Aries New Moon ~ Starcodes April 8, 2021 Heather Roan Robbins

What does it mean to rebel? The coming new Moon in Aries wants to know. What we choose to rebel against is personal for each person. Do we rebel against an oppressive situation, against the world’s destruction? Or do we just get difficult and contrary. Do we rebel against the encroaching disease by getting the vaccine, can we rebel against pandemic depression by creating new opportunities? …


Mercury into Aries — Starcodes April 2, 2021 Heather Roan Robbins

This spring demands fresh honesty, we want to know what actually happened and what’s really going on. We want to hear from our beloveds and share what is on our minds. Some new truths come to the surface this weekend which can both clear up some misunderstandings but could also intensify conflict as mental Mercury sextiles Pluto, the detective, then joins the Sun and Venus in direct, low-impulse-control, Aries, on Saturday night.

This Aries line-up encourages us to be competent and independent. but heats up our passionate response, whether…

Aries energy now courses through each crocus bulb, each burgeoning twig. We can also feel bursts of energy where we’re excited, and feel a nap coming on when we’re bored or disappointed; Aries energy pulses 0 to 60 with little in between. This Aries energy builds our momentum but we may not be realistic about where we’re headed what happens next as Mercury conjuncts inspiring but confusing Neptune in Pisces this week. …

We are on the cusp of spring; the Sun enters Aries on Saturday morning. Aries’ symbol is the ram, embodying that act first and think later spring enthusiasm. Notice a rush of energy and awakening after the sleepy introverted time of Pisces. Venus joins the Sun in Aries on Sunday and our hearts look to the future.

Aries infuses us with the bravery of a crocus pushing through snow, the courage to start over like the trees recovering from winter and animals awakening from hibernation. …

This week seeps in like the dregs of melting snow, soaks in, then builds new growth as the week goes along. Friday starts the weekend with lingering low-energy, a dreamy, intuitive, leaky, and magical, if easily exhausted mood, under the dark of the Moon.

Saturday brings a pre-dawn New Moon in Pisces and initiates a wonderfully sensitive and fertile time. Plant soft thoughts and kind words. Plant the seeds of creativity and sketch out where the garden goes or sketch in the bones of a new painting. Feel seeds being planted for a…

We are deep in Pisces season this week, and can feel drifty, foggy, a bit out of the loop. The last leaves on the winter’s trees and the first green shoots are being eaten by the deer. It’s a low energy time of the year, great for curling up with a book or catching up with our art supplies, any form of creative puttering can help with moments of melancholia as the Sun, Venus and Neptune all run together in sensitive Pisces and the Sun conjuncts diffusing Neptune.

This low-energy time of year…

The Moon waxes full in Virgo this weekend; we may just get cranky, feel the first stirrings of spring cleaning or enjoy the early sparks of flirtatious spring fever.

This full Moon asks us what needs clearing, is it the dust from our minds, bitterness from our heart? Does our diet need to be refreshed, our politicians winnowed, or is it just our closets or desk that need decluttering. Virgo energy can be nervy, prickly, editorial, or creatively heart-centered, it’s up to us which way we play it. …

If we find ourselves just walking around in circle, forgetting what we were about to do, let’s just laugh and enjoy the journey. Expect strange rhythms, odd delays, and swirling misunderstandings as Mercury appears to hold still this weekend, often the most difficult time of a Mercury retrograde cycle. It’s a tricky time to coordinate recovery in a frozen southern state with a fractured infrastructure, Mercury likes to move — and would rather move backwards than hold still. …

Valentine’s Day can be an excuse to hold ourselves up to an ideal of cuddly pink heart scenarios and perfect understanding, judge our life thereby and find it wanting. Aquarius wants us to think so much bigger than that. The Sun, retrograde Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are all now in philosophical Aquarius an, instead of that comparison, want us to contemplate big questions around compassion, collective purpose, responsibility. What is love?

Aquarius can help us explore agape -empathic universal love- unconditional love of our family- help us come to love ourselves and…

The stars loan us a wandering, rather mellow, if inefficient mood this week, and that mellowness can help with mid-winter ennui, and a series of logistical snags. We’ll usually get along fairly well if we don’t stubbornly square off in our political or philosophical opinions. But that’s a big if.

With Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, the sun, and retrograde Mercury all now in collaborative, opinionated air sign Aquarius, the mood will be generally cooperative and openminded- unless pushed, and then incredibly stubborn. Mercury retrograde can be a real trickster and air signs highlight travel…
