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.

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.

Are You Sure?- Second New Moon in Aquarius

New moon coming in less than 2 hours. It will start in Aquarius and transition into Pisces. Of course that means that Pisces sun season will be starting as well. Have you felt the excitement building?

This is a unique chance to set some Aquarian type goals and merge them with Piscean type ones as well. Set goals to use resources that you have to strengthen your connection with groups and work on compassionate interactions with all. Saturn forms an angle with the sun and moon so be prepared to do some hard work for long term results. Saturn in Sagittarius will help in the tough work of looking for the thread of truth in the big picture while we move from initial emotional detachment to a deeper sense of connectedness.

Being connected is great and necessary but to me this feels like a reminder to be you and to give others the space to be their own unique selves. The sun in Aquarius helps us to break down personal and societal barriers that infringe on our images (1)right to march to the beat of our own drums. With the moon meeting it there again in the 29°, we get another chance to cement that right for ourselves and others.

As the sun and moon both move into Pisces, we are given an extra boost to wash away the ought to’s and should be’s of outside expectations. We are given a chance to allow illusions of barriers to melt away.

Celebrate what works for you. Celebrate what works for others. Remember that thousands of different types of cellsimages (2) still make up one body and that is the beauty of being human.

The house that will hold this new moon can give you insight into where you should look long and deep for your own uniqueness AND connectedness to the bigger whole. If you are not sure, drop me a line to schedule a consultation so I can help.

Stay breezy folks

12/21/2014- Winter Solstice and Capricorn’s focus

The Winter Solstice is happening today and a lot is going down. The Sun moves into Capricorn, the last new moon of the year occurs and Uranus goes station direct today.

At 6:17pm ET, the sun moves into the sign of Capricorn. We, in the northern hemisphere will experience the longest span of night for the year. Capricornwpid-images.png themes include perseverance and long term planning. How else could you survive the longest night and the harsh of winter that is coming if you don’t plan ahead? Personally, we should all be looking to plant seeds for long term gain right now. Sagittarius teaches us to celebrate in the here and now but Capricorn assures us that it will continually shift and we should be prepared for it.

A cardinal sign, Capricorn is not afraid to move forward but does it with slow yet even sure footedness that turns an acorn into a towering tree in the years to come. Being rooted in earth, Capricorn colors our thoughts with what we need in the material plane right now to sustain ourselves through harsh times. Are you willing or even prepared to tough it out in order to see your wants manifested in 3D?

All of these questions should be asked before we set our intentions for the new moon happening around 8pm ET today. The things we intend to complete this moon cycle should be ones that add bricks to the foundation of our long term goals. Rememberwpid-images-35.jpg.jpeg, Capricorn does produce results but they are often seen only in their full glory down the road a bit. Look to your birth chart to see which house or section of life the new moon occurs in to get an idea of where you should be taking steps to move along your long term goals this moon cycle.


Uranus also goes station direct in Aries today after months of retrograde movement. Everywhere we have seen sparks of revolution setting fire on personal and national levels. The retrograde motion of Uranus didn’t stifle the inspiration but made it much more personal and clouded by personal agendas. As it prepares to move forward, expect new leaders to continue to step forward for fights in personal and human rights. Also lone wolves with manifestos and explosive personalities will continue to rise. A redefining of self and what one person can do will continue to occur. Use this time to continue to be inspired on your personal journey and to inspire others. Not with grand acts but with a seeking and confident sense of self that calls others to do the same. Uranus moves slowly and effects are generational so the full span of what this placement will do will not be fully realized until decades later. Look to your birth chart to see where inspiration of clarification of self may be occurring in your life.

Libra New Moon 2014

There is a stillness with this new moon. Even though Libra is a cardinal sign, there are no major aspects to this configuration. This brings an extra peaceful yet focused energy into play. It almost seems to suggest a meditation like quality to the start of this lunar month. I say plan accordingly. Quiet talks and dulcet pursuits should be on our list for the next day or two. Libra already has a strong appreciation for beauty and tranquility so this should not be too hard.

Perfect moon to spend with a good friend

Perfect moon to spend with a good friend

This isn’t necessarily the time to turn up

Clear and diplomatic negotiations and interactions are good right now. The ability to not take opposition personally, yet still reside confidently in who we are should be the goal. Connect with others. Be social. Support the arts. But keep your raging party animal at bay. Make plans to seek balance and beauty. Appreciate the fine details (Venus rules Libra and Venus is currently in Virgo). Weigh your options this lunar month and take it easy.

New Moon in Aries- March 2014

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.

Aries Moon-by D.Eskridge

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.
