Gonna Burn Your Name Right Across the Sky- New Moon in Aries

The New Moon isn’t until Monday morning 12.32am Sydney time, but this one needs some preparation!

There are a heap of statistics that re out there telling us how many people break their New Year Resolutions. There are a heap more that want to estimate how many people fail to honour them… same thing really? Either way the number is estimated at anything between 60-88%, depending on the source you read. Even though I have this theory that 94.5% of all statistics are made up, I tend to believe that these numbers are pretty close to the mark. But Astrology, or more specifically the New Moon in Aries, is here to give you another shot at it.

Whether yours is to lose weight, quit smoking, reduce debt, cut back on other nasties or accelerate your 5 year plan with a 2 year deadline, the chances are that sitting here now in April, things have fallen off the tracks.

Just when is the right time to utter those fateful words “This year I will….” remains up for conjecture.  Should you do it before during or after the New Years Eve party? Should you say it exactly on the 1st, last or whatever stroke of midnight? Should you take your time to think about your goal (and for the after effects of the NYE party to wear off) and make your resolution for the 1st New Moon of the year- in Capricorn? Should you wait still further until Chinese New Year, or even the astrological New Year when the Sun moves into Aries at the end of March?

I have read a number of blogs and articles recently suggesting that the best time to make a New Year Resolution is actually now… well in the next couple of days with the New Moon in Aries- the 1st New Moon of the astrological year. And this certainly makes a lot of sense. During the Balsamic phase we get rid of everything we no longer need, perform whatever banishing rituals we need to perform and wipe the slate clean. At the New Moon, we start the cycle again.

The New Moon energy is always one of new beginnings. Just like in the Powderfinger song:

Gonna burn your name right across the sky so I’ll never forget what the feeling’s like.

A New Moon, especially an Aries New Moon turns the sky into a great big empty blackboard that you can write your intentions on… I love that. And there is nothing quite as new as an Aries New Moon.

The Aries energy is one of new, almost childlike enthusiasm to explore, to be the first, to start something brilliant. And first things can never be repeated- you can’t share a first kiss twice, or go somewhere for the first time again or get on a plane for the first time…well, you get the idea.The Aries energy is the New Moon energy. Most importantly, Aries New Moon energy is about you. So right now, there is nothing more exciting and new and first than you and your potential.

History, it seems, agrees that the best time to make a New Year Resolution is in the northern Spring. I read a column by a Dr Rick Miller (from a University of Nebraska Kearney online publication) who wrote that the earliest recording of New Year Resolutions was by the Babylonians 4000 years ago. It seems, however, that the most common goal of the ancient Babylonians was not to shed 20 kgs or be nice to that girl/guy in the next partition- it was….wait for it… to return borrowed farm equipment.

This New Moon is absolutely super charged. Conjunct a Jupiter that is just bursting at the seams with optimism to crash through boundaries and grow, grow , grow and opposite Saturn who is reminding us that structures need to be respected to enable us to do what we need to do. Structure and stability is all very well, but Saturn can also bring fear and restraint and a warning to be careful and not grow or expand too quickly. The right pace is somewhere in the middle, as of course, it always is.

To make life even more interesting Mars and Uranus are conjunct in the 1st degree of Aries. Mars is particularly energised by his recent move into Aries and is ready to do major mischief with Uranus. If you are feeling trapped in any way, there may be one hell of a temptation thrown your way. Exciting? In fact so exciting I had to post this a few days early!

So, for those of you with next doors lawnmower, shovel, trailer or whipper snipper that you borrowed aeons ago from your best mate (and you know who you are…), make like the Babylonians and include in your First New Moon of the Astrological Year Resolution to give it back…and then grab what is on offer with both hands- without that whipper snipper in the back shed, you will have plenty of room.

Mercury is stationary and will be officially retrograde by the time Sydneysiders are munching on their breakfast toast tomorrow. If you want to know all the rules and usual bits about Mercury retrogrades, check out Don’t Look Back in Anger. Over the next couple of weeks be prepared to stand back and look back at … whatever.

