On Saturday April 18, 2015, the “New Moon” provides us with a great time to initiate projects and make changes. The Sun has been in Aries, the 1st sign of the Zodiac, since 3/20 and with both luminaries in this assertive, often rambunctious Fire sign, expect some volatile, combustible happenings. Beware of rash moves and acting/speaking without thinking, but since the sign is ruled by active, energetic planet Mars, you can take advantage of all that good aggressive physicality. Go for it! (But, keep the flame thrower in the closet.)
“New” energy will last a few weeks – even as the sign changes to solid, earthy Taurus. (Full Moon May 3, 2015- best time to complete what you started.)
*Aries New Moon: 2:57PM EDT – 11:57AM PDT
From Saturday morning, January 24, 2015, until early Monday, the Moon will be in feisty Fire sign Aries. When the Lunar orb transits the 1st sign of the Zodiac, which is ruled by warrior planet Mars, we feel braver and more physical, more “up for anything”. Depending upon what the “anything” is, it could be the best of times or the most precarious of times.
Aries is great for energy and adventure. You won’t want to sit around for too long in one place. Take advantage of the urge for action and movement – do something exciting, do something different. However, make no rash moves, curb any “in your face”, “won’t back down” reactions. Power down occasionally so that loved ones don’t feel that they’re in the presence of a bulldozer. Have fun and be nice.
Have a dynamic weekend!
This month’s Full Moon, a total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon), is in Fire sign Aries. The 1st sign of the Zodiac is ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars. Combustible, physical and aggressive, this sign’s usual “in your face” traits will be intensified by the power of a “Full” phase and also by unpredictable transiting Uranus. Even though currently retrograde, until 12/21/14, it still can be full of surprises and urges for revolution.
Do the suggested Full Moon things – finish up old projects, clarify any fuzzy ideas that keep hanging around (remember Mercury is Retrograde now, so this is a good time to review). Use the extra Aries energy and take action. By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the “new” ideas, things, spaces, people. However, forceful Aries can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t torch everything while trying to weed out the old, think things through before the ashes start to float around.
- Full Moon Aries– October 8, 2014: 6:51AM EDT / 3:51AM PDT
Beginning on Friday May 23, 2014, the Moon vibrates in energetic Fire sign Aries for most of the weekend. As always with Aries, ruled by “warrior planet” Mars, make sure you have something physical to do. All this sign’s energy can make it a fun time, but just reign in any aggressive urges, think before you act. Power down occasionally so that loved ones don’t feel that they are in the presence of a bulldozer, but by all means, take advantage of the action.
The mood will change on Sunday afternoon as the lunar orb shifts into solid, steady, Earth sign Taurus through Monday. Thoughts can turn to security – financial and physical. Keep re evaluating how you spend and save your money. Even though, beauty loving, food loving, “loving” Venus ruled Taurus can be attached to ideas and be resistant to change, try to be flexible. Obstinacy may limit new ideas and opportunities.
Have a safe Memorial Day – take time to remember.
Beginning on Saturday morning April 26, 2014, extra oomph and extra buzz are just some of the possibilities as a result of the Aries Moon. Got something to do, something to start, something to face???Tap into this Fire sign’s high energy.
Moderate the combustion – that whole “catching more flies with honey” thing. Go with the hammer in the velvet glove approach. Personally, I think super things can happen while the Lunar orb is in Mars ruled Aries, as long as feet stay on the ground. Erratic Uranus is transiting and unexpected things can happen. Keep cockiness to a minimum. (Is that even possible with Aries? Well, try.)
Atmosphere calms as the Moon moves into practical Taurus on Monday morning, just in time for beginning of the week duties.
No matter what you do, seize the opportunity and have a fun weekend!
We start off the weekend under the influence of the Pisces Moon. Sensitive, mystical, Neptune ruled, Water sign Pisces highlights our caring and empathetic side while also awakening any escapist tendencies under the surface. Stay grounded, make note of any dreams that can be used in the creative process and be kind and compassionate. (But remember, if a story, a promise, a gift seems too good to be true – it probably is) Stay real. Next up, energetic Aries!
