April's new moon comes to us on the 5th (4:51AM) in fiery Aries, sign of action. After the floopy energy of March thanks to the Pisces Mercury retrograde, we can go into April wanting to take action and get back in control again with the Aries new moon. Aries wants to take action and have something new and exciting to focus on. It can be an excellent new moon for a new beginning of some sort, and it may be something that you've had on hold for a couple of months. Now you may feel you have the courage to take the initiative and make those first steps happen, and can be willing to go down a new road no one has gone down before. Onward!
Aries has lots of energy and excitement, so we may want to keep busy with plenty to do to use up that energy. But it likely can't be anything mundane or tedious or boring at all, otherwise we can lose patience quickly and jump off fast. We need to keep busy with things that excite us, that we're enthusiastic about, and that's positive. We likely don't want to focus on anything too serious for too long.
Since Aries is so much energy though, we need to watch for impatience, impulsiveness, and high tempers flaring. When anger erupts, don't give in to aggression and hostility. Try to use the extra energy in a positive and productive way. Have outlets for physical energy, as there may be a lot of it to use up. If we're physically busy, this can cut down on the impatience, impulsiveness, and tempers.

April's full moon comes on the 19th (7:12AM) in airy Libra. Libra full moons are usually a time to work on coming together, making compromises, focusing on improving relationships and eliminating issues with others, growing closer with the people we care about and have positive connections to, and let go of the people we don't have healthy connections with. We need more peace and harmony, more balance and serenity.
This is the second full moon in a row in the sign of Libra - March's full moon (March 20th) also occurred in Libra. This means that what came to pass or arose with the full moon in March can tie into what comes to pass or arises with the full moon in April, and there can be a continuation of themes and situations. It may be that whatever comes about or is the focus for the March full moon doesn't reach full culmination of a final resolution until the April full moon.
The April full moon in Libra is also at a special degree, 29 degrees. 29 degrees is the last degree of any sign is called the anaretic degree, and is a point of crisis energy. So this full moon really does have strong ending and culmination energy with it, and we may feel we frantically need to get things done. Try to stay in control of your energy instead of going all wonky. That just throws you out of balance, which greatly disrupts Libra! Stay calm, stay focused.
