Forecast for the New Moon in Aries
What we're all going through ...
Good gracious, just look at that stellium in Aries this month -- five planets ... half the astrological sky ... invested in initiative, new beginnings, action and the drive to pursue personal ambitions.
To an astrologer, the practice of setting New Years' resolutions on January 1 and hoping something will come of them seems arbitrary and faintly ridiculous. There is absolutely nothing magical about January 1. It's a completely random human invention -- and yet for some reason we set it up as some kind of milestone ... and run our lives by it.
If you want help, determination and cosmic support -- the natural flow of life and human development behind your wishes and commitments, the New Moon in Aries ... and the several weeks following it ... is the place of power. Even without an alignment like this one, there's plenty of force and drive urging you to set a new course, start a new chapter, become the next version of your unfolding self.
So ... here we are. And if you're at all inclined to make anything such as this happen in your world this year, now's the time to gather your ideas, your ambitions, your resolve and courage ... and launch the next segment of your journey.
The Lunation in Aries is always the most important of the new year when acting on new initiatives, pursuing ambitions and just getting things going again. Heart and spirit are finally together in the sign of enterprise and daring. No wonder spring has such a fabulous, well deserved reputation for new beginnings.
But Spring hasn't brought much joy for a while -- and for anyone with Natal Planets in the mid-to-late degrees of Cardinal signs -- Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn -- the road has been especially rocky. The worst is over, but what's ahead is still not easy. Maybe somewhere in there you'll see a silver lining.
The house that holds 19 - 25° Aries and the house that holds those same degrees in Capricorn (where the Uranus / Pluto square has formed) are really duking it out. They have been for a while, and they'll be at it for a while. Even the aftermath of their conflict will be stressful. When these slow-moving Karmic planets settle in and get crossways, they really kick up sand ... and they do it for a long, long time.
So, I'll keep talking about what's happening and why. And on your side of the aisle, notice how that energy shows up in your real life drama. See what it's trying to achieve -- and find creative ways to both live with it ... and help it happen. Put yourself on the side of the inevitable changes. It's the only safe, sane way to weather this storm and wind up in any decent shape.
Here's what the Lunation Chart looks like this month.

5 Things to Know About Aries -- Dealing with the Zodiac's Pushiest Sign ---> 1 -- There are twelve signs in the Zodiac. Of these, Aries is the first. Number One. Any Aries will tell you there are good and obvious reasons for that. Moreover he's brave enough to say this out loud in front of Leos and Capricorns. He may have a point, but this tells you some things about Aries. He's confident, courageous and candid.
The New Moon in Aries -- Aries Energy in the Creative Process ---> We shall not cease from exploration -- And the end of all our exploring -- Will be to arrive where we started -- And know the place for the first time. -- The place of new beginnings --
With the arrival of Aries we have indeed arrived again at the place of our beginnings, having traveled another cycle on the spiral of the creative process ... from the initial thrust of new efforts and undertakings in dynamic, assertive Aries last year to the spiritual enlightenment, dissolution, acceptance, and release of Pisces last month.
The New Moon -- A Milestone Celestial Event ---> When The Moon joins The Sun in the sky -- In astrology, the celestial phenomenon known as the New Moon occurs at the exact moment the Sun and the Moon occupy precisely the same point in the sky-map of the Zodiac -- the same degree and minute of arc in a particular sign. This alignment is known as a conjunction.
Born with the Sun in Aries -- The Aries Character ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Direct and to the point -- Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that. Whoever first said, "Lead, follow or get out of the way," was an Aries through and through. (Only what he meant was "I'm gonna lead. The rest of you follow. And God help whoever doesn't get out of the way.")
Changing Times / Changing Signs -- Forecast for the Sun's transit of Aries 2017 ---> Welcome to Spring! -- The Sun arrived in Aries early this year. Three comrades were there to greet him. This month, instead of a void-of-course Moon, the Sagittarius Moon was literally within minutes of its last aspect -- a conjunction with powerful Saturn.
Horoscopes When the Sun is in Aries -- March 20 to April 20 ---> If Your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in ... Aries -- Your theme song this month is ... "I gotta be me ... !!" So let the world hear that message. Let it see who you really are. Put your special qualities on display with all the flair and drama you can devise. Say what you believe. Be yourself.
When the Sun is in Aries ---> Welcome to Spring!! -- When the Sun is in Aries, people are aggressive, direct, and competitive. Attitudes are forceful and energetic. It's time to shake off the meditative moods that prevailed during Pisces, and kick some ... um ... aspirations. With the Sun in Aries, people are candid, blunt, emphatic and concerned with winning. They are assertive and ambitious.
The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)
The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity.
