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.
