Happy New Moon in Aries!
This is the first New Moon of the new season and holds some powerful transformative energy!
This Planting Moon cycle begins in Aries, the first sign of the Astrological Year; making this a very powerful New Moon for planting something new.
If you missed your New Year's Resolution, now is your chance to establish some powerful new intentions!
The Sun has also moved into Aries, giving us all a sense of a rebirth and preparation. In the Northern Hemisphere we are emerging from the depths of Winter preparing to build something new. Our friends In the Southern Hemisphere are preparing for the rebirth that their Winter might bring.
We have put together this New Moon Energy Report based on the lunar, astrological and seasonal energies ahead. We also drew a card from the Spirit de la Lune deck for each turning, to provide deeper insight into Lady Luna's messages and lessons.
Grab a cup of tea, & read up on the cycle ahead.
What is it that you are planting?
New Moon in Aries on March 27
The New Moon in Aries occurs on the 27th of March.
A New Moon in Aries brings forth some exciting energy. Aries are known for their zest, fiery drive and "yes" attitude. But it's important to remember that New Moon's are not always about action. This New Moon may be asking the Aries in you to practice your patience and deliberation.
Because this New Moon in Aries is conjunct to Retrograde Venus in Aries, we may have some aspect of our relationships tested.
The Aries energy is very potent right now, aside from Venus; Mercury, Uranus, the Sun and the Moon are all in Aries right now!
Remember that words are seeds, and the ground is very fertile right now. Be careful how you react in the beginning of this lunar cycle. Watch your responses, and be careful how you react when triggered. It's just not worth it to stir anything up or say something you will regret later. Practice control in the present moment to avoid damage control in the future.
The Card pulled for this phase is the Focus Card.
Aries energy is very spontaneous, and since we have several planets in the house of Aries right now, it's important to keep a focused mind.
Aries is also a sign of will power and action. Use your focus of thought and your will power to help pave way for the action to be taken later. This New Moon is a time of preparation, and feeling into the new energy without doing anything too sudden.
All of the rash spontaneous energy may feel like it's testing you. Remember to tap into your Will and focus during this New Moon. Make some intentions, and keep your mind's eye focused on what you want and where you are going.
First Quarter Moon in Cancer on April 3rd
The First Quarter Moon takes place in Cancer on April 3rd. Cancer brings in increased emotions, imagination and a sense of vulnerability. While the First Quarter Moon ignites our energy, the sign of Cancer might be asking you, on a personal level, what you want to ignite.
You may feel pulled to stay home, to avoid large groups of people and to only interact with those closest to you. Listen to your intuition. This energy may have you putting some of that New Moon Energy into creative action!
The card pulled for this phase is the Create card. Begin creating something physical to do with your goals and intentions. Now is the time to begin taking steps. Create a vision board, set up an altar, take any small creative action towards your goal. The fiery energy of the First Quarter Moon paired with the intimate energy of Cancer is asking you to dig deep into what you can create for yourself and your family.
Full Moon in Libra and Scorpio on April 11th
The Full Planting Moon takes place on April 11th, in the signs of Libra and Scorpio depending on where you are.
This is a time of fulfillment and gratitude for the steps we have taken so far.
The Planting Moon Reminds us that there is still progress to make.
The ground is still fertile for the seeds of your intentions, and great care must be taken in the garden at this time.
Don't allow weeds to creep in, and don't forget to give your mind's garden plenty of love
Don't forget to check the blog on the 10th of April for the Full Planting Moon Ceremony!
The card pulled for this phase is the Taurus Card. The Taurus Card is also known as The Lover card. Being an Earth Element, this energy is all about nurturing growth. This could be asking you to take time in your physical garden connection with the Earth. Or perhaps give your mind's garden some extra love and attention. Meditate on your intentions, get rid of the weeds and self doubts you might have. Show yourself extra love on this Full Moon. Be thankful for how far you have come, and eager for what lies ahead.
Last Quarter Moon on April 19 in Capricorn and Aquarius.
The Last Quarter Moon takes place on April 19th in the sign of Capricorn and Aquarius depending on your location.
The Last Quarter Moon helps us wind our energy back down, and prepares us for the internal shift the New Moon will bring. You may feel your intuition and instincts heighten as you turn inward and reconnect to your self.
There might be a sense of tying up loose ends and finishing up tasks, especially with the influence of this Capricorn energy. Now is the time to take on any responsibilities you've been shirking, and prepare for anotherlLunar cycle.
The card pulled for this phase is the Connect Card. With Venus out of retrograde, you may be feeling pulled to reevaluate your social connections. Hopefully there won't be anything that needs mending or re-connecting, but now is the time to make amends and establish healthy connections with your loved ones. This energy may also be asking you to tie up loose ends within your personal or work correspondences as well. As the energy shifts back to New Moon, you are also asked to connect with your Self.
Don't forget to charge your decks and crystals tonight. This is a very potent and powerful New Moon for intention setting, preparation and releasing.
