New Moon in Aries: Make Changes Despite Fear
On March 20, 11:11 AM —
On March 21, 2023, 1:22 PM ET, we will experience a New Moon at 0º of Aries. This powerful event marks a clear new beginning in our lives and reminds us that it’s not necessary to be fearless to make changes: we need to trust ourselves enough to take risks despite our fears.
The current New Moon offers us a powerful opportunity to align with the energy of the Equinox and renovate our lives. Energetically, the sign of Aries, the 0º degree, and the New Moon are all indicating a time of new beginnings: this lunation is offering us an invitation to start something new, make changes, or adjust the direction we are moving towards
We are experiencing the first one of two New Moons in Aries in a row, a rare and exceptional event. The next New Moon in Aries, happening on April 20, at 29º of the sign, is also going to be a Solar Eclipse, the first one in Aries since 2015, and kicks off the upcoming Eclipse season.
This lunation will be most relevant for those of us who were born with personal placement in the early degrees of Cardinal signs and in the late degrees of Mutable signs. The individuals who will feel this New Moon more strongly are likely to experience major life shifts, turning points, and breakthroughs around this time and throughout the rest of the lunar cycle.
New Moon in Aries: Potent Time of Renewal and Change
New Moons mark the beginning of the lunar month. During this time, the Moon is still invisible from Earth, inviting introspection and contemplation as we set intentions for the weeks ahead. The Moon and the Sun are conjunct, forming a 0º angle from our perspective, and they occupy the same degree of the same Zodiac sign. As the Moon gradually receives more sunlight and begins to appear in the night sky, the energy increases, inviting us to take action. New Moons carry a powerful energy of renewal and encourage us to embrace fresh starts and new opportunities.
The New Moon in Aries holds special significance due to Aries being the first sign of the Zodiac, and this lunation marks the start of the New Astrological year. The energy of innovation and renewal is amplified during this time, making it an ideal moment to embark on new projects, make changes, or pursue a new direction. This particular New Moon is especially potent as it coincides with the beginning of Aries season and falls on the Equinox point at 0º of Aries.
New Moon at 0º Aries: Pure Potential, Awareness, and Creation
During Pisces season, we practice surrender and acceptance, deepening our faith in life and its unfolding. The beginning of Aries season and this New Moon at 0º of the sign represent an invitation to integrate the lessons we learned during the last month and encourage us to dare to trust Life enough to make a leap, dare to jump, dare to take action on our dreams, dare to do something that scares us.
This New Moon activates the 0º degree of Aries, which is the Equinox point and the very beginning of the Zodiac wheel, another potent indicator of renewal and renovation. In numerology, the number 0 represents pure potential, wholeness, and void, which is the space from which all creation arises. The number 0 is seen as the source of unmanifested energy, encompassing all possibilities and associated with new beginnings. It is also linked with awakenings, as it represents a state of pure consciousness and awareness.
New Moon in Aries: Self-Exploration, Self-Trust, and Self-Transformation
The New Moon in Aries offers us a powerful opportunity to tap into our inner strength and resilience. Aries is associated with beginnings, courage, and self-determination. This sign is about the spontaneous exploration of ourselves, life, and instinct. The Aries New Moon invites us to deepen our self-trust, let go of identity attachments that are no longer resonant with who we truly are, and focus on simply being present with what arises in the moment.
The energy of this lunation encourages us to take bold steps towards our goals and trust our instincts, even in the face of uncertainty and chaos. At this time, we are reminded that we possess the inner resources necessary to navigate any challenge that we may encounter. This upcoming lunar cycle may be a time for us to take risks and step outside of our comfort zones before we feel ready for it. The Aries New Moon reminds us that we don’t need to be fearless in order to make changes in our lives. We need to trust ourselves enough to be willing to take risks despite the fear.
New Moon conjunct Neptune & square Mars: Embracing Paradox and Complexity
The New Moon is conjunct with Neptune in Pisces and in a square to Mars, the ruler of Aries, in the late degrees of Gemini. These energies are at odds with each other and represent an opportunity for us to embrace paradox, ambiguity, and complexity.
Because of the conjunction of the Sun, Moon, and Neptune, we can expect a profound surge in our sensitivity, emotionality, and empathy. This alignment offers fertile ground for creative expression and spiritual exploration and invites us to channel our emotional energy into pursuits that are meaningful to us, such as the arts, healing work, and spiritual practices.
The activation of Neptune reminds us that change is not only a result of impulsive action, risk-taking, and forward movement. This configuration invites us to look within and connect with our deepest motivations, with our soul’s true intentions, and go beyond the egocentric will. The conjunction of Neptune and the New Moon reminds us that, by practicing trusting our intuition and connecting to our inner voice, we will gain greater clarity about how life wants to unfold through us and be able to take aligned action.
The square aspect between the Sun, Moon, and Mars creates a sense of urgency relative to taking action and indicates a high level of emotional reactivity. Because Mars and Neptune are still squaring each other, we may still experience a certain degree of confusion regarding our intended direction or our true desires. As we navigate potent energetic shifts, it is important to have regular practices that support us in remaining mindful and grounded while we strive to find clarity and focus amidst uncertainty.
New Moon sextile Pluto: Opportunities for Radical Transformation
The Sun and the Moon are forming a sextile with Pluto, currently at 29º Capricorn. The sextile is a harmonious aspect, a 60º angle, associated with the availability of new growth opportunities. However, their actualization requires effort and a conscious decision on our part.
The Sun and Moon’s alignment with Pluto adds even more energy and intensity to the current planetary climate, emphasizing the necessity for radical transformation of our identity, how we see ourselves, how we express ourselves, how we relate to our emotions and anger, and how we channel our life force energy.
This configuration marks the beginning of a phase characterized by profound changes and dramatic transformations of our internal and external realities. As Pluto prepares to make its transition into Aquarius on Thursday, we are embarking upon an era marked by revolutionary shifts and breakthroughs. Rather than resisting change, we are encouraged to embrace it fully and remain open to the new opportunities that will arise during this time.
New Moon in Aries: Taking Action & Moving Forward
The Aries New Moon heralds the start of the astrological year and is supported by the presence of numerous planets in Aries, urging us to tap into our passions and pursue our dreams. The New Moon’s coincidence with the Equinox point amplifies the strength of this energetic shift and underlines the significance of this event as an indicator of renewal, growth, and progress.
These astrological conditions are highly supportive if we wish to initiate something new, change our direction in life, explore different paths, and take risks. We have a chance to start afresh, move forward, and make changes, despite our fears and insecurities.
We are entering a powerful time to set intentions for the future and work towards materializing our desires. The Aries New Moon opens a portal of change and transformation, invites us to remain receptive, while also cautioning us against imposing our will onto Life without being attuned to how she is unfolding.
