Hello Freeing February
February is a clearing month. There will be a flood of new insights / downloads that help us release whatever took place in capricorn season. Over the weekend Venus has officially stationed direct, this will boost our confidence and careers & love will feel way more free flowing as we organized through some emotional chaos and will be out of her post shadow period right around February 10th.
This retrograde thought us of letting go of our pride & ego and surrender deeper into love more fully & freely.
