TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – Here’s a recipe for a healthy, hydrating drink you might want to try. Love the name….Sassy Water…and the way it looks in the tinted Mason jar.
# 2 – And speaking of water….
# 3 – Cha, cha, cha chia!
(If you want to know more about the many benefits and uses of chia/salba, check out my webpage on the topic.)
# 4 – I just finished reading Enoch Tan’s Mind Reality Matrix e-book and found it to be very thought-provoking, insightful and stimulating…..the kind of thing where I did a lot of highlighting in yellow of things I wanted to remember. If you would like a free copy yourself, just leave a comment on this post or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Tan e-book” in the subject line.
# 5 – And this Abraham quote ties in nicely with Tip # 5 because one of the things the Tan book focuses on and explains is how you really are the center of the Universe…
“When you offer a vibration, the Universal forces are working in concert with each other in order to satisfy you. You really are the center of the Universe.”-— Abraham
# 6 – And here’s an insightful astrology update from Chris Flisher on the big cosmic line-up taking place in the next few weeks. It’s titled “In Like A Lion. Out Like a Lion,” which pretty much says it all…
The common phrase for this time of year is that March “roars in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” This notion sprang from the winds that usually kick in and herald the arrival of the Sun and longer days and warmer temperatures as April appears. This year, that may be true for the weather, but it is hardly the case for the astrological forecast. We have a planetary party that will likely bring down the house this month as the activity shifts from Pisces to Aries. And this is no small backyard bar-b-que. This party includes the entire block and then some.
Let’s begin with some of the details. As the Sun moved into Pisces in late February it was joined (in the same position) with Mercury, Mars, the Sun and Neptune (which has not been in Pisces for 164 years.) So, to say that a special guest arrived at the party is, indeed, an understatement. Neptune casts an enormously influential theme over the party as illusion, addiction, delusion, and fantasy all come along in his bag of tricks. This is the planet that rules over the subconscious, escapism, and all things dealing with the psyche; the good parts and the bad. When in Pisces, Neptune’s influence is at home; meaning that the presence of those types of events and themes are more likely, or at least, we are more aware of them.
Later, in the month Venus spices up the party. Every mutable sign (Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius) will have felt the impact of this powerful time. This party unfolded as we saw major political and social events occur on the world’s stage; the Pope resigns unexpectedly, the fiscal cliff appears, Bradley Manning is on trial, Syria heats up, the Oscars happen, and the list goes on as humanity shifts to meet this rising swell of historic events. This is a Pisces party to say the least, especially when you consider the symbolism of many of the events. The fish (Pisces, Icthus) is the symbol of the church. For the Pope to resign at such a time is actually quite profound and symbolic. (Consult me individually if you wish more information on that subject. email@example.com.)
This has brought a lion-like carnival (add the cruise ship debacle) of events as Pisces unfolded. Now with Aries standing in the wings, we have no gentle lamb awaiting, but an even mightier lion with an even bolder roar, beginning as Mars enters Aries on March 12th on the heels of a new Moon on March 11th. Arriving at its home rulership, Mars is particularly flamboyant and visible in Aries, a cardinal fire sign. At home and comfortable in the fiery realm of Aries, Mars sets the stage on fire with all sorts of action, aggression, ambition and aspiration. Mars is also an impulsive, impetuous planet so prepare for fireworks as other planets gather in. The most notable planet that Mars joins is Uranus. Uranus has not been in this position for 84 years, which brings us back to 1929, when the Great Depression and the early rumblings of WW II were already in the air. As Mars starts to apply (get closer by degree) to Uranus we can expect to see dramatic events. Uranus tends to be rebellious, revolutionary, inventive and innovative, so a full gamut of events are likely. Dramatic does not always imply disaster. That is important. Great discoveries, treaties and other types of positive events are also likely. A week later Mercury ends its retrograde cycle on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th and the celebration could be especially lively as everyone dons their green. Mercury will be next to Neptune so the possibility of over-imbibing is quite real. As we know, Neptune is the planet of escapism, so be wary.
By the time the Sun reaches the Aries Point (the first degree of Aries) and the Vernal Equinox we have three planets in close proximity (Uranus, the Sun and Mars) with Venus joining the gang on the 21st and bringing a lustrous light to events. The Aries Point is known for its ability to drawn fame and recognition so be mindful of that. At the same time the Moon will be moving through Cancer, a cardinal sign (water, initiation) and completing a square (90 degrees) to the Sun, Mars and Uranus. The Moon rules our emotions so things could get quite tense and, yet, the best is yet to come. At this point from March 20th to the 22nd just about anything goes with regard to scandals, aggression, exposure of major figures, and passages of significant bills. The major themes for this period are speed and drama.
If that weren’t enough, we have an incredibly powerful Full Moon approaching on March 27th at 6 degrees Libra. As you may know, Libra is another cardinal sign (air, initiation) that feeds directly into an explosive mix of planetary energy. At the time of the Full Moon, Mars will be in a challenging aspect to Pluto and the possibility of aggression is quite real. Both planets share Scorpio as a co-ruler and with Saturn holding court in Scorpio we can rest assured that a correction or scandal will appear that might involve some very high-placed characters. (I have my thoughts on who they may be, but you are best contacting me individually for that information.)
To summarize, we’ll have Mars, Venus, Sun, and Uranus all squaring Pluto and opposing the Moon in Libra for the Full Moon on March 27th. All of these planets are in cardinal signs which indicate new beginnings and initiation. This is a cosmic Molotov cocktail if ever there was one. Let’s hope that events turn in a positive direction, but we should prepare nonetheless. Not all events spell catastrophe and it is important to remember that positive change occurs through action, though difficult at times. Hold good intention as your guide and practice self-awareness.
