This cycle begins with the Sun and new Moon at 07° Aries 37′ and comes to fruition with the full Moon at 21° Libra 33′. This is the first New Moon since the Vernal Equinox on the 20th of March.
The title of this post, The Pink Moon, refers to the April full moon as identified by the Algonquin tribes. The MoonConnection (link below) says about this Moon:
Flowers begin to appear, including the widespread grass pink or wild ground phlox. Other variations indicate more signs of full spring, such as Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, and Fish Moon (common among coastal tribes).

Two U.S natal charts are again being considered--one with Scorpio rising and one with Sagittarius rising (new Moon and full Moon are linked here). In the natal chart with Scorpio rising the Sun is positioned in the 9th house, ruled by Jupiter; Sagittarius rising places the Sun in the 7th house, ruled by Venus. Both placements include the Moon as ruler because the Sun is in Cancer. In the Sagittarian chart the Moon's placement is in the 3rd house, conjunct the cusp; in the chart with Scorpio rising the Moon is in the 4th house, her home.
Venus turned retrograde on the 4th of March at 13° Aries and will turn direct on the 15th of April at 27° Pisces. Saturn turns retrograde on the 6th of April at approximately 28° Sagittarius, then turns direct on the 26th of August at 21° Sagittarius. Pluto turns retrograde on the 21st of April and will remain retrograde until September 29th, where it turns direct at 16° Capricorn 51′.
Most notably, Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th of April and turns direct on the 4th of May at 4° Taurus 50′ During the time when Mercury is retrograde, communications can be garbled, old issues may be revisited, and a general fugue state experienced.
