Emerging into Spring at the New Moon in Aries

Aries New Moon Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and the Aries New Moon occursin springtime when (in the northern hemisphere) new life is bursting out of every corner. The Aries New Moon gives us an opportunity to emerge from winter’s hibernation with new goals, new desires, a fresh new start. Under the Aries New Moon we can put all of the challenges of the past behind us and begin anew with all the innocence of a child but the power of an adult.

A strong square aspect between Mars (aggression) and Jupiter (expansion) can enhance confidence but it can also raise tempers and create conflicts.  Mars is in Taurus now where it tends to resist behavior that is too radical, but if we try to stifle our resistance it may blow up like a bull (Taurus) in a china shop.  Channeling this energy into a project that requires faith and confidence is a helpful way to manage this Mars/Jupiter combination.

Since Aries is ruled by Mars, a forceful Mars aspect at the time of an Aries New Moon suggests that a great deal of energy is likely to be generated by this New Moon.

This New Moon also contains a force of creative energy, with both Mercury and Venus aspecting Neptune and opening up windows to the divine (Neptune) which facilitate the flow of imagination and idealism. These aspects will continue to affect us for several days after the New Moon so the doorways to new experiences will remain open for some time!

Blood Moon, Full Moon, Eclipse! April 4, 2015

blood moon eclipse 2015This eclipse is being called the “shortest lunar eclipse in a century,” but it is quite powerful astrologically since it triggers both Uranus (radical behavior) and Pluto (destruction and regeneration) in a very tight aspect from both the Sun and Moon.  The Sun aligns with Uranus, fostering rebellion and a desire to separate from anything which holds us back, and Uranus opposes the Moon which creates a restless need for something to change.

(This eclipse falls on Passover and is called a Blood Moon which as a lunar tetrad is connected to Biblical prophecies about the fate of Israel.  You can read more about that here in an earlier article. For the astronomers view see .)

Eclipses occur when the lunar nodes align with the Sun and Moon, and because the lunar nodes are connected to the journey of our destiny from past to future there is a fated quality to eclipses in which something which has been hidden is revealed.

This is a Full Moon in Libra, and the Libra Moon opposes the Aries Sun setting off a polarity between Self (Aries) and Other (Libra).  The Libra Moon craves connection and the Aries Sun desires self-actualization so in the Full Moon we must strike a balance between these two opposites.

Pluto makes this balance difficult since it forms a T-square as it squares (90 degrees) both the Sun and the Moon, challenging both sides to seek the extremes of their expression.  Our conscious Self (Sun) wants to be MORE Arian – more assertive, more individualistic.  Our lunar emotional instincts attempt to flee from conflict and desire nothing but peace and harmony.  This is an eclipse, so in the effort […]

New Moon at the Spring Equinox! Time for a fresh start

New Moon Aries Equinox

The Aries New Moon on March 20th at 6:45 pm Eastern time occurs at the Aries Point – the zero degree of Aries that marks the beginning of the entire zodiac.  For the northern hemisphere, this marks the first day of spring (you Aussies and Kiwis, and anyone living in Antarctica, may want to read my earlier article about astrology in the southern hemisphere here).

The Aries Point gets a special mention in astrological literature.  Kim Falconer , “the AP represents a movement (cardinal) from an inner quality to an outer manifestation. It orients us towards the world at large—society, public events and all relationships propelled from the individual to the collective.”

The sign of Aries is itself the beginning of manifestation in the world – the point of initiation and assertive dynamic experiences that push us into the world itself.  Any New Moon marks a new beginning – the beginning of a new lunar cycle that wipes the slate clean and provides an opportunity to create something new in our lives.  Any Aries New Moon adds another layer of excitement and Marsy energy to stoke the fires and energize that creation.

A New Moon at the Aries Point is an explosion of fresh new potent creative enthusiasm that can provide the motivation we need to begin something anew.  The challenging square (90 degree aspect) between Uranus and Pluto is still very tight, the two planets are just 9 minutes apart, so the adjustment is not easy.  Uranus breaks apart the old way and leaves us to put together the pieces.  Pluto assists with the destruction and reminds us who we really are at our core so that when […]

This Virgo Full Moon is a karmic trigger

Virgo Full MoonThe Full Moon on March 5 contains plenty of planetary punch!

The Sun is in Pisces now, opposite the Virgo Moon.  The Pisces/Virgo polarity involves a rebalancing of our need to attend to the details of our ordinary life (Virgo) with the longing of the soul to transcend details and experience a divine flow (Pisces).   The Moon itself reflects the changing urges of the soul, and in Virgo there is strong pressure to pay attention to the details that give our lives order.

At the Full Moon both the Sun and Moon interact with Chiron (opening up old wounds and precipitating their release), Saturn (creating a sense of isolation in our personal development), Uranus (opening a window for us to see new possibilities) and Pluto (intensifying the entire experience and offering great rewards if we confront our demons head-on).

Mars aligns with the Lunar South Node at the Full Moon, potentially triggering something to be released from the past.  Try to remember to pay close attention to events that occur on this day, as they may be rooted in an old karmic experience that you brought in with you that can be released now.

Relationships could be problematic under a conjunction of Venus (relating) to Uranus (rebellion), activating the Uranus/Pluto square as it prepares to culminate for the very last time.  This is a time to go your own way and speak with your own voice – anything less will result in trouble.  Still – with the Virgo Moon calling for temperance, balance and moderation will still be necessary.

Full Moons typically carry a strong energetic power, but this one is particularly strong.  It’s a time to release the past (Mars/South Node), take stock of the details of the present (Virgo), communicate our […]

Brilliant Aquarius New Moon February 18th

Aquarius new moonIf you know the artist who created this work please let me know!!  The Aquarius New Moon on the 18th takes place at the 29th degree of Aquarius just a few minutes before the Sun enters Pisces.

Aquarius is symbolized by the “water bearer,” but Aquarius has nothing to do with the watery realm of emotion.  Rather, it symbolizes the cleansing effect of water which purify and cleanse every aspect of human existence so that it can be illuminated and refreshed.

This is the second of two New Moons in Aquarius: the first one was at the first degree of Aquarius and this one is at the last degree. The New Moon is typically representative of a brand new beginning, but in this case we have a brand new beginning at the end of a sign which is also a completion of sorts. Aquarius lifts us above the day to day mundane reality of life on earth and gives us the perspective that comes from detachment and reason, free from emotion.

This lunation makes an inconjunct aspect to Mars in Pisces – a somewhat awkward and challenging aspect that provides tension with no possibility of resolution. Aquarius asks that we transcend the personal in order to serve humanity, but the inconjunct aspect to Mars makes that more difficult and could create inner tension for a few days.  Mars represents the aggressive force and is not happy in Pisces anyway, so the next few days could be somewhat difficult as we attempt to assert our will (Mars) but emotions (New Moon and the Pisces influence) get in the way.

The Sun enters Pisces immediately after the New Moon, and there is an energetic shift that will melt resistance and encourage flow and […]
