I post so frequently that many important articles about major astrological influences slip downstream fairly quickly. Today we revisit more than a few that bear a new look, since they’re still major influences.
First, remember that we’re still in the season influenced by the chart of the Vernal Equinox. For your reconsideration, here’s It's the Vernal (Spring) Equinox 2012 - What's Coming in April, May, and June.
Then we have all the inner planets going in and out of retrograde! It started with Mercury in March-April, which still affects us given we haven’t yet gotten to the Superior Conjunction of Mercury and the Sun, set to occur on May 27. Here’s the article from when Mercury last went direct, very definitely affecting the times we’re going through right now.
And of course I’ll be composing articles on the coming Mercury retrograde in Leo in a few weeks.
You will recall that Mars entered in November 2011, and it’s still there until early July! The point where Mars went direct will definitely impact us all for many months to come, so please take a new look at Long Wave Astrology in 2012-2013– Mars Stationary Direct at 4 Virgo Affecting Us Through 2014.
With all the recent flurry of activity around the Gemini Solar Eclipse, these articles slipped downstream quickly. But we’re still in the heart of Venus Retrograde as it continues to slow down, approaching its “occultation” with the Sun in early June. This is a very important on-going influence that has already produced effects for a lot of people, and will continue to for a few more weeks. For your reconsideration, Astrology in 2012 - When Mercury, Venus, and Mars Go Retrograde, What Does It Mean and How Are They Related To Past and Future Retrogrades?
We’re also directly inside of the influence of the “3 High Moons” of the Northern Hemisphere's Spring, having been through the Full Moons of Aries-Libra and Taurus-Scorpio, with the Full Moon of Gemini-Sagittarius coming shortly. The Aries-Libra Full Moon is said to be the Full Moon of Life Renewal, whereas the Taurus-Scorpio Full Moon is the Wesak Festival, where the “Eternal Buddha Nature” sends out an energy of compassion affecting the entire world for the following year.
The Full Moon of Gemini-Sagittarius is the “Christ Fest,” where the World Teacher takes the Wesak energy and distributes it throughout the world in a new global teaching for the year. As you know, the Full Moon merely releases the energy of the previous New Moon, or in other words, the Full Moon puts the seed of the previous New Moon into play.
While these Full Moons usher in the Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, the signs involved still move energies through the activation (Cardinal) signs through the stabilizing (Fixed) signs to the distributive (Mutable) signs, regardless of what hemisphere we live in. To understand more about the larger energies in play at present and into the future, please take a new look at these Spring Lunations that affect everything going on between March 2012 and March 2013.
The articles about the recent New Moon “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse at 1 Gemini are still on the front page, so take a new look if you want to refresh your knowledge of what will dominate the landscape for the next 3 ½ years. They have links to previous Solar Eclipses from 2010 and 2011 that also affect all of us, and will for quite a while to come. And of course, there will be several Christ Fest Full Moon Lunar Eclipse articles on the way beginning next week, so stay tuned!
