March 2017

March 2017 the month of SPRING and New beginnings

NOW the year truly begins

Today I was Reading the Celestual Timings by Cayelin K Castell  and she writes so much about KINDNESS, not that many of us are seeing too much of it right now:  But she also wrote something which really stuck a spark with me

“Sometimes Intentions Take Time to Manifest On another note I have also realized that sometimes our visions and dreams take longer to manifest than we imagine and yet when it comes together it is often better than what we were imaging.)    So how many of us are waiting for someone, something, someday which we KNEW was to happen and is not here yet?

I would so encourage us all now to be a part of the Kindness revolution, but recognize that for many who have turned off for so long, turning on now, their dials are set a bit louder than normal and it may take them a while to kind of Level out,  lol

So, let us begin now where we are energetically and astrologically and recognize that after Monday march 20, 2017 at 3:29 am PDT …Spring begins and to me as an astrologer the Sun into the FIRST sign of the zodiac  ARIES signals the year TRULY BEGINS:  SO, I have NOT had my NEW year yet folks..

Adding to this Venus the planet of what we desire in a once every 2 years retrograde motion in ARIES doesn’t it perhaps seem appropriate that that ME FIRST, what about ME, energy would be coming forward very strongly in this 3rd month of a #1 year..

So, Spring this year is a 4 energy which is about foundation and how many of us recognize FOUNDATION is what we are setting up now with our views, opinions, public posts, and for this little Libra sun sign.  EXTREME Rudness from many…..  I have my views and you have yours and isn’t this WONDERFUL?   I am hopefully in this report going to help you see bright lights, stop signs, GO NOW signs, slow down signs, and all the information the universe is trying to give to us all.

Venus is retrograde for 40 Days Moving retrograde in the evening sky on March 04, 2017 at 13 degrees of Aries.  (Sabian Symbol is Aries 13: A bomb which failed to explode is now safely hidden from discovery)  SO, lets not be too literal and think of our EMOTIONS as the bomb, not a literal thing to fear blowing up, but a thing to relate to self as an test about our hidden emotions)

Venus disappears from the evening sky on March 18, 2017 at 9 Aries (Sabian Symbol Aries 9: A seer gazes intently into a crystal ball before him.)

Venus moving from Evening sky dropping into the Metamorphic Underworld. In the retrograde phase Venus conjuncts the Sun March 25, 2017 at 5 Aries (Sabian Symbol Aries 5: A white triangle is seen; it has golden wings.) and a few days later rises as a Morning Star March 31 at 1 Aries (Sabian Symbol Aries 1:A woman has risen out of the ocean, a seal is embracing her.) beginning a new 584 day cycle. Venus moves  direct on April 15, 2017 at 27 Pisces

After on On April 2nd dropping back to Pisces:

SO, lest I have lost all of you in the haze of metaphysical thinking.  THIS VENUS RETROGRADE IS about, our hidden emotions….  And then us beginning to see the light and the gold within self and others… and then us rising out of the ocean (water is always about emotions)  and with the seal embracing us…wow, this is a strong indication of many of you tuning in to connection to source, tuning out the things which are not important and moving into the center of self……and also a strong theme of activism for our planet and our resources.

(see you just got a free reading for the next month)  I would were I you print this part and think.  AHHH  this is what this month is about and Venus moving direct…  4/15 at 27 Pisces carries the Sabian Symbol for us to move forwards (Pisces 27:A harvest moon illuminates the sky.)   SO by fall we shall have illuminated many of the mysteries plaguing us right now.  Found a center of self much more powerful than where we are right now…and begun to see the light..

I would love to turn on the lights for you and show you what is trying to appear to us all, BUT I am not going to tell you not to go when I say STOP:  To thine own self be true is part of what we are all learning now, many have left us this year, many of us are moving on without support systems, and without the security of knowing what tomorrow brings.  AND TRULY?   WHEN DID WE EVER KNOW?   Isn’t perhaps much of life  WTF?  Moments and being ok with that?

March 11th Saturday as the Moon in Pisces opposes Neptune, look for wild dreams and even wilder action on this evening before our March full moon.   On March 12, Sunday. The Virgo Full Moon (22 degrees of Virgo 13)(the sun is at 22 Pisces 13 minutes)  is exact at 7:54 am  DST as we move today to DST here on the West coast.

