Sun Transiting Aries; One Power Two Choices

So, right now, we’re at an amazing time in our current annual cycle. Spring began last week, and on the high side, the temperatures have been in the 50s and 60s! It’s great! The overall mood and vibe is totally positive and uplifting.

From an astrological standpoint, the Sun entered Aries on the first day of spring and is now six days into its transit. It’s definitely the standard and seems widely accepted that our zodiac begins on the zero point of Aries, and for the purpose of this post, I’m not going to dispute that, however, extensive research has shown me otherwise.

In fact, long ago, the Sumerians began their zodiac with Taurus. That may or may not have had something to do with the precession of the equinox, I don’t really remember – the point is that different cultures and groups throughout time established their own “zero points.”

Here we are, though, and right now, at this moment, our Sun, our greater light, and giver of life, is making its way through Aries one degree and one day at a time. The polarity of Aries is positive, the element is fire, and it’s one of four cardinal signs. Aries is ruled by the God of war, Mars, and both Mars and Aries are home in the 1st house.

This is besides the point, but I always thought the similarities between the words Mars, Ram, and War were fascinating, especially since they’re all connected to Aries.

Any who, so, red is the color of Aries, and iron is the corresponding metal.

Despite being ruled by Mars, the sign of Aries isn’t always about literally going to war. Part of the reason why for why we seem to have this connection embedded deep within our brains is because our ancient ancestors liked the timing of waging war when the Sun was entering Aries.

Aries is definitely a sign of action, but it also symbolizes the spark of creativity or creation. You see, the Ram doesn’t always have to be about the action to kill; it can be about the action to create.

The Ram symbolizes urgency, courage, and heroism, and it’s through action that its energies are best utilized. Before, I mentioned that Aries was one of four cardinal signs, and the cardinal quality gives Aries the abilities of great leadership. These are the kinds of abilities we find in leaders who are able to make a difference and create change on a global scale because they’re open to the ideals of change itself.

The element here is fire, and whenever fire is the element, we know the sign is highly emotional.

If you add cardinal fire to what the Ram already possesses, like urgency and confidence, you’ll have a tremendous power that can be used for creation or destruction in the hands of an emotional leader with the spirit of a Pioneer.


The parts of the body that are ruled by Aries are the face and head.

The key for Aries is in the head, and if the Ram can learn from those bouts of impulsiveness, he can come back stronger, smarter, and more focused. There’s always a balance that must be learned by fire signs, which involves patience, and that’s because their polar opposites are always air signs. Air signs represent intelligence, so fire signs must find that happy medium between fire that’s focused and directed, and that wildfire that burns out of control and destroys everything around it.

At the end of the day, we are left with one power that gives us two choices; create, or destroy. What will you decide?

Happy birthday season to all the Rams out there, and a big happy birthday to my nephew, who was born on April 1, 2020.

Moon Scope

December 2, 2022 Edition

Hello! Welcome to our first Moon Scope for the month of December.

Tonight’s Moon will be a waxing gibbous with 73% illumination. That means we’re in the middle of a phase that began on November 23rd when the Moon was in Scorpio. The interesting thing about 11/23 is not only was the Moon new, but the Sun entered the first of its seven day transit through Scorpio.

That of course, it the astronomy of the situation. So here we are on December 2nd, astrologically the Sun is in Sagittarius, and Ophiuchus astronomically. This is a sacred time.

Tonight’s Moon will be in the astrological sign Aries, and at this precise moment, the Moon is in Aries in the 11th House.

The Ram is the masculine sign of cardinal fire. It’s energetic, exciting, impulsive, and open to new experiences. It’s assertive and sexual, and although most people associate Aries with war because it’s ruled by Mars, the energy can manifest in other ways.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, it’s a me first sign-it’s all about the self. With the Moon draped in the various shades of red-fire and excitement, the subconscious receives a boost concerning hidden thoughts and feelings pertaining to the self.

What about you? What about me?

If you’ve been putting off, ignoring, or suppressing anything pertaining to you and your needs on a personal level, get ready for a change, or should I say, those around you should get ready. Beginning tonight and continuing probably until the night of the full moon on the 5th, your wants and needs will be the focus.

I know single mothers who are parenting children, and this is the perfect time for them to start thinking about boundaries and personal space. We all need private time, personal space, and an opportunity to take a short break to recoup.

Creating boundaries and establishing personal space grants us personal time, and it’s through that time we address our needs. Take a stand, and put your foot down. Mom needs her time too! Dad needs his time!

