New Energetic Cycle Begins!

Today the Sun and Mars are conjunct in Leo- kick-starting a new energetic cycle for the next 2.5 years. The Sun- the king of the cosmos, and Mars- the servant of the Sun, meet up once together every 2.5 years. This meetup can be likened to the King meeting with his servant to instruct him on how to do his bidding. Even though the Sun is the almighty and SOUL of us all, its light cannot permeate our existence without the push from Mars- planet of drive, will, motivation, ambition, and energy.

This conjunction collectively is all about shining your own light. It’s about being authentic, expressing your creativity, finding ways to enjoy life, and quieting the ego through surrendering to your unique self. Mars in Leo is about becoming your own authority (Sun). Mars will set ablaze those things in your life which need that extra push to fulfill the Sun’s wishes. The house that Leo rules in your natal chart will be the area of your life where a new energetic imprint will be left.

With both the King and Servant being in the loud and proud sign of Leo, don’t count on their meeting being a private one. The heat from this fiery meetup  will be felt very strongly.

*Keep in mind that this is a fire year- North Node in Leo, & Year of the Fire Rooster.

Birch Tree June 21- Personality & Transit

If you were born on the longest day of the year  (Summer Solstice) you are beautiful, elegant, and refined. You are energetic and your optimism is contagious. Friendly, you are good natured and charming. You could be a writer or a leader because you are not afraid of big projects. You could do a lot for the benefit of others and be involved in some type of charity work. Your good looks, creativity and charisma open the door for other endevors. You are not oblivious to your life lessons and your memory is great. In love you follow both your intuition and intelligence, and work to have a passionate relationship. You have the quality of a Divine trailblazer but you also appreciate your family and home. Often times, Birch Tree people discover their life purpose early on in life.

During the Birch Tree transit, tempers can come and go in a flash. You can commit to too many projects at once during this time. Opportunities can also present themselves at this time, so it’s important to be flexible. The Summer Solstice marks a time for new beginnings, so expect a lot to transpire over these next 3 months. The word ‘Birch’ came from the Sanskrit word Bhurga- meaning tree whose bark is used for writing upon. This is an excellent time for writing, poetry, fiction etc… Birch is used in many pagan celebrations and rituals- Imbolc- white bark is used to symbolise the return of light along with candles. Beltane- maypole was made of Birch bark. The dark and white colours of the tree indicates rebirth and new beginnings. The notchings in the tree look like eyes- so ESP will be heightened during this transit.  Overall a very busy, psychic, and communicative time!
