ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… ❤

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 
True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.


As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).

 

‘See you’ next time, in person here in Victoria, online, here on this ‘blog channel’, on my FB Page, or on the email Astro~News!
Next one: for the AR New Moon to the SCO – TAU Full Moon / the Wesak Moon.

Many Blessings for the Liberation Journey!

LIBRA – ARIES Easter Full Moon with ERIS / URANUS, and MARS / SATURN: Liberation and Peace in a Polarized World

30 Mar

Dear Astro~News Readers!

Let’s welcome the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon!

Not only as the March Blue Moon (second one, after March 1), and First Full Moon in Spring, heralding Easter the day after (yes, Easter is a lunar calendar festival, celebrated on the Sunday after the first Spring Full Moon)!
But also, since it brings lots of liberating shifts!

 

Young Hare, by Albrecht Duerer (original at Albertina, Vienna)

 

Surprise – surprise!
An unexpected Archetype’s ‘on board’ of the ARIES activation this month:

Not only URANUS but also ERIS (presently at 23°16’ AR) will be catalyzed by the LI – AR Full Moon (March 31) and by the New Moon in ARIES (Apr 15)!

Eris_Antikensammlung_Berlin

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

A befriended Astro client asked me a few days ago what my take on Eris, Sedna, and other seldomly looked-at and newly discovered Astro Archetypes is.
Which made me realize: 

It’s ERIS season again (yep, not just ARIES season). And, even more so: ERIS has been actually (perhaps overlooked but very effectively) operating for a while in ‘tandem’ with URANUS in ARIES.
Both just come out of that crazy 2 – 3 year alliance mirrored in world events.

Who / what / which Archetype is ERIS, and how does it show up now personally and societally?

ERIS, the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet known in the Solar System, was only discovered in 2005 (one of the reasons why PLUTO was demoted of its Planet status in 2006!), has an eccentric 561(!) year orbit around the SUN (more than twice as long as PLUTO), and has been almost the whole 20th and beginning of the 21st century in ARIES!

Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS (that’s another – personal – story, showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!)

The unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord and strife is seeding separation – which we’ve seen a lot lately in humanity.
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men. At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”

May CHIRON entering ARIES (which is immanent, starting Apr 17 – until Sept 25 2018, and then fully ON from Feb 18, 2019 on until 2026 / 27 when it will meet ERIS) help with healing what makes war possible.

But realistically speaking (says SATURN in CAP now too…), we gotta start from and acknowledge where we’re at.
Has it ever been a period of discord, disruption, and seeding of separation in society over the last 2 years, esp. via the media!
The recently revealed social media scandals of sensitive private data being harvested and exploited to split the population by manipulatively feeding them back ‘news’ and intensifying what they believe in or side with in a way that could have tipped the scales for the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, and the Brexit referendum.
A prime example of large scale collective seeding of discord and separation.
Plus the huge trend of ‘disruptive technology’ which can be abused in so many ways…

As well as the crazy making U. S – North Korea conflict, scandalous school shootings in the U.S. and the heated gun control debate, and the Catalan call for independence (URANUS and ERIS have been on Barcelona’s ARIES SUN and not far from Spain’s MOON in the last years (Check out my astrological Catalunya Independence blog post) are all prime examples of ERIS at work – together with URANUS.

 

Uranian Liberation & Promethean Mercury Lead ON.

Prometheus – the Archetype of Uranus – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

The Archetype of URANUS the Awakener (shocking and rude awakenings, in this case) reflects not only (or at least not always immediately) liberation but also disruption, distortion, trauma, and in combination with ERIS (which happens once in a century only) has been highly explosive and discordant. Esp. since both are also in assertive ARIES.

May the shocking revelations (JUPITER in SCO certainly helps with that) that are coming through now lead to freedom of humanity on a higher and more conscious level!

Good to know: URANUS has now passed ERIS (their ‘hottest’ years were 2016 / 2017).
So, my sense is the shocking discordance producing scenarios might integrate, as (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity continues. People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle, based on being set up against each other anymore.

