"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Aries New Moon & Feeling Like A Rocketman... Plus Mercury Rx and Neptune Into Pisces...

   Today brings yet another indication of the count down to lift-off, signaling it's time to go, as Luna moves to join the Sun at fourteen degrees of Aries for the first New Moon of the astrological year. Everybody's chomping at the bit to get going...to move... to just do something different... and now... you can! However, there are some things for you to consider before you take off... please read the following and be aware of all the implications while deciding your course of action in the month ahead.

  The Arian energy is STRONG for bringing courage, restlessness and impatience at any Aries New Moon, but particularly so this Spring. There are some rocket boosters to take into account before blasting off. The Sun and Moon get an assist from Mars' entry into Aries yesterday, the sign he rules and that would be booster number one. Booster number two is the fact that both Jupiter and Uranus are already in this fiery territory and will be conjoined throughout the month ahead by Sun, Moon and Mars at different points.

  Here are some things for you to consider: Mars is aggressive, daring and energetic and if you need this to move you forward, great! Jupiter is optimistic, expansive and desires a broader view of the whole world for the purpose of growth. Uranus is extreme and unexpected energy that overturns old stuck patterns and replaces them with something new. Combine any of these vibrational forces and you can see there is a likelihood for sweeping change that happens quickly and without warning. We have seen a partial combination of these energies out in the world since Uranus joined Jupiter in Aries earlier in March with many revolts and protests in oppressed places where the people don't feel heard or honored by their leaders. (Please re-read the previous Blog entry.)

  Where do you want, or need, to make a BIG change in your life.. is it self-identity,  relationship, job, or where you live? Let's play... Mars + Jupiter + Uranus in Fire (Aries) = Aggressive, extensive, extreme change lit by the forceful spark of Aries to bring a new start that is nothing like the status quo. Another example might be: Courage + Opportunity + Innovation = a New Beginning! Yet another... Self-will + Extravagance + Freedom = It's All About Me... Now, if you don't like any one combination, remember, you have free will on how to use the above energies!! Mix them up and see what works for you. The whole idea is to use what you need to make necessary changes without burning your bridges or burning yourself out.

  Here is where I say "Danger Will Robinson..." or "watch where you're stepping!" There is so much forward energy right now and with Aries ruling the head, one could experience headaches, bumping their head on door frames, or up against a brick wall... or just really ticking others off with all the self-centered energy being flung about. The other thing to watch out for, is lighting too many fires and not having the energy to maintain them all or agreeing to things you can't possibly complete.

  Help is available in the form of Mercury Retrograde!! Yes, I said that... Mercury slowed down and turned around allows us the time-out to reconsider all our options, read the fine print and research the best course of action. This period started March 31st and runs through April 23rd, when Mercury moves into direct motion, staying in Aries until May 15th, which means you'll still have time to make new agreements, sign contracts and buy new phones, cars, computers, etc. during the first two weeks in May. For now, only agree to what you absolutely have to and after you've considered all your options, which are numerous in the weeks ahead!

  Beautiful blue Neptune moves into it's home territory of Pisces tomorrow for a four-month preview of coming attractions, before settling in to the main event next February for 14 years. The outer planets turn retrograde every year for a few months and Neptune does this on June 3rd, allowing it to re-enter Aquarius on August 4th, where it will stay even as it goes direct on November 9th, for the rest of 2011, for a review of what we uncovered through technological advances during Neptune's passage in the detached, fixed sign of Aquarius.  Tomorrow's preview shows Neptune in Pisces dissolving boundaries between people, nations and religions and connecting us to subtler realms of spirit, imagination, beauty and compassion. Neptune also rules the oceans, film, fog, dreams, spiritual guidance, deception, escapist tendencies and artistic creativity. Being out of touch with spiritual guidance can lead to denial and deceit, as in " you can fool some of the people some of the time..." " you're only kidding yourself..." "one lie begets another..." or "you can't fool Mother Nature..."! Which one (s) do you need to avoid?

  Under the skin, we are all One. We all need air to breathe, food to eat and water to drink. Neptune's travels in Pisces will break down barriers to knowing this, once and for all. We will learn what true compassion and no limits really means... no limits to caring, compassion, sending out healing thoughts and loving energy to all beings on this watery planet we call home. Keep sending prayers and healing thoughts to the waters in Japan and all over the world, that they may be purified and continue to supply us with nourishment for our bodies that comes through the food and water we need. Always bless the water around you, the food you grow and what you eat and drink and maintain gratitude for having clean air, pure water and healthy food. These are the three things we need more than money in the bank, now and in the coming years. Times are getting tougher, not better, as some would have us believe. Make it a habit to ask for help from the Divine in all things. Peace~

Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground.

  1. Beautiful post, Suzanne. Very interesting as well. I've been looking at today's planets for a couple of weeks wondering what would transpire.

    I have some creative ideas boiling and will put them on paper in the next 3 weeks. Hopefully, if they're good enough, I'll submit them for the next step in the process. . .
    Big hugs!
