New Moon in Aries

“The only limits are, as always, vision.” James Broughton

One of the Sabian symbols associated with Sunday’s New Moon at 9 degrees of Aries is, “A seer gazes intently into a crystal ball before him.” New Moons are a good time to set crystal clear intentions and as writer and astrosopher David Tresemer once said, “Intention is shown by the specificity of your attention.” Remember to back yourself up as times moves forward.

This New Moon is a very powerful time for new starts and for intentions originating from a point of singular focus – i.e. no room for doubt. Pythagoras – known mainly in our time for his Pythagorean Theory – was actually a mystic, educated in Mystery Schools who understood the metaphysical meaning behind numbers. An important part of his philosophy was to “always remember the one,” the underlying unity that is the origin of all things. In our time there is an emphasis on the overuse of the conscious mind which can cause a stalemate or stress from lingering too long in duality.

This New Moon pulls in the energy of the Cardinal Cross of late April – a very volatile and powerful configuration whose power can be harnessed to create great change. Leave unnecessary baggage behind. Question when you judge yourself harshly if the judgments originate with what you believe or whether they are the result of outgrown influences by family, patriarchy, religion or culture.
As always when there is significant Uranus involvement it is best to, “expect the unexpected” to replenish the nervous system and to provide extra down time. The meaning of sudden or surprising events will best be understood over time rather than in the present.
