17067738_sOn Saturday April 18 at 2.57 pm EST (11.57 am PDT, 12.57 pm MDT, 7.57 pm GMT and early on the 19th in Australia) we have a New Moon in Aries at 28 deg 25′ Aries.

So close to that last and critical degree of Aries. This New Moon has a flavor of Taurus also.

This New Moon is a loner. A beginning.

Asking you where you are going to set your world on fire. Where you are going to step up and initiate. Where are you going to BEcome the I and move forward.

Aries is warrior energy. It’s time to embrace your inner warrior. Aries is clarity and striving. It’s time to make clear goals and move to make them manifest when the Sun moves into Taurus on April 20th.

Incidentally, Louise means warrior maiden, and this New Moon aspects my asteroid Hygeia, the Goddess of wholistic healing. How interesting as we move to wholistically heal my daughter and, thereby, our whole family.

Over the last few months and years we have been transformed. We have been asked to look at where we are unique, where we are going to shine and what our connection is with the collective. We have been asked what our place is in all this.

Now it’s time to start. On the first New Moon of the Astrological New Year in the first sign of the zodiac. Unhampered by aspects to other Cosmic bodies.

Who is the new you? We have been squeezed and changed. Pushed to grow and evolve. Not that we are ever done. But we are coming out of a period of transformation and change larger than most of you have ever experienced. And now it’s time to move forward.

Pluto is stationing to turn retrograde as I write. Digging deep into those Uranus/Pluto transformations that you have been compelled to make since 2011. You can read more about the Pluto station in Pluto Stations: Deep Generational Transformations. Let’s just say Pluto is having one almighty deep drill into your soul so you are ready to set clear New Moon Intentions.

There is also a highly intuitive feel to this chart. I won’t go into the techy details and make your eyes roll but this chart is very much about connecting with the manifest and the feminine, Goddess energy and with Gaia, Mother Earth. It’s time to rebuild the Sacred Hoop.

This makes this New Moon a beautiful mix of the masuline and feminine further pushing us to look at the I within the we.What is your place in this collective Age of Aquarius we are entering. How are YOU going to initiate forward movement towards that goal.

Set those intentions. Be CLEAR about your place and where you are called to be courageous. To take energetic action.

This is pure initiating energy. The New Moon has no significant aspects. It’s degree is 10/1 - the number of beginnings and initiation. And this is the first sign of the zodiac. You can’t get more new beginning-ish than this!

So tell me. Where are you going to take the lead in YOUR life. Leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts.

Much Love
