Saturday night, the Moon in Aries conjoins Chiron, sextiles Saturn, and conjoins Mercury. The active, fiery mood seeks pleasure like its on a mission. It’s not subtle.
Venus also squares Pluto, active all weekend and exact after Sunday’s new moon. It increases the intensity of that pleasure seeking. This can be delightful and fun or it can be intimidating and overboard. Control is possible, and so is manipulation. Protecting yourself is a good idea when passions are so thoroughly inflamed.

The wrench in the spokes is Pluto. Sun-Moon-Venus as a lovely and simple start is complicated and blocked by Pluto reaching from the underworld. Jupiter is fortunate, but Jupiter also inflates. If there’s rot or violence or putrescence, Jupiter here gives it velocity.
It also provides the energy to power out of a skid. Look for the skid and POWER OUT. Look for it to be either physical or mental. It can be either or both. When you see it, do the thing. It’s as simple as that. The preponderance of Aries energy is ready to go when that decision is made.
This is a fresh start new moon with all that entails. We bring a new cycle with a yearly emotional commitment to action. It’s spring and we start over. Leave the past in the past. Wait till after the new moon to make your commitments in love. Make sure that what you’re starting is NEW. Old things can be renewed, but only if the love is fresh and real and viable. Don’t commit to something dead: Watch for new growth after the new moon.
Don’t sit and spoon in a dead tree.
