We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time - TS Elliot
On the 5th of April the new moon in Aries shows us where in our lives we must work to bring in fresh energy, where we must honour our relationship with the ‘self’, and how we can guide ourselves to anywhere we want to go by trusting in the universe. From our earliest times as beings, we’ve looked to the skies above for guidance. The moon and the stars all hold the answers, and this time we are being guided to listen.
This dark phase of the moon brings obstacles with her, and how you harness her energy will determine whether you rise to the challenges set before you or how you face adversity. The choices you’ve made up until this point will determine which of those it is. This can be a destructive phase, however it can also be an immensely transformative time.
Aries is The Emperor of the Tarot and he’s the fiery 'grab life by the horns‘ personification of the ram. This power animal symbolises our will to recognise which choices are available to us in life, and the ignites the inner fire needed to charge toward our dreams; and paired with a force such as The Empress, both can go forth into the physical world together creating heaven on earth; a whole new reality founded by the courage, will and determination needed to see it through together.
This New moon affects each and every one of us by bringing our individual focus to our leadership skills and personal rituals which involve us making bold choices, taking charge of a situation and being pro-active within our lives. The ruling planet of the Emperor is Mars, so you will feel like a real adventure at this time and be determined to see your goals through to the end. Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. This fiery planet is masculine in action. When this energy is harnessed negatively it can manifest as volatile behaviour, so we mustn’t give in to our less noble traits or ruthlessness at this time, and he conscious of any test towards your morals and loyalty.
Many of us will be focusing on our personal needs, working towards inner harmony, dependability and the responsibilities of our lives. We are encouraged to maintain order and start preparing to make the dream a reality. This new moon vibe enhances the pure attained energy, harmony and co-operation. These skills create the door to your own initiation.
During this new moon you may also discover your own power to manifest when you pursue goals on the positive path. If your intentions are centred on the material plane, they will manifest as creative abilities. When they are focused on the spiritual plane, they have the ability to open new doors to explore the spiritual realms. This is exciting news as divine change is afoot. You must trust now more than ever in where the Universe is leading you.
