Erica's Star Scopes of 2020

Welcome to Erica’s first STAR SCOPES of 2021. It is a major new term in the school of life. The energies of the Winter Solstice and the planetary conjunctions have given us a new blank page and a whole new curriculum.  In fact, it’s the first page of a new book. The book of the past is closed.  What has been “normal” is gone and we as a collective must find ways to create an alternative which embraces, first and foremost, kindness embellished with empathy and constantly asking: how will this affect the planet?  We could also add a daily practice of reviewing how each day has gone and how we have made a difference.  We can’t always be that perfect ideal, but we can be aware, mindful and endeavour to correct any wobbles where we have been less than we hoped.  We need to develop the courage to ask for help when we need it. And to offer help when asked by others.  Vulnerability and accountability are the buzzwords for an expanded and loving future and we each have our part to play.

 We live in challenging and exciting times and this is the life course we signed up for.  There may be moments when we wonder what were we thinking ? And why we didn’t sign up for flowering arranging in the Andromedin system? But we are here.  Gaia need us, and we know we have what it takes. Never has there been a greater opportunity to speak out, be authentic and intend that a kind and compassionate life is possible for all. While on the surface the world looks to be even more divided, it calls us to live as kindly and compassionately as we can.  Sometimes that means stepping back and not allowing our personal triggers to bring us to aggressive behaviour.  Sometimes that means stepping forward and standing alongside those who are being oppressed – that is assertion. Be open to the old falling away and new paradigms manifesting. Above all, do not feed fear.

I am reminded of the story of the native brave who called on the tribal elder to ask about his disturbing dreams.  He described a black and a white wolf fighting inside him. He said: I am afraid. The black wolf is so strong. Will it win?  Which one will win?  The elder replied:  My son, which one do you feed? 

 

My Starscopes are channelled using an alchemy of astrological signs, tarot insight, and angelic guidance.  This month, I am calling in the wisdom of the angels combined with tarot.   As you know, I always work with the mighty angelic realms. Angels are no fluffy inventions; they are mighty cosmic energies capable of omnipresence and the ability to bring wisdom and love to any situation. Amongst their ranks are the Powers, Principalities, Thrones, Virtues, Cherubim, Seraphim and The Archangels.  The Archangel who presides over January is Gabriel, the divine messenger who is present at births and new beginnings. So, at the birth of this new calendar year as we step over the threshold into the Age of Aquarius, Gabriel is here to guide us to renew the message of truth, to experience the fullness of this life on earth. Ask Gabriel to help you become still, to hear the message and find your true path. We each have a unique path, and yet we walk together. Honour yourself and others. and the guidance of the fairy realms who also fight so hard for our mother earth.

 

We must adapt and courageously champion our beautiful planet and stand firm with those who are brave enough to be the change we need to see. As the prophecy states: when the earth grows sick, and the animals are dying, there will come forth people of all races, creeds and colours to defend her. And by their courage and actions they shall make the earth green and fertile again.  They shall be known as the warriors of the rainbow.   This is a paraphrase.  There are many versions of the Rainbow Warrior, including one in an evangelic text, Warrior of the Rainbow published in 1962.  Some hold that is the origin.  However, we do not know how the authors came by the words. Whatever the origin, it matters not to me. They inspired the formation of Greenpeace and their flagship, the Rainbow Warrior which the French secret service shamefully bombed and sank whilst she stood in dock in New Zealand.  The public outcry had quite the opposite effect they hoped for. The New Zealanders caught and jailed them, fundraising was set aflame and Rainbow Warrior Two was built amidst the meme:  You can’t sink a rainbow. For me, the words stand as a call to arms, and their origin is less important than the message. So, let us stand as rainbow warriors alongside the awesome elementals: the fairies, the merfolk, and the dragons and make this year a year when our voice of care and compassion is heard.  Even a small action is a step, and you are never alone with a dragon by your side!

CAPRICORN 22nd December-20th January

January is an inside job as the year begins.  The focus is on finding your balance as the world considers re-emerging from lockdown and disruption. For your this will feel like the need to restructure and perhaps follow a new path.  The balance you need to find is the compromise between your fears about moving into a new zone of life and your practical drive to create a life which better suits your needs in this brave new world. Tap into the power of passionate ideas and creative inspiration.  The hows, wheres, and whys will fall into place once you have your inner vision painted.

