New Moon Phase: beginnings, setting intentions

Moon in Taurus/Gemini (7:30 pm ET/11:30 pm UT)

Goddess of Wisdom: Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands the Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East, King of Battle)

Skill: gain clarity

Positive Imprints: inner knowing, vitality, bursts of creativity, spiritual guidance, focus, new ideas, powers of observation, taking the road less traveled

Catalysts for Change:  sensory overload, difficulty focusing, naive, temper tantrums, clinging to the past, emotional outbursts, resisting growth, burdened, feeling spacey, fear of the unknown

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "the music of the spheres"

As hoped, the Sun sent a coronal mass ejection from a long-duration solar filament that erupted just four hours before the New Moon on Saturday.  I have not been able to locate data on the exact duration or time of onset, but the peak occurred at 10:19 am ET/2:19 pm UT.

At that time, the Moon was located at 26 Aries and the energy of the Sabian symbol "a man possessed of more gifts than he can hold."  Could it get any better?  While the field was being swept of the old, more abundance, more ideas, more potential, and more wisdom than we can understand at once flooded in.  These are the new imprints into the energy, and they will unwind in time as we grow into our understanding of them.

Would you agree that when people are given possession of more gifts than they can hold, renaissance unfolds?

The rebirth continues today, with a little help from the Black Moon, which will move to the 17th degree of Virgo today at 4:45 pm ET/8:45 pm UT.  The Sabian symbol for this degree is "a volcanic eruption."  While this energy brings release of emotions or things that have built up, it also refers to an eruption of ideas.  If you have been holding something back (or if something seems to have been held back), we are in brand new energy for that to come forward.  And it can come forward in the manner of your choosing.  We've been holding back for a while waiting for new energy.  The Black Moon will remain at this degree until April 28 (the First Quarter Moon phase), so we have a window of time to bring forth anything that has been suppressed.  If you experience an eruption or the eruption of another, observe and consider the message.

The Sun at the degree of "a clear mountain stream" today also reinforces the revitalization.  A flowing current from Spirit comes down.  This energy is about having a direction, course, or aim.  The steam's path may wind all over the place  today or it may be a fairly straight shot, but the refreshment occurs regardless.  We are following a course toward clarity and refreshment today.

Also, today Venus disseminates the degree of "newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience."  This is added energy for refreshing the field and taking a direction.  There is a great deal of guidance in effect today.

I perceived the beginning of the Second Renaissance as a subtle shift, but we will see how subtle or overt the energetics are today with these themes.  As we begin to open more "gifts" (wisdom)  than we could ever imagine, aim for clarity and the way will be shown.

I think we are off to beautiful start, wise owls.

(Note on the 4/20 craze:  The old world order instigated a campaign to connect/co-opt the plant teacher marijuana to the date 4/20, which is Hitler's birthday.  It's an outworn imprint; see it for what it is.  We are about imprinting the new now, so if it is your pattern to partake in this, do it at 4:19 or 4:21 or any other time, but not 4:20.)
