OUR astrological expert Hernestus describes tonight's Aries New Moon phase period as the "FASCES MOON" a time to stand up for yourself and confront your fears head on and go for it. The danger being, of course, that you may regret not being cautious.
Priest Hernestus reminds us that the ancient Roman 'fasces' were a bundle of wooden sticks with an axe blade emerging from the centre, they symbolized the power of Rome. In 1930s Italy the far right-wing dictator Mussolini modeled himself on the worst of the ancient Roman emperors.
So he adopted the symbol for his political symbol - hence the term 'Fascism'.
Mussolini, of course, allied his country with the German Nazis and ended up leading his nation into war, leaving it impoverished and in ruins. He himself ended up killed, hung upside down, with his mistress beside him.
A cautionary tale far all considering charging ahead with hot-headed ideas!
My crystal suggestions for meditations during this moon phase are:
Moss Agate - These are beautiful stones which can promote self-expression, relieve fear and strengthen your more positive personality traits.
Red Chalcedony - These can help you to to be persistent and confident while acknowledging when to give in gracefully (Mussolini definitely needed one!).
Chrysocolla - These lovely stones (top of entry) can bring confidence and enhanced personal power while maintaining a cool head.
Life and Light,
