New Moon in Aries, April 2022: Path to Self

On April 1, 02:24 AM ET, we experience a New Moon at 11º30’ of Aries, the first one of the Astrological Year, bringing potent energy of beginning and renewal. This New Moon is conjunct asteroid Chiron and represents an initiation in our healing journey, a new chapter on our path to discovering and expressing our true Self. 

The Moon has been slowly disappearing from the night sky for the past two weeks. During the upcoming days, she will soon start to be visible again. New Moons are new beginnings: the Moon aligns with the Sun on the same degree of the same Zodiac sign and initiates the lunar cycle. These cosmic events represent a moment to turn inwards and reflect on what seeds we want to plant, what intentions we desire to set.

The two weeks following the Full Moon are a time to release our efforts, let go of old intentions, and slow down. After the New Moon takes place, the momentum grows: the upcoming fourteen days are a time to take action and see where our instinct takes us.

To celebrate the arrival of this New Moon in Aries, on April 1 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live New Moon in Aries Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Moon in Aries: Need for Freedom, Passion, & Excitement

 

The Moon in Aries has playful, impulsive, creative, and passionate energy. In the sign of the Warrior, the main emotional need is to be in motion and to spontaneously explore the desires and feelings that arise on a moment-to-moment basis. 

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac: it is a sign that lacks experience and needs lots of freedom to discover what life can offer. When the Moon is here, we feel safe when we are free to express ourselves as we desire and have enough space to take courageous leaps of faith. We deal with our emotions independently and express them as they arise, typically without forethought.

If a Moon in Aries is making challenging aspects, the spontaneous emotional expression and the assertion of our needs and desires tends to be held back by self-consciousness, shame, and lack of confidence in the validity of our instinctual urges.

Anger, resentment, and frustration accumulate and can explode inappropriately as there tends to be low tolerance for distress and discomfort. When the Moon is traveling through the sign of the Ram, it is crucial to keep the energy moving and explore constructive and creative ways to give space to our impulses and feelings. 

 

New Moon conjunct Chiron: New Beginning in our Healing Journey

 

This New Moon will feel different than a typical Aries New Moon, as it is tightly conjunct Chiron and Mercury. The conjunction between Sun, Moon, and Chiron is likely to be felt particularly intensely.

Chiron is an asteroid representing our capacity to heal and alchemize pain by going through it and confronting what we are afraid to face. It correlates with feelings of rejection, alienation, emotional wounds, but also with our capacity to feel and soothe the pain of others thanks to the connection we have developed with our own pain.

Chiron is placed in the asteroid belt, between Saturn and Uranus, and some Astrologers consider it to be the key to our individuation process. Saturn has to do with our conditioning, while Uranus is about deconditioning: Chiron being in between them represents the bridge that helps us shed layers and become closer to who we are. The astrological glyph of Chiron is a key, and Chironic processes open doors to dimensions of self that had been hidden, buried, repressed, forgotten. The path, however, is not easy: Chiron cracks us open and invites us to remain open even if it hurts. 

 

New Moon conjunct Chiron & Mercury: Journey into the Subconscious

 

The Aries New Moon may give us chances to face feelings of being rejected or misunderstood for expressing our individuality and asserting ourselves. The triggers that emerge around this time can give us information relative to something we need to work on to embody our full, uncensored, spontaneous expression. Chiron’s transit through Aries invites us to confront fears and wounds around self-assertion, repressed anger, and feelings of not having the right to exist and take space.

Mercury is also conjunct Sun, Moon, and Chiron. For this reason, writing, journaling, vlogging, having long conversations with trusted friends or with a therapist are likely to be helpful ways to process emotions and elaborate on what we are feeling and experiencing.

In mythology, Mercury is considered to be a psychopomp, who has the task of guiding souls to the underworld and is the only one allowed to travel in between the realms of the living and the world of the dead. On this New Moon, the Messenger will help us make sense of what is taking place in our inner and outer reality, and guide us on our journey into our subconscious and our emotional world.

 

The Venus, Saturn, Mars conjunction in Aquarius

 

Mars is the ruler of the Aries New Moon. Its condition is giving us more information about how the current planetary configuration is unfolding and manifesting. Mars is now in Aquarius, which is about free, independent thinking. It is about moving away from the mainstream, making our own choices, and feeling confident walking in a direction that is different from the one the crowd is taking. In this sign, the ruler of Aries expresses its energy in an experimental, rebellious, and innovative way: the potential for creative breakthroughs is high.

