Big Badda Boom- Aries New Moon 4/2016

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. 251-the-fifth-element-movie-review-bruce-willis-corbin-dallas-milla-jovovich-leeloo-1997Why? 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.

PSA: No, You Are Not An Aries/Taurus/Gemini/etc.

Astrological zodiac signs ARE NOT people.

 

There are no Gemini’s. There are some people with their sun in Gemini however. There are no Pisces’s. There are people who have some (never all) planets and/or points that are colored by Piscean energy.


Let astrology open you up to the multifaceted you. Not a diminished caricature or incomplete picture. Astrology has focused on more than just the zodiac signs for centuries across most civilizations. Don’t sell it or yourself short by reducing who you are to just your sun sign.

The Incredible Hulk Syndrome- Aries New Moon April 2015

If you feel a bit like you’ve been walking an emotional high wire, you’re not alone. The new moon will happen at 2:57 pm Eastern at 28 degrees of Aries.

We might feel ourselves holding our breathe to keep ourselves in check emotionally. Asserting ourselves when we feel ourselves being emotionally threatened may occur. We might even be in a situation where we find ourselves scrambling for a new way to be our old self. It’s cool though. Or rather, stay cool.

Keeping a cool head is a definite good idea. Remembering that the core of who we are won’t change is a good piece of advice to hold onto in these choppy New moon in Aries waters. Also remember that Aries doesn’t handle fear well. Aries often inspires us to run forward when fear overtakes because it would rather take action than be seen as a coward. I’m not suggesting you run but a moderately placed walk away from your fears and the old might be a good idea.

Walk around. Smell the roses, the perfume, the diesel fuel, whatever floats your boat. Soon you’ll see that you’ve covered miles of new terrain by just focusing on the small things that make you happy. Seems like a great way to start the transition into Taurus Sun Season.

You can always schedule a consultation to get a personal understanding of how this new moon will affect you. Til then, be cool.

April 2015 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse- When should us become me?

Hey good peoples! I hope this post finds you well, especially seeing as how it is a bit late. I think it is time for me to reevaluate my relationship with my internet provider lol.

Even with this post going up after the Libra full moon and eclipse, it still has useful information that you can use. Planetary energies and configurations don’t just magically poof away the second they move out of tight configurations. The energies build and recede. This is especially true of of the moon because the cycle of the moon waxes and wanes. New and full moons are high points in the lunar cycle. Full moons are high points that signal a full to bursting energy that has built up since the new moon.Sweet Moon Phases

Going forward from a full moon, we should be looking to clear away things and pieces of us that do not fit in with or assist us in our journey. There is still time to do so with this Libra full moon that asks us to look at relationships in our lives that we go forwardforward and acquiesce in because of our emotions but are at odds with our individuality and journey to embody our highest self.

Here’s the video. Enjoy.

Get Ready! New Moon, Eclipse, and the start of Aries season 3/20/2015

The first day of spring is starting to look like it is coming in with a bang. March 20th is a day that includes the Spring equinox, a new moon, AND a solar eclipse. Whew!

First up is the new moon and solar eclipse. The new moon (which is also a super moon) occurs in the 29th degree of Pisces at 5:36 am Eastern. New moons represent new journeys and new beginnings. They are fraught with promise and hope. Occurring in the last degree of Pisces, this new moon gets an extra push for us to dream of what we want before we head out to get it. 29 degrees is always a heady place for any planet and that is certainly true of a new moon and eclipse. Pisces wants us to dream, to not see things as they are but as they could be. The Pisces new moon wants us to get emotionally connected, with ourselves and the world. As a mutable water sign, the fishes give the moon an almost psychic level of intuition. Mutable signs tidy things up before a big change, they clear out the old to make way for the new. Combine that with the water element and we get a fresh emotional start for our new moon. Negatively expressed, this could lead folks to run headlong into their dream world with little consideration for reality. The inability to change their surroundings to suit them can start a journey of escapism that may not end well. Keep that in mind as you set your intentions, especially for this new moon.

Why? Because the new moon is occurring during a full solar eclipse. The meeting of sun and moon make for a heady combination. Symbolically, our conscious light will be covered by our unconscious reflections of that light. This will start at 5:09am Eastern and end at 6:22am for full viewing. Partial viewing times are from 3:41am Eastern until 7:50am. cleanThese are powerful moments because we have two options essentially- to allow our unconscious and emotions to come forth to be examined by the light so that we can use them as guideposts or to fear the unknown and stay disconnected. I think everyone can agree that option two is not really an option.

