Mercury Retrograde is over, and Spring is just ahead - my energy forecast is The Lover
The Lover is a way of being in the world that is giving of ourselves, open to intimacy, and passionate. This way of being extends beyond the mass-market hype of Valentine's Day, into all areas and aspects of life. Let your self go and LOVE each day as it comes! Love being in the world, awakening to the sunshine, walking beneath green (or winter-bare trees), and viewing the sunset and deepening dusk at day's end. Love each moment you're awake and breathing, and each little thing you do during the day - whether it's washing the dishes, attending to your *work*, creating a masterpiece (or playfully bringing color and form into being). Love the time you spend with others, love your animal friends, and love your time in solitude.
As with all archetypes, there is a down side to The Lover's energy: it can be possessive. While it's true that you can't really let go of something unless you've held onto it, it takes a fine discernment to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em. Perhaps this month it's best to put our attention into the giving (of ourselves) rather than the holding-on.
Themes for this month revolve around I Want / I Have. The focus on resources at all levels, including pleasure, beauty, and comfort. "More" is not always more, and when you choose quality and substance over the superficial need to possess, you are truly walking under the light of The Lover.
