The Aries New Moon is upon us and with it comes some intense fire energy. Get ready to light things up! Aries is all about action, individuality, self-expression, and inspiration. This is a time to start something new that has been brewing inside of you, or to find sudden inspiration to do something you’ve never done before! Work with the Aries New Moon to bring into your life a couple of intentions or aspirations for the next moon cycle. New Moons are all about beginnings, planting seeds, and slowly starting to flourish. This would be a great night to sit by a fire and spell out your intentions or goals. Tell a friend or lover, journal it in your notebook, or just gaze into the flames to envision your future. Here is some practical advice from the tarot on working with the energy of the New Moon in Aries!
Where do I need more fire energy in my life to spark new inspiration and creativity?- The Hierophant
You need more fire energy in your work, in your society, in your belief system, in your personal world structure. The Hierophant is not a fiery guy, but he is a persistent, steady, wise and hard-working guy. He is inspired by truth, by faith, and by his community. He asks you to bring fire energy into your daily routine. If you are not normally a super energetic or spontaneous person, this type of fire energy will be right up your alley. Instead of jumping in, you can plan it out. You can systematically say, “I need more passion and soul in this area of my life. This is how I’m going to do it.” You will have creative insights and more drive than usual to pinpoint those areas, make those changes, and bring about change. If you are normally quite fiery, The Hierophant asks you to direct that fire, to streamline it into huge achievement. If you’re always be tugged by the divine muses to create, now is your chance to channel those nudges of creativity into a full roaring fire of productivity. Work with Hierophant energy to create that channel, to make systems and processes for bringing your inspiration into form. This is a wonderful time for hard-working accomplishments.
What can I do or create to better express my personality and individuality?- The Hanged Man rx
You need to stop waiting around for the perfect moment and act now. You need to stop putting other people’s needs first and get your oxygen mask before assisting your neighbor. There is a certain honor to altruistic behaviors, but not when you take it to the extreme of martyrdom, especially when no one even asked you for help in the first place. Do you even know what you want? How do you want to live? What do you want to create? What is your soul person? The Hanged Man asks you to take a look at those questions with fresh perspective, new angles, a spotlight of hope and wonder. Don’t hesitate, don’t delay, now is the time. You can dig deep into your psyche and explore your soul. You can shine a light on yourself and recognize who you are. You can figure out how you are hiding or repressing your individuality and personality. You can decide not to continue those practices of self-denial and martyrdom. You are the most important person in your life. There is no “your life” without you, so start treating yourself as #1.
How can I have more fun and glowing active energy in my life?- IX of Cups
Open up your heart! The IX of Cups wants you to know that fun and games are good for you. Having fun soothes the weary spirit. It heals the wounded heart. When you let fire energy and inspiration glow inside of you, you also allow for feelings of happiness and joy to be acceptable. You do not have to be a miserable person. You are not obligated to be negative, or trapped, or hate the things you are doing. You can take a fresh approach. You can say that you are lucky, that you are blessed, and that you love the life you’re living. You can be happy to be alive. You don’t have to be jaded to fit in. You don’t have to worry about seeming like a nut or a superficial person for not being bogged down by the sadness and weight of the world. If we each enjoyed ourselves a little more, brought more happiness and love into the world, and smiled at one another, perhaps the burdens of the world would start to dissipate. Perhaps we are perpetuating sorrow by clinging to it when it is better to focus on love than to focus on anything else at all.
