New Moon in Aries

April 8, 2018 12:00 Current Astrology Articles
We have a New Moon in dynamic Aries on April 16th 2018, the first new moon of spring! New moons always signify new beginnings, allowing you to hit refresh in some area of your life! Get ready for a fresh energy influx in your life to help you set all your plans into motion!
 
Aries is the universe's primal moving force. Brimming with get-up-and-go, it signifies the time of  year when everything on earth awakens into new life. It symbolises action, self-discovery and pioneering initiative. The New Astrological Year begins in earnest once Moon joins the Sun in Aries, driving the message home that spring is here!

What is this New Moon in Aries all about?

After the intensity of the recent total lunar and solar eclipses, this New Moon in Aries is likely to take the volume down a little - just what you need to do some spring cleaning in some area of your life, open the doors and windows and enjoy an influx of fresh life-force! New Moons are not as intense as eclipses but each New Moon is a bit like a power-point: a different place where you can plug your life in once a month and get a fresh input of energy. This can help you power up a different aspect of your life each month, as we have 12-13 of these per year, dotted around the zodiac and activating different parts of your birth-chart. 
 
This New Moon may be in impetuous and proactive Aries, but it is configured in such a way that it should nonetheless bring a slow and gentle unfolding of the ideas that were planted this winter. It is a call to action! Make a new start without any fireworks or drum-roll and without too many other people getting involved, stepping in with their own agendas and confusing matters. It's time to slowly push forward with your plans. This new moon is perfect for taking a creative initiative and putting your long term goals into motion!
 
So, yes, you can take your time, but do get moving! New Moons open an energetic window of opportunity for you which remains open for around 7-14 days following the New Moon. Much like food that slowly goes stale, the fresher the energy when you use it the better; your motivation may slowly begin to wane as soon as 4 days after the New Moon and the window of action begins to gradually close after 8-10 days. So make sure to kick-start whatever you want to set into motion as close to that New Moon in Aries as you can! (Although go slowly, as Mercury is still normalising his course.) Expect to see your efforts begin to bloom as we enter May.
 
We have had Sun in Aries since March 20th 2018 for 3-4 weeks now, shinng a light of consciousness on the specific area of your birth-chart containing Aries. The Aries New Moon is here to give you a push to act on all your realisations, so enjoy!
 
Make the best of this Aries New Moon
  • Step boldly forth
  • Start something new
  • Take the initiative and go after what you want
  • Discover your inner warrior
  • Spring clean your life
