Aries New Moon Forecast For Your Sign [Harper's Bazaar]
What This Week's New Moon Means For You
Mark April 7th on your calendar.
Recovering from those gnarly eclipses last month? You are so charmingly direct, and unfortunately – not everyone is quite as transparent. With a powerful New Moon lighting up your sign of Aries, it is a fine time to remember who you are right now, in all of its' entirety – the pioneer, the boxer, the rebel, the lover - and embody it all, unapologetically. Your magnetic powers will be at an all-time high as our planetary muse, Venus graces through Aries. Four heavenly bodies stack in your sign giving you courage to speak up for yourself on a longstanding issue at work. With help from Saturn, you will get the staunch support from a mentor when you ask.
The music slows to a down tempo and even your planetary ruler Venus will find time for mediation and much needed restoration in the most private areas of your chart. Six planets will populate the cosmic hide-outs on the New Moon making April your official 'time-out' season. We all need one sometimes, though you actually know how to slow down and could likely teach the rest of us a lesson on that. Though perhaps there is a greater lesson around trust in finances and intimacy that you must revisit. Are you ready to flip the script and make space for greater possibility to exist?
Your social life will glow neon this April as most of our planets gather in the fiery signs, urging you to get out of your comfort zone - to go places you have never gone before and to build alliances with people you have important things in common with. Saturn's steady angle to the New Moon, points to a friendship that can develop into a partnership when nurtured. However do be careful not to overcommit when a friend asks for a great deal of time and resources. You must also be comfortable enough to say 'No' if necessary and give what you can. Stay focused on your new collaboration as that will need proper nurturing.
Last months' rocky Eclipses seem to have brought up sudden news around your home and family. Now it's your turn to stand at the helm and step into what feels like your true vocation. This New Moon on April 7th will usher you into an entirely new ocean of career possibility. This will require a daring leap, though you will land in calmer waters after the jump, as stable Saturn supports you in this. Colleagues will have your back as you make what appears to be, a meaningful break-through. The tension can be good as it will require a solution by nature. Be courageous.
For the past few years now, there has been a part of you that wants to broadcast and share your message with pioneering Uranus near the top of your chart and there has been another part of you that is steeped in reasons why not to as Pluto may have often pulled you into the old reasoning. Now as the New Moon will give rise to you taking a well-supported risk, explore new forms of media, teaching and learn the new skills that will help you get to the next level in your field. What you begin now will have the newfound planetary support and staying power of steady Saturn.
While most of the solar system is opposite you, it's wise to become a most adept responder versus being an initiator and give space for others to initiate. Your job is to master the art of listening well, observing and allow others to make offers before you make your move. With this New Moon unlocking financial potential, you will likely tap into a brand new source of revenue, though perhaps not in the form of traditional paycheck. For example, you may discover a way to refinance your home, work from home, or earn money from a redesign project. At the same time you are being asked to create the space in your life for deeper levels of connection.
Life's challenges can likely quicken your relationship into being, or adversely — right out of being. For example; you have been seeing someone and then your landlord wants to give you a hefty buyout while your partner happens to also be simultaneously moving. The thing about this New Moon is, it speaks of commitment with a strong Saturn in the chart, though your commitment may be under unusual circumstances. And unlike the last few years, you will have a lot more support when you leap into the unknown with a new relationship this time. If this is a business partnership you are committing to, you can expect to see most progress after June when Mars turns direct.
Are you ever looking for the perfect time to join a gym, try that new cleanse, or simply get out of that old loop? Lifestyle changes are challenging, though there is a good time for everything and this New Moon on April 7th comes woven in with the staying power of Saturn meaning what you set into motion this week, will establish deep roots and have lasting potential. You may need to spend some money first on the kinds of things necessary to do this, like say— healthy cuisine, gym clothes, classes or workshops to kick off the new trend.
While most of our Solar System now occupies the fire signs like Sagittarius and Aries, you will get doused in cosmic support all through April. While you are so well-positioned for this New Moon, dip into that passion project that is a total departure from your routine, even though a few expenses may be attached. Your creativity is on fire so carve out the time to simply play. Single? A New Moon on April 7th will wake up the sleeping beauty planets to fall in love again. With Saturn and Mars in your sign paired with the crackling embers of Aries planets, love will flicker all around you in this fiery New Moon cycle.
Last month's eclipse had likely brought a flurry of unexpected events on the work-front which had you burning the candle at both ends. And perhaps this also brought to light what aspects of your work you will like to eventually eclipse out of your life. Now this New Moon on April 7th will so clearly draw your attention to the base of your chart – the realm of home and family. There may have been a longstanding challenge here which you have simply not had time to address as work has been all putting-out-fires. You will do best to carve out the time to listen well to the concerns of everyone in your household and then address everything with deep listening and connection.
This New Moon has a unique lightning, shockwave kind of feel that simply says to go forward with your new electric idea. It is compelling, though collaboration will be essential to see this concept to completion. Network in and out of your circle, set up a few calls and meetings, though it seems to be that people a bit older than yourself will be most ideal supporters as time-honored Saturn will play a major role here. Enjoy the alchemy of learning new skills and meeting your colleagues and new friends along the way. You are in a period of break-through idea mind expansion.
It looks like you have been working extremely hard with Saturn at the very top of your chart though the good thing about having Saturn there is that, you will receive rewards when they are due and that is the case for you right now. After what appears to have been a financially unstable past few years, at last a new revenue stream will begin to build from all of last years' hard labor and planning. It will be more stable then the ones of the past, as there is greater backing behind you and now. With Hi-tech Uranus in the mix, you will be acknowledged for your courage with innovation.
