Friday, APRIL 1
The Moon spends the day in the sign of Aries, and the New Moon occurs early today, at 1:25 AM EDT. The New Moon in Aries is a fresh time of new beginnings and initiative. It can prompt us to try something new and innovative, go at it with enthusiasm and confidence, take charge of our lives, and discover our courage. It’s a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship with ourselves.
Because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, this New Moon is especially ripe with opportunities for a fresh start. We might consider acting on a constructive impulse and following a hunch since Aries learns through experience and action. We’re discovering the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity–without putting on airs. Finding ways to more comfortably and happily rely on ourselves can be in positive focus.
This lunation aligns with Mercury and Chiron, increasing our awareness of the need for more sensitivity to our communications. A courageous mindset and few obstacles are likely. However, Mars, the ruler of Aries, is applying to a conjunction with Saturn, and while we’re ready to work hard and pace ourselves, we can be combatting some fear of not being number one. Fortunately, we seem to have all the tools to work through these issues.
The Sun aligns with Chiron today, and it will meet Mercury tomorrow. We may feel drawn to problem areas so that we can repair them. It’s a strong time to see each other’s potential, although the process might feel challenging. We may have the opportunity to find a sense of purpose, increasing our confidence.
Still, we might face life lessons that get us in touch with the insecurities that undercut our confidence. In fact, growing and succeeding can involve facing our fears. The desire to learn through experiences and others is active now, and problem-solving is favored. It can be a time of building faith or confidence in our skills and talents. Openness and self-honesty are vital now, and the focus may be on asserting ourselves and acknowledging our own needs in healthy doses so that we can bring our “whole selves” to our activities.
Today’s Mercury-Venus semi-square can suggest minor misunderstandings or indecision. It’s not easy to concentrate or connect with our hearts. There can be minor but irritating disconnects as we either rationalize our feelings or emotionalize our observations.
