Aries New Moon: Set Your World On Fire

Aries New Moon: Set Your World On Fire

On Saturday April 18 at 2.57 pm EST (11.57 am PDT, 12.57 pm MDT, 7.57 pm GMT and early on the 19th in Australia) we have a New Moon in Aries at 28 deg 25′ Aries. So close to that last and critical degree of Aries. This New Moon has a flavor of Taurus also. This New Moon is a loner. A beginning. Asking you where you are going to set your world on fire. Where you are going to step up and initiate. Where are you going to BEcome the I and move forward. Aries is warrior energy. It’s time to embrace your inner warrior. Aries is clarity and striving. It’s time to make clear goals and move to make them manifest when the Sun moves into Taurus on April 20th. Incidentally, Louise means warrior maiden, and this New Moon aspects my asteroid Hygeia, the Goddess of wholistic healing. How interesting as we move to wholistically heal my daughter and, thereby, our whole family. Over the last few months and years we have been transformed. We have been asked to look at where we are unique, where we are going to shine and what our connection is with the collective. We have been asked what our place is in all this.

We have been squeezed and changed. Pushed to grow and evolve. Not that we are ever done. But we are coming out of...

Muddling Through The Wonk

Well wonk is maybe not a word but it’s my new word. I was chatting with a friend about how the universe is so wonky right now with the Grand Cross of April 2014 building. And it feels perfect for the energies right now so wonk is my new word. Though the dictionary defines wonk as ‘a studious or hardworking person.’ so let’s say I have redefined wonk. Or use wonkiness if these things matter to you.   Now I want you all to just look at that first paragraph. For me the energy of it it feels like the current planetary energies. Redefining, breaking free of the accepted rules. A time of huge transformations and, well, wonk - or wonkiness.   Things feel challenging. There are a lot of global happenings and undercurrents but I want to talk more about the wonk within. The thing about the current energies is that they are bringing huge internal tensions. Coming up we have a Lunar Eclipse on the 15th April, the Cardinal Grand Cross is at it’s most exact on the 22nd April (though it dominates the whole month in reality) and a Solar Eclipse on the 29th April.   These energies have been rumbling and brewing since 2012 as the Pluto/Uranus square that forms the crux of this Grand Cross has been going on since then and this will be the fifth of seven exact squares between the two heavy hitters. I’m actually not going to bore you with all the astrology in this post. For more detail on that and what in means on a weekly basis you...
