Moon’s position: 8 degrees Aries (The Ram)
We are at a new beginning. This is obvious. “Nothing has changed yet everything is different” Yet we must sort through to find authenticity and true guidance rather than just do things new because we can.
When I entered into meditation I saw a lot of variations & tempting new methods. And while I tend to embrace a bit of novelty, I didn’t trust to be able to read the signs properly in these new environments and instead returned to the core forms as I have been taught.
From this I believe this next phase of life is going to ask each of us to discern that for ourselves: where does the tried and true remain and where does the need to innovate prevail instead?
As the Sun steps in front of Aries, as we step into the constellation Aries we begin afresh. We are aligned with the primordial impulse to become. All potential, all possibility, rolling around invisibly within the void out of which all things come. Raw potential. Exciting.
I sense the optimism and hope that emerges from the Sun’s passage here in front of this fantastic creature of Aries, the Ram. Our best methods bring us into attunement with this light of purity, energy, fresh air, instruction and Inspiration!
This energy also implies the Fool Tarot card who carries great wisdom and the sacred tools of the four directions, the four elements, in his travel pack. The Sword of Truth, the Rod of Uprightness, the Chalice of Compassion and the Shield of Prudence.
Here in Aries we can simply be re-ignited through contact with the perpetual source of all things.
This new Moon we can muse upon radical innovative, electric-never-before-seen realities emerging into the future – into the living future of this planet.
This is a wonderful time to Innovate the future – your future, our future.
It may all seem so clear and easy and possible.
Yet… we are by necessity still tied to the puzzles that must be solved on the material level regarding moving around in society in the future safely. The real puzzles of the unsustainable and over-consumptive cycles so deeply embedded in our modern way of life. The grief and loss that must be integrated, experienced, felt…
In other words, the cold hard material facts with us despite this new paint box of possibilities popping open behind the Sun and Moon and Uranus.
Speaking in general spiritual terms, when we make the effort to commune with spiritual forces, these forces will change us on a personal level.
Here the energies we shall engage appear as sunlight helping to break down the disease, the funk, the mold that may have taken hold within ourselves. I’m not talking about the Corona Virus – I’m talking about within ourselves, embedded as we are within this culture, these times… Like the snap of fresh bed sheets on the line we become cleansed and prepared for what is yet to come.
To be clear, to underline the point, this is less a moon of action and more a moon of communion, deep listening and heart opening to the Optimism of the Infinite. The perpetual presence of Life.
