The moon is new in Aries (4:28 am, CT) on March 24. Aries, being the first sign in the zodiac, is concerned with beginnings. On March 19 the spring equinox occurs (10:49 pm, CT) with equal light and dark hours. This point marks the end of the long, dark winter as a spring of lighter days is leapt into! On March 21, Saturn enters Aquarius. The new moon coinciding with the equinox and Saturn changing signs emphasizes the theme of beginning anew in unknown territory.
The demolition phase of Saturn and Pluto’s conjunction is ending, asking again what structures will remain newly renovated, and what will collapse into the ground? Six planets currently transit the element of earth. The physical and the tangible, such as the body, health, money and work, take precedence.
New dynamics come into play involving rules, regulations and requirements. Are the societal structures in place supporting the people? How can society abide by rules that are more people friendly? A motivating, yet uncomfortable push for rules encompassing equality and fairness for the diversity within the group depicts the new journey.
To focus your energy on the power of the new moon and the beginnings it brings, use some of Eye of Horus’ New Moon oil in your practice. This oil blend is specifically designed to tap into the new moon’s magical energies. To connect with the earth element so prevalent in the chart, light one of Coventry Creations’ Stability candles.
