New Moon In Aries – April 14, 2010. This month the New Moon enters the sign of Aries signifying a new year, astrologically speaking so remember to plant those seeds of intention in honour of Spring’s arrival! Aries is a cardinal, fire sign and the first sign of the zodiac. This is the sign of the warrior and the pioneer, a courageous sign that seeks out new beginnings, risk and adventure. The shadow side of Aries relates to rage, insensitivity, violence and selfishness (sometimes they can be such babies!) Aries do love a good fight and this can often be a sign of affection, if done playfully.
When the Moon enters Aries on April 14th get ready to:
- get motivated
- awaken your creative urges
- get physical
- react quickly to emotions, attitudes, desires
- try new approaches and discover new outlets
- be open to new adventures
Fire god, fiery goddess,
Red the path to our heart’s desire,
Lead the way to our soul’s fire.

Introducing The Moon Muses
The Moon Muses are intuitive guides and question askers that offer insight and wisdom along with exercises to heal and inspire you. They are creative leap takers forming a glowing moonlit bridge between your rational self and your higher self, a self that dwells in pure intuition, clairvoyance (clear seeing), meditative reflection and dreaming. This month you will meet a Gemstone Muse – The Diamond and Carolee, a Lefty Oracle Muse. I encourage all of you to create a Moon Musing Journal to record your monthly moon explorations (more about this in my eCourse, Awaken the Divine Feminine).
Know ye the path? Don’t listen to strangers - come with me! You may have questions, but throw them up in the air, like this!
See that path - do you wanna good workout, then take that route! If you want more kids, take that route. How ‘bout true love, then take that route! But if you’re looking for Goddess, then stay right where you are and keep reading!
BIG SMILE – yes you! This will be your best trip ever! There are a million directions to go kid, but when you decide which route to take ask yourself this:
Does it glow?
Where is the passion?
The passion is right here – so pluck it like a ripe red rosebud and what do you see? Now acknowledge that vision. I acknowledge _______________________.
Now take a moment to breathe into that rose and then place it between your eyebrows and just above, which is the site of your third eye. Smell it’s sweet fragrance. What does it smell like? You ARE the rose, now go forth and blossom, get outta here! (Grin) And don’t stop until roses are everywhere and you envision that path in front of you.
Sing a tune while you’re at it! “Don’t stop believin’”
“Carolee” is part of a series of left-handed drawings I created over a period of five years. These drawings were later turned into an oracle card deck that I use for soul readings.
Why the horns? (I can hear you asking) – ‘Cause you’re strong and you’ve got a long way to go and I’m gifting you, dear reader with your own set, magically appearing … now! Can you feel them sprouting?
Where am I going?
What journey am I on?
What life have I planned?
What joys await?
What does my soul ache to see?
Now, tell me in one word or less the answer to each of these questions!
Take a moment to envision that journey, that passion, that joy, and tell me, “What colours do you see? What do these colours symbolize to you?” That is your soul speaking.
Now, imagine yourself dressed in a fantastical gown or coat made up of all these colours … yes, this IS your life, and as the creator of your very own world, tell me, “What are ye creating? Do Tell!”
What problems will you be able solve, now that you have acknowledged your own creative brand of genius? Name these problems. How might ye create a solution? Think fast! We’ve not much time!
Now, envision yourself wearing the garb of a Problem Solver Goddess/Genius/Creator – that is YOU! What do you look like? Paint me a picture with words.
One Last Challenge For You:
Make that outfit you’ve just envisioned or find something just like it and become that person … promise!

Kathy is currently teaching “Awaken the Divine Feminine” at the Wise Woman University. “Celebrating the lunar cycles is an important part of building a spiritual framework. Each month we can tune into her cycles to keep ourselves on track. At the new moon we plant our intentions for the month ahead, at the full moon we watch them flower, and at the waning moon we release and share our wisdom with the world. As women we are naturally able to resonate with these cycles in deep and meaningful ways.”
