Beginnings toward new directions, managing challenges and accepting responsibility.
The New Moon cycle that begins today is in the interval between January and July’s Eclipses, thus we find ourselves at this very point when eclipse seeds have matured and beginnings as well as dynamic forward action are going to manifest. It is the month that creates the necessary tension to take initiative, manage crises, and overcome obstacles while reminding us that we must eliminate fears and release all “excess weight”. Aries, is about immediate response and highlights the consciousness of the present moment; the here and now.
Leaving a period (Mercury retrograde in Pisces) that may have been dominated by ambiguity, elusiveness and fusion of ideas, thoughts, and data, we are entering into the phase where we need to focus on the present actively. Each period has its purpose and we still have some more time until Mercury enters Aries, to process what will ultimately emerge out of this meandering process of re-examination which was not necessarily intended for reaching a clearly defined conclusion. It seemed more like a mind travel in seeking solutions and engaging with unresolved matter. In the previous lunar month, we may have taken something apart in order to recompose something new, or may have been lost in bureaucratic conundrums, multiple thoughts, ideas, facts, contacts and stimuli. A kind of creative re-thinking that is not concerned in carrying out, but considers paths, transcends, develops, refines and perceives. Brexit talks may come to mind, and whatever else we engaged with on a personal or collective level. There are plenty of examples in the news and in our personal lives that resonate with the infinite combinations that were present, while we absorbed signals, and information from all sort of directions. Learning, thinking or communicating tapped into foreign territories, and gestation seeds will potentially emerge soon, with acuity, a sense of aliveness of spirit and cognition, to promote agreements, conclusions and new directions. Mercury will enter Aries on April 17. Until then, Mercury is gradually gaining speed, leaving its Neptunian experience and applies to a sextile with Saturn in Capricorn, which will assist in ordering things or crystallize agreements. It’s sextile with Pluto may engage the mind into specialised fields of research or handling joined finances.
