When the Moon is in Aries


When the Moon is in Aries

The Mood of Aries

The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to “go with the flow” of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

If you’re following the Moon, see if you don’t sense the mood change from dreamy and diffuse Pisces to fired up Aries. It brings emotional vitality and the drive to act on feelings. The Moon in Aries speeds up instinctual reactions, and might put us in an edgy, punchy mood. We’re restless to start something! It’s a good time for firsts that mean facing your fears. That butterflies in the stomach feeling let’s you know you’ve shoved off from your own comfort zone.

There’s a spark of momentum that is like the thrust of Spring, or the lusty look in a young lover’s eye. It fosters the desire to keep things simple, and do more than you talk about doing. If you’re one that sits a lot, this is a great time to move the gams or take a challenging martial arts class.

Doing something out of the ordinary, that has a physical component, is very satisfying under an Aries Moon.

This can be an emotionally cathartic few days. Instead of sidling up to a problem, you can attack it head on. If you’ve been bottling up righteous anger, this Moon gives you the courage to let the truth fly. It brings out the “fight” in everybody. Getting into it with others is always risky, but it provokes change, and sometimes for the better.

It’s a great time to have an opening for an art show, a business, or to sell your house. It supports you if you’ve got to be dynamic, for a job interview or on a date.

You can go ahead and start that project or try to sell your idea to others. Quick short activities are favored, rather than doing any tedious footwork. You can encourage a friend, work on self-promotion materials, or throw a party.

There’s urgency with this Moon that can lead to impulsive acts. You might do some soul searching on what you’d do if you could do anything. Aries is an invincible energy that has an innocent belief that anything is possible.

When the Moon is in Aries, it’s a good time to dream big, and soul search for your passions.

Daily Motivator for Aug. 4 – Worth it

Worth it

A life of achievement and fulfillment is a lot of trouble and inconvenience.  Go to the trouble, and deal with the inconvenience, because it’s the quality of  your precious life that’s at stake.

Moving in the direction of your dreams can be complicated, challenging, risky  and tedious. Jump right in and do it anyway, because your real, authentic dreams  are worth it.

You must pay a substantial price to live true to your highest vision of life.  Yet that price is a bargain compared to the alternative of a life with meager  fulfillment.

Instead of avoiding the challenges and complaining about them, see those  challenges for what they are. They are pathways to valuable and meaningful  achievement.

It’s a lot of trouble to live with integrity and passion and purpose. And you  are very much worth the trouble.

A life that demands much of you is a life that offers the greatest richness.  For in meeting those demands, you immerse yourself in all that richness.
