The new Moon in the first sign of the zodiac sets the tone for the year ahead. It’s an invitation to begin again by refreshing your routine and cultivating a creative vision for yourself. We can make space for expressing ourselves authentically without needing to refine our impulses.
Most of the time, we edit ourselves based on how we want or are expected to be perceived. Aries energy, however, has nothing to prove. It is straightforward, active, and resilient. And as the new Moon is a time for setting intentions, we should resolve to be honest about who we are and what we want without fear of reprisal.
Such resilience in the face of all that’s taking place in the world today may seem like a hard ask. That said, this new Moon occurs in conjunction with Chiron. This planet (in astrology, Chiron is at least as qualified to be a planet as Pluto) is known as the “wounded healer.” It represents the growth associated with confronting personal obstacles and pain. To be fully ourselves, we must uncover deep resources of compassion and apply them to our vision for a constructive, happy future.
Your personal horoscope this week is defined by the new Moon’s house placement in relation to your sign. You should read for both your Sun sign, for the “big picture,” and your rising sign, for “where the work is.”
