The Aries New Moon will rise in the night sky on Sunday, April 15th. Each month, a new moon brings about an opportunity to start fresh, clean one’s slate, and take on other projects. Thanks to the influence of Aries, Sunday’s new moon will give you a boost of passion and make you feel like you can achieve anything. If you’re ready to take advantage of what the Aries New Moon has to offer, here are a few Aries New Moon rituals that will help you make the most of this cosmic event.
In her book The Good Spell Book, Gillian Kemp writes of a centuries-old Romany ritual that is believed to make wishes come true. This spell is fairly general and can be used for any wish you may have during the new moon. Kemp writes that on the day of the new moon, you should “write your wish on a sheet of clean paper, then light a new, white votive candle,” and turn off any other artificial lighting.
Repeat the spell at the same time for 12 consecutive nights. If one night is missed, start the spell from day one.
If spell-casting isn’t quite your thing, partaking in any kind of ritual to prepare you to succeed will be extremely potent during the Aries New Moon. For example, you can set aside time on Sunday to take part in a cleansing ritual.
Burn sage in your home to banish negativity from your space and/or physically clean your home to rid yourself of excess clutter. Then, take time for yourself. Run a bubble bath, do a face mask, and ready yourself to dive into a new phase with a clear mind.
The day of the Aries New Moon is also a prime time to read your tarot, and work specifically with The Emperor.
Both The Emperor and Aries are ruled by Mars, and are therefore both determined to conquer tasks ahead. When your reading is finished, keep The Emperor card close by so it can positively influence you while you’re working on new projects.
There are an endless amount of ways to celebrate the Aries New Moon. You can set aside an hour to focus on the passionate and driven Aries energy, and let it help you brainstorm ideas. Or partake in a massive spring clean and shed that extra layer of stuff that’s been weighing you down.
Let go of the uninspiring and turn your attention towards inviting in new, fresh, invigorating ideas, projects, and changes. These Aries New Moon rituals will make you feel invincible.
