Who’s felt fired up over the last 24 hours? Just me? I didn’t think so. The New Moon in Aries is the spark we need to start something new – and what gets started depends on what we most want to manifest over the next 6 months.

Before I talk about today’s Aries New Moon, let’s take a quick look at where the planets are this weekend.

      • Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in Aries
      • Mars in Gemini
      • Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius
      • Uranus in Taurus
      • Neptune in Pisces
      • Pluto in Capricorn

If you’re keeping score, that’s 4 planets in fire signs, 3 planets in air signs, 1 planet in water sign and 2 planets in earth signs.* Can this contribute to the burst of energy we may be experiencing? Absolutely. When planets are in fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), they take on more assertive, dynamic traits. We see independent action and a tendency to make impulsive, spur-of-the-moment decisions. With Aries, that’s frequently the case. Ruled by Mars, Aries embodies courageousness and is ready to take charge of any situation. Aries’ motto is I AM.

Moon in Aries

If we associate the signs of the zodiac with human life stages, Aries is the infant of the chart: its needs and desires are self-centered and it hasn’t yet learned how to relate to others in a way that is mindful of other people’s needs. Babies don’t hesitate to let their caretakers know when they need attention, whether they are hungry, tired or need a new diaper. When someone is born with the Moon in Aries, every feeling may be treated like it’s an emergency that must be addressed immediately. Once that feeling is expressed, the Aries Moon person moves on.

When the Moon is in Aries, we all may experience a taste of this energy. Our emotional response is quick and incisive. Tempers may flare easily, but burn out just as fast. An Aries Moon encourages us to embrace and express our feelings when we feel them, whether that’s happiness, frustration, sadness, or passion. While that might seem overwhelming to those of us with our natal Moon in air or earth signs, which can lean toward more reserved, thoughtful (and possibly overintellectualized) emotional expression, there’s something to be learned from an Aries Moon: “Get the feelings out and let them go, because feelings are like buses – there’s always a new one coming down the road!”

Manifesting at the Aries New Moon

I highly recommend using Wayne Dyer’s Meditations for Manifesting as part of your Aries New Moon manifestation ritual work. It’s a very powerful resource and I can personally attest to seeing changes in my life as a result of working with this meditation practice.
