NEW MOON in Aries heralds in a powerful new start. It is the beginning of the Astrological New Year and a momentous time in history where the ripples of transformation have been seeded and action to bring in the new is being called for now. Each of us plays a part in this collective rebirth. It is time to find and trust our own unique expression, and use our voice, our being, and our vibration to embody the changes and the energies we wish to experience.
Like the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers reminded us this past weekend spent in deep ceremony and prayer, “The hardest journey is from your head to your heart, but once you get there, you’ll know who you are.”
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most tuned in readers of the stars…
First from the always progressive Cathy Pagano from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“With both the Sun and Moon in Aries, we really begin the new astrological year….Aries’ primal fire and passion move us into life…”
“We must each find our courage—an Aries trait—to become the people we are meant to evolve into. And to bring our ideas, our love and our purpose to help the larger community as we go through our collective transformation.”
“This New Moon is truly a new birth. It is energetically connected to the on-going Pluto-Uranus square, the womb of evolution that is presently shaking and re-shaping our planetary life. We are living in such important times—times where not only people, but the Earth herself needs defending. We all are being called upon to take an active role in shaping our future.
“As Pluto pulls down the decaying structures of patriarchal society (and corporations becoming ‘people’ is the ultimate sociopathic attempt by patriarchy to hold onto power), we need new ideas, new leaders and new structures that reflect true democracy around the world to fill the void left by Pluto’s destruction.
“And that includes equality not only between women and men, but between feminine intuition/feeling and masculine rationality/facts. We need both sides of our brains to help solve our problems and create a more caring, open and free society.
“…Each of us has a different destiny, a different calling. That’s what Aries’ energy moves us to explore…We’ll activate our Aries energies in a big way with Uranus in Aries very close to this New Moon. Uranus is the great Awakener, the revolutionary and the mad genius of the zodiac…”
“With Mars the warrior retrograding in Libra, the sign of the Other, we are more willing to defend the rights of others, to work on being fair and balanced and to be kind and courteous. Libra is ‘ruled’ by Venus, the feminine energy of love, wisdom and connection. This loving energy will sustain us when express ourselves….”
“As we ground in this new identity (Uranus in Aries), our warrior nature will help us challenge the powers-that-be that stand in the way of needed transformation (Pluto in Capricorn). So find your inner spiritual warrior who will guard your back and help keep you focused on your destiny. And don’t be afraid to step in and defend people, places and animals who can’t help themselves.”
“The Aries New Moon, birthed within the Uranus-Pluto womb, is strengthened by the addition of Jupiter in Cancer and a wide opposition from Mars. These four planets are slowly coming together to form a cardinal grand cross in the sky—a celestial call to action.
“Jupiter in Cancer opens our emotional bodies so we can integrate these transformative energies and find a new wholeness. Mars energizes our willpower as well as our desires, and Jupiter challenges us to include the desires of our community and our world.
“So you can see why this New Moon is so potent. The energy of transformation is being seeded within each of us. Find out where Aries and Mars are in your birth chart, and it will give you a good idea of the texture and focus of this new beginning and the kind of warrior energy you carry.
“The Sabian symbol for the Sun and Moon at 10* Aries is: A shining golden ring, engraved with magical symbols. This image speaks of a marriage ring which symbolizes a union with the Self—the divine spark within each of us. The magical symbols represent the archetypal laws of life which are the foundations of our own life. When we are connected to the Self, we are Self-confident, Self-possessed. We include all of ourselves into the truth of who we are and who we are here on Earth to be. Then the magic can happen.
“We’ll need to live out our higher Self to take on this challenge. We are being initiated into a higher consciousness; we are birthing a new future for our world. We are the grandmothers and grandfathers of the future. Don’t be afraid to blaze new trails and think new thoughts.
“Venus in Aquarius challenges Saturn in Scorpio to hold onto our high ideals and our unique gifts in relationships. Old relationship wounds need to be transformed into understanding, as our higher Mind gets activated.
“Our visions of the future must be grounded in our collective welfare. Saturn is part of a grand water trine, along with Jupiter in Cancer and Mercury in Pisces. Our connection to each other through this water triangle merges with the grand cross through Jupiter in Cancer. We really need to think outside the box and understand that what’s good for me is also good for you. The psychic water trine brings our emotional bodies into balance so we can handle the grand cross’ energies.
“We are heading into an intense month. By mid-April, this grand cross will tighten just as we enter eclipse season. Life is picking up speed. The best thing you can do is stay centered, married to yourself, so you can open up to the energies in a conscious way. Become channels for this energy by naming it and owning it.
