On April 10th we have the Aries New Moon. The New Moon of a zodiac sign is its astrological New Year when a new planetary cycle begins. The Aries New Moon will be conjunct the Sun, Mars and Venus at 20º Aries.
The New Moon is in a loose Sextile to the planet Jupiter (planet of good fortune). There may have been a tremendous resolution and letting go preceding this New Moon and now everything in your life is moving forward!
The New Moon is always an excellent time to set your intentions and make plans for taking action. The Aries New Moon is one of the best for starting new ventures, especially in the area of your life where the New Moon is located.
Mercury has recently moved out of its retrograde shadow phase and your thinking is back up to speed. When Mercury ingresses into Aries this month your thoughts will be happier and less confused as it leaves the watery and emotional depths of Pisces.
So new beginnings are now possible and you can break free of your past. This will be the repeated theme of this coming Aries New Moon Cycle. As each of your personal planets ingresses into Taurus they will sextile the planet Neptune (the planet of spiritual ideals which can bring confusion and dissolution of old structures). At this time new opportunities appear that seem be ideal solutions for you.
Then shortly after your personal planet Sextiles Neptune it will oppose Saturn (representing Authority and reality). So you may have to negotiate the differences between your dreams and the harsh circumstances of reality.
Then soon after your personal planet opposes Saturn it Trines Pluto (the planet of regeneration) which helps you give form to something that will have roots and can be long standing.
I will give you the dates for your personal planets making each of these aspects to Neptune, Saturn and Pluto.
The key things to remember during this time is that real opportunities will present themselves to manifest your desires that will probably meet with resistance from an outside authority or reality in some way and you must be willing to PUSH through and make the necessary adjustments required to realize your dreams
Starting with the Aries New Moon if not at the time of the Libra Full Moon on March 27th when the Full Moon opposed the planets Uranus, Mars, Venus and the Sun in Aries and squared Pluto in Capricorn you may have had intimations about the imminent change that’s unfolding for you now that will put you more firmly on your path to fulfillment in this life. What you came here to do and experience.
At the time of the Libra Full Moon there was explosive potential for tremendous release of tension for you on a personal and collective level. Breakthrough opportunities to revolutionize your life were available and your freedom as an individual was highlighted.

On April 12th Pluto (The Transformer) Stations Retrograde at 11º Capricorn and the external pressure eases in this area of your life where Pluto is located. During Pluto Retrograde phase you’ll be reviewing just how far you’ve come in this area of your life and consolidating your forces of renewal. Much that has been hidden can come to light that you will integrate and act upon when Pluto Stations Direct again.
Since Pluto in Capricorn represents big corporations, government and financial institutions this could be a period of retrospection and possible disruption or loss of momentum for making outward change related to big and collective institutions and rather looking internally to make necessary changes. I think reticence and review of the old structures governing your personal and collective life at this time is a very good thing!
For insights into how Pluto in Capricorn may be affecting you in your own personal life I’ve posted a link to a video conversation I had with Astrologer Yasmin Boland on my YouTube Channel HERE.
