2010 Aries Ingress aka Spring Equinox

On Maui, the Sun enters Aries on March 20 at 7:32 am HST. Just four days before, it made the annual conjunction with Uranus, thereby carrying the energy of the pattern breaker into the new quarter. We can anticipate radical but not unexpected changes during the next three months.

This chart has 5 planets in the 12th house of the unconscious mind (Jupiter, Uranus in Pisces, Sun, Mercury and Venus in Aries). If, during this quarter, we feel lost and disconnected from our direction, step into the dream time, prayer or mediation to find that path again.

Chiron and Neptune are in Aquarius and they continue to be tightly connected in the 11th house. This pair is a strong influence in our global relationships to be healthy, whole and of the highest spiritual connections.

The Moon is in Taurus, in the 2nd house, suggesting that our possessions are colored by our emotions. Keep those items secure which you have strong connections to or prepare to grieve their departure.

Mars ended its long retrograde period in March and at the Equinox we find it moving forward in Leo in the 4th house of home and property. It is in a trine relationship to the cluster in Aries, boosting our ability to focus and manifest.

Saturn is in the 6th house of day to day work and health of the body, opposing the Aries cluster. We will need to maintain the bones and connective tissues of our bodies, as well as looking at the foundations of our homes (check for termites and other pests, please). It will also keep the energy of the Aries planets from being too out of control.

Pluto is in the 9th, so the changes which are occurring overseas continue to ripple through our island, necessitating a review about what we have built our economy upon.
