I don’t know about you but this past month felt like a discombobulated act of emotional detox, active dreaming, visions for the future, confusion, more visions, and then the inevitable surrendering to the fact that there’s no way to control reality.
A lot happened in the sky to indicate that we are going through a huge purge of the collective wound.
The last new moon of the astrological year took place in Pisces in conjunction with Chiron, the wounded healer, bringing up the residual layers of pain. It has felt like the proverbial peeling of an onion, just when you thought you were done with certain patterns or situations, they showed up again in order to effectuate deeper healing.
The amounts of feelings that came up can be overwhelming, just know that you have what it takes to heal them or they wouldn’t be showing up.
Being gentle and patient with ourselves during such times needs to be the focus if we are to move through it and come out the other side triumphantly.
March 20th was Astrology day and the spring equinox. It was decided a long time ago to use this day to celebrate Astrology in the West.
The Sun crosses the equatorial plain at 0 Aries and starts its ascend on the northern hemisphere. Is this movement that determines the tropical zodiac. So, 0 Aries can feel like a reset of energy and thus is used to mark the beginning of a new astrological year.
That makes the last new moon especially potent when it comes to releasing and healing the past in order to plant new seeds for the future.
Mars had just entered Capricorn on March 17th where it will conjunct Saturn and Pluto. Mars will go out of bounds very soon after entering Capricorn. So, what does that even mean?
A planet that’s out of bounds is a planet that has gone past the solar parental control. An out of control Mars can break havoc on the world. It’s like a testosterone-infused teenager without a male role figure to guide him.
Our current events of bombings and shootings are just one example of this and how things can intensify.
Anger and impulsiveness could take the best of us so take a step back, and make sure you take 10, 20, 100 deep breaths before acting or saying something you might regret later. I’m guilty of this myself ... We are all trying to heal both, the feminine and the masculine within us. We have spent plenty of time focusing on the feminine and it seems like the focus will be shifting on the masculine for now.
So, pay attention to all of those areas where you access a situation in terms of win versus loose, a more cooperative approach will pay dividends at this time. Having said that, it is also important to recognize when it’s necessary to pick up our swords and speak our truth in order to protect what’s right. Finding the right balance between these two requires self-mastery and discernment.
The right expression of the masculine and the feminine is being redefined by us as we go at the moment. This is a huge endeavor for us as spices, so don’t be so hard on yourself for what feels like shortcomings.
Mars will be out of bounds (having crossed the sun’s ecliptic way up north or south) until April 17th. Master your inner warrior whether you are a male, female, or non-gender conformed.
Right after that, Mercury will go retrograde on March 22nd, offering us up an opportunity to look into the nature of our ideas, those that have sprouted and those that are coming up. Which ones will be the foundations of our new reality? Which ones are worth letting go?
At the same time, Venus is ascending as an evening star. She just spent some time in the underworld where she experienced death. As she rises up in the sky until her maximum elongation, she will be reclaiming her power as a goddess, one chakra at a time. This offers us a great opportunity to participate in ceremony to reclaim our own power. (Check out Tami Brunk and Cayelin Castell journey of the Aries goddess at their page www.venusalchemy.com)
Pisces season has left a trail of chaos in my own personal life. I’m trying to pick up the pieces and start over ... I just can’t see where the path leads to yet. There’s tremendous uncertainty and freedom in that. Whatever way my reality ends up looking like, it will be a direct reflection of my capacity to work constructively with these energies and let go of the rest.
Blessings and Happy Journey!!!
