The Cosmic Story:
Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse, March 23, 2016 Time to Weigh Yourself in the Balance
We've reached a moment of balance, a silent, still moment, a breath between the old and the new. This is the space where we can reconfigure our lives.
Spring Equinox is here in the northern hemisphere--the balance of Light and Dark. For those of you in the southern hemisphere, you're celebrating the Autumn Equinox and heading into the winter months. Spring Equinox strikes that balance as it comes out of the darkness of the winter and into the growing light as we head toward summer. As a wonderful Goddess chant puts it:
we go round the spiral
Touching darkness, touching light
Twice each turn we rest in balance
Make choices on this night
Make choices on this night.
The choices we make this year are more important than ever. The world is shifting and changing, and we can take the lead in how it develops. With this week's lunar eclipse occurring so close to the Equinox, the energies of life are powerfully rising to help us throw off old patterns and stories that no longer serve us. Let the dead die. New life awaits us all.
The astrological year begins at Spring Equinox, welcoming back the Sun as it rises above the equator and begins its journey North. Whether we celebrate the Pagan Ostara, the Christian Easter or the Jewish Passover (which comes in late April this year), it is a time of rebirth and renewal. The Spring Equinox Chart, which is used to forecast the coming year, has a beautiful Fire trine between the Moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. This cosmic gift of creativity, structure and spontaneity will resonant throughout this year, so grab hold of these energies, be creative and have fun!
