April 18, 2015
After very difficult eclipse energies some of us are still suffering. The eclipse on March 20, 2015, brought new beginnings to spirituality and thinking of what needs to be evaluated (read about it here). Additionally, the lunar eclipse on April 04, 2015, brought forth volatile energy with some relationships coming to a better understanding while others parted ways (read about it here).
Energy will soon settle down; just in time for flowers to bloom and birds to sing. Venus entered chattery Gemini on April 07. Gemini’s often change their minds but they love to talk research and have rhetorical conversations. I would not be surprised if many people make plutonic friendships that may last for a long time – and it does not matter if it is with the same sex or opposite. But be careful, you may become fickle minded. However, Mars is in the sign of stubborn Taurus, which could mean that many of us can be stubborn and because we are, confused if we should get into a relationship and sacrifice our time or stay in a friendship to foster and have fun.
The void of the moon creating a new moon in Aries will be on April 18, 2015. The darkness will cast upon our skies at 2:57pm EST and 11:57am PST. Even though it will not be noticed it will impact all those that have Aries as their sun sign at later degrees and those that have Aries in their chart. Its position will be at 28 degrees in Aries depending upon the orb.
Two weeks ago, the Spring Equinox ushered a time to begin new projects. Aries energy and the spring equinox will force us to look at things that do not work and discard them if they are not working in your life. Nearly all astrological signs are going through difficulties, except Leo’s who are sitting pretty with Jupiter going direct in their signs as of April 8, 2015 and will go retrograde in Leo on July 18, 2015.
The new moon gives us the initiative to think of new things and put them into action. The energy is influential enough to give the motivations that the right choices will be the correct passageway. Small modifications will lead to larger changes and taking risks. It is a time for manifestation, planting seeds, and making plans.
When the moon is in Aries there is no time to contemplate – act now, making sure our necessities are met. Aries’ yearn lust and passion. Their needs for freedom, self-assurance, and dispositions becomes the number one factor in their transformation. There is a need to take control of responsive situations which leads to finding resolutions to difficult problems right away. Due to the nature of Aries individuality is collective. A motherly figure will help portray independence through discovering one’s self with high energy.
The Moon in Aries marks a time of increased accomplishment and ambition. People may feel more fervent and be more energetic. This is a good time to begin new projects or to try to apply favored change. Like the charging Ram that represents Aries, people may be motivated to dash robustly and impulsively without bearing in mind the consequences to both themselves and others. Caution needs to be taken to avoid egotism and fiery behavior. The Blazing Aries Moon brings enthusiasm to our emotions, instant feed backs, and courage in the face of any adversary! Give in to the energy… endeavor for new beginnings.
Since the moon in Aries represents imprudence, tenacity, hot-temperateness, braveness, and dynamic behavior, it is my suggestion for us to remain neutral. This moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil and sandalwood oil, and chant Psalm 39.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Make sure you focus on your needs rather than your wants, as the dedicated healing only occurs on a selfless view:
“Om Suryaya Namaha”
(Om sur-va-ya Na-ma-ha)
For Hindu practitioners, this kind of energy can be very unsettling and could cause anger between you and someone that you care for. Therefore, I am suggesting an additional mantra to get through the intensity and get to the other side.
Om Shante Prashante Sarva Mahna Upsha Mani Swaha
(Om Sha nte Pra shan te Sar Va Mah na Up Sha Ma ni Swa ha)
This mantra is the dis-speller of incomprehensibility and illiteracy.
The intention of this mantra is to keep us in balance and from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is the slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.
This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations begin with “I can”, it must be worded “I can be any one I want to be”
Affirmations for the energy of the New Moon in Aries
I use my narrow-mindedness and rage helpfully … to make productive modifications in my life.
I esteem the stimulus behind my hungers and cravings … and use this influence sensibly.
I use my self-assertion to build, control, and uphold the conditions I want in my life.
I offer brave, optimistic leadership to myself and others with my selections and methods.
With joy and gratitude, I takeoff my imagination …to initiate the vital foundations and projects of my life.
This new moon will tug heart and spirit carrying optimism and healing; however, it is also action-oriented. It prompts values in our lives to start something fresh, perhaps a new venture or a new relationship (or bring back an old one) – or is it that you want your individual autonomy now? It is about reinventing and reconsidering; allow yourself to let the past go and be excited about what is yet to come.
To really understand this energy, the new moon was at this exact degree on April 19, 2004. This energy will be back at the exact degree again April 20, 2023 (in 8 years) the infinite number.
It is time to let go of the ways that were not working and release toxic relationships that no longer work by committed compassion and moving on. This new moon brings forth those matters while coming to terms with harsh truths and release because this is one of those things that continues to hold you back.
Please note that I am not an astrologer, rather, I am a Vedic reader and astrological venues are the groundwork utilities that enhance Vedic reading. It is my recommendation that after you have spoken to me, you contact my recommended astrologers: Leslie Hale or Xtrology or my recommended advisers for the best advice possible during Saturn, Mars, and Mercury retrograde and how it will affect you.
Remember, Astrology tells you what could happen and Vedic readings give direction to what you can do about it. Vedic readings will NOT tell you what to do; rather, they tell you the forks ahead to enable you to make the best decision which is honorable to all.
Wishing you all the best of this wonderful spring season. Enjoy your time because within 3 weeks the trickster is coming to poke you again.
