Happy Spring!! Like the forecast, the cosmic weather is also heating up! The Sun moves into fiery Aries, calling us to proceed directly with renewed vigor and assertion. The big astrological news on the personal front is a renewal of relationships. The Aries Sun travels with Juno and Uranus in Aries, while Venus resides in Aquarius. Juno is an asteroid, an energy pertaining to sexuality and intimate connection. It is getting awakened by Uranus, which wants breakthroughs and new beginnings in Aries. Venus in Aquarius also invites us to broaden our contacts, to reinvent our social lives and relationship patterns. So, the inward winter now gives way to spring fever!
HOWEVER, the issue is clarifying what we really want. Mars is retrograde in Libra, an internal inventory to clarify personal desires around relating. Saturn is retrograde in Scorpio bringing the theme of maturity and depth to areas of bonding and sexuality. Taken together, the astrology is ideal to create newfound relationships that reflect our authentic self. Furthermore, with Jupiter now moving forward in Cancer, it’s best to lead from the the purity and clarity of heart. I believe the current astrology is asking us, “who would you be, and what could happen, if you lead from love and didn’t settle for less?”
The Uranus/Pluto square is rapidly applying for yet another exact hit next month. This has both personal and collective relevance. Political Jupiter is right in the mix from one side, while feisty Mars is retrograde and applying from the other to make a most vexing Grand Cross. Conflict is likely, which can be productive…realistically, unconsciousness around force or selfishness will have to be dealt with. The broader spiritual question being asked nowadays is whether we hunker down in separation consciousness (Aries South Node) and see the world as threatening, or only in service, to number 1; or if we can refresh our perspective to recognize the self in each other (Libra North Node)? Are we going to lead with self-interests, or do we actually become supported when we reach out to assist others?
Mercury is in Pisces conjunct Neptune, perfect for us to cleanse the doors of perception and see the phenomenal dreamlike nature of existence. What if we really are existing in the externalization of our consciousness, creating a fantastic subjective “movie” that we direct and also star in? All sorts of intuitive and inspirational thoughts, sensations and knowings are available now – best to make room for them through stillness or contemplation.
The current astrology is intense! Just know that we are in a pronounced growth spurt right now. All of it is designed to assist us in embodying our more awakened selves. With a focus on heartfelt authenticity, new connections, and bridging separation tendencies, we can truly learn to come together in joint purpose and make this world more conscious. The challenges on the way to that promise are also what we’ll witness and work through. Blessings to you at this time of renewal…spring forward!
