MARCH GLADNESS - 2015


STAY LIFTED IN HIGH CONSCIOUSNESS
NO MATTER WHAT THE APPEARANCES ARE
(Agape oath of manifestation)

Looking at the cosmic dance of planets for March 2015 inspired me to get into my spiritual toolkit to stay lifted and optimistic and encouraging to others. The following are just a few highlights of happenings in March:

FULL MOON IN VIRGO
THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2015
We start off with a Full Moon in Virgo, the service sign that says "I analyze".  On the high side this is a cosmic message to be in service to others, to give as well as receive.  On the low side, this Full Moon could find us griping and complaining and over analyzing everything.  March started off with yet another snowstorm for those of us living in the Northeast.  Since I decided to give up complaining about the weather for Lent, I sat quietly watching the snow fall through the deck window and then announced to my daughter and great granddaughter "I'm imagining that each snow flake is a $100 bill thats landing in my bank account".  The 6 year old said "yaay! I want them to be in my bank account too, grandma!"  After watching a story on Vince Young, the quarterback from Texas who started giving back and paying it forward to young children in Texas, we decided to watch "The Wiz" again. The music, the dancing and the message is always a feel good adventure, no matter how many times we see it. The Full Moon always seems to bring up the temps a little, so we're looking forward to 30 degrees on Thursday. ( yaay! a heat wave)   

MARS CONNECTS WITH URANUS IN ARIES, WHILE
SQUARING PLUTO IN CAPRICORN ON 
WEDNESDAY,  MARCH 11, 2015


We might as well block out the whole second week of March, from the 9th to the 14th for this one because these planetary energies will be within one degree of one another. Also this will be the last of 7 squares that started in 2012, between Uranus and Pluto. Mars comes along and heats up the energy, or because Mars is a cold planet we could say it freezes the energy. Astrologers have been looking at this aspect for a while now, and none of us have a clue as to what it will bring...really.  We could predict doom and gloom or we could project that this marks the ending of evil on the planet.  But it is an explosive energy that could be violent.  This is the kind of aspect where "breaking news" will be the theme.  However we've had so many of them with corporate media that it's no longer shocking or surprising.  So back to the Oath of Manifestation..."I stay lifted in high consciousness, not matter what the appearances are".  Also my usual advice "Keep the Light Around You".  If you've formed the habit of walking in the Light there's no need to worry.  If you're a "go with the flow" person you'll just be the witness of events and not be negatively affected by them.  Believe it or not, we all chose to reincarnate on planet earth at this time and as Rev. Michael reminded us in January, it's time to show up!  It's time to activate the principles that we've talked about and read about.  Do we really believe what we say we believe?  Or are we just using our belief systems to make others feel inferior?  This is a time when action will definitely speak louder than words.  Pray, Meditate, be in service to others, speak words of love and kindness, walk you talk and keep the Light around you.  

SOLAR ECLIPSE AT 29 PISCES ON
FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 2015

The 29th degree of Pisces is sometimes called "The Point of Expiation", because it represents the end of the Zodiac before it reboots back to the beginning at 1 degree of Aries.  The Zodiac is in a circle so technically there is no beginning or ending. It's all connected, just as we are all connected to one another, whether we know it or not.  It has been my experience that what happens on Eclipses, New Moons or Full Moons, depends on that you're calling for in advance.  If you expect something bad to happen, you're inadvertently calling it to you, but if you expect something good to happen, you're also magnetically drawing it to you.  Much depends on your consistent thoughts on a daily basis.  "I declare, absolutely, that I'm living in a friendly universe that is always providing for me.". (Oath of Manifestation)  It's all good.  Love & Light, Ayesha

MARS IN ARIES - FEBRUARY 19 TO MARCH 30, 2015

MARS IN ARIES

Mars the action planet will be in Aries, the sign that it rules, from Thursday February 19th until Monday, March 30, 2015.
It's time to put some feet on your prayers The things you were praying about when Mars was in Pisces can be activated now.This is a good time to take action to make the dream a reality. Every successful person I know is an activist in life. MLK didn't just dream about a brighter future. He shared his dreams and visions and then took action to bring the dream into reality.  The same holds true for all the heroes and sheroes of our past and present. Harriet Tubman not only dreamed about being free but she took the steps to free herself and then risked her life to free many others.  Mars in Aries says "it's not what you say but what you do that matters". "action speaks louder than words" my grandmother used to say. So now we have a cosmic boost from Mars in Aries. It's time to be courageous and take those projects off the back burner and move them forward.  Fear of failure or rejection is what stops most of us from doing what we know we must do.  The Bible tells us "The Lord is our strength and our salvation...whom shall we fear?" Marianne Williamson says "we're afraid of our own greatness".  But when we dare to shine our light we give others permission to shine their lights.  OK, so much of this is a reminder to myself to take off the lead shoes and fly.  There are many things to do on my "to do" list and I need to deal with them.  

