The Moon is now in Cancer and will square the Sun in Aries, marking the First Quarter Moon phase of the lunar cycle on April 13 (10:00 p.m. CST). The Moon in Cancer also triggers the Uranus-Pluto square at this time, drawing those themes into the First Quarter Moon phase and into the surge of necessary action that this phase indicates.
Suffice it to say, we have opened into a month of quite unstable energies and now head to another over-the-top point at the Full Moon.
The April 7 Aries New Moon opened a 28-day lunar cycle characterized by a series of changes (some startling) and emotional shocks that must be metabolized and used as fuel to propel us beyond standard rhythms and patterns that will no longer get us where we need to go
(Please see the April 5 article “New Moon in Aries Conjunct Uranus - Emotional Shocksand Experiences of Structural Bullshit Bust Things Loose” published on the blog or the March 29 article “Sun-Mercury in Aries Stirs the Uranus-Pluto Square:Calling Out the Nuclear Gatekeepers, Shills, and Establishment Schmucks” to pick up more on the themes we are experiencing now.)
But there are some old attachments, sticking points, frictions, and fears that must be purged before we're free to go.
There is a strong desire to move into new territory now. There is a desire for fresh energy and for re-invigoration along our paths. In fact, these things are full-on emotional needs at this point.
The raw and blazing potential of the Aries New Moon builds to a potentially cacophonous crescendo at the Scorpio Full Moon (2 degrees) on April 21 (11:24 p.m.)
