How The New Moon in Aries on March 24, 2020 will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

A fresh start could really do us good right now. The new moon in March 2020 may not be able to solve the world’s problems, but it can offer a beautiful and prosperous new start for anyone who wants to work with their energy and start healing their wounds.

With a peak on March 24, this new moon in Aries will darken the sky, serving a giant explosion of the energy of the Aries season which can give us the motivation we need to start our goals and plant seeds for a fresh much-needed start – yes, even if we get away from society and spend more time at home.

As the first zodiac sign, the fire cardinal sign Aries is the great beginner of the zodiac. In astrology, the first day of the Aries season marks the start of a new astrological year and a new journey through the zodiac – so it’s more than just a new moon: it’s the first great light in the Astro new year of 2020, and it starts the first lunar cycle since this change too.

Obviously, given the global health crisis we face, the world is different now than it was at the same time last year – or even this time last week, for many of us. It is therefore not surprising that there are cosmic struggles here too.

The Moon in Aries will be in conjunction with comet Chiron, which represents deep wounds as well as deep healing. The alignment of these astrological energies brings transformational intensity to this light, giving us the feeling that we have to go through the flames to get where we are going.

But if we believe in it as a chance to start something and call on Aries’ patented bravery to guide us, we can move forward. “This new moon will make us all decide whether to take the low or high road. We will be confronted with our shadow self and the person we want to be. Be sure to implement changes in your mood and get inspired to evolve to the best version of you.

Aries:

The new moon offers you a new vision of your personality. Bringing this newfound confidence to your love life will inspire a more authentic connection with your partner – or if you are single, it will attract people who love you for being you. Despite the many changes that are taking place, the ball is actually in your career’s court – and the opportunity is on your side. The goal of this luminary is to decide what your next step is. Choose the path that suits you!

Staying true to yourself will always lead you in the right direction for friendships too. It’s your season, so vibrate with people who support your energy and your evolution.

Taurus:

You might feel some of your deepest emotional wounds come to the surface under this moon – which can result in temporarily rocky waters in your romantic relationships. As long as you prepare to face this storm and face the fight, you will come out with an even clearer vision of what you need in love.

Everything is in motion, but you can trust your higher self to guide you on your career path now, Taurus. Pay attention to your visions. They hold the key to your future. Social distancing shouldn’t be too difficult for you under this new moon, because you’re feeling deeply introspective right now anyway. Give yourself time to explore solo – which will ultimately deepen your friendships.

Gemini:

Breathe new life into your romantic relationship by connecting with the outside world – even if it’s virtual. Connect to a live Skype training class with friends to bring new energy to your unit.

Social distancing can be difficult here, as you are currently thirsty for creativity that accompanies a socially collaborative work environment. Spread your ideas with numerous text messages and video chats with inspiring colleagues or friends. Your reassessment of friendship is now and see who is golden and who is not. Times of crisis can really show people’s true colors – but it can also show you the gems you know you can count on, no matter what. Celebrate them.

Cancer:

The new moon helps you focus on your personal goals, Cancer, so let your lover get in the process. Now is a good time to connect with your dreams and aspirations and come up with a plan on how to best support each other – especially in these tumultuous times. Take advantage of the lunar energy to start preparing for a new start to work. Use this time at home to edit your CV. Update your LinkedIn account and all of your social media accounts to reflect your professional interests.

Focus on friendships that make you want to conquer your goals. This is not the time to step down to the dumpsites – this is the time to get up and earn your trust! Call on your closest confidants to boost your ego with words of support.

Leo:

If you feel worried about being locked up with your lover (or locked away from him), find imaginative ways to add a little adventure to the romance. Play board games or take part in fun quizzes to pass the time, or join a virtual book club to connect also on this level.

If you have downtime, this new moon is a great opportunity to spend time learning a new skill that can help you on your career path in the future. Take an online course, watch free YouTube videos and practice, practice, practice. You will have something new to add to your resume in no time. You embrace more ambitious pursuits and a more “woke” lifestyle. You have been developing and changing regularly as a person lately, and this new moon reinforces this fact. Make sure your friendships reflect your ideals.

Virgo:

All this time inside brings you closer to your lover and is more willing to deepen romantic perspectives. Increase your level of privacy to connect. It’s easy to get carried away by your professional responsibilities, but don’t let that overshadow the great need to take care of yourself under this moon. Setting limits is important right now, put your needs first.

You’re ready to bounce deep and intense ideas from your friends, so don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and spend a few hours diving into all the taboo subjects you can think of.

Libra:

You have felt the tides of change forming in your love life – but don’t be afraid, because change is often a good thing. A new foundation is blooming between you and your partner or crush. Adapt to the changes.

Be careful, as you could find a significant spark of creative connection between you and one of your friends or colleagues under this moon. You may be planting the seeds of a beneficial professional relationship.

With all that is happening, step back from your role as a social butterfly under this light and focus your energy on building a solid base with your closest friends. Tighten your inner circle.

Scorpio:

Understanding how to navigate a new normal in love is never easy, but the new moon helps things fall into place. Remember, bringing routine into romance doesn’t have to be boring – sometimes it’s a useful way to help you and your partners feel more stable in the midst of chaotic times.

Work can stress you out, so prioritize personal care and take breaks when you need to. Try a little light stretch to activate your muscles and your mind if you can’t walk outside. Ask yourself what you can offer your friends in terms of healthy moral support right now. This moon gives you renewed energy when it comes to helping others, so share your advice with your social circle in all the safe and loving ways you can.

Sagittarius:

Your romantic senses are perfect. Flirt with your crush. Sending a sexy text or two to start a flirtatious conversation is a great way to capitalize on the sexy energy that this light is raining on you.

