ARIES

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This New Moon cycle especially affects you, Aries, being in your own sign. In particular, it is your 1st House of self-expression and identity, as well as how you get along with others, that are at centre stage. It's time to assess what you really want from close connection to others, whether that is a lover/spouse, a business partner, a close friend or community. There may need to be more of a mentoring component present, where you can gain wisdom and inspiration from the other person (and perhaps them from you too). However, if your expectations of others contain an unrealistic hope for perfection, you could wind up disillusioned or feeling judged by their lack of willingness to be what you want them to be. On the other hand, allowing your intuitive desires to emerge spontaneously could result in some creative chaos that leads you to unexpected enlightenment and fulfilment. This is a process that will develop over the next 6 months.

ARIES

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The focus has now shifted into your 2nd House of resources and values, and your 8th House of empowerment and passion. The emergence of all that creative chaos and idealistic inspiration has brought the need for an honest accounting of concrete facts and certainties, as well as knowing where your true passion lies. What do you really want? You may have to make adjustments if others can't/won't support or understand your ambitions, or you may have to spur them into action. You may find yourself or others wanting to play the devil's advocate with both sides of the issue, or perhaps just feeling restless, defiant or subversive. This might bring up some old scepticism about whether your desires and goals really fit into the big picture around you. However, watch for new insights about this that are unexpected, unusual or that you just didn't see before. Staying focused on the moral and visionary high ground will help you navigate through this time.

TAURUS

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month exploration of your 12th House of spiritual truth seeking and exploration. Other people, your work and your health provide inspiration, feedback and insight, which bring you into contact with your hidden depths. Impulses rise spontaneously, magically and forcefully, leading you to seek a greater purpose within everyday activities and routines. Your normal style of attracting what you want through steady effort is more likely to come in spurts and starts, requiring you to go after what you want more directly and assertively. Yet, there is also a background flow you will need to just go with, even as you deliberately focus your energies in the direction of taking small steps within a larger context of purpose and vision. The lynch pin that all this pivots on is to be disciplined and structured in your thoughts and feelings, without suppressing your impulses and desires, but to strike a careful balance between them.

TAURUS

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

Your 1st House of identity and self-assertion, and your 7th House of relationships and interaction with other people, are the arenas where your impulses and desires now play out the karma and implications of your actions and choices. This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse will especially affect you, Taurus, because the Sun is in your own sign. There is a need to balance the need for security and identity with empowerment and closeness to others, but the urge to go your own way and stay true to your own unique path can interfere with a convenient solution. All aspects of who you are need to be part of the equation. Although friends and networking can be important resources for you, you can't allow them to be an end in themselves—you must keep focusing on taking those small steps toward a larger purpose and vision. That mental and emotional discipline might seem to waffle back and forth in an all-or-nothing way for a while, but this could merely be a natural effect of integrating new information and trying to find the right fit at a deeper level of yourself.

GEMINI

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process in your 11th House of friendships, alliances and community connections, as you move toward a new vision of creativity, self-expression and high drama for the future. You may struggle a bit initially, feeling that the ideas of how to make this happen aren't flowing easily, or that you have to be more disciplined with your resources than you'd like. But by holding back a bit at first, you can take your time to focus your intentions and actions more clearly after Mercury goes Direct (Apr.12). Your attitudes about the ethics, implications and guiding principles of what you're trying to accomplish may be a little unusual or idealistic. You may feel rebellious and want to throw caution to the wind, but only you can honestly say if this is a liberation from having been too inhibited and regimented, or if it is just an excuse for not wanting to deal with the complexities of your situation when you'd rather just cut to the chase. Your perception about this may become clearer as the next 6 months unfold.

GEMINI

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

Ironically, what started at the New Moon as a focus on your connections with people in the outside world now shifts to your 12th House of private internal focus, as you are called upon to expand your vision both outward and inward. Although ideas and motivation are flowing more readily now, you may have to take a somewhat meandering road to get where you're going. Your allies include a sense of internal self-worth and personal resources, inspired ideas and creativity, a vision of future possibilities, and your willingness to invest your passion in the small practical details. However, complications may arise when you try to integrate your offbeat ideals, ethics or philosophical perspective into the more practical realities of the situation. By deviating from the norm you can bring a better balance to the situation ...as long as it brings the forgotten and obscure considerations into the big picture and isn't just rebellion for the sake of being different.

