Henry Seltzer – The First Quarter Moon taking place in the early morning hours of Friday, March 27th, is quite an interesting lunation, in part because it occupies the psychic space between two eclipses. The Sun and Moon in early Aries and Cancer, respectively, also simultaneously aspect Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, being at the degree that is in the middle of their two degrees. The Aries Sun makes a forming semi-sextile to Neptune and remains trine Saturn within a degree and a half, while the Moon trines Neptune and is inconjunct to Saturn. The Uranus-Pluto square is not triggered by these aspects, although the transformational impact of these two powerhouse planets remains quite potent, since they are still less than half a degree apart, in the wake of the recent perfection of their square, ten days ago on March 16th.
We are definitely caught in the midst of powerfully transformative times, and we all need to step up to the plate and take action in our individual lives if we are to save ourselves and our earthly environment. We benefit when we can recognize that we all make a difference, no matter how remote we might feel from the decisions of governments and corporations that seem to control our very future. We are each immensely influential, emblematic of the entire collective; with each individual act a symbolic one. It really is true, as the NY Times remarked in 2003, that the other super-power on the planet is the power of public opinion.
