Warehouse 21 Benefit February 7th
Tomorrow, millions of Americans will be engaging in the ritual of Super Bowl Sunday. That’s only one of many celebrations on February 2nd, it turns out: There’s Groundhog Day, Candlemas, Candelaria Day, St. Brigid’s Day, Imbolt…every year for centuries, people celebrate February 2nd. Why?It happens to be the mid-way point between the winter solstice and spring equinox, and people all over the world have used it to both to rejoice that Spring is coming, and as a magical day that can predict the weather to come: whether it’s going to be an early Spring or not, and whether it’s going to get cold again, or is it time to prepare the earth for spring planting? Here are the old poems that sum it up:
“If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, There’ll be two winters in the year. Scottish poem (Anon)
If Candlemas be fair and bright, Winter has another flight. If Candlemas brings clouds and rain, Winter will not come again. English poem (Anon)”
In New Mexico, Native Americans with rituals that combine Spanish Catholicism and their own Nature-based spirituality, celebrate Candelaria Day in some pueblos with dances that begin early in the morning. Tomorrow morning I’m heading down South to San Felipe to get out in Nature and go to the dances. The pueblo is across a bridge and along the banks of the Rio Grande, and it’s nice to walk along the river and under the cottonwood trees, in earshot of the drums and singing. It’s easy to forget how I need the calming, soothing ,expansive feelings of being out in Nature.
February 2nd celebrates that we’re halfway through Winter and Spring is coming! Tomorrow is a naturally excellent day to be out in Nature (before the Super Bowl) to get some omens of your own about what you want to grow this Spring. Bless your new beginnings on February 2nd, and be alert to the omens of the day!

February 2014 Psychic Impressions
This month is particularly good for self-reinvention. Its energy emboldens way more than usual, so we can embody positive new self-concepts that bring relief and emotional fulfillment.
The psychic pictograph, “Flip the Switch”, points out that this month’s tension increases for people whose life choices produce undesirable results, but the tension tends to motivate. Perhaps first paralyze a bit, but ultimately motivate. The pressure people feel to change catapults many to choose love, to let go, to forget the past, and to choose to focus on what makes them happy.
February’s energies impel us to assemble ourselves at a higher, lighter level, although it’s likely through experiencing the pain of being assembled at a lower level that drives us to “flip the switch”, let go of a lot, and receive the light of our own consciousness in a higher place.
The nature of breakthroughs now is that they “break the rules”, shattering an old order. Peoples’ individual personal worlds can experience radical reorganization. As individuals root themselves at a more truthful level, a lot of chaff coming from their old center blows off. It’s disconcerting and upsetting, but allow things to erupt, and look past the eruption to the aftermath of greater truth.
The Good and the Bad #1: The American Hustle: February is full of opportunity and shows people that life always gives you another chance. Its energy is quick, light, and effective pulsing through positive channels, and allows for big change. However, it makes acting out of all kinds more likely. There’s a lot of crazy energy generated by unbalanced people this month, so be quick to walk away: do not provoke, retaliate, or make yourself a target. Trying to help difficult people could waste your time and backfire. Scammers are out in force!
The Good and the Bad #2: February brings new connections and an expansion of networks, but twith it the tendency to spread oneself to thin and not take into account unexpected interruptions. Wherever you’re going in life, allow for it to take longer than you expect. People will likely have to adjust to some eruptive mitigating circumstances.
Psychic Horoscopes for February 2014-Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Your fire is building, there are new people helping you, and you have a lot of work to do. You’re still in a challenging period where you’re seeking ways to realize dreams; many things you’ve tried haven’t worked, and you still have some things to go through that don’t work, but there’s no other way to go but through, so you’re learning as you go what brings emotional harmony. Challenges come your way that are unavoidable: you just have to stay self-aware and stick to your real values and ideals.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): The month is bittersweet in that you’re closer to your goals, but you’re also more vividly realizing what doesn’t work in your life or what you have to give up to get what you want. The most helpful action to take is to not judge your circumstances. You don’t know the end of the story, which looks like it could be thrilling! Now you have to accept the dues you have to pay and the wonderfulness of a goal or fulfillment you see more clearly now.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You might find a way to deal with a material loss in a better fashion. You have better ideas now. This is a month to seek solutions for things that aren’t working. You have better luck finding health fixes. You might be ready to do something but the world isn’t, but don’t worry: current reality the starting point that transforms with your creative ideas.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): You’re on your way! Some happy understanding about what’s true for you, what you can do, and what you can look forward to, has occurred. You experience more self-satisfaction this month, and extra insight and understanding that makes you happily anticipate the future!
