Sunday’s New Moon in Aries is power-packed with cosmic connections, most notably, joining Uranus—the “wake up and smell the coffee” planet, and squaring off with Pluto—the planet of death, rebirth and transformation. Explosive. Big stuff. Take a deep breath…here’s the scoop:
New Moon, new beginnings, and this is especially true in the sign of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Aries stimulates our desire to forge new territory, and create something unique for ourselves. This New Moon asks: What do you want to achieve? It’s a selfish moon, in the best sense--offering opportunities for self-realization. It’s also hot, fiery and uncompromising. Take heed.
Rebellious Uranus (also in Aries) ups the equation, inspiring us to liberate ourselves from past obstacles. This intense, freedom-loving combination is sure to stir the dust around aspects of your life that need to be, well, liberated. A great use of this powerful energy is to look for the inspiration in your choices, instead of succumbing to frustration or aggression. Uranus’ higher vibration, encourages breakthroughs while keeping the big picture in mind.
Slow-moving Pluto in one-step-at-a-time Capricorn challenges this New Moon to stay grounded, and engage our transformations at a steady pace. It reminds us that we are evolving soul creatures, and our evolution should not be hurried. Transformation is a journey. Slow and steady, often wins the day.
When I was searching for an archetype, a symbol for this fierce New Moon, I thought, who better than Oprah, in all her celestial glory? (From her new film: A Wrinkle in Time.)
P.S. How could I forget—Mercury in Aries also goes direct at the same time as all this planetary drama. Just another reminder to stay the course, and give yourself lots of space to process all of the change.
