Astrology Article: Seeking a New Dimension in Consciousness
We have reached the first New Moon after the Spring Equinox. With it comes the power and potency of a new cycle of growth. I especially appreciate this New Moon following the beginning of Spring, because it amplifies an intense emerging of the desire to become something greater.
This year the past two weeks, following the Full Moon, have held a unique form of difficulty, since they coincided with the Spring Equinox. The experience of difficulty is related to energies moving in opposite directions. Let me explain what constitutes these two opposing directions, and how they help us prepare for the Aries New Moon.
The Necessary Challenge
During the natural letting-go period of the waning Moon (Mar 16 – 30) we also experienced a significant expansive event on March 20, when the Sun crossed the midpoint between Winter and Summer Solstice and entered Aries. This point of Spring Equinox initiates a new annual cycle and carries an intense, re-vitalizing, and expanding new Solar Energy.
So for the past few days we have been caught in two tides: the waning Moon is letting go, while the new energy of Aries is expanding. Both waves are happening simultaneously. The usefulness of understanding these opposing energies can’t be emphasized enough.
At the New Moon the expansive energies of Spring Equinox will begin to become fully realized. The anticipation if these New Moon energies, for some people, can feel almost overwhelming. The necessary letting go can also be confusing. When you understand the cycle you can appreciate the way in which your consciousness is being primed to experience the magic which is about to happen with this New Moon.
The Gift of the Aries New Moon
One of the basic themes of Aries is the desire to emerge into something new and exciting.
“Emerging into something greater” is the special magic of these days following Spring Equinox. During this phase of the Sun’s journey, your eagerness for new experiences and new activities is at the highest levels of the entire year.
The current New Moon energies not only incorporate this increased level of desire for something new, but specifically support a desire for new experiences that will expand your consciousness. In fact, there is the possibility for you to experience a completely new dimension of consciousness emerging within.
You can see from the chart that the Moon in Aries is conjunct Uranus in Aries. This powerful relationship means that there is support from your Higher-self for the dramatic changes beginning to occur within your psyche.
It’s also worth noting that the conjunction of Sun, Moon, and Uranus are forming a T-square with Jupiter and Pluto. This is an extremely beneficial pattern. Jupiter is helping to expand your consciousness, while Pluto adds a practical usefulness to Jupiter’s insight and revelation. Pluto is offering a skillful application of Jupiter’s ability to expand consciousness.
The entire T-square pattern leads to new forms of clairvoyance and a holistic perception. This allows for your expanding perceptions to be supported by reality and grounding in new experiences.
New Symbols for New Consciousness
The overall pattern of the New Moon suggests support for expanded awareness of symbols and archetypes, and new meanings and language for cultural ideas. These new dimensions of consciousness will mean different things for different people. They may include new archetypes, new ways of thinking, new perceptions of reality, and new awareness and meaning of daily experiences.
Archetypes are encoded symbolic language that help us connect to larger realities.
For example, everyone has a slightly different meaning to the archetype or symbol of the “animal instincts” you carried within. Religious teachings often hold the symbolism to mean an evil or sinful nature. In contrast, many modern and ancient teachings understand the expanded view – that your animal nature gives you access to the body’s wisdom, and guiding principles from the Devic kingdoms of the Earth.
It’s important to realize that the meaning of archetype, symbols, and ideas are meant to change as consciousness evolves. My point is that our current astrological pattern is supporting positive change.
Any desire in the coming days for new activity or new experience is fueling the beginning of an expansion of consciousness. Through new activity you have the opportunity to establish new or deeper meaning for old symbols, which in turn will help your expansion of consciousness into new dimensions.
Some practical ways to understand these New Moon energies center around the following:
- An awareness that developing new areas of consciousness are astrologically supported.
- The understanding that what is released at New Moon is in the form of a seed which needs nurturing for growth and expansion to occur.
- A releasing of old ideas gives room for new ideas or at least a deeper level of meaning to emerge.
- The energy of this New Moon holds an element of abstraction. What the New Moon is releasing is the possibility for your current symbols, which are abstract by nature, to be transformed with deeper meaning or an expanded point of view.
If this feels abstract, remember that any desire for new experiences can easily translate into new activity, which in turn, expands your consciousness.
