All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
The influence of the April 26 new moon lasts for four weeks up to the May 25 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from April 26 to the May 10 full moon.
New Moon April 2017 Astrology
The April 26 new moon at 6°27′ Taurus makes no planetary aspect at all. There are two fixed stars just ahead of the new moon that have a sinister reputation. There is also a very strong planetary alignment at the time of the new moon which can transform demons into angels.
Fixed star Hamal at 7°53′ and fixed star Schedir at 8°00′ Taurus are both associated with strong, protective leaders. A lust for power can make them cruel and violent dictators. Although headstrong and aggressive, they slowly work their way to the top using cunning and patience. Inside a generous and loving family man can lie a killer instinct and demonic powers. Evil associates, egomania, overindulgence and love affairs can lead to trouble, loss and disgrace.
New Moon April 2017 Aspects
The influence of the fixed stars is amplified by the new moon and felt by everyone. Even if these stars are not active in your birth chart, everyone has their inner demons or little dictator to contend with. In a similar manner, it does not matter that the following aspects do not link directly to the new moon. We all feel them to some degree just as we all feel the new moon to some degree.
Mercury conjunct Uranus gives flashes of insight and higher awareness of your inner demons. This electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition make it easier to grasp concepts and abstract ideas. The things you discover will surprise you and unexpected news may come your way.
Mercury trine Saturn gives disciplined thinking, good concentration and attention to detail. It makes the abstract concepts from Uranus more tangible and easy to apply in real life. Saturn will also tone down the shocking nature of some Uranus insights. This is a good new moon for making important decisions and for serious discussions, negotiations and business dealings.
Saturn trine Uranus represents a transition phase in life. This is the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic as it sometimes can. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically. This is also a good time for experimentation and creative self-expression.
New Moon April 2017 Summary

Revealing your inner demons will be very liberating. Shining light on such dark and sinister energies makes them weaker. Discovering and accepting your dark side can lead to a rapid and positive transformation. This reduction in negative karma will relieve you of guilt, shame, self loathing and fear.
