“…even the goddess Persephone is happy, if only for half each year.” – C.F. Joyce, Persephone in Hell
Spring Equinox is coming this weekend, March 19th/20th (in the Northern hemisphere), although signs of it have already appeared. The cataclysms and heaviness of a long winter season is beginning to fade. The bars and barriers of outer or inner confinements are dropping, and light is pouring through the cracks. The Sun in Pisces these past three weeks seems to have annihilated certain aspects of our egos, and certainly towards its last degrees we are being challenged to let go of many things that no longer serve us or reflect who we truly are as spiritual beings having physical experiences.
Chiron together with the South Node and Ceres has also been emphasizing the karmic burdens, hooks and hangups that are really not useful or necessary for us to carry anymore. We have been shown the myriad ways that we have starved and punished ourselves. We are the ones we have been waiting for – to free us.
The Sun approaches the area activated by the Aries Blood Moon in September of 2015, while Mars in Sagittarius forms a dynamic trine to it, blowing up, wrapping up, and releasing many of the themes that have been covered, at times ruthlessly since then.
With Venus pairing up with Neptune, we’re in the mood for music, art, and poetry… and perhaps more likely to wear our hearts on our sleeve than at other times. We’re also more open to miracles than we may have been before. Even a great many of those who have always been skeptical of any sort of God or special meaning in life are shifting their perspectives on life.
This is a great time for us to take inventory of what we’re holding on to physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and to engage in some serious spring cleaning.
It could help to ask yourself in each scenario:
“Does it serve an intelligent purpose? Enhance my life? Is it genuine? Is it true?” If the answer is yes, then keep it going. If the answer is no…well, you get to decide whether or not you want to continue to lug that shit around or be done with it.
A second eclipse is also approaching this month during the Full Moon in Libra on the 23rd. During the next seven days we are shaking the detritus from our psychic space and bringing closure to old ties and ways, so that we may walk into the season of Light with renewed strength and purpose.
