THE SUPER POWER OF ARIES
Lucille Frances Ryan aka Lucy Lawless was born in Auckland, New Zealand on March 29, 1968, with the Sun, Ascendant and Moon in the sign of Aries, God of War. Lucy’s Sun and Moon are part of a stellium of conjunctions in Aries that includes Saturn and North Node in the first house of Self.
This combination of Solar Fire endows Lucy with a triple arsenal of super power that includes beauty, artistic style, physical strength, leadership, originality, courage, and the strategic fuel to take action, which makes her well armored for the role of the archetypal heroine, Xena: Warrior Princess. Lucy Lawless, as Xena exuded the super power of Aries. Perhaps this is why the God of War yearned for Xena to become his Goddess.
Xena performed with lightening speed, using the powerful attributes of her mentor to wield a sword and chakram to battle with wizards, warlords, demons and mythic gods.
Lastly, I would vote for Lucy to portray Wonder Woman!
Aries is associated with Emperor in the tarot.
A tenacious advocate with conviction!

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac, and ruled by the planet Neptune.
The New Moon on Monday, March 11th will fall in the spiritual, mystic, creative, and sensitive sign of Pisces, at 21 degrees, 3:51 pm, EDT and 12:51 pm, PDT.
This new moon will set us adrift in a dreamlike state upon the misty waters of Neptune, floating toward dream castles, fairy dust, and water lilies.
Let your imagination flow, and dive into parallel worlds of underwater fantasy, mystery, and the magic of illusion!
Meditate, daydream, storytelling, journal, sing, listen to soothing music, compose love letters, read or write poetry, watch fantasy films, perform magic tricks, cat nap, get a foot massage (Pisces rules the feet), take a dip in the ocean, swim with dolphins, enjoy your favorite beverage while floating in a luxurious hot bath of fragrant sea salts.
The Pisces New Moon falls on my MC in Pisces, at 24 degrees and 14 minutes. This New Moon will enable me to gain public recognition for my efforts and achievements. Perhaps a new career, position, promotion, or to use current skills to transform my creativity.
Where does the Pisces New Moon fall in your chart, and what does it mean for you?
The Moon card is affiliated with Pisces in the tarot.
Allow the magic and mystery of Pisces to generate seeds of gratitude, appreciation and faith. Pay attention to your daily fantasies and nightly dreams. Honor Neptune, ruler of the sea, music, dance, performing arts, films, writing, poetry, painting, and dreams.

Homer and His Guide, by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825–1905), portraying Homer on Mount Ida, beset by dogs and guided by the goat herder Glaucus (as told in Pseudo-Herodotus)
Homer is the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and revered in the Greek world as the greatest ancient epic poet.
The Abduction of Helen, with Aphrodie directing by Francesco Primaticcio (1530–39)
The Burning of Troy by Johann Georg Trautmann (1759/62)
Here is a trailer of one of my favorite Helen of Troy films starring Jacques Sernas as Paris, and Rosanna Podeste as Helen.
The full movie of The Odyssey starring Armand Assante as Odysseus, and the soundtrack is absolutely beautiful.

In classical myth, Altis was the sacred sanctuary of Olympia, and monumental site for Greek heroes, and the ancient games. The first Olympic Games were held every four years in honor of Zeus, and date back to 776 B.C.
THE FIRST OLYMPICS
Various myths have been written about the foundation of the ancient Olympics. One myth states that Hercules founded the first games, but the myth of King Pelops’ victory against Oenomaus in a chariot race is an alternative.
NIKE: The Divine Charioteer
NIKE, the Winged Goddess of Victory, Speed, and Strength is personified in a bronze chariot, guided by four horses. She holds a staff graced by a magnificent bird, or a flaming torch.
The ancient games showcased many events, but Chariot racing was held at the hippodrome, a Greek stadium for chariot racing, and was a major event in honor of the Goddess Nike.
BATTLE OF THE TITANS
When the Titans and Olympians declared war, Nike was among Zeus’ allies, and she assumed the role of divine charioteer. Her participation in the battle signified a symbol of “victory,” which included competitions, military, and athletics.
Let us honor the first Olympians for bravery, perseverance, strength, victory, and speed.
O’ Mighty Nike
We petition your wisdom and favor
to guide our chariots steady, and straightforward
with divine and valiant speed, toward victory,
triumph, trophies and medallions
