“The March New Moon falls on the 27-28th, in the fiery sign of Aries. As the first New Moon of the astrological year, this is a potent time for new beginnings and for upgrading the parts of your life that no longer serve you.
All New Moons represent new beginnings to some degree, however the Aries New Moon is definitely the strongest and most powerful for setting intentions and starting fresh.
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries energy represents leadership, new ideas and taking action. Being a fire sign, Aries is all about making plans, pushing forward and charting a new course.
The Universe is only going to be giving you this fiery, fresh start energy for a few weeks, so make the most of it by setting intentions and finding ways to upgrade and update your life.
Leading up to the New Moon, the Universe is definitely going to be guiding you to ditch the old and embrace the new and the more open minded you can be, the easier it will be for you to transform your life.
In order to make positive changes in your life, you need to have a certain level of self-awareness. You need to have a certain understanding of what is working for you and what is bringing you down in life.
If you want change, if you want to create something new, if you want a fresh new start, this New Moon is there to support and help you every step of the way. All you need to do is set the intention and take that first step forward, everything else will fall into place after that.”

“The March 12th Full Moon falls in the earthy sign of Virgo. As the energy of this Full Moon lingers for the next two weeks, we are all going to enter into a time of self-healing.
Virgo is typically the sign associated with thinking. Deep thinking. Over thinking. Virgo thinking is often self-critical, however when channelled in the right way, Virgo thinking can be extremely enlightening.
Virgo energy is warrior energy. It represents strength and inner power. Virgo doesn’t need a man by her side, she has the power and strength to rise up alone.
Virgo comes into her strength by tapping into that inner warrior that lives inside of the heart.
We all have Virgo energy inside of us, we all have Virgo somewhere in our natal astrology chart, so chances are we are all going to feel the feminine power and strength arising from this Full Moon.
It is time to enter into warrior mode. Gone are the days of feeling sorry for yourself or being the victim. Gone are the days of getting irritated by every challenge or setback that life has brought you so far. Gone are the days of resisting what the Universe is trying to show you.
It is time to step up. It is time to rise up and claim your power, to claim your self-worth and to find your true inner strength.
On the night of the Full Moon, certain planets will shift into what astrologers call an irritated rectangle. As the name suggests, this Full Moon could bring irritations to the surface.
But this is not to irritate you, rather it is to help you clear away all that is no longer serving you. When things come to the surface it is because they are ready to be released, so instead of feeling frustrated, give yourself permission to step up and release.
As one of my favourite poets, Rumi says- if you are irritated by every rub how will you be polished?
And that is exactly what this Virgo Full Moon is offering us, she is offering us the chance to be polished and cleansed so we may rise up into the strength within.”