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY

There's always the positive use of planets, signs and aspects,and the flip side that's not so good,  so lets take a look at them.  We have free will and choice on how we use the energies.  Consciousness is key:

MARS IN ARIES - GOOD: breakthroughs, courage,  right action, facing fears, standing up for what's right, self confidence, grace under pressure, starting something new, trying the untried, fearless, consistent belief in oneself, breaking unwanted habits, starting positive new habits.
THE BAD: arrogance, egotisical, needing to be right all the time, impulsive behaviors, rushing in where angels fear to tread, argumentative, selfishness, pushy, lacking in compassion
THE UGLY: always in a hurry, driving too fast, moving too fast, carrying out a vendetta, impatient with others, misuse of guns, knives or instruments of violence, going beyond limits, inconsiderate of others, fires, explosions. 

MARS IN ARIES/ URANUS IN ARIES

 Uranus, the unpredictable one is in Aries now.  Mars in Aries will catch up to Uranus on March 11th but we'll just say that from the 8th to the 14th, these two explosive energies will be  together.  The advice is to be extremely careful around fire and explosive materials and also when driving.  We could witness another big hack on computers owned by corporations, or governments, so do what's necessary to protect your information and stay off sites that are shaky.  This is also for smart phones, tablets and other electronic devices where your personal information is stored.  New York City has the Moon in Aries so if you live there, use your intuition before getting on the subway or buses, and stay aware when moving about the city.  The news probably will be popping with stories of unusual accidents and/or violence.  I would say to keep the Light around you, as we should be doing all the time now anyway.  I'm always interested in the stories of people who miraculously survived potential danger because they paid attention to their intuition. Like the people who couldn't get to work on 911, cars that broke down, people who overslept, folks whose metrocards didn't work so they missed the train.  The woman who went against her supervisors orders to walk out of the building, and once seeing the danger walked all the way back up the stairs to warn her co-workers (who paid her no attention) then ran back downstairs and got out just as the building started falling.  These stories ( and I have plenty of them) just enforce my belief that intuition is real and the Light works everywhere at any time.  So stay wrapped in the protective Light and stay tuned in.  

WACKY WEATHER
I gave up complaining about the weather for lent (smile). But because of my training with a talented astrologer on how to predict weather, I'm amazed and disappointed that what I was taught doesn't seem to work any more.  However when I noticed Mars going into Aries six months ago I thought to myself "we're going to have an early spring". Not! Aries is the sign that brings in Spring, plus Mars activates the energy, but what we're experiencing now is just the opposite of what I was taught. Lower temps than usual, more snow than usual and no sign of warmer temps.  It's as if the weather gods are angry with those of us living in the northeast. Witness what's going on in MA, NY, PA, NJ, and places that are totally surprised with weather that has shut down the whole city, and/or state.  My relatives in TN are locked down with ice, snow and colder than usual temps.  This is our time to be patient and to just go with the flow, as this too shall pass.  One conspiracy theorists said an experiment at HAARP went bad so we're experiencing the reverse of what we'd want to happen.  My theory is that the movie Frozen (about an ice queen) went deeply into our subconscious minds and we're creating all this ice, snow and freezing temps...so I'm blaming it on Disney (laughing).  So while most of us are planning to initiate projects, we're locked down waiting for the plows to come.  I'm also still going out every morning to get the ice and snow off the car (brrr!). This is a test of my belief that everything is working together for my good.  I'm not fussing to myself as I chip off the ice, but saying a prayer of gratitude that I am able to do it and also gratitude for the sisters and brothers who helped me get the car.  Even with my fingers freezing to the bone, I'm smiling and saying "thank you", "thank you", "thank you!".  It makes me feel better and sends out an energy of positive good to those around me.  It's all good!  Gotta go clean off the car. I love you all, Ayesha

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS - FEBRUARY 18, 2015


THE SECOND TIME AROUND

On Wednesday, February 18th we'll have another New Moon in Aquarius.  The first one was at zero degrees of  Aquarius (on January 20th), and this one is at the very end of the sign (29 degrees). It's like the cosmos is giving us a second chance to get it right. If you started something with the first one, but ran into obstacles along the way, then this time you'll be energized to get it done.  We've had a retrograde Mercury along the way, but Mercury went direct on the 11th, so there's no excuse (smile).  Usually New Moons are all about beginnings, but this one has a completion or endings energy.  

