Mars, the ruler of Aries, and the energy we have in life (or don't have) depends on where Mars is in your horoscope. Our energy level affects our whole life, and our chakra's are the energy centers of our bodies, or should I say our etheric bodies. Now more than ever, our energy BALANCE matters.
There are seven Chakra's, from the base of the spine to the crown, each vibrating at a higher octave the higher up you go. But not a lot of people have heard about the 8th Chakra, which floats about one foot above your head. This is the SOUL CHAKRA and is the connection between your physical body and your true energy body self and knowledge of our real selves and our purpose.
Meditating, Prayers, asking for Divine Guidance, and assorted disciplines, keeps the connection and builds it back if it has deteriorated. We are being bombarded with intense soul based energy right now, so keeping balanced helps us more easily make the transition. Not doing that makes us nervous, edgy, cranky and perhaps angry if it's pushing our world view buttons.
Non-soul based thinking clings to the material, soul based thinking KNOWS something so much better than that exists. In these crazy times of endings and beginnings, you are less afraid or confused when these changes take place, and you therefore accept even embrace the changes you need to make now.
It's a simple matter of making it easier for yourself. Please go to my meditation page and download the FREE How to Meditate manual and practice this everyday, whether its 10 minutes or 60, it helps a lot.
Our energy friend Mars is ruled by Aries and is unbridled energy, as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the initiator, the leader, the idea person who can be quite impulsive. Mars and Go are the same word. Mars can't sit still for long, it has places to go, people to see, adventures to experience. And Mars has been in it's opposite sign, Libra, now for 7 months. This alone is quite uncommon, as Mars usually stays in a sign for 6 weeks then moves on, but in Libra for so long, you have a Mars that is pretty fed up with being held back, especially from the last couple of months of being retrograde or even more blocked.
Finally on Monday the 19th, Mars has turned direct in Libra. Tired from his confinement, it will take a little time for energy momentum to build, but it is finally happening. All those stalled projects move forward, attempts to complete tasks are no longer thwarted, creativity, exploration and FUN get the go ahead! It's also time to have those conversations you've been putting off. Speak from the heart now. Wake from your imposed slumber and get ready to rock and roll. And Mars will now oppose Venus in Aries, so expect great ideas out the blue, love at first sight or lovers reunited and opportunities to do things you love doing. Mars and Venus opposed is powerful energy, lust, excitement - your whole energy level is about to take off to much more free and happy places. I won't go into the Uranus Pluto square this week. Time for a break from the battle talk, but know this square will be fueled by Mars moving direct. The energy for change is building, growing, increasing, getting ready for the summer of change. Rest up on Sunday, so you are ready to Go Monday. I bet you can already feel it, things breaking loose and ready to go forward any day now.
Wednesday the 21st, the sun moves into Gemini, the thinker, communicator, gad about. It joins Mercury already there. You continue to move faster, think faster, get out more, and Mars is giving you the energy to do it now. Your fun calendar should start filling up! Like sleeping beauty arising from a deep sleep, you are getting ready for the summer of amazing change and energy.
Saturday Jupiter, the planet of good luck and abundance currently in Cancer, is going to Trine Saturn, the serious Taskmaster. It's a time of fruition. Positive outcomes, offers, opportunities come through in a solid and reliable way thanks to Saturn. It's a good thing!
Think positive and with gratitude. Focus on the good and more good will come. Have a happier, lighter week - next weekend is a welcome 3 day break from hard work. Relax, play, enjoy. You deserve it!!!