A New Moon is usually a great time to create and initiate things, but as the Lunar orb jumps into Aries on 3/29/14, results may seem slow in coming.. You’ve got things to do and you want to do them FAST. (Which is the usual Aries speed of choice) However, it will sometimes feel like you’re slogging thru molasses or there is a bottleneck at the starting gate– too many people at the front of the line trying to get their things done just as quickly. Mars, the Aries ruler warrior planet, is in Retrograde. This occurs only every 2 years and it can show up as restraints, blocked flows, etc. Be aware, focus, watch the temper and be nice, even when patience is wearing thin. Projects can be successful even when in “slow” mode.
*Aries New Moon 3/30/14: 2:45PM Eastern / 11:45AM Pacific
** Mars Retrograde: 3/1/14 thru 5/19/14
Regardless of what you do, enjoy the weekend!
Pisces intuition and creativity powers up, in a gentle way, with the New Moon on Friday evening 2/28/14 EST and Saturday morning 3/1/14 PST. The Sun is also in this sensitive Water sign and when both luminaries are together, the Moon phase is “New”. This type of Lunar energy is good for starts and beginnings of any kind. So, take the time to plug into your spirituality and inner conversations. Listen, take notes and make use of this dreamy, imaginative time. Go deep. Create something new!
The moon will change signs, into snap/crackle/pop Fire sign Aries, early on Sunday, but the “New” energy can last for approximately 10 days until the end of the 1st quarter. Activity, impulse, and passion might compel you to manifest some ideas that came to you during one of those Piscean dream sequences – whether sleeping or awake.
*New Moon – 11:59PM 2/28 Eastern – 2:59AM 3/1 Pacific
On Saturday morning, January 4, 2014, the Moon floats into Water sign Pisces for the weekend. Sensitive and impressionable, we may experience vibrant dreams, imaginings, relaxing of boundaries and cravings to escape. Generally, this can all be fine – great for creativity, but not so much if reality loses anchor.
Neptune, planet ruler of this 12th Zodiac sign, can infuse us with feelings of vulnerability and compassion, blur life’s edges and fog what is genuine. Do remain grounded and sober. If there is something important to be done, get a grip, focus and handle it, but if it can wait, hold off until things are clearer, less vague.
(Monday brings a total shift – an energetic, forceful, impulsive Aries Moon.)
This month’s Full Moon is in the Fire sign of Aries on Friday October 18, 2013. During this Full phase, the Libra Sun is directly opposite and lights the Aries Moon. Rather than the more familiar crescent shape, the Moon is beautifully round. As it “wanes” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, it’s a good time to finish up old projects, clean up messes that you have been staring at for the past few weeks. An Aries Moon is perfect for physical activity. So use the extra energy and get it done! By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the “new” – ideas, things, spaces, people. However, this forceful sign, ruled by Mars, can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t automatically use the flame thrower to weed out the old, think things through before throwing it out.
Then as the Venus ruled Taurus Moon arrives early Saturday morning, we have 2 days of practicality, resourcefulness, security mindedness along with leanings toward comfort and beauty. Diverse and all good.
Have a great weekend!.
An extra oomph, an extra buzz are just some of what we will experience as a result of the Aries Moon transit beginning on Friday morning 8/23/13. Aries, the first Fire sign of the Zodiac, ruled by planet Mars, can make us confrontational and hurried, so watch the combustion. Strive for the hammer in the velvet glove approach. Personally, I think super things can happen with all the high energy as long as feet stay on the ground. Keep cockiness to a minimum whenever possible. (At least try.)
Atmosphere calms as the Moon moves into practical Taurus early Sunday morning. Our thoughts turn to money – again. But, since this Earth sign is ruled by Venus, wanting to get close to love and luxury will also be in the air. Beautify self and surroundings to spur romace. And maybe strategize about what needs to be done to feel financially and emotionally secure?
Have a terrific weekend!
