Aries Moon always wants its way; the child that holds his/her breath until they get what they want. This is a passionate and enthusiastic eclipse that is encouraging us to be trailblazers in whatever area Aries rules in our charts. Aries energy is notorious for its wild impulsiveness (Jackie Chan, known for his death-defying stunts, is an Aries) and is more than likely the guy doing wheelies on his motorcycle without a helmet. We’re feeling bold and more than ready to take some risks. Saturn’s trine to the Aries Moon provides a much-needed safety net for our reckless antics, but be mindful of what you say and how you say it with the Moon’s opposition to Mercury. Being diplomatic and biting our tongue may be a bit of a challenge with the dark goddess, Lilith, in Libra. We desperately want to play nice (like most Libras) but the fiery Aries energy may possibly win in the end. Intimate relationships may be challenged as well with Juno in Libra conjunct the Sun, opposite Moon/Vesta. There’s a tug of war between wanting to belong and the sacred need for independence. The challenge is how do we focus on ourselves (Aries) without shutting others (Libra) out.
