Sun in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius (both at 16 degrees)

Wednesday, April 6th

Sun in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn (both at 17 degrees) 

Thursday, April 7th

New Moon at 18 degrees of Aries

Saturday, April 9th

Sun conjunct Uranus at 20 degrees of Aries

The skies are on fire this week. Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) inspire, create, awaken enthusiasm, and move freely. Fire signs run on passion, desire, action and the ability to translate their intuition into creative self-expression. Fire signs burn bright and have warmth and light to spare. That is, when they aren’t over-heating and burning down bridges.

Right before the new moon occurs at 18 degrees of Aries, the sun (in Aries) will square Pluto (in Capricorn. Sun square Pluto is a power struggle, one that can be utilized for good when we give up resistance to what isn’t working. Sun square Pluto helps us to relinquish our need to be right, our need to be special, our need to prove our point. Transformation, a major mark of this new moon, is for the humble. Squares from Pluto demand that we lay down our defenses and remind us of our fragile, flawed, human form.

The new moon in Aries is squared by Pluto and conjunct the inventive, erratic, shocking, interesting and creative Uranus. Uranus has spent the last 5 years in Aries, so this is not the first, nor the last, new moon in Aries that is close to it. Uranus helps us to break free of conventions that hold us back. Uranus helps us to break with the traditions that inhibit the expression of our individuality. Uranus helps to wake us up to what is possible, what has yet to be created and what is demanding to be manifested through us. 

This new moon opens up a lunar cycle that will see its ruler, Mars, station retrograde 10 days into it. This gives the fiery, possibly explosive, quality of this new moon an internal orientation. What is awakening within us? What wants to be explored internally? What fires burn inside of us that we need to acknowledge? 

With Mercury’s entrance into the earth sign of Taurus, we are introduced at the same time to an energy that wants to help us ground the enthusiasm of fire, make use of it and build with it. By month’s end, Mercury will station retrograde in Taurus, helping us to review our assets so that we may value and best make use of them.

Horoscopes are meant to be read as inspiration.

If you know your rising sign, please read it. Reading your rising sign gives you a more specific understanding as to how the astrology is landing in your personal chart. That does not mean that the rising sign is how you should identify or that it is more important than your sun sign. If you don’t know your rising sign, read your sun sign. If you know both your rising sign and sun sign, please read both. They both contain important information. You’ll know which resonates more for you from week to week. Take what works for you, leave the rest. If you find inspiration here we love and appreciate donations. If you want to share this work you must quote it and link it to this post and website. Thank you for your support and for spreading the work around, we really appreciate it and you!

It’s an interesting time for you. It’s a telling moment. It’s both the beginning of something and a review of your desire, direction and what you hold meaningful. 

Thursday’s new moon is in your sign. It is an awakening, exciting, and important moment to struggle with. Becoming is no small matter. This new moon is an initiation, one in a long line of initiations that have occurred over the past 5 years. Breaking free, doing your own thing, and finding a way to express your individual nature is nothing new for you. This new moon just wants to encourage the next level of your development. Those with birthdays within a few days of Thursday will feel it the most. It’s a moment of pressure to use. It’s a moment of revelation. It’s a moment that can help to maximize your efforts. It’s a moment that can encourage you to take a chance, take up a challenge or take on your own potential. 

You are competing against yourself here. 

And yet there is a need to pause. It is the beginning of a time of reflection for you. One that might help to change your mind about something. One that might rearrange how you prioritize what is important to you. One that may have you changing your relationship to what you learn or how you learn it. This new moon may help you to release yourself from even the most subtle of restrictions that you have placed on yourself, and that is the most generous of birthday presents you can give yourself.

Taurus copyTaurus & Taurus Rising

Let’s talk about inner revolution. Let’s talk about inner transformations. Let’s talk about liberation from the inside out. Let’s talk about not needing to keep up with anyone else. Let’s talk about forgetting what you thought you “should” accomplish at this age. Let’s talk about accomplishing a trust in your efforts, a trust in your abilities and a trust in your relationship with life. 

Let’s talk about setting an intention to be on your own side for your next birthday year. Let’s talk about slowing down enough to remember to appreciate what is happening in the moment all year long. 

Let’s talk about dismantling your fears one by one and day by day. 

Over time, if you shine the light of consciousness on your fears they lose their power. Every time we laugh at what we fear we win a little battle. Every time we push past the exterior of a fear and get to the heart of it we steal back a piece of our energy from it. 

Spend the new moon working this magic and you’ll set yourself up for a year like no other.

Gemini copyGemini & Gemini Rising

Thursday’s new moon shakes up the part of your chart that connects you to your dreams, your hopes and your visions for the future. It may give you a new insight into this domain of your life. It might help you to refresh your relationship to hope. It might help you to reclaim your sense of autonomy and inspire you to reinvent your dreams for your self. 

