March 2012 New Moon * Aries 2.22 / March 22nd

“Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.” —African Proverb

The tables are now turned. Welcome to the days of talking lions and vegetarianism. Such is the nature of Uranus – the best way to describe Uranus is: expect the unexpected. Truly, the aspects for this lunation are quite astounding. The Moon joins Mercury at 4:50 AM (this on the heels of a Sun/Mercury conjunction Wednesday). Then, luna meets Uranus at 11:36 AM on Thursday the 22nd, and then she squares Pluto in the evening hours.

The Sabian Symbol message for the Moon/Uranus degree (5 Aries)  of March 22nd which is followed closely by a  Sun/Uranus conjunction of March 24th   refers to a flying Yantra, and is a message of devotion, or bhakti; a practice of developing a personal relationship with the Divine. The wings elevate us to a new level of evolution, and the new dimension is mobilized. Yantra is the Sanskrit word for “instrument” or “machine, and it is used in Eastern mysticism to balance the mind, or focus it on spiritual concepts. The act of wearing or concentrating on a Yantra is held to have spiritual, astrological or magical benefits.

This powerful connection with Uranus and Mercury is an invitation to embrace personal change, but it’s also a signal that we now move ahead with catalytic social conversions for all of the earth. I am confident that this is a change for the better. Many events are unfolding that will bring about a positive transformation to our lives. Truly, old contracts have ended, and new ones are now to be fulfilled.

Mercury, now retrograde, is actually quite capable of granting good advice. Actions taken on or around the 21st will most likely have been carefully considered and planned. And, it may take time, but you probably have a solid plan in place.  As he goes backward for a while, Mercury does re-enter Pisces from March 23 to April 17th – OK – this is like the root canal stage. (Sorry – it’s going to get better.) Expect some solid news by April 22nd (there’s that 22 again) when Mercury again joins Uranus.

With Jupiter and Venus standing by in grounded Taurus, this Mercury retrograde can be more about doing and less about running wild. Remember, the New Moon is about beginnings and initiation. Aries inspires us to channel courage. You have come so far, and now you must take it just one step beyond. Uranus exposes secrets, but, the secret to working with Uranus is expression and creativity. The stability of the Yantra actually provides a tool to maintain a grounded and productive state.

Wising you the freedom and strength to give flight to your fondest dreams.

What’s Going On * Equinox 2012 * A Time of Truth and Balance

The Equinox brings us to a point of balance and creation with the forces of Light. Image courtesy Daniel B. Holeman

Late in the evening on Monday, (10:15 PDT) the earth shifted into a delicate reorientation; the annual Vernal, or Spring Equinox.  Our days now  become longer and we emerge into the activities that will bring us to a time of harvest.

The lay of the land for Equinox 2012 unveils the Pisces moon conjunct Neptune; look at this connection as the world of secrets. This Moon/Neptune blend sits behind the Aries Sun – a repository of all that remains unsaid, and that which must be revealed. Many, but not all secrets will unfold with the New Moon of Thursday. However, the presence of Uranus and Mercury in this dynamic will deliver us into undeniable shifts. The old order is now in the midst of an ultimate high tide, and the new world is rapidly moving into manifestation.

The Spring Equinox is celebrated by many traditions around the world. This sacred time has been given many names and been associated with many different activities. Ostara is a modern neopagan festival loosely based on several holidays which were celebrated around the spring equinox. Egg hunts and the Easter bunny are ancient symbols of the fertility associated with Ostara. As told through the story of Mother Gaia and her son, Ouranos, (aka Uranus) the festival Ostara is characterized by the rejoining of the Mother Goddess and her lover-consort-son, who spent the winter months in death. Read more HERE.

The Vernal Equinox is also commemorated as the day when the Goddess Demeter is reunited with her daughter, Persephone; thus begins the joy of Demeter as we enter into a season of fertility. Other variations include the young god regaining strength in his youth after being born at Yule, and the goddess returning to her maiden aspect.

As the Sun, Moon, and Mercury all rise to join Uranus during the week, know that this is your calling card for change. Some of the changes will arrive on cue, and others will sneak into your consciousness – and then your life. The keyword for Uranus is – Catalyst. Think of a lightning storm over water – listen to the thunder, feel the rain, and open to the calling for change that is coming into your life.

As we shift into the age of equality and truth, I honor all traditions and cultures. As the tropical zodiac enters into the sign of Aries, this is the time of our astrological New Year. For all beliefs and lands, it is a time of new beginnings, and a time and day to celebrate the joy and warmth of the Sun.  Remember,  old contracts have been fulfilled, and we are truly on the cutting edge of a new era; an age of personal empowerment and freedom is coming your way.

If you want to know how the amazing planetary energies of the Aries New Moon will influence your life, schedule your personal reading HERE.

Wishing you smooth sailing in the year ahead. We are all in this one together, and it's going to be really good!

What’s Going On * March 16 – 22 * Into the Mystic

Mercury is retrograde until April 4th. Now is the perfect time to breath new life into old projects.

Welcome to the Age of Practical Mysticism!

As we enter into the upcoming Spring Equinox (Monday the 19th) and the Aries New Moon (Thursday the 22nd) I invite you to celebrate the exquisite life that is your promise. Old contracts have been fulfilled, and we are truly on the cutting edge of a new era; an age of personal empowerment and freedom is coming your way.

