Tip of the Week:
While Spring Equinox does represent the official start date of the Astrological Year, meaning it corresponds to 0 Aries, there is the second launch as well. This second launch occurs at the exact moment of the Aries New Moon. This year it occurs on April 16 at 2:56 am in Greenwich. So, it will be sometime in the evening on April 15th, subject to the time zone, for everyone living in North and South America, Hawaii and Samoa. The exact degree is 26 Aries 02.
New Moon occurs while Mercury is ‘Stationary Direct’ (SD), meaning at an apparent standstill completing the retrograde cycle and resuming forward motion again. Mercury officially turned direct approximately 14 hours earlier, which means it has begun to officially move forward again, albeit very slowly, prior to the exact moment of New Moon. This represents an opportune moment to take important initiatives.
At the exact time of the New Moon, it is also noteworthy that Uranus was at 28 Aries, just over 2 degrees ahead. Altogether, this compounded Aries theme signifies new beginnings. With Uranus involved, the focus is long term. In the spirit of this theme, here is a list of some of the major revolutionary and pioneering trends unfolding in the world at this time: 5G, Crypto Currencies, A.I. & Robots, Electric, Solar Powered and Self-Driving Cars, Drones, Climate Change, Legalization of Recreational Marijuana, Discovery of Ancient High Civilizations, Cosmic Cataclysms Bringing High Civilizations to a Sudden End, The Electric Universe and a Spiritual Counter-Revolution challenging the assumptions of scientific materialism.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Your drive and determination are rising steadily. With the Sun & moon forming a conjunction with Uranus this week in Aries, you will feel an impulse to take action. It could rise suddenly and take even you by surprise, let along others. Positively, you could get a lot done in a short period. Negatively, the rebel spirit will rise without a cause.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
As though you finally found the light switch to illumine the otherwise dark basement, now you see what you could not before. This could manifest as Eureka or a series of epiphanies. Seeing a bigger picture and more clearly too, is indicated. Doing so will inspire your ambitions. You may still need to think critically lest you succumb to wishful thinking.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Your sense of individuality is rising. These are activating your ambitions. Both are occurring while even deeper changes that began in late 2017 begin to really take root. Some measure of adjustment and perhaps healing may prove helpful, even necessary. This may be especially true regarding your perceptions, and interpretations. Make no assumptions.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
This New Moon will activate initiatives in your public and professional life. Meanwhile, some major action on relationship fronts, that has been underway for some months, will also be triggered. Together, these indicate important changes that could manifest as a promotion or the search for a new job or career altogether. Stand ready and adapt accordingly.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Seeing blue sky through the clouds should be apparent by now. Ideally, this will prove inspiring and activate your drive. You are halfway through an 18-month cycle of creative leadership and initiative. A learning curve process is featured. Due to a variety of areas of learning, you are probably wise to keep it simple; learn only what you feel you must.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
An important activation affecting your health, quality of lifestyle and how and perhaps where you live is featured in this New Moon. It is likely that these changes are needed and may be deemed, overdue. Due to some deeper processes affecting your health, it may well be important that you turn things around and this is your cue for optimal timing.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A rather sudden shift in your relationships can be expected over the coming days and weeks. Something new and big has been activated. It can also be described as powerful. You may be required to dig deeper than you have for some time. Blame and projecting anger on others is a sign of weakness. Your challenge is to take a good look at your part in it.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your trot has become a stride. Your energy levels are running high and you feel determined to succeed. With each new day, circumstances are pushing you to see through and beyond your own projections and assumptions. Doing so takes patient effort. The coming weeks should prove extra dynamic and will bring about important new beginnings.
Sagittarius (Nov 22–Dec 21)
A creative and enthusiastic mood has been steadily rising. It is activating the realization that you need to make some measurable changes in your lifestyle. You are also probably aware that success will require some key investments. These will require effort and discipline and not just money. Make your whole health a top priority.
Capricorn (Dec 22–Jan 19)
Mars, Saturn and Pluto, the soldier, captain and general, are assembled in your sign. This suggests that you are determined to advance your forces. This New Moon in Aries will serve to activate you at a core level. This could manifest as assertiveness or possibly as aggressiveness. This is especially true since it is charged with Uranian energy.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
An activation of new perspectives will be triggered by the New Moon. This could alter your course or approach in unexpected ways. Yet, if you are gearing-up and have plans to pursue new interests and take new paths, then this could simply manifest as the green light you have been waiting for. Still, you may need to balance courage for entering the unknown and surrender to the flow.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
This New Moon holds some exciting prospects for you. It could manifest as a new job and/or an activated stream of income, or two or more. To succeed, however, it is likely that you will have to take some bold initiatives, to break through stale patterns and approaches. This could also manifest as a healing process, perhaps precipitated by need more than desire.
