Spring Equinox 2019 

 

Spring Equinox Greetings!


Happy SpringThe Spring Equinox, the moment of balance between the light of day and dark of night, arrives on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. The Spring Equinox provides a fortunate opportunity to harness the growing light of the Sun to energize your affirmations, prayers, and meditations. Focus on the positive outcomes you would like to create. As the days grow longer under the nurturing light of the Sun, use your increased energy to spread greater kindness and love in our world!

You may feel a little busier than usual during this Spring Season, with a collection of planets in the earth signs of Taurus and Capricorn (Saturn, Uranus and Pluto) and lucky, expansive, and energizing Jupiter in the the fire sign of Sagittarius. These energies may make you feel like you have a lot to do—with no time to waste. Take a step back, gain perspective, and assess the situations you are in, particularly if you feel like an avalanche of events are befalling you and you must do everything at once. Since you can’t do everything at once, or at least you can’t do everything well at once, your best strategy is to set priorities and fulfill your obligations and opportunities one at a time. This is especially true under the influence of Mercury Retrograde in Pisces at the Spring Equinox. It may be difficult to get full clarity until Mercury leaves its retrograde movement on March 28, 2019. You will have even greater clarity when Mercury transitions out of Pisces into Aries on April 16, 2019.

A rare confluence of two Full Moons in Libra in a row (March 20 and April 19) arrives at the Spring Equinox, putting the spotlight on relationship dynamics during the Spring Season. This rare astronomical event occurs because the 1st Full Moon in Libra falls just hours after the Sun enters Aries on the Spring Equinox and the 2nd Full Moon in Libra falls just before the Sun leaves the constellation of Aries a month later. This rare configuration occurs because a Full Moon occurs every 29.5 days  and the Sun remains in Aries for 30 days. This “double Libra” influence will highlight relationships that are out of balance and call for re-balancing.

There still will be the normal 12 Full Moons this year. The next  Full Moon will be in Scorpio on May18, 2019. But, there will no Full Moon in Cancer this year as the last Cancer Full Moon fell in December 2018 and the next one will occur in January 2020. 

Finally, major shifts in consciousness will initiate during the Spring Season as innovative Uranus moves solidly into the earth sign of Taurus for the next 7 years. Uranus was last in Taurus from 1934 to 1942, and was responsible for the restructuring of our financial systems. Expect a similar restructuring of global real estate and financial markets under Uranus in Taurus until 2026 with some players becoming less influential and other groups of people becoming more important. Under the influence of Uranus in Taurus, you also will see new ways of growing food, new ways of caring for our earthly environment, and new ways of integrating technology into our daily lives.

Uranus in Aries since 2011 leveled the global playing field by energizing an electronics revolution that made a smart phone de rigueur even in the poorest villages of the worldUranus in Taurus will solidify these gains and give us time to refine and prioritize the functions of these electronic devices that have increasingly electrified our earthly environment. Expect to pause, slow down, and re-evaluate the benefits of electronics in your life.

The quantity of electrical energy on the planet also will reach a crescendo during this period, and will be ameliorated with more under-grounding of electrical wires and a recognition of the need for natural elements such as trees, open space, and ocean waves to balance the ubiquity of electronic waves on the planet. A similarly calming effect will accompany the balance between technology, humanity, and Mother Earth. In the meantime, focus on strengthening your inner core and your own connection to the earth's natural magnetism, natural seasonal cycles, and the circadian rhythms of day and night. You will learn much about your personal rhythms and cycles under the rhythmic influence of Uranus in Taurus for the next 7 years!

 

Enjoy the fresh energy, vitality, and light of Spring!

With Love & Light,

Laurie

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

The Sun enters Aries at the Spring Equinox and remains in the Sign of the Ram from March 20 to April 20, 2019. The Sun’s transit through Aries will strengthen your confidence and fortify your energy. Communicative Mercury in Aries from April 16 to May 6, 2019, and loving Venus in Aries from April 20 to May 15, 2019 will also magnetize positive support and energy to you. Two back-to-back Full Moons with the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra on March 20 and April 19, 2019 will attract new relationship possibilities to you. It is rare to have 2 Full Moons in a row under the constellation of Aries, so enjoy the extra attention that will be lavished upon you! Your planetary ruler, Mars, opposes lucky Jupiter on May 5, 2019, making this an excellent time to accomplish your important goals. Strategize in advance and set your priorities to garner the greatest success. An energizing alignment of lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019 will enable you to pursue a cherished dream. Make sure all the numbers add up before you launch a new project. Pay attention to details. They will make all the difference. Your planetary ruler, Mars, in Taurus until March 30, 2019 will strengthen your will in a challenging situation. Mars in Gemini from March 30 to May 15, 2019 will help you see multiple sides of an existing conundrum.
 

