‘Why does Aries get a bad rap?!’ My client asked rhetorically. ‘Because they stampede right over you! Like babies, they need undivided attention!’
‘It’s what they want — it’s what they need! They like to have noise, so turn on the TV, the music, and just assume they are in charge of what channel you are on. It’s got to be their way or the highway – for goodness sake, they live by the words: I AM!’
I listened to her. I smiled. I understood. Her ex-husband was an Aries. I saw how she shuddered when she spoke of him.
I wanted to argue. My son is a double Aries and he is not like that at all. But I didn’t want to start a fight.
Is it because my son is born under a dark sky — like this new moon we’re approaching this weekend — so he is not a traditional Aries, and he is softer? (Every new moon baby is typically introverted.) Or is it because he has a grand trine in Water so his Aries Fire has been doused?
You must know by now that not ALL Aries are like her ex was. Not all of your ex’s signs get taken off the list of signs we like. That’s not fair! We have to remain open and look again.
For example, my son is not self-centered. He is not loud. He does not suck the energy out of the room. Not at all — quite the opposite, in fact. He is the first one up to do the dishes, to help, and to ask how I am.
‘Let’s not get stuck in the past,’ said every Aries. ‘Everything changes.’
‘And it’s spring — change is here. Keep moving.’
May we all go through this weekend’s Aries new moon with the willingness to start anew.
Let go of the memory of old Whatshisname and open up to a new start.
There are four planets in Aries during this new moon sky. It’s energized, and boy, how the heavens have shifted! There is Fire in the sky. I feel it. Do you?
We are starting a new program I am thrilled about called CS: Continual Stars. I am going to teach again.
See? There is change in the air. I haven’t taught beginners in a long time. I am in love with this new energy and our new program.
Aries reminds me of the child in all of us — so maybe my client was right. There is a baby-like quality that is worthy of our attention.
I live in wonder. To be able to show the world the value of the stars makes me so excited.
My dream is that many will look up and realize we are being guided. We are being watched. Our world can start again. There is never an end to the ‘new’.
What will it take for you to start again? Every day is an opportunity to ask ‘what’s new?’ However, it’s not as easy as just thinking about it; this double-Aries sky demands action.
A proclamation would be useful. Whichever sign bugs you the most, I invite you to say out loud, ‘I’m going to learn to love _____ (fill in the blank).’
When the past holds us hostage to the present, there is no chance of a new beginning.
Under this double-Aries sky, I wish you beautiful, positive, spring energy.
Tell me what you’re starting anew; I would love to hear!
P.S. I hope to see you in CS in June!
