“The ‘Almost’ New Moon”

Balsamic moon, horoscopes, weekly horoscopes, Chinese New Year, Rooster, Cock, Fire Rooster, 2017, New Year, Happy New Year, Mars, Aries

We don’t get to have that effervescent new Aquarius moon until Friday. That means about five days of contending with what’s called a Balsamic Moon. Balsamic moons have nothing to do with balsamic vinegar. But they do have something to do with “balm,” like you put on your chapped lips. The balsamic moon is a chance at shedding dryness and moistening up for renewal at the new moon.

That sounds nice until the toughness of that shedding hits. There’s an anxiety you can feel during this phase of the moon. Perhaps you have visions of how your life can look better, how it will change. Or need to change. But you can’t connect all the dots. Everything feels a bit murky. Become okay with that.

Your task during a balsamic moon is to drop the belief that you can even connect all the dots now. You likely can’t. Or if you could, you’d probably connect them in a way that’s based on stale info. There’s a faith-building and surrender that comes at a balsamic moon that’s necessary and sometimes just hard to do. Content yourself with the visions and clearing away what could block your intentions and blessings.

Say, you’re having trouble making it to the gym regularly to fulfill your New Year’s resolution to lose weight. This is the perfect time to evaluate if the times you selected to go are working for you. Balsamic moons are notorious for feeding hard-headedness. We’re sure what works best for us. Even when something clearly isn’t working. Check in on your own hard-headedness. Yes, ask yourself, “What am I holding on to that’s not helping me?”

You’ll have room to breathe in new possibilities and inspirations once you’ve cleared that space. Then you can better appreciate Mars moving back into Aries, his home sign, on Friday. He’ll arrive like a brawny guy with a U-Haul van, ready to help you move and fill that space. That’s perfect for Chinese New Year.

Happy Year of the Fire Rooster!

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

You’re lucky to start your birthday season at the brink of a new moon. The world might seem to shimmy and shimmer with possibilities. If only you didn’t have to deal with pettiness and bullshit, even your own. There’s speeding up a process, and then there’s skipping it. Don’t scuttle the process. That will end up doubling your efforts. Wade through the nonsense and rigmarole. Focus and patience will accelerate things. Complaining or avoiding necessities will not. So, yeah, one more episode of your favorite streaming show will mess things up, if your work’s not done.

Affirmation:
I patiently wade through the shit I must to shimmy and shine.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Some of your clearest and energetic moments will likely be when you’re not around others. This might be confusing. It’s not that others drain you. It’s that you can be more attuned to what fuels and inspires you alone. This energy-buildup does have a purpose. You’re gearing up to do more with and for others. But that doesn’t mean self-sacrifice. But it’s also not selfish. You’re able to do more for yourself, including shore up your finances, by acting on some of your more inspiring ideas. You have to feel and be in touch with those ideas first, though. You have to feel the rain within before you manifest the rain around you. But you are a rainmaker!

Affirmation:
I must hear the rain within before I make it rain for anyone else, including myself.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Your recent pursuits for more self-mastery and development will likely pull you into the orbit of others. Take your time before you make any solid commitments or alliances. Listen and observe more before sharing what you know or outlining all you want. You’re not holding back from a place of insecurity, though. It’s because you HATE to waste your time! You want to make sure people are who you they say they are. Actions are always going to speak louder than words for you. With make-it-happen Mars, your planet, coming back to your sign on Friday, you’re poised for action! Set yourself up for that by seeing who’s on the same page.

Affirmation:
I see who is really about business before I share any of my own.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Take it all in. Eat slower. Walk even a little slower. Leave for appointments, dates, or work earlier to give you more time. Perhaps there is more pleasure in having the time. But that’s not why I’m encouraging you to do all of this. Allow more to seep in slowly because it builds a dynamic tension. The more you take in slowly, the more you’ll be able to release quicker and with more power. That’s how fitness gurus have discovered muscles to work. Fast, furious and constant isn’t what always builds power. Slow consistency like molasses often does. You’re bracing for a time to burst open. Be on the groove for that. You’ll make it worth it.

