Astrological Insights… Beginning of 2014

By now, most of you have probably already heard that 2014’s New Year starts out with w/a POWERFUL New Moon. A New Moon happens on New Years Day about once every 19 years. The first New Moon of this year will be at 3:14am PST. This is a good time to Set Intentions. Commence new things. Start new paths.

We had a New Moon on New Years Day in 1995… & we’ll have another one on New Year’s Day in 2033.

As we get into 2014, we’ll have the moon’s growing energy to support us with our New Year’s Resolutions… & in attaining what we seek.

This New Moon is also significant & intense because it is strongly connected with the Uranus/Pluto square that runs through 2015 (& persists in transition through 2016). The Uranus/Pluto square relates to transforming structures & making breakthroughs. Wanting things to change & wanting it now.

The Uranus/Pluto square also happened in the “Great Depression” of the 1930’s. If you have planets in the mid-degrees of any of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), get ready for a wild transformational ride.

With the New Moon becoming part of this strong configuration, we see the breakdown of the old along with the breakthrough of the new. We may see a more clear and direct focus on what is dying in our lives… & what is simultaneously being birthed.

Anything that is out of alignment, toxic, stagnant, stuck, or no longer working… is being highlighted & brought to the surface so we can truly find new ways to operate.

Wake up, shake it up, break it up.

In 2014, the Uranus/Pluto square is also part of a Cardinal Grand Square (also known as a “Grand Cross”). We’ll have Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, & Pluto in Capricorn (all in the mid-degrees of Cardinal signs).

Since September, Jupiter has been squaring the Uranus/Pluto square. Jupiter “expands” whatever it makes contact with, so energy has been building since early this Fall….energy to make much needed shifts.

Mars entered Libra this December… & will be part of the Grand Cross until mid-July of 2014. It is the “Trigger Point Planet,” bringing immediate action to the table. April 20th-22nd are the most INTENSE days of this Grand Cross, as all 4 planets will be making an EXACT square at 14 degrees of each Cardinal sign then. It is a year of PARADIGM SHIFTS. April is a highpoint.

Mars in Libra seeks peace, harmony, & balance… but in a Grand Cross configuration w/the heavyweights of Jupiter & the Uranus/Pluto square, we may become more acutely aware of some of our own internal challenges (like how we hold ourselves back or get in our own way). This challenging configuration may highlight our weak spots, but could also give us opportunities to push past them & heal what we have long wished to overcome.

Rather than staying stuck & wounded, choose a vibration that will allow you to evolve & grow beyond where you’ve been. This year is a time for real NEW beginnings (especially from now until April).

Being that New Moons are a dark phase of the Moon, allow a little bit of light in to our inner shadows. See the long road of transformation ahead & the opportunities to shine light inward, downward, outward, & upward. It may feel like a very volatile time of change for some, but a welcome shift for others. Strike the right balance on this New Year’s New Moon… & get your New Year off on the right track.

It can be an auspicious transformational year of power & grace. Allow yourself to let go what no longer serves & to grow in ways you have always wished.
