New Moon in Aries

img_0536

Aries New Moon at 6:57pm Pacific.

Every year, the New Moon in Aries starts an entirely new astrological cycle for the upcoming twelve months.  This is because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and the New Moon sparks off new beginnings. Today is a significant day. What would you like to develop this year? What do you want to grow in your life? Today we plant the seeds.

Every new idea or direction starts with a spark of inspiration that activates an individual’s nature. What are you drawn towards? Aries is the spark. It’s the first sign of the zodiac, as well as the first fire sign, and the Sun always transits Aries in the Spring. Fire is the only element that’s a reaction between two elements – it’s not tangible. Fire heats things up, consumes all it touches and spreads quickly. When fire touches the human spirit, we become motivated, inspired and productive. We lead the pack, but we’re also not afraid to stand alone. We become pioneers and explore the fringes of society. We tackle our challenges with a wellspring of drive and energy.

From Empowering Astrology:

“The Aries New Moon is conjunct — astrology speak for in the same position — the planet Uranus. Now, Uranus has been in Aries since 2010-2011, kicking off revolutions both personal and global. We’ve had to start over more than a few times. We’ve had breakthroughs. We’ve had our thinking altered, our consciousness awakened. We’re very different people than we were seven years ago.

This new moon, in many ways, represents a culmination of our work during Uranus’s journey through Aries. Meaning, whatever changes kicked off in 2011, whatever revolutions began, will have their denouement during this lunar month. In short, what you started working toward in 2011 will come to a climax in the coming four weeks. Are you ready for the big reveal?

Even more, the new moon points its energy over to Mars in Capricorn, a sign that injects seriousness and responsibility into the mix. And thank goodness for Capricorn because it’s a sign that’s a bit slow-and-steady-wins-the-race versus Aries’s impulsiveness. Further, Mars is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, so while we may be pumping the breaks with this new moon, it’s Pluto that’s creating a very hard boundary.
When we put this together, this lunar month will be seeded with powerful new beginnings, one that may draw a line between an old life and a new life. We may feel a rebirth, a transformation from the proverbial fire. We may feel restless and motivated to make a change. Although unpredictable, Uranus has a tendency to show us what’s holding us back and demand we let it go.

Mercury also turns direct on the day of the new moon, adding to an unsteady energy. Information may pour out as a result. Plus, that Mars-Pluto combo has a tendency to be volcanic, pulling up emotions and releasing suppressed energy. If we’re looking for a do over, this is our new moon.
Some tips for working with the energy of this new moon. Again, exercise is your friend this lunar month. Of course, be very aware of your body lest you create an injury. Second, fire needs air, so make sure you’re breathing long deep breaths. Lastly, challenge your thinking of yourself or how you see the world. Try something new, especially if it’s out of your comfort zone.
Another thing to be aware of is that Aries, in its negative expression, has a tendency to be argumentative and aggressive. You may be itching for a fight. You may have a bout of road rage. Try not to burn everything down with this new moon; instead, taking time to meditate or go for a walk. Mars, thankfully has support from Neptune, reminding us to channel the higher expression of Mars — positive breakthroughs and transformation.
Note that Uranus will leave Aries for Taurus on May 15. We’re in the homestretch of a powerful seven year journey to discover our real selves.

 

From Ronnie Pontiac:

In April Chiron will leave Pisces and enter Aries. Most astrologers describe Chiron as the wounded healer. It’s place in our charts is said to indicate our deepest wounds. But Chiron also involves teaching and mentorship, including guidance of the next generation.

