Hello Everyone, Happy Spring!
This fire sign New Moon in Aries is the most potent New Moon of the year for new beginnings. This is the time for blazing trails, discovering new potentials, and making leaps of faith. Following the spring equinox, Passover, and the Easter holiday, this New Moon now begins the Holy month of Ramadan. Let us seed this new cycle replacing hate with love and violence with compassion. I have just returned from yet another magical adventure in Egypt. The mystical pull to Egypt is very strong at this time for those that are being called, and the spiritual rewards are profound. Each visit over the years has only increased my connection and love for ancient Egypt. This time, I experienced an extraordinary initiation/meditation with Sekhmet in her healing chamber at Karnak Temple; and channeled the beautiful soul healing frequencies of the Hathors at Dendera Temple. According to the ancient sage Imhotep (Thoth), each temple has its own frequency and message for those who come in peace, and the multidimensional codes of light (some call them the Ascension Codes) are now open to all who are called to walk upon the New Earth, and Egypt holds the keys for this activation. As always, connecting with old friends (and making new ones) while visiting the sacred sites is always a blessing. I return with a full heart once again…thank you, Egypt!

NEW MOON IN ARIES APRIL 11, 2021
This New Moon is a very powerful Cosmic Initiator coming in as the four personal planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus) as well as the asteroid Chiron, all fall in the fire sign, Aries. This is also the first New Moon following Spring Equinox emphasizing new life, new growth, and new potential over the next twelve months. Major changes are imminent; changes that push us out of our comfort zones and into areas that will test the courage of our convictions. We are coming out of the previous Full Moon phase in Libra (March 28) in which personal relationship themes and karmic lessons with “the other” were highlighted. Now, it is time to redefine your sense of self by directly taking steps towards a more fulfilling life. What is it that you really want to “seed” and nourish in your life now? Rediscovering your priorities (some of which may have changed during the past year), can take you on an entirely new adventure in your life, but implementing new changes can be daunting at first. Like Lot’s wife in the Bible story, there is no turning back. Aries is the energy of the pioneer. This is the time for blazing trails, discovering new potentials, and making leaps of faith. Whether in our political views, personal life, or spiritual philosophy, it takes real courage to break away from the pack and think for ourselves. In the ancient past, the Age of Aries (the god of war) meant conquering new territory through wars and aggression. Now, if we can embrace the Archetype of the Spiritual Warrior and Warrioress (whether through political activism, spiritual work, alternative healing modalities, Shamanism, and honoring the wisdom of the Mother Earth) we can move out of the old patriarchal systems into a more enlightened New Age of peace and freedom.
Aries is the cardinal fire sign, the first sign of the zodiac, and the ruler of Mars (the ancient god of war). On the personality level, Aries is where we begin to individuate and stretch our egos. The sign of Aries rules the head and face, so oftentimes an Aries energy imbalance can cause headaches, jaw pain, or dental flare-ups. Aries energy needs physical activity to be productive; they do not like sitting on the sidelines. If your Sun sign is Aries, this is your personal New Moon showing that you are ready to take action and try something new, just avoid being reckless and taking unnecessary physical risks. Whether you are ready to begin a new project or business; a new relationship; a new health regime or just ready for a new adventure; it is time now to be proactive in taking positive action. Aries can make very idealistic and forth-right leaders. They do not like to waste time over-thinking things and usually take quick and decisive action on the matter at hand. Negative Aries energy can become too forceful and overbearing and quick to anger. No matter what your birth sign, wherever the sign of Aries falls in your chart indicates the area of life where you are feeling restless and want to make changes. The trick with Aries is to implement change without being reckless, scattered, or impatient.
Aries energy is connected with the root chakra and our sense of grounding in the physical world. A balanced root chakra allows us to feel secure amidst change. Whether male or female, it is important to integrate the archetype of the “spiritual warrior” or shaman into our lives and to allow this healing on an inner level. There are many healing paths open if you have the courage to be a pioneer in your own life. Having the courage to learn a new skill, take a new job, enter a new relationship, or even have a therapy/counseling session can change your life.
