New Moon Phase: begin, intend

Moon in Pisces/Aries (6:28 am ET/10:28 am UT)

Wisdom Goddess:

Skill: look at the various things that are being projected

Positive Imprints: initiative and initiations, completion, focus, applying one's knowledge/skills/talents, connecting Heaven and Earth, progress, growth, clarity, release, looking to a higher power, goals and desires, solid foundations, cravings, being students and teachers for each other, determination

Catalysts for Change: denial of one's true self, going off on tangents, temptation to act out one's feelings, tricks, laziness, unclear, being under someone's influence, prematurity, lack of initiative, lingering in the past, wanting others to project a certain or ideal image

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it up as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it"

The New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse occurs today, and it happens at the very last degree of the zodiac.  Poised on the precipice of the Second Renaissance, the panorama of majestic rock formations surrounds us.

This month is very important because it marks an end point.  A cycle of time where truth and wisdom have been shadowed comes to a close.  A new cycle of time that steers us back toward balance and sanity begins at the next New Moon, the New Moon in Aries on April 18, 2015.  This is covered in the audio recording overview for the month, which is posted on the Homepage of

But today, as the New Moon imprints the predominant energetic for this lunar month, we find that people react quite strongly and emotionally when there is a Total Solar Eclipse.  This particular energetic can trigger levels of identity crisis, which often leads to acting out (acting out our feelings as if they were the totality of who we are; we are much more). 

Wounding, especially self-wounding and wounding in relationships, is an element to this energy.  It is better to look to the teaching that is implied within the situation and learn from it.  It's not worth the physical toll it takes on everyone involved when the energies toy with, tempt, and trick us into being harsh with ourselves and others.

Within this, we are wise to remember the notion of being careful what we wish for because we just might get it.

The degree of the Earth at the New Moon is the Sabian symbol of "having an urgent task to complete, a man doesn't look to any distractions."  This tells us of the need to remain focused and to stay the course regardless of what shows up and what falls down.  We are urged to stay true to ourselves and our paths.  Don't allow another to project their own vision for you.

I suggest that one of the "urgent tasks" we have this month is to release as much of that past as we can.  This "last degree of the zodiac energy" is about endings and releases.  It's Balsamic energy, and we are in the second of two months that are like month-long Balsamic Moon phases.  Balsamic phase is the mystical, dreamy, ethereal time of the year when the veils between the worlds are thin.  Our ancestors are closer.  Spirit is closer.  What serves neither can be released.

One last thing, something I did not cover fully in the audio recording is the significance of the degree of Mars at the New Moon with the Sabian symbol of "the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires."  This energetic implies that we have come to a "place" we were seeking and now must take it up.  What do you need to admit?  Do you announce yourself, knock, or just open the gate and walk through?  This is a very esoteric concept, but you inner wisdom should be glimpsing or telling you what you need to get from this image.

The question for each of us this month is What is your ideal of greatness?  It's what has already come into concrete manifestation at another space and time.  And it's majestic.
