This new moon in Aries—and indeed this entire Aries season—are especially powerful.
Today’s new moon perfects at 1:22 p.m. eastern time at 0 degrees of Aries. With the sun and the moon entering Aries at nearly the same time (the sun entered Aries yesterday at 5:24 p.m. eastern) and Aries being the first sign of the zodiac, this astrological new year is off to an exciting start!
In addition, on April 20, there will be a second new moon in Aries at 29 degrees of the sign. As new moon cycles are great times to start new things, this second new moon in Aries will give you the chance to solidify anything you put into action during this first Aries new moon cycle.
Aries traits are related to the self and at its best, the healthy ego. The archetype is about knowing who you are, trusting your instincts, and taking decided action to get what you want. Aries is a fire sign ruled by the fiery planet of Mars. The fire burns within and like a dragon, Aries is eager to breathe the fire out into the world to make change. At its highest expression, the fires blaze a trail for yourself and others who want to follow you, as opposed to burning through relationships or causing other types of destruction.
To work with the energy of this new moon cycle, feel into the Aries experience, no matter what your sun sign is. Take bold action. Be a forerunner. Make friends and influence people, keeping in mind that the greatest influence you have is over your own behavior.
Full moons usually pack an emotional punch, but this full moon in Virgo is especially potent. The Virgo full moon perfects on March 7 at 7:50a.m. EST, and Saturn enters the sign of Pisces soon after on the same day, at 8:34 a.m. Saturn’s journey through Pisces will last until February 13, 2026, so this is quite the event, indeed!
Saturn is the planet that influences how we structure our lives. It encourages discipline, integrity, and responsibility. On the other hand, Pisces is all about intuition, dreams, imagination, and creativity. Discipline? Not so much.
But while the energies of Saturn and Pisces energies seem to be at odds with each other, the traits of both are valid and necessary in this world—and they can live together harmoniously. Saturn in Pisces can teach us to give our dreams structure through practical means. This is an opportunity to trust your intuition more than ever before. It is also a time to see beneath the surface in your own life and when it comes to world events—when secrets and shadows become visible and take shape.
Full moon cycles are about ending chapters in your life and preparing for what is to come. Virgo is the zodiac sign about practical matters, your daily routine, health habits, organizational skills, and paying attention to details. Interestingly enough, it is also about the ability to change habits according to what works best. Think of this Virgo full moon cycle as a preparation for the long Saturn transit.
During this Virgo full moon cycle, consider taking the time to declutter your living space—that is, get rid of things you don’t need, reorganize, and rearrange. The goal is to clear space to manifest your dreams. Get rid of ideas that keep you stagnant. Your ability to change with the times will be a great asset right now.
Virgo is also an intellectual sign. So don’t dismiss your ideas as being delusional and unrealistic. What steps can you take to make the undoable more doable?
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Fantasies can become real with a little imagination and creativity. Use the current Virgo energy to come up with ideas that you can move forward with during the upcoming new moon cycle in two weeks.
