Aries Decan ii – 3 of FIRE

3 of FIRE – Aries Decan ii – March 29 – April 9, 2019

Creation of Action Image: Three wasps collectively work to build a safe haven in hidden places. Look before you reach your hands into brush piles or into outdoor electrical panels. Their fiery stings remind you of their resolute determination to survive.

KEY WORDS: Rash Action, Anticipate obstacles, Warnings, Networking, Collective, Authentic drive.

ASTROLOGICAL SYMBOLS: Sun in Exhaltation implicates Royalty, and their Habits, Virtues and Vices being observed. Begin Group Projects, Use this Energy of Collaboration, Develop new contacts, Work Collectively, Reach out for assistance and funding for worthy projects that serve the Greater Good.

During his decan, Mercury will have just gone direct, relieving some of the technical difficulties you may have had in communications, bargaining, and marketing. It sure was an extra confusing period while Mercury was associating with Neptune, bringing lots of diffusion and confusion about collusion! Alas, this looks to continue for a few weeks.

Look for Mars entering Gemini, on March 31, bringing a harsh tone to communications and a warrior spirit in business dealings. Mercury again meets up with Neptune on April 2ndat 17* Pisces, bringing illusions of spirituality to things that aren’t necessarily thought of as such. Perhaps there will be visions of con men signing bibles again? You may fall head over heels “in love” but it is probably only illusionary. Hold fast to the handrail and be thankful for reality checks and consumer protections.

Thursday, April 4, Pluto meets up with the S node in Cancer, allowing us to clearly see the impressions we’ve received from our upbringing. This power for potential clearing the air will reflect on the energies of the lunar eclipse we had on January 21, with a similar feel to it. Do you remember the energies of Venus trine Mars and square Saturn?? Everyone was watching the Lunar eclipse in 0* Leo turn red, while Venus was kissing and telling secrets. Where have you been betrayed by untruths in your upbringing?

Also on April 4, the Sun is trine Ceres, asteroid of goddess of grain. I would caution that you observe what you buy to eat and be sure of the contents in your foods. Go organic, local and vegetarian for the healthiest options, just to be on the safe side. Ergot, a grain fungus, is the original source of LSD. Ceres is due to turn retrograde on April 9th, so this is a possible early warning of news of an outbreak of bad breads and grains. Maybe it’s a downturn in grain futures?

The NEW MOON appears at 15* Aries, which is a key point of sensitivity. New ideas will abound and clarity should be apparent on Friday, April 5, 2019. So, MAKE A WISH as it is sure to come true this time! Count your blessings and watch them multiply.

2 of FIRE – Aries Decan i

SPRING EQUINOX – MARS RULES ARIES I – 2 of FIRE

March 20, 2019 marks the start of a new Solar year as the day and night become equal in length. This year our Equinox is marked by a Super Full Moon and input by Uranus at 0* Taurus. The Super Full Moon is the 4thand last of the Full Moons that have all been as close as the Moon gets to Earth, hence, the word Super. It will look Super sized, especially when it is rising as the Sun sets this Wednesday. Try to find a ridge top or hill where you have an unrestricted view of both the Sun to the West and the Moon to the East. It is a really special feeling to hold each of them in your upraised palms.

TAROT: 2 of Fire Tarot indicates the beginning of cooperative enterprises, I indicate this by two Bees…To bee or not to bee, is the question we must ask ourselves at this Starting line; what is it that we would most like to bee come this year?

ASTROLOGY: The First Decan of Aries this year sees the Moon at the zero point of Libra, indicating the ‘others’ or the collective of humanity, whereas the Sun, Ego, is at the zero Aries point, indicating the Self. There will be a choice to make about whom you wish to associate with, and to whom you focus your attention upon. Be sure to include plenty of self-care as well, so that you don’t drain your psychic reserves, now that Mercury is still retrograde in Pisces. You could be tempted to go overboard serving others.

