Happy Birthday to us! All of us!
At least all of us on the Earth. We are at the Equinox, the moment when the Sun is directly above the Equator.
For the Northern Hemisphere, it's the Vernal Equinox and for the Southern Hemisphere, it's the Autumnal Equinox.
But Equinox it is. Equal Day and Night. Equality of Light and Dark.
A momentary balance on our journey through the Seasons.
Astrologers look at this moment and cast a chart for the upcoming zodiacal year. Here are a few considerations:
With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Scorpio, Mars will have a strong role in the next 12 months because Mars rules both of these signs.
Mars is in the sign of Aquarius right now, conjunct Venus. Yes, Aries and Aphrodite are still traveling together, but in Aquarius where they both seek fairness and the good of all.
They are in a tense conversation with Uranus in Taurus, negotiating a way forward that may have some surprises, for Uranus is known for the unexpected.
Often, an unexpected AHA! moment. This may come collectively through breakthrough technologies, but they will impact your personal life, what you value and how you acquire your desires. The sand is shifting beneath our feet!
Locate the zero Aries point in your own chart. This will show the arena of life where you will experience new beginnings.
Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct in Pisces in this birthday chart. Mercury is very soft and hazy in Pisces but it's a Jupiter-ruled sign so mentally we may all be moving collectively towards greater mercy and expanded trust in a divine intelligence that has our back.
On Tuesday, the moon leaves the intensity of Scorpio and enters enthusiastic Sagittarius. And it's trine the Sun so here hope is renewed.
On Thursday, the Moon enters grounded Capricorn. This is the first quarter square which always requires some action to overcome an obstacle.
The week finishes with the Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and some serious choices need to be made to transcend the patterns of the past.
We are all in this together so let us choose wisely and with loving hearts to infuse this coming Astro year with new hopes.
