The beauty of your astrology right now is that it allows you to see yourself in others and to feel them within you. Another perspective on the same aspects illustrates you self-actualizing through your relationships. This concept used to be understood a lot better than it is now in our era when the prevailing theory of relationships is to use people. Self-actualizing through an intimate bond is a special, subtle kind of using.
For the Aries New Moon, we have the Sun and Moon conjunct (that is, together) in early Aries. It’s the first New Moon of the astrological year, reverberating with a sense of presence in the world and the associated urge to get things moving. Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of drive, libido, desire, physical action and even aggression or violence.
With the Sun now in Aries, the overall emphasis of the sky shifts from imaginative visioning to tangible action. That said, there is still much going on in the subtler realm of Pisces this week to tune into. And if you didn’t get to take some time at the equinox last week to write out a few goals for the next three months, the Aries New Moon this Sunday presents another prime seeding moment for the season.
You may be feeling confident, brassy and ambitious, though I suggest you monitor the world for your own reflection every time you turn around. You need feedback in realtime, and you need it from multiple sources. You have Uranus in your sign, which may be leading you to feel unstoppable. Jupiter in Cancer is offering a sense of safety while Pluto in Capricorn is suggesting that the sky is the limit.
Here we are, at the peak of the Uranus-Pluto era. This is the time to use the astrology to create our new reality. In this insightful edition, Eric explores the underlying issues that we need to address in order to move to a new level. Trust and cynicism are at the forefront during this pivotal moment in history.
We’re in the last few days of the Sun in Pisces, which means we’re in the last days before the cosmic clock resets and we begin a new astrological year with Aries. Following whatever tension and (hopefully) resolution you may have experienced with Sunday’s Full Moon, the equinox on Thursday offers a sense of reinvigorated energy and initiative.
