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.
