Mars is making a harmonious sextile to Chiron this week. If you have been wanting to move forward in your life but have been dealing with a nagging insecurity or if you have been dragging your feet to face an old or habitual obstacle in your path, Mars will support and lend courage and determination to any initiatives of this nature now.
Friday’s fiery New Moon at 15 degrees of Aries has a lot of power to support and help actualize strong intentions, given one caveat. The Sun and the Moon in Aries will be squaring Saturn, Pluto and the Nodes of the Moon. This indicates a karmic threshold of sorts and to activate this energy favorably it bodes well to be willing to let go of perhaps longstanding beliefs or assumptions from the past that hinder your forward movement and are no longer necessary. Make space for new perspectives or a new orientation with Mars now in Gemini. This placement can help considerably with considering things from differing perspectives.
The Sabian symbol for this New Moon is, “Brightly clad brownies dancing in the warm dancing light.”
