The New Moon is on Sunday, April 11, 9:30 p.m. CDT. at 22° Aries. We're in the midst of spring, life growing and abounding. Tune into the energy and vigor that fiery Aries brings. Mars at 23° Gemini and Jupiter at 25° Aquarius are trining each other while the Sun and Moon sextile them. Very productive energy for all types of activities.
The caution is this New Moon is square to Pluto at 26° Capricorn. Ego (the Sun), Emotion (the Moon) and Obsession (Pluto) can get in the way of moving harmoniously toward your goals. Flip the switch internally to focus on Vitality (the Sun), Balanced Inner Awareness (the Moon) and Motivation (Pluto). In this way you will get more benefit from your energy output.
To avoid hyper or angry energy try this affirmation:
I move through the day with an abundance
This is a good affirmation for issues with fatigue as well.
The avatar Rama is related to the sign Aries and the planet Mars (and the Mars chakra). So chanting the "Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram" mantra is balancing, whether it's a Mars/Aries transit or an aspect in your own natal chart. Here is the mantra sung by Krishna Das:
Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
