The Moon is New in Aries on April 15, 2018, at 9:57 PM EDT.
On Sunday, April 15th, a New Moon occurs in the sign of Aries. The New Moon in Aries is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with gusto and confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project, and discover our own personal courage.
This is a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid yet realistic plans and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and thus a New Moon in Aries is especially ripe with opportunity for new beginnings. We might consider acting on a constructive impulse and following a hunch or taking a risk. Aries learns through experience and action, so we might treat ourselves to a little adventure now. It’s also a good cycle under which to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are, without putting on airs. We might also find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so – it will go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out.
It’s a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine and that involve doing something new and fresh. However, the New Moon aligns with Uranus and forms a square with Pluto and we should watch for impatient or impulsive moves. Its trine to Saturn suggests rewards for taking things slowly and cautiously, and for following the rules. Mercury stations direct on the same day, pointing to some communication mishaps. The chances of being misunderstood and of misunderstanding run high.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 26 degrees and 2 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 22 to 30 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
