Aries New Moon April 9 & Scorpio Full Moon April 25, 2013
Aries is traditionally the sign which marks the beginning of spring and the astrological year. Aries also starts the next cycle of the zodiac. With 5 planets in the sign of the warrior we feel invigorated, full of optimism and energy. This is the time for spring cleaning, to clear out the cobwebs and implement new strategies and ideas into your life.
Mars and Venus, the lovers, are in a wide conjunction with the New Moon and add the spice of a renewed interest in love and the daring dance of relationships. Most of us know that relationships are complicated by nature but we will feel fresh optimism and courage to give it a new try. Applying your highest wisdom and maturity to your existing relationship or to the new found love connection will set the stage for the month.
Relationships can make you feel deeply happy or devastated. Intimate relationships and friendships need your attention to keep thriving or they become the source of deep pain and suffering. Learning more about the dynamics of relationships will keep your love growing and deepen your intimacy.
Love astrology is all about how to make your relationships run more smoothly, lovingly and supportively by finding new understanding for each other with respect, kindness and compassion. Even if you are not in a relationship an astrology reading can help you to gain clarity about how your natural mate would look.
Aries New Moon
We embark on a new adventure with this New Moon in Aries. We feel more fiery, passionate, sensual, energetic and optimistic this month. Life presents opportunities and you are invited to take charge. In order to grow and evolve we always need to push our imagined boundaries and limitations. The high archetype for Aries is the warrior who appreciates courage in the face of his fears and steps up to protect the ones in his care.
How does that translate for you in your life? What is worth fighting for in your eyes? Who is it you feel committed to protect and care for?
Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon in Scorpio
The Sun in Taurus is giving the full blast of light and consciousness to the Moon in Scorpio.
Scorpio means intensity! Get ready for a ride! Scorpio is highly emotional in its potential for extremes and might expose you to your deepest desires and deeply seated fears. You might be more self-critical and critical of others, maybe more easily upset then usual. It is a time for soul searching and looking inwards instead of acting out and projecting your fears onto someone outside of you.
We also learn about the gifts of earthly grounded Taurus, the potential goodness and conservative values of life and how they complement the honesty, depth and intensity of feelings in Scorpio. Taurus wants to keep it simple and practical; Scorpio wants to dive into the complexity of human nature.
A Lunar Eclipse
A Lunar Eclipse is always a Full Moon and is created by the earth’s position between Sun and Moon, intercepting the sunlight touching the Moon. For a short duration there is the interruption of Sun’s rays on the Moon.
This is a moment of interruption of the familiar flow of consciousness and with that we have a chance to wake up from our normal, very patterned and habituated flow of thoughts, feelings and self-expression.
Because of that interruption, the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio will stir things up from deeper layers of your unconscious. The potential of this Lunar Eclipse is to discover your soul’s true purpose and ponder if you are in alignment. The transformational energy of this Moon pushes you into new experiences and forces you to integrate higher values into your daily life.