You might get news of old friends, old loves, someone coming back into you life that you have been missing. You might get a chance to review, re-do, replenish or re-balance. You may find yourself also doing more than your fair share of rework or repeating old mistakes or retreading old paths. And let’s face it, is there really anything so wrong with that? There are some mistakes I have made that I would love to repeat, and paths that I would go off the main road to tread again. Then again, there is also the opportunity to make the outcome different this time. With Venus in Pisces, perhaps it could be … These are just some of the reasons why Mercury retrograde isn’t all bad, and can actually be quite cool- as long as you remembered to back up your PC (which I haven’t) and double checked appointments (nope) and re-confirmed all travel bookings (sorry)…

In any case, for people like me with a crappy Mercury, essentially it just means the rest of the world is now thinking like a Piscean with a retrograde Mercury in the 12th house- I live with it every day, so what are you all making such a fuss about? In any case the Universe is easing us into it with a Pisces Moon just a couple of hours after the official retrograde start. So, not only can you be thinking like a Pisces, you can also feel like one too…scary thought? Not when it is situation normal for those of us with these positions natally.

Jupiter and Saturn are still having their little tug of war across the divide. Jupiter’s enthusiasm is waning already, so he will soon be on his way. Saturn is still trying to remind him of all the things that could possibly go wrong (he calls it structure and caution, Jupiter reckons it is out & out fear mongering & is in whatever mode…).

With the Moon moving into Pisces we are also moving into the Balsamic phase- that time where we get rid of the old to make room for the new. Whether you need to de-clutter your kitchen junk drawer, get rid of those “friends” on Facebook that aren’t really or remove the habits and thoughts that are holding you back, the next few days is crucial. Monday mornings (Sydney time) New Moon in Aries is an absolute… I can’t find the words to describe what it is…but it has everything…and more!

I’m excited for so many reasons, in fact so excited that I will post the New Moon post early…just to add some optimism into the Mercury retrograde gloom & doom.

Don’t Look Back in Anger- Mercury Retrograde April 2011

Mercury has slowed right down and is getting ready to turn retrograde.

Now we all know the basics about Mercury retrograde:

  • The planet isn’t really going backwards, it just appears that way from where we stand here on Earth
  • During any retrograde cycle of any planet we bring our attentions within. The energy of the planet is intensified, and that energy is brought within. In that case of Mercury that means how we think, how we transmit messages and how messages are communicated and understood around us
  • this is your signal to slow down, go within, review, revise, rewind. We review and revise in our head the nature of the area of life this retrograde is happening in for us. With our brains occupied in a different way we lose focus on what is happening around us- and that is when things, generally shitty things happen.

We know all about the re words:

  • Take the time to recharge your batteries
  • Revise your goals
  • Review your bright ideas
  • Regain your faith in the future
  • Recommit to habits, goals, the things you need to recommit to
  • Reconnect with colleagues & friends you haven’t seen or spoken to for some time
  • Renew and refresh whatever is jaded and old
  • Revisit places, books, movies that mean something to you
  • Rest and relax

We know the type of things Mercury retrogrades can impact:

  • Appointment times
  • Travel times & arrangements
  • Computers, phones & other electronic devices
  • Getting to & from places
  • Contracts and other documents

And we know how to mitigate the possible damage:

  • Re-confirm appointments
  • Check & re-check your travel arrangements
  • Insure your luggage and tickets and make sure you have copies of all travel documents- preferably not in your bag
  • Avoid mechanical problems, by making sure your car services are up to date
  • Back up computers
  • Avoid purchasing any major technology over this period
  • Avoid signing contracts, but if you have to, make sure you have read & re-read all the fine print
  • If you must commence a new project, do the scoping work carefully- and seriously people, we should be doing this anyway!
  • If you have any changes going “live” or being implemented, test, re-test, regression test, test the back out, test the install & test again. Test.

We even know the people most likely to be impacted by the retrograde cycle:

  • People with strong Mercury charts eg people with the Sun, Moon, Ascendant or Mercury in Mercury ruled signs ie Gemini or Virgo.
  • People with these planets in the 3rd house
  • People who have the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Ascendant in the sign which is receiving the retrograde
  • People who have planets or chart points at the position where Mercury stations- either to go retrograde or direct.

Essentially those who have a crappy Mercury (such as my own- the worst Mercury in history) tend (with some exceptions) to escape relatively lightly. Why? Because natally our Mercury operates in the same way as when it is retrograde- we review and revise and go into our own heads as part of a normal day.

