Energizing Aires New Moon & April Astrology 2016


At night, I open the window and ask the Moon to come and press its face against mine. Breathe into me. Close the language-door, and open the love-window. The Moon won’t use the door, only the window.  



Aries is fire, passion and action. Act first, think later. As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries energy is fast and impulsive.  Aries New Moon April 7th is a time for setting intentions about what you want to create.  Light a fire under your butt, then take action, and DO something! This is a catalyst to initiate the next step.

New Moon 18.04’ Aries occurs at 4:23 AM Pacific, 7:23 AM Eastern

Are you ready to move quickly with new opportunities as they are presented to you? The Aries New Moon is energized near Uranus and holds a dynamic tension squaring off to potent Pluto. This planetary pattern activates the themes of soaring to new heights while simultaneously diving deep to emotional depths. Have the courage to feel your full range of feelings at this time. Be active and move with the energy. Remember, emotion = energy in motion. 

The Aries planet ruler Mars offers more clues for consideration for April Astrology. Motivated Mars takes a time out for reconsideration and review during its retrograde phase April 17 to June 29. As this action oriented planet rolls back from sassy Sagittarius to sexy Scorpio, the next few months serve to reconsider belief systems and seeing beneath the surface.

"Aries thrives on individuation and spontaneous creation. Aries Ram gets things going then moves on to something new. Aries honors the needs of self, and focuses on creative individuated expression."  From the second edition of Manifesting By The Light Of The Moon, by Kathryn Andren.  Request your free copy here

on the occasion of Saturn square Neptune & 2016 International Astrology Day

by Kathryn Andren Astrologer


Saturn Neptune

I sing my story

Planets dancing in heavenly glory



Leaning against the tallest mountain

Then falling into the deepest ocean

All at once

A paradox

Saturn Neptune


dream infusion 

dispels confusion

love expands beyond illusion


bodies aligned

face to face

breathing across time space

awareness expands beyond sky blue

the field of stars 

Symphonic Truth


ego surrenders with each breath

action’s required to take Saturn’s next step

attention here, an awareness there

mutable energy everywhere


Uranus square Pluto is not yet done

Still probing and teasing

Are they having fun?


Ratteld forever

I’m wide awake

There’s no going back, life is at stake


a happy surprise

a bout of spring fever

my frozen heart thaws 

like ice 

on the river




The River




Saturn Neptune

take all of me 

in your hands 

I will surrender

melting now

across forever


Woman and man, lock and key

Together deepening mystery

Mars in Scorpio, they may see 

what passion reveals through intimacy



permeates a plan Divine

Thy will be done 

visions aligned

Shakti running up my spine

get real 


take your time
