Vernal Equinox ~ New Moon in Aries
Grand Earth Trine ~ Jupiter, Pluto & Mars
We are closing out the astrological year with a continuing blessing. Although we’re in the midst of Retrograde Mars and Mercury, we still have the presence of Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Pluto – harmoniously connected in Earth signs which supports manifesting abundance and empowerment in profound ways to bring in the Spring Equinox / New Year. Enjoy and utilize this energy!
Vernal Equinox ~ March 20, ’12 @ 1:15am EDT
The Spring (Vernal) Equinox occurs when the Sun enters Aries, marking the beginning of the astrological new year. Aries is the warrior, maverick and pioneer who can be impulsive and impatient, so be mindful of that.
This is the time to step up and be a spiritual warrior in your own life.
- In which part of your life do you need to be courageous and do something?
- What is no longer working that needs to change?
- What do you know you need to do and keep avoiding?
The Universe supports your efforts now, so make use of this tremendous energy and be proactive!
New Moon in Aries ~ March 22, ’12 @ 10:37am EDT
Two days after the Equinox we have a New Moon in the fiery, assertive sign of Aries. The New Moon is traditionally the time for new beginnings – to take action directed toward what you want to increase or create in your life, especially in Aries!
The 2012 New Moon in Aries is interesting because Mars (ruler of Aries) is all about new beginnings, yet Mars is Retrograde. So this supports visioning, planning, clearing and deciding what you will create, while leaving space for creative detours as you go.
Also, this is the perfect time to clean up and complete old projects or anything currently in process. Get your ducks in a row now and when the planets go Direct in April, you will be ready to go!
The Aries New Moon is the traditional time to make your Treasure Map or Vision Board for 2012. Think big and be daring – this is no time to play it safe or shrink to try and fit in!
Focus on what you want to create and be sure to do your New Moon Intentions in the coming week as the Sun moves from sensitive, compassionate Pisces into the courageous, initiating sign of Aries!
Mercury Retrograde ~ March 13 to April 5, ’12
Mercury goes Retrograde again for three weeks, giving you the opportunity to review, revise and make course corrections wherever needed. Take a breath and don’t be in a hurry – the energy doesn’t support rushing into anything.
Deliberate actions (not impulsive!), spiritual practices that connect you to your center, and flexibility will provide you with a foundation that will support and guide you during this time.
The willingness to open to new ways of seeing things will serve you well. Wherever you have difficulty, slow down and get another viewpoint (from yourself or ask someone else). Maybe there’s a new way of looking at a situation that will totally open it up for you! Don’t get stuck when something isn’t working…