Sometimes we need to 2.0 our ideas about what we want, need and are moving toward. 

Thursday’s new moon and this week’s astrology may have you reconsidering what roles you want to take on among friends, in community and with your peers. You may need to shake things up a bit and do less. You may need to redirect your energy and use it for more intimate relationships. You may need to promise your self, your efforts, your support and your allegiance only to what helps you feel alive and fits in your schedule.

Cancer copyCancer & Cancer Rising

The energy in the career center of your chart is off the charts. It’s action packed and persistent in its workload and tasks to take hold of. This is no time to hold back if you have been. This is no time to wall-flower. This is no time to pretend that you don’t want every bit of it. This is a time for action, intuition and a willingness to be defiant in the face of your fear. This may be a time of being overwhelmed by schedules and projects. The kind of time where holding on may be all you can do. 

Letting go can be good medicine too. 

Apply yourself and then free yourself from being overly responsible for the outcome. It’s not all up to you. Some of it is way, way beyond you. Honor the fact that you don’t have to be perfect at what you are learning how to do. Give yourself room. Room to grow. Room to not know. Room to un-know what gets the best of you. Especially if it’s a fear around how to get a certain project going. Especially if you aren’t overwhelmed with work and projects but wish you were. Especially if you are trying to figure out how to use the potential you know you have in your career. Especially if you don’t seem to have much get up and go. Don’t judge it. It’s a great weekend to get something in motion in terms of your career and your calling but, right now, thanks to the upcoming Mars retrograde, that might not be as clear or direct as you’d like it to be. Go easy on yourself and just do what is laid before you to do.

Leo copyLeo & Leo Rising

Thursday’s new moon arrives as an equation. It’s half liberation and half dedication. A quarter raw passion, a quarter discrimination, a quarter destruction, and a whole lot of having to figure it out for yourself.

Freedom comes with having to be able to answer for your decisions. It’s a good deal. Expensive, but worth it. Costly but correct. 

Thursday’s new moon wants you to get out. Out of town. Out on the town. Out on the road. Out of your routine. Thursday’s new moon wants to shake up the way you are seeing the world, or wants you to take that responsibility on. Give your mind something to savor. Give your philosophies a run for their money. Give yourself something new to learn, experience or delve into.

Thursday’s new moon wants you to get high in a grounded way. No hangovers. No cheap shots. No short cuts. This new moon is a top-shelf premium elixir. This new moon is dealing sustainable spiritual substance. This new moon is making clear your need to give yourself the opportunity to renew what you think of as important, improbable and true.

Virgo copyVirgo & Virgo Rising

It’s time to renew your relationship to how you collaborate. It’s time to take a look at the partnerships you are invested in. It’s time to renew your contract with others or start up something new.  Whichever the case, make sure that you have your freedom in mind during negotiations. Whatever the deal, interview your needs before you make any firm commitments. Whatever the scenario, make sure you have enough room to grow and enough grounding to get the thing off the ground. 

If this new moon isn’t inspiring something about who you are working with or sharing yourself or your life with, then it’s most likely time to investigate how your home life, your history, your oldest stories or your oldest fears may be interfering with your present possibilities.

There’s nothing quite as valuable as understanding our most difficult struggle. It is a gift that has unlimited potential if we use it consciously. A gift because once we know, once we recognize and once we begin to reconnect with our pain, then the experience and wisdom gleaned from it is ours to use. It is fuel. Fuel we own. Fuel that won’t run out. Fuel that helps us turn adversity into an opportunity to discover our beauty.

Libra copyLibra & Libra Rising

Let people disappoint you. Let folks be flawed. Let your hope for their perfection fall by the wayside. Make a point of busting yourself on your own assumptions about what others want and need. From you, from life. Make room for something greater, more complex, more meaningful. Make room for relationships that run on high octane freedom fuel and an honesty that won’t let you get away with even the smallest lie. 

Thursday’s new moon graces you with its annual initiation of your 7th house of relationships.  It might be time to refresh your contract with others. It might be time to review your agreements with business partners, intimate partners and the clients that you serve. It might be time to shake it up, shake some ill-fitting agreement lose or shake a tail-feather with your favorite so-and-so. 

It’s definitely time to look at what you are communicating and how best to deliver your message. It’s time to learn about or implement some boundaries in your interactions. It’s time to learn about a new way to be intimate. For some of you this will be subtle, for others it will be a complete overhaul of how you have been addressing those that you are closest to.

Scorpio copyScorpio & Scorpio Rising

In many ways you are being prepped for a period of transformation. There may be a reconfiguration of what drives you. A reorientation. A reevaluation of what you want to move towards. A process of repositioning yourself so that you feel more aligned with your self and your swagger. 

