Here’s an excerpt on the New Moon in Aries from the current ECLIPSE; to see more please subscribe!
10 April sees Ceres sesquiquadrate the North Node and Mercury square Vesta, as well as a New Moon in Aries. The ambiance pre-NM is what I would describe as ‘rebellious’: words are contrary to established values, the home, and the interests of the mate, and resistance to authority figures, Mom, and an inability to see the need to bargain or negotiate is rife. The ether, environment, and the psyche are all disturbed, broken open by the New Moon
The Aries New Moon arrives at 2:35 AM PDT April 10th at 20 Aries 40
The Moon is self-contained, reaching out not at all. Everything is held neatly in just over 3 degrees: the meeting of Sun and Moon, Mars, and Venus. It’s almost like a single beacon, the kind of gathering that would’ve drawn lots of attention in the ancient sky, as so many visible bodies converged. In Aries especially, this suggests individual action for gain or to facilitate relationship, in a very concentrated, mobilized way. It may be that this lights a fire under our sense of initiative, and as well fires up our sense of hope–for that’s what a concerted, focused call to action kindles within. If we respond, we do so out of the belief (even if we aren’t aware of it or don’t admit it) that something positive will come of our actions.
