Do you desperately need a ray of sunshine to penetrate your life with positivity? You’re in luck then because the celestial bodies above are bringing positive, communicative, and connection-inducing vibrations this week that can help anyone get out of any funk.

While we only have one major transit this week, there are plenty of transits that might be considered more minor but equally as pleasant, bringing positivity into our lives when many of us need it the most.

Starting on April 5th, the Aquarius Moon is in a harmonious angle to communication Mercury – currently in the sign of Aries. This transit encourages clear thinking, increased intellect, and focused communication, making it easier for you to work on mental tasks and converse with those around you.

Another wonderful transit comes on April 7th, when that same Aquarius Moon is conjunct Jupiter, which is also in the sign of Aquarius right now.

This transit not only increases confidence and self-worth, but futuristic Aquarius and expansive Jupiter are coming together to bring abundance and surprises that might positively affect your future.

And on Sunday, April 11th, we have a New Moon in the fiery sign of Aries – the astrology season we’re currently dancing through.

New Moons are all about new beginnings, mirroring Aries’ clean-slate energy – whose sign marks the beginning of a new astrological season.

This is one of the most powerful times of the year to think about what you want to start manifesting in your life, so don’t forget to make that New Moon list full of celestial wishes and your deepest desires.

This Week Brings Enhanced Cognition, Deeper Connections, & A Chance to Start Over

The smaller, more personal transits coming our way this week provide a framework of positivity that will help carry us into the future months – so long as we take advantage of these good vibrations. Many of the transits happening are lunar, which sets the emotional tone for the public, meaning that we will all share at least a similar energy, allowing for deeper, more meaningful connections.

The New Moon, however, is where the magic really happens.

The New Moon is the time of the month to make our New Moon wishes, manifest our desires, and build that foundation of our own to help create the exact future we want to experience. Spend the week with those good, healing vibrations, imagining what it is that you truly want to bring into existence.

And on Sunday, practice a New Moon ritual, complete with sunstone to connect to that Aries energy, and be sure to make your New Moon list!
