New Moon in Aries

🔻New Moon in Aries. April 7, 2016🔻

The first new moon of the astrological new year kicks off in 18° Aries. With a solid six planets in fire signs, things are bound to get moving. The sun, moon, Venus and Uranus all meet in the zodiac sign of Aries. 

Uranus joins the sun and promises to shake things up a bit. Unexpected developments are on the horizon, and new moons bring new intentions. This is the time to proactively plan. Aries represents the self, or "ME" energy. After two long years of Aries + Libra eclipses we are now in better standings with ourselves. This new moon lends energy to setting your sights high on personal goals. 

Venus in Aries reflects on loving oneself. Practicing boundaries within partnerships. We all know in order to have healthy relationships, have to be in alignment with ourselves. 

Venus is also the ruler of commerce and luxury goods. The impending Mercury retrograde in Taurus on April 28th suggests a need to look over finances at this time, and be realistic about how we are spending. 

Sun will trine Saturn, giving us some sort of recognition. You'll be seeing signs of your hard work paying off. Use this as the fuel to empower your intentions. Keep pushing. Saturn will now be going retograde through Sagittarius, allowing you apply and review what he's been teaching you.

The sun will also be squaring Pluto, bringing up issues related to control at this time. Remember that the only way to push forward is to change, and change for the better. Let go of power struggles, practice non attachment. 
Where do you personally want to be in 6 months? The full moon in Aries at that time will reveal the intentions you set for yourself today. How can you be better structured to succeed in your hearts desire? How can you honor yourself and keep the delicate balance in relationships?

Choose wisely. Be specific. And get ready. 
In honor of this new moon, work with the element of fire. Burn your intentions. Set your candles on an altar. Give thanks for the endings. They make way for new beginnings.

Lunar Eclipse in Libra. The Final Chapter.

Since October of 2013, the Libra eclipses have highlighted various issues. However, the phrase that comes to mind is “boundaries within partnerships”. As we know, eclipses come in pairs setting off chain reactions of transformative energy. There is no coincidence that it takes two to tango in partnerships. The opposing eclipses have been happening simultaneously in the Zodiac sign of Aries. This is seen as the “I AM” energy versus Libra’s “WE ARE”. This is a huge finale in the topics of relationships of the romantic and professional kind. What lessons have you learned about asserting yourself, and standing up for whats in alignment with what YOU want?

The lessons of personal growth and respect for some of you have been grueling. Off and on relationships may come to a close after several year patterns. You may notice yourself breaking free of  restrictive professional partnerships. You may be finding you’re on the tail end of striving to have a better relationship with yourself. We’ve learned that without boundaries in our lives and healthy levels of assertion we are not honoring our true self.

The Sun in Aries appears to be conjunct with transiting mercury. Lunar eclipses are intense and emotional times. It’s not uncommon to be shown something that may not have been visible before. You may be blindsided with the reality of what some relationship dynamics are. This is an extremely combustable aspect, and reminds us we need to stop, and really process how we feel before being emotionally reactive. 

Saturn will be squaring transiting Jupiter in Virgo and having a conversation about bringing more structure and organization to your life. How can you take the next step, and level up responsibility wise? Issues of priorities come into play. In order to grow into what you need to become, you may need to evaluate what relationships in your life are limiting.

Stand up for yourself. Take pride in the work you’ve done. Don’t be afraid to walk away from those who don’t value the new and improved versions of you. You are worthy.
