Aries Equinox – Libra Full Moon – March 20, 2019
Happy Astrological New Year!
At 6:42 pm PST the Libra Full Moon will oppose the Aries Sun at 00 degrees, 08 minutes. Zero Aries is known as the “World Point” – where the astrological New Year begins. Today’s chart, at whatever time it occurs and where it may be located on the globe is indicative of the trends and events of our next trip around the Sun. The Sun is exalted in Aries, returning to the northern hemisphere to warm the earth and break the long winter. The Vernal equinox marks a distinct shift in the energies as the Sun begins his march to the summer solstice and the height of his powers.
Tonight’s Libra full moon is the last SuperMoon (at its closest approach to Earth) of 2019 and its nearness magnifies a number of issues. It is most especially focused on relationships. Not just the usual romantic kind – but relationships of every imaginable sort. In addition, the Sun in Aries conjuncts Chiron who is newly arrived at 01 degree. This will be a major difference to Chiron’s behavior in Pisces. In Aries, he will be concerned with individuation, power, adventure, courage and challenge. Chiron will be uncomfortable here after his long stay in Pisces. Learning to individuate is hard after all that oneness. But make no mistake, he will find the strength to do just that. Aries is the beginning – where spirit incarnates into matter, hits the ground running and swiftly moves to make its mark and take its chances. Above all, Aries is ready for action.
Venus in Aquarius and Mars in Taurus form an exact square tonight. Squares call for adjustments. The Fixed energy of the square will resist change. The tendency will be to dig in, retrench, and hope for the need for adjusting to blow over. Sadly, that will be a missed opportunity. Change comes from within but with the fixed signs it comes from the ground up. It needs to be real, tangible, and physical. The question here is: How or if to move forward in relationship – in other words: Is it worth it? What do you want? How will you get to where you want to be? It’s really past time to be paring down to the essentials – but now it’s imperative that we do that work. Please try to participate ONLY in things that will benefit you. We are getting pressed for time. Before we know it, 2020 will be upon us. And believe me, you will want to have your ducks in a row by this time next year.
There are lots of possibilities, opportunities and potentials that will present itself to you over the coming weeks. Paths and ideas that concern your relationships and life’s trajectory will assert themselves with force. Jupiter and Venus in exact sextile tonight will see to that. Your job is to determine what’s real – what’s do-able and most of all – WHAT YOU REALLY, REALLY WANT! (Every time I say that I see a Spice Girls Video in my head…). Mercury is still retrograde (so just forget about him for now – he won’t be much help until March 29 when he stations direct) in Pisces is square Jupiter in Sadge and conjunct Neptune tonight. Talk about imagination? The tendency to concoct wild schemes and to invent imaginary scenarios is off the charts. And when everything falls apart, as it’s bound to do under this aspect, there will be a lot of finger-pointing and bad feeling. So don’t do that. It will be difficult to achieve resolution under these circumstances but that’s the challenge (And Aries loves a challenge – remember?) No one said that you can’t dream – just remember what you really want and make a real effort to re-balance your path.
This is a Cardinal sign lunation. The Cardinal signs take initiative, think logically, make decisions, and move quickly. They don’t dilly-dally. Tonight’s chart is a roadmap. It’s full of information and clues for the next 365 days. Tonight’s Full Moon is your guide for the next 3 months – minimum. Actually it’s good for the whole year. If you haven’t had a reading in a while – I’d suggest that you consider it. And just in case you’re not getting the Full Moon in Libra lunation message – guess what – the Full Moon on April 19th will be in Libra too. That’s right – we can run but we can’t hide. Blessings to you all at this birth of a New Year. We have far to travel but we have good stars and planets to steer by! Have no fear. Move forward with clarity, strength and love.
Happy New Year!
