Flash Silvermoon’s Astro Flash Cast
By Flash Silvermoon
Transformation Time at Moonhaven is showing itself in so many ways.Sitting out in the morning sunlight today surrounded by the verdant green everywhere.Amazing that the unique jungle like Ecosystem here withstood a particularly mild winter so well, not even one really hard freeze. In some ways that can be both the good and bad news but this morning it feels like nothing but good and joyful. As I approach the month of March which heralds my next Solar Return, I reflect on all the passings and losses that I sustained in 2015 and hope that the dross and heaviness of those losses will be lifted from my shoulders as I embrace the sunshine and fresh air.
I ask the Spirits of the land for a sign to guide my passage into the next year when a red headed woodpecker calls out to me reminding me that I am carrying a new rhythm, and to enjoy that evolution as it shifts and changes my demeanor.A good message from one red head to another! By the time that I take that in at least a 1/2 dozen hawks begin to banter amongst them selves or perhaps to me making me aware of forthcoming important communications. Moonhaven is elegantly draped in magenta azalea blossoms and peach colored Angel Trumpets. Volunteer tangerine trees still offer more fruit too. Good to have had a relatively gentle winter after such a harsh year. I must say that I wholeheartedly welcome 2016 which can’t help but be better.
As I sit here writing this all down, communicating as I am told to do. a squirrel jumps down from the roof and into my field of vision with a resounding thud. I have heard this sound before and now I know who makes it. Oh yes Ms Squirrel I am still gathering up my essentials even this late in the season and I bet your hunting and gathering patterns are way off now, with such out of sync seasons or perhaps you perceive a more divine order instinctively. Either way the Shift is here and we are all being affected. I can feel and hear it in the bird songs atMoonhaven.
Writing once more and waiting for Saturn to stop squaring itself to dive all the way in to Astroflash, I hear a too brave armadillo bathing on my back porch. I swear even daylight and my dog will not discourage their invasive behavior. I always welcome their presence though because they represent Protection which is always good with me when I begin to write this column.As I have shared before, writing Astroflashrequires me to experience the whole month ahead energetically so I gladly accept Armadillo’s support today.
My reverie is broken as results of Super Tuesday Politrix stream in on the News.Astrologically, this race has looked like it would be the strangest one we have ever seen and as far as I can see, which is pretty far actually,No one will ever forget the 2016 presidential race.Politrix it is on all fronts and with as much Neptunian energy floating around as there is right now, we are not going to get a really clear picture for some time if at all. GOOD NEWS We Kept the Frackers out of Florida may they be routed everywhere else…….YES!
March begins with a flood of planets in Pisces, hence the Neptune effect on everything. I was talking to a good friend earlier about the general emotional climate and told her that it felt like trudging through molasses.The many planets and asteroids in Pisces are Sun, Neptune,Ceres Chiron and the South Node are all creating the fluidity we are experiencing. On the opposite side of the wheel we have a cluster in Virgo including Jupiter and the North Node.
Generally speaking where we see opposition we can also experience a merging and blending of qualities in this case the elements water and earth are blending giving us mud on the down side hence a slowing of the flow or the molasses trudge early in the month compounded by a Moon Saturn conjunction on March 2. The Up side of the opposition with Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo/ across from all the Pisceanplanets is that it offers a pathway for those energies to blend and improve each other. When we look at the positive qualities of Virgo we see great attention to detail, the microcosm whereas Pisces strength lies in the big picture,the universal, the macrocosm.Jupiter which is in Virgo is the old ruler of Pisces while Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is in the sign of Pisces. This is called mutual reception in astro-talk which means there is a likeness and flow of energies in the beginning of the month which can bring the best out of both Pisces and Virgo, Water and Earth and both Mutable signs which also suggests flexibility.
Whenever there is this much Piscean planets in one space we need to be on the alert for some kind of toxic event particularly with our water. As we have seen as well is that just because one of these events has occurred doesn’t mean that it will be reported immediately. May the whistle blowers have the courage to stand up with the support of the people and let the administration meet these problems with determination and needed monies.