Fire Stellium in Aries:
During this New Moon we have four major planets, called a “stellium” (Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus) in the fire sign Aries; three of which (Sun, Moon, and Venus) are making a challenging square aspect to the planet, Pluto, in the earth sign Capricorn. How does this translate? Basically, very deep emotional changes are being felt on every level, as Pluto, god of the underworld, brings up old trauma and toxic emotions for release. Transformation is possible as old wounds having to do with violence and abuse are healed (Chiron in Aries). The old power structures are being dismantled, and positive breakthroughs are possible; this clash of fire with earth demands both passion and determination to succeed. However, major healing and karmic release must happen before this can occur. Whether is on a personal or collective level, forgiveness and compassion are necessary, especially for and by individuals who have been feeling suffocated, disempowered, and controlled. Mercury in Aries can add fuel to the fire of anger, so it is extremely important in these volatile times to use the healing power of Venus to be more open and receptive to cooperation, rather than aggression. Whether in personal or global relations, stating your case calmly and fairly is much more beneficial than belligerence and aggression. Remember the prior Full Moon in Libra theme of balance and win-win situations. The message of Aries is “be true to your vision and take the practical steps to implement it.” We now have more energy available to move out of old fear patterns. It is difficult to remain “stuck” when four personal planets are lined up in Aries!
Sun, Moon, and Venus in Aries Sextile Jupiter in Aquarius Sextile Mars in Gemini:
This can be an amazingly positive, vibrant, and dynamic configuration if you know how to use the energy. Multiple beneficial opportunities and new projects may appear quickly, but it is important to know what you want and who you are; in other words, be centered and grounded, or the energies may feel a bit like a runaway horse with all the fire and air energy. You may feel like you are multi-tasking on many levels. New energetic timelines are opening up, as the Age of Aquarius approaches. Your body may feel like it is shifting between high and low energy phases. Be patient with yourself. Remembering the connection to your root chakra and doing the physical work is important now: exercise, attention to diet, gardening, martial arts, shamanic work all help to ground one in the physical body.
Mercury in Aries Sextile Saturn in Aquarius:
This positive Fire and Air aspect brings in more mental clarity after the past few weeks of Piscean fogginess. Ideas come into form; commitments are honored. Once again, there are no retrograde planets until the end of the month, so Mercury can cut through a lot of mental weeds at the moment.
Venus in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn:
During this New Moon, Venus is in a hard aspect with Pluto; the shadow comes in. We may be reviewing issues of self-worth and self-doubt until Venus moves into Taurus on April 14. Recurring themes (old stuff) around trust issues may come up now to be released. When Venus moves into Taurus (her home sign) a new cycle begins!
MOON IN ARIES MEDITATION with EGYPTIAN GODDESS SEKHMET:
The Lion-headed Goddess Sekmet represents the female power of Mars and Pluto. She is the powerful, warrior-like aspect of the goddess related to medicine, psychic surgery, and the women’s blood mysteries which govern birth, life, and death. She gives us the courage to face life’s most difficult challenges and transform fear into action.
Find your inner sanctuary and relax. Light a white and/or red candle. Find a comfortable position (sitting or lying down). Take a few deep breaths, letting go of any stress or body discomfort. You are safe and protected by your guides and angels, and only the Light may now fill your presence. See yourself walking along a well-worn and familiar path leading you to the main gate of a Temple enclosure. You can see the crescent moon above you, and you feel the protection of your guides around you. A white-robed priestess awaits you at the gate and leads you inside the inner sanctuary of the temple. You find yourself standing before a tall statue made of smooth black granite. It is the image of Sekhmet with her beautiful lion face and well-formed woman’s body. She wears the sun disc on her head; she is the daughter of the Sun God, Ra. She carries a lotus staff in one hand and holds the key of life, the ankh, in the other. She is here to help you cut the cords that bind you to the past. She can assist in releasing old hurts and betrayals. She can devour the past and assist you in shedding outworn layers of cellular memory. Sekmet knows the shamanic realms of magic and manifestation. You spend some time in meditation with her and ask for her healing presence to assist you in your process. There is a small red carnelian heart lying at her feet; this is for you. You thank the Goddess and leave her sanctuary. The white-robed priestess leads you back through the moonlit temple; back to your own time and space. You feel lighter and more peaceful after this journey. You are ready for the NEW.
May You Walk in Truth and Beauty Always,
