Are you feeling a little restless? Do you have the sense that

you're waiting for something momentous to happen although you’re not sure what it is, or why you feel this way?  Your feelings may be in anticipation of the powerful New Moon in Aires that arrives on March 30th at 11:45 a.m. PDT.   Aries the Ram is the first sign of spring as well as the first sign of the Zodiac year. This makes our New Moon on the 30th very important for a couple of reasons.  First, all New Moons offer us a clean emotional slate.  At the start of the new lunar cycle we can make changes to our mindset, as well as to our emotional relationships with ourselves and others.  

Secondly, and most important, New Moon in the fiery action sign of Aries is a harbinger for April’s fantastic astrological power structure.  Consider the 30th to be our staging area, a chance sweep away romantic ideals and emotional patterns that no longer serve us. How we handle this opportunity determines how successfully we’ll manage the rest of the springtime power rush that starts in April.

Aires is a strong, vibrant cardinal sign (first sign of a given season) that carries direct, masculine (or yang energy).  As you use tarot readings for your guidance during the days ahead pay particular attention to cards that call you to act on a situation, or those that caution you against acting in haste.  It is important to use this New Moon to clear your personal debris field.  We have a Cardinal Grand Cross (four planets squaring each other) going exact on April 20th and New Moon in Aires is the fuse to the particular powder keg.  Don’t forget that Mars, one of the components of that Grand Cross rules Aires.  We want to be ready for this one, folks, because ready or not, the fuse has been lit.

patterns.  This New Moon it is important to get in front of the energy flow by taking direct and responsible action.  Let that power rise up underneath you and can ride it. For months we’ve been cautioned to release old patterns and make bold changes by drawing on the transformative energy of Saturn in Scorpio and the Uranus/Pluto square in preparation of April’s Cardinal Grand Cross.  It’s crunch time and if you choose not to act the waves this spring will sweep over you and takes you where they decide, or worse yet, completely over-power you. Remember though, that it’s your choice.  You know where change is required in your own life if you simply take the time to stop and listen to your inner guides and take action.  

Action is key and is the one requirement Aires has for us.  Meditate, ground your energy flow and release the things that burden your mind and spirit.  This New Moon can set the tempo for your success during the next few weeks.  Seize that energy.
