How can we make our lives an act of love toward the world? How can we find love at all?
While Valentine’s Day is not an astrological event the eclipse does happen on February 15 which is one day after. Relationships can be interesting this month!
There are many people who put a lot of emphasis on Valentine’s Day and what it means, and many of these people are single. If you are single and looking for love may I suggest that instead of gauging our success in life based on our relationship status that this year we gauge our success based on the quality of the relationship we have with the self? How do I love myself? How do I treat myself? How do I honor myself? If we treat ourselves well it is likely that we will treat those we care about well, also. But if we are cruel are critical with ourselves on a regular basis then our relationships with others are bound to reflect this inner conflict, too.
If we want to have successful relationships we really do have to start with the self. I know that is cliche but it is also very, very true. If February is all about love let us love ourselves and then work out from there! Start from within and then move outward toward the people you encounter in your life. As you treat the people you encounter with love and kindness more people will be drawn to you and you will be able to meet a partner by being the loving person that you are looking for!
Once you have the relationship with yourself sorted out then you are ready to play well with others. I joke but it’s true, too. Eclipses put stress on relationships and this is a great time to judge how healthy things are. Do you become closer during stressful times? Or do you turn on each other? People aren’t perfect and no one is expected to be perfect in relationships but this is a great month to determine the general feeling surrounding your relationships. Is your relationship supportive? Do you use humor to help diffuse tension? When the going gets tough do you work together to get things back on track? If the answer to any of these questions is no then I recommend figuring out how to improve the health of the relationship by first working on yourself and second discussing with your partner your concerns and your plans to help improve things between the two of you. Eclipses are a great time for a fresh start … with your partner or on your own, depending on your personal situation.
If you need an objective voice in figuring out where you are at in relationships (whether coupled or single) I am still offering a great deal on my intuitive readings! I use astrology and/or tarot to help illuminate the path you are walking so that you can decide where to go!
Welcome February and welcome love into your life! We can all use more love, starting with ourselves.
