2 Jaguar

[Saturday 2 February 2019. Imbolc (scroll down for more information)]

Today is about the challenge of stealth. Jaguar must use the power of stealth-magic wisely, whilst knowing that secrecy eventually turns to decay.

The duality of the Reed (Skywalker) Timewave is that although we can enjoy the view from above, we must simultaneously be connected through the feelings to the ground below. To this end, we call upon the shamanic cat instincts to observe and respond to the energy behind things.

Feel and respond; listen with X-ray smell. Be alert to the unusual, to the discordant and to any strange feelings.

Today affords you the opportunity to become aware of how you can transform negative or blocked energies.

As we proceed through this 13-day timewave and the connection to our authority, we need to learn protection. Call upon the magnificence of the big cats or other jungle animals you feel an affinity with to teach you how to protect your sovereignty in the world.

Today, connect to the fierceness of the soul, the fierce courage which recognises that truth, love and divinity are your guiding lights and your legitimate experience.

[Message from Laurence about Imbolc]
Imbolc (also known as Brigid's Day or Candlemas)
In the Celtic Wheel and the cycle of the solar calendar, Imbolc traditionally falls on 2 February.* 

This is a real gateway, like all of the pagan or Medicine Wheel festivals or markers, based on real astronomical alignments – in this case, midway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox** – and the annual cycles that directly affect our bodies and, therefore, indirectly affect our social year.

Imbolc is the early sprouting of the new energy first conceived at Winter Solstice. It is also the time for Spring cleaning of mind, body, feelings and our space. Space clearing is incredibly powerful. Each time I do it, I am reminded just how immediate the effect is – it literally creates more psychic space. We feel so much lighter. The clearing and cleaning is to make way for the upcoming Spring energy; it is preparation for birth with the Spring Equinox.

[Notes from Carey]

* These dates refer to the Northern Hemisphere. Imbolc in the Southern Hemisphere falls on 2 August.
** The actual astronomical cross-quarter date for Imbolc this year is 4 February 2019 (exact time 10:10 UTC/GMT), when the Sun is at 15° Aquarius. ‘The solar events are determined astronomically, and vary a little bit due to factors such as leap year. The true cross-quarter days are actually a few days later than the traditional dates of Imbolc, Beltaine, Lughnasadh, and Samhain, and sources vary as to the exact dates of their observance as well.’
