... New Moon reveals the stepping stones to take us into our new directions ... 

This week, April 23rd through April 29th,  begins with Moon shifting into Aries, emphasizing the emerging True Self. Moon connects with Venus to accentuate this entrance and provides the celestial twilight that speaks to the promise and inspiration of good things to come.

Tuesday, Moon connects with Mercury and Uranus, sending messages onto the breeze that begins to blow, ensuring the information moves at a quickened speed, keeping action events stirring.

As the almost Full Moon rises Tuesday evening, the messages continue to blow onto our shore in preparation for the New Moon connection at 6 Taurus. This degree begins where Mercury left off before turning retrograde at 5 Taurus, and will reveal the stepping stones that will take us into our new directions as this New Moon opens the preview of situations to come.   The New Moon occurs early Wednesday morning to signal that the new options are emerging to pull us into our new environment once Mercury turns direct on May 3rd. 

On Friday, Mercury connects with Uranus at 25 Aries, bringing in the information that has been blowing onto our shore all week to give us added clues to the stepping stones that will emerge to take us into the new month and into the shifting winds of Mercury turning direct. The winds will continue to blow in messages as we cross into the month of May and  transitions as Mercury shifts directions.  

NOTE: As we know, Mercury doesn’t actually move backwards, the issue becomes that the Earth’s orbit is moving faster than Mercury and so it “appears” that Mercury is going backwards. The important element is to realize that the Earth is actually moving faster than Mercury, we experience a time when our mental concepts and perceptions are stretching to keep up with the faster moving situations. We can feel as if we are behind the 8-ball, or running to keep up. We realize the outer situations and our inner thoughts are not in the same galaxy. Once Mercury moves behind the Sun (after April 20th) we loose site of our commitment and new direction with the various events that occur.  We feel confused and frustrated as we continue to go faster while rolling on square wheels. Knowing that "not everything is as it seems" helps to maintain an attitude of "calm" until the alignment of Sun and Mercury is regained on May 3rd, as Mercury "appears" to move forward again, in alignment with the Earth.


*The nine-year cycle is created by the numerology of the YEAR, as 2017 is 2 + 0 + 1 + 7, which = 10, 1 + 0 (of the 10) = 1.  In numerology, you add the digits together until you have just one digit.  Each digit has meaning, purpose and qualities associated with the number.  So the last nine-year cycle began in 2008 (which was the last ONE year) and completed the nine-year cycle as 2016 was a NINE year.  Numerology has a nine-year cycle and provides a great deal of information about situations that begins with the current the ONE universal year of 2017 and completes in the NINE universal year of 2025.
