The Archetypal Influence of the Month

The Magician symbolizes, the beginning, the new. It’s the initiation, into a new perception, a new dimension, which is what the new year promises, in the first month of the year. It is always about hopes, vision, and dreams; and a certain revolution of ourselves, as we make our way back like the earth, to the beginning of the cycle, change brewing from within us. It’s a reimagination of ourselves – and yet there is a bit of dispersion because of distractions such as vacation and family. There are old threads still unraveling from the previous year, and it’s difficult to gain focus, and so the intention of this month is to remain disciplined in your focus. 

     But it isn’t the focus on the achievement of goals, it’s a focus upon joy, and surrendering of goals, so that your true vision can come through. Because the new year actually starts later in month (in terms of energetic mechanics), and so the Magician is asking you to deeper into your joy, into what makes you feel alive, and vital, and to examine that as a place of intention and exploration. 

     It’s a month to be social, there is a bit of showmanship and an aspect of wheeling and dealing, and there are opportunities awaiting those who socialize, and those who are open to new things, perhaps through business, friends, and family networks. As long as it’s through socializing in joy; for instance, at a dinner or other unique experience. 

     There is an aspect of the Magician, which is also connected to creativity and being creative, and that is where exploring yourself in a different way, in an avenue you haven’t explored previously, will assist you in gaining opportunities. It’s an energy that is around for all of us. 

     On a negative aspect, there can be a lot of superficial interactions and goal setting, and overall superficial feeling about this month. Yet if you are tuned into your joy, you can tap into authentic magical experiences; whereas, if you are too dispersed and social, you can fall into your vanity and shallow perceptions and behaviors, and this is where insecurities can arise. This is especially true, when we fail with our initial and often unintentional or unrealistic goals, which set us up for disappointment when we feel like we aren’t accomplishing what we set ourselves to. This can affect our state of being, shifting us to experience a lacking of vitality, or depressive wave, but that is where creativity comes in. Being creative, ignites that inner fire and gives us that passion and that joy to be focused, and be able to share that with others; which becomes productive, and helps us in creating more profound and magical experiences and connections. 

     It is a real month of magic, new beginnings, new meetings, interactions,  all with a certain sense of whimsical, beginner’s luck, that is with us in launching new things. It can be massively enterprising, especially if it is refined, or if it is helping us to refine ourselves, our family, our cultures. 

     This month, all things related to our expansion, self progression, and education are helpful to align us. Signing up to courses, and planning adventures for the new year, is all very positive. 

     In a way, to conclude, the Magician is asking us to wield our energy and focus it on what makes us joyful. So we can cast our spell and make potent magic, by manifesting.

Testimonials

I came to Sphinx Code because I had some problems in my private life. Greg created my personal Sphinx Blueprint and interpreted my life with such accuracy, especially concerning the issues I worried about. The reading gave me great insight on how to better deal with my issue, and so much more.  This system is so profound and I’m really considering becoming a Wisdom Keeper to enhance my practice.

I found my consultation with Manex more meaningful and useful than those provided by other systems. The way he synthesizes information from a variety of different sources provides a complete picture of possible answers.  I was amazed at the accuracy of the Sphinx Code, almost thinking he was using his psychic skills, but apparently not.  Sphinx Code is the new Astrology or Gene Keys.  It’s so practical and the images stick with you all day.  Super useful to remember your character.

As an experienced astrologer myself, I’m always interested in learning new codes.  Victoria was amazing, as she weaved astrological knowledge, with Human Design, and blew me away with the accuracy of the Sphinx Code.  It gave me a brand-new perspective on the problem areas. Moreover she did this with great insight, delicacy and clarity. I am very grateful for that.  I now know what my work ahead is.

I came to a consultation, because I was puzzled with my current life situation and Manex truly blew my mind with the information from the Sphinx Code.  He gave me clear ways to develop myself and bring practical advice to my life. I have a plan of how to move ahead to avoid further problems. Some things he said became a much-needed insight for me.  It confirmed a lot of what I already knew but somehow hearing it in my chart gives me much more confidence.  Life Changing!!

MAGICIAN

JANUARY

The Magician is the youthful energy of excitement, passion, and beginner’s luck.  The Magician is a showman and natural people person.  He is here to learn stability, by focusing on his joy and his inner passions, realizing his creative potential.  He is magical and well loved, eventhcugh often he is insecure in his body, and can also lack self-confidence.  With that, there can come an over-excitement that borders of ego, or worse narcissism, where all of the magic disappears into misery and depression.  It is key to always refine yourself and go towards making your dreams come true.  Don’t be afraid to speak in front of a crowd, actually get good at it, and bring your magic and wonder.

MONTH’S INFLUENCE

For this month, on a positive note, you feel stable and confident to express your magic and talents. For business, there can be more opportunities and socializing, to make new deals and generate leads. For love, there can be a spontaneous meeting (especially for male Magicians), with an individual who may be more mature, helping to teach you something new. This chance meeting may even be to begin a family and have a baby. For all of them though, this is a good time to cultivate your creativity, and so its about choosing to be disciplined in joy of expression, whatever that is. Negatively, you may feel a lot of judgment if you are out of alignment, possibly even some shame, guilt, or a lack of empowerment, and privacy. So you need to create space to allow your unique creative talents to express themselves, and find stability in that. Making music or playing music this month can aid this process.

