The New Moon in Aries
The New Moon in Aries formed at 8°.
Here's what the Aries Lunation chart looks like for this year.
The New Moon in Aries is a double dose of drive, assertiveness, ambition, enterprise, and the dynamic desire to start something new, do something bold, and take risks that might have been overwhelming or even foolish until now.
This is, in many ways, the launching point of action and development for what will unfold over the next year, so plan your shots carefully and aim high.
Consider that perhaps it's better to fall short while reaching for something spectacular than to hold back because you're afraid to take a big enough chance.
(At least that's the advice from here. But then I was born under the New Moon in Aries, and I will not spend my life wondering what would have happened if I'd only been a little braver. That's the spirit to use in approaching your own life this month.) Be wise. Have fun. Travel safely.