For those who are in a relationship, it’s a good time to tell your partner what you’re looking for or what you’re hoping to get out of your union. Relationships should be 50/50. Maybe it’s time to end the relationship all together. Perhaps, things aren’t working out the way you expected-maybe you’d be better off alone or with someone else.

Our careers will be another area affecting by this energy. Most of us feel like we’re overworked and underpaid. When it comes to work specifically, this is one area where we often suppress our needs because we don’t want to make waves. It seems like employers are getting rid of people for every little reason-almost to the point where people are afraid to speak up and ask for what they’re owed or entitled to.

If this is you, speak up. The energy favors you at this time. Talk to your boss about the workload, or the compensation you feel is adequate for what you’re doing. My advice for those who are having these issues at work is to take a moment this weekend. Write down your skills, abilities, certifications, licenses, special training, work experience, etc. Take a look at all that and decide what you’re worth. Draw a line for yourself. Decide what you want to do, and know your worth. It’s best to end certain issues so they don’t keep popping up.

Courage is the Rams best quality. And remember, fire signs are emotional. You could spend this time arguing about what you want, but this emotional energy should be harness and used for taking action. Either way, you will speak up and you will take whatever steps are necessary. The New Year is coming up. It’s the perfect time to think about those resolutions!

I mentioned before, currently, the Moon is in Aries and in the 11th House. The 11th House is about friendships, partnerships and organizations connected to the work you do, and the future. Keep that in mind. It’s about you, and your future.

Friends, Followers, and Fans…

How are you doing this evening?

Happy Tuesday! There are only 15 days left in August. Tonight, the waning gibbous moon will be illuminated at 75% in Aries.

Aries is cardinal fire, and it’s energetic, action-oriented, impulsive, and aggressive. Our normally patient and methodical moon will heat up a bit tonight in Aries, and issues manifesting in the 4th house are bubbling up.

What I see here is a situation that you’ve put some planning and time into. It could be a situation concerning your mother, or it could be a situation pertaining to your home.

Perhaps, there’s something you’ve been wanting to tell or share with your mother, but unfortunately, for whatever reason, the time hasn’t been right. As time has been passing, you took advantage of it by understanding, learning, and getting your facts in order. Tonight’s the night. Share the good news with your mother. Tell her your pregnant! Tell her you love her and appreciate her. When we get older, we change, and sometimes we feel differently about issues from the past because we’re looking at them now from a perspective that’s more mature. Tonight is a good night to resolve issues, and bring whatever is going on between you and your mom to a conclusion.

This could also have something to do with moving. You’ve been apartment hunting and looking for a new place to move to. If you’ve been waiting to hear back from whoever you reached out to, don’t be afraid to reach out them. It’s a good time to move forward finalize deals, close contracts, and bring negotiations to a resolution.

Don’t forget about your roots, and don’t forget about about where you came from. Now that the current moon phase is coming to an end, it’s a good time to revisit your foundation. We all start somewhere, and when we’re struggling or feel stuck, it helps to take drive through the old neighborhood. Look and see from what and where you came, it will certainly bring some perspective to your current position. Maybe, there’s something you forgot about that can still be of value to you.

Switching gears for a second here, Aries is a spring sign, and there’s a lot of love with spring signs. Don’t be surprised if someone from your childhood, or and old classmate from elementary school comes back around and looks GOOD now! My my, how some of us blossom and mature over time. Keep an open mind for love.

Aries is a fire sign so you can expect that whatever is going on right now to be emotionally charged.

Lucky Day: Tuesday

Good Afternoon!

Tonight’s moon will be a waning gibbous illuminated at 71% and declining. The lights are dimming on the previous new moon’s energy, but a new cycle will begin soon. Don’t rush things.

Currently, the moon is in the 6th house of health and service and in the astrological sign, Aries. Have you been thinking about starting a new diet, or beginning a new exercise or weight training routine?

Naturally, Aries is a first house sign so it brings the self into focus concerning matters of health and service to others. With the moon waning, today might not be the best day to move forward with those plans, but it’s a great time to think about them and get a plan written down. Shopping around for places to train, making a list of foods you want to add to your diet to make it healthier, or maybe, you’d like to help others in these areas, either way, it’s all favored now.

What’s really special about the moon’s position right now is that it’s in a conjunction with Jupiter and Neptune. Neptune is our connection to source, it’s our imagination, and inspiration. Jupiter is a benevolent god. He bestows good fortune, prosperity and luck. The alignment is perfect and the energy of the universe is at your back!

