Mars and Pluto in opposition
In our fifth week of Lent (preparation for Easter, Resurrection), we have a new moon in Pisces which conjuncts with Uranus (Ray 7), the Aquarian planet of change (continuing, accelerating and underscoring the recent eclipses which bring inner and outer substantial and essential changes). The new moon (17 degrees Pisces) depicts a further withdrawal of Ray 6 and the Piscean Age influences.
This is also the week of the third Mars and Pluto opposition (0 degrees
Cancer/Capricorn). Mars and Pluto rule Scorpio, sign of reorientation, transformation and new life that emerge from the death of the old. Scorpio is Ray 4 of harmony through conflict.
With Mars in Cancer the media recently announced that the lack of flour reserves has created rising bread prices. With Pluto in Capricorn, our cupboards could become bare. Pluto in Capricorn brings about extreme discipline.
Saturday is the United Nation’s Day of Women’s Rights and International Peace. Let us define peace esoterically from the Tibetan’s blue books: “Peace is the result of understanding and sharing and not the origin of them” (Destiny of the Nations). In another section of the blue books, it states that it is the intentions of goodwill that create right relations, which create peace. In other words we do not begin with the idea of peace itself. We begin with intentions of goodwill, always.
Sunday, early morning, Daylight Savings time begins. We, and time, “spring forward.” Read more at www.nightlighnews.com.
ARIES: Subtle yet important shifts will be occurring in your life and on inner levels. You may feel as if you’re on a boat rocking to-and-fro wondering where you’re being taken and why. Attempt to anchor yourself within whatever spiritual reality calls to you while also reaching out to friends for support and reaching well into the future with hope. No one is prepared for the future that’s to come. But you will be one of those asked to help bring it forth. You can and you will. For now, observe.
TAURUS: New and different ways of living are being shown to you and they challenge your previously conservative (a good way to live for you) ways. There will be new goals offered to you and at first you will say “no” which gives you time to think. Then you will, after pondering, realize these are good ideas to pursue. Take your time. There is no pressure. When you decide something you move quickly.
GEMINI: Sometimes we express our identity by creating conflict or challenging authority. In this way we learn about ourselves, defining who we are and what we want (or don’t want). You may feel some limitation and this will drive you to changes that lead to freedom. Act within correct timing and look for new opportunities to suddenly appear. Events may occur that surprise or shock. Then a new direction suddenly manifests.
CANCER: It’s important that you have an open mind. Recite the Mantram “I have an open mind at all times” over and over to absorb the new possibilities that change your worldview. Events inform you that your previous thinking was a bit askew. Allow your thinking to be adjusted toward the truth and no longer based on opinions and judgment. This will be a large step in consciousness.
LEO: For some Leos, new intimate relationships will be available. For others, having property and money in common becomes either unavailable or too much responsibility. Other Leos will experience deep psychological changes. For all Leos, past needs have shifted to new needs and unexpected situations feel intense. Through it all, say “I am that.”
VIRGO: It seems certain changes must be made in relationships. This does not signify a fault, but growth. You may unexpectedly embark upon a wild relationship. Although not advisable, you’ll learn through its instability. Daily strategies will need to shift. Conflicts arising alert you that past patterns of relating won’t work anymore. The new ones will either be created by you, by others, or simply appear.
LIBRA: Should anyone or anything make excessive demands upon you, choose a different path. Should there be extreme responsibilities professionally, or anything too binding or restrictive, you will break free in order to ease tension. You will escape in order to find your own way, and you will seek your own path in order to maintain health and happiness. Your entire life will be revolutionized.
SCORPIO: Does life feel a bit more exciting? Are relationships not long term? They may be durable but you find you can’t have expectations. It could be that children or a very creative enterprise is in your life. With both (children and creativity) you see the need to be innovative, more attentive and taking different approaches, which helps you, redefine and refine your abilities. More understanding follows. Yes?
SAGITTARIUS: Your relationship to family, parents, home and the past are the most important aspects of your life now. There is a release occurring and a reform within the family and you are the one whose task it is to bring the past to the present. You feel unsettled no matter what you’re doing. You must summon flexibility. Whatever you have not looked at will emerge and gaze at you. The deepest level of your being is shifting to new heights. Hold onto your parachute.
CAPRICORN: It is important that you observe your communication and how it affects others. You must also know that the tempo of your life has increased and this can make for impatience with others, especially those slower than you, younger, more vulnerable. It shows the quality of a person in how they communicate with those who need help, look to us for guidance and care. Your old and learned habits, if they do not serve others, must fall away. Otherwise the consequences are dire.
AQUARIUS: Have your finances begun to withstand changes and is your economic and material situation not what it was before? This is occurring, or will occur, for everyone, but it seems to have begun with you. You will find that through this, your values also change. You already know to be green, ecological, organic, biodynamic and sustainable is only the beginning. The next steps for Aquarian are astrology and community. One leads to the other.
PISCES: Have you been acting in ways different from your usual behavior? It could be a cry for freedom even though others may see it as rebellion on the personality level. Should this behavior continue, you must then heed the message that perhaps certain changes in your life are overdue. Sometimes limitations appear to help us develop discipline, self-identity, contemplation and a new plan for life.
What will yours be?