Sabian Symbol for the moon  Emotions and our past at 22 Virgo is Virgo 22:A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones.  HONORING our sacred energy? The sun (THE NOW)  at Pisces 22: has the sabian symbol of A prophet bringing down the new law from the mountain.

This bespeaks to me of a combined BODY and SPIRIT energy, as we honor the reality of life and also begin to listen to our own inner prophet?

OR ones outside of self who we honor?  I myself love to read David Pond,  Mark Dodich, Gloria Starr, Cayelin Castell , Sybil, and so many others to get a view of what THEY THINK, then I go to inner self and say is this what I should write,  Look at the calendar and feel the energy and ….. instead of just listening to those i admire, i say…. or?   Is this THEIR TRUTH, so many of us will be doing this process Very strongly won’t we?

Full moons are always when the moon (the past and our emotions) are as far from the Sun (the now and current energy) as possible.

IT always begins a time when it is easier to LET GO and a time when we are asked to honor what was, and make room for what will be with the New moon pm yjr 27th of March 2017.

The Virgo Full Moon is the Full Moon of the year that is for celebrating the High Priest/Priestess/healer  who honors the sacred patterning of life.    This last month the circle of life and death has been very close to me and those I love and I have walked that path of remembering my pain as I went into a current event with others.  Birth, death, regeneration, coming back from being knocked down, these are all parts of the patterns of the universe, and things we came into human form to learn along with.

Joy, passion, life, sunlight, sunsets, animals, children, nature, work well done, friends, family, love,  energy, admiration, honoring, sacred energy, those moments when we smile, laugh, or just feel that we have finally CONNECTED for nomatter how short a time with what life is about.

When the Sun is in Pisces we always feel this ability to connect too deeply, this is done not to hurt ourselves but to allow ourselves to see our PAIN and needs and empty spots..aka wounds….. we see them not to hurt us, but  So that we may fill them up.  So, if you have been sad or feeling out of things a bit?  Remember you are in a time of great growth and healing and that you chose to stay for it, says YOU ROCK and YOU CAN DO IT xooxoxoox

March 13th mercury the planet of how we think into Aries again contributes to brave and impulsive action and a bit more of ME ME ME than US US US energy.

On the 15th as VENUS retrograde in Aries  begins to rise, expect lots of old emotions and feelings to surface, remember we are now in letting go time,  honor and release is your best theme right now.  The sun is still shining in Pisces and we are more open than ever before upon this planet to grow into that which perhaps is So much more than we ever thought we could be.

March 17, 18th and 19th expect a DON”T fence me in energy and a bit of the rebel to come forward, not the best time to buy or purchase things, but then again Venus retrograde is often BUYERS REMORSE time    BIG time, remember it is a time when our need is to reapply ourselves to (Venus) what we TRULY desire…rethink, replan, re invision, reconnect is GREAT and oftentimes old lovers try and come back.  I always tell folks about this one,  THINK about when you were with this person…  Are you the same now?  So, what makes  you think they are?

March 20 3:29am pdt  is the Spring Equinox when the Sun moves into Aries and crosses the Vernal Equinox point in the sky. This means today and tomorrow we are in the precise window of the Equinox Solar energies when the Sun makes a direct path over the Equator bringing and equal balance of Day and Night to both Hemispheres of the Earth.    LONG honored and VERY powerful.

On a practical basis, Radiant energy from the Sun directly over the equator lessens the usual strength of the Earth’s magnetic field during the Equinox days.

Did you know that  Twice each year as the Sun passes over the equator the magnetic energies of both hemispheres are at their lowest potency. This means for about 24 hours before and after the exact Equinox point it is easier to connect with other dimensions of reality energizing otherworldly magic that can holistically benefit the Earth.  Those of you doing Shamanic work and magical stuff will find the power during this time fantastic.  LETTING go of grief and pain and fears works wonderfully now also.

Usually magical energy during this time includes calling the directions.  THE EAST is the time of SPRING:  (lots of good sites  about this on google)

SPRING EQUINOX March 20th     ARIES:::::::::: The Spirit keeper for the moons of the east is WABUN, the time of the east is about the EAGLE and the season is spring.  The time of day is dawn and the colors are red and gold.  The powers of the East are ILLUMINATION and WISDOM this year MARCH 20th  until April 19th is the BUDDING TREES moon.  (Can you perhaps see why Many Astrologers, and healers see the coming of the SPRING EQUINOX as the new year?

