New Moon in Aries – Time for “I”

New Moon in Aries – Time for “I”

Aries New Moon

March 24th 2020/ 9.28am (UK time)

These past few weeks have shown us both our vulnerability and adaptability. It has been a tough time for people who have to keep going to work, for those who have lost their jobs or salary,  those with anxiety and for children who are being told not to go out or mingle with their friends. We have seen the dark side of humanity – the greed and the lack of empathy for the vulnerable by stockpiling food and essentials, not following the Government policies on Covid-19. At the same time the amount of kindness pouring into the world right now is simply stunning.

It has been hard to stay calm and positive when Social Media is full of anger and complaints. I keep falling back into my heart chakra to keep centred. People have been angry and standing up for what they believe in – to be considerate e.g. leaving enough food for others, staying away from people especially the elderly and to be kind.

All of this is a wakeup call for us humans. We have been living out of our egos for too long. The Universe and Mother Earth has been pushed to extreme that something had to give. It doesn’t matter how the virus started, it is when it ends that is crucial.

Notice how the skies are clear and there is less noise pollution now? This time last year, my Facebook feed would have been full of people posting their holiday snaps and check-ins to some amazing places. Now I see posts about creative projects, homemade goodies and how their children are coping with the #stayathome situation. One friend even posted a photo of his badly cut hair as a project to entertain the kids!

This really shows how resilient and adaptable we really are. The Universe is also showing us that we need to get back to basics. The New Moon is encouraging us to take personal responsibility for our lives.

The energy is in SELF. How can “I” make a difference? How can “I” change my life? What can “I” do? These are the questions that will be swirling in some of our minds this week.

For Empaths and lightworkers, you will feel a little challenged. This may come from financial difficulty or feeling a little fragile spiritually. If you are self-employed then the climate of uncertainty will be difficult to navigate. Use your tools and inner wisdom to think out of the box. I know some who talk about meditation a lot but never actually do it to help themselves. Tap into your tools and listen to your soul. The ideas and inspirations are within you. I also feel some of us will be feeling a new “calling” whether it is spiritual or for your own sense of purpose.

This New Moon will help us review where we are putting our energy into. Reflecting on what is working and what is not. This is important as you will tempted to keep going and pushing in an area that is clearly not bearing fruit.

The physical effect of this New Moon is rather strong. Some of us may have had some very intense dreams, particularly feeling like we are “out of this world”. I feel many have been connecting with the galaxy. I have also felt very spacey and been waking up with a massive headache the last few days.

The New Moon appears on the 24th which numerology totals to 6. Six has a very loving and stable energy. It brings a message of choices and also about working together. It also shines a light on home life, many of us are experiencing it right now, except it feels very restricted due to the virus. When we add “3” (March) to 6, we get 9, which encourages us to integrate the physical, intellectual and spirituality. Nine is also seen as one that reminds us to control our impulses.

There is also a sense of “emptiness” which I relate to the solar plexus and sacral chakras taking a big hit from what is happening in the world. Recharge your chakras by meditating and focusing on these two areas.

Exercise:

Get yourself comfortable. Dim lights, incense and a comfy chair or seat on the floor.

Put this music on your earphones https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D9zNi1uTL0. Close your eyes, take a nice deep breath in and release your breath slowly. In your next breath in, focus on the area between your chest and belly button. Just feel the area and imagine you are breathing in and out of that area. Listen to the music, relax and just go with the flow. Stop when you feel you are ready. Have some tea or water next to you to drink and chill for a while. Write down anything that comes to your mind.

Ritual

  • Smudge – Sage the house using good quality Californian white sage. Start at the front of the house and go around the house to push sage smoke all around the house. Finish at the same place you started. Use a small clean bowl of smudge bowl with a small amount of sage and add as you go otherwise you will overwhelm the house with smoke.
  • Take a moment to meditate and bring calm to your body and mind
  • Write down your intentions list. Put down five things you would like to manifest. Be specific and things you can realistically make happen with some effort. Putting down winning the lottery which has a complex energy will not be effective.
  • Sleep with crystals – if you have rose quartz, amethyst and or black tourmaline. Don’t worry if you don’t have all three. Place whatever you have into your pillow case and sleep. They will give you that extra energy buzz to bring calm in the storm right now.

In summary, it is important to stay positive and sensible right now. Put your energy into manifesting what you need to bring in a new cycle of energy to work with the Universe. Keep your energy field uplifted with music, meditation and positive activities. Time for self care and being kind to yourself.

I will be doing some lives on the Facebook page and group to give you some tools to work on while you are at home. So do make sure you LIKE my page. Do comment below if you have any questions or want to share your story.