So, what makes a bad (and when I say bad I don’t mean evil bad, I mean that it works differently to the way Mercury is supposed to work…personally mine is crappy, but it suits me- if you know what I mean)  Mercury?:

  • Mercury in Pisces (check)
  • Mercury in the 12th house (check)
  • Mercury tightly aspecting Neptune
  • Mercury retrograde natally (check)

This year all the Mercury retrogrades take place in fire signs. This changes the playing field a little. First cab off the rank is Aries (of course…).

This means that:

  • People who have the Sun, Moon, Ascendant or Mercury in Aries will be impacted by this retrograde
  • If you have planets or chart points (eg Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant or IC) at 24 Aries (where Mercury stations to go retrograde) or 12 Aries (where he stations to go direct), you will also feel this one.

Fire Mercury is assertive, impulsive, demonstrative and energetic. Aries Mercury is all of these things plus you can add combative and aggressive to the mix. So, the types of things we may expect (in addition to the above) are:

  • Decisions made impulsively may be regretted later
  • Discussions & communication to be more combative & aggressive than usual
  • Ideas come fast & furious but may be abandoned just as quickly
  • Tempers may flare quicker than usual for seemingly insignificant reasons

So, some extra Aries type stuff to remember:

  • It doesn’t matter if you lose an argument- especially if you hadn’t thought the consequences through in the 1st place. You are not always right.
  • Sometimes an idea is actually pretty crappy and has no chance of ever working. Walk away from it without flexing your muscles in the process.
  • Save the temper for something worth fighting over.
  • Just because you’re bored is no reason to pick a fight.

For all of us, check out where 12-24 Aries falls in your chart. This is the part of life where you need to do extra re stuff. As an example, in my case this transit is in my 2nd house. Mercury will pass back across Venus and station direct exactly (to the minute) on the cusp of my 2nd house. Values, ideals, money & possession are the key words around the 2nd house. Mercury natally rules the relationship and home sectors in my chart and is in Pisces in the 12th house. Venus rules the 8th (debts, other peoples money etc).

This retrograde period I intend to spend some time on budgets. I know I have major changes on a financial front coming in the next 6-9 months, so a re-think and some discussion with my husband regarding our finances & spending patterns is definitely in order.

This is all happening as Jupiter is tearing through my 2nd house…and Jupiter transits of the 2nd we know are renowned for over indulgence, over-spending, over-reaching and over-commitment of personal resources!

With so many material changes on the horizon, I will also be doing some good hard thinking over just what is really important to me…and finishing some UFPs (UnFinished Projects) around the house…I have a mind to be doing some landscape reconstruction in the near future, and still haven’t re-decorated our bedroom…and Five Foot Nothing is talking about re-doing hers as well….

Where does Aries fall in your chart? What are your plans for this particular retrograde? With the fire energy being enhanced and amplified by the recent battles for supremacy between the Sun and Pluto, and Saturn and Jupiter, perhaps frustrations and obstacles coming out of these transits will have a bearing on how you spend the next few weeks? Is there any anger you need to let go of? I’d love to know…

Daily Planets Wednesday 30/3/11 Mercury Retrograde- Let It Be

Here we go again. That time every few months where computers spontaneously contract viruses and dump files. When travel plans get stuffed up and appointments are missed. When arguments blow up out of all proportion to the original misunderstood or clumsily communicated message.

We all know the rules, but I will be posting a refresher and some hints specific to this retrograde shortly.

Rather than running scared, what about trying a different tack…what about just letting it happen? If we are seriously honest with ourselves, viruses infect our computers because we have either neglected to immunise it or somehow inadvertently let it in (such as I did last week). Dumped files only matter if we have forgotten to back up and lost luggage is only a problem if we have failed to take out travel insurance. Actually, I take that one back, lost luggage is always a pain in the arse, but, with insurance, an opportunity perhaps to buy new shoes?

Arguments explode because we haven’t taken sufficient care to either think about the message and how to communicate or we haven’t thought sufficiently about the possible ramifications of that message and the feelings of the recipient. In short, shit happens. We can blame Mercury, we can blame the Universe, we can take responsibility or we can let it go.

It’s actually OK to be so stressed and strung out that you need to take a step back and go within to re-assess your work/life balance, your go forward strategy or the brilliant idea that is quickly looking to become brown sloppy stuff on the fan.