Affirmation:
I build energy slowly to release it explosively at the right time.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

There is a fine line between expressing conviction and plain old crankiness. You’ll have to find that line because some people won’t be able to tell the difference with you. The clearest way to do that would be to commit to give each person his or her due. But not too much of it. If someone violates a boundary of yours, you can let him or her know. Or if someone’s politics doesn’t jive with yours, you can voice your opinion. Yet, you don’t have to keep talking about it. Or lash out at someone else for another’s offense. Stay fresh as you greet someone new, open to sharing genuinely who you are. That will likely help with the crankiness.

Affirmation:
I stay cool and true to my convictions.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

There is a danger with “faking it ‘til you make it.” It’s hypocrisy. It’s one thing to fake liking your job until you can get to a better position. But that practice can also hide a greater dissatisfaction and fear. Fear often feeds anger, like a too merciful granny sneaking candy to her unhealthy grandchild. You might not even know where the anger comes from. Examine your heart and shed where you’ve taken on too much pretense. That doesn’t mean you should wallow in negativity, if that’s what you feel. Once you admit your honest feelings, even to yourself, you can re-negotiate options. But the only possibilities that crop up when you’re faking are lies. Hone in on what’s true.

Affirmation:
I release what’s fake about my feelings to embrace greater prospects of truth for my life.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Sometimes the hardest feedback to hear is when you’ve given your best and it’s still not seen as good enough. That’s probably when you should thank the heavens the most, though. You’re spared a greater hurt. Perhaps nothing hurts more than reaching for the sky with someone or something and discovering that it has a low ceiling. When you have room to show more of your best, then there’s higher to go! Your best can be better. Accept that. Then rise and roar to challenge!

Affirmation:
I embrace calls for improvement as heralds for greatness.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You pride yourself on doing your work well. But sometimes the problem isn’t your work or effort. It’s in the work conditions themselves. Use your detail-oriented mind to clarify what someone wants before you roll up your sleeves. Be as careful about your work settings before leaping into the work itself. If you insist on having what’s essential that doesn’t make you a prima donna. Your work is a manifestation of who you are. Mandate that all of who you are be treated with care, integrity, and respect.

Affirmation:
I command respect for my process and what I produce.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Perhaps for every single moment of effortless grace, there are hundreds of hours of hard work & failure. It’s easy to forget that when you focus more on your failures or shortcomings than when you finally get something right. That’s even easier to do during a balsamic moon like this week. You have to keep your nose to the grindstone. But you don’t have to let that beat you down into the ground. We grind to be sharper. You’re becoming that every day, even when you feel dull to your core. The relief of the new moon is coming on Friday. Keep the faith.

Affirmation:
I am sharpened by the grind, not dulled.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

By Sun sign, you were likely conceived while the Sun was in Aquarius, like now, unless you were born way later or sooner than expected. That provides some insight into what this new moon can hold for you. You were forged when the Earth’s winter frost was preparing for the return of the Sun’s warmth, light, and renewal. Your perpetual promise to renew yourself begins now, here. How are you prepared to shed outgrown and worn-out thoughts and things? Are you distracting yourself with BS to avoid the fear you might have about change? Do you doubt you have enough in you for another regeneration? These questions might be overwhelming. But feeling them stir in your soul will summon the light within. Trust me. You were made in just such a moment as this.

Affirmation:
I prepare for my renewal with faith that my light banishes darkness.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Choose what fills your calendar carefully. You probably won’t be able to back out of a commitment easily if your feelings about it change. The best way to know in advance is to choose what you’d be willing to do if you had to leave the warmest bed ever for the cold. The actual temperature outside doesn’t matter. Your real measure is your willingness to endure discomfort to keep your word. If you wouldn’t venture out in tough conditions to do something, then don’t make any solid promises about doing it. Your word is your real anchor. Pick your port well.

Affirmation:
I choose well where my words will anchor my butt to go.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Some aspects of this week might seem downright surreal for you. As if you’re shifting between worlds by a sci-fi transporter, one particle at a time. You sense numerous possibilities for how everything comes together. But you can’t be certain about how anything will gel. Be friends with that ambiguity. You’ll be thrown off the moment you focus too hard on certainty. That’s not the world being cruel. It’s you being stubborn. You’re still integrating fresher layers of yourself from your birthday season. That takes patience. Embrace your budding re-invention with gentleness.

Affirmation:
I am gentle with my budding, re-invented self.
