This week is very special to all kabbalists, since it is the much anticipated Full Moon of Lunar Adar (Pisces), the cosmic window of all miracles: PURIM! Full moons are renowned for their ability to channel a very powerful and concentrated energy on all of mankind, as well as nature. In fact, medieval kabbalists and healers would only collect certain plants during full moons, to ensure optimal potency.
Twice a year, under planet Jupiter's influence, a cosmic window for the impossible to become possible opens up. The first one is during the holiday of lights under the sign of Sagittarius, (also known as Chanukah), and the second one occurs right now, and its name is Purim. This year, we have a double whammy, as it happens to also be the astronomical start of spring! Spring equinox and the holiday of miracles at the same time – fantastic!
What are we required to do in order to connect with this wonderful window of energy?
First, simply connect to universal JOY! Right now, the cosmos is filled with water and emotions. Strangely, Mercury is already in retrograde motion, showing us that joy needs to flow from within ourselves, from the depth of our souls. It’s time to abandon all our negative past experiences, and open up to the newness of spring and the start of a new cycle of life.
When you think about it, the most intense moments of joy in our lives come from sharing with others and being a part of the greater good. It’s no coincidence that the strongest astrological house this week is the sixth house, the domain of service. Therefore, our second focus right now should be serving others in Virgo simplicity. Extend a hand outside of your comfort zone and add care to your daily routine as much as you can!
This week is all about simple love, simple joy, and simple Light! By connecting to this energy, the window of miracles will open up for us. The plan of attack is as follows: be merry, open your heart, share your Light all around, and look at life with pure “Virgo-like” eyes. This is the time to draw as much joy as we can from the cosmic bank to last the whole year to come.
Mark your calendars for the connecetions happening at your local Kabbalah Centre on the evenings of Wednesday, March 20th and Thursday, March 21st. Happy Purim, everyone!
