A few days after the Vernal Equinox of 2013, which is a few days after a Mercury Direct Station, the full moon culminates. The is a Libra Moon opposite the Sun in Aries.
Most of the planets that were in Pisces have moved into Aries at this point. They are applying to a sextile to Jupiter in Gemini. This is a fortunate time for those with strong Fire and Air components in their natal charts, and it may be one of the best times this year for people (or other entities, such as corporations) to achieve critical results.
A yod involving Jupiter (Gemini) and Saturn & Pluto (Scorpio & Capricorn, respectively) is also present here and though roughly April 10th. Decisions will be made during this window that will affect many people for years to come.
Here is the chart:
Here is the aspect grid, produced in PAT and perhaps easier to read:

This is another highly active period. Almost every block of the aspect grid is filled with SOMEthing. Compare, for example, the aspect grid from PAT for the moment when this chart was cast (March 14th):

Note that this grid is not nearly as active, and it is a more “typical” grid if you were just to pick a random time to produce a grid. In contrast, the full moon grid has four squares to Pluto and four quincunxes (inconjuncts) to Saturn. Frankly, this looks like a very difficult period.
That said, we can safely assume that this is a highly activated full moon, and since it is following both the Vernal Equinox and the Mercury direct station, we expect “interesting” events to occur at this time. This could be another period similar to the Spring / Summer of 2010 with multiple disasters that culminated in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
Here is a list of aspects at this time, sorted from shortest term to longest term. (You can use this to plan your time horizons for whatever it is that you are launching at this time.)
