New Moon in Taurus — April 26th 2017

Our New Moon crests in Taurus this month on the 26th at 6 degrees of the sign at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST). This month has been plagued by a Rx Mercury (still in place until May 3rd),  however, Venus  did go direct mid-month giving us a more positive outlook on our relationships, and perhaps lightened our hearts with renewed hope. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto remain in Rx mode through next month, all presenting us with challenges and less than ideal input from their lofty realms. Jupiter Rx in Libra can unbalance the status-quo, that will make our decision making a bit more difficult — be sure to have all the facts in deciding any major lifestyle decisions. Saturn Rx in Sagittarius has tweaked us by making us review our choices for our future and bringing some serious evaluations about where we want to be in the next 5, 10, or 15 years.  Pluto Rx in Capricorn is a conundrum — not overly happy in Saturn’s natural realm, we find we must be more practical and use more common sense in our everyday lives. Still, Pluto has more sway over worldly woes and actions — perhaps wiser minds will take charge and make this world a bit safer and kinder for all, other options will have consequences.

The Taurus New Moon gives all of us the chance to influence our lives and the lives of our loved ones, but also — if enough folks could think positive thoughts about our fragile world, perhaps it would offset the imbalance we are experiencing and bring about constructive and encouraging changes for the better. Indeed — this is the only world we have — and it behooves us to treat it and all of its inhabitants well, with respect and love.

Now to the changes we can help to make in our own lives — the Taurus New Moon is good for so many reasons — ruled by Venus, it encompasses beauty in every form, loving kindness, acceptance and admiration for everyone, on a practical note — Taurus has reign over money and real-estate, business and powerful mentors. Those who are born near this New Moon on the 26th will begin a new lunar cycle enabling them to move forward with those plans that are closest to their hearts. All of us can benefit when we tune into the rhythm of the Galaxy, feel the impulses that emanate from the deepest abysses of space and time. These cadences have been streaming throughout our sphere since creation, bringing us the evidence of a greater power, a Universal consciousness of spiritual connection, that joins all of us in our pathway in this lifetime.  Learn to use these karmic gifts of Providence to enable you on your individual journey with those for whom you love and care.

We all deserve to be loved and to find happiness during our lifetime here on Earth — with the help of the ebb and flow of our Galaxy we can find a way to put our hopes and dreams forth into the ether — where they can take root and become manifest in our own lives. Each New Moon has its own profile that will make your wishes more powerful — in Taurus we can wish for financial stability, wealth, and for a loving and caring family, we can release our anger and stubbornness with the stroke of a pen just by writing out our hopes, wishes and affirmations. Let your imagination soar to new heights and think outside the box to stimulate a new wave of desires that haven’t been requested heretofore.

With the positive aspects of Taurus, you can bring more positive ways of moving forward — Taurus has the ability to move to a goal step-by-step, never looking back and keeping your heart positive and goal-oriented. Use this power to move yourself into a fresh way of seeing your pathway — Taurus can also keep you on your path — steady and committed, they are unwavering in their knack for getting things done.

As always — try to find a quiet time to sit and think about what would improve your life right now — write as many affirmations or wishes as you like — and breathe into each word a sense of accomplishment and finality. Pretend for a moment that your wish has already been answered — see yourself with all of your wishes completed in a positive manner. You can write out your affirmations all day after the New Moon crests on the 26th at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST) for the most potent times of New Moon energy. However, the power of the New Moon can last for the next 48 hours.

Blend with the harmony of the Universe in order to fulfill your most ardent dreams — feel the flow of the Life Force we enjoy here on Earth. Immerse yourself into the dynamic atmosphere that surrounds us every day — and refresh every atom of your body with a spiritual and transcendent renewal. There is magic in the air we breathe, and the hope and wonder of our mere existence as we evolve ever higher on our human journey.

Peace

New Moon in Aries — April 7, 2016

Our New Moon enters lively Aries on the 7th at 6:23 AM (add one hour for DST), and it crests at 18 degrees of Aries where it will meet up with dynamic Uranus! This super creative and passionate energy will inspire us with new ideas and perhaps a few “off the wall” notions of how we can get things moving. Don’t act hastily, but do think about any “brilliant, unique, or dazzling” thoughts you might have and let them simmer in the back of your mind, while you probe the practicality of the pro’s and con’s! You may be surprised that there is substance and a very rational logic behind your thinking. With Pluto in Capricorn slowing into a Retrograde mode on the 18th we will be looking within our psyches to find what we can do to improve our future and perhaps mend some issues from our past.

