Hello, Astro friends!
As we stand at the threshold of Sagittarius season, the cosmos gifts us with an intriguing blend of tea—a blend between Mars and asteroid Ceres in Scorpio, gently caressed by the transformative influence of Pluto in Capricorn.
This cosmic blend brings a deep and thrilling sense of anticipation to our season.
Imagine it as a cosmic stage where Mars and Ceres swirl in Scorpio's depths, orchestrated by the transformative hand of Pluto in Capricorn—a celestial ballet painting the sky with anticipation. Transitioning into the domain of Sagittarius, the majestic home of the Centaurs—mythical creatures with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse—amplifies the wild and untamed aspects of our nature, creating a brew of excitement and adventure.
As you embark on this cosmic journey, take a moment to reflect on how the spirited energy of Sagittarius resonates within you.
Now, let’s explore this cosmic blend and spill some tea, shall we?
Mars in Scorpio: The Cosmic Warrior: Mars, the fiery warrior of the cosmos, dons the enigmatic cloak of Scorpio. Scorpio is a fixed water sign, symbolized by the Scorpion, known for its intensity, passion, and depth. Mars represents energy, action, passion, courage, and assertiveness. It is associated with ambition, drive, and our ability to take initiative. Mars is also connected to our primal instincts and desires. Mars is at home in Scorpio, allowing us to fully express these traits. Here, its dynamic energy merges with the depth and intensity of Scorpio's waters. This pairing sparks a energetic synergy, inviting us to delve fearlessly into the realms of passion, transformation, and the mysteries of the soul.
Asteroid Ceres: Nurturing the Celestial Battlefield: Alongside Mars, the nurturing presence of asteroid Ceres enters the celestial stage, offering her benevolent touch to the cosmic dance. Often revered as the Earth Mother, Ceres is a Roman goddess of agriculture, equivalent to the Greek goddess Demeter. She is the goddess of fruitful soil and agriculture, bringing forth a tender embrace to the celestial proceedings. Yet, she, too, is a celestial being with desires and needs. Like the ebb and flow of cosmic energies, when the resonance of her wants goes unmet, Ceres may withhold her nurturing power. So, Ceres inspires us to delve into the depths of the Scorpio’s water, to find our deepest desires and how we want to be nurtured the aspect of ourselves.
Sextile to Pluto in Capricorn: Embracing Cosmic Transformation: As Mars and Ceres unite in Scorpio, they form a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. A sextile, a friendly and resourceful aspect, often requires conscious activation. Pluto, the harbinger of profound transformation, fixes its transformative gaze upon the cosmic duo. This celestial alignment encourages us to courageously embrace change, drawing on the potency of Scorpio and the structured wisdom of Capricorn.
Navigating the Cosmic Landscape:
Passion Unleashed: Feel the surge of passion and determination as Mars traveling through last degrees of Scorpio's depths. Channel this energy into pursuits that resonate with your soul's desires.
Nurturing Growth: Allow Ceres to guide your nurturing instincts. Focus on self-care and extend compassion to those around you. Consider how you can cultivate and nurture your aspirations.
Transformational Intentions: With Pluto's transformative touch, set intentions for personal growth and evolution. This cosmic alignment empowers us to shed old layers, like a celestial phoenix rising.
Sagittarian Exploration: As we step into Sagittarius season, let the fiery archer's energy infuse your journey with curiosity and a thirst for adventure. Use the Mars-Pluto sextile as a launching pad for expansive exploration.
Blend these cosmic ingredients of passion, nurturing growth, transformational intentions, and Sagittarian exploration as you navigate the celestial landscape, empowering yourself to embark on a journey of self-discovery and expansion. Here's my suggested ritual, but the most important thing is to connect with the energy of the cosmos and build a personal relationship with the stars. So tune into the energy, listen to their whispers, and feel free to tweak the ritual to fit your vibe!

Chamomile: for relaxation and calming energy.

Setting the Scene:

Begin by cleansing your tea ingredients. Hold each herb or spice in your hands and visualize releasing any stagnant or negative energy.
Focus on the intention of your self-care evening. As you blend the tea, infuse it with intentions for relaxation, nurturing, and personal growth.
Measure out your chosen herbs and spices. Intuitively connect with ingredients and use a ratio that suits your taste preferences. For example, create a base of chamomile and apple tea with a hint of ginger and lavender. (And I can tell you that a little bit of lavender goes a long way!)
