It's a brave new world when the Sun and Moon come together in Aries, especially when they align with revolutionary Uranus! Today's New Moon at 2:45 pm EST takes place at 10 degrees of the Cardinal Fire sign Aries. This is the time of year to put your energy into starting that one big thing you've been dreaming about all winter, and with the exciting assist from freedom-loving Uranus, you can clear the decks and make space in your life for it. Gather your enthusiasm, be brave, think outside the box and put your original idea out there!
A few words about timing... wait until Tuesday or Wednesday to let your new plans out of the bag. Today is too soon and unstable of a day. With the Moon in Taurus on Tuesday and Wednesday, things stabilize and you can appear more balanced, less excitable. Now, back to today's energy...
we're definitely feeling energized by the arrival of Spring and the promise of warmer weather, AND there are three really tricky aspects from the Moon to exuberant Jupiter, eccentric Uranus and transformational Pluto after the New Moon this afternoon.
The Moon squares off with Jupiter in Cancer a little after 5 pm tonight, increasing chances of over-doing, over-compensating or being just plain foolish. Avoid making any really important decisions, especially financial ones tonight. The other thing to watch out for, is overeating, over-drinking and any other exaggerated behaviors! This aspect is followed less than two hours later by the exact conjunction to Uranus for unpredictability, then two more hours until the Moon squares off with Pluto bringing up feeling of distrust and uneasiness. Keep a low profile tonight and ask yourself where you can see the need for some self change before engaging with the larger population.
We have two weeks for the build-up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra, during which we can make our new starts and activate our lives in a forward direction, not looking back or regretting the past. This energy is all about jumping out of the gate, following your passion and expressing your original ideas and practical plans. There are very supportive alignments from Mercury to both expansive Jupiter and focused Saturn at this New Moon, giving you the ability to encourage others and show them how determined and responsible you can be. Be uplifting, not down-trodden and watch others smile and nod as you share your insights!
A separating aspect between action-oriented Mars and beauty-loving Venus still has the impetus you need to help you move forward and impress loved ones with your drive. Just don't try to force others to see things your way, lead by example. Mars (directed energy) aligns with the nodes to help others see your enthusiasm and your determination and asks you to be self-confident and brave.
All in all, this Aries New Moon ought to encourage and buoy you up for taking bold steps to move forward. If you're feeling stuck, get in touch with your emotions, acknowledge your feelings and have a heart-to-heart talk with your self about letting go of the past and exploring this much needed new direction in your life. Accept your feelings and remember that the nostalgic pull to stay where you are is due to familiarity and/or a sense of comfort with the known, then lovingly release ties that bind you to the past and know you are making space for new beginnings across the board - new relationships, new ways of seeing yourself in the world and new feelings of excitement and possibility! Now, prepare to go boldly forward...
Remember to keep your head in the stars, your feet on the ground and your heart open~
