The Aries New Moon is on Tuesday March 21 2023 at 1:23pm. It is an ideal time to set intentions and make wishes on new beginnings, independence, and self awareness.
What is a New Moon?
The Sun and Moon are together again in the sign of Aries. When the sun and moon are together in a sign (conjunct) it means the moon is starting a new cycle and that happens on March 21st, 2023 at 1:23pm ET.
Each NEW MOON offers an opportunity for us to plant seeds of intentions that we can nurture and grow each new moon cycle.
A new moon cycle happens every month when the moon meets up with the sun in the sky. I call this a "moonth"
When the moon is in Aries there is a collective need to be independent and develop our authenticity by taking courageous action towards our goals and intentions. We feel an urgency to focus, initiate, and set boundaries.
What is Aries about?
Aries is a fire sign which corresponds to creativity, identity, actions, and personal will. Aries embodies fire energy in the form of a shooting star. Have you ever seen a shooting star? The first time I saw one I felt inspired and energized. I was in awe. Tapping into Aries energy is like that. It brings out our inner leader to assertively take responsibility for our lives and actively design the life we want.
When is the Spring Equinox?
The spring equinox kicked off the astrological new year when the sun went into Aries on March 20th 2023. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and the Aries new moon is the first new moon(th) of the astrological year. It is a powerful time to set intentions and to take on a leadership role in your life. The equinox is also the start of a new season. Aries heralds the rebirth of the trees, plants, and flowers. It calls in the Spring. We are leaving Winter behind and embracing Spring.
