10 The Water Wheel// 73 Al-Awwal, Sacred Surprise
Important Dates/Transits: 3/25 Third Quarter Moon in Sagittarius
Key Takeaways: Jupiter Tings (Sagittarius, Pisces), Consequential rewards
10 The Water Wheel- The Lord of the Forces of Life
Last calendar year the guiding theme was Nourishment of the Soul. We prepared both vessels and our spirits for deeper embodiment through the lens of meeting our needs and deserves and acclimating to proper cleansing and maintenance. For many of us it meant monthly energetic alignment (resuming May 2022) along with our targeted reflection and meditation. We also prioritized habits of effective communication.
For many, the end of March via the Vernal Equinox heralds the true resetting of the year, This resonates heavily through the vibration of the number 10, conventionally experiences as a transitory closing, both an ending and a beginning.
The basic interpretation of this card is that this energy signifies the progression into the next level or stage of something, that your current experiences are the results of your actions and behavior. Things are unfolding according to divine alignment and the cyclical nature of living and growing. Remaining fortune-minded and remembering to count your blessings helps to maintain forward momentum. Instead of thinking “one step forward, two steps back”, maybe expand your awareness to two/three steps forward to the one step back. Loss, disappointment, grief, and failure are as natural as gain, pleasure, joy, and success. How they inform your experience is up to you and the way you govern your energy.
What kind of support do you have to help you through the lows of life?
What do you have in place to help you acknowledge and celebrate the highs?
Astrological Aspect: Jupiter
Jupiter is known to many as the planet of expansion. They tell us that what you feed grows and what you protect thrives. Since this message has much to do with consequential rewards I advise we focus on the protective aspect to Jupiter.
As we grow, how are we assuring our gains aren’t in vain that we are not growing in the wrong direction or feeding the wrong things>
If you are someone who aligns themselves to the cycles of the moon, (I highly recommend doing this), you can pay extra attention to the phases in Jupiter ruled signs, Pisces and Sagittarius. This month includes the ¾ moon on the 25th at 19degrees of Sagittarius (interesting to note as the January lunar transit of note was also a ¾ moon on the 25th of the month). According to Isidor Kozminsky 19degrees of Sagittarius “denotes one of philosophical force capable of manifesting from the silent hidden into the outer. Therefore their quality is explained in no ordinary terms. They have much personal force and magnetism which, if exerted for high ends, will become a harbinger for peace on this planet of experience and suffering. It is a symbol of Awakening.”
The season of ritual fasting (Lent beginning on 3/2 followed directly by Ramadan beginning at it’s end on 4/1) begins this month. Fasting is designed to enhance and develop one’s spiritual connectivity and embodiment, merging the inner spiritual world with the outer physical/interpersonal one.
The Sun also enters Pisces this month on the 14th.
Another way to focus is to check your natal chart to see what house it is in. Then focus your expansion and protection efforts there in your Jupiter house. For example, that means I would be focusing on 12th house things; shadow working through transitive endings, things I hold sacred, messages-wisdom that come in dreams or meditation, and past life aspects. (To get a breakdown of how to focus on your Jupiter tings this month book a DEEP DIVE consultation with me).
