We have a string of train cars lined up in Capricorn – Pallas/Jupiter/Pluto/Mars – ruled by Saturn. Saturn is one sign ahead in Aquarius, moving into square with Aquarius ruler Uranus in Taurus (a revolution or shock to resources). Early Tuesday morning, the Aries Moon sextiles Saturn before going on to conjoin the Sun: the new moon in Aries.
Monday, the Moon finishes up in Pisces, sextiling each Cap placement in turn before its nighttime move to Aries and that Saturn sextile. Monday is the dark of the Moon with a feelin’ of forebodin’. It’s a BIG-BAM-BOOM setting up, and that train has Mars as its engine – Mars, the ruler of the new moon.
That train is composed of Mars in lead; Pluto full of power; Jupiter pulling the whistle, yelling FASTER; and Pallas Athena pulling up at the end. Pallas Athena is a gender-irrelevant warrior whose greatest power is higher intelligence and the ability to spot patterns. The train is ominous in its ability to wreak havoc. However, it is unparalleled in its potential force for… anything. Unknown but exciting.
The new moon beginning tunes to Mars and the train. Mars hearkens to Saturn… and so on. The only thing certain here is big change. It certainly looks and feels fated, but don’t let that stop you from playing your own personal part. That’s personal control, that is. Take it. Do you remember how that feels? Many of us have had our personal controls ratcheted down, but have we really? As a community there’s control and restriction (Aquarius Saturn), but I have more possibilities inside my house than I could address in the rest of my life. The number of books alone is staggering. Some actions remain in the personal realm. Taken as a whole they create momentum in the collective. What will your part be?
Tuesday morning, the Aries Moon passes over the Aries Sun and heads over Chiron and Black Moon Lilith. It’s a new cycle of action. Even though action may feel restricted right now, it’s also unbelievably potent. It’s potentially explosive with Saturn square Uranus. But that will unfold over time too. Start new and learn something. Heal yourself. Take back your inner wild person, and use that to advantage your mood and sense of self.
Wednesday, the Sun makes its exact conjunction to Chiron and the Moon in Aries squares the Capricorn stellium. It’s possible we get increased restrictions, but it’s more likely we chafe at the general lack of broad movement and continued restriction regardless of its level (increase/decrease/same). A Mars mood needs action and movement and physical challenge. So find some to burn that off. Have you got something to teach others? It’s a good time to be helpful as that also burns up the excess Mars energy as well as stimulating ego health.
Thursday, the Moon finishes up in Aries and moves to Taurus. It immediately squares Saturn then moves into conjunction with Uranus. By this point, you’re probably fully aware of what’s missing from your home base and feeling the sting of that lack. Now is the time to experiment as the Moon moves into sextile with Pisces Mercury. Necessity is the progenitor of invention and improvement.
All week long, Venus moves closer into trine with Jupiter, exact Friday night. Desire is increased; we want it all. Friday’s Taurus Moon sextiles Neptune then heads in conjunction with Jupiter, lighting up Venus. The longing is penetrating and the hunger is pronounced. Desire is rich and expansive. It’s possible to get yourself into trouble over it, but the urges are compelling and delightfully tantalizing.
Where does the 4 degree Aries new moon hit your chart? How are you faring under 0 degree Saturn strictures?
