LIFELIGHT ASTROLOGY UPDATE 21 MARCH

HAPPY NEW YEAR

 

Our new Astrological year has finally begun, with the sun entering Aries, the sign that governs new intentions, new beginnings and new life. This is the time of the year when we feel a real desire to emerge from the oneness, express our individuality, stand up, be seen and push forward with new initiatives.

The cusp on which Aries falls in your Natal chart is the area of your life which is where you will be wanting to focus your energy and  where a new cycle of expression will begin.

Some other important news is that Venus, the planet of love, peace, harmony and money,  is currently travelling retrograde through Aries, which means that she will be in the sign of the warrior for 13 weeks in total, compared to the normal 3 weeks she spends in a sign.

With her being retrograde, we are asked to re-visit our relationships, our money and our value systems. If there seem to be blockages in any of those areas, this is a good time to reassess them and make the changes that need to be changed.

When you combine the feminine energy of Venus with the fiery boldness, individualism and assertion of Aries,  you can end up with a ragingly angry feminine force OR a person who stands gently, but firmly in her own power, despite the opinion and actions of others.

This is the time of the year, where we are encouraged to explore our uniqueness, to embrace life to the full… to move, to sing, to dance, to make art, to make love, to adventure….  to emerge from the  shadows, step into our power and boldly embrace the next step in our lives.

Where are you unique?

How do you stand out from the crowd?

What is one audacious dream you have for your life? ‘

Where in your life, are you prepared to make one bold step into the future?

We still have space on our EARTH AND AUTUMN ODYSSEYS as well, so be sure not to miss them.

 

In Life and light

Lifelight Astrology – Full Moon 14th February – Lets Fall in Love

Lets fall in love

Well, Valentines Day’s  here, perfectly coinciding with a beautiful full moon in Leo, which just happens to be in the sign of romance, celebration and grand gesture. Leo also happens to rule the heart and connects us to our deepest desires, creativity and inner light.

So… it’s a wonderful time to give and receive love – as we’ve been reminded of for weeks at every turn – it’s like a heart / rose / cuddly toy hurricane out there!  But setting the consumerism aside, let’s use this opportunity to connect with the real symbolism of it all.

Let us ask ourselves this Full Moon… this Valentines Day…

  • What is love…. Actually?
  • Is Love a verb?
  • Is Love a vibration? – see the shape the word love makes on water above – Dr Emoto
  • What does the commandment – “Love one another” really mean
  • Who do you love?
  • How do you love?
  • How unconditional is your love?

The way I see it, pure unconditional love is not a sentiment. It  is the most powerful vibration, force, energy, in the entire Universe and it emanates from the human heart.

In my experience when we’re able to bring ourselves into the present moment and drop into our hearts (fall in love)  we feel truly connected and at peace, regardless of what’s happening “out there”.  Automatically, we start to flow and vibrate with, rather than against everything else.  (Click  here for details on my next Love Mandala workshop).  It’s when we’re disconnected from our hearts, that we separate ourselves, resist what is and experience suffering.

Speaking of suffering, it might not be all gorgeous red roses for some of us at the moment. Good Old Saturn’s firmly plonked himself in Scorpio and is squaring our beautiful romantic Full Moon! That means there’s a good chance that some of our deepest issues and perceptions about love (or lack thereof) may be stirred up in the next few days. Those tough old thorns might very well poke through the surface and demand attention, like hungry children … lack of self worth,  abandonment, rejection, aloneness, fear, doubt… 

All we can do is invite them in with kindness and ask what they have to teach (Saturn is the teacher, after all).  Ask yourself how you can show your hungry child some love. What is the most loving thing you can do for you? It might be to simply get some rest. Lots of us are feeling more tired than normal. When you consider that the Sun represents our physical Vitality and  Saturn represents limitation, it figures that the combination will be Limited vitality / energy … so take some time to chill and kick back a bit. 

And ask yourself – can you love yourself and others, thorns and all; can you can accept yourself, others and your life situation as it is right now… in this moment?

Love is such a big word, such a big subject, that I’ve decided to dedicate a whole month to it. Starting tomorrow, I will do my best to post something interesting on Love on my Facebook page every day – It would be wonderful if you would participate, share and help to lift our personal and planetary vibration to one of Love.

Let’s fall in love this month

When we live in the vibration of love, we express compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, respect, generosity, joy, peace—all that inspires, empowers and enhances life.

This Valentine’s day,  please spread the love further than your lover/husband/wife. Let the other people in your life know they are loved and appreciated too. 

With love
