The Sun and Moon enters the sign of Aries on March 24th and begins a new astrological cycle ripe with possibility and potential. This season, remember to hold space for yourself as you alchemise the lessons you’ve gained in the previous cycle, to find yourself embodying new ways of being. This fiery sign of Aries carries the energy of new beginnings, fresh starts and the motivation to create something from nothing. The paradigm is shifting, but we have the power to decide how we are affected. At this moment, we are being called to consider what’s next. How would we like to live from now on? What kind of World do we want to inhabit? Who do we want to be, and how can we be of service to our selves and others? Aries season is the time to create a clear vision of how you want your life to unfold and take momentous steps on that path.
Finding your true purpose is not always easy. It takes a bit of experimentation, a lot of intuition, and discipline. As we go through this season, allow yourself to try out new things, wear different hats and dip your toes in fresh waters. As you test out new experiences, connect closely to how it feels. Your Soul always knows when something feels like home. Allow it to be your inner beacon and show the way to your purpose. Once you’ve found what lights your Soul on fire, then it’s time to make plans to pursue it. Harness the energies of Aries to spur your ambition, and remember that anything you plant this season will grow. Starting on a new path, or even starting over on an old path, takes courage. This Aries New Moon on March 24th, take the time to feel into your fear and then visualise them burning away into ashes. After all, courage is not the absence of fear, but action despite of it.
Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of War. This is apt considering the current experience of our collective humanity. We are at War, not only against a virus, but against the virus of FEAR. The World will be irrevocably changed after this. There will almost certainly be a global recession, and many people will die. It is a dark time for humanity. Now more than ever we need to UNITE in love and kindness, and connect with our inner light. We are forced to take a look at the way we consume, the way we treat each other, and especially the way we treat Mother Earth, Pachamama. We are advised to stay indoors and go inwards, slow down and take care of ourselves. The old ways of being are slowly dismantled and metaphorically burnt to the ground. This Aries season, challenge yourself to walk through the fire, to let go of a system that no longer works, and embrace the turning of the wheel.
This Aries New Moon, we will be working with the energies of the Citrine. The Citrine crystal has also been used as a decorative gem for thousands of years. As early as 300 BC, Citrine was a favourite item for jewelry makers beginning with the ancient Greeks and Romans. Later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria made Citrine popular by wearing it as jewellery. Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the Sun, it is warm and comforting, energising and life giving. It stimulates the Chakras like the sunlight of Spring, clearing the mind and stirring the Soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.
Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed.
