New Moon in Aries
Transit strength: strong monthly transit
Transit duration: influences throughout the week, strongest on Tuesday and Wednesday.
New Moon on 7 ° in Aries is strongly connected with this year’s Venus retrograde cycle and represents one of the major activators of its energy. The transit is also particularly interesting as it coincides with the start of the new season of spring. This is a time when life awakens from its slumber, a time of rebirth. Since the concept of a new beginning is also a symbolic concept of every New Moon, the energies will be especially profound. Influences will be mostly felt by Arians, slightly less by Libras, Cancers, Capricorns and especially by those born at the end of March, June, September, December and the beginning of April, July, October and January. All of you with important planets and astrological point between 0 ° and 18 ° in the sign of Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, you will also feel these energies distinctively. The New Moon will have a noticeable influence on other two fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, as well.
Emotional needs, moods, challenges, frustrations
Moon in Aries brings action, activation and initiation into our lives. Energy influences will be quite intense. For some this experience will be too burdensome yet others might find it to be very inspiring. Spring brings a lot of busy dynamics into our lives and if you are still in winter hibernation mode, get out of it’s as soon as possible. 🙂
As I mentioned above, this year’s Moon in Aries strongly emphasizes the effects of the Venus retrograde cycle, so the next three weeks will be very interesting. The Moon will bring about the first and perhaps already definite manifestations of the Venusian influence.
If we began to wonder in these past few weeks what or whom we find truly inspiring, if we began to wonder what or who truly makes us happy, keeps us motivated when it comes to our professional and personal lives, then this Moon might provide a unique opportunity to begin realizing certain life goals as we choose to walk the path that brings fulfillment, happiness and success. It is time to move from mere dreaming to some real action, it is time to plant the seeds of personal success. If we have already discovered what and whom we certainly do not need in our lives as they do not make us happy, if we found out that someone or something just isn’t right for us, then it’s time to move on, to learn a valuable lesson and to choose a new path and start a new search, a new journey.
Increased activation energy will encourage us to decisively tackle new projects of interest, new challenges, to approach existing activities of day-to-day life in a refreshed way, with greater enthusiasm. These activities can either relate to our spare time or our work.
Upcoming weeks will bring about some kind of renovation and may transform situations or circumstances in many areas of life in many different ways! With Venus retrograde we recognize and discover what or whom truly brings meaning to our lives, we redesign our own value systems and enrich our concepts and perceptions of love and mutual understanding.
Since Venus in Aries traverses a somewhat unfamiliar and foreign terrain, Aries is the natural domain of Mars, we have to be somewhat careful and cautious. In addition to all positive influences, such as increased motivation, enthusiasm and passion, we should pay attention to the negative manifestations such as overly selfish behavior, aggressive, impulsive, hectic behavior and hastiness just as well. These negative expressions of Arian energies, combined with a fiery moon may bring a lot of conflict, stress, a lot of quarrels, frustrations, bad moods, arguments, misunderstandings etc. be cautious, especially in relations with others. The atmosphere will be quite tense and charged at times, the moods of the people changeable, affective and highly tempered, so be careful how you express your feelings, thoughts, views, opinions and feelings!
The most important aspect of this year’s New Moon/Venus in Aries combo is of course true and actual emotional self-fulfillment. Emotional needs and desires will become our focus and we will have to start responding to certain inner calls in a very active way. A time for reflection and contemplation comes to an end. With the Moon in Aries a time of manifestation and realization comes to the fore. Start working on your ideas, projects, interests, your personal potentials and express your genuine and true emotions and feelings. It is time that we finally take the time and listen to our hearts. Follow your calling my friends. Do not be afraid to take important decisions, even if you do not know how, what or whom you would like to choose, just make a step in a particular direction. As long as you do nothing, life cannot redirect you or send you on your true life path. 🙂
Even if we find ourselves very confused as far as our personal ambitions, relationships, values or life situations goes, even if it feels like we are stuck somehow, even if we do not know what to do next, what course of action to take, even if we do not dare to move forward…we must try to activate ourselves, initiate something in the most positive way possible.
Even if we are not inspired by some newly acquired ideas, knowledge or awareness when it comes to the meaning of life, even if we do not delight in the expression of certain new values emotions, passions, attractions, feelings of love as we connect with other people or while we participate in some new activities, projects etc….Nevertheless, we should all try to discover happiness in this life we already live, we should find happiness and meaning in things we have already accomplished, we should already be happy just the way we are now, here in the present. We should approach our work and commitments with greater enthusiasm and joy, we should use these energies to revive, challenge and to enrich our relationships, to interact with the world in a fresh and dynamic way, guided by optimism and good will.
The secret of finding true emotional fulfillment during the influence of the Moon in Aries lies in the concept of active, daily participation in life. Spice up your days in the coming weeks, approach your daily activities with a positive attitude, with greater determination, resolve, smile more often and you will see that you do not need just some high-end fancy life goals, revelations and desires to find self-fulfillment, however, it is important that we try, especially in times of spring, like everything around us, to live and experience life in all its diversity and fullness. Do not miss out on the spring awakening, become a part of it. 😉
I wish you a beautiful, happy and successful week!