Being locked up is currently stimulating your creativity, so don’t let your ideas get lost! Now is the time to put some energy into making one of your exciting projects happen – and hopefully make it happen full time! Your optimism and your cheerful energy are some of your best qualities, so offer these beautiful facets of yourself to your friends. Your mischievousness in the midst of a difficult situation has the ability to make even the most frowning faces smile.

Capricorn:

Opening emotionally is never easy, but this new moon presents a truly daring opportunity for you to develop new deep chains with your romantic perspectives. Putting your vulnerabilities on the table can help build a much more solid foundation in a relationship now.

Whether you’re working from home or just spending more time away from work, you might feel a little crazy – so make sure your space inspires and calms you down. Beautify your home by rearranging the furniture and spring cleaning. This is the perfect time to get in touch with your family members and the people you also live with. Spending more time at home means getting together and bonding with everyone in your household, so take the opportunity!

Aquarius:

Whether or not you are physical with your lover or crush under this new moon, this is the right time to increase communication. Have a daily check-in – even if it’s by SMS! – and be sure to communicate your thoughts and feelings so you can stay close.

If you have extra time, try to deal with the annoying little details at work so that you don’t have to worry about them later. Catching up on emails and rearranging your to-do list may not be exciting, but it will take your stress out later. Spending more time on social media can certainly increase the gossip factor for some people, so limit your time there and skip any low conversations now. Stay above the drama in your social circle and avoid gossip.

Pisces:

It’s amazing what a little physical pleasure can do to soothe a stressed mind, so if you’re with your partner during this new moon, make it very sensual! If you are not, you can still be pampered with the same sensuality, which will also bring a feeling of pleasure and calm to your romantic relationships.

You may not be a big fan of calculating numbers, but this new moon is a wonderful time for you to do some planning in the finance department. Use this extra time to budget and prepare for any change in your income. You are building something new in what you value and you can only be close with friends if they are there to support your development. It’s time to focus on building a deeper sense of self through self-help and reflection. Don’t be left behind by the needs of others.

Here are some ways to maximize the energy of the zodiac’s Aries Ram new moon energy

Let anger lead you to passion.

Be honest… what pisses you off to no end? Anger in and of itself is not a negative—it’s how we use it (constructively or destructively) that determines everything. The 2020 new moon in Aries calls forth our inner warriors. The things that make us fume are often pointers to our passions. This new moon can awaken your slumbering activism. Founding feminist Gloria Steinem was born under the sign of the Ram, as was civil rights and labor activist Cesar Chavez. Their confident, courageous world-changing impact is an example of harnessing Aries ire to start a revolutionary fire. We all have the power within us to shape the world. Rather than raging randomly when you’re feeling frustrated, we can create constructive change, fighting the good fight for our beliefs. Maybe we won’t go undercover as Playboy bunnies or organize farm workers this week, but in some small way, we can stand up for our beliefs. In some cases, this can be as basic as saying “no” to a degrading offer or daring to express an unpopular (but enlightened) idea in the face of extreme opposition.

Find your fight.

Sometimes, it’s smart to throw in the towel. You’re done, and the energy you expend is never gonna pay off. In that case, it might be quitting time. But other times, fear of the unknown is why you suddenly have that migraine, cancel plans, pick a fight with loved ones, crave another candy bar/ cigarette/ drink. Take inventory and see where you’ve given up too soon. Then hoist yourself up and get back on the mat.

Be selfish…for a cause.

Nakedly honest and unapologetic, Aries energy can stun us with its entitlement. It can also inspire us. Aries is unafraid to want more, to desire—and this can be the basis for prosperity. In our amateur Kabbalah studies, we learned an interesting principle; Kabbalah teaches that there are two kinds of desire: the desire to receive in order to share, or the desire to receive for the self, alone. When we want just for ourselves, we burn out fast. When we desire an abundant crop to feed the village, the universe is happy to give us more and more.

Tune your passion-o-meter to E (for excitement).

When was the last time you felt genuine excitement or joy about something? The 2020 Aries new moon prompts us to awaken that molecule-swirling, spine-tingling feeling. Let the hot blood pump through your veins, springing you into action. As it turns out, passion is an essential element of living a fulfilled life, and the Aries new moon serves up a reminder. As we’ve heard it said, emotions are E-motion—energy in motion. When we can FEEL something, we can move it. So let joy and passion help you get unstuck.

Embrace your inner fame monster.

Daring, in-your-face Aries is the zodiac’s superstar, so under the lunar spell of this new moon, we could all shine in the spotlight. Commit to developing a talent this week; one that could potentially catapult you into the public eye. Singing, dancing, acting, writing, design, photography, debate, engineering, urban farming: what’s your poison? This new moon wants us to pursue our passions and awaken our gifts. Who knows? We could see our names in lights near the Aries full moon six months from now, in October. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, so take it now… whether a teensy baby step or a confident stride in precariously high heels.

But don’t let it go to your head…

With all the daring Aries energy swirling around, there’s bound to be a good deal of stress that accompanies it. Hello, migraines—ouch! As the “head” of the zodiac, Aries rules the cranium and this new moon turns our healing focus there. Pro tip: Dehydration is often a major cause of headaches. Keep a pitcher of filtered H2O (with decadent slices of lemon or cucumber perhaps?) close at hand. Refill your glass regularly while you plan the New World Order.

Go for a scalp massage or a rubdown of your neck and shoulders, which are often the cause of cranial agony. You could also try this home reflexology remedy: use one thumb to rub the fleshy part of your hand between your forefinger and thumb. Want to get a little more ethereal? Nurture your noggin with a ritual that balances your crown chakra energy. This will ensure that you don’t fall prey to tension headaches—or ego trips—both signs of a crown chakra gone awry.
