Aries season

New Moon in Aries Moonscope – 1 of 2 March 21 2023

March 21 brings the first of two new Moons in Aries which sets the momentum of change in motion. On its way to 0 degrees Aries, the dark Moon meets Neptune some five hours earlier, squares Aries’ ruler Mars in Gemini, and sextiles an anaretic Pluto in Capricorn which is two days away from its arrival in Aquarius. To say this new Moon is ground-breaking may be the understatement of the decade.

It’s a new Moon of actions and reactions. It asks for participants, not spectators. It tells us life is a contact sport. There are no more Time Out’s. We have to get on the playing field and bring our best game. Take action under this new Moon. That critical first step on the 1,000 mile journey. Then harness the momentum that creates and keep going. Between now and the second new, ‘black’ Moon you’ll see results. 


Not one but two fresh starts or opportunities are on offer for you in the next 28 days. They who dare win, Aries. Hearts and minds as well as that goal. This Moon is fast-moving, quicksilver in its emotional impulsion. It urges you onwards with an impulse you can’t ignore.

Initiate those plans. Send that application or submission winging its way onward. This is no time to be shy. Or to undersell yourself and your ideas. Hours after this new Moon appears it will encounter Mercury. Newly arrived in your sign, urging you to take that idea and run with it. Or share it with others. A positive response could be on its way for many of you. Someone appears who is receptive in more ways than one to what you have to say. Keep that conversation going. Follow up. Emotionally you’re craving something new. Your direct approach is going to be appreciated by exactly the right audience now. No filters or editing needed. Bring the best you got, Aries. And that’s you.


Choose your mindset wisely under this and the next new Moon in your 12th, Taurus. Now, I’m not selling you psycho-babble woo woo about only thinking positive thoughts 24/7. Because nobody can do that. But I am asking you to opt for glasses are designed to be refilled approach.

When pessimistic thoughts appear we can thank them for sharing. Then consciously shift our focus or play with turning the perspective on an issue upside down. How else could we choose to interpret it? Often when we do this we arrive at a solution or simply move away from the problem entirely. The first of two new Moons asks you to look closer. Refocus. Even journal as many ways to look at an area or issue as you can possibly imagine. By doing this you unlock secret reserves of power and play with quantum mechanics and the energy of the multiverse. There are also no coincidences under this new Moon. Intuition, insight, signs, synchronicities broadcast load and clear if you tune in. Like a cosmic radio, you get to choose the wavelength you select now. Go for that positive spin.


A rare 56 day portal opens up where life expands via the people you know and meet. Think about who you know. Your friendships, contacts and connections. Let’s imagine for one moment these people represent money. How rich are you? A billionaire? Scraping by? Somewhere between the two?

Like all relationships, friendships require us to invest. Ourselves and our time. The first of two new Moons urges you to put yourself out there. Approach and be approachable. Make an effort to catch up if you’ve not seen people for a while. This is a wonderful new Moon under which to join that club, activity, association, party or group if you have been thinking about it. You have help in overcoming any hesitation or shyness. Just hours after the new Moon appears it connects to ruler Mercury in here. Bringing with it calls, texts, messages and invites. Time to get talking, Gemini. Sharing is what you do best. And its not just the face to face stuff. This is the time to gain new customers, clients, followers. The more you let people into your world, give them a backstage pass to meet the real you, then the greater that circle expands. And with it the potential to choose from so many goal destination paths, Gemini. Make a wish Jupiter also in here could appear in person to grant it.


The first of two new Moons in your 10th house is the one that asks you to step into the spotlight and prepare to shine and stand out. Rewards and recognition could be on offer. As could be rubbing shoulders with VIP’s, influencers and those at the top of their game. 

This is the house of public perceptions. How you come across to others. While you need to remain authentic, there’s also a fake-it-till-you-make-it element to this new Moon. Boosted by the influence of lucky Jupiter and outrageous Chiron in here. It’s asking what you dare get away with? Not in an Inventing Anna/The Dropout way. But in the act-like-you-own-it-even-if-you-only-have-two-pennies-to-rub-together way. It’s all about the image you project. And above all, your belief in yourself.

Ensure that image conveys the fact that you are someone to be taken seriously. Because if you do, others will sit up, take notice and also, validate that vibe you’re projecting. Which in turn sets your stock soaring. This applies to your personal life too. You are someone seeking something serious and whose intentions are true. Don’t settle for anything less.


Set me free vibes radiate out from the new Moon in your 9th. Let’s face it Leo, you weren’t designed to sit on the sidelines of life. You are the star turn, #1, the headline act. No bit parts or supporting roles for you.

This breakaway new Moon, along with Jupiter and Chiron in here, urges you to take a leap of faith to claim a bigger life experience. To shrug off confines and anything that’s holding you back. Often this can be our self-imposed limitations. Or worries about what others will think. Maybe your concerns about what ifs. Such as what if you don’t succeed? But what if you do? There is really only one kind of failure and that is not trying at all. Jupiter pretty well guarantees that even if you fall flat on your face, you’ll discover that brown stuff is actually chocolate. While Chiron dares you anyway. You’ll never know unless you try. Just see the process as broadening your experience and let go of any result for now. But you could be looking at an astounding one between this new Moon and the next.

And dares you to push that envelope. Your 8th is your soul vault. Where riches are buried but you need to dig deep into the emotional depths to tap into the vein of gold and diamond bright insights to be unearthed. This is an inexhaustible resource. Tap into it because this is where your real power to make changes and unleash the real dancing you, resides.