The High Priestess is highly intuitive and connected to the sacred, to the highest spiritual values of Nature’s intelligence and the sacred heart.  The High Priestess is here to bring us into the meditative process of discovering the sacred heart, the secret of the internal world of our Souls.  It is in the sacredness of all things that she exists and finds herself the one that holds the high standards that brings the sacred into our lives, ceremony, and celebration. She is the inspiration, the inspired spirit whispered in our thoughts.  The High Priestess is the way of the sacred, the invisible, and the Holy.

MONTH INFLUENCE

For this month, there’s a push of going external rather and inward, and to really start communicating and inspiring others. It’s a bit uncomfortable because there is a focus on the social expectations, and how to present and conduct yourself. There is a feeling of your feathers being ruffled. You feel the calling of the social world needing you, yet you aren’t quite ready, so there is this feeling of chaos, and a rush to organize your expression out into the world. The positive energy of the month is the ability to express yourself in a new way, a rebirthing, like a diamond made under pressure. While in the negative, the feeling of disorder and discomfort dominates. There will be a desire to flee, to escape, the social pressure that is building and asking for your outward expression. The need for travel exists, but best to stay focus and grounded. Feel it all and come into the inspiration that is generated from the chaos. Transform it, and then express it.

This month is busy with building, structuring, planning, but there is an aspect of going out, and showing yourself physically, just being present in person (rather than mentally or emotionally). Try to stay vulnerable, don’t put the armor on. Stay social, but in a controlled and contained environment. Negatively, you can be dispersed doing too many things.

 MONTH’S INFLUENCE

You’re occupied this month with admin, rebalancing, and bringing order. This is not a moment to go deeply into the inner world and spiritual. It’s about taking care of business, things that require your attention in the material world. There is a spiritual alignment by the equinox, that whatever you have been going through in the winter, begins to carve a new path out, so you have to deal with the administrative things now, in order to have a balance within, and to be ready to communicate in the near future. There will be that pressure to emerge and communicate with the community, soon. Going into nature can be inspiring. Negatively this month, you risk being closed, reserved, and removed, which will bring out your bitterness. It’s kind of a dull month of taking care of responsibilities in time for the next part of the cycle that’s coming.

There is something that inspires your direction in life this month. You may find what it was you were seeking, or at least feel closer to it. Negatively, you have a bit of hard time communicating, finding words, and feeling like you are still seeking, getting closer,  but not quite there. This is an observational month for you to be in space of receiving and feeling new experiences.  Tune into the sensual. Perhaps being able to write what you are going through.

It In it’s darkness, it can be too harsh, protected and stuck in dogmatic and restrictive structures like the army or corporations.  It can be too strict and ambitious.   The Chariot is meant to follow the heart and serve the creative and feminine, and then the heroic nature can arise.

THIS MONTH’S INFLUENCE

You find yourself in an energy where there is a lot going on; traveling, opportunities, changing plans, lots of unpredictable exciting energy. Being open, vulnerable, and ready, is key for you this month. Feeling stable, because basically there is a feeling of being pulled in many directions at once, not being able to see what is fully going on, and this challenging you to find your inner stability.

MONTH’S INFLUENCE

This month you are at service to your community. There is a shift in perception that is happening within you, and you are realizing its not just about you, there is a need to be useful in guiding others.

Your conditioning around love and expectations of relationship,  can be a trap for you, and this month love is definitely all around you, so tune into a higher frequency of your love expression.

MONTH’S INFLUENCE

This month is uncomfortable, your rebirth is intense and accelerated. You aren’t just cleaning your own stuff, but others as well. There can be some turmoil and cutting of relationships. There’s life changing situations occurring – spiritually it is positive, but they may not feel that way in the moment. The tendency is to react, close, up and put armor on and deal with it, the opportunity is to open and feel fully the emotions. A part of you may have to let go, even go through a death, and its definitely related to the ego.

March is an easy month for you, slow and gently. Take care of yourself, follow your pleasures. You may be in movement, but no extreme traveling. You may be inspired to create beauty in the environments around you. It’s about a shift and gentle changing of routines. Negatively, you may remove yourself a little too much, and go into seclusion, but you’re meant to tune into what you are truly seeking, which makes you feel light and beautiful. 

HANGED MAN

DECEMBER

The Hanged Man is a very misunderstood archetype, as it is the one that shifts our perception towards the spiritual, as he walks in surrender to the Devine path.  He is faith, service, love and gratitude all in one.  He has changed his perception form the materialistic viewpoint of life towards a spiritual viewpoint and now he carries gold behind his back, as an illuminated prophet, self-realized as an example to all of us.  Otherwise, it is the betrayed and victim, or the scapegoat for all others, and through the love of service, they ended up doing all the work for everyone.  They are simply generous and hard working.  

MONTH’S INFLUENCE.

This month can either be exciting or intense and charged. It’s magnetic. Awakening your desires and fears. What is it that scares you about your desires? You have to learn to use your will to resist some these, that may create chaos. You may act on your temptations and try to conceal it, but it will probably be revealed. If you are trying to cheat, whether in the workplace or in your relationship, or fall into addictions, you have to call on your wisdom, and discipline to accept that you have the desire, but that it does not always require action upon it. Use it, and channel it as fuel for your creativity, into something constructive.
