The moon and my birthday

topic posted Mon, March 17, 2008 - 12:07 PM by  Unsubscribed
It's a full moon on the 21, the spring equinox, and a new moon on April the 6 which happens to be my birthday! I'll be 41 and I'm curious about what the new moon might mean.

I also discovered that my all time favourite film, 2001 A Space Odyssey, went on general release April-6 1968 exactly a year after my birth. Hmm kinda interesting especially when you consider the final scene of 2001.

Here's my natal chart:

        Patrick Welcome,

        the new moon has a collective meaning as well as an individual meaning - in your natal chart Aries rules the 4th house (home, foundation)

        New Moon always signals "new" things. The eclipse is like a Cosmic light switch being thrown on in an area of our lives that needs to be seen and highlighted.

        The Meaning of the Moment

        "This is the New Moon for fresh starts. Aries represents the inner child; that amazingly trusting, innocent soul that lives within each of us. Even in the worst of times, it is important to be aware of the ever-present humor that exists in the darkest moments of our lives. After all, the greatest comedy does arise from the deepest tragedies. I realize innocence is hard to conjure up when the world is in such disarray, but this is the only New Moon of the year when we get to start all over again. If this past year has left you feeling beaten down, depressed, and physically or emotionally wounded, this is the New Moon to start anew. When darkness comes into our lives, we must remember that the dawn will eventually come.This New Moon is the rising sun, the light at the end of the tunnel, the beginning of your journey back to wholeness. It is a refreshing and joyful New Moon. Winter is over! Renewal has arrived!"

        As a child, my interest in astrology was probably seeded by my fascination with the planets and the stars in having myths behind them
        and my early introduction to and from a planetarium. I loved studying Cosmology and then Astrology, my 4th house is Aquarius

        While our western calendar is arbitrary, with the first of the month rarely coinciding with the sun/moon cycle; Egyptians, Asians, Muslims, Jews, Native Americans, Hindus, and all of those which practice the Moon Lunar religions were all joined to the Kemet calendar in orienting to the cycles of the moon. Each month when the sun and moon come together, there is an opportunity for renewal, a new beginning. How cool is that?

        "On an Aries New Moon your intention is best released with these qualities in mind: spontaneity, wonder, curiosity, adventurousness, and innocence. There are few times in an adult life when we can begin anew without dragging along our past pain, fear and worries. But this is the New Moon is to strive for releasing your intention with childlike hopefulness and inner faith. Know that what comes from your strong intention will be evolutionary, supportive and…. well, a big adventure! So smile and let it fly!"

        "During this New Moon, the spotlight shines on your needs. It's "me" time. Meanwhile, the "we" is tugging at your sleeve, wanting to talk talk talk, when all you want is to do do do. Now is not the time to start something new, as much as to recognize how you've been neglecting your impulses to carve out your own direction in life.

        Doing your own thing does not necessitate moving out or moving on (though it could). However, to maintain an independent spirit within a relationship, you have to make sure you don't neglect the needs of your partnership. There's no easy formula, Each relationship is its own ecosystem, and you have to figure out how to maintain homeostasis. A general rule of thumb, though, is that too much time either separate or together can threaten the delicate balance."

          Your 4th house actually begins at the end of Pisces, but your Sun, Saturn, and the majority of the house is Aries

          The Fourth House
          House of Family and Home (our inner foundation)

          The Fourth House is commonly referred to as the House of Home. When we think of home, we think of that place where we put down our roots. We lay our foundation and plant ourselves firmly into the Earth, as it were. One day, we will return to that very same Earth. The Fourth House brings things full circle by also addressing old age, endings and our final resting place.

          Much of the emphasis of the Fourth House, however, is on the concept of home. By laying down roots, we make a home for ourselves, or more specifically, the self. It's worth noting that in addition to the external home (all the bricks and mortar around us), we have really brought the essential self home. 'I'm home.' The words themselves have a peaceful ring to them. The self is now centered, grounded, one and at peace with the Earth. We seek to come home both physically and psychically, for ourselves and for those we love. By creating home, we create a meeting place, a sanctuary, a sacred place for ourselves and for others.

          In our home, we integrate the self with all that has come before us and helped to shape what we are today. We create a domestic space which comforts and nurtures us and serves to keep safe those we love. Also important here are family history, cultural and societal norms, and ways of being. All of these are ruled by the Fourth House, as are our ancestry, roots and heritage. These qualities are brought 'home' through us and integrated into the place we call home.

          Helping to create the home we make are our parents, for it is they who greatly nurture and shape our being. Therefore, the Fourth House can also be thought of as the House of the Mother, the Parent or the Nurturer.

          Looking at things from a strictly tangible point of view, we can see that the Fourth House also encompasses physical structures (houses) and real estate. The Fourth House represents family, history and traditions. All of these contribute to the process of becoming a true, actualized and individualized self. This is how we come home. ;-)

          The Fourth House is ruled by the Sign Cancer and the Moon.

            Esoteric Meaning,,,

            THE FOURTH HOUSE

            Traditional meaning Soul-Centered meaning

            Biological inheritance Biological karma
            Mother and immediate family The World Mother, the Group Soul (source of our Soul brothers and sisters)
            Psychological foundations Foundation for the building of self-consciousness
            Endings Karmic conclusions to life circumstances
            Home Ashram of the Master, spiritual home of the Disciple

            The personality is totally shaped by the influences of the first seven years of life. These factors (especially the relationship with one’s mother), condition the behavioral factors of one’s life to a very large degree. Added to this are inherited, biological dynamics found in our genes and chromosomes. As long as we consciously and unconsciously identify with these factors as the sum total of our being, we are never, ever free to individualize our natures as conscious co-creators.

            In terms of the Soul, the Fourth House connects the individual to the Mother Principle of life. We are then linked by an “umbilical chord of consciousness” to the Family of (Wo) Man. We see no separation between the races, hold no tribal prejudices, fear no lack of personal nourishment, have no sense of rejection. We approach The Mother as Anima Mundi (“The Soul of the World”). She is the home of the Master. Once we are safe and secure, anchored in our foundation of Mother’s Love, we may then proceed towards our Path of self-actualization and individualization.

                Thank you God Star very good interpretation. I intuitively felt that this time was going to be a time of transformation and a kind of fulcrum point of my life. The transformation of my physical home and my physical body are apparent and bound together as are the shedding of skins facilitated by divine love. I have said recently that it's somewhat like being born anew, innocent and without doubt and fear.

                Just for you own studies I had an intense physical experience on the 17 of January this year. I can only explain the experience as an awakening of my kundalini and I though that I was going to die with the pain of ten-thousand flaming swords shooting up through my body every minute for about 24hours. In the depth of the night alone I had to face, without fear, a fight to bring the fire under control as it climbed further up my body towards my head. I gritted my teeth and fought the pain which was more intense than ever. Obviously I won but it took me three weeks to recover and I couldn't get out of bed for the first three days.

                Also for those interested I've been decorating and generally tidying up my home over the last six months which I see as a purging of the past and a new beginning. I was born at home and had a rather difficult childhood so the changes I'm making to my home are having a physiological impact/effect.
