This is my favorite day of the year. I love celebrating my birthday and I always wake up infused with the magic and possibilities of creation, the wonders of birthing a new me.
This day, this season, is when I feel the energy of planting seeds. What I begin will show me its harvest six months from now, around the time of the Spring Equinox.
As I reflect over the past year, and particularly over the last seven years relative to transiting Saturn as it aspects my natal Moon, I feel my completion on many levels. I have felt the “cycles within cycles,” more palpable than I can ever remember feeling them before. I attribute this to my deep dive into the realms of astrology and the Divine Beauty of Great Mystery…and with that, my activation of a more conscious participation with my relationship to It and Me.
This past year has felt like a grand culmination of my entire life, my first 47 years. My mantra has been about letting go, releasing, endings, death. While my natal Moon/Jupiter in Sag holds the space of optimism for me, my enthusiastic and expanding place of vision and possibilities, it has been challenging to manifest the new, fiery creative impulse bubbling up inside of me, not quite ready to come to a boil. I’m excited to taste that full heat and I know it is arriving soon…very soon!
For now, the message has been about freedom (Uranus), about a reclamation of my Feminine Power (Venus Return) and about taking the elixir I have distilled (Pluto), out into a larger community (Jupiter/AC Cap and Venus Return/MC, Mercury). I look forward to sharing my medicine with you!