Chiron is completing its circuit around the zodiac. Chiron in Pisces suggests wounds caused by religion or by lack of spirituality. A crisis of faith, pervasive cultural rigidity as traditions dissolve, widespread confusion, and nostalgia for the past can make Chiron in Pisces feel like end times.
But the real end time is Chiron in Aries as a new cultural cycle begins. Real hippies will squint at those years 1968 to 1976 because they brought Altamont, glitter rock and disco. The new generation arrives and in some way that generation inaugurates everything that comes after them. The sometimes reckless idealism of the hippies was the end of a forty year cycle, the cynicism of their younger sibs was the beginning of the next. That cycle is now ending.
In April as Chiron enters Aries until 2027, with a couple of backslides into Pisces at first, we can expect breakthroughs in healing, in underground culture, in education. Aries is war and it is possible that Chiron brings the painful catharsis of war. After all, Chiron was a mentor to Achilles the most famous killer in history. But it is also possible that at long last the wounds that cause war receive the attention they need. How health and education are done in our world will be changing more than many of us can imagine.
For each of us this is a good time to survey our history with healing, teaching, and being taught. Come April embrace new methods, new information, new expectations in these areas. Aries sun, moon, or asc people expect major healing ahead. Pisces people hopefully you’ve healed some of those deep wounds since 2010. You won’t be feeling like the crisis is happening in your waters much longer. A question for all of us: what can you appreciate about what Chiron in Pisces has taught you?

The importance of integrity

18118882_1736993819923968_5997707982692340208_n

Make an effort to be a person of character.  From my experience, I’ve found it’s the best thing you can do for yourself in your life.

Taking firm responsibility for yourself and your choices will set you apart from the crowd, and along with hard work, will bring you anything you want.

I was at a conference of female musicians once, and had the good fortune to hear Patti Smith reviewing her life and career. The most important thing in life, she said, is your credibility. If you lack credibility with people, or lose it, it’s hard to get it back. It’s the foundation of moving forward in life and finding true fulfillment and lasting friendships.

A friend posted this article today and I have to share it with you! These are traits I aspire to in my own life.

13 Traits of People With True Integrity

Integrity, for those who are not familiar, is quite important. It is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
People who have a strong sense of integrity are sadly a rare breed. However, there are still some people left in this world with integrity, and usually, they share the following 13 traits.

1. They value other people’s time.
They value their own time so they also value the time of other people. They know you have plenty of other places you need to be and won’t hold you up. If you spend time with them, it is likely they will thank you for that as well.

2. They give credit where it is due.
They do not take credit for things they did not do. They will always credit those who deserve it. If you help this person with a project he or she will likely mention your name so you can take credit for your work.

3. They are authentic.
They are their truest forms. You won’t catch them in a lie or being fake.

4. They are always honest.
They are honest people that feel no need to lie as it is important for them to get to where they need to get in life honestly.

5. They never take advantage of others.
They are not the kind of people who will take advantage of someone else. They love to build people up and help them get where they need to be. Taking too much from someone else will never be an issue with someone who has a lot of integrity.

6. They do not argue over disagreements.
They will talk through things in a civil manner or not talk at all. You cannot and will not force this person into arguing over something completely ridiculous. I find this to be a very respectable trait.

7. They give most people the benefit of the doubt.
They try to see the good in everyone. I think this is because they feel like maybe there are more people in this world that also have integrity. That being said, if you take advantage of them too much they will get rid of you.

8. They know when something is bothering someone.
They have a great intuition that lets them know when something is going on. If someone is down in the dumps they will notice. Chances are they will actually do what they can to cheer you up.

9. They believe others.
They accept your word as truth until it is disproven. That being said, they do not take lying well. And once you lie to them, it is unlikely that they will ever take your word again.

10. They apologize first.
If they have done something wrong they will come to you and apologize. This is just how they are. They own up to their mistake and try to make things right.

11. They are humble.
They do not quite know their own worth. While they are very important and do so much good they don’t quite see it. You should remind them of it.

12. They do good when they can.
They are always helping other people. They love to know that they have improved someone’s life. It gives their lives meaning.

13. They are always kind to those who need it.
Giving kindness can go a long way. When someone looks like they need a little pick me up these people deliver. They can brighten up almost anyone’s day.

If you are someone who has true integrity, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all that you do. You really do actually make a difference in society, please keep up the good work. If you feel no one else is proud of you, know that I am.

I learned that who doesn’t look for you, doesn’t miss you.
And who doesn’t miss you doesn’t care for you…
Destiny determines who enters your life but YOU decide who stays…
Therefore, value whoever values you, and don’t treat someone as a priority if they treat you as an option.
