Sun enters Aries 6:45 PM EDT
We all believe in the power of identity. We go to great lengths to be unique, ahead of the pack, our own person. Aries likes this. But it’s not really what Aries is about. It’s about the strength and courage it takes to get born; to break through. We see little baby things such as humans and lambs as cute and helpless for example. But each and every thing that gets born into the manifest world risks everything to do it. We all took that risk and survived. It’s a 7.2 billion people success story. Although, I will say we have strange ways of celebrating…
Mercury sextile Pluto
Think your thoughts through to the end. Ponder and pound them, hammer and shape them, till they find their truth.
Venus sextile Neptune
Sometimes just the image of what you love is enough to make you feel good. There are all kinds of eye candies. But we have other senses as well as vision. Perhaps we could all benefit from a bout of synesthesia.
Sun trine Saturn
All these new -born things are ready to leap and bound. The goal is to develop muscle. Get strong. Plant your new life firmly in reality. Educate and develop the budding new things in your life.
Venus square Jupiter
Nothing exceeds like excess. Or possibly; Moderation in all things, including moderation.
Venus trine Pluto
Mercury enters Aries
If you’ve been excessive now’s your chance to reign it in, eat your losses, turn your good fortune into something of value. Assertive communication is best promoted when there is genuine confidence behind it. If you aren’t in possession of this you might seek out ways to cultivate it.
Mars enters Taurus
There is strength in resistance; when we say ‘no’. Like badger. There is a different kind of strength in presence. When we are present to the moment as it is our actions may seem less powerful than badger but they are also real and true.
Mercury trine Saturn
Sun trine Jupiter
Mercury opposite Jupiter
A good day for intelligent fun. Skill and luck combine; enthusiasm and a fair amount of wisdom do as well. Dare to aim high even as you stand firm.
Lunar Eclipse 14 degrees Libra at 8:05 am EDT
It is a full moon like no other. Which may sound dramatic and ominous to some, but it’s like that for each and every moment. Planetary configurations taken as a whole only repeat one every 24, thousand years or so no one can remember a full moon at 14° Libra that activated Uranus and Pluto, like the one we have today. It’s true that we never step into the same river twice. This full moon shines a spotlight on chaos as well as change. Look for the shoots of new possibility sprouting up through the cracks as they do in early spring. One man’s weed is another woman healing herb. Challenges present themselves in annoying ways. You may just want to turn and walk the other way. Or you may meet them with a sense of assertive justice. There is no better way, simple awareness of the issues is good enough.
Sun square Pluto
Yesterday’s themes continue.
Mercury trine Jupiter
Follow the flame of that which interests you. Passion in the mind can open realities we never dreamed of.
Mercury square Pluto
The passionate mind, like a sleuth of great skill and profound instinct must hone its ideas in the world of circumstance. Making castles in the air or escaping to imaginary worlds does not reveal truth.
Mercury conjunct Uranus
Jupiter stationary Direct
Doors long shut, open to the brilliant light of day. If you aren’t blinded by the light there is much to see. Faith, grounded in knowledge of the heart’s goodness inspires greatness.
Sun conjunct Mercury
A moment of great clarity regarding the “Who am I?” question. Know thyself.as it says at the oracular temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Venus enters Gemini
Amid the relentless barrage of curious, interesting information one can sometimes find grace and beauty, humor and insight: Not to mention some good gossip. That’s what keeps us plugged in. Look for the bits and bytes that have the greatest value for you while Venus transits Gemini. No need to fritter.
Mars sextile Neptune
Cool down the heat generated by too much friction and/or conviction. Look for opportunities to ground the body and connect to the soul. Consider the collective soul; like a reservoir from which we all can drink.
Mercury enters Taurus
Venus opposes Saturn
Some things are irresistible. The idea that you might gather a critical mass of information that could lead you to a greater understanding of the big picture, for example. Tread mindfully amid your revelations and assumptions. Truth is relative.
Pluto stationary retrograde
Perhaps you’ve been feeling the pressure? The sense of deeply entrenched roots being dislodged slowly, inch by intense inch, from the ancient ground in which they sort are so firmly planted? Our emotional reactions to massive change are not nearly as significant as our awareness of the change. Where you are willing to bear witness, power will find its best expression.
Mars square Jupiter
‘Entrenched’, ‘stubborn’, ‘resolute’ meets ‘enthusiastic’, ‘visionary’, ‘creative’. Together they could make a firestorm and blow up their world. Or they could create or strengthen a world that values the expression of a grounded kind of wisdom. The big question is, ‘Creation or destruction?’ Not good or bad. Sometimes we need destruction, when creation is not integrated. Sometimes we need creation especially in the ashes of too much destruction.
New Moon 28 degrees Aries 2:57 p.m. EDT
Be yourself, without apology or excuse. This requires you to deal with shame if you have it. Not to avoid or deny it but to hold it with awareness so you can access the best in yourself. Intentions, rooted in a vision of the nobility of experiencing the life you are living are best made here.
Mercury sextile Neptune
Venus square Neptune
That tricky fish, the one who swallowed the ruby ring, the one who makes promises if you will only throw her back into the water – that fish is on the loose. Promising everything just out of reach as well as activating the imagination. If your soul has a deep longing give it a voice even if you can’t satisfy it. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful that is.
