2017 Aries New Moon begins Dragon Month

Posted by on Mar 24, 2017 in Astrology, Chinese Astrology, New Moon | 0 comments



March 27 2017 is a new Moon in Aries the ram. Fire sign Aries is courageous, a brave leader, and an independent spirit. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in Aries. So take action and move forward as this new Moon waxes to full on April 10 because on April 9, Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks until May 3. During Mercury retrograde it’s good to redo, restructure, and reorganize. 

Fortunately, Mars sextiles Neptune and trines Pluto bringing activities that can benefit the common good, with focus on higher principles. Creative ambition is stimulated, and there’s an awareness of long-range objectives. People have a high energy level and drive for success, especially professional success, with renewed strength and confidence.

There is a stressful cardinal T-square between Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto making it easy to spread your energy too thinly, become overwhelmed, or behave recklessly. Should this occur, the Mercury retrograde cycle is ideal to regroup. 



This new Moon starts the month of the powerful Dragon. Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood this is the month of the Wood Dragon. The element Wood represents spring, the time of growth and movement like plants growing in springtime. Dragon’s earthly branch is Wood, giving Wood Dragon a double dose of Wood’s enthusiasm, drive, creativity, and idealism.

Luck is strongest during this lunar month for the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, Rat, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation in this Dragon month. 

Happy new Moon,
