“I focus my attention on what my heart truly desire and manifest myself into being”
When the sun and the moon align we have a new moon, the beginning of a new cycle, where both the sun and moon shine a light on a new aspect of ourselves. This new moon in Aries highlights, our sense of self: our potential, self-image, the way how we approach life, take care of our body, and express our identity.
Zodiac Aspect: Sense of self
Quality: New beginnings, initiation, taking action.
Energy center: Solar Plexus
The initiation of a New Zodiac cycle is THE moment to take action!
With the collective we start the new year in January, writing our intentions for the year to change our habits, start new projects, have fresh perspectives, etc. The time from January to end of march is still the end of the winter. Winter is often a time where energetically we feel supported to go within, discover our inner worlds, be more introvert and get to know the depths of our being. Nature shows us that it is the spring time, by the sprouting of the plants, to take action, to show your new projects, to start co-creating, to make that change in your diet, habits and way of thinking. It is literally that the energy of both the planet and the collective consciousness support you in your new endeavours.
What has been emerging within you during winter and you feel now is the time to start?
Be bold and courageous and stretch beyond you have ever done.
As Aries is the beginning of the wheel of the zodiac. It has this activating energy of new beginning. Something which is new has never been done before. This means we need to step out of our comfort zone and explore new unknown territories and for that we need a bit of courageous.
What would you like to start in your life for which you need 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 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 magic 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 the magic of nature.
Here are some great companions for the Aries Cycle:
Nettle is your company for Cleansing. Emotionally releasing all the anger you have been holding on to. Physically to clean your liver and blood for healthy growth during the spring time. Nettle gets things moving especially if you have been experiencing stagnation.
Lemon Balm a gentle calming of the nervous system during this fiery season. If you do not have an inner peace practice, a cup of lemon balm will do you great favour. Balancing body and mind and transforming your thought from negative into more positive.
