The first formal declaration of independence took place this day in 1320 in Scotland, as the Sun was traveling through Aries, the sign of independent action. Today both the Sun and the Moon are conjoined in Aries, making it a powerful day for declaring your "I" versus "We." Mars is the ruling planet of Aries. By engaging his fiery energy we will find the power to transmit our call to freedom. He will lead us boldly, blazing new trails of initiative and courage. So I ask you to close your eyes, centering, quieting. Engage Muladhara, the root chakra at the base of the spine. Embrace the radiant red energy of this first chakra. Feel its vibrancy grow within you. When you have vividly connected to the sense of stability and groundedness that Muladhara brings, allow the energy to rise up within you like a shaft of ruby light connecting Earth to the heavens. Radiate outward, reaching for the red planet. Attempt to connect your ray of light to the frequency that Mars is emanating. Earth unites with fire. When you feel the link, be open to the messages that come through as you declare "I am free!
