The Spring Equinox heralds the beginning of the new year, as the Sun moves above the equator once again, bringing more light and warmth here in the northern hemisphere.
March is when passion and energy bring focus to our new plans for the year.
As more sunshine warms us all up, sap once again flows with life — stimulating growth in nature. So too our Mars nature answers within — we are purified and release the past.
With the uprush of male energy, we turn outward to express and manifest. Let this Mars energy be more playful and creative — make love [not war], have fun, rejoice, be uplifted.
Shake off dormant drudge and sludge of the winter months as light and new life return.
The Aries New Moon arrives as we leave behind the month of March and head into April. To work with the magic of this New Moon, no matter where in the world we are — this night of March 31st and April 1st these energies are at their peak.
Being the first sign of the zodiac, Aries energy is all about new beginnings. As the New Moon brings the start of a new lunar cycle, these beginnings are amplified.
This combination of energy makes the Aries New Moon one of the best opportunities in the year for planning what new beginnings or new chapter we wish to start in our lives.
Kundalini Yoga suggests that a New Age calls for its own words to live by. These five sutras of the Aquarian Age are the guiding principles they recommend. The Aquarian Age calls us to develop spiritual stamina. — Snatam Kaur Khalsa
The Aquarian Age calls us to develop spiritual stamina, clarity of character, the capacity to forgive, the ability to process our emotions, and the will to surrender to do so. As we continue to grow and change through life’s demands, we need flexibility — both mentally and physically.
Each sutra has a mantra and a meditation associated with it. Below you will find commentary for each sutra, in addition to the mantra and meditation instructions.
The Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age
- Recognize that the other person is you.
- There is a way through every block.
- When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
- Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
- Vibrate the Cosmos. The Cosmos shall clear the path.
May we all learn to grow and flow with grace and glory!