CANCER

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This 4-week lunar cycle begins a 6-month process in your 10th House of goals, career, responsibility and leadership, as you learn new ways to assert your needs and wants while maintaining a diplomatic philosophical position with others. All of this helps the long-term goal of cultivating better emotional boundaries, self-containment and self-discipline. Your need for nurturing and security have been pruned back for a while, making it necessary to learn new ways of re-parenting yourself. It is now time to introduce the necessary components of self-assertion and philosophical diplomacy. This involves taking a stand for what you really want and what you passionately believe, while also being willing to understand the position of others who may not agree with or be willing to support your goals. If you can keep moving forward amid what feels like idealistic chaos (even just small steps), it will help you from becoming stalemated or lost, but your choices must come from the heart if they're going to work in the long run. Don't jump into action just for the sake of doing something, but take time to think about what you really want and how to go after it.

CANCER

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The energy has now shifted to your 11th House of friends, colleagues, community, organisations and future possibilities. Your creativity and passion become a central focus for you now, as you continue to explore ways to assert your individuality. Becoming grounded in your own self-worth, and opening yourself up to the knowledge that we are all children of the Universe, will help you find a balance between speaking up for your own interests and the temptation to defer to (or override) the interests of others. Finding some detachment and objectivity in your dealings with others can help you avoid becoming enmeshed or pigeonholed by others' expectations (or your own), as well as the trap of falling into an all-or-nothing kind of dilemma. Keep everything focused within the big picture of possibilities, and it will help you stay flexible enough that any temporary stumbling or wandering off-course will even out in the long run.

LEO

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This 4-week lunar cycle begins a 6-month process in your 9th House of higher meaning, philosophy and understanding. You are urged to consider the similarities, differences and ironies between data versus information, knowledge versus wisdom, and conventional knowledge versus instinctual wisdom. Your mission is to discover the broad patterns of meaning inherent in simple words, conscious thoughts and everyday experiences; and to acknowledge the basic impulses that give rise to higher purpose and meaning. Relationships, close friendships and one-on-one interactions can be catalysts that bring awareness and insight about how the macrocosm (big picture) and microcosm (the details) fit together. You could find yourself inspired (or annoyed) by people who bring out your idealism or motivate your desire to take action for a cause. You might feel others are a bit passive-aggressive (being indirect and manipulative, instead of candid and proactive), or others might bring that out in you. Either way, if you treat this as a learning experience you can gain a lot of understanding about how the Universe works and how to apply that to your own life.

LEO

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The exploration of wisdom and possibilities that began at the New Moon now asks you to stabilise this new learning into concrete form, as the focus shifts to your 10th House of goals and manifestation and your 4th House of foundation and home. Now that you can see what the possibilities and opportunities are, it's time to formulate a plan to bring them into being—but although you might think you see a clear path before you, there is more to it than just going through the motions. This plan must come from the heart, if it's going to work, and be built on a foundation of true passion and deep self-honesty. If you don't truly want what you're building, it will feel hollow. And if you aren't ready to create all that your passion aspires to, you could risk failure by taking on too much at once. In this case, it would be better to focus on quality rather than quantity of what you want to accomplish. Taking one small step at a time will be more effective and fulfilling, and will still get you where you want to go eventually. Other people and interactions will likely play a part in this journey by reminding you that you can't please all of the people all of the time. All the more reason to be clear in yourself about the practical game plan of your goals, so that you can weather disagreement from others, as well as benefit from those who may become a thorn in your side and remind you that you can only really be true to yourself.

VIRGO

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This 4-week lunar cycle begins a 6-month process that focuses on your 8th House of empowerment, rebirth and shared resources, leading you to (re)consider your style of self-assertion in these areas. This can be a time when you are able to expand your finances, resources and sense of self-worth by becoming more assertive, direct and active with others who can be a resource...or a challenge. The tricky question is: Who owns the power and the resources? Who defines the balance of power between the contribution of others and the benefits that you reap from that? Taking a somewhat philosophical approach or broad perspective about your own needs can help you avoid getting locked into competition or confrontation with others, but don't let that stop you from taking a stand and being clear about what you want. Friends, networking, colleagues and community may not be a lot of help right now (or at least not without a price), and you may find that the best way through this is to just stick to the day-to-day steps that will lead you further along your chosen path.

VIRGO

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The focus has now shifted to your 9th House of ethics, opportunities and expanding your horizons, as well as your 3rd House of communication and ideas. It is time to stabilise the power struggles, pursuit of abundance, and the self-assertion of your passions, with the formulation of a broader vision that can embrace all the basic components of what you're aiming to accomplish. It will probably be easier to see a clear path for this now than at the New Moon, with your ruling planet Mercury now Direct, but that clarity also brings new complexities and challenges. Establishing an official relationship of cooperation, networking and alliance with others tends to come with expectations, obligations and the need to make compromises. It may not be easy to reconcile your efforts to expand your resources and worth, with your spiritual ideals, your quest for independence and your desire to do your own thing. By developing a kind of "mission statement" for yourself (formally or just becoming clearer about what you're aiming for), you can bring some guidelines to your situation and provide some stability to a sometimes awkward and complex situation.

