Icons Topple and Ivory Towers Tumble

StPeter-Apos The last two weeks – from the late degree Pisces New Moon on Mar. 15th to the Aries/Libra Full Moon of Mar. 29th, we have been rocked with scandalous news, accusations and testimonies from a variety of sources on a variety of subjects – all of them having to with either sex, violence, abuse or good-old-fashioned outrage. We have seen iconic figures and institutions topple from pedestals and ivory towers tumble to ground zero, where they must fight to survive. Special interest groups spout vehemence and angry politicians rally the disgruntled.

Jesse James, Tiger Woods, the Vatican, “Christian” militia, Russian [female!] terrorists, angry Tea-baggers, and shouts of Hell-no-you-can’t! are just a few examples of the collective angst. We have burst the dreamy, idealistic Pisces bubble and shot in to the rough-and-ready spring of Aries and “attention me”. It’s basically every man – and woman – for himself/herself. The elements reduce the agenda to instinct and intuition, survival and me-first action.

1269965795_bombshell-290 As I mentioned last week in this column, Aries/Libra Moons provide us with a reflecting pool in which to view the mirror of our relationships. Often we are shocked or stunned by what we see, illuminated or enlightened by our own or other’s actions, words and deeds. The reflections of self vs. other shine light into our hearts and souls, encourage us to consider another point of view, weigh information and balance ourselves within the context of what we discover.

Over the next two weeks of this waning lunar cycle, take notice of how the dramatic developments that took place in those first two weeks evolve. The exposes and exposure of people and society reach its zenith at the Full Moon; the following weeks deal with process, acceptance and choice. By the time the Aries New Moon of April 9th rolls around, we’ll all be ready to start it all over again. Check it out. And, in the meantime, stay posted.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
As the Sun transits Aries, personal planets Mercury and Venus move on in to Taurus. This portends several weeks of more practical thinking and doing, when money and love calm down and stabilize. Take advantage of the slower pace, commit to a set of values and go forward one step and one day at a time. Patience and perseverance further.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Ruler Venus and messenger Mercury move into Taurus this week, stimulating a variety of thoughts and ideas regarding your personal world and relationships. Take your time when it comes to believing what you think; Mercury is a trickster. Instead, enjoy the multi-dimensional qualities of your mind and use it in creative, artistic ways. Have fun!
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Easter weekend delivers subtle, but major, changes to the collective whole. The primal thrust of Aries softens as the Moon wanes and planets move from fire in to earth. Calm the battle of wills with patience and tact, refrain from impulsive comments and notice how transformation happens via practice. Turn it over, but maintain focus and take action.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
The waning lunar cycle and a few harmonious earth-trines calm the waters for Moonchildren this week. Breathe deep and know that you are blessed. Friends support and encourage visionary, idealistic goals and help you back them up with time, ideas and input. This is a great week for strengthening relationships and cultivating camaraderie.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Mars slowly marches forward in your sign, retracing steps already traveled. Since you are covering familiar territory, why not take advantage of the previously experienced terrain? The cosmic challenge is to remain calm, patient, practical and persevering, in spite of raging hormones or wild rides. Notice what you didn’t notice before and, this time, do it right.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
A powerful earth-sign trine involving Venus and Pluto supports the manifestation of your most idealistic dreams and cherished hopes. However, you must be practical, realistic and self-disciplined for it all to happen. The step-by-step process of success comes with time, patience and effort. Don’t give up, continue on the path and trust in right action.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Encounters and information regarding other people, places and things has recently stirred the pot, stimulated thought and given birth to new possibilities. Now it’s time to relax a bit and consider options and opportunities. Focus on where you are right now and how you can make it better. Initiate a step-by-step process for the future, living in the now.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Mars direct in your solar 10th house of achievement helps fuel fires of desire when it comes to goal achievement. Keep up the good work but don’t overdo it. Physical health is important now. Stay active, take walks, drink plenty of water and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. And don’t forget to rest! Sleep is the new sex, and you need it to get it!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Fire-sign power uplifts and elevates you physically, spiritually and psychologically – just don’t get too high! What goes up must come down. Enjoy the vistas, but be on the lookout for safe, soft landings. And whether you’re up in the air or here on earth, focus on what’s right in front of you. You won’t move forward by looking in the rearview mirror.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Two earth-sign trines to Pluto in your sign from Venus and Mercury now in Taurus provide you with the love and acumen you need to see clearly and act calmly. These are truly transformational times for Capricorns, filled with unlimited possibility and potential. Understanding the correct use of will and power is essential to success. Consider the concept.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Love is found close to home and great pleasure comes via fixing up or enhancing your living space and environment. Check out the beauty and bounty of nature as you walk, breathe and live. Communicate with siblings, take short trips and explore your neighborhood. Your ability to carve out the life you want is phenomenal. Identify, pursue and manifest. 

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Baby steps are big steps, now you see just how gigantic they can be. Changing patterns and practicing new skills brings great reward. Get serious about routines, schedules and daily habits. Act with kindness and let others know you appreciate their time, effort and attention. Think good thoughts and say good things – it’s magic. Become a magician and transform your world.
