The New Moon begins in Aries on the 26th April 2017 at 13:16 GMT
The Moon in Aries has a volatile and emotionally impulsive nature and behaves in precipitous ways regardless of the consequences. This Moon is very independent and will follow her own path of action whether right or wrong, interference from others will make her rebellious, irratable and grouchy. It is important for the Moon in Aries to find a sense of inner peace, as her restless nature incites insomnia, headaches, toothaches and acid indegestion. She is prone to lack Potassium, which can be found in fruits and vegetables.
There are no aspects to our New Moon this month apart from her usual conjunction to our Sun which always occurs on a New Moon and indicates new cycles of experience and creativity.
The Black Moon Lilith is in Libra this New Moon casting her shadow of perfection and her fear of loneliness. We must assess our values and curb our indecisiveness. In quincunx to both Mercury and Uranus there may be errors in judgement and problems with our communications, especially as Mercury is now retrograding through Pisces. Inner peace is a must as sudden disruptions can occur, which will leave us off balance. We must beware of being blind to the effect of our actions and reactions by being willing to accept responsibility for them.
For this New Moon I recommend meditating on all our chakra points, concentrating especially on the Root and Crown Chakras. Burn Rose insense and a pink candle for peace and calm. Take a Sea Salt bath and if possible, consider alternative therapies such as massage, accupuncture or practise yoga or tai chi, to maintain balance and inner strength. Use the affirmation: I am peaceful and calm in any situation and recognise and encourage the peaceful nature of others.
