As the Sun shifts from Pisces into Aries on March 19, 2020 at 9:49 pm MDT, and marks Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, we find ourselves grounded in a circle of celestial light.
Alert yet calm, we invite the energies around us
to infuse our awareness and show how to be in this new world.
The primal fire of the Sun in Mars-ruled Aries ignites our survival instinct, while its partnership with Chiron in Aries stretches our perceptions to a new, higher understanding of how our survival is connected to that of others. A fresh understanding of self worth and success dawns upon us and an acute sense of what is critical for our physical bodies emerges now.
In the hush that falls upon us, we can almost intuit humanity’s collective new purpose and we instinctively know that our choices and actions have the power to support or suppress it.
The fundamental challenge of caring for ourselves– meeting our immediate needs now – seems to be at odds with a growing awareness of the interconnectedness between all living species on our planet, and indeed, Earth herself. This misalignment of our bodies and our spirits is calling for correction.
When Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is in the earth element, it points to the expansion of structures. The structures we’ve built as humans on our Earth home are changing rapidly now and expanding into something else entirely. Although on some primal level the changes we’re experiencing aren’t completely mysterious, they are nonetheless uncomfortable and/or unbearable for many. Growth thrives in zones of discomfort.
When planets are in Capricorn, they function at the level of our current definition of our human capacity. When Jupiter is in Capricorn, we become walking proof of our belief systems and any limits or freedoms that they hold. As Jupiter partners with Mars in earthy Capricorn, there is an extra magnetic force around us that draw our desires to us. Whether those desires are fueled by fear or love is up to us to decide.
As the wheel of winter turns to spring, what is unfinished in Capricorn must be resolved so that what waits to be born in Aries can arrive. Saturn, the celestial ruler of Capricorn, is at the end degrees of this mature sign, urging us to redefine what it means to be human now. Saturn and Pluto have been partnering in Capricorn for awhile to support our breakthrough to completely new understandings of ourselves and our limitless potential.
It’s up to us to take the next courageous steps forward and
assume our roles as creators of our ever-expanding reality.
If we drop into our hearts as we sit in this circle, compassion from Neptune in Pisces softens our rigid edges. As the noise of what was quiets and a sense of something bigger than ourselves fills the void, we court the concepts of trust and faith. The lines between us blur and we know that we’re not alone, nor were we ever, despite conditioning that led us to cling to that illusion.
As Spring dawns upon us this year, may our collective awakening
inspire compassionate action for our collective spirited expansion of love
across all boundaries of time and space.
With great love and blessings,
