New cycle and an invitation to solidify identity, embrace fearlessness and align with values.
New Moon is when the sun and moon join at the same place in the sky. Signalling the beginning of a new lunar cycle, it is also symbolic of the masculine (sun) coming together with the feminine (moon), giving birth to new life, intentions, cycles and growth.
The energies can be utilized and experienced individually (setting of intentions and beginning new cycles), but also collectively and within the realm of physical creation. For centuries, farmers have been utilizing the permaculture technique of growing with the moon. The moon is *that* powerful.
This New Moon is happening in the sign of Aries, which is the first sign of zodiac and the beginning of the zodiac wheel. Ruled by Mars, it’s symbolic of the blast of consciousness when spirit enters body and says “I am.” This is the sign of identity.
Putting those together - general themes of new moons + themes for Aries - we now have a new cycle that is associated with our identity.
Now we look to the other aspects occuring in the sky at the same moment.
The sun and moon join together at 11 degrees of Aries. They are sandwiched right between Chiron (our wound and place of vulnerability) and Mercury (the planet of communication).
While Pisces season was about transcendence and closure - spirit leaving the body, Aries season is about beginnings. Sometimes a fresh start requires a clean slate, meaning Aries moons can first manifest as a destabilizing event. However, it's all designed to serve as a catalyst for growth.
This new moon is an invitation to solidify our identity and align with our core truth. While showing us that our pain isn’t something to run from, rather something to move towards and through. Our pain and vulnerabilities needn’t define or limit us, but rather guide us through a journey that defines our strength. Absence of pain, fear and vulnerability isn’t what makes us strong - it’s what we do with and despite of carrying those very things.
In the sign of Aquarius, we have Mars (ruler of Aries and ruler of this new moon) conjoining Saturn (restriction and mastery), asteroid Juno (commitment) and Venus (values and love) - inviting us to lean on those strengths and commit to our newly solidified identity and core truths. In doing so, this new beginning will receive the blessing of a sextile from asteroid Vesta, which represents our deepest devotion and fire within.
I hope you devote to yourself, deeply.
This new moon occurs in Human Design Gate 21, Biting Through, also called Gate of the Hunter/Huntress. Which signifies the justified and necessary use of power in overcoming deliberate and persistent interference.
In the 3rd line, Powerlessness, it is asking us to notice where we are admitting defeat and feeling powerless. Gate 21 connects to Gate 45, and creates the Channel of the Money Line. Those with Gate 45, now have greater access to the energies of that channel, but likely everyone has money on their mind.
Money isn't simply a resource for the exchange of goods - money is an energy. One that directly relates to our security, well-being and what we deem of worth and value. Therefore money is deeply correlated with our sense of self-worth and value - both in terms of what we value, and in how much value we believe to hold or carry. Which in turn reflects our identity. It's an energy that allows for one to attract and maintain wealth, and in doing so, not only take care of themselves, but others.
Questions to ask self and journal prompts:
Who am I?
Am I confident in my ability to express myself and my opinions?
Ways to utilize the energy:
Initiate a powerful new beginning.
Affirm your identity and reality; create powerful “I am” statements.
