This New Moon carries with it the spirit of newness; the sense of glowing originality. We have had other New Moons and witnessed the vestiges of spring slowly creep across the landscape. So what makes this one so new, so fresh, so exciting? Because this New Moon arrives during a Venus retrograde.
Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love, influences our relationships, emotions, and desires. She is also the goddess of victory, beauty, fertility and satisfying carnal appetites, favors and desires. During retrograde, it is best to err on the side of caution when entering into or trying to maintain intimate relationships. It is generally during a Venus retrograde that people find themselves reacting, responding, or otherwise behaving in a way they may come to regret later.
As we move into this time of the New Moon, begin to establish your springtime boundaries. Whether these boundaries are about the amount of time you spend at work, play or relaxing, or about building up or taking apart relationship(s), structures or habits, boundaries help guide you towards the goals and ideals you want in your life. It provides the basis for you to mold and model how you want to live, learn and grow; now, and into the future.
