"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

Scorpio New Moon

   The Sun and Moon align today in the 8th degree of Scorpio at 1:38pm, EST. The inner and outer facets of the personality crave creative expression. Emotional intensity is the soup du jour, along with a more finely tuned sensitivity and intuition. I hope you can be with the person(s) that can allow an interplay of your strong  passions and desires to be expressed. This is the beginning of a new project that involves joint finances, emotional merging or getting to the bottom of something long held and deeply felt.

   If you're feeling the need to explore your own personal realms, then by all means, avoid connecting with those people in your life who tend to push your buttons or demand too much of you. The ego self needs to listen to the higher self and take care of itself!! On the other hand, this may be the perfect time for bonding with a significant other on a very deep emotional level.

   The Sun and Moon are also conjunct mercurial Mercury in Scorpio, so you are able to be an effective communicator if you speak from your emotions and your heart. Try not to over-think things and remember that aggressiveness, moodiness and impatience are the norm under Scorpio's influence. Watch out for jealousies and suspicions and be willing to forgive and forget!

  With Neptune in a flowing aspect to both the Sun and Moon in this New Moon chart, intuition offers a big assist to your creative process. You can attract people to you for your kind and gentle nature, but need to watch out for putting people on a pedestal  or confusing their motive for your own and vice versa. Joint projects in the arts and business take on a deeper meaning when in collaboration.

    Give and take can flow thanks to expansive Jupiter in Libra positively aligned with determined Saturn. Success can be achieved through focus and a willingness to partner with another. Be careful not to put all your confidence in another; be strong and use your own resources, because you have this!!

   In the month ahead, remember to seek inner guidance and keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~

Aries Full Moon

   The Moon in Aries exactly opposes the Sun in Libra at 12:23am early tomorrow here on the East coast. It was a beautiful Moonrise in the East a little after 6pm this evening, while the Sun setting to the west put on a spectacular show as well! Keep this image of a lovely juxtaposition in mind as you begin to relate to the Full Moon energy.

   What is this Soli/Lunar dance about this cycle... self and others... balance and imbalance... new pathways and widened bridges. How are you feeling about the relationships in your life? What drastic changes have you either sensed on the horizon or experienced lately? This Full Moon can feel like a roller coaster ride, with thrilling heights and sudden drops.

  The Moon in Aries sits with revolutionary change-maker Uranus, bringing waves of excitement and urges for freedom to explore new avenues and pathways to wholeness. Acting impulsively probably isn't the best way to deal with all the uncertainty swirling around. However, being brave enough to take steps in a new direction would be in keeping with the current lunar energies. Remind yourself that the Sun in Libra is sitting just across the way to help you steady yourself as you go.

   Another factor in this Full Moon chart is the Sun aligned with Mercury, making communication imperative if we are to understand one another or at least respect each others' points-of-view. All the singular Aries influence may keep some egos focused on their agenda and not considering the needs of others. Do your darndest to be mindful of the feelings and needs of your significant others. Take turns listening and try not to push your agenda over your loved one's.

   Remember to breathe, inhaling and exhaling, seeking a place of stillness and well-being until you remember that you are good enough just the way you are. The contentment you seek is within you and once you experience self-acceptance, the other pieces of the relationship puzzle will find their way and fit into your life exactlythe way they were meant to. Dream big, think positively and imagine your inner harmony spreading outward to enfold everyone you come into contact with.

   Oh, and keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
