New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Aries

Wild times often demand wilder behavior ~ wild, meaning breaking free of the tame, safe places and behaviors that no longer work for us while learning to trust more deeply the autonomy of our wild hearts. I had a seminal dream in March that showed me how timelines and events would greatly accelerate come May 2017, implying opportunities would appear that we didn’t think we were quite prepared for. Yet, in truth, we have been preparing for these shifts for many years. This New SolLunar cycle in sidereal courageous, initiating Aries mirrors this potential acceleration as well as the need to act, sooner than later. The key with Aries is to use the strength of your will and willpower for self-mastery, rather than dominating and seeking to lord over others. A choice is at hand for many. After Mercury turns direct May 3, the pondering of the past three weeks that took place in your inner world will begin to take concrete shape in your outer world.

For this entire SolLunar Cycle, I am pleased to post new spring watercolors by my friend, Sue Cederholm. You can view and purchase her many inspiring, colorful art forms at Inspired Wild Designs. Thank you, Sue!


ECLIPSE MINI-READINGS: I am offering mini-readings for $44 (a number associated with living your Mastery on Earth) from now until the end of August. In this short reading, I will let you know where this historic Solar Eclipse is taking place in your personal chart, which helps identify where and how these dynamic energies are encouraging you already, NOW, to step out of one life and into the next exciting phase. Please send me an email if that interests you. Thank you!

NOTE: I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which will include the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which will include the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). I will add periodic updates throughout each post, so check back throughout these two week segments for current additions. Working with the natural unfolding of time and supportive cosmic energy of each unique SolLunar Cycle, you will find your life flow with more ease and grace. In addition, my interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments. You can read about my unique way of interpreting astrology at this link: EarthWord SkyWord sidereal readings. Even NASA is onboard now with the sidereal zodiac!


Here is a list of New Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza from LunarPlanner:

“Beginning the Sprouting Phase of the Lunar Cycle, a new theme emerges, a new idea or concept sprouts forth. This is an inner message, an impulse expressing from a field of all possibilities deep within the unconscious mind. Often this process is one of discovery, slowly revealing a simple theme over a day or two, or it may be quite clear and specific, even suggesting a major life change. The New Moon is a perfect time for meditation or a quite walk—to go within self and listen.”


Here’s a picture from Star Walk of the New SolLunar cycle in sidereal Aries:

Wed April 26

New SolLunar Cycle in Aries: When both the Sun and Moon join forces in Aries, sparks are flying, impatience can be on the rise, and a willingness to demand change happen sooner than later are all part of the emotional mix of today. The first day of a New SolLunar Cycle sets the tone for the coming month, so these themes will dominate the coming four weeks. It will be a time for many to take a leap of faith. These energies provide more fuel for certain infernos currently smoldering around the Earth, so keep your prayers and intentions for calmer and cooler heads (Aries’s body association) to prevail.

Moon in Aries sextile Neptune in Aquarius: This aspect provides a calmer energy to this new beginning, awakening our imaginations to seek creative and compassionate solutions to conflicts or projects.

Thu April 27

Moon/Ceres conjunction in Taurus: This aspect can bring news to people about real estate and the possibility of housing options popping up. It’s a sensual aspect given the nature of Taurus, a sign that likes comfort and comfort food, so you might give in to a sudden craving today. Give thanks to those who bring both financial and emotional security to your life.

Fri April 28

Moon/Mars Taurus: To be emotionally passionate, driven, combative are various elements of this lineup, which happens first thing this morning. Choose wisely how you will use this dynamo. Heated, direct discussions involving finances might arise.

Mercury retrograde/Uranus conjunct in Aries: Suddenly, things become very clear, or a communication comes out of the blue to guide you forward to your next step. When these two unite again on May 9, after Mercury has turned direct, that’s when the real action may take place. Be open to receiving the message/s today.

Sat April 29

Moon in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces: Tomorrow, the rare exact square of healing Chiron to stern Saturn takes place, potentially bringing conflicts to a head. Events today might serve as a trigger to what might happen. The Gemini Moon is talkative, curious, or sees things as black and white, right and wrong. Some are dogmatic in how they see the world and others choose to be diplomatic. You can be of genuine benefit to help ease tensions for the many hot zones of conflict happening on our planet by visualizing positive diplomacy between all parties.

Sun April 30

Chiron in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius: Chiron often appears as a healing bridge or a healing crisis that ultimately brings about a new reality. Saturn can represent the status quo, or a desire to reform the current structures/infrastructures of our world. Bridges might literally collapse or be built today. Solutions that are lasting must involve both visionary ideas (Sagittarius) and compassionate feelings (Pisces), building bridges between the heart and mind.

Moon in Gemini square Pallas Athene in Pisces: This aspect is excellent for deciding which of the many choices presenting themselves holds the most promise or interest. It’s great for planning ahead, organizing details for a future event.

Missed Last Week’s Post? Here it is! 

Mon May 1 ~ May Day

Moon/Vesta conjunction in Cancer: Today, a holy day, marks a moment in which our Sun has reached the halfway point (in our Northern Hemisphere) between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. Events can appear that help you know you are almost there toward meeting a future destiny you have been desiring. With the emotional Moon and fiercely focused Vesta aligning in Cancer, issues linked to home, real estate, caregiving, food, parenting may require attention today.
