We are finally getting out of Mercury retrograde... can I get a HALLELUJAH! Confusing challenges are becoming clear, tensions are lifting, people are friendlier... and it's not just because it's spring, because its still DUMPING snow in Montana.... if only the stars could tell me exactly when the mountain wildflowers will be here.
We have another interesting week ahead, which both integrates the energies from last week and prepares us for a New Moon in Aries next Sunday the 15th.
With this New Moon in Aries, we get to plant another seed for ourselves. Aries is assertive, honest, feisty, enthusiastic and independent, so think of these qualities as you plant this new seed.
These last few weeks will give you some more clues as to where you are right now in your life and the direction you are headed. If I were to pick one word for this New Moon, it would be "freedom".
We have Uranus in the last stages or Aries at 28 degrees during this New Moon. If we look at this from a numerology perspective, this gives us a 10 (2+8) or 1 (1+0), which is back to the unified whole. We have dealt our entire lives with pressure to conform, and this energy gives us the power to reinvent ourselves back to who we were meant to be. Aries is giving us the courage and momentum so that obstacles that were there before won’t even be noticed……. that just took all those excuses away! This all sounds so serious and huge and yet it can be just some simple little thing (that can be huge in our lives). Shake things up a bit! Get creative! Set an example of a free individual!
Wednesday April 11th: Aries Sun square Pluto in Capricorn; and Mercury in Aries is trine Mars in Capricorn
Before we get to the soothing aspects and that New Moon, we have one more square! This one is our heart and soul with plenty of friction from Pluto to transform. First and foremost, do not get into self-doubt... if you do start to slip, catch yourself and shift it to something positive. Pluto will help you redirect the energy. It is the subconscious, or that which is hard for us to see and understand about ourselves ,so be open to what comes up for you during these next few days.
The Mercury trine Mars aspect is giving us a chance to put into words and action our new skills and understanding. This is giving us courage and confidence and is a great time for planning or forming strategies.
Thursday April 12th: Venus in Taurus is sextile Neptune in Pisces
All that we love and value is integrated with our higher beliefs. Venus in Taurus gives this some grounding and helps us continue to create heaven here on earth... enjoy this easy and flowing aspect. We are given another ’Ahhh’ moment to sit back and just be in gratitude.
Saturday April 14th: Jupiter in Scorpio is sextile Pluto; And Mars in Capricorn is sextile Neptune
Sextile aspects are a fusion of the two planets. There is an integration of their energies that is easy and flowing. With Jupiter in Scorpio we have the power to bring positive changes into our lives and our world. This will feel very natural and possibly even hardly noticed after your personal growth. With the Mars and Neptune aspect we are functioning at a higher vibration with more kindness and compassion for others. This would be a great time to enjoy all those creative juices flowing through you, along with being a great time to get out with friends and groups of people as they will pick up on your vibration.
Sunday April 15th: Aries New Moon and Mercury goes direct
For some astrologers, the Aries New Moon is the beginning of the new year. It actually makes more sense to have the ‘new’ be with spring and Aries after the dormant winter time to prepare. So, forget about those New Year’s resolutions that you’ve already forgotten about and go with your New Moon! We have Mercury moving back to direct. This is also after the time of planning and preparation (which was Mercury Rx) we can now move forward and into action.
