February - Month of Purification

Purification...

A Februa, in Latin, is a cleansing broom used to sweep clean the storage cellars, homes, and temples...

Februa + Arius ('Pertaining To') is February--Pertaining to Purification.

February is a monthlong Purification process which prepares us for Spring.  March.  The Month of Mars -- when the Legions march forth...

But this year when March arrives the planet Mars -- the God of of War -- will still be in Retrograde.  We will experience a suspended period of Purification...  A delayed opening of Spring.  Get ready!  Be prepared...

And what are we purifying?  Whatever we have moldering and funking up our unconscious cellars -- Our Dark Emotions, False beliefs, Self-Limitations, Ignorance, Prejudices, Phantoms, Undiscovered Wounds, Hatreds, Resentments, Darker Destructive Energies, and Strategies for Avoiding such things...

Purifications... Purifying thoughts and emotions.  Rarifying Awareness.  Elevating Energies. Digging ourselves out of long-held Negative Beliefs about Self and Family and Future...

You can already feel it. All this Intensity. Building...  All this threatening Emotional Energy, wanting to come up.  Wanting to come out of the Shadows and into the Light.

IN Ancient Rome the Cellars were opened in February and exposed to the sunlight and the cold winds and rains.  Cellars and homes were swept clean.

February was for preparing to March Forth on March First when the roads of conquest were open again.  The goal was to purify, prepare and find favor with the Gods for doing so.  Purifying.  Preparing to Receive.

It is a Spiritual Purification Process, but one played out in the cleansing of homes and temples and the subterranean Dark of our Souls.

Although we have forgotten such things, we still abide by the Sacred Roman Calendar.  The Julian Calendar is named for Julius Caesar.

We are still Roman in our counting of Years, and the naming of Months.  The Flow of Festivals and Cyclic Celebrations.  What is the Super Bowl but a massively televised visit to the Coliseum?  Bread and Circus and Budweiser.  Not Wiser... Budweiser...

Living in Ignorance of the Annual Spiritual Flow of Energies is not freeing.

February is the Month to sweep and sweep and sweep away the old and rotten and prepare our homes for the Gods and Spirits to enter our Lives anew and lead us to Prosperity.  It is the Month to prepare ourselves for Great things.

That is the tradition.  Can you be ready?  Can you cleanse your Internal Energies too?  That would be Qigong then!  Hao la!"
