Aries New Moons / Solar Eclipse
“Words. So powerful. They can crush a heart, or heal it. They can shame a soul, or liberate it. They can obstruct connection, or invite it. They can create defenses, or melt them. You have to use words wisely.” On April 3rd Mercury exits energetic Aries and enters the ever - present Zodiac of Taurus. Similar to Aries’ speed, Mercury is a fast paced Planet who rules Communication — while Taurus displays a more consistent, safe tempo. Public displays, passionate conversations, and speaking up have been highlighted the past month, but now it’s time to regroup. Taurus is a sign that’s very connected to the material world, so there’s an added emphasis on what’s Real during Mercury in Taurus. Mercury in Taurus directs us to focus on what will bring us the most tangible results. Taurus is a very present sign that isn’t often distracted, so during this transit we have the heightened ability to solidify plans, gain support, & make major forward progress. We aim to be calm and purposeful. Mercury in Taurus will provide balance to the Full Moon in Libra on April 5th. The Aries Sun is decisive, bold, and seeks action. The Libra Moon will be patient, and willing to understand different perspectives. The Full Moon in Libra prods us, reminding us that it’s important to have boundaries around our heart, mind & energy. Our boundaries aren’t meant to be harsh to others — they’re meant to protect our peace. On April 10th Venus will enter Gemini and we seek the spice of life again. Curiosity motivates us, highlighting our ability to charm, communicate, and retain — especially in Venus ruled areas (love, art, fashion, finances). But, just as Venus in Gemini captivates us, we are called upon to be brave by the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries (the 2nd New Moon in Aries in a row). A Solar Eclipse represents a matter that comes to you from the objective, outside world. Eclipses can seem scary because we collectively lack trust in ourselves. It’s helpful to mentally position yourself to work with the Eclipses, not against them. Open up to opportunities to practice Sincerity, Surrender & Trust.
