I missed the earlier moons this month, apologies for that. I was contemplating stopping my moon reflections, because there are so many good astrologers out there, but I like recording them for my own notes, so I’m going to recommence.
The first post I’ve read is Lynda Hill’s Sabian Symbols: Silent Moments & New Inspiration & Rewriting The Stories: The Aquarian New Moon. The reading is particularly relevant to me because this moon has aspects to many points in my chart. This moon is opposite my Mars, and as you can read, this means Venus and Pluto are conjunct my Mars at this time. I’ve been enjoying a lot of solitude and reflecting.
The astrologers I like best are empowering. Unlike the old school, fatalist astrologers, they make the planet’s movements like weather predictions, it’s not prohibitive, just helps you to make the most of the conditions, or as today with a dark moon, explains why I’m a bit tired and allows me to know at 8.30ish tomorrow morning I’m going to be refreshed by the new moon. I’ve also been enjoying learning about my own chart and how I express that and how I could better.
I started an online course earlier this month through Good Vibe Astrology. It’s being led by one of my favourite astrologers, who also writes terrific books, Kim Falconer. The Path to Abundance has deepened my knowledge and enthusiasm for astrology and has really supported me to ‘rewrite my story’ at this time of personal change in my life. I enjoy listening to Kim’s voice on the recordings and I frequently smile – her joy is contagious and her I can hear a deep knowledge of astrology that inspires confidence.
