Astrology Update, March 27th, 2017: New Moon in Aries

This morning started off early with the Moon in Pisces squaring Saturn in Sagittarius and turning void-of-course, which can make for a dreary and frustrating way to start the day, not to mention a stereotypical Monday morning.  The Moon in hard aspect to Saturn tends to dredge up our fears and insecurities, leading to depression and even despair, or at the very least a sort of numbing sense of restriction.  Combined with the aimlessness of the void-of-course period, this made for a morning where the best course of action was sticking to our routines and not getting caught up in any bold new plans until the morning had progressed a few more hours.

Thankfully, later this morning the Moon entered Aries, giving our emotions and instincts a fresh new start, as Aries is energetic and action-oriented.  Our instincts during this lunar transit are brave and excited about life, interested in exploring new possibilities and treating life as one big adventure.  Though our tempers are a little shorter under an Aries Moon, so are our attention spans, so we aren’t likely to stay mad for long.  We’re also likely to be more straightforward during this time, more impatient and wanting to cut to the chase.  While we aren’t likely to lose all of the altruism fostered under the Pisces Moon, still we are more self-concerned and self-motivated now, seeking to make our mark on the world.  Personal ambitions are highlighted now, as is self-image.  Since Aries is ruled by Mars, physical activity is of greater interest as well – this is a good time to get out and enjoy the spring weather!

Speaking of Mars, the red planet is a player in one of the big astrological events of the day, with Mars in Taurus sextiling Neptune in Pisces.  This puts our energy and drive that is currently operating on practical, material levels in a harmonious relationship with our hopes, dreams, ideals, and spiritual outlook.  This is a time for acting from a place of compassion without losing sight of our own self-interest, and being able to see the bigger picture even while we are engaged in very mundane and physical activities.  This is also a good time for enjoying sensory experience, and for relationships that are both sexual and spiritual, erotic and romantic.  Those of us engaged in esoteric studies are more likely to make good progress now, and those with more pragmatic outlooks may find the view improved by an unexpectedly rosy tint to the day.

To add to that rosiness, the Moon in Aries conjuncts Venus retrograde in Aries this afternoon.  Though Venus retrograde is less certain in her lust for life than when she is direct, still she is active and engaging, warm and affectionate, instinctively desiring companionship but still nobody’s pushover, and our emotions are now following her lead.  This is a time of new crushes and lively flirtation, and perhaps a bit more aggressive pursuit of who and what we desire.  If we’ve been hesitant before about such pursuit, now may be the time that we finally work up the guts to go for it, especially with the Mars/Neptune sextile adding both romantic and practical fuel to our fire.

Later this afternoon the Moon in Aries trines Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, encouraging us to just surrender to the experiences of the day, though since this trine is in fiery signs, that surrender isn’t likely to be passive!  Rather, we may find ourselves happily swept along in a rush of fiery action, spirited and fervent and maybe a little breathless.  Black Moon Lilith and the Moon both operate on the unconscious level, so we may not even be aware of this dynamic, only later realizing that we’ve been riding a flame wave that may well have burned through more than a few inhibitions.  Black Moon Lilith is not a tame force by any stretch of the imagination, and following on the heels of the Moon/Venus conjunction and the Mars/Neptune sextile amplifies the erotic charge running through the air this afternoon and into the evening.  If indeed we did take advantage of the impetus from that Moon/Venus conjunction in pursuit of our desires, this Moon trine Black Moon Lilith may take the reins off unexpectedly.  Careful what you wish for…

Tonight’s New Moon in Aries plays out against this backdrop, along with the slowly tightening Jupiter/Pluto square that is currently under less than 1 degree of exactitude and will be exact by the end of this month.  The New Moon is a time for setting intentions to be grown through the lunar cycle, reaching fullness at the Full Moon and then being disseminated into the world as the Moon wanes.  At the New Moon the Moon conjuncts the Sun in the sky, no longer reflecting the Sun’s light but instead bringing unconsciousness and consciousness to work together, with our conscious intentions incubating in the darkness of the unconscious.  Against the backdrop noted above, the drive of both Moon and Sun in fiery Aries is great initiatory power, good for intentions regarding start-ups and bold new changes in our lives, but there is the potential for things to go a little wild in the process.  The encroaching power of the Jupiter/Pluto square reminds us that whatever we are planning is likely to have to contend with the ongoing conflict in our society between the desire for social harmony and the consolidation of power by wealthy and often hidden forces.  Faith and optimism versus greed and corruption.  Socio-political chickens coming home to roost.  No matter how personal our goals now, they are likely to become political, as the American Dream of shaping one’s own destiny is revealed to have been built on a legacy of oppression and lies, and the fable of democracy here drags down others with it abroad.

