New Moon in Aries
April 10, 2013
On April 10, 2013 at approximately 5:35am EST and 2:27am PST we will bring fresh ideas and vigor through the New Moon in Aries. This new beginning will transform all those who are born in the later sign of Aries, especially those 15 to 20 degrees, depending upon the orb. This is the beginning of something new that could have ended during the Harvest moon on September 29, 2012; read more about it here.
By the time this moon has arrived we would have already passed the Spring Equinox but spring season came a little later for many as did the spring projects. If you have not begun your projects, this new moon will give the energy to do so; including the force needed to do things differently where things are not as balanced. Which means anything thing that is not working will be forced out or given guidance and strength to change.
This will be just the energy that is needed for many before the Partial Lunar Eclipse enters our atmosphere on April 25, 2013. Look for more information about this transformational event after the 10th of April 2013.
With all the mix of energies that was felt in March, Pluto the planet God of transformation, ruling planet of Scorpio which has been in Capricorn, will be retrograding until beginning April 12 through September 20, 2013. During the retrograde period we are always advised to follow of a path of self-reflection and Pluto will force anything out that does not belong or meet our needs. It’s almost as if there is a spark of energy to clean house (in our lives). It is time to have better control of things we can control which are in areas of other people’s money or professionalism. Addressing the issue of how communication affects the area of professionalism and how or why we react so defensively when we feel attacked. Pluto retrograde focuses around conflict resolutions and how we can make changes that better our inner circles.
The new moon gives opportunity to put new things into action. The energy is powerful enough to give the incentive that one needs to make the right choices. Small changes will be the trigger to bigger changes and taking chances will be blissful. It is a time for manifestation, planting seeds and making strategies.
When the moon is in Aries there is no time to think; rather it is geared towards taking action and making sure needs are met. Aries desires passion and fire. In the same respect, there is a need for individuality, poise, and temperament. There is a desire to take charge of emotional situations to resolve right away. Due to the nature of Aries, independence is shared and a motherly figure will distinguish objectivity through discovering one’s self with high vigor.
The Moon in Aries marks a time of amplified accomplishment and ambition. People may feel more zealous and be more energetic. This is a good time to begin new projects or to try to apply chosen transformation. Like the charging Ram that represents Aries, people may be inclined to hurry robustly and spontaneously without considering the magnitudes to both themselves and others. Forethought needs to be considered to avoid narcissism and hot blooded behavior. The Fiery Aries Moon brings enthusiasm to our emotions, instant reactions, and bravery in the face of any opponent! Give in to the energy…. strive for new beginnings.
Since the moon in Aries represents spontaneous, tenacious, snappish, courageous, and enthusiastic tendencies, it is my suggestion for us to remain independent. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name 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 dependent 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 mantra 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 oblivion and unawareness.
The intention of this mantra is to keep one 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 begin with “I can”, they 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 intolerance and anger beneficially … to make constructive changes in my life.
I respect the influence behind my passions and desires … and use this power prudently.
I use my self-assertion to construct, control,
and maintain the circumstances I want in my life.
I offer courageous, positive guidance to myself
and others with my choices and measures.
With delight and appreciation, I launch my inventiveness …
to begin the vital creations and projects of my life.
This new moon will yank soul and spirit, bring faith and healing. However, it is also action-oriented. It instigates principles in our lives to start something new. Perhaps a new project, a new relationship or bring back an old one, or is it that you want your personal freedom now? It is about reinventing, reconsidering, and allowing you to let the past go and be eager about what is yet to come.
It is time to let go of the ways that were not working and release venomous relationships that no longer work by focusing on tolerance and moving on. This new moon will bring forth those issues by forcing one to come to terms with harsh truths and releases. These issues are the things that continue to hold you back.
Please note that I am not an astrologer; rather a Vedic reader and astrological venues are the groundwork utilities needed to enhance Vedic reading. It is my recommendation that after you have spoken to me that you contact my recommended astrologers: Leslie Hale or my recommended advisers under my useful links here, for the best advice possible before the eclipses and begin to make transformational changes which you are not aware of.
Remember, an Astrologer tells you what could happen while Vedic readings give direction to what you can do about it. Vedic readings will NOT tell you what to do; rather, tell you the forks ahead to be able to make the best decision which is honorable to all.
May this moon bring you the energy that you need to begin new things and be inspired to be creative.
