The New Moon in Aries officially begins at 5:35 AM ET, offering us an opportunity to re-set intentions and goals for the next lunar cycle. This next few days will be about planting seeds to turn your intentions into reality. Around the 18th, on the First Quarter Moon, we can expect a challenge to those goals, with appropriate adjustments made. At the time of the Full Moon on the 25th (which is a lunar eclipse & thus more potent than the usual Full Moon), we can expect illumination on the success or failure of our goals for the cycle. If we succeeded, we can consciously release our success into our reality; if we failed, we let go of whatever did not work. After the Third Quarter Moon on May 2nd, we can review our achievements, tie up loose ends and get ready to begin another New Moon — also an eclipse — on May 9th.
A New Moon in Aries suggests a need — or an opportunity — to be a courageous, inspiring pioneer and/or a warrior, preferably on the side of the angels. At its best, Aries is a champion for the weak, the vulnerable, the underdog. It is fiercely protective of all that is new and needing a little extra care in order to survive. Think about a newborn baby. This is Aries — the baby of the zodiac, ruled by the warrior planet, Mars. Will someone please explain what “on the side of the angels” in its highest form means to saber-rattling Kim Jong Un?
Make the most of this morning. Moon goes void at 12:25PM, not to enter the next sign, Taurus – until 11:22PM ET. Keep this in mind if a project lands on your desk today that seems to be on fire, especially those of you who work in an environment with constant short-term deadlines. I’ve had my TV writer hat on for the past two weeks and have been keeping track. Every single project that “had” to be started during a void was either scrapped or revised! But don’t just take it from me — do your own due diligence — and let me know the results.
