New Moon arrives in sidereal Aries on April 15th at 19:58 MT. Sun has just shifted to exaltation in Aries and both Sun and Moon will be in Ashwini nakshatra at the time of the new Moon.
The Vedic New Year begins on Friday April 13th at 20:19 MT as Sun arrives in Aries- though officially the start of the New Year comes with the New Moon on Sunday. As Sun and Moon begin anew, a fresh start arrives for the masculine and feminine within.
Sun completes a year long transit through the zodiac and steps into Aries on Friday, jump starting the beginning of a new cycle. Sun loves being in Aries because he can fully express his power, light, clarity and purpose. He is exalted in this sign because he can use his power at 100% capacity.
Expect more energy, strength and precision in the coming weeks. Use your power and clarity wisely and take life supporting action steps. Purify and clean up diet, behaviors and choices that are keeping you disempowered. Watch for anger and rage. What boundaries need to be clarified in order to honor your power more fully?
This is a powerful time of year to step into your inner strength, purpose and dharma. Take action steps to fulfill your dharmic path. Honor your power and strength. Clear and release what is holding you back from your strength, power and purpose- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Ask for resources, support and guidance in order to maximize this time.
Sidereal New Moon in Aries on Sunday April 15th jump starts the Vedic New Year, followed by the most auspicious day of the year Akshaya Tritiya on the 18th. On this day, Sun and Moon are both exalted, bringing energy, power and strength to all actions. This planetary alignment happens once per year. It is said that all actions will be fruitful on this day and expand exponentially. It is a powerful day to take dharmic steps and any action step you want a positive result from. Donate to charities, share, teach, connect and offer your services.
Renewal, awakening, release and opening are arriving. Use this time wisely! Step into your power! Get new results and make more empowered choices! Awaken the light within.
The new Moon is in Ashwini nakshatra, the domain of the Ashwini-Kumara twins. Ayurvedic experts, the Kumara twins support healing, transformation and awakening through the creative and healing arts. The symbol of this constellation is a horse's head, which expresses the strength and power possible within this portion of the sky. The influence of this nakshatra awakens the immense vitality and wisdom of the horse. Horses create an antivenom that heals snake bites, symbolizing their power to fight poison- especially physically. What poisons need to be healed and released within? What purification and clarity does your body need? What poisons are you ready to eradicate from your life? Clear the body of the past and make space for the new. Keep the gut clear and support the digestion of the mental body.
In the cycle ahead, relationships, support and stability are the primary focus. Seek new balance and integration between self and other. Clean up relationship messes within and attend to the relationship with self. Where are you burning yourself out? Who and what are you allowing to burn up your life force energy? What behaviors, choices and actions are keeping you less than vital? Where do you need to reconnect within your body in order for more strength, support and stability within?
The process of integration, alignment and gathering support will require that you retrace your steps and cover old ground. Relationships will ask you to revisit and recalibrate in order for you to gather the insights and wisdom you seek. Build a solid support system by getting clear on what you need and reaching out for the resources, guidance and team members you need. There are new answers arriving. Create space for the clarity and be specific about your desires. You will be asked to restructure your heart and find a new way of relating. Learn to love with boundaries and honor your sacred inner temple above all.

How do you know if you are disempowered, disconnected from your inner source?
When your breath is short, body is tight and mind is running the show, you are likely disconnected from your inner wisdom and power.
This may present itself through emotional body reactions, mental stories that seem to be on repeat in your head, and physical body responses that constrict you, leaving you closed off to possibility, options, new choices.

Create an image of what it feels like to be empowered, connected and feeling your inner strength. What colors, textures and images arrive? Using craypas, paints or pencils, create an image of your power. Create an image that expresses this feeling using colors, textures and shapes. Allow 20 minutes at minimum for this nourishment image. Title your image.
Use your image to inspire a movement exploration. Let your body move in response to your image with the intention of "moving with your feelings". What feelings emerge for you during your dance? What awareness? Allow 5 to 10 minutes for this movement exploration. I encourage you to extend this time frame as you recycle this process.
