Aries New Moon - Powerful Initiative

"Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done."

— Amelia Earhart

This week begins with an Aries New Moon on Sunday evening (7:30 PM PDT 22° Aries), offering tremendous potential and opportunity. This Spring Aries New Moon encourages powerful initiatives, courage and direct communication. On the surface, energy and optimism seem to flourish but we can not ignore the deeper energies surrounding this Aries New Moon. A Venus-Pluto square, which perfects within an hour of the New Moon, points to hidden agendas and secret desires that we may feel very strongly but have a great deal of difficulty expressing clearly and honestly. The Moon's follow-up square to Pluto and the forming Sun-Pluto square that builds throughout the week, keeps us dealing with challenging obstacles, power struggles, and a potential for periodic dips into fatalism and frustration. However, there is also powerful encouragement provided by the Sun's sextile to Jupiter and Mars. As well, a Mars-Jupiter trine feeds our enthusiasm and offers extra energy to overcome the challenges and obstacles. With a broader perspective, we may even recognize that some of the obstacles and slowdowns are actually gifts that give us time to recognize the need for adjustments and course corrections. Compromise is likely necessary this week. The strong presence of Jupiter may encourage us to allow our expectations to build too high. But Jupiter also offers a broader view, a philosophical perspective that can help us to maintain our optimism, even in the face of challenges and obstacles. Venus leaves brash Aries for her comfortable home in Taurus. There are moments this week where we need to recognize the difference between determination and stubbornness, especially during the Moon's transit through Taurus early in the week. The initiative of the New Moon demands that we stay open, honest, direct, and courageous. We lose our advantage when we lose faith and optimism, when we allow the challenges to send us towards fatalism, or distract us with meaningless power struggles. In this week's stirred up atmosphere, we may find ourselves feeling an ego-based need to prove something to others but only wind up losing the thread of our own vision in the process. We should not minimize or ignore this week's challenges. There are important messages about how to compromise that are found in those challenges. By acknowledging those messages without losing our optimism, we will find increasing strength to 'get to the other side' and emerge with a better understanding of how to achieve our goals or arrive at our desired destination.

Sunday's Aries New Moon provides the keynote for this week's powerful, initiatory energy. We may quickly find some challenges and obstacles to face by Monday when the Moon arrives in Taurus. We need adaptability, flexibility and resourcefulness in order to keep moving forward. There is some capacity for subtlety and finesse on Tuesday that helps us to smooth over or move past the challenges if we are able to stay open, honest, and direct. Venus arrives in Taurus on Wednesday and Mercury conjuncts Ceres, helping to further soften the impact of the challenges of the Sun's building square to Pluto. We will need to watch out for the tendency to try to overcome some kind of insignificant obstacle in order to try to prove something. Thursday's Sun-Jupiter sextile has us somewhat stirred up, indicating a potential for quickly expanding expectations that may not be realistic. Frustration is possible. Increased energy on Friday under the Mars-Jupiter trine may further increase unrealistic expectations along with frustration. Nonetheless, a steady course could offer some quite significant progress. The Moon arrives in Cancer on Saturday afternoon, which increases sensitivity significantly. However, we are helped by the Moon-Venus sextile on Saturday evening, which encourages pleasant social interactions.
