Spring Equinox 2021

Happy Vernal Equinox All!

With Mars is in Gemini, in separating sextile to the Aries Ingress Sun, this is a time to move forward with our desires and initiate/take action on them.

This analysis is for North and South American Chart (Europe and Australia have different rising and thus planets sit in different houses).

Mars (and Mercury) rules this new season, and is traveling with a few friends: our collective True North (gemini NN) and the Moon in Gemini (how we will assimilate information and our emotions).Gemini/Mercury reflects the people—and their emotions, impatience and anger.

This season will be a time of speaking out, even acting out thus it is imperative to create Vastu cures OR set intention for our Equinox chart(s).

Saturn in Aquarius (new rules) is trine (ease and grace) to Mars, so this is a good time to initiate what we’ve been dreaming up since the winter solstice, setting the foundations of our futures.

What are you ready to take action on? What words, actions and higher vision inspires you now?

Mercury in Pisces is ruling all the Gemini, so be sure to take time to listen deeper, behind the emotional and watery layers…to be clear what is being said and shared (from people and higher realms).

Mercury and Uranus meet up once again, this time in sextile bringing us the opportunity to merge higher mind and logic to create something fresh and new (Aries Sun ingress).
Mercury square Mars, disagreements, quarreling and too much talking all at once is abundant!!! Hahah have fun, and remember to breathe

Jupiter on the Ascendant (north and South America) is like having a guardian Angel watching over us, Pluto in the 11th wants to raise hell to break up the collective funk, and Pisces in the 1st house will want to step gingerly into this new season (Pisces/Neptune also rules immunity/viruses).

And with Venus still in Pisces, she bestows her immense blessings on us via Oneness—ultimate Love, soothing the intensity of the Aries Ingress, and Mars Moon conjunction, softening the harshness that is playing out, relative to the patriarchal themes (racism, elitism), and helping us break free from Virgo/Pisces martyrdom and co-dependency.
Additionally Sun conjunct Chiron in Aries—the wounded masculine will be reeling, but tempered by the presence of Ceres (Mother Earth archetype) this season…hopefully this combo doesn’t express via fires and agriculture (food supply).

Also Venus with the Aries planets in the 2nd house, this season will be hot sexually, lots of procreation going on.

Uranus in the 3rd—inventions and new discoveries, in the field of science and research are bound to come forth, and impulse to learn about quantum everything.

Mars on the IC in the 4th—lots of feelings and tempers flare relative to homelands and Mother Earth themes, including women, children, family and protecting them.

All and all the chart has lots of movement

Venus 8th Gate – Earth Star Chakra

We are in the final gate of the VENUS MORNING STAR, the 8th Gate. The 8th Gate correlates to Death-by-intent, and our Earth Star Chakra.

The EARTH STAR CHAKRA sits below our feet, it literally anchors us to Gaia. It is part of the etheric body. This last Gate before the transmutation underworld journey, is a culmination point of release (more about this below).

With all the AQUARIAN planets (6!) and asteroid Pallas Athene, we will need to create extra-intentional time to stay grounded. It’s a good idea to unplug from technology as much as possible, limit caffeine and stimulants, and meditate and/or be in nature–deep in nature. Like put your feet in the mud (earthing), and walk where and sit where there is silence.

Why? because the energy pouring in from the Aquarian planets want to bestow a brilliant gift to you, but you’ll only receive the complete package if you’re grounded (etherically and physically).

Vesta and Neptune are in a dance with each other to find the middle of the road. VESTA in Virgo–her home sign–asks us to keep our inner hearth lit (for the world), and to discern what is real and what is illusion, and to devote our daily lives to our highest visions/goals and to make them manifest. NEPTUNE deals with Unity, Oneness, Christ Consciousness, as well as Lies, Deceit, Illusion, Alcoholism, Lack of Boundaries.

To do this we have loads of help. Six planets and one asteroid in Aquarius. Aquarius is all about individuation, brilliance, break-free from limitation, high-ideals, the higher mind, hopes, and humanitarism, as well as elitism, being ostracized, trauma, long-term memory, and fragmentation.

The mega-Aquarian line-up is setting the tone for a new-world, and is helping us to manifest our highest aspirations. Learn about your Earth Star Chakra, nourish groundedness, so to be a conduit–an anchor, to receive all the SKY GOD is sending your way.

This time is additionally heightened because MERCURY is RETROGRADE. Mercury retrograde is not to be feared, but to be honored. This is a highly intuitive time due to the numerous aspects Mercury is making during his retreat time.

There are numerous bi-quintile aspects between Vesta and the Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Eris, and the North Node and South Nodes in Gemini/Sagittarius (both ruled by Mercury and Jupiter). Vesta can literally represent our Earth Star right now and help us anchor in all the light pouring in from Aquarius, if we heed her call to fire the hearth flame (our connection to Gaia, and our service to the Unity Consciousness).

BIQUINTILE (Gibbous phase, ie Yin Virgo): Creative transformation socially, ego can adjust to be most useful.

This Gate, on the eve of the New Moon, asks us to release all that we have stored up, if we haven’t been releasing all along, during this last 8-month Venus Morning Star cycle (since last June).

The Venus Gates are intentional monthly points in time, that can be worked with consciously to tune into the galactic, rose-light beauty she (Venus) bestows to us consistently, over and over again.
