Aries New Moon 2016
Mercury and Venus change signs
Venus leaves its exaltation in Pisces for its fall in Aries on Tuesday at 9:50 AM. Love will take a turn towards passion and love at first sight in the fiery sign of new life, however it will also be inclined towards aggression and selfishness. Mercury moves into Taurus later the same day at 4:09 PM. Mercury in Taurus is patient and logical and has an excellent sense of form. Thinking will slow down considerably both die to the earth sign and to the impending Mercury Retrograde. The Shadow begins on April 14th for the next Retrograde period.
Three major Sun aspects
The Sun will trine Saturn on Tuesday at 9:09 AM. This is a stabilizing and creative trine taking place in fire signs. Sun/Saturn brings determination, perseverance, and decisiveness, just in time for any new projects you are launching with the Aries New Moon 2016. The next major aspect is a Sun/Pluto square on Wednesday at 1:13 PM. Sun square Pluto is often arrogant and overreaching in its desire for power and control. The Sun conjoins Uranus on Saturday afternoon at 2:27 PM. Sun/Uranus brings impossible to control urges for self-willed reforms. I always say, when you have a major Uranus aspect you won’t postpone or agonize over changes, you will just know that you must make the changes. Otherwise, the changes will happen to you in a very abrupt and disruptive manner. The last two aspects are of course the fruition of the Aries New Moon 2016 as it is conjunct Uranus and square Pluto.
Void Moon Periods
The first void comes today from 4:16 PM until the Moon enters Pisces tomorrow at 1:45 AM. Aquarius is one of the bad voids so use it for ruminating on ideals, and catching up on social media. We have a long void on Tuesday, but it is in Pisces so not to worry. A long void on Thursday from 7:56 AM until 11:10 PM is in Aries, so stick to the routine and delay staring your new enterprises. Use this energy for thinking about what you want to begin. Another long void on Saturday is better as it is in Taurus, where the Moon is exalted.
