Astrology has many facets. One of these facets is that the different star signs govern different areas of the body, Aries the head, Taurus the throat and Pisces the feet.

Not only do they rule these zones, but they also represent different life stages of a human being and of the souls journey through time.

Aries depicts a new born baby and a new stage in life; Libra a maiden in her prime and the establishing of oneself in life; and Pisces the old wise person and the soul taking stock of lesson’s learnt thus far.

On April 6 there is a new moon in Aries. A new moon we know is a great time to plant new seeds, to begin new projects or to breathe new direction into your life.

Aries is the beginning of a new cycle. The new moon in Aires this weekend presents an opportunity to get in touch with your inner child or inner being and to prepare yourself by shedding the old and the out dated and breathe in new life.


New moons represent new beginnings and this one involves you, the past and family. A new start needs to be made and with compromise, a cool temper and determination you may achieve a good result. Be willing to say sorry if you are in the wrong. State your case if it requires it. Learn from your past and do things differently.


This new moon will help you break down the barrier between conscious and subconscious and get those answers you’ve been seeking. You will need to pay attention and be patient with yourself as this is not an easy task. Observe your thoughts and try not to get fixed on one way of thinking, let them flow through your head and trust what you are feeling.


Whether good or bad, pay attention to what your friends or colleagues are offering you. It looks like there is a difference of opinion or values, but that doesn’t mean either of you are right or wrong. There is always a teacher/student exchange with everyone we meet and that’s how we learn about others and ourselves, so see what you can discover.


You could very well establish your role in life as Mars gives you the fire and determination you are feeling. There is always potential to over step your mark with this placement so as the new moon occurs maintain humility and a level head while your eyes are on the prize. Don’t be afraid to take some calculated risks – you may surprise yourself.


Now it’s time to match what you’ve learned about yourself with putting it into practice and manifesting your potential. Open yourself up to new concepts because you may discover hidden talents. Something has felt right but you haven’t taken the risk due to past conditioning. As long as it doesn’t harm anyone else, why not take the risk?


Move on and let it go. Although it’s a general statement to make doesn’t mean it-˜s useless because you know what it relates to. It could be friends or bad habits, but it is time for change. Change doesn’t have to be hard and can be as simple as making a decision and sticking to it.


The new moon is in your love and relationships zone involving career and social position. This could indicate a love interest at work or be interpreted as love of your career. Either way the new beginning is the love part. It’s important to love what you do, where you are doing it and who you are doing it with.


Last week saw you thinking big and being creative. This week the planets ask you to look at how your creativity is going to serve you and others. Learning to balance this is what it’s all about. When you are of service to others, whatever your endeavor, always keep in mind that what you say could be taken under serious consideration.


Introducing a little fun in your life is great medicine for just about anything. You need to know where and how first. Go back to basics and get in touch with your inner child or spend time with a child. Their easy-going, non-complicated lives could give you a good place to start. Or just do something simple and childlike yourself.


Your personal changes continue and in this particular chapter your sense of security is about to enter a new phase. The relationships in your life have something to offer you so observe your interactions and learn. This is the time to move yourself onwards and upwards without looking backwards.


The only thing that holds us back is ourselves. The mind boggles at what lay ahead of us, especially when we are given opportunities. A few doors are about to open up and your task is to choose what to do. Given the opening statement of your forecast, don’t let your chances pass you by because you thought you couldn’t do it.


Logically, you are aware of what you are capable of but do you believe it? Logic is of the mind and belief is in the heart so the two don’t always meet. This is the start of a phase when your values, beliefs, skills and self-esteem will alter according to your thoughts. Sometimes it can help to bounce your ideas off your peers and get some other opinions.
