Sun is Aries, 11° 31'
Moon is Aries, 11° 31'
With the Sun and Moon in Aries, that's the first of several conjunctions in this chart plus, the fact, that there are no other major aspects, outside of conjunctions in this chart. The Aries new moon is the first moon event in the spring (northern hemisphere) and the point in time when there is as much sunlight as there is moon light overhead, with the days getting longer and longer each day. We are charging into spring with extra energy and enthusiasm since the extra sunlight energizes us to get more done in our waking hours. Mercury is also in Aries, pushing towards the Sun and Moon in a stellium conjunction that will soon push ahead of the Sun in its race to Mercury Retrograde in May. In the meanwhile, Mercury will open doors and meet new challenges with a welcomed enthusiasm that we seemed to be missing the past few months.
The next planetary conjunction is Venus in Aquarius, forming another stellium conjunction with Saturn and Mars. All planets are direct motion, also helping us to open doors and meet new options. We may get new opportunities based on our hidden talents, that we have not been able to utilize in the past. Mars will also give us an added boost to handle most difficult tasks while Saturn will help us to stay grounded in the moment. This one is dissipating as we speak. Use it quickly to get the most out of it. Don't expect things to still be the same in a week. This is not a procrastination moment. On the other hand, don't assume everyone is being honest. We still need to do our homework before accepting opportunities. Some people really fail in the ethics department.
Jupiter and Neptune are conjunct in Pisces, and this is the last of the conjunctions. Jupiter will expand on the mysteries that Neptune keeps conjuring in Pisces. This can be a lucky time for some of us, especially those with their Sun in a Water Element sign (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces). Its a great time to journal to look for patterns and obscure opportunities that we may miss if we are not paying attention.
Uranus in Taurus is alone until the end of April, when the Sun and Moon will join in during the Solar Eclipse. Solar Eclipses only occur during a new moon. The Lunar Eclipse will occur mid month in May.
Overall, the majority of the planets are in masculine signs of the zodiac. We are less patient and likely to come across as being more forceful with expectations of receiving what we want. However, it is not an overly unbalanced chart for this new moon. There are at least two planets in each of the four elements, meaning that we have a good sense of balance and can easily pull back if necessary. Predominantly, though, we are likely to push as far as we feel is safe to snag an inviting opportunity, when possible. Remember, do the homework before assuming that opportunity is a golden one.
Meditation for the April 1st New Moon
As we play on violins, guitars and pianos, so the Universe plays on us.
