Welcome to the first of two April New Moons! This New Moon in Aries marks the beginning of a new zodiacal new year and I'm super excited for it. Sometimes you just vibe with a New Moon whilst others seem to pass you by or hit when your energy is low. Maybe it's because Aries is a fire sign (hey fellow fires!) or maybe because it's Spring and that fiery energy is catching. Either way, this is a powerful New Moon, and from reading what Kerry has pulled in the cards for you, you'd better be ready to ride that wave!
Find your element below to read your 'scopes.
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
Strength, Queen of Coins, Queen of Swords
Promotion, progress, a new opportunity to lead, an opening to expand and take on more. You have got the powerful card of Strength this New Moon, so your journey's challenges are going to pay off, you are going to feel you've gotten to the ~next level~ in some way.
And a pair of Queens- Swords and Coins. So this is both an intellectual and material challenge- it could very well be related to work or an important role you play, and there will be material rewards i.e. money, pride, confidence, security.
Step up. Take on more. Take the lead. Be the one to own it. Be the person with an answer to the questions. You're ready for this. All that has brought you to this point has prepared you for it.
Have faith in yourself.
Your crystal prescription: Carnelian & Gold, Black Diamond
Yes I'm prescribing three stones! Or any one of them really because ahhh what a sign from the universe that you can do whatever you put your mind to, fire signs! If this is just what you needed to hear this month then I suggest you go ahead and give yourself permission to be the boss you know you can be and use the confidence of carnelian, the strength of black diamond and the magnetism of gold to propel you forward and help you manifest the life you want.
Three of Cups, The Chariot, Temperance
You're figuring out new, healthy, happy, and sustainable ways to have fun, enjoy life and kick back. What used to be a pleasure isn't doing it like it used to. This happens. We evolve. We change.
The Three of Cups and Temperance combine to tell a tale of changing tastes and desires. You're rebalancing, finding you need a different type or level of fun and indulgence than you used to.
It's all a bit of an experiment because you're feeling your way along. You'll know it when you find it. Pleasure is important. Life is tough and we need ways to unwind and laugh and socialise with others. The Chariot puts you in the driving seat. Make this a project! Try different activities, rekindle hobbies, see new people, try new venues. Looking for new ways to have fun is fun in itself!
Your crystal prescription: Lepidolite & Garnet
Lepidolite can help you bring about positive change, release bad habits and let go of your anxieties to move forward. It releases stagnant energy and welcomes in new, uplifting energy in its place. Pair that with garnet - a stone that balances energy, bringing serenity or passion as appropriate - and you can let go of things which no longer serve you and bringing into your life that which is needed whilst maintaining a healthy equilibrium.
Page of Coins, Death, Eight of Swords
You're about to discover and use a genuine ~life lesson~ as shown by the earnest Page of Coins. You realise something and it changes everything. You act on it.
The Eight of Swords and Death combine forces to make this a powerful personal shift. in fact, an actual real-life transformation.
It's a self-limiting belief or behaviour within yourself that you come to see clearly, and critically. You realise you've been getting in your own way, and you can also get yourself out of it.
The insight is so precise and illuminating that you cannot help but act upon it. You're utterly compelled to change this thing about yourself, it doesn't even feel difficult or testing- it's an automatic response.
Set to for an inspiring New Moon phase.
Your crystal prescription: Jet & Sunstone
Jet is the transformation stone, Sunstone is a force of positivity and optimism. Sounds like a weird duo but man, if Jet is death and leaving something behind, wouldn't you want to feel a little sunshine coming through the window as you do? If you need a dose of confidence or a bright ray of sparkly self belief then Sunstone is your buddy. Plus's a great crystal for manifesting, so if your bringing in change, let sunstone be the high vibe to jet's low, deep wisdom and make that move.
Three of Swords, King of Coins, Ten of Swords
Oooo you need to sever ties with someone or something, right now, this very New Moon, don't let this drag on any longer. The Ten and Three of Swords are both tough cards about betrayal, backstabbing, gaslighting, toxic behaviour- all that ~good stuff~... you need to walk away from it.
Do yourself a favour, protect yourself, withdraw, leave.
The King of Coins shows that this is something only you can do. no one is going to protect or save you from this horrible person / role / situation. You need to save yourself, and it will really boost your sense of control and strength when you do.
Realising that you actually don't have to put up with this utter bulls*** will be empowering and liberating. You'll resolve never to get into anything like this again.
Your crystal prescription: Sapphire & Blue Kyanite
Last New Moon I prescribed blue kyanite to you, water signs, but it might be time to take things up a notch. If you tried the gentle approach with someone and it didn't work, maybe it is time to cut cord, with black kyanite & shungite.
Black kyanite is the master cord cutter, use it to slash away (not literally. Okay perhaps literally) at any energetic ties you have with someone or something that is doing you harm. Pair it with shungite, the ultimate purifier, and get rid of bad vibes in your so surroundings, attitude, energy, social circle for good.