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Two Full Moons in the Venus-ruled sign of Libra this Spring will amplify your loving nature. The Libra Full Moons fall on March 20 and April 19, 2019. These Full Moons emphasize balance and harmony in relationships. The energy of the Full Moons also will help you connect with the wisdom of your soul and enable you to see a mundane situation from a more spiritual perspective. With energetic Mars is in Taurus until March 30, 2019, you will do best when you devote yourself to a cause you believe in. Your intuition will be heightened when loving Venus, your planetary ruler, conjoins mystical Neptune in Pisces on April 9, 2019. At the same time, however, you may be prone to only seeing what you want to see. Spend a few moments in meditation, watch your breath, and focus on the spiritual eye in the center of your forehead. Then, tune in to your intuitive higher self. This exercise will clear away any personal misperceptions that may cloud your clear impressions. When Venus in Taurus conjoins innovative Uranus on May18, 2019, just hours before the Full Moon in Scorpio, your creativity will be at a peak. Express your inner self clearly and strongly, but also remain aware of the needs of other individuals around you. Innovative Uranus entered Taurus on March 6, 2019 and will remain in the Sign of the Bull until April 26, 2026. Uranus in Taurus will open the way for you to express your creativity. Uranus last passed through Taurus from 1934 to 1942, and briefly from May 15 to November 6, 2018. Under this celestial influence, any rigid attitudes will soften and you will see new ways of approaching your life. The end result will be a more relaxed, flexible, accepting approach. You may find that something that seemed unacceptable in the past will feel acceptable and even appropriate under this new celestial influence.
 

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)

Communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, will be in the creative, sensitive sign of Pisces for an unusually long period during the spring season as it remains in the Sign of the Fish until April 16, 2019.  Mercury normally spends one month in each of the 12 signs of the zodiac. But this extra-long passage (February 10-April 16, 2019) occurs because of Mercury’s retrograde through Pisces from March 5 to March 28, 2019. Some advice while your planetary ruler travels through the Sign of the Fish: rest, relax, and rectify the past. Don’t worry about being precise or striving for exact results. Pisces is an impressionistic water sign, so it supports your perceptions of the “big picture,” the emotional quality of a situation, and spiritual possibilities. Pisces also enjoys art, music and theater. You will appreciate delving into these areas under the influence of Mercury in Pisces, either as a spectator or as a form of your own personal expression.You will complete many projects during the Spring season after communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, finishes its retrograde and returns to its normal direct motion on March 28, 2019. Your intuition will then be at its peak when Mercury conjoins mystical Neptune on April 2, 2019. Pay attention to your dreams and your premonitions, and follow strong intuitive hunches. Your gift of objectivity will help you distinguish what is fact from what is fiction. Your mental energies will be at a peak when the Sun travels through Gemini from May 21 to June 21, 2019, while communicative Mercury is in Gemini from May 21 to June 4, 2019, and while loving Venus traverses the Sign of the Twins from June 8 to July 3, 2019. 
 

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)

A rare lunar event occurs on the day of the Spring Equinox of 2019, when the Full Moon in Libra takes place just hours after the Spring season commences—which occurs when the Sun enters the fire sign of Aries and the Moon enters the air sign of Libra. Astrology was originally conceived of as an agricultural system so that the ancients knew when to plant the seeds in the Spring under the constellation of Aries and harvest these seeds 6 months later under the constellation of Libra. The constellations of Aries and Libra mark a pivotal time of year when the individuality of Aries balances with the peaceful, relationship-oriented nature of Libra. This Full Moon combination (Aries Sun & Libra Moon) traditionally occurs only once a year, between March 20 and April 20. This year, the Aries-Libra Full Moon occurs a rare 2 times, once on March 20, 2019 and then again on April 19, 2019. As a Cancer Moon child, you will feel especially impacted by the relationship influence of this highly unusual symphony of two Libra Full Moons. This is a relationship tune-up time! The subsequent Full Moon in Scorpio (Sun in Taurus, Moon in Scorpio) on May 18, 2019 is also known as the Buddha Moon and is an opportunity to meditate upon, visualize, and manifest your future. The Full Moon in Sagittarius (Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius) on June 17, 2019, also called the Strawberry Moon, marks the time for harvesting the strawberry crops—and it marks the time for you to harvest the fruits of your efforts for the past year. The Strawberry Full Moon falls within 24 hours of a potent alignment between lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019. This Full Moon will challenge you to clearly discriminate between what is wishful thinking and what is realistically possible. Given all of the relationship energy engendered by the Spring’s lunar alignments, you will have the ability to devote much energy to positive relationships.
 

