April 2018 Moon – New/Aries & Full/Scorpio

On April 15th, the New Moon will be in Aries. This is basically a restart button. It offers a time to make positive changes in your life.

New Moons, similar to The World card in Tarot, represent the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new life cycle. This moon brings with it a sense of energy and power that allows us to start something new, and let go of the old in a very healthy way.

Break free from your usual routine and do something you dream about doing. Remake open minded to where your soul wants to go. Don’t allow yourself to lose your inhibitions completely, but relax and go with the flow a little more than usual.

On April 30th, the Full Moon rises in Scorpio. It’s a great omen for success in the ventures you start during the New Moon.

Full Moons are symbolic of opposites and polarity. Tension is high during a full moon, and this one will cause you to feel protective over what you have. Allow this protective quality to be helpful and positive, rather than possessive and filled with conflict.

Take some time to meditate this month on the beautiful adventure you’re starting and then allow yourself to recognize the positive changes it brought to your life.

The April Full Moon is called the Pink Moon, with because it is slightly pink in color, and to celebrate the flowers that grow toward the end of April.
