The initiation of a New Zodiac cycle is THE moment to take action!
Collectively we have chosen to start the new year in January. Setting our new year's resolutions to change our habits, start new projects, diets and jobs. Though the time from January to end of March it is still winter. This is the season where energetically go within and are more introvert to discover our inner worlds and get to know the depths of our being. We take the time to listen to our inner voice and needs and from here we can decide what our focus is for our life.
Then we spring comes it is time to take action, show your new projects, start to co-create and make the changes to your diet, habit and way of thinking. This is what nature shows us. As the new leaves grow from the trees, fields are filled with flowers and birds start to sing.
What has been emerging within you during winter and you feel now is the time to start?
Be bold and courageous and stretch beyond what you have ever done before
The astrological new year starts with the sign of Aries. Making it the beginning of the wheel of the zodiac. Therefore when the sun and moon is in Aries we naturally feel activated to start new and do something we have never done before. A time where we feel inspired to bit a bit more courageous than normal to step out of our comfort zone and explore new unknown territories.
What would you like to start in your life for which you need to be courageous?
The season of fire requires a true commitment to inner peace.
Every sign of the Zodiac is connected to one of the four elements. Aries is related to Fire. This means that the coming cycle things can heat up in your life and in the world: Conflict, abrupt endings, fast beginnings and quick initiations. In order to navigate the power of fire it is important to be able to bring yourself to a place of tranquility.
What is your practice or way to be in a state of inner peace? How could you cultivate more peacefulness in your life?
The moment for deep healing so you can move forward in freedom.
This new moon also lights up the aspects of ourselves that trigger us. Only when they come to light we can embrace these aspects and be no longer a slave of our wounds, like abandonment, rejection, shame, inadequacy, low self worth, etc. This is the path to our true freedom. So keep a watchful eye this month and observe your triggers and welcome them as opportunities for deep healing.
What are currently the most triggering aspects of your life, specially around your identity? People, situations? And how do they trigger you? What wound do they trigger (abandonment, rejection, shame, inadequacy, low self worth, unlovable).
Plants are our wise companions. They help us integrate our lessons, give us strength and love to overcome the challenges, raise our energetic vibration and open us up to our wholeness.
