NEW MOON in ARIES, April 7, 2016-Unpredictable flavor to new starts
Calling out to the New Moon in Aries. Can the weather get any weirder? My head is spinning with the anomalies of the forecast. One day it is 70 degrees and the next night it is 32 degrees. Did anyone see Spring arrive? Didn’t we just experience the Spring Equinox a few weeks ago? Not sure what is going on here. Is it manufactured or is it Mother Nature having a tantrum? March Madness was capped off the other night. Anyone see it. I was glued to the TV when I should have been doing a lot more other work. And guess what it was the best ending of any Championship game in NCAA history and my team won at the buzzer. Villanova beat North Carolina. How proud to be a Wildcat. It is better than the political agenda that doesn’t go away and will continue to hound us until November. Trump is talking about how this country will be in a recession soon; and Hilary is getting nervous about Bernie. Life in America goes on.
Soon to arrive at our beck and call is the New Moon in Aries (Sun is also in Aries) which comes to us on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at; 7:23am EDT; 4:23am PDT and 11:23am GMT in 18 degrees 04’. This New Moon is conjunct within a degree of Uranus in Aries. Aren’t we all lucky? Well, it isn’t about luck this time it is about the unusual, the shock factor, and the rebellious nature of the energy of this New Moon. What can turn your actions around to better give you an opportunity to take a leap forward? What can show up in your life to create a thought for a new way of doing something? This is about all of you finding a way to blaze that trail once and for all. Don’t be too surprised when Uranus fires up your world with a surprise. Are you going to go with it or is it going to jolt you?
With the Sun and Moon both in Aries which is ruled by Mars it is a time to seek out a fresh start. Some say that this NEW MOON is the real beginning of the year. But before that happens those eclipses are still in effect for many months. It is still about a bit of getting rid of clutter. Have you been doing so? It has been prodding you to give up the old junk that clutters your life. How many of you have let it all go yet? C’mon, the truth please. Are you still hanging in the past? Have you looked within yourself and truly let the past go? Are you ignoring the signs and continue to tweet or play on your phone or Facebook? I know it may be very threatening to you to give that stuff up for a moment so that you can actually see what is happening within. And then the New Moon in Aries can help you take a walk for a change in forward motion. But wait a minute there are many planets going to be going retrograde and then what will you do? (More on that later)
You all know what Aries are like- sort of me first, my way and the commando. Aries may be a bit self-centered but they hide nothing. He tells all no matter what it is. Aries is truly impulsive. And if Aries really messes up no one that I know has the nerve to tell him. Aries Moon doesn’t listen well because he is already waiting to tell what he thinks. Aries teaches us courage and the will to overcome any obstacles. Aries is assertive, honest, feisty, enthusiastic and independent and meets life head-on.
And Uranus hanging right with the New Moon may spring an unexpected occurrence. It tells the Moon to get some imaginative power going and go invent something new. Even if you choose to shock someone it will be uncomfortable for you to deal with it afterwards. Then along with this outrageous behavior old boy Mr. Change artist, Pluto is squaring the New Moon (in conflict) and it is totally drawn into the emotional realm. If you experience love, all I can say is it will be deeper than you imagined. Of course if someone looks to control or dominate, oh well, here comes ice. Watch how you interact if you are in a relationship! Just let it flow and it will definitely show up on the higher level.
New Moon trine Saturn in Sagittarius gives a great balance of intuition and realism. The sensitive moon and severe Saturn do not usually make easy bedfellows, but the trine warms and soften things here nicely. Personal security is the theme. Moon trine Saturn is about trustworthiness and capability. You will look after your money responsibly since this aspect tends to be thrifty. Those touched by this New moon could suddenly find they have a great sense of timing just knowing the opportune moment to do something. Things can feel a bit fated. Previous efforts may bring recognition. Understanding and respect will help you reach your goals.
Mars goes retrograde on April 17. Many things in your life will slow down to a crawl. Refrain from buying mechanical items when it is in backward motion.
Wherever the NEW MOON in ARIES falls in your natal chart will give you a good indication as to what part of your life will be affected. In my chart it is in my 11th house of friends/groups/wishes. It can bring a new paradigm or vision which emerges and take me out in the world even more so. Or it can bring about a big wish that may come about unexpectedly.
Aries-Enormous energy must be expressed. Watch so you don’t change things too quickly. Be aware and don’t go off the deep end with your boss.
Taurus-Is there a self-defeating problem that you need to address once again? You need more time for yourself, do some dream work, being in nature or mind/body/spirit work.
Gemini-Are you going to something that is totally uncharacteristic of your normal behavior? That friend who you forgot about may show up or there may be sudden changes with the friendship.
Cancer- Don’t push against anything. Look at how you express your feelings and your needs. Unstable career area influences. You can make a new start in some way.
Leo-This is time to teach, travel and explore even with the chaotic energy showing up in your life. One of these things can change your life for the better in a flash.
Virgo- Unforeseen romantic and financial opportunities can reveal themselves. Look for innovative solutions for any surprises that show up. Keep an eye on finances. Pleasure!
Libra-Watch for power struggles at home which can cause tension. New people may enter your life. Someone helps you with your self-doubt or helps with a decision.
Scorpio-What do you need to change about your health or work habits? Get those changes in the works. If you are looking for a new job put out intentions to manifest it.
Sagittarius-You will feel the frenzy within as the fiery energy shows up. You feel you want to break free. Some obsessing takes place. This vibe is present with children’s interests and love.
Capricorn-You tend to review your current connections and stir up a transformative effect. Persevere with integrity. What changes do you wish to create in your home?
Aquarius-Is there a change of mood or change of mind to come in some plan? Will what
you want to do provoke objection from others? Meetings and social activities start the ball rolling.
Pisces- What just happened? A sudden windfall can turn your world upside down. Watch impulsive financial urges to throw money around. Relook at your values.
This New Moon is about finding a new personal identity to take you forward in unusual ways. The changes you have been working on are finally coming into the forefront. Be your unique self and create leaps in new ways.
