April 4, 2012 Update

Dear Friends,

March 22 2012 –  Spring Equinox: The Sun and new Moon in Aries – marked the beginning of the Astrological New Year.  Can you feel the shift? Are things breaking through for you or are weak foundational aspects of your life crumbling and falling apart to make space for new ideas, concepts and ways of thinking/living? The ride has just begun and below I have highlighted some aspects that are playing roles in all of our lives

Mercury went Direct today!

Mercury in Aries went Retrograde on March 12th and went Direct today, April 4th. We’ve all been waiting for this shift!

When a planet goes “retrograde” it seems to slow down and move “backwards” relative to the Earth’s orbit. On March 22, spring Equinox, the Sun and new Moon were Aries starting off the cycle with the awakening energy of Aries, the Ram.  So with Mercury and Mars in retrograde at that time – it may have felt like we were rushing ahead and stopping and stalling – one step forward, two steps back!

Now that Mercury is moving forward again – the energy is shifting – we’ve had our time to review, re-evaluate and reassess priorities – now we can feel brighter and mentally more stimulated and have an easier flow of ideas and plans.

Mars in Virgo

Mars is still in retrograde in the sign of Virgo, and will turn direct on April 14th.  After it turns forward, our levels of frustration will ease and we may find it much easier to move forward on plans and projects.

Mars will be moving through the sign of Virgo until July 4th – an extraordinarily long time for Mars in Virgo.  If you have personal planets in the Earth signs of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn Mars can be quite activating.  If some of your personal planets are in Gemini, Sagittarius, or Pisces, there may be significant frustrations as Mars will be making stressful angles to these signs.

On July 4th Mars will enter the sign of Libra and focus more of our energies on relationships. Learning to cooperate, listen and understand our partner’s needs and finding ways to reconcile differences may be high on the agenda.

Jupiter in harmony with Pluto

Jupiter, Planet of good fortune and abundance is still moving through the earth sign of Taurus bringing opportunities to attract resources, and enhance our appreciation of what is beautiful.  Jupiter can also stimulate over-indulging and overspending – so it’s important to watch our tendencies to overdo.

Jupiter has been in harmonious alignment with Pluto in Capricorn since mid-February 2012 and is now moving away and will be out of range by the end of this month.  This harmony between Jupiter and Pluto is excellent for refining our leadership capabilities, and attracting opportunities to deepen our insights and grow spiritually.

Uranus/Pluto Challenges

Since last June, 2011 Uranus in Aries has been in challenging relationship with Pluto in Capricorn.  In some ways its bringing in the energy of the 60’s when these two planets were close together.  Now it’s more intense and global.  The energy of Uranus in Aries is very intense and can be volatile – it also depends on how it’s relating to your personal planets.  Uranus is the energy of breakdown and breakthrough – people taking to the streets, governments toppling, economies destabilizing.  Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, delves deeply to find what’s underneath the surface in many areas of life, collectively and individually.  The sign of Capricorn has to do with structures – so – putting it all together – we’re in a cycle of breakdowns and breakthroughs as weak foundations crumble and new forms emerge.

Making the Most of this Major Energetic Cycle

Now is a very exciting time – to bring forth new,  life enhancing patterns and systems that will truly support us.  The old systems and structures  are clearly revealing their lack of healthy, life-affirming foundations for growth and happiness – for society and for individuals. Uranus also has to do with authenticity and innovation- it’s time to be living into who we really are and adjusting our priorities accordingly.

During this cycle of creative new beginning its very helpful to get an Astrology reading and understand your life patterns – with their strengths and opportunities for growth. It’s also very helpful to put new strategies into action as you learn to move around what may be blocking you from expressing and living into your potential.
