New Moon April 2022 Astrology

The new moon on Friday, April 1, 2022, at 12°30′ Aries sits between Mercury and Chiron. There are no other major aspects to the new moon. And there is only one fixed star within the orb of the new moon. It is a Saturn-natured star in the constellation of Cetus the Whale.

New Moon April 2022 Horoscope

New Moon April 2022 [Solar Fire]

New Moon Meaning

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

New Moon Aspects

New Moon conjunct Mercury (1°46′) places emphasis on your thinking and communications, and short distance travel. It brings mental alertness, quick thinking, adaptability, and curiosity. Expect an increase in personal interaction in your neighborhood, with siblings, schools, and over the internet.

So this will be a busy moon phase with lots of appointments, correspondence, meetings, social activity, new information to process, and decisions to make. This should be a good new moon for sharing ideas, making plans, buying and selling, negotiating, and meeting new people.


New Moon conjunct Chiron (0°47′) makes wounding and healing a major theme of this new moon. Chiron represents the deepest wound in your soul and also your ability to heal yourself and others through traditional medicine as well as more alternative healing methods.

In Greek mythology, Chiron was the wisest of the Centaurs who taught astrology and herbal medicine. So Chiron is associated with wisdom and proficiency in botany, music, astronomy, divination, and medicine. In Christian Astrology, Chiron represents Christ.

New moon April 2022 conjunct Chiron exposes your most painful wounds, physical and emotional. You will feel pain from the wounds you have suffered but also guilt from the pain you have inflicted on others. Chiron may also manifest a new wound through illness, accident, or loss.

Increased awareness of these wounds can make you more sensitive to the pain. You may even become scared to express yourself but it is important that you do not keep the pain buried inside. Increased empathy and understanding means the wounds of your loved ones will also become more apparent and affect you more deeply.

Childhood wounds associated with your parents may resurface. Grief, fear, rejection, alienation, or victimization are possible. You may feel that you are damaged or that fate has been particularly cruel to you. This could lead to a loss of confidence, depression, and self-pity.

On the other hand, you may react more aggressively to your pain and start hurting yourself and others. But new moon April 2022 is a time for nurturing and healing. Chiron heals through medicine, astrology, Tarot, and your hands and words. In its highest manifestation, Chiron heals through thoughts alone.

Mercury conjunct Chiron (2°34′) does make it easier to heal through thoughts, words, hands, and by listening. But it could also make it easier to inflict pain through nasty words and even thought projection.

This aspect could highlight painful relationships with siblings, children and neighbors. It could also expose painful memories about early school experiences, communication problems, and even accidents and injuries associated with local travel.

The Fixed Stars

New Moon April 2022 is in the Sign of Aries. But as the star map below shows, it is actually the Constellation of Pisces. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

New Moon April 2022 Astrology

New Moon April 2022 [Stellarium]

As shown in the list below, there is only one named star within one-degree orn of the new moon. It is Eta Ceti, Deneb Algenubi, named Dheneb in the image above.

  • 09♈27 – Gamma Pegasi, Algenib
  • 09♈44 – Mercury
  • 09♈59 – Mu Cephei, Erakis
  • 11♈30 – New Moon April 2022
  • 12♈04 – Eta Ceti, Deneb Algenubi
  • 12♈18 – Chiron
  • 13♈03 – Alpha Cephei, Alderamin

The Whale

Constellation Cetus the Whale (or Sea Monster) is like Saturn. It is said to cause laziness and idleness, but to confer an emotional and charitable nature, with the ability to command, especially in war. Makes one amiable, prudent, happy by sea and land, and helps to recover lost goods. According to Ptolemy, Cetus  is like Saturn. [1]

The name Deneb Algenubi comes from the Arabic ذنب القيطس الجنوبي – al-dhanab al-qayṭas al-janūbī, meaning the southern tail of the sea monster.

Other stars in this constellation express their Saturn nature through caution, inhibition, loss, misfortune, worry, isolation, depression, self-destruction, sickness, accidents, disgrace, inhibition, restraint, and crop failure. But obstacles and tests of endurance like these often lead to mental and emotional toughness and great resilience.

The King

Constellation Cepheus the King gives authority and a sober mind, sometimes making its natives judges or arbitrators, but exposes to cruel and severe trials. According to Ptolemy, Cepheus is like Saturn and Jupiter. [1]

New Moon April 2022 Summary

The Sun, Moon, and Mercury with Chiron make it easier to discuss painful memories and experiences with your friends and relatives. This can lead to personal healing and also the healing of broken relationships.

The influence of the April 1 new moon lasts for four weeks up to the April 30 solar eclipse. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from April 1 to the April 16 full moon.

