A CHANCE TO START FRESH IN PERSONAL MATTERS.
April’s Easter New Moon brings with it a double dose of spring-like energy. Not only is the first New Moon to occur since the Equinox, which traditionally marks the beginning of the astrological year, but it also takes place in Aries this year – the first sign of the zodiac!
In a nod to these spring rites (including Easter, which is actually rooted in the ancient Babylonian festival of Ishtar, goddess of love and war) , you may want to mark the occasion with a fertility or abundance ritual of your own.
This positive and hopeful energy should feel noticeably different to the muted Pisces New Moon, which kickstarted what turned out to be a particularly confusing and challenging Mercury retrograde spell for many.
With the Sun, Mercury and Mars now shifting into the more dynamic elements of fire and air, you should notice the dawning of a very different mood: One that is more dynamic, more decisive and definitely more action-oriented! It’s time to set new goals and make fresh plans…
However, with Saturn set to square the Sun and Moon at this time, you’ll want to take your time and be sure to pick your moments – and battles – wisely!
