WEEK OF APRIL 1st, 2019: NEW MOON IN ARIES

COLLAGE BY MARIE CONIGLIARO


When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. 
Tao Te Ching

The Moon enters Pisces today (Monday) at 12:17pm NDT. She is waning/dark until the New Moon in Aries Friday at 6:20 am NDT. If you have been reading my forecast for a while, you will remember that the Dark Moon phase is usually associated with decluttering, cleansing and letting go.

Mercury is now direct in Pisces and slowly moving ahead but still in a conjunction with Neptune so definitely not out of the fog just yet. The Moon will also meet Mercury and Neptune while traveling through Pisces on Tuesday evening. Wednesday the Moon will be void of course for most of the day before entering Aries late Wednesday night. The Moon will be at its darkest on Thursday night before the New Moon in Aries on Friday morning:

Whatever transpired for you in March during  Mercury retrograde in Pisces is now finally being integrated consciously. It could also be that things felt blocked or did not move ahead as fast as you would have liked or that you were missing an important piece of the puzzle. Solutions are slowly emerging with Mercury moving direct and light is now being cast on matters that had remained obscured. It could be that during the Mercury retrograde of March, important reflexions surfaced and you are now feeling ready to implement some changes.

For most of the week, with the Moon in Pisces and the long VOC of Wednesday, we walk the very last part of the Zodiac; the sign of Pisces is considered a potent place where everything is churning and shifting before rebirth.

Spring began a few weeks ago here in the Northern Hemisphere but this week, the New Moon in Aries will bring an important opportunity for a potent reset; an excellent time to plant the seeds of what you want to see grow in the next 6 months. Saturn in Capricorn will square the New Moon in Aries asking us to simplify and refine the topics of the house where Aries is found. More extensively, the matters of the house where Capricorn is located is also undergoing major long-term renovations and must be taken into account. Mars in Gemini ruling the New Moon in Aries will complicate this period, pulling our attention in a thousand direction. Focus will be a difficult but necessary element in the coming weeks, plan accordingly.

Take this week as an opportunity to sit with the shifting tides. Take in consideration what has transpired in March. Reflection, meditation, cleaning, decluttering, SIMPLIFYING, and deep cleansing are favoured activities until the New Moon Friday morning. The South Node of the Moon and Pluto are conjunct in Capricorn all week and offer a deep regenerative undercurrent. It’s time to flush the toilet at the risk of having it overflow on you; don’t let the toxic waters poison your spring!

Refine your goals and objectives for the next 6 months, see where you can let go of clutter or unnecessary burdens. Think about what you really need and why you are doing the things that you do. Imagine that whatever situation, habit, expense/bill, object, emotion, relationship, pattern that is obscuring your path can now be clearly understood and handled. Know that it will require a lot of discipline and work to do so, but that you are committed and willing to put the efforts needed to regain some free-flowing simplicity in your life. Things will grow where your mind go: focus your attention on what you want to see flourish. Spend  time on Friday morning at the time of the New Moon planting the seeds of your intentions… whatever this might look like for  you.

Have a beautiful, contemplative and clarity inducing week.✨

Let the purifying waters of objectivity wash over you.

Stepping outside of our instinctual urges and embracing a path that serves our highest principles.

The New Moon is a time for planting new seeds.

Where can you implement new ways of being into your daily actions that are more in agreement with the visions you hold for yourself but also for humankind and the planet?
Do you feel ready to step outside of yourself and participate more actively in the collective? What contributions are you willing to make to help humanity get out of its archaic ways?

Since this New Moon is square to Mars in Scorpio, we must watch for self-righteousness and holding on too firmly to our point of views. It highlights the contrast between our lower instinctual nature and the voice of reason.
We must be willing to step outside of our navel gazing activities and into a meaningful participation with the collectivity. Is it possible to be passionate about a cause that is dear to our heart while simultaneously making space for others to participate and contribute with their own visions?

A lot of things are wrong with the world and we are all contributing to it.
What steps are you willing to make to implement small but important changes?
