purpose, direction, beginnings, action
“I am learning to enjoy the journey without expecting a specific outcome. I admire the progress I have made so far, and let go of the need to compare myself to others”.
The first New Moon of spring is here, in fiery Aries reaching its peak at 11º. This new moon falls in the first Mansion, reminding us of the importance of taking our time to look back at our progress whenever we feel stuck or when we question our abilities moving forward in our journey.
Who were you one year ago? What were you doing back then? How was your life compared to how it is now? The beginning of a new journey can feel both scary and exciting. This New Moon in Aries is reminding us the world is our oyster, and that the things we experience through the journeys we embark on are in many cases more significant than the outcome we seek to attain.
Through the years working with different astrological transits, I have always experienced the best and more tangible results using the Aries New Moon for manifestation purposes. How the New and Full Moon portal works is to set intentions during a New Moon (in this case the Aries New Moon) then around October during the Aries Full Moon in Libra season, which is when you are likely to see the effects of our manifestations.
When we think about this, there is a period of 6 months in between those two lunations. This is our time window to do the work. I do not believe in writing down our intentions and waiting for them to happen. Manifestation is a conscious choice, it is a spell. In order to manifest what we want, we need to have a clear mind, a vision. There needs to be purpose in our actions. So now, when you seek to manifest using the power of the moon to your advantage, regularly check-in with yourself to see if your intentions are in alignment with what you are trying to manifest.
This New Moon will receive the support from Mars in Aquarius applying sextiles to both the Sun and the Moon. This is quite significant since Mars is Aries’ ruler, boosting up the effects of this lunation.
This New Moon in Aries has more to offer though. It is a celebration, inviting us to look back at our journey and see how far we have come. Even if you are not exactly at where you would like to be, this New Moon reminds us of the things we have accomplished and endured in our lives so far, and how many of these things were something we wished we once had. I hope during this New Moon in Aries, your intentions are driven by purpose and you appreciate your trajectory so far, knowing there will be new opportunities awaiting for you.
*To make the most of your horoscopes remember to read for your rising sign first, then for your Sun sign if you were born during the day or your Moon sign if you were born at night.
