Hello dear ones. Welcome to Cosmic Leaping. It has been a very unusual time these past couple of weeks. The Full Moon energy is winding down and the New Moon in Aries will be arriving. My life has been filled with last minute tax clients and my head is spinning for the moment. Oh, yes, all this will pass yet it meanders on for another 10 days of digging into the new laws and terms of the tax code. Where has this energy been taking you? Have you seen the opportunity for the leap or are you still stuck in the past mode? It is a time to truly relook at the whole dynamic and be ready to take charge of your life if you have not. The Full Moon of a couple weeks ago said watch for burnout. How many are still feeling that? Why not a restful weekend to reenergize yourself? Find some fun. Watch March Madness…on second thought, that may get you too worked up again. Weigh the options.
What is with the chaos? So much fear surrounds everyone. Maybe Pluto is taking over the realm instead of humans. Pluto talk will be back in a bit. In the meantime I have never seen so much negative energy ever. Those who are behind the scenes just do not let up. 5G wireless hotspots are now ready to be installed despite health risks. Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley in California are the places this is going to happen. 5G is unsafe and untested. And those who have done studies have said forget it because the energy may create lots of health issues. And guess what the FCC will not let those in the area object to the installations. You are kidding me. Sign the national petition to stop this lunacy. Also, did you know Facebook assigns every user a reputation score? This predicts your trustworthiness. What? Oh, yes, everyone knows everything you do. It is ironic that I was on the phone with a friend and spoke about going to the Hawaiian Islands and later in the day I noticed in my feed a new sponsored source about those islands. I have to figure out which part of my electronics is picking this up. I love saying things and see what happens afterward. UK has obviously left the European Union as of March 29. Time will tell. One more interesting tidbit which is nuts- Bill Gates is funding a Harvard group that is attempting to block the sun’s rays to help with climate change. Unbelievable!
Here comes the warrior and explorer of the world – Aries. The New Moon in Aries arrives on Friday, April 5, 2019 at 4:50 am EDT; 1:50 am PDT; and 8:50 am GMT at 15 degrees 17’. The Sun in Aries is at the exact same degree. Aries looks to take action. It is a fiery element to say the least. This New Moon is the best time to lay the groundwork for a new venture; a truly new beginning to a project that you have desired to do for a long time. It is the perfect New Moon to reach within and find the initiative and spirit to start fresh and it will pay off down the road. That patience that I mentioned around the Full Moon is still needed since it will help your focus and determination. I know Aries just wants to leap yet it is paying attention this time around. Remember that thought when you get impulsive and start going around in circles. This is a time to being motivated and bringing out the new energy of spring and Aries. Check for any weaknesses that you may have and take on the strength of the New Moon fire and see where it can take you. You may have to face some challenges before the good things come into the picture which is all about Alpheratz, a Fixed Star. The New Moon is in good aspect to it. Riches, honor, Independence, freedom, love and a sharp mind come with this part of the picture.
What is a New Moon? It is a burst of new energy which lasts until the next new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This new moon is a time to be free and not let anyone tie you down in the sense that you are totally commanded by someone else. It sounds like something I have been in the last couple of weeks on the road traveling here and there and everywhere in my other profession/tax consulting. Maybe the New Moon missed the message. Just kidding!
The challenge comes with the initiator Aries Moon when it is square (conflict) to Saturn in Capricorn. Uh oh! Which one is going to budge or not? Life may take a few twists and turns and may also take longer to complete something. It is not a time to give up because it does come about when the time is right. This applies to projects and relationships so if you are lagging behind in your schedule know that it will happen in time. It is about being ready to act when the moment arrives. Keep that in the front of your mind. Last year at this time the New Moon in Aries also had Uranus (the shock planet) nearby. The energy was more electric. It sure was…I took a spill. Ouch. Of course, that was because I was not paying attention. If a barrier shows up due to some disagreement or otherwise it is all right. Try to get along with your neighbors or friends especially if you may not have the same attitudes or likes as them. Even with differences the energy may be there to help in another way. If you want the positive then you have to work hard and stay out of the pessimistic and negative attitude. No poor me junk being spouted out. Got it? It will require that you “face the truth” and perhaps re-balance the power between two people or things.
Another aspect is Saturn in Capricorn which is conjunct (within 2 degrees) the South Node of the Moon which is in Capricorn also. What traditions from the past are you so steeped in that they are keeping you from progressing down the road? And Pluto too is right with the South Node too and may bring into play some hidden situation that is saying it does not have to be a power play more like a rebalancing. There can be some turning point at this time or in the next couple of weeks. Capricorn is a realist and has much focus. You may wish to choose patience over the fiery breakaway. Do not let old wounds affect you anymore. Can you do that? Let them flow right down the river of life and stop holding onto them.
If you are thinking of starting something new in the culinary arena or taking a trip to get some needed downtime then the New Moon in Aries trine the dwarf planet Ceres (Earth Mother archetype) in Sagittarius will give you the good energy to do so. This aspect can bring sensuality to the foreground. Some may just go out and lavish much attention on others.
Are you feeling good now that the Trickster Mercury is now moving forward slowly? It is still confusing, foggy and just downright disturbing in some ways until next week. So keep your head in the game and pay attention. The reason is that at the New Moon time Mercury is just 1 degree past (still conjunct) Neptune in Pisces. Dream on in your pajamas…otherwise not.
The New Moon in Aries will be more intense for those of you who have Sun in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at degrees of 12-18. If you have any personal planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) at those degrees then you also may be affected. Approximate birthdays are: April 1-7; July 5-11; October 6-12; and January 3-9.
FYI-I am always open to questions or even if you choose to know more about your own life through the aspects let me know in comments. I do readings and counseling and look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for reading and sharing this post. I am most grateful for those who follow this blog. Take a breath as the new moon arrives and see what wondrous things can begin anew. And remember let the past go so forward motion can take place. Many blessings and joy to you, until again, love, Jan
