New Moon in Aries – Things Start to Move

We have a new Moon in Aries on Sunday April 11th (or April 12th, depending on where you are in the world). This is the first new Moon of the Astrological year and it is when things start to move forward. With Sun, Mercury, Venus and Chiron also currently in Aries, this is all about new beginnings and there is plenty of fiery energy to propel us forward. If you have been feeling lethargic recently, that should quickly change now. Instead of sitting around waiting for life to happen, we will be more inclined to just ‘go get it’.

Today is the perfect opportunity to set goals for the next month. This new Moon is ruled by Mars, which is currently in Gemini. You should find that your instinct is to look at the bigger picture and you will be using your gut to make some pretty daring moves.The focus is on seeking out opportunities and having no doubt that you can win at life! This is an optimistic and impulsive few days and while that is great for progress, be cautious of rushing in to something too quickly. You will still need to consider any potential consequences to yourself and to others. This is particularly important if you have been feeling stifled or oppressed, as the temptation will be to rush in where angels fear to tread. Overall though, things are beginning to look a lot brighter.
