The New Moon in Aries fires up our enthusiasm! What are you full speed ahead moving into? Aries is the warrior aspect of our self-image. He represents drive and desire, passion and vitality. The warrior can be restless and rebellious and signals the shift from one season to the next. Here in the northern hemisphere it is time to dig in the garden and start new projects. In the southern hemisphere it is time to slow down and begin to turn inward.
This New Moon jump-starts a vigorous trend for the better part of the year. Much new potential is concealed and well hidden from view. Radical Uranus closely conjoins the today’s new moon cycle inspiring recent seeds of change to awaken and start to take root. Former belief systems are being disproved. Long withheld brazen opinions fly off tongues and steps are taken in the much-needed direction of global consciousness.
April 5, Venus floats into Pisces. When the Goddess of Love visits the two fishes she is in her sign of exaltation. This is as great for romance and intimate relationships as it is for finding a closer connection with the Divine Spirit. The only warning I have for you is take care to not be too self-sacrificing especially on April 11 when Neptune unites with Venus for a soiree. If art, beauty and diving into the spiritual side of things are what you have been craving—you are in for a treat.
Mercury rules the way we think and speak our minds. When he roars into the sign of the ram April 7, we are inspired to become overly chatty. Tensions can mount causing outbursts without concern for the feelings of others. Be sure to have a little extra time to think things through before you barrel down anyone’s throat!
When an outer planet turns retrograde it may not be immediately apparent on the surface but I assure you that it is felt deep within your being. April 14 when Pluto switches his course and begins to inch back through Capricorn until September 22, we feel the insistent influence of the dark lord uncover the things we have been hiding. I encourage you to tell the truth and allow this to be a first step in a much needed, deep healing process.
We experience our first eclipse cycle of the year April 15 with a Total Lunar Eclipse during the Full Moon in the sign of Libra. Just dues are dealt and paid forward. The ancient view of eclipse patterns associated them with hardship and loss. A lunar eclipse represents an overthrow of the ego mind by the psyche. This eclipse causes a revolution within your intimate relationships, inspiring evaluation and regrouping. There is no room for compromise in spite of Libra’s love of balance. Indeed it a good idea to play fair. Stillness allows unexplored territories to open up. Honesty help impart equilibrium.
The Sun moves into Taurus April 19. The sign of the bull represents an enlivening of the physical senses and provides and invitation to enjoy the finer things that life has to offer. Find grounding in your daily habits to enjoy this to the fullest potential.
The weekend of April 20 to 21 surely holds surprises. Jupiter the giant in Cancer squares outrageous Uranus in Aries while opposing mysterious Pluto in Capricorn. At the same time Uranus is square to Pluto. This is a continuation of a series of Uranus-Pluto squares. To know more on this, please refer back to previous Moon Wisdom editions. April 22, Mars in Libra joins in and the four, form a Grand Cardinal square. This is certain to ignite social upheaval and a variety of disturbances. Take extra precaution with your personal security. I suggest beginning now and have your new system in place by this time. The upside is a guaranteed modification of current standards for the better.
Mercury enters Taurus April 23 helping new ideas with positive solutions to be set in place at a global level. On the contrary, your personal relationships may stagnate a bit in the area of communication. Take extra time to see things through and expect less from others in response time. Exercise fewer reactions and remove your need to verbally feedback. Instead just listen.
The Aries New Moon is a time of renewal and beginning again. We circle around the board and pass “Go” once more. Keep your volatile side in check with concern for others. With self, go full force into a transformation.
I am sure you will enjoy the story and learn a great deal about yourself reading it!
Read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Just when you think everything is set in stone you find yourself in the quakes of big changes. Stay focused and in a semblance of reality regarding your future aspirations. Skillfully ride the waves of change sweeping through your love-life and financial sectors. The secrets you thought you had tucked away neatly have been strewn in front of the public eye. Honestly owning up to your previous behavior demands that you remove the rose-colored lenses you had been allowing to fool your perception of reality. Engage all of your protective resources to protect your progeny. Extra time is best spent in quiet solitude rather than in avoidance of your feelings. Stop fooling yourself that you are helping others. Now is the time to help yourself.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
New found successes in your career sector help to steady yourself through current health challenges. Change your behavior and your thinking.

Use the 24 hour rule for thinking things over before investing your precious resources. All of your relationships are steadily improving. Take this positive energy and focus on systematically checking things off your to-do list.

Stash away a percentage of the unexpected windfall coming your way and save it for a rainy day.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
All of your ideas are being well received at work. Unfortunately the group closest to you is not ready for this and unable to keep up. Rather than seeing this as a setback, realize you are ahead of schedule. Use the extra time and space to be available for your siblings. Make necessary repairs and renewals on communications equipment and your vehicle. This is not the time to be thrifty. When the smoke clears, take a much-needed mini-break vacation. This rejuvenates your spirit and helps to restore your depleted reserves.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
Watch for cracks in the protective sheath of your precious resources. Though the changes are affecting you slowly over time it is best to handle them immediately.

Your intuition and awareness are sharp, allowing you to roll with inevitable change. This is not the time to sink new roots. In order to create more space and time for creative inspirations, find ways to successfully sidestep confusing conversations.

It is fine to wait until the last minute to take the plunge.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
Things are finally slowing down a bit creating much-needed breathing space. You have been running at such a high velocity that this little respite opens a floodgate of inspiration and creativity. Those of you in committed relationships find new lines of communication and a long desired meeting of the minds. Invest time in revamping your work routine. Designate time in your day for enjoyment and treat yourself to much needed “me time.” Keep your boundaries stealth to honor this decision. Communications slow down for the coming months giving you the space you deserve to enjoy life.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22

Any extra investment you can make for your health right now returns greatly and helps you to negotiate bumps just ahead on the road caused by employers and parents. Though authority can push your buttons, you must find a way to give thanks for every precious moment with them. Each time you are given a second chance, be extremely grateful. The one you care about most needs your support right now to help them through a crisis. Selfless service is an extremely high form of honor. Extend this to a broader group and watch as the positive vibrations affect your investments at all levels. Relax and allow the magic to happen. The culmination is just around the corner.
Face your family issues with strength and integrity. Spiritual beliefs are tested and up for modification. Your transformative powers reach beyond the scope of your current situation. Take the risk to spread them further. Store up reserves for those closest to you and graciously offer to help anyone in need. Handle all challenges with grace. You surprisingly have a great deal of extra energy. When given personal time, comb through your daily routine and make clever changes to your diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation habits. Become more efficient with time management. View all of these changes as a part of your awakening rather than a cause for overwhelm. The sooner you begin the better.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
Prepare to lose your mind! Take this as a positive action. The best way to proceed is this: Identify drama when it happens and then choose to be non-reactive. Take extra care to mindfully watch unnecessary spending and create boundaries for the rest of this year. The cohesive plan you put into action now helps you track and inventory everything.
