SuperMoon Spring Equinox with Uranus in Aries ~ March 11

What a week! Solar X-flares, volcanoes, a massive earthquake (and lots of smaller ones), PLUS a mega tsunami to add to the 4.5 billion people on the planet already suffering from some kind of disaster. Rescue teams do their best. Lightworkers too; please join me sending healing prayers of love to pacify the elements, overcome obstacles and eliminate fear, to the people of Japan, and the world over. _/\_♥ॐ. 

Everyone has been wondering: was it the SuperMoon which caused Japan’s 8.9 earthquake and tsunami? My answer is, well, um, yes it could be (but that’s not even half the story), even though it’s not exactly the correct definition of a SuperMoon (new or full closest to the earth, of which there are 5 or 6 every year); this current lunation culminates in said SuperMoon, and only one day before the Spring Equinox, the starting point of the Zodiac.  

The chart of Japan’s Earthquake shows Thor’s Hammer, with the Moon and oceanic Neptune crashing down onto earthy Saturn.  The last of three oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn form the tight axis, like an iron rod holding Thor’s hammer, ready to crash into earth and ocean reminding us to overcome fear (Jupiter in Aries), rest in our centre (Saturn in Libra), and be responsible custodians who really do take care of the earth.  Jupiter as planet of truth, is still in hard aspect to secretive Pluto, and with Pluto's influence to hide it may not be entirely clear exactly what has happened for some time to come. But there are always those who sense the truth, and are able to rise the challenge to this intense kind of energy to transform, generate light, and evolve - big style!

Adding influence, however, is a negative fixed star (Sheat) that implies flooding with the last degree of Pisces, just as Uranus, planet of shock and awe, jolted into explosive Aries March 11th, where it stays for 7 years. Generally speaking, Uranus is unpredictable and chaotic during change, capable of extreme and radical beaviour. Its also the planet of genius, the New Age, and the kindred spirits. According to esoteric astrology, Uranus is the hierarchical ruler for heroic Aries. This means the collective competitive ego will change. How this manifests over these coming years will depend upon the degree of a leader’s awareness (please Goddess!). Good to know the higher vibration of Uranus has the potential to imbibe such wisdom, and in Aries it also provides courage to be mindful, especially when moving into new ventures with an altruistic heart. Uranus in Aries also recognises the value of each unique individual's contribution in the process of humanity's evolution, so that all beings are happy.

Cast your mind back to last spring, when we had a taste of what the thoughtless and heavier vibration of Uranus leaving the last degrees of the zodiac and moving into Uranus in Aries was like. As shown, this can be a fast-moving accidental and head-strong energy; and the Deepwater Horizon explosion took place (the same time as Saturn went back into the last degree of Virgo (which is the same as this full Moon) and Chiron went into Pisces). While senstive people held hands across the sands, oil spewed untold pollution into the sea along with unknown quantities of corexit, a detergent so strong that we don’t know long-term effects upon us, or any living creature in or out of the sea. 

Uranium is also named after Uranus – It's obviously time for the nuclear industry to really look at what kind of energy we ought to invest in. But who among us will be the brave Spritual Warrior to leave behind the old outworn paradigm and impliment a daring new vision? Interestingly, the Japanese nuclear reactors are now 40 years old - that's two Jupiter-Saturn cycles, one and a bit Saturn cycle AND a Uranus opposition. One could say Japan's nuclear industry is going through a midlife crisis.  This midlife change is something we all go though (in various forms), from the age of 38-42, when transiting Uranus opposes the natal Uranus, and the need to radically alter one's lifestyle in order to create and impliment the freedom to explore our own uniqueness becomes paramount during the second half of life (as symbolised by so many marriages, jobs and contracts that break down at this age).

I think/hope/pray that by the time Jupiter has rollicked its' way through Aries, by early June, things will begin to settle down somewhat. There's a humdinger New Moon April 3rd to manoeuvre, which could be challanging after this upcoming SuperMoon in Virgo that opposes the watery Pisces Sun on the 19th of March.  Floods are normal with a Spring Equinox tide, but as Sun and Moon are in tight square to the nodes it could well herald higher tides, more storms/quakes, greater volcanic action & magnetic solar flares. 

