New Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries: Sudden new beginning

April 17, 2016 at 11:57 pm | Posted in Astrology | Comments Off on New Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries: Sudden new beginning



Today’s New Moon is together, or conjunct with Uranus, the planet of surprises and sudden twists and turns. The first New Moon after Spring Equinox in 18 degrees Aries today is a potent day to start anew. With Uranus, get ready, fasten your seatbelts!

Aries is already fast, always on the move. Uranus will bring a sudden jolt, something coming out of the blue to get you started. Very often, a new start means leaving something behind, and very often reluctantly, because anything you’re used to feels right somehow, even if you’re in pain.

Uranus and New Moon will hear none of that, so get ready for the surprise beginning. This is a good day, a good sign, if you choose to think it so. It’s time to leave behind the old, and start again. In astrological terms, depending where this triple Sun/Moon/Uranus conjunction falls in your chart, you know…

2016-04 W16: Forecasts for Week 16 of 2016

Spring is here.  We hope you get out in the sunshine and enjoy it when possible.  We are a month or less away from the Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and this is a relatively quiet time astrologically.  Overall, you can “get things done” and should use this window to do just that.  But life is short, so just remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Weeks 15 and 16 are relatively quiet with primarily Mercury aspects bringing us our information and our need to change.  However, Mars is “slowing down” now and will station retrograde on April 17th followed by Pluto station retrograde on April 18th.  Mercury soon follows with station retrograde on April 28th.  “Things” grind to a halt during this window, and we have to review and reconsider our plans and efforts with little forward progress until after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 16 (W16)

Archive of Week 15

Sunday April 10th

As we mentioned yesterday, you are likely starting to “feel” (experience) the retrograde stations of Mars (April 17th) and Mercury (April 28th).  Little (and sometimes large) setbacks are making progress more difficult.

With Mercury perfecting a quincunx to Mars today, you feel this strongly.  For a number of people, today is unpleasant and may even turn dangerous.  Be careful.

Mercury will quincunx Saturn on Friday (similar to today), and Venus will quincunx Jupiter next Saturday followed by the Mars retrograde station on Sunday.  In simple terms: “Next Weekend Sucks.”  Fear not, the middle of the week has a few good aspects for you.

Monday April 11th

Lunar aspects predominate today with the Moon void near 2 PM CDT.  This is a much better day that yesterday though some of you may still feel the aftershocks.  Accomplish what you can in the morning and spend the afternoon and evening clearing out what did not work and resting.  This will be a busy week.

Tuesday April 12th

Mercury aspects Uranus in the early hours favoring writers and other communicators but bringing surprises to many of the rest of us.  Typically these should be benevolent surprises for most.  Venus trines Mars brings the ability to “get things done,” and this may be the best day this week for accomplishment.  Use it wisely.

Wednesday April 13th

Lunar aspects dominate again today.  The occasional problem surfaces, but you can push past it and you should do just that.  Tuesday’s grace continues today, and you will need it to achieve what must be done before the coming storm.

Thursday April 14th

The window closes after today.  You may feel so good by today that you come to believe that nothing can go wrong.  That is a foolish attitude to adopt; do not be lured into it.  Mercury trine Jupiter will help you accomplish today what you could not finish on Tuesday or Wednesday but, again, the window is closed after today.  Use today wisely.

Friday April 15th

Federal Income Taxes are due today for “natural persons” (not corporations or similar entities), Mercury perfects a quincunx to Saturn, and “things” begin to fall apart.  Do not be surprised at any lack of progress today but do congratulate yourself if you do accomplish something useful.  Please do realize that you may need to revisit your “accomplishment” later for some “tuning” or adjustment.

Once your taxes are done, take off today as much as possible.  If you have worked hard this week and done what needed to be done, then you will need the “down time.”

Saturday April 16th

Venus perfects quincunx to Jupiter, and today does not seem like much fun to many people.  Well planned family outings go awry, the plumbing springs a leak during your nap, and “things” simply do not go as planned.  Chances are good you will have unanticipated expenses.  If you did not feel tomorrow’s upcoming Mars retrograde station yet, then you will likely “feel” it today.

Melanie's Astro~News

“What’s with the ARIES Fire?” was a question in the last phase and Astro~News, when the Spring Equinox was already here but residual more-than-Winter Blues from the PI Total Solar Eclipse and going all the way back to the CAP New Moon with PLUTO on Jan 9 (remember that one?) were still hanging like heavy rain clouds in the atmosphere.

The New Moon in ARIES with URANUS is a game changer. Or rather: Game Over!
You are FREE.
CAP would say: “Use the Freedom wisely…”. Well, yeah.

But let’s start here, says AR, with URANUS the Liberator which is catalyzed by the New Moon:

BE Free as you ARE.

Realize your intrinsic FREE Nature.

Every moment is fresh and new, and the freedom is in what comes into being. Always unknowable. And NOW THIS!

Aries New Moon Ritual.

Women's Healing & Spirituality

new lifeHere we are at the Aries New Moon.  A new astrological year.  It is said it’s also a super moon, so this one feels more intense than usual.

