The stage is set, the drum rolls and the curtain is raised for the final scene – the protaganists – Uranus and Pluto – the old and the new – armoured up and ready to engage in their last battle. It’s been a long relentless one, lasting almost three years. There have been gains, there have been losses and there have been lessons. And now it’s crunch time. Are we going to choose the old or the new; the dark or the light, limitation or freedom?
It’s the final showdown – and its time to see who will survive!
This is the grand finale of all grand finales – a potent, potentially paradigm-shifting whopper of a week – The final Uranus Pluto square is exact on the 17th March and on the 20th , the Sun leaves Pisces accompanied by a total Solar eclipse (new moon).
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and when the Sun makes its way through the sign of the fish, it always signals the end of our Astrological year. The difference this year, is that the moon cycle ends on the same day as the sun’s cycle– in the very last degree of Pisces. This week, as the moon wanes towards her final degree, we are given a one-time-only chance to really clear the slate, in readiness for the Sun’s entry into Aries the next day on the 21st, which is also the Autumn Equinox.
I’m seeing this as an incredibly potent opportunity to make a grand entrance onto the centre of the stage of our lives and face our perceived demons for once and for all. No victimhood. No blame. Full disclosure. Complete honesty and responsibility. We have a chance to really face our issues this week and see what we can still glean from them. (They’re likely to be emblazoned into our psyches and across the skies in techni-colour anyway, so they’ll be hard to ignore).
If you don’t know what your issues are, look at the people who are pushing your buttons and the situations that are upsetting you. When you hear yourself uttering a sentence starting with “ XYZ should or shouldn’t…” you’re probably on the right track. Ask yourself where you should or shouldn’t do the same for yourself or others.
Allow yourself to feel what you’re feeling and breathe. Invite that feeling, as if it were a person, to join you on your stage and engage with it. It might be righteous indignation, niggly irritation or deep rage, paralysis, an inexplicable uneasiness, anxiety, depression, sadness or sheer unadulterated fear. Ask what is beneath that feeling and what it has to teach you.
With all the Pisces energy around, this is the week to spend time in a reflective or creative space, to assimilate all you’ve experienced and learnt over the past 3 years. Where were you then and where are you now? How were you then and how are you now? What has shifted in your life and what would you still like to shift more?
Do some kind of ritual before or on the solar eclipse to release anything you don’t want to hold onto. Writing it down on a piece of paper and feeding it into a fire is really effective. And then – the next day, set some good, strong, clear Arian intentions and send them out into the ether. This is the time to actively be the change we want to see. Whether you’re wanting to give up sugar, exercise more often or change a destructive way of behaving – this is the time to put your money where you mouth is and actually commit to making the change.
We’ll be celebrating the eclipse and equinox on Saturday 21st March at my Yin Yang workshop (there are a couple of places left)
I’m also thrilled to be planning two workshops in Johannesburg on 18th and 19th April and an Inspired intention workshop in Durban on the 25th April. See below for details.
