The New Moon emerged in Aries today with the Sun, at 7:24 AM in Toronto. Aries lights the primal fire within and with the Moon and Sun encourages us to align our hearts and minds into direct action. Start your engines and prepare for takeoff, the ram knows only full speed ahead towards the Full Moon in Scorpio on April 22nd. Scorpio desires the realization of our dreams, the fulfillment of our goals and has the intense discipline to pull it off.
This beginning moon cycle is aligned in conjunction with Uranus in Aries, and trine Saturn in Sagittarius. There may be no moonlight, but fire aplenty as Uranus welcomes change and Saturn harmonizes it into reality. Pluto squares the Moon to provide a bit of tension. Is the developing intent of this Moon bound by brute power or transcendent nurturance?
The key is to note Mar’s retrograde movement in Sagittarius beginning April 17th. As we stand under the evening sky, Mars appears to be going backward from our earthly perspective. Psychologically, this is the moment to slow down the blazing drive to the finish line, revise your actions, and rethink your goals. Full Moon perfection is still possible if the Aries will of the New Moon aligns with the transcendent polarity of unselfish Scorpion desire.
