A Slice of Heaven - Spring 2011 by Lola BabalonThu, March 24, 2011 - 7:08 AM
You can help by thinking good thoughts, as the synchronistic workings of the universe click into gear to get me on the road again. You can also help by referring any potential clients my way, or by booking a session in person or on the phone.
Much love and gratitude for this adventure unfolding.
Read on for the astrological update.
What a wild ride this year has been already, and what exciting times are still ahead. Every day comes as a gift, a teaching or a revelation. Earth changes, quantum leaps, collective wake-up calls are happening all over. And: “You ain’t seen nothing yet.“ Fear not, trust your instincts, pay attention and let go. The unity of “We are One”, outlasts and outshines the polarizing “Us versus Them“.
The spring equinox enters with a bang! The Sun conjuncts Uranus, the awakener, revolutionary, de-conditioner. Much impulsive, restless, antsy, and driven energy to go around. Moon conjuncts Saturn in Libra: here the two parental figures are in debate: the old vs. the new, right vs. wrong, natural law versus greed and corruption.
7 planets are in cardinal signs, talk about gung-ho energy. The other 3 are in transpersonal Pisces and Aquarius. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and whether it is an adventure, or a tragedy depends largely on attitude.
What to do? Breathe deeply, wake up from your slumber, support each other and do the best you can, every day. Be bold courageous and outspoken. Act now!
Venus moves into Pisces, generates tender feelings and compassion. Followed by a tense and busy week, with plenty of confrontational aspects.
Mercury goes retrograde on Wednesday. It stays for 2 months in the hot headed sign of the ram, rubbing it in.
April Fool’s Day comes with another bang, as Mars enters its own sign of Aries.
Watch out for moderates suddenly discovering their passion about things.
This much fire energy requires a counterbalance. As in: apply water. Drink lots of it, take long soaks in the tub or brisk dips in the ocean.
Sun Apr 3
The New Moon has Mars conjunct Uranus, among 6 planets in Aries in opposition to Saturn in Libra. Ouch! That’s a lot of revolution versus one single minded, conservative voice of reason. Look out for clashes between young and old ways of looking at things.
Neptune enters Pisces
Halleluja! The big diffuser, unifier has returned home. Time to sweat your prayers and birth a whole new religion.
Mars squares Pluto, Mercury conjunct Jupiter
Indicates conflicts of interest, bold strategic moves and a new round of agreements.
Full Moon 28* Libra
Places an acute emphasis on personal relationships. Fairness, balance, peace and justice topics are on the table.
This week Mercury and Mars oppose Saturn, intense negotiations and potential for military action.
Sun enters Taurus, Sextile Neptune,
A good thing! Taurus provides resiliency and stick-to-it-ness. Time to come back down to earth, to seek comfort, and grounding. Feel encouraged to lounge, breathe, reflect, honor the body and the flesh.
Venus enters Aries, like a healing balm for the battle scarred warriors.
The end of the month has multiple aspects indicating high tension. Expect a lot of people on the move.
New Moon 12* Taurus. Good for remembering ones resources, going inward, coming home. The fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio) provide stability and centering for the rest of folks.
Mothers Day promises another big one. Mega aspects between the Moon in sensitive Cancer, and the four feisty planets in Aries provide plenty of tension, emotional breakthroughs and mischief. The Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra) are advised to take it easy, if they can.
Mars enters Taurus
It’s in a powerful, primal driven spot. Good for physical strength, building projects and gardening. Not known for it’s delicacy or finesse, more like a bull in a China-shop.
Venus & Mercury conjunct Jupiter, which can transform a tense, or selfish situation into a cooperative one. Instead of competition we can now have agreement.
Full Moon 26* Scorpio
Passions are at an all time, mid-week high, enjoy!
Comes with plenty of creativity, verbal exchange and a rather wild imagination.
May 21 Sun enters Gemini
Where Taurus is solid, earthy and grounded, Gemini is mobile, playful, and light footed. It provides a counterpoint of ease and adaptability. It’s a multi-faceted, ambidextrous and curious sign, that loves to chat and socialize.
Venus conjuncts Mars in the sensuous sign of Taurus.
Another match of the most ancient and powerful of players, the ever sacred mating dance.
This aspect continues over the Memorial Day weekend, and indicates much fun for Topangadays. Watch out for frisky fellows, and luscious ladies, on the prowl.
Solar eclipse, New Moon 11* Gemini, Eclipses bring intense emotions, especially for the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) These can experience major changes in purpose and direction. The Sun trines Saturn, good for expansion, diligence, hard work and focus.
Mercury enters Gemini, it’s home turf. Time to lighten up already, as little bit of humor goes a long way.
Neptune SR (stations retrograde)
Watch out for UFO’s, space cadets, and major dreams, insights or revelations.
Jupiter enters Taurus
Shifts the collective focus toward resources and earth friendly technologies. It may be a bit late in the game, but necessity is the mother of invention, and Jupiter will be here or a year. Also expands the tantric perspective on life. The one that remembers that pleasure heals, and it’s okay to have lots of it.
Venus enters Gemini, squares Neptune
Not recommended for weddings or first dates… Do something frivolous instead.
Lunar Eclipse 24* Sagittarius, conjunct the Galactic center makes a strong incentive to align with ones higher sense of purpose. Every day, every hour, every moment, every choice counts in the big scheme of things.
Find the love and beauty in each moment.