ERIS in ARIES is a strong Full Moon (March 31) and New Moon (Apr 15) catalyst.
See the Full Moon chart below.
Bringing the ERIS / URANUS low grade manifestation to the bright light of SOLAR Consciousness (the SUN is very strong in ARIES) IS a game (or rather: out-of-game) changer. Waking Up from being set up to fight / war  against ‘the other’ brings  for true URANIAN Liberation.

 

MERCURY in ARIES at the retro mid-point, connecting with the SUN on Apr 1 = Day of Enlightened Insight (for more about the whole M-r phase check out the blog post).

This certainly helps also with breakthroughs, aha effects, paradigm shifts, and mental liberation from the agitating ‘war on mind’ / mind at war with itself, and for a fresh approach.
With the MERCURY – SUN Enlightening Insight contact, a ‘New MERCURY’ (like a New Moon) is born, and the SUN (Consciousness, Spirit) is leading now, while the MERCURY (Mind) follows. This is the ‘Promethean’ phase of M-r. Prometheus is the URANUS Archetype. A liberating force. Forward-thinking, out-of the-
mind-matrix, etc.

“What and how do you Choose now newly?” asks the LIBRA FULL MOON, opposite the ARIES frenzy, and: “What brings Balance and PEACE in a Polarized World”?

 

MARS in CAP Passes Stationary (retro on Apr 17) SATURN:
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control.
Moving forward, in Integrity and Inner Authority.

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

The LI – AR Full Moon links up in a sharp ‘T-Square’ with stationary SATURN (about to go retro, on Apr 17) and MARS. Now that’s quite the charge!

MARS and SATURN are the ‘outlet’ of that intense dynamic. Both strong in CAP. At best a momentum in Integrity and intrinsic Authority.

With the last New Moon, March 17, MARS, Ruler of ARIES, entered CAP – its ‘best’ position in the Zodiac (lots of energy to ‘move mountains’, and a push to persevere – in integrity), and will be in the Mountain Goat sign for a long time (basically until mid-Sept)
For more details, check out my MARS-in-CAP blog post.

Now MARS will pass SATURN (exact on Apr 2) – that’s big news, and the last massive shift catalyzed by the Full Moon!
Moving past serious authority challenges and obstacles, control, fears and resistances.
May Integrity lead the way!
And as SATURN will go retro on Apr 17 (for the first time since it entered CAP last Dec), we once again learn the lesson that true authority lays within.

Next up for MARS: A contact with LILITH, on Apr 19:
Our True Nature can’t be corrupted or controlled. Let’s move on and up from that place.

 

Here’s the chart of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon with URANUS and ERIS in AR, in T-Square to MARS – SATURN:

MARS into CAPRICORN (March 17 – May 15, plus Aug 12 – Sept 10): Gett’n Stuff Done. Integrity in Action & (RE)Builder Energy

17 Mar

We’ve come a long way, with MARS moving (us) through SAG, since Jan 26! Hope you had a motivating time, and Spirit called you to follow your Heart! And that your SAG themes got activated the right way.

Today, March 17, just 6 1/2 hrs after the New Moon, the energetic Warrior Archetype and ruling Planet of ARIES (which is so fresh and ‘hot’ these days) moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP where we’re called to DO what we said, follow up on those high-flying visions and promises, do the work, and build what matters and lasts.

Vibrant Country Goat

A solid energy that holds everyone accountable, AND helps us to get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
And CAP doesn’t like waste of time and energy.

Time to get going with those long awaited Spring projects, and hey, we got the energy and motivation now (no more excuse, ha-ha).

MARS is considered ‘exalted’ in CAP (top position for MARS in the Zodiac) – think mountaineer or marathon runner, and builder… sustainable energy to reach a goal.
Let’s USE (yay, a buzz word for CAP) the time and energy as it’s available.
Plain and simple, actually.
CAP likes simplicity, and sticking to priorities.

