Tomorrow is the New Moon in Aries which brings a lot of hot energy into the mix called life. If there ever was a time to put things behind you and move forward, this would be the time to do it.

If you’re like me, the last few months have been unusually grueling. You might have found yourself struggling with where you are right now and an inner desire to change something that is no longer doing you any good to keep holding onto.

While I am not an astrologer by any stretch, what I do know is that I can feel the shifts as they occur as I believe many other people also feel it but just don’t yet know how it’s connected to the actual cosmos. I don’t understand how the planets effect our being either BUT I am always open to using it to my advantage as I think you should as well.

For some of you, you may have already taken the first step towards torching the past and moving forward in a new direction. The Dark Moon or New Moon is my favorite phase. It’s in the darkness that we find light. I mean that literally but introspectively, the new moon represents rest, new cycles and a close to whatever energies presented themselves to you during the rest of the cycle and the time to manifest or ‘grow’ something new.

If you feel like participating in a low key ritual meant to direct your intentions towards a positive goal or let go of others, you can write your affirmations on a piece of paper and tuck it under your pillow. If that is not enough for you and you are carrying a lot of bad energy, you can write down the things you want to let go of and toss them in a fire.

It’s the perfect time for a bon fire so if you are feeling like the last few months have really run you down with all it’s highs and lows and uneven energy, take the night off and burn a fire and be the light. It is after all ALSO April Fools day, so just as cosmic joke, play along and be the light.

However you look at it, take heart that tomorrow is very symbolic for many people because it’s really such a great time to harness your ‘warrior’ spirit and burn whatever no longer serves you to the ground. If a fire is not in your cards you can also take some time to walk under the stars and practice gratitude or just admire them for all that they are while recognizing that YOU are also a star.
