Plant a seed tonight
Dark of the Moon

Will come to be by the Full Moon’s light.

While I am catching up on the flood of enrollments in my brand new Birthday Club (Yowie! Can I just mention that I am beyond thrilled, y’all! Thank you, thank you!!!), I am offering this article on today’s most magical New Moon (at 10:37 a.m. EDT) by astrologer Mary Pat Lynch. She focuses on all of Lady Luna’s energies and cycles that guide and reward our lives.
May your seeds and new beginnings be blessed.  ~ Beth

Moon Into Aries: Ride the Tiger
by Mary Pat Lynch

Thursday brings us a surge of vitality, libido, life force, the likes of which we’ve not seen in some time: The New Moon in Aries flanked by Mercury and Uranus, also in Aries. At the beginning of the new astrological year, and beginning of a new Uranus cycle, power is flowing. The challenge is to find ways to channel this energy in positive, life-affirming ways.

Early Thursday, the Moon is reborn in Aries, her Equinox moment. She joins Mercury, touches Neptune, joins the Sun (New Moon here!), joins Uranus, touches Chiron, and flows energy with the North Node, all in one day.

We’re likely to feel energized to the max, and yet the patterns surrounding this New Moon tell us to wait, stay calm, and choose carefully.

Notice that Mars, retrograde in Virgo, opposes Chiron in the midst of all this Aries action. Mars is Aries’ ruler, making his voice an important one.

He anchors both the Grand Trine in Earth and Grand Cross in the mutable signs in the sky now. He’s finding every way he can to ask us to stay grounded.

This New Moon offers a wonderful opportunity for setting intentions and making wishes in the knowledge that the seeds we plant now will have tremendous energy to help them grow.

This is a long term New Moon, coming as it does at the beginning of a new zodiac cycle and a new Uranus cycle. The energy we’re being offered now is meant to last.

Where will this New Moon happen in your birth chart? Look there for new surprises emerging in your life.

Which house does Aries rule (which could be next door to where the New Moon happens, depending on where your house cusps are)? This area of life will be energized. What birth planets are touched by this New Moon? Look here for transformation.

With all this potential for re-creating ours lives, why waste this gift of Aries fire in anger, irritation or panic? The Grand Trine in Earth helps us flow the energy into productive channels, if we connect with the steady heartbeat of the world. Ride the tiger with joy, and plant lots of seeds…

To learn more about this very intense Dark Moon, including the powerful global intention being set on this magical day, I urge you to also visit here!

Blessed be!
