New Moons are the perfect opportunity to initiate new ideas and intentions into the world! We are reminded during this time that when we take action to nourish our mind and body, we create fertile ground for new seeds to grow. The energy of a new moon is Yang centered; it is a time of action, movement, and initiation to aid in the process of manifestation.
It’s a new astrological year, and this Aries New Moon offers us an opportunity to take big risks and action toward our destiny. Mercury, Jupiter, and Chiron will join the Sun and Moon in Aries, making this a BOLD Spring Equinox. Aries energy is inspiring, dynamic, and full of energy!
Aries is masculine, cardinal fire, and ruled by Mars -the planet of action and passion.
Whenever we work with Aries energy, we are asked to put ourselves first and forward. There is nothing shy or passive about Aries. Aries wants independence and an opportunity to lead and inspire. Let this New Moon spark your desire to step forward and center toward freedom and expansion.
Healing Old Wounds
Since this New Moon follows after the Spring Equinox, also known as the sun’s rebirth, we are initiated into a new season of personal power and leadership. Chiron, the wounded healer, is also in the sign of Aries, which can trigger deep wounds of self-sabotage or insecurity in one’s own leadership potential. With the support of the Sun and Moon, also in the sign of Aries, let this energy spiritual transform you into a more confident and self-assured being. If there is a creative project, new idea, or even a spark of enthusiasm that you receive during this new moon, take this moment to dive head first into new opportunities, lead courageously, and most importantly, have fun!
Aries rules the head and the physical body, so take this time to dance, move, work out, and release stagnant energy to become more confident in your actions. Take inventory of the areas within your life where you are holding back from your power or giving other people power over you. Aries is an unstoppable force that meets any challenge with tenacity and resilience.
Ways to Work With New Moon Energy
Aries rules the Root Chakra for security and the Solar Plexus for confidence. Surround yourself with red colors or even yellow for power and stamina.
Aries energy is very fiery and heated, so cooling herbs such as Chrysanthemum, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, and Fever Grass can benefit the body. A few crystals supporting this Aries New Moon energy are – Bloodstone, Black Tourmaline, Red Jasper, and Tiger’s Eye.
Movement will be the theme for this new moon! Go for a walk, jog, take a dance class, or even a fitness class. Do something that can release energy and get you more attuned to your physical body and willpower.
Happy New Moon!