The energies at this juncture are interesting.  I’m full of piss and vinegar, I want to get stuff done, get stuff going, get things off the ground. I’m spring cleaning (more releasing and getting rid of stuff) like crazy.    It could be a nesting phase but it’s also energetic I’m prepping, changing and clearing old energies for new ones.

I have 3 Spirit Masks I’ve made, all very similar. Dark blue with stars, feathers, sparkles…and I feel the urge to burn transcend them from a separate entity of me to an embodiment within me as they turn to ash.  This is what this New Moon is calling of us…TRANSCENDENCE…CHANGE…it’s an invocation from the dark to light!

Yet there is still…

Super-Charged New Moon in Aries 4-7-16

“The man who does not value himself cannot value anything or anyone.” – Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism

A Super New Moon at 18 degrees Aries on April 7th makes clear that it’s time to cut out all of the nonsense from our lives and schedules or else be taken down by the constantly voracious Time Eaters whose need is like a bottomless pit. There have been many setbacks to our progress since November of 2016 but the winds of blessed change have arrived. With the South Node conjunct Ceres and Chiron we’ve recently been doing a lot of deep soul cleansing collectively and some have all but drowned in the emotionalism of it all. A strong Uranus influence with the New Moon in Aries helps shake off the stuckness and debris of a very tumultuous New Year, catapulting us into exciting new directions.

Rubys Readings


NEW MOON in Aries
by Ruby

Thursday morning a exciting, innovative New Moon occurs in Aries. The New Moon in Aries is a great time to commit to some personal goals that help you express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It’s time to take action and try something new and innovative, go with this energy, because our confidence is high, and yes I said go after what you want! This is the green light, so go! (how often do I get to write that). We’re better able to assert ourselves more so now without coming off as harsh or abrasive. It’s a
good time to take charge of your life, be courageous and perhaps start some kind of new project, by doing so you can learn how to harness in your own personal power!

This cycle is so strong that it’s a good time to re-evaluate…

What is a Black Moon

April 17, 2016 at 10:35 pm | Posted in Astrology | Comments Off on What is a Black Moon


Picture P29In some languages of Nordic people there are more than a dozen definitions for ‘snow” that shows a role the snow plays in their life. Something similar happens with the Moon, though we have one word “Moon” we love diversifying it as Blue Moon, Cold Moon, Super Moon, Red Moon, Black Moon… In recent years the term ‘Black Moon’ has been made rather popular by astrologers and followers of some religions, but at the same time Black Moon is not well known in the astronomy world where there is even no single accepted definition of Black Moon.

In Astronomy this term has been commonly used to refer to any of the following phenomena associated with the New Moon:

Current Astrology: Aries, Mars & Current Transits

ASTROLOGY by Barry Kerr

By Barry Kerr, evolutionary astrologer

The Sun moved into Aries on March 19. Aries

Aries is ruled by planet Mars. At the “beginning” of the circular zodiac, Aries represents the fiery insertion of the spirit into the physical world of time and space. When each of us is conceived, a spark of our soul light ignites our human embryonic form and sets in motion a trajectory of our soul’s power to cause change in this world. It begins with the multitude of tiny changes that form our body and continues after birth to develop our personality and empower the physical actions we assert with our tiny bodies. This spark of spirit is what Mars represents in us.

Mars is the assertion of our individual power and thus relates to decisiveness, aggression, protection, desire and action. This is the stuff in us that causes change to happen in alignment with our unique…

The energies are much more smooth after coming round the bend to this beautiful New Moon Eve 4/6 day. The primary single key number here is 10, which of course breaks down to 1 with the sacred geometry of zero taking us into the Longer Now of Unconditional Love. Venus and Mercury are now in Aries too, and the moon is too, which makes 4 heavenly bodies all in Aries! Also, one of my grandsons turns 13. We have three birthdays in our family this week, neat cosmic synchronicity. April is all about new beginnings, lots and lots of busy work. Breaking free of old patterns, like the habit of procrastination.

I personally am a Cancer on the cusp of Leo with Pisces moon and Aries rising, so the incoming wave of energies which have pushed us forward from the eclipses and equinox in dreamy Pisces have been quite a…

Alchemy Astrology

A good time to: recognize your own worth and apply that realization to promote effortless self discipline. In other words, what is it that you do well ‘and’ it’s fun for you? Practice that.

Challenges: A tendency to become overly involved in luxury and the desire to attain more bang for your buck.

Balance:  Recognize the beauty in your life and how it enriches your contentment. It can help to add something beautiful to your environment. You know, like a vase of flowers, an art piece, music, or anything that represents beauty to you.

State of the Moon: New Moon April 7

Northern Lights Witch

State of the moon

This new moon is apparently a super moon. I’m not sure what that means – usually, a super moon appears to be 15-30% larger in the sky, but if it’s a new moon we won’t see that effect.

Suffice to say, the energy of the moon will be amplified.

This is a very fiery week for the stars – planets are moving into Aries, Taurus, AND Sagittarius. This fire is tempered by the energy of the upcoming new moon, a very introspective, dark, and possibly secretive energy. Now is the perfect time to do some serious thinking and planning.

This has been a powerful year. You might be feeling especially drained from the recent eclipses (I know I’m feeling the aftershocks). A new moon is a great time for introspection, for working out the lessons in the drama. This new moon continues to build on the theme of transformation, though…
