The Aries New Moon, on April 7, is the first of the astrological year, because of the New Moon nature as the beginning of a new cycle every month; as well as the New Moon in the first Zodiacal Sign.
The Sun and Moon are closely aligned (conjunction) to Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius (trine) and Pluto in Capricorn (square), promising that this new cycle will be one of significant changes, positive and/or unsettling for a lot of people on the planet. This will be particularly true for Aries people born within two days of the event, as well as Librans, born between October 9 and 13; Cancerians, born between July 8 and 12; and Capricornians, born between January 6 and 10, of any year. This could be a personally important event also for anyone with Moon, Planets or Birth Chart’s Angles between the 16th and 22nd degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn.
The prominence of Uranus brings unexpected twists to our experiences, with unforeseen changes of plans, windfalls and/or disruptions of various nature. Be prepared to alter your course of action because new circumstances present themselves or people you may have relied upon unexpectedly change their plans and outlook, veering in a complete new direction. Exciting, for sure, but also highly unsettling if you like your routine and have very set goals! Try to keep your balance while things become uncertain or you could get stressed and alienated. The easy aspect of the Sun and Moon to Saturn (trine) could help you to keep a more level head, testing the viability of your new choices.
Pluto, on the other hand, adds intensity and wilfulness. You could feel like pitting yourself against the will of others, in an intense struggle to assert your own will. The difficult nature of this transit (square) calls however for greater caution in order to avoid destructive emotional extremes, painful separations etc.
