Aries New Moon – March 30, 2014
The New Moon forms at 9 degrees, 58 minutes Aries, at 11:44 am PDT on March 30, 2014. Here we are. We’re at the edge of a new timeline. The next four weeks will be incredible. I don’t know about you – but it’s started already for me.
Let’s lay out the significant dates and aspects of the next month.
3/30 New Moon Aries/Moon conjunct Uranus – 10 degrees
4/1 Sun/Aries square Jupiter/Cancer – 12 degrees
4/2 Sun/Aries conjunct Uranus/Aries – 13 degrees
4/3 Sun/Aries square Pluto/Capricorn – 14 degrees
4/8 Sun/Aries opposition Mars/Libra – 19 degrees
4/15 Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon – 25 degrees Libra-Aries
4/20, 21, 22, 23 Grand Cardinal Cross – Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, Mars all at 14 degrees
4/29 Solar Eclipse/New Moon – 9 degrees Taurus
As you can see, the action is in the Cardinal signs. It is action of a very pure and primordial sort involving all four elements at middle degrees of the Cardinal signs. This is a huge movement of energy that will be felt in the highest, lowest, largest and most minute places and at physical and psychic levels. Not only is the physical world beginning to fray at the seams, but consciousness itself is moving with such speed that it’s difficult to keep one’s place in the flow. This is a shift. It is an opportunity. It is an ending and a beginning. Things are not going to go back to the way they were. Just get over that idea once and for all.
The New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus will kick off this next month by stimulating and destabilizing an already volatile situation. Everyone and everything will feel this. Everyone and everything IS feeling this!!! It is highly personal and at the same time extremely impersonal – almost transcendental in its universality. This New Moon slams the door on the old and flings open the gate to the new offering opportunity and uncertainty in equal measure. In many ways this is the culmination of the energies that began in earnest in at the Capricorn New Moon on January 1. The energy is very similar but it has advanced to the next level. That moon was 10 degrees Capricorn. This moon is 9 degrees Aries. Additionally, Pluto was conjunct that New Moon just as Uranus is conjunct this New Moon. Bingo! We have a square! Squares are all about adjustment. Either you make the adjustments or they will be made for you. The questions at the New Moon in Capricorn were: Who am I? How will I survive? Who are we in relationship? How do we not only survive but prosper, grow and transform? Buzzzzzzzz!!!!! Time’s up. Pencils down. Do you have your answer? It’s time to act.
It’s time to fish or cut bait. March gave us the opportunity to contemplate and to clear away the unnecessary cobwebs of consciousness and habits that just didn’t fit anymore. Our preconceptions, received ideas, conventions, and time-honored traditions have been pretty thoroughly annihilated, having been put through the wringer by the four previous Uranus – Pluto square formations. And so – that’s that – right? This is the beginning of the end of the old regime. The Moon represents the people. Moon in Aries is radical, energized and self-focused. She’s not in the mood to be placated and lied to. In fact, she’s pretty pissed off. Personal changes lay the foundation for changes with the collective. Little by little, the people are making themselves heard. They are meeting with diabolical and intense resistance from the powers that be but they are not deterred. And this is a VERY positive signal.
We’ll discuss the aspects and eclipses as they come up in April. I’m not going to lie and say that this transition/transformation will be easy. And I’m not going to make any predictions about will happen. Anything can happen. (Of course that’s always true but we tend to forget that.) Expect high highs and low lows. Expect the energetic waves to slam you to the bottom and spit you up and out again like a watermelon seed. This is uncertainty and opportunity at its finest. The sayings go: “April is the cruelest month.” But sometimes, “You’ve got to be cruel to be kind.”
Keep your eyes, mind, heart and soul wide open. Be ready for anything. Choose love over fear every time. And keep your shit tight! See you at the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse.
