The moon phase calendar sees us welcoming in another new moon on April 1st. The first new moon of the astrological calendar, and this falls in the sign of Aries, a fire sign. This marks another poignant moment of endings and beginnings on our calendar. As we move out of the winter phase and into spring. We continue with the theme of fresh starts, new beginnings, and this is a perfect time to start new practices and incorporate healthy habits.
This is a particularly important new moon as it marks the first moon on the lunar calendar. To me it feels like the equivalent of new years eve in the lunar cycle, and the beginning of a new year. All new moons are seen as times to lay out your manifestation plans, and this moon gives us an added opportunity of looking long term as well.
In the darkness of the sky we are able to set our intentions for forthcoming lunar calendar, and for the coming month of April. We can plant seeds and watch them grow as the moon transitions through its first quarter phase towards the Pink full moon on the 20th April, where it will be visible in the night sky.
The zodiac sign of Aries is a fire sign, and fire takes no prisoners. As a Reiki Master and someone who works with energy I can sense the feeling of fire in the air. This is a time to be bold and brave. If there is something you want to do, but fear has held you back, this is the time to unleash the fire within. The energy feels motivated, and purpose driven right now.
This new moon also falls on April 1st, otherwise known as April fools day. Whilst this day is traditionally a day of pranks and jokes, this feels like a sign that it's time to stop fooling around, no more playing games anymore, we will no longer be the fool. The fire energy I feel is supporting us to be confident, and to move forward boldly. It's time to claim our power and ignite our personal fire, and let it rage.
Wishing you all a blessed New Moon, may you find your inner fire and set the world alight.
