Electric Word Life ~ New Moon in Aries- April 15th, 2018


On Sunday, April 15th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the cardinal fire sign of Aries.

New Moons happen when the Sun and the Moon conjoin, blending their energies into a unified force. The power of rebirth and regeneration is enhanced at every New Moon, but this one in Aries will be particularly impactful because it comes with a special rush and push of inspired growth!

The Sun and Moon will be conjunct to Uranus, ushering in a wild and untamable spirit.

Astrologically speaking, the New Moon in Aries is the time to set the tone for the rest of the astrological year. This is a potent magical time to raise your energies high and project them towards an illuminated vision of the future.

This New Moon happens concurrently with Mercury’s station direct in Aries. Your intellectual and ideological questions have been revised and refreshed over the last three weeks. You now know what you need to put your mind towards.

Think of this year’s New Moon in Aries as being drumroll for the dawn of a totally new era! Because this New Moon is touched by a conjunction to Uranus and a square to Pluto, this is also a ritual cleansing that must be done before crossing the threshold.

Let this New Moon initiate you into a new sense of sovereignty.

It is far more than just the beginning of a new zodiacal year. This New Moon also happens two days before Chiron enters into Aries and exactly one month before Uranus leaves Aries for Taurus.

Chiron and Uranus move slowly, meaning that their shift into new signs represents the start of a new era. Chiron has been in Pisces for the last eight years and Uranus has been in Aries for seven years. Thus, this New Moon marks the beginning of a time of massive overarching shifts in the collective energies. 

There will be a shift in the collective need for healing and in the questions that guide the development of this upcoming era. Set the intention now to adapt knowing that the spirit of this New Moon is one of triumph over adversity.

With so much pivoting on cardinal fire, this New Moon is a time to explore what most excites you, letting  your moods become one with a wild creative flow. Erratic spurts of raw brilliance will begin to appear in everything that you devote love and attention to.

In the sign of Aries, the Sun is exalted and the Moon is unusually independent. Thus, this New Moon will be a moment where you will be filled with a sense of sovereignty, defined by the courage to live in alignment with your vision of how life should be. 

And when the elevator tries to bring you down….

The last season was difficult for many. Dominated by Saturn’s entrance into Capricorn, the weight of death dragged many to their knees. For those who were ready to dig deeply, Saturn’s heaviness offered ideal conditions for remembrance, grief, and sincere contemplation.

But the natural emotional experience that corresponds with such work is melancholy, a dark temperament that drowns in sadness. Fortunately, melancholy is temporary: the natural darkness that always comes before the dawn.

Thus, after a long period of melancholy there is nothing more exhilarating than the bloody life-affirming spirit of Aries! Instead of getting lost on dark paths, the dawn offers you a grand vision of the future to rise for!

Since this New Moon is also electrified by the revolutionary energies of Uranus, fearlessly align yourself with the element of surprise, letting this visionary power cut through all obstacles and barriers in your path.

Dream it and be it!

The cure for your despair has finally come…in the form of the revolution.

Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down

Oh, no let’s go!

Go crazy

Knowing how important it is to let your spirits be high at this magical moment, all I can recommend is total immersion in music that heals. To capture the essence of this New Moon’s tremendous power to uplift your heart, there is no better song to inspire than Prince and the Revolution’s Let’s Go Crazy!

Those who party with Prince know how potent this song is in combatting Saturnine ailments like despair and depression. But, as always, you have to choose to let the light in for it to work.

As an angel on earth, Prince’s connection to God is keenly felt in all his music. But this song is actually a sermon and its teachings actually contain all the wisdom you need to live your life to the fullest…and beyond.

Dearly beloved

We are gathered here today

To get through this thing called “life

The soul of Aries is found at the dawn of life. It is best understood in the blood and triumph of birth. It was a fight to be born, to emerge from darkness into the light. This is the joy and heartache of Aries. With the conjunction between the New Moon and Uranus, the triumph of birth becomes electrified, ushering radical new energies into emergence.

Electric word, life

It means forever and that’s a mighty long time

This is a time for the birth of genius….for higher dimensions of consciousness to break through. An Uranian message is one that vibrates with enthusiasm for life, rising, falling and adapting to meet the demands of the time.

But I’m here to tell you

There’s something else…

A world of never ending happiness

You can always see the Sun

Arian energy can be felt in the splendid joy of life, appreciating everything that has found its place in the Sun with you.

Like a flower blooming in the warmth of the morning, the season of Aries is a time for the renewal of your spirit. That bliss of opening up to the light after a long night of struggle is the unique contentment best appreciated during this season.

So long as love and life are affirmed, Arian energies are pink with joy and festivity.

But when love and life are denied, Aries becomes red with the fury to fight back…like a Prince.

An Uranian New Moon in Aries will inspire you to question authority. After a season with Saturn in Capricorn, there will be a lot of ideologies and beliefs to question.

This New Moon will call you to defy something that you already know is wrong. The inventive and experimental urge to will be strong enough to give you the audacity to change gears abruptly.

Dr. Everything’ll be alright

Will make everything go wrong

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill

Hang tough children

Uranus enhances the flexibility of Aries immensely. The wisdom of Aries demands that you spring back up every time you are pushed down and to do that one must become increasingly nimble and inventive.

And when the elevator tries to bring you down….

Go crazy! Punch a higher floor!

This New Moon in Aries will fill you with the consuming desire for liberation. But like a climbing vine, you must fully adapt your current conditions. With the Arian spirit pushing you to grow and adapt, all the creative power you need to overcome obstacles and flourish will be granted. Don’t forget that every life begins after an agonizing labor and every triumph arrives after a great struggle. 

‘Cause in this life

Things are much harder than in the after world

In this life

You’re on your own

The Plutonian background to this Uranian New Moon implies that your desire for freedom and creativity will be startled by fear. But an encounter with fear at this time is not paralyzing, but transformative! Welcome each fear as a new reason to pulse with courage.

If you don’t like the world you’re living in

Take a look around you

At least you got friends

The influence that Uranus has over this New Moon in Aries will ask that you begin this new astrological year in an innovative and experimental mood. Be of good cheer as familiarity is rattled and routines are disrupted. There is no need to fear the change for in the Uranian state of mind, you can make music out of whatever chaos befalls you.

Are we gonna let the elevator

Bring us down

Oh, no let’s go!

Uranian energy is ingenious…strange…purple…and always revolutionary. It is willing to live on the fringes of what is acceptable. The messages of Uranus are glibly associated with insanity and that is because they bring an explosion of creative chaos. It is by going crazy that Uranian messengers show us the way.

Let’s go crazy, Let’s get nuts

Look for the purple banana

‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!

Let the natural burst of energy offered by this New Moon reinvigorate your love and devotion to life. To align yourself with the revolutionary qualities of this time, learn everything you can to prepare you for the fluctuation of fortune. Set your New Moon intentions to embody the intelligence of a climbing vine.

You must be equally prepared to handle the narcotic bliss of success as you are to handle the soul crushing fact of failure. You have to hold on to the heart at the center of it all.

Let there be light! Let there be joy in your life.

And if you still need guidance, party with Prince and you’ll figure it out…
