This Aries New Moon is not just any New Moon, but the first of two back-to-back fiery and fearless New Moons in Aries. This is a rare occurrence, that unleashes a cosmic blast of energy and has the potential to create truly epic transformation.
Intentions set during this time have the power to skyrocket and manifest beyond our wildest dreams.
Unlike regular new moons—in which the energy is heightened for a few days—the highly charged, intense, life-altering energy of this phase will be felt consistently throughout the next month. Regardless of zodiac sign, everyone will be affected, however Aries Sun, Moon or Rising will be impacted most.
During the first Aries New Moon in this sequence, we are reminded of the power our thoughts and intentions possess in shaping our reality. By visualizing our goals as already achieved, we begin the process of drawing in the necessary opportunities and resources to transform them into reality.
As the upcoming Solar Eclipse on April 19/20 marks the second New Moon in Aries, we will start to witness the progress of the intentions we set during the first Aries New Moon. We can have faith in our ability to co-create with divine energy, and see how the Universe is guiding us. We will witness signs, symbols, and synchronicities bringing about the necessary changes and opportunities to manifest our intentions.
Aries, the cosmic trailblazer, represents the spirit of new beginnings, and a New Moon marks a time of spiritual rebirth. With the New Moon aligning with the start of the astrological year, alongside the Equinox, the Universe is extending a divine invitation for us to take charge of our destiny.
The collective alignment of these cosmic forces is no coincidence, it carries immense significance and represents a unique opportunity for life-altering change, making it one of the most powerful and transformative periods of the year.
This is a time to embody the fearless and adventurous spirit of the ram, to break free from the limitations of the past, and to move forward with courage and conviction.
It’s a bold and daring chance to step outside of our comfort zones and embrace the unknown. Whether it’s pursuing our passions, making tough decisions, or standing up for ourselves, the Aries New Moon encourages us to harness our inner strength and courage and conquer any obstacles in our path.
Under the influence of the red-hot energy of Mars, the God of War, Aries brings forth an increase in passion and possibly even anger, so emotional and dramatic outbursts may occur. This may create intense situations with potentially volatile, aggressive, or impulsive communication.
Therefore, it’s crucial to remain calm and aware of our emotions at all times to avoid unnecessary conflicts. Lunar phases often hold hidden teachings that are ultimately for our benefit, even if they don’t appear that way at first glance. We can trust that we’re gaining valuable insights into ourselves and our closest relationships, even when it seems like everything is working against us.
The upcoming New Moon may uncover issues related to low self-esteem, which could impact even those who consider themselves confident and self-assured. Consequently, the collective energy may reflect a desire for external support, guidance, and encouragement instead of seeking these qualities within ourselves.
The current period presents an excellent opportunity for introspection and self-reflection. We can reflect on areas in our lives where we have been neglecting ourselves, and why we may not be making choices that lead us towards a fulfilling life.
It is possible that we have been ignoring the signs indicating the need for significant change. We may have been making endless excuses for why we cannot take action or rationalizing other people’s behavior to avoid disrupting our own or other people’s lives. However, in doing so, we end up settling for half-lived experiences and half-hearted relationships. Often, we settle because we fear the unknown or because we lack the courage to pursue our dreams. We may feel like we are not worthy of something better or that we don’t deserve it, so we may settle for a relationship that is convenient or comfortable but lacks passion, intimacy, and genuine connection.
We often delay taking action by saying, “not now, maybe later,” but this only prolongs our discomfort and confusion. We may hold onto harmful thought patterns, people, jobs, and belief systems, ignoring the toll they take on us.
Certain relationships lift and inspire us, and feel energetically safe and loving, while others bring us down, are deflating, and leave us feeling unloved, unvalued, and unworthy. While it is important that we aren’t measuring our self-worth through other people’s opinions or actions, it is also vital to ensure we are not surrounded by people who have little regard for our suffering or pain.
We have gone through many drastic energy shifts lately, which have taken us through personal transformation and caused us to vibrate on an entirely different frequency. This New Moon brings another major awakening, in which we will see everything around us as though we are perceiving it for the first time. This can feel terrifying, as we may suddenly question how we have managed to maintain certain relationships or continue in certain jobs or living arrangements for so long.
As we go through this deep inner reflection, we will receive a clear vision of what we want in our life. This could mean that we will need to commit to a dramatic detox, so that anything that is not aligned with where we want to be, or who we want around us, will need to be released.
This Aries moon is giving us the courage to speak our truth, loudly and clearly, and we will intuitively know what we want and where we are heading. We will be looking back and understanding why we have been through certain challenges, what they have taught us, and how they have led us to where we are now.
This is the time to get rid of any habits, patterns, thoughts, obsessions, commitments, dynamics, or material items that have been weighing us down and keeping us stuck in a reality that it neither healthy or serving us. Anything that no longer resonates with who we are and how we want to be living will start to dissipate before our eyes.
We will be cutting ourselves free from the low-frequency entities that we have become attached to and burning through old paradigms, as well as setting alight a crumbling bridge or two in the process. We will notice we have the desire to remove ourselves from dynamics that cause friction, and where the energy feels tense, negative, and depleting —and instead, we’ll find we are gravitating toward those with whom we feel peaceful and calm.
To prioritize our spiritual and emotional health, we must summon our inner strength, courage, and determination to make the hard decision to make changes or move forward. It won’t be easy, but it’s necessary for our well-being and happiness.
Many of us are bound by responsibilities, and have obligations to people that we cannot distance or separate ourselves from or abandon, and that’s understandable. The energy of the moon reminds us to act with tenderness, empathy, and kindness. It is not about deserting anyone or anything, but rather about recognizing we are invaluable entities, with the ability to manifest our full potential and live our best lives.
We are reminded that anything is possible at this potent primordial conjunction of moon and sun. With this cosmic power, we are unstoppable in our quest for growth, transformation, and success.
The new moon in Aries is a symbol of new beginnings, radical transformation, and powerful energy. It’s a time to reset, shed limiting beliefs, take risks, and embrace new possibilities.
This New Moon may initially feel soothing, but it has the power to disrupt our lives temporarily and offer a dramatically different perspective. It will help us understand what and who we prioritize in our lives and how we want our lives to unfold. Even though the moon’s energy may destabilize us for a short period, as with everything moon related, it serves our highest good and helps us evolve on a personal level.
During intensive energy shift, it is highly recommended to regularly cleanse our energy field at the beginning and end of each day by drinking plenty of water, taking salt water baths, meditating, or spending time outdoors in nature, and taking time out alone to reconnect with oneself.
