Aries New Moon

24 Mar

warrior womanWe should start to feel a definite contrast to some of the challenging Energies we’ve been dealing with these past weeks.  The last New Moon in Pisces may have been an emotional time, with unfinished business coming up or old emotions and patterns that rose to the surface to be handled once and for all.  Then we had the Virgo Full Moon which had its set of challenges as we may have only been looking at everything that was wrong and clueless as to how to handle it.  If you felt that you were at the point of surrender, worry no more as relief is on the way! This is a potent New Moon helping us to feel animated and alive.

The New Moon in Aries on March 27th is a time for sowing seeds, new beginnings and fresh starts.  Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac making this the first New Moon in the Wheel of The Year.  We now have the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Uranus all touring the sign of the Ram helping to energize and fire us up. We could feel ready to get things underway and take action or impatient to get the ball rolling.

Venus retrograde is closely linked to this New Moon putting relationships front and center. Our Goddess of beauty and love has been wearing the mask of the warrior woman lately. War paint and all! We’re willing to fight for what we want, stand up for ourselves or act in our own interests.  And we’re okay with pissing off a few people in the process if need be. During her about-face, we’ve been given the time to think about what it is that we want for ourselves, how we assert ourselves, what we want out of our relationships, how we may have given into too many compromises, how we are appreciated, loved or valued, or not, and most importantly, how we love and value ourselves.  If feeling undervalued and underappreciated, time to look at your relationship with yourself.  Start there.  Everything else is a mirror. The seeds sown at this time will be infused with this Venus energy.

Juno is at a Critical Degree in Capricorn further emphasizing partnerships especially those involving long term commitments or business.

Mars is the ruler of this Aries New Moon and is in Earthy Taurus.  This makes us motivated toward material gain and building up something tangible.

Mars in Taurus also connects positively with Neptune in Pisces and there is a lot of potential for creativity.  We can begin to take real steps and to make sustained efforts in building something that we’ve long envisioned.

Mars and Juno also have a favorable connection so we may be taking steps in establishing a business partnership or the framework of a lasting union or agreement.

The days leading up to this New Moon, Mercury the Messenger faces off with Jupiter in Libra and then links up with Uranus in Aries.  This can bring exciting conversations, unexpected news, big plans and electrifying ideas, perhaps you suddenly have an “aha” moment and see the bigger picture.  Information may be coming in quickly, perhaps requiring a change of plans or mind. Talks could also get a bit heated; maybe you hear something shocking or someone verbally attacks you, maybe you get good news out of the blue or there could be unexpected changes in documents or paperwork; this may involve agreements, legal issues, promotion, advertising or network marketing or perhaps relations with friends and people in a new and wider social circle or groups you’re involved with.

Mercury is also in favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, suggesting that these insights, talks and ideas are in accord with our future goals. Mentally, we can be innovative as well as disciplined, perhaps even learning something new with technology.

Saturn in Sagittarius is still so close to the Galactic Center; the Center of our Galaxy from which Divine inspiration and guidance come forth.  Saturn manifests and materializes and this gives us a tremendous opportunity in the co-creation of our lives.  Saturn hasn’t been to this part of the Zodiac in nearly three decades so it is a big deal!   Some of us may have noticed that our manifestations are happening more quickly or perhaps we are more easily tuning into a higher guidance; this makes it very important to be mindful of what we are creating as it is our responsibility. Saturn will linger in this area as he is getting ready to retrograde on April 6th   through August 25th.  During his backtracking, we may have to review or revisit some of our goals and what success means to us, making sure everything is in alignment with our Truth. Saturn will once again connect with the Galactic Center in November, after that, Saturn won’t visit this area again until late 2046!

Just a few days after this New Moon, on March 30th, Jupiter in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn for the second time.  This is one of those aspects that are shaping our current times especially with social changes and government structures. We see an increasing opposition challenging a consolidation of power and a need for a reformation of rules, policies and structures that are more fair and inclusive as well as mutually beneficial.

On a more personal level, this can mean that there are benefits and opportunities gained through others but the challenge is to tear down some of the walls we’ve build and to have faith in others.

Blessings to All at this Aries New Moon!

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus

8 May

Its Eclipse time and change is in the air. There was much we had to get to the core of lately, and extract any decay or ‘non-essentials’.  Something may have met its end. Don’t worry!  We need to make room for the new!  Several of the personal planets have just had it out with Saturn enabling us to see what needed to go and give us the strength and stamina to move mountains and get the job done. Saturn may have also had us feeling blocked, delayed or frustrated for whatever reason or it could be that there was an issue with a parent, boss or authority figure or even with you as the parent or authority.  Maybe we have been working very hard lately for long term goals or results with little appreciation or compensation. While all of this hard work wasn’t so immediately gratifying, we should start seeing the results or reaping some rewards soon enough.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse in the fertile sign of Taurus will see to the growth of the new seeds we are planting. Taurus is an Earth sign and ruled by Venus, the Goddess of beauty and love. We may literally be getting our hands in the earth and planting seeds. It’s the perfect time to spend in natural surrounds and revel in Mother Nature.  With Pallas in such close aspect, it is very favorable for healing Mother Earth as well as beautifying the landscape.   Pallas in Taurus could also highlight issues with plant based medicine, as well as healing through touch and massage.  We’ll also be getting some help from Mars and Mercury at this Eclipse. While they met up on the 7th-8th,    having our thoughts and actions  in sync on practical matters,  getting things done and ‘handling the baggage’ as indicated by the Sabian Symbol.  At this time, we are concerned with how we are making our lives more secure and enjoyable, our relationships more relate-able and our surroundings more beautiful.  Taurus is a material sign and wants to be comfortable and to have a quality of life, not just earn a paycheck.  This eclipse could help us to come up with practical plans that are bound to last.  Taurus carries on and is unwavering and solid but also slow to move and doesn’t want to give anything up or change easily (that includes possessions, relationships, ideas etc.). With the help of Mercury keeping our ideas grounded, they able to take form as Mars gives us the energy to push on, keep at it and ‘make it happen’.  A Solar Eclipse indicates new beginnings but the South Node is close to this eclipse which is karmic and rooted in the past.  The Scorpio Lunar eclipse on April 25 was about letting go and it could be that we are made aware of what ruts we get stuck in and why.  And we may actually be able to do something about it!  Finally!  We may be able to shake lose what mental ruts or thought patterns that seemed to be permanent and go on forever.  We may be able to use some of our practical gifts, talents or lessons from the past to make something new that we like and that will last as well as provide us with more comfort, security and enjoyment.   We could even be transforming old structures or recycling and making something new (and pretty!).    Pluto and Ceres also go head to head at this eclipse possibly providing a turning point with obsessions and intensity in regard to parenting, child rearing, family / clan issues; parent/child complexes – especially with issues of attachment and separation  and ‘mother love’ vs. self-love as well as issues of nurturing and nutrition. 

This New Moon Solar Eclipse is at 19’31” Taurus.  The Sabian Symbol is “Wisps of clouds, like wings are streaming across the sky”.   We are able to see things from a higher perspective and have become aware of where we may need to change course.  Pallas is in the same degree as this eclipse giving us a broader perspective, enabling us to get the bigger picture, she further helps us in problem solving, trouble shooting and planning.  It seems that after the removal of the decay, we are left with very fertile ground at this eclipse.  Whatever we do now seems to be practical, sustaining and long lasting so make sure it is what you want!
