This Aries new Moon occurs on Sunday April 3, 2011: at 7:33am Pacific through 10:33 am Eastern time to 2:33pm Greenwich Mean Time.   As you can see, on one side of the Sun/Moon is Mars with Uranus -- something's sure to sizzle there.   On the other side of our New Moon are Jupiter and Mercury retrograde, opening up the Mind to new inspiration.   These energies want to be used!

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun and Moon at 13*30' Aries is: A serpent encircles a man and a woman in close embrace.

                                       
Androgyny by Leonardo daVinci

This is a powerful symbol of the higher wisdom available to us when we use both sides of the brain, use both feminine and masculine energies, and use imagination and intuition as well as astute thinking and fact-finding to live life to the fullest.   Protected by the dynamic energies of life itself (the serpent), the union is perfected.   This is an image of the next stage of consciousness for us -- a unity consciousness that is attuned once again to the Earth and the Cosmos, and to each other.  

The rest of the New Moon story:

It's a busy sky up there at the moment, so remember to follow your nose but don't get overwhelmed!

Saturn in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries: This past Monday, March 28th, Jupiter and Saturn stared each other in the eyes for the last time.   Hopefully, they both got the message that we need to create a more fair and just society, both at home and at work; where real innovation and vision is called for to reverse some of the damage to our environment and to our health.  

Mercury went retrograde on Wednesday March 30th at 24*21' Aries: A double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings.    This implies a sense of responsibility to society -- what is within is also without.   Use this Mercury retrograde period from March 30 to April 23 to reflect on what it is you want to do.   You might even wait until May 11th for Mercury to return to this degree to take that idea out into the world.

Friday April 1st, Mars moves into its own sign of Aries, ready to play the April Fool just as long as something gets started.   Mars stays in Aries until May 11th as well.

Sunday April 3 is the Aries New Moon, a moon open to endless possibilities for growth and finding our identities. Soon after the new Moon, the Moon opposes Saturn in Libra and then conjoins Jupiter in Aries, setting an emotional marker on these planets'   earlier opposition.   Then a few hours later, Mars and Uranus meet up in a potentially explosive way if you don't work with the energies.   So go out and do something strenuous as well as unique; something new for your body to appreciate.   Later in the day, the Sun also opposes Saturn, making us conscious of the need to concretize our big plans and not get frustrated.

Monday April 4th Neptune moves into its own watery kingdom, the sign of Pisces until it retrogrades back into Aquarius for one last time on August 4th.      The energy of Imagination, the power of the Unconscious, and a new compassionate consciousness will now have its own voice.    The oceans and seas and our drinking waters will be a major concern in the next 14 years.   Never forget: Water is life.

Wednesday April 6th the Sun joins Jupiter, giving us a sense of greater self-confidence and possibilities.

Saturday April 9th Pluto will turn retrograde in Capricorn until September 16th, turning that evolutionary energy inward to clean house and get clear about what we've just discovered.   We need to digest the dirt, corruption, hypocrisy and just plain dead weight in our social structures.

Monday April 11th, Mars in Aries squares Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, either igniting strong passions or honing our commitment to overcome obstacles.   Today Jupiter and Mercury also join up, opening the mind to new ways of dealing with the obstacles.  

As you can see, these two weeks around this New Moon are packed with powerful transformative energies.   Stay grounded and centered and play with the energies as they come into your life.   The story isn't set in stone yet!

I was going to talk about the Hero/Hera's Journey, but I seem to have run out of my space/time continuum.   So I'll talk about that at the Libra Full Moon in two weeks.   We'll also be telling ancient myths and stories on The Bard's Grove on Sunday mornings at blogtalk radio.   Please join us this week as we talk about the Hera & Hero's Journey.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
