Tuesday marks the beginning of the Aries new moon cycle with the new moon on April 17th. This is a good time to make commitments to personal goals, thus, the determined energy of the ram. The groundwork has been laid and now marks a time to take action. Go with gut feelings, assertiveness, and enterprising new horizons.
This marks a time of soul searching. Use the Aries fiery energy to make important changes in your life. There is a sense of purpose regarding new beginnings. Willpower is the key and your attitude is one of "cleaning house." Clearing out the old and making room for the new. Set realistic plans and goals as they will set the stage for ultimately reaping the rewards of these new beginnings being laid into place. The rewards will follow within approximately two weeks of this new moon.
Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will be significantly affected by the current planetary placement.
Power Pluto is forming a harmonious trine with this new moon. Taking advantage of the resources at hand and combining them with your passion can reap benficial rewards. Pluto is a planet of regeneration, and as such, can spark new life into dying passions or waning feelings.
The Sun moves into Taurus on April 20th, marking the growing life force of Spring. Taurus is an Earth sign, and as such, places us in a grounded, stable position. One where we can sit back and truly appreciate, representing the persistance and patience of this sign.
On April 23rd and 24th, Venus and Mars cross paths. Strong attractions may be at the forefront, however, getting everyone on the same page may prove difficult. Venus squares Uranus on April 26th, a time when impulsiveness can rupture a relationship. Mars then joins Uranus on April 28th, marking a time when unconventional behavior, explosions, and harsh words may exist.