Hopefully many of you will use this time to do honoring ceremonies, releasing ashes of dearly departed, gathering to celebrate , going outdoors in nature, connecting to those you love?

In the south end area of Seattle Washington?   (MARCH 8th, there will be a SPRING CEREMONY CELEBRATION at DENNYS in Kent .Washington . want to come, please contact asksharonbrigance@comcast.net    this group is wonderful and I know they will welcome you in for the ceremonies, but you need to let them know ahead of time so they have space for you ..  (I am going to try and be here myself)****

Saturday the 25th as Venus retrograde touches the sun is another high holy and wonderful but very different energy day.  We are moon v/c   Moon Void of Course and this is a time to let spirt lead us with the moon in Pisces and some great magical energy happening on Sunday the 26th and into Monday the 27th….

March 27, Monday. The Aries New Moon is exact at 7 Aries 37 minutes .  FOR me this is 8 degrees but will put both Sabian Symbols for you :
Aries 7: A man successfully expressing himself in two worlds at once.
Aries 8: A woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind.  (in Sabian symbols, remember the SYMBOL what does a HAT DO?  what does  the HEAD do?

So the direction East is about From the Lakota Soux  (East (Yellow) – The direction from which the sun comes. Light dawns in the morning and spreads over the earth. This is the beginning of a new day. It is also the beginning of understanding because light helps us see things the way they really are. On a deeper level, East stands for the wisdom helping people live good lives. Traditional people rise in the morning to pray facing the dawn, asking God for wisdom and understanding.)

March 27th,   This is the New Moon closest to the Equinox and is a powerful new moon for growth, for optimism, for creating new intentions or renewing old desires and regaining that which was lost.  For many hope and optimism seem far away, but please remember we have to see where we are to find where we need to go.  In life and Buddhism there is not a GOOD thing,  NOR A  BAD THING,  Just things, and when we begin to see that we put labels on things and our labels are not necessarily the label others would choose, then we begin to attain enlightenment.   IF WE CAN AVOID pointing the finger of  YOU ARE WRONG at others, or self.

Opinions, views, feelings, emotions , change, what does not change is what you are here for this incarnation and for us all right now with the North Node in VIRGO we are here to ::: North Node in Virgo I am here to learn to pare down and look at what is ecologically sound and secure, I analyze and then make decisions;   Will always have the South Node in Pisces, I am here to learn to be more into the details, to learn that there is a big picture  But there is also facts and details which must be adhered to BEGAN 11/11/2015  ENDS  5/9/2017 and then we are here to learn to:

North Node in Leo:  I am here to open my heart, to act, speak and feel from honor and respect and passion;  Will always have the South Node in Aquarius;  I am here to learn to be more responsible, less erratic and that centering in to what I feel passionate about is often much better for me to do than my ability to detach from people and situations  5/9/2017 until  11/6/2018  when the Nodes shift to Capricorn and cancer…

With the sun now in Pisces until March 20th we are all learning the Pisces message of learning to learn to TRUST and to be open to hearing, seeing, listening to the divine and open our senses of  intuition to sense, smell and Feeling;   In Pisces the ability to see we are part of the whole is strong..

So, march 2017 is full of Stop, wait, open, believe and GROW energy.

For us all it begins with many illusions, visions and dreams  (PISCES) and moves stronger and stronger into ARIES the sign of  Action when nomatter our sun signs we get to learn to  act when necessary, to be more brave and to be passionate about our lives.

At the same time , as if this was ever easy?  Jupiter the planet of our BELIEF systems and what and how we REALLY USE FAITH is in the sign of Libra, (RETROGRADE until June 9, 2017)***   this time is asking us to think of others also, to be kind, and to practice compassion and for me Libra always brings to my mind.  “”THERE But for the grace of Spirit go I…   I could have been born in another country, another race, another culture, and without honoring of all of this maybe NEXT time IT could be me..”””

And I have to add in honor of those like myself who struggle with this:
THE Saddest and least helpful phrases we can ever say
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN:::
What Could have been:   AND the worst.   WHAT SHOULD have been.
So, lets all of us keep our eyes to the front window and avoid that rear view mirror as much as possible.  There are things which we can change and things which we have to learn before they can be changed.  AND let us all recognize the difference.  YEP::::

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,   And wisdom to know the difference.
