New Moon in Aries

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

This embodies the Aries trail blazing energy, embracing the new with courage and confidence.

We have the New Moon in Aries (a New Moon is the exact moment when the Sun and the Moon appear to come together against the same backdrop of stars, in this case the twelve constellations), and on Saturday, April 18, 2015 this will occur at 11:57 am PDT, 3:57 pm EDT. The Vernal Equinox or the advent of Spring begins when the Sun enters Aries, which it did on March 20, 2015. When the Moon joins it there, greater focus and purpose can manifest. Aries is the first of the twelve constellations and invites us to create new pathways in our lives, to be spontaneous and step outside our comfort zones. You have all weekend to write your wish lists and remember, Aries is the first sign, so think deeply about what you truly want to manifest that is indeed new and will require courage, perhaps some risk-taking, and always a positive attitude!

For any further information on this New Moon and the upcoming astrological patterns, sign up for my New Moon lecture and Meditation on this coming Sunday, April 19, 2015 beginning at 4pm PDT. You may also order the link to be emailed to you, and mini-readings are also available in person or over the phone!

Mercury Retrograde, November 6-26, 2012

We entered the shadow of the Mercury retrograde on October 18 in the water sign of Scorpio. The themes we are to work with will show up here. The retrograde period itself is from November 6-26, 2012. At almost midnight November 13, 2012 Mercury while in retrograde goes back into Scorpio, going direct there on November 26, 2012 and wraps up its time in Scorpio on December 10, 2012. Then moving into Sagittarius for the second time. The wholeness of the cycle will last through December 13 (the point at which Mercury retrograded at) and culminate on December 17 with the Mercury opposition to Jupiter!

Please take note of the cycles pre-retrograde, during and after, and you may also notice differences between Mercury being in Scorpio as opposed to Sagittarius. The Scorpio energy offers us a deepening and further focus with our communication techniques. Directness, intensity, clarity and passion with emotional overtones are par for the course. Forgiveness, acceptance, and emotional transformation also being necessary directives with this Mercury cycle. Allow the fire of Mercury in Sagittarius to burn you through to ‘your truth’, and the ‘arrow’ of healing to cut through the ‘old’ & illuminate the ‘new’!
