New Moon in Pisces: Chaitra New Moon

The April New Moon will be on Thursday, Apr 7, @ 24 deg Pisces. This marks the beginning of the Hindu Lunar Month of Chaitra, named for Chitra the nakshatra (lunar sign) of the Full Moon. Except that this year, the full Moon will fall in the following nakshatra, Swati. The energy of the month takes on the qualities of the full Moon's lunar sign. Swati is associated with The Wind, therefore a lot of Movement, and Unstable.
The New Moon is conjunct Uranus. Any planet conjunct the New Moon also lends its energy pattern to the month. Uranus is the planet of Freedom, Rebellion, and Unusual Unexpected Events. Therefore, we can expect some surprises in the coming 4 weeks.
The Chaitra New Moon is the Vedic New Year. There are a number of "New Years" in the Hindu calendar, used for various purposes. The Chaitra New Year is used to determine Mundane Events for the coming year, i.e., events connected with nations, leaders, trade, global interactions, etc. Since this lunation is conjunct Uranus, the coming 12 months will be noted for Rebellion, and will be full of Unusual and Disruptive events.
