Spring Equinox - Awaken the Warrior Within
On Monday, March 20th is Spring Equinox – this means the Sun crosses the earth's equator, making day and night of equal length everywhere.
With the Sun moving into the cardinal sign of Aries, this event officially brings about SPRING. This is when the new astrological year starts and Mother Earth awakens from her winter’s sleep.
What does this mean on a metaphysical level?
As nature is reborn, so are we… We see plants sprouting, animals getting excited - we can feel that new inspiration and love is in the air.
The chart of this year’s Spring Equinox shows a GRAND CROSS between Uranus, Pluto, Jupiter and Vesta. A Grand Cross is a constellation in the sky that brings about challenges but also tremendous potential for growth. With all four planets being in cardinal signs, the New Year starts with a BAM of energy and power that will catapult us onto the next level. Uranus and Pluto both bring release of the old, whereas Jupiter expands into new territories and Vesta helps us invest in a cause we can truly stand behind.
This year will be an interesting year for humanity. Big change is on the horizon, old structures will fall apart, and fresh wind will come into places that have been stagnant.
With 2017 being a Number 1 year (2+0+1+7=10=1), Numerology confirms change, action and initiation of new beginnings for this year. This is the beginning of a new 9 year cycle until 2026 brings a new start. How we use this tremendous potential of new beginnings is up to us.
How can you use this Spring Equinox for your Highest Good?
While we were dreaming throughout the season of Pisces, now in Aries is the time to get started. Put your dreams into action. Do something you haven’t done before, or something you’ve been wanting to try out. When we change our routine we are able to see the world in a new light - with childlike wonder. And that gives us more empowerment and inspiration and starts a new cycle of things coming our way. As long as we do the things we've been doing, we receive what we've been receiving. Remember that, if you want your life to change, you just need to change one daily habit and a new cycle begins.
Awaken the warrior within you.
You are strong, brave and possess infinite powers. No one can tell you how to live your life just like you can't tell others how to live theirs. Speak your truth, even if it is anger that is inside. Often, in the spiritual community, we believe that we can't show our anger because we need to stand above lower emotions and stay positive all the time. The consequence of the need to stay positive all the time is that we ignore our authentic emotions, we judge them as 'bad'. However, there is no good or bad, there is just growth and experience (read more about it here). And as long as we ignore our "lower" emotions, they become stronger until they break out (often in physical illness or accidents). Now with the Sun in Aries it is time to awaken your inner warrior, to stand up for yourself and what you love, to speak your truth and live your life.
I have the right to express all my feelings, positive or negative, in a manner that will not harm others.
I have the right to feel angry at someone I love and express this in a responsible manner.
I have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
I have the right to determine my own priorities.
I have the right to ask for what I want.
Let go of the old…
In order to make fresh starts in our lives we need to let go of people, habits, things or situations that no longer serve our Highest Good. Stay strong in your convictions, and follow your instincts. If you feel drained every time you interact with a particular person, speak your truth and/or reduce the contact. If you feel weighed down by certain material things, let them go (spring cleaning!) and/or give them to someone who cherishes them. Reflect on what triggers certain emotions inside of you and how you deal with them. If there is a habit of ignoring lower emotions, running away, distancing yourself, avoiding conflicts, blaming others, distracting yourself with drugs, foods, work or other addictions, ... ask yourself if these habits are bringing you what you desire in life or if they are holding you back from truly connecting to your true self. Shapeshift, try out different ways of coping with anger, sadness, stress, love, etc. See what changes. It's time to experiment.
Focus on the things you want to manifest.
Where attention goes, energy flows. Whatever we put our minds to, we’re creating. You are the co-creator of your life. You are God energy. When you let others treat you disrespectfully, your inner warrior is listening. When you talk bad about yourself, your inner warrior is listening. Protect yourself, stand up for yourself, for you are strong and powerful. No longer accept people and situations that are going against your authentic self. Notice when you do something to please others while hurting your own truth. This behavior is a vicious cycle. By trying to be a martyr and give, give, give to others, we don't see how important it is to take care of ourselves and we store anger and resentment in our subconscious.
If you seek love, give yourself that love. If you seek empowerment, give yourself that empowerment. Look into the mirror and be your biggest fan. Be proud of yourself. Give yourself massages. Give yourself play time. Don't put the fulfillment of your needs into the hands of others. However, if you need help with something, remember that you have the right to ask for what you want.
Take responsibility for your life and change it if necessary. Any transformations you have been wanting to do, now is the time to manifest. You got this. You are in the flow with the Universe. Get up and get going.
I'm wishing you a wonderful new astrological year!
A fresh start, new inspirations and especially love, light and fun!
Remember, in the end, life is a game.
Or as Alan Watts says:
"Life is a musical and you're supposed to sing and dance while the music is being played."
Here is a great inspirational video about this:
Enjoy this wonderful new era of your life.
