Chiron in Aries 2018-2027: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

Chiron the Wounded Healer is an asteroid in our solar system that orbits between Saturn & Uranus. Orbiting between these two planets suggests that Chiron’s energies are strong and awakening.

Chiron was a healer in Greek Mythology, and an immortal centaur. One day he was struck by a poisoned arrow from Hercules, which Chiron taught him how to make. He lived with incredible pain until he offered up his immortality to Prometheus who we know later gave fire to mankind.

This story shows us that we are our own worst enemy at times, and surrender is absolutely key to living a pain free life. Chiron’s placement in our horoscope shows us where are deepest wound is in our life and at the same time, how we can heal all that’s unwell in our life. The wound is a symptom of something larger going on within.

Chiron in Pisces

Chiron was transiting Pisces from 2010 until April 17, 2018. This 8 year transit saw us delving deep into the mystical energies of Pisces. It was a time where a lot of people underwent some serious spiritual awakenings and it was during this period that we saw the “New Age” becoming more mainstream. Fanaticism, deception, and floods, tsunamis, and hurricanes were running rampant. On a personal level, Chiron in Pisces forced us to swim in the deep waters of our subconscious, to peel back the layers of our 3rd dimensional reality to understand that what we see is not true reality. Many people underwent serious spiritual transformations.

Chiron in Aries

Chiron will move in and out of Aries until 2019- so the real hard work of Aries will be felt more in 2019.

Aries is the sign of self. It is an independent, initiative, birthing, soul forging through into new life energy.

Collective Level

On a collective level, Chiron in Aries will bring out a more self serving energy similar to the “America First” thing going on in the United States. I predict there will be less solidarity as everyone will be in it for themselves. Aries greatest wound is learning to accept help from others, so on a global scale, I predict there will be more push backs against trade agreements and geographical agreements such as the European Union and NAFTA. I also predict there will be more wars, and the devastation caused by war will force everyone to take a hard look at themselves. I actually noticed as soon as Chiron entered Aries, a G7 summit was held, and a lot of Western movies were airing on the television. The Wild West is a perfect illustration of a Chiron in Aries energy, because it was  “an every man in it for himself time.”

Personal Level

On a personal level, Chiron in Aries will offer deep healing of our identity. We will come to learn so much more about who we are and what our place is in the vast world and universe. We will be questioning our purpose and existence asking the question “Who am I?”

Another large wound of Aries is self love. A soul born with a lot of Arian energy usually lacks self love. This is because with a lot of Aries energy comes a new incarnational cycle. How many of us are truly confident and comfortable when we are experiencing something for the first time? Most of us feel awkward and shy, or our Egos compensate and we become overly confident only to suffer a bruised ego later on when we fail miserably or don’t live up to our own expectations. There will be a lot of healing on this level. Self love first requires self trust which is something we will be confronted with a lot during these next 8 years. Aries wants you to experience a lot of new things, but in order to truly experience them, a certain level of trust has to be present, and so Chiron will be forcing you to become self reliant. It’s no longer about the Pisces escapism where during the past 8 years you might have retreated into your head a lot. No, Chiron in Aries will push you into a lot of new situations head on that will force you to deal with them. We all know that you learn the most about yourself when you are challenged and try new things. Remember, Chiron in Aries is all about the self “who am I?”

Chiron in Pisces helped us understand the spiritual side to life, but that information is useless unless we can use it for self empowerment which in turn will empower humanity. Chiron in Aries will take all that “spiritual stuff” and make us use it for self analysis. Questioning your place in the “spiritual industry” and the universe itself will be very strong. We are moving away from healing deep emotional wounds to healing deep action oriented wounds. How are you holding yourself back? Are you afraid of taking some steps? Do you care about what other people think of you too much? What do you really want to accomplish in your life?

Aries is the warrior so you will feel the push to go your own way during this transit. It’s a very independent sign, so at times you might feel very lonely, but getting in touch with yourself is the only way to repair this Chiron wound. The heart is a lonely hunter.

 

Chiron in Aries will confront issues around self-love, self-worth, and identity that will create a balm of self awareness that will be the cure to the Aries wound of an unconscious self.

Check out the song ‘I am the Warrior” by Scandal down below. I find it to be such an empowering song!

New Moon in Aries April 16, 2018: La liberté de la lune

Date: Monday April 16, 2018

Moonbeams: Refreshing, new beginnings, shocking, unexpected, persevering

Main Lesson: With inspiration comes perspiration

The underground rebellion La Luna is preparing fora revolt against the stagnant boring regime of reality. Dramatic? I know. But this is what the New Moon in Aries is going to feel like. A revolution in our lives is coming.

The Aspects

A New Moon is when the Sun and Moon conjunct, turning the moon invisible. This is happening in the sign of Aries which is a recalibrating, refreshing, passionate, forward moving, rebirthing, independent sign. The Sun is exalted in Aries, so he is ready to initiate changes in your life. The Moon in Aries is impulsive. You’re rearing to go.

