A New Awakening: New Moon in Aries

New Moon in Aries

April 03, 2011

On April 03, 2011, the new moon will enter the fiery sign of Aries at 13 degrees.  This magnificent voiding will take place at approximately 9:32 am EST and 6:32 am PST orbiting at 6 to 8 degrees.

Since Aries is considered as a first fire element; with it brings a great deal of heat.  For many it can be a form of powerful energy that can bring renewal which thrusts people to look at new ways of doing things as well as new risks.  It could also mean that there is a new person inside of you or a new way of looking at your self in the eyes of others.  Aries will bring the light into our spring forcing the summer to come sooner.

The New moon urges to open our hearts to create something new at a slow steady pace.  It sets the ground work for the moon to be brighter as days go by. As the moon becomes brighter in the sky, the force also allows us to look at ourselves with magnifying glasses to examine who we are.  The moons ruler is Cancer therefore; it urges us to associate ourselves with our inner child. The moon also acts as an intermediary between our physical and psychological world.

The new moon in Aries gives us the energy to break the shackles of confinement of anything that has held us back. Liveliness of this moon will give much time to be reborn, restructure, reorganize, and reconsider. The moon will give sufficient energy to get rid of clutter in our home, body, mind and soul. When we clean things we wipe things out of our lives when we reorganize we also get rid of things we horded.  Now its time to get rid of the old and bring new, for many it can be a beautiful healing energy to repair what is torn and let go of pass injuries.

The New Moon blesses new beginnings, and invites you to take a chance! What do you want to create in your life? What vision do you wish to manifest? The New Moon is an asking healing time, and a time to formulate what our needs are according to the opportunities available.

Emotions are right on the surface and immediately expressed. There is a tendency to take charge in emotional situations, leading the way to resolving difficult problems. The psyche antennas are fired up, especially when it comes to emotional matters.  There is a need to nurture others to help them free themselves of suppression.  A greater independence will arise by re-connecting with a motherly figure or older feminine figure to discover the energy and steps needed to free ones self of self-scrutiny as well as paths of destruction.  This is especially intense when Saturn is retrograding in Libra; which could cause a relationship to dynamically change over time.

“Saturn is currently retrograde until June 13.  Saturn retrogrades every year for about four months and during this period events will be emphasized in the sign Saturn is in.  Saturn is in Libra, the sign of relationships, marriage, partnerships and governments, thus we are seeing many events occur in these areas.  During this period people are usually more disciplined in their undertakings and display more resoluteness. Relationships and partnerships will become more defined, either moving forward to a new level, or breaking up completely. If this is the case, the relationship needed to end and allow both partners to seek someone more appropriate.” ~Leslie Hale

The Moon in Aries marks a time of increased activity and purpose. People may feel more passionate and be more vigorous. This is a good time to begin new projects or to try to execute desired changes. Like the charging Ram that represents Aries, people may be inclined to rush forcefully and impulsively ahead without considering the consequences to both themselves and others. Caution needs to be taken to avoid selfishness and quick-tempered behavior. The Fiery Aries Moon brings passion to our emotions, instant reactions, and bravery in the face of any adversary! Give in to the energy…. strive for new beginnings.

There is also a need to change relationships, home, jobs anything that has pushed forced us down; be careful of communication since mercury still continues to be retrograde and the ghost period continues until May 11, 2011, forcing us to slow down and meditate on things before we take into action.  Have a back up plan available for anything you begin or end.  Pluto will also go retrograde on April 09 until September 16, 2011.

Pluto retrograde allows us to let go of thoughts or thinking which are based on inflexible views it will be a time to under go internal transformation looking at who and what we approach our lives within the world we are in.  Anything that is causing your life not to be as prosperous and continues to suppress you, then Pluto will make sure you don’t have.

“Pluto goes retrograde on April 9, at 7 degrees of Capricorn, and doesn’t go direct until September 16. During retrogrades fate or karma will often play out, that is sudden twists and turns in events and situations that seem out of our control. Pluto has to do with power and manipulation and during this time subtle, or not so subtle power struggles often ensue and people can become more manipulative. “Leslie Hale 

“Pluto in Capricorn relates to the earth itself, and business in general, and it is in these areas we will likely see issues of control surfacing. Certain situations among people and entities may seem to disappear into the woodwork but will resurface when Pluto goes direct in September.  Those most affected by retrograde Pluto will have birthdates of March 25-29, June 27-30, September 28-October 2, and December 27-31.  Look for issues to surface in relationships and partnerships, business and matters connected to the home. “Leslie Hale

Aires moon is all about placing boundaries in our lives. Keep things simple.  Nobel and honest ideas will always work out well.  Aries bring bravery yet with blind trust.  Think of this moon as a dreamed vision and canvas is your world use your imagination and began to paint the most beautiful painting you want. But be sure you know clearly what the picture looks like but don’t be self centered. This new moon forces many to center around individuality, self consciousness and gives the gift of all the energy needed to begin a new cycle.

Since, moon in Aries represents Headstrong, Willful; Hot-Tempered, Brave, and Energetic it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced.  This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name one through the wick.  Anoint the candle with lavender oil sandalwood and chant the psalm 39.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Aries moon is:

“Om Suryaya Namaha”

(Om sur-va-ya Na-ma-ha)


This mantra is the dispeller of Darkness and ignorance.

The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance from loosing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.  Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I can”, it must be worded “I can be any one I want to be”

Affirmations for the energy of the New Moon in Aries

I use my impatience and anger constructively … to make positive changes in my life.

I respect the power behind my passions and desires …
and use this energy wisely.

I use my self-assertion to build, manage,
and support the conditions I want in my life.

I offer bold, affirmative leadership to myself
and others with my choices and actions.

With joy and gratitude, I launch my initiative …
to begin the important creations and projects of my life.

This new moon talks about the tugs of heart and soul bring hope and healing, however it is also action-oriented.  It instigates standards in our lives to start something new perhaps a new project or a new relationship or re capture an old one or is that you want your personal freedom now? It is about reinventing rethinking and allow you’re self to let the past go and be excited about what is yet to come. Take a look at what happened during the full moon in Aries September of 2010.

It is time to let go of the ways that were not working those days and release toxic relationships that no longer work by practicing forgiveness and moving on. This new moon bring forth those issues and coming to terms with harsh realities and release because this is one of those things that continue to hold you back.

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a psychic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle or when it affects you in an astrological aspect this is why I recommend that you maintain a good astrologer that you can connect with and speak to them every 3 to 6 months and get an update.

For those who seek my counsel periodically, I would suggest you look over your 6 months in-depth reading of December 2010 and January 2011 and if you are a Cardinal Sign this may be the best time to get an updated reading as to where you stand in the physical, Karmic, Dharma and Destiny transitions.

When there are burning questions it may be necessary to have a reading done more than two times in a month, however with the uniqueness of Vedic reading the faith of the universe is much more reliant.  Which means not to have too many readings done in a monthly basis since Vedic readings does not support co-dependent behaviors or things that are not in moderation.

When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible.  Remember every psychic base all their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy.  The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point.  Never get a reading with your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible.

Always remember every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read.  This is of their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything.

Wishing you the most beautiful journey through this New Moon Aries and I hope your wishes come true.
