The Spring Equinox, or Vernal Equinox, represents rebirth, vitality, an awakening after a slumber. A new year of energy bursts forth in March, much more than our traditional calendar observation in January. With this Equinox we have some added challenges, Venus and Jupiter are in retrograde. These planets affect our relationships and intellect. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of this week will be very challenging, more challenging than a full moon by quite a bit. You may find relationships end suddenly, you may be on edge and less patient as well. On these days take time for yourself, measure your words carefully, and carry some stones to help your energy stay positive and peaceful. Many thanks to Earth Keeper for clueing us into these Equinox happenings.
