And some of you need more time and since you can take up until Full...go for it.
But it is nice on Crescent Moon to share your boards. If you can invite a friend over to see your's please consider it. Or send an image of it to a friend.
And please feel free to post it here, if you wish!
I would love to see them. You can do it anonymously if you wish.

Yesterday, the moon entered Taurus (6:09am EDT March 28). Phew! I felt the energy shift in my house. Yes, we are all lippy and cheeky with one another but then what do you expect during the Aries cycle? But there has been a shift of energy---a "Let's get shit done." Or, if you will, "I'm done talking about it so let's get it done!"

Is there anyone left on God's Green Earth who does not know about Treasure Maps on Aries NEW MOON? Sure. I guess there are some people stumbling on to this page for the first time. Good for you!
To read more about TREASURE MAPS go HERE
Anyway, tomorrow we will launch our Treasure Maps for 2009. Make it a good one! Also, go read my Aries New Moon Article. You can find the link on the post just below this one.---Tracy
Heck no! I would also encourage you to focus on beliefs and environments. Affirmations like “I’m abundant” or “I am always feeling loved” “My health is vibrant.” “My partner and I are always growing closer and closer.”
Good luck and dream big!
As you know I turn in a full New Report each month over at Margaret Wendt's website. You can find the whole article HERE. I strongly encourage you to read the whole thing! But here is a snippet:
VENUS & MERCURY CHARMING THE PANTS OFF US
On Aries New Moon we will have a most beautiful conjunction of Mercury in Aries and Venus in Aries to the Sun and the Moon. Mercury rules our minds and thoughts. It is the way we communicate. It is our siblings, it is our neighbors it is our newspapers (Hey do those still exists?) it is the letters we write. It is emails. Of course, Venus is love and it is beauty. It is one of the “money” planets since Venus is the planet of values. Aries of course is the sign of breaking new ground (remember the plants bursting through the ground) Our thoughts will be grand perhaps rash. Our love will be quick and to the point. Our desires and emotions will be both hot and bothered. Clearly having those four planets together can bring great enthusiasm and could be fun. Accent on ‘could’ since at the same time, Aries is a fiery sign and when you get those four together someone will be inclined to play with matches! Who is shooting off their mouth? Who is sloppy with money? Who forgot to check their ego at the door? And who has gone overboard with their emotions?
Expect a lot of noise out of Wall Street on Aries New Moon. Some of it harsh given Venus and Mercury will also be making an aspect with Pluto! There could be a rash act. There might be something burned. On a personal level, expect some snippiness from friends or family, maybe a sharp word or two. Not necessarily out of mean-spiritedness but just more because people don’t feel they have time for a lot of bullshit. And they call it the way they see it. Which leads me to a bigger discussion.
This Treasure Map-Aries New Moon is one of the most potent maps I have seen. Perhaps ever. And if you can bear with me for a minute I would like to give a bit more astro talk than usual.
PLUTO POINTS THE WAY
Despite astronomers demoting Pluto to a dwarf planet, astrologers know it is Pluto that has caused all the financial wreckage since fall. You may remember back in August when I wrote (Virgo New Moon) that as soon as Pluto turned direct on September 8th and began its trek for Capricorn that he would not take any hostages. Pluto destroys that which is weak or corrupt so that it can be turned around and rebuilt. Since Pluto has not been in Cap since the 1700’s, it clearly had a lot of work to do! As it turned out Fannie and Freddie imploded on September 8th ---and the rest is history— dwarf planet indeed!
Now, in November Pluto finally moved into Capricorn where it is remaining until 2023. This means that every Treasure Map-(Aries New moon) runs a risk of being at odds with Pluto. Again, more astro talk--- Aries and Capricorn do not get along. They both want to be in charge, they both think they are sharper than each other. Aries thinks Capricorn is a stick in the mud and Capricorn thinks Aries is too hot headed and rash. When these two planets are in close degree to one another they make an aspect called a SQUARE. Simply said, Squares are a pain in the ass---they hurt. But more importantly, squares offer us a ‘crisis of opportunity’.
I have taken the time to look ahead at all the Treasure Map New Moons between now and 2023 and I have compared Pluto to the Sun/Moon each year. What I found is that there are six Treasure Map-(Aries New moons) that will be squared with Pluto. In 2009 Pluto will Square Sun/Moon with a 3 degree separation. In 2021 at 4 degrees, 2011, 2014 & 2018 at 5 degrees and 2016 at 1 degree. For the rest of the years Pluto and the Sun/Moon are too far apart to be in aspect. So, that means that out of 14 years there are 6 Treasure Maps that will have a Sun/Moon square Pluto and out of those 6 years, this new moon is one of the tightest square. Only 2016 will have a tighter orb.
So, what does that mean? It means that the Pluto square Aries New Moon-Treasure Maps will have a strong punch to them. Pluto’s conflict with Sun and Moon in Aries (along with Venus and Mercury this year) is pushing us to break free. Break new ground. Aries demands straight forward talk, straight forward thinking. Capricorn wants to be the executive in office with prestige, honor and recognition. Both of them want to be respected and both are survivors. Aries knows its survival comes from breaking into new territory and being a leader. Capricorn finds survival through its infrastructure, its bones, its can create security through conserving. We should expect this Treasure Map to bring out our own needs--- we will want to reach and stretch but at the same time we will also want security. That’s the rub. However, it is vital to remember that Pluto aspects always say one thing: “Change or be Changed.”
There is much more to the article...follow the link above for the rest of this dramatic cycle we are launching.

