New Moon in Aries and the Astrological New Year – ‘Skeleton Key’

New Moon in Aries and the Astrological New Year – ‘Skeleton Key’

Sunday, April 15 is the New Moon in Aries, AKA the Astrological New Year. This date is the most potent time of the year for making wishes, manifesting, and cultivating new possibilities.

There is a portal before you. Open, black, silent, depthless. It holds your dreams, memories, fears, and boundless potential. You are staring into the doorway of the New Moon. The promise is more fruitful than than fearful, if you are willing to step into the darkness.

Only on the other side will you be truly illuminated.

The Moon rules our yin/feminine aspect — that which accepts, gestates, creates. Under the New Moon, we are open the most open and ready to receive. This time of darkness and mystery is fertile, an entrancing unanswered question — what will you become when you draw down the Moon?

When the Moon is New, she moves into the sign of her consort and counterpart, the Sun, “shedding light” on what has been hidden from us, on patterns that began with the tangle of our roots. A new cycle begins.

We feel more united within ourselves, sure and confident. Our intuition, the transformative power of our feelings, is illuminated, at its most accessible — and actionable.

This aspect heralds a new four-week cycle and the Astrological New Year, so it’s an ideal time to commit to self-improvement routines, begin new projects, or re-commit to them, and lay the groundwork for long term goals.

In exuberant, courageous Aries, the first and most pioneering sign in the zodiac, this New Moon is the ultimate time of rebirth, vitality, and triumph in the face of seemingly impossible odds.

Aries is the seed which, heedless of danger, restless of rest, shatters its shell to push through the earth and exert itself in the world. The portal beckons. We are being born again.

Aries rules new beginnings, self-discovery, initiations, independence, authenticity, and taking action. Aries trusts his instincts, acts on impulse. Aries is honest, raw, the first to the top of the hill, the one who shows everyone else how it’s done.

Under this New Moon, we are meant to invoke our inner “Holy Fool,” the one everyone stares at, agape, until they reset the limits of human potential.

It’s time to live and love with reckless abandon, to run full tilt at your windmills, not pausing to worry about scraped knees or others who might scoff at your quest from the safety of their homes.

What do you dream? What makes you want to shout, dance, explode your art, will, and spirit into the world?

Aries offers you a gruff, girding slap on the back. Don’t worry. Do. Action is the remedy for stagnation. Don’t make it perfect. Just make it.

The New Moon has joined forces with revolutionary Uranus —  the ruler of rebellion, sudden change, and global evolution — in challenging power-playing Pluto, the ruler of the establishment, authority, the “old guard.”

We can feel and see the upheaval in the world around us: enormous institutions, governments and corporations (all under Pluto’s purview) radically challenged by the will of the people (Moon conjunct Uranus).

We sense the need for independence, freedom, and radical change (Uranus), both on a global level, and on a personal one. Internally, we must face our most monolithic oppressors: issues around power, domination, money, addiction, and manipulation.

We are forced to recognize our bonds before we can break them, to see where we may have, indeed, placed ourselves in bondage.

If you wake up in cuffs, do you ponder how they got there, or do everything in your power to RIP THEM OFF? Aries — his smile gleaming as bright as the hacksaw he’s carrying — invites you to embrace your instincts and see where they lead.

Under the New Moon, we are invited into a New World. Within and without.

The door is open…

 

What intentions will you be setting for the Astrological New Year? I will free myself from self-limiting fears and analysis paralysis, and embrace my inherent instincts and gifts — I will light my way and live my way, and always work to help others do the same. May these insights and inspirations ever be for your highest good!

TAURUS

Take a deep breath, Taurus, and breathe it out. Let your shoulders drop, and just give yourself a few seconds of silence. Let thoughts be ripples on the lake of your mind.

You may feel a conscious urge to stay in, or to arrange some self-care, which would be wonderful instincts to follow.

It’s time to recharge your batteries before we enter Taurus season, when you will be coming out, guns blazing.

VIRGO

It’s time to empower yourself, Virgo, to step fully into the true depths of your abilities.

CAPRICORN

You won’t find it out there, Capricorn. “It” being satisfaction, fulfillment, success, et. al.
