ARIES NEW MOON 2023
This is the first of two Aries new moons in a row.
One on March 21 and one on April 19 on the 00 degree and 29 degree of the sign, respectively.
We will get two opportunities for new beginnings with the first and second new Moons of the astrological year.
I will talk about the first one – at 1;22 PM EST on 21 March. The Equinox is the day before at 5:24 PM EST.
The year is turning. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Chiron, and Jupiter are all in Aries.
The North Node is conjunct Venus inTaurus.
Saturn, newly in Pisces, makes a harmonious aspect to the nodal axis calling time on the ways we may be maturing and moving more into that which we want to become.
Aries is fire energy. It is called by its instincts to act. It is initiatory Cardinal energy.We may feel a burst of energy and we may want to hop around like a spring lamb. There can be optimism and fun at this new Moon . With its ruler, Mars, in the last degrees of Gemini, we can can get thoughts and actions to sync up. Mars moves into Cancer on 25 March and the feelings may fire instinctive actions and reactions. Being mindful of both can help. Look within to see what needs protecting and what you want to show in the light of day.
On the 23rd, Pluto moves into Aquarius. This is the first time in 245 years – since 1778. Revolutions abounded at that time. People were involved in the political process and of how they chose to be governed. It would be advisable to join in with our country and communities now in whatever way we feel so moved and are able. Aquarius is community minded. It rules friends and brilliant ideas that can be put into action. May this be true for us now. Pluto will retrograde back into Capricorn on 12 June for the rest of 2023 and beyond, so planting seeds of unity and participation can be made with loving intent for the next couple of months. Pluto will also be squaring the moon’s nodes for the next year or so. Pluto is the evolutionary intention of the soul and the nodes plot the course for the personality. With this aspect, the opportunity is to square up the soul business with that of the personality business. In other words, any disconnect between the soul’s desire and the actions on the earth plane is best amended. Are we acting in alignment with our values? The North Node is in Taurus and the South is in Scorpio. Are we investing our time and money in activities, people, and companies that align with what we think is right? Are we sticking with some of them out of convenience and habit when we know in our hearts we could find another way?
It is time to get the values, the ideals, and the actions to line up. Each of us has our contribution that can be made to the events and restructuring of our personal and societal lives. We can makes some calls, plant some carrots, explain an issue to someone who has questions. We can meditate to raise the vibration. This is a good use of Saturn in Pisces energy- getting the body in sync with All That Is. It will help us to see more clearly how to proceed on a moment to moment basis. We can hold the vision for equitability and fairness. Those are two values I happen to like. What are your faves? It is time to align ourselves with that which we really want for ourselves and our earthly home. The help is there. The expansion can be made. The optimism comes with Aries in the spirit of new beginnings – that we can shift energy and start again – and again – to tune in with what we want and the beauty of how things can be. Happy Aries New Moon! Happy Astrological New Year! Feel the instincts and new birth desire energy rising up and leap. 🐏 ❤️🔥♈️
