This weeks Celestial Considerations with Brenda reminds us mindfulness and remaining positive is key to successfully navigating challenging times and energies. Many of us, myself included, have been feeling the challenging energies since the beginning of this year on multiple levels. However, if we remind ourselves times like these provide us with opportunities to grow on both emotional and spiritual levels, we can persevere through these times... we can not only grow, but thrive!
Sunday March 25th
Stay grounded and don’t get caught up in negative thinking. If you even hear negative talk, switch it around to something positive in your own mind...give yourself that gift. This week has some challenging energies that if we can use them with awareness, they can be very powerful. Be gentle with yourself and others. If need be, step back and become the observer... keep a soft focus and know what you are looking at. Often when we face challenges, it is simply timing for our greatest growth... remain flexible and ready to change on a dime.
When I see energies that are a challenge for me, I try to look at both where the ‘hang up’ could be and where the greatest growth or lesson might be. If I have an awareness of what is happening to me and those around me, I am better able to catch myself when I start to slip. We then have momentum moving forward. There is plenty of momentum to these energies this week.
Wednesday March 28th Venus conjunct Uranus in Aries
Conjunction is a concentrated and intensified energy of these two planets on top of each other. What you love and value for an upgrade or reformation. Add that we are in fiery Aries the leader and Uranus demands change---so go might as well go big on this one!
Thursday March 29th Aires Sun square Saturn in Capricorn
Solar Sun has your heart and soul challenged and irritated with the friction of this square with Saturn. This aspect may make you feel restricted, weighed down by responsibilities or under pressure, possibility with some time limits. IF you do feel this don’t allow yourself to get pulled down; take a good look at what is going on; prioritize and try not to procrastinate as this could make things worse for you on down the road. Most of all, DO NOT get into self-doubt or criticism. Success often comes when we accept new responsibilities (Saturn) and ‘step up’ these circumstances help us develop our potential (Sun) and grow more fully into who we are meant to be. As always, stay aware and take this up to the highest level possible and don’t resist the challenge of a new responsibility or creative project. If nothing seems to come up for you, get creative and have fun with it.
Saturday March 31st Full Moon Libra, Venus moves into Taurus
We have another Blue Moon with two Full Moons again here in March. Full Moon is the opposition to our Aries Sun and the time when we bring forth the seed we planted during the New Moon Pisces. With our Full Moon in Libra we want to balance these energies, and this is once again “as above so below”. We have an extra challenge with this Full Moon because we have both Mars & Saturn in Capricorn square our Sun & Moon; this is called a “T Square”. Think of the Sun & Moon in a tug of war with Saturn and Mars looking from the best seats in the grandstand adding their heckling (friction & irritation). First, it does not have to be a tug of war but rather a balance and cooperation between the Sun and Moon. Rather than let Mars and Saturn irritate us look at this as an opportunity for a turning point to leap forward... with this energy, it could be very dynamic. Both Aries and Capricorn are Cardinal signs which are outgoing and initiative; they like to get things started. It is time to get the ball rolling!
Venus the ruling planet of Taurus moves back home. Taurus builds the base. It is the mortar between the bricks. While Venus is in Taurus, it gives you the opportunity to integrate all the changes and upgrades you have recently received to all that you love and value. This is also a great time to honor and appreciate those special relationships we have with others in our lives.
Sunday April 1st Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries
This energy is also deeply effecting our Full Moon. With Mercury retrograde this can be a confusing time for others to hear our words... stay aware of miscommunications. Make certain that you get through and stay above the ‘noise’ and negative chatter around you.
