The moon takes its first steps in fiery Aries this morning, marking the beginning of a new lunar cycle. You should be feeling emotionally refreshed and ready to take on the world. The energy here is great for starting new projects, so if you’ve been putting aside certain tasks, now is the time to pick them up and execute your plans.
This energy likes to move, so you’ll likely get a boost in your endurance now as well. Your desire for adventure is highlighted right now, which could lead to an impulsive excursion away from home. Humor your whims today, fleeting as they may be, and don’t be afraid to step out of your normal routine.
This evening, the moon cozies up to healing asteroid Chiron, and this aspect could go one of two ways. You might do a really great job putting someone else’s needs before your own, which could in turn leave you with the short end of the stick. Or you could finally give yourself permission to be a little bit selfish.
This is the time to think about what you want and then act on it. It might feel unnatural to be so self-serving, but we all need to take some time out for ourselves now and again. Just remember to be gentle with others when you’re letting them know it’s all about you right now!
There are whispers today of tomorrow’s New Moon (7:30 PM PDT 22° Aries) which will square Pluto — demanding a significant amount of awareness in order to avoid conflict. Today’s Venus-Jupiter sextile and the forming Venus-Pluto square highlights our desire for comfort. However, the expression of Venus in Aries is rather brash and unsophisticated and our ability to use charm and manipulation is hampered — leaving us looking rather self-serving. Free expression of our personal desires can feel unsatisfying. Manipulation is obvious and easily exposed. What’s left for us to use to get what we want is nothing but sheer optimism and the faith in a prospect of good fortune and great expectations. In fact, tomorrow’s New Moon does offer a significant amount of luck but there is also significant effort demanded if we are to hold on to that luck. The challenge of today and into the next lunar cycle is basically nothing less than to ‘let it all hang out’. Be honest about our hopes and desires, show our enthusiasm, and have faith that others will find our optimism appealing and infectious.
Positive thinking is essential right now. Your own obsessive, negative thoughts are the true culprits behind the trouble you fear. Release your guilt, and realize that regret is a wasted emotion. Turn your attention to the amazing possibilities for the future and leave the past behind.
If you’re having unpleasant dreams at this time, write them in a journal, bless them for their desire to inform you, and then send them to the angels. If depression is an issue, encourage those affected to seek professional counseling.
Additional meanings of this card: Sleeplessness. Racing thoughts. Expecting the worst. Self-fulfilling prophecies. Worry. Stress-related illness.