Jupiter always makes things so much bigger than we ever expect them to be - good or bad. And as thunderous Jupiter and electrical Uranus have been melding cosmic magic together for the past year, we have witnessed mighty storms, along with a global depression that has even brought people together in a new and exciting manner, with the unification of spirituality of the digital rainbow tribe.

Yet the planets are hotting up now with the heavenly messenger, Mercury, also in Aries; and as Jupiter and Uranus now start to separate, we must actively train the mind and exercise our vision to implement the altruistic state of consciousness. Of course, this means we  remain centred in our presence and invite the Gentle Iron rabbit to work his wonder ♥

Other important factors to consider for this upcoming Spring Equinox Full moon is the Sun-Moon-Earth-nodal-axis forming a mutable cross upon the same degree as the Winter Solstice lunar eclipse, which just happens to be the very same degrees as the first Jupiter Saturn opposition last March – so there is an emphasis upon the last degrees of the Zodiac (which square the galactic centre); PLUS this actual last Jupiter-Saturn opposition’s (exact 28th March), and unpredictable Uranus is very much in the cosmic mix. From the esoteric point of view, a Mutable Cross awakens consciousness with the potential to raise planetary awareness during times of immense change. Did I hear someone say 'Bring it on!'?

Looking forward, Neptune will soon be going into Pisces (at the same time as we have a new Aries Moon on April 3rd); this could be our saving grace: Imagine if the world were bathed in beautifully structured unpolluted water - how healthy in mind, body and spirit we would be. Trust me: We are going to learn a lot more about water during the next 14 years. .•♪♫¸¸.☆♥ ♥ ♥

And if you're at a loose end next weekend, I am talking at the Theosophical Society in London, 50 Gloucester Place, at 6pm on Sunday, 20th March, with Full Moon Spring Equinox energy, on 'Personal & Planetary Awarness for Peace and Prosperity'. Come, it would be wonderful to see you! :)

Mercury & Jupiter in Aries _/\_♥ॐ Mindful of the Guru

Very happy to report that I caught the beginning of the Mercury ~ Jupiter conjunction at sunset, from a lovely french hilltop ~ & a crescent moon with horns in the east right above. Mercury & Jupiter in Aries (exact 16th March) prompts one to be mindful of self in relation to the Guru.

Especially now, March 10th, the 52nd anniversary of the Tibet uprising in Lhasa.

Dear Dalai Lama, beloved Tenzin Gyatso, who works so tirelessly for the benefit of all beings, please remain until Samsara ends ॐ_/\_♥

LOSAR Tibetan New Year 2138 ~ Pisces NEW MOON '11

;) _/♥\_Happy Losar! Tibetan New Year of the female Iron Rabbit begins with the New Moon at 20:46gmt (-5est) March 4th (march forth!:)). The Metal element is like space - all pervading, radiating directly; Rabbit is peaceful and sociable (if a little lazy!). This element & animal combination is therefore distinctly creative... and surprisingly stable. Rabbit is also linked to the intuitive zodiac sign Pisces, symbolic of art and music, spiritual awareness & meditation; and with metal, we can cut the root of ignorance, to realise imaginative potential.
Setting the motivation with SiX planets in deeply sensitive water sign of MAGICAL fish - including Sun & Moon at 13Pisces: TO DEVELOP THE COMPASSIONATE MIND, both intellectually and through the heart.
In esoteric astrology, Pisces' concern is love-wisdom consciousness.

May all be auspicous, filled with LOVE, goodness and happiness ♥ 
Note that for the first part of the lunation, until Virgo Full Moon preceeding Spring equinox,  karma is magnified 100,000 x

Have a lovely Losar weekend dear Friends. _/♥\_ xxx ;)
Am not sure if it was Lama Zopa who painted the gold om mani padme hung ( I think is was!), but thanks go to LZRinpoche for everything he does; and to unknown monks for Chenrezig Mandala to the Buddha of Compasion; and to marikal for the funky yantra mandala light triangle.
