March 18-24, 2013 is the first week of spring. Praise be to the newness. You too can take great big leaps in new directions now. The stars are aligned. Mercury, the planet that influences our communications, is finally moving forward with ease.
Mercury is released from the back tracking of the last three weeks. You may suddenly find yourself motivated and clear rather than fuzzy and tired. Expect communications to go more smoothly. Even if it is just that you find the motivation to be proactive, taking steps towards your desired outcome is easy now. Mercury has had a tough time in Pisces. Mercury likes things a little lighter, but Pisces keeps it real in more surreal ways. Keep your magical glasses on until April 13th, which is when Mercury finally leaves Pisces, for super active Aries. Though we can make tangible forward progress we need to take it slow and easy while we settle into the new pace of things.
March 20, 2013 is the Vernal Equinox, The Sun enters Aries the first sign of the Zodiac. This is the astrological new year. To get a flavor for the year ahead astrologers look to the chart for this day.
A noticeable blessing is occurring with a trine between planets in water. Saturn, the taskmaster is assisting visionary Neptune in communicating in someway. This is a lovely energy to help stabilize your visions for yourself. Now you can mobilize your inner discipline. You can do what needs doing to get where you choose to go. There is an innate ease amidst the hard work and focus. Saturn rewards discipline. The sweet reward of inner security and trust in your own ability. Hard work pays meaningful dividends. You just want to be sure that you are working hard for the right cause.
Another main theme in this Equinox chart includes the emotional moon, purging Pluto, rebel change maker Uranus, and action oriented Mars. This is a stressful square configuration, a friction causing aspect. You won't be able to contain the need to change any longer. Pluto demands that we go there. We have to get to the root of things, face our fears, and move through it. Uranus is putting enough pressure to remind us how deeply we desire our freedom. Change is the only thing that can be counted on.
Take time this Equinox to get centered. What is it you want? Are you swimming towards or away from what you want? Or just treading water? You can expect to relax into some deep inner restructuring this year. Though change itself is stressful, and there is a learning curve to all new states, we are only living when in a state of transformation, evolving into the grandest version of ourselves. This Equinox looks good for down deep drastic changes. And while we are changing we are soothed by the movement in the direction of our true hearts desires.
Friday provides us with a fiery start to this new season. Mars and Uranus share space in the sky. This is an electric volatile energy. Made even more so by the moon in dramatic Leo. Be cautious and as thoughtful as possible Friday. Don't rush or overload electrical sockets. Follow any hunches as this is often your Higher Self, or Guardian Angels steering you clear of a mishap. We are all protected. Just be sure to call on that protection and seal yourself safely in a ball of brilliant light.
This is certainly going to be a notable week. We are shifting to a much more liberating energy, a relief after this foggy last few weeks. Support your body through the change in season by eating a lot of leafy greens. This helps to fortify your liver while you detox the sludge of winter from your cells. Sunshine, rest and proper nourishment will bolster your immune system and assist in any regeneration necessary to bring your body back into balance. Go with the flow and project peace in all directions. Good quality rest and inner vision will inspire you to your next best life scenario. Let enthusiasm be your guide.
