"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 Sun & Libra Moon Illuminated

   At the vernal Equinox a week ago, the Sun moved into it's place of exaltation in Aries to jump-start our journeys for the year and brought new vitality for fresh beginnings. As the first sign of the zodiac, this Cardinal Fire sign lights a spark, whether starting new growth in Spring in the Northern Hemisphere or lighting the hearth fires as Autumn begins in the Southern Hemisphere.

   Aries energy is invigorating, entrepreneurial and exploratory, not waiting for anyone but the self to set off on new adventures. It is the rush of youth, at times foolhardy and impulsive, jumping into something and asking questions later. If you've been needing a boost of energy, here it is! The caution of course is not to be too demanding or aggressive in your pursuit of new horizons. And that's where The Libra Moon comes in to try and keep things on an even keel.

   Libra is the Cardinal Air sign, complimentary to its' Aries polarity; air feeds fire and self seeks other. These two balance each other as they dance at the Full Moon. Seeds planted at the New Moon two weeks ago have grown beyond their sprouted stage and buds have opened. Did you water and protect the new growth of ideas or projects?

   Cooperation is necessary for beauty and harmony and Libra is well equipped to bring refinement to the ofttimes naivety ushered in with Mars' influence over Aries. Use the illuminating light of this Full Moon to see where you're at and where you either need to forge ahead or pull in the reins a bit while others get their affairs in order too meet you somewhere in the middle. In the meantime, Libra Moon is ideal for social gatherings, beautification projects and focusing attention on significant others.

   There are some planetary energies making it trickier to just get moving in the direction we want to go in. While Mercury is in direct motion, it is still in its' shadow phase requiring us to exercise patience as steps are retraced. After April 6th, things begin to speed up and Mercury just wants to hurry and catch up to Venus, symbolizing love and money, along with her cohort Mars, already traveling with the Sun through Aries!  Values and desire are aligned for hopeful new beginnings as we await logic and reasoning to move from subconscious depths into the Spring's light. Exercise patience and understanding even as you plan and begin to move ahead.

   ...and remember as you keep your head in the stars, to also keep your feet on the ground~
