The Aries New Moon, which is conjunct both Uranus and the asteroid Eris and square Pluto in Capricorn occurs on April 7 at 4:23am PDT
I’m reminded right now of something Barbara Hand Clow, an astrologer I followed in the late nineties, said about the anger and disillusionment Americans would experience when they realized they had been lied to by their government about their freedoms and the way things worked. I thought this would happen in 2012, but it seems to be happening now in 2016 which is what others had predicted. As we watch the drama of the upcoming election, I hear more and more people saying “You mean our primary votes don’t really determine which candidate will run in the Presidential Election? In the end, it’s the party who decides who will run? They can discard the people’s voice after the first ballet? ”
It has always been so, we’re just paying more attention now. There has always been corruption in our political system. Each state has their own set of rules and restrictions that control who can run in an election, primary votes, presidential elections. Voting machines can be hacked, results can be flipped. Are we really a Democracy as we have been told, or have we been fooled into thinking so? Cathy Pagano speaks to how astrology is assisting us to”wake up” to the truth and to take action. This is the time to take back our power! Blessings ~Mary
“This New Moon, a Super Moon, will be intense, for it incorporates the evolutionary and revolutionary energies of the Pluto/Uranus square that’s been shaking up our world for the past 4 years. This is a cosmic story of deep changes occurring within our personal and collective psyches.
We are witnessing the death knoll of patriarchy and we have to take this moment to do our part in creating the People’s New World Order – not the corporate new world order. We do that by honoring and keeping the true wisdom of our past while envisioning the future when our species acts as responsible co-creators of the Earth and the Cosmos.
All cultures have to die to accommodate new social conditions if they want to remain viable. As we all know, political change has to come from the bottom up. All political changes in the world come from the people: parents, workers, women and men, people of color, people newly arrived, our young ones—we all need to demand those changes. We’ve all seen the cultural corruption that the Pluto transit through Capricorn has uncovered. This is part of the natural cycles of life.
This is the moment to bring our spiritual awareness back into the world and help birth a truly free, healthy, just, balanced, co-created world with our Mother Earth. As a species, we’ve let ourselves be lulled to sleep by consumerism and as a result, we’re destroying our own home. But we’ve been given our mission, if we will accept it. It’s time to create that Earthly paradise we all know is possible. Why else are so many people becoming conscious at this moment in history?
It’s time for our species to evolve. It won’t happen overnight, and some/most of us might not see it fully realized, but this is the defining moment for our future. We are the grandmothers and grandfathers of the future.” Wisdom of Astrology
And from Kelly Rosano around fear of the Unknown.
This is an intense New Moon. It is your fresh start to this year. Aries is pure positive energy. The Sun (will) and Moon (emotions) unite to seed your next thirty-day cycle. Aries being your first zodiac sign empowers you to be bold and courageous. This is the energy to blaze a new life path. This New Moon holds the promise of new beginnings. What are you creating? What gives you passion? What makes you feel alive?
You do not have to know how the future will work out to move forward. You are being asked to have courage. You are to have faith and trust. You may begin a new life. You may start a new career. You could start a new business. A new relationship could open your heart. These can be better than your wildest imagination. Be open. Be flexible.
The ego goes into fear because it cannot control what is happening. Control is an illusion. The only thing you can control is your response to what is happening. The ego is going into fear because you have never been here before. You are charting new territory. So, when the ego pulls up past occurrences that are fear based to understand your current experience. This too is an illusion. The past does not equal the future. In other words, you cannot define what is happening now from what has occurred in your past. You are creating the future by the choices you make today. Will you choose love or fear?
When the ego thrusts you into fear, ask yourself, “What evidence do I have to confirm my assumptions?” Your power is in the present. The future will take care of itself. The past is history. It is time to be brave. Ask, yourself, “What would I do if I was not afraid?” Do what empowers you. Be Brave. Without risk, there can be no reward. Try. Make mistakes. This is how you learn.
Use this powerful energy in physical pursuits. Projects that give you passion. What needs to change for you? Where do you need to move on? What is blocking your creativity? What is in the way of your progress? Stop arguing for your limitations. You can take action now. On the other hand, you can come back and play this drama out again. You have Free Will. You are always at choice.
The truth is you do have time to wait until summer to start new things. Trust your intuition. Trust your instincts. What are they telling you to do? What is God telling you to do? What is the Will of God for You? Align yourself with God’s Will for you and your life will be better.
