New Moon in Aries 30th March 2014 at 7.45pm UK
The beginning (and continuation) of the growth process
This New Moon is in Aries, which makes it a powerful time to have a new start. Whatever you focus your attention on this month, will get an extra dose of determination, action and direction. The Aries New Moon connects in to an ongoing tension and dynamic that is already playing out in the world (and in your life too), therefore, this New Moon has a very karmic quality in helping you to heal the most raw situations currently in your life. There aren’t any guarantees of success, but this New Moon’s energy is perfect for ‘change, growth and sudden (and surprising) advance learning’.
Cleansing flame or ravaging inferno?
The theme is a potent one which sets April ablaze. I will be writing separately about the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon), The 23rd April, and the April New Moon later on. Suffice to say, the messages here will build up, and by this time next month, some karmic patterns are sure to have played out in your life. The New Moon is connecting powerfully with Uranus and this creates an energy of change, disruption and freedom. This is a great month to LET GO OF LIMITING BELIEFS, BEHAVIOURS AND LIFESTYLES!
Cutting away decisively
Aries energy is very go-getting, me-first and decisively active. If there’s a project underway, Aries energy can ignite motivation, trail blaze and push forward unafraid of the consequences. Aries energy acts first and thinks later. We all need to be gutsy from time to time; to make a brave decision, and move forward.
The heavenly menu for April is spicy, hot and could make your eyes water. With (ongoing and building) tensions between Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars – it’s like there’s a pungent, compulsive peeling of an onion – where hidden layers of control will be revealed. It’s an ongoing ‘big reveal’. I imagine that where people have been ‘shoe-horning’ themselves into a particular image or lifestyle, that ‘the metaphorical onion’ will just be messages to you from yourself. These hidden truths will rock you to the level of how truthful you’ve been with yourself. If you’re living in line with your truth, then it probably won’t be so shocking (more motivating and energising), but where you’ve been playing hide and seek from yourself it’ll be…….’coming ready or not!’.….so either find a really good hiding place, or just give up and start a new game while you’ve still got some control.
Big reveal? Hey I’m ready to shine……
If you’ve been hiding a talent, skill or passion for a long time, this month could be one the marks you letting go of the limiting beliefs that made you hide your brightness. Whatever you identify as holding you back, you can move away from this month. April energy will be useful to get this moving for you. April can build your confidence.
I’ve outgrown my life! Does that count?
Yes it does. Good for you to recognise where you might be limited. Now’s the time to gracefully and peacefully implement plans to move on – whether it’s to a new job, new home, new country or even to a new marital status. make your plans now, and take steps closer to your greatest freedoms. With Venus in Aquarius, there’s a cooling detachment energy that you can connect into if you need it. You can find unattached, impartial support in so many places right now.
The clue to April is to know which side of the emotional fence you’re on and identify your resources. Where are you well resourced? and where are you floundering? Are you feeling great and motivated? What truth are you hiding from?
Desperate to keep moving forward at a pace?
If on the balance of it all, you’re feeling fighting fit and raring to get to work on something, this month ahead could be a groundbreaking one for you, where you create new pathways for yourself out of the rubble of the old you. There’s a big chance to re-create and free yourself from old restraints and limiting beliefs. There will of course be frustrations when things slow, or when you come up against other people’s limits for you, which is why I’d recommend working independently as much as you can. It will free you up to really be authentically you.
Trying to hold it all together?
If this feels more like you right now, then I’d advise you take some time out in April. The energies throughout this month are primed for response, offense, attack and breaking free. If you’re already at breaking point, this month might be the one to break the metaphorical camel’s back. If you’re confident that any trouble you get in, you can apologise out of later, then it’s not so bad, you might find a big ruckass is what you need to clear the air. But if you’re already living in a tense and uptight way, it’s best to rest up, do something you really enjoy and wait for the dust to settle in May.
With the New Moon applying to Uranus, there’s a surprisingness to the whole month ahead. When you see where the dust settles it might help you to make those all important decisions. It also looks like there’ll be lots of new information and evolution coming at us all throughout April, that could be a game changer.
Mars, which is still just conjunct the North node, is also asking you to remember what purpose / action it was that you came here to do. Have faith in your abilities, that you can find the strength to do just this – DREAM BIG!
