New Moon in Aries, March 27, 2017

Libra Seeking Balance

There is nothing like this New Moon at 07° 37′ Aries on 20 March 2017, 07:57 PM PDT to get the juices flowing! It is the first New Moon after the equinox and energetically it is the real beginning of Aries Season now that both the seasonal cycle and the lunar cycle are in sync.

Surprisingly enough, this is a softer version of an Aries New Moon, in part because the luminaries are widely conjunct retrograde Venus in Aries.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
