Aries Season has arrived! On March 20, the Sun shifted into the sign of the Ram, Aries and a New Astrological Year started.
And the first New Moon of the New Astrological Year is on Friday, April 1, 2022, at 11° Aries, peaking early in the morning. This New Moon’s energy is strongest at its peak, but its influence will be strong for a few days. So, schedule time for self-love and Set some powerful Intentions during this cycle.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, & Chiron are all in the firey sign of Aries, now forming a Stellium. It’s a time to start something new, initiate, and strategize. Use this Aries energy, and allow the confidence and directness you’re feeling to get things done.
The Aries New Moon cycle is a time of self-focus and discovery. It teaches us how to be assertive but not overly harsh. Take these potent energies and tackle challenges to discover what your inner courage feels like so you can use it again.
This strong cycle helps us understand our relationship with ourselves and is an opportunity to make improvements and important changes to our lives. Make plans that are solid and realistic. It’s time for something fresh and new, so breathe new life into projects.
Aries is the Zodiac’s first sign, so this New Moon can be beneficial as it offers new beginnings and opportunities. Acting on a hunch or taking a risk might be in our favor, so we may need to go with our gut and impulses and just go for it! But only if we’re not agitated; otherwise, all this Aries energy can make you feel like a hot-head, and you can lose your cool.
The New Moon in Aries encourages us to learn from experiences and actions, so taking a little adventure can be a treat now. It’s a good cycle to discover authentic expression and get straight to the point.
Aries energy teaches all of us how to be happy doing things independently. Relying on ourselves can feel empowering. When we know we are self-sufficient, it brings a sense of inner peace. We always need people in one way or another, but accomplishing things on our own is healing. Through our experiences, we can revitalize ourselves by breaking routines and starting something new.
This New Moon aligns with curious Mercury and occurs when all the major Planets are still direct from Retrograde. Our minds are confident and courageous, and fewer obstacles are in our way.
However, Mars (the ruler of Aries) conjuncts Saturn, and even though we’re ready to work hard, we should pace ourselves because we might be dealing with some fear of not being first. So if we feel rushed, we can be impulsive, which can cause mistakes and accidents. Be mindful of how fast you’re moving, and slow down and pay attention.
The New Moon energies offer us the space for creation without fear. Be sure to take your time and focus on moving forward, as we can get caught up in our heads which looks like acting stubborn, headstrong, and even reckless or immature.
But really, Aries encourages us to be fierce protectors of our loved ones, and sometimes that means not acting rationally or thinking logically. First and foremost, it values loyalty and respect! So we can be extremely passionate and highly
emotional, but also brave and courageous. We want to motivate others, lead people to victory in even the smallest of challenges, and keep things truthful. Keywords for Aries are independent, confident, self-determined, creative, inspirational & victorious.
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and is ruled by Mars, the planet of action, passion, and desires, characterized by war, aggression, and assertiveness. So, finding a balance when working with this explosive energy is important because Aries also embodies the innocence of human beings and how truly vulnerable we are.

This Lunar energy magnifies our New Moon wishes or intentions. Over the next six months, patterns will play out in our lives until the Full Moon occurs in Aries.
Tap into your heart and be true to yourself, and write out a list of what you want to happen in your life. What are your hopes, dreams, and desires? Write them all down. This energy work is called “Setting Intentions.”
Aries is a Fire Sign, so the best way to create something is to write out a list of intentions. Then you can burn them or keep them for a later date. But be careful! We are under extremely heavy fire energy. With so many planets in Aries, anything that causes fire can be dangerous.
We are covered in Aries energy that is extremely potent. It brings about many opportunities for new beginnings. So you don’t want to miss out on this New Moon. It’s just too special. Set new goals, make new plans, act on your hunches, and set intentions. You’ll be glad you did!
Happy New Moon,
Stay Safe & Be Well
