Theoxenion through Aegletion, 2020
Theoxenion (IV) – March 25-April 23, 2020
Epsilon (Ε), Zeta (Ζ), Omega (Ω)
We are eager for the fruits of our labor to come to full fruition, but we must take care not to be reckless or force them to readiness before the time is right. We seek proportions alliances and are eager for their outcomes, for the road we walk is not always easy. Apollon cautions us to avoid spending our energy when we are unsure of the outcome. All things had their time and we should not urge them to an early conclusion.

Gamma (Γ), Lamda (Λ), Pi (Π)
We have passed through many struggles, but note is the time to set aside the grief that the struggles have left us with and work toward the reward that awaits us. Perseverance grants rewards to those who have struggled. We are encouraged to take time to let our hurts heal so that we can move forward and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Batrachion (VI) – May 23-June 21, 2020
Tau (Τ), Rho (Ρ), Psi (Ψ)
We are encouraged to lay down our burdens for a time. The road is soothing out and it is wise to give ourselves time to rest before beginning our work again. Things are beginning to work in our favor, but we need to be at full strength to move forward. Other voices join with Apollon, encouraging us to rest and tend to our own needs before moving forward with our work.

Delta (Δ), Nu (Ν), Upsilon (Υ)
The way becomes smooth as promised, but we are encouraged to keep an eye out for those who try to turn us from our path. We must take care to weigh our decisions before we make them, as some that may seem expedient at first may cause us distress in the future. We are also encouraged to grow the relationships we already have and not seek new ones during this time.
Karneion (VIII) – July 21-August 19, 2020
Ksi/Xi (Ξ), Mu (Μ), Khi (Χ)
Haste is unnecessary, our work comes to fruition and we can safely press on. The goal we have been striving toward in the last months bears fruit, there is no longer any need to rush toward it. Instead we may take joy in our accomplishments and turn our minds toward our future tasks, knowing that our work is moving into its next phase.

Aegletion (X) – September 18-October 16, 2020
Alpha (Α), Gamma (Γ), Lamda (Λ)
Our work continues, labor bears fruit, and we continue to receive encouragement from Apollon. Our goals are not yet reached but we begin to see blossoms form. Our work brings joy to Apollon and we are encouraged to focus on aspects of the work that bring us joy as well.
