April's New Moon in Aries is Healing
There is strength in vulnerability.
New month, New Moon, new energy. The month opens up with an excellent opportunity to start new and exciting things, heal ourselves, and help others on their healing journeys.
Our fourth New Moon of the year, and the first of the astrological new year, takes place on April 1st in the sign of Aries, and it will allow us to take action and be vocal about our vulnerabilities and wounds.
I know what you're thinking. That sounds painful, weak, and very un-Aries-like.
Aries is a sign of brute force, conflict, passion, and ambition. Ruled by Mars, Aries is the warrior ready to defend what they love.
Here's the thing, though...being strong isn't just about physical strength; our emotions play a part in that as well. This New Moon is all about showing us how being emotionally vulnerable and addressing our weaknesses actually contributes to our overall strength.
At the same time, this New Moon is like a firecracker of action-oriented energy that will allow us to plant seeds that will grow into some pretty amazing things.
Let's take a deep dive into this Aries New Moon.
Astrologically speaking, New Moons are when the Sun and Moon are conjunct, meaning they occupy the same space in the sky.
When this happens, the energies of both luminaries mix together. The Sun represents our ego and conscious mind, and the Moon represents our emotions and subconscious. During the New Moon phase, we typically experience a time of complete awareness of our entire selves, inside and out.
The New Moon signifies the beginning of the lunar cycle; seeds are planted, and intentions are set. The slate is wiped clean, and so are we.
New Moon in Aries
The Sun and Moon will be conjunct at 11° Aries.
Aries energy is bold, dynamic, initiating, and aggressive. This is the exact type of energy you want to have for a New Moon, as it will give you that kick in the ass you need to get moving and motivated.
Be courageous and fearless with your intentions. Start something new and exciting.
New Moon Conjunct Mercury and Chiron Brings Healing
Specifically, being vocal about our wounds and vulnerabilities will be cathartic.
Chiron is an asteroid and is known as the "wounded healer." It is in acknowledging and healing our wounds that we can help heal others.
While this New Moon is all about taking action toward new and exciting things, it also calls us to address our emotional health. In doing the necessary healing, we can make space for all the wonderful things to come.
Mercury is the planet of communication and ideas. So, thinking about, addressing, and sharing the emotional parts of ourselves are significant components of this New Moon.
Jupiter Conjunct Neptune Allows Us to See the Big Picture
Jupiter and Neptune are occupying the same space in the sky. Both are in their home sign of Pisces, which means that their energies are not only combined but are super potent.
Jupiter expands, and Neptune ignites our imagination. This incredible synergy allows us to see past minute details and focus on the bigger picture.
This is key if we're talking about manifesting something new and exciting. Not only do we have the motivation to do so (thanks to Aries), but we can also see the forest for the trees and be optimistic about it.
