Congrats to making it through the Mercury retrograde, this one was pretty intense for a lot of people. What's a better way to end that than at the same time of a new moon!? New beginnings are ALL around, let's see what we can expect in the next couple of weeks.
New Moon Who dis?
Ahh the new moon, the beginning of a new 28 day cycle to START SOMETHING NEW. Seriously, the new moon is the best time to get moving on projects you have put off, try something brand new, or commit to something new that you've been debating. Make the choice to try it!
You can even challenge yourself to try something just for this new moon cycle, just one month- you'll find that soon into this new idea, hobby, mindset, etc. it becomes a habit pretty quick. It doesn't take that long at all to get into a rhythm with something new. This is a great time to try that thing, whatever it may be!
Let this be a new phase for yourself, above all. Don't be afraid to shift into the person you've been wanting to be, the person who values themselves and their talents, the person who doesn't settle for less-than what they deserve, and the person who truly loves the life they lead. You have the tools, the talent, and ideas to do this- get started!
New Lunar Cycle in the sign of Aries
Aries is a fire sign so passion is going to be ignited this month! AND you may also find yourself really wanting to release the things that aren't working for you. You likely got glimpses of this over the last few weeks during the Mercury Retrograde. This fire sign may make it easy for you to burn the past away and begin to forge forward. At the beginning of every new moon cycle a bit of reflection is good, in order to make the best plans for forward movement. Don't be afraid to check in with yourself in the most honest way that you can!
This passion driven sign may have you feeling stepping outside of your comfort zone, try to do this without fear. If things stayed the same all the time things would be REALLY boring, so it is logical that in stepping outside of what is comfortable for you can lead to some really exciting new things you never thought possible!
The Ram is moving us, head first, to where we want to be- embrace this headstrong energy to make progress in your life.
The Truth will come out
In whatever way that means for you. You may have already noticed this happening to yourself or to those around you. Because Mercury goes direct and Aries has us setting ablaze the things that are not necessarily working for us we could find ourselves shifting through some less- than- comfortable situations. HOWEVER do not be afraid to speak your truth and let others do the same.
Being truthful with yourself is also going to be very big as mercury goes direct. A lot of aspects of our shadow selves likely emerged within the last three weeks, things we need to work on came up, parts of ourselves that we might not resonate with came up, now is the time to work on that. As you set intentions this new moon be clear and honest with where you're at and what you need for yourself.
Tarot Insight for the New Moon
Don't let this card scare you! If anything it confirms that new beginnings are upon us!
The death card asks us to embrace what is new and to finally release that which is "dead" in our lives, which likely came about during Mercury Retrograde. I hear spirit say "The truth you can't shake will be staring you in the face until you decide to move through it" as I look at this card.
Though endings can be bittersweet, they are often necessary, there has been so much growth in this year already and there will be more to come.
You will not be able to move forward freely until you release the weight of the past. This "dead weight" can be detrimental at times, and while we think we are looking out for ourselves by being mindful of the past, we often end up repeating it because we are focusing on a problem and not a solution. Your solution is coming, or is already here, try your best to figure out what that is for you and pay attention to it!
This may be an intense time, but let the thrill of new beginnings get you excited! Or just let the fact that Mercury has (finally) gone direct get you pumped!
Happy New Moon Cycle everyone!
Love and Light,
