March 29, 9:55pm ~ April 1, 1:20am
This is a mixed period for the Aries Moon. It is waning through the 30th, New at exactly 2:48pm on the 30th, and is waxing from that moment until 1:20am on April 1st.
Check your mood on Aries days. I find I get a little cranky sometimes. Knowing it will pass in a day helps me get past it with less effort.
It’s best not to plant or fertilize on the day of the New Moon. It’s a day of rest in the garden. You can use the time for clean-up chores and attending to your garden tools, especially if you decide to sharpen or polish them. Do that during the waxing hours of this Aries Moon.
New Moon in Aries Mini-Ritual
At some point on the day of the New Moon (March 30th), light a flame. It doesn’t have to be big ~ a simple votive or tea light candle will do. Use a candle in your garden if you want to be outside, or light torches if you have them.
While the flame is lit, name the flame for the one thing inside your heart that you can call Spirit. Spend a few minutes in gratitude for this gift that sustains you when all else fails. It’s your source, your inner flame. When you are ready, extinguish the fire, but continue to carry the flame in your heart.
