From the Book of Aries
New Moon in Pisces/Aries
The New Moon begins in Pisces and the 6th house on 18.04.2015 at 19:59 (London) and enters Aries less than an hour later.
The last New and Full Moon eclipses have played havoc with our nervous systems for the last few weeks or more; and it isn’t over yet! The New Moon begins in the last degree of Pisces and enters Aries, less than hour later and it would only be fair to say that this is still a time of drama and high energy. In the last few weeks the affects of the Moon have been one of struggle and instability. As the New Moon moves from Pisces and enters Aries the struggle becomes more centered and focused, although still very fragile.
It may feel like there is too much going on right now? Or emotions are just overloaded with confusion? Whatever the circumstances, now would definitely be a good time for ‘controlled action’, as the vibrations will be hypersensitive and fierce. We will definitely have a lot to gain if can focus this energy into our goals or careers, but it won’t be an easy play as the Moons conjunction to Uranus emphasizes the Pisces/Aries mood swings and erratic emotional responses, “Short, Sharp Shocks” are what we will more than likely experience at this time. The Mercury/Moon conjunction revolves around communications and immediate reactions, which may leave us feeling quite guilty if our emotional responses are highly strung, this will be due to the sudden and impulsive nature of this Moon.
New Moon on Pisces-Aries Cusp:
Happy New Moon!
The solar and lunar energy we have today is Pisces! Yes, today is the very last full day of Pisces Sun and we also have the new moon showing up. That means Pisces will influence us subconsciously for another 2 weeks even though we are moving into the fiery hot headed Aries Sun energy tomorrow. Now is the time to jump start your spiritual life in a new direction. It is time for a Rebirth. The Pisces–Aries Cusp. My last article Lunar Eclipse in Virgo reminds us that we’re in the middle of going thru our cosmic closets and clearing them out! This is still happening, only faster and deeper with this extra Pisces new moon influence. It’s time to merge all realities. Here on Earth there is a coming together of our spiritual essence that cannot be stopped. That is within ourselves and also with each other. We are able to feel each other’s pain, joy and everything in between. Focus on the Joy. We are all connected. This New Moon in the deepest depths of Pisces just solidifies this very fact.
This is a new moon with tremendous power. Fire Water Power. This is a time of great spiritual renewal and transformation. During new moons we begin something new. Right now we should be making promises to ourselves about the future. A lot of us will commit to change and mature, taking on greater challenges and adventures. In this new Paradigm awakening. It is happening through US! This new moon will have us collectively feeling the deepest parts of our soul’s existence. We are also revved up and ready to pioneer the new frontier in our lives.
Deep Cleansing and purging are still the most active forces on the planet right now. The Blood Moon eclipse alignments happening for the last 2 years recently solidified that further. And it will continue to bring this lesson on home for us so don’t give up on the work that has to be done on your health. I’ll start writing more about that, promise. >MORE

Forget American ("Western") astrology, it's just not real; only a Mickey Mouse cartoon we've been watching our entire lives. It's a fabricated view of the stars that one quick look at the night skies can dispel forever. Like Mickey, it's a screw-up. It's anti-astronomy. anti-science. Invariably, astronomy always trumps astrology because while astrology is the subjective interpretation, astronomy is the objective fact. Astronomy is the foundation for astrology. How can astrology work, if it's not astronomically correct?
Astrology has to be based on the information we get from astronomic data; it cannot exist without it. If astrologers live in a bubble of their own making, defying astronomical findings, they are digging themselves into a pit of confusion. Astrology is the extension of astronomy, the hand-maiden of astronomy, the same as astronomy!
For thousands of years astronomy and astrology were inseparable. The astrologer and the astronomer were the same person! The two fields of study are one, because both are based on the observable heavens. Today astronomy follows the reality, and astrology follows the fallacy. Modern astrology is divorced from astronomy, and wanders the fringes as an aberration of science. >MORE
PLUTO AND THE GENERATIONS
The Baby Boomer Generation:
Pluto and Leo go well together, NOT. This is a life-or-death challenge, and despite the cat's nine lives, Pluto wins. The people of this generation consolidated to achieve political power and form a youth constituency that terrified the establishment. Leo scares its prey, its opponent. Domination, cult-of personality, and leadership were important issues for Pluto-Leo. The downside is a tremendous ego, which they celebrate in the Eighth House of the Dead, by going back to imitate their ancestors. Being a fixed sign, they can't escape their own history.

The last time Pluto was in Leo was 1701-1721. One look at the clothes and hair of that era tells you a lot about Leo. Ornate, grandiloquent, almost foppish, with great care to make the hair the centerpiece of beauty and awe.
The latest incarnation of Leo is July of 1950 to Oct. of 1968, the generation that grew up to be the hippie youth movement, where hair again was a political statement, as well as personal adornment. Instead of silk and frock coats, this generation chose working class denim and sandals to reject the bourgeois “charcoal gray” suit and wing-tip shoes of the businessman.

In both eras, the rise of a new Leo generation meant revolution and unrest. They seized on the value of breaking ossified laws and stereotypes. They rejected the system and wanted to return to a simpler time, a tribal arrangement. This brought on a new cultural hierarchy with musicians, gurus and shamans captivating the public while privately harboring sex and drug addictions. The Pluto-Leos are defiant, but trapped in the jungle, and the new societies they created were destroyed or self-destructed. The rebellion was just as much an ego trip as it was a cultural leap forward.
Pluto means change is impossible without death, so only adaptation can help the Baby Boomers stay relevant in today's world as they face the grim reaper. They are all in the same boat with the younger generations in a sea of trouble, disruption and insecurity. As the cat loses his teeth and roar, he'll have to move quietly to avoid a gruesome fate courtesy of the Hyenas.
PLUTO VIRGO CLEANS UP THE MESS
When Pluto staggered into Virgo, at the end of 1968, the hippie era had crescendoed, the world woke up to chaos. The younger siblings of the Hippies inherited all the sex, drugs and rock and roll, with Big Hair but without the politics. The “me generation” followed the self-glorification ritual of Pluto-Leo in marketing but not in their purpose. The Virgos played out all the fantasies of the Leo, and were the raw meat for their parent's hyperbole, but in the end Virgos turned against idealism, bravado and hypocrisy, cursing the Baby Boomers and their wretched fallacies. They saw the value of material wealth, security, and sobriety; and they began their own reinvention. Pluto ushered them in as supplicants and servants to the older generations, slaves to the traditions of the dead, but in the end, the earth sign Virgo accommodated to their hellish confusion, and made itself indispensable to it. Better the king rat then the starving lion. >MORE
