The dynamic, head-strong energy of this Aries Sun is at odds with the desire for diplomacy, brought by the Blue Moon in Libra. We want to take action and make things happen! But the position of this moon also strives to avoid conflict. Finding a productive balance may prove difficult.
Tigereye or Tiger Iron stones are recommended, as well as Blue Agate (or other throat chakra stones) to help us find effective words, rather than confrontational ones. Also, calming blue candles can be dressed with frankincense oil, chamomile oil, or clary sage oil. (Our “Peace” candle, from Coventry Creations, might also be an appropriate choice.) These oils, or the actual herbs along with salt, can be added to a bath for a ritual soak.
Focus on change you are trying to affect; clear your mind of other chatter and distraction. Envision the change already in place, as if it were the normal way of things. Feel the relief of this successful change, and breathe this sensation into your core. When you pull the plug, all blockage to this change will be drawn down the drain along with the cleansing water.
In addition to the Blue Moon, we also have a very strong conjunction between Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. The key words are “Strategy” and “Purpose.” This conjunction pairs well with the Blue Moon in Libra, which we just discussed. If we can stay focused on the goal, and stay on plan, success is assured.
Add to this the sextile between a Scorpio Jupiter, and a Capricorn Pluto, and you have some real magic! This is the combination that brings big social change (or a bold change to your role within that paradigm). This is the perfect time to focus on the world we want to live in, and the steps to get there, rather than regretting what has been.
