This new moon is a big one, as Aries is the first of the 12 signs of the zodiac, it represents a new beginning! Aries's is where we first show ourselves to the world. It is a time to draw from our inner strength, to rely on our intuition, to depend on ourselves and show our personal integrity and confidence constructively. Focusing less on what others think we should do and focusing more on our own inner guidance.

Yasmin Boland (Moonology) suggests the following action plans for the Aries New Moon:
◗1. 1. Take action
The New Moon in Aries marks the start of the New Moon cycle, since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The time for dreaming is over and the time to take action has come. You have a clean slate when it comes to making your New Moon wishes: if you’ve been lax about doing them, this is the time to get back on board.
◗ 2. Make a 12-month plan
This a wonderful time to make a plan for the year ahead. If you’re attached, do one plan for yourself and another for you and your partner as a couple. Doing one for work won’t hurt either! Aries energy is really impulsive, so you might think it’s too high energetically right now to make plans, but with a bit of discipline, anything is possible! The fiery, enthusiastic Aries energy is great for infusing your plans with drive and determination!
◗3. Be courageous
If you’ve been too timid and need courage to move forwards with whatever you’re facing, include that in your wish list. Aries is connected to brave Mars, and the energies around the Aries New Moon reflect this. Decide that you can be bolder in life – and then work on it! Aries isn’t so much bold as willing to just bowl into anything and everything, without being overly cautious about the results. If you could use a bit more of this impetuousness in your life, now is the time to incorporate it.
◗4. Have some fun!
Are you having enough fun? Being spontaneous often enough? Think about it and if the answer is ‘no’, then determine that over the coming weeks, you will make more time for fun. Aries is the child of the zodiac and now is a good time to remind yourself to connect with your inner child.
◗5. Focus on you
This is also a time for some focus on yourself and what you need – where you’re going and so on. If you give yourself, your wardrobe and your website just one makeover a year, do it now. Aries is traditionally the ‘starting’ sign, not least because it’s the child of the zodiac: it’s filled with vim and vigour as it prepares to bust out of the starting gate, and it’s not going to worry about going too fast. It just ‘does’. Action stations!
