Happy Spring Equinox
Spring Equinox arrives on Tuesday, March 20th at 9:16am PDT/ 12:16pm EDT/ 4:16pm GMT. This is also the beginning of the astrological calendar year with the Sun traveling through the sign of fiery, feisty Aries. Aries love adventure. They love new information, knowledge and are known for their curiosity. These are perfect qualities for beginning the new year. Ask yourself what NEW life experiences you want to create this coming astrological year.
I had a lovely discussion with a friend regarding the fact that we bring so much of who we already are to life that renewal, restoration and refocus are easier in a way then the idea of beginning something altogether NEW and DIFFERENT.
Remember we are living in New Age as it is called. We are now to be responsible for ourselves and others in a way that brings a sense of joyfulness and hopefulness. To me this is how I define my Spirituality. With the recent loss of my sweet son Michael John, I truly believe if I did not have my Spiritual practice I would not be here today. The huge crack in my heart chakra has definitely taken me down some pretty darkened roads and dropped me into what I call “rabbit holes”. The only place I can turn to when this happens is to Spirit. The Divine and the Universal Gods and Goddesses. This is where my strength lies. I must embrace the fact that this is Michael’s journey and no matter how much I feel the pain of his death and my loss; I can still be a force for good in guiding others to heal themselves. I constantly search for NEW ways of presenting information and insights to move all of us closer to living in peace and harmony with the natural world around us.
What will your new journey be? Ask yourself those important questions. Pick two or three qualities you would like to embrace and seek out new ways of bringing them into your life. It can be the littlest of change that can send a cascade of excitement and energy into your life. This is what Spring desires for us.
Please know it is not always necessary to experience a loss to create a new way of life in some area for yourself. We can use the energy that the Spring Equinox brings and plant NEW seeds with soil and fertilizer we may have never used before. Spring is the time of the year when the farmer looks at his field or acreage and even though he may have planted potatoes for many years; he/she may decide a NEW crop can be just as fruitful, profitable and even more exciting.
We are certainly moving towards a NEW way of life. This has happened because of choices made; sometimes by others. Due to these changes we must change. So be it! Let’s find ways of creating our own personal new experiences by doing the necessary inner work to accomplish the goal. I have friends that have moved to a whole new part of the country. They have had to become new people, wearing different clothes, eating different foods and making new and different friends. These are all examples of living with newness.
Mercury Retrograde, March 22, 2018 – This info was found on the “net”
This Equinox has an interesting twist to it however, as Mercury goes retrograde March 22, right on the heels of the Equinox.Mercury, the messenger, ruled by Gemini, the Communicator, goes retrograde till April 15th. Retrogrades are about looking back.Our thinking slows down, we make poor choices on the fly. We must ponder and consider the changes we want to make. Late April or May be the time you implement your Spring Equinox ideas, as they may be stalled prior to that. See set backs as a gift. What did you miss here? What did you forget? What didn’t you consider? Figure that out so when you do make a move, its the right move.
And this Mercury is also in Aries, as is the Sun. There is a lot of power in Aries. It’s the first sign of the Zodiac, the Leader, the Loner, the Explorer and the first of the Fire Signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. He is raw power. He is the God of War. His energy surpasses no other, so when you are faced with fuzzy thinking and the desire to go, not now, but yesterday, you’re in a tricky place. Use that poor tired mind of yours to calm yourself (have you been meditating??) and SLOW DOWN! Because your energy is going to be intense and hard to control. Just plan, review, review and more review so you can pounce in late April or May fully ready for anything!
