And what once flowed in
Now flows out
Everything rests in the eye
It all turns inside and out
Out and in
For what is a breath
But a returning to
Beginning and ending
In the same moment
It is not the same
And yet always is
Is just now
And all the unknown
Is just as well known
Is and never was
And always will be
I hope this day finds you and your loved ones well and healthy in these times. I can assure you I am healthy, safe and working hard in the garden and so that’s why this article is late. Also, I find myself at a loss for words more than usual these days with Mercury swimming though Pisces again, clearing his retrograde shadow until the 29th. April will be a full steam ahead kind of month for the projects that we can still engage in safely. Along with a New Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron and Lilith we are in a time of profound beginnings and endings in a coming reflection with the Libra Full Moon where the work we have been doing to heal ourselves will be reflected in our ability to relate with others. For one never comes without the other.
This New Moon is square the nodes of fate in Capricorn and Cancer where the eclipses have been for the past year. We are being asked to make major adjustments in our selfhood and sovereignty in sacrifice for the greater good. We are also being called to heal the wounds of trying to be ourselves in the past and being oppressed or injured for it. Like Chiron we can self-educate in order to find our own paths to healing, but Lilith will require us to feel and process some of the rage that may be pent up. Give yourself time to get wild and disciplined. To receive support and offer it to others.
The North Node in Cancer has been pulling us into our home spaces, asking we connect with the land, our roots, tribe and home for some time now. Now we are offered an opportunity to do this even if we weren’t planning on it. There is so much to give thanks for in the human heart- compassion, love, tenderness, support, loyalty, trust. May this time offer us an opportunity to cultivate these things more deeply in ourselves and to witness them in others.
Marking the first day of Spring, the Sun entered the sign of Aries on March 19th. Followed by a New Moon this time is potent for planting seeds of all kinds. Pay attention to the ones that take courage, confront our fears, beckon us into the unknown. Certainly, we are all healing the collective wound of the individual as Mother Gaia has grounded us to our rooms to reflect on how the way we live on this Earth is working and is not. To sit and contemplate how we have been born into a social structure that separates us from interdependence with the Earth and other humans on a new level.
Aries is about identity and strength of character. This is a powerful time to reflect on how we see ourselves as a part of the greater whole, not just the human whole, but as a part of a giant, conscious, living planet. With stores closing and resources threatened from our daily lives we may be realizing more ways we can provide for ourselves and one another by living more closely with the Earth and local resources.
Saturn has entered the sign of Aquarius orienting our integrity and work towards Cosmic Interdependence. It is time we reflect inward on our values regarding Earth and her resources and how our health and the Earths health are completely interwoven and reflective of one another. From consciously contemplated value systems we can then make decisions as to the most righteous way we can live as interdependent beings. Do you have a clear set of values regarding health, tribe, nature and our many interdependent communities?
Venus trines Jupiter this week lending warmth to even physically distant interactions. Take stock of the resources you have for yourself and your loved ones, see where you can share, trade or barter with your community. Building conscious, co-creative relationships with our human and nature communities is the greatest source of security we can establish at this time. True abundance rises up through the Earth and into human communities. Venus is the facilitator of its exchange through warmth and love, Jupiter is abundance and expansion. If you have been feeling too isolated, this week may reveal safe and responsible ways for you to feel uplifted and supported through community.
May this Aries new Moon afford us all the strength and courage to reach deep into our core and find strength and character to make these times the most transformative, healing experience we can.
Blessings and Great Health to you,
