We’re in the dark-of-the-moon period most of the weekend, Scorpio, and then at 10:31pm EST on Sunday the 11th, the Aries New Moon strikes. The lunar new year kickstarts a six-month chapter of renewal in our lives, particularly when it comes to our health and wellness. In order for your life to flow smoothly, you have to feel like you’re in alignment with your soul’s needs. You thrive when your physical health is at an optimal level, when you’re well-rested, well-hydrated, and when your sexual and emotional needs are met. This Aries New Moon may activate a strong urge for you to overhaul several aspects of your life at once, but it’s best to focus on 2-3 areas that you’re ready to transform. Between April 11th and April 21st, set new moon intentions that are designed to help you overcome procrastination and self-defeatist behavior. Imagine yourself already “there”, vibrating at the frequency that brings your visions to life, with ease. That’s the reality you’re creating for yourself, and it all begins within.
Today our ruler Mars, which is currently placed in Gemini, forms a frictional planetary alignment with Neptune in Pisces. We may be driven by some compulsive desires that we can’t fully comprehend, Scorpio. This influence can lead to us making decisions that our rational minds wouldn’t usually encourage us to do. You may feel called to text your ex, be petty with a friend or family member, or engage in a situationship that you know you’re better off releasing. Perhaps you’ll find yourself doing the opposite of what you’re “supposed” to be doing, and the more you try to get yourself on track, the further you derail. What if instead of being hard on yourself for these temporary miscalculations or lapses of judgement, you started laughing at yourself a bit more and cutting yourself some slack? If you’re always focused on self-improvement and you never give yourself room to experiment with messiness, then life gets pretty boring. We’re in the dark of the moon period, which is the time where we’re supposed to let our shadows take the lead. So do what you feel you gotta do (as long as you’re not harming yourself or others). Get it out of your system now, because deep down you know that once the New Moon strikes this Sunday, you’re about to press “restart” on everything, and your spiritual and physical glow-up will be spectacular.
The Moon has entered Pisces for the next 2.5 days, Scorpio. With the Sun in Aries activating our sector of wellness, and the Pisces Moon activating our sector of true love and creativity, a lot of our bliss today will derive from being more assertive and confident when expressing our emotional and relational needs. If you’re currently craving kisses and cuddles, own up to that rather than trying to be too cool for school. If you’d rather be left alone in your own world and daydream, gift yourself that instead of always tending to other people’s needs. The Pisces Moon harmonizes with Uranus in Taurus, helping us attract more of what we want into our lives, simply by having the courage to ask for it and act as if we’ve already received it. As we approach the Aries New Moon taking place this Sunday, you’ll start to ask yourself why you ever let limiting beliefs stand in your way. You’re the captain now.
Today’s a brilliant day astrologically, with the Moon harmonizing with both Mars and Venus, as well as conjoining Jupiter. You may be in the mood to switch up your style, beautify your home, and reach out to people you haven’t connected to in a while. The Aquarius energy in the cosmos right now reminds you that you’re never as alone as you may think you are, and if you dare to step out of your Scorpio cave and truly look around you, you’ll feel more connected to others, and to life as a whole. But there’s a part of you that at times shies away from vulnerability, because you’re not sure people can handle your emotional intensity. The Age of Aquarius is helping Scorpios learn that in order to feel connected, it’s okay to detach in a healthy way. Detach from the need to control how your emotional nature is perceived by others. There’s no point in worrying about if other people get you when you’re still on the path of learning who you are. Focus on self-discovery today, and when you’re ready, start to let others in.
Today the Aquarius Moon squares off with Uranus in Taurus and also conjoins Saturn, making the energy feel more intense and slightly all over the place, Scorpio. Try your best to avoid distractions or drama, and stay in your own lane. The best way to do that is to get clear about what it is that you want to be exploring and creating in your lane. Mars is currently in Gemini, and Tuesday is a Mars-ruled day, so you’re better off being inspired by Gemini energy and exploring more than one interest at once — just try not to take yourself too seriously while doing so. Adopt a child-like nature when approaching the work you do or passions you explore, and you’ll find yourself losing track of time, and releasing previous worries or anxieties that may have been clouding your mind. Much of what you seek is on the other side of letting yourself experience it in the first place.
With the Moon shifting into Aquarius as the week begins, Scorpio, you may feel motivated to pursue some of your more unconventional desires, hobbies, or interests. You won’t be in the mood to stick to the same old routine, and that’s especially the case now that Mercury, the Planet of Communication, is in the fiery sign of Aries and Mars is spending two more weeks in the changing sign of Gemini. It’s very likely that there’s a specific project or talent that you’ve been wanting to explore, and that’s been in the back of your mind for quite some time. You may have put it off until later, finding many reasons why now’s not the right time. Is there even such a thing as “the right time”? What is time anyway? And even if time is a thing, why would you limit yourself and the experiences you could cultivate because of some imaginary ideal? These are the types of questions you’ll ask yourself today. Be brave enough to answer them.
