The new moon is coming up and it’s a doozy folks. If you have hung around the page long enough you know that new moons start each lunar month and that it is a prime time to set intentions and start short term plans and goals. This new moon is happening in Aries where it will also conjunct Uranus and square Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer.
What does all of that goobley gook mean? Be prepared for your life, your outlook, your environment to change. Emotions will be running high as they always are when the moon moves into Aries. There is a certain amount volatility and losing ourselves to the emotions of the moment that happens at this time. Sometimes it is bravery. Sometimes it is foolishness. Either way, we tend to cross into unplanned territory. When this is combined with the seemingly erratic nature of Uranus ,we get a recipe for spiritual insights and inspirations to shake the very foundation of who we are on an individual level. Aries is all about the single cell, the ego, the unique individual and since our emotions become more in tune with this during the moon’s transit, Uranus will give real insight into who we are and how we yearn to break free. Uranus shocks and Aries is more than capable of being the lone wolf operative that is willing to do so.
The moon and sun will also be in a tense aspect with Pluto and Jupiter. The heavenly bodies of destruction and expansion will be at odds with the yin and yang cores of us. Pluto in Capricorn wants to tear down old traditional power structures. With this setup it will seem to be very hard for us to let go in a way that is quiet or gracious. We may rail and scream but we need to lean into it in the most seamless way that we can. (Since Mars, the ruling planet of Aries is currently retrograde, we may be less inclined to fight for as long as we would). Jupiter in Cancer is also tensly aspecting the new moon. Our desire to connect and expand on our roots and traditions is heavy with this placement and at odds with so many other configurations happening currently. This square might entice us to expand our foothold, especially on an emotional level before we are able to fully disconnect from what no longer serves us.
This new moon wants us to get ready. As much as we want to rush forward, our best bet is to rush inward. Use the insights that we garner during this time to do some serious emotional and spiritual cleaning. The universe seems to be conspiring to help us do so real inner work. Use the courage that is a huge part of Aries to not stop and get the work done. Think twice before you speak. Be kinder to others because we are all feeling overrun and on edge.
