3 Aries New Moon Rituals To Do On March 24th For Being Mindful & Making Careful Decisions, According To Astrology
Love, Zodiac

The new moon in Aries is here, and it comes with warnings: Stop and think before you make your moves. Consider what the consequences of your actions might be before you throw yourself into something that might be bigger than you are.

During this Aries new moon, you'll be working with the Aries influence, which can be hostile, aggressive and spontaneous. So, avoid spontaneity on this day, and think everything through.

You may want to end a relationship, but don't. Think about it first. You may also want to rush through something that needs attention. Don't rush; give it the attention it needs, and if that is a relationship, then stick with it and give it time.

This Aries new moon is not the time for hasty decisions.

Take care of your health, avoid too much salt or anything that might spike the blood sugars or blood pressure. Diet and exercise is always good, but be careful not to overdo it, especially on March 24th, which is when the new moon occurs.

Astrologically, this is not a good day for surgeries or intense medical procedures, either. But to help you harness this energy, here are three Aries new moon rituals we can indulge in on March 24th.

1. Practice mindful preparation.

The whole idea behind honoring a new moon is the concept of preparing in advance. What blossoms during the full moon is started on the new moon, so our first ritual is about preparation.

During this new moon in Aries, you have the optimum cosmic opportunity to do some Spring cleaning and mental planting for the future. Think about something you'd like to accomplish. Stand in front of the mirror and say this aloud, to yourself, while looking in your own eyes. There is something very profound about looking deeply into one's own eyes, while saying an intention aloud.

While at the bathroom sink, wash your hands, your face. Think of this as laying down the ground for the magic to come.

If the next month is about renewal, then you must envision the new growth, the new life that abounds. Clean off your sink area. Fold your towels. Bring in fresh flowers and place them in a small vase. Mindful preparation is what you do to mentally prepare for the newness to come.

2. Contemplate silently and remove negativity from your mind space.

Spending time in silence isn't as hard as it seems. In fact, silence is it's own kind of communication, and it is your higher self with whom you are communicating with, in this case.

Spend some time in nature, in your backyard, or simply looking out the window. Admire nature, don't criticize it. Let politics sink to the back of your mind. Let money problems vanish. 

Your new moon mind space has no room for negativity or the problems of the world. Allow yourself this rest from negativity.

When we contemplate, we admire and respect. We see the bigger picture. Silent contemplation is an act of love, and it is the perfect healing action during this cosmic transit. Spend a few hours, if possible, in silence.

Notice how you don't have to talk, you don't have to be on the phone. Get to know yourself again, and trust that, in silence, you are free to experience the peace that is always there, beneath the noise of the world.

3. Show loving-kindness to others, including yourself.

When we practice loving-kindness, we become fearless. When we honor the new moon, we are saying to the Moon that we believe in its mystery and power, and that by honoring it, we aspire to be one with it.

The Moon is a part of our human lives. Nobody hates the Moon! Let the Moon become your friend, and believe in it as you would a deity.

Let the mystery pervade your entire being, allow yourself the feeling of knowing that you are the Moon, as well as the stars, sun and cosmos. You are everything, and everything is love, so come to terms with this great loving power and shine it on everything and everyone you know.

The new moon is the perfect day to show others love and kindness. Smile at people today. Perform random acts of kindness. Pay it forward. Walk through this troubled world knowing that you are no different than the source of all love and light. Spread the good vibe around, and let gratitude lead the way!