What does that mean for the CAP sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Capricornian, in terms of accomplishing and completing (yay! finishing!) what they’re set out to do. DO it, says MARS, you got the energy now… yet slowly, consistently, not over night or ‘in the moment’ (as ARIES would have it – do I hear MERCURY going retro in AR next week?!). 
Where CAP is in your chart (either via Planets, SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or in any case the House/s CAP lives in) gets an energy boost.

Let’s check that out and direct it in a good way, in a private session if you like. 
You can use (did I say USE?) the Flash Focus Sessions for that (see below).

Getting things done – woohoo! MARS in CAP rocks!

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in CAPRICORN 2018?
March 17 – May 15 + Aug 15 – Sept 10

And hey – why does MARS ‘come back’ to CAP for 4 weeks in Aug / Sept?
Bingo! MARS will go retro this year (every 2 years) from early AQ, touching back into CAP from which it will go direct on Aug 27).

Re: the dates given below: The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes. The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

MARCH 17: 

MARS entered CAP – Lead ON!
Moving forward with vigor and integrity.

APR 2:
MARS passes stationary (going retro Apr 17) SATURN in CAP.
Overcoming old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal control, and moving UP, one step at a time.

APR 4 / 5:
MERCURY retro in AR squares MARS / SATURN stat. in CAP.
Don’t get discouraged by the ego mind and its quick reactions. Hopefully a breakthrough already occurred, and Consciousness leads. Excellent energy for planning and following through – from 
the Heart.

APR 10:
VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with MARS in CAP.
Rock Solid Love. And a great time for gardening too 🙂

APR 14:
MARS in CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in PI.
Great time for work flow. And to connect with the compassionate WHY you’re moving mountains and taking on projects.

APR 19:
MARS passes LILITH in CAP.
Be wild, earthy, and sexy. Let your inner wildness lead the way.
Uhh, and the SUN enters sensual earthy TAU that day too….
And hey, this can also mobilize women in / towards / against status-quo leadership.

APR 23:
MARS in CAP in sextile with JUPITER retro in SCO.
Looots of energy – not just for Spring cleaning and purging. Also for revealing for what’s been 
covered(-up).

APR 26:
MARS in CAP passes stationary / retro PLUTO (will go retro Apr 22).
Whoooaa – Power House energy.
Transforming anger into productive work?
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Moving Mountains? Doing the Soul Work.
Transforming societal structures.

MAY 12:
MERCURY in AR (direct again) squares MARS in CAP.
Big Projects can be done, with the right mind set. Rather than being antagonistic, reactionary and in resistance work FOR something.

MAY 15:
MARS enters AQ where it goes retro from JUNE 26 on.
Coming to the end of what YOU can do?
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.

JUNE 26:
MARS goes retro at 9°13′ AQ (until Aug 27 – back into CAP on Aug 15)

Back-tracking what works with collaboration, and where (old) competition and conflict arise.
Re-configuring the Inner / Outer / Societal Masculine.
What’s the Role of the Masculine in the Future of Humanity?

More about MARS retro:
Astro~News Blog post to come, closer to the time.

AUG 15 – SEPT 10:
MARS  back in CAP, going retro-to-direct for 4 weeks.
RE-trieving what we’re best at, and can contribute, from our level of experience, maturity, and responsibility.
What motivates YOU to accomplish something that really matters?
What sustains your energy (that you might have forgotten about)?

AUG 27:
MARS goes direct at 28°37′ CAP.
Lots of motivation, drive, and energy – esp. for your late CAP themes.

SEPT 10:
MARS finally passes over the ‘Community Building Point’ into AQ.
Collaboration is Key.

 

May we all USE and work with the time and energy of MARS in CAP for the highest purpose! 

 

Getting into the groove of what MARS now in CAP activates for you can be supported in an Astro session – and the Flash Focus Sessions offer (44 min for only $ 44 – March 22 – Apr 4) can be certainly purposed for this.

 


44 min Flash Focus sessions are coming up – for only $ 44!
(Not only) to kick off M-r in ARIES (March 22 – Apr 4)

MARS in GEMINI (Apr 21 – June 4) & MERCURY Retro with URANUS in ARIES (Apr 28): Idea Explosion…

22 Apr

So. Here it is.
Bold MARS just entered GEMINI yesterday Fri Apr 21, and is now flying through the ‘lightest’ Zodiac vibration until June 4!
Already met two friends with VENUS in GEMINI yesterday – such dynamic dances of ideas and conversations, and invigorating visit / outing in the Land of Spring – nice initiation for MARS’s journey.

