2019 has proven to be pretty eventful astrologically and the excitement is only just beginning. We are currently on the tail end of our first Mercury retrograde of the year as we transition into a new zodiacal year accompanied by a super full moon.
The dark period of winter is finally floating away as we enter the new season. Spring Equinox falls on March 20th, 2019 during which there will be equal parts day and night. For those who have had their foot in shadow work recently may easily see the message of integration – to embrace the light and dark aspects of ourselves fully. However, I’m sure most of us will appreciate the psychophysiological benefits of increased sunshine coming our way.
The Mercury retrograde in Pisces may have caused some emotional upheaval in the areas of communication but the Libra full moon will encourage us to start cleaning some things up. Libra, ruled by Venus, is all about harmonious relationships and the appreciation of all things beautiful. This is a great time to learn how to clearly and effectively express our feelings, listen more, and set proper boundaries with our associates and loved ones if necessary.
Also, we can learn a thing or two from the earthworm for which this full worm moon is named for. The spiritual essence of this creature is hardworking and diligent, able and willing to go to the necessary depths that many others may not,or cannot, in order to get things done. For those who follow moon cycles as a spiritual practice, full moons are a perfect for implementing release rituals. These rituals help us move beyond old thinking and behaviors that no longer serve us. The Libra full moon is ideal for letting go of the toxic thoughts and behaviors that have hindered us in relationships with others and ourselves. In addition to a release ritual, I also find it helpful to do a card reading for what to expect up until the following new moon.
Aries being the first sign of the zodiac, we can expect new beginnings as we tend to in the spring season. Flowers are beginning to bloom and the life forms that took rest during the cold months are coming alive again. We could use this time to start a new garden, plan a new outdoor workout routine or view this as a new chapter (or proverbial season) in our spiritual journey after having survived the darkest hours. There are no limits.
Tap into your inner desires and get creative! Namaste.