Uranus is conjunct this NM adding a cooky flavour to this lunation. Uranus is unpredictable, unusual, electric, and awakening. The Moon is already on fire, and Uranus is plugging it into its circuit of the unexpected.

Mercury is stationing direct in Aries during this NM which is also adding a very impulsive go getter feeling. Progress will start to be made after this time.

Venus in Taurus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio which brings in the question of material vs. spiritual. We want to get going with our plans, but Jupiter wants you to look at things from a higher perspective.

Mars is in Capricorn, the composed soldier who wants the revolution to start, but conjunct Saturn and Pluto makes him frustrated because Saturn and Pluto want him to be more methodical and strategic.

Aries is the spark of inspiration and Capricorn is the manifestation of that spark. The two signs work well together, and we do have a strong emphasis of both during this NM. Saturn is stationing before he turns retrograde on April 18, so the revolution is starting now, but you won’t see the results for quite some time.

Venus trine Mars will help us infuse some love to our situation so we aren’t so frustrated and angry.

Neptune sextile Mars will quiet the energy of revolution so we can tune in to our inner world which will have some very important things to say during this time.

Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury and he is charged up at the NM and Mercury is direct. Messages in the form of synchronicity’s and inspiration will be very strong.

Things to Keep in Mind

Keep in mind that Uranus conjunct the NM will trigger unexpected events in the Aries ruled area of your life. Something will come out of the blue. Also, you might find yourself doing something out of the ordinary that shocks and surprises you. For example; if the NM is occurring in your 10th house of career, you might suddenly receive a promotion, get fired, or choose to go down a different path. It could also mean new beginnings in the life of your father.

The New Moon in Aries marks the official start of the New Year in many cultures. This is our first New Moon in Aries since the cosmic new year on the Spring Equinox. With Uranus conjunct the NM, expect the unexpected during the next 12 months. There will be a lot of surprises and shocks that will completely transform your life. Remember, Uranus is at the last few degrees in Aries before he moves into Taurus in May, so whatever he wants to shake up in your Aries house, he will be shaking up during the New Moon.

Capricorn squaring the NM indicates that restructuring is happening, but it will gradually happen over the next so many months. It’s hard to be patient when there’s so much electric energy in the air right now, but with inspiration comes perspiration.

The revolution is starting. This is more about planning out your rebellion as opposed to marching up to the castle to behead the ruler. Successful revolutions are strategic, and persevering. There’s a grumbling of change right now. In time, it will all be different. Liberation is on its way.

New Moon on Monday by Duran Duran

This song is all about an underground resistance called La Luna who are planning to overthrow the government. The lyrics are a little odd in perfect Uranian fashion, and the video depicts the energies of this NM in a cinematic music video way.

Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
With your dance on the eventide
You got me coming up with answers
All of which I deny
I said it again
But could I please rephrase it
Maybe I can catch a ride
I couldn’t really put it much plainer
But I’ll wait ’til you decide
Send me your warning siren
As if I could ever hide
Last time La Luna
I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
Breaking away with the beast of both worlds
A smile that you can’t disguise
Every minute I keep finding
Clues that you leave behind
Save me from these reminders
As if I’d forget tonight
This time La Luna
I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

2018 Bridal Trends for the 12 Zodiac Signs

Venus in Aries ladies are assertive in their power and fair better in clean simple classic dresses that will not take the attention away from their self confident auras.

New Moon in Aries Oracle

Anna Karenina is not simply a tale of aristocratic rendezvous, satin petticoat dresses, glitzy ballrooms, and lies and betrayals as cold as a Russian winter, rather, this is a story about self autonomy, the major lesson of our New Moon in Aries. Anna (Aries) refused to let the social codes of Russian aristocracy (Libra) rule her life, rather she followed the dictates of her heart to the extreme, purposely rebelling against society,  rather than upholding her responsibility as a mother. Anna needed to uphold her role as a mother to ensure the well being of her son, but Anna wanted to freely follow her passion, which involved having an affair. Anna’s misaligned values ultimately led to her downfall. Our New Moon in Aries conjunct Venus Rx in Aries is offering us an opportunity to check in with our hearts to ensure that we are not needing our wants, but wanting our needs. This is the alchemical code for self-autonomy, when we are able to forge ahead with our passions that are truly in alignment with the essence of who we are. Anna was insistent that love trumped duty, but it was her dutiful commitment to love rather than her love of duty that saw her fall from grace. What’s ironic is that there is something admirable about following your heart even when it’s looked down upon from the Libran mirror. When we embrace the pioneering spirit of Anna Karenina by being true to ourselves and values, only then will true love and passion prevail.

New Moon in Aries: Soul Soil

3:57 AM UT- March 28

10:57pm ET- March 27

7:57pm PDT- March 27
Moonbeams- new beginnings, fertilization, self-love.

