Don’t know about anyone else but I am buzzing around feeling human again after the long winter of Mars Rx. The Sun has moved in Aries, Uranus in Pisces is transiting trine my natal Mars and Mars is direct – all adding up to a big boost in available energy. Even though we had a spring snow storm blow in last night and woke up to a white world, I know it’s temporary. The daffodils and crocuses are blooming and the grass is greening up underneath the blanket of white stuff.
Thinking on the Uranus/Mars transit and how transits work in general, my currant feeling of well-being is the result of changes instituted last fall. I left my day job then and started focusing my attention on my astrology practice. Mars turned retrograde shortly thereafter and essentially brought forward momentum to a crawl. During the same time period I noticed my right shoulder was getting progressively more painful. Over the months of the Mars Rx, I experimented to find out which movements and exercises made the pain worse and which helped alleviate it. About the time Mars turned direct, the pain started to lessen and now it’s practically gone. Of course, I have to maintain awareness of what I’m asking my body to do but that’s OK. Mars rules my chart and sits on my Ascendant and it follows an event like this past Mars retrograde with an out-of-bound Mars intensifying it would directly impact my body. The Mars Rx also acted as a “time out” giving me an opportunity to slow down and establish better sleep habits too.
Now Uranus is moving to form an exact trine to my natal Mars and while it’s not as intense as a Uranus square, there is still the feeling of being plugged into an electrical outlet I associate with Uranus transits! Over the last month or so I’ve been walking more as I find physical activity, especially walking outdoors, is very good for smoothing out Uranus energy zings. This regular activity also has many other benefits contributing to overall improved energy levels. When Mars in Cancer is trine to Uranus in Pisces forming a Grand Trine in Water with my natal Mars in Scorpio in late April, I will be running full speed ahead! Then Uranus will be moving to trine my Mercury . . . . yakkety, yak! ::smirk::
The Sun moving into Aries and the return of Fire in the sky is welcome too. We have all been feeling the lack of Fire around here and now we have Cardinal Fire and the beginning of the astrological year. Mercury will be joining the Sun in Aries shortly (April 3rd)!! If there are new projects in works or changes you’ve been contemplating making, now is the time to start. Enjoy the rush!!
My Jetfire mini-daffodils are just starting to open . . . if you look carefully you can see a trace of snow behind them.© Copyright 2008 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
