I also had another issue, mainly that I
felt I didn’t belong to this world. I looked
at others as a spectator in some alien way.
When training to become a yoga
teacher I learnt what the chakras
represented and how the chakras impact
our lives. Realising my inability to
openly communicate was a priority,
I set about meditating on my throat

Chakra is a Sanskrit word translating
to mean ‘wheel of spinning energy’,
named as such because of the circular
shape. There are seven major chakras
located along the spine extending out to
the front and back of the body.
The function of the chakras affects
every aspect of who we are and how we
You could think of chakras as
invisible, rechargeable batteries. They
are recharged, via meditation, through
contact with the cosmic energy in much

cosmic energy is free! The seven major
chakras are in the centre of the body and
aligned with this vertical power line.
Energy is then transported through our
veins in the same way as electrical wires
send energy to power outlets.
Throughout life we may have
experienced feelings of lack of
confidence, indifference or maybe no
passion or pleasure, as I did. We are
taught to repress our need for pleasure
and, in so doing, repress our natural
bodily impulses. It leads, of course, to
separation of mind and body.
These measures arise from the mind,
seldom from the body. As a result, we then
may experience a backlash in our emotions.
When we’re not functioning
optimally, we could experience such
health problems as excessive weight
gain, constipation, sciatica, degenerative
arthritis or knee issues. Maybe you’re
finding it difficult to bring in your
boundaries, or have low confidence,
experience indecisiveness, speak loudly
or have attachments, to name only a few
issues. These are signs that the chakras
are not balanced.
When balanced we experience
stillness in being grounded and able to
embrace change. We feel confident and
empowered, have strong intuition and
Meditating or focusing on each of the
seven major chakras will help bring balance
to your life or enhance it in other ways.

ven though this is Aquarius’s
month, the real action is in a
number of intense clusters in
Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces and
Aries, with great support from Jupiter
in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius. And
all of these wrap around the ongoing
T-square between Pluto, Uranus and
the Black Moon. This will become
progressively more potent during the
course of the month as the Kali asteroid
locks the three into a grand cross peaking
around the first of two eclipses in March.
Certainly, there is no lack of deep
challenges inherent in this configuration,
emotionally, psychologically, spiritually
and in the outer world. This intensity in the
collective is meant to bring about significant
and long-lasting change in all of our lives.
The presence of the Black Moon and Kali
heightens and deepens this urge, both from
the very core of ourselves and from the
outside world. As I’ve written in the past, it
would be a tremendous loss of opportunity
to fall into victim mode, as the same
astrological events give us access to the
depths of healing and liberation previously
unknown to many of us.
What also makes this month different
is that there is good holding from the Sun
in Aquarius and Saturn in Sagittarius,
in sextile to each other and reaching out
through positive aspects to the two most
radical of these protagonists, Uranus and
the Black Moon. Both of the former push
for greater conscious awareness and the
need to know more deeply what we are
Saturn trining Uranus can allow us to
consciously use the energies for dramatic
change with discipline and focus and
an eye on how to change structures to
suit emerging innovations and creative
possibilities. In sextiling the Black Moon,
he supports us to understand the deeper
psycho spiritual layers of our emotional
beings and the workings of these so-called
dark goddesses as they push for real change,
personal purification and transformation.
In many ways, the Sun in Aquarius echoes
the same urge to know but from a more
detached, over viewing perspective.
The Moon in Scorpio and at the last
quarter phase is also pivotal. She conjuncts
the marriage goddess Juno while sextiling
a conjunction of Eros, Lilith and Venus in
Capricorn and trining Neptune and the
earth mother Ceres in Pisces. A Scorpio
Moon balances out the cerebral tendencies
of Aquarius and, while the latter provides
excellent insight into situations, such a deep
resonant moon is good to have at such an
intense time. She represents those parts of
us that are not afraid to dive deeply into the
Another expression of this intensity is
where Venus in Capricorn has conjunctions
to Lilith and Eros on one side and Medusa,
Pluto and Mercury on the other! This
profound mix of deep love, tantric depth
and transformative power ensures that this
is an incredibly meaningful time in our
relationship lives, with a deep urge towards
clearing out old relationship patterning. To
reclaim and purify the depths of the sacred
feminine and our sexuality is a sacred
This whole conjunction receives
supportive sextiles from the Moon conjunct
Juno and Mars in Scorpio, and from
another exceptional healing conjunction,
in Neptune, Hekate and Chiron in Pisces.
And these latter conjunctions trine each
other, forming a very integrated pattern
that supports great movements in our
relating and relationships, coupled with
opportunities for great heart, sexual and
Given the presence of Medusa, Lilith
and Pluto in the mix, its expressions are not
going to be just light and love. The mutual
demand to explore the depths and heal
deep pain is radically amplified by squares
to Uranus and Persephone in Aries and the
Black Moon in Libra. So the evolution of
our love lives engages once again with this
collected T-square. It’s good to call on the
deepest expressions of grace and spiritual
and therapeutic support to consciously
work with the rebirth motifs of this time,
while staying open to some extraordinary
opportunities for liberation from the old.
And the grace is there! Transiting
Jupiter, still exactly on the North node in
Virgo, trines Pluto and Mercury and is
in an expansive opposition to Chiron the
Wounded Healer. And while Venus is under
siege from a number of heavyweights she
will also come into a trine with Jupiter in
the course of the month. (It is important
also to acknowledge the more hidden
underlying grace and sacred power of
“darker”, whether Pluto and Persephone or
Medusa and Lilith!)
I am also deeply impressed by the
conjunction of Neptune, Hekate and
Chiron, which reinforces the availability
of tremendous healing and spiritual
opportunities. Hekate and Chiron together
is a meeting of the multi-skilled medicine
woman and medicine man within us, made
even more available by the psychically
opening energies of Neptune. The
combination heightens the effectiveness
of all healing and spiritual processes. It
places particular emphasis on shamanic
work, earth and nature healing and the
continuing unfolding of what was originally
called spiritual midwifery, now expressing
itself through rebirthing processes, doula
work and now shamanic midwifery.
Put yourself in the right places to take
maximum advantage of this incredibly
challenging and rich month.
