Now that Mercury has resumed forward motion, though he is still in his “shadow,” the reflections that we had during the retrograde cycle may start moving into a stance of action. The sun is in Pisces for a few more days – the last sign of the Zodiac. Pisces is a culmination of all we have learned, noticed, interacted with over the cycle through all twelve signs. ? It also prompts us to move out from the self and to join with the system that is our world and our universe – so how do we feel about how our relationships with ourselves, others and with the planet? Before we move into the instinctual, initiatory time of Aries, we can pave the way a bit. Looking in the garden last night, I noticed that some of my perennials are coming back to life. That new growth is protected by last year’s dried up stalks and flowers. So, over the next few days, after checking with some wise and more experienced gardening resources I will do some pruning to make way for this year’s growth.
This is a good time to do the same with other things in our lives. The Equinox is upon us. What worked this past zodiacal year – what needs keeping so that it can keep on growing and what may need to be let go, or moved to a different spot with different light. It is a good time to make a list of what to focus on as the Northern Hemisphere moves into long, bright days, and we move out from the inner, quiet, darker winter months. In the Southern Hemisphere, it can be a good time to look at what has been growing throughout the summer months that you many want to carry on with through the more inward time of Winter. With the moon in Gemini today, it is a great day to put down in writing an inventory of where you’ve been, where you are and where you’d like to go in the coming months.
Mars is already in his ruler, Aries, the energy of action is already rising up in our physical systems and propelling us into a new season of growth shaking off groundcover, poking up into the day. Much love to you today and every day.
