For those of us who skipped making New Year’s resolutions, the enterprising Aries New Moon on March 27, 2017, offers another opportunity to set new intentions in motion. Resistance falls away now, leaving us without any excuses. We can visualize a final destination, and there’s no reason to delay getting started. However, we might swing into action too quickly since Aries has only one setting: yes. Thankfully, a small dose of caution plays well now.
Action-planet Mars is energized during this New Moon, but making real progress might be more complicated than we prefer. A surreal Mars-Neptune sextile distracts us from reality while inspiring us to greater heights. We could even misread the signs and jump to the conclusion that reaching our goals will be a piece of cake.
However, Mars also runs into an unscheduled review by taskmaster Saturn, making sure we are prepared before moving ahead. Balancing our innocent desire to achieve immediate success with a more mature understanding of gradual progress enables us to work hard, practice patience, and accomplish more than we ever thought possible.
Keep reading to see how this powerful New Moon can impact YOUR sign!

A shift in dynamics could be as simple as giving someone a chance to vent their frustrations or finding creative ways to have more fun with the ones you love. Regardless, it feels good to finally address the issue directly instead of tiptoeing around it. Amma says, “We are all beads strung together on the same thread of love.”
