This past two weeks New Moon cycle moved us through an incredible pile-up of Aquarian energy – the archetype of the Gamechanger, the Truth Sayer, the bold cold mic-drop. Aquarius initiates the impulse to break free from the past at all cost and with five planets there, including the Mercury Retrograde cycle (now direct,) moving forward, beyond, and even up up and away has been the momentum.
Essentially this time is all about enhancing the quality of our lives, by clearing away all the things possible that may be in the way of that bigger and better life experience.
Mercury retrograde is infamous for throwing a monkey wrench into our plans and this time around joining forces with Venus in her own tension (square) with Mars, it’s been accentuating (or over exaggerating) the need for all kinds of confrontational conversations within our relationships to self and the other.
The need to separate from or the need to commit to… which one is it? This is a cycle of life-changing decisions with so much potential to open up unknown possibilities for the future.
Mars and Venus represent our most personal instinctual desires and what we want and need to feel good and alive from day to day. With Venus in a last quarter square closing in to culminate her cycle with Mars the potential for our wounds, pains, shadows and unmet desires and needs have been seeking a space to surface and to be seen and resolved. Their complete cycle will come to a final conclusion this July so there is still plenty of time to realize and remedy what has been coming up these days to become aware of in regard to the deep song of your heart.
As Mercury now edges within two degrees to join Jupiter by the end of this week, in the uber brainy sign of Aquarius, our neurons are being hyper-stimulated, and the synapses are firing! This is to say that there is a heavy influence on the mind right now. It can manifest as clarity, insight, awakening, higher perspective or knowing, and for some also nervous breakdown, mental breakdown, overstimulation with symptoms like insomnia and anxiety.
It’s a very electrical energy like a thunder and lightning storm and can be both unnerving and enthralling all at once.
With the power of the Saturn square Uranus transit that is defining the theme of the entire year of “2021”, in its first of three joining moments during this month and into next, it is like the two Generals are standing firmly in the background of each of our lives overlooking every move and decision we make. Yikes! Not so fun, however necessary in the seeming impasse we have arrived to. But it is more of a standoff than a dead-end. We have options and possibilities and that is what the Generals are there to remind us. We must each choose and take action in some way to forward our lives to create the changes we are all dreaming of for this world.
They are like guides holding us accountable in this moment because it’s time and they are asking simply “What’s going to stay and what’s going to go? Choose wisely.”
What will we leave behind? What will remain as a foundation of support? What will we take a chance to let go of in hopes of a brighter future to come? What will we risk to step into the unknown and embrace a new life and new self yet unrealized?
No one says it louder than Aquarius ~ “Be the Change.”
