It’s Time To Be the Star of Your Own Show

Are you ready for the spotlight of your soulful awakening?

Like most of you, I am looking for a new beginning.  But what I have realized is that it’s not going to come in the form of a new job, a move, or a lottery ticket.  It is going to come from the inside out, so I must start by shifting how I think and feel about myself.  You see, I have been clinging on to pieces of outdated fiction that have structured my internal story, and I am finally able to see them for just that – stories.  Simply remnants from the young me that are unwilling to be left behind.  Old mentalities.  Wicked fears.  Childhood regrets and insecurities.  I have known of their existence for some time now, but my mind just could not detach.  They created a sense of safety, as they had been all I knew.  So even when I told myself it was time to let them go, it was just the old me creating a moment of self sabotage.  I knew I wouldn’t really be strong enough to detach.  Until now.

Given all the intense astrological business that’s been going on these last few months, I have crafted some new habits for myself.  They are allowing me to get some distance from the outdated thinking that was holding on for dear life.  Sure, there’s always a chance I’ll slip and end up eating a whole chocolate cake to myself, metaphorically speaking.  (Mine would be a carrot cake.)  But I have to believe that a new beginning is possible, one that I can cease and own.  I have to believe in myself.  For only from honest self-belief can one be inspired to birth his or her greatness.

Spring is here and the planets want us to move into action in a big way

The Aries new moon is here to illuminate the essence of our truest potential so that we can bring a soul-felt new beginning into existence for ourselves.  These last couple of months have been a lot of “who am I?” and “What do I need right now?” moments.  Lots of starts that have gotten us closer to our dreams, but then some stops too, which has made it all rather frustrating at times.  What we must realize is that there were some much-needed tweaks to our internal selves that needed to occur before we could manifest our goals.  Now hopefully you have been doing the internal work to get you more in touch with those necessary shifts you must make.  If not, stop reading and get to work.  Or just make this new moon all about initiating a more honest relationship with you.

A new cycle is upon us.  Spring is here and the planets want us to move into action in a big way.  No more daydreaming.  As some would say, it’s time to shit or get off the pot.  Either we are taking responsibility for the soul transformation into our new unique selves that wants to occur, or we are running away, perhaps never to be heard from again.  And you wouldn’t do that, right?

Let this Aries new moon be your opening number

I hear a lot of you feeling this shift – this urge to break out of old patterns (relationships, careers, ways of being) and really bring the real you to light.  Well now is “make it or break it” time.  And I want to see you succeed.  Think of it as if you have been working behind the scenes on the play of your life this whole time, and now it’s time to take center stage.  Are you ready for the spotlight of your soulful awakening?  Is it time to get out there and give it all you got?  Let this Aries new moon be your opening number.

Per usual, here are some more specific thoughts on each sign:

So, Mercury is back in full effect. What about it?

I’m finally ready to break through.

Last night, my boyfriend, the Aquarius, and I sat out on my porch and gazed up at the sky.  A few days before he had asked if Mercury was moving out of retrograde yet.  “I feel a shift coming on.”  I assured him that it was but suggested that perhaps he was feeling Venus’s move from quiet, sensitive Pisces into fast and furious Aries instead.  He agreed that could be it.  But sitting outside in the Spring nighttime air, he let me know that it felt like it was time for a cycle to end.  “It’s like I’ve been chiseling away at something for a while now, and I’m finally ready to break through.”  I echoed his feelings, sharing that I too felt like it was time to start putting into action everything I have been pondering about my life.  “Well, just start doing it!”, he pushed.  Later, as I drifted off to sleep, I wondered what life could be like if I put all of the effort that goes into generating my thoughts into generating some action.  I spend so much time and energy thinking myself into circles that my brain must resemble a hamster wheel by now.  It seems like it’s finally time to hop out of the spiral and take some action.  And no better time than this week.

Mercury has been in retrograde for the last few weeks, stalling some of the forward momentum we may have been feeling since the start of the new year.  However, it was also a necessary time for reflection.  Aries can give us all a very ‘full steam ahead’ approach, which can at time get us into a bit of trouble.  We make decisions because they seem exciting or ‘feel right’.  But actually, we’re diving head first into something with unexamined intentions.  We may think we’re choosing a lover or job out of passion or excitement, but it could be the unseen forces of fear or insecurity at the helm.  Of course, the converse is true there too.  What may feel like a fear-based thought is really one centered in one of our deepest desires or needs.

These past few weeks have been meant to clarify our goals and what is motivating our personal charge for them.  And with Venus moving into Aries now, we’ll not only be able to move forward with more clarity and intensity, we’ll also be able to relate to those who can help us in a creative, inspiring way.

So how can this affect each of us more specifically?  Let’s take a brief look at each sign and where you can be putting your energies.  Remember to read your sign’s posting as well as for those of your rising and any other sign you may have an abundance of in your natal chart.

Full Moon in Virgo. What about it?

Okay.  Full Moon in Virgo.  What about it?

There has been so much talk about the upcoming full moon on March 19th, also known as the “supermoon”.  Apparently, it will be 8 percent closer to the earth than most full moons, so it may appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.  Some are speculating that, due to gravitational forces at play, it could also end up causing more environmental catastrophes around the world.  At this point, who can be sure about what the world will bring us and what will be its cause.  I just think that there’s so much pent-up fear and frustration around the recent global events that people are looking for some way to feel in control of what’s to come.  They want something to believe in so they know where to place the blame.  And that’s natural.  We don’t all want to feel at the mercy of some unknown entity, so if we can make anything the moon’s fault, or your mom’s fault, or Britney Spears’s fault, then at least we have a picture to pin on the dart board.  But is that a real solution for the inner anxiety that is guiding our thoughts, actions, and ideas?  Not really.

Uranus in Aries. What about it?

Inspiration comes in the blink of an eye.  It can come from a stunning view of nature, an overheard conversation, or a twinkle in your boyfriend’s eye.  It can surprise and delight.  It can change your life.  Inspiration also shares a similar quality to that of an accident.  They are both sudden occurrences, surprises unforeseen that are able to completely transform the course of one’s existence.  Both force us to be creative with our lives and improvise from that point forward.  We either have to act on our mental impulse to paint that room, buy that car, or eat that chicken OR we have to get to the hospital, clean up that mess, or exchange driver information.  One is usually much more enjoyable than the other, but both offer an opportunity to make a shift in our path.  We also call both of them into our lives on some level.  Have you ever felt like you needed to shake things up, only to have some event occur that forces you to do just that?  However, why wait for something to come along and make us change, when we can read the signposts that are trying to tell us where we need to change?
