The clouds are coming over the mountain ushering in a fresh storm. You can feel the change on the winds. We've been going through so much astrologically the past few months and we're about to get a little jolt again. For the next 6-8 weeks we will have to planets in retrograde and we will be entering Ostara (The spring equinox). And yes you heard that correctly, two planets will be in retrograde.
In a few days the lovely planet Jupiter, will go into retrograde and leads us into the shadow of Mercury. During February many of us left it feeling grumpy or frustrated with things in our lives. Coming into March we will be able to look at what was frustrating us and begin to focus on a more active role in our lives. We will learn through this process that we are fluid and ever changing. Completely capable of finding new opportunities and solutions.
This will be the month to reinvent yourself. Take a look at all the areas in your life and rebirth from the ashes of your past. This is not the time to play victim, for if we continue to play this role during this time we will not grow. Learn the difference between sacrifices and compromise. This is the time to keep faith strong and trust that you are being guided. Invoke the strength of spirit and walk into your power.
During this time focus on the past few months and the areas you need to transform. Instead of rushing in to "fix" these situations, go into them gently. This is not a month to rush into anything, retrograde tendencies still stand true. The good thing about this will be the outcome. We will gain a more confident approach in life and will care less of what others think. This will be our time to show who we are and not what we are.
While we are stepping into our power and gaining some much needed confidence, we must also remember this will be a time to exercise patience. This is an excellent time to inspire others and not to take things personally. While both planets are in retrograde it will be a great time to try creative solutions. Think outside the box and do not be afraid to express your talents. But staying humble and grateful at the same time. Think helping others without expecting any reward or popularity.
This period will last us from March 8th - April 15th.
