Crescent Moon Phase: persevere

Moon in Gemini

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Kali, Goddess of Endings and Beginnings

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Seth, God of the North, God of Enlightenment

Skill: take things from a lower level to a higher level

True Alignments:  clarity, new understanding of something, the quest to be wiser, releasing the past, faith in the power to heal and change, self-examination that leads to a change, mourning a loss, getting serious, spiritually guided and directed, recognizing what it has taken to withstand and learn, aiming for the ideal (and believing one deserves it), completing

Catalysts for Change: stress, feelings of rejection, repeating seemingly endless cycles or ways of being, superficial, battles for control, blocking forward movement, not honoring one's feelings and efforts, notwithstanding, feeling a lack of direction, loss of faith, clinging to the past and clinging to illusions, not recognizing the effects of one's actions on others

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a table set for an evening meal" (setting things in place, re-ordering, preparing, setting expectations)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres" (recalibration of consciousness)

Today, things "mature."  People, places, situations, conditions, feelings, and reactions move from one level of development to another - a higher one, a wiser one.

In many ways, things mature to the point of being  "reborn" today.  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "the purging of the priesthood" (clearing and resetting, particularly spiritual understanding).  Mercury is discharging the energetic of "an Easter promenade" (celebrating the new).  Saturn is discharging the energetic of "an Easter sunrise service" (joining together for the new).  That is a lot of energy for rebirth.

Rebirth means transitioning from a state of degeneration or immobility to a state of regeneration or mobility.  Ways of being and behaving, thinking and acting, feeling and responding change today.  All of this aims to take things to the next level.  It applies to everything, as energy is pervasive.

Adding further data about the day's energetics, Neptune has just moved from the degree in the sky of "an aviator in the clouds" (10 Pisces) to "men traveling a narrow path, seeking illumination" (11 Pisces).  Things that were cloudy become clear.  This is a major influence that will be in effect until April 10.  Since Neptune is very far out in the solar system, it's orbit is long; so it takes a long time for it to change locations or degrees in the sky, and thus change energetics.  Neptune's specialties are the polarities of things being cloudy and things being clear.  The highest octave of Neptune's dynamic is to spiritually illuminate and enlighten.

Shedding old ways is inherent with rebirth.  Grief and feelings of loss can accompany it.  This effect is amplified with the Earth discharging the energetic of "a flag at half-mast in front of a public building."  This is particularly focused on achievements today, and the effort one has expended to get where one is or see what one sees.  Today's energy wants us to move on: to move from Venus discharging  "a petrified forest" (stuck on something - an idea, belief, way, feeling, relationship, habit, etc.) and more towards Mars at "a little child learning to walk" (entering a new phase of experience).

As a finale for the changes and rebirth of today, the Moon will oppose Saturn at 7:54 pm ET/11:54 pm UT at "the head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker."

Let's follow the energy and grow.
