There is much talk of the intense influences around this month. What with a total lunar eclipse on 15th, a Cardinal Grand Cross on 23rd/24th followed by a solar eclipse to round the month off on 28th/29th, yes, there’s plenty to excite! And of course, as with most things in life, these alignments do not just appear out of nowhere on the day in question
April looks set to be a month of inspiration and revelation as we begin to re-connect to clarity, vision and purpose in all aspects of living and being. Life so often gets in the way of clarity as it can clutter up the space within with things to do, people to see and places to go etc.
4/1 ~ Sun (core-self) ~square~ Jupiter (truth): This is a powerful energy. With that comes the necessity of discernment - it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that's a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle.
The Aries new Moon falls on March 31 in Australia and March 30 in the United States. This is a fairly firey new Moon with Uranus positioned just two degrees after it, which means that the hours and days following the new Moon could be rather interesting, perhaps unpredictable, explosive, revolutionary, life-changing, etc.
The full Moon in March falls on March 17 in Australia and March 16 in the US. This is an interesting full Moon and one that holds a fair bit of frustration, along with the desire to get going and make something happen.
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit.
Well it’s that time of year again. The preparatory journey to the big Cosmic “clearout” before Spring (Fall) Equinox arrives on 3.20.14. I have included this quote by Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron, because I feel it illustrates the energy of March beautifully.
March looks set to be a month for taking some big deep breaths and re-affirming our connection to life. We so often take life for granted, ticking along and along until one day we don’t tick anymore. It is usually only when something trips us up that we shift our focus and realise just how precious and fragile life truly is.
This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your immediate environment for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been pressing for some time now.
This energy gives you the courage to think things through and it activates your ability for strategic problem-solving if/when necessary. You will access your authentic voice and likely find an outlet for sharing your thoughts.
This Full Moon in Leo may feel pretty intense. If you like intense, you may well enjoy its spark and energy, but if you’re already feeling somewhat jaded and in need of respite, it might be a good time to lay low and let the world pass you by rather than engaging too deeply with it!
