*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt.
For an explanation of how energy affects you please click here.
The universe may appear as though everything that exists within it is separate, however, we are all inextricably interconnected, as we are all part of the same energy. Within the universe there is a divine matrix, which is a grid of energy with invisible threads that weave and bind us all together as one seamless vibrating force.
Even though we all belong to the same energy, we perceive ourselves as separate due to the speed of our personal vibration and the specific frequency we each exist on. However, the energy that permeates earth as well as the wavelengths that come in from the outer universe can all have powerful and dramatic effects on our electromagnetic fields (auras), as we are transmitters and receivers of energy.
Throughout the duration of this week there will be many geomagnetic storms taking place, as is normally the case around an equinox. The solar flares that erupt from the sun during these storms can disturb Earth’s magnetic field and have a catastrophic effect on human behaviour.
Research has shown that solar flares can put our circadian rhythm out of sync, so we may find we are sleeping at unusual times or that we feel more fatigued than usual. We also may be more moody and feeling irritable and short-tempered. During this cosmic disturbance, if we are extra sensitive to energy, it is also likely that we could feel nauseous, anxious, dizzy, thirsty, shaky and also suffer from short-term memory loss and experience headaches.**
On March 21st we will also experience incoming energy from a comet, which is the fifth closet comet to fly by earth since records began. Comets also carry magnetic energy and they may leave debris behind as they pass, which could be seen as a meteor shower and may also effect our energy, though not as drastically.
This spring equinox, in the Northern Hemisphere on the 20th March, is the beginning of a new astrological year and it brings with it an intense vibrational and transformational energy wave. It is also the closure of the previous vibrational wave, which began on 22nd December 2015 (the winter solstice).
Solar winds, which cause auroras (large areas of green or red colour in the sky), are particularly strong around an equinox and have a high impact on everyone on Earth however they mostly affect those who are highly sensitive to energy. As equinoxes signify awakening we will all be elevated to a higher level of conscious awareness as this wave gains momentum. The level of consciousness each person reaches will depend on how open they are to the energy and also in relation to the unique stage they were at prior to this ascension.
As the equinox signifies balance, with the day and night being in equal measures on that day, it also prepares us for a new phase and the theme of it is balancing dark and light energy. This means that anything that is currently going on in our own lives or society will start to find equilibrium, although this is not going to be an easy feat. Not everyone likes change and not everyone is willing to adjust their frequency to a higher one, however, it will take place in ways that are against each individual’s control.
These intensely felt energy waves could cause an emotional release of unhealed, denied or unacknowledged emotional or psychological wounds that we might have knowingly or unknowingly previously suppressed.
There may currently be happenings triggering these wounds within our own personal lives and also on a wider scale. It is possible these energetic injuries will cause us to experience physiological tension and internal friction and this is because we are starting to see things that we either strongly disapprove of or that make us question our ability to naturally accept and understand one another, including people’s beliefs, values and opinions.
During this week brilliant rays of light will be shined on these darker aspects of our lives and the lighter aspects of our lives will be touched by some of the darkness. A purging or unearthing of certain dark entities will take place so that things that have been holding us back can be acknowledged, processed and then let go of. When these things are brought to light on the surface the current energy will assist in providing acceptance, understanding and forgiveness and all karmic attachments to the situation will naturally dissipate.
Although it may sound unsettling to think of our immediate and distant situations being shaken up, it is a vital process so that dense, low vibrational elements in our own lives and beyond can be heard and given the opportunity to be released so that our energy and universal energy can flow freely.
One way to view this great change is to look at what is happening in the U.S. presidential campaign. People are able to voice what they may have previously felt was unacceptable to express. Although we can negatively judge these outbursts it is necessary that everything that we store within is exposed so that society as a whole can deal with the hidden emotions and feelings, that when ignored breed contempt and dysfunction.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ~ Carl Jung
Whether we like it or not, many of us are being forced to face views, opinions and also attitudes that we may find unpleasant, or even in some cases what we feel are ridiculous. Many people are on totally opposite sides of the scale and are struggling to see or understand how or why people are aligning with a particular Party. As a lot of us are airing our grievances, whether verbally, digitally or just through the energy we are emitting, we are freeing much of our pent up tension that is caused when other people do not agree with or refuse to look at the reasons we feel the way we do.
Although, it is understandable that it may look as though this turbulence is harming our societies, it is also necessary for every shade, from the dark through to the light, to find harmony and an interconnection with all others. It is similar to the Yin and Yang opposing but complimentary energies. All sides must work together to be able to co-exist and create a standard of life that is beneficial and effective for all concerned.
Whether we believe our own values or opinions to be “better,” “higher,” or more sustainable than anyone else’s, it is all perception and each person on this planet has their own feelings and beliefs about everything. While there will be millions or even billions of people who will feel the same way as us to a certain extent, no one on this planet feels exactly the same way about everything. This energy is here to ruffle us up and show us that we can never pertain to be “good,” “light,” or “better” than anyone else when we are dismissing and rejecting anyone just because their minds do not align with our own, whether this person is someone very close to us or entirely unknown.
“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.” ~ Carl Jung
This week the energy is on acceptance of the dark and light inequality that is prevalent in many relationships and most societies. It is within each one of us, the only difference is some people express more of one side than the other, while others maintain a balance.
Day by day we get further from the balance of this equinox, and we are taking small but significant steps toward the summer solstice period where the presence of the sun (light) is drowning out segments of the darkness, so our days will experience more light than dark. This dance will play out across the Earth as the light infiltrates our vibration so that it rises to one of acceptance for humanity as a whole. We will recognize more than ever before how we need to unite to bring peace and harmony, whether in our immediate relationships or for the health of the planet and everything that exists on it.
We are equal beings, despite our visual appearance, location, culture, financial status or beliefs and whether that equality is something we need to find in our romantic relationships, family dynamics, workplaces or further afield, the energy following on from the equinox will bring these things to our immediate attention.
This week we can tap fully into compassion so that we learn from one another by looking outwards through eyes and hearts that are filled with care, understanding, consideration and heart-felt connection. Immediately we will notice how the illusions we have around us fall down as we start to see the overall bigger picture rather than viewing our lives through a very narrow lens.
This is the time to accept and embrace all other beings with unconditional love and lift each other up with the vibration we are putting out the world. Einstein explained how energy travels, entangles and interlocks, so regardless of distance, this higher vibrational energy will reach wherever it is meant to go and will be carried along on the frequency set by the current energy waves taking place at this time. We will feel more intuitive than ever before and this will help us to gain the clarity and insight necessary to achieve an intrinsic understanding of the people we come into contact with.
This can also be tricky though, as we may not always appreciate what we are shown, which brings us back to bringing compassion and empathy into each of our connections.
As we are heading towards a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra on March 23rd, we are also reminded of the requirement for balance, as this is the defining characteristic of the Libra star sign.
As we are now in the astrological sign of Aries, we may also be feeling a little fiery and hyperactive, so we should remind ourselves to be patient and not make hasty decisions that could damage any potential relationship.
Whether we sabotage a connection with someone we are close to or someone distantly, we leave an energetic footprint that we may come to regret. As long as we act with integrity and keep our mind focused on a genuine and loving intention for all concerned, we will likely not go far wrong.
