A lot of healing could occur today, but only if we’re willing to take the needed steps to implement growth and change. This will require us to discuss our deepest wounds, those that we’ve hidden from the outside world. Doing shadow work is very hard and complicated at times because we aren’t prepared to get down in the weeds of the issue.
However, because Mars and centaur Chiron are squaring off in the sky, it’s a wonderful time to explore your subconscious and understand the ways you can mend your tender heart from past pain and emotional upset.
The caution is that you might want to do the work to make a change but not actually do it. Putting problems on the back burner isn’t advised because they’ll only accumulate and continue to weigh on your mind into the future. Try to discuss your issues with others or reach out to those in need of help. A little compassion will go a long way today and let people know that they aren’t alone, and the same applies to you. Above all, choose love and kindness today.

Although creativity is well supported today, the challenge to our balance may keep us from focusing directly on any tangible creative endeavors. Adaptability and maintaining balance are crucial to ending the day on the positive side of the ledger.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
2/8/2022 FIRST QUARTER MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
2/16/2022 FULL MOON IN LEO: You feel safe in moments when you can impress others and get praise and admiration. Yet, when you get into the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. It is very important to accept feedback and use it for improvement.
2/23/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
This is a tricky time, as you may find yourself enmeshed with others, overly concerned with how they will take it if you say no or express how you really feel. Do you feel anxious saying no to someone, so you capitulate, even knowing the outcome will not be in your best interest? Do you feel like it’s your job to stop someone from facing their challenges?
Instead, you might take on their responsibilities, rescuing them instead of giving them the freedom to learn their lessons their way. Perhaps you feel that if they only knew how much you cared, they would change and then all would be well?
Armadillo Spirit asks you to be honest with yourself and others, no matter how difficult that may be or how much you may fear losing someone or something. Face your fear, tell the truth, and set your boundaries. You will be amazed at the miracles that happen when you let Armadillo Spirit protect you from taking on too much, becoming a people pleaser, and losing your integrity.
Another message of protection from Armadillo Spirit is to relax—live and let live. If you or someone else is being defensive, you are called to step back and trust in Spirit’s plan.
