The New Moon in Aries on March 30th, 11:45 am (PDT) is the New Moon for seeding our new intentions. It is the New Moon that kicks off the astrological year, and we can all tap into this outgoing thrust of cross-the-threshold energy. This is the time to plant seeds, till the soil of your imagination, and create! This is Rebirth time. Shed your old skin, and emerge shiny and new. Turn over a new leaf, and arise refreshed and renewed. It's never too late to start, and today marks the place where we can all be innocent again. Be who you truly are, the authentic you. We're all waiting for your debut - we NEED you! Whether you are just beginning to quietly unfold, or preparing your grand entrance, the time is now to step forward. You will be supported.
In Joseph Campbell’s archetypal Hero’s Journey, Aries resonates with "The Call to Adventure". It is the newborn (or re-born) soul at the beginning of the Journey of the spiritual lessons of incarnation. In the Tarot, I liken Aries to The Fool, or “the Innocent”, stepping forward without any sense of fear, and a quality of pure childlike optimism. In order to understand any astrology archetype better, it’s helpful to meditate on the qualities of the season. Aries is the onset of spring: brave, initiating, fresh and sometimes a little foolhardy. It’s rarely talked about in Astrology circles, that Aries is also (like the new growth of spring) vulnerable, sensitive, and trusting. Even when Aries comes on strong, and seems full of characteristic bluster, it’s usually from a place of guileless exuberance.
