ARIES NEW MOON – APRIL 18, 2015
New Moons always symbolize new beginnings, but in the Astrological World, the Aries New Moon carries special significance. Not only is it a new Moon, but it is the beginning of the Astrological New Year. At the new moon we set our intentions for the coming month , - at this new moon we can go further and do some long range planning for the entire year.
At the Pisces new moon March 20, 2015 -the end of the last yearly cycle, it was also the day of the Spring Equinox, when day and night hold equal sway. We were called upon to reevaluate our accomplishments and goals, understand that we are all part of something greater than ourselves. Examined our fears and blocks, and know that soon we would leave the darkness behind and prepare to start again. We are coming from the confusion and doubt of the nebulous and oftentimes dark, watery world into the light of Spring.
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and ruled by the element fire. We move forward with enthusiasm and courage in the face of the unknown. It is about new beginnings, new possibilities, and asserting our own individuality. Like the beautiful daffodils and crocuses, we break through the frozen ground of our own winters to take up the challenges of the New Year. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Aries: Happy Birthday and Happy New Year Aries!! It’s your time to shine, especially if you were born around the 16, 17th and 18th. Just be careful not to overdo it this month. Fun loving Jupiter in your house of fun and pleasure wants to “party like it’s 1999,”but sobering Saturn opposing Venus (love and money) helps to put on the brakes. Have fun in local spots and leave the long distance jaunts for another time.
Taurus: This is an introspective time with the New Moon falling in your house of fear and worry. Serious thoughts about home and family take center stage at the moment. Home improvements are great, but Saturn in the 8th house of shared resources, taxes and financial issues calls for discipline and control in spending. Make sure you cross your T’s and dot your I’s.
Gemini: Friends, Groups and lots of conversation. New friends come into your life and old ones reappear. What a great time to show what you can do and sell your wares. Baby you’ve got it! You’re looking good with beautiful Venus in your first house of self but partners can feel cold and grumpy. “Dazzle em” with your charm and watch them melt.
Cancer: Worry, Worry, Worry. You are preoccupied with career, health and work matters. You feel like you are working so hard but success and reward seem to be elusive. Responsibilities and troubles with coworkers seem to be draining your energy. Relax as Jupiter goes forward in direct motion bring with it financial rewards and recognition.
Leo: Thoughts of faraway places preoccupy you now whether in reality or by watching the Travel Channel. Either way, fun in the picture and if you don’t already have your ticket, it’s a good time to make plans. It’s also a good time to take those classes you’ve been thinking about. Some legal issues could come to the fore, but supportive Jupiter lends a hand for a positive outcome.
Virgo: Virgo’s need for order and skill for organization is well known and now is the perfect time to clean out those closets, both materially and mentally. You’ll need the space for the new ideas coming this spring. Partner’s assets and partnerships are up for scrutiny. Have you thought ideas out completely? Your long term financial planning could use a review.
Libra: Relationships and partnerships of every ilk are highlighted this month. No more sitting on the fence Libra – it’s time to make that decision. No matter how you decide, you’ll feel better once you do. You may find that someone you never would have expected or very different from your usual type suddenly comes into your life and you just can’t resist. Be careful, he or she could disappear just as quickly as they arrived.
Scorpio: Work is intense this month with a lot of activity. Employees or coworkers may assume an aggressive stance causing your nerves to jangle. Try to relax and not take everything so seriously or sudden health upsets could result.
Sagittarius: With Jupiter your ruling planet finally moving forward this month in your house of pleasure, fun and creativity, it’s time to implement all those new ideas that have been brewing. Let loose by having fun with children or let your own inner child come out ready to enjoy the coming Spring. It’s also a good time to buy that Lottery ticket!
Capricorn. There is lots of activity around home this month. It’s a good time to make those repairs that you’ve been avoiding since unexpected problems could spring up. Relationships with family members and parents could be a bit touchy. Tread lightly.
Aquarius. Uranus is in your third house of communication and like a lightning bolt, new ideas come flooding in and interesting conversations abound. Slow down! Although communication and mental processes are fast and furious, whether driving or speaking, it’s best to lighten up on the gas pedal.
Pisces: With your second house of finances highlighted this month, money issues could bring sudden windfalls or unexpected bills. Over spending is always a danger with Uranus in impulsive Aries. Time to focus on your resources and take stock. Do you really need it???
