April 20: The moon enters Aries

Courage and resilience 



The moon enters Aries at 12:00 a.m.


At midnight, the moon now in its balsamic phase enters individualistic Aries. It marks a time wherein we may be aware of our deep, primal feelings of self-protection, as we tap into what may be latent survival instincts at the end of the lunar cycle. It is important to be aware that we do have, within our life force, a strong desire to survive and thrive as beings. It’s this same instinct that can spark great acts of courage in these times, and bring out the warrior in all of us. It is interesting to note that the moon will exactly square its lunar nodes at 2:16 a.m., making an important emotional turning point for the collective. It is important to remember that though we all want to advocate for our needs, we must work together to bring our courage and resilience to our communities.



The moon is sextile Saturn at 3:16 a.m.


The moon in bold Aries forms a supportive sextile with stern Saturn newly at home in Aquarius. The deep primal instincts of the moment come into phase with the societal restructuring of our current times. We may have an opportunity to drop into a new level of acceptance of our circumstances, but at the same time feel mobilized to act bravely and decisively now.



The moon is conjunct Chiron at 1:55 p.m.


Late afternoon, the Aries moon joins Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer, symbolizing the potent emotional expressions of the moment and highlighting a collective wound that we are all working on mending and integrating into our awareness. We are all together in our suffering, in our fears and concerns, but we are also together in our hope, our courage, and our ability to survive and find solutions. Today’s conjunction likely symbolizes the ways we are bonding together now as we join forces to heal our world.
