How the New Moon in Aries Will Ignite Our Courageous Side

The New Moon in Aries peaks on Friday, April 1 at 1:26 am E.T. At that time a portal will open and remain open for 48 hours, giving us the opportunity to set intentions and wishes with courage. 



Aries is the first zodiac sign, and the New Moon in Aries is all about new beginnings, self-discovery, self-focus, and independence. This fire sign symbolizes the first spark of creation. So, what is it that you want to create, bring to life, or renew? 

At the time the New Moon peaks, or afterwards, write down 10 wishes or intentions you are setting under the power and courage of Aries. Trust that even without seeing what lies ahead, you are on the right path to see all your dreams become reality. Repeat each wish out loud after you’ve written all 10. Say “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” after each one to show gratitude to the Universe even before your wish has come true. 

Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of our desires, actions, energy, and passion. So, don’t be afraid to be crystal clear about what you want. But be cautious not to air on the side of arrogance, because Mars can also bring aggression, assertion, and war. (Just think: Will Smith at the Oscars. Nuff said.)


Tap into that pioneer spirit under the Aries New Moon, and use spiritual tools to support your journey. 

Some go-to herbs, crystals, and oils for the New Moon in Aries:

Geranium and nettles herbs, a bloodstone crystal, and black pepper and/or orange essential oil. 

You can also mindfully enjoy a nice cup of orange tea or a tea with dried orange peel.

Burn some sage, get cozy, call in courage and confidence, and write down your wishes before speaking them out into the Universe. Watch the magic happen over the next six months until the Full Moon in Aries.
