In March, the Sun moved into Aries, initiating Spring Equinox and an astrological new year. Spring and summer call us to feel a renewed energy and new spark to awaken our slumbering passions. This is a time when the earth and our souls emerge from winter’s sleep and the fire element is ignited, stirring dormant desires and longing inside us.
May 1st is Beltane, a fire festival celebrating fertility and passion, delighting in sexuality and sensuality. It invokes sparks of creativity and abundance, celebration and creation, play and pleasure. With the Sun in Venus-ruled Taurus, there is an irresistible desire to make and appreciate beauty. Sexuality and sensuality are blissful blessings to be enjoyed and celebrated. This time of year ignites our hearts and bodies, and all of Nature. Sexual energy is life force energy. Our American culture seems to have an twisted and outdated relationship with sex, and a remarkable intolerance for anything that does not fit into preconceived parameters. But sexuality, intimacy, and sensuality are vital and profound components of embodiment.
With Uranus in Aries, the eccentric and revolutionary planet in a fire sign ruled by Mars, there are inevitable shifts that will continue to unfold in all structures and systems, including things like marriage, religion, and relationships. Systems will collapse, dynamics will change, inner and outer restructuring will take place. Changes are showing up on the sthula (or gross) level, but there are profound alterations happening on more subtle, inner levels. What we see happening globally and socially and in our communities are the corollaries to the deep catharsis and reorganization of our consciousness on a personal level. Paradigms are shifting entirely and we require an elevated and visionary consciousness to activate a deep awakening and expansion. Relationships, intimacy, and sex can be momentous catalysts for our transformation and evolution.
On May 20th the sun shifts into Gemini and we have a new moon in Gemini. And at 4:54pm PDT we will experience an amazing event—an annular Solar Eclipse. It will be visible in North America and will be extraordinary to see and feel. Eclipses are like lightning bolts of radical awareness that blast us open and rearrange us energetically. This will be a kind of energetic quickening, with an amplification of Kali energy. It can magnify and amplify what you are visioning and focusing on with intense power. Set a clear and powerful intention for this occurrence and allow its magic to magnetize your dreams.
Can you release old pattens and paradigms, and be opened like never before? Without judgment, shame, or blame, can you dare to be yourself and let others be too? Freedom isn’t something to talk about in an abstract sense. It is a genuine way of living, daily, no matter what you are confronted with. Embodiment is a precious gift, and sexuality, laughter, touch, and feelings are expressions of your precious Consciousness.
