The New Moon in Aries is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with gusto and confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project, and discover our own personal courage.
This is a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid yet realistic plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and thus a New Moon in Aries is especially ripe with opportunity for new beginnings. We might consider acting on a constructive impulse and following a hunch or taking a risk. Aries learns through experience and action, so we might treat ourselves to a little adventure now. It’s also a good cycle under which to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are, without putting on airs. We might also find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so – it will go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out. It’s a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine and that involve doing something new and fresh.
However, the New Moon forms a square to Saturn, suggesting some blocks surrounding our new beginnings. Something may not get off the ground as quickly as we’d like now. Even so, we’re in a rare window when none of the major planets/bodies are retrograde, and things may very well swim along after this check-in with reality.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 15 degrees and 17 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 11 to 19 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, and Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
If you feel like the last few weeks have been all about a time of major changes, plenty of new beginnings, and lots of goodbyes, you aren’t wrong: between the Spring Equinox and the beginning of Aries season, things have definitely been shaken up for everyone lately. It doesn’t seem like that’s ending any time soon, either. On Apr. 5, the Aries New Moon will rise, and it brings about some change and fresh starts as well – along with the confidence you need for these types of challenges. While it will affect everyone, it will be slightly different for each zodiac sign, and some won’t be affected as much as others.
The Aries New Moon will push us all to change our core beliefs. We may be met with resistance, but with perseverance we can grow into the best version of ourselves.” Because the New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, it will always inspire us to do something new – but that kind of energy is even more intense with the Aries influence. That’s because Aries is a bold, fiery sign with all of the confidence you could need, and it’s going to rub off on pretty much everyone. Aries is a sign that knows what it wants, and doesn’t want to wait for it. They go after things, and you’ll find that you may want to do that as well during this New Moon.
Aries is a sign that is known for courage, impulsiveness, and outgoing energy. An Aries is not timid or meek, or scared to go out on a limb and try something totally different. We’re all going to feel motivated to make a change… but at the same time, that intensity will be different for everyone, and that can depend on your zodiac sign. Every sign will feel something, of course (it’s almost impossible not to during a powerful moon cycle!), but some will have things a little more chill, and that’s not always a bad thing.