In addition, Venus retrograde’s reassessment of interpersonal interactions is happening in a sign that is impulsive and not always mindful of consequences, while the Jupiter/Pluto square is brimful with consequences, and since Venus is currently inconjunct the North Node in Virgo, there is a further disconnect between what we desire and the lessons needed by our souls.  On the plus side, Mercury in Aries is moving into a trine with Saturn in Sagittarius (exact in another couple days), so our minds are gaining the strength that comes with recognizing our limitations and the restrictions of reality, and applying Saturnine discipline to overcome obstacles.  This is a strength that we are going to need to set our intentions with this New Moon and make them stick.  This trine also resonates with a wider trine between Saturn and Uranus/Eris, so that our discipline is well aware of the Uranian rebellion and agitation that has been in and out of conflict with both Pluto and Jupiter in recent years, and we have the capacity to calmly work in alignment with the socio-political changes fomenting around us.

Since the ruler of this New Moon is Mars, currently in Taurus in a harmonious sextile with Neptune in Pisces, there is also some chance for our ideals to positively influence our practical efforts in connection with our New Moon intentions.  With Ceres in Taurus as well in a loose trine with Pluto in Capricorn, we should be mindful of how our intentions may nurture and nourish us, quite possibly on a very practical level.  Though the alignments of this New Moon do not create any notable configurations, nonetheless there is an interesting overall dynamic at work here, of balancing what we want versus what the surrounding reality is shaping, and keeping some measure of hope and idealism and even romanticism alive even as reality seems more and more grim.  Aries is a sign whose efforts can seem like a flash in the pan with its eagerness and impulsiveness, but against the backdrop of ongoing transcendental and generational drama and with Aries’ ruler Mars active in fixed Taurus via the Mars/Neptune sextile, there is the potential for a lot more staying power to the intentions we set now than is apparent at first blush.

Astrology Update, March 1st, 2017: Wild Ideas

Today got off to an early and potentially cranky start with the Moon in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn this morning, amplifying the power of our emotional and instinctive responses and increasing the potential for control issues to take center stage.  Both Aries and Capricorn can be headstrong, and Aries in particular is not known for holding back on its hair-trigger temper, making any power struggles resulting from this aspect that much more explosive.  Pluto in Capricorn is all about transformative forces related to the powers-that-be, and the Moon in Aries has us instinctually focused on what serves our own identities and goals as individuals, so there was a strong likelihood of conflicts between individual desires and institutionally-enforced standards this morning.  Since the Moon governs the unconscious, of course, this would all be likely to play out in ways that people were not consciously aware of, adding to the potential frustration.

Unfortunately, this frustration probably didn’t ease up as the morning progressed.  Toward mid-day our emotions and instincts got a double-whammy from the Moon conjuncting Uranus in Aries and then within minutes opposing Jupiter in Libra, reinforcing the ongoing Jupiter/Uranus opposition and its balancing act between individual and societal/relationship needs.  Moon/Uranus conjunctions tend to make us feel scattered and impulsive, even more so in already-impulsive Aries, and heighten our desire for freedom at all costs.  Libra on the other hand wants peace at all costs, even at the cost of being a doormat, and Jupiter in Libra adds the weight of authority to that desire.  After the Moon/Pluto square, chances are that we were already chafing under the weight of societal expectations and forces larger than ourselves, with that feeling dialed to the limit by the Moon/Uranus conjunction, so Jupiter could well have dumped kerosene on that particular fire.