LIBRA

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process that focuses on your 7th House of close relationships, interaction and balance, by working with energy that is assertive, active and direct. This might appear to originate in other people, while you take a calm philosophical view; but watch carefully to see if those people are actually providing a mirror for your own aggressions, wants and attitudes. These encounters may highlight your need to stand your ground in the face of opposition or enmeshment with others. You have the ability to weigh the pros and cons of your situation fairly and justly; but be careful not to trigger conflict by assuming that your solutions must work for others just because they feel right to you. Feedback, guidance and suggestions will be better received if you can let go of the need for others to take your advice. It might feel like other people are somehow holding you back from attaining your goals, or that they are exacting too heavy a price for helping you get there. But if you can break your focus on others for a moment, you will likely see that the obstacles and challenges would be there, regardless. You will get farther if you focus on your own heartfelt ambitions and aim to establish better boundaries around those goals that don't get eroded away by disappointment or hardship. It is your own unique creativity and self-expression that will liberate you and keep you moving in a positive, fulfilling direction.

LIBRA

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The energy has now shifted to your 8th House of empowerment, rebirth and shared resources, balanced against your 2nd House of abundance, self-worth and values. The balancing act you have been doing between your own and others' wants, needs and priorities, now becomes a quest for balance of power, both within yourself and with others. You are now dealing with the realities inherent in the situation(s) developing since the New Moon, and the need to formulate conclusions and plans based on your experiences of the last couple of weeks (all of which also has been brewing over the last 6 months). Your diplomatic and philosophical stance may be a bit strained during your communication with others, as it becomes more evident that you need to establish a more solid balance of power and to ensure you can maintain some independence and freedom in terms of what you contribute to the situation. You will do best to concentrate on the fundamental framework of what is necessary to get the situation grounded and stabilised, but stay flexible in terms of how that is implemented and open-minded about what others need in the situation.

SCORPIO

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process that focuses on your 6th House of work, healing and the everyday routines that form the little steps on your long-term journey. It is time to get busy putting plans into action by taking direct and clear steps toward your goals and dreams. It is also a good time to invest your energy in healing the problems connected to assertiveness, physical energy and taking action. You may feel frustrated because you're not clear exactly how to do this or the timing isn't right yet, but this will change after Mercury goes Direct (Apr.12). Any expectations put on you by co-workers, advisors, mentors, or your own idealism, are intended to help you manifest possibilities, even if they feel more like a list of "should's" and "should not's." Your attempts to get a handle on health or work issues could also become complicated or blocked, because of seeing the formulas necessary to make things work as being overly harsh, restrictive or arbitrary. The best way to avoid this kind of trap is to take action that surrenders to your own greater good (which of course is easier said than done). The trick is not to give away your power but to give in to empowerment, by accepting and integrating the part of you that rebels against conventional wisdom. Work toward separating current situations and reactions from past memories that feel similar.

SCORPIO

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

The emphasis has now shifted to your 7th House of relationships and interaction, and your 1st House of personality and self-assertion. This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse will especially affect you, Scorpio, since the Moon is in your own sign. This is a time to take the hard work you've done in the areas of work, healing and those "should's," and find a new balance of power between yourself and others. You may find you need support from other people, or that your recent efforts have implications for your close relationships—either way, it is important that you incorporate interaction with others in your new activities. It is equally important that you come to terms with issues from the past that complicate or disrupt your experience of trust, belonging and security. Liberating who you are now from who you used to be will help this, but there are implications to deal with in the areas of relationships and how you express yourself in the outside world. This is a long-term process that has already been unfolding for six months and will continue for another six, but now you get to integrate and apply what you've learned.

SAGITTARIUS

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process focused on your 5th House of identity, creativity, children and fun, as you prepare to move forward with projects and activities in these areas. Although you may still be in the planning stages, you will likely be in production mode by the Full Moon (Apr.24). In the background of whatever events are happening during this time is that you are learning to separate and rebalance who you are as an individual versus being part of a larger group, whether that is an organisation, community, circle of friends, family or Humanity. Since last fall, you have been expanding your humanitarian nature, exploring the experience of being part of a greater whole, making new connections within that whole, and finding new meaning in being part of a collective. Now it's time to rebalance this by taking your learning back to who you are as an individual, by investing your own interests and revisiting the one-on-one relationships you have within that collective. You may also need to learn to take some risks in doing this, but don't feel you need to rush this and don't be reckless about it. Take your time and figure out what actions will have the maximum effect; then start moving after Mercury goes Direct (Apr.12) and you're clearer about what you really want.

