Are you ready for new beginnings? The New Moon takes place this week and it’s a chance to start over. This New Moon falls in the first sign of the zodiac. This is when nature, life, you, everything leaps into action.
I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for a fresh start. The Equinox on March 20th when the Sun entered the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, was clouded by Mercury’s retrograde phase.
Then, when Mercury, the communication planet, turned direct on March 28th, it was conjunct Neptune and things remained foggy, uncertain, unclear. Finally, Mercury is starting to move away from Neptune and now there’s a New Moon in Aries – good news!
There’s every reason to be delighted by this New Moon, even if it is square to Saturn. Don’t let limitations hold you back and use the fresh start energy of a New Moon in Aries to good effect. This means the following:
- Set your intentions – speak them out loud, write them down
- Take the initiative – sow seeds that can then flourish & grow
- Make a wish – traditionally, this is when you first catch sign of the crescent moon in the night sky
- Get things moving – take action, be impulsive, take a risk
- Be a dare-devil – do something bold & exciting
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; dynamic, go-getting, full of vitality and spirit so jump to it. Start something new, let the world know who you are and what you have to offer.
Aries is one of the fire signs and the fire signs are big on personality; ‘this is who I am’. It’s the ideal time to unleash your inner warrior or inner diva as you leap into life and motivate yourself ready for the new zodiac year ahead.
