Connect to the powerful and supportive energies available to us for transformation during the full and new moon each month. Explore the type of energy that is expressing and use our intentions and meditations to make the most of the monthly cycle of energy.
The Worm Moon is the last full moon of winter. This is the third and last super moon of 2019 and occurs at the same time as the Spring Equinox and the Ingress into the sign of Aries, so it offers us a lot of support when we connect and aline with it.
This month the sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th, the same day as the Spring Equinox and the full moon. So, therefore this is a most potent full moon. We also have another full moon within this same Aries/Libra cycle. The full moon occurs on April 19th, when we will celebrate the Festival of Easter. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. Thus we are beginning a new cycle of creativity and manifestation.
Soft Aspects and Orbs: The trine and sextile are often referred to as soft aspects, and they suggest an energy between planets which is easy, flowing and innate. These aspects suggest cooperation between the energies of two (or more) planets and can reflect innate talents, things that come easily or naturally to the individual. As such, they offer opportunities for creativity; however, if there are too many easy aspects within a chart, there can be very little for a person to strive for.
Rayology can help us to awaken to who we are and how we can use our gifts and strengths most effectively. As we become conscious of our unique pattern of energies and when we live true to that pattern, we grow into who and what we already are in essence. In fact, it is our most profound purpose as human beings to manifest our spiritual blueprint or archetype.
Astrological aspects identify the mathematical relationship (or angle) between 2, or more, planets or angles in a chart. While there are many aspects used by astrologers, the best place to begin is with the five traditional major aspects, the Conjunction, Sextile, Square, Trine, and Opposition. Major aspects are those that can be used to divide 360 evenly and are each divisible by 10.
Each of these aspects represents a different type of energy, and some are more challenging than others. It is important to remember, however, that no aspect is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and too many or too few of one type can be a disadvantage. Aspects may be helpful or detrimental, depending on the planets involved…they describe the potential interaction, tendencies, abilities, and disabilities apparent with the inter-relationships that exist. In this article the conjunction, opposition, and square are highlighted.
Esoteric or Soul-Centered Astrology provides a way to understand ourselves through the lens of our individual consciousness. Astrology is an invaluable tool for self-understanding, personal guidance, and integration. However, traditional astrology is limited due to its inability to work within the framework of varying consciousness. Soul-centered Astrology factors consciousness into the analysis of an individual's astrology.
This month we are invited to balance the energies of the Pisces sun with the Virgo moon. Water and earth join in an attempt to move with the fluidity of water while still keeping our feet on Mother Earth. Pisces always envisions the mystical, the highest possibility, and the ideal manifestation. Virgo says, “That’s all good, but you also live in physical reality and must obey the laws of nature.” How do you engage with the earth energies to help you manifest your Piscean visions?
This month the new moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius, so focusing on Aquarian themes is a good way to celebrate this moon cycle. Some topics that will help you align with the energy of Aquarius are: embracing change, joining a group, taking on a new area of learning.
Eclipses always portend endings or beginnings, a birth of some sort or a death. It could be an actual death, but more likely it is a death of a way of life, or an institution or a closely held belief. Because this eclipse is in the sign of Capricorn we can expect that the ending or beginning will be around Capricornian themes. Capricorn is an earth sign so staying grounded in physical reality will be important. Organizing your every day life is another important energy of Capricorn so this is a good time to make sure your days are organized around what is most important to you.
