This is the first New Moon of the astrological year, so it's a supercharged one. Think of it as the New Year's Eve/Day of the Zodiac. It's time to put forth fiery action, to step into leadership, and plant seeds for new beginnings.
Like the Spring season in the Northern Hemisphere awakens the breaking ground for the buds to push through, so does our consciousness awaken to the potential of this new spark of the Aries New Moon.
Think about the seeds that you plant in Winter that turn into blossoming seedlings in the Spring. That seed had to break out of its shell and reach through the darkness to find the sustenance of the sunlight. This same newness, anticipation, and potentiality is what we are entering.
Aries is an emboldened fire sign demanding action. This is a perfect time to draw on this energy to set intentions for the year ahead. In an Aries New Moon, we fire up our passions, we reignite the creative spark, and we burn bright with motivation. Action oriented Aries will move fast, ever moving forward. The fire can burn the dead brush to clear the path forward and also reactively burn out of control.
Numinous New Moon
"Shimmering in the dim star light.
Incomplete, unfinished, not yet set in place." - Krysta S. Roy
At the New Moon, we take the opportunity to re-center, reflect, and re-member. Paying attention to what life is asking of us. We use the darkness to tap into deep insight.
To the ancients the darkness of the new moon represented death and destruction, things were diminished and depressed. This sits in contrast to the Greeks who valued the power of the dark moon as also a bringer of fertility, creativity, and deep insight. Our modern society tends to favor the light as paramount, neglecting the gifts that come with the dark night vision of the waning moon (Harding, 2017).
The New Moon is a time of inward curiosity. A time to pay attention and observe. The space of the New Moon offers up clarity with intention to reset and reconnect in the dark of the moon.
The Lunar cycle begins with the New Moon. Think of it as hitting a little mini reset button for the next 28 days. New Moon is a time of new beginnings, setting intentions, and manifestations.
We take the time to sit, get comfortable in the discomfort of the darkness. We allow our eyes to adjust to the night vision we need to gain clarity which only the dark can bring. We are gifted with a clean slate. The veil between the manifest and imagined has lifted. It’s the pause between destruction and creation. It’s a great time to tune into what your inner thoughts, dreams, and intuitions are.
How can you show up with passion in your life?
Where can you be more self-sufficient?
Who are the people you can turn to in support of this energy?
How can you channel the fire and boldness of Aries to better your community?
What can you do to be courageous and not competitive?
New Moon in Aries on Sunday/Monday 4.11/4.12 at 7:31p PT.
The Aries New Moon fuels the action we need to fire our passions. We have the ability to be bold, powerful, and strong. To take risks with courage and ignite our feelings. Take note of where there’s too much burning or what sparks have been blown out. Unpredictable Aries energy can be used in motivated ways but also can electrify anger.
So, get your journals out, light a candle, sit in a quiet space, and take a few deep breaths.
What do you want to bring into this new shift?
Plant seeds for new beginnings and nurture them carefully.
Be the manifesting bad ass that you were born to be.
As always, may the light shine on you. May the shadows teach you. May you be open to the signs and symbols all around you. They are always there, you just need the right kind of vision.
