Spring Equinox 2017 – Retreat and Renew, Resist the Impulse to Run

The energies this week are a bit turbulent. With Venus retrograde, we could be revisiting old, dead stories about our love lives. People and karma we thought we’d left behind may resurface. This week Venus leaves the night sky to return to the underworld for eight days before she reappears as the morning star. She’ll be the morning star for the rest of 2017. Want to use Venus retrograde wisely? It’s great for reworking art that you haven’t finished yet, or finding new ways of relating in current relationships. Maybe things have become a little…stale? Out of balance? Routine? Tweaking what’s working to enhance it and start a new chapter is a great way to use the energy of Venus retrograde and the Spring Equinox.

Uranus is a wild card and with Mercury and Jupiter in the mix this week, communications could be hot tempered, unexpected, and jarring. Or it could be overblown and out of proportion to the situation! You know how they say count to ten before you speak? Try counting to twenty, and putting your phone down. Or take a break from communications altogether and shut your phone down for a day. Or two! At least put it on silent. Friday and Saturday would be good days to do so.

Speaking of Spring – the sun feels great these days, doesn’t it? Now that it’s in Aries, a fire sign, there’s an impulse to take off like you’re at the start of a race, to do everything now! To chase the wind. Yes, you want to harness the energy of Sun in Aries to get moving on things and light a fire under your own tail. But this week could be challenging – it might do you better to take a few more days to go within, meditate, dream, and visit your inner world. When you nourish yourself by drinking from your own well, the water is pure and unfiltered. You become well hydrated, which is essential to handling all the things that are going on around you this week.

Spring equinox is a good day to make a list of the things you want to grow in this season. Plant a few small select seeds, so they have a chance to sprout. Make your list tonight! Or on Friday, March 25, a magical day when Venus crosses the threshold into darkness. She can carry your seeds with her, if you ask nicely.

Mindfully yours,
