New Moon in Aries, Pre-Retrograde – April ’16
We are approaching the New Moon in Aries on April 7th, with the Ruler of Aries (Mars, the warrior, maverick, pioneer) preparing to turn Retrograde on April 17th until July 29th.
Now is the time to take action toward any new projects you want to begin because once Mars goes Rx (Retrograde), it’s going to be sloooowww going.
Mars is the planet that determines how you get what you want – how you move through life and how you take action. The sign your Mars is in, the house, and the aspects it makes tells your Mars story.
During the Retrograde, life will not move at the same pace, schedules will be disrupted, and sometimes it may feel like pushing a rock up a hill. You will have many opportunities to practice patience and hold your intention, while you continue to take actions aligned with your goals :))
The weekend offers harmonious, flowing energies and is a good time to get things done or to see plans fulfilled. Enjoy – and take advantage of this supportive vibe!
On Tues, April 5th, Venus moves into fiery Aries (impulsive re: desires) and Mercury moves into practical Taurus (slow, deliberate). Interesting juxtaposition, huh? Jump! – wait… And the Moon is Void of Course all day and night, so avoid making dates/plans if you want them to unfold as planned.
The Sun squares Pluto on Wed, setting up experiences that show you how/where you’re giving your power away. If you attract dominant types, manipulators or bullies, see if the world is mirroring back some aspect of you – or if it’s a call to stand in your power. As always, seek connection rather than trying to “win.” In a power struggle, there is no winner.
On Thurs, April 7th at 7:24am EDT the New Moon arrives in assertive Aries, the courageous, risk-taking, independent spirit who is ready to step up and take action. This is a powerful time to take action toward what you want to create.
•In which part of your life do you need to be courageous and do something?
•What is no longer working that needs to change?
•What do you know you need to do and keep avoiding?
The Universe supports your efforts now, so make use of this tremendous energy and be proactive!
Because of the recent shakeups (Eclipses), this New Moon offers an extraordinary opportunity for change. Whenever there is instability, it opens doors for major changes and awakening.
Know that the Universe is providing tremendous support for your evolution and if anything is taken away it is ultimately for your Highest path and purpose.
You are being challenged to let go of false beliefs and remember the truth of who you are and what you came here to do – and to have the courage to move forward.
Who you think you are will shift as old structures crumble and you have the opportunity to open to a deeper spiritual center within. In order for this to happen you must be willing to surrender, again and again, allowing new parts of your Self to emerge on a daily basis.
This is where REAL courage is called for — but this is what you came here to do and Be!
“Here is a magical secret we all need to know: People change. No one is stuck who chooses not to be. No one is without infinite potential for a radical turnaround from all that is unconscious and fearful and weak to all that is conscious and loving and strong.” ~ Marianne Williamson
