We’re headed into a Dark of the Moon phase as this lunar cycle slowly grinds to a close. The waning Pisces Moon offers a respite from the churn and activity of our normal schedule on this last day of the weekend, but we’re off to the races on Monday as the Moon shifts into red hot Aries. Monday’s shift to Mars fueled Aries is the prelude to Wednesday’s New Moon in Aries giving us a green light for moving forward in a big way (finally)! Mercury is no longer retrograde and slowing our efforts, and we will have a new lunar cycle to boot–sweet! So, on with our weekly predictions (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT).
Sunday 7 April 2013 (2 Stars): A low energy day as befits the end of a lunar cycle; we begin with a Moon-Pluto sextile at 2:37 AM. Emotions are intense and we can channel this intensity into visualization, affirmation or law of attraction work to break old habits (if we’re up in the wee hours of the day, that is). The Moon square Jupiter at 5:06 AM indicates that if we have overdone it this week in terms of working too much, eating too much, overspending, etc., our habits may come back to bite us in the you know what; slowing down a bit and throttling back on spending, etc., is the best answer for now.
Spend your evening hours working on written or verbal communications projects when the Moon conjoins Mercury at 9:10 PM. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect, so start your work prior to the last aspect and avoid new projects until the Moon enters Aries tomorrow afternoon.
Monday 8 April 2013 (2 Stars): The energy will perk up, but not until the Moon enters Aries at 12:02 PM. Your personal projects and key concerns are in the spotlight not only for the next couple of days, but all the way through the next lunar cycle (because the New Moon is also in Aries). The Dark of the Moon phase energy isn’t going to provide much lift off and neither is the fact that there are no exact aspects today, so take it easy and get ready for blast off Wednesday.
Tuesday 9 April 2013 (2 Stars): The Moon conjunct upstart Uranus at 4:56 AM jangles nerves, brings startling insights and surprising news early in the day–probably a lot earlier than you might like. Heavy handed tactics from bosses or VIP’s via a Moon square to Pluto at 9:29 AM will likely try your patience; just roll with it if you can. Optimism and a breath of fresh air in terms of our outlook arrives when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 12:50 PM.
Wednesday 10 April 2013 (3 Stars): The energy would be higher today except for a lengthy void of course Moon, but we begin with the New Moon in Aries arriving at 2:35 AM (20 degrees of Aries). Rethink the challenges that occurred during that lovely Piscean Mercury retrograde we just finished and the last lunar cycle. It’s time to reorganize, reboot and transform the situations that were wonky into something brand spanking new!
The urge to hit the floor running will strike early thanks to a conjunction between the Moon and Mars at 6:02 AM; perhaps a trip to the gym or an early morning jog will get your day off to the right start. The Moon conjoins Venus at 9:25 AM, so you might just want to jog over to the local salon for a bit of pampering before going into the office. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until this evening; table plans for new starts until 8:22 PM when the Moon enters Taurus.
Thursday 11 April 2013 (2 Stars): The Moon is slowly gaining power as this new lunar cycle gets underway, so on this rather low energy day with the Moon in Taurus, try to spend some time in nature, review your financial statements and take pains to organize and de-clutter your spaces.
The first aspect of the day, a Moon-Neptune sextile at 5:06 AM is a great aspect for day dreaming about your goals, doing some visualization or creative work and even jotting down some notes about interesting dreams as you awaken. There will be a need to balance and compromise your needs versus the needs of others when the Moon opposes Saturn at 2:36 PM; situations and needs of the people around you may feel oppressive and burdensome at this time. Therapeutic work, research, law of attraction and networking with head honchos are all activities that benefit from a trine between the Moon and Pluto at 6:48 PM.
Friday 12 April 2013 (3 Stars): While we don’t have a void of course Moon today, nor do we have any aspects to help boost our energy, so you’ll need to bring your own sunshine to today’s events. The only celestial event on the the books for today is that Pluto, ruler of Scorpio makes its retrograde station and won’t return to forward motion until 20 September 2013–yes, you heard me correctly 20 September 2013. Pluto rules organized crime, power, sex, wisdom and mystical experiences; expect these topics to be more prevalent in the news in the next few days as Pluto shifts its energy into a more internally expressed mode than is normally the case. Scorpio natives can anticipate that their personal projects may feel stuck or stymied during this period; consider this a lengthy time out from the Universe (as if you needed another one, what with Saturn already retrograde in your sign). Make this a time to observe what’s working and what’s not and then plan to make necessary changes in the Fall.
Saturday 13 April 2013 (1 Star): This last day of a New Moon week still sports low energy, but we at least begin the day in mental high gear thanks to a sextile between the Moon and Mercury at 5:30 AM. The Moon square Neptune at 4:26 PM suggests deceptive promises or delusional thinking on our own part undermines our best intentions; postpone decision making until you have more clarity and truthful answers from others.
Mercury enters Aries at 7:37 PM so our communication and thought processes will be all about our personal needs and concerns until 2 May 2013 when Mercury moves into Taurus.
