The Moon enters Aries today, the 1st sign in the Zodiac, the entry point, the beginning. With fierce, independent, passionate courage, Aries tells the heart to "forge ahead". Aries governs the Head and keeps the motto "Head First" or "Just DO it!". With Fire as it's ruling element, it blazes a trail. Achetypally, it is depicted by the warrior who is willing to take dangerous risks somewhat in part by not taking the time to consider all the less than optimum outcomes. Part of the call for Aries is to rely on courage and maintain tenacity to handle whatever may surface in it's quest for freedom. Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars and the Moon is in tension with Mars in Capricorn today. Capricorn takes a planned methodical approach to life based on wisdom gleaned from prior experience and hard work whereas Aries takes the "leap of faith" without a lot of forethought. Mars, representing our will and drive, wants our efforts to be played out with some strategy and calculation creating some tension as our hearts may want to move quickly without too much contemplation. Saturn is trying to help the Moon cool it's jets by stepping in as an authority reminding the Moon that there are intense aspects of life that will unfold over time. Having a courageous heart will help to navigate difficult terrains, but responding foolishly to impulses may not be the best approach. Our life-giving Sun is close to Venus in Scorpio and together they are illuminating the intense realities of our Earthy existence. It must be no accident that Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, always falls when the Sun is in Scorpio who engages the unseen realm and communes with our ancestors and our loved ones who have passed. Use the fearless energy today to keep moving boldly along your path while holding space for your wise elders to guide you.
