The New Moon occurs this morning in the sign of Pisces. This New Moon gives us the opportunity to start fresh and is an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Fish. These include taking a leap of faith, accepting imperfections in ourselves and others as a different kind of “perfection,” starting a project that requires imagination and visualization skills, consciously setting time aside for peaceful and rejuvenating activities, and sharing a dream with another. With this strong Pisces energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. While we’re likely to feel very inspired, and this New Moon can motivate us to take a leap of faith, we should watch for impatience and impulsive moves, since this lunation is square to Mars, and Mars is on the verge of changing signs and is thus especially vulnerable/volatile. Words can sting now, although they can also prompt a “turning over a new leaf” moment and fuel a new beginning. The Sun/Moon also form a semi-sextile to Uranus, and we can struggle a little with whether or not to go our own way.
Mars moves into the sign of Capricorn early afternoon (Eastern time) and will transit the sign until May 16th. Mars in Capricorn is deliberate, persistent, and faithful energy. We consider the future and the consequences before taking action during this cycle. We are slow to anger but can be quite cold if we are frustrated. The shadow side of Mars in Capricorn is rigidity or excessive materialism.
The Moon enters Aries at 2:57 PM EDT.
The Moon is void from 9:12 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to the Sun), until the Moon enters Aries at 2:57 PM EDT.