It’s OK to ask for help, to go back to the drawing board or to admit you are wrong (Scorpio and Aries- I’m looking at you…).

Revision isn’t just something that is best left to Virgo. We can all use this time to look at the setbacks and obstacles that may have been presented over the last few days, few weeks, few months, whatever (depending on how reliable your rear vision mirror is…me, I have old eyes and can’t see that far without glasses) to decide how we are going to tackle them going forward.

Mercury is retrograde officially at 6.47am (Sydney time) 31/3/11

Daily Planets Sunday 27/3/11 Fantasy

Elizabeth Taylor.jpg

As I write the Venus/Neptune conjunction is almost exact. And I am dreaming of travel…hardly surprising given that natally Neptune is in the 9th for me & trine Jupiter…I dream of travel a lot.

Fantasy and day dreams are wonderful in that no one else can own them or destroy them. You can do anything, go anywhere, be with anyone. The whole point about fantasy is that it isn’t real. And don’t we all need a little unreality every so often? This is particularly the case under a Capricorn Moon when duty and responsibility are so incredibly front & centre. Growing up, growing old, being mature, doing what you have to, thinking of your responsibilities and commitments and roles…that is all Saturn and Capricorn stuff. It is all real life. The structure represented by Saturn, the recognition that hard work is essential in order to achieve is what turns dreams and fantasy into something concrete. But today, for now, while Venus is holding hands and smooching Neptune, I want to forget about practicalities and indulge in possibilities…what isn’t now, but possibly could be…and what is best left in the head locked away (yep, this is happening in the 12th house for me :)). The Capricorn Moon is perhaps a timely reminder that some dreams are best kept as dreams.

Over on Facebook, my friend AstroSparkles is moderating a discussion on fantasy men & women- the partners that you dream about. It has been a bit of fun to read, even though I have never really done the whole celebrity crush thing myself. My contribution was not in relation to the celebrity as such, but the characters they played- how on earth could Julia Roberts think of “keeping her balance” when Javier Bardem is offering her a ride in a boat to some island in Bali??????

When I engage with a movie or a book, those characters become real…and I guess that is the whole point. Hollywood is really a Neptune concept- the glamour is both illusion and delusion, with the reality being something very different. Point in case being Elizabeth Taylor whose beauty and self destruction always represented Hollywood and tinseltown to me. A very Neptunian Piscean, she played roles all her life. Her chart is below (source is Solarfire), but the biggest thing that strikes me is Neptune at the very top of her chart opposing her Pisces Sun.  She was Hollywood…may she rest in peace.

La Vie En Rose- Venus in Pisces

 

A Fairytale in the middle of New York. Pic by me.
A Fairytale in the middle of New York. Pic by me.

Once upon a time there was a magical movie about a chauffeurs’ daughter who had made an occupation out of being in love with her employers’ son. He is handsome and mega rich and exciting, but he doesn’t know that she exists. So she runs away to Paris to forget him and find herself.

When she returns home, with a new wardrobe and a new haircut, even though he is newly engaged he finally notices her and she feels that all her dreams are finally coming true. His crusty and even more mega-rich older brother attempts to distract her in order to preserve the potential business partnership that is a by-product of the engagement.

He recognises early that material wealth means nothing to her- she can’t be bought. Instead he plays to her sympathies- he confides in her invented tales about how lost he is, how misunderstood he is, about how he wishes he could escape to Paris, how he dreams of being saved. Referred to as the worlds’ only living heart donor, his idea of a relationship is letting his date order dessert, yet, as he talks, he realises that what he is saying is actually true. As she listens she feels sorry for him. As she gets to know him she realises that her childhood love was a fantasy. She sees in him her reality and saves him from himself.

The movie is Sabrina- originally made with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart and later re-done with Harrison Ford as Linus Larraby and Julia Ormond as Sabrina Fairchild.

Sabrina had been in love with a fantasy all her life- Venus in Pisces. To escape reality she flees to Paris- the ultimate Piscean city. We see the romance of long walks, fairy lights and the Bateaux-Mouches as they glide along the Seine.  We hear the Edith Piaf classic La Vie en Rose- loosely translated living life through rose coloured glasses- playing from a Parisian cafe.