Mars is approaching a conjunction with Saturn, which will go exact on April 4. Venus is also in Aquarius, separating from both Mars and Saturn, but still close to both. The Mars-Saturn conjunction is likely to show up very prominently these days. This aspect indicates a tendency to act in a rigid and authoritarian way. Fear of losing control could result in repressing our desires and not allowing our urges to express spontaneously. Positively, Mars conjunct Saturn supports our determination, willpower, and self-motivation. Their alignment inspires us to be the authority of our lives and to take responsibility to take action in the direction of our goals.

 

Venus, Saturn, & Mars square the Nodes: Reintegrating Forgotten Parts

 

Venus, Saturn, and Mars are all squaring the Lunar Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio. This configuration signals unresolved issues coming to light, particularly around self-worth, self-value, intimacy, sexuality, partnership, authorities, responsibilities, and commitments. The emphasis on the sign of Aquarius highlights the need for objectivity and invites us to take responsibility for how we are managing our energy and our emotions.

new moon in aries

Planet squaring the Nodes can’t move either backward or forward: they point to the necessity of re-examining our relationship with the energies involved. With three celestial bodies squaring the Nodes, karmic encounters, twists of fate, and events are a strong possibility: we may have the opportunity to find a resolution to something we haven’t fully reconciled with. To move forward, we sometimes need to stop and take a step back to reintegrate fragments of ourselves we lost or forgot along the way. 

 

Predominance of Conjunctions

 

As the New Moon takes place, Jupiter is approaching Neptune in Pisces: their conjunction is perfecting on April 12, and it is already active, indicating a desire for spiritual growth, expansion of consciousness, strong idealism, and a tendency to see the highest potential of everything and everyone. Currently, there are three main clusters of planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Chiron are in Aries, Mars, Venus, and Saturn in Aquarius, while Jupiter and Neptune are in Pisces. Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn aren’t aspecting any other planet. 

The conjunction, indicating the merging of the energies of the celestial bodies involved, is the most prominent aspect. Conjunctions always imply a degree of unconsciousness, because when planets are so close together they can’t see each other. As there is no communication between the three clusters of planets, right now it may be difficult to see clearly what we are going through and the purpose of what’s happening.

New Moon in Aries: Path to Self

 

The upcoming lunar cycle will offer us plenty of opportunities for healing, emotional maturation, spiritual and psychological growth. The Aries New Moon is an opportunity to acknowledge where we are on our path, what direction we desire to go towards, and what we need to work on. 

This event marks a new beginning in the way we relate with our instinct, in the way we assert ourselves, and in how we deal with feelings of rejection. It invites us to embody our individuality and reclaim our right to take space. 

The activation of Chiron may show us where we are still playing small, where we are ashamed of expressing ourselves, where we mistrust our instinctual urges, and where we are not fully honoring the energy meant to be expressed through us. It may bring up the need for a deep self-reinvention and redefinition, to get closer to our true essence.

New Moon in Aries 2021: Taking our Power Back

On April 11, 10:30 PM ET, we experience a New Moon in Aries 2021, the first New Moon since the New Astrological Year began. New Moons happen when the Moon is conjunct with the Sun, on the same degree of the same Zodiac sign. These alignments represent the start of a new lunar month: they inaugurate a new chapter of our lives, inviting us to begin anew, set intentions, plant a seed, and look forward to what the future holds.

As the Moon joins the Sun at 22°24’ of the sign of the Warrior, they both square Pluto in Capricorn. The presence of Pluto in the planetary configuration turns on the intensity of this cosmic event, which will be strongly felt, especially by those of us with planets or angles in the last degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

To celebrate the arrival of this New Moon in Aries, on April 11 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live New Moon in Aries Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

New Moon in Aries 2021: the Beauty of Initiation

 

The New Moon in Aries reminds us of the beauty of initiation. Aries is the very first sign of the Zodiac: like New Moons, it also represents the beginning of a new cycle, as it symbolizes the separation between the newborn and the mother through the cut of the umbilical cord.

Aries has the capacity of making things happen. As a Fire and Cardinal archetype, it is inherently creative, fast, and instinctual, driven to taking risks. Aries lives passionately, making the most out of what is available.

The Sun, the Moon, Venus, Chiron, Eris, and Mercury are all in Aries right now. The strong activation of the sign of the Ram lights up the fire in our bellies, inviting us to connect with our instinct and generate motion. Aries encourages us to give ourselves completely to the moment, to any experience, to existence itself, to trust our impulses and our desires, and get back in touch with our instinctual, raw nature.

