New Moon- at 15’17” Aries Friday April 5th, 2019 1:50AM PT/ 4:50AM ET
There is a robust potency awakening. The spark that fuels the tenacity for life. To live, to grow, to reach peaks and procreate. But to create, we must first tap the inner fuel available to each of us- our Divine Spark. The Moon receives her re-birth in just that spark of Aries Friday, and she sings of potency. Beginning in the month of April, the time of potential surging forth from once seemingly hidden and shelled sources, the inspiration for our intentions is literally all around us.
Take time Thursday evening to connect with the rays of the Sun, where the Moon will be bathing this Friday at Sunset. See if you can sense, even see the forces of the natural world at work. Swirling in ember hues, orange, gold and pink, the elementals are dancing with the vibration to co-create life again. Perhaps we can learn something from their playful excitement at the new dawn rising in a Spring morning, the potential of the swelling seed, the fiery light of Sol blessing us with his radiance.
The Warrior’s ruler, Mars is in the sign of Gemini in sextile to Chiron in Aries. Seeking connections, information and understand the dual nature of being an immortal soul within the confines of a human existence. There is healing available, in forging new friendships, connections and the information that can propel us forward towards rising into our proper roles as healers, teachers and guides. Pay attention, and follow your intuition. What are your daily experiences trying to show you? Intuition is the gift of fire-signs. Gemini can make sense of daily, practical lessons. Playfulness and innocence should not be sacrificed on the road to wisdom.
This Moon offers a chance to set intentions around our Self-Concept. How do you identify? Are some of these identities worn out? Check to see if they make you feel empowered. How do you see yourself? Talk to yourself? Where do your words dishonor your truth? How we treat ourselves teaches others how to treat us.
To heal our relationships, we must first heal our relationship to ourselves. What do you want more of for yourself? More time for self-care? Learning? Time with friends? Whatever it is, Aries is here to empower you to protect the Comic Order of all that is Sacred in life. In order to do this, we must first take the time and energy to learn what is truly sacred to ourselves, what feels right in the gut, what sets our soul afire.
For Ceremony- make offerings of fire, bless some water and write that which you wish to have more potency in your life on paper. Is it self-love? The courage to follow your heart or to know your heart more? The will to seek to grow into the best version of you possible? To stand in your true power?
The dedication to seek the healing you know you need and to share your sacred gifts with the world is available now. Perhaps you want a fresh start. To wake in the morning with an exuberance for the day ahead like when you were a child. Perhaps it is a move or a new project. These things are all very strongly supported, as are finding the right connections and practical steps to make them actually happen.
The Moon and then Sun will be moving into a square with Saturn not long after this lunation, our discipline and integrity will be tested as to whether or not we really want the things we say we do. If not then let them go. No use in trying to manifest something because it’s what we think we should do or what others want. Aries is about being authentically you.
Dig deep to find what truly resonates in your intuition. All fire signs hold the power of intuition. Use your tools- pull cards, sit in meditation, ask your guides, consult your birth-chart and seek that which is truly in your heart. Aries doesn’t need others’ approval, she is the Warriess in tune with her cosmic vision and that which she is willing to fight for.
All of this masculine energy of Air and Fire is cooled by Venus and Mercury still in the realms of Pisces. Hearts tender, sweetness in reach and all the dreams and visions of this sign continue to grace us. If things still feel foggy, maybe try tapping in through the Piscean tools of dreams, meditation, music, poetry and the flow states produced by just being. This is a special gift as Pluto is with the South Node right, releasing shadow, fears and rules created by our subconscious. Make the most of it.
