“T-4.II.4. Think of the love of animals for their offspring, and the need they feel to protect them. That is because they regard them as part of themselves. No one dismisses something he considers part of himself. You react to your ego much as God does to His creations, with love, protection and charity. Your reactions to the self you made are not surprising. In fact, they resemble in many ways how you will one day react to your real creations, which are as timeless as you are. The question is not how you respond to the ego, but what you believe you are. Belief is an ego function, and as long as your origin is open to belief you are regarding it from an ego viewpoint. When teaching is no longer necessary you will merely know God. Belief that there is another way of perceiving is the loftiest idea of which ego thinking is capable. That is because it contains a hint of recognition that the ego is not the Self.”

This morning’s New Moon (2:28 AM PDT 4° Aries) conjunct Chiron, sends powerful energy out in all directions. The question to be determined is how capable we are of properly channeling that energy. Chiron’s presence offers determination and a pioneering sense of individual initiative. The Moon carries the light from last night’s sextile to Saturn, which certainly offers important opportunities for thoughtful consideration and careful planning. Mars rules this morning’s New Moon from Capricorn and is powerfully perched in close alliance with Pallas, Jupiter, and Pluto. Today’s activating energy cannot really be over-estimated — but requires inspired, determined, individual efforts. Any inherent structural weaknesses are suddenly apparent and should be addressed swiftly before trying to move forward.
The Aries new moon arrives this morning, and we’re ready for a whole new beginning. A new moon is a time when there is no moonlight in the sky. It’s a time to move inward to find insight and inner guidance. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. It represents life force in its rawest, most primal form. It is also the sign of the self, and this is a profound rebirth. Pay attention to the area of your life ruled by Aries. This is a new start, and there’s new life taking seed.
Make time to check in and align with your innermost self. Ask yourself what moves you. What brings you alive? What fills you with a sense of drive, passion, and purpose? Who are you? What do you want? Be honest with yourself now, and make time for conscious self-reflection, meditation, solitude, and introspection. Listen to the answers that arise.
