“There is, I believe, in every disposition a tendency to some particular evil, a natural defect, which not even the best education can overcome.”
“And your defect is a propensity to hate everybody.”
“And yours,” he replied with a smile, “is willfully to misunderstand them.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
The Moon goes void-of-course this morning at 7:51 AM PDT and won’t arrive in Aries until 5:57 PM this evening. Transfers of important information are prone to confusion. We may be especially susceptible to misplaced sympathy or otherwise misunderstand what we see around us. In this atmosphere, there are strong tendencies to take unnecessary risks and assume we know more than we actually do. Although we may be focused on what those around us are doing wrong, we’ll do better to cautiously consider what we can do right. The need for balance and more thorough consideration becomes apparent once the Moon arrives in Aries and makes a stabilizing sextile to Saturn.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Although this week’s New Moon (2:28 AM PDT 4° Aries) does not occur until early Tuesday morning, the energy is building well before that, as we begin the week on Sunday. The energetic, growing power of Aries is unleashed under Tuesday’s Aries New Moon in close conjunction with Chiron, sending out waves of enduring, determined, individual initiative. Aries is ruled by Mars — which is tightly conjunct perceptive Pallas, expansive Jupiter, and transformative Pluto throughout the week. The powerful energy that is unleashed requires enormous amounts of self-control, along with inspired, determined, individual effort and awareness. Underneath the unleashing of the unrestrained, independent growing power of Aries there are whispers of the long-forming Saturn-Uranus square. Although this important aspect will not perfect until the middle of next year, there are clues this week, pointing to the developing, dramatic conflict between individual freedom and the need for guidelines, structure and stabilizing controls. In essence, this week represents a powerfully creative beginning that is being shepherded under the guidance of Chiron, conjunct the Aries New Moon. With awareness, we will learn the lessons of individual, personal self-control that recognizes the importance of understanding the significance of our actions within a broader context. The Aries energy may feel quite destabilizing during the early part of the week. However, there are some stabilizing elements that emerge by Thursday, providing a sense of purpose — a sense of mission — although there are also lingering elements of rigidity that keep us off awkwardly off balance.
Activity is heightened on Sunday, supported by endurance and courage. However, the Moon’s conjunction with Neptune in the evening keeps our view somewhat cloudy. The Moon is void-of-course for much of the day Monday. Sympathy may be misplaced, and confusion surrounds the transmission of important information. The Aries New Moon on Tuesday sends out wave after wave of powerful energy. Self-control is required to properly channel and effectively make use of the surges that are felt. Energy continues to move out in all directions on Wednesday. Individual, personal concerns need to be understood within a broader context. Some reassuring sense of stability is fostered on Thursday, but we need to guard against rigidity and remain prepared to expect the unexpected. Intuition feeds a powerful sense of destiny, purpose, and mission on Friday, providing a further sense of stability. There is an even more apparent need for self-control on Saturday as levels of commitment and determination are fed by intense emotions. There is some potential for hostility, standoffs, or showdowns.
