Harvesting Dreams

Harvesting Dreams
When the lay of the land lies ripe,
Pendulous the moon,
Delicious golden weight.
Journey from dark birth
Headlong toward the Grail
Daughter of darkness/daughter of light
Hanging horizonless
Reflected Consort to her mate
His light, her soul.
She ripples the blue-black vastness
Covering fields, orchards, forest, pasture
Making sacred, wheat, corn, apple, grape.
Transformative elixir reflecting
What is, what is not
Her dreams ready the harvest.

THE PASSIONATE BIRTH OF SPRING   March 18-25

 

 

THEMES

  • The Birth of Spring is all about its alignment with the Super Full Moon, becoming a Blue Moon, and oh by the way, snugging into the Super Galactic Center.

 

THE STORY

As the world turns, this might be a propitious time to ask, “What sort of a cell-tower am I constructing?” What am I tuned into? Where do I block transmission? Will I get pinged when Martians land? The first degrees of the Aires/Libra Full Moon radiates in the perfect balance of the Equinox on Wed. and Thurs. The chart for this event reveals three coming three months of Wowsa. It’s all about the relationship. Let us hope that the Libran ideas of fair share, and equitable balance, as well as the Aries’ courage, fulfill upcoming experiences.

It has been 19 years since both a Full Moon and the Vernal Equinox came together to meld and mine spring birth. The Equinox chart with the Full Moon on the first house Ascendant of the US chart, offers Americans an emotionally-high spring, one in which shepherding foreign partnerships and allies is critical. The same goes for us personally. Unfortunately, the muddled Retrograde Mercury in Pisces, closing in on Neptune, its ruler, makes truth, lies and information difficult to discern. Take more time to suss out details in anything important. Do not assume that what you hear, or see, is correct.

Prepare to be rocked by the uncovering of more scandal. Sadly, you don’t need an Astrologer to tell you that. Balance the endless upheaval and scandal by creating sacred ritual. The Equinox is one of the four great turnings in the year. Make it a sacred moment! Do it for yourself and for the world. The perfect balancing offers opportunity to release the past, especially as the Moon sits only two degree from the Super Galactic Center, which is a powerful black hole sucking in everything. Like any good vacuum job, it prepares and clears for future transmission and intention.

With Venus and Mars as Full Moon rulers, emotional surges abound. The Equinox, always set for first degree of Aires, known as the ‘Aires Point, is a sensitized place in the zodiac, where often the public eye recognizes the event. Venus and Mars in any combination stir the pot of passion. Choose how you wish to use it. Be creative! Be committed! Be in love with your life! With Jupiter’s sextile to Venus, it’s time to be a luv-bugg, and pay attention to the ‘bugs.’ Know that this Full Moon at 00 degrees of Libra/Aires, is the first of two Full Moon’s in this energetic signature, making it an unusual Blue Moon. On April 19, the Libra/Aires face-off is at final 29 degrees. Consider this a cycle to snuggle in and create life with greater zest and harmony. Love the one you’re with, and the stranger waiting to be your new friend. Strengthen alliances, and then care for them, as you wish to be cared for.

 

****

YOUR BIRTHDAY YEAR: You always celebrate as a vibrant Equinox re-birth, but this year you are ‘reborn’ into your relationships, particularly the one with Soul Self.   With the Super Moon perigee/closest to earth, AND hand in hand with the Super Galactic Center, expect your old world to fracture and flow, letting in new, unknown light for healing and greater power. The strong Aires accents make you more of a warrior in your quest for balance and harmony. Indeed creating balance is a cornerstone of this year. For you birthday-celebrants, it’s important to take quiet time at the Equinox to make a sacred pact to give birth to your heart’s desires.

YOUR PRACTICE: Time on the mat needs to hold a space for ritual, small or large. Set intention to carry you through, if not 108 Sun Salutations, at least five. As you inhale and exhale, release the old and invite the new. Do your Warrior Poses as a true Warrior, perfectly balanced between defense and offense. Find true center. Stand in Tadasana, sending roots down into the earth, keeping you grounded through emotional storms. As you sequence between Asanas, grow more creative and ‘partner’ both the outgoing Asana and the incoming Asana with equal grace and attention. Let them support one another through breath, as well as attention to their connection.
