As the days lengthen and things begin to thaw out (at least some places) in the Northern hemisphere, we begin to feel the water element stirring in the Earth. The final week of the Sun in Aquarius shows us how much we truly rely on one another to survive the cold of winter. Relationships are receiving upgrades, Mercury is in mystical Pisces joining with the sacred fires of Vesta and no matter how superficial this world breeds us to be, we still feel sacredness. We stare into the hearth of our hearts and find dancing colors upon a tapestry of life. There are demons and monsters, there is gold waiting to be claimed. That which it is, depends solely on that which you place your focus.
This week, the masculine (via Mars) is electrified by Uranus, while the Feminine is grounded and honored by Saturn. This can evolve through gender relations, but ultimately the masculine and feminine within us all are being activated in major and perhaps very different ways. The masculine is asked to transform while the feminine is concretized in some way. Mercury is in Pisces seeks to devote itself to the mystical path of oneness, understanding through paradox and symbolic measure. Regardless of outside influence, only you can decide what each symbol means to you.
Mars gets a wake-up call when he meets with Uranus late Tuesday/ early Monday. This is a chance to rapidly evolve the masculine, if we have the courage to meet the moment with new awareness. Let Ego rest. Rise don’t resist. Sun sextile Uranus on Monday the 18th says let your light shine for the sake of all, not just your personal glory. Still, honor the personal truth that you have been working to evolve and get in touch with. Now it is revealed how the brilliance that we have discovered inside can serve in the awakening of all. We each hold a golden grain of sand that when joined with others’, eventually grows into a crystal of illumination. Hold yours up for others to see, it just might give another the inspiration to do the same.
Mars enters Taurus Thursday the 14th, and gets to ground down into pleasure and beauty for a while after his growth spurt/lightning strike upgrade. Moving with steadiness and reliability, try and embrace each task you must accomplish with some grace and ease. Give yourself some time for self-love and pampering. Seek to touch the present moment more deeply. How fully can you drop into each moment? Can you find the beauty lurking behind every action? Can you slow your roll and truly enjoy what you are doing? There’s always a lot to do, why not find some pleasure in it?
The loving of the Heart is activated as Venus sextiles Neptune on Sunday the 17th, softening boundaries, receiving inspiration and having the power to ground that into organized action. Make art, be creative and sing songs of the heart. She then meets with Saturn on Monday, an aspect that can solidify the honor and respect for that which we value. The feminine is honored, and that which does not honor her is blocked. Another way to say this is our receptive nature is honored, for it is an act of giving to receive as well. Honor yours through listening to the wisdom of your heart. Give love, receive love, and be clear on which relationships are built to last.
Chiron enters Aries Monday the 18th, signifying a graduation 6 years in the making of seeking to heal our deepest primordial wounds surrounding our relationship to Spirit. What do you believe? How has your faith shifted since 2010-2011? Compare what you believed in then, with what you believe in now. Perhaps your approach to faith in general has matured. Perhaps you have begun a journey to rewrite your personal cosmology. When we find the courage to face our fears and our pain with the cultivation of faith, we glean something no one can take from us, something more precious than gold, wisdom as true strength. Reflect on what you have been healing in the house containing Pisces for the pat 6 years. Let it reach a point of closure. It has been cosmic and mystical, and it holds medicine that only you can transmit.
Entering Pisces season with a Full Moon next week will take us into a time to embrace our spiritual practices, open our hearts and remember all-one consciousness with solar-fire. A powerful time to remember the creative power of the imagination, especially after Chiron leaves this sign with new insights. We have all earned some golden wisdom from the primordial waters of Pisces, now the Sun comes to illuminate. More to come on Pisces season and the Full Moon next Tuesday.
Blessings and Stardust,
