Esoteric astrology as news for the week of Feb. 1 through Feb. 7:

St. Brigid’s Day, Candlemas, Groundhog Day, Imbolc, Aquarius new moon — these are the beginning of February’s festivals, all of them having to do with light — uplifting humanity from the darkness of winter to the new light of spring. These are midwinter festivals and rituals. Rituals build the Rainbow Bridge between heaven and earth. Rituals balance us. Monday is the new moon festival, 16 degrees Aquarius. At new moon times, we support and uphold all the unified endeavors (10 seed groups serving humanity) of the New Group of World Servers. 
Tuesday is Chinese Lunar New Year of the Yin Earth Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019; note there is no 1960s), a scrupulous sort of character and the 12th (final) of the zodiac animals. Pig is a symbol of wealth and prosperity. Pig enjoys himself, while also being very practical and realistic. They work hard and seek security, are energetic and very enthusiastic and often in positions of power. Earth Pig is friends with everyone. They are happy, fortunate, not very romantic, gentle, focused, trusting and optimistic. Though very knowledgeable, they don’t talk much. Their homes are orderly and organized. Pig loves healthy and harmonious living. Children bring them great joy. So do those born in tiger, rabbit and goat years. Chinese Earth elements years are like a pause in the seasons. 
This Earth Yin Year of the Pig is an ending year, completing a 12-year a cycle. It’s good this year to be yielding, soft and receptive. To have fun and be playful, replenishing one’s energy. It is also a time to complete things, finish projects. Look around, gather what is not needed and give it away. Next year a new cycle begins.
