New Moon in Aries April 18

What’s getting started at this New Moon is could have a negative impact on money (Venus opposite Saturn and both square Neptune). This theme appears to start right before this New Moon, but continues with it. There’s likely to be something unexpected or revolutionary about this situation. Perhaps we’re seeing monetary system changes? Or taxes were worse this year? This also impacts the stock markets.

This set of cycles can indicate deception or confusion related to money and/or relationships, partnerships or deals. It’s not usually the best time to invest, because you don’t know what you don’t know (high uncertainty).

There could also be something hidden about this situation (Venus and Saturn are intercepted in the 10th and 4th houses). So although announcements about the situation may appear to be transparent, there could be more to it. There’s also something about this issue that is entrenched and demanding to be changed (Saturn sesquiquadrate Uranus).

The good news appears to come via foreign countries (Mars and Mercury in the 9th house both trine Pluto), so there’s some support from elsewhere that’s assisting the situation. At least a portion of this assistance is related to transforming our motivations and actions. As we do this, we get the needed support and assistance. This also helps the stock markets.

In addition, this is a good time to talk with powerful people or the masses (Mercury trine Pluto). If you have a project you want to propose, this cycle will assist you. It’s in range between April 18 – 25. It peaks on April 21st. Use a date with a good final result (the moon's last aspect should be harmonious) to present your proposal.

Just be careful not to talk too much, exaggerate claims, or gloss over details. The Mercury square Jupiter cycle is is in range between April 17 – 24, and it peaks on April 20th or 21st depending on your time zone. This cycle is notorious for these mishaps and they won’t help your proposal get approved.

The situation is reinforced by another cycle - Mercury sextile Neptune - which is very good for inspiring others, but poor with details. Make sure there’s enough substance in your presentation to sell it. This cycle is already in range and peaks very early on April 19th. It stays in range through April 21st.

Although it’s not quite in range yet, Venus sextile Jupiter means there could be more money on the way! This cycle is in range from April 19th – April 24th. It is a helpful cycle for relationships, consumer spending, and relaxing with friends, a party, or vacation. So leave any fear behind and trust all will be fine.
