The spring equinox takes place on March 20, at 4:44 A.M. PDT. This is probably the most important astronomical and astrological date of year. The position and condition of the planets on this day are believed to carry their significance over the next twelve months. Many ancient cultures paid close attention to this phenomena.

Mercury opposes Saturn and is reflective of our collective fears regarding the economy and the overall state of affairs. Sure enough, locally here in Vancouver we have already walked the plank with no way back to the safety of the ship. Homelessness and the winter Olympics are just a couple of topics we can go on about at length, never mind the all out gang war taking place in the streets. Everything is serious and all things are scrutinized. In a nut shell we have big work to do.

The world economy has seen its worst shake up in half a century. Mercury sits close to Uranus at the time of the equinox and is a harbinger of good news and innovations. That’s the key to the times folks. Life is taking its twists and turns and we must adapt and make do with what is offered. We may discover that there are myriad ways for us to create new experiences and livelihoods in accordance with the times. We cannot move backwards; we can only move towards the future. As a symbol of the times, a dear old friend stopped by for a chat the other day and we carried on about some of the ideas we had in order to accommodate the present day reality. I knew from this conversation that his family and mine would never do without, not while we’re alive. We will survive and we will no doubt streamline and sustain, as will the rest our culture and society. It truly is an exciting time and it will not let up for many generations to come. I wish that I could be around for the exciting changes destined to occur over the next 50 years. Please remember that we are not human beings having spiritual experiences, but spiritual beings having human experiences.

The stars are telling of a time in which great changes are coming to the planet as we continue our growth and evolution onwards to higher, lighter environments with more love and light than we can imagine. Relax, reflect, review and renew is the mantra of the times.