 

New Moon conjunct Venus and Eris: Need for Freedom

 

The Sun and the Moon are conjunct Venus, currently at 26° of Aries, and Eris, at 24° of the sign. This configuration highlights our need for freedom and increases our drive to fight for justice, for what we believe is right.

Eris, named after the Goddess of Chaos and Discord, is a dwarf planet discovered in 2007 with an orb of over 500 years. Eris moves extremely slowly and has been in Aries for around a century: it has been associated with disruptions to what is established, competitiveness, and activism. Eris is a Warrior Goddess and, in the sign of Aries, her symbolism is magnified. Eris has been in a long-term square to Pluto, still active until the end of the year, which reflects the issues around social justice and equality that have been highlighted throughout the last year.

This combination of energies supports our capacity to face challenges proactively and to express our feelings openly and directly. During these days, it is advised to be mindful of impulsive reactions, as they can be unexpectedly destructive.

 

New Moon square Pluto: Confronting Limitations and Attachments

 

The Sun, the Moon, Eris, and Venus in Aries are all forming a 90° square to Pluto in Capricorn, which increases the tension we are experiencing on this New Moon. Squares are aspects of friction. They are associated with a conflict between different energies that demands the implementation of change: the discomfort reflected by squares can be used as fuel and as motivation to improve our reality.

The New Moon squaring Pluto increases the emotional intensity of these days. This aspect highlights the need to release unconscious attachments and to feel something that has been suppressed or hidden for long. Manipulation tendencies linked to a need to feel safe may come to light to be elaborated and understood. During the upcoming lunar cycle, we will have chances to change the way we deal with difficult feelings and to reach deeper emotional maturity.

new moon in aries 2021

With the Sun square Pluto, we may feel threats to our autonomy and to our capacity to freely self-express. Aries is impulsive and instinctual, needs and desires absolute freedom, while Capricorn is about structural limitations, norms of conduct, and social regulations. The Sun-Pluto square may highlight our fears of being controlled and limited by others in positions of power and increase our drive to rebel against them. This alignment ultimately demands a metamorphosis of our sense of purpose and of how we deal with our personal power. It highlights any self-destructive tendencies that may block us from fully shining.

Venus square Pluto, exact today, may reflect some tension, drama, and power struggles in our relationships. The conflict we experience may be linked to the fact that, while on the one hand we crave absolute freedom, on the other we may be addicted to intense sensations, yet we fear being controlled or manipulated. Venus in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn is an invitation to transform our connections with others and to allow ourselves to be transformed by our exchanges with others. This aspect represents a chance to bring our relationship with ourselves and others to a deeper and more authentic level. 

 

Mars square Neptune: Aligning Actions and Ideals

 

Mars is the ruler of the New Moon in Aries. Its condition gives us important information to interpret the significance of this cosmic event. Mars is currently in Gemini and squaring Neptune in Pisces: the exact alignment was on April 9, and we are still feeling its effects.

Mars and Neptune have completely different purposes and functions. While Mars is about instinctual and self-directed action, willpower, determination, and decision making, Neptune is about dissolution, surrender, acceptance, and letting go. Neptune is the most mystical and transcendental planet, and its energy can be hard to integrate it in our daily reality without a solid spiritual practice: this is why it is often associated with confusion and disorientation.

While Mars in Gemini desires to acquire knowledge of different topics and make a variety of experiences to be able to better understand reality, Neptune in Pisces brings us back to the awareness that no matter how much we study or how much experience we make, we will never know for sure what is really going on.

When these planets meet in a square, we may notice sensations of fogginess and confusion, which prevent us from taking action and following through, maybe giving us the impression that we are wasting our energy and focus. With Mars in aspect to Neptune, we may get deceived easily: it is not an ideal time to make important decisions or moves.

On a positive note, Mars in aspect to Neptune reflects a significant increase in our creativity, fantasy, and imagination. We are likely to feel more inspired and creative than usual: these are great days to focus on artistic projects, hobbies, and creative activities that involve the physical body. To make the most out of this square, our actions need to be aligned with our ideals and our values. We are encouraged to invest our energy in something that truly inspires us, in something we wholeheartedly believe in.

 

New Moon in Aries 2021 sextile Jupiter: Cultivating Self-honesty and Authenticity

 

The Sun, the Moon, and Venus in Aries are creating a sextile aspect to Jupiter in Aquarius. Sextiles open windows of opportunity, yet require an active effort on our part to actually put things in motion.

The sextiles between Sun, Moon, Venus, and Jupiter will enhance our need for freedom, and support our capacity to objectively deal with charged emotional material. These aspects allow us to tap into our ability to keep an optimistic attitude and a growth-oriented mindset in the midst of challenges while emphasizing our concern around themes of social equality and our desire for collective progress.

