The New Moon in Aries, March 24th, 2020
The first New Moon after the Spring Equinox of March 20th, 2020 falls at 4º12′ in fiery Aries and marks the beginning of a new annual cycle.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and carries the power of initiation, of birth, the initiating spark, the power of Spring and the Light that overcomes the darkness of Winter.
A very powerful moment!
This New Moon asks you to make clear choices and to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of Aries.
This is a strong cycle to re-evaluate the relationship with ourselves and the opportunity to make significant changes in our lives.
Mars, the ruler of Aries, is located at 25º31′ between Jupiter and Pluto and the Southern Node in Capricorn which can lead to frustration, constriction or feeling blocked, mainly over finances, career, domestic circumstances and certainties, things from the past.
The New Moon in Aries forms a challenging T-square with the Stellium Jupiter, Mars and Pluto in Capricorn opposing the Northern Node in Cancer, which indicates a karmic turning point.
This tense square challenges us to get rid of emotional obstacles and unwanted behavioral patterns before we can continue our path.
Getting stuck in negative behavioral patterns can lead to tension in the relationship, fear, guilt, isolation and worries about the future. Letting go of emotional attachment comes with pain and sacrifices.
This New Moon is a new start.
Stick to everything that feels good and intuitively acceptable, but let go of everything else that hinders you from fulfilling your destiny.
Resistance must be resisted, only your own truth must be fulfilled.
During the next four weeks from the moment of this New Moon, new karmic relationships may emerge that will show us the right path.
The New Moon in Aries is between Uranus at 4º45 and Venus at 20º12 in Taurus (Earth) and Mercury at 6º27 and Neptune at 18º59 in Pisces (Water).
The New Moon in Aries is therefore the fiery heart of this "buffer" of Water and Earth.
Earth and Water soften the heaviness of the New Moon.
Venus and Uranus in Earth brings the message that "change is possible" and Mercury and Neptune in Water brings hope and confidence that everything will be all right.
The New Moon is in close proximity to the Neptunian asteroid Salacia, the Healer Chiron and the Saturnal fixed Star Deneb Kaitos.
This conjunction represents pain and suffering from the turmoil of the Corona pandemic and the deep karmic physical and emotional soul pain it exposes, as well as the potential for Chiron's healing powers. Fear, sickness, loss and sorrow are converted by Chiron into Aries into healing, awareness, forgiveness, wisdom, unconditional love, protection, care and healing for yourself and your loved ones.
It is time to take action with enthusiasm and confidence and to (re)discover our own personal courage. With this powerful Aries energy, we have the opportunity to make significant changes in our lives, learn to trust and be happy with our own strength, without blaming others for their own shortcomings.
Anyone with personal planets from 0 to 8º in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer and Libra and Capricorn are most affected by this New Moon.
Blessed New Moon!
