New Moon in Aries
March 24, 2020 – New Moon at Aries 4°12’, 5:28 am EDT.
There is a subtle message of kindness in this New Moon. All the planets are held within a harmonious relationship – a trine - between a Jupiter/Pluto/Mars conjunction and Venus. In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Venus is Isis – Queen Mother of Heaven. Solace from the storm can be found in the loving arms of the Goddess.
We do need solace. With Saturn/Sobek now in Aquarius, the feeling of restriction is strong, accompanied by increased uncertainty. Saturn is now in a challenging relationship – a square – to Uranus/Wadjet, the Cobra Kundalini Queen. Our world is unpredictably chaotic and we feel trapped in circumstances beyond our control.
It is important that we keep up our spirits, encourage each other and act from a place of hope and vision. And there must be space to mourn that which is dying and will never return. A way of life is gone, and we do not know how it will be replaced. The Dark Moon is a time to go inward and release that which no longer serves.
During this Dark Moon window (March 23, 24, 25), take time for introspection. Feel your feelings – whatever they are. It’s OK to be afraid. To want to be held. This becomes even more poignant if there are no arms to hold us. The necessity of social distancing means there are fewer hugs, fewer comforting touches from others. It is natural to have feelings about all that we are losing.
This Aries New Moon is aligned with Chiron, the Wounded Healer. The greatest healing we can give ourselves is to recognize our pain. Through that acknowledgment, we open space for something new to be born. Go within, be in the silence and seek comfort from the loving presence of Isis. Rest in her rainbow wings. Open your heart and receive compassion and love from Isis, Queen Mother of Heaven.