“During April , the grand cross hits America’s 4th of July birth chart Sun square Saturn. It will ask Americans to grow up and find their true freedom. Astrologers are guessing at all the ways these energies will manifest in the culture. We cannot predict what will happen, although we can certainly imagine some of the outcomes. This will be a pivotal moment of change in some way. But since we don’t want to sit back and just be spectators, here’s an idea.
What would happen if during this month, we consciously use this energy to interact with people in a deep way by radiating who we really are. We can use the energies of this grand cross to BE an example of the best way to deal with our times.
“We could stop hiding our light under a bushel. Imagine how you want to BE and trust yourself to be it.”

From the always insightful Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology:
“The New Moon in Aries at 10 degrees on March 30th, 2014 ushers in extremely creative energy. Consider this New Moon as an ignition point for the month ahead as it contains intensely accelerated unpredictable and transformational energies and astrological configurations.
“The New Moon in Aries makes a bold statement and thus leaves no stone unturned as it may symbolically or literally directly point the way to the path that is untraveled. Within the unknown or unfamiliar, the Divine as the opportunity to bring in wonderful surprises.
“…Be straightforward and ask for what you need and what you will accept in your life. This is a time to embrace your individual life path and it’s uniqueness. Provide plenty of breathing room within relationships this week until after the New Moon in Aries. Smothering or being overly clinging is not a viable option.
“In fact, if this potent energy is not grounded or directed into healthy outlets people may act over hyper, lash out, be super hyper and even agitated or angry. It is raw energy seeking for healthy use but you have to do this consciously otherwise it may become destructive and hurt others.
“What is evident is that there is huge emphasis on big changes in lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, addressing old issues and healthy empowering emotional expression. This is not going away, rather only increasing its symbolic or literal pressure to ensure that each person takes this seriously and makes the necessary adjustments in a realistic way.
“The New Moon in Aries is a breath of fresh air as it provides the impetus to act in accordance with inner guidance and move swiftly.
“It is best not to force, coerce and dominate others with this potent energy. Bending another to your will only backfire now. More importantly why would you want to do that when you can be putting all your energy and focus into your life path and happiness?
“This New Moon, suggests to embrace your individual spark and to have the courage to take action in life. Even if you do not know where it leads, the Archetype of the Inner Compassionate Warrior (symbolized by Aries) will help you explore a new way of life or expression. Go forth with gusto as this may just bring delightful surprises you may not expect.”

A wonderful perspective from Andrew Smith from Cosmic Intelligence Agency:
“Throughout history there have been times when the Veil between the spiritual and the physical has thinned; times wherein we, as a collective, experience pressures to seismically regenerate as monumental libidinal energies are liberated. Those times are replete with paradoxical themes – the burgeoning anticipation of birth, coupled with the anxiety of overwhelming body splitting pain; the euphoria of love that comes with cradling the nascent infant and the knowingness that your life (and body) will never again be the same; the hope that comes with projecting into the future and the fear that life will continue to unfold in the way that always has. Tension and its companion, release, walk confidently hand in hand through the chaos that precedes the emergence of new life.
“As the Veil thins and through this ‘Tempest of Transition’, lights have always shone brightly, as brave and solitary souls. Those pioneers do not waver from their authentic path and they speak of their truth (often to the detriment of their social standing), producing work that has heralded quantum shifts within our human consciousness…”
“We are living through one such time. The Veil is so thin at the moment and our world is not the same. Moreover, your world is no longer the same! Both are experiencing massive changes, penetrating all levels of reality – personal, social, cultural and environmental.
“Now is not the time to maintain the thought forms that defined the previous way of being. Those methods simply do not work anymore – be they the limitations of the logical positivist methodology of the material and economic sciences or the codification of a hierarchical misogyny within the monotheistic religious traditions – never in recorded history has there been a level of awareness that the system simply is not working! What that new system looks and feels like is up to you.
“We are living through the birthing a new way of viewing life…”
“Have you ever been in the presence of someone who utterly exudes a sense of being or a sense of oneness with what they are doing; who has a sense of complete immersion in and focus upon the task at hand? Have you noticed how enrapturing it is to be in this person’s presence? It is as if their aura ensorcells all those around them and thereby further enabling the manifestation of their devotion, even if the inspirer is without a notion of wilful egoic desire…”
“Many people who are consumed by this fire are invisible to both the media and the masses owing to the fact that to be truly immersed with what calls them means that they just are. When you are in this state of being you simply act. You do. You don’t talk about it. You don’t promote yourself, ask people to write about what you are doing, and you don’t sit and over analyse the pros and cons about it, or think about whether it is going to make you money and successful. In this state of being you simple are. So deeply infused with spirit and passion, you are prompted to act, without thought and without concern for the outcome, since you will find a way to make it happen, irrespectively of the challenges and disappointments.
