Astrologically this is the first lunation of the year, coming just after the Spring Equinox on 20 March. Our journey from the New Moon in Pisces last month to this New Moon, was like the experience of dying, floating in the womb of the Great Mother, and being born anew.
Aries is the original spark, and this vibrant fiery energy can ignite your life right now. Let go of all that has been holding you back mentally. Those energies and thought forms are in the past now. This is an opportunity for a bold new beginning, a whole new way of approaching life, and a new way of getting results. Let nothing be the same. Life is born anew in each moment.
Allow the cleansing fire of Aries to put you back in touch with your inner purity. Aries is the Ram; it is also the Lamb. Be like the lamb and reconnect with your innocence and trust. Inside you, you are pure from the very beginning. As we commence a new astrological cycle, it is important to be pure of heart, like the Fool, and not carry any baggage with you. Let it dissolve this day.
As Chiron begins his journey through Aries, he brings healing to our deepest woundings that have been caused by anger, rash actions, and harsh words. On the New Moon in this sign, we can reflect on these things and bring healing to our families and dear ones, by accepting and forgiving, and no longer holding these core wounds close to our hearts. It is time for cleansing and release.
The Sun and Moon are squaring the Saturn and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, which adds a serious weighty tone to this time. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are like a massive heavy engine. The New Moon in Aries square brings dynamic sparks which can ignite this engine and finally bring some traction to your dreams and plans. Expect to see some movement. Allow yourself to be inspired and take inspired actions. This will get the big wheels turning.
As we are out of Mercury retrograde in Pisces, there is more forward movement in communications. Mercury is still conjunct Neptune, which can bring dreamy haziness and vague thinking, but it will begin to separate now and move off into late Pisces bringing some clarity. After this time, you may have gained some deep inspiration and heavenly guidance. Carry it with you into this time of action.
Jupiter in late Sagittarius is applying to the Sun and Moon in a trine aspect. This is the wild card energy; anything could happen, don’t give up on your dreams, and be prepared for the unexpected. The Fool, the Joker and the Intrepid Adventurer know that Life is full of infinite possibilities in every moment.
