The new moon on April 15 in Aries is lit, and wants you to straight talk it, straight shoot it, and get ready to begin again, says The Numinous.
The zodiac’s innocently experienced warrior shows us that renewal is forever possible when we’re willing to leap for what we long for, without hesitation or a trace of shame. Coupled with a pack of planets in boardroom leader Capricorn, this is solid gold, Olympic endurance energy.
So. What are you ready to birth into being that’s truly built to last?

Observe your fluctuating feeling states and let these lead you to the projects and collaborations that feel like a seamless extension of what’s good.
Out of office: The unseen world is your most treasured companion for this moon, and while you’re usually most comfortable in the realm of the right here, right now, physicality of it all, this energy actually invites you to leave the body behind for a bit.
