Make Way for the New!
This jam-packed week of cosmic action begins with an inspiring new Moon in Aries on April 10 that implores you to make a fresh start! Two days later on April 12, when Saturn quincunxes Uranus, do your best to let go of anything you can't control; also on April 12, use Pluto's retrograde to give neglected areas of your life a thorough review. Finally, Mercury's entrance into Aries on April 13 offers you plenty of new ideas!
April 10: New Moon in Aries
Sometimes life pushes you into a new situation faster than you'd like. Well, this is one of those times, so buckle up for the ride! If you can make the most of boosted energy and fresh ideas, you'll further your dreams and goals more than you ever thought possible. Throughout this time, just keep in mind that Aries is the sign of the warrior, so be considerate of others while advancing your own causes, projects, and ideas. The great German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, "Whatever you do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it." Be inspired!
April 12: Saturn quincunxes Uranus
With this powerful aspect bringing plenty of changes, you'll need every ounce of your concentration to make thoughtful decisions. No matter what you're in charge of or want to control, we all know life doesn't always cooperate. This aspect is designed to help you cast aside things, people, attitudes, and behavior that no longer serve you well (if they ever did in the first place). Leave the past behind and embrace everything new coming into your life!
April 12: Pluto turns retrograde
There's something in your life that needs your attention. It might be a relationship, or perhaps it's your lifestyle, finances, health, or job situation. Any area of your life you've been neglecting deserves a thorough review now, so take this opportunity to create a solid foundation that will pave the way to a brighter future. You'll just have to do a little digging, repairing, and rebuilding first! If you're familiar with your birth chart and would like further information, examine the house through which Pluto is retrograding between now and September 20.
April 13: Mercury enters Aries
The communication planet's entrance into the first sign of the zodiac brings new ideas and fun conversations. Do you have a project or message you hope to share with the world? If what you have to say is inspiring, people are ready to hear you! Take a few risks and use this transit (lasting until May 1) to do what you need to do and say what you need to say. Of course, you'll want to keep Aries' feistiness in mind, so try not to argue too much; instead, take that ball of energy and direct it toward achieving your goals!
