This new moon is new in Aries on the 7th April 2016 at 11.24 am GMT. This new moon is conjunct Uranus and square Pluto so we are in for a ride. Expect the unexpected and be ready to start a new chapter in your lives as these powerful energies pave the way for major, major change.
Aries energy is the start of the astrological zodiac and so signals a time for new adventures, new beginnings and initiating new projects. This is THE time to commit to something important that you want to hold an energy that brings spiritual and consciousness rebirth. Pluto is preparing to tear down and destabilise structures, systems in place and reform your foundations while Uranus brings breakthrough.
These two planets are strategically aligned to tear a part the programmes that hold the foundation of your reality in place. Be prepared for some stirring and deep, profound realisations. Part of what we might realise, with Pluto’s undeniable bear-like energy (I always see Pluto as a bear), is how we try to manipulate and control situations for our own good, rather than just follow our deeper hearts and guidance.
We attempt to hold off change, get away with what we can and hope for the best, knowing deep down that we are just holding off the inevitable. This comes from a need to look after number one first (which is just fear) and with that we forget about the reality that what hurts or upsets another ultimately hurts us – whether we know it immediately or not.
Pluto’s aim is to uncover and liberate us so we can ultimately be free, no longer bound to our past stories, past history and ideas of being separate, acting out our separation consciousness without consequence. This history is eons, lifetimes, ancestors old and so this programming runs deep. This programming, which is embedded in our DNA and psyche runs many generations old, instilled through cultural and religious indoctrination. It just gets passed on until it is healed.
You’d be wise to reflect and take your time under these energetic currents since the aspects are challenging and the planets involved powerful. While Aries wants us to rush in, it might be best to take your time, feel into what is needed and assess how to move forward.
With Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius, unpicking our core limiting beliefs is fundamental if we are to free our efforts to move forward and make progress in our lives. So much of what we achieve is down to what we believe on an often deeply unconscious level.
Jupiter is about beliefs and truth – in effect the truth of our reality is only ever down to our perception, and this is an amalgamation of what we choose to believe – it’s always a choice even when it doesn’t feel like it. Our beliefs impact our emotions and our thinking and our thinking and emotions reinforce our core beliefs.
What should’s, can’ts, needs, must nots, if onlys, buts, etc etc do we entertain which support our deeper beliefs? I can’t do that because… I should not behave in that or this way… what deeper beliefs hold these conditional beliefs in place?
So making steps to question and transmute old beliefs, and invite new beliefs is going to support us to get on with our paths. Divine and cognitive tools can support this process.
It’s time to think about your value systems too, what values do you hold dear that keep you tied into your old identity? What do you value that needs a rethink? Do your values serve you the highest part of you? Do they support you? How do your values inform your thinking, feeling and action? What are you needing to expand into, to learn and grow and what holds you back from that?
It’s a great moon to consider your intentions, purpose and destiny. This particular new moon is a powerful time for intentions – so if you sit quietly, call in the lunar energies, write down your intentions and get clear in your visual, expression and feeling centre what you want for yourself, you will harness the powerful manifestation energies of this new moon and over the forthcoming months you should see a lot of opportunities coming your way. One intention you might have is to have the opportunity to fully embrace your highest potential, and in whatever form your Higher Self knows is best for you – this way whatever ego constructs you have (although some might be aligned with your higher self) are overridden by your Higher Self’s desires for you.