These two heavenly bodies joining during a new moon and solar eclipse can be seen as a merging of the feminine and masculine archetypes that birth every journey. The conscious and subconscious merging to make a complete person or the active and reactive natures that embody every living thing. Understand that this energy is freely at our disposal in a sign that always whispers to us that everything was once just a thought, a dream, an idea. Allow your creative juices to flow in a way that can give birth to a new chapter for yourself. Connect to others and allow them to inspire you to change your world.

walkAlmost a complete 12 hours later, the sun will enter Aries and a new journey begins. The cycle of the zodiac starts fresh, so to speak, and it seems very appropriate given the astrological activities of the moment. When the sun moves into the sign of the ram, our consciousness turns to not just new journeys but to ourselves. Like a hero that sets off towards the sun, the sun in Aries moves with vigor and a focus on how to make its mark in the world. The sun does not ask us do this for recognition however when it moves into Aries. It asks us to do so because new journeys must be continually taken in order to shape and define us. The need to pander to others is lessened because Aries gives the sun a tough edge that focuses on individuality and making your own way. A bit brashly and impulsively, because Aries is a cardinal fire sign, but with an ability to bounce back.

The Uranus/Pluto Square is still in effect during this time so try to temper your urge to destroy and rebuild with some foresight and planning. The Saturn/Neptune square could help in dreaming big if we allow Saturn in Sagittarius to keep a realistic yet optimistic eye on the big picture truth.

All of these events will have an effect on a big scale but where it matters is where they will be happening in your personal birth chart. A new moon/solar eclipse in the second house could mean new understandings of self worth and new opportunities for growth of personal resources. However the same event in the 6th house could denote a new diet or health regimen as well as a reorganizing of home and work by fine tuning details.

If you are unsure of where the new moon will be taking place in you chart and would like more information and insight, send me a line to schedule a consultation. As always, stay easy folks.

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 10/2014

There is a blood moon ahead *cue spooky music*

A full moon and lunar eclipse will take place at 6:49am Eastern Time. The sun will be at 15° Libra and the moon will be at its fullest opposite it. Full moons signal a push for completion and fulfillment of goals that we started at the beginning of the lunar cycle. Toss in a lunar eclipse and the need to reach completion and release is heightened.

The emotional need to assert our individual self is ripe. Aries houses both the moon and Uranus so moments can happen that beg us to burst forth in emotionally erratic and eccentric ways. Opposite the sun in Libra, we could walk a tightrope between me and we that seems a bit shakier than usual.

The moon’s nodes are involved in this full moon and eclipse. The Nodes are mathematical points where the orbit of the moon intersect the ecliptic. In simple terms, it is where the moon crosses the sun’s path. This moon will sit tightly with the south node, the instinctual things that come natural. The sun sits tightly with the north node, the new things we yearn to cultivate. Use this info and your knowledge of the Aries/Libra axis as you will. (I would suggest that while you strive to “be yourself”, you push to do so in relationships that fulfill you and stretch you to define more than just your differences)

All in all, this full moon and eclipse could bring a lot of relationship issues to the forefront. Even the relationship we have with ourselves. Howl if you need to but maybe you should cry out with (and to) a good friend.

Venus in Aries- May 2014

Venus moved into Aries on May 3rd of 2014 and I don’t think that most folks felt it. They didn’t consciously understand the shifting of “us” centered values to “I” centered values due to Mars currently moving in a retrograde motion through Libra. That still doesn’t mean that it didn’t shift. Thoughts of what makes us feel loved are simmering below the surface; slowly bubbling up to get our undivided attention. Aries does not care for playing second fiddle so when Venus moves through it we all focus on ourselves a bit more. There is nothing wrong with this. We need to check in on ourselves occasionally to make sure that we are being filled, appreciated, and valued in all of our relationships. Venus in Aries makes sure that we do so and don’t necessarily apologize for it. 

 

We are focused on attracting things that makes us feel unique with this placement. Relationships, situations, and people that value our individuality and ability to strike out into newness are what our hearts yearn for. Inject some spontaneity into your current relationship or try a new place to find a date. Love is passionate under this placement but also self centered. When Venus meets up with Uranus in Aries expect some insights into your current relationships that could expand on where you need to readjust the “I/US” balance and allow you to figure out some missing hidden piece of yourself that has been neglected in your relationships.We value boldness, brashness, and a can do attitude right now. Enjoy it.
