  • 🔭 The February constellations.
    🔀
    Much of this month’s view is taken up by the constellations visible in January – Orion, Taurus and Auriga. See the January item for more on these. This month, you can see that the great hunter Orion is followed through the sky by his two dogs, Canis Major and Canis Minor. You don’t need to know much Latin to work out that these names mean Greater Dog and Lesser Dog.

    Remember that as the sky moves from left to right, these two dogs will faithfully follow Orion night by night throughout the winter and spring months.

    The main star of Canis Major is Sirius, which is the brightest star in the night sky. (We have to say night sky to prevent know-alls pointing out that the Sun is a star so it’s the brightest!) From our northerly latitudes it appears fairly low down, so it can be strongly affected by twinkling, which in such a bright star can make it look as if it’s shooting out coloured rays. It has even been reported as a UFO for this reason! It may not be a welcome astronomical phenomenon, but on a clear frosty night when the stars are sparkling and twinkling like mad, it’s a lovely sight.

    To the left of Orion is another bright star, Procyon, the main star of the Lesser Dog, Canis Minor. And above that are two stars, Castor and Pollux, which mark the heads of the Twins, Gemini. The bodies of the Twins are two lines of stars which extend towards Orion. If there are any bright planets around they will be in the region of sky from Gemini to Taurus, as this is where the line of the Zodiac runs.

  • Your Daily Guidance
    .
    .
    Four of Cups
    .
    You are trying to find the balance between action and inaction. Suffused
    with apathy, you don't recognize new opportunity when it's presented. You
    have choices but consider them to be without merit. Even when someone
    offers you an opportunity you greet it with disdain. Perhaps you're jaded
    by the good things in life, or in a period where the future seems bleak;
    whatever is in the offing does not appear to be the answer even though it
    may be tempting - "is it really the solution?" we wonder. This is an
    impasse, we're not yet ready to make a decision but the time out can be
    used to discover our intentions. Whatever the cause, you're disregarding
    opportunities for growth, renewed happiness, and satisfaction.
    .
    Be wary of letting apathy and withdrawal become a way of life, failing to
    make our wishes known, allowing others to speak for us, having difficulty
    taking action because we're afraid to fail, resenting help or input from
    others, and blindly doing what's expected of us even when it's not really
    what we want to do. Make an honest assessment of where you stand and why
    you are keeping yourself from joining in with others in your life. Don't
    wait for someone else to provide solutions - listen to your Higher Self for
    guidance. Accept and enjoy the "cups" of emotional strength you have, even
    if you decide not to accept the helping hand or new opportunity that's
    offered to you. Look for the "Higher Purpose" in your next task or
    relationship and you'll make life an everyday experience of the Spirit.
