What to Expect with the 2017 Aries New Moon
The March New Moon falls on the 27-28th, 2017 in the fiery sign of Aries. As the first New Moon of the astrological year, this is a potent time for new beginnings and for upgrading the parts of your life that no longer serve you.
All New Moons represent new beginnings to some degree, however the Aries New Moon is definitely the strongest and most powerful for setting intentions and starting fresh.
The textures come from the interplay of Aries’ ruler, Mars, and his cosmic love Venus. Venus rules what we want (generally love, money, beauty, creativity). Mars rules how we go after what we want. Those two impulses, desire and drive, are not merely in sync right now; they are inextricably interwoven.
It’s a seeming contradiction: The desire for immediate gratification is bound up with a methodology that is slow, steady, step-by-step and fixed on the moment instead of running off after the next big thrill. Watch the tension build. And excitement. And possibly pay-off.
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries energy represents leadership, new ideas and taking action. Being a fire sign, Aries is all about making plans, pushing forward and charting a new course.
If 2016 was all about endings, 2017 is all about new beginnings, and this energy is definitely going to peak on the March New Moon.

Run your hands across plants, trees and other living things. Sink into your body, into the earth, into the physicality of existence, on this plane.
Leading up to the New Moon, the Universe is definitely going to be guiding you to ditch the old and embrace the new and the more open minded you can be, the easier it will be for you to transform your life.
