New Moon in Aries – Sunday, March 30, 2014 – 2:45 pm EDT

COSMIC KNOW-HOW: ASTROLOGY for EVERYONE – Tune In Wednesday, April 2, 2014 – 2:30 pm EDT, 1:30 pm CDT and 11:30 am PDT (see below).

NEW MOON in ARIES, MARCH 30, 2014: 2:45 pm EDT
Today’s NEW MOON (Sun and Moon together) in ARIES, sets the tone for the month of April. The Sun/New Moon energies are significantly ramped up by being very close to Uranus, currently moving through the sign of Aries. Uranus brings breakthroughs, breakdowns, excitement, chaos – especially when its travelling through the fiery sign of Aries. Expect the unexpected – individually, in families and communities, and internationally.

Have you been feeling more impulsive, easy to anger, impatient, frustrated? Are you experiencing exciting, creative breakthroughs? Have you noticed that your thinking is more “out of the box?” Do you have surges of energy when you can get a lot done – followed by exhaustion?

All of this falls under the influence of the growing “Grand Cross” alignment – cresting during the last 10 days of April. Even now, the energies are crackling. A Grand Cross includes at least 4 Astrological bodies making 4 right angles (squares) with each other and forming a cross. Right now, for example, Pluto in Capricorn is squaring Uranus in Aries. This squaring pattern began in June 2012 and will be complete by the end of April 2015. This is associated with a breakdown of systems and structures that are on weak foundations. We are experiencing this on a global scale. This is also a cycle for great creativity and innovation – with breakthroughs happening in the Sciences and all areas of Communication.

Aries is the sign of action – sometimes acting very impulsively, without thinking of consequences. Aries likes to begin new projects and has a sense of adventure. Aries stimulates the courage to right wrongs and not wait for “others” to do something. What actions can we take to improve the quality of our lives and that of our families, communities and countries?

Meanwhile – Mercury, Planet of Communication, is moving through the dreamy sign of Pisces until April 8. Intuition is enhanced. It’s a good time to be in touch with our dreams and ideals. Let’s rediscover those long-held beliefs that may have put on the shelf in favour of being more “realistic.” What’s really important to you. What gives your life meaning? Let’s align with our dreams and take action – even small baby steps are a new beginning. Then, on April 8, when Mercury moves into Aries, quick mindedness and new flashes of insights can arise. We may start to see and feel our way forward. With all this Aries energy it’s important to take some time to focus and breathe. Let’s find ways to constructively channel this intensity and feel a sense of accomplishment. It can be in the creative arts, in exercising and/or in “everyday life” – like cleaning out the basement!!

Mars (ruler of Aries) continues to move retrograde through Libra until May 20, when it will “turn” and move forward again. Aries and Libra are opposites. Mars focusses on what “I want to do” and Libra’s focus is on “how can we cooperate and do this together.” When Mars is in Libra – the challenge is to find ways to harmonize these energies. One way is to take initiative (Mars) and use it to negotiate and build mutually beneficial (Libra) plans. Then there’s a better chance for more enduring success down the road.

With this “slowdown” of Mars in Libra – we may feel frustrated and impatient. It’s helpful to work with this energy rather than resist it. It’s best to cultivate patience as the timing may not be ripe for any major movement. This period is well-spent researching and reviewing plans. Let’s be ready for late May when Mars goes “forward” and then we move into effective action.

Understanding Our Life Patterns: The power and value of astrology
Understanding our birth charts helps to clarify the nature of our struggles and the nature of our gifts . What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each planetary cycle? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others. Astrology helps us remember that the challenges we face are cyclical – and it highlights opportunities where we can learn and grow.

Astrological New Year: Spring Equinox – March 20, 2014

COSMIC KNOW-HOW: ASTROLOGY for EVERYONE – NEXT PROGRAM: March 19, 2014 2:30 pm EDT (11:30 am PDT). Please scroll down for more information.

Program Topic: Astrological NEW YEAR – 2014: Important Themes for the Coming Months

SPRING EQUINOX – Astrological New Year: March 20 – 11:57 am EST
On March 20, the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac year and the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Equinox brings equal light/equal darkness. From then until Summer Solstice, the days will get longer – in another turning of the seasons.