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

When the first day of Spring arrives on March 20, 2019, you will feel the revitalization of your energy and a sense of renewed hope and optimism. Channel the positive energy you receive from the Sun to people and projects that are important to you. The Sun in the compatible fire sign of Aries from March 20 to April 20, 2019 will fuel your forward movement. This is the perfect time to initiate projects that you have been contemplating during the winter season! Lucky Jupiter in the compatible fire sign of Sagittarius this year will support your altruistic efforts. Prepare to take the next step on plans and projects you have been contemplating during the winter months. You are going into the half of the year when the days are longer than the nights, which is your time to shine! A rare series of 2 Full Moons in Libra on March 20 and April 19, 2019 will activate your desire to connect with others and express your creative ideas. The Moon in Leo on April 13-14, May 10-11, and June 6-7, 2019 will inspire you to align your daily life with your higher Self. An opposition between energetic Mars in Gemini and lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius on May 5, 2019 will fuel your enthusiasm for a new idea you believe in. Another energizing alignment of lucky Jupiter and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019 will open your mind to a profound spiritual teaching or lifestyle. You are ready to make a change.
 

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

With communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, in your opposing sign of Pisces until April 16, 2019, you will have ample opportunities to shift your viewpoint so you may see situations from other people’s points of view.  Mercury retrograde in Pisces from March 5 to March 28, 2019 will give you further cause to slow down and consider situations from multiple points of view. This is a time to discover that there is more than one correct way to see a situation or get your point across. Explore alternate means of communications. When Mercury returns to normal direct motion on March 28, 2019, you will move quickly forward on projects you initiated earlier this year.  Loving Venus in Pisces from March 26 to April 20, 2019 will help you soften your message so people will eagerly cooperate with your plans.You will get plenty accomplished until the next Mercury retrograde begins on July 7! In the meantime, capitalize on the rare series of 2 Full Moons in Libra on March 20 and April 19, 2019. These Full Moons will enable you to focus on your financial wellbeing and  create greater prosperity and abundance. Trust your intuition during the Spring season with the intuitive energy of Mercury conjoining Neptune on April 2, 2019, and with the spiritually receptive alignment of lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019. The Moon in Virgo on April 15-16, May12-13, and June 9, 2019 will help align you with situations that support your highest good.
 

LIBRA (September 23 – October 23)

Rarely does a full moon fall twice in a row in one astrological sign, but there will be 2 Full Moons in Libra during this spring season! The first Libra Full Moon falls on the same day as the Spring Equinox, March 20, 2019. The second Libra Full Moon occurs on April 19, 2019. Full Moons generally occur in sequential order. So, after the Libra Full Moon, the Scorpio Full Moon generally comes next. But the Scorpio Full Moon does not arrive this year until May 18, 2019. The reason? The Libra Full Moon falls on the first day that the Sun is in Aries, the day also known as the Spring Equinox. Given that a Full Moon occurs every 29.5 days, and the Sun remains in Aries for 30 days, the Full Moon just makes it into Libra on the 1st and last days of the month of Aries. This “double Libra” influence will accentuate the need for peace and harmony in all relationships—and will support you to accomplish your goals! The increase in Libra energy during the 1st month of Spring also will shine a spotlight on you. You will be called upon to be the mediator and the balancing point. Your impartial perspective will also be needed when non-Librans get out of balance. This double-Libra energy also will accentuate everyone’s need for peace and harmony. On a global scale, there will be greater emphasis on the need to be fair and share global resources rather than fight. There will be a greater emphasis on responding to conflict in a balanced and peaceful way.
 

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 21)

