New Moon/Sun in Aquarius is conjunct Neptune in Pisces while square Saturn in Sagittarius (out of sign).  Here we have a lovely dark moon wildcard – heady silent undercurrents of personal resolutions – past/future/now collide.  Dark moons are restful, contemplative and quiet – this moon awakens interior tectonic shifts.  Work it !

Culmination degrees are filled with energy expression of that sign, this Uranus-ruled new moon delivers innovation in spades.   We are heading into the last exact square of Uranus and Pluto on March 17 at 15 degrees of Aries and Capricorn, respectively.  This time both planets are direct and ready to seal the deal.

Mars at new moon is also at the culmination degree of Pisces ready to rock n roll into his ruling sign, Aries on the next day, Thursday the 19th, 6:11pm Chicago time.
Venus follows Mars into Aries the day after at 2:05pm Chicago time.  These two lovers meeting in Aries delivers an onrush of brand new shiny hot to trot energy that is backed up by Uranus in Aries trine Jupiter Rx in Leo.  Note the illustration above was also chosen as a nod to Chinese New Year of the Sheep…more on that soon.

This new moon we’ll be revving our engines & layin’ tread at the 29 degree stop light.  Get your head right prior to, these energies are ripe for change – juicy red fruit is ready to be picked.  (Just got a visual of Sharon Osbourne pitching a ham over the fence at her noisy neighbors, so putting it out there for ya.  Like I said, 29 degrees – over it.)  

New Moon in Aquarius accentuates change, innovation, polarity therapy, yin/yang, electricity, angelic intervention, clairvoyance, and the curious.  If you are seeking a shift in perspective, output/input, altitude – this is your new moon !

Squares to Saturn in Sagittarius with Jupiter Rx indicates rolling with your changes, though you may not SEE the whole enchilada or bullseye goal set at this time.  Just keep walking, swimming, flying or crawling if you have to.  This new moon delivers the beginnings of lasting change – it is upon us, we may as well ride the lightning.

peace out

Fair Warning – no trespass against any and all Virgos !

Virgos are born to solve, perfect, and protect.
When a festering boil erupts, it will be rooted.

Resistance is futile.

Mars direct Friday April 13, 2012 at 3 degrees Virgo: 10:53pm, CST, USA

Read: Mars has been jammed up our nostrils since entering the sign of Virgo on November 10th aggravating, initiating & rousing any and all micro – minutiae analyzation in full throttle force.

Mars has been mainlining energy into all Virgo planets via direct motion since November 10th.
Now – planets situated between 23 and 3 degrees of Virgo will be taking a retrograde hit, followed by another direct hit.

Read:  Direct and perfect, retrograde and turn the blade.

Mars is the blade, the power, the energy outgoing while direct.
Virgos prune.  Virgos heal.  They are duty – bound to serve others.

Virgos perfect by nature.

Mars while retrograde, is the blade, the power, turned inward  to re-assess the re-visions already made by the firm and steadfast Virgo intellect.  During Mars retrograde, Virgos will heal themselves.
Any and all work not deemed perfect by the perfectionist within will be revived, re-invigorated and resolved.

Natal planets between 23 and 3 degrees of Virgo will feel this Mars Rx strongly by conjunction.  Pisces planets by opposition, and Gemini and Sagittarius will feel Mars Rx by square.

Monday Jan 23rd : New Moon in Aquarius will bring communication undercurrents, intuitive, zaps and transformative vibes with Mars, Pluto and Sun/Moon/ Mercury activating Uranus – sharp intuitive powers !

Creative solutions will present themselves – be aware the Goddess vibe is strong with Lilith opposite Saturn at the culmination degree of 29 Libra.

Energies will be shifting, do not pick battles with authority – Lillith is square New Moon/Sun and opposite Saturn, and Mars is shifting to Retrograde.

Do not pick fights during Mars retrograde – plot and plan, yes – confront, no.

By evening, Moon passes the tense emotional squares, the atmosphere eases as Mars stations Rx, freeing us to enjoy the fizzy Aquarian Moon.

She who would slay dragons must first learn their habits.
