Jan 2020 Astrological Changes

 *All times are listed as CST.*  


The Astrological changes of Jan 2020 are immense.  The Pluto Saturn conjunction in Capricorn (Jan 12th at 10:59am) will bring changes in governments, institutions, organizations, and personally.  It will bring great opportunities for growth.  Pluto and Saturn were last conjunct in Capricorn over 500 years ago, just two months after Martin Luther posted his thesis on the church door.  This particular change in 2020 is seeing a split in the United Methodist Church over inclusion of LGBTQ community.  Additionally on Jan 12th, Mercury will be conjunct with Saturn at 3:51am and conjunct Pluto at 4:14am.  


This change follows a full moon on Jan 10th at 1:2pm with a lunar eclipse.  Uranus will go direct at 7:49pm.  


The Sun will be conjunct Pluto at 7:21am and conjunct Saturn at 9:15am, all on Jan 13th.  There are a number of other very interesting configurations happening in Jan, so it's a wonderful time for everyone to meditate and open to new growth.  


If we can maintain positive energies and not let ourselves be too stressed out, we can handle powerful energies much better. Prayer is an excellent way to help achieve our goals.  We need to remember that God has more energy than the planets. 

Why Study Tumo?

  

…also known as hara, fire in the belly, primordial force or psychic heat.
 

Do you ever have rumbling in your lower belly?  explosive anger?  great passion? are you overly stubborn? Your tumo might be at work in your system.  If you aren’t using it in positive ways, it will find some place to express.  It is an energy that wants to be doing something.  It especially likes projects and you may find yourself volunteering for more than you want to handle.
 

Tumo is located in the lower belly and is a powerhouse of energy.  It can work on all levels – bringing healing and great strength to the physical body, great passion and motivation to the emotional body, increased creativity and comprehensive abilities to the mental, and helps in achieving a closer connection with God and transcendental levels.  It is the energy behind leadership.
 

Tumo can help you be the person you really are and want to be.  

Why study Kundalini?

 Whether you are reaching for your genius levels or just trying to get through the day, understanding how your kundalini and chakras work can help.  Kundalini is an energy that everyone has, in varying degrees.  It gives us our intelligence and helps us achieve higher spiritual direction and blessings in our lives.
 

Chakras are energy vortices through which our kundalini moves.  They relate closely to our endocrine system, as well as affecting our bodies in many other ways.  When they are open and flowing we are more effective in our lives and our comprehension is increased.
 

It is also possible to experience a strong release of extra kundalini.  When this first happens, there can be incredible experiences and trauma that a person goes through as it cleanses and opens the system to transcendent levels.  If persons have studied this energy, they are better prepared to handle the power of a spontaneous release.  They will have already opened the chakras and other energy paths, so that the new transitions are much easier.
 

Tumo and kundalini are two very separate energies, although they do work together at times.  Some persons have experienced large releases of both kundalini and tumo at the same time.  It is not the easiest way to develop but very interesting! 

Why study at all?

  

We are meant to grow and develop.  It is part of our evolutionary (growth) path.  If we don’t take an active part in this process, we attract experiences and situations to ourselves to force us into growth.  
 

By taking an active part in our development, we understand situations better, can go further in our growth and find greater joy enrichment in all areas of life.
