Season of new beginnings

How can we balance me and us?

Happy Equinox everyone! This astronomical event is celebrated and symbolized all across the world. Equinox symbolizes the balance of light. Today, no matter where you are on the Earth, day equals night. Light equals dark. And on the horizon, the Sun rises and sets at the midpoint from its journey north and south.

Ancient societies across the globe saw this event and placed meaning on the solstice.

At Angkor Wat, Cambodia, a grand Hindu (now Buddhist) temple’s central tower is crowned with the Sun on the morning of the equinox.

At Chichen Itza, Mexico, a Mayan pyramid casts shadows of a serpent god Kukulkan at the precise moment of the equinox.

Across ancient Europe and the Mediterranean, people would create temples inside of structures or caves that would only receive light at sunrise on the Equinox. The ancients were so in tune with the cycles of the Earth through generations of observation.

Now, for us spiritual and cyclical change makers, it’s the beginning of the astrological year, the new, the start, the need to put ourselves first and initiate.

The Equinox is initiated in the Spring as the sun reaches 0º Aries on the Ecliptic. This Equinox has even more initiation magic with the moon meeting the Sun still at Aries 0º less than 24 hours sparking a most beautiful and powerful New Moon.

It’s so wonderful we get many new astrological starts. We can choose to start over again with each new breath. May your Equinox balance your needs, spark your initiative, and allow you to dive head first into the Aries “go-get-‘em” you need in your changemaking work.

Spark Your Trailblazing

To say this is an epic New Moon is an understatement! Our 3rd New Moon of the Year, the first of 2 Aries New Moons (the next one on April 19, is a rare hybrid eclipse). And smashed in between two thresholds of energy, the equinox that happened less than 24 hours earlier and 2 days before mighty Pluto moves into Aquarius, breaking a 20 year cycle.

The tremendous NEW energy is palpable. You are bound to be buzzing at this time. It feels like you are being asked to step through not one but 3 consecutive portals within a 72 hour period.

On top of these cosmic shifts, half of the major planets are partying in Aries with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Chiron and Jupiter all in this passionate fire sign.

With this much Cardinal Fire in the sky, we are all being asked how we can embody this Aries energy of taking leaps of faith and being exactly who you want without burning out.

To truly embody Aries is to be YOUR best, where you focus that competitive edge inward, and claim your prize. After all, you are the best at something, there is no one in the world that is you.

New Moons are times of initiation, intention and asking the Universe for what you want. And I want to acknowledge that it can be difficult to get clear on what you want. Society, culture, the media is really good at selling you what they want you to buy. It takes practice to clear out the noise of shoulds, expectations, to go after what YOU want.

With Aries, how do you want to be best or first?
What kind of initiative do you want to take?

To initiate is to lead. To lead is to step forward with courage. It doesn’t matter if you’re leading one person or a million. There are people looking to you to make the first move.

This New Moon is on your side to create a fresh intention around your leadership, identity, and initiative. You get to choose the very best version of your self identity, how you want people to see you, and the spark you want to ignite in the World.

The New Moon sandwiched between Neptune and Mercury asks how can you integrate both your logical and spiritual mind to clarify your call to action?
Chiron the wounded healer conjunct Jupiter in Aries asks how can you believe and be grateful for all your previous challenges were created for you. (And integrate this realization into your leadership?)
New Moon squares off with Mars asks how will you transmute your fears, resentments, and anger into motivation, drive and physical vitality? (It’s almost like turning your fear into a big f-u to your fear.)
