Can you feel the shift? It is April, my loves, and Luna is ready for a breath of fresh air. The New Moon rises on April 11th or 12th (depending on your time zone) and it’s carrying some powerful energy for manifesting our desires and new beginnings. Aries is a Fire/Cardinal sign governed by hot blooded Mars, so if you have been procrastinating on making some changes in your life, this moon should give you that drive to move forward. The sign of the ram is all about desire, passion, instinct and letting that fire move you forward. With four planets also in Aries, the energy will be even
stronger…our powers of manifestation heightened and our ability to draw in and attract what we desire enhanced threefold. But be vigilant…Mars, after all is the Roman God of War. You might want to think before unleashing the Aries arrows of pure fire.
When the moon is new, you can barely see it, and the sky can appear black. New moons are an ideal time to do shadow work or acknowledge our dark/shadow selves that we typically like to keep hidden. The light draws what was hidden in the subconscious mind into the conscious mind so we can shake it up and make some positive change. Recognize what your mind is telling you.
I have always thought of the moon’s phases linked to the ocean’s tides…the tide is pushed and pulled by the phases. As women closely aligned to the moon and sea, we can best utilize the power in both by flowing with the rhythm of the moon in each of its phases. For this new moon try a little bath magick in that giant cauldron in your home. Water and salt are inherently cleansing, so run a bath, add some sea salt, your favorite essential oil blend and some crystals. Light a candle and climb into the tub. Just let yourself be. This is where the healing begins. Tune into all of your senses and feel the quiet energy of the new moon.
until next month moonlovers…peace & love