And we have discussed that the time between now and then is the time for de-cluttering!
But before we get totally into a frenzy of cleaning and decluttering I think it is important on Third Quarter Moon to take a moment and contemplate some changes you want to make in your life.
Third Quarter Moon was in Sag (yesterday) and Sag is all about Goals, targets, aiming your arrow high and shooting it. Even though the moon has made the move into Capricorn we are still under the influence of the third quarter meaning Sag colors this influence. I suspect even people who have not been thinking about long range goals have had it come up already in the last 24 hours. Expect this influence to be felt until the 22nd when the moon moves into Balsamic phase.
As a reminder about Third Quarter---from my article on Pisces Lunar Phase you will find this:

Anyway, when I lose my center like I do when I am on a big project the quickest way for me to find myself is to go turn to astrology. Luckily, in the last week I received my new issue (April/May) of Mountain Astrologer. I dug in.
The cover story on Barack Obama's chart is a very good read. A lot of decent discussion about Neptune in the 10th, which we all have heard over and over again during primaries... ("I don't trust him.." blah, blah. Whatever.
But what I found interesting is the angle that the author, Frank Clifford took that the president's natal chart lines up with the climate of the country. And in this case Neptune in the 10th reflects America's disillusionment.
"...we can recognize a disheartened country that has lost faith in its leadership (Sun in Leo square Neptune."
And he goes on to talk about the country's resources and how they tie to Obama's Neptune in Scorpio in the 9th------ overseas trouble, anyone? (I wrote back in November that I put my money on Pakistan troubles cough, cough.)....
Anyway, I highly, highly recommend you run out and get it. It is one of the better analysis of his chart I have read.

Virgo is all about order, dotting i's.. crossing t's. It likes things that it can see, feel, hear, taste..you get the drill.. it likes to experience it so it knows it is real. Pisces on the other hand likes it both ways... likes to see things, knows things are real but then it likes to evaporate them just like a magician... "The rabbit is there.. and now it's not." Pisces brings the unreal quality to even the most harden concrete Virgoan practicality. In short... "man makes plans and Pisces makes unplans." And with this full moon we have got Kookie, Uranus throwing in some chaos for no other reason that he can.
So, you think you have everything planned. It all makes sense. And then at the last minute someone with a drug problem or someone with an illusion problem comes and messes with those plans.. and yes, you CAN be both of those people. And then from out of nowhere someone else walks into the situation and makes it even crazier.
I would say that with Uranus on the Sun opposite the moon, the moon is busy emoting. And the Sun is trying to help the moon.. "what do you need? Tell me, I'll help". And just then someone walks up and says, "Sorry no helping right now you gotta do this..." And you are now on this weird wonky turn of events going to all kinds of places and guess what? At the end of it... you might not even need that thing you thought you needed. It is all not necessary. Isn't that perfectly Uranus. Hang in there, the energy is weird but try as you can to find the humor.

The March 10 Full Moon is almost a mirror image of the 9/15/08 Full Moon that timed the full-blown financial crisis. That Pisces Full Moon conjoined the big Saturn-Uranus opposition, and squared Pluto. This Full Moon in Virgo, also aligns with the signature Saturn-180-Uranus, and features the Moon's Nodes on the meridian in D.C.- which suggests a an eclipse-like effect. Moreover, on closer inspection, we see the Moon-Sun axis directly on the most important mundane midpoint- the AS/MC (Ascendant/Midheaven), which signifies 'at this time and place'. Therefore, the Full Moon is a flash-point for major events in the US. And if our speculative chart for the financial crisis is indeed radical, this Full Moon may trigger/mirror a literal reaction in the economy.
Anyway, go check him out for more data and the chart. I hope to be able to put up my own full moon but like I said I'm so swamped these days I might not get to it....
In addition to our antenna being up high and our hearts needing to vibe our
way through this cycle we have one other little trick in the month. Venus
is turning retrograde on March 6. This is not extraordinary since it
retrogrades about every year and half but it is interesting that it is taking
place in the sign Aries. Aries is the sign that knows what it wants, knows
where it needs to go, and doesn’t shirk from any hard work or challenges to get
what it wants. Simply said, Venus is the planet of love and
desire. And here Venus is going backwards in the sign of Self
interests. Is it possible that we might think we know what we want
but we need to go backwards a bit and re look at our past for a moment or
two? Venus will go direct in mid April so it is not like we have to
have our head in the sand forever. But perhaps we are being asked to slow it all
down for a moment to see what we really want. Or more specifically, Venus
is the planet of Values. Perhaps what we really need to value will not get
our attention until this retrograde is complete. It is also highly worth
noting that Venus is the planet of money and resources. I believe
retrograde Venus could do havoc on the USA stock market and or Department of
Treasury. God knows the Federal Reserve may shows cracks.
however it plays out, Venus is asking us to please slow down a minute and find
out what we love.
And so it is that on this day when Venus turned her ass around and began to
go backwards that we end this week with the lowest stock levels in 12 years.. no shit,

Last night I experienced the power of the 12th house in a most unusual manner. I watched the final episode of The Bachelor. For those of you who do not live in North America--you can learn more about this show HERE. For the rest of us, my apologies for even bringing it up here on an Astrology blog but actually there is a salient astro lesson to be found--and it lies in the 12th house.
