Spring Eclipse Season
We have entered the orb of our Spring Eclipse cycle. The new beginnings and changes being ushered in by the upcoming Aries New Moon are leading us to Taurus Partial Solar Eclipse followed by the Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse. Worldwide consequences are set to happen.
Look for tremendous new beginnings and huge endings to occur.
Taurus and Scorpio are the natural rulers of the 2nd House (material resources and what you personally value) and the 8th House (other people’s resources that benefit you, insurance, alimony, child support, credit, taxes and death). Look for matters related to these areas of your life to undergo profound change and revelations.
Our lives are being unequivocally disrupted, so that necessary global changes can result. We’re being shown rare glimpses into our future. Choices must be made.
Aries New Moon
The Aries New Moon each year brings an opportunity for stepping up and taking action. A New Moon always marks a time of new beginnings, when creative pursuits and dreams get the initial seed funding needed for them to be, at least, initiated. They're given a shot!
At the dark of the moon, just before the new moon, is your very best time for letting go of what no longer works for you. Composting and recycling the past and allowing it to nourish new dreams and future promises yet to come.
The symbol of the zodiac sign of Aries is the Ram. A masculine sign, Rams are male bighorn sheep that live in the mountains and frequently known to settle arguments by butting heads with others.
The astrological aspects occurring at the time of the Aries New Moon, however, are strongly supportive and offer opportunities that most will find easy and ripe for the picking.
Make the most of this auspicious time of new beginnings. The universe may be signaling its time for you to step up and be a leader. Now you get a chance to be a part of the solution. Life is not a spectator sport.
There can be tremendous optimism at work, yet trepidation, too. Life doesn’t come with guarantees about how things will work out. So much is left to chance. Will that keep you from acting now. It’s unlikely, but much depends upon how your own personal planetary aspects are being activated in your astrology chart.
It’s an especially energized time when fiery hot conversations about world events are taking center stage. It’s a time when everywhere you look people and life events are rapidly moving headlong towards the future.
Tips for How the Aries New Moon Can Affect You Personally
Everyone has the influence of Aries and the Moon in one, or more areas of their chart.
Here are a few areas of your chart to look for:
- Look to your 1st house (Aries house ruled by Mars) and 8th house (Scorpio house old ruler Mars) - what personal planets, or points (Midheaven or Ascendant) are located here?
- What house is your natal Mars located in your personal astrology chart? (Mars is the ruler of Aries.
- As Mars is currently transiting the sign of Aquarius, all themes related to Aquarius, and the planet Mars are especially highlighted. Watch for the need to take initiative and action for forward movement that propels humanity into the future.
- What planets and points are located in your 1st house and what house is Mars currently transiting in your own chart?
