New Moon in Aries: Pick your Fights Wisely and with Compassion
As we have moved into the month of April you might have experienced a pull towards change. Whether it be change in your personal or professional life, one thing is certain - you need something to change, and you need it now!
As this month’s New Moon falls in the fiery sign of Aries, you might be compelled to follow your gut instinct, put up a fight and make changes that are best suited to your true purpose.
Forever Conscious says: “Making changes always starts with a shift in attitude first. If something is not working on the outside, it is always helpful to look at how you can begin fixing it by looking within.
By going within and addressing any thoughts, beliefs or attitudes around the situation, you are in a much more powerful position to make productive and lasting changes.”
Be ready for change, if that is what you truly want
Moving into the warmer months of the year always brings about a feeling of motivation to get things done and to ‘spring clean’ your home, work and lifestyle.
If there are some battles to be fought, we recommend choosing them wisely. First consider if the issue can first be resolved within. Can you own your issues and make personal changes, rather than relying on someone else to do it for you? It’s important that we are comfortable with the decisions we make and live our lives with no regrets.
If you have spent the time to look within and unpack feelings of frustration but still believe that the issue lays with someone or something else then it’s time to confront it. We’re not saying that you need to put up a fight and approach it with aggression, but it is important that you get your point of view across.
Be weary not to start fights, as Mars and Saturn can create a lot of tension.
Mars and Saturn continue their conjunction in Capricorn this month. Their energies meshing together is creating tension as Mars (ruler of Aries) wants to take action and move forward, while Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) is a cold and slow planet, asking mars to hold back. We can feel this tension in areas of our life where ever this conjunction continues to take place. Luckily, Mercury retrograde ends as we enter the New Moon, allowing for the build up of Mars energy that we have been holding back on to be communicated in a clearer way and set off our initiation to begin something new.
Mercury retrograde can be debilitation for communication, especially when it comes to technology and travel. As the retrograde ends on the New Moon, we can feel that things begin to smooth out with making travels plans or purchases, and any issues with cell phones, laptops or technology.
Connecting with the spiritual world this New Moon
Wear red, and or burn a red candle to initiate in the energy of taking action. Write out your goals and place them on your altar, or somewhere you can see them.
Interested in following a New Moon ritual for change? Forever Conscious recommends trying a very powerful ritual that is best done from April 15 - 26, 2018. The ritual encourages you to connect with guides and angels that will guide you to be feel of negative routines that are holding you back.
Join us at The Conscious Club this Sunday 15 from 16:30 - 17:30 in a magical evening of healing where we practice a beautiful and intimate New Moon Mantra Meditation. We will bless ourselves in this sacred meditation with the name “The Healing Ring of Tantra”.
The healing ring can be used to generate and direct tremendous healing energy. During this meditation we hold hands in an unbroken circle using specific call and response chants to generate healing vibrations.
You will be astonished by the energy and healing vibrations that will be generated by the group. Chanting with the intention of healing will send vibrations through those in the circle, onto those at a distance, and out to the universe. This truly is a profound meditation experience…
Before we start with the meditation we spark off with some warm up Kundalini Yoga exercises. Then we glide effortlessly into this beautiful, transformative and healing meditation circle.
The energy that’s generated by the group is truly amazing. Come and experience it for yourself, and tap into the power of community, Kundalini Yoga and the New Moon energy.

Traditionally, the Moon we see in February is called the Snow Moon due to the typically heavy snowfall of February. This month we’ll also be treated again to a Super Full Moon!
Under the unique vibration of this Aquarius New Moon, you are going to be encouraged to take that leap, and to upgrade your life to a whole new level.
In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. This year we’ll also be treated to a Supermoon and a Total Lunar Eclipse!
The first New Moon of the year will be in a glorious Partial Solar Eclipse in the sign of the Capricorn. This partial Solar Eclipse takes place on the 5th of January and is the first of the several Capricorn Eclipses of the year. Since Solar Eclipses are rare occurrences, the start of 2019 is even more magical and meaningful now.
Of course with the ending of the year, it is inevitable not to look back and go through our year. This Cancer Full Moon perfectly wraps up our year and prepares us for the coming new year!
This New Moon falls in the intense sign of Scorpio and stands for forgiveness and compassion. Travel to the depths of your heart during this Scorpio New Moon to heal and transcend.
On October 24th, the Full Moon this time in the sign of Taurus will peak again! Bringing lots of unexpected changes!
On the 9th of October, a New Moon will once again rise! This New Moon falls in the sign of Libra and stands for new beginnings, retrials, and love.
From the organizational and practical Virgo, we enter the fiery Aries. This Full Moon is all about emotions.
This astronomical event that marks the transition to autumn also has an astrological influence on you because the equinox at the same time coincides with the shift from the Virgo season to the Libra season.
This new moon is a perfect time to self-reflect. Accepting who you are is not accepting only the good features that make you you. Acceptance begins with embracing both the good and the bad.
The last months have been way more intense than expected as we experienced three eclipses and seven planets in retrograde. Thus, it is time to use this fiery energy and “build the fires within using reflection, contemplation, communication, and inner imagination.”
August’s new moon falls in Leo. Expect a time of rebirth and connection!
In July there’s a full, blood moon in Aquarius. Expects lots of emotions!
July’s New Moon in Cancer will bring certain emotions to the surface but also gives us lots of positive vibes for heading in the right direction.
June’s Full Moon in Capricorn might feel a bit heavy but Capricorn’s stable and hardworking energy will help us through.

May’s New moon in Taurus is causing a lot of change in our life. But, here’s a guide to help you use these changes wisely.
The April Full Moon falls on the 30th in the powerful Scorpio sign. April’s Full Moon will bring lots of benefits to the table through planet Saturn, which means being more prepared, steady, determined and successful!
The April New Moon falls on the 15th-16th in the fire sign of Aries. This is a busy and highly active New Moon that is going to bring some powerful changes.
Tomorrow afternoon at 14:11 the new moon will rise over The Netherlands as many celebrate St Patrick’s Day. It signifies the start of the Pisces New Moon cycle, and the end of the Aquarius moon cycle. The perfect opportunity to take time to focus on yourself, and activities that connect you to your purpose.
After a rare February with no full moon, the month of March 2018 gets two!
