Early on March 24th, at 5:28am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Aries. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle; anything brand-new started in the next two weeks has the chance to get off to a great start. Click here to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

The New Moon in fast-paced, enthusiastic, and courageous Aries asks us to connect to our personal goals and get very clear on what we want to create over the next 28 days. This is an action-oriented New Moon, with the focus on ourselves; we want to speed things up — it’s a “do now, think later” energy.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; as such, it represents new beginnings, initiation, breaking new ground, birthing new forms. An Aries New Moon is thus an especially fertile time for seeding new projects and directions.

That said, we can’t know what will happen when we start something brand-new — something we have never done before — and this can stir up insecurities and nervousness, sometimes maybe plain fear, or even panic.

Aries and its ruling planet Mars, correspond with the quest to develop courage — not fearlessness, but the conscious choice to act in spite of fear — some call this the “Warrior Energy”.

One of the many ways we can demonstrate courage is to allow ourselves to be in the condition of “not knowing” or “beginners mind”; at these times, we are more present, and creative potential is heightened.

Ask yourself: Where could I bring a “beginner’s mind” to bear? Where do I need to let go of needing to know everything before I begin?

New Moon in Aries aligns with Chiron (the Wounded Healer); this presents an opportunity to share our individual approach toward gentler leadership, and inspire others to engage in a healing process around the masculine “yang” energy — to do some healing around…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-6 degrees of either Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some intentions for this month’s Moon cycle — this process is especially powerful with the New Moon in Aries — and as always, is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact  (and definitely not during a Moon void of course)

So this month, we have almost 46 hours to set intentions: between 5:28am on March 24th and 3:16am on March 26th (as always, all times are EDT). For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter as I post reminders on March 24th, and 25th throughout the day, and on March 26th in the early morning, to let you know when it is the most potent time to set your intentions 😉
