🔻New Moon in Aries. April 7, 2016🔻
The first new moon of the astrological new year kicks off in 18° Aries. With a solid six planets in fire signs, things are bound to get moving. The sun, moon, Venus and Uranus all meet in the zodiac sign of Aries.
Uranus joins the sun and promises to shake things up a bit. Unexpected developments are on the horizon, and new moons bring new intentions. This is the time to proactively plan. Aries represents the self, or "ME" energy. After two long years of Aries + Libra eclipses we are now in better standings with ourselves. This new moon lends energy to setting your sights high on personal goals.
Venus in Aries reflects on loving oneself. Practicing boundaries within partnerships. We all know in order to have healthy relationships, have to be in alignment with ourselves.
Venus is also the ruler of commerce and luxury goods. The impending Mercury retrograde in Taurus on April 28th suggests a need to look over finances at this time, and be realistic about how we are spending.
Sun will trine Saturn, giving us some sort of recognition. You'll be seeing signs of your hard work paying off. Use this as the fuel to empower your intentions. Keep pushing. Saturn will now be going retograde through Sagittarius, allowing you apply and review what he's been teaching you.
The sun will also be squaring Pluto, bringing up issues related to control at this time. Remember that the only way to push forward is to change, and change for the better. Let go of power struggles, practice non attachment.
Where do you personally want to be in 6 months? The full moon in Aries at that time will reveal the intentions you set for yourself today. How can you be better structured to succeed in your hearts desire? How can you honor yourself and keep the delicate balance in relationships?
Choose wisely. Be specific. And get ready.
In honor of this new moon, work with the element of fire. Burn your intentions. Set your candles on an altar. Give thanks for the endings. They make way for new beginnings.
