New Moon in Aries ~ March 26, ’09
9:06 am PDT ~ 12:06 pm EDT
On Thursday, March 26th we have a New Moon in the fiery, assertive sign of Aries. The New Moon is the time for new beginnings – to take action directed toward what you want to increase, create or call into your life. This is the natural time to begin cycles and undertake challenges, as you are supported by the Lunar energy that rules the tides of the ocean.
This New Moon falls in the sign of Aries and if any sign loves to take action, this is the one! Aries is the warrior, the maverick, the pioneer, the courageous, risk-taking, independent spirit (who can be impulsive and impatient, so be mindful of that). This is the time to step up, take action and be a spiritual warrior in your own life. In which part of your life do you need to be courageous and do something? What is no longer working that needs to change? What do you know you need to do and keep avoiding? The Universe supports your efforts now, so make use of this tremendous energy and be proactive!
“Pearls do not lie on the seashore, if you desire one you must dive for it.” ~ Asian proverb
There is a caveat on this New Moon because Venus is still retrograde, which can affect your judgment regarding values. You should not make a major purchase or commitment during this retrograde period if you can help it, even it if is the New Moon/New Year. Instead, this is the perfect time to get crystal clear about what you want to call into your life and prepare for creating/receiving it.
Create a vision board that contains pictures, art, words, objects that represent the vision you have for the life of your dreams. Dream big – what makes your heart sing? What does your dream life look like? Are you really ready to receive what you long for? In order to manifest your dream you must hold the vision with passion and commitment, knowing that this is for you. Put your vision board in a location that you will see every day to keep the feelings alive and do your New Moon intentions to go along with it!
“And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin
You can expect clearing and/or upheaval in some part of your life because Pluto (transformation/power) is squaring the Sun (ego), Moon (needs), Mercury (communication) and Venus (relationships/money). You may be involved in intense discussions, discover hidden motives, encounter relationship issues, physical/emotional depletion, or money issues. Whatever has been repressed or hidden can be brought to the surface, ultimately for healing (remember that!).
You are being challenged to let go of false beliefs and remember the truth of who you are and what you came here to do – and to have the courage to move forward. Who you think you are will shift as old foundations crumble and you open to a deeper spiritual center within. In order for this to happen you must be willing to surrender, again and again, allowing new parts of your Self to emerge. Watch for the cues (where the struggle is) about what you need to let go of. It can be material things, patterns of behavior, roles and responsibilities, or whatever isn’t working. And you may discover hidden talents that you never knew you had!
“Today I freed a band of butterflies. They flew out of my rounded belly – up, joyously free. What a surprise! Black and orange, otherworldly, almost spirit beings, close to God. And as they left I knew they had once been deadened, cold and brittle things that had lain in me for years, hovering in fear, only awaiting my signal to burst forth into light.” ~ Rev. Malena N.
Regardless of how any given scenario may appear, know that the Universe is providing tremendous support for your evolution and that it only takes away that which is ultimately blocking you from achieving your highest path and purpose. When things are falling apart it can be scary and it’s important to remember that you are being taken care of, even when you may question that based on outside appearances.
