Spring 2010 – Astrological View (written 4/27/10)
~ Epic Breakthrough!
Everyone is familiar with the energy of Spring: new energy and vitality bursting forth, zest for life springing forward, and new possibilities erupting all around. This Spring is no different. We will feel this urgency to go forth and create something new in our lives, and this time, there is great potential for epic BREAKTHROUGH within and without! Life is calling us forward into a new paradigm of living. Although we will still be healing and transforming old patterns of habit and belief that no longer serve us, the coming CHANGE is imminent.

On April 19th, Chiron, planet of healing, integration, and multi-dimensional awareness, moved into Pisces, the sign of transcendence and compassion. This shift is bringing a greater sensitivity to the work that must be done in order to heal and allow more of our soul potential to shine through in our day-to-day lives. We are now beginning to receive impulses to not only heal and transform what is divided within us, but to go forward expressing our new found wholeness and vision in the world. My sense is that there is a mounting force and momentum that we can ride into a new and improved mode of BEING and BECOMING. We may all experience ourselves feeling more alive than we have felt in a long time, as we manifest more of our true selves in our daily lives. Though this transformation and breakthrough may feel overwhelming at times, there is a great deal of energetic support to move through the changes with a new sense of trust, wholeness, and hope for the future.
This is also a time of PURIFICATION in our lives, as we release energy from the past so that we can express the new. The future of new possibilities and manifested vision is calling us forward out of our safe and familiar boxes. Look back at the last two years of your own life to see what relationships, habits, beliefs, and paths have become a thing of the past in order to make room for this NEW VISION. This Spring increases the purification and breakthrough-to-new-paradigm energy that we have been dealing with since November 4th of 2008, when Saturn opposed Uranus for the first time. For the 4th time in this cycle, on April 26th, these two planetary lights are polarizing again; Uranus is sending shock-waves of liberation through Saturn, inviting any outdated structures to give way to the new. Pluto, planet of empowerment and transformation, is also a part of the mix. He will be in a t-square configuration with Uranus and Saturn all Spring. For us, all of this energetic stimulation might manifest as periods of deep introspection and purification alternating with periods of feeling as if we are soaring and breaking through into new realms of possibility. As we launch ourselves into the new from the old structures that are dissolving, we are being asked to manage our resources wisely and stay grounded while we allow the shifts and changes within and around us.
This Spring continues the changes that have been ongoing for the past two years and introduces something new to the mix, as Uranus enters Aries on May 27th. This will bring an electric, expansive energy, and we are all likely to be swept up in the enthusiastic and courageous energy of Aries and the liberating expanded perceptions of Uranus. This energy is freeing us up to create anew. This is rebirth time! It appears that many potential seeds of creativity that have been gestating and growing in quiet will now be erupting into our awareness. Much deep cleansing will happen as this new energy begins to gain momentum, pulsing and flowing like a great river, carrying us ahead into the summer solstice on June 21st.
So, keywords for this Spring are PURIFICATION and BREAKTHROUGH. If we honor these energetic impulses, we may find ourselves nourishing our body-mind with healthier foods, committing to new ways of exercising and caring for our bodies, deepening our spiritual practices, and sharing our new sense of hope and vision with the world around us. This Spring, we say goodbye to the past and welcome new life!
