April 2012 Full & New Moons: Full Moon in Libra & New Moon in Taurus
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are exactly opposing one another in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of endings, culminations, and things coming to fruition. A new moon occurs when when the transit Sun and Moon are in the exact same spot in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism.
April 6th 2012 Full Moon in Libra
A full moon occurs at 3:19PM ET at 17 degrees 23 minutes of Libra. In Libra, this Full Moon is good to examine relationships and commitment. Issues in relationships will be a topic on people's minds, and what it means to be committed. You can spend some quality, one-on-one time with a loved one or partner, trying to get closer to one another. Issues related to equality and discrimination may be evaluated. We all may wonder about finding peace and harmony, and whether or not that's even possible, and want to do something about all the fighting. We may try to strike a balance wherever we can, bringing harmony into our own lives. If you're a Libra Sun, Moon, or mid-Libra rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
April 21st 2012 New Moon in Taurus
A new moon occurs at 3:18AM ET at 1 degree 35 minutes of Taurus. In Taurus, this New Moon is good to get in touch with your senses. Eat rich foods, wear luxurious fabrics, listen to melodic music, watch sunset. Experience life using your senses and feel rooted in your body and to the Earth. In an Earth sign, we can do more for our planet. This New Moon sextiles Neptune, so if we do something for the Earth, it'll likely be related to water (our oceans, lakes, drinking water, etc.), and we may be drawn more to music, stimulating our sense of hearing. We could also focus on the arts, our dreams, or subconscious. If you're a Taurus Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.

On March 2nd, Mercury will enter your zodiac sign of Aries. This could make you feel more talkative, engaging, wanting to communicate more with people and let everyone know what exactly is on your mind. Just be careful you’re not too outspoken or you may step on some toes. On the 20th, the Sun also enters your sign of Aries, so you may feel an increase in vitality and stamina, and want to put yourself out there more, taking more chances or wanting more attention for something. And an early happy birthday to all of you March-born Aries! Venus enters the sign of Taurus on the 5th, and this could spell something good regarding your finances. You may want to be careful you don’t overspend or overextend yourself financially. If you have to make a big purchase, this could be a good time to do it, as long as you don’t get tempted to go for the newest, most expensive thing, simply because it’s the newest, most expensive thing.
During the month of March, we will begin another of those dreaded Mercury retrogrades, when a planet appears to be moving backwards from our vantage point here on Earth, and everything gets a little wonky. Alas, this one may be especially difficult for you because it will start in your sign, Aries. Mercury begins its retrograde on March 11th at six degrees of Aries, so those of you born between March 20th and 26th will likely feel this most. If you have a personal planet in the early sign of Aries, or an Aries rising, this could also impact you most. Be cautious in making long-term plans, as you may need to alter them. Try not to sign any contracts or deal with anything related to technology. While Mercury is in Aries, you may feel as if most things aren’t going your way for some unknown, head-scratching reason. Mercury will retrograde into Pisces on the 23rd, and remain there for the rest of the retrograde, which ends on April 4th. At that point, you may see some things you thought were over rearing their ugly head yet again. Things may get undone. Of course, if Mercury was retrograde when you were born, or if you have Mercury retrograde in your progressed chart, you shouldn’t have as many problems as the rest of us.
On March 8th, a full moon will occur in Virgo. This could bring about an ending of something with your work. If you’ve been working on a long-term project, it could come to a close now. If you have an unhealthy habit you want to break, this could be the moon to do it under. On March 22nd, a new moon occurs in your sign of Aries, but very early in the sign, so those born March 20th - 24th will likely feel it most. This could make all Aries feel like trying something new or be daring. You could also try to get rid of something old to make room for something new.
Venus, your ruler, enters your sign of Taurus on the 5th, a harmonious position for you that could make you feel more at ease with yourself. You may feel more romantic, or want to spend more time doing something artistic. You may also want to seek out a romantic partner, if you’re unattached. On March 2nd, Mercury enters Aries, and you may feel like keeping your thoughts and opinions to yourself. You may do more thinking on your own than with others, and feel that you need to recharge mentally by withdrawing. When the Sun enters Aries on the 20th, this could become more pronounced, and you may want to keep yourself in the background and isolated. You may feel that others drain you more, and you need more alone time than usual. It’s usually just temporary, so don’t worry about it. We all have times where we just want to be left alone.
On March 11th, we begin another round of Mercury retrograde. A planet is retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards from our vantage point on Earth, and it tends to throw the things the planet rules out of whack. For you, this retrograde could bring back some old things from the past, those proverbial skeletons out of the closet. You may need to do more to get rid of them this time, once and for all. Mercury will retrograde into Pisces on the 23rd, and at that point, you may see problems with a group that you belong to, or have something come up with an old one you used to be involved in. You may need to change direction regarding a hope or dream for your future. You could reconnect with an old friend. This retrograde ends on April 4th. As always, if your natal or progressed Mercury is retrograde, then you will likely have less difficulties with it.
March 8th brings with it a full moon, falling in the sign of Virgo, a fellow earth sign. This full moon could bring the end of a romantic relationship, or bring one to the next level, depending on where you are in the relationship and how it has been going. You could end a creative venture or feel more inspired to create something beautiful. Something could end in relation to your children, if you have any. On March 22nd, we will have a new moon that falls in the sign of Aries, the sign before yours. You could bring something to a close in order to make room for something new to begin with this moon. Something could come up regarding a friend, where you do something new together or meet new people. This could be a good moon to join a new group or take up a new cause, especially one that helps the indigent. You may also create a new dream for your future, or do something to help further along an existing dream of yours, but you may need to do some cleaning out of some sort beforehand.
Your ruler, Mercury, enters the sign of Aries on March 2nd, and you may spend more time communicating in groups, feeling more comfortable communicating with others rather then by yourself. You may have more communications with friends, chatting with them more often about what’s going on in your life, bouncing ideas off of them, or conversing about about your friendships. You may also think more about your hopes and dreams for your future. Venus enters Taurus on the 5th, and your feminine side may get locked in the closet for a little while. You could feel less romantic, or only want to be romantic in private, away from other people. Probably not a good time for some public displays of affection. If single, this can show a relationship that’s begun in secret. The Sun joins Mercury in Aries on March 20th, and you may feel more like yourself when you’re in a group. You may not be too interested in being alone a lot, or may feel you have less energy when you’re alone. You could put more focus on your future, and this could be a good time to help others through a cause.
March brings with it a Mercury retrograde, when a planet appears to be moving backwards from our vantage point on Earth. Since Mercury is your ruler, his retrograde is usually more pronounced for Geminis. The retrograde starts March 11th in Aries, and you may feel like everything is way off and you don’t know how to get it back. Your world may feel temporarily upside-down. Any decisions you’ve made regarding your future plans may need a rethinking, and you could experience a setback with a friend. You’re likely just not hearing each other properly. On March 23rd, Mercury will retrograde into Pisces, and and you may have to tweak a long-term goal or see a career project in need of revisions. There could also be trouble communicating with elders or authority figures, like parents and bosses. The retrograde ends April 4th, so you’ll get to breathe again in April and see your world right-side up again. Those who have Mercury retrograde in their natal or progressed chart are usually exempt from the worst of it - just watch out for other people!
There will be a full moon in Virgo on March 8th, and this full moon could be a good time to end a home improvement project, or bring a close to a family dispute.

