Tonight we will have a New Moon in western astrology, and this new moon will take place in the beautiful sign of Aries. We will also have mercury starting to go direct. However, mercury going direct doesn't mean we are in the clear we still have the shadow phases to deal with that is lingering. Especially for those that are Aries, Gemini or Virgo Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, as well take a look at your natal charts and see where Aries, Gemini, Virgo are it will play a role in your life in some aspect. Since this Mercury retrograde had a clear focus from the underworld to show and bring people to the forefront of knowing when and when not to speak was one of the biggest lessons of this retrograde season. There are still many lessons in the shadow phases of learning about stop allowing our egos to let us speak out at the wrong times. The post shadow phases that we will experience over the next couple weeks will also address the ego about stopping and thinking before we say the wrong thing. The shadow phases will also send lessons many of us on when you should comment there are many lessons about the wrong time and saying things in the wrong way and that crazy place. Like you at the baby shower and telling the mother to be that her husband is cheating yes that is the wrong time and place to say that. So even though we are going direct with Mercury still be very mindful of impulsive words and actions because these are all lessons on the poor judgment that the universe is trying to teach us till May 4th, 2018. The good thing about the universal experiences we are all learning at this time we have the New Moon in Aries here saying what did you learn in this retrograde season. Because this Mercury retrograde season was about karma, you were and are going to be punished for bad decisions of speaking out and acting out at the wrong time and place. But the new moon says let's correct our actions, and this is a good time to recommit to doing better. This new moon is about resetting your personal goals but personal goals that genuinely express positive energy for lasting change in your life. Like if you are only trying to lose weight for a party or vacation why not change your mindset and have a long-term goal of being a healthy person period not just for that vacation coming up. Because if you dont set these long-term personal goals, you will be visited with the ramifications of not committing to the lasting change in your life in the next retrograde season. This new moon is in the sign of the Ram for people that follow . In western astrology the ram says take action, on your goals, health, finances, this is the time to try that new workout, the new meal plan with an open heart and mind. Or whatever it is that you have been thinking about trying, try it dont resist the universe wanting to change your habits, ways, speech, thought process. Because we all have to evolve and that requires change and commitment in all areas of development in our lives, not just one area. This new moon is a time not to shun God and the ancestors innovatively ways of evolvement, or change this is a time to be confident that you will get those new eating habits down if you commit this time. Dear souls remember that whatever it is that you want to change or correct in your life be convinced that you can change it this new moon is about tackling your goals with gusto, please be mindful that being a little assertive on creating the new you, but confident doesn't mean that you're rude. Remember that we are still in the shadow phases of mercury so watch your tones, speech not only to others but yourself as well. This new moon is a time to take charge of the unhealthy parts our businesses, and lives, and be willing to be corrected by God and your ancestors and to start a brand new venture. This new moon is a time to build on your personal goals what is your intention is to run a 10k ? or is it to get off high blood pressure medicine for good? Or Save more money towards retirement? Whatever the goals are its time to discover with the new moon the personal courage that you have to complete your objectives. Tonight is a healthy time for sitting and thinking things through so get your moon manifestation journals and be open and honest as you write your goals and place yourself under evaluation. And see what did you learn during this retrograde season and where can you do better in not just to your relationship with others but where can we do better to relating to ourselves.
Take time to make some basil tea and write and enjoy the potent new moon Aries energy while your writing your goals burning some copal, basil, nettle will be beneficial as you write and sip your tea as well all the herbs listed are herbs that respond well to Aries energy. Or you can burn any incense that provides your higher consciousness with a relaxed and calm feeling to write. Tonight's new moon is where we can make some significant changes but to make substantial changes in our lives we must address the parts of us that need changing. It’s time to be realistic about our inner selves and the plans we have for the future. Because being real with yourself and reviewing and redoing your goals will help catapult you to create new beginnings in your life. And remember its okay to start small with goals and its okay to dream big as well and dont judge your goals to harshly no matter how little or big the goal is to write it out and share it with your spiritual court and mother moon tonight as they are there for your support.
As always be careful about what you ask for because they are going to give you lessons to go with every goal that you're working towards manifesting because Aries energy says that you are going to learn baby today. And the best way to learn is through those good ol' fashion life experiences. And get off your ass and take action yep workout today, start searching for a better way to save money today because the work you put in today will lead you to lots of good treats later. The energy of this new moon says that we treat those that do the work. And we need to learn to treat ourselves with dedication and hard work sometimes. Because that hard work of putting the liquor down, not eating the extra food, or saving more money then spending or whatever your goal is will lead you to better golden nuggets. Also, a good journal prompt tonight after you light your white candle and mediate is ask yourself what some ways you can learn to rely on your inner soul for happiness are. And to relate your happiness to outside sources such as liquor, food, etc. the. Vices that we all have even if it isn't liquor or food what is it that you are relying on earthly that is causing more damage to you then bringing you true happiness. Dont allow the shadow phases of mercury retrograde make you not think clearly and be rebellious against the new habits that you know you need in your life. It’s a time to break bad cycles and the routine of bad habits and under this new moon get involved in you changing you and promise your soul that you are committed to doing better for you and you are committed to the new seeds of newness that you are planting under this new moon.
If you do hoodoo or rootwork tonight is a good night for doing crown of success, clearings and cleansing and future money workings.
Good crystals to use for tonight's new moon meditations and journal writing is Carnelian, Aquamarine, Blood stone, Apache tears.
