Fixed Star Report: New Moon in Aries

Clash of the Titans

The rain pounded for two days here on the West Coast with Moon-Jupiter-Uranus all in Deluvial Pisces. So far this year we have had extreme elemental clashes with freezing weather reminiscent of the Younger Dryas that happened 11,500 years ago (between 10,800 and 9,500 BCE) to Mega Quakes
in Haiti, Chile and Baja. These "Titanic" events and conditions including massive landslides, crashes and floods have taken on a live of their own.

We hope the Aries Moon trine Mars in mellow-dramatic Leo will help all this
excessive water to evaporate. Hmmm. dry conditions with the earth ready to shift and contract.
Quakes are still rocking around 879 shakers in this tight area 10-degree Map Centered at 30°N,115°W from Baja/Mexicali on up into Seeley, or even the occasional quakes near Channel Islands Beach.

The Balsamic Moon phase allows us a view into the future when time accelerates. We are
rapidly building toward this incendiary choleric Aries Moon in an explosive square to the January 15th Solar Eclipse.
Capricorn's ruler Saturn (structure) is also opposing Uranus (freedom) on April 26th
while Jupiter (King of the Gods) is opposing Saturn (May 22nd) which marks deep economic, political divisions when governments tend to wade in crisis.

Mercury like Saturn and Pluto before him slowing and moving into apparent retrograde motion on April 17th in fixed Taurus to set up another square to Mars on 4-25 circa
the same time that the winged messenger is trine Pluto Rx. Antagonism mixes with a more probing darker mindset.
When we speak of Aries, we touch on the life force and vitality that animates all of us.
The phrase associated with Aries is "I am that I am" right in your face mostly spontaneous
and definitely impulsive. Mars is the ruler of Aries and of course Mars represents the warrior filed with courage expressing will power. Wednesday's Aries lunation will demonstrate in striking fashion how Mars now in Leo is kicking up the drama, dust and battle lines are being drawn. Mars is applying to an opposition to Neptune in collective Aquarius and even though this transit is not exact till June 4th we are seeing deceptive agendas, motivations, and initiatives by the Elite being questioned and challenged.

Generational Battles Between the Gods Are Here

Aries rising @ 2 degrees sets the stage for this historical confrontation where
Mars in proud Leo is the ruler of the chart in the Leo house the fifth relating to marriage, sports or theatre performances. Mars opposes Neptune found with Chiron in the
12th house where hidden machinations hide and LA is no exception to this mechanism of deceit.
Fixed star Scheat in paran with Mars, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse, Pegasus.
Pay attention With Mars: Many accidents, sickness to native and relatives. [Robson*, p.207.]

We obviously can't ignore the Titans especially with their father, Uranus moving into
a Titanic Opposition to Saturn (Cronos)on April 26, 2010 @ 4:27 PM right before the
next Full Moon in Scorpio. Note: The Titanomachy (War of the Titans) fall into a class of similar myths of a War in Heaven throughout Europe and the Near East, where one generation or group of gods largely opposes the dominant one. Did you say War in the Heavens on an Aries New Moon?
Coming again and not just in the movies, the Golden Ram is bringing the Titans.
In the first generation of twelve Titans the males were Oceanus, Hyperion, Coeus, Cronus, Crius and Iapetus and the females were Mnemosyne, Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Rhea and Themis. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion's children Eos, Helios, and Selene; Coeus's daughters Leto and Asteria; Iapetus's sons Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius; and Crius's sons Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses. Their role as Elder Gods was overthrown by a race of younger gods, the Olympians, in the Titanomachy ("Battle with the Titans") which effected a mythological paradigm shift.

Hyperion's Children in revolt will be added by not just the planetary lineup but the
power of the slower moving fixed stars in paran.
Stepping way back we will take a look the lineup and meanings of the Fixed Stars for :
