The Aries New Moon marks the Moon's Astrological New Year. Your feminine life impulse and emotional body are renewed and you begin a new emotional cycle.
This is Nature’s time honored New Year that predates history as we know it. What you plant now has the force of nature backing its fulfillment and the return on your investment of time and energy could be massive!
Hopefully, you’ve cleared the way for planting your fresh new ideas and inspirations deeply in the fiery depths of your heart and soul. The Aries New Moon is well aspected which heralds even greater returns on time and energy invested now.
Though there is a caveat to all the positive potential of the Aries New Moon as Venus at 26° Taurus Squares Pluto in Capricorn. Squares represent adjustments are needed. Squares provide a breakthrough opportunity that, if resisted, can feel painful. The purpose of the Square is to fully prepare and open you for making the most of your opportunities at this time. Watch out for holding onto how you want things to happen. Open your mind and heart to the possibility that things can work out better for you if you make a course correction, or let go and change in some way.
Aries rules the 1st house of the zodiac, the beginning of your astrological zodiac chart. Your 1st house represents your persona and how you project yourself into the world at large. This is the mask you wear for the world to see. Most astrologers say the sign on your Ascendent (ASC) rules your entire zodiacal chart.
The 1st house gives clues to how you will operate as an ego mind in the world. Until mid- to late life your natural proclivity will be to project from this house. As your soul matures you will begin to operate more from the center of your chart. When you’re centered at the hub of the wheel of your chart you are more balanced and able to integrate all the aspects and dimensions inherent in your birth chart. But, initially, for most of us we are fairly narcissistic and ego driven to fulfill our ‘me first’ survival needs.
Of course, your conditioning and karmic inheritance also plays a part in how self centered you are and how much you consider ‘the other.’ However, early on our consideration for ‘the other’ may be most often based in our on drive to fulfill our own ego needs.
This is just the human condition until we mature and outgrow the ego mind and become established in our soul which can take lifetimes.
The Aries New Moon offers your ego mind an opportunity to birth a deeper connection and awakening to your soul. This particular Easter tide has brought much potential for cleansing and renewal of your soul life.
Aries ruled by Mars, the planet of war, oversees this house. Mars represents drive and ambition. Your drive to achieve, win and overcome obstacles is ruled by Mars. The Mars energy is strongest in the springtime when the force of nature is strongest for bringing renewal and restoring the cycle of life.
The 1st house represents your physical body’s structure and appearance. So, the sign and planets located here in your natal chart give a clue to your physical appearance and physical drive and stamina.
You’ll also want to look in your personal chart to find out which house Aries is located. You will be focusing a lot your energy in this house throughout your life. For instance if Aries rules your 2nd house then the Aries New Moon event is related to your personal finances. New opportunities may be coming your way that help increase your personal valuation over the next two weeks to six months. New people may show up that help you make needed changes that help you grow your material value. You can also begin new endeavors that are more values driven.
Importantly, the Aries New Moon is leading you to this year’s second Super Full Moon in Scorpio. So, whatever you plant now will get off to a great start. Especially, since the old ruler of Scorpio is the planet Mars. The energy is available for making incredible progress in matters related to your 1st house and the house where Aries and Scorpio are located in your natal chart over the next 2 weeks to six months. This year’s Aries New Moon cycle culminates at the Aries Full Moon on October 20, 2021.
The Aries New Moon meditation will help you make the most of your opportunities available now and includes the best essential oils to use and an EO recipe (see below).

Adjustment and compromise may be necessary to move forward on implementing plans and projects. This can feel like an unwelcome nuisance, or fly in the ointment type event that needs to be dealt with.

Use oils that ground and calm your mind and emotions, yet support passionate expression.

Aries New Moon Meditation
Perform your Meditation anytime starting from the time of the New Moon at 7:31pm PT on April 11th up until the First Quarter Waxing Moon in Leo on April 19th at 11:59pm PT.
What you will need:
- A white candle
- Essential oil or blend - use one of the recommended oils, or blend of oils
Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
Light your white candle and inhale the scent of your essential oil. You can also scent your space prior to your meditation using an aroma diffuser.
Gaze into the candle flame as you begin to breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. The candle flame reflects your own Divine heart center.
Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.
At this time, if you choose, you can invite Archangel Uriel to assist you with your meditation. Archangel Uriel’s name means “God’s Light or Fire of God.” Uriel illumines situations. S/he brings light and dispels darkness from situations that are bogged down and resistant to change. Uriel is the Archangel that helps with natural disasters. Call upon Uriel to protect you from natural calamities and to recover and heal in their aftermath. Uriel is one of the four primary protection angels overseeing the earth plane. She protects the earth element and the North.
Just now with Uranus in Taurus (an earth sign) unstable conditions are prevalent upon the earth. This is amplified by the planet Saturn's encroaching upon Uranus territory with a Square aspect that is stirring up tremendous unrest. Uranus does not like to be controlled and Saturn is beginning to start controlling the change that Uranus brings that peaks in November 2022 when Saturn finally overtakes and begins to control Uranus. There is much tension especially until then. Saturn represents the rule of law and brings justice.
Uriel is the angel of nature, prophetic vision and creativity. S/he purifies your thoughts and purges negativity from your body and emotions. Uriel is the patron angel of all those who work in the field of communication, postal workers and clergy. S/he is an especially mighty presence for you to call upon at this time.
Petition your heart and mind with the following:
Take time between each appeal to drink in and absorb the response by your heart and mind to fulfill your request. Allow yourself the time needed to fully engage in and experience the results of this meditation.
You can make up your own personalized petitions that feel most suitable for you at this time.
- “Help me to see light in the darkness.”
- “Help me heal and recover from past painful events in my life.”
- “Help me move forward in life with renewed faith and courage.”
- “Help me communicate in a way that is unifying.”
- “Thank you for assisting my intuition to fully blossom.”
- “Thank you for always guiding me to be in the right place at the right time.”
Allow the alignment of your heart and mind to bring balance to your life. Allow the renewal of your heart, mind and purpose in this moment. Let go of any worry or concern. Just allow yourself to remain peaceful and calm.
Take as long as needed to complete this meditation. Repeat as needed whenever you feel the need for more insight into current events, or feel the need for guidance about how to proceed in life and the best path forward.
