New Moon in Aries (in effect until the next Full Moon on 13 April)More on Retrograde Cycles at cafeastrology.com
This New Moon in Aries is a partial Solar Eclipse, so the sign of beginnings also signifies endings now. Strike out into new territory once you have let go of baggage from the past. Old struggles needn't continue in your next venture. Sturdy Saturn supports this lunation with a creative trine that will reward bold moves that are well-planned and executed with discipline.
Pluto Retrograde in Sagittarius (Retrograde until 04 Sep 06, when it returns to Direct)
Pluto, considered "the lord of the underworld", symbolizes total transformation: destruction of the old and creation of the new. Pluto was also the god of wealth, so learning its lessons has its rewards. Its transgenerational orbital cycle of 248 years average is modulated by its 14 to 21-year cycle through each zodiacal sign, in this case, firey Sagittarius where it remains until 27 Jan 2008 before transiting into Capricorn. It may be dark and scary there at times, yet connecting to one's core is the most empowering thing one can do.
Saturn Direct on 05 April (next Saturn Retrograde: 5 Dec 06)
Saturn Direct on 05 April is included here as it pairs well with the Pluto Retrograde. Saturn's orbit of 28-30 years suggests its influence comes into prominence at least two and perhaps even three times in our lives. Projects that have been on a slow burn since last Autumn are getting closer to realization. The planet of reality turning forward is a signal to commit ourselves and start building our dreams. Saturn in Leo calls for joy and courage, so let your heart guide your actions, rather than relying on logic alone.
