Hello, loves. Tonight or tomorrow, depending on who you ask and where you are, is the first new moon of the new astrological calendar. As noted in yesterday’s post, there is a lot of energy swirling this weekend (Friday the 13th, end of Mercury in retrograde, and the new moon) so if life feels kinda crazy, or suddenly kinda clear, it’s okay. As long as you’re alive and breathing you can keep going on this delightfully fucked up ride called ‘life.’ Here’s what’s on for the new moon.
From The Numinous ::
You stand on the edge of a diving board. In the action of jumping, two things happen: you leave behind the position that you knew, and you start developing a new arc.
Before you jump it helps to know your intention and direction. Where do you want to go? How do you want to act? Who are you becoming?
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. This is the birth, the awakening. The sparked match that starts a bonfire. Warm yourself in the toasty flames of your brilliant visions.
The past weeks have been combative. Can you orient yourself toward inspiration instead? Plant seeds around the actions you’ll take, the creations you’ll make, and the new ways that you’ll put yourself out there. Conceive your new beginnings.
At the time of this New Moon, Mercury stations direct. Let your jump unfold slowly. There will be action, but it needs to uncoil from within you. It can’t be forced or rushed. Feel into the energy of the leap.
The chart of this New Moon has no air and very little water. It’s a dry burn of earth and fire. Balance it through conversation, learning new things, journalling, and letting your feelings flow. Get your ideas and emotions moving. Take care to set intentions that are aligned with your soul and make room for surprises.
From Aeolian Heart Astrology ::
The Sun and Moon will be conjunct to Uranus, ushering in a wild and untamable spirit.
Astrologically speaking, the New Moon in Aries is the time to set the tone for the rest of the astrological year. This is a potent magical time to raise your energies high and project them towards an illuminated vision of the future.
Your intellectual and ideological questions have been revised and refreshed over the last three weeks. You now know what you need to put your mind towards.
Think of this year’s New Moon in Aries as being drumroll for the dawn of a totally new era! Because this New Moon is touched by a conjunction to Uranus and a square to Pluto, this is also a ritual cleansing that must be done before crossing the threshold.
Let this New Moon initiate you into a new sense of sovereignty.
Thus, this New Moon marks the beginning of a time of massive overarching shifts in the collective energies.
There will be a shift in the collective need for healing and in the questions that guide the development of this upcoming era. Set the intention now to adapt knowing that the spirit of this New Moon is one of triumph over adversity.
The Goddess Circle has her inimitable lists ::
Mercury goes direct (communication and action opens again).
Move plans and ideas forward.
Growth and expansion.
What will you risk to get what you want?
Watch reckless behavior.
From the Cosmic Intelligence Agency (CIA) ::
This new moon in pioneering Aries is especially cyber-cosmic as it is conjunct ultra-smart, innovative, revolutionary, and futuristic Uranus. Making this week a great time to align with all that’s truly new.
The perfect metaphor for this Aries new moon conjunct Uranus is a baby chick breaking through its shell so that new life may emerge. Fascinating how this barely-there, little, life-ling, in all its isolation, ignorance and darkness moves effortlessly with its instincts to destroy its known world, its known perimeters, to awaken to the light and life of Consciousness itself.
This is the potential for all of us at the new moon, to be awakened to a new world of possibilities and most importantly to awaken to a new MO (modus operandi) i.e. how we go about doing things…Our instincts are being purified, strengthened, grounded, and empowered so that we may have the necessary inte-grit-y to know the truth within and recognize that in the world.

We have the space and support to change, beloveds- to begin anew. If you know what you’re supposed to do that’s different, take a step in that direction. Teeny, tiny step. (I’ll hold your hand.) Tell your truth, step into what you know is right, even if it ain’t pretty. Let it all unfold from what’s inside you. This is beauty.
Love to you all from the path,
Joanna :: xoxo
