Ah, the Month of March has arrived, and with that brings the renewal energy of the Spring time. The scent of the moist soil as the tulips begins to veer above the earth’s surface. The symphony of birds as they sin to the glorious, rising sun every morning. The orange-chested robins hopping around on the ground as they search for food and nesting supplies. The buds on the trees as they sprout for life sharing their vibrant green colours to create a new pallet upon the horizon. Spring is a time of renewal, new life and new beginnings!
2017’s ruling planet of growth and abundance, Jupiter, will aspect two outer planets as it continues its journey in the sign of Libra (relationships). But Libra’s ruling planet, Venus will station retrograde at the beginning of the month.
On March 2nd, Jupiter opposite Uranus may stimulate a sense of excitement or a sense of fear within the self. One must take some time to ponder on life, which allows you to tap into the creative and joyous responses to life’s process which will ultimately bring you to a place of inner fulfillment. How do you experience you new found freedom that this aspect is bringing you? If you listen to your inner self, you will find that excitement and fear almost feel the same, one gives us a sense opening, and the other is limiting! Choose the experience that opens up your heart.
The vibration that everyone is wondering about this Month is the Venus Retrograde that is transpiring from March 4th to April 15th. When we work with Venus, we are focusing on two things; our personal values & beliefs (which includes our personal resources and finances) and Love (which includes our relationships and beauty). Quite often when we think of love we think of other people in our life, or the ones we may desire to have in our life. But the vibration of Love at this time is all around the self. With Venus retrograding at 13 degrees Aries 08 minutes, we are tapping into a love of the self, the ability to embrace individualization as one blends the two polarized aspects of BEing; the yin and yang, the feminine and masculine. Typically we embrace that aspect through the ritual of relationship, where man and woman joining together to create a union of souls. But how can one create that union within the self? Often we use our relationships as a stimulus or as a mirror, but it is not really about the other person, it is about you and how you manage that dynamic within the self. For some their relationships might change, alter, or adjust, and for others you will be playing out a dance of where you need to affirm in what it is that you truly value and believe in. This Venus retrograde may feel like a test, a test of love within the self, one that is asking you to define “Love” in your life and how you choose to share that with yourself and possibly others.
Look deep into the self and remember what the Beatles told us… “All you need is love”. If you are in love with yourself and your life, then your value is reflected there, in that point of LOVE!
The second Jupiter aspect is a little more challenging an it is happening at the end of the month when Venus is Retrograde.
On March 30th, Jupiter square Pluto will challenge your growth process. Patience and tolerance is required to infuse the change that you desire in your life. If you feel like you are struggling, then just let go of the struggle, stop trying to roll that big bolder up hill and instead just walk up the hill not pushing anything, but rather enjoy the scenery that is around you. It is in that enjoyment that the bolder will make its way to where it needs to go and you will find yourself on top of the mountain effortlessly. Use your inherited wisdom to transform your consciousness to one of plenitude!
Keep in mind that growth is still possible with this aspects, but sometimes when we deal with growth on a spiritual level, it can also seem challenging. Remember as the butterfly leaves its cocoon, it struggles to free itself, but it is in that struggle that gives it the strength to fly! Are you ready to fly?!