Along with Rx Pluto we will be facing a Rx Saturn and Mars (Rx 17th) in Sagittarius, and Mercury in Taurus (Rx 29th) all going into Retrograde mode. This seems to be a long waiting period perhaps until late June when Mars will be moving forward, when we can commence working in earnest on our long-term plans. Of course, life moves on and we will have to address any usual or unexpected issues as they happen — just be aware that they might have to be revisited later in the year. Life is a series of ups and downs that we must learn to traverse with aplomb and perhaps a sense of humor in order to keep everything in perspective. Life is challenging, often arduous, and fraught with change — still we must concentrate on those wonderful moments when our happiness and sheer joy supersedes any ongoing upset. As that memorable quote says “It not the number of breaths we take — but the number of moments that take our breath away!” Try to live for those wondrous moment in your life — saturate yourself with the feelings you feel in those moments and store them away deep in your psyche to renew yourself and your spirit when things are not going so well. Balance, stability and patience will get you through all of life’s many passages with an inner knowing that this is your karma — this is your pathway — this is your life!

Now — the good news is that we all have the positive power to impact our own lives and the lives of our loved ones every month with the entry of the New Moon energy that flows outward in waves of ethereal wisdom and knowledge. We can tap into this vortex of Universal consciousness in order to bring our own desires, wishes, needs and affirmations into the ether and into our reality. With all of the Aries power and passion swirling around us at this moment, we can energize our lives and our innate beings with a magic that is beyond our understanding. Just know in your heart of hearts that our thoughts have a solidity and weightiness that can be picked up by the delicate and wraith-like vitality of the dynamism being brought forth by the Moon moving into Aries. The impact of this vigorous sign and aspect cannot be exaggerated — it is as if an uncontaminated and freshening breeze has dissipated all of the detritus of our lives and has replaced it with a clean slate of opportunity.

In order to use this new prospect of renewal we just have to write out our affirmations and wishes — especially those desires that will improve and restore our lives to balance and tranquillity. Of course, we can request any and all important things that will bring harmony into our spirit, our psyches, and our homes. We can also include any wishes or dreams for our loved ones in order to bring more positive and happy moments into their lives. With the Sun, Moon and Venus riding in Aries together, we have a powerhouse of Galaxial energy to work with all day on the 7th and for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Take your time in thinking about what would make the biggest difference in your life right now — concentrate on those things that will bring about the most constructive changes and write out a detailed affirmation about the issue. You can choose any idea, thought, insight that may help you move in a more positive direction (new job, more money, love, vacation, better living conditions, new home, getting along with family, finding new friends, better health, a calmer mind, a busier social life, being appreciated, moving up in your field or company, feeling happier, getting out of debt, finding true love, letting go of bitterness, forgiveness — for yourself or others, letting go of anxiety, anger and resentment, allowing peace into your heart, finding a higher goal, — well — you get it — anything is on the table)! It’s up to you to find those wishes and desires that will fill the bill for you and yours. Find the time to carefully prepare your list — Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac so it’s a true new beginning for the Zodiacal lunar year ahead!

Make this your year to change for the better and find the truth of your lifetime here on Earth. We all have a specific journey throughout our short time here — most important will be our associations with family and close friends — our karmic past connections. Don’t denigrate the significance of each and every contact as they are here for a specific purpose in our lives. We are to here teach, learn or compensate for past transgressions or past favors as are they! There are no close connections that are random or accidental — these are our karmic ties from the past that we have positive or negative relationships with during our evolution in this life. It behooves us to try to make each connection as strong and loving and positive as we can. Those persons whom we cannot seem to stand, are probably the most important in trying to bring some stability and kindness into the fold. Still — we are merely human BE-ings — in flux — working towards our final evolution as the entities of light and energy we truly are — this may not be our final round of lives upon this Earthly orb — but we must try to evolve into ever higher and higher form as we seek that mystical goal of immortality! We are promised resurrection and reward — and I truly believe we will all achieve this lofty objective.

Peace and Love
