New Moon Report Fri. Apr. 8, 2005

Solar Eclipse 19 Aries 06 4:32 PM EST

A new Moon occurs approximately every 29.6 days. It occurs when the Sun and Moon are conjunct-the same sign and degree of the zodiac. New Moon’s are excellent times to start something new. This particular one is in Aries the first sign of the Zodiac, which represents new beginnings, and taking action, It is also a Solar Eclipse where the Sun, Moon and Earth are in alignment. The Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth blocking the light. It always occurs during a new Moon but an eclipse doesn’t occur every new Moon. The Lunar eclipse has the earth between the Sun and Moon also blocking the light. The energy of an eclipse intensifies or highlights particular areas of your life depending on where it falls in your chart.

This new Moon has a lot to do with the relationship of self vs. the relationship with others. Whose needs will come first, yours or mine? Try not to compete with your partner. Who will be the winner will cause more problems. This eclipse carries an energy that may evoke sexual tension, obsessive love, and passion. So if there is any tension or conflict it’s better to resolve it now rather than wait until Apr. 24 when there will be a Lunar eclipse when emotions may run at high intensity.

It would be a good time to do something nice for someone in need. Do a random act of kindness for a friend or a stranger. In doing a good deed you will nurture yourself and be rewarded.

Interestingly, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are getting married on this day. I think this relationship describes the energy of the eclipse. I heard someone say how obsessed he is about this marriage taking place. He’s determined to get his way no matter what anyone else thinks from the Royal family to his British subjects. The eclipse is on his MC (Midheaven)-his status in life, profession, and reputation. It opposes his Venus-the relationship. I’d say that the eclipse highlights those areas of his life, wouldn’t you?

Even more intense it’s the Pope’s Funeral on this day. It will be interesting to see if major changes are made in the Catholic Church with a new leader. I think with the Aries energy that there could be new policy changes.

The thought process may begin to speed up. Be careful of being insensitive and blurting something out you may regret later. Ideas you may have been formulating may begin to come together. Although don’t be hasty making quick decisions. You’ll likely change your mind as to what you really want.

Mars Conjunct Neptune Wed. Apr.13 9:13 AM

You may feel strange, lost or confused or perhaps disappointed that things aren’t going your way. Your energy level may be low. Those of you at work probably won’t be in the mood to be there. You may be lost in a daydream. It’s a good idea to think of something you can do for humanity. How can you be of service? How compassionate are you?

Venus Enters Taurus Wed. Apr. 15 4:37 PM

Tax Day. Money can be a very important issue for Venus in Taurus especially the comforts & beauty it provides. So for those of you that are getting refunds, where will the money go? Will you buy something extravagant or will you be more practical and invest it for your security? Of course there’s the other side of the coin. It may not be such a happy time for those of you who are trying to figure out how you’re going to pay the I.R.S.

Sun Enters Taurus Tues. Apr. 19 7:37 PM

Ah! Spring is in the air and it’s a beautiful time to be out in nature. Go for a hike. Plant a tree or some flowers. Earth Day is Apr. 22. Start a project in your neighborhood or community to clean it up or clean your house or garage and recycle what you can. This is a good time to think of something practical you can do to fulfill your needs to make you happy.

Lunar Eclipse 4 Scorpio 20 Sun. Apr. 24 6:06 AM EST


If you’ve been in a difficult situation for a long time, or you’ve been trying to make something work with little or no success, this is an excellent time to reevaluate and let go. Choosing another path may be the wiser choice rather than exerting any more energy that can be exhausting. Avoid the people in your life that know how to push your buttons. You’re likely to get into an argument or fight. Check your emotions at the door.

Mars Enters Pisces Sat. Apr. 30 10:58 PM

Perfect energy to go out dancing! This is similar to the energy on Apr. 13. You’d rather party-take a designated driver along-or pull the covers over your head and dream of far away places (start a dream journal) instead of taking care of practical matters. Try directing your energies into something creative.