 

Bright Freshness – Photo by Melanie, Apr 21 2017

 

Not only is MARS now in GEMINI, also the GEMINI Ruler MERCURY is now retro, and since Thu back in ARIES, which in turn is ruled by MARS (a double-whammy, a.k.a. ‘mutual reception’) – AND: MERCURY retro in ARIES will trigger URANUS (second of 3 times) on Apr 28: Chances for radical paradigm shifts – it was all in the HEAD – let’s set ourselves FREE! Experimentation, no expectations…

Obviously, this gives the whole atmosphere a MERCURY / MARS and ARIES / GEMINI flavour:
New (AR) ideas, contacts, interests, learning, conversations (GEM).
Stirred up / provoked / stimulated / sharp (MARS) thoughts (MERCURY).
Aggressive / assertive / animated / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.

 

The Two and the Many – Photo by Melanie, Apr 21, 2017

 

So let’s channel the energy into fresh, bold, youthful curiosity, and the desire to learn!
And physical activity (MARS) like cycling (so GEMINI) – well: Fairies would just fly….
Loved what a friend said this morning: “When you walk or cycle the ‘idea fairies’ can be with you.” So true, new ideas come to me when moving in nature w/o motor involved.

Well, ideas can become explosive now, as MERCURY retro will approach URANUS (Apr 28 and May 9): What would be a radically different way of approaching… (anything)?…

The MARS in GEMINI energy boost is fabulous for all your GEMINI planets, Ascendant, SUN and MOON. Just watch not to get too distracted, and scattered into tooo many directions! 

 

MARS makes several straight-up contacts with other ‘cosmic players’, while in GEM:

Right at the onset of MARS in GEMINI – this Earth Day weekend, MARS in early GEM squares the Nodal Axis, with the Lunar South Node on the PI / AQ cusp, and the North Node on the VIR / LEO cusp:
Rather than getting stressed out over sooo many pulls and interests (sorta ADD), yet incapable of ‘doing it all’ (maybe bi-locating / cloning yourself is the solution?) let’s channel this super-charged energy into diving into community, and being lovingly connected with friends – as ‘we’re all in this together’ – , co-generate good vibrations (PI / AQ), while knowing what works for us, and how we operate best to be creative, and offer our ‘specialty’ (VIR / LEO) – and: express your thoughts and ideas, discuss, ask, TALK! (MARS in GEM / MERCURY retro in AR) – maybe in a way you haven’t ‘dared to’ in a looong time.

Things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring!
Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our loving intentions FREE!
(wings but no strings attached)

Next up:
MARS will oppose LILITH in SAG on May 3 (which is also the day when MERCURY goes out of retro):
Be true to your inner nature and your path, and let them know (doesn’t have to turn into an argument – watch your tongue). Sooo many avenues. Also a great vibe for explorations and adventures that involve learning and the outdoors (take it easy on traffic, in the MERCURY turnaround ‘storm’).

 

MARS will trine JUPITER retro in LIBRA on May 12.
SO much energy, motivation, and vitality can come from this combo if they combine their gifts – in this case in the AIR element: Learning, relating, communicating – new connections for ‘good matches’ can be made. Dare to ask, and discuss! And: Don’t just be in your head, go out and DO something together! See how that goes and fits!

 

Finally, in the GEM journey, MARS will oppose SATURN retro in SAG (in the Galactic Centre), on May 28.
Be FREE to move in your ways, and chart your course – doesn’t have to be what you ‘should’ do or where you ‘should be’ (drop ‘should’ – that conditioned moral imperative if it’s not congruent with your HEART).
There’s no absolute right, many paths to, and in fact IN Truth and Freedom!

Wishing you a Vibrant, Inspired Flight through Spring, with MARS in GEMINI!
