New Moon in Aries 4/1/2022
Friday, April 1, exact at 2:24 a.m./ET/11:24 p.m. PT, we have a New Moon in Aries.
An Aries new moon is a chance to act boldly, courageously, and dive into a new undertaking with pioneering spiritedness.
If you’ve been feeling sluggish or unmotivated since the year began, not to worry, Aries season will get you moving! As the cardinal fire sign of the zodiac, it’s no wonder this is the sign that begins the wheel of the zodiac.
This is a sign all about honesty, assertion, and ambition, which is exactly the kind of energy everyone needs coming out of dreamy, idealistic Pisces season. ♓ 🌊🌈
The emotional meaning of the April 2022 new moon is all about emotional independence. What do you want, and how can you make sure that you get it? 🤔🤷♀️💪
The New Moon in Aries is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project, and discover our own personal courage.
This is a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship with ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the courage to make important changes in our lives.
This New Moon serves as a reminder that there is no such thing as a “self-made” success story. Even within the self-determined and independent sign of Aries, success is most often found by surrounding ourselves with other ambitious people. As you focus on your intentions, take time to appreciate your friends and acquaintances. The collective consciousness has a way of rewarding people who are grateful for those around them.
Conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer, the New Moon in Aries comes with an incredible opportunity for healing.
The universe is asking us to ‘do something’. This is Aries energy, this is a time to take action. We can no longer stay still. We can no longer brush things under the carpet. There is something acute about this energy that requires our immediate attention.
Chiron transits bring us what is called a “healing crisis”.
A healing crisis means that healing is initially preceded by a worsening of the symptoms. However, this temporary sickness is, in fact, a sign that the treatment is succeeding, even if it doesn’t feel that way.
If we want to heal, we first have to bring our wounds out of the unconscious and into the conscious. Of course, once the wounds become conscious, they hurt. But that’s a necessary and unavoidable part of the healing process.
Chiron asks us to pay attention to those parts of us that are or have been broken or wounded.
Finally, there comes a point where we realize that our overcompensating approaches are simply not working. The only thing that works is actually facing our wound, and embracing it. 💝👭🌱
Supported by Mercury and Chiron, the new moon provides the gumption we may normally lack. We will be given the chance to understand what we need to heal from our past in order to march forward with vigor, and we’ll also be able to articulate these needs in deeper and more meaningful ways.
🪐🔥With Saturn and Mars joining on the very same day, the energy suggests it is time to double down and truly commit to your goals. Saturn always wants you to take responsibility for where you are in life and where you want to be.
Mars wants you to pursue your dreams with passion and ambition. Combined, there is a deep call for you to let go of any fears that may be sabotaging your progress and get on with it.
This new moon is especially powerful because it is a Cazimi. Cazimi is a special astrological condition where a planet (the moon in this case) is situated in the heart of the Sun, that is to say, within a degree of the Sun.
The Arabic term kaṣmīmī is translated to “as if in the heart” and this terminology and the impact of such conjunctions have been used as dominant and truly strong points in traditional astrology. Not only does such a time among transiting planets represent the right moment to act on our will, but it also provides us with deep information about ourselves on a personal level. It is considered the right moment to begin something grand!
With this happening on the new moon in Aries, it signifies a time to follow one’s true authentic path. Stepping forward into one’s Warrior Self.
Let this New Moon in Aries remind you of your unrealized potential. Let it remind you that you, my love, can be or do anything you wish. It is time to trust that the universe has your back and ride this glorious energy of Aries and boldly step forward. Happy New Moon!
