The Sun returns to the degree that kicked off this astrological year, "the ruler of a nation." At its essence, this energy is about finding and empowering our inner selves.
As a result of this today, a sense of structure, order, self-discipline, and expansion seeks us. We gain new awareness and understanding about better methods or how to do better with things. Mercury, the Messenger, moves to the first degree of the zodiac, 1 Aries, with energy of the symbol of "a woman has risen out of the ocean and a seal is embracing her." So, brand new ideas enter the field today. Brand new insight into how to be a better ruler of our own inner nation is also delivered. Mercury is working hard on this.
Another key theme developing today revolves around reviving and revitalizing. Is there something inside of you that wants to be brought back to life? Slow-moving Uranus, the planet responsible for delivering the massive shift in frequencies this past year, moves to the degree of "two prim spinsters sitting together in silence." This energetic will be in effect for the remainder of this lunar month and releases spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental blockages. You can sit in silence with yourself and ask the other side what it needs to feel alive again. There may be something inside of you that is trying to rise up in your inner nation inside of you. As the beginning of the new astrological year approaches, all sorts of things are springing to life. Tune in to what this is inside of you.
Mars spends its last full day in its home sign of Aries. It leaves with a final attempt to nurture and enrich us. It desires to strengthen our true identity so that individual uniqueness is better expressed and manifested in the world. It strives to give us courage to be ourselves.
If you encounter challenge, difficulty, or interruption, it may be helpful to stop and put on different lenses of perception (look at it from different points of view). Solutions are found by discerning what is missing or what isn't being acknowledged or taken into account.
Today is a day of changes, and that is a good thing because we are pivoting and adapting to better ways and taking measure of our lives. It's also good because we are taking up new rule within our own inner nation. The inner world of greatness seeks life. Let's find it and project it out today.