Mercury, Planet of communication, is moving out of intellectual Aquarius on March 18, and will be moving through intuitive Pisces until April 7. When Mercury travels through Pisces communication can be confusing. For the next 3 weeks, check and double-check important information. It’s best not to sign contracts or make specific plans – as we may overlook important details. In conversations, confirm relevant points to make sure you’re both on the same page! Share your assumptions to avoid misunderstandings. Have some quiet times every day – they can be brief. Quiet the static in your mind and listen to that Piscean voice within.

We continue to deal with retrograde energies as Mars moves retrograde through the Sign of Libra from March 1 – May 20. Mars, ruler, of Aries, is impulsive and tends to act unilaterally – it’s the type of leadership that goes ahead without consulting others. Mars also brings a kind of courage that will step in where others “fear to tread.” Libra is the Astrological Sign that’s concerned with cooperation, joint ventures, and mediation. Needless to say, Mars is not “happy” in collaborative Libra especially when Mars moves retrograde.

By nature, Martian energy is enthusiastic and impatient to get on with things. Thus, there can be frustration during a retrograde period when things feel like they’re going “backwards.” Negotiations can stall, leaders may act rashly due to their impatience. This energy applies to all of us. Where are we impatient? Where are we less likely to listen to counsel? Depending on our charts – this frustration can affect our health, our work, our relationships, and our plans. Patience is required now. We can best use this retrograde energy to review plans and projects and strengthen our skills – while we wait for the energies to “reverse.” From May 20 onwards, things will begin to move forward as Mars travels through Libra until July 25. Where are the possible opportunities? In leadership and collaboration. Since Mars (individualist energy) is in Libra (collaborative energy) it may a very good time to take the initiative to bring people together – both internationally and individually.

The Grand Cross between Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars will be exact (for the 5th time) on April 20 – the pressure is building right now – and will dissipate by mid- May. The Grand Cross is a combination of oppositions and squares, between Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars. The tensions are great and need release. The best thing we can do as individuals is stay steady and grounded. This will help others around us to calm down. Let’s expand this healing energy to include as many people as possible in wider and wider circles. Joining with others with like mind and values will help strengthen and build a path to peaceful solutions and outcomes. In our personal lives – we are being challenged to be more creative, to focus on solutions rather than simply dwelling on the problems we are facing This is true for individuals and the larger community.

There is much upheaval around the World. Old corrupt systems are being challenged. Some systems are collapsing without new structures in place. At the same time, many creative breakthroughs are occurring – in technology, science, the arts, medicine, the environment.

Full Moon in Virgo – Sunday, March 16 2014 – 12:08 pm EST

Spring Equinox – Astrological New Year: March 20 – 11:57 am EST

On March 20, the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac year and the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Equinox brings equal light/equal darkness. From then until Summer Solstice, the days will get longer – in another turning of the seasons.

Today the Full MOON in VIRGO is opposite the SUN in PISCES. (When the Moon is full it’s exactly opposite the Sun.) With the tension of opposites – tempers can flare, emergencies are more prevalent and, depending on your specific chart – major emotional buttons can be pushed. Virgo is the sign of the skeptic, full of intellectual questions. Virgo prefers to have systems in place and needs to have analytical curiosity satisfied. Pisces stimulates our intuitive wisdom. Its thinking is fuzzy regarding specifics – it’s the energy of the dreamer, the mystic, the idealist.

It’s important to integrate these very different energies. Make time today to be reflective and give yourself space to wonder. If you need to put things in order – to prepare for the coming week, for example, give yourself a specific time period to accomplish your main priorities and equally leave time open to listen to music, journal, walk in the park, etc.

Meanwhile, Mercury, Planet of communication, is moving out of intellectual Aquarius on March 18, and will be moving through intuitive Pisces until April 7. When Mercury travels through Pisces communication can be confusing. For the next 3 weeks, check and double-check important information. It’s best not to sign contracts or make specific plans – as we may overlook important details. In conversations, confirm relevant points to make sure you’re both on the same page!