Flexibility is exactly the pathway to managing the energetic shifts of this time. If you want to get the most out of the sometimes aggravating comings and goings of events try not getting too attached to outcomes and plans. It almost feels like what we have come to expect from a retrograde Mercury which doesn’t occur until April 29 so take a deep breadth on that front. Fact is Mercurial energies are being affected by the pull of this opposition so even though thee is a kind of flow, it is taking longer for the energy to manifest and it does so with modification. Wow even trying to explain this principle is taking me on a journey.
Mars is stationing on its 29th degree of Scorpio til it moves into feisty Sagittarius on the 5th. The 29th degree of any sign is considered to be a “critical” degree so between now and the 5th we may well see some very mean spirited and underhanded behaviors manifesting including violence and perhaps more earthquakes. A very potent one was reported yesterday in Indonesia so we should keep an awareness for activity on the Ring of Fire and the Pacific Rim and also possibly California. Let us all send cooling prayers in that area. The birds inMoonhaven have been having quite the time communicating with me as I write this piece. A very persistent hawk is calling to me and circling my home as I offer these words. I have learned to take the punctuating calls of the hawk to make me take those words more seriously. I think that the birds also are just over joyed at the coming of Spring and the joy in their voices is uplifting.
Mars in Sagittarius is likely to be more enjoyable than Mars in Scorpio over all however for the first few day it will be squaring Mercury which will continue to bring out its more argumentative nature. Given the insanity of the often hateful verbiage from all sides of the political spectrum I can certainly expect this to continue. Here’s a thought, why not model the kind of world that we want to create with more kindness in our posts? I don’t mean whitewash the truth about Flint or the abuse of people of color, women and children and animals and the land but maybe we can all practice taking a breadth before we post or speak those harsh words. I am being tested on that today and am trying to listen to my highest self.
We continue to go through a time of culling which is a very Virgo activity. It is so important now to cleave to that which is truly yours and congruent with what resonates with your soul’s path.Yes we do want to be expansive like Jupiter yet we want that expansion to reflect our true self which has come through the sacred fires of transformation brought on by the Uranus/Pluto square that has almost completed its revolution and evolution.
One of the aspects of so much Neptunian/Piscean energy is the concept of Initiation. Think about it, how many of you feel like 2015 was one big Initiation and that these feelings and experiences have been coming even deeper the last few months.Initiation is like a simulation of birth/rebirth. We are in the womb or desire to find ourselves in the healing womb waters after which we come out into the world of form from that cosmic pool of formlessness. This is the magic of Creation.
On March 8 we will experience the first of several Eclipses this one being a total Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Pisces.I feel that this aspect of Initiation will surely peak at this time. Even though the eclipse will only be visible over Indonesia it would be wise to keep your ears to the ground in that vicinity and for the Pacific in general as there has already been an extremely potent earthquake in Indonesia this month. I would also think that tsunamis could accompany these seismic activities, again the theme of big water and earth.
This New Moon offers us the opportunity to flush out the dirty water from our systems on all levels from the very material to the emotional and let it flow down the drain particularly those people places and things that are literally draining.We need space for the new to come in and blossom after all it is Spring. At least here in Florida the signs of Spring are abundant however I am really getting how even the seasons are not exactly regular these days.
Solar Eclipses herald both important endings and beginnings so Happy Rebirth Day one and all. It is a good idea to see just where this eclipse falls in your chart to understand where these changes are likely to occur. This eclipse will fall exactly on my Mercury so it will be interesting to see just how this event will affect my career. One of the beautiful things that the planet Neptune reminds us is that we are all in this together. Time to open the Heart Chakra wide and the Third Eye wider. Your dreams and imagination can be more revealing now than your intellect however blending the two at this time can also be useful as long as you let the intuition lead the way.
The mainstream teaches us to ignore our intuition, to let the patriarchal paradigm of linear thinking run the world and of course this way of being has run the world into the ground. Fortunately the great SHIFT that has been occurring is liberating many from this limited way of perceiving the life.
Lovely Venus enters the sign of Pisces on March 12 joining Neptune, Mercury,Ceres,Chiron, the South Node and the Sun.. This will be a most watery day with loads of creative impulses floating around. Also on this day we will have a Grand Trine in Earth signs and Venus will be squared by Mars which will ruffle her feathers or with Venus in Pisces, stir up her calm waters. Grand Trines always encourage flow between all the planets that are involved and in this case the planets included are the Moon,Jupiter and Pluto.
