Time to turbo charge those thoughts, dreams and delusions of grandeur. The Aries sun has arrived in Tropical Astrology and emperor Aries will skip taking prisoners and go straight to the water boarding of egos and self esteem.
To recap, the new moon is always a great time to take advantage of the internal reset of your emotional clock by setting your immediate intentions to support your long-term plans in life.
Why Is This Important?
If you plan on becoming a musician or an astronaut but you sleep until noon everyday and never pick up an actual instrument, then it is likely that you will not reach your goal. On the other hand, if you want to succeed and you either attend a school like MIT or jam out with other musicians all day and night, then the likelihood of your dreams coming true, start to look good.
This is a very special new moon because it is the beginning of the astrological new year. Aries is the leader and pioneer of the zodiac. Aries is of the cardinal mode. So “The Ram” is in charge of starting the zodiac ecliptic and the spring season in the northern hemisphere and the fall season in the southern hemisphere. Like the cardinal signs: Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, Aries is a sign of enthusiastic beginnings, leadership and the bold trait of courage under the most frightening circumstances.
How Does This Relate To You?
In the philosophy of astrology, when the moon is in a particular zodiac sign, most astrologers observe the population taking on some of the well known characteristics of each of the 12 archetypes. So under Aries people tend to be a lot more blunt, arrogant, impatient and dare I say, selfish? Yes, I said it, selfish! Anybody that truly knows and loves an Aries, knows this to be true of our lovely lambs. We choose to look past such traits because there are so many AWESOME amazing things about Aries that it is just the cost of doing business.
So imagine about 2.7 days a month where we are all a little bit like Aries. While I don’t like to look at my own Aries qualities when they show up and make a fool of me, I do appreciate that whole sexy, passionate and adventurous thing. So when the moon is in Aries, I focus on the good stuff and appreciate the “dare-devil” status that could only by rivaled by Gonzo “The Great,” of the Muppets fame.
Now imagine the moon and the sun being in Aries at the same time.
I know. Its scary. But you can open your eyes now.
With the new moon in Aries, there will be a lot of infantile, “hoof in mouth” moments. Moments where people are so busy expressing their own thoughts and passions, that we may not focus on how to make impact with their words so that they could potentially persuade people to see the world from their point of view.
How About A Little Fire Scarecrow?
So that is both the sun and the moon at 9º Aries at the same time. Then the moon will move to 13º and align/conjoin with Uranus.
We know that the moon has a 28-29 day orbit depending on synodic or sidereal measurement. Uranus on the other hand, takes 84 years to make it around the sun one time and spends about 7 years in each zodiac sign. Right now, Uranus is in Aries, approaching a crescendo at 13º with the other cardinal signs between April 20-23rd. So this New Moon in Aries is considered a strong activation point of that which is expected between now and the next season.
How Do I Survive This Or Turn It To My Advantage?
Ok! hold onto something. In order to explain this I am going to have to inhale all the air in the room and exhale out a whole lot of information before I can qualify the importance of this activation.
Their are three types of planetary “flavors”:
Mercury, Venus, and Mars are considered “personal” planets. These planets are supposed to help us to understand how we think and communicate, what our ethics and hierarchy of needs are, and how we take action and handle conflicts.
Jupiter and Saturn are considered “social planets” and they represent our need to balance our personal emotional and intellectual existence with the needs, demands and beliefs of the social order that we are born into. Jupiter represents fortune and philosophy and Saturn represents limitations, time management and authority.
Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Eris are considered “transpersonal” because they impact people generations at a time. These planets also mix with the social planets and in theory, influence our view of existentialism and our collective sense of consciousness and humanity.
Since the sun and moon are in Aries with Uranus, the influence of Uranus is supposed to have a stronger impact on collective consciousness. This also means that our sense of autonomy, innovation for the future and our “liberation” from failed systems that restrict our sense of independence, will be looked at with extreme analytical scrutiny. (Hello Full Moon In Virgo.)
If you have the sun, moon or any other planet in Aquarius, Uranus’ ruler, this will have a much BIGGER IMPACT ON YOU! In essence, this transpersonal planet, gets very personal with you and your emotional, economic and social affairs. Uranus may not have picked up the check, worn deodorant nor brushed his teeth, but for better or for worse, Uranus will cause rude awakenings or colossal shifts towards individual and systemic sovereignty. Think revolution through personal and transpersonal evolution. Take deep breaths and keep stride with the changes as they occur. DO NOT STOP AND OVERANALYZE. THE CARDINAL MODE WANTS YOU TO KEEP IT MOVING AND RESOLVE CHALLENGES, “ON THE FLY!”
What Do I Look For In My Chart?
Look anywhere on your chart where you have a planet that is on or around the 13º marker. That is where the “shock(s)” or “shift(s)” are likely to occur. This may be more challenging or magical (depending on your attitude) if the planet is in any of the cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn is 13º all month in April, while Uranus in Aries is at 12º, 13º, 14º respectively. Look at any planets in the 11th house as that is the house of Aquarius and Uranus. Uranus gives more charge to Aries this month, while Pluto confronts us with any reflections that makes us confront our shadow. Pluto is about the cycle of life and death or success and failure, while Uranus’ agenda is about moving forward by using the “shock doctrine.”
Are These Energies Negative?
NO! Well maybe.
Only if you are stubborn and resistant to the kind of change that is supposed to develop us collectively as a whole. This cycle is putting us through a “trial by fire” on spiritual, social, economic and personal levels. Not only will we be rewarded with personal growth, but that progress is symbiotically shared in a manner that fortifies humanity collectively. Expect anything that is not a sincere reflection of you to dissolve or transmute into something more authentic and sustainable.
The energy of Mars in cardinal Libra, adds to the gonging of the exact squares echoing off the grand cross as it forms. This aspect will be pushing and challenging us to resolve conflicts that go against our individuality while we learn to be ok with critics and open enemies. This is also a great time to consider the advantages of criticism or feedback that potentially empowers you by improving upon “faults” that others are identifying for you.

With the North Node of Libra on the Anoretic or 29th degree. The struggle between masculine and feminine play out between Scorpio and Libra. Ask yourself if you are moving towards resolution for yourself, resolution for others or if you can find an “eye of the storm” somewhere between these two concepts?
Just remember that you have all the tools you need to make exemplary growth and progress if you decide that as we move forward in time.
Remember the Aries Mantra, only direct it at yourself and cultivate your personal best!
Keep telling yourself: “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better!”