And if we thought things couldn’t get more explosive, think again – this afternoon Mars just had to throw his hat in the ring, with the Moon conjuncting Mars and setting our already testy emotions on full-combat mode.  Our instinctive reactions are now aggressive, driven, and full of energy, ready to set the world ablaze in order to get what we want, which could just be payback against whatever restricting influence has us most riled up at the moment.  Unfortunately, as already noted, this morning’s restrictions were most likely of the authoritarian and institutional variety, so there may be more than a few David-and-Goliath scenarios playing out as I write.  Those of us finding ourselves in the midst of the inferno today need to take a deep breath and ask ourselves if this fight is something we really want, and if we’re ready and able to face the consequences once it’s underway.  If not, it’s time to take a step back and get our feelings in check, or better yet, find a more productive way to channel our anger and vent our frustrations.  Righteous anger can move mountains, but picking unwinnable fights may not be what is required, unless we’re well and truly backed into a corner with no other options, in which case, it may well be time to stand our ground, and Mars conjuncting the Moon will certainly give us the vigor to do just that.

This evening, that vigor continues in a more sobering fashion as the Moon trines Saturn, signaling that it’s time to get serious about what we feel, assess the limitations and restrictions that we are facing, and get ready to dig in for the long haul in terms of what we want and how we’re going to go about achieving it, particularly in relation to our beliefs and ideals and how we manifest them in the world at large.  This is a good time to take whatever today’s wildfires stirred up and temper our intentions, combining both passion and elbow grease to our goals.  Since this trine starts a void-of-course period lasting for a few hours, routine tasks are favored now, and while they may be unglamorous our Saturn-steadied emotions are now thoroughly up to these tasks, ready to grind through whatever needs to be done in service to our larger vision.

Of course, this happens just in time for that vision to face some potential clouding by the Sun conjuncting Neptune in Pisces, an aspect of potential confusion that began affecting our judgement yesterday and will continue into tomorrow.  On one hand, Neptune is concerned with spiritual matters and creativity, breaking down boundaries between us and encouraging unifying and imaginative experiences, which are now foremost in our consciousness thanks to this contact with the Sun.  On the other hand, Neptune can encourage us to get lost in fantasy, spinning fables to ourselves and others, whether based in wishful hyperbole, delusion, or outright deception.  Our desire to escape into such stories as well as drugs and alcohol could get us into a real pickle at this time, especially after this tension-filled day that may already have been worsened by this influence sending our tempers after entirely the wrong targets.  Now is a time to be careful in trying to understand our perceptions, not committing to promises (ours or others’) nor contracts for at least another couple of days.  We are likely to be wearing rose-coloured glasses tonight, and while that could well be a relief after the day’s frustrations, we should use them judiciously in favor of creative and spiritual pursuits, spending time with people we trust in pursuit of whatever form of escapism we can safely enjoy now, and not getting bogged down in elusive details that are likely to change shape in the clearer light of morning.

On the plus side, in the midst of all of this watery and bewitching Piscean dreamland, the Moon throws us a lifeline by entering practical and earthy Taurus, helping our emotions at least to get a firmer grip on what is real.  Since Taurus is the most materially-oriented of the signs, we are likely to be most interested in matters of material security at this time, and are also going to want to take things slow and steady.  Creature comforts are favored now – good food, good drink, and sensory pleasures, preferably without thinking too hard about all of that etherial Neptunian nonsense.  Of course, since Taurus and Pisces work harmoniously together, this Moon is not directly countering our Neptunian fantasies, just giving us something to ground ourselves with on an instinctual level.  Be prepared to want more sleep than usual (good time for Neptune-inspired dreaming!) and have trouble sticking to diets.  Rather than fighting our desire to retreat into comfort food, if we can find a way to take pleasure in eating and doing what is healthy for us we can make the most of this time and use it to stay grounded while our conscious minds expand their limits and our imaginations run wild.

