“This Aries New Moon is the first new Moon of the astrological year. And it’s a big one!
This is the time to plant the seeds of rebirth and renewal for this coming year, seeds that will take you into your future.
What’s different about this Aries New Moon? It is cradled between the asteroid Eris, Goddess of Discord and the planet Uranus, sky god of freedom, revolution and sudden changes.
Add to this the fact that Mercury ends its retrograde earlier in the day and we can see that a new mind-set, a new perspective is waiting to be born within us, and hopefully within our society.
As you look at the news (ruled by Mercury), for every attempt to turn the clock back on freedom, equality and environmental protections, you can see people rising up everywhere to stand against the regressive pull of old patriarchal thinking.
We are in the ‘hero’s journey’ part of the Uranus/Pluto cycle where we have to overcome obstacles to make sure the new seeds of revolution and evolution planted in the 60s get stronger and spread their roots deeper in our collective consciousness.
More people are waking up to the fact that we have to be citizens rather than consumers, that we have to be stewards of the Earth rather than users, and that democracy demands an awakened citizenry….
As you can see, most of the planets fall in the solar 1st and 10th houses. The first house is our self-identity while the tenth house deals with how we contribute to our society.
That’s the message of this new creation story. As JFK once said, ‘Ask not what your country/world can do for you. Rather, ask what you can do for your country/world.’
With Uranus in its final connection to an Aries New Moon for the next 84 years, plant seeds for the unexpected! Plant seeds for inner revolution and freedom.”
