It’s been a highly charged week with Full Moon, the closing of Virgo season and today Spring Equinox. Friends in the north, you will welcome Autumn Equinox right after the Harvest Moon. I’ll be speaking to the essence of Spring today as that is the energy I am residing in here in the south.
Spring Equinox (Ostara) is the day of equal light and dark brings a balance point. Neither Yin nor Yang is dominant, and all things are acknowledged. It is a reminder of the oneness within where there is no divide. Mind, body and spirit are of equal balance.
At this midpoint between Winter and Summer Solstice, look back to how far you have come since March. Observe all that has changed, moved and come to fruition. Have acceptance for all the circumstances that have presented this year. Try not to label them good or bad. See them as opportunities to have a fuller experience on earth.
The moon is in Aries for part of today, a fire sign. Aries takes action on all thing’s passion. It’s a great sign to assist in motivation if you feel a bit stuck. Spring Equinox is the energy of birth and the start of a new cycle of creation. The seeds you planted in winter will start to bloom now if you’ve taken good care of them. As things begin to bloom, ponder what the next step is. Focus on how you would like to feel moving forward. That way, you don’t get honed in on ‘things.’ Maybe write a list of feeling words and place it somewhere you can see it.
You may feel drawn to holding a sacred ceremony today. Make an altar out of gathered nature objects (Always ask any plants, flowers or trees if they would like to be part of your altar before hacking them down), crystals, candles, feathers, or anything you like. An altar gives you a focal point or vortex for the universal energy to create a container for your magic. Spring Equinox is related to the direction of the East and the element of air. You might like to sit at the eastern point of your altar to meditate, then journal or sit to reflect. If you choose to play music, it could contain wind instruments.
The possibilities are endless as we welcome new beginnings and the blessing of Spring in the southern hemisphere. Enjoy!
Two Full Moons in the sign of Aquarius during Leo season means we welcome a Blue Moon today (8:01 pm in Perth). What this means for you today is a chance to connect deeply with your higher Self.
Last month’s Full Moon in Aquarius highlighted your humanitarian side. A focus on selfless service. Now it is time to come back to your desires that will assist in the greater good.
I’ve noticed the pull to go a little quiet over the past week. I am taking time to focus on what I need right now. Last month’s moon was all about assisting and an outward focus of my energy. On this moon, I’m looking at what I can be doing from the inside out. There is a pull for silence, for hibernating away to get on with things without distraction.
Dedicate some time to projects that need your love and attention. Making time to come back to your greatest desires will serve the masses once they are born. Look back to the intentions you set on New Moon and Lion’s Gate. Have you taken any action on these? It’s time to do so. Find your balance again. In doing so, we do not stop giving and assisting others, especially in these crazy times. You gain a deeper understanding of where your energy needs to be for the highest good.
Today’s energy could easily derange into the selfish zone. Leo loves to be centre stage. Have an awareness of taking some time to give back to yourself but not cut off from service. Also, note if you have been overgiving as this is also a disservice. Stay connected to those who need it right now. Give what you can, when you can, whilst beavering away on what you need to do right now. Come back to the essence of love as a driving force of all decisions.
If it feels right for you today, take some time to release and forgive under the light of the Full Moon. Anything outdated or no longer relevant can be let go of with love. Your crystals may enjoy a moon bath tonight. It’s an excellent time for a ceremony as we close off Leo season and move in organised Virgo xx
Today’s quote reminds me that even when the world seems to be spinning wildly, I can come back to peace within. Going inward through Vedic meditation assists me to dissolve stresses and find stillness. In the sanctuary inside, no one else is physically present there but me. There is still a connection to the vast oneness of all our beings, so it never feels lonely. Transcending the stories of the mind dissolves unease as I come back to wholeness. Loneliness can only be present where there is separation. In the sanctuary of Soul, there is only unbound unity. The divine light that is forgotten in human form, only to be remembered again with great joy xx
What a double whammy of magnetic energetic happens we have today. It’s the eighth day of the eighth month and the New Moon in Leo. In numerology, the eighth path is all about abundance, living your dharma, leadership and intuition. These qualities shine through for all of us today with the double eight.
Today is when the Lion’s Gateway portal is at its peak. There might be sudden changes in store as we are pushed to follow our passions. Allow your creative side to shine. Eights bring out the entrepreneurial spirit. You may find yourself going off on your own to create space to experiment. New ideas that are intuitively guided could arise today. Creativity is sparked through play. Give yourself time to be playful, have fun and see what flows. Today is all about turning the mundane into magical.
Also, today we welcome New Moon in Leo. Leo season is such a breath of fresh air in the zodiac. There is nothing a Leo loves more than to be centre stage throwing handfuls over glitter everywhere. Watch out for the drama, though. Don’t let star quality turn into diva antics.
Leo reminds us of the strong, courageous sense of Self we all have. Be brave with any ideas that flow through today’s portal. Commit them to paper, so you don’t forget. Plant the seed and see how it grows. Even if it’s slow-growing, you can take your time and trust it will flourish when it’s ready.
You are the lead role in your life. Own it, be it and live it fully. Leo’s message is to stop worrying about what other people may think. If you think it’s a winning combination and will bring you joy, follow through.
Take some time to journal today. Write down everything you are grateful for and anything you would like to create in your life, aka intentions. Make the process your own and have some fun with it. After all, it is Leo season; throw some glitter on it.
Until next time,
