“Recent X Class Solar Flare” photograph from StarWalk
Have you discovered the StarWalk app? If you love the stars and heavenly mystery as I do, purchase it now. This picture landed in my inbox, alerting me to a recent stunning flare emitted from our Sun that is hitting the Earth now as I complete this week’s post. I was dragging my feet, puttering, yet I also knew it was because I was waiting for something to shift, or something to reveal itself. As I have said, I can’t always post on calendar clock time.
You may be experiencing either an afterglow or an aftermath from last week’s momentous turning points. These cosmological energies continue to integrate within us, around us in the final days of this dying lunar cycle, completing Thursday. Then we burst into our next New SolLunar Eclipse cycle the same day as Spring Equinox in our Northern Hemisphere. “Burst” is a remarkably rich word. Here are a few definitions: To break open from inside by growing too large to be held. To break suddenly and violently apart, spilling the contents. To be so full so as to almost break open. To feel a very strong or irrepressible emotion or impulse. To suddenly begin doing something as an expression of strong feeling. May you feel the coming burst of energy in positive, activating ways.
Here is some good wisdom from my sidereal colleague and friend Nick Anthony Fiorenza from his LunarPlanner ~ http://www.lunarplanner.com/. Here he describes the significance of a Solar Eclipse:
“Solar eclipses offer opportunity to redefine concepts of self and the roles we play in the world, or how we articulate ourselves in life. They are about shifting octaves in the nature of our self-perception and self-expression, and addressing issues that keep us from doing so. They can invite a new beginning, way of life, or new way of participating in life.
Eclipse lunar cycles are ideal times to set new six-month goals to create personal change in our lives, not necessarily on the solar or lunar eclipse, but based upon the realizations we have throughout the eclipse lunar cycles.:
And here Nick describes the galactic theme of this next SolLunar cycle beginning March 20:
“Our Equinox Total Solar Eclipse lunar cycle, the first cycle after the final Uranus-Pluto square, sets an entirely new energetic compared to the transitional process occurring from when the square started in 2012 through the last lunar cycle of February 18, 2015. This lunar cycle fully engages the action quarter of the 138-year Uranus-Pluto cycle that began in the mid-1960s. This lunar cycle impels progressive action to create a new beginning from the revelations gained over the last few years, especially revelations regarding the miss-use of power by big-business and political plutocrats, and the increasing economic disparity. Pluto’s multi-year passage through Sagittarius also impelled a shift from “money is power” to “knowledge is power,” the self-empowerment movement that fuels the increasing rebellious response (Uranus square) to the old-world plutocratic-driven paradigm.
This lunar cycle brings attention to our longer-term interests and desires, which is also an underlying current for this entire year due to the December 2014 Solstice New Moon occurring on the Gate of God of Earth’s Precessional Cross (and just after the sixth Uranus-Pluto geocentric square). It brings emphasis to radically transform our fundamental ways of living and our material values and pursuits to establish sustainability based from spiritual ethics and a mature sense of morality for all life. It impels us to elevate and equilibrate the conditions of living amongst all people. It is now clear to a much wider populous that the failing economic and political systems do not serve the awakening new consciousness on Earth—innovative revolution determined for solution is at hand. This lunar cycle also brings impetus to change how we are applying our primal life force and are using the fundamental resources that sustain our lives.”
Thank you Nick.

Tue March 17
Uranus/Pluto square parting ways: We have now just emerged into this next wave of transformation. Please re-read last week’s Signposts to recall what just hit our planetary Field. In essence, we now have about 40 years to integrate and implement what was set in motion from June 2012 to March 2015. You might feel a bit fried, literally, in your nervous system, or be experiencing odd body symptoms, aches and pains. All part of the upgrade, or as my friend Carol Mann ~ http://www.yourcosmiccafe.com/ ~ says, the recalibration. Drink tons of water, allow yourself extra rest, and know you are not alone in the challenging energies moving through our cells, calling us to new awakening, greater vitality.
Moon in Capricorn sextile Mars in Pisces: The resilient determined Capricorn Moon makes a pleasant sextile to action-oriented Mars in compassionate Pisces. Those of you who are emotionally reserved are more inclined to share you heart and emotions with others. And a great day to put your goals toward our greater awakening into some form of action.