AQUARIUS 21st January-19th Feb

Wow!  Well, aren’t you the sign of the season!?  We are heading towards the age of Aquarius. Major planets are moving to your sign.  And if that isn’t enough for you, this Starscope is jam-packed-full of major arcana cards. It is time for you to find inner strength, wisdom, inspiration, trust, faith and dust off the magic wand.  I hope you’re feeling powerful. Only one thing is going to rain on your parade and that’s your ego. “I can’t”, “what if…” “I’ll have to change/move/face my fears”.  Oh, that inner little voice of dissent. We’ve all got one. However, you are the sign of lateral thinking, blue sky vision and daring-do.  Seek out those who will support you and share the adventure.

PISCES 20th February-20th March

The ship has left harbour and your new journey is underway. You have a fairy godmother presenting you with a new baby. This might literally be a new addition to the family, either human or fur.  Or it could be a new idea, home or friendship. You might be expecting this, or it may come as a surprise. Either way, it’s time to embrace the new.  You have powerful archangels with you who oversee our connection to others.  There is also an indication of the law or justice.  So, if you have any of those in process, they are about to move forward. On the surface it may be causing your mind to spin. Don’t go down the worry walkway. It’s all going to be fine – in the end.

ARIES 21st March-20th April

By the power of the moon, it can be a wonderful first month of the year for the first sign of the zodiac. If emotions have been awash as the world witnessed the winter solstice and the powerful changing astrological alignment, now is the time to sit with the moon and feel her calm reassurance. Peace of mind is yours for the choosing. It can be a time of positive outlook and a celebration of all that is possible in the future. You have the reins of life in your hands to steer as you wish.

TAURUS 21st April-21st May

The grounded instinct of your nature knows there is work to be done this year. The loving influence of your ruling planet, Venus, is opening doors to emotions and waves of vulnerability which makes a stoic bull feel very uneasy.  And yet, deep inside you understand this is a major opportunity to regroup and remodel your life.  Tap into your desire and passions.  Mentally, prepare.  It is not yet the time to take action, but a time to create a clear vision.

GEMINI 22nd May-21st June

Our world is undergoing a major transformation and that can feel unnerving.  It may seem impossible to keep a grip on reality, especially as you are an air sign of duality and nimble thinking. Keep a clear, impartial head and check facts and research as much as you can in books. In this way, you can take time to find out what aligns with your truth.  You will know it is your truth if it feels right in your heart.  In your daily dealings, be courteous, kind, generous and keep your boundaries in place.

CANCER 22nd June-23rd July

 You are right in your element as the year begins – water.  Allow your intuitive, emotional guidance system to feel the potential as we leave the challenges of 2020 behind and face a new path. Home is a sanctuary and nature, in particular trees, are your succour and friends. Don’t let the madness of the whirling world stress you. And be wary of things which seem too good to be true, or people whose energy seems “off” to you.  Trust your instincts.

LEO 24th July-23rd August

Life at home should feel good and it is your place of contentment. You are an impulsive fire sign, but this month you need to bring your intellect online and keep a clear head.  That is because your powers of manifestation are particularly strong this month.  What you focus your attention on may create your reality more readily than usual. So, be very mindful where you place that focus. It’s also a good month to set your intention to balance the books and settle debts.

VIRGO 24th August-23rd September

There’s a new dawn and a new reality waiting. It’s time to move on and expect a more fulfilling life. You are a cautious sign, so given the state of the world you may have a problem getting past your ego’s eye view and believing that this can be possible. Hope is always there, even if we can’t see it. Optimistic expectations can help change a negative situation into a positive one.  It’s a matter of perspective.

LIBRA 24th September-23rd October

Make it your mission to fall in love with life again. 2020 deal some harsh lessons. Sit with them, embrace what they have to teach. Acknowledge the wounds and sadness and then turn your attention to ways that you can see the fun in life.  Children are adept at this.  They can find ways to play in the present when looking back is too sad. So, whatever life looks like, look for the silver lining, the rainbow after the storm and ask the angels to send you signs that you are loved.

SCORPIO 24th October-22nd November

Scorpio, you can look into the depths before you’ll raise your eyes to the stars, but this month you have so many reasons to stargaze. You have the possibility to see life clearly and make a wish for the future. Trust that the world is actually a safe place, where people can be kind and prosperity is a birthright.  Now, I know, I know, it may not look like that.  You may see the opposite if you watch too much media. Life has always been a journey of light and shadow.  Choose the light and above all, be grateful for every tiny thing.

SAGITTARIUS 23rd November-21st December

The misfortunes of last year really did seem relentless. We do now have a new year, a new astrological line up and new hope. Gaze at the stars and allow your intuition to flow. Ask for what you need to know. Ask how the best of the changing world can be revealed to you. Your sign is ruled by Jupiter which is very playing a very prominent role in the new paradigm. This may seem slow or at a standstill, but that won’t last long.  Make the most of the peace and quiet.
