The Aries new Moon is quite an explosive, passionate and deeply intense one with some very interesting themes that can ignite, inspire and feed our impulses while, at the same time, teach us some interesting things about our selves and our lives and what it means to be human. Occurring on April 3 in the United States and April 4 in Australia, it's one heck of a doozy of an Aries new Moon with Mars, Lilith, Uranus, the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and Mercury all in Aries.
The full Moon falls on Wednesday March 27. It's a very powerful full Moon and there's bound to be some shifts on many levels and in many ways. The Sabian Symbol is Libra 7: A Woman Feeding Chickens And Protecting Them From The Hawks.
July's Capricorn full Moon falls on July 3. These feel like momentous times; Venus has gone direct (moving forward) after 40 days (and 40 nights) of being retrograde, Mars has finally, after what seemed to be forever, left Virgo after a very long retrograde and sojourn in that sign, Saturn has also gone direct, and we've had the first of the Uranus/Pluto squares. So it feels momentous alright and there's a lot of energy flying around and many people are picking it up.
This full Moon is likely to be very transformational for many people. A standout aspect to me is one of healing as Jupiter, the Moon's node and Chiron are in a lovely grand trine and Venus is just passing by the Super Galactic Center and on a fantastic degree.
I am a little later than usual with this new Moon posting. Please do remember that the effects of the new Moon last into the future - it's not all over with a bang the minute the new Moon (or the full Moon for that matter) occurs.
This has been a particularly Uranian time that we've been experiencing for some months. The energy has been electric, confused, pushy and yet slow, somehow organised and then somehow deranged, and, generally, all over the shop (especially so with Mars retrograde in Virgo since January 25).