Wed March 18
Neptune/Mercury conjunction in Aquarius: The annual fusion (the energy of an astrological conjunction) of Mercury ~ your mental Field ~ with Neptune ~ higher imagination/compassionate ideals ~ in sidereal Aquarius ~ humanitarian concerns/community involvement ~ is a wondrous alignment for our Planetary Field. It can truly uplift our thoughts to more compassionate realms and futuristic insights. Open and you will receive your own download of cosmic, creative insight.
Moon/Neptune/Mercury conjunction: As the day progress, the fading crescent of Moon further activates this conjunction. The Moon is in the Balsamic phase, which means old and wise. Honor your own deep wisdom garnered through hard struggles, life’s challenges, continuing to regain faith in things still to come.
Thu March 19
SolLunar cycle completing: Today’s marks the completion of this last cosmic cycle that brought so much intensity and growth into our lives. Please rest and give gratitude to yourself, for your remarkable strength, unending courage, celestial grace as you navigated your own challenges and awakenings.
Moon/Chiron conjunction in Aquarius: Sometimes this alignment can bring up vulnerabilities and honesty in our deepest friendships, manifest as a feeling of deep woundedness you wish could finally be gone. Yet it also creates an opening of your heart to strive to be more open, discovering that really is the best way to live.
Venus in Aries square Juno in Cancer: The square aspect can create a temporary tension between an individual’s needs within a core relationship and the desires of the other partner. Let the fight lead to an honest conversation.
Fri March 20
New Pisces SolLunar cycle: Please re-read my opening statement to these Signposts addressing the theme of this particular new beginning. It is big, it is bold, yet subtle as well, in the sense that it will be imperative you listen to your inner stream of wisdom, your well of insight, your emotional aquifer of truth that lives within you. Not sure what I mean by that? Perhaps you can explore this in the coming four weeks.
Moon/South Node conjunction: This the aspect that makes this New Moon also a Solar Eclipse. When the Moon ~ symbolic of our past/past lives/dying Self ~ aligns with the South Node ~ also indicative of our past/past lives/old habits ~ we are given a chance to truly take a leap to move beyond the energies of our history, honoring them, giving thanks, yet moving on.
Sat March 21
Moon/Mars/Uranus conjunction in Pisces: This energetic holds a bit of a spike and sharpness, tempered somewhat by the energy of watery Pisces. It’s about being direct, truthful, while also being kind in how you deliver an honest blow that inspires new action and activation. This might be in regards to your relationship to yourself or with another. Bursting forth, indeed.
Mercury in Aquarius quincunx Jupiter in Cancer: I love it when Cancer and Aquarius come into deeper communion via the planetary aspects like today. Cancer rules our deepest tribal affiliations and loyalties, while Aquarius is the commitment to One Family, One Humanity. While Mercury is transiting Aquarius, it can tend to open the close-minded humans to consider a different way of viewing an intransigent situation. Let’s hope.
Venus in Aries quincunx Saturn in Scorpio: There may be a tug and pull and challenge in your love life with this aspect. Aries longs for individual freedom and choice while Scorpio desires merging and even control. This might also play out in the financial arena…ie…how do you spend your shared resources, honoring everyone’s needs.
Sun March 22
Moon/Venus conjunction in Aries: Sunset beauty alert! May the sky be cloudless this evening so you can witness this most beautiful and inspiring alignment of the newly hatched crescent Moon and always bright shining Venus. Wish upon these stars, aligning in initiatory Aries. Hope and faith incarnate, this alignment.
Mercury in Aquarius sextile Pluto in Sagittarius: Your human Mind ~ Mercury ~ forms a stimulating sextile to investigative Pluto in futuristic Sagittarius . This aspect is best used to elevate your thoughts, your desires to the realm of greater possibility. Go beyond your doubts of yore and dream bigger. What would you have your future be? Today is a day to set those intentions that in motion.
Mars departs Pisces: Activate your newly purchased Star Walk app, hold it up to the heavens, and watch Mars leave Pisces and enter sidereal Aries. Now we will really be pressured to burst forth in the coming weeks. Exciting times ahead.
Thank you SUN for that lovely eruption that furthers our planetary awakening.
