The Aries New Moon arrives Friday morning at 1:50am Pacific Time. This Moon marks the real start of the astrological New Year, providing us with fresh energy and courage. Forming a wide square to a Saturn-Pluto-South Node conjunction, we’re learning to let go of the past while embracing the unknown. And with Neptune conjunct Mercury, we’re also dissolving conceptual mind, letting ourselves dream and play. Aries, after all, is the child of the zodiac.

Saturn and Pluto’s dance with the South Node is encouraging us to dislodge Capricorn’s should’s and supposed-to’s. Rather than focusing on achievement, we can allow ourselves to stare at the wall, write poetry, and hike through the flowers. We’re defying whatever voices tell us we must achieve at the expense our own hearts, pleasure, and emotional well-being.
Of course, the North Node remains in Cancer for another fifteen months. Ignited by this New Moon, it continues to ask: How can we connect more deeply? What will fill our hearts with deeper meaning and fulfillment?
At the same time, we may be questioning what outmoded commitments and obligations are holding us back that we now need to break. However, this period is not about running away. Aries the Ram is confrontational, and we’re learning to face each other—to confront our feelings so we can work through the messier, illogical aspects of our lives and relationships.
We don’t need everything to make sense. Nor do we need to cut and run if they don’t. We can actually stay with ourselves and each other in the midst of our confusion. We can find the wisdom and lessons that arise when we avoid bolting.
