Happy Spring Equinox 2017

Hey everybody, happy Spring Equinox 2017!

Today light and darkness are perfectly balancing each other out. This is the day when we can celebrate the forces of light taking over darkness. The promise of the new light we witness every year at Christmas (Yule, the Wheel) is kept in this day. It’s part of the great process of Nature.

This is a very important date for astrologers. According to our art, this is the first of the year which starts with the entrance of the Sun in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, a powerful fire sign that grants us the initial boost typical of new beginnings.

So, what about you?

  • What were your Resolutions for the New Year? After all they are just like seeds, so this is the right time for making them sprout. Start to work on them, as the fire energy of the new year rises.
  • How is it going with Venus Retrograde and Jupiter Retrograde? They are important opportunities to work on our belief system. In addition, they are part of the Astrological Chart of 2017, so they are going to affect us for the following 12 months.
  • What does the warrior side of your personality look like? How did it help you to overcome darkness in the past? Since Mars is the ruler of Aries, this is a great time to reconnect with this powerful archetype.

Also remember to take a break and have a walk in Nature. Sometimes it’s all it takes to clear your mind and recharge the batteries. We are so taken by our daily life that we often forget to simply look around and appreciate beauty. As Dostoevsky once said, beauty will save the world. And what is it, if not symmetry and balance?

Take care and have a good week 🙏

The Voice of the Fall Equinox 2016

fall16

Summer is about to end. The Autumnal Equinox is coming—light and darkness balancing each other. The physical warmth of the season is aging, turning slowly into a spiritual fire that kindly awakens human souls on earth. You can feel it everywhere, in the smells of the earth.

Equinoxes are challenging. They are all about balance between two opposite—yet complementary—forces. There is no effort without resting; no achievement without patience; no celebration without hard work. So, where are you stumbling? We all are, somewhere. We are indeed creatures of habit, but our habits are rarely balanced.

Personally, I worry too much. I always think to the worst case scenario, acting according to my pessimist mindset. Sometimes this might be a pro, but actually it is exhausting most of the time. I know you just can’t live like that, but to me trusting the Universe is hard. And in the end, a challenge.

What about you? What is your challenge?

The Sun Enters Libra

The Sun is about to enter Libra—the sign of balance. As you may know, I don’t really believe in general horoscopes. Nevertheless, I’m curious: how is the Sun doing with this equinox? If we are struggling with balance, why shouldn’t he? It sounds like a bad joke, but technically the Sun in Libra is in his fall. It’s a hard time for everybody.

Let’s see… he is leaving behind Virgo—where he had a bad square to Mars in Sagittarius—to conjunct Jupiter in Libra. I don’t want to make it too complicated, after all we are just playing a little bit with astrology here. Still, this image speaks by itself. No more controversy, struggles and fights—the lord of trust, faith and wisdom is waiting for the new Sun of Autumn.

Have a good week.
