WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
Are you ready?
Well if not, then too bad! This Aries New Moon is accompanied by an Aries Sun which just amplifies the affects this rebel Moon. Not to mention, it's even a Super Moon!
We are to experience a total of six Super Moons this year in 2016. Three of them are New Moons, the first one was in March, the second one is here in April, and the third one will be next month in May. This is our time to really send out the intentions we want for this year, as the last three are at the end of the year in October, November, and December. Which will help us really amplify the effort and energy behind the things are working on.
I really feel this is our year to set long term goals. After the ascension in 2012 a lot of us awakened and started the journey towards our higher calling, and since then we have been working hard on building a strong foundation to rest our new dreams and goals on. We set new boundaries, cut old ties, did some heavy shadow work, and aligned to our Higher Self. Now, we have more of a clear image of who we are, and where we want to go.
That's what this New Moon in Aries is all about, it marks our rebirth. It's time to break new ground and start new projects. Action is the name and game of this fire sign. Aries is the pioneer; the rebel who breaks old limitations and discovers new ground.
This sign cannot possibly deny who it is or conform to anyone else's design. That would mean certain death to it's spirit and the start of the dark dance with depression. We can no longer conform to old ways that do not suit our futuristic mind. We can see the potential and design of what we want to accomplish, so whatever seems to stand in our ways or limit us, has to go.
The focus is now on the new. Nothing can go back the way it was before once Aries energy has come in to make changes.
If you've been feelings some type of way, like a restlessness or sudden boredom from your normal routine, then you should take this Aries energy to your advantage and make some changes to your environment. Take that trip you've been saving up for and dreaming of. Apply for that job or enroll into the courses you've been wanting for some time.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, also the first fire sign, so the fire they cast out is the one which creatives the largest explosion to get the rest going. This is the kick of the ball in the football field when it comes to setting the mark for where you're taking things. Make it count.
There are also some downsides, or well more like shadowy factors that go with this New Moon. We all love to hear about the positive stuff and how much growth we're going to have, but we never stop to think about the negative affects as well. Or rather the things that we can longer ignore because this Moon is drawing it out.
There will most likely be break-ups for a need of independence. You will just need your space, room to roam and the freedom to do things at your own will. There could also be new flings starting for the sake of passion and the thrill that comes from flirting and affection. Aries does it big, so whatever decision is made will certainly be done quickly and without hesitation.
You might have experienced a major release or sudden ending to something that you were trying to hold onto. It was time for it to go, and leave it to Aries energy to shake things up in order for that to happen. This sign is the breaker of chains, so movement will be made without further delay.
Aries is the initiator but also impulsive and quick tempered. When an Aries is mad, they will blow, much like how a volcano erupts - yes it will be that intense. They release everything.
So emotional outbursts are likely. Our feelings can no longer be censored or held back, the urge is there so speak your truth, by any means necessary.
When Aries wants something, they get it, and sometimes any means necessary is done without the boundaries and borders it should have. With that said, you may feel sudden whims during this next week of acting on your impulses and passions. So think twice before you start that love affair or put down all that money for a single bet. You might feel confident, capable, and sure of the success, but you're not able to see the minor details involved that could bring trouble.
Most importantly, control your tongue and calm your jets!
The Pros and Cons
The intensity of the energy of this New Moon is off the charts when it comes to empowering these Aries qualities. When experiencing any of the cons, you want to try and be more self-aware - pause for a moment and reflect on why this emotion or situation is being triggered.
We must channel the energy right , it is uncontrolled, wild and fast paced, so we do have our work cut out for us. Keeping grounded is key!
If you need help with hints on how to ground, I always suggest time outside like a nature walk or working on a hobby that brings peace of mind. Even coloring or writing will be helpful as well - Aries being the sign of creativity, would definitely give a good boost to those projects.
The energy our planets within the solar system project down to us have no escaping. They affect us all. So it is within us that we must learn to channel the energy where we can allow it work for us. Otherwise, we can just hold on for the ride and embrace the surprises life brings us.
New Moon Intentions & Rituals
The New Moon is the perfect time to send out intentions and aspirations out to the Universe. With this being a super new moon, and in Aries, the energy added to what we want to start up are even more intense. This will give a giant boost to starting on new projects, goals, relationships, and jobs.
I do preform rituals, but I do not practice wicca. I have no religion; I am a child of the stars, the sky, the earth. The rituals I preform are ones I do which work for me. I only do what I naturally feel drawn to do. I believe that's how all rituals, prayer, or spiritual practice should be.
Items You Will Need for This Ritual
On the night of the New Moon, make sure you are comfortable and in your safe space. Take a cleansing bath before hand and cleanse your space with sage or whatever way you prefer.
Light your candle, hold your stones, and empower each of them with your intent. Envision what it is you wish to start on or bring into your life. Say a chant if it helps, or pray.
Focus your gaze into the candle as you envision what you want. As the flame burns and the light illuminates the room you're in, imagine what you wish to manifest, starting from the flame and extending out to where the light from the flame goes. The flame is your beacon to the universe. It is your channel sending frequency and air waves like a satellite.
Set your stones, Tarot card and any other items you wish to include near the candle. You can even create a crystal grid if you choose. All the while, keep your focus on your intentions.
On a bay leaf, write out your intentions with a pen. If they are too long, then write them out on a piece of paper but combine each individual one with a symbol, and write the symbol on the bay leaf. Be focused with your intent. I find rituals don't mean anything if the intent and passion isn't there, it's really all in the mind and the ritual mainly helps sending out the intentions and focusing the energy.
The bay leaf has been used for wish magic, divination, and also was used as a type of aromatherapy for the Oracle of Delphi. It is believed the leafs have a direct link with the Universe.
Light the bay leaf with the flame of the candle and set it in your bowl. As it burns, envision the fire bringing life to your intentions.
If you chose to write your intentions on paper as well, you can try two different methods. One is burn it with the bay leaf. The other is to set it under a Clear Quartz point. You would want to program the quartz ahead of time with your intentions as well. This will also act as a energy conduit of channeling your intentions to the Universe.
After the flame has gone out, depending on the length of a candle (you can use a tealight, a votive, or a long dinner-table candle), you can let it burn all the way out and stay in your bubble while casting your intentions. Or, you can burn the candle again, and again, focusing on your intentions night after night.
The last step, is patience. Nothing happens over night. If what you ask for is completely irrational or truly not meant for you, then you will not get it. The key here is to be aligned to your higher path & attuned to what resources you need for added success in bringing your higher calling to life. This Aries energy might have you a bit impatient with the results, that is why it is key to ground.
I would love to hear some feedback on how this ritual went for you. Please don't hesitate to comment on my Instagram, or here on this post :).