SAGITTARIUS

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

By now the emphasis has shifted to your 6th House of work, healing and structured action, and your 12th House of meditation, imagination, spirituality and privacy. Your mission is to take your recent activity, risk-taking and self-assertion, and apply this in a structured way—a formula of sorts—so that you can call on this individualised energy whenever you need it. To do that, you need to calculate and analyze what is working and what isn't, about your new activities and attitudes, and construct a method by which you can connect with this energy at will. Focusing into your deep inner passion will help you stay on track, since that is where your spark of individuality comes from. Your group/collective involvement may not seem to fit well with your efforts, but you can stabilise the energy by remembering that you can break free of past patterns by approaching this methodology as a resource (rather than a burden). You will probably find that your ability to clarify your thoughts and communication about all this runs smoother now, but not without a price. Bring some balance with the knowledge that even subversive ideas that seem to put you at cross purposes to the collective might need to be said, since they come from your unique individuality. The trick is to speak directly but also with compassion.

CAPRICORN

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process focused on your 4th House of home, family and roots in the past. You may find that relationships with family and support people heat up during this time—in terms of conflict or just activity. Relationships in general (what you want from them, what your priorities and boundaries are, your interactive style, etc.) have been a focal point in your growth and development for a couple of years now. It is time to apply what you've learned to relationships with your family, childhood memories and any other unfinished business from the past. The purpose of this is to strive toward a new vision of possibilities, to incorporate fresh ideas and philosophical attitudes into your goals and dreams, and to light a bonfire on the new foundation in your life to rejuvenate your motivation. One way this might play out, for example, is by networking with people who can help you break free of old stuck patterns and who are able to recognise and support your creative and adventurous impulses. Don't be afraid to draw on unusual or unconventional resources, as long as they are consistent with your ideals and general direction of what you're trying to accomplish. And don't feel you have to rush into taking action, since there may be more information to take into account as the month unfolds.

CAPRICORN

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

By now the emphasis has shifted to your 5th House of creativity and identity, and your 11th House of associates and community. Having started to revitalize your connection to the past and made a new beginning in the present, it is time to create a space to sustain this in the future. It will help to begin constructing a solid framework in which this new energy can be integrated into your identity and creative self-expression, as well as allowing who you are to be reflected in any new activities. Your involvement with groups, friends, associates and community can provide an arena in which to exercise your power and passions, whether that is through power struggles which strengthen you or by enlisting the support of others who will encourage your passion. You may find you have to go off the beaten track to find the right resources (things or people), and that this feels unnatural or counter-productive, but this is likely a reality that must be accepted and integrated into the bigger picture, so don't dismiss it out of hand.

PISCES

NEW MOON Cycle in Aries
(SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aries)

April 8 to May 8, 2005

This four-week lunar cycle begins a six-month process focused in your 2nd House of finances, abundance, values and resources. You may have plans to start a new strategy that will revitalise your financial, material and other resources, or you might feel the call to energise a new sense of self-worth and overhaul your value system. Regardless of how this energy makes itself known in your life, you will essentially be reaching toward finding a fairer, more ethical balance between your own interests and the interests of others. This is being instigated and encouraged by your spiritual source (in whatever way that makes sense to you), which is meant to bring liberation and release to your approach to your inner realms. You might feel that, although you are called upon to assert and defend your own interests, you feel held back by not knowing how to integrate this with your self-expression, identity, and possibly your children if you have any. But by allowing yourself to stay in the struggle, you will eventually carve out a space that can contain and support your creativity, emotional security and sense of self in a more effective way.

PISCES

FULL MOON in Scorpio
(LUNAR ECLIPSE in Scorpio)

April 24, 2005

By now the emphasis has shifted to your 3rd House of communication, ideas and information exchange, and your 9th House of philosophy, travel and higher learning. You may find it easier to verbalise your personal interests and express yourself, since Mercury went Direct (Apr.12), and it is now time to integrate the basic ideas of what you're aiming for into a greater context of meaning and purpose. While it's important to know what you want and be able to express that, you also need to reach for a better understanding of why you want it and the implications of what you are asking for. This might make it awkward to follow your own inner path, or following that path might seem to interfere with your quest to find deeper meaning and understanding, but your mission is to find a way to assimilate all these different ingredients into a flowing unity. Your best allies right now are your willingness to experiment with new ways of asserting yourself, as well as softening this with a gentle, grounded approach to expressing your intentions. Keeping these components working well together will help to stabilise your attempts to reach an ethical balance between your own and others' interests.
