Sunday, APRIL 11
The Moon spends the day in the sign of Aries, and the New Moon occurs tonight. 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 might discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity without putting on airs. We might find ways to learn how to more comfortably and happily rely on ourselves.
This lunation is aligned with Venus but square Pluto. Our personal plans and ambitions can feel at odds, causing some tension, but there’s also a strong desire to start fresh and clean the slate. There can be obstacles to clear as we wrestle with our fears and ambitions.
However, Mars, the ruler of Aries, is applying to a trine to Jupiter, and both bodies harmonize with the New Moon, encouraging opportunity, courage, resourcefulness, and confidence. Mars is also applying to a sextile to Venus, and Venus aligns with the New Moon, suggesting that cooperation and diplomacy can help us move forward.
Today’s Venus-Pluto square can serve to accentuate or stimulate our insecurities, bringing suspicions and jealousies to the surface. Jealous and possessive feelings are in direct proportion to fear of losing something or someone. Our fears of betrayal or being in the dark about a matter are working close to the surface. It can be too easy to trigger sensitive points, but what works us up can be very revealing to those of us on a journey of self-discovery. Social interactions may be intense or could provoke intense feelings.