Sabrina was named for Sabrina Fair/Fayre, the character in a poem by Milton who came to save the Mariner. As Linus finds himself falling under her spell, Sabrina shows him an escape from his dry, dusty and emotionless life. Sabrina the Saviour is Venus in Pisces. Sabrina saves him.

Venus in Pisces is romantic idealism, but can heal through love. Venus in Pisces is devoted, super sensitive, yet can also be evasive and reluctant to commit. Venus in Pisces will love you like you have never been loved before, but will have difficulty in telling you how she feels. Venus in Pisces will place you on a pedestal and love you forever, yet may still find it possible to be unfaithful on a physical level. To Venus in Pisces, nothing matters more than how it feels deep inside.

Incredibly intuitive, Venus in Pisces will express herself with meaningful glances, a hug that lasts just a little longer than usual, a kiss that grazes ever closer to the lips. She will rarely make the first move, but send you sign after sign, lying in bed at night building fantasies in her head about what she should have said, but couldn’t. This is why water signs work so well with each other- they can understand the concept of “more than words”- even though the actual getting together may involve months of hidden messages, cryptic conversations and meaningful looks. Air is frustrated by this, seeing it as an inability to communicate. Earth sees it as a waste of practical effort and Fire just wants to get down to the shagging part…OK, I am simplifying…

While she may not say much, Venus in Pisces has a way of insinuating herself into your life and before you know it that friend who has meant so much as a fun companion suddenly means so much more. Venus in Pisces often doesn’t know what she wants, but goes with the flow until the feeling is given definition by another. She has the ability to morph easily into whatever and whoever you need her to be, but will wiggle out of your grasp and off the hook if you attempt to control her. Whilst she is happy to be taken care of and yearns to be looked after and loved exclusively she will seek to escape any traps you set for her.

Venus in Pisces can also be the quintessential damsel in distress – the little girl lost who needs to be rescued and looked after and the helpless man who needs to be mothered and picked up after. This one dimensional view is the shadow side of Venus in Pisces- a tendency to not take responsibility for your own actions.

Venus in Pisces has secrets- deep, emotional secrets. Twelfth house secrets. Secrets that you can only find out with the right key for the right door. In this way she is a mesmerising challenge- just when you think you know her or understand her, the shutters come down and another mask goes on. This is all part of the mystique and frustration associated with being involved with Venus in Pisces.

All of these qualities are shared by Pisces women and anyone who has Venus in close aspect to Neptune- in particular the conjunction, or Venus in the 12th house.

Men with Venus in Pisces will be looking for a woman with Piscean characteristics. She may be Pisces, she may have planets filling up her 12th house, she may have a Pisces Moon or other planets closely aspecting Neptune. She will be emotional, sensitive and intuitive… someone who will see into his soul and understand him without him needing to say the words.

He wants someone to share his dreams with and someone who will dream with him. He wants someone who will share her emotions with him and who he trusts enough to open his heart to. He will understand that sometimes you just need to cry and need to be held until the tears have stopped and left mascara stains on his shirt. He wants someone he can feel with. He wants someone who he can save and who will save him.

Above all, Venus in Pisces believes in fairytales, trusts that there can be a happy ever after and wants to live the dream- La Vie en Rose.

Hold me close and hold me fast

The magic spell you cast-

This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs

And though I close my eyes

I see la vie en rose.

When you press me to your heart

I’m in a world apart

A world where roses bloom.

And when you speak

Angels sing from above-

Everyday words turn into love songs.

Give your heart and soul to me and

Life will always be

La vie en rose.

Lyrics from La Vie En Rose– although I used the Tony Bennet & KD Lang version, so even if the translation is incorrect, it is oh so beautiful.

The Style Files- Venus in Aquarius

Friday is ruled by Venus, so I figure, let’s make Fridays about Venus things? My version of TGIF.

St Kilda Esplanade Market. Pic by me.
St Kilda Esplanade Market. Pic by me.

Five Foot Nothing surfaced out of her room late last Sunday morning. As usual she looked a picture…a rather abstract picture. Her outfit consisted of a pair of sunflower print boxer style pyjama shorts, long mismatched striped socks that I bought in New York last year, and the piece de resistance, a Bintang beer singlet top I bought back from Bali. The only thing missing was ugg boots.

