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."

on the occasion of Saturn square Neptune & 2016 International Astrology Day
by Kathryn Andren Astrologer
I sing my story
Planets dancing in heavenly glory
Leaning against the tallest mountain
Then falling into the deepest ocean
All at once
love expands beyond illusion
face to face
breathing across time space
awareness expands beyond sky blue
the field of stars
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?
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
on the river
take all of me
in your hands
I will surrender
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
Shakti running up my spine
take your time
