How have you all been faring with the energies this last month? Finding balance is key to navigating this challenging times, and my personal balance has been found through limiting my technology... which has been fantastic for my own self-care, but made this blog post a smidge late! Apologies! Brenda emphases a point that though the movement of the planets is specific, the energies and themes can be felt throughout the week, building towards and moving away from astrological events.
The strong energies of last week and our Libra Full Moon continue into this week with Mars and Saturn front and center. I have the exact days below, but know that the planets are working throughout this whole time frame. When you look at your boundaries are they right for you? Do they need some realignment? Are they too restrictive or not definite enough? You will feel your soul nudging you if you are out of alignment and Mars and Saturn will show you the way. Pay attention to the inner you and ignore all the outside chatter. Find the balance of our Libra Full Moon and Aries Sun. If you are still feeling out of balance take a look at what kinds of emotions are coming forward right now. Bottom line for this week is step back and view the greater picture. We have the beautiful Venus trine Saturn energy towards the end of the week, so you can start your gratitude early and bring more of that energy forward.
Monday April 2nd: Mars conjunct Saturn in Capricorn
This is a great time to commit to a goal. Capricorn will want to make certain that you dot the “i’s” and cross the “t’s” and not miss any steps towards that goal. You may also need to look at and possibly redefine some boundaries. With Mars here your boundaries need to be in alignment with how you want to lead your life going forward.
Wednesday April 4th: Mercury Rx in Aries square Mars in Capricorn
We have another square of our life force challenged by our words and thought forms. Think before you speak. This aspect will have the tendency to be too blunt or rush to conclusions... step back and stay aware. This is also a powerful energy for accomplishment or a turning point, so it might be better to utilize this aspect by putting your words down in writing. You can then edit how your words will sound. Remind yourself to give others the time to ‘edit’ their words as well.
Thursday April 5th: Mercury square Saturn in Capricorn
AND ANOTHER SQUARE! With this aspect with Saturn the tendency will be narrow mindedness or getting lost in the details. Remind yourself to step back and see the big picture. With Saturn in Capricorn this is a great time to get the hard-mental work done and off your plate. There may still be way too much negative chatter around you so continue to shift that to something positive. It always takes a lot of stirring up the pot before real changes can be implemented.
Mars is our life force and when we have its aspects it is asking us to live our life true to our soul. Mars has the reputation of being the warrior because when we are forced into a position that is not in alignment with our soul we can get defensive (become the warrior). Saturn is ‘The Law’ and I think of all the manmade laws that are still on the books that are so outdated that we laugh at them. I know there is a town in Montana that has a law against riding your horse into the bar…… I also know of a man doing just that a few years ago…… it is Montana! My point here being that we need to make certain that the laws and boundaries that we use are the right one for us at this time and always strive towards higher cosmic law.
Saturday April 7th: Venus In Taurus is trine Saturn
All that you love and value is supported and enhanced with this aspect with Saturn. Relationships with others are more harmonious and supported. Express your gratitude to those in your life in some way. Enjoy the ‘feel good’!