With your planetary ruler in the disciplined sign of Capricorn throughout the year, you are poised to accomplish many complex tasks, particularly when you are focused on reaching your most cherished goals! You are a tenacious soul who virtually never gives up. This is a time to focus your determination on the most important goals you have set for your life. With energetic Mars in your opposing sign of Taurus until March 30, 2019, you will have the energy to move to the next level in any challenging situations. Communicative Mercury in the compatible water sign of Pisces until April 16, 2019 will help you communicate your ideas in subtle ways that will touch people’s hearts and souls. The need for alone time for self-reflection will be strong for you when Pluto conjoins the Moon’s South Node on April 4, 2019. The South Node is a point that represents the need to let go of an element of the past. You are entering a period of profound self-transformation. Pluto turns retrograde on April 24, 2019, which will create a greater need for solitude and introspection. Communicative Mercury forms a square angle to Pluto on May 2, 2019, and loving Venus squares Pluto on May 9, 2019. You will need extra time alone for self-exploration and contemplation under these influences. Make sure to schedule in some quiet time, or you may feel a bit irritated by external demands upon you. You will feel especially introspective under the Scorpio Moon on April 19-20, May 17-18, and June 13-14, 2019. The annual Full Moon in Scorpio, which falls on May 18, 2019,  is called the  Buddha Moon and is an opportunity to meditate upon, visualize, and manifest your future—and send positive energy and prayers to your upcoming activities. 
 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius until December 2, 2019 will make this a fortunate year for you! Use the fiery energy of the largest planet in the solar system to express your altruistic views to others, garner their support, mobilize them into action, and watch your positive ideas unfold! The Spring Equinox on March 20, 2019 with the Libra Full Moon on the same day will give you the energy to make a decision about your next step. The Moon in Sagittarius from March 25 to 26, 2019 will fuel your forward progress! And energetic Mars in Taurus until March 30, 2019 will help you slow down and refine the details. Your planetary ruler, lucky Jupiter, turns retrograde on April 10, 2019. This creates a reflective, introspective period for you, lasting until Jupiter resumes direct motion on August 11, 2019. Although your fiery nature will prevail throughout the spring, you may need a little more solitude than normal to recharge your mental, emotional, and physical batteries. An energizing alignment of Jupiter in Sagittarius and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019 may blur the boundaries between  reality and your personal belief system. Before you embark on any ideological crusades, make sure to check your facts and bounce your proposals off others to see if your position is realistic. If you encounter too much resistance, reconsider your position. There’s a good chance some information may have become exaggerated in your mind.  
 

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Karmic Saturn and depth-seeking Pluto also are in Capricorn this year, supporting your efforts to express the deepest levels of your soul in your everyday life. Use your influence to bring positive change to a situation close to you. Demonstrate the importance of empathy, understanding, kindness, and generosity under this powerful celestial influence. The Capricorn Moon on March 27-29, 2019 will help you gain momentum on your new plans. Try to slow down and listen to your inner rhythms when Saturn, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde on April 29, 2019. Saturn will conjoin the South Node of the Moon (a point of letting go of the past) on April 30, 2019. Discern whether an element of your past may be holding you back. Gently let it go. It could be an attitude or a habit. Or it may be a relationship or job that has outlived its useful purpose. A rare series of 2 Full Moons in Libra on March 20 and April 19, 2019 will open the way for you to focus on your spiritual nature and upon ways you may share your spiritual qualities with others. The Capricorn Moon on April 24, May 21-22, and June 17-18, 2019 will fortify your energy so you may take your next step.
 

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Loving Venus in Aquarius until March 26, 2019 will attract the people and materials you need to implement your new ideas. Your planetary ruler, Uranus,  planet of radical innovation, entered the stable, earthy, creative sign of Taurus on March 6, 2019, where it will remain until 2026. Uranus was last in Taurus from 1934 to 1942, and briefly from May 15 to November 6, 2018. Uranus in Taurus for the next 7 years will alter the normal patterns in financial markets and cause fluctuating values of material goods, precious metals, gems, and real estate, causing long-lasting changes in global financial systems and personal sense of values. You personally are entering into a more stable period under the steadying influence of the earth sign of Taurus (compared to the fiery influence of Uranus in Aries from 2011 to March 6, 2019). Under the influence of Uranus in the earth sign of Taurus, you may also take up an interest in gardening, herbs, textiles, gourmet cooking, or another earthy activity under this celestial influence. The Moon in Aquarius on March 30-31, April 26-27, May 23-24, and June 20, 2019 will support you to move forward on cherished projects.
 

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

The Spring Season initiates a period of positive activity for you in the 52 days after your Pisces birthday! Your magnetism will be strengthened and the spotlight will be on you as Mercury, planet of communications, traverses the Sign of the Fish until April 16, 2019 and loving Venus is in Pisces loving from March 26 to April 20, 2019. This is a time to center yourself, feel the strength in your core, listen to all sides of a matter, and be the impartial mediator whenever possible. Your large-hearted, big-picture perspective is just what is needed at this time in human evolution. Spread your message of compassion, planetary love, and your awareness of the connection between all human, animal, and plant life whenever possible. With Neptune in Pisces all year, the world is ready to listen to you! Communicative Mercury conjoins Neptune, your planetary ruler, on April 2, 2019. This will attune your mind to a higher, more refined vibration. Trust your intuition! Loving Venus then conjoins Neptune on April 9, 2019, which will open your heart and raise your hopes and your spirits. Energetic Mars forms a square angle to Neptune on April 27, 2019. You may feel at a crossroads under this influence. Wait a few days until the mist lifts on a complex situation. Or ask other people for their opinions so you may gain multiple perspectives. Consider that you may not have all of the facts or be seeing the reality of a situation yet. Your most positive days fall under the Pisces Moon on April 1-2 and April 29-30, and May 26-27. The approach of a positive alignment of lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on June 16, 2019 will make this a fortunate season for you as well.