On March 22nd, a new moon will occur in the zodiac sign of Aries. This is a good moon to focus on your future and goals, where you want to go in life and what you want to be doing.

You may reconsider the path you’re on and want to change things; it’s fine to start something new if you finish it before the retrograde is over, otherwise you may want to put off starting anything new or making final decisions until it’s over. Mercury will go back into Pisces on the 23rd, and you could have issues come up related to long-distance travel, in-laws, the law, your philosophical beliefs, writing/publishing, or education.

Mercury will retrograde backwards into the water sign Pisces, and it could bring issues up related to other people’s money.

No one’s listening, you don’t know what’s happening, things have to get done over and over again to get it right, and things may be falling apart around you. Thankfully, it’s not too long before the retrograde is over, on April 4th. Just prepare yourself for some trouble when Mercury is retrograding in Pisces. If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart or progressed chart, you may be exempt from the worst, and be a lucky Pisces.
A full moon will occur on March 8th in Virgo, your opposing sign. You may see something end in a relationship, like a dispute, or see the relationship itself end. Conversely, you could take a relationship to the next level under this moon, and feel more connected to the person. You may also feel more emotional in your close relationships or when you’re with someone on-on-one, or they may be more emotional with you. A new moon will occur on March 22nd in Aries, and you may be tempted to make a new purchase, but with Mercury retrograding, it might be best to wait. You may want to make a new financial plan, but again, waiting may be better, unless you’re one of the lucky Pisces. You may feel more emotional overall during this moon, and feel your emotions more intensely. You could also feel stronger and more vital with this new moon.
