Equinox starts March 19/20 Happy Spring/Autumn
Spring equinox marks the real beginning of the New Year because look around you, life is bursting into Life, budding, growth. Yes I do Tropical seasonal based astrology. The Sun is sitting right on the equator, we now have a balance of day and night.
For all of you South of the equator it is the beginning of autumn, but we are collectively experiencing a Retro-equinox, spring or autumn. A retro-Equinox is a Tiger ready to pounce but being held back by its tail.
Have you noticed the slow mo as molasses, twilight zone feel to everything? I’ve been calling it deer in the headlights emotions, people are frozen, scared, don’t know what to do.
We are all collectively waiting for the really Big shoe to drop, that’s what it feel’s like to me.
Sun symbolically enters Aries zero point at Spring Equinox, and Aries is ruled by planet Mars. It is Martial time! The military, soldiers, aggression, power, firearms, explosions, men, sharp weapons. But Mars is Retrograde, appearing to move backwards since January 24 but who can remember that far back?
Mars will turn direct April 13 BUT it will take until June 20th for Mars to get back to where he once belonged at 23 degrees of Virgo. So the entire season of spring is held in the wait and see…. feeling. Who will be the first to act?
HOLD YOUR FIRE, for now..
Mars rules the war room, so war talk in the backrooms, Iran? On the physical plane, which is Virgo territory, Mars Rx in Virgo makes you angry, grumpy, and irritated and your upper intestines feel yucky. Going over endless details to try to balance budgets, feeling tired, worn out, not very springy at all. The Moon will exactly oppose Mars on the 10th.
Saturn, Lord of Grumpy is also Retrograde as is Mercury now, so this is one giant back step, a look back in anger.
All Retrograde periods are very powerful and helpful; the planets are closest to the earth and are in their feminine Receptive phase.
Mercury rules the sign of Virgo, so we are re- re winding with 2 planets, unravelling maybe? on two levels in one sign.
Like winding up a mechanism, for the clock works to go, that’s how tightly we are being wound now. Mercury so Retro and will fall back into PISCES on Fri. March 23 and continue Retro until April 4th but will take till April 23 to recover lost ground.
