New Moon and Mercury Retrograde

New Moon in Aries
Wednesday, April 14, 5:29 am PDT, 8:29 am EDT
The New Moon in Aries is the true beginning of the astrological year. It's a time for taking initiative and getting projects off the ground. However, this year's Sun-Moon conjunction in spontaneous Aries occurs three days before Mercury turns retrograde and five days before the Sun enters earthy Taurus. Therefore, we have a brief window of opportunity to ignite inspirational sparks that will soon require the fuel of patience and commitment to fan enduring flames of change.

The messenger planet's backward turn marks a three-week period when double-checking data, maintaining equipment and communicating carefully are recommended. A tendency to make more errors than usual is common during this cycle. Yet the gift of Mercury retrograde is that it provides a second chance to reconnect with people and to tie up loose ends. Completing unfinished business and reviewing systems to make them more efficient are constructive uses of this transit.
