Charge forward toward a new life with the magick of the Aries New Moon!
The energy of the New Moon is a potent time for new beginnings. The New Moon in Aries occurs during the turning of the astrological wheel of the year, making this is a particularly powerful time to start a new project, lifestyle, business, or course of study.
Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, and its element is Fire. Aries is the energy of creation, birth, youth, and natural exuberance. On a physical level, Aries rules our head, which also metaphorically represents forward thinking, as well as unabashed forward movement.
Of course, with new beginnings come endings, and a true fresh start cannot occur unless we’re willing to take stock of everything that we’ve amassed thus far – from material possessions; tasks, talents, and abilities; and emotional burdens. For example, if you’re having a hard time jumping on the Marie Kondo train (ahem, is it just me?), tap into the energy of the Aries New Moon for the motivation and the bravery to release all of the stuff that’s been weighing you down!
The New Moon in Aries is a universal reminder that we can begin again, anytime. You can channel the energy of Aries into any endeavour by flowing through the following steps:
Evaluate or Reevaluate
What have you accomplished thus far? What has worked, and what hasn’t? If you continue in this direction, will you achieve your goal, or is it time to reroute? Have your goals changed, and if so, in what way?
What do you need to release to move forward? This could be anything, from:
- Limiting beliefs
- Clothes that don’t fit
- Services or product offerings
- Clients and/or staff
What do you need to attain in order to move forward? What action steps do you need to take in order to get these things? Who are your allies?
Affirm or Reaffirm
Now that you know where you’re at, it’s time to affirm, or reaffirm your morals, visions, and goals. You may consider rewriting the “About” section of your website (personal or company), rewriting your bio, or updating your vision board. Write it down. Say it out loud. There is power in words.
Also, share it with the relevant people in your life! If you want to make a major life change, let your spouse or partner in on your goals so that they can be a source of support and accountability. Have you updated your company’s vision? Be sure to let your staff and clients know!
Now is the time to put the pedal to the metal. Aries people are courageous leaders, and while they are often criticized for their “ready, shoot, aim!” approach to life, they are also natural sources of optimism and fiery determination. Anybody can tap into this energy with intention, and there’s no better time to do so than now, and in the days leading up to the Full Moon.
You know what you need to do. So, do it!
Imagine the ram, the animal which represents Aries, charging forward at full-force. Once its decided to start, there’s no stopping it, for better or for worse! Harness the energy of Aries to help you move forward in a positive direction, but be careful not to let this energy fan the flames of irrationality or turn bitterness into motivation for negative action.
Happy Aries New Moon, Lightworkers!
