New Moon in Aries, April 15, 2018

By Thraicie Hawkner

The New Moon of April 15th is in Aries. Our key word is “dynamic”! We are apt to be more action-oriented than usual for the few days surrounding this dark moon. New Moon is always a good time to start something new, but this one is particularly prone to instigation.

Be aware that Mercury is also in Aries and has been retrograde. It will just be stationing direct, at this point. Don’t rush into anything crazy. There may still be some frustrations and hiccups. But do expect more successful forward-motion with your efforts in the days to come. Our Van Van oil, spray, and candles are designed to remedy any remaining difficulties.

Mars is still in Capricorn, as we discussed in the last newsletter. The key words are “Strategy” and “Purpose.” If we can stay focused on the goal and stay on plan, success is assured, especially with all this Aries power behind us! This week, there are also some powerful aspects that bring an emphasis on deep spirituality, awareness of use (or misuse) of power, and some serious consideration of religious beliefs and political & financial philosophies (Mars sextile Neptune and Jupiter sextile Pluto).

Shungite is a particularly good stone for this time. It is as dark as the New Moon, and helps to conduct/focus your intentions toward powerful manifestation. Consider combining it with Yarrow herb, to help overcome any fears or sense of weakness, that might be undermining your success.

July 15th – New Moon in Cancer

July 15th – New Moon in Cancer

New Moons are a chance at a new beginning, and the New Moon in Cancer is a chance to begin feeling more at home in our lives, our bodies, and our worlds. This New Moon coincides with the revealing of the clearest and closest pictures we’ve ever seen of Pluto, a planet whose opposition figures heavily into the energies surrounding this New Moon. Pluto’s opposition can seed self-doubt, but the New Moon gives us a chance to take those thoughts and turn it into energy to fuel self-improvement and to confront our anxieties.

Astrologer Heather Roan Robbins and High Priestess Thraicie Hawkner discuss in detail the particular energies of this New Moon and how to harness them to help you on your own journey and that of your loved ones. Don’t forget: we’re all in this together!

Check out the latest new moon video below, and then read the rest of the article to get the details on the astrological influences and magical possibilities:

 

With Pluto in opposition during this New Moon, we need to remember keep our homes safe, secure, and happy. Remember that change comes from within, and now is the time to plant the seeds of our personal growth. Don’t let self-doubt take hold and dissuade you from embarking on the changes you want and need.

This can also lead us to confront the darker parts of ourselves, including our fears and our anxieties. We can access these energies in a safe and positive way with the support of our friends, family, and communities. Don’t shut them out; let them help you nourish your roots, and then be sure to be there for them in turn.

As Jupiter and Venus travel through Leo and back again this summer, remember to consciously work at enriching your life and relationships.  As these two bright stars travel, they bring up an abundance of emotion. Share your emotion and your bounty with your loved ones. Give the gift of your presence and your abundance in life so that everyone can grow stronger.

Saturn will square Jupiter and Venus as they enter Leo, and this can causes imbalances in our relationships and professional lives. You may feel an increase in demands at work or feel the bonds of your relationships tested. Use this time to create or deepen your discipline in your art or your work, and note your responsibilities.

Mars is approaching square to Uranus, and this can bring a lot of fiery, passionate energy. Be mindful of your reactions, and don’t let your temper take hold. Particularly sensitive people may become more guarded and apprehensive, so be respectful of those sensitivities. Soothe yourself with meditation, aromatherapy, or deep breathing. Delay your reactions and give things time to process. Now is not the time to make impulsive, rash decisions.

This is a great time for re-invention and re-creation. This New Moon is particularly fertile, so make sure you plant your seed and nurture them well.

New Moon in Aries – April 18th

New Moon in Aries – April 18th

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 the New Moon will be in Aries at 1:57pm CST. This new moon helps us strengthen our relationships through finding our own true strengths.

NewMoonAriesArticleAries nudges us to say, “I am.” Luckily, the gift of Aries is that we can become centered in ourselves, discovering what we need first, before we take care of others’ needs. The shadow side of Aries is selfishness, so focus on harnessing a more mature, positive version of this Aries’ fire to strengthen yourself and relationships rather than the negative. When you are clear on what makes you your best self, and know how to ask for your needs, you will have comfortable confidence, rather than arrogance.

So use the energy of this Aries New Moon to get to know yourself and what you need in relation to others – what makes you come alive – then set a boundary so you can negotiate from a position of strength.  Mars and Venus are also aspected. Check out the video:

Mars in Taurus trining Pluto gives us determination. We can make anything happen, so be sure to know where you want to go.

Venus in Gemini will test relationships. However, it is through separation and individuation that we can appreciate the union. We must honor our selves to come together and celebrate the joining of the two. With healthy souls and communities, we as individuals can create healthier togetherness. Take care of your friendships, mentor-ships, and loves, while reflecting inward. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need!

The rebellious energy of Aries can be used for good if you need change in your life. Just be sure to carefully choose your path so you don’t run anyone over. This is a dance. Take your space, do your thing, and leave room for others so they can boogie, too!

The energy of this new moon will be strongest for three days, so take advantage of the weekend to give yourself some self-inventory time, then move forward.
