“A mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Peaking right after the March Equinox, the Aries New Moon on March 21st turns a new page. It holds some of the best energy for new beginnings we will experience all year. It carries high creative energy, allowing us to manifest with ease, find new opportunities, and open to new worlds.
You can think of this March 2023 New Moon as a breath of fresh air, guiding us to think differently, stretch our minds to new dimensions, and look at things in a completely new way.
Newness is destined to arrive under this New Moon. If you have wanted to make some changes in your life; if it’s time for you to seek opportunities elsewhere, this New Moon is on your side.
Aries New Moon and The Upcoming Aries New Moon Eclipse
With all of this fresh and new energy circling in the cosmic skies, it is likely that some surprising or perhaps even shocking information may enter our world. We may experience an awakening of sorts, or have a deep and perhaps even confronting ah-ha moment.
We may find ourselves needing to adjust or make changes in order to fit into this new paradigm that is now before us.
We are blessed with two Aries New Moons in 2023, the March 21st New Moon is the first, and the second comes in the form of a Solar New Moon Eclipse on April 19th.
These two Aries New Moons will work together with the March New Moon falling at the start of Aries at 0-1 degrees and the April Solar New Moon Eclipse falling at the end of Aries at 29 degrees.
If the March New Moon is at the beginning of Aries and the April New Moon Solar Eclipse at the end, chances are, whatever comes up for us on the March New Moon will only be part of the story. The rest of the story will be revealed to us under that potent and powerful Solar Eclipse come April.
To have two lunar cycles in Aries indicates a strong, bold, and fiery time ahead where we are encouraged to make leaps and fearless choices. The Universe is on our side, bringing new opportunities but also the confidence and motivation to take hold of those opportunities.
Aries New Moon and Pluto
Shortly after this New Moon on March 23, Pluto moves into Aquarius for the first time in over 200 years. This move of Pluto is one of the most significant cosmic events of 2023, and falling right after the New Moon indicates more fresh energy building for us.
Pluto moving into Aquarius is a once-in-a-lifetime energy and indicates a new cycle opening for us on both a personal and collective level.
Pluto represents transformation and power. It can bring destruction, but through that destruction, we are able to rebirth something new and far more powerful.
With Pluto moving so close to the New Moon, it seems whatever new beginning is opening for us may have a slightly Plutonian flavor. Something may need to burn, but a rebirth from the ashes is destined to follow.

How to Use the Energy of the Aries New Moon
With creative energy high under this New Moon, it is a fantastic time to plant seeds and think about what you would like to draw into your life. If there is something you would like to manifest, this is the New Moon to do it!
Use this energy to set intentions and to think about what habits, goals, or feeling-spaces you would like to bring into your life. Write them down and stick them somewhere you can see them every day. Make them loving, kind, and inspirational. Make them motivational to your being.
We may feel like we are born again under this energy. We may feel ourselves turning over a new page, and re-writing some of the rules we have chosen to live by.
Embrace all of this new fresh energy that is coursing through the cosmic skies. Use it to level up your life and bring fresh inspiration to every corner of your mind, body, and soul.
