New Moon in Aries - Journey To Success
The New Moon for April 2019 reaches its peak on Friday the 5th at 10:50, Amsterdam time.
The Pisces New Moon cycle ends and the Aries New Moon cycle begins. The New Moon in Aries is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram.
It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project, and discover our own personal courage.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and thus a New Moon in Aries is especially ripe with opportunity for new beginnings.
A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. That’s why we always use the energy of the new moon for new beginnings, setting new intentions and reflecting upon the last 28 days. Our new moon healing circle is great way to gather as a community, sit in circle and set new intentions with healing thoughts to any life lessons over the last 28 days.
The effects of the April 5 new moon will last four weeks up to the May 4 New Moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from April 5 to the April 19 Full Moon.
New Moon in Aries
The New Moon on Friday April 5, 2019 at 15° Aries is square Saturn. Although this is a challenging aspect, the new moon is more promising because of the fortunate fixed star Alpheratz.
The April 2019 new moon brings opportunities for honor, wealth, promotion, good friends and business success. But first, any fear, self-doubt or pessimism must be overcome with patience, perseverance and hard work.
With the Aries New Moon, we might consider acting on a constructive impulse and following a hunch or taking a risk. Aries learns through experience and action, so we might treat ourselves to a little adventure now. It’s also a good cycle under which to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are, without putting on airs. We might also find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so – it will go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out. It’s a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine and that involve doing something new and fresh.
However, the New Moon forms a square to Saturn, suggesting some blocks surrounding our new beginnings. Something may not get off the ground as quickly as we’d like now. Even so, we’re in a rare window when none of the major planets/bodies are retrograde, and things may very well swim along after this check-in with reality.
The New Moon square to Saturn is only a very mild influence because the orb is over four degrees. A stronger and more fortunate influence come from the bright fixed star Alpheratz in the Head of the Princess, Constellation Andromeda.
Alpheratz Star Astrology
Fixed star Alpheratz, Alpha Andromedae, is a 2.1 magnitude white-purple binary star in the head of the Princess, or Chained Woman, Andromeda Constellation. The names Alpheratz and Sirrah both derive from the Arabic سرة الفرس (surrat al-faras) which means the navel of the mare. The association with the Horse comes from the time of Ptolemy when he shared this star with Pegasus constellation. She is so very close to her fathers heart. Cor Regis, The Heart of the King, is only 2 minutes away at 14 20 in Cepheus Constellation.
Alpheratz is a fortunate fixed star, being Jupiter and Venus in nature. It gives independence, freedom, love, riches, honor and a keen intellect. When harmonious it makes for popularity.
Alpheratz star rules the area connecting the head with the neck and the lower jaw in the human body.
It is a generally favorable constellation denoting that which is honorable and eminent. Badly placed, however, it can portend earthquakes, and bring the opposite.
New Moon square Saturn
New Moon square Saturn with the wide orb of 4°44′ suggests there may be some tests and challenges to overcome before reaching the honor, promotion or happy marriage promised by Alpheratz.
If you suffer from depression, self-doubt, pessimism or low self-esteem, the new moon conjunct Alpheratz may trigger discouragement and “a battle with imaginary fears”. If so, this is a great opportunity to face your fears head on and beat them, once and for all.
Or you may feel that certain duties and responsibilities are holding you back from success. If so, the new moon is also test of your character. Strive to meet your responsibilities with patience, determination and a strong work ethic.
Luckily we also have the help of Asteroid Vibilia, who is named after the Roman goddess of journeys and traveling, “who prevented people from losing their way”.
Astrologically, Vibilia does seem to relate to all kinds of traveling, especially the frequent, habitual or especially significant kind.
Asteroid Vibilia could also symbolize a spiritual journey to gain enlightenment, self understanding, or happiness and contentment in your soul.
Journey To Success
Under the Aries New Moon, which is typically the best for manifesting, see if you can resist the urge to make wishes and goals that are fueled by the ego. Ask yourself if what you want is really a calling of the heart and soul or just an illusion constructed by the ego? Go within and see how you are being encouraged to plant seeds to align with your highest truth and your highest path.
Happy New Moon!
