Thursday April 7th marks the new moon for the month of April. New moons are a time of new beginnings and endeavors. This new moon also is a super moon. Super moons are when the moon is closer to our earth. This heightens the energy of the moon, having greater effect on our lives and choices.
This new moon is in the zodiac sign Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and falls around the start of the spring equinox, so the importance of “fresh starts” is strengthened in this moon. Aries are natural born leaders, wanting to pave new paths and cease opportunities. They are individualists. With the new moon in this sign, it is a time to focus on you. What opportunities and avenues do you want to pursue? Want to take up a new hobby? Travel somewhere new? This is a perfect time to do so! Since Aries are also bold, courageous, and full of willpower, it is a good occasion to think BIG! Ready to make a major change in your life? Move somewhere new? Start a new job? With the super new moon in Aries, this energy will help in manifesting these opportunities!
Take this moment to reflect on what new opportunities and endeavors you want to bring into your life. If you are unsure, try sleeping on these thoughts tonight. Dreams are an excellent way for our subconscious to talk to us, telling us what it is we truly seek. Using crystals also allows these energies to blossom and manifest. Here is a grid to assist in the new moon energies of Aries.
