REBIRTH. The New Moon in Aries signifies the start of a new astrological year, and a new beginning in our lives. It heralds the coming of Spring. Plants and bulbs are pushing their way out of the Earth and blooming, and the land is green. Normally this would be a celebratory and enjoyable time of the year, but the majority of us now sit sequestered in our homes. Disease is so rampant in our communities, that all gathering places are shut down and we can only go outside for food.
I believe our current worldwide crisis stems from the Saturn/Pluto conjunction on January 12th. It was a seminal event that has brought about worldwide upheaval and disruption in the past. When I became aware of this last year, I knew it would be something huge, but I had no idea it would sweep across the world, crash financial markets and shut down our society. Saturn rules limitation and restriction among other things, and Pluto brings catharsis and regeneration by purging toxic energy. Something toxic has indeed risen up from the depths of nature, and our disregard for the natural world has created it’s path.
Despite the grim news, we can still embrace the Aries New Moon and go through a rebirth. We can make use of this time to be creative. We can set an example for others by taking care of our health, and putting other people’s needs ahead of our own. We can try something new, and take a different approach to our lives. Listen to what the CDC is advising you to do and STAY HOME. Get informed and learn something new. Rediscover your spirituai practice and be creative. What are you ready to let go of, and what would you like your life to be?
I agree about the Saturn / Pluto conjunction. Isabel Hickey wrote a book called Pluto or Minerva, the Choice is yours … As such we have the choice to fear or to love in this time. Let us choose wisely. Be well, and be whole ! … gfs