AQUARIUS ROCKS!

I've always loved the sign Aquarius. It's the 11th Sign in the Zodiac, ruled by both Saturn and Uranus.  It's also a fixed air sign, with the keywords "I Know".  Many inventors were born under the sign of Aquarius, because of inner need to change things for the better. Aquarius people are basically intellectuals because they have a natural energy to explore and to gain information.  Aquarius rules the 11th House of friends and large organizations in the astrology chart. They are known for their volunteerism and ability to organize diverse groups of people. That is because Aquarius usually knows people from all walks of life.  They also love to travel and find it easy to mingle with people who might speak a different language.  Many of my friends are Aquarians.  I love them because there's no pressure in our relationships. We can be out of touch with one another (because we are always so busy) and when we reconnect it's like we never were apart.  They are great conversationalists because their knowledge is so vast.  What I love about them is the if they don't know a thing, they will do the research and educate themselves.  Aquarians are humanitarians by nature  and while some think of them as cold and aloof, I love the fact that they aren't the feely touchy folks who just need to have you around.  I'm thinking the phrase "if you won't there's others who will" must have come from an Aquarian.  


SO WHAT DOES THIS 2ND NEW MOON IN
AQUARIUS MEAN?

For one thing is means we need to move from our "me" "me"
consciousness and move it up to "we" "we". It's time for all of us to think in terms of how we can use our gifts and talents to benefit others. We all breathe the same air and drink the same water so it's time to consider what we're doing to free Earth Mother from pollution, not only for our own well being but for the generations to come. The other thing is we need to connect with others, form groups and focus on eradicating racism, poverty and violence. It's easier today to communicate with groups of people, through the internet, facebook, twitter, etc. etc. We wouldn't even know about Eric Garner if it wasn't for a man with a smartphone who knew how to upload a video on social media.  The consciousness of the people is changing, hopefully for the better. We need to help one another and the Law of Karma says if you help someone else you'll really be helping yourself.  We need to get back to caring and sharing and loving each other unconditionally.  We could start in our own individual families and the move it out to the people in our neighborhoods. The circle of Light will expand exponentially, as we use it.  On the individual level we need to clean up the pollution in our minds. We can do this by monitoring our thoughts and our words, eliminating hate speech, criticism and gossip about stuff that doesn't matter.  I was blown away when a friend told me about the hate messages on twitter and facebook about the Bobbi Christina situation.  People sending out hate who don't know her and who probably will never ever meet her.  We need to check ourselves when we feel the need to comment negatively about someone who is in crisis.  When we say negative things, our bodies are listening and we're damaging our cells.  When we come from a space of love and joy we're healing our bodies.  Regardless of what media is saying you don't have to sit there like a robot and take it all in.
Use the remote and remove yourself from the danger of ingesting negativity.  The veils between the planes is getting thinner every day.  Take advantage of this cosmic phenomenon and monitor your thoughts and words. As Rev. Charles Barker used to say "think what you want, but want what you think".  

THE WEIRD THING ABOUT THIS
NEW MOON
This second New Moon in Aquarius happens on the 18th  at 6:47 pm, at 29 degrees of Aquarius. Then at 6:48pm the moon moves into Pisces. The 18th is also Ash Wednesday, a Christian event signifying the 1st day of lent.  Every year when I was a child we'd make our resolutions to stop a bad habit during lent.  But just like our New Year's resolutions we'd soon lapse into that old bad habit in a few weeks.  This year I'm promising myself that I'll not say another negative word about the weather, which has been brutal this year.  I'm not going to complain about getting up early to clean off the ice and snow on my car. Instead I'm going to silently give thanks that I have a car, due to the generosity of the good people I know.  

CHINESE NEW YEAR
OF THE GOAT
On the 19th, one day after the New Moon, we celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Goat.  I think of the goat as the symbol that connects to Capricorn, the sign that is success oriented (climbs higher than any other). I'm not an expert on Chinese Astrology, but I'm thinking the energy is on being successful this year.  The goat is a climber that loves to climb to the top of the mountain.  Maybe the energy is to work on your specific gifts and talents to move it to a higher level?  At any rate Gung Hoy Fat Choy (Happy New Year) I wish all of you much success in your life and more joy, love, happiness and prosperity.  You deserve it.  Peace & Love, Ayesha
