The April New Moon starts a new lunar cycle. It represents new personal beginnings with self, others, and life. The Aries Moon forms three squares that bring a new level of frustration and tension around projects that we are trying to love forward:
The Aries Moon squares the North Node in Cancer. This aspect brings tension to our interactions at home. May desire to work from home or have more free time to spend with kids, mate, or yourself.
The Aries Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect brings painful transformations to how you handle responsibility and authority in your world. There is a direct shift of power between you and someone else that stirs up tension. Uncomfortable internal personal changes must be made now.
The Aries Moon squares Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect brings deep learning lessons about self-discipline and authority. There is a lesson of patience that must be learned. Expect a delay, a setback, or a flat out no about something. You are being urged to take personal responsibility for yourself.
The Aries moon will also form a Trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius. This final aspect brings a sense of right timing and luck to a dire situation. This aspect should be experienced as a cushion, or your angels watching over you. Remember to be grateful for the sudden opportunities that spring into your arms. Take advantage of the hidden blessing in disguise today.
