Reignite your passion for life, for love!
New Moon in Aries at 7 degrees, 27/28th March 2017
The New Moon and Sun in the fire sign of Aries are conjoined to Venus, illuminating all matters of our heart and our desires. The Sun reignites our passion for love and for life.
It is the high point of the current Venus retrograde cycle and a re-birthing of the heart.
All themes related to Venus, currently in retrograde, will become intensified.
In Aries, we will feel deeply impassioned about what we love, what we desire, what we want and don’t want.
Venus represents our desires and the Sun our conscious wants and needs. Conjoined together we will KNOW what we want and desire. We will know what’s worth fighting for and feeling passionate about.
This New Moon takes place shortly after the Spring Equinox, marking the beginning of the new astrological year. The ending of a year-long cycle and a time of initiating new beginnings with positive new enthusiasm, drive and passion.
Passion is the fuel of the soul.
Mercury, the planet of communication and rational thinking, is conjoined to the revolutionary Planet of Uranus in Aries. This can give us sudden illuminating insights, which can feel like the switch suddenly being flipped on, as well as the match igniting the flame. Resulting for some, in sudden and possibly shocking or unexpected decision making. Or we could just as well be on the receiving end. Mercury in a tense aspect to Jupiter and Pluto can lead to power struggles as we try to push through our point of view.
Uranus awakens everything it touches, it’s as if a light switch is turned on, one you didn’t even know was there. Sudden, abrupt, and immediate and without warning .A wake-up call.
If you are currently undecided about a relationship or a creative, financial or business venture, you may well suddenly know the right answer and the right decision to make.
The New Moon in Aries points towards the pathway of your growth and individuation. It means you won’t be satisfied until you have truly tasted the freedom to be yourself.
We are being reminded of our own special uniqueness.
Now more than ever, there will be an urge to question who you really want to be, are you living by your code, or are you just following the rigid structures that have been put in place by your parents, culture and society?
And even by your own worn out beliefs and expectations of yourself, or who you think you should be?
Uranus has the ultimate mission of promoting higher self-awareness.
Uranus awakens your need for freedom; with Mercury conjoined to Uranus , the freedom you need comes in the form of self-expression.
The New Moon in Aries gives us focus and independent direction.With so much vibrating energy, we need to be able to direct energy toward goals and activities that excite us, without being held back by worries over what others will think of you.
Failing to do so might mean a lot of nervous energy, expressed as erratic behaviour that disrupt (rather than energise) others.
Once you find your passionate interest and give yourself permission to pursue it, there is much potential for brilliance…Even genius. Finally enabling you to take the needed steps to put your new life into action.
Our own needs are very much at the forefront, as Aries teaches us how a healthy ego and self-love must be at the core of all things, as this is the Hero’s journey. Courageously pioneering the way ahead with fresh new beginnings and a renewed lust for life
Aries symbolise the quest to express individuality, to assert willpower, and to create vitality for initiating new cycles of experience.
The fire sign of Aries is the archetype of the Warrior hero taking action. With the Sun in Aries, we become activated to overcome challenges and to initiate the new, through courage, enthusiasm and leadership.
Destiny welcomes initiative and free will. It is our greatest gift if used correctly. The word courage comes from the root “cour” which means heart, centre, or core.
Courage manifests when you fear the path ahead, but take the first step anyway, seizing the moment to pioneer vigorously into new frontiers of consciousness and living. Aries calls us to act in line with our highest ideals.
Venus in Aries has an impulsive, passionate, extrovert and bold romantic nature. Here she is direct, open, and honest.
Aries can show us how to have a healthy ego as opposed to a false ego. One that is built on our inner truth, is authentic and without fear to walk our talk. One based on our true core self. Only then can we develop our full potential.
In the sign of Aries, we will be more focused on our own needs and how to get them met. We will feel a need to speak our truth and have a desire for more excitement, freedom, independence and adventure. Issues may arise about how we can integrate those needs into our relationship.
Relationships that don’t support freedom and growth, but keep the status quo at all costs out of fear, will be under critical review now.
Jupiter in Libra is supporting our relationships to step up to a new paradigm to a more evolved and conscious level of relating. Based on more emotional maturity and honesty instead of unhealthy dependencies.
Jupiter in Libra in opposition to Mercury is expanding our wisdom and intelligence of the heart.
The wisdom of the heart is really…the connection to your authentic power, to that source of realness and genuineness that you have inside.-Howard Martin
