"To begin at the beginning" opens Under Milk Wood, the play by Dylan Thomas, the wild Welsh poet. A New Moon in Aries this week is the freshest of Moons. Seeds crack open and explode with the push of new vegetation.
As we begin this new Lunar cycle, the elements shift from watery Pisces to the Fire of Aries. The great spark of "I Am!"
Every zodiac sign has a multitude of facets. Yes, Aries is the warrior god but also the knight in shining armor who bravely answers the call to action in the name of Justice. Aries serves the needs of the underdog.
And Aries also is the new incarnation, the wide-eyed child just beginning to learn from experience how to grow into self-sufficiency. To become Free. Sovereign.
The mystic philosopher David Spangler, who helped initiate the Findhorn Community in Scotland, says that personal sovereignty is essential for the health of humanity and Gaia. When we stand in our own center and choose our actions from there, we bring to the great the Chorus of Life a new tone.
We must risk playing jazz! This is the vital force arising in the Aries New Moon on April First.
There are definitely some discordant notes being sounded on Sunday the 27th. Mercury enters Aries and wakes from it's Piscean dream time. The Moon in Aquarius is square to Uranus.
Impulsive emotions can lead to aggressive words...
OR...a fresh mental outlook (Mercury in Aries) can feel for humanitarian crises (Moon in Aquarius) and suddenly find a brilliant solution to Earthly challenges (Uranus in Taurus).
OR... fill in your individual _________!
With new awareness, we can choose which frequencies we want to resonate with. They are wildly numerous and new ones are always burgeoning.
And lower frequencies eventually will entrain to higher frequencies.
Monday, Venus will conjunct both Saturn and the Moon at 21 degrees of Aquarius. The essence of Love must meet with the Guardian of the Threshold to the age of Aquarius and birth a new emotional reality for the collective. "Bring me a Higher Love" sings Stevie Winwood.
As the week concludes on the 2nd, Mercury will melt in the rays of the Sun along with Chiron, the Shaman, in a healing blaze.
What magic energetics will be forged in this alchemy of the skies?
Then the Moon sails into its exaltation in Taurus on Saturday. Now we easily recall why it is that we love the beauty of the Earth and our strange and wonderful journey here.
Meet you on the road. We are travelers all with our individual tales to tell.
