THE ARCHETYPE ENERGY OF THE YEAR
Welcome to the New Energy of 2019! A new month, a new year and a new energy field has opened up for all of us.
As January is the beginning of a new year, before we talk about the archetype of January, we need to understand the Archetype Energy of the Year in which the Magician is nestled this year.
THE EMPRESS & 2019
2019 year is a 3 year and holds the energy of the Empress archetype.
I’ve been diving into the energy patterns of the Empress archetype and working with her closely as we produced the 2019 Archetype Handbook of the year.
Ah, the Empress. She is my second favorite archetype. (My favorite being my own personal Life Archetype :)
What I adore and admire about the Empress is her luscious earth magick and medicine but also her lesser known aspects like the fierce Protectress. She is not just earth; she is also fire.
If you look at the elemental cycle and it’s interactions, this makes sense as earth is nourished by the ashes of the fire. Back in the early days, before central heating was a commodity, the fire was kept alive during the night by packing it into a coat of ashes as it’s much easier to rekindle a fire in the mornings than having to build it from scratch each time. The perfect collaboration.
MESSAGE FROM THE EMPRESS
The Empress has shown me that she is asking us to step up and out of our somewhat detached and floaty states (a possible side effect of the previous year with the High Priestess archetype in charge) and deeply connect to her messages.
While the Empress is usually known for her focus on creation, her message this year are focused on luscious sustainability with a clear call to re-define our personal eco-systems. From our homes to our careers, to our body to our environment to our prosperity creation and personal creation processes. She demands we level up, roll up our eco-friendly sleeves and get to work in the gardens of our life.
But, and here’s the good news, not in a hustle and desperation kind of way. No. Luscious sustainability is the keyword. Sometimes that does require we get dirt under our manicured fingernails and don an apron. Digging our hands into the soil of our lives is a sensual act if we engage all of our senses. Which the Empress advises us to do.
JANUARY & THE MAGICIAN ARCHETYPE
January, the month ruled by the Magician archetype, reminds us to reconnect to our dreams and desires and set clear manifestation intentions and goals. Otherwise we will just be squandering our precious energy and our tools. There’s no need to put on a show just to impress others. No need to fall into the achieve-your-best-year-yet trap.
As I type these words the world outside my window is slowly being blanketed by snow. The perfect message to slow down, to go within to where our personal magick resides, to envision that which we want to see come to life come spring.
This does not mean we don’t do. Far from it!
The Magician wants us to manifest at lightning speed, which requires great precision.
Firstly, for that to happen, we need to know what it is we are wanting to manifest in the first place.
Secondly, we need to make sure we have the adequate tools to do so.
And thirdly, we need to know how to use these tools.
This might require some practice first. Focused practice. Committed practice. Alchemy happens through precision and not by chance.
THE EMPRESS & THE CAPRICORN NEW MOON & SOLAR ECLIPSE
Looking at the cosmos and the astrological show happening , an apron could come in handy when we make our way into the Capricorn New Moon and the solar eclipse.
Eclipse energy is always about surprising plot turns and unexpected events while Capricorn makes sure we don’t meander too far without putting in the work required first.
The Empress shows us that meandering and work can absolutely go together. And while meandering might not be your natural movement style, the Empress invites us to loosen our death grip on outcomes and enjoy the journey instead.
There needs to be air to breathe, time to admire the beauty and work with the magick and medicine so freely given. Both the external and the internal.
THE EMPRESS & AQUARIUS FULL MOON + LUNAR ECLIPSE
This powerful first Full Moon calls for a pause and epic release of all that is outdated and outworn. A moment of silence is in order as we listen to the cosmic messages and interpret the signs and symbols strewn on our path. Becoming aware of what is being eclipsed out or into our lives with the lunar eclipse. These markers will influence us for a long time to come.
Looking at the cosmos and the astrological show happening, the Empress urges us to mother ourselves, to practice sacred self-care as the eclipse energy rattles through our energy system. Eclipse energy is always about surprising plot turns and unexpected events which might well trigger the independence-loving Aquarius energy, that we are moving into now, into action.
Again, hit that pause button, take a good look at your life stage and let the Magician guide you to what needs to be alchemised in your life now before you take your show on the road.
How To Apply to Your Life
Observe the messages, signs and symbols through the Empress lens of luscious sustainability and craft your plan of action based on those insights. If you do this, your year is off to an Empress worthy start.
