New Moon in Aries +Intentions

Here we are at another New Moon report. If you remember from past reports, the New Moon occurs when the Moon meets the Sun at the same degrees in the zodiac, and launches a new cycle. Because the Aries New Moon is the first New Moon of the season, it’s official Spring is here. In astrological terms, the New Year begins when the Sun enters Aries.

Speaking of Aries, he is well known for his fiery spirit and act-first-think-last-impulsiveness.  Ruled by the action-oriented Mars, planets in Aries take his “go-get-em attitude” to heart. For example, my Venus is in Aries. Its considered to be in its detriment there. Personally, I think Venus Aries people have gotten a bad rap, if you are romantically interested in someone are you going to sit around pining, hoping they will notice you or are you going to let them know? It’s all about being bold, upfront and cutting to the chase.  The truth that we get bored easily is another matter altogether, but hopefully you have some earth signs in your chart to keep you stable and grounded.

 When the Sun’s in Aries it is considered to be in its exaltation, so its brilliance shines even brighter. This is especially true with the pairing of the Sun & Moon. Any intention setting for this New Moon should be all about the places in your life you would like to be bold, daring, & trailblazing, where do you want to jump right in with both feet? There has to be areas in your life where you are sick and tired of being told what to do, sick and tired of the status quo, sick and tired of your partner always interrupting you and not getting a word in edgewise.  Well this lunation could shake up personal relationships. This new moon has lots of break out energy attached.

This new moon is conjunct Uranus, with this planet anything can happen, and I mean anything.  Uranus is the planet that changes your entire life in an instance. One day, you wake up and go to work like any other and then BAM!  Something happens and your life is never the same. Don’t take this as an ominous warning, because it’s not!  It is worth mentioning, this is the last time Uranus will be conjunct a New Moon in Aries in our lifetime.  As he is switching signs in Taurus the 15 of May.  The last time Uranus was in Taurus was during the Great Depression. There will be some changes in the field of real estate, apartments, money as we know it; think crypto currency, the banking system and all things ruled by Taurus. Uranus rules rebellion, revolution, power to the people, ETs, the internet, astrology all things “trippy, out-there or weird.”Like I said, expect the unexpected.

Also, we can expect the truth to flow out or spew out of our mouths with Mercury going direct on the same day as this lunation. Mercury in Aries, will go direct and start retracing his steps back to the degree he was in when he started the retrograde.  That is when we know we are in the clear.  Which house in your chart does Aries rule?  Expect some new truths to emerge in the area around this house.

If you are one to make New Moon intentions, or wishes, or manifesting the desires of your heart then you want to keep them focused on Aries activities. Here are just a few:

  • Blazing New Trails

  • Initiating

  • High Energy

  • Taking Action

  • Instincts

  • Assertiveness

  • Honesty

  • Authenticity

  • Impulsiveness

  • Straightforwardness

Keep your intentions written like this:

  • I want to find myself initiating action in regard to

  • I want lots of high energy and vitality

  • I want to initiate a happy new beginning in m y relationship with _______________

  • I want to easily find myself asserting myself in healthy ways.

A new moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees our imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow and flourish, so be mindful of your thoughts as well.
