Welcome back to your weekly horoscope Sweet Trees and Darling Roots! This is one of the most powerful weeks of the year with the first New Moon of the Astrological New Year! Take time out of your busy week to think about how the actions, commitments and relationships in your life play a role in helping you achieve your dreams. Are you moving in the direction of what feels like your destiny? Are there any changes you can make to put yourself in environments that support your authentic self expression?
In the earliest hours of March 27th, Mercury, the planet representing our mind and communication, moved into Aries. It plans to speed through Aries in only 2 weeks, quickly illuminating what our boldest and most authentic sense of self expression looks like to us
On March 28th, Venus, the planet of beauty and relationships, concerns itself with the stern and disciplined realities of Saturn in the sign of future-focused Aquarius. Juno, the asteroid ruling the deep commitments we make, is also present with this Venus and Saturn conjunction, asking us to assess what obligations the relationships in our lives are expecting us to stick to.
Also on March 28th, the North node in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces. The North Node rules the uncharted path of our destiny while Neptune rules our dreams, ideals, illusions and altered states of consciousness. This transit inspires us to ask ourselves if the actions we are taking are in line with our dreams and if our dreams are in line with our destinies.
On March 30th, Venus in Aquarius squares the North Node in Taurus. Take a second at the beginning half of this week to evaluate whether the relationships in your life (including the one you have with yourself) are pushing you toward your goals or preventing you from embodying your authentic self expression.
In the earliest hours of Friday, April 1st, the Moon is New in Aries. New Moons, especially the New Moon in Aries represent a time for new growth and beginnings. This week is extra special because Aries is the first sign in the astrological calendar, this New Moon marks the first New Moon of the Astrological New Year! This is an amazing time to set intentions on what you would like to call into your life for the next 12 months.
On April 2nd, Mercury meets the Sun in a conjunction in Aries. Chiron is also present with the Sun and Mercury hot off the heels of the New Moon. Chiron is a minor planet representing the wounds in our ego that manifest as harsh negative self-talk and perceived inadequacy that only grows in intensity if we cringe away from addressing it.
This is an incredible time to open yourself up to receive clarity on confusing topics. Leverage the courage found in the Aries archetype to face your insecurities head on and meet your wounds with a commitment to be kinder to yourself through the discomfort of it all.
Take advantage of the power of new beginnings and the extra special opportunity that this New Moon’s beginning brings us by joining a group manifestation session this Sunday!
