How's my appearance?

New Moon Aries

In astrology, the first house is ruled by Aries and it rules appearance and the personality we project to the world. The sign on the cusp of the first house is the essence we project. It has all the power of Aries behind it and since Aries is instinctual, we can’t help but project it. The deeper self is reflected in other areas of the chart.

By all means it’s a good practice to pay attention to the way we look and the way we project ourselves into the world. All of the great masters have encouraged us to be happy and well-presented. Meher Baba once told his followers, “If you don't want to be old before you really ought to become old, be cheerful in deed, thought, word and in appearance — most of all in appearance. Maybe you are not happy. I always find half of you garlic-faced. When you eat garlic it is a smell passed on to all; so when you appear garlic-faced, that too is catching — it is contagious. It is a divine art to look always cheerful. It is a divine quality. It helps others. When you are garlic-faced it makes others unhappy.”

Sit with everyone you meet,

New Moon Pisces

as though they were an old friend.

This is the message of this month’s New Moon in Pisces, and it involves such surrender. Can we drop the pretense? Can we stand the silence? Can we relax at all? We live in a very high-strung world. Have we forgotten how to settle, even over lunch with a friend?

This New Moon is highly stimulated from the sidelines from Uranus in Aries. And that can go one of two ways. Uranus breaks down barriers, and Aries is courageous and empowered.

Uranus can also be frenzied and rebellious, and Aries can be headstrong, composed action easily disrupted.

Back to the beach chairs if you will. Let’s say your good-ole friend says something to stir you. Do you allow this energy to stir you or do you simply smile and hold the ocean in your gaze, and wait for your friend to say, “I didn’t mean that,” and for your reply, “I know.”

Sudden Insight

New Moon Aquarius

Light Bulb Moments

It’s time to carry a note pad, maybe tie it around your neck. The 3x5 size is a little less distracting than the 11x8, but do what ya gotta do to keep up with these flashing insights. Aquarian insights pop in quick and then they’re gone, in a flash. Ever have an idea and before you can write it down its gone - like turning on a lamp and having the bulb pop and flash and there you are standing in the dark, momentarily stunned. This is Aquarius, and it is especially prevalent with this New Moon.

Let's slow it down a bit this year...

January New Moon 2014

It might save us a few headaches.

Today’s New Moon, in Capricorn, could very well set the pace for the first six months of 2014. Capricorn is not known for roaring ahead. With Capricorn, slow and steady wins the race, and with the forecast ahead it appears that we’re all being asked to slow down in 2014, and I’ll explain.

Do you sweat to seek the truth and...

December New Moon 2013

nothing but the truth?

Today we have an opportunity to absorb the lessons of Sagittarius and once again affirm our intention to seek truth, speak truth, and to live truth.

With the body of a horse and the head of a man, mythology describes Sagittarius as the constant seeker. But what is it that we are seeking? That depends on how we express the archetype of Sagittarius. Like all archetypes, expression runs the gamut from shadow to light, and that’s built right into the myth. Who is in control of the Sagittarian’s arrow so tightly drawn, the body or the head? Is the arrow’s passion motivated by the body’s wants, perhaps power, fame, glory, greed, lust…. or is the mind focused on the desire for truth? And… is not the attainment of a focused mind the journey of every man? Sagittarius is the sign associated with discipleship, and we can understand why.
