The first New Moon of the New Year is here.
The Zodiac begins with Aries heading the way and this New Moon is the first in the yearly cycle.
Take this time to celebrate this 'new' energy.
I've never understood how exactly January, where frozen, stormy death is all too forceful, could denote new beginnings. January is the space of the dying Crone and her destruction of all before the newness of Spring's rebirth!
There's fire in us all and this New Moon in Aries is the spark to set the flames ablaze!!! Will your fire blaze you new trails, set souls on fire and fuel passions brighter than the Sun? Or will you combust in the sheer force of it all?
Are you utilizing your stores of energy to advance yourself in a positive light that can be shared, working to build bridges and to open doors or are you using it all for selfish, self-serving wants that will leave you burned out from the lot and alone, charred and cancerous?
Your personal integrity is in question with yourself and no one else. Can you stare into the mirrors of your eyes without shame and with great passion and purpose? Or do you need to regain your sense of self-trust and honesty?
There is a dance that we should always do to keep balance and that dance performs the pattern of figure eights. A constant flow of giving and receiving to keep balance and integrity. This is how each of our relationships should be balanced, including the relationship we share with ourselves.
Venus is walking hand in hand with Sun and Moon to wake up bits and pieces of you that may have been dormant for so very long. You may find that you suddenly feel a surge of your own passions, desires and sexual appeal in this time. Embrace it! It's up to you what you do with what's being offered to you at this time.
For me, personally, my Aries is at home in Mars. My passions and courage are well-stoked fires that never die out, no matter how much others may attempt to extinguish them. No matter how many ways I've attempted to self-sabotage and extinguish them myself. I face things head-on in ways that make others uncomfortable. I don't see a way around in avoidance, I see a way through it all. No dodging objects, just direct results from knowing that as I pull back my bow, the arrow I release with hit its mark, every single time.
As well, what you see is what you get. Aries doesn't know how to be anything other than exactly who they are....there is no hiding and they are not ashamed to be, so they aren't, much to others chagrin. And the issue lies in the fact that others are not ready with their own courage and bravery to do the same. Using the energies of the Aries New Moon in this time will be helpful, if you are ready to stop pretending and faking it by just 'getting by', in this life. Time to take the reins and go!
Trust in self. Love for self that makes it so much easier to have a love for others. For therein lies the rub: If you have no true love of self, you can never love another the way they deserve to be loved and that would mean that you will never know love truly. It can be seen daily in those lacking such self-love and respect in the way people are with others.
We all have the ability in these times to break ourselves free from the bondage that holds us back from living a life, true to our most authentic selves. It's time and you don't need to ask permission to be who you were meant to be! You just need to own it, embrace it and love it to bits!
Where is your placement for Aries? How does it guide you?
For many years I have trusted others interpretations of the planetary movements. It's only been the last year that I have taken to understanding and much more recently, sharing my own interpretations in this way. We are each on our own path and sooner or later, I believe we all have the opportunity to get here, to this point where we can see the writings on the walls for ourselves, without the guides and translators nipping at our heels. I am however still learning and none of what I am sharing is exact, just my take on it all.
Happy New Moon in Aries!
Fire in the head, my friends, fire in the soul.
Fire's leaping flames of love, wherever we may go!
