This month's new moon falls at 15 degrees of Aries in the early morning hours of April 5. This is the first new moon of spring and quite powerful. In some respects it may feel more like a full moon.
Aries rules the first house of self and self-interests. It is a Cardinal sign which means it leads and takes action. Aries is not known for letting grass grow under its feet. The companion full moon on April 19, falls at the last degree of Libra so self interests versus partnerships and relationships will be a theme over the next several weeks.
Saturn is conjunct Pluto at 20-23 degrees of Capricorn and the new moon will square these planets. Squares bring obstacles, and you have to work harder to accomplish, but it doesn't mean failure. We could see major events in the US and in the world during this time.
Moon-Saturn deals with responsibilities and you could feel tired or discouraged. Moon-Pluto can bring up deep seated psychological issues, issues with women or issues about sex, money or abuse of power.
The Sun conjunct moon can invigorate but it can also amp up our emotions, good or bad. The next several weeks can be a precipitous time to begin new projects.
