THE MONTH OF LOVE

“If the house of the world is dark, love will find a way to create windows.” Rumi

           This month of Love proffers some interesting challenges regarding the topic. The planet of marriage/partnership (Uranus) in the sign of values/security (Taurus) challenges (and is challenged by) Saturn, the planet of long-term karma/initiation in the sign of all of humanity, Aquarius. This strong challenge isn’t the only one this month. Mars is also challenging and being challenged by Venus. (Need we explain this one?) So, right up until the 26th it is Man vs Woman and One-on-One partnerships vs the rest of humanity. It’s not a month set up for an easy, flirty, fun Valentine’s Day.

          However, “The Soul Loves a Challenge!” This is an important esoteric maxim. We don’t tend to grow much when all is going well; in fact, science has proven that we don’t even remember those good times anywhere near as well as we remember the bad times. We will remember 2020 and January of 2021. We have been living through times of high potential for Soul Growth.

This month we have the opportunity of standing with our partners, be they spouses, business or dear friends and then looking out at “them” and making a conscious decision to love, each other AND them, no matter what. Men and women can gaze across the gulf of differences between the two and choose to figure it out anyway. These four planets in the signs of Values and Humanity give us the opportunity to determine who we really are. Are we our challenges? Or are we what we choose to become, together, in the face of challenge? While it IS a time for social change, we can do it while remembering to love.

 Everyone: Choose to love.
