Sebastopol, CA. ~ So here we are on the tidal edge of a new astrological year. Pisces cloaks its last stand with a dream-like presence offering a shimmer- ing portent of things to come. Because the cycle is always a circle –we can feel the quickening heat of the first sign of the zodiac the


ram. Senses alert us that that most magical of transi- tions is about to -spring. But there is still lots of mist around. You can almost hear the communications of the darting Piscean fish zig zagging in the bright beams of light seeking safe shadows to gather their thoughts for the new year. If you directly have aspects

of Aries in your make up (birth chart) your percolation should be exceptionally bubbly right about now. Our sure-footed ram is all about action. One could even say it’s getting heady, which would fit the Aries very well, as the first sign rules the head. Timing

is everything

though. The true Aries arrives in our Northern Hemisphere as the first day of our new years’ spring on the 20th of March at

and complete the task at hand. You, of anyone, can do this! Then you can swim over to your fa- vorite


regroup and un- wind a bit. And to you Aries’ You

can unwind better still in this transition time by gathering and soothing yourself, knowing that come the winds of spring, you will give free rein to a flow of new, creative energy that even you did not expect to have this year!

I myself have two major

aspects of Aries in my natal chart- the Moon and Mars, the true ruler of Aries. As a writer and extremely feeling child, my emotions ran high. These two aspects, the Moon and Mars fall into my 5th house. This house is ruled by Leo/ the Sun/ the King as well as amusement and entertainment.

This certainly

fits the bill of my make-up. You may relate if you have aspects in this house as well. The moon, however is usually representative of the feminine, so having her in my 5th house served in my case to teach me how to both mother and father myself. This might be the most pressing thought/question fac- ing men today; how we mix strength,

sensitivity and ego

into one. I like Blending my heroes; a little from the com- ics, some celluloid, a dash of pulp, sprinkle of Rumi- throw the whole thing into my lone- silver bullet blender and down the hatch! Since I have touched on plan-

ets (as we group them under aspects) a good start in learn- ing about astrology is to know your own sun sign. Think about friends, family and people you come in contact with who are also your sign. Even though you may have major and mi- nor differences in the complete chart, you will begin to sense a resonance, a flavor, an aroma of
