6 JANUARY 2017, ARIES
This hotly passionate 1st quarter Moon in Aries is right next to Uranus and square Pluto. Sometimes our passion is so hot we can’t allow ourselves to know it and we ‘freeze’ – i.e. become detached and distanced and ‘don’t care’ to protect ourselves from the grief we might not be able to have a deep core need. This quarter moon unfreezes us. If you get upset, or someone else does with you, pay attention, as life is helping you see a very strong need and is provoking you to become motivated to assert yourself to go after it. Let’s say you feel almost insane with frustration over being stuck in a queue… is there a significant thing in your life that you’re absolutely over waiting for? This quarter moon shows where we are ‘over it’ about a need not being met, and encourages us to take innovative action to either go get it, or walk away and stop holding on for something that’s not coming. Aries is the zodiac sign of pioneering; of forging new territory. Come up with a plan to find a way to ask for what you need. If it looks like something is over or impossible, Aries is then the zodiac sign that gives great courage to walk away and find deep meaningful needs in something new, not in something that has run its course. If you’re already crystal clear on what you need, and it’s appropriate for you to pursue it, this quarter Moon brings fire, strength and focus – keep your eye on your goal and go for it!