  1. Perhaps it is due to my natal Chiron being in hypersensitive Pisces, opposite, the mundane evils of the underworld Pluto in Virgo, but I just feel it may help to not underestimate the power of the chirotic soul wounding, it is a very deep and disturbing sensation when you feel it you really feel it, it is probably described as a very deep aching deep within that only I can know or feel, thus only I can help heal. And yes, like the Christ symbolism, the wounding is often caused by being “hung out to dry” harshly rejected & hung out to dry, by the very people one is here to help, it is a long slow torture or feeling crucified by the blessings & pitfalls of our own nature, or our personal “cross to bare” until we heal it and make good of the blessing that we were given life to be and do, share both the misery & joy with others, listen to understand others, and in turn, help them to help/heal themselves. Which in today’s world where the constant rhetoric is that we cannot heal ourselves we cannot even trust ourselves to know what is wrong or what treatment we ourselves need, or not. May prove to be quite “inflaming” of that wound, which is both self inflicted and an injury born of others. It is important to remember that we all make mistakes, ignorance is forgivable, but if we know or profess to know what we are saying and doing and how, and people trust us to be true to our word, then we really cannot claim ignorance, that is simply ignoring what we dont want to see or know, not something we were trained not to see or know, or perhaps a new experience we had not ever come across before.

    • Hey Debbie,
      Sounds like you’ve gone through many years of being taken for granted and or an easy target.
      Hard fact is,there are people who take advantage of the ‘sensitives’ and attack those who are ingrained
      and born good natured and pure of heart.

      You have blockages in your lower chakras,hence holding onto alot of emotions and why your heart and soul feels pained.

      I’d highly recommend getting into fasting,if you don’t already do this.
      Any blockages in the colon will create a major (electrical)disturbance through the physical and the mental body.

      In short,i just came off a 3day fast yesterday,on the 2nd day,i had a seering hot pain near the bottom of my spine and hard mass shot out(not to gross you out).

      There after,i felt light as a feather,so much mental clarity and junk thoughts gone.

      A few hours later,it felt like my hips expanded,some pain in hips,as well as lower back pain.

      I’ve since been doing yoga exercises to loosen up and the feelings are amazing.

      And no kidding,like i’ve come out of a fog/an illusion and seeing as i did as a child.

      At times i feel ‘stoned’,just happy with feelings.: )

      Here’s a link in regards to the hips and emotions.

      Here’s also one book recommendation for now:

      Forgiveness and other acts of Love by Stephanie Dowrick.

      Lastly,stay away from mean spirited negative types,as we and others like yourself,are targets and they are nothing more than energy vampires.

      That said,once you remove the blockages,your energy system will become back online,flowing freely,and those types won’t come near you nor be able to tap into your energy source.

      I do commiserate with you and others,as i did suffer for many years.

      Best wishes and healing.

      Slow and steady wins the race.

  2. This is almost conjunct my descendant and just finished the last pass of Chiron on my descendant. I wonder what this will have in store! The Chiron transit was interesting and it definitely had me shedding the past but all in all not a tough transit.

  3. I am an amateur astrologer and other mystical and whole health disciplines, and really love your work. I know there are lots of haters and downer comments, so wanted to send some support! Thank you for your insights and technical interpretations of the fixed and smaller stars that are so often overlooked. From Canada.

  4. What is happening anywhere else in the world,is of no concern.

    Healing starts at home,attention to our inner wounds.

    Wounds from ancestors baring the front of wars,
    hence the roll on effect,affecting generations of dysfunctional upbringing.

    Hence,we all need to focus on healing ourselves first,
    in order to create a new roll on effect.

    • We all need to find a way out from this system,
      or at least find a way,to not only make life easier
      on ourselves but to find some peace and go within and reset.

      A fast paced society more than ever.

      How many people eat right?
      How many people sit and savior there food,then rest and let it digest?
      How many people in turn,are emotional eating?

      3 blind mice.

      Who actually does the eating if mindful or unmindful?

      We are all born with a mechanism,called free will.

      When we ‘fail’ to exercise free reign over free will,
      we are actually living an unconscious life in an illusion.

      I have given up addictions spanning 41yrs emotionally numbing myself.

      BUT unbeknowing,i was still suffering from unconscious eating there after.

      Who doesn’t like to eat right?

      Many notables have fasted in the past,
      and for good reason.

      Food is more addictive than any drug and we need it to survive.

      To master ourselves,we need to be conscious of what we eat.

      To fast,and fast again,until we clear decades of blockages from the colon.

      And you will know it and feel it,when you start to become unblocked.

      There after,consciously eat,rest and digest.

      Eat less,little is more.

      There is zero nutrition in meat and non plant food.

      Eat to live,
      not live to eat.

      • Ps.I would like to add too.

