Here in the North Country even though it was spring the night air was crisp and cold. It was the night of the New Moon so the sky was completely dark except for the Starry Ones twinkling brightly. Snowy Owl and Shooting Star decided to go to the clearing in the woods where they could build a fire to keep warm as they celebrated this New Moon ceremony. As they approached the woods a fire was already burning. The flames licked the darkness. Sitting around the fire were their friends Red Thunderbird and Runs With The Salmon. The sisters did not know the young men from the other side of Turtle Island had come to join them. That meant the message of this New Moon was important to all of them. The four friends greeted each other warmly.
From the darkness Sister Moon began her message “This Moon cycle asks who are you? Do you know who you really are? The answer is you are unique with special gifts to offer to the world. This New Moon is opening a path way for you to share those gifts. All that is required is the courage to be your true self and find inspiration in every moment. This is the New Moon of inspired new beginnings. But it also asks you to let go of who you are not. All those roles you play to gain acknowledge and recognition in the material world block you from being authentically you. This New Moon begins a much longer cycle of coming home to you.”
Sister Moon continued “each of you know you are Wisdom Keepers. The fire is to remind you of the Divine Flame that exists in your heart. Turn that flame into a torch so if there is darkness on the path ahead you can light the way for yourself and others. And remember as you walk your new path you are never alone. Creator and Great Mystery always walk with you.”
The four friends thanked Sister Moon for her message. They were excited about the new beginnings that lay ahead.
All astrological signs ask a question. Aries asks “who am I?” The answer is simply I AM. This Aries New Moon wants us to discover our true self. The ruler of this Lunation is Mars at 03 degrees Gemini (actively creating your new story). The shadow side of Mars in Gemini is confusion and scatteredness. But Gemini can also connect us with our Soul Self and its wise guidance. The Soul Centered ruler of Aries is Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) currently at 18 degrees Pisces (mystical connection). Mercury has been travelling with Neptune in Pisces (illusion, deception, or illumination) since March 24. There certainly has been a lot of deceptions exposed during that time. The important question to ask is how am I deceiving myself? I believe that was the theme of the Mercury retrograde journey March 05/06 to March 28. We are still in the Mercury Rx shadow until he enters Aries on April 16/17 (inspired new beginnings) so issues of what is true and what is not true are still relevant. Venus is also currently in Pisces asking us to heal, forgive, complete, and release so we can begin anew when she enters Aries on Apr 20. All three Pisces planets will be square Jupiter in Sagittarius (spiritual truth) in the next two months. Squares ask us to find new ways of doing things.
We also have a Cardinal Grand Cross (breaking out of the box) at this New Moon. Saturn at 20 degrees Capricorn, South Node at 22 degrees Capricorn, and Pluto at 23 degrees Capricorn are tightly clustered asking us to let go of limitation and restriction of the past. They are opposite the North Node at 22 degrees Cancer (our spiritual destiny path). This opposition is square (finding new ways of doing things) the Sun/Moon at 15 degrees Aries (new beginnings) Eris at 23 degrees Aries (chaos or purposeful action) and Pallas Athene at 21 degrees Libra (Goddess of wisdom and justice). This Grand Cross is asking us to let go of who we are not.
Our Animal Totem guides for this Aries New Moon are Falcon, clear vision, and Red Tailed Hawk, spiritual messages. The Astrological Earth is in Libra and she is guided by Crow, justice and fairness for all, and Raven, the magic of the Mysteries. (They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere). Here where I live Hawk and Crow have been very active the last few days.
The Clan Mother who guides us for this New Moon is Looks Far Woman. She is the guardian of the Crack in the Universe and the Golden Door of Illumination. She is the keeper of inner potential and teaches us how to See the Truth, (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
This is a powerful Moon of new beginnings but also about releasing the old self with love. I leave you with this quotation by Anonymous.
I’ve left behind my outgrown self and softly closed the door,
The long wide road that lies ahead I have not known before.
