The Aries New Moon is on March 30th 2014 at 12:44 p.m. MT. The Sun and Moon are at 9 degrees 58 inches Aries and is conjunct Uranus (12 degrees Aries) and asteroid Juno (14 degrees Aries). The Sun/Moon/Uranus/Juno are square Pluto (13 degrees Capricorn) and square Jupiter (11 degrees Cancer) creating a T-square configuration.
All Aries New Moons mark the beginning of astrological new beginnings and are about setting intentions around action, moving forward, passion, self-identity, how you begin things, personally. The Sabian Symbol for 10 degrees Aries is: "A teacher gives new symbolic forms to traditional images; revision of attitude at the beginning of a new cycle of experience."
Mars (the ruling planet of Aries) and Saturn are the only 2 Planets retrograding (appear to be moving backwards = losing astrological degrees) right now. On April 21st Uranus and Pluto make the 5th of 7 exact squares over 3 years (14 degrees of Aries/Capricorn)....at that time Jupiter and retrograding Mars will be at 14 degrees Cancer/Libra creating a perfect grand cross configuration. A grand cross is 4 squares and two oppositions which lock into this New Moon.
How do you relate to pressure? Do you experience it as tension? Grand crosses create major pressure which many of us read as tension because we push and resist the pressure. Because Aries is so intimately connected to beginnings this New Moon is a good time to look at your personal pattern of beginnings. Do you know your birth story? Was it long and painful? Was the umbilical cord wrapped around your neck? Did you come quickly, ready for the world? The pressure we felt in the womb was a call to birth. This kind of astrological configuration can create a similar opportunity...to birth ourselves a-new...letting go of old out-worn patterns and step into the unknown. How do you want to rebirth yourself? This New Moon is the invitation to set your best intentions and dance with the intensity of where you are in your personal story. Letting go can be difficult and freedom is the prize.
