Sunday, April 15th, 2018 at 7:57p MDT the Moon + Sun sit together in the sky as the New Moon at 26 degrees of Aries 02' holding hands with ERIS (!) to remind us this Moon cycle of what it is that we've been neglecting in our respective lives.
At the same time, this New Moon lineup sit at an angle to Jupiter at 21 degrees of Scorpio 06' Rx (retrograde) sensitizing and bringing the expansive energy deep Within to help us all Let GO of Old Patterns of Conditioning re power and control issues, emotional manipulation, Ego-self fears and trust issues! The Divine Plan is to help us move out of the Shadows into our Passionate natures - when was the last time you felt passionate about something? Really truly - when?
The New Moon lineup in the cardinal fire of Aries brings forth the archetypes of:
Via instinctual action, assertion, standing up for ME, Myself & I, eh?
This is the "I" of the I AM keywords in Astrology: Aries + planetary ruler, Mars + 1st House themes. Your physical body, moving it athletically or otherwise, and how you embrace that Inner Warrior part of yourself Soulfully (Sun) and through your Emotional Body (Moon).
Luckily our Mercury planet Stationed Direct earlier today (yay!) and we are gearing up to move forward easier within our Mental Body from today onward. Whew! Note that Mercury's placement in Aries right now has been activating everyone's natal ERIS (!) since March 9th!
Especially for those of us born between May 1939 and May 1988. Mentally reminding each of us of that which we've been NEGLECTING in our respective lives...according to the themes already mentioned herein. Have there been opportunities to assert yourself since March that you've ignored, shied away from, run away from? Speaking out before thinking about its impact to those around you? Mercury's communication actions are not only directed outwardly with others - how has your Inner Talk been acting of late? Impatient? Aggressive vs. assertive? Less than loving?
Pluto is also in play with this New Moon lineup - he's still travelling through Capricorn, another cardinal sign (earth) creating stress and tension for change regarding power, control, greed, less than integral business practices - ensuring we build a solid foundation of HOW we do business out in the world now. The change is a transformation of how assertive we all are when it comes to above-board business practices, responsibilities, goal-setting - bringing forth reputations of either reliable, not so reliable to downright illegal.
Think of Pluto as the Phoenix: dying to some aspect Within only to be Reborn in the next moment. Surrender the Old, embrace the ReNEWed! A continuous do-over of life, death and rebirth...
Dive deeply into those fears that show themselves this Moon cycle to uncover your True Passionate natures. Trust your intuition and instincts; take action accordingly. BE alert, patient, and move your physical body!
The Sun was shining here today in Southern Alberta! Yay! The mountains were awesome with their crevices outlining and shining brightly from all the white snow they've received this winter. Snow is melting AND snow is on the way yet again overnight into Monday (sigh...) and Tuesday...glad this weekend we had two days of Spring that was heartwarming and welcome.
Physically, Aries rules the following in the body:
Acne (eruptions of fire)
Head, face, scalp and brain
Headaches and dizziness
Be alert to how the Aries energy is landing within any of these physical areas of your body - cardinal fire MUST be utilized physically somehow - otherwise this energy, if trapped within the physical body can lead to ailments in any or all areas mentioned above. Go for a good long walk, exercise, run and jump, physically MOVE this fire OUT while also navigating your Inner Warrior Inner Explorer Inner Pioneer WITHIN...lots of action this Moon cycle!
