Message from your path of evolution
“Be composed. Stop and smell the roses.
Use your fiery passion for love … not just business.”
The New Moon is the first phase of Grandmother Moon’s Cycle. Now’s the time to start thinking about the fresh new lunar energy coming back into play. This phase supports the early stages of developing an idea, activity or planning anything that promotes betterment in your future. It is a time for new beginnings, a great period to start new relationships of any kind, and new endeavours. It is a starting point for exploring new opportunities. This is a time for making positive changes, looking for fresh career opportunities, and planting seeds of ideas that will be harvested later.
You are basically planting seeds of thoughts that will bloom into goals and start to manifest in the near future. Here you are starting or preparing for what you want in life.
Basically, what are you contemplating to put into motion in the coming weeks – new activities, connections, hobbies, projects, or a business? Start making plans to take classes, network with new people, or buy new equipment. This is the time to ponder the word launch. That’s what you are doing: launching ideas, actions, and even new ways of life.
As the moon’s light gets brighter and stronger, so will you. You don’t need to spring into high-intensity action overnight though. Take the time to do a little here and there with the notion that a slow ramp-up will generate a greater outcome.
You are like a bear coming out of hibernation slowly. It is an awakening. It’s similar to a new year, except it happens every month. Keep things simple as you move through this phase.
Mindfulness, staying focused on the present moment, can be difficult due to the excitement of things to come. It’s imperative to set the stage for you to move forward with clarity and swift action when the time is right.
courage, determination, honesty, leadership, strength, willpower
ARIES NEW MOON
When the Moon is in Aries, you may find yourself preoccupied with what others think about you.
Focus your efforts and energy on planting the seeds of things you’d like to manifest over the next 12 months, such as better health or increased focus and creative energy.
This lunar phase strongly supports the act of co-creation, so this is the time to get clear about what you want in your life. Stay focussed on the “what” and worry about taking action on the “how” later.
Manifesting and intention setting can be done at any time, but by aligning to the traditional associations of the new moon phase, particularly in Aries, and boosting your new moon vibes with crystal energy, essential oils, and affirmations you’ll have a winning combination for intention setting.
PHYSICAL BODY IN ARIES
Aries corresponds to the head, the eyes, and the nose. If you can avoid tooth extractions or invasive oral surgery including the jaw. Do not operate on the eyes, head, or brain.
ARIES FIRE ELEMENT
Fire moons are full of passionate energy and rely on instinct. They tend to react first and ask questions later. That means that your emotions might come with a dramatic—and impulsive—flair. You might show your feelings rapidly, or you might reach a quick boiling point before spilling over the edge.
ZODIAC TYPE – CARDINAL SIGN
Cardinal sign initiates action, ambition, spark to get things started, and the ability to act on its own inspiration.
ARIES RULED BY MARS
Mars is the planet of sex and drive and determination and pushing to get what you want. The sign and house Mars is in affects the way we change things in life. Mars is also the way people fight, and the kinds of things they fight about.
When Mars is in Aries, it goes after what you want. It expresses assertiveness. It is filled with desires. It carries masculine energy. The Romans called Mars the god of war. It shows what a person can fight for. Mars shows how the individual uses their energy and for what purpose.
Independent, action-oriented, spontaneous, generous, stubborn, difficult to control emotions, leadership, passion, confidence, self-serving, impatient, overworking, inability to understand others’ points of view
ARCHETYPE: THE WARRIOR
Able to step up and say what’s on their mind and in their heart. The Warrior won’t shy away from a fight but is just as quick to make sure peace is restored afterward and things move on. The Warrior is ready for a fight, but for a cause.

If you’re struggling with self-worth issues, take a minute during the time of the Aries Moon to write down some of your most common negative thoughts about yourself on a small piece of paper. It may feel painful to see these things on paper, but this is part of the process of recognizing just how damaging it is to be carrying these thoughts around with you. Place a little candle in a fireproof container and carefully burn the paper containing your negative self-thoughts. Intend to release these from your mind and energy body. Hold a Ruby crystal and think of one affirmation to replace each negative thought that was released. Carry the Ruby with you as a reminder of the positive self-image you are cultivating. Repeat this exercise as needed.
