The Aries New Moon takes place on March 21, 2023, at ~1:22 pm ET in the element of Fire.

The new moon in Aries on March 21, 2023, takes place on the same day as the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. With this lunation, we feel the effects of Aries bringing vitality to this new lunar cycle and a new season of fresh beginnings.

The Aries archetype is direct, motivating, and impulsive. With the new moon in Aries, ask yourself, what are you ready to initiate and follow through with?

Where can you invite more movement and courage into your life? 

Don't second-guess yourself. Trust your gut instincts; don't let mental chatter hold you back. Refrain from sweating the small stuff or getting muddied in the details of how you'll get to where you want to be. As the saying goes, "spring into action"!

This new moon in Aries encourages you to be bold, let go of self-doubt, and open up to new possibilities within yourself.

Trust Yourself & Move Forward with Courage

Aries is a great, passionate motivator. Whereas Pisces season gave us dreamy, intuitive, innovative energy, Aries calls for us to *move it* and put the work in. 

Aries, symbolized by The Ram and ruled by The Emperor card in tarot, understands the value of acting on your instincts, initiation and showing up for yourself. The ability to take risks confidently to create true momentum is the power this archetype reminds us we all have.

Progress initiated by instinctual action is the catalyst for transformation. In other words, learning by doing or learning from experience can help us grow more than we ever thought possible.

Let yourself open up to new possibilities within yourself by trusting yourself and moving forward with courage.

Opening Up to New Possibilities Within Yourself

Here are some prompts to pull cards for or journal about (or both!) to help you set the tone for this new cycle. In other words, these prompts can help you see yourself and your life in a new way.

No matter how your personal astrology interacts with these signs, it's a good time to reflect on these themes of initiation, acting on your instincts, and following through.

  • What am I ready to initiate?
  • What risks am I willing to take now?
  • What are my direct and clear intentions for this cycle?
  • How can I overcome limiting beliefs and self-doubt?
  • What does being a fearless leader and good steward look like for me?
  • How can I balance acting on my impulses with being consistent, patient, and receptive to the process of building what’s meant for me?
  • How can I keep myself accountable to follow through with the intentions I’m setting for this cycle?

As always, take your time answering and reflecting upon these questions – you can revisit them throughout the year and beyond this new moon.

For you, being bold and courageous might mean finally putting yourself and your offerings out there to be seen and received by a community of like-minded people. If that resonates with you, I encourage you to sign up for spots in our Healing Resource Directory