Uranus is 150* degrees away from the Moon, sending a rather obsessive chaotic energy toward the masses of people on Earth. What will they be rising up about? With the tides super high it puts strain on Earth’s plate techtonics, so there may be some Earth moving going on.

This Decan the S node will conjunct both Pluto and Saturn, so there will be a bit of revisiting the past, especially about things that need to be transformed and new rules that must be laid out. This is so that the North node in Cancer can serve the higher good of all.

Look for interesting happenings around March 24 – 26th. You may not believe your eyes.

10 of Water – PISCES Decaniii – Happiness

10 of Water – Pisces Decan iii – March 9 – 19 – 9 KEYS TAROT

“Man’s search for Happiness can create a false sense of urgency, whereas the presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.” -me

When we are free to express ourselves and our quest for individuation is complete, what kinds of emotions will we see manifesting in our lives?

These are the questions that the third Decan of Pisces brings.  Typically, this card exemplifies the attainment of Emotion, which I interpret as ‘Happiness’. What emotion is on your mind right now? How do you see yourself going about attaining it?

Astrologically, we are in a rather confused state of energies as Mercury is retrograde until the end of the month, Mar 28. Uranus has just ingressed into Aries for the next 8 years, bringing chaos and sudden changes to the forefront of our frontal lobes. “Be prepared to be startled, yet learn to regroup after emotional shocks”, is the lesson ahead.

Neptune’s influence will create even more confusion about truth and lies, so remember to check your media sources carefully before jumping to conclusions. Learning to return to our core self, is a secret to remaining calm in the midst of chaos.

Learning self-soothing techniques, such as EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique or ‘tapping’ exercises may help you to confront overwhelming emotions and recenter yourself.

Try this link on YouTube; Nick Ortner has good video demonstrations of EFT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRfLTQjJhp0

The intelligence of this Decan is to learn to appreciate what good is present in the current moment. ‘Presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.’ Namaste’ ~K

JOURNAL PROMPTS: Planetary Mash-ups

JOURNAL PROMPTS for MARCH 6 – APRIL 23, 2019  LENT

Observant Jews have a practice that’s called ‘Counting the Omer’. It is a spiritual practice of counting the days between Passover and Shauv’ot that occurs in late Spring.

I devised these exercises on a similar context of using the planetary energies of the lower 7 spheres in the Kabbalah glyph; (beginning March 6 as the first day) just as Mercury goes Retrograde, for a time of reflection and renewal prior to Easter.

The JOURNALING practice helps us to experience the subtle differences of combined planetary energies with a Theme that we can consider, practice, write about and learn to embody. I hope that we can meditate on these energies for insight and listen for inspiration toward action we can take towards spiritual observation, purification & growth.

Have fun with these exercises; doodle, create symbols, ponder, dream and explore the concepts for greater self-exploration and insight! ~K

Mind is the Builder

“The Spirit is Life. The Mind is the Builder. The physical is the result.”  -Edgar Cayce, The Sleeping Prophet 1877-1945, edgarcayce.org

Minds is the Creative power that links us to the Great Creator, the Creative Cosmic Mind. Mankind was created above the animals but just below angels by our gift of thought. It is through our power of thought that we are creators of our realities. This is something that instinctive animals do not have; the power of reason, logic, the ability to pause and choose our reactions, the power of memory that serves to inform our consciousness and conscience. The power of Intellectual Thought comes through the evolutionary development of our brain size and capacity.
A drawback to thought is that thought depends on our perspective. Our perspective is shaped by our interpretation of past events and our programs. We are programmed to view the world in a specific way, based on our parents’ beliefs, our culture and accepted norms. Without questioning this initial programming, we are like robots operating on presets. It is our adult responsibility to check on the motivations and reasons that we were programmed in the first place and re-set our basic values, morality, and perspective to those universal virtues that provide equality, fairness and serve all of humanity.
Perspective forms and flavors Beliefs.
Beliefs lead to clear Understanding.
Understanding leads to right actions.
Right action is the way to a good life via good karma.
Karma works to attract to us that vibration with which we resonate.
Knowing yourself is the first step toward understanding everything~
We must encourage each other to be empowered to take responsibility for our own lives. Seek and you will discover. In discovering, you will be confused. By sorting out that confusion you will be amazed. And in that amazement, you will see the truth of things and you will know the truth of your Self;
You are a Divine Being having a Human Experience!

