The New Moon blesses us tonight, April 11, 2021 at 8:31 pm MDT. She opens us to the creative fire of Aries, where she joins the Sun at 22 degrees, with Venus, Ceres, Mercury and Chiron nearby in the sign that starts the zodiacal journey. We begin again in spring in the Northern hemisphere, and like the shoots that breakthrough soil to drink in the warmth of the Sun, we are given another opportunity to come alive. The Sabian symbol for this New Moon is “The Gate Opens to the Garden of All Fulfilled Desires.” This New Moon makes supportive sextile aspects to Mars in Gemini, where energy follows attention, and Jupiter in Aquarius, where adaptability is understood, emphasizing integration of what we’ve discovered and experienced in order to expand into our potential. Mars and Jupiter are joined in an airy trine of possibility, so creating space to connect to higher ideas serves us well this month.
Meanwhile, a mutable square from Mars in Gemini to Neptune in Pisces challenges us to not give up when doubt and uncertainty surface. The mutability of this square offers some fluidity if we work together, knowing that we’re not alone in our struggles.
While the abundance of Aries energy of this lunar cycle feels like a breath of fresh air, it is important to take the time to reflect on what we’ve created personally and collectively up to this point. A square from the New Moon to Pluto in Capricorn urges us to dive deeper into our journeys to uncover and claim what has been buried, repressed, and/or denied. Shadows are part of us, too, and call out to be embraced.
May we be kind to ourselves ~ and each other ~ in this critical time of integration and transformation into wholeness. For the highest good of all relations ~
The garden is calling, and I must go…
With great love and light, always.
