The sun just entered Aries, there’s a full moon in Libra, Mercury is still retrograde, and it’s the Spring Equinox! There’s plenty of comsic energy to work with over the next few days, so let’s dig a little deeper.
The first theme that comes to mind with the changing of the seasons is “Spring Cleaning”. Not just donating old clothes to Goodwill or Marie Kondo-ing the hell out of your house, although that could very well be a part of it.
It’s about delving deeper than just physical clutter. It’s an ideal time to ask yourself questions, such as, “What do I need to clean up within myself in order to move forward? Are there parts of myself (mind, body, or soul) that I’ve been neglecting? In what areas of my life can I bring more love?”.
Mercury retrograde is not to be feared. Full moons are not to be feared. They are simply a call to honestly look within and see what needs to be cleaned up.
When we work with their energy instead of resisting it, we are gifted their cosmic power which propels us forward.
Use this time to purify your mind, body and soul. Once you do, you may just find your purpose and passion becomes a lot more clear.
Now, about the sun and moon’s opposing energies. When it comes to Libra, think harmony, beauty, and balance. With Aries, think passion, individualism, and manifestation. I like to think of these two polar energies in terms of relating to others.
Libra socially unbalanced is a complete people pleaser because it wants peace at all costs. Aries unbalanced isn’t afraid to go to war for what it wants, doesn’t give a damn what others think, sometimes to the point of extreme selfishness.
Obviously, either extreme is unhealthy for our relationships. This opposition asks us to set boundaries with intention. We can hold compassion in our hearts for someone and still set a boundary with them. We can be of service to others without sacrificing ourselves. We can love and forgive someone while choosing not to associate with them in order to better care for ourselves.
In sum, take extra good care of yourself, don’t take any shit, and give more grace than you feel like.
