As the first sign of the zodiac, the Aries New Moon kicks off this new season with a burst of fresh and exciting energy to help you accomplish your goals.
Both the Sun and the Moon are in Aries right now and that makes for a great time for action and initiating anything new!
Mercury went direct on the 28th of March and while we still have one week left of being in the “shadow period,” we will soon be feeling obstacles release and both clarity and vitality restored!
This New Moon on the 5th of April is sure to relight your inner fire! Aries is the Inspirer of the Spirit de la Lune deck. This sign holds the energy of action, courage, swiftness, and decisiveness. When the Moon is in Aries we feel more inspired towards action and beginning something new.
Anytime we shift seasons we are experiencing the turning of the Wheel of the Year, and with that turning always comes an opportunity for transformation, both inside and out. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are experiencing Spring and the reawakening of the Earth.
This New Moon in Aries begins the Flower Moon cycle and provides us with the rejuvenation we need so we can reach our goals so that we too can bloom.
Tend to the garden of your intentions.
On April 10th, Jupiter will go retrograde in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the home sign for Jupiter, the planet of abundance, wealth, and expansion. There is no reason to fear this retrograde!
Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, when retrograde in Sagittarius reminds us to not overindulge and overspend. Sagittarius, the Explorer will call us inward towards self-discovery and spiritual expansion if we listen and use this time wisely. This is a time for soul searching and focusing on inner self-development. A big lesson of this retrograde will be “Don’t turn to material things to make you happy.”
Be sure to check back on the blog for the Full Flower Moon Ritual on the week of the Full Moon.
Just days after the Full Moon, on the 20th of April, the Sun moves into the earthy sign of Taurus. Taurus holds hard working and determined energy.
Aries plants the seeds of inspiration, but it is Taurus that does the daily work of making sure the seeds bloom. It takes a lot of willpower and dedication to achieve your dreams!
While the sun is in Taurus, we get the extra push of determination we need so that we can take the daily steps. Often times, it’s the small daily steps we take that provide us with the biggest results. Let this Taurus energy help you build up that powerful momentum by putting in the daily efforts towards your goals… no matter how small they seem!
