Although we experienced a shift at the Aries Equinox on March 21st, we are still in the critical threshold point of the whole astrological year. The period between the New Moon in Pisces and Sunday’s New Moon in Aries is a time of dissolution of the whole cycle of the last year, to allow new energy to begin to arise from 11/12th April at the Aries New Moon.
Don’t try to jump ahead or push the river -that way you risk aborting the last crucial stage of alchemical change. Instead, allow this week’s liminal space to bring profound insights into what the waning cycle of the last year since March 2020 has been about and what the newly-forming one might bring. Re-emergence takes as much, if not more, psychic energy that hibernation, as you allow your compass to re-set to Self as Source.
The Aries New Moon marks the new cycle of the Astrological New Year with a firework display – a Super Conjunction of Chiron/Mercury/Ceres/Sun/Moon/Eris and Venus. Cardinal Fire sign Aries works through the 1st Ray of Will and Power, so it’s time to show up and engage in birthing what is emerging. This means identifying new paradigms just appearing over the horizon and following the clues. It’s a time to gently initiate something new and untried in your life-no matter how small it may seem.
As Within, So Without…mirroring your inner shifts, expect some outer disruption as the New Moon in a powerful conjunction with Venus, Disruptor Eris and Mercury sets off several days of frictional squares to Pluto in Capricorn.
The Chandra Symbol New Moon ARIES 23:
A bottle labelled “Drink Me”.
“The force of events sweeps away who we thought we were and plunges us to a deeper place beyond the known. The sheer immediacy, the sudden clarity shifts mountains of intent into a different octave altogether. Being taken by storm is the most direct path from here to there. And when cosmic worlds are urgently coming through, the only smart thing is to step aside and make a huge amount of room for unexpected guests, at events you could never have arranged in your wildest dreams.” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: April 4-11, 2021
This week is your time with so many planets gathered in Aries. Mercury is back in your sign as Venus and Jupiter celebrate your solar New Year. Make the very most of Venus before she moves into your money angle on April 14th– do something lovely just for you, it could be anything that makes you feel good in your own skin…..new clothes, plants for your garden or a walk in the countryside. Before the New Moon on April 12th, there may be some work relationships to resolve as Pluto makes everything seem much more intense than it needs to be. Be diplomatic, build bridges and cut everyone some slack.
April 10th is very well starred for new beginnings.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: April 4-11, 2021
Make a note of two unusually supportive and lucky days – Sunday April 4th and Saturday April 10th.On the 4th, your personal planet Venus merges with Ceres -archetype of harvests of all kind. On the 10th, Venus and Jupiter reach across the sky between your 10th and 12th Houses of career, purpose, hopes and wishes. Pay attention to your dreams, to ideas that just won’t go away, no matter how improbable they seem. Share your thoughts with someone you trust and listen to their perspective. With such supportive astrology, be careful about overspending then having buyer’s remorse. The New Moon on April 12th is the last before your birthday month. Mark it with a ritual of writing down what you’re leaving behind and either burning or burying it.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: April 4-11, 2021
With your personal planet Mercury in Aries and Mars in your own sign, momentum is building to make some long overdue changes. Whatever you decide to leave behind, revive or begin, do it cleanly and quickly. No hesitating or backtracking. Anything connected to your networks, groups or teams has a green light. Share your ideas, involve people you trust and open to their feedback-it may surprise and encourage you. Saturday April 10th is going to be lucky for just about everyone and your greatest opportunities are in teaching and learning-whatever shape or form that might take. At the New Moon on the 12th, think about joining a new group or researching a trip for later in the year.

Harmony and understanding.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: April 4-11, 2021
Your personal planet Mars is crossing your 8th House of the hidden, taboo and mysterious. As a Pluto ruled Scorpio, these are topics you like nothing better than to explore, so here’s your once in two years opportunity. Personal issues such as money and sex are often kept under wraps but now something of that nature might nee some daylight casting on it. Is there something you need to discuss with a partner about money? If so, now’s the time but choose your moment carefully. At the same time, work is looking busy. Wait until April 10th/11th to ask for a pay rise or promotion or, if you’re self -employed, after the New Moon on the 12th to launch a new product.
