The Aries New Moon marks the zodiacal beginnings of the annual lunar cycle! The double cardinal energies of Aries and the New Moon phase are a powerfully emergent force to reckon with, so if you have been wanting to try something that feels bold, something new, NOW is your time!
Season of Aries is when we emerge from the cold of our winter hibernation and move into action. It's a great time for a makeover, don a fresh new wardrobe, do some spring cleaning and dust off the shelves...
You may be feeling amped up and motivated for the Aries New Moon on April 15, 2018. This event will, no doubt, have us feeling energized by fresh ideas and ready to take aligned action to manifesting our dreams! With this moon’s planetary ruler, Mars, well-placed in the sign of Capricorn, it’s a great event for setting new intentions around your long-term goals. Mercury will also have gone direct after a two and a half week retrograde in the fiery sign of Aries, so we are clear-headed again and able to move forward!
One word of caution -- with this moon making close contact to Uranus, anything is possible! Uranus is the Awakener, and the Cardinal Fire of Aries energy is passionate, if not urgent! Proceed with your plans, but do stay open to surprising possibilities of change!
Diamonds are not often consulted for their “metaphysical” properties, but they are an awesome choice for this fiery New Moon. Diamonds amplify the energies of other crystals surrounding them and the brilliant flashing of cut diamonds is a reminder of how taking aligned action toward our goals manifests the most beautiful results.
Aries is associated with the head, and diamonds promote mental clarity but also help you develop your psychic talents. With a Mohs rating of 10, diamonds are valued for their strength and therefore, are also highly protective stones.
(Note: this includes Herkimer diamonds as well, though the Mohs scale rating for these crystals is only 7.)
