The Sun and Moon conjoin in Pisces right around dawn, marking the moment of the New Moon. New dynamics are indeed introduced today. Mars enters Capricorn during the first portion of the day, which the red planet will occupy until May 15th.
Mars will share Capricorn with both Saturn and Pluto, and the three together make a harsh combination. The particular flavor of this configuration is introduced quite clearly today. The Moon enters Mars-ruled Aries mid-day, and then spends the night squaring Mars and then Saturn in Capricorn. The short time, late night, while the Moon is between Mars and Saturn is extremely inauspicious, and should be avoided.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
