“Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction.”
March has some exciting and interesting markers to take note of – there's a New and Full Moon eclipse. In other words, it's a turnaround month for everyone.
The question is, what are you going to do with all the power that's in the sky?
As well, there are two equinoxes every year. These are when the Sun shines directly at the equator, which means the length of day and night is equal. The Vernal (spring) Equinox occurred earlier this week when the Sun enters Aries.
Our year has four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Our spring is from the Vernal Equinox (March 20) until the summer solstice (June 20), which is the beginning of Cancer. To mark the end of summer, the Autumnal Equinox occurs on Sept. 22 when the Sun enters Libra. Then autumn lasts until the winter solstice, which is Dec. 21, when the Sun enters Capricorn.
This is why Aries and Libra are opposite signs; and Cancer and Capricorn are opposite signs; and the four of them in a circle are like 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 9 o'clock.
The first eclipse in March was a New Moon that came on March 9. It was in the sign of Pisces, which is relating to fears. So are you meant to get scared around the time of the eclipse? Of course not!
Rather, it was a time just either side of March 9 to think about what you're really scared of and – as if not more importantly – about where that fear or those fears came from.
In many cases, the answer will be that your fears came from something that happened to you in the past, possibly your childhood? Possibly a parent made you feel not good enough in some way or perhaps you let an ex run riot over your feelings? Either way, this is the month to acknowledge and sweep these fears away.
The second eclipse is a Full Moon eclipse and takes place on March 23. This is a sure sign from the heavens that it is your life that is in focus.
This is not any old full moon but a lunar eclipse.The lunar eclipse may only be partial and observable across Asia, Australia, North and South America, but it comes at a time when the cosmos is heaving, so to speak.
In a previous article I talked about a great wave of change and its literal manifestation is in the way of serious flooding, looking towards southern USA and you will see major flooding going on. Even here water from the lake sits at my driveways edge. But also in its more important sense is of inspiring major events on the national and international stage.
Six months ago, on 28 September, a lunar eclipse on the same Libra-Aries axis became the signature on Russia’s intervention in Syria, so this is one of many situations which is now at a turning point.
And if you yourself can think back to that same time period and associate it with a certain turn of events, you too can expect to arrive at a crossroads now or in the near future.
March has been full of important cosmic developments, but none as significant as the lunar eclipse which takes place today.
This eclipse mirrors one that occurred in late September so these two time periods are connected. Maybe you reached the end of a long journey six months ago and a sense of closure was experienced or perhaps something unexpected happened that sparked a chain of events.
We will find that we want to be more in touch with our feelings and sensitivity, not less. Our emotions are our guide to a better life, not the ego-mind. But these must be our deeply felt authentic emotions, not reactions we borrow from a popular group-mind or a substitute rationalization used as avoidance and denial.
Analysis over dogma, healing over division, wholeness over alienation. Deep changes now will abide and be a strong influence.
Nothing at the moment is happening by chance :
the universal wheels of karma were set in motion a while ago.
Easter is early this year, which has again inspired a heated discussion as to whether or not there should be a fixed date for this Christian festival. The reason why the date changes from year to year is the moon. Easter falls on the Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox, which occurs on and around 21st March each year. That first full moon occurs this week.
We should remember that planetary alignments such as these are rare and the recurrence of such a collection is even more rare. Time is a continuum and like a spiral it circles and circles but moves forward at the same time.
Therefore we are never at any one place for long, nor do we ever return, despite the cyclical nature of time and planets. Planets will return to certain degrees within the zodiac over the course of time, but never in the combination presented today.
Eclipses may be seen as indicating times when our intentions and decisions carry more weight.They indicate turns in the path for our individual lives, and our planet as a whole
The thing to remember about eclipses is - a solar eclipse holds a vial of secrecy, leaving a haze to things you cannot see. Which is the opposite of a lunar eclipse that raises the vial, for all can see.
Here in Canada that might be in now seeing the newly elected Liberals (last pair of eclipses) and their 1st. Federal Budget, (this months eclipses).
