NEW MOON IN ARIES | APRIL 5 @4:50AM EST | 15 DEGREES
dark moons are the time right before a New Moon, when we’re preparing our interior grounds for the seeds we want to plant. it’s a time to rest, hydrate, contemplate, & cleanse. we might feel insecure, angsty, & emoceanal. it’s a time to be gentle, to be easy, & take what comes up as valuable information about what you’re ready to release/change. even discord & discomfort can mean you’re in sync…
as for the flava of the New Moon: aries job is to follow impulse. aries is supposed to be directed by desire. actually, we are all supposed to be. it’s that beginner’s impulse, that innocence that keeps us trying again & again. the risk it is to be alive, to be truly present. aries is the start of life, that moment we wake up. birth. aries is guided by a self-trust informed by instinct rather than experience. the relationship to desire is instantaneous, visceral, & full of fire.
here’s where capricorn comes in tho: I keep saying Saturn & Pluto are not fucking around. out of all the planets, they fuck around the least. that means somewhere in your chart/life you’re being taught how to not fuck around. in more encouraging news, they’re also here (in conjunction with the South Node) to get the shit that’s in the way of what you’re ready to create in your aries area of life OUT. it may feel like pressure but you can really use it as a catalyst of agency & devotion to your self/work/love.
meaning: capricorn wants to help aries direct the desire & fire towards what will be sustainable in the long term. you’re response-able for shaping a future that comes whether you’re ready or not. that aries ability to be completely present to the here & now, the good/bad/beautiful of this moment, is an incredible place to generate from. look further than right in front of you. look deeper than everything that is behind you. what do you fucking want? sometimes it does just come your way. most times, you have to create it, initiate it, show up for it. take yourself seriously enough to invest your energy/attention into what’s really important to you. stay clear on it; that’s power. ‘cause this shit is short.
your horoscopes are waiting for you in the COMMUNE.
