ARIES New MOON & New VENUS: Coeur-ageous New YOU Attracts Synergies!

27 Mar

The epic first Eclipse Season 2017 (Lunar Eclipse on Feb 10, Solar Eclipse with Neptune on Feb 26, pseudo Lunar Eclipse on March 12) – PISCES has been HUGE, and washed up a lot, to be released…. ahhhhh! …

And now for the first NEW MOON in SPRING – it all starts HERE!

So much NEW-ness, in the NOW-ness!

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS! Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – while blossoms surprise us daily. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, or in a long time. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES style).


Prometheus NYC

Liberating ‘Golden Boy’ Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt.. Prometheus the Awakener is the Uranus Archetype!


With MERCURY – URANUS (also came in on the weekend, together with the NEW VENUS, and the NEW MOON yesterday), rather than panicking: “You never know what comes next!” let’s ask ourselves and others: “What’s new and exciting?”.

Maybe the energy shows up as erratic, unpredictable, and volatile – that’s what URANUS in ARIES (2011 – 2018) can also be, to shake and wake us up. Yet also lots of windows for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues (PLUTO in CAP).

Let’s be open to paradigm shifts of the mind, which – you bet – MERCURY retro (technically on Apr 9 – May 3, but already ‘in the making’) will bring up anyway. In fact, MERCURY will meet ‘game changer’ and liberator URANUS again, for a longer phase during M-r, end of Apr until mid May!

And what’s with ‘sweet VENUS’ retro (March 4 – Apr 15), now also reNEWed, since ‘she’ met the ARIES SUN on Saturday?

More about the ‘NEW VENUS’ in this recent Astro*News blog post.
You are – on short notice – also welcome to join our ‘New VENUS’ Astro Parlour tomorrow Wed March 29 at 6:29 pm PDT!

The ‘NEW VENUS’ in ARIES is a fierce, raw, brave energy that ‘put its feelers out’, and shows up ‘naked’, as-is (LILITH freshly in SAG is her Spirit Sister). In ‘her’ renewed cycle, ‘she’ will go back into PISCES on Apr 2, for a close encounter with the shamanic CHIRON Archetype that shows wounds yet also offers intrinsic Medicine..
When it comes to ‘Love Wounds’ and PISCES we often have to feel it to heal it… the Piscean longing for connection can be very old – maybe an early bonding wound / abandonment? – and it’s very collective too. No ‘other’ (or escape into substances or addictive behaviour) can fulfill it.
How can we deeply connect in what IS, and never be ‘alone’, always ‘allONE’?!
So let’s be brave and gentle, with the VENUSian journey into Self, into What-IS. 

Let’s be a coeur-ageous ONE (in Latin languages it’s clearer how courage and heart = coeur, corazon, coracao are related), and connect in Heart Medicine.

From that place of wholeness (the North Node in VIRGO likes that too), we attract others who are of like vibration, also whole in themselves. A match made for true synergy.

Nature ‘does that’ all the time…
We humans just forget how to be fully ourselves…

This is to the Alchemy of the Heart!
What’s the first step?


What does the chart of the ARIES New Moon look like?

AR NM 2017

As you see, SO much FIRE, esp. ARIES:
VENUS retro, SUN, MOON, URANUS, and MERCURY! Game changer energy.
Begin the Begin – or not even that: BE here, and show up for what emerges!

And of course, also lots of Planets in Cardinal signs:
ARIES, JUPITER retro in LIBRA, and PLUTO (soon retro, now stationary) in CAP!
Let’s take initiative!
And show up (ARIES), be right relationship (which always starts from within – JUPITER retro in LIBRA), and let life ‘repurpose’ our capacities, so that they can thrive optimally, sustain us, and help build the NEW (PLUTO in CAP). Leadership rocks.


marsinlibraOn that note of Cardinal T-square (AR – LI – CAP):
A very significant transit pairing happens next week, March 30.
JUPITER in LI, presently retro, will square PLUTO in CAP (which is stationary / going retro on Apr 20). The JUPITER – PLUTO square happens (in the 13-year JU – PLU cycle we’re in) for the second time, first was Nov 24, now March 30, and again on Aug 4. A crisis (square) that calls for dynamic action. The closing square from LI to CAP has also a CAP undertone.

It’s about taking leadership and being in the Power (PLU) of natural authority (CAP) when it comes to fairness, justice, culture, right relationship – so important (JUPITER) and timely (CAP). The pressure is on for you if you have planets in round 20° AR, CAN, LI, or CAP.
Of course it’s also a societal pressure-to-change. Power figures and structures don’t get away with practices that are unfair, unjust, unconstitutional.


As you see in the chart, SATURN is now stationary (will go retro on Apr 6) in late SAG – the Galactic Centre the Big Unknown and Unknowable, the ‘Black Hole Transformation’ we are going through, with ultimate trust. That’s where the inner Spiritual Guidance comes in, and is being tested.
We are initiated (SATURN) into moving from the Spiritual Heart that knows and guides us. We will be changed in the process, and can’t know what it ‘looks like on the other side’ (the Ego doesn’t like that).
The path through, or actually with, it is the Path of Heart.



And what’s the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 7° 37′ AR?


Hat with Streamers

KEYNOTE: Protection and spiritual guidance in the development of consciousness.

This somewhat strange image can be understood if every stated feature in it is clearly analyzed without preconceptions. Here again we see a woman; but now her head is covered with a large hat – a protection against the forces of nature, i.e. cold and /or the penetrating rays of the sun. At this emotional-cultural level (Phases 6 through 10) the mental processes are still largely undeveloped) thus they need protection from the elemental forces of life. A too great openness to the Sky-energies and the “spiritual” level could lead to obsessions of one kind or another.

The symbolic image implies a rather strong wind, thus the activity of some more-than-material, and especially psychic, forces. These originated in the East, traditionally the seat of spiritualizing and creative-transforming influences. The woman’s hat has streamers, which enable it not only to respond to the wind but to indicate its source. In other words, the image symbolizes a stage of development of consciousness in which the nascent powers of the mind are both protected and influenced by energies of a spiritual origin. This suggests a probationary stage in the process of individualization. Under protective guidance a still most receptive person (a woman) is being influenced by spiritual forces.

This is a third stage symbol in which we see the first and second stages of this second five-fold sequence producing results which require PROTECTIVE FORMS (which is what a culture and ethical precepts provide) and SENSITIVITY to spiritual energies.”


Interesting phenomenon of being both protected and influenced by spiritual forces. An innocent stage of Being. The early (= double) ARIES New Moon is in Fire trine with LILITH in early SAG, with also an ARIES ‘undertone’. Life is an adventure. And when we move forward with natural trust we are often protected.

Wishing us all a safe and liberating journey, in any endeavour!
