The Aries new moon is a solar/lunar declaration of "I am," packed with multidimensional significance. We have a social persona on the surface, an animal inside and a spiritual self with a simultaneously deep interior and radiant exterior. Within and between these are other layers, to the tune of multitudes. To bring your whole self to a thing is to bring an entire galaxy of you-ness.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Do you believe that you have a gift to share with the world? It's a big, bold thought that might feel strange to hold inside your brain, but the more you believe it, the more you will be able to follow through. Sharing the best of you can only happen if you keep striving for it and never quit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If only you could tell yourself how to feel and then feel that way; life would be simple. Alas, feelings exist in the heart and "telling" is a function of language that lives in the neurological structures of the brain. Feelings will transform on their own, though don't let that stop you from trying to guide them via suggestion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are a treasure of kindness. As it can go with treasures, they are often hidden away for safekeeping or publicly shown after some form of protection has been put in place. Give a thought to what you might do to simultaneously give and preserve the brilliant value you offer the world.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). To forgive might be too much for you to do right now. But what about a lesser kind of letting go? You hold a burden — a tangled ball of feelings and grievances that you have every right to. Setting those down will not release another person of karmic debt, though it will certainly free up your hands and spirit to move on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The tree wanders up and down simultaneously, roots finding the earth's center, branches touching the sun. With every exploration, the tree grows stronger and more firmly in place. The bird wanders untethered, vulnerable and free. This week you'll have a decision to make about which wandering is right for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is normal for brilliant minds to be afraid of success. Procrastination, overthinking, avoidant behaviors and self-medicating are some of the many forms of self-sabotage. Be vigilant in overriding your own antics so you can share the best and brightest parts of yourself with the world this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You love someone, and you want to do something very sweet and special for that person, but you're not sure what. The money isn't the important part. How well you know the other person and to what extent you're willing to go to know what will delight this person — that is what's going to make an impression.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those rich in qualities like compassion, humility, grace and patience hold themselves to high standards of character. They've judged themselves, identified as awful people and made corrections. The ones who have never thought of themselves as terrible? Watch out for them and their harmful delusions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The mind loves certainty and would rather take a known path (even if what it is known for is misery!) than any sort of unknown road. And so, a degree of risk will be necessary for good living. The care and training of your brain requires you to challenge your thinking. A higher part of you will take charge this week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Could you stare into your own eyes in the mirror, and profess love? Would you give yourself a pep talk or journal on your greatness? Be willing to try new things in the name of self-appreciation, as you're going to need your own support this week. Find the exercise that's fun to practice whilst solving the problem.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you feel helpless in your own situation, help someone else. This will give you the break from your own problems you need for a proper perspective shift. The reverse will also work. If you can't figure out how to help someone else, then help yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The concept of "fit" will apply to many of the week's endeavors. When things don't work, the first thing to check is the fit. It's not about one person being wrong or the situation being wrong; it's about moving and exploring to find a natural fit, or trimming, expanding and changing things until you create a good fit.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: We are all interconnected, and you will draw much from that net of humanity this year, though another theme that will take precedence is this: A good life is impossible without a kind relationship with self. You are the one who has to hold you through your life — from beginning to end. That's a responsibility worthy of executing with style and compassion. All you do to actively develop self-love will pay off in the world, often amazingly. All relationships benefit, even on the level of business and finance.
