The Sun glares at zero degrees Aries and embraces Chiron at one degree Aries as the wheel turns and we welcome the Vernal Equinox at 3:58 pm MDT today, March 20, 2019.
The Sun and Chiron conjunction forms a semi-sextile to Uranus at zero degrees Taurus, creating a low-level of tension that could build as the Moon grows full tonight, so we’re urged to consider whether or not our desires are aligned with our deepest values.
The Full Moon at zero degrees Libra, at 7:43 pm MDT, accentuates any potential gap between our desires and our values, and asks:
~ What and/or whom do we love?
~ What and/or whom calls out for healing?
~ How can we cultivate beauty, love, and all things Venusian as we exert our reach for what we desire?
~ How can we strike a point of balance and harmony between ourselves and others?
~ Where does the power to co-create our world originate?
These questions are highlighted by several other aspects in the charts of the Vernal Equinox and tonight’s Full Moon in Libra –
- Mars and Venus square each other in fixed signs of Taurus and Aquarius, respectively. Think masculine/feminine, expression/reception, warrior/lover, and bridge the gap between them.
- Mar in Taurus is inconjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, so we may let our primal needs take precedent over our higher ones. Think stubborn obsession over open-mindedness and possibility thinking. The potential for making practical progress toward our goals exists, but the way forward will be infinitely easier if we align our reach with our true callings and allow for our higher truths to present themselves.
- Another semi-sextile creates a sense of uneasiness between Venus in Aquarius and Pluto in Capricorn. Venus in Aquarius brings the focus of our love to a higher, more impersonal and universal level, which is where Pluto exerts its transformative influence. If we attempt to harness the power of Pluto for personal gain it’s likely to backfire, and it is time to clear old wounds, not create more pain.
- The conjunction of Retrograde Mercury and Neptune in Pisces may blur things a bit, but it also offers a solution in surrendering the old. Think forgiveness, dissolution, and release. A massive bounty of grace awaits those who surrender control and embrace acceptance as we undergo this powerful transition in the evolution of our consciousness.
As I write this on the east coast of the US, I can feel Spring’s pull beneath the surface of the buds on the branches of the cherry trees.
Each rising Sun calls us to open just a little more, to relax into the warmth and promise of a new day, to trust the cycles of life…and ourselves.
Here’s to shedding the layers of the past and opening to the gifts of Spring ~
With abundant blessings and hope, always,
