The Gamble’s Santa Cruz film “Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take” has set out on a world tour. The film presents new ideas (Uranus in Aries) that create the needed new thoughts, ideas and conversations in towns and cities everywhere. They form the foundation for the new culture and civilization humanity, in the Aquarian Age, must envision, develop, shape and build together. To see the film and to be part of this movement see www.thrivemovement.com/.
Monday night, early Tuesday morning spring begins. With the Sun at the equator, the Sun seed in our bodies, following the Sun’s path, has settled in our hearts. Monday is Pisces moon. As Pisces saves the world, Aries says “let’s bring in all things new, here, eliminate what is no longer working, decide how to initiate the new society, the new conversation, the new thinking under the new Laws & Principles (Uranus in Aries).
Tuesday is International Astrology Day. Astrology is the language and new psychology of the Aquarian age. Wednesday, Sun joins Mercury (messenger) in Aries. The Sun (our Solar Logos, Ray 1) has begun a new solar cycle (every 11 years, thus solar flares, electromagnetic storms, all affecting life on Earth). This is how our world will change and how the old will pass away. Pluto in Capricorn will see to it. During the Mercury & Mars retrograde we ponder upon and envision together the new world. We are its creators.
ARIES: You shift from instinctual knowing to searching for self-identity. You need both; for all of our identities are changing as fast as the world is changing. We are reflecting this changing world. Unless of course we are stranded in the old world, but this doesn’t apply to you, always the one initiating new things. Know that you will responsibly apply yourself to all challenges.
TAURUS: You might be feeling different these days, vulnerable, tender, nostalgic, inflamed, exhausted, unable to sleep or sleeping too much. Your digestion may be off, your eyes tired, your stamina lessened. Be very careful with diet. Learn what your dosha (ayurevedic constitution) and blood type are and eat accordingly. Seeking alternative health care would help. You are valuable, we need you. Stay healthy.
GEMINI: Each week I ask what your dreams and visions are. I ask these questions because visions propel us into the future. They are based on desires and aspirations. When we envision things, we create a magnetic field around that vision and it “calls” things to us. Some of us no longer have visions. We have despaired of visions ever coming true. Where do you stand on this? Because at this time in the world your visions lead (or don’t) others.
CANCER: The planets form an umbrella at the top of your chart. This umbrella of stars and planets is not shading you. They are casting you in light — of accomplishment, appropriate responsibility and a vibrant sense of achievement. Your presence helps others feel successful and move forward. An important task and identity. We know you’re shy. We know you notice.
LEO: Your sense of justice stands alongside your sense of adventure. You need the adventure, the rest of the world, including the kingdoms, need justice. And so you shift from self to the world and back again until the two synthesize and you simply become the adventurous one creating a just world. New groups around you form. Leo’s are leaders leading with heart.
VIRGO: I wonder how you’re doing with the ceaseless Mars retrograde in Virgo. I wonder what you are thinking and if you’ve shifted back to the past, if you feel estranged in a desert of aloneness, if you’re feeling critical of others, which leads criticism back to self. I wonder if you’re in the preparations and purifications of Lent (the best way to respond) cultivating the virtuous life. What is the virtuous life?
LIBRA: Relationship is the entire focus at this time and well into spring. You want to be worthy of esteem through acts rooted in kindness, compassion, a generous spirit that produces real love. You want, within deep change, to maintain stability, a foundation based on love and respect. Each day you become more sensitive. Think on others who are also sensitive. Especially to you. Is there a need to forgive?
SCORPIO: So much energy is in reserve now, held behind the scenes. Mars, your planet, retrograde so long, will, mid April, burst forth like a rocket, its trajectory (your passions) unknown. Each day you carefully accomplish daily tasks. What these tasks are depend upon whether you are a seeker, aspirant, pledged disciple, accepted disciple or Initiate. Which are you? What tasks do you accomplish each day? Why?
SAGITTARIUS: In time, things around and within you become brighter, more accessible, less hidden. You wonder always what’s the right step to take. Take no steps into the bold unknown, not yet, unless it’s the bold unknown within the self. Take seriously the Lenten preparations. The Mercury retrograde takes you home again. Really or metaphorically. There’s work to be done with family and something else there. What is it?
CAPRICORN: You’ve entered a new world, one offered and chosen. It has new life, vitality, color, shape, beauty and it holds your future. Step lightly there for now. Later you will be a leader. For now, all the stars and planets are creating a new stable foundation for you. Like a carpet of light for you to step into and on. It’s most important to tend to family in new ways. Ponder quietly on this. Revelations will eventually appear.
AQUARIUS: The planets and stars are creating a stellium (many) of light within your brain and mind. You might be thinking at the “speed of light.” Do you know that there’s something faster than the speed of light? It would be good to take notes during this time when you mind will feel it’s in a shower of meteors. Within each spark of light is an idea to be anchored. This is a serious time of revelation for you and your Aquarian tasks ahead.
PISCES: For years you’ve been following the guidelines of others while simultaneously following inner guidance. It’s important for you to identify at this time the value of your work, abilities, knowledge and gifts. They bring others into new states of identity, create (even if resisted) new conversations and allow others to greater awareness. You will be offered much in the coming months. Assess with care, invoking right timing, direction and discipline and Right Knowing.
