Has anything changed in your life as of the beginning of spring? It may well do so in the next few weeks. The New Moon in Aries is at 20 degrees 41’ occurring in the morning on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 5:35 am EDT. This is the first New Moon after the Spring Equinox. This really brings the spring freshness to us with a burst of energy and maybe a few sparks flying. Let’s hope that the sparks are pleasurable. Aries is always about new happenings, beginnings and taking big leaps. The Sun in Aries says it is the explorer who goes boldly forward in an independent fashion. And the Moon in Aries gets it before many others and wants to move on yet hangs back just for a bit before the impulsive nature comes out and the need to leap is present. Moon in Aries brings out intense emotion at times. The New Moon in Aries is enthusiastic about most things so since it is in the 3rd decan of Aries, you may find some added joyfulness to your life at this time wherever the New Moon is in your chart. This comes from the planet Jupiter which rules that part of the Aries sign.
In the past month have you dug deep to find what desires are motivating you to take the leap? Or have you felt, like I did, a sigh of relief for once that the spring has finally come? It was a challenging 6 months for me and I am so glad to see the flowers begin to bloom. (Well, not quite yet-but soon) The weather manipulators want to get those trees blooming early with the temperatures higher than the norm. Then next week the weather will be cold. It is so outrageous what is happening in the air. Hope you are taking lots of D3 and other vitamins and get off those pharmaceuticals which are killing you softly. I have been so dragged down with all the gunk in the air this winter that seeing the sun stay out for a few days is a blessing. Did you notice how different it feels? It is very intense for this time of year and can go either way.
Mars and Venus are both near the New Moon and what could show up is a passionate affair /partnership or the drums of war. I think an intense involvement with a special someone sounds much better than any conflict. The words to you –act wisely. Avoid conflicts since they can blossom into too much dramatic turns. Who of you out there may have to choose between 2 partners? That’s another possibility. And those who are sexually drawn to someone may have a deeply intense moment. Others may just feel so romantic that the creativeness will envelop you and you will write new songs or dabble in lost talents. This all can show up with a bolt out of the blue. Those most affected are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. On the other hand, who of you will be so shocked over a revelation that it boosts you right out of a fantasy and into a new reality? If there are delays, don’t let it dash your hopes. Many background things have to come together in order for anything to manifest at this time. Keep the faith. It is working for you.
This New Moon in Aries will have you energized if you allow it. This Moon is about playfulness and the optimism which I mentioned earlier. Remember back in the 90s when the big thing was looking at the child within. Well that child really is stirred up at this time and wants to play and dance and do everything fun. Will you bring that child out and enjoy this opening? It is also a time for sharing and collaborating on a project or a dream or whatever you choose. You dug deep into the dream in the past month and now it is time to take the dream up a level and purify it. New Moon in Aries brings about a purification of your energetic self. It gets rid of the cobwebs in your head (Aries) and maybe you might just see things more clearly.
On the 12th Pluto stations (in Capricorn) before turning retrograde for five months, ideal for getting the groundwork in place. Pluto retrograde is intense. It is widely square the New Moon so this does continue the reworking idea. This is a time of cleaning your internal house. Any old thought forms, communication patterns, and emotional rigidness need to be let go. Get rid of all those things that are outworn already. Give them up. That is what needs to be done again for those of you who continue to hang onto old junk that no longer serves the new energetic in you. I know that some of you may still be hanging on without realizing how much lighter you can become in your thinking, communicating and emotions. What are you waiting for? Once you realize what you has been dragging you down, wow, you can let it go with ease. What do you say? Pluto goes direct on September 20, 2013. This time give it a chance and release those patterns.
I was speaking to someone the other day and the individual asked me why I need to continue to look at astrology in order to live my life. And I said I don’t live by astrology. I go beyond it. Whatever is in your natal chart is there to show you what you brought into this life. Does it tell futures? NO. Does it tell you to do anything? NO. It is there as a blueprint so you can see the reality of who you are and then take it a step beyond. Many of those who work with the planets see it differently. That is ok. I look to see how you actually can walk through the obstacles and take advantage of the good aspects. In my chart for this New Moon in Arties it is conjunct Mars and Venus and squares my Moon. It is in my 11th house. It indicates that I may find some groups beneficial to me or I would hang out with quirky individuals. There could also be an unexpected opening on a new unusual path (don’t I do enough unusual things?) or originality will come to the fore. Enough said.
Thank you for all your support. Have a creative and enthusiastic New Moon time and write those intentions clearly. Many Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
