The Goddess of Now welcomes you to the 2018 growing season, the start of the natural year! The new season begins with the Vernal Equinox, on March 20th as the Sun moves from dreamy Pisces, into the self-directed, independent, first sign of the zodiac, Aries. New plans and projects are normally favored under this energy. This year, however, spring begins with a bit of a review of what we’ve been up to over the past few weeks, as Mercury, the Messenger, retrogrades on March 22. So, take your time before launching into something new and altogether different. Instead, use this period for spring cleaning your life! Make decisions about what is and isn’t working for you, release anything that doesn’t light you up, clean your closets, and complete or delete old projects. Mercury resumes forward movement on April 15, just in time for the Aries New Moon, with a big, bold invitation to take action on those things that spark your passion.
This spring, we are shifting out of a long-range trend that favored a proactive Warrior Goddess response, when we were feeling empowered, and a flight or fight reaction, when we weren’t. Uranus, the ingenious rule-breaker of the zodiac, that inspires new ideas with flashes of insight and the breakdown of old structures, is completing its 7-8 year journey through Aries and will soon cross the sign-line, into Taurus. The new vibe will be more aligned with reimagining the Earth Goddess, representing our sensual nature, amplifying the Feminine, considering innovative ways for women to say no to archaic patriarchal programming and show up in the world in a way that allows real, positive change to occur. There is a Goddess revolution underway and it will not look the way we think it will. May we all be open to this happening in ways that surprise, delight and encourage us to live more fully from the heart.
Sending an abundance of spring blessings to each of you reading this!
