Welcome to the advent of the Spring season here in the northern hemisphere! The vibe across this great land of ours is hopefull as friends and neighbors dust off patio furniture, shops for seeds, survey their yard for the upcoming season, and begin making plans for the future. This is a time of beginning, of hope, of planning, of looking forward and being present in this moment, all at once. We are taking the learnings and experiences of our winter, and finding a context in which to place those experiences as we move forward. Where I live, we had a number of snowstorm bursts this year, and the cold weather has runs its course, as many of us are more than ready for flowers and short sleeves!
Venus, the planet that calls our attention to love and relationships, beauty and fairness, the appreciation for the arts, and issues with women, has moved retrograde until mid-April. This will more deeply affect persons born under the signs of Taurus and Libra, as this is your ruling planet.
The Sun has moved into Aries, indiciating a time for beginnings, for a fresh start. Energy may be high or polarized towards certain life areas - be sure to check for balance in your life, in all areas. This week, Mercury will join the Sun in Aries, as well as the New Moon on 3/26. This buildup of planets in Aries - the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury - will square Pluto in Capricorn. It is a good time to take a risk, begin something new, clear your life/work space, begin affirmations and the like. I would like to just again mention the need for balance in all things, to remember to take pause amongst the haste, to connect with nature, look at the stars, engage your meditation practices.
My name is Jane Robinson, and I have been in love with our planetary bodies and the cycles they represent for all of my life. This is my first astrological blogspot....I look forward to connecting with you again.
