It is an especially strong time to create your own wish list of things you’d like to accomplish in the year ahead.

Set Intention for the New Moon in Aries
Set your intention at the Aries New Moon around topics that align with the energy of Aries. Here are some suggestions.
Express YOU with confidence
Aries is confident, independent, and unapologetically self-reliant. Use this energy to exercise and experience your independence. Be Your Self! Don’t apologize, don’t plan, don’t ask forgiveness. When we confidently express who we really are, we inspire and motivate others to do the same.
Close your eyes. What is that daring, brave, original, assertive thing you have always imagined yourself doing. Now is the time. Do it. Don’t think about it, don’t plan it, and don’t organize it. Just do it!
Aries, as an initiating energy, is the energy of spring and new growth. It wants to support new life, grow something, birth a new idea, and do just about anything new. What seed have you been carrying quietly in your pocket? Now is the time to till the soil and plant the seed. Put it in the soil, water, and feed it and watch it grow! What you’re growing might be just what the world is needing.
