On April 5th, the new moon in Aries marks the start of a new and exciting cycle. Along with the fact that this new moon celebrates the season of spring, it is also the first new moon post Mercury Retrograde. Fire sign Aries learns through action and experience. Now is a good time to set goals for our personal achievement. If you've been eager to make some real changes, trusting your gut instinct will prove to be successful. By following our intuition, you give yourself the opportunity to change your life for the better!
Although this new moon energy inspires us to speed things up, Aries' tendency to make rash decisions can sometimes do more harm than good. You may try to achieve something in a short amount of time but become blocked by obstacles. This is mostly due to earth sign Capricorn's influence on this new moon. It slows you down to prevent you from becoming too impulsive. The combination of these two energies can actually bring you into balance. Before you leap into action, you must be realistic about your plans and take things one step at a time. Direct your efforts toward a single determination, and you'll be unstoppable!
Having faith and confidence in your abilities gives you the courage to move out of our comfort zone. In terms of work, the motivation to turn dreams into a reality will keep you pushing forward. Aries is great at starting new projects, but sticking with them for the long haul can be the real challenge. What is it you are working towards? How do you envision yourself in the bigger picture? What are the steps you're truly willing to take to make it happen? Make a commitment to whatever it is that is meaningful to you! The actions you take now can set the stage for future success. Also, remember to enjoy the process and have fun with it! After all, Aries definitely knows that being present helps to make the most out of any situation!
Wishing you all a powerful New Moon in Aries.
Be well, Juliana M. Fanucchi
