Quickening – Thickening

Apr 6, 2021

March was primarily a month that was conducive for re-dreaming our lives. Going within to find that inner still-point within the storm. The primary evolutionary intention was stimulating an inner calm – within a chaotic and unstable environment, planet Earth. Great ways of doing that was finding an inner balance through meditation, creativity, and harmonious relationships. It was also quite a visionary month, where many of us receive guidance if we were doing the inner work with a spirit of openness and receptivity. That doesn’t mean it was easy, but it was the main archetypal field that was activated. Where we got planets activated in our lives is where we got problems! What I mean by that is that’s where the growth and action is, and where we can do our deepest work.

That period of inner gestation comes to an end on April 4th when Mercury leaves the dreamy sign of Pisces, and joins the Sun and Venus in the sign of Aries. We are currently in the season of Aries, but that ramps up a lot when Mercury joins the party. Aries represents the out rushing power of spring. Now, we should have somewhat of an action-plan from the dream-engineering March, and now it’s time to invoke the inner Warrior and take assertive steps of quick movement. The first couple weeks of April are lively and energetic, so it’s helpful to leverage this fiery energy to engage.

Meanwhile, one of my favorite aspects of this month is the ongoing Mars/Jupiter trine. A couple words that come to mind when these two planets dance is enthusiasm and opportunity. Armed with the kinetic blast of the Mars in Gemini, Jupiter in Aquarius’s faith and optimism can help inject some positivity and movement into our forward moving Aquarian trajectory. Also, another common feature of these planets, is experiencing brief “windows of opportunity”. The door opens, and then shuts. You went through it or you didn’t. What opportunities? Well we aren’t all guaranteed them this month, it really depends on how they are interacts with your own chart. My advice would be keep your eyes peeled, and look for serendipitous occurrences that resonate with your internal processes from March. Again, look to your personal chart, but in general, now is the time to take a leap, initiate a new project and, if safe and warranted, travel and/or relocate could also be in the mix as well.

Looking at this on a more personal level, we can more deeply gauge the evolutionary potentials. On our quest to cultivate more virtues, faith in oneself is an evolutionary goal of Jupiter, and courage is a primary goal when working with Mars. Mars and Jupiter, although they have very different energies, they can really work well together through the trine aspect, but only if we are actively engaged with them. That’s what the first half of this month is about, engagement.

Therefore fear and and lack of self-confidence can subconsciously subvert our interaction with this trine. The thing with trines is they do offer a precious gift, but the down-side is we can sleep through the potentials because they aren’t as charged and in-our-faces as some of the more heated aspects. Don’t let your inner resistances trick you, and lull you into a sleepy state of non-action, because that will not be rewarded now.

Here are some good journaling prompts this month:

Do I believe in myself enough to seize opportunities?

Do I have the temerity to claim what I want?

What is my greatest fear that’s holding me back from expanding?

As we can see this energy is lively to be sure and does feel like a quickening. This lasts until mid-month, and then we see a transition from heavy fire energy to earth energy. Venus enters her own sign of Taurus on the 15th, and then the Sun and Mercury join her in Taurus on the 20th. Taurus tends to slow things down a bit, and reminds us to connect with the simple things of life like touch, good food, and enough rest. After accelerating through Aries the Warrior, we might have a couple scraps and bumps. Enter Taurus, which helps to stimulate that inner calm through ancient earthy animal actions. Remember to catch your breath, and follow that breath into your center core, and try to cultivate a body centered awareness. Then, in Taurus fashion, take these new beginnings, and start to plod along as you nurture them into life. From the quickening to the thickening.

Then, towards the end of the month on the 26th, we have the Scorpio Full Moon. It will be an emotional time, and we will be called back within for some intense internal processing. The form that processing takes will be different for everyone, but our trigger-point emotions will be sensitive and ready to react. The more Taurus body centered awareness you cultivate beforehand, the less likely you will end up in a more moody or broody place.

See how the music of the spheres connect with each other? These energies ebb and flow just like the waters of the ocean hitting the beach. A worthy goal is to work with these energies instead of against them, so that we may put our personal growth and evolution into hyper-drive!

That’s the evolutionary intention, with the goal always – to expand our consciousness.