The Capricorn moon of Friday the 16th forms a lovely trine to Venus in the early morning hours. Although Capricorn can be stern, it is also an excellent sign and time for getting organized. As we enter the balsamic lunar phase, there is a clear message to take care of loose ends.

Sunday the 18th delivers another dynamic Mercury/Uranus conjunction – the 2nd of 3 which occur between early March and April 22nd. As this one manifests in the midst of a full blown Mercury Retrograde time period – examine promises that you made in the past, and think of how and when you reconcile your dues. Ideally, by April 22nd, (which is also Earth Day) the date of the 3rd Mercury/Uranus conjunction,  you will have released old obligations and even spiritual contracts. Mercury will have cleared the shadow of his most recent retrograde, and we are free to move ahead within the auspices of a gentle Taurus sun and moon.

Monday, the 19th, the earth arrives at a subtle point of balance, known as the Vernal Equinox. Each year, the Vernal, or Spring Equinox delivers us to a cosmic re-set point. This day signals the beginning degree of the tropical zodiac, 0 degrees Aries – and, wonderful people, it’s all an open field from here on out.

The word equinox actually means equal day and night; and we now leave the short days and long nights of winter behind and move into the cycle of long days and short nights.  Truly this year, March came in like a Lion, and is going out like a – RAM.

As the Sun, Moon, and Mercury all rise to join Uranus during the week, know that this is your calling card for change. Some of the changes will arrive on cue, and others will sneak into your consciousness – and then your life. The keyword for Uranus is – Catalyst. Think of a lightning storm over water – listen to the thunder, feel the rain, and open to the calling for change that is coming into your life.

Tuesday the 20th, the Pisces moon engages Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter. In keeping with the recent positive grand earth trine, this is a great day to reach out and connect with friends and social contacts.

Wednesday the 21st, Mercury dives into the heart of the Sun! On this day, think before you take action, and then – think again. This transit is noted for making decisions that you wish you hadn’t made – need I say more? Oh, I will remind you – Mercury is retrograde, too.

The New moon arrives on Thursday the 22nd at 7:37 AM eastern time. Here is your joy. This is a high powered celestial event, complete with cosmic bells and whistles, and even a parade. Think New Year – and fresh new beginnings. More to come. For details on the Aries New Moon, subscribe to my newsletter. And, if you want to know how the amazing planetary energies of the Aries New Moon will influence your life, schedule your personal reading HERE.

Wishing you smooth sailing on your path Into the Mystic. We are all in this one together, and it's going to be really good!

What’s Going On * March 13 and 14 * Circle of Manifestation

We are in the birth of a beneficial new reality. Some doors may close, but others will open wide.

Jupiter and Venus conjunct in Taurus; Pluto in Capricorn; Mars in Taurus

Look into the western sky at sunset this evening, and you will be rewarded with a vision that speaks to  your future through the vibrant light of Jupiter and Venus. Jupiter is lower in the sky; with a pair of binoculars or even a camera lens attachment, you can even see the moons of Jupiter! (Did you know that Jupiter has 66 MOONS?) Of course, you cannot see them all, but you may see the largest one, Ganymede, which is the 9th largest object in our solar system.

Jupiter and Venus are exactly conjunct tonight, Tuesday March 13th at 10:54PM Pacific time.  As Venus now joins Jupiter, he leaves his time of exile in the early degrees of Taurus. The friends now can engage in action; and meeting in grounded earth sign, they are ready to get the job done.  What makes this meeting so dynamic is that they form a  trine of ease and flow with Mars in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn. This grand trine all moves into exact form during the day on Wednesday, the 14th.

What does it mean? As one door closes another door opens. Expect a shift in your world order.
(want to know how this event influences your life?)  Schedule your reading HERE

The secret here is: trines predict ease and flow by nature, but, it is easy now to also let go of things that have been not working quite right. However, the beneficial trine also promises that any changes initiated at this time will bring a positive outcome. And, the things that do not have to transform will solidify and prosper.

Let’s break these planets down by nature. Jupiter is the big boss planet. As the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter rules growth, expansion, (as well as over growth and over-expansion.) Another key word for Jupiter is’ authority’. In short, Jupiter likes to call the shots, and he will say either ‘yes’, or, ‘no’. As Venus aligns with Jupiter, however, he is much more inclined to show his benefactor face and answer all questions with a courtly affirmative.

Pluto is another major player in this line up. Pluto asks ‘what price are you willing to pay?’ As the ruler of world government, oil, and underground deal making, Pluto is an undeniable power broker. He gives, but he often exacts a tithe. Pluto rules the ultimate processes of transformation and purification.   In this instance, however, Jupiter and Venus are pleasing to him. He feels safe, and humored. Yes, even Pluto can be coaxed into cooperation.

And, finally, Mars in Virgo rounds out this circle of manifestation. As an energized, Mars provides the jet fuel to get things going. In Virgo, Mars is systematic as well as thorough; and being retrograde, he is now intent on repairing systems that have been broken. This includes your internal wiring! Do you feel like you are being cosmically repaired? The planetary’ fix it’ team is working on you at this very moment.

There is much more to say. Look for upcoming posts on Mercury retrograde, and the Ultimate New Moon coming on March 22nd.

Trust – always – that you are being rewired for a divine life. Know – now – that you are meant to be free.  Hold on – for the ride of a lifetime.
