It’s a New Moon in Aries this Sunday, April 15th! New Moons are always revitalizing, offering a fresh start and an opportunity to plant new seeds for growth, and this one in unstoppable Aries will likely make us feel more confident and ambitious than ever. Set your intentions for the future now, forgive yourself for anything you’ve been holding on to or ways you’ve disappointed others or yourself, and refocus your energy on what you WANT so you can move towards it. It is valuable to recognize what you want to release from your life, and unhealthy habits may indeed make themselves suddenly very clear to you at this time, but beware the trap of focusing too much energy on the things you don’t want. Do your best to recognize anything negative that comes into sharp relief at this time as an opportunity to grow past it, transmute it, or take what you’ve learned and leave the rest. Energy flows where attention goes, so be mindful of your musings and prepared to yank yourself out of a downward thought-spiral if you start to tumble in.
Mercury Retrograde ends today (hooray!), although the shadow of those vibes will still be around and influencing things for the next two weeks. That’s actually very well aligned with the energies of this New Moon, though! Mercury retrograde was all about revisiting, reviewing, revamping. . .looking at what we already have or have done–and in these next two weeks we’ll keep those things in mind and consider how to integrate or expel them as we charge forward into our chosen futures. It’s time to enact new plans and set forth on achieving our goals. The sun is also currently in Aries (until the 19th), giving an extra boost of fiery energy to your locomotion. If there’s something you’ve been putting off, NOW is the time to take it on! <3
