How To Prepare For April’s New Moon

April’s New Moon will take place today, on the 26th April at 10:16pm in Taurus.

The New Moon is a chance to start something new. It could be a new friendship, a new course, even a new relationship. Astrologer Yasmin Boland shares what the April New Moon means for your sign.

Wherever you have Taurus in your chart is where you will feel this New Moon.
Here is a quick guide – read your Rising Sign if you know it (and if you don’t but wish you did, you can find out here for free.

Aries or Aries Rising – there is a new start coming re cash. This new cash cycle should in fact be related to your feelings of improved self-esteem.
Taurus or Taurus Rising – it’s your annual chance to start ALL OVER again. This is a mega chance to leave the past behind, Venus retrograde upsets and all.
Gemini – it’s triggering your 12th House which is the part of your chart all to do with spirituality.
Cancer – this is your annual Wishing New Moon – careful what you’re wishing for!
Leo – there is a New Moon in your Career Zone so expect professional developments
Virgo – the New Moon in your 9th House is a great time to start travel and study projects
Libra – sex and money are both areas of your life where you can make a restart happen now
Scorpio – your love life is getting a re-boost so you bring some lighter energies in!
Sagittarius – time to think about your daily routines and over all well-being
Capricorn – time to have more fun, be creative and be more playful
Aquarius – there is a new vibe at home and regarding family matters – maybe even a move!
Pisces – time to change the way you’re thinking and communicating with at least one person

If you would like to make some wishes, here’s a quick way to do them (from my best-selling book Moonology)


• Write down your top 10 wishes for the month.
• Visualize and feel your wishes in your body. Write down an affirmation to support them.
• Write down how you intend to work towards making each wish happen.
• Meditate, and then release attachment to your wishes by saying “For the good of all or not at all!” and/or “Om Namo Narayani” which is Sanskrit for “I surrender to the Divine!”
Note that the New Moon is taking place in the first sign of the zodiac (yours!) Aries. This means we are back at the start of the lunar cycle. Over the coming 12 months, the New Moon will trigger all 12 houses on your chart, which is another way of saying that over the next 12 months, the New Moon will trigger every part of your life!
If that sounds complex, don’t worry. It’s just that this month is a really great month to commit to working with the New Moon, since it’s effectively back at the start of the zodiac. If you want to connect with the New Moon, just keep an eye on these pages and note which part of your life is getting the New Moon juju every month!


◗ Essential oil – As you begin your new journey (with the New Moon back in your sign), angelica seed will ease any doubts and increase self-awareness and positivity. Use angelica seed at this New Moon and for the coming four weeks – in your bath, in a burner or on your body.
◗ Numerological energy – The number for you this month is 1, which means this is a time to think about yourself a little more than usual. What are your dreams, aims and goals? Get centred. Be very aware that you’re at the start of your new 12-month New Moon cycle. Forget about the past and focus on what you want for yourself in the present, and what you wish to create for yourself in the future.
◗ Mantra – Use the mantra Ram this month. Chant it out loud or silently every day: while you’re in the shower, before or after meditating, or at any other time that feels right to you. It works to boost the chakras of the month.