You’re health is the most important thing, without it, there’s not much you can do. It’s never to late to get in shape, eat healthier, or help others do the same.

Lucky Numbers for Aries: 1 and 9

Lucky Color: Red


Personally, I see a perfect alignment for what I’m doing right now, especially when you take the moon’s placement in the 6th house into consideration. I’m starting to realize our birth charts may reveal much more than we think. So far, my studies indicate that birth charts may contain certain symbolism that reveals our cosmic roots, and if this is correct, this would be a tremendous service to others.

Have A Great Day!

πŸŒ‘: Tomorrow is the first day of April, and there will be a brand-new moon in Aries. Aries is a fire sign, and don’t forget, the sun is in Aries right now as well. With both luminaries in the astrological sign of Aries, we get in a sense, a double flame. If there was ever a good time to plan a trip, or start something new, this is it.

πŸ’²: Are you wondering what caused the drop in oil prices? They’re saying the Biden administration plans to release 1 million barrels of oil per day from the country’s reserves for the next six months. That’ll do it.

😲: In an article published on the Daily Caller dot com, it was revealed that the skeletal remains of a young man were finally found after four years. Police believe those remains belonged to Jason Michael, who died in 2018. Supposedly, the boy’s father has been storing his body in the kitchen of his home for the las four years. The strange thing about this, well besides the obvious, is that it took place New Boston, Texas, and somehow, it’s connected to a case where six people were found dead in a home in Wisconsin. What’s the connection? I guess we’ll have to follow that story and see what develops.

πŸ›Έ: NUFORC is back in business! Yes, the National UFO Reporting Center updated their site on Friday, March 4, 2022, to include over 1,000 new postings that took place between December 19, 2021, and March 3rd of this year.

Ramming Our Way In

Despite the gloomy day we just had, there’s much to celebrate today as it’s officially Spring.

Back in the day-like way back when armies had to break through fortifications to breech a castle’s grounds, they used battering rams, and if you ever saw a picture of a batter ram from the medieval era, you’ll notice the side they rammed with was shaped like a rams head-hence the name.

The mainstream astrological wheel starts a new cycle today also. The Spring Equinox, not only marks the first day of Spring, but also the sun’s entrance into the astrological sign of Aries. If you look at a chart for today, you’ll notice the sun sitting on the 0 degree, or cusp of Aries.

It’s easy to get confused at this point because Aries looks like April, and both we associate both with the Spring. The first day of Spring is not April 1st, and the beginning of Aries isn’t the beginning of April.

For everyone born on April 1st, your sun is on the 12th degree of Aries. Aries begins today in March on the 20th. So, yes, the sun will remain in Aries until the middle of April, I think the 19th to be exact.

And don’t forget, we just had a full moon on the 19th.

So that means we have the first day of Spring today as the moon wanes down bringing closure to all of our plans that took root at the beginning of March. And then we begin April, a brand-new month with a brand-new moon in Aries!

Have a blessed day tomorrow!


Cardinal Quality

If you’ve been keeping up with the posts here on NB, you probably recall the post “Cardinalis” written a day or two ago. Cardinal comes from the Latin word meaning important, and we learned a little something about the importance of the red bird.

People from all over the world associated with many different cultures, religions, and spiritual practices have different interpretations of a cardinal when it’s spotted, but there’s one thing that cannot be changed or interpreted-the root.

Today, we’ll look at cardinal in a different context. Today, we’ll let the bird go, and turn our attention to the word.

The bird bird bird, the bird’s the word…lol! Just kidding.

Okay, astrologically speaking, the term cardinal is a quality, and it represents a quadruplicity of signs. There are 12 astrological signs, and 4 of them are cardinal. 4 are fixed, and 4 are mutable, but because of the bird, we’re going to focus on cardinal-the astrological quality.

Just to rehash, cardinal comes from the Latin word cardinalis, pertaining to a hinge; applied to that on which something turns or depends. It’s strange how all this stuff ties together, but check this out; Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are the astrological signs that are cardinal, and yes, they’re of great importance. In the northern hemisphere, the sun passes through Aries at the spring equinox, Cancer at the summer solstice, Libra at the time of the autumn equinox, and Capricorn when the winter solstice has arrived.

Applied to that which something turns or depends? Yup! It’s the turning of the seasons, and our calendar system, and means for keeping track of real time depends on the location of these celestial markers…

Symbolism, the human subconscious, deeper meaning-this is all high level thinking, but if we keep connecting dots and pulling at strings, perhaps, someday, all the secrets of the universe will unravel and reveal a complete picture.
