There was a new moon this morning, 7:24 am ET to be exact, in the sign of Aries. The sun meet up with the moon in Aries at 18 degrees to start a new lunar chapter. The sun in Aries already ups the general bravery factor. People often associate that bravery in Aries with fearlessness but it is not so much fearlessness as it is a compelling need to do what they feel needs to be done. The fear is still there but it is surmounted by a bigger fear of being stuck and missing out.
This new moon definitely has us itching and willing to venture out. The configuration also remind me of Leelo Dallas in The Fifth Element. Why? Well because like Aries, Leelo had that spark. That special something that made her unique, first of her kind. Willing to fight for her cause even if it meant her own death (sun in Aries) and focused on it in a way that spurred her forward even when the deck was stacked against her (moon in Aries). Not to mention she caused a lot of head injuries lol.
There is also the sudden nature of her coming into being and the serendipitous way that she met Corbin Dallas that is indicative of the Uranus in Aries conjunction to the sun and moon. Intuitive leaps forward both mentally by the scientist and physically by Leelo caused a change in the tide and the course of human history in this movie. Those same scientists and Leelo engage in a power struggle that exposes weaknesses in government bodies, so much so that they do not understand when there authority is being undetermined from multiple sides. That can be associated with the square that the new moon has with Pluto in Capricorn.
Searching for what she knew to be right helped not just herself but others. She knew her purpose and was willing to act to make it happen. She even made a plan, albeit a hasty one, and it allowed her to stay her course. The point is her plan was linked to her own sense of moral obligation and her need to fulfill her individual purpose. I would say that that could be associated with the trine to retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius.
Okay, so how does this help us? Be like Leelo…or not. This new moon is a time to align our actions with our ideals. Like Leelo, there may be those who have their own suggestions for how we should implement these ideas into our live but it is ultimately up to us to get, move, and make it happen. Sudden barriers could pop up, especially seeing as how we are going to have three retrograde planets (Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) before the full moon comes but trusting in that plan and our ability to make progress even when “moving slow” is essential.
Focus on individual plans this new moon. Be assertive but don’t be a dick. Start something new for you. It will benefit others in someway but that should not be your main reason for doing so in this new moon. The house and personal planets the new moon touches in your Natal chart will give you a very good idea of the details.
Til next time y’all.
