The Moon is void-of-course/voc* until 5 p.m ET when the Moon enters Aries.

Pluto goes retrograde at 11:56 p.m., which can indicate a return to deep inner work. When retrograde, Pluto calls into question what you do or do not need.
Pluto retrograde is an excellent time to evaluate unconscious habits that get you into situations or routines that you’d like to change. Pluto retrograde offers an opportunity to take greater control of your life through recognition of defensive behavior and unproductive patterns.
Although you won’t solve it all today, this is an excellent time to make a contract with yourself that you will meet these challenges head-on. There may be a call or memory from the past that triggers a theme for the next several months.
In spite of the potential heaviness of Pluto’s turn from our perspective, you may feel optimistic and encounter people with similar enthusiasm for projects and pleasure.
Pluto retrograde runs from April 16-September 25, 2015 ET.