        When it comes to emotional wounds and emotional clearing,

        you will feel those emotional wounds come up whilst fasting.

        Breathe in and don’t deviate.

        Be aware,just breathe,feel and they will lesson in intensity and pass.

        The body is far more intelligent than we’re aware of.

        The healing that takes place naturally,

        is nothing short of amazing and miraculous.

        Imagine if the whole of humanity did this.

        End of duality and suffering.

  5. Thank you Jamie! Very detailed and accurate description. I thing to be corrected though in the Summary section (simple editing mistake) : the Solar eclipse falls on April 30th, and not April 3rd 😉

  6. This new moon is within one degree of my South Node. … considering how things have been going since my birthday on 12/23.. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried.. I don’t know what to say, except- anyone have any advice for such a set of transits?

    • KC 🙋…In addition to all that steller advice from nomadic3spirit ;), I can add that this New Moon will be a wonderful opportunity to manifest your truth. With Merc conjuncting Chiron as well, it’s a blessed time to clear any pastlife blockages of communication, to liberate and heal and to find your own true balance.
      I have the opposite aspect natally, my NN will be in conjunction with this New Moon. Perhaps we are experiencing much of the same energies 😉
      Power to truth, my friend 🔥🌛💛🔥
      Be kind to yourself… .

  7. I’m watching and reflecting on this new moon with interest. The sun, moon, Chiron, and Mercury, are conjunct my natal moon at this time.
    I have been reflecting for over a year now on the past years of Chiron arriving in my first house in 2010, and the intense life changes faced. I faced temporary blindness twice, not knowing it was temporary, then cancer, many actual and symbolic losses of people, possessions, a home, now chronic physical conditions. As I reflect on these events I have also noticed the powerful ability to bounce back, overtime shift disempowered themes, reinvent my life step by step, and grow more and more into open-heartedness: always a work in progress. Working through these last 12 years and continually coming back to practicing mindfulness and compassion has been a powerful and challenging healing process: physically, emotionally and spiritually.
    There have been many blessings along the way. The blessings don’t dismiss or negate the difficulties or heartbreak along the way. I’ve just learned to see things as Grace moving through me somehow. None of us is immune to life’s events, however they manifest.
    When studying Chiron recently, I discovered that Chiron was discovered on the day, and almost conjunct my solar return that year. This felt deeply significant to me.
    The current long phase of Chiron conjunct natal moon coincides with a lot of healing work including, personally, in family, and my vocation. Soon Chiron will move into my second house and this current new moon feels like a precursor to endings and new starts.
    Jamie I’m grateful for your astrology insights. I’m not an astrologer by any means, just keenly interested in the synchronicity of life and cosmology, the opportunity that interpretation provides as a learning and growth tool, and all that as an opportunity to live more consciously.
    So I look forward to this new moon energy with great curiosity.

  8. Lovely Nomadic3Spirit,
    I want to thank you on behalf of myself, and a ton of others, for your beautiful words and prose throughout these challenging months , you write with such depth and humour and often with such a clear understanding of our way forward through the quagmire.Your relationship with your psycho neighbour really made me laugh on one of my worse days !
    It seems that Life is here to flatten us until we get up and forge our way through the fences. Wishing you strength and endurance, and let us all know when your book is finished, I will definitely want to read it. Alice

  9. Words have utmost power- as they’re directly from our minds; directing & shaping our reality. Heal the mind & your reality will follow (a few words of wisdom: “The world is as YOU see it.”– Sw.M./emphasis mine).
    So, let’s be careful of how we use our words, what is attached to them, and go to the source of where these words- thoughts-ideas-attitudes- poses stem from: the creations of our mind. The mind can be your enemy…or your friend. Heal it (still it, calm it) and all gets healed….suddenly or eventually.

  10. The night before last,
    i dreamnt i was out of this illusion,
    but i was awake!

    Yesterday,i lost?2 hours during meditation,
    where by i reached glimpsing points of stillpoint,
    and can only describe happily just being.

    Then this morning i’ve awoke from a dream,
    to the burning bush on my mind.


    “We look and search for the truth and the intimate relationship and most of the time we fail to satisfy our heart because we are looking with our own effort. We are not seeking help from the one who can lead us to success.

    Moses was a great example of the person who despite all his circumstances he never grumbled or went astray. Instead he kept faith in all those years. That is why God looked upon him and used him to lead others to salvation.

    Great mystery requires great faith and endurance but as much as we endure, God gives much more than we even imagine. The joy of the heart and the peace of knowing He is in control cannot compare with anything in this world.

    Be persistent in knowing God and have an intimate relationship with Him and then you will discover the great mystery for yourself. May the Lord grant us all the power of humility and endurance so we can walk in His way.”