The presence of Jupiter helps us keep things in perspective rather than being carried away by our feelings, and highlights the importance of cultivating radical self-honesty and authenticity during the upcoming lunar cycle. These aspects remind us to respect and honor our personal truth, even amid uncertainty and emotional intensity.

New Moon in Aries 2021: Taking our Power Back

 

This New Moon is starting an intense lunar cycle, which will culminate with a Full Moon in Scorpio opposing Uranus. During this time, grounding practices and emotional regulation techniques, as well as spiritual practices such as meditation, will help us remain in alignment so that we can harness this transformative energy without getting overwhelmed by it.

When Pluto is very active, as it is now, our potential for a deep psychological exploration of both ourselves and others exponentially increases, as unconscious material, repressed emotions, and compulsive patterns of behaviors tend to come to light.

The planetary alignments of the moment are asking us to reflect upon the foundation of our self-worth, our value system, our beliefs, and our priorities. They represent an invitation to ponder upon the reasons behind our tendency to act and react in certain ways, and behind our desire to form or maintain certain types of relationships.

The squares between Sun, Moon, Venus, and Pluto offer us an opportunity to undergo a process of significant personal and emotional transformation that can ultimately serve us to get back in touch with our power and reach new levels of self-awareness and self-love.

New Moon In Aries, March 24th 2020 – New Ways Of Being

Aries Season New Moon occuring March 24 at 9:28 am UT.

 

Aries Season New Moon is Especially Potent

 

Every New Moon ushers in a sense of new beginnings and fresh starts, but this year’s Aries Season is especially potent. This New Moon is activated by Black Moon Lilith, has connections to the legendary transits of 2020 and will continue to play out throughout the remainder of the year. 2020 is a turning point, and this New Moon is part of the pivot. Let’s break it all down with an open heart and an open mind…

A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon come together at the same point in the sky, which happens every 28 days. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and in many ways Aries Season (tap here to read our Aries Season article – it’s mind blowing and powerful) is the start of a new year.

 

Aries New Moon is the Start of a Whole New Chapter

 

We’ve undergone some serious energetic shifts recently, which we will dive into below, but let’s begin by imagining that not only is this Aries New Moon the start of a new lunar cycle or a new zodiac year; but that this is the beginning of a whole new chapter of Earth’s history.

Something is Happening

 

Before we get any further let’s check in with ourselves. Let’s acknowledge the fact that we can feel something is happening. We can all sense that this is a time like no other on our planet. Of course, this will bring all sorts of emotions to the table, and we’re not asked to deny ourselves personal opinions about what’s occurring.

We can all choose to make up our minds about the details but there is a collective agreement that something is happening here. 

marthin luther king

This agreement is huge. The fact that all of planet Earth can agree on this palpable shift is significant. This energy is a big deal and because we are all incarnated at this point in time, we are a part of this too. It’s crucial to remember that each of us holds a potent potential. We’ve been living on a planet that has numbed us out and sold us on an underrated version of who we are and what we are capable of.

 

Aries New Moon is Asking Us to Remember Our True Value

 

It’s like a pawn shop that undermines the true value of a piece of jewelry. The pawn shop gives us a small amount for the piece and because we don’t know any better we accept it and go on with our day. The shop owner turns around and benefits off our unawareness.

It’s not our fault, but the systems we have been living under have low balled us. Whether we want to associate the pawn shop owner with a specific individual or simply see it as “the powers that be”, is up to us. The point is we are now learning to know our true worth.

We are discovering what it means to be human at this point in time. 

This awareness is cascading through the ethers and we are waking up to something being “off”. The systems that have served us and shown us the way are no longer reliable. Stories and truth have surfaced around the institutions that our world is built on and it’s hard to keep accepting that low price the pawn shop is offering.

 

Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter Conjunction in Capricorn

 

This is all part of the symphony orchestra that is our Universe. Let’s begin with the planet Pluto. This mighty celestial body entered the sign of Capricorn in 2008 where it will remain until 2023. Pluto is the planet of transformation and change. It ushers in these shifts through exposing the truth of a situation. It’s kinda like finding out what’s really in those chicken nuggets and consequently not being able to eat them anymore.

 

Pluto in Capricorn – Power Shift

 

Capricorn energy is the systems, the control, the rules and regulations we are asked to follow. It’s the collective establishment. Pluto in this area of the zodiac means the way we organize as a planet is transforming. This shift has been happening since 2008. Can we think of information that has surfaced since 2008 which has shifted how we see the power dynamics on the planet?