This lunation marks the beginning of a new moon cycle in our cosmic new year. This is the perfect time to start setting some new year’s resolutions and for some soul gardening as I like to call it. New Moons are always about following your dreams without hesitation, and without balance. With 6 planets in Aries right now, Sun, Moon, Venus, Eris, Uranus, and Mercury, this is adding a warrior like energy to the mix. Aries marks the beginning of the zodiac and the creation point. Aries is the child of the cosmos. It is through the innocence of this sign that makes it in fact, the most mature sign of Astrology. It is when we are young that we are not moulded or shaped by external conditionings. We gravitate towards our passions, and we live and breath our purpose, given the right conditions. That connection to source is what endows us with its wisdom. We have integrated the spiritual downloads of Pisces and are now ready to set them on fire in Aries and to ground them into reality in Taurus.

As I mentioned, New Moons are not about balance. This is not the time to ways the pros and cons or to listen to what everyone else has to say. We are to find something we are passionate about and to just go for it! What makes this moon a little tricky, is that we have Venus in Aries Retrograde conjunct the moon at this time. We are weeding out the garden, re-evaluating our lives, figuring out who we are. Once the garden has been weeded out, we are then able to add some fertilizer to the soil. This is where the masculine energy of Mars comes into effect. Mars contains all of the nutrients we need to make a healthy flowerbed. Passion, drive, energy, and innocence, and self-love. The challenge with Mars is that if we don’t know who we are and what we want, then the passion, drive, and energy don’t have anywhere to go. Mars is in Taurus, the sign ruled by Libra, and doesn’t know quite what to do in the earthy mansion.Since Venus and Mars can’t see each other at this time, both planets have to integrate the energies of their opposites, and to learn the lessons of their opposites.This is when Mars needs to go inwards and light the internal flame. The fumes of this fire will be self-love. Like a flower, Venus needs the light of love to turn its attention to, just like flowers use heliotropism to absorb the rays of the sun. Jupiter in Libra retrograde opposite this lunation is asking us to integrate the masculine and feminine, and with the fumes of self-love satisfying the airy energy of Libra, you can count on this New Moon as being a major self-love journey.

The overall oppositional energy of the New Moon in Aries of it not wanting balance, but needing balance due to the Venus conjunction, is the overall theme of this year. Through understanding who we are by working with opposing energies, we can then align our wants with our needs and vice a versa. When the two become aligned, this is self-autonomy in its purest form, and the major lesson of Venus in Aries retrograde. Wanting our needs will be the roots that take hold.

Venus Retrograde in Aries Oracle

I have been focusing on Venus RX in Aries quite a lot lately, as I was born with this placement in my natal chart. I also feel this is the most important retrograde we experience here on earth as it is an opportunity for us to leap forward in our evolution. This is a time to get clarity on what our values and needs are, to ask the most important questions of “Who am I?” “What is important to me?” Learning how to have a deeper relationship to yourself is the only way you can develop a deeper sense with source. You have to go inwards to go outwards. Enjoy the freedom of being yourself.

Audrey Hepburn who was born with this natal placement is the perfect archetype for this energy. She was able to have a deep relationship with herself through her acting career, and through suffering the terrors of war, devoted much of her later life to humanitarian causes. Her romantic life was troubled but it was when she looked to the suffering of others (Libra polarity) that she found her purpose.

Rose quartz is the stone of self love and can be of great help during this time.

Mariah Carey’s (who was also born with this placement) first number 1 single ‘Vision of Love’ is a song about having a strong loving connection to source. As a Venus RX she must have subconsciously known that when you embrace the love of source, you see and feel love everywhere.

Waxing Crescent Moon in Aries Oracle

a-drip-herea-drop-there-conserve-water-with-care-2

The waxing crescent phase is all about being on a mission to manifestation. In this phase we feel a very strong pull towards making our dreams that were imagined during the New Moon phase, a reality. Amazonite assists in manifesting, and carnelian aids creativity.

Supermoon in Aries: I am the Warrior

I am going to keep this super short and sweet by focusing on the moonbeams during this lunation. Essentially, we have been in a cycle of death since the beginning of 2016 as we have been doing alot of purging and releasing in order to make room for the new 2017 energy about to come in. October, and more specifically during this full moon, we are going to be entering into a cycle of rebirth, as 2016 winds down.

Moonbeams:

10 universal month of instant manifestation, aries 1st sign of zodiac= new beginnings

Emotional breakthroughs that take you to a new place, new environment, new terrain

Mercury conjunct sun in libra= greater understanding to analyze and communicate very clearly with others, lots of mind energy, rebalancing of plans in a breakthrough way

Moon powerful T Square to Mars and Pluto in capricorn= invigorates you

26 universal date= 8= balance of heaven and earth- leadership, courage, merging into one

Taking action

Taking a stand- this past year has been all about getting honest with your feelings, now it’s time to act upon those feelings

Standing up for something or someone

Since Aries is the warrior energy, step outside of your comfort zone, conjunct uranus= rebellious, change is inevitable.

Mercury-Pluto square, speak the truth, even when it is risky, share uniqueness with the world, no filter- be prepared, you are really going to see things for as they actually are.

Because this is a super-moon, all of these moonbeams will be super heightened!

Check to see where the moon will be transiting in your natal chart, as this is the area of your life where you will be a warrior, transforming and breaking through!