Astrology Update, February 28th, 2017: Brilliant Affection

After the astrological hoopla of the past few days, today is kind enough to give us one aspect only:  The Moon conjuncts Venus in Aries tonight, bringing a pleasurable touch to the end of a day that is likely to have seen us eager to explore our possibilities and make a name for ourselves in the process.  While the conjunction is a hard aspect, Venus is the lesser benefic of the zodiac, a kindly if self-indulgent influence, bringing additional warmth and affection to a bold and enthusiastic Aries Moon.  Our emotions and instincts at this time are impulsive, our pleasures found in action and bravery.  Physical activity is favored at this time, whether for sport or exercise or just plain fun.  Our instincts will make the difference in any form of competition, the friendlier the better with Venus involved, though friendly is not likely to mean delicate – Venus in Aries is a warrior woman, after all.  But Venus is still a lover, even if her current Aries placement has her feeling as though the bedroom is just another arena.  Conjuncting the Moon, she is passionate, making us more honest than usual with our emotions and reactions, albeit potentially more fickle as well.  Fickle or not, this Moon/Venus combination can be brilliant, and we would do well to enjoy it.

Astrology of February 2nd, 2017: Big Talk

The majority of today’s astrological activity happens in the morning, starting off before sunrise as the Moon in Aries conjuncted Uranus in Aries, creating a fair degree of emotional and instinctual restlessness to unsettle us and either get us out of bed early or keep the night owls among us from getting to bed at all.  At the very least, we are likely to have tumultuous dreams…

This is followed by the Moon in Aries squaring Mercury in Capricorn, channeling that agitation into potential aggravation, as our bold and individualistic instincts bump up against our more practical mindsets and blunt communication.  There are likely to be a lot of grumpy bears succumbing to road rage this morning, so please be extra mindful if you are traveling, and it might be good to wait a bit before negotiating or signing any legal contracts.  Especially since the Moon in Aries opposes Jupiter a few minutes after squaring Mercury, and the two aspects combined may well prove to be enough to turn our luck against us this morning.

Even more so since the big astrological news of the day is Mercury squaring Jupiter about an hour later.  We’ve already been feeling the buildup to this over the past 24 hours and will feel the residual effects tomorrow as well.  Braggadocio is likely to be a problem today, as well as hyperbole and promising the Moon.  We would do well to be as aware as possible of Jupiter’s expansiveness and faith being at odds with our thoughts and communication, as the cognitive bombardment could be quite distracting and even disruptive, especially if we are not fully conscious of what is going on.  We may also experience communication in service to the status quo and authority that runs afoul of social responsibility and goodwill, as well as potentially difficult legal developments.  Whole lot of foot-in-mouth disease going around, and in the hair-trigger-tempered environment of the Aries Moon, our words could blow up in our faces with precious little warning.

For once, it’s actually Saturn saving the day as the Moon in Aries trines Saturn in Sagittarius toward mid-day.  Now we get Saturn’s stabilizing force asserting some needed boundaries in the midst of all of this over-the-top talk, and our emotions and instincts get some much-needed from our capacity for discipline and perseverance.  We may find ourselves in a much better position to go the extra mile as a result, while simultaneously dialing back our knee-jerk reactions at least enough to get things done.

That said, whatever we do get done had best be within the realm of daily routine and not starting anything new, as the Moon/Saturn trine starts a void-of-course period that lasts throughout the afternoon and into the evening.  This is, however, a great time for correcting errors, organizing our environments, ferreting out problems, and resolving discrepancies.  It’s not likely to be a good time for sharp and detailed thinking, though it may be a good time for activities requiring a good understanding of the bigger picture, emphasized by the Mercury/Jupiter square, even if that emphasis is a bit uncomfortable.

Speaking of discomfort, the Moon enters Taurus tonight and that is sure to send many of us in search of creature comforts to ease any distress resulting from today’s astrological activity.  We may also find ourselves moving more slowly, and with more of a concern for practicality in our reactions.  Those of us on diets need to be sure to find ways to make them pleasurable tonight or risk abruptly falling off of them, as Taurus is ruled by Venus and isn’t likely to be keen on self-deprivation right now, especially in the wake of so many emotionally and mentally challenging aspects today.  This is a good time to take time for self-care, enjoyment of good food, good company, and good art.  Taurus wants the finer things in life, and our instincts are likely to seek these out tonight, in whatever form is most enjoyable and easily obtained.