Typically we think of trines as being positive when in reality trinessimply allow the energy to move from place to place more easily so if the planetary set up is potentially volatile, it can mean that the GrandTrine makes it easier for this volatility to spread. Because these are Earth signs and Pluto is included in this group I would be concerned for more volcanic eruptions.Whenever I make such predictions my hope is always that I am wrong.
Jupiter’s exact opposition to the asteroid Ceres who represents the Earth Goddess could suggest major pulls on the tectonic plates and electromagnetic fields. Finding ways to ground our energies would be most useful too. I love working with the stones and crystals of course and these can be incredible tools for grounding and elevation at the same time depending on your choice of stones. For grounding I recommend smokey quartz and in particular elestial smokey quartz as it also helps you focus on what is essential. agate,carnelian and all the earthy looking stones will do the same as will hematite and black tourmaline which like smokey quartz is very protective. I do carry all of these stones at my shop in Moonhaven.I have very little Earth in my chart so I find it interesting that I have chosen to live with more crystals and stones than are in a museum. Balance!
From March 10 til March 27 Chiron the planet representing the Wounded Healer is exactly conjoining the South Node which symbolizes the path of least resistance, the ways that we have dealt with issues in the most knee jerk and automatic ways even for many lives.On March 11 the Sun joins in to light up the aspect and give more clarity followed by Mercury on the next day.This conjunction suggests a time for us to face the old wounds that we have chosen to avoid or deny so this can be a very constructive time to make major life shifts which will enable us to jump forward and live into the work of the North Node which is our mission plan.
March 20th is the Spring Equinox and this should really be a very interesting day with some very contradictory energies. At first glance i saw the sweet conjunction between Venus and Neptune which should create a most celestial,magical and loving day. On the other hand the Sun will trine Mars turning up the heat and potentially aggressive vibes with another trine from Jupiter to Pluto and a weak trine from Jupiter to Uranus which can bring out a most potent energy. Jupiter is incredibly busy now and will also be squaring Saturn which can add some contradictory feelings about expansion and contraction. This square is not likely too good for our economy but whatever difficulties occur it would be short lived. So if Saturn causes some hesitation regarding a good group activity feel out which would bring you the most joy.The effect of the outer planets moving through Jupiter and Venus will make it a very fine day to celebrate and do some good spiritual work for the Planet.
I decided to combine my March 18 birthday with the Equinox tocelebrate both here at Moonhaven and make it a year of giving back to the Planet.
We will gather for The Spring Equinox and my Birthday on Sunday March 20th at 2pm til at Moonhaven in Melrose. More info below in the Newsletter section and call 352 4752432 for more info and directions RSVP
The Full Moon in Libra on the 23rd is a penumbral eclipse which by its nature will be less intense than a total eclipse.We are dealing here with the opposition between Aries and Libra, self and other. In one way it is a time to really define yourself truthfully with the Aries Sun which is also trined by Mars in Sagittarius and with the Moon in Libra we mustsimultaneously address our need for others,partners or companions. The Martian energy is in some ways stronger which can show up globally as some very warlike behavior as the Lunar Eclipses are very potent times and this is also one of the Super Moons where the earth is more affected than usual. By the 24th,the still Full Moon will be opposing Uranus with a weakening square to Pluto so again there is that danger of some wild card,wild person setting off some unexpected situation and right now it looks like all the cards are wild and not just the Joker
Thank goodness that Venus is still close to Neptune in Pisces as this can provide a softer more spiritual energy. In all seriousness, I do believe that those of us who gather in spiritual groups or have a spiritual practice of their own should make as much time as possible during this month to use the mystical and visionary aspect of Neptune and all the Piscean planets to create planetary safety and healing and to offer some stability as well as Justice.
The month ends with Venus conjoining Chiron reminding us of the healing power of LOVE. This doesn’t mean that it will be easy but it does mean that LOVE is a really good way to begin the healing on all levels.
BLESSINGS FOR A GREAT SPRING FORWARD FLASH SILVERMOON and Now for the Individual signs
