“Cobalt Flight” by Shannon Troxler
I hope you had some semblance of a rebirth in the previous Cycle. March brought a welcome shift as we exited the demolition phase of the Plutonian portal of 2020. Our New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aquarius continues this good trend as Pluto’s reconstructive phase takes hold. The New Moon is conjunct the benefic planets of Venus and Neptune and is aligned with Markab of Pegasus, a star of high accomplishment and mastery. One question to ask when Neptune is involved is this: How do we discern the difference between a fantasy based in delusion or denial or a dream of our future life that is realistically based on our deepest desires and creative potential? This may be something to contemplate or make decisions about in the coming four weeks.
There are a few other key planetary events in the coming four weeks. The blessing of Spring Equinox in our Northern Hemisphere arrives on March 20 at 3:37 am MDT. On March 25, in a moment of reverie honoring a portal of cosmic love, Venus leaves her Morning Star phase to become the Evening Star, setting in motion new beginnings for the coming nine months. On March 26, Mars makes a once-every-two-year conjunction with the North Lunar Node of your future self, another sign of forward momentum. The March 28th Full Moon takes place in sidereal Virgo/Pisces and is as fiercely focused as our New Moon is — the Sun exactly conjuncts the magical healer, Chiron. May your month be filled with healing grace and a sense of centered calm amidst life’s uncertainties.
I am very grateful to share these delightful, vibrant avian paintings of Shannon Troxler for this Spring Equinox post. Please view more of Shannon’s magical and extraordinary art here. Thank you, Shannon.

This may be something you want to contemplate or make decisions about in the coming month. As Venus is about appreciating yourself in a kind and loving way, valuing who you are, appreciating your quirky self and the unique gifts you bring to the world, make self-love part of this month’s focus.