“Think of any young children in your life. Think, too, of what you were like when you were an innocent child. Within you there remains an enchanted place where the colors are more luminous and the air more fragrant than ever; a place where marvels never cease; miracles and magic abound; and where fascination and enthusiasm breed creation. This place is called Aries.
“This is the place within you wherein Spirit remains embryonic and wherein you can live without complexity, in simple honesty and awe. Yet, maintaining this singular focus, or belief, throughout your life is not easy. Yet it is possible… regardless of whether your Path is one to actively experience this dimension, it is one of the twelve spiritual paths that exist within you.
“This path, known as the path of Initiatory Spirit, is what astrologers call Aries and it simply is a path, like that of a child’s, that pronounces a willingness to courageously bear the light and express love without any doubt or fear.
“A child simply is. His/ her imagination is immanent and real, not something into which they escape. He/ she lives completely in the now. They do not worry. Their minds are not full of ‘what if’ questions. They are true scientists continually asking What? Why? And How?! They are fuelled by enthusiasm and wonder. They live in joy because they only do what they love to do. They are the ultimately spiritual beings because they are in the continual act of creation through their own creativity.
“… With the alignment of the Lights to Uranus and squaring both Pluto and Jupiter, you have an opportunity to change fundamentally old and well grooved patterns, replenishing them with your authentic self, that 4 year old within, that lived life free from worry, stress and only did things that he/ she loved – the 4 year old that demonstrated the Aries within.
“Remember the child within you. Remember what you loved/ love. When you focus on what you love to do, you will worry less simply because you are in a state of joy. And when you worry less, you are free to take action.
“Moreover, if you genuinely believe that you cannot move consciously onto your authentic path, find some way to make your existing path fun and enjoyable. Even though there may be days when you feel that facing the day with the spirit of a child is impossible; it is one of those challenges that when faced head-on – you will reap rewards beyond your wildest dreams!
“So this coming Arian lunation display that spirit of eagerness and adventure which will allow you to create absolute miracles in what you achieve; allow yourself to play; to take risks; to abandon any fears and doubts; and your greatest thrill will be when you learn that you can develop a ‘habit’ of rising in the morning and facing each day with a child-like spirit!”

From astrologer Divine Harmony:
“On Sunday we have a very powerful New Moon in Aries that takes us into the most intense and profound month of astrology I have ever seen (in my years studying astrology intensely that is).
“The seeds we plant and intentions we set this weekend will take us far into the future– so it is wise to take a moment to really get clear on what it is we want! In relationships, in work and career, in family situations, in finances, in health. Finding our own True North- that guiding Light that leads us back to our original selves– is the most potent manifestation of this lunation.
“Yet we do have to keep in mind that this Lunation is conjunct Uranus and square Jupiter and Pluto- so this New Moon cycle also takes us into a radical month of shake ups, wake up calls, breakdowns and breakthroughs of massive proportions. This is personal as much as it is collective- so pay attention to your Inner Life as well as what is happening around you in the coming months.
“There may be times when life is really chaotic and the only control you have is on your reactions and your response to what is playing out around you. I have been saying this for months now, but it cannot hurt to say it again here: Finding your center and strengthening your capacity to return to it again and again despite the storms outside will serve you well in the coming month.
“This kind of astrology has a really BIG energy around it and many people can feel it amping up right now. Apocalypitc thinking won’t serve if it only causes you to go into fear. But if you don’t know the true meaning of Apocalypsia- you should know: it means the lifting of the veil. Sometimes specifically it means the lifting of the bridal veil.
“We all have amazing opportunities to lift the veil this coming month. The veil of delusion, illusion, deception- of self and by others. The veil of confusion, lack, disconnection and apathy. And yes considering the bridal veil connotation- we may even get a glimpse of the Goddess in her full glory in the coming weeks! So keep your eyes, mind and heart open!”

Lastly from Robert Wilkinson from his Aquarius Papers:
“This is a heavily transmutational New Moon, with the ability to ‘raise the natural to the human,’ or see the natural magic in who we are once we drop old emotional sludge or baggage that may not have ever been ours to begin with. See a great vision of ‘civilized living,”’and be willing to be called to a renewal. Just expect that things will accelerate with extraordinary speed in the near future, so don’t get bugged by the pressure.”
