The Sun is in Pisces until March 20th which means there are are still a few days left of winter, though you’d never know it from the weather we’ve been blessed with here in the SF Bay Area. I had to laugh when I saw the white stuff flying through the air and on the ground this gorgeous afternoon as I headed out with my camera.
Overnight the trees are full of fluffy white blossoms. As you can see, the breeze was doing a good job of liberating them. I was delighted to see Mother Nature’s handiwork.
This is about as close as we come to having snow in this part of California. These tiny white petals strewn randomly about add a touch of magic, a lovely white carpet on which to tread in honor of the Vernal Equinox when the Sun enters Aries on March 20th and we begin the astrological New Year. Spring is always welcome in my world.
and the mind’s true liberation… Aquarius!
Okay, as you probably know, the Sun finished its journey through Aquarius and has been in Pisces for about three weeks already. The energy these days feels Aquarian, none the less. Chiron, the Wounded Healer and Neptune, the Great Dissolver continue their extended journeys through Aquarius and Uranus, the Awakener and ruling planet of Aquarius continues its travels through the middle degrees of Pisces.
At this point Uranus is very close to the North Node in Pisces. This is an extremely rare occurrance happening only once every 15 years or so. This combination sets the stage for a time in which anything can happen. Being open to new possibilities and looking for the gifts in those things that shake up the status quo in your life can help you shift swiftly and in unexpected ways from where you’ve been to a new direction you’d be delighted to move in now.
One of the keys to making good and skillful use of this energy is to make a point of living in the moment. Practicing stopping whatever you are doing for a moment and breathing deep, satisfying, lung-filling breaths will help bring you back to your center and calm your body as well as your mind. This moment is the point of choice. As we are present and awake for more of the moments of our life we become more aware of how we feel and can make choices that feel expansive and life enhancing.
The beneficial energetic potentials of Uranus to the North Node are building through the month of March and will peak in early April. Breathe deep and imagine the possibilities.
