Usually, this new moon symbolizes the beginning of the year. It is as if projects that were waiting to be launched almost started on their own.
If someone is using astrological symbology for personal development exercises, this New Moon helps to connect with drive, independence, motivation, movement of all kinds. Normally, it does not help to wait for the right moment, it does not help to create a strategic attitude, or to self-care. It helps to make decisions that are already beyond maturity or to speed things up that are too slow.
However, this particular New Moon comes loaded with other identities or vibrations. The most important is the Venus-Pluto identity. A difficult encounter between Venus and Pluto could be exposed in different ways with many consequences. It would not be possible to talk about this topic in an article as short as these articles on lunations should be. The main focus is on relationships, in general. “Relationships in general” are not in Aries’ sights, so it would be beneficial not to focus on them now. But there is a tendency in the air for the dark aspects of relationships to disturb our peace of mind and, instead of aiming in projects that prioritize independence, we could waste time in dealing with what scares us in dealing with others: being abandoned, betrayed, dominated or controlled, suspicious if there are people who are acting behind our backs or in the shadows. If we allow ourselves to be contaminated by these fears, we will divert attention from what is important at the moment and we will waste time and energy in games, in emotional outbursts, both “positive” and “negative”, but even if they were positive now is not the time at all.
We may be tempted to break relationships or agreements, and some of those agreements or friendships may already be on the edge. Some just won’t be able to take the pressure and collapse. On the one hand, the moment is of absolute truth to what the priorities of the moment are. So, if for example, it is the case of manifesting an academic, professional, or domestic project, then the relationship must wait. If you don’t have a project where to apply independence and autonomy, try to get one for this week. And, move on! Leave the relationships in a suspended state, if possible. If any relationship, especially a couple, is on the brink, it will probably have its big crisis this week. Do not be sad! Moments come and moments go, relationships come and relationships go, and everything moves: emotions, bodies, cities, the planet, the entire universe moves without interruption. Find your space in this continuous movement and manifest your identity there, effortlessly, fluently.
Another important identity now will be the conflict between Neptune and Mars. It’s another difficult meeting to elaborate in a nutshell, simply put. The basic challenge is the loss of objectivity in the fight for what worth it, in the definition and defense of borders with other people, and in the adequacy between attitude and result. You have to keep constant attention on these issues.
Therefore, the best way to seize the moment is to dedicate all your attention to the highest priority, to doing what needs to be done or what is still pending.
But Aries is not just about fighting and the willingness to boost life. It is also the joy of archetypal spring, the warmth that allows you to go out, it is doing things with freedom and autonomy, with laughter. It is to laugh foolishly, at the simple things, at the simple fact that “we beat the winter” and that is reason enough to be happy.
It is a good time to celebrate life in its simplicity, without a dense, deep, or intense spirit. Considering all the limits necessary to preserve life in this context of a global pandemic, it is time to renew the spirit through simple and fun actions, without strategies, without excessive seriousness, and without great expectation. Take the opportunity to live sex without power, without depth, without seriousness, just for pleasure and fun.
All that will change in no time, just around the corner. So, enjoy the moment with your most beneficial identity. When things change, you change.
