The Spring Equinox is the annual time for rebirth and Initiation. However in London it occurred before dawn, while most of us were asleep. This chart is one that astrologers use to predict events for the next 3 months.
The Moon was in Pisces, and a dark moon, so the energy is very surreal, with a lot going on behind the scenes. Neptune was rising, a planet of disguise and illusion.
So the energy doesn’t really get going until the New Moon.
And even then we have Mercury, Mars and Saturn all retrograde.
Its exciting- Uranus is next to this New Moon, but also can be very stressful, affecting you with sleepless nights and fraught days.
Uranus is a 84 year cycle, and we feel its high octane energy at 21, 42 and 63 years old.
Its responsible for the Mid Life Crisis, as it propels us to make radical changes in our lives. Uranus can be shocking, is totally unpredictable and its not known for being ‘nice’.
Use it well and its the turbo boost that lifts you into a new orbit.
Watch out in the next week for surprising events in the news and in your life, especially if you have any planet at 4 degrees in your chart.
YouTube Spring Equinox 2012
I have recorded a YouTube video where I briefly discuss the Aries Ingress March 20th 2012. Neptune figures strongly in this chart- a planet of healing, but also of illusion, deception and possible scandal.
Mars in Virgo opposite the Neptune/Moon/Chiron indicates frustration and anger. Be aware of nervous tension in yourself and others. Click to watch- its 11 minutes in length.
Chiron in Pisces and the Grand Mutable Cross
We have had the most glorious alignment of Jupiter and Venus in the sky, so everything should be rosy. Or is it?
Hidden from view is another story. Chiron the archetype of the Wounded Healer is opposite Mars, and at an exact right angle to the nodes of the moon.
This creates the most powerful alignment that astrology offers- The Grand Cross.
This cross is in the 4 mutable signs- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
Mutable signs are flexible, easily adaptable, and can see all sides of an issue.
However the negative is a loss of self and purpose, can exaggerate things out of all proportion, can lack perseverance and get caught in detail and forget the big picture.
Does this sound like you right now?
A Cross, just as it sounds. It’s extreme as 4 forces are locked in to create a “stand off” position and huge tension.
To analyse this Cross, we need to look at each archetype and integrate them so there is wholeness. Then there is healing and resolution.
The nodes of the moon relate to karma- the south node is the past. In Gemini the ruler is Mercury, so we need to pay special attention to the messages that we are receiving, and sending.
This is why I am emphasising Healing Your Soul Stories this year, as we can clear huge amounts of personal and collective karma.
Jupiter governs the North Node in Sagittarius, the sign that most fits Chiron. The North Node is evolution.
Our belief systems, and attitudes are under scrutiny, as individuals and as part of a global network.
Watching The Daily Show on TV hosted by Jon Stewart, I was appalled by the verbal viciousness of the election campaign in the US.
Mars is well known as the warrior, and since he is retrograde he is closer to the earth and strong. In Virgo there can be irritation with the smallest things, and a perfectionist ‘nit picky’ attitude which can delays all attempts to move forward. Mars wants action now.
However Mars won’t be moving forward until April 14th, so patience is called for.
Chiron as The Wounded Healer is now in Pisces, and bringing up deep feelings of loss and abandonment.
Pisces wants to return to Source, and can feel overwhelmed by daily life.
This planet is often described as the Wounded Healer but a more accurate description is The Maverick. Similar to Uranus, it triggers change and through that comes a deep awareness.
One big difference is that Chiron brings a gift.
If Pisces feels totally lost and forsaken by God, then the gift is the connection with All-That-Is through stillness, listening and meditation.
Healing Your Soul Story Coaching
Are you trying to tackle a whale of a problem? Feeling hurt or heartbroken?
We are never upset for the reason we think we are, its always something to do with the past that needs to be healed.
With that in mind, I invite you to consider some transformational life coaching with me.
The focus is on clearing your past life or ancestral story so you can embrace your destiny and your soul’s purpose.
“No matter what happened in the past, it’s built into the nature of things that in the present there’s a miraculous opportunity for rebirth.
Claim your rebirth by forgiving everyone — including yourself – whose behaviour threw the past into chaos.”
