April 18, 2015 at 11:57 am PT is a new Moon in Fire sign Aries. Time to take action before Mercury goes retrograde in exactly one month on May 18. This new Moon is also fortunate to plant seeds for new growth and long-range development. Spring and summer are the action seasons of this Wood Sheep year so energy is with you to accomplish your goals.
Many planets are in Fire signs: the new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Aries, Saturn is in Sagittarius, and Jupiter is in Leo. Fire is the element of action and creation, not passive receptivity. Jupiter trines Uranus for new discoveries, adventures, opportunities, and sudden good fortune. Plus courage planet Mars trines power planet Pluto bringing increased ambition and ability to maintain your efforts. But note that relationship planet Venus squares Neptune and is opposite Saturn so it’s best to work independently because support from others may be lacking.
METAL DRAGON MONTH
You might feel increased power and strength because this new Moon begins the month of the Metal Dragon. The Metal Dragon, or white Dragon, is powerful and intense. There is a sense of karma or fate in even the smallest interactions this month. Mighty Dragon is the most powerful sign of the Chinese zodiac, a strong leader who brings luck, prosperity, and rain.
So use the energy of dynamic Dragon and pioneering Aries to get going this spring.
