Once more, the darkest night of the month is upon us! New Moon periods are windows of time where we can set intentions on solid ground, and this month’s NEW MOON happens in the warrior sign of ARIES, the sign of courage, new beginnings, rebirth, and the intuitive self.
This New Moon comes with it possibly painful reminders of past hurts and insecurities. Conjunct Chiron, the comet/asteroid which represents our deepest woundings, this lunation exposes pains we’ve buried in hopes of being forgotten. Sorrow and grief that we fail to confront tend to linger far longer than those that we give expression to. With this Moon also conjunct Mercury, the planet of communication, important conversations may be had, that may lead us towards the path not just of new beginnings, but the path towards true and total healing.