Strangely, whilst none of it worked together, on her it was perfect. Five Foot Nothing has Venus in Aquarius. And, with Uranus conjunct Venus, her style is doubly Aquarian…something which will, no doubt, cause my husband some amount of angst over the years- “you’re letting her go out in that?”

My Mum, an Aquarius Venus, had a way of making clay splattered paint shirts with gumboots look right, and still rocks jeans with riding boots in a way that would look ridiculous on anyone else. Seriously, no one but my mother could get away with a t-shirt decorated in bling with the slogan “London, Paris, New York, Tumbarumba”…best not to ask.

I went to school with someone very similar. I will always remember the night she wore a skirt made out of the afternoon paper to a school dance, topped off with knee high black boots and a vintage tartan jacket- back before the phrase “vintage” was invented. I wrote about her style in Breaking Free.  

The big thing I recall about Jacinta all those years ago, was how much she resented anyone trying to follow her. For most people, imitation is a compliment of sorts, for Venus in Aquarius it can be just plain annoying & an indication that your individual style has become mainstream. She was always on the lookout for the next offbeat band, the next rebellious style. Looking back it was like she was trying too hard to be different as if her difference would give her a credibility that any sort of conformity would not.

More recently an (now ex) acquaintance with Venus in Aquarius showed similar traits. Whilst her & I never really got on & operated in an environment of mutual envy (there was a Moon/Pluto thing going on), I admired the way she could put outfits together that simply shouldn’t have worked. At times, though, there was almost a try hard element at work. It was almost as though she was trying to reduce the essence of her more conforming Capricorn Sun by projecting a style that made a completely different sort of statement.

I recall one time she had a bag which she had bought at a Melbourne market. When she noticed I had one by the same designer at home her version of the bag never came out to play again. My having discovered the designer first removed all interest she had in the bag…which was actually nicer than my one. Oh well…

Which brings me to another important point about Venus in Aquarius, open-mindedness. Whilst she is open minded about style and always looking for the next new thing, she can also be found stubbornly fixed to something which was cutting edge 20 years ago. Having said that, Venus in Aquarius doesn’t attach easily, and tends not to commit herself to one specific designer.

Venus/Uranus contacts in the chart tell a similar style story. Whilst Venus has her own style, if there is a close Uranus contact, an Aquarian flavour will overlay it. This is especially true of the Venus/Uranus conjunction. Venus/Uranus trines will incorporate elements of the energy with little effort, but the more challenging aspects- the squares, oppositions & inconjuncts- represent more of a struggle. It is in these that Uranus may duke it out with Venus for supremacy, resulting in a style which is either inconsistent, a little janky or rebellious for the sake of being rebellious. It doesn’t quite fit.

When Uranus is incorporated seamlessly we find little touches of brilliance- the Capricorn Venus in business wear in a skirt cut by a fabulous new designer, the Pisces Venus with crystals turned into amazing accessories, the Scorpio Venus with shots of leather through a wool jacket.

Venus in Aquarius likes to be different, to be individual. Her style is authentic to herself, and what is important is that she is free to express her style as she wishes. That may be through finding the latest designer at a local art market, or discovering vintage before anyone else, or even mixing striped socks with a tourist T-shirt.

All of which leads me back to Five Foot Nothing. With her Capricorn Ascendant and all those Aries planets, her quirky style is likely to be tempered by a need to be able to move freely (Aries) and little fuss & value for money (Capricorn Ascendant)- quite frankly she can’t really be faffed with the whole fashion thing… More importantly, she doesn’t (yet) feel the need to follow the pack or give into pressure to do so. She is happy shopping with her friends, but she is also happy not to be influenced by them.

She doesn’t jump on the bandwagon of the latest pop heart-throb (thankfully we are not subject to the same Justin Bieber mania as some other households), and was firmly in Camp Jacob while her friends were more Camp Edward (seriously Mum, the Dog Boys don’t have as many eating disorders & have much better abs…). At the end of the day, that is true individuality…and that is what Venus in Aquarius is all about.

Aries has a reputation to be great starters, but with the attention span of an active toddler on red lollies, are not the worlds’ greatest finishers. So how do they achieve their goals? My latest post for astrology.com can be found at this link.
