The new moon in Aries initiates us into the new season fresh off the back of the Equinox and the astrological new year. It brings with it energy and fire. It is important to use and distribute this energy wisely in our current global situation.
A lot of us are choosing to self isolate, and being in confined spaces with others with this fire could easily turn to anger, lashing out, blame games and frustration if it is not moved through the body and released in a constructive way. None of us want that, we don’t need that right now, let’s use this strength to rise together, not tear each other apart in self-centred haste.
Healthy emotional release is a self-care practice we all need to do more of so potent energy is not mis-guided, especially in times of high stress. Get it all out and go back to adulting and actioning towards what we do want. Start something new.
When we action something from inspiration, openness and excitement, it is like planting a seed in potent, prime soil. When we action something out of fear or anger, it is like planting in soil of poor quality. Both may grow, but the fruits that bear in the future can be in abundance, juicy and delicious, or produce small and bitter crops. Your choice.
We are very creative, magical beings, and what we put our attention on, and intention into, has the capacity to create great change in our lives and the lives of others. Pay attention to what motivates our actions.
This new moon with Venus as our release point trining the Jupiter/Pluto/Mars conjunction (wow) it is a powerful time to get in touch with what you want through feeling it in areas of the body, particularly the heart and particularly pleasure. Does it open and relax? Is it a full yes? Or does it contract? Is it a no or maybe. If it is not a yes, it is not a yes.
If it is a yes, get behind it, back yourself, get inspired and action something towards it. Even if it is one small step - do what you can. Power towards it with full confidence. Be the leader of your own life. This is not the time to be timid about what you want your future to look like. It may be challenging at the moment but no excuses. Get up and go.
If you are feeling flat and overwhelmed, get up, run on the spot, skip, hop, jump, dance, get the heart pumping, blood flowing and heat moving in the body. Release emotions, turn up the music, scream, swear, punch pillows, just move and light that fire. Then gather your self together and be the king/queen/god/goddess/leader/whatever-you-want-to-call-it of your own reality.
If you have too much energy, anger or frustration, do the same, move it out. But be aware if you need to introduce some of the water element by getting in touch with how you are really feeling and how that is currently serving you. Empathy and feeling others is medicine for moving out of self-centredness. There is a great emotions chart here
It’s not about what the outside circumstances are, it's how we deal with them. How do we want to tell this story of what role we played right now to our children or grandchildren in the future? Our social system and structures are changing, read more about Saturn’s move into Aquarius here
Our external world is also shaped by our internal worlds. Yes, we are all aware many things need to change. Currently we are not set up globally to deal with a pandemic on this scale as well as look after the vulnerable. Jobs are being lost, small business halts, the market is crashing, people are hoarding, people are dying, it’s a challenging time! But it’s not a complete failure.
There is always hope. There always will be hope, because people like you are doing their best and constantly trying harder to do better. And that has to start with ‘I’, I AM. Definitive from the Pisces dream womb of the ‘all'.
Initiate self-love, self-leadership, fuck the victimising and be a fucking good version of yourself. You can do it. That is my Aries rising speaking.
Much love, stay well, keep marking art, serenade from balconies and work together.
We are literally ALL in this together, as an entire globe, think about that for a moment... that is POWERFUL.
How do we want this story to play out?
A new astrological year is upon us, which means we have entered a new season. In the Northern hemisphere we are celebrating the arrival of spring while those of you in the southern hemisphere are welcoming the beginning of autumn. Nonetheless we are all graced with the radiating light waves of the constellation Aries until April 19th. The 4th card in the tarot is represented by The Emperor and is associated with the purest form of fiery Aries. we are in an Emperor 4 year and the first new moon lands at 4° in Aries. The number 4 is a strong, stable, and very powerful number that holds within it a sense of responsibility to others. Force, might, strength and power are key phrases for this New Moon cycle. We are met with a masculine force, a force that everyone whether Male, Female or non-binary has within. The balance between the masculine and feminine within each and every one of us is our own personal experience. During this time, we get a chance to check in with that masculine part of ourselves by meditating on the Emperor, the Ram and how their archetypal energy is reflected through our unique selves.
