Happy New Moon in Aries! New moons are always prime time for starting something new, and this one being in the first sign of the Astrological Year makes it particularly potent for such endeavors. If you missed making a New Year’s resolution at the start of 2017, now is your chance to establish powerful new intentions with planetary support! Aries is known for fiery drive, will power, and action-oriented energy, and Mercury, Uranus, and the Sun are all in this sign as well, making those Aries vibes particularly strong. Also in Aries is Venus (planet of love and beauty), but she is retrograding until April 15th, so we are being asked to pay close attention to relationship challenges and insights and may find our relationships and the way we think about them are tested and even tumultuous at this time. Watch your responses, and be careful how you react when triggered. It’s easy to say something now in the heat of the moment that you can’t take back, so be mindful to not act rashly. Rather, when something has upset you greatly, take time and space to consider what that strong reaction might mean in the history of your life. Has something current touched upon an old wound? Any time you spend examining how your past feelings and experiences may be influencing or emphasizing what is happening now will be well worth it. This new moon is a bit unique in the way that, though we may feel strongly compelled to act (RIGHT NOW!!!), we are best served by using what we are learning now to help pave the way for well-considered action to be taken later. While it’s not yet the time to act on it (wait until Venus goes direct if you can), we may be needing to reappraise our relationships, and consider how we have been spending our time and energy in them. Are we giving too much of ourselves, or not enough? What are YOUR core values, unadulterated by the opinions of others? This moon invites us to use that Aries drive to look at who we truly are, who we really want to be, and to do the work to love ourselves, first and foremost. Make some intentions, write them down, and do your best to keep your mind’s eye focused on what you want and where you are going. Not sure what or where? Making art of any kind can help you find your way. <3
