Tip of the Week:
Spring officially began on March 20th this year but it is the New Moon in Aries that really launches the season. It occurs on March 30 at 11:45 am PDT. What is of added significance is the Sun and Moon will also be closely conjunct Uranus. This indicates what can be described as an unpredictable explosive charge.
Uranus says ‘expect the unexpected’. It can be compared to the joker, yes in the playing cards, but like the one in Batman too. Not surprisingly, Uranus is symbolized by the Fool in the Tarot. 0 is the number for this card and the history of both 0 and the Tarot are full of mystery, intrigue and twists and turns.
In addition to Uranus spliced into this New Moon Seed, all three are in a tight and charged aspect to Jupiter and Pluto. Venus forming a contentious angle to Saturn meanwhile adds a sobering weight to the plot. Altogether this will prove to trigger some very dynamic, assertive and even aggressive energy patterns and consequent events.
The culmination of this charged dynamic at the time of the Full Moon in Libra on April 15 at 00:42 PD is equally dramatic. Astrologers have been talking about this one for months. To begin, it is a Lunar Eclipse, which is known to, in effect, block the past, accelerate time and produce events that bring about key turning points for the future.
Just hours prior to this peak point in the cycle, the Moon will make a series of challenging aspects again to Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto and to Mercury and Mars as well. This will activate people emotionally and noticeably. Mercury in Aries meanwhile will make hard aspects to Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto and Moon/Mars as well. The rest of the Month remains packed with power as well specifically on April 20, Easter Sunday. I will elaborate on these themes now and in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Your pioneering spirit may feel a bit more like a poltergeist under this Moon cycle. However, what might come as a surprise is just how cooperative and willing you stand to be. At least a few antics are likely though, if not from you then from significant others. You may at least undergo a few tests the passing of which will be worthy of a star or two on your collar.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
It may seem like you can feel the thundering hooves of a charging herd. This describes some of the energy patterns at play for you these days. You are ready and willing to work with the situation. You may need special tools, techniques and/or strategies. There is a danger of losing focus due to too many thoughts and interests. Set clear boundaries.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
This new cycle indicates a resurgence of your sense of individuality and a creative rush to boot. The soul searching and perhaps challenging period of last month is yielding to resurgence; a veritable rebirth. Anticipate your confidence levels to rise steadily. Key communications and especially collaborations will prove inspiring and empowering.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A new day is dawning in your public and professional life. This is the start of an expansive and dynamic cycle. Yet it will probably prove quite challenging. Of course, you will not be alone in this regard. Everyone is feeling the rising intensity levels and the challenges they consequently imply. This is a call for an empathetic approach balanced by a firm resolve to prevail.
Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
This Aries New Moon is catapulting you into action. You are in the mood to go big. With Mars Retrograde, your energy and confidence levels may be up and down. However, the emphasis leans to the up side. To succeed you must be willing to overcome fears that may be blocking progress. The key is to take deliberate action to build momentum.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Some new initiatives in your daily rhythm and routine which stand to affect your overall lifestyle have begun. There may be a few delays and a few curve balls to deal with, yet the process is in motion. It may take until mid-May before all the lights are green. Patience will pay off at least eventually, so aim to be strategic and flexible on all fronts.
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
Some shifting and shaking or at least unexpected events on relationship fronts are underway. These may be giving you reason to feel cautious. At worst, they are producing worry and stress. Your health may be delicate these days, so stay cool in the heat to keep stress levels down. Control your imagination and stick to the facts.
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
You are determined to take some bold new leads and initiatives. These are requiring a creative and imaginative approach. You may wish you could feel more confident. While you can practice self-control, you cannot control the flow. Exercising trust in and acceptance of circumstances and timing will help.
Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
How much fun can you have? Measurements aside, you are in a playful mood. Boredom can be the source of stimulating dramas, to keep things interesting. Just remember that life does not judge but does teach by consequences. Meanwhile sweet dreams of what could be are bouncing around in your mind. Dream on… but take some action too.
Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
Whatever is happening on the home front, it is probably not boring. Circumstances are pushing you to take account. Or is that a headcount of your best buddies and key contacts? Either way, digging deeper than you might usually is in the script. Finances, investments, inheritances and/or tending to taxes are featured. Tis the season….
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
Many new thoughts, perspectives and perceptions are awakening in your mind. These are linked to new places and faces as well. You are in the mood to cut loose anyway. The time is right to experiment with new modes of self-expression. Cultural stimulations will provide a few perks and prove satisfying as well. Exciting times!
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are in an ambitious mood. As much as this likely includes stimulating your economy, you may also want to realize other returns as well. Bringing old affairs to resolution represent their own form of getting ahead. This process of knocking on and opening new doors and of closing old ones could well produce a boost in confidence.
