One Person’s Heartache Is Another’s Lesson
This new moon wants to urge you to recognize that the lessons you have learned and the struggles you have experienced can be used to help others.
Aries’ fire energy is the spark that ignites new beginnings; where fresh energies spring to life.
Aries Is The Home Of Fresh Starts
If you think about fire itself, it does seem quite magical: this source of light, warmth, and also destruction appears out of nowhere, and transforms everything it touches.
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is therefore incredibly at home in the New Moon which represents new beginnings and rebirth.
A Time To Find The Self Among The Crowd
Aries energy is also about honesty, clarity and directness. Allow yourself the freedom to explore what you want to explore; do not feel pressure to follow scripts others have written for you, or try to behave in a certain way you feel socially or culturally expected to.
This moon is about allowing your light to shine from within and having the courage to live authentically.
Draw From The Power Of The Wounded Healer Chiron
This New Moon is also conjunct with Chiron, the comet that sits between Saturn and Jupiter. Known as the “wounded healer,” Chiron’s importance in astrology is just beginning to be understood as we further develop ideas around shame, trauma and the idea of “performing” for others.
Chiron represents the wounds you carry throughout life, specifically, those wounds which are possible to heal from and draw on to help others. These could be insecurities you had as a child or still have. It could represent the pressure you feel to perform for others, to fit in, etc. But these are all aspects of yourself that you can draw on to help those you care about.
What’s The Worst That Could Happen?
What would happen if you allowed yourself to accept and embrace the parts of you that you feel embarrassed about or pressured to hide?
As we think about the energies associated with this Aries New Moon, Chiron speaks to the ways you can teach and heal others once you have completed your own self-work. When you are truly shining from within, your light and warmth will inspire those around you.
