The cycle of our soul renews March 20th; time for our life to begin again. The zodiac calendar celebrates its new year on March 20th. Nature and mankind begin the cycle of life again.
As we flow with natural rhythms and cycles with our personal routines, plans, activities, and goals we stay in synch with the cycle of nature and our energies are easier for us to manage.
This is why New Year’s resolutions don’t stick; winter is for endurance; spring is for new growth.
The cycle of our soul-hood is represented in the zodiac. We have stages of human-ness and stages of soul-ness. These stages can be seen through the zodiacal lens of the twelve astrological signs.
The cycle of the soul is divided into four quadrants: Inner self awareness; inner awareness of the outside world; outer awareness of the outside world; outer awareness.
From March 20 (just before noon, PDT) until April 19, the sun will be passing through the constellation of Aries. Aries is the sign that rules beginnings so now is the time for new beginnings for everyone. New wellness routines, new patterns of behavior, new attitudes, new garden preparations, and new projects either personal or professional.
Now is the time for all those New Year’s resolutions! The forces of nature are with us as we spring into life re-newed. Keyword for Aries is, ‘I am.’ Whatever we say after “I am….” we are.
April 20 to May 20: the sun will be passing through the zodiac sign of Taurus so this will be the time to bring practical application to all the newness that was initiated in Aries.
The Taurean keyword, ‘I have,’ will reinforce your ability to use our personal resources to see us through the inevitable phases of weakened resolve that comes with new habit patterns. The energy of material application is available during Taurus to establish and build upon the energies initiated in the Aries cycle.
May 21 to June 20, the sun will be cycling through Gemini and this energy phase will assist us in developing new concepts and ideas about whatever we’ve renewed in our life, and communicating it to those in the world around us.
Gemini completes the first quadrant of beingness: inner self awareness. These first three stages of beingness have revolved around the world of nature and humanity stirring and becoming aware of itself. The first three signs represent these phases of selfness.
The Gemini keyword, ‘I think,’ during this period means to think about how these renewed patterns are integrating into our life. Gemini curiosity energy is available to bring versatility and adaptability to our new self; new ways to integrate our new self into our life.
The sun in cardinal Cancer from June 21 through July 21, and begins the second quadrant of the cycle of the soul: inner awareness of the outside world.
While the sun passes through the zodiac sign of Cancer, let its nurturing waters permeate the new growth into all areas of our life. Let the emotional dynamics that come with this water sign’s energy pattern deepen our understanding of your new self.
Cancer represents personal foundations and inner emotional levels which is why the keyword for this sign is, ‘I feel.’
July 22 through August 22 the sun is passing through the zodiac sign of Leo. The fire sign Leo brings us self expression energy and physical energy in abundance.
In the summertime, we’re using our bodies to be active, we’re outdoors taking in the sunshine of the season.
Like the adolescent testing the waters of individuation, the soul in Leo wants approval and respect from others, for this reinforces the development of self respect. So, this is the cycle to show off your new self to the world and let the creative energies of Leo project outward into the world around you. ‘I will’ is Leo’s keyword.
Virgo is the earth sign in this phase, providing the energy of discrimination to our new self so that we can separate the wheat from the chaff of our renewed self.
The self discipline energy of Virgo is available from August 23 through September 22, and helps us bring into practical application whatever we’ve willed into our life during Leo.
‘I analyze,’ is Virgo’s keyword, and now is the time to take a detailed look at our new selves and release yet more of any unneeded qualities or features in our life.
From September 23 through October 22, the air sign of Libra brings us to the first phase of the development of our soul powers, and the third quadrant: outer awareness of the outside world.
In Aries through Virgo, we’re developing our personality; now, we must grow a soul and the first step in this process is through relationships.
Libra rules relationships in the zodiac. It’s time to integrate our new self and new habit patterns into our relationships, and learn cooperation and compromise. Balancing self-assertiveness with the cooperation required of intimate relationships is what Libra energy brings.
October 23 to November 21 is when the sun will be passing through the constellation of Scorpio bringing us its watery, penetrating energies so that we can become deeply involved with the true nature of ourselves.
Now is the time to investigate the mysteries of life and ourselves, and let the process of birth, death and rebirth happen in us. ‘I create,’ is Scorpio’s keyword, so now is the time to let our new self be creative and allow the qualities of our new self to penetrate into all areas of your life.
Sagittarius is the last fire sign and the end of the third quadrant. Enthusiastic, aspiring Sagittarius is from November 22 to December 20 this year, the month to allow our super consciousness to pull our new self up to its highest level of actualization.
Understanding the philosophy of this new cycle will help us build faith in our life and develop perceptions necessary to sustain our new self.
From December 21 to January 19, the sun will be in the sign Capricorn and the final quadrant of: outer self-awareness commences. The earth sign Capricorn will bring new material heights to our new self. Patience and hard work will be rewarded during this time. Family and tradition will call us to balance the ambitiousness inherent in Capricorn, with the importance of connecting with family and friends.
The sun will cross through the zodiac sign of Aquarius from January 20 to February 17. This air sign will bring its reforming energy to our new self so that we can adopt new and improved ideas to the self we’ve been developing all year. This is the time to let ourselves be as unique and bold as we can possibly be for we will be called to serve humanity with the self that we’ve become and then return to life what we’ve gathered this year.
The cycle of the soul will complete from February 18 to March 19, and now is the time to draw into our spiritual self and allow the winter of the soul to let what is now our old self begin to die away so that the upcoming cycle can renew us once more.
The keyword for Pisces is, ‘I believe.’ Let the watery, mystical Piscean energy move us to deepen our belief in life and ourselves, and express the wisdom that comes from having lived a whole lifetime…once again.