There may be a different relationship to your financial life, to the way you make money, to the way you honor the energy that you put into the work that you do that supports you.

There is a hope here, something helpful that you might be starting to conceive, some brilliant idea that is struggling to be hatched, a work situation that can be done that is just dawning on you.

You’ve got the right idea. 

You just need to stick with it. Stick through the trial and error period of beginning something new.    Try betting on you. Bet on your ability to make consistent efforts towards your goal. Bet on your ability to take what you have been given and form it into something useful. Bet on your ability to break any spell that has been cast over your consciousness that tells you that you can’t do it, that you shouldn’t do it or that you will never do it. Thursday’s new moon wants you to risk believing in your ability to make your work work for you. And the money too.

Sagittarius-2 copySagittarius & Sagittarius Rising 

Creative license. Take it. You have it. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Folks can get strange when they feel threatened. Folks can get petty when they are reminded of the potential that they aren’t using. 

Creative freedom. It’s yours. Don’t let anyone else’s fear of theirs dissuade you. Folks get freaky when fear overwhelms their ability to remember who they really are. Your creativity is meant to inspire others, not take anything from them. This is a generous gift you’ve got. Share it.

Thanks to Thursday’s new moon, creative genius is raining down on you. Get your moon barrels out and gather the goodness. You’ve got a pocket, a moment, a twist of fate forming. One that can help you to see a creative solution to a longstanding problem or an age-old conundrum. A twist of time that helps you to honor the creative energy that moves through you. An opportunity to recognize how to be in relationship with your creativity.  How to be the best partner you can be to the creative genius that moves through you. How to be in a process of becoming with your own creative spirit. 

It could come across as rebellious in nature. It could appear that you are bucking the system. It could seem to others that you don’t give two hoots about how to play nice.  But true rebellion is less about declaring what is wrong and more about standing by what is, without a doubt, unequivocally and undeniably, right. And as long as you stand for what is right in your heart of hearts, you’ll be all right with yourself. And there is no better validation than that.

Capricorn copyCapricorn & Capricorn Rising

If you are going to do some psychological heavy lifting, now is the time. You’ve got some assistance. You’ve got some help. You’ve got a little astrological anti-gravity working for you. You’ve got access to insights that might help you to take flight where you would normally take to hiding under the covers.

There could be an internal independence that you are needing to declare. It may have something to do with liberating yourself from old family dynamics, creating home and family in a new way or recreating the space you live in so that you can honor the inner shifts that are occurring. 

And oh, are they occurring. 

Thursday’s new moon renews you on an inner realm. It might awaken a fire in your belly. It may feel like a bolt of lightening down your spine. It might arouse something that has laid dormant in you for a while. Like a secret wish. A forgotten longing. A renewed sense of what is possible. If any of those factors aren’t naturally occurring, use this new moon to invite them in by giving yourself permission to want what you want.

Aquarius copyAquarius & Aquarius Rising

This Thursday’s new moon wants you to make a list. A list of all of the people that you would like to meet. All those you would love to be introduced to. Everyone that you would like a moment to speak to.

This new moon wants you to make a list. A list of all the folks that you would like to reach out to you. Reach out to you because they have heard of the great work that you do. Because they have heard of the efforts that you have made, the risks that you have taken and the work ethic that you have displayed.

Then make a list of all the things that you need to start working on in order to have that be true.

This new moon wants you to make a list. A list of your hopes and dreams. A list of all the fears that get in your way, mess you up or derail your efforts to make confident strides towards them. 

This new moon wants you to make a list of all the ways you are going to help yourself through the difficult times, all the strategies you can implement with your best interests in mind and all of the ways in which you will divert your energy when you get caught up in your own emotional mess.

Make these lists. Review them often over the next two weeks. Take the actions that you can. Then release your attachment to them. Put them away and check back in with them 6 months from now to see what became of your new moon manifestations.

Pisces copyPisces & Pisces Rising

Focus on how to work with yourself. Focus on giving yourself the kind of encouragement you need. Focus on being the kind of cheerleader you have always wanted. Focus on liberating yourself from old beliefs about what you are capable of, pushing past the places you usually go astray. Focus on helping yourself create some money magic because money is purely energy and we can never stop learning about the ways in which energy works. There is always more to discover.

Use your intuition. Put it on the payroll. Find a way to remember to access it, to ask it for guidance and to give it your full attention. Focus on your intuitive talents, the things that you are good at effortlessly. Focus on what has meaning for you, on what inspires you, on what feeds you. Focus on showing up for yourself by keeping your own needs in the forefront, by consistently showing up in the world as you wish to be seen and by committing publicly to your professional dreams.
