Welcome new moon and new beginnings, and welcome to Mercury moving forward again! Yay!
With the communication planet being retrograde, these past weeks may have felt like a vicious circle of chaotic energy and miscommunication, but with Mercury direct once more, and Sunday’s new moon in Aries conjunct the sun and innovative Uranus, it is finally time to get proactive!
The time of the new moon is our monthly rebirth, always providing us with a rejuvenating fresh start. It is a time to forgive ourselves for our past mistakes, and to courageously plant seeds for the future. And, even though all new moons represent new beginnings, the Aries new moon is by far the most powerful new moon for setting intentions and starting afresh.
Aries being the first sign of the zodiac brings with it the energy of moving forwards and gives us the courage needed to take the leap towards new adventure and new growth. And if you add Mercury direct – no more miscommunication or delays, please! – and a conjunction to wild-card Uranus, I’d say now’s the time to revamp your goals and wishes and to just go for it! No more delays. The ram doesn’t do procrastination. Aries makes plans and takes action. Aries gives you the drive, passion and initiative needed to go after what you want. Most importantly, trailblazer Aries waits for no one, Aries ‘just does’, so make your new moon wishes clear, because ready or not, here they come!
And with groundbreaking Uranus in the mix, the energy of innovating yourself is even more intensified. Uranus is known as the “great awakener”, and Uranus in Aries is meant to spur you into action. Plant some bold intentions now, and there is a great chance they will bloom into fresh new adventures and great opportunities within the next six months.
Moreover, this is the last time Uranus will conjunct the new moon in Aries in another eighty years or so, so embrace this energy for what it’s worth, as in May this revolutionary planet will move into earthy Taurus, bringing in quite a different pace of energy.
In other words, this is your last chance to draw upon this revolutionary energy to make a radical change. Uranus in Aries can truly change anything and everything. Ask yourself how can you step into the highest version of yourself? What would you do? What would your life look like? It’s time to invent YOU.
Be aware of the sometimes-selfish energy that can surround Uranus in Aries though. With sun, moon and wild Uranus all transiting hot-headed Aries, don’t let your temper get the best of you. This is a bundle that prefers action over thought, and easily bring us into a fight or flight mode. Still, hard as it may seem, try and see if you can manage to be mindful about it.
When you get angry – and we all do sometimes – before latching out, make an effort to return to your breath and ask yourself why you get angry. And no, it is not the other persons fault. You alone are responsible for how you feel. Still, there is always a reason for our anger, most of the time it is just not the first reason that comes to mind.
You see, we don’t get angry where a wound is not triggered. Believe it or not, anger is pretty much fear on steroids. But instead of beating yourself- or whoever triggered your anger(!) – up about it, see if you can use these moments of anger to get to know yourself better. The darkness that always surrounds the new moon, presents the perfect backdrop for stillness, introspection and some real soul searching. And too often we are scared of what we will find in the stillness, and that is why it is so much easier to latch out in anger and blame the world around us, rather than looking within. But, even though fiery Aries may have a temper, he is a brave one too, and never afraid to step into the unknown, so why not draw in some of the ram’s courage before facing your demons.
In fact, the confident energy from Aries might make you realize that you are capable of so much more than you have given yourself credit for. Remind yourself that you are worthy and deserving of all your heart’s wishes – then go for it! I mean, if not now, when, right? Life is way too short to sit around and wait for second chances!
Moreover, Aries being the sign of Self, this new moon also calls you to set an intention solely for you? Self-love is always integral to the path ahead, and who said a date night with yourself couldn’t be just as fun! If you take the time needed to re-ignite your inner fire, you will see how life almost instantly becomes bigger, brighter and more passionate ♡.
So what are you waiting for? This new moon in Aries is here for you to take charge of your life. Remember that the Universe rewards those who dare to follow their heart, so embrace this unique and radical new moon energy while you have the chance. Believe in yourself, to make bold choices and take action! You don’t get to harness this powerful energy often, so be sure to make the most of it.
This is a time to upgrade and update. It is a time to do you. So set that bold new intention and find the courage needed to take the first step forward. Everything else will fall into place after that.
Trust that the world is ready for you, and let the magic happen!
New Moon Blessings
