New Moon In Aries . . . Already!?

We have the New Moon in Aries coming up next week, Tuesday, April 17th . . . and this is a great time to collect one’s thoughts and focus on what new projects to set into motion. This New Moon falls at 27Aries so those us with personal planets and Angles at 26-27 degrees may find this one getting our attention. I’m curious to see if it will hit my chart with the force of the string of lunations at 29 degrees over the past several months. Astrologers are perennial guinea pigs . . . :-) Of course, with Saturn pretty much at a stop (it’s stationary direct on Thursday, April 19th ), it may take a bit longer to get the old momentum up once more. Remember to write abundance checks!!

This last month or so has been one for me that seems like I’m simultaneously going nowhere and full speed ahead all at the same time. It could be the conflict between the Saturn/Neptune opposition and that energetic square between Jupiter & Uranus. In any case, I’m going to be a happy camper when this effect slips away . . . it’s driving me nutz!!

Pat Paquette’s latest post has a link to an astrology site by Barry Perlman called Astrobarry. I enjoyed what he had to say so much I added a link on my sidebar. He’s another fellow astro-guinea pig! :-)


Spring is pretty much arrived here even though it’s cold and windy now. At least my daffodils will last longer but it sure slows down the asparagus! We had our first desserts made from early rhubarb – lovely red varieties that are mild and yummy. There are broad hints from the men folk for a rhubarb custard pie. :-)

Oh yes . . . I LOVE my new bathroom!!! Joe, you were right, it’s worth every moment of aggravation! My S/O teases me about “petting” the wainscoting and other woodwork.

4/16/07 This summation of the New Moon in Aries is from Jeff Jawer on StarIQ . . . I like his approach very much, especially note his comment about forgiving ourselves in the learning process.

snip. . . ‘The New Moon in Aries is the ignition point of the astrological year. The union of the Sun and Moon in this pioneering sign helps clear away the past and to make way for a new adventure. It’s helpful to permit mistakes at the beginning of any process since getting things moving is more important than making them perfect. Being forgiving of yourself and others gives us all room to explore and, hopefully, discover constructive ways to improve our lives.

The forsythia is blooming now and it’s getting lovely and green around here. :-)

    uncanny! I was just asking about this over at Raging Univers(ity) and here it is!

  • Joe

    seems like I’m simultaneously going nowhere and full speed ahead all at the same time.You nailed that one! Thanks for expressing it so cleverly. I am so SICK of this feeling of being a stationary speed-demon!

  • Pat Paquette

    Well, be careful what you wish for, Joe. The flip side is moving forward at breakneck speed with no brakes at all! I’ve had more nightmares about that than than about being stuck. That said, I don’t feel all that stuck. There has been movement in the background. I just can’t see it yet. Could that be happening for you, too, Joe?

  • Neith

    The flip side is moving forward at breakneck speed with no brakes at all! I’ve had more nightmares about that than than about being stuck.LOL! Me too! I stopped over to Pisces Chronicles to give feedback for Joe . . . I do believe there is movement in the background too. It’s when it moves to the forefront that things may get interesting . . . :-)

    I for one will be mighty relieved when the background movement surges fore!! I can’t stand this ‘spinning my wheels’ anymore!! :-D (I’m ready to apply foot to brake should need arise!!)

  • Pat Paquette

    I’m ready to apply foot to brake should need arise!Sure . . . and if you’re not having a bad Uranus/Mars transit, maybe they’ll work! Ever seen Hitchcock’s Family Plot?I’m kidding of course. Well, half-kidding. If Saturn and Neptune hadn’t been opposed while Uranus and the North Node were conjunct, I imagine there would have been a whole lot of brake failures, and rather than complaining about being stuck, we’d all be in a panic about things moving too fast with no control over lives. Just remember that all winter, while that cocoon is sitting there “stuck” on a twig, there’s an awful lot happening in his life…

    Just remember that all winter, while that cocoon is sitting there “stuck” on a twig, there’s an awful lot happening in his life… I sure feel this way! Plus having computer problems on my laptop @ home sure slowed down communications. It’s going in to have it’s insides cleaned up so it will quit shutting down from overheating . . . I’m seriously thinking of getting a desktop even though I love being able to set up the laptop on the kitchen table.

  • Pat Paquette

    Neith, if you’re going to buy a new computer, why not invest in a new laptop? Prices have come way down. Except for the few periods when I’ve worked on-site, I’ve used a laptop exclusively for the past 10 years.

  • Neith

    I’m really hoping, Pat, that when they get done cleaning the dust bunnies out of my laptop’s innards it will work fine again. It’s my understanding the overheating problem is created in part by the manufacturer’s willingness to put in more RAM than there is capacity for . . . and mine has 1GB of RAM. Which makes it snap right along! :-)

  • Neith

    YAY!! My laptop is like new again!!! guess it will just have to go in once a year for a good housecleaning . . . :-)

  • Pat Paquette

    YAY!! And with deadlines right around the corner, not a moment too soon!

  • casey

    Petting the wood? hee. My brother would so understand that.I was good until this month. Now I want the work stuff to come unstuck. We don’t have a lot of work which makes NO SENSE when gas is $3.00/gal. Is it the merger (who bought who?)? Is it that our American center manager defected to the competition and took good clients? Is it that land processing is a dinosaur? Somebody get the lug wrench and get that bolt unstuck on Saturn. (If you haven’t seen it, I left a link on Pat’s next-to-last post.)

  • Neith

    YAY!! And with deadlines right around the corner, not a moment too soonThe only thing keeping me from seriously freaking was knowing there was a laptop I could borrow if necessary . . . .

  • Neith

    Somebody get the lug wrench and get that bolt unstuck on Saturn. (If you haven’t seen it, I left a link on Pat’s next-to-last post.) oh perfect!!! That phenomena on Saturn is very, very weird. Not having enough to do at work makes me very restless . . . which is why I cut back my hours and added the writing. So I like to stay busy even there are times when it can make me nutz . . . :-)

  • Tseka

    Ha! Ha! hej CaseyThat quip was so perfect, get a lug wrench to loosen the hex on Saturn.When i saw that picture i immediately thought of the I Ching, the book of changes

    Here is a link to Jeff Jawer’s complete New Moon cycle report. I have found after reading StarIQ for over a year, they remain a favorite. Rick Levine’s dailies are darn good too . . .New Moon in Aries Cycle
