Moon in Aries - The moon will leave its emotional dreamy transit of Pisces early this afternoon and then later in the afternoon enter the fiery Aries zodiac sign. Moon in Aries is a time of new beginnings, intense activity, pioneering in any field, reaching out with emotional surges, and impulsiveness. This moon transit can e a great tester of limits. When the Moon enters the Aries transit you may want to depend on yourself, as there is also a certain amount of ego involvement. You will probably feel impatient and want to initiate new things. Aries asks us to wake up from our dreamy, psychic drift through the Pisces transit and remember who we truly are, even if bothers those we love or work for.
Tempers, tears and passion run hot during a Aries transit. Aries moon is based on impulsiveness and acting on feelings of the moment, rather than the result of reason. Sometimes snap decisions are made - later to be regretted. The force of Aries is felt in emotional surges, whereby we are highly assertive and enthusiastic. Selfishness could be an issue, so be extra sensitive to others. This is good time to lay new groundwork on the goals of lunar cycle - tomorrow is the Gibbous moon phase, so energies will be picking up a lot. Those who are born with an Aries Moon sign in their birth charts came here searching for fire, fierce independence and their own voice. They may need to learn patience and cooperation. They can appreciate our own fire. Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion, or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head or brain are also done during this period of time.
So here it is Tiu's Day - Mars Day, the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion and Desire - Action Day. There will be Major magickal energies for rites/spells dealing with Competition and Personal Advocacy after the moon goes void of course and approaches and enters Aries. So this evening may be a good time to do a spell or a rite for these matters.
"Goddess, help me to meet the test
as I bring forth my very best.
Reward if you will
with lesson or prize,
win or lose, but, please no ties."
From "Season of the Witch Datebook, 2010
The term 'work for life balance' is currently fashionable, reflecting the daunting realization that there may be more to life than the acquisition of wealth and possessions. The concept of balance is one of the keys to the Craft. Furthermore the Craft is about living as a part of life rather than apart from it. These two concepts should be applied to the balance we seek in our daily lives, as an emphasis on any one part of life can be detrimental to the other parts.
It is useful, occasionally, to step back and assess our lives; to examine whether we are doing the things which benefit us, or expending our energies on the things which are no longer relevant or important. There are many ways of doing this but the one of the ways to try is writing down lists of the ways you spend your time and then reviewing them against an other list of the things you think are important in your life. Of course we cannot only do that which we enjoy, as there are some things which have to be done. But, unless you are very organized you will find that there are some things on which you spend time and effort which are neither necessary nor desirable. There are the things on which we expend useful time and energy, but from which we need to consider extricating ourselves. This does not mean you should completely stop being helpful to others, but that perhaps you should bring this into balance with the rest of your life.
"Learn to say 'no' to those requests and
demands which do not enhance you."