Let’s imagine the structure of power and authority on the Earth as a pyramid. There’s a few on the top who are looking down on the masses holding them up. There is a hierarchy and an order to who belongs where.

Since 2008 Pluto has been eroding this pyramid. Thanks to Saturn and Jupiter joining the party, 2020 is the year the pyramid infrastructure falls on an energetic level. Maybe we’ve heard the astrological hype around the year 2020. It’s got everything to do with Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter coming together in Capricorn and during this New Moon it’s all on the table.

 

Saturn in Capricorn – Stay Awake

 

Saturn’s symbolism is associated with physical reality. It’s energy takes manifestation in a real world way. This means what has been bubbling below the surface since 2008, what we’ve all felt but perhaps not acknowledged, is now in our faces. It’s time to take an honest look at the systems and how we are players in them.

 

Pluto in Capricorn Throughout History

 

The last time we saw Pluto in Capricorn was between 1762 and 1778 when the world saw distinct shifts in power and societal organization. During this time was the American Revolution and America’s Declaration of Independence was written. Further “The Wealth of Nations” was written by Adam Smith and marked the start of modern economics. In a way these historical events represent the enactment of the pyramid structure that is now up for renewal.

 

Jupiter in Capricorn – We have hope, good luck and a chance to turn things around

 

This is overwhelming. This can feel like we are facing Mount Everest with no clue as to how to move forward. This is where we can celebrate the energy of Jupiter. Jupiter is the planet of good luck, serendipity and things working out in a larger than life way. Jupiter is the largest planet of our solar system and its energy is mind blowing. It’s like the fairy godmother turning our pumpkin into a carriage. Of course, we can’t sit back during these intense times and wait for a magical fairy to make it all better. But with Jupiter participating in these alignments throughout 2020 we can have hope.

new earth

That hope comes from learning. If we choose to sit back and stay the same hope will elude us. We have to be active participants in these energies. We have to synthesize with these changing times and a way to do that is to expand our understanding of what it means to be human. Just by reading this article we are doing that. By sharing it with a friend we are creating a ripple effect. By choosing to learn or see life through a new lens we are breaking free from the perpetuation of our unawareness.

 

Mars and it’s Retrograde

 

The energy of this Aries New Moon is also activated by Mars in Capricorn conjuncting Jupiter and Pluto. Mars is the planet of action and its energy is personal. We are feeling these organizational shifts in a very intimate way. This can kick start our survival mechanisms. We can feel as if our safety is threatened and our instincts can be to fight back or defend ourselves.

Action is always a part of the transformations occurring on the planet but these energies call for strategy. Acting impulsively is not the best investment. This is because in November, Mars will be experiencing a retrograde in Aries. All the energy that is coming to the surface right now will be reworked throughout the coming year. This is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. We will be triggered and we will get upset but lashing out is not the answer.

“I have learnt through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmuted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmuted into a power which can move the world”. ~Mahatma Gandhi

 

Aries New Moon Asking us to Create New Ways of Being

 

This does not mean that everything in the physical is going to change over night. However, it does mean that what used to work isn’t going to be able to function as efficiently. It means we need to create new ways of beings, organizing and existing on Earth.

 

Black Moon Lilith

 

Let’s thank the Universe that Black Moon Lilith is connected to this Aries New Moon. She is our innate abilities. She is the force of creation that pulses through each of us. There has been a war on Lilith for centuries. She’s been repressed, locked away and shut out. We’ve been told being an individual means we have to obey and accept certain dynamics on Earth.

black moon lilith

This Aries New Moon and moving into the future let us remember what it means to be human. That we are this sweet spot between heaven and Earth. That we have the capacity to create. We are each here for a reason and we each make a difference. We’ve been sold an outdated version of what it means to be alive. We will receive what we believe and having been told we are powerless, our energy feeds into that. We are then isolated from our own potential.

This duping of humanity is part of a larger plan that has been flying under the radar. Now is the time to call the bluff. Now is the time to remember we can make a difference. Now is the time to reclaim our sense of self. To use our voice. To create and move out into the world as the force of creation that we are.

Change will occur through each of us. It’s okay to feel afraid, it’s a part of the process. We can take time to rest and cater to our needs. But at the end of the day may we know there is a hero’s journey unfolding on Earth and we were made for these times.

Comment below if you can feel the change that is taking place. Are you ready for the New Earth? We are! Sending infinite love and blessings your way. Remember – we are all in this together! -The Moon Omens Team
