Happy Spring Equinox Rebirth of the Sun
We are aligned with the change of seasons and astrology has a sacred connection to the seasons. With Aries ingress, Spring, it tells us of the coming year, villagers would wait for their Shaman, Sage, Seer, Star person to speak on what is seen in the Sky.
We celebrate at this significant time, our yearly cosmic RE-Birth, we re-align ourselves with what is ahead and what the heavens tell us.
With Venus Retrograde at this Spring Equinox (last occurred in 2009 and 2001), the Sumerians and Babylonians who especially followed the Venus Cycle, considered it a critical omen for the year ahead!
1. The Sun at this time is flanked by Venus, an activated Warrior Goddess on a mission. Venus wants to take action, moving beyond fears, restrictions, limitations, stepping out of the comfort zone. This is significant for the Spring Equinox. She (in males as well as females) GIVES GENEROUSLY, CONFIDENTLY, from a heartfelt place of Self-Love – without withholding or judgment AND obsession with herself!!
A SPIRITED FIREY YEAR for the feminine. Leadership, passion, active LOVE, CREATION.
With Venus retrograde at this time, the challenge is to RE-ALIGN:
CREATE: Use symbolism and images.
Then, believe in yourself and what your future holds for you.
As VENUS begins her Warrior expression, MARS (the activating, desiring planet in all of us) is grounded in earth (Taurus), where its actions are deliberate and hard at work, creating tools to get the work done, but also to enjoy the sensuousness of life. We are called to CREATE, to get the work done, to create what is needed, to be useful and practical. Get your hands dirty if necessary (baking, driving, cooking, gardening, etc.). This is a year where it is necessary to experience some “grind, sweat and muscle”.
2. The other major signature at this Equinox, is the fact that the MOON and SATURN are located at the GALACTIC CENTRE. (The Galactic Center is the rotational center of the Milky Way. The estimates for its location range from 7.6 to 8.7 kiloparsecs from Earth in the direction of the constellations Sagittarius, Ophiuchus, and Scorpius where the Milky Way appears brightest. There is strong evidence consistent with the existence of a supermassive black hole at the Galactic Centre).
FATHER TIME MEETS GALACTIC MOTHER WOMB, the Black Hole that birthed our galaxy! A TRUE symbol of CREATION!
The symbolic meaning and significance of this has been considered and I will summarize:
– it gives DETERMINATION for the year
– we are leaving the old paradigm behind
– this is a year to be “mind blown”
– open ourselves to MORE THAN WE THINK
– pushes us to be in control, know our limits, yet be ignited by the most possible of MISSIONS.
– IGNITE change, strategizing, riding the wave, and trust where waters will take us
3. There is what is called a Piscean Stellium (collection of planets) and an Aries Stellium at this time. The Pisces stellium experienced the LAST eclipse for 18 years just in February 2017. On April 6, Venus will go back into pisces, already risen for a review, possibly of any hurts, grief, loss we may have experienced this winter (january/february), one last time, feeling’ it. STICK TO WHAT YOU VALUE, KNOW, and BELIEVE IN. An adjustment has taken place. All pain, understood as suffering, is healed. Pisces energy sees behind things (bring forth the veils of illusion, in art or music) and is super sensitive and compassionate. Again, make art, act on areas of hurt, injustice. This is the year for that!
With the Aries Stellium, as it involves the Goddess of Discord (ERIS) along with the AGENT for Change (awareness and awakening – URANUS), expect CHAOS (like last year), until the beginning of 2018. These 2 together are co-creating the unexpected. This is an unpredictable and radical combination.
They were last together in 1928 – different times, but they gave rise to fascism, economic collapse and the beginning of the great depression. NOT THAT IT WILL BE THE SAME, but we must keep alert for signs of this, in different forms.
4. ?Personal Influences – BE PREPARED FOR SURPRISES!
Remember that from the primordial chaos arose EROS, the
creative essence of the universe and from CHAOS, a new order is born.
Thankfully, pushing past limits imposed by ourselves, is not only KEY to our personal and global survival but has a strong possibility of success for ourselves. There is much grounded creativity to be found in chaos and change!
We need to take it to the next level, and play our role.
Blessings to all on this Spring Equinox, the beginning/the Birth of a our Solar Year.