9 of Water – Pisces Decan ii

9 of Water – Fish

PISCES DECAN ii March 1 – 9 / TAROT 9 of Water: Conformity
Key Words #Cooperation #Indulgence #Pleasure #Conformity #Ideals
 
March 1 begins the pent-ultimate chapter in the Wheel of the Year. There are only two more Decans until the Spring Equinox, which begins a new Solar Year. So this month is mutable and creates space for many changes to occur!
ASTROLOGICALLY
March 1 Venus gladly enters Aquarius, after a month of configurations with Saturn and Pluto today’s square to Mars/Uranus is more positive and uplifting. Uranus provides the impulse for change and Mars lights it’s fuse. Consider it like early December, when you’re asked what you’d like for Christmas. You’re going to receive something, so are you going to ask for something you especially like or need? Get busy making wish lists and clearing space for the new to enter.
 
March 5, 2019 Mercury goes retrograde, causing us all to Rethink, Remodel, Renew our ideas and priorities. (I sure hope to get a boost in creativity like I usually do with retrograde Mercury, as this Winter seems to be hanging on longer than expected!) Mercury will be swimming upstream until March 28, 2019 so be sure to back up your pc’s and be ready for travel plans and meetings to meet with delays and snafus until then.
 
March 6, 2019 is a significant day, as Uranus moves into Taurus for the next 8 years. When Uranus moved into Aries on 11 March 2011, the Fukushima nuclear reactor began to melt down. Let’s hope whatever volcanos, earthquakes or landslides shake-up, they do it in unoccupied places and resolve quickly. Uranus affects the electric power-grid and Taurus represents the Earth, our comfort zone and pleasures. When they get together, we may see ‘electrified earth’. Whatever happens, I hope that the next few years will bring us legislation that protects our ENVIRONMENT!
 
March 6 is also the New Moon in Pisces, so the Sun and Moon, and this time, Neptune meet at 15* Pisces. This is a key degree, as it is right in the center of Pisces 30* house. Spirituality will be on the forefront as this occurs on the same day as chaos maker Uranus moves into a new home. It would be an ideal time for a world-wide collective prayer!
 
MARDI GRAS is March 5 and Ash Wednesday begins 40 days of Lent. I see Lent as a period for head to toe cleaning;
(Earth) Take time to do some Spring-cleaning and donate what you don’t use to someone who may need it. Start a diet and exercise routine. Fix things around the house and peruse your garden magazines.
(Water) Look at your relationships, especially the ones that are most intimate to you, to see how you function in this role. It’s a good time to set new boundaries and have gentle talks about topics that could improve. Be sure to give before you ask to receive.
(Fire) Next, try to take time to meditate on what your drives and motives are in life. When you can connect with your heart’s desires you can move along smoothly in the right direction and things will begin to go your way more easily. And lastly,
(Air) observe and purify your thinking. Try to catch yourself if you say things without thinking. Be mindful of what choices you make and what filters you have on the input you receive from outside sources.
 
TIPS By the time Easter rolls around, 6 weeks from now, you should have securely embedded new habits and practices in your life, if you are mindful now. The Universe is aligned for us to create new, hopeful thinking now, so take advantage of it!
 
VISUAL Think of a school of fish and how they swim in tight formation. They move in a collective way to protect one another, yet fall into the same nets together. There are times to act collectively, for large undertakings, yet we need to be mindful not to fall into routine thinking, just because it’s easy.# Namaste’ ~K