Of course, while the Taurean Bull doesn’t much like moving and would most likely rather enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation tonight, the Bull also is an unstoppable force when riled up, and given the amount of poking our emotions and instincts have endured today, we might find that instead of enjoying a nice quiet evening our inner Bull will go after the picadores and then the matador with a vengeance.  Especially if it’s a part of our karmic path to do so, as the Moon ends the day trining the North Node, creating a flow state between our instinctive reactions and the direction of our life’s purpose.  Taurus may be resistant to change, but once started is slow to stop, so if we’re already wound up we may take a while to settle down.  Once we do, however, we are likely to move ever more steadily toward our goals, even if tonight’s goals are all about getting some quality sleep before the next battle.  😉

Astrology of February 1st, 2017: Depth and Heart

Today’s astrological action gets off to a late start, with no significant aspects until this afternoon when the Moon in Aries sextiles the Sun in Aquarius.  The Moon in Aries is headstrong enough that it might be just as well not to throw too many other heavenly bodies in the mix, as Aries isn’t too keen on accepting outside influence or advice, instead wanting to go it alone, full of courage (or foolhardiness) and a pioneering spirit.  Our emotions and instincts may well have done some trailblazing this morning, but could just as easily have bruised a few egos along the way, so the Moon’s sextile to the Sun this afternoon is a helpful reminder of our more social inclinations, and may help us to put our heroic impulses in service of a greater cause.  

Later in the afternoon, Venus in Pisces trines Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio, pulling us back out of the wind and fire of Aquarius and Aries for a dip in the dark pool of our intuition.  This is a deeply sensual and knowing influence, when our affections and pleasures take a turn toward the intense, and we may well wonder what hit us.  We are likely to be drawn to the mysterious and the forbidden at this time, and are not likely to take kindly to anyone wishing to hold us back from what we desire.

With Mercury in Capricorn sextiling Chiron in Pisces, whatever the Venus/Black Moon Lilith trine has beckoned us toward is likely to stir up hidden pains, especially those connected to our affections and spiritual yearnings, but the Mercury/Chiron sextile gives us a tailor-made time to give deep thought to what we are feeling and learn from what insights we may discover, and if possible, now is the perfect time to share these feelings with someone we trust.  The combined wisdom and connection that we may gain from such confidences will be well-worth whatever pangs first stirred us to think and speak about them.

Which is a blessing, since the night does not end gently, but dives into a square between the Moon in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, intensifying our emotions in challenging ways.  We may find ourselves in the grip of fears about the larger forces in our lives, our government and other institutions that our current fiery instincts feel confined and oppressed by.  Our hearts are wild, young punks under this influence, railing against authority, while frightening and potentially abusive powers tighten their grip around us.  Our hearts may rage while our minds wonder what the hell is going on, or we may simply feel restless and deeply uneasy without really knowing the source of those feelings, but we should be mindful that they are a symptom of a larger process of transformation that clutches us all, and while tonight’s influence may be fleeting that larger process is something that we must find a way to face for the next several years.

For many of us, this will resurrect our personal demons from the time of the Pluto/Uranus squares that stretched from 2012 to 2015, a time that we hoped we’d left behind us.  This is just a small reverberation from that time, but it carries with it a warning for the future.  The Aries Moon wants us to be courageous, while Pluto in Capricorn brings us face-to-face with our deepest fears regarding our society and authority.  But real courage is not an absence of fear, but rather the willingness to go forward to meet that fear and whatever grim forces have inspired it, and bring some resolution to it whether by battle or by some kinder means.  Now is the time to face what we fear most, knowing our mortality and frailty and the strength of the forces arrayed against us, but not yielding to them without a damned good fight.

In the Pagan year, we have come to the time of Imbolc, a time of purification and testing, when nature determines what is strong enough to survive, and what is too weak to live through the remnants of winter until spring.  The Moon/Pluto square’s influence will pass with the night, but what we learn from it may well continue to hold sway into the future.  Since we are in the first quarter of the Moon now, the lessons that we learn at this time are part of the energy building toward the Full Moon, when whatever wishes we held at the New Moon come to their fullness and are released into the world.  Imbolc is a time sacred to Brigid, the goddess of inspiration and smithcraft, and we will need whatever tempering she bids us endure in facing our fears tonight to fight for our desires in the coming weeks and months, and bring them into reality, no matter the odds.
